I am happily married to an amazing military man who spent 9 years enlisted and is now an Officer in the US Army. We have two amazing boys who are not so little any more! They still infuse every moment of every day with creativity and energy, and make my life an adventure.  I was educated at home, and am now teaching our children - second generation homeschoolers! I try every day to become more like Jesus Christ, and to love like HE does. If you want you can try and catch me at bethylovesandy@yahoo.com

My Blog Title Verse

"For the Lord gives wisdom. From His mouth come knowledge and understanding." Proverbs 2:6 NKJV 
The Message translation puts it this way "God gives out Wisdom free, is plainspoken in Knowledge and Understanding."

A little bit of GREEN

My friend Carrie has very graciously lived with my "green" nudges for years now. So, whenever she sees something "green" she thinks of me. She sent me this link, and I must say that I was very impressed by this blog. Being green is so "trendy" that I think some Christians reject it outright, merely because it is popular. God commanded us to take care of the beautiful earth he created FOR US. I don't see how being trendy would in any way negate that commandment. I love THE MESSAGE translation of Gen 1:28. God blessed them: "Prosper! Reproduce! Fill Earth! Take charge! Be responsible for fish in the sea and birds in the air, for every living thing that moves on the face of Earth." Responsible is a HUGE word, and I can't help but respect it. 
 Anyway, check out the link, and try to read it with an open heart and ears tuned to God's still quiet voice. You never know what God is going to use to speak to your heart.

So, I had a comment ready earlier but I had to go really quickly...so...anyway.
We are trying, we have our bins set up, but aren't too consistent about taking the stuff when they get full, so then, with nowhere to put the stuff....well...
What has got me thinking more is the thought of all the electronics and appliances. If I throw away a paper bag, well, that will eventually decompose...the same with food or stuff like that.
But, GRACIOUS...what about that dryer in our basement?? What about that other dryer Corey already took off? Now, THAT is a scary thought...where will it go? What is an alternative?
I think so many people throw stuff out because they just don't know what else to do with it.
I know I can take my cardboard and plastic and all, but what about the "junk" that doesn't have a bin at the recycling center? Educate us please!!
