Wise Words Wednesday

Wise Words Wednesday – 2/2/11

Today’s Wise Words Wednesday is going to be an Old School song from DC Talk. It is called Luv is a Verb. I have been so saddened to see a lot of relationships fail because they can’t remember love is an action.

Pullin’ out my big black book
Cause when I need a word defined that’s where I look
So I move to the L’s quick, fast, in a hurry
Threw on my specs, thought my vision was blurry
I looked again but to my dismay
It was black and white with no room for grey
Ya see, a big “V” stood beyond my word
And yo that’s when it hit me, that luv is a verb

(chorus 1)
Words come easy but don’t mean much
When the words they’re sayin’ we can’t put trust in
We’re talkin’ ’bout love in a different light
And if we all learn to love it would be just right

(chorus 2)
Hey, tell me haven’t ya heard?
Luv, is a serious word
Hey, I think it’s time ya learned
I don’t care what they say
I don’t care care what ya heard
The word luv, luv is a verb

Down with the dc Talk, d- d- down with the dc Talk
Are you down with the dc Talk, d- d- down with the dc Talk

Thinkin’ of a way to explain-o
Cause ya’ know when I’m flowin’ like a bottle of Drain-o
Simple and plain, L-O-V-E
Ain’t all that junk that ya see on TV
Put soaps on a rope cause they ain’t worth copin’ with
It’s a myth that there ain’t no hope and
Luv is enough if it’s unconditionally
Givin’ now you’re living out the Great Commission

(repeat choruses 1 and 2)

Back in the day there was a man
Who stepped out of Heaven and he walked the land
He delivered to the people an eternal choice
With a heart full of luv and the truth in His voice
Gave up His life so that we may live
How much more luv could the Son of God give?
Here is the example that we oughtta be matchin’
Cause luv is a word that requires some action

(repeat chorus 1)

(repeat chorus 2 x4)

New Year, New Me!

It’s a new year and it will be a new me. 2010 was a good but rough year for me. I am determined to make 2011 a much better one. Last year I suffered my share of depression and had my share of feeling sorry for myself and well to be honest I didn’t like it. My husband always told me when I put my mind to something I am able to stick to it. Here is the plan, I am going to blog more about the positives in my life and my struggles, but do my best to be more positive then negative. I am going to put God in the equation. Each day will have a new theme to my blog. I am hoping this will keep it as uplifting as I can. But since I am a busy mom of two, I will not promise to post daily. I will do my best.

Here is my plan for my blog:

Sunday: Spiritual SundayThis day can contain anything God has shown me or Bible verse that stands out to me.

MondayMenu MondayThis day will by my weekly menu list.

Tuesday: Time Out TuesdaySince I work on Tuesday I do not plan to post anything Tuesday.  I am also taking this one step farther and the computer will not be turned on at all this day.

Wednesday: Wise Words WednesdayThis day will contain some wise words.  They will be anything from quotes I like from anyone or from me or from God.  Some will be serious, some will be funny, some will be sad etc… Depends on what moves me.

Thursday: Take it off ThursdayThis day will be my diet update.  I will be posting later tonight about my plans.  Trust me it will not be any crash diet deal, I plan to make it a life altering plan.

FridayFamily FridayI also work Fridays, my plan on this will be to post something positive, uplifting about my family.  It could be a story or it could be just a picture.

SaturdaySecond Look SaturdayI will use Saturday to review my week.  How did I do reaching my 2011 goals.
