Rules from God

There's a precious lady in my Sunday school class....
Ms. Norma Watson....
who has been thru so much.
Before I met her, she had a lung transplant....and just recently had surgery for colon cancer. Even with all of her health problems....she's in Sunday school...."big church"....attends on Wednesday nights....Sunday nights....and is our church Librarian!!!
She is such a wonderful inspiration to me.
I received the following in an e-mail from her and wanted to share it with you all. Even if you've read it before...it bears repeating!!!
Rules from God

1. Wake Up !!
Decide to have a good day.
"Today is the day the Lord hath made; let us rejoice and be glad in it"
Psalms 118:24

2. Dress Up !!
The best way to dress up is to put on a smile.
A smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks.
"The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at outward appearance; but the Lord looks at the heart."
I Samuel 16:7

3 . Shut Up!!
Say nice things and learn to listen.
God gave us two ears and one mouth, so He must have meant for us to do twice as much listening as talking.
"He who guards his lips guards his soul."
Proverbs 13:3

4. Stand Up!!.....
For what you believe in.
Stand for something or you will fall for anything.
"Let us not be weary in doing good; for at the proper time, we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good..."
Galatians 6:9-10

5. Look Up !!...
To the Lord
"I can do everything through Christ who strengthens me."
Philippians 4:13

6. Reach Up !!...
For something higher.
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path."
Proverbs 3:5-6

7. Lift Up !!...
Your Prayers.
"Do not worry about anything;
Philippians 4:6

In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!


  1. Those are nice rules to follow!

  2. #5 is on the flip side of my business cards..hey that doesn't sound good..it should be on the front side!


Kind words are like honey—
sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.
Proverbs 16:24
