Dessert anyone?

If you’ve just dropped in for the first time , “Welcome, Welcome, Welcome” lol.   Earlier this chocolate and cream layer cakemonth, I began talking about saying “No Thanks” and “I’ll pass” during this Thanksgiving Holiday season .   Now,  I find myself back at the table on this Thanksgiving Eve.  

For me, a great meal is  just incomplete without something sweet.To some, gossip is a juicy morsel.  It may be tempting, but I prefer the truth.   I am just wired that way.  Any way, Gossip has an aftertaste. (lol)    I find the truth is generally funny and  profitable to give my time and attention to.  And Bible Proverbs are like little candied “truth-drops.”   Have one?

candiesThe hoary head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness. Proverbs 16: 31     There is no fool like an old fool. lol      Age    wisdom.    Sad but true. 

As a jewel of gold in a swine’s snout, so is a fair woman which is without discretion.  Proverbs 11:22 KJV  As my grandmother would say, “Pretty is as pretty does.”   and ” Err on the side of caution.”

It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman and in a wide house. Proverbs 25:24 KJV    Peace is priceless.

And one of  the first proverbs I put into practical use is:

 A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards. Proverbs 29:11KJV (emphasis added)    Silence is GOLDEN.  . .  and  You can’t un-ring a bell. lol

punch

punch anyone?

On tomorrow, if you find yourself sitting at a table with a “turkey”, consider this:    “Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him.” (Proverbs 26:4 KJV ) .  And  for goodness sake, please determine in advance, so say “No Thank you”  to .  .  .  . .
