Life "Rules"

Hanging on our refrigerator:

  • If someone trusts you - earn it.

  • If someone speaks to you - answer.

  • If you want to be respected - be respectful.

  • If you make a mistake - admit it.

  • If you are hired to work - don't shirk.

  • If you make a promise - keep it. (Don't readily make promises you may not be able to keep.)

  • If you borrow it - return it.

  • If you open it - close it. (Leave things as you find them unless otherwise instructed.)

  • If you break it - fix it.

  • If you lose it - find it or replace it.

  • Keep clean - if you do not respect yourself no one else will.

Hi. Over here from Internet Cafe. Congratulations on your nomination. I celebrate my blog anniversary this week and cannot even begin to chronicle all the ways that God has blessed my life via this communal canvas.

God bless you as you continue to write your story here. May your pen always belong to Him alone.

PS: Love Lisa Leonard. I have 3 of her designs. She does some incredible stuff.
