Glimpses From Birthday Celebrations And The Proverbs Journey

Wow, October is flying right by!  This month is always incredibly full for us ~ amidst lots of work and activities and responsibilities are several family birthdays.  We have already celebrated my mom (with a fun surprise party for her 60th) and Jimmy (with a date day for the two of us and date night with friends)... next up is Trevor!

I have been enjoying continuing on in my Proverbs study, and hope you have too!  I am always struck by so many verses in each chapter.  I have gotten behind on updating, but here are some of the Proverbs that have stood out to me lately...

Proverbs 24

Proverbs 24:5 "The wise are mightier than the strong, and those with knowledge grow stronger and stronger."

Proverbs 24:17-18 "Don't rejoice when your enemies fall; don't be happy when they stumble.  For the Lord will be displeased with you and will turn His anger away from them."

Proverbs 25

Proverbs 25:17 "Timely advice is lovely, like golden apples in a silver basket."

Proverbs 25:28 "A person without self-control is like a city with broken-down walls."
