One year ago today,,,,

One year ago today my sweet Big Baby Brother Boaz was born!!
Boaz is also walking really good!!! He learned about 3 weeks ago.

I remember right before he was born, (I was getting kind of nervous.) Mommy's midwife came over around lunch time(about 1:00) checked how she's doing and said, "I think I'm going to hang around here for awhile." (The midwife lives an hour away!) Anyway, Momma had Boaz around 3:45. He was as cute as can be and small,,, well, he was small compared to what he is now!

These are not recent pictures of him.

I will post some pictures of his miniature Birthday party soon! (Elise made some flan but I don't think Boaz can have that!! :P

Dedicated Daughter,

Ephesians five and six


What 'stuck out' to me in chapter five,

4.Though some tongues just love the taste of gossip, Christians have better uses for language than that. Don't talk dirty or silly. That kind of talk doesn't fit our style. Thanksgiving is our dialect.
TMV (The Message)

Chapter seven,
7.And work with a smile on your face, always keeping in mind that no matter who happens to be giving the orders, you're really serving God.

1.Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.

So, tell me what you thought about Ephesians! Your favorite verses or just anything that stuck out!

Ephesians 3 and 4

We were so busy yesterday! I didn't have anytime to blog! :o( It took me awhile to get my chores done, then we went to the park. Then we went to dinner at the Wilson's house, and got home late. So, I had no time to blog. :-D

All right, ANYWAY! Some verses that stuck out to me in chapter 3:

17.Then Christ will live in you through faith. I also pray that love may be the ground into which you sink your roots and on which you have your foundation.
18.This way, with all of God's people you will be able to understand how wide, long, high, and deep his love is.
19.You will know Christ's love, which goes far beyond any knowledge. I am praying this so that you may be completely filled with God.
20.Glory belongs to God, whose power is at work in us. By this power he can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine.

Verses from chapter 4:
2, 29, 32, 27:

2.Always be humble, gentle and patient, bearing with one another in love,

27.Neither give place to the devil.

29.Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers

And be ye kind one to another , tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.

(Those were all different kinds of translations.)

Ephesians 2

Chapter two seemed to be talking about Faith and being one in Christ. Nothing really grabbed my attention though. The only verse that did a is verses 8-10:

8.For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,
9.not of works, lest anyone should boast.
10.For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.


My bible has commentary and this is what the commentary said about verses 8-9:

For verse 2:8, you have been saved,

Salvation is as completed action that has a present effect. In his earlier letters Paul usually refers to salvation either as a future event (Rom. 5:9-10) or as a present process (1Cor. 1:18; 2Cor. 2:15). One expectation is Rom. 8:24, where Paul puts salvation in the past, but qualifies it as needing a completion at Christ's return.

Verse 2:9, Works,

Only faith, not works, can bring us acceptance with God. But good works are the vital consequence and evidence of life with God (Titus 2:14; 3:8, 14; James 2:14-26) God chose us to make us holy sons and daughters and He has now fashioned us to be new bearers of His image, designed for the kind of the life that confirms to God's character.

Well I don't have much to say. :/ Maybe I will have more to say tomorrow.
