Murder!



Dear Praying Friends,
I will be as sensitive as possible. There is a family who attended our church for about 2 years. They have almost all been saved and baptized in those 2 years.; but have not attended faithfully for about 6 months. They are in serious need of prayer! Their son - age 18- is being held in jail for the senseless murder of a police officer. While I am not saying that it is impossible that he is guilty; it is very hard for me to believe that he is the murderer. This act is completely opposite of the type of person we believe him to be. His aunt, who picked him up and very quickly and purposefully drove him to the police station so that he could answer any questions that they had for him, is convinced that he is innocent. The media is saying that he has confessed to the act; but his family says otherwise. I did not speak to him personally; but my husband did yesterday. We are praying for Officer Weatherford ' s family; please join us...but also pray for Tyler ' s family and for the truth to be revealed.
Above all We want the name of CHRIST to be magnified. The Enemy's purpose has been accomplished. He has stolen the peace of a community, he has killed a great man, one young man's life will be destroyed...potentially 2 young mens' lives will be destroyed. May we, the people of God, pray humbly for perfect Justice and Mercy!

Until Next Time,

Tinyla

Day by Day


Day by day, and with each passing moment,
Strength I find to meet my trials here;
Trusting in my Father’s wise bestowment,
I’ve no cause for worry or for fear.
He, whose heart is kind beyond all measure,
Gives unto each day what He deems best,
Lovingly its part of pain and pleasure,
Mingling toil with peace and rest.


Every day the Lord Himself is near me,
With a special mercy for each hour;
All my cares He fain would bear and cheer me,
He whose name is Counselor and Pow’r.
The protection of His child and treasure
Is a charge that on Himself He laid;
“As thy days, thy strength shall be in measure,”
This the pledge to me He made.

This song  has been on my heart and mind this week.
I just thought I would share.

Until next time,

Kindness Contest

I would like to share an idea with you all that has worked wonders for our home. We call it the "Ephesians 4:32 Project"...the kids call it the "Kindness Contest".
I got the idea for this from an article in the Above Rubies magazine that we get every couple of months.  I don't remember all the details of how their family played this game; but here is how it is going for us:

I have one big jar of beads. All the children have small jars (I got mine off of Amazon) with their names on them.  Anytime I hear or see one of them saying/doing something kind for someone else- they get a bead.  The only way they loose beads is if they tattle.  Very simple; but let me tell ya....it has worked wonders in our home.  Since we have begun this game I have become the "most beautifulest" person in the world and the best cook too!  (wink)  Also, I have observed children putting away one anothers' clothing, shoes, and toys.  They have even given away their candy in desire for a bead instead! One other stipulation I made in week 2 is that you can't boast on yourself and your good deeds, you must let someone else tell me of your kindness (let another man praise thee and not thine own lips...)  The reporter of kindness in turn gets a bead as well.

You might be wondering what the prize is for all of those beautiful beads...A Happy Meal or a Personal Pan Pizza from Pizza Hut at the end of the week. That's it! A Reward worth $5.00.
What a wonderful Blessing this has been for our family!!! Try it out and let me know how it works for you.  Comment below or email me tinylabeckles@yahoo.com
