Proverbs 31 3-10

proverbs 31:3-10

I take time over the weekends to spend with my husband, but I’m just now getting around to posting again for the week! We went on a weekend getaway to one of our favorite places, Jekyll Island. It is on the coast of Georgia about an hour south of Savannah GA.

I’m using today as a catch up in my 31 days of Proverbs 31 by looking at Proverbs 31 3-10.

3 Give not your strength to [loose] women, nor your ways to those who and that which ruin and destroy kings.

4 It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine, or for rulers to desire strong drink,
5 Lest they drink and forget the law and what it decrees, and pervert the justice due any of the afflicted.
6 Give strong drink [as medicine] to him who is ready to pass away, and wine to him in bitter distress of heart.
7 Let him drink and forget his poverty and [seriously] remember his want and misery no more.
8 Open your mouth for the dumb [those unable to speak for themselves], for the rights of all who are left desolate and defenseless;
9 Open your mouth, judge righteously, and administer justice for the poor and needy.
10 A capable, intelligent, and [a]virtuous woman—who is he who can find her? She is far more precious than jewels and her value is far above rubies or pearls.

I don’t know about you, but I’m getting a alcohol vibe from these verses. I can see some ways that drinking would be a good thing. Like in a celebration of someone’s life as in verse 6 or to celebrate a marriage as in Jesus’ first miracle of turning water into wine at the wedding in Cana, but there are also some issues with alcohol. Like when someone drinks to forget their problems like in verse 7. Drinking to forget your problems just causes more problems in life. You start to rely on the alcohol. In verses 8 and 9 I feel is saying to give a voice to those that can’t speak out for themselves. Verse 10 is where Proverbs 31 starts to talk about the Godly woman. A woman that is smart, capable, and virtuous is hard to find because she is more precious and valuable than any jewel.

Be Back Soon

Posted on

Hey y’all! I just wanted to let you know that I will be back very soon! Mr. RCGG and I took a weekend to go to the beach! I’ll get caught up on my 31 days of Proverbs 31 this next week! I hope you had a great weekend and I will be back on Tuesday! In the meantime, here’s one of my favorite pictures I took during our trip. It’s the Sidney Lanier Bridge at sunset from the Jekyll Island fishing pier.

Admiration

Posted on

During the month of October, I’m also participating in the Ultimate blog challenge. So there will be days that I have more than one post up during the day! I’m going to be a very busy person this month huh? I’m starting with this challenge today.

UBC

 

Everyone has someone they admire. You can let that person know or admire them from afar! There are many people in my life that I admire. Some of them know and some don’t. I think it depends on if you fell comfortable enough with that person that you tell them!

Growing up I never thought of my mother as a friend. She was my mom. She was the one that told me what to do and not to do because she wanted what was best for me in my life. She may have grounded me when I brought home a bad grade, but now I know she just wanted me to do well in school. She may have told me not to do something that I wanted to do. I know now that she didn’t want me to get hurt if it turned out to be dangerous.

Over the past ten years, I have realized that my mom is my best friend. She’s the one that has been there for me my whole life. She’s the one that knows what my heartbeat sounds like from the inside. When I moved to Georgia, I called home every week. Just to talk about things. As soon as I got settled in to every day life in a new state the call started to drop. Now, I don’t call as much, but that doesn’t mean I don’t still admire my mom! She’s my mom! A girl will always need her mom no matter how far away life takes her!

A Mother’s Love is a Beautiful Thing

A mother’s love is a beautiful thing.

A mother is a child’s first friend.

Love from a mother has no end.

A child’s love for a mother has no end.

A mother is a child’s first friend.

All the happy moments

in a child’s life

a mother is there.

All the bad moments

in a child’s life

a mother is there.

A mother is there through it all.

A mother’s love is a beautiful thing.


31 Days of a Proverbs 31 Life

Posted on

Are you coming by from 31 days? I hope you check out my About Me to learn a little bit more about the RCGG. I’m looking forward to spending this time with God and my readers!

31daysbutton

I enjoy spending time with my God and I enjoy the blessing he gives me each day. I keep a blessings journal where I make a list of what God has blessed me with that day! I just started this in September so I really have just begun. I’m looking forward to these lists becoming longer as I continue. Maybe one day I’ll share a few lists from this journal.

As I read today’s verses, it was very hard to only use verse one. If I left it at that it would sound confusing because you wouldn’t know what Lemuel’s mother taught him.

 

Proverbs3112Anyways, I decided to use two verses to start out because verse one really wasn’t much and I didn’t think it made sense without verse two.

I think that in these verses a mother is telling her son to always look to God. No matter what is going on in your life ask for God’s guidance. You may not have instant results, but in time He will give you the answers He wants you to have. It may not be what you are wanting to hear, but it is what He wants in your life!

As I continue my Proverbs 31adventure, I’m looking forward to learning what God has to say about being a Godly woman. I’m also going to include some of my favorite passages from Fawn Weaver’s book Happy Wives Club. I think a Happy Wife is a Godly woman. God works in your life even if you don’t know it! He has given us His Word to share with others!

Since this is my first post on this topic, I hope that I will get a little better at professing my faith in God on my blog. I talk about it, but this is the first time I’m going in depth with it. I hope you enjoy my 31 days of Proverbs 31.

I have gotten so behind in my blogging this past week so I’m playing catch up to get everything in before the end of this week! Mr. RCGG and I are going on a long over due full weekend on Friday and I can’t wait!

Are you ready for this week’s party? Last week I forgot to add the link up code which made it RCGG not have your posts! Oops! I have made sure that I put it in this week! So because of that I don’t have features this week!

Monogrammed Fall Wreath

Posted on

Fall is in the air and I am so excited! I love the crisp air and smell of apple and pumpkin mixing together! We aren’t big on scary Halloween decorations, so we go more towards the Fall decor. Scarecrows, pumpkins, orange, yellow.

I started making this wreath two years ago, but never finished it because it needed something. It started out looking like this:SAMSUNGI wrapped the orange and yellow ribbon around the wreath gluing it with E6000 glue as I went along. It needed something else though and I was going to put a bow on it. Bows and i do not get along for anything! I enjoy crafting, but I cannot make a bow to save my life!

After seeing my friend, Jen’s wreath with her last name initial I knew what mine needed. I found an S at Michael’s and Mr. RCGG spray painted it for me. 20140915_003016I have no idea why this picture is sideways. It is right side up on my computer. Oh Well!

20140915_003451Really? Sideways again? Anyways, I glued the scarecrow to the wreath and Mr. RCGG spray painted the S.

2014-09-27 13.29.11 (2)I love how it turned out and I can’t wait to put it on the door in a few weeks!


The Southern Special 25

I haven’t been around much this week! I’m not exactly too sure what happened there, but I I’ll just go with the old blogger stand by of life happened! Haha! I’ll be getting back to writing on a regular basis next week. I probably shouldn’t have taken that break over the first week of the month. It’s been a little hard to want to write again!

 

For the rest of the week, I’m going to be posting a little behind the blogger questions! I did this a long time ago for a month and it was a great get to know you! I thought I would share a little more about what’s behind the RCGG!

 

I;m not able to get my features and social media links up again for some reason. Since getting my new computer I have had a hard time keeping things linked. Oh well, I guess that happens sometimes! Here’s the party:

Box Mix Caramel Apple Cookies

Posted on

I love anything caramel apple! My favorites being the caramel apple shake from Steak-n-Shake and caramel apple pops. When I saw this box mix for caramel apple cookies  at the store, I knew I had to make them! They have a great apple flavor and a hint of caramel.

Just follow the directions on the box to make these cookies!

Stir together the mix, eggs, and slightly melted butter.

I ended up using a mixer to get it all incorporated into a dough. Then used my hands to make sure it was well mixed into a dough.

Bake in a preheated oven until golden.

 I have a from scratch recipe for caramel apple cookies that you check out here. I love this recipe because it is very easy to make.
