Good Fruit.....

A personal note: It has been said that some of us who have made a commitment to pray for hearts to soften and that hate would stop against Raye and her family are trying to 'change' the beliefs of others. Anyone that knows this family knows where we come from and what our morals, ethics and beliefs are. We are a very accepting family and respect others opinions and beliefs. This is a blog from OUR family, so the opinions of OUR religious beliefs are only shared and not forced upon anyone. The public needs to know that we are not 'monsters' and have a Godly heart. Prayer has been the center of this family for generations. As for those that speak out against our freedom to share our beliefs, I DO pray for you.

Matthew 12:33-35 (New Living Translation)

33 “A tree is identified by its fruit. If a tree is good, its fruit will be good. If a tree is bad, its fruit will be bad. 34 You brood of snakes! How could evil men like you speak what is good and right? For whatever is in your heart determines what you say. 35 A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart.

Father, I pray for those that speak evil things against others. Surely they know what is good and evil? Help them to discern right and wrong and the words they speak be only of good things for you to hear. Grant peace and contentment in their hearts. Help us all to live a life of integrity and a life that follows your example. May each of us touch someone everyday in a positive, loving manner with a forgiving spirit. I ask you to give us all strength to endure the pain and sorrow that burdens us every moment of the day. Please help us to heal.~~
