Happy Wednesday, Friends!


  1. {{{Big smiles}}}} I had no idea about Matthew 16:2-3. smiles

  2. I did not know so many of these came from the bible!

  3. Enjoyed this. Oh I have so many sayings too that I have heard over my lifetime. One of my granny's favorite's was, "If there's a Will then there's a way". Have a good day dear friend. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  4. Oh yes! Great post Debbie and I find myself saying "if it's God's will" a lot these days.

  5. Wow, these were all so good...and straight from God's Word. That is great! I am so glad you shared these with us. Very enlightening to see that they come from scripture.

  6. I LOVE this post!! Matthew 16:2-3 is one that I say every time there is red in the sky, whether morning or night!

  7. Lots of things come from the Bible that people say all the time and they don't even know it. : )
    Here is another one, though not quoted exactly its origin is Bible based. A little birdie told me.
    From Ecclesiastes 10:20 - for a bird of the air shall carry the voice, and that which hath wings shall tell the matter.


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