He who loves a pure heart and whose speech is gracious will have the King for his friend. Proverbs 22:11

Every Friday morning, I get the girls up extra early to get to school by 7 am for Girlz 4 God.  G4G was started by a local Rockwall couple as a girls bible study for those in 6th - 8th grade.  I'm amazed that every week, we have around 40 girls that get up early to grow in God's word.  

The G4G is theme is 'THRPPGEW" (pronounced thurp-g -yew), based on Philippians 4:8, 'Finally brothers, whatever is True, Honorable, Right, Pleasing to God, Pure, Good, Excellent and Worthy of praise, think on these things'.  

In our series on purity, we discussed this week what it means to have 'pure speech'.  We talked with the girls about how you cannot take back words - once they are out, the harm is done.  We used a tube of toothpaste, squeezing the toothpaste out and challenging one of the girls to try and put the toothpaste back in.  She had a funnel, spoon, knife, toothpick and several other 'tools'. but was unable to get the toothpaste back in the tube.  

What a critical time for our girls - they are exposed to so many worldly things.  It's so crucial to continue to set a firm foundation for them to draw from as they have more freedom to make their own decisions.

Carol of the Bells

Emily missed her Fireside Christmas Piano Recital this year - this is the piece she would have played.  Carol of the Bells - one of my faves!

A Rare Sight...

Emily playing the piano because she wants to, not because I'm nagging her to practice.  She's working on this piece for the upcoming Hymn Festival in February.  


Family...  it conjures up different emotions for different people.  For some, it may be dread, or anger or resentment.  For me, the thought of my family makes me joyful.  I can hardly go a day without talking to mom or dad - they are my friends.   I even enjoy being around my baby brother these days - not to mention his sweet wife and their darling Bailey.   I can't imagine life without Lonnie, Gloria and Emily.  They have become such a big part of who I am.  I am truly thankful for the gift of family and what it means to me.
