Song, "The Lord's Prayer"


Two friends were walking through the desert.
In a specific point in the journey, they had an argument, and Friend One slapped Friend Two in
the face. Friend Two was hurt, but-without saying anything-wrote in the sand:


They kept on walking until they found an oasis, where they decided to relax in the cool water. Friend Two started drowning, and Friend One pulled him from the water and saved him. When he recovered from the fright, Friend Two wrote on a stone:


Friend One asked Friend Two, "Why, after I hurt you, did you write in the sand, and now you write on a stone?" Friend Two, smiling, replied, "When a friend hurts us, we should write it down in the sand,
where the winds of forgiveness can erase it; when something great happens, we should engrave it in the stone of the memory of the heart, where no wind can erase it."


Being Virtuous Women

PROVERBS 12:4 -- kjv --
"A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones."

PROVERBS 31: 10 - 31 -- kjv "Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.
She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar. She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens. She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms. She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night. She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff. She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy. She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet. She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple. Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land. She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant. Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gate." --kjv
