Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. Ephesians 4:29
I had taken these pictures yesterday. So, when I got up this morning and read one of my favorite blogs I couldn't help making a comparison.

God does give us grace, but grace doesn't mean not trying. Jesus did not condemn the adulteress, but he did tell her "go, and sin no more."
Boone: "Smile Remi."
Remi Adria: "You smile!!"
So, if we "try" to keep our homes clean, shouldn't we be"trying" even harder to keep our minds clean? I get it! It is hard! But...
"The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever."
1 John 2:17
Produce fruit in keeping with repentance. Matthew 3:8
Boone: "You guys are doing great."
Remi Adria: "Shut up Boone."
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
While the kids were cleaning their minds... I mean their house, Bret was fixing their lunch.
OK, so we have this stupid mole problem every stinkin' summer!!! They make me want to cuss. : - )
I'll try anything once.
Man up Stafan!! Because, I'm not! Yuck!
I'm not Catholic, but like I said I'll try anything!!!
