lyssssss-deactivated20110413-de asked: hey lady :) i'm assuming that you want ones that denote their gender? i may be wrong lol one umm well one of my favorite verses (and the one that i have up at school) is psalm 45:10-15, i like this version best; "Oh my darling, you are intimately selected, divinely beautiful, intricately woven, destined, ordained, and understood. My jealousy for you is resolute and you are still the object of My pursuit. O daughter, consider and giver ear; forget your people and your father's house. The King is enthralled by your beauty; honor Him for He is your Lord." that may be too...wordy and intense though lol One i have at home is 1 peter 3:4, which i also love. or you could always use something from proverbs 31 about a woman of character being more valuable than rubies orrrrrrr the one about how a woman who fears the Lord should be praised. haha umm i cant think of anymore but if i do i'll let you know.
and for owen :) hmm the first that popped into my mind was joshua 1:9. there are ones about how the righteous are as bold as a lion, i forget where (psalms?), umm isaiah 40 or 41 has some candidates, haha umm i can't think of anything else. haha i'm no help, sowwe.
oh and the one that will go in my home someday will be acts 20:24... "But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God."
long message, sorry. miss you! :)
Not long at all, and confirmed exactly what I was thinking! How awesome is that! Owen: Joshua 1;9, or prov 3:5-7 or Phil 4:13,
And Sadie- 1 peter 3;4
Check out this website, her stuff is pretty awesome, but I’m having Christie Stebs actually paint on our walls, bc their old and horse hair plaster and nothing sticks to them!
One she’s doing for the living room; Eucharisteo…
“After He took bread, gave thanks, and broke it and gave it to them…”
In the original language, “gave thanks” is written eucharisteo. He gave thanks. He broke apart. He gave. The bread. Himself. Eucharisteo.
The root word of eucharisteo in the Greek is charis meaning gift or grace. He took the bread and saw it as a gift. He held it and gave thanks. Is not all we have been given us by the Giver of all? Do we see the common like bread and drink as pure grace, unmerited gifts from He who can do nothing but give? Do we take up each moment of life in this way, both the mundane and the trials of life?
Charis also forms the root of the Greek word chara, meaning joy. Those three words…grace, thanksgiving, joy…come together. In all circumstances, even in our greatest trial, we can receive from Him this sustenance. Now served to us with nail-scarred hands, first we taste of grace—that He delights in us in His generous benevolence. Then we savor it with thanksgiving that both springs up from our spirit and nourishes us right down to our souls. And our dessert? Joy! Joy…from thanksgiving…from grace, freely bestowed on us, His beloved.
With the taking, with the thanking, comes the breaking. As we feast upon His eucharisteo, so we then take our lives…our time, our talents, our treasure…and in the power of grace and in the spirit of thanksgiving, “break” them to share them with a hungry world around us—our spouse, our children, our extended family, our community, our world. It is our gift…not waiting until we think they deserve it or have earned it, but because freely we have received; therefore, freely we give.
Eucharisteo…pretty life changing and amazing! I have a book, when you’re not busy being a college student that I think you would like but would also challenge you as well, as it challenged me. “One THousand Gifts”.
Thanks for you input. I’m missing you, especially today! Have a good chapel tomorrow:)
ps. THIS was a long message!
