Tears and Oil

Luke 7:36-50 The Pharisee invited Jesus over for dinner. A sinful woman from town heard He was going to be there, so she came with an alabaster jar of perfume oil. As Jesus spoke to the Pharisee, the woman’s tears wet Jesus feet.

Unwholesome Talk

Ephesians 4:29 “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” NIV Words are powerful.

Stay FOCUSED!!

Another homeschool day, all my lil’ Hensley’s are gathered around the school table working on their assignments. I’m at the kitchen table, tapping away on my keyboard getting some writing in before our instructional period.
