~*~Be GENTLE with my friends..!...


At the school carnival, my won four free goldfish (lucky us!), so out I went Saturday morning to find an aquarium. The first few I priced ranged from $40 to $70. Then I spotted it... right in the aisle... a discarded 10-gallon display tank, complete with gravel and filter... for a mere five bucks. Sold! Of course, it was nasty dirty, but the savings made the two hours of clean up a breeze. Those four new fish looked great in their new home, at least for the first day. But by Sunday one had died. Too bad, but three remained. Monday morning revealed a second casualty, and by Monday night a third goldfish had gone belly up. We called in an expert, a member of our church who has a 30-gallon tank. It didn't take him long to discover the problem... I had washed the tank with soap, an absolute no no. My uninformed efforts had destroyed the very lives I was trying to protect.

Sometimes in our zeal to clean up our own lives or the lives of others, we unfortunately use "killer soaps"... condemnation, criticism, nagging, fits of temper. We think we're doing right, but our harsh, self righteous treatment is more than they can bear.



Let the shine!!!

Thanks for the reminder Michael. I've been the victim of these killer soaps and because I know how it feels to be washed with these I do my very best to treat people how I want to be treated, and talk to them with love, respect and honesty - no matter how difficult or trying it may be.

Keep smiling...it's a good one

This is why I don't have fish. I can't stand that they die too easily! Love them, but just don't have them anymore as our pets!

It just breaks my heart and I could never "flush" them. So if their Dad wants them, fine. He came over with a fish tank one day the size of one wall. It was huge!! So excited, look what he got for free!!! I said, "Oh yea, very nice, that's wonderful!! But, not in my house!" I don't know what he did with it.

Very good. What I tell my girls is. If its negative, if it could hurt the person your talking about, if they hear it, if it makes someone think badly of someone. Keep it to yourself. Its the devil trying to start trouble.If he can get you to be mean, ugly, angry, negitive he can keep you from Gods love for that time that your acting that way.If it ant good, it ant God....Red neck way of putting it. Yep lots of red necks in th parts....lol Have a great day Michael.GBU ese

Angel looking 4 her wings.. I will loosen myself from what has held me in the past, and from all the things that claw at my soul and threaten to pull it away from Gods purpose.

In Him, I need never worry.


God is God‒be humbled.
God is good‒be encouraged.
God is great‒be thankful
