Don't Fix Stupid with Stupid!

This is an article written by Max Lucado

There is a way that seems right,
but its end is the way to death (Proverbs 14:12).
One may give into temptation with this set of thoughts: "No one will know. I won’t get caught. I’m only human..."
Don’t make matters worse by doing something you’ll regret!
Years ago, a friend gave me this counsel: “Make a list of all the lives you would impact through your sexual immorality.” I did. Every so often I re-read it.
  • Denalyn.
  • My three daughters.
  • My son-in-law.
  • My yet-to-be-born grandchildren.
  • Every person who’s ever read one of my books or heard my sermons.
  • My publishing team.
  • Our church staff.
The list reminds me: one act of carnality is a poor exchange for a lifetime of lost legacy.
You don’t fix a struggling marriage with an affair or a drug problem with more drugs. You don’t fix stupid with stupid. Do what pleases God.
Turbulent times will tempt you to forget Him. Shortcuts will lure you. Don’t be foolish and don’t be na├»ve. Do what pleases God. Nothing more, nothing less!
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths.
Be not wise in your own eyes;
fear the Lord, and turn away from evil.
It will be healing to your flesh
and refreshment to your bones (Proverbs 3:5-8).

Yes, indeed.

Is Your Home Ready for the Holidays?

Resulta ng larawan para sa home for the holiday

With the holidays approaching, you may want to do some renovations to one or more rooms in your house. Somethings you might be able to do on your own; large complex projects will require the help of specialized services. Since you do not have a lot of time, you may need a way to get contractors fast who will do the work in a professional manner. 

You might begin with scouring magazines for ideas on getting your home ready for the holidays. With some exciting examples of creating a festive occasion, you realize a few of those ideas require home improvement projects. Some are DIY; others require work by a professional. Perhaps you need more space for extended family members coming from out of town. Now is a good time to begin working with a contractor. The long to-do list that has more additions than completions can be tackled in a few weeks' time with the pros. After delaying home projects because of work and family obligations, are ready to follow through on your plans – and add the new ideas you collected for upcoming special occasions. As long as the projects will not require more work than the time you have to finish, family and friends will be thoroughly impressed with the new look. Even if you want to add more outdoor living space to entertain, a skilled professional contractor can get this done in record time. 

Things to Keep in Mind for the Kitchen

The kitchen is probably the most used room in any house. Especially during the holidays, family and friends will gather to enjoy good times and good food. 

Some things to consider include:

Space – open space that is large enough to accommodate family members and guests, as well as enough room to cook and prepare meals

Lighting – a bright and well-lit kitchen will help to set an inviting atmosphere

Countertops and cabinetry – as two of the most important items in the kitchen, you want both to be a perfect match. Color schemes, size, shape and design are important to being appealing to the eye

Backsplash – carefully select a pattern and material that is the perfect match to the style of your kitchen. Professional design help makes this much easier

Don't Hesitate to Ask for Professional Help If you feel overwhelmed by the length of your to-do list, and the amount of time to complete everything, find a contractor that you can trust. Your home is an investment. The enjoyment of the holidays for your family and friends is also an investment. Whether you need additional space or renovations to existing space, an experienced contractor that you trust can handle it. Get an estimate, let them begin the work and you can continue with other preparations for a festive time.

Call an Emergency Plumber When a Water Pipe Breaks

from Google images
Every homeowner must have a plumbing repair occasionally, and it is a good idea to contact a professional plumber rather than attempting to fix a broken water pipe or clogged toilet on your own. The plumbers Baltimore residents need work for local companies that only hire licensed tradesmen. One of the most common plumbing problems in a home is a ruptured water pipe that occurs as the temperature begins to drop in the autumn. This is an emergency repair because the water that leaks from the pipe can damage walls, floors and ceilings. 


Have Difficult Clogs Removed from a Home’s Toilets or Sinks

An additional plumbing problem that requires an emergency service call is when a toilet or sink has a difficult clog. When a homeowner is not able to shift the debris from the drain, a plumber can pour enzymatic cleansers into a drain to dissolve tough debris such as frozen toilet tissue or hair before using a plumber’s snake to move the remaining debris. This process requires only a few minutes, but with a professional plumber, the clog is removed without damaging a sink or toilet. 

A Plumber Can Clean Drains and Grease Traps

If a homeowner notices that the bathtubs or sinks in a home’s kitchen or the bathrooms are emptying slowly, then it is essential to have the drains cleaned. The drains underneath sinks and bathtubs can fill with debris such as food particles and hair that will collect on the interior surfaces of the pipes. Eventually, a dense clog will form that water will not flow through, leading to bathroom and kitchen fixtures that are filled with dirty water. A plumber can use drain-cleaning devices such as rooter brushes to push away the debris. 

Plumbers Are Able to Repair Sewer Lines

When a sewer line on a property is defective, a homeowner will notice standing water or a foul odor from waste. A plumber can drop a camera into a sewer line to determine where the clog is along with any damage such as holes and cracks. To remove the clog, a plumber will blast strong streams of water into the sewer line for several minutes to dislodge tree roots, garbage and hair. After the clog washes away, the plumbing team can insert flexible pipes into the lines to repair the sewer system.

My Son's Favorite Past time

My son belongs to the digital era. He loves to play on cellphone or tablets and even on our laptops. Just imagine how a 3-year old boy gets to memorize my alphanumeric password so he could have an access to my laptop. We are partly to be blamed of his "addiction" to gadgets because he was already exposed to it as early as his first year because that was used to be his pacifier when he was on tantrums before.

We were actually quite alarmed of his exposure to gadgets that is why we limit his usage now. Since he is the type who is very hyper, his father bought him a blocks for him to play on. We are also glad because he really loves playing blocks. In fact, that was what he usually watched on YouTube- Lego creations.
Favorite past time at home 

Favorite activity in school


Right now, he has limited time for movies, gadgets, and more time for physical activities. For Moms out there, be resourceful in providing your kids with something that will keep them busy- not with gadgets but with toys that will enhance their creativity.
