just in the nick of time...

i have been trying to catch a minute or two today to blog...

not easy...

especially when debbie and jessica are SO much fun to go to estate sales with (and NO i did not buy ANYthing... thus still living proverbially. BUT if that $15 blue chair had not already been sold... well, anything might have happened). and debbie and jessica are fun to eat lunch with too. 

and my mother-in-law will be here any moment. she is coming from charleston, so i had sheets and towels and cleaning things that had to be done today.

and did you notice it was the ALMOST last friday of the school year? my schedule has noticed with LOTS to do and LOTS of places to be and LOTS of teacher gifts to prepare, etc...

anyway, in light of a dear dear friend who has had a son who has made some really poor decisions in the last couple of months (and the really sad part is that this really does apply to more than one of my dear dear friends... oh, what is befalling all of the teenage boys in the world today?) i chose this verse because i think it is a good one to teach our kids... and once mine are home for more than 5 minutes and not at choral rehearsals, end of the year parties, or finishing projects and studying for tests... i plan to share this with them.

proverbs 22:28 (the message)
Don't stealthily move back the boundary lines 
   staked out long ago by your ancestors.

(king jim version)
Remove not the ancient landmark,
which thy fathers have set (prepared, made, kept).

i have seen a lot of moving back of the boundary lines lately... 

this verse comes in a section of proverbs that contain 30 precepts of the wise. 

i love how MANY times in proverbs it speaks to following what your mom and dad tell you to do. yeah, my kids need to read proverbs more often.

where have i stealthily moved back boundary lines?

because i do so like to move those lines...

and it was funny because this was the lunch Scripture card that i put in my kids lunch boxes today...

and it was just the next one in the drawer.... what a coincidence... and maybe not a coincidence?
