Words Mean a Lot - Let's Break it down


I have signed up to receive a word a day from Wordsmith. It's very helpful. They say if you can read the Bible you are a good reader.  I like to try out new words.  Not that I'm saying anything "new under the sun" but it does make for great conversation.  Normally people want to know what a word you said means.  My father Tyrone is a perfect example.  He is going back to school to get his degree.  When he read one of my articles he shared that I had taught him a new word.  The word was "cajole."  He asked me what it meant and I was glad to expound. They may not ask you outright but if they really want to know they will look it up and break it down so they can use it themselves. 

Just make sure you get the etymology on the word along with some examples.   Because the worst thing is pronouncing a new word incorrectly and not realizing or using the word inappropriately.  Wordsmith provides a pronunciation of the word in audio format as well as visual break down.  They also give great examples in sentences of the proper usage. So... have at it and learn some new ways to say what you mean today.

Re-Married - Unequally Yoked - Separated from God

           Check out all of Sheila Sims Books on You Tube @ Sheilasimsbooks.
          This has been a major issue for me as a Christian woman. As you are probably already aware I am married with children. However, I met my current husband Michael while married to someone else. There is no excuse for what transpired. The why doesn't matter but it happened and now that I am re-married with three children I have been tortured by the trespass of my sin. Like David in the Bible, I did a terrible sin against God. I'll go into the details progressively as I blog. But condemnation from myself and others who know me and the Word of God really took a toll. Once I realized the magnitude of my wrong I didn't know what to do about my situation. Should I leave my husband? Should I go back with the other husband? Should I just be alone? Would my children die?

          So many questions. On top of that, the new husband isn't saved as far as I can tell. I could only repent and rely on God's Word to deliver me from my own poor decisions. Although Sheila's book in the video above does correctly advise that there is forgiveness for this particular sin, I know for sure there is a terrible price to pay when disobeying God's Word. You only make it more difficult for yourself to live a life at peace with God. Peace is incredibly important as life continues. I'm no psychiatrist just experienced, and pleasing God is all that matters now. Being able to talk to Him and know that He is listening and approves of my life is big time important today.

Sheila's book sounds interesting.  I may have to do a review of that one. Check out her book at Amazon.com http://www.amazon.com/Divorce-Remarriage-Divorced-Christians-Remarried/dp/1608443973/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1321242127&sr=1-1#_
