Greetings, if you’re new to this series, welcome, you can check out all the post regarding this topic here. ***   Sloth has always been portrayed as the lazy person.  veggin’ out on the couch, eating chips, and the room is a complete mess, shoo, they are a complete mess!  But there’s more to it than that.   What is Sloth? Sloth: reluctance to work or make an effort;...

The Deadly Seven — Lust

If Wednesday is the hump day of the week, then Lust is the hump sin of the series — okay,  bad joke.  You can check out the rest of the Deadly Seven, by clicking here for the list. Moving right along now, Lust.  Most of us have a pretty good idea what Lust is.  I mean, we see it talked about a lot, and in our society that is a sexual society, it’s hard not to know it.   What is Lust? Very strong sexual desire: he knew that his lust forher had returned....

The Deadly Seven — Envy

Three weeks and going strong!  If this is your first time here, welcome to the series.  You can catch up on the rest of the series by starting at the introduction found here. I seemed to be somewhat obsessed with this, because I also wrote about Envy here as well.  For some, it may seem like I already covered this, but there will be some new elements to this. Defining Envy   Envy is defined as: (1)The immoderate desire to acquire good that belong to others for oneself; even unjustly. (2) A feeling of discontented or...

The Deadly Seven – Pride

We are going to start this series with the mother of all the Deadly Sins–Pride.  Why would we consider pride as the mother of all?  Well it is pride that usually leads us down the slippery slope of all the other vices. When I first thought of pride, I always would think of someone who was full of themselves. The image that conjured in my mind was of a person who head was up, nose in the air, and they thought highly of themselves. In the movie Seven, they depicted pride as the woman who had to choose between calling for help...

Sunday Prayer: Dignity

I love walking in the afternoons around my neighborhood and seeing the children come out of school with their book bags and so excited to tell their parents of their day.  The first look of excitement to share practically everything is a beautiful sight.  Even though we home school, I encourage my daughter to share with her father the best part of her day.  Her experiments, and even read something new that she would love to share with him. Of course this is the early years of school, and soon the school children will be...

A Closer Look At The Deadly Seven – Introduction

Do you remember when the movie Seven came out?  I think I was still in junior high, but I was drawn to this movie and watched it several times (yes even at that young age).  To think and to learn that there are seven vices that are usually the root to all sin (or evil doing) in this world, and we knew about them all along.  A new mini series that I will be starting on my blog is a deeper look at the Seven Deadly Sins, and I’m going to share them with you in a different way.  The movie Seven showed us the most...

Sunday Prayer For Ebola Victims

I’m sure that you have heard about what is going on in the world. Whole communities are being changed as loved ones are falling ill and dying to the deadly virus of Ebola. A few days ago, we learned that a man who recently traveled to that area of the world went to emergency room seeking help. He is now receiving care and they are closely monitoring his progress as well as everyone who he came in contact with. My mind cannot help but think about families being torn apart and communities decimated by this virus. My heart is grieving...

LTML 39 : Losing Count

  Lost Count– I’m going to be perfectly honest here, I already lost count to what week I’m on, and I know I have not taken that many “artsy” photos. Yes, I know I have a log, but for some week I’m one week behind (since this is week 40 on the calendar year). Aside from doing what I usually do, photography has taken a back burner. Not that I want it to, but because everything else seems to be a priority. Chaos Begins –The end of the year (starting with October) is hectic for us. Planning...
