Heads up and a reminder to pray

Somehow my husband and I had the same person leave a comment on our last posts with links - I deleted the comment this morning but if you happen to get a feed or for some reason can still see the comment, don't click on any of the links! They're in characters - and they lead to, in my husband's words, "gross" websites.

This annoys me so much. I really can't understand why people do things like that. Even when you don't go looking for gross things they're out there and you can't keep others from trying to get them to you. I know I can't keep Ruby from the world completely but I can try! Of course, then I wonder if there's a balance I have to strike. If she's totally sheltered will she go looking for the world? This is one of those issues that reminds me how glad I am to know other mom's (including mine!) that have raised kids who turned out alright. Oh, and it reminds me to pray also.

"Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God." Romans 8: 26-27

I was just going to post the part of this next set of verses that says "be constant in prayer" but the section is just so good and I need to be reminded of all of it. Take a moment and consider what your life, others lives and the world would look like if we lived like this.

"9Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. 10 Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. 11Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. 12 Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. 13Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality. 14Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them. 15Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. 16Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight. 17Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. 18If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. 19Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, "Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord." 20To the contrary, "if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head." 21Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good." Romans 12: 9-21

In case you don't think you'll be able to remember to pray all the time you can leave yourself a note, get it tattooed, or send yourself an email in the future. That's right, there's a website that allows you to write yourself an email that will be sent to you in the future! Check it out at FutureMe.org!
