"You shall have no other gods before Me. You shall not make for yourself a carved image—any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments. You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain. Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it. Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the LORD your God is giving you. You shall not murder. You shall not commit adultery. You shall not steal. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s." (Exodus 20:3-17 NKJV) We make life way too difficult. For example, we try to figure out what we should do, how, and when we should do it. But, God already tells you that. All we have to do is read The Holy Bible for all our answers! It's like "God's Little Instruction Book." Mom even has a shirt that says, "When in doubt, read the instructions"...and has a picture of The Holy Bible in the center of the phrase. Mom also likes the fact the Bible is in the center, because the Bible should be the center of all that we say and do. AND, since it holds all our instructions, everything should point back to the Bible. The Holy Bible is now in every form to meet every need...large print, braille, audio tapes, different languages, etc. (note: it has yet to be translated into cat and dog, but we can listen to our humans' tapes.) So, instead of us all stressing ourselves out trying to figure out what do say and or do, let us all do the simple thing. Take a moment to breathe, open our Bibles and READ what we should do. Even better, let us memorize them so that we don't have to take the time to read. We will already know it in our hearts and minds. Love, Beau

Words for Good

"In the multitude of words, sin is not lacking, but he who restrains his lips is wise." (Proverbs 10:19 NKJV) The more one talks, the greater the chances of saying something that will either hurt someone, cause one to sin, and or make one look foolish. Humans are always in a huge rush, and that includes having conversations quickly so they can move onto the next activity. By rushing, one doesn't take time to stop and think about what he/she is saying, and therefore editing onesself. Words can build up or they can tear down. They can also confuse, which all of us furries know. All of us need to slow down, take time to think about what we are saying before we say it, and make sure that we are doing our best to build each other up, and not tear each other down, including ourselves....and isn't that what we all want in today's world?? Make our world a better place?! Love, Beau

Shout for Joy

"But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You; Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them; Let those also who love Your name be joyful in You." (Psalm 5:11 NKJV) We are surrounded by evildoers, tempters, enemies, and temptaions of our own making. But those who trust and love the Lord will be protected from harm, and defended, even if it's from ourselves. (After all, we CAN be our own worst enemy!) This is something that should bring one peace, and something to celebrate! So, let us rejoice, and "shout for joy." Love, Beau

Our Daily Bread

"Give us this day our daily bread." (Matthew 6:11 NKJV) Bread, is a basic food, especially in biblical times. It is often the core of any meal, and gives one sustinance. We "break bread" with friends and family, which also implies an emotional and spiritual aspect. Give us this bread...we don't ask to borrow, buy or trade for it. We humbly ask God just to give it to us. Humbling ourselves to the point of asking God to fulfill our basic needs teaches us compassion for one another, especially those who are less fortunate than us. Also we ask only for OUR daily bread, not the bread of others and only for what we need, and for no other thing...just what we need to sustain us. This verse also teaches to turn to God each and every day for our physical, spiritual, and emotional sustainence...and a reminder to be compassionate and caring towards others. God Himself describes His being with the bread and wine, in communion, that the bread represents his body...and when we take communion we are to remember his blood and body... and we need to take that one step further and remember that "our daily bread" is Christ, and ask for Him every day to sustain us and give us what we need. Love, Beau

Steadfastness of God

"The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever....Heaven and earth will pass away but My words will by no means pass away." (Isaiah 40:8; Matthew 24:35 NKJV) No matter what happens in this world, no matter how much one's world is turned upside down, shaken to the core, and ripped out from under you, God's word always stands fast and never fails. If God tells you He is going to always be with you and help you through things, He will. If He says that He will always be there to listen to you and to guide you, He will. No matter what is thrown at you in life, you can always turn to the word of God for comfort, for hope, for strength, for encouragement, and for peace. Those words always stay true and never change...and that in itself is comforting. Love, Beau
