I wrote the content on this blog with sincere and holy intentions with the knowledge that I had at the time... We live, learn and errors are exposed and more truths are revealed...

Only GOD is perfect. It's vital that you seek the Lord to expose any errors that you've embraced. Please ask Him to expose any areas of darkness to you and for what is necessary to do to dispossess what's NOT of truth.



Flames of fire dance joyfully as dreams of fervor conjure up images of red hot passion for the gusto of life.

Sizzle, spark, explode -

Fireballs light up the sky. Wow! a thunder flash with a clap -

The flames are vivid with the awesome glow of orange colors blended with yellow highlights that accent the blaze.

This display is the bomb torched with a rocket plan. Such rapture has lit our fire. We are dynamite on this journey.

Come on fire, fall on us. Pour your liquid potency. Ignite our souls that we may be engulfed with magnified intensity.

Blow up our hearts. Dance with us....

Greetings -

This is something that happened more than 35 years ago, but when I think of it, it still makes me smile and marvel. 

I was babysitting one of my nephews, J, when he was about seven years old.  I was not a Christian at that time.  J was at my residence; we were watching television.  I decided that we would have some cookies.  Before I went to get them, I gave J a mini lecture about the wisdom of not indulging in too many cookies.  I mentioned some health factors and several benefits of eating only a few cookies.  I told him that he could have two cookies.  

J listened quietly and patiently during my mini lecture.  When I finished, he looked at me and calmly asked, "How many are you going to have?"  His question stunned me because my intent was to have more than two cookies.  I sheepishly responded, "Two."  J didn't say anything else about the matter.  He didn't have to... - do you think that he knew that I had plans to eat more than two cookies?  I still wonder about that answer. 

I didn't say anything further to J about the matter.  What could I say?  I wasn't inclined to confess to him my intention, which was to have more than two cookies even though I had lectured him about the health factors etc.  My impression of J's question was that his attitude was - "Yeah right, auntie.  How many are you going to have?"  He didn't ask the question disrespectfully.  His  question convicted me because I knew my intent.  I got the cookies for us and we both had two of them.  

Why did I let that kid "chump" me?  It was my residence, my package of cookies, and I was grown - he was not.  Humph! - The nerve of him!  Of course, we know that he hadn't done anything wrong - I had.  J was not privy to my private thoughts that day....   

What did I do after eating two cookies with J?  A few minutes later, while J was in another room, I sneaked into the kitchen and ate some more cookies.  As I stood there, I said to myself something like "Here you are a grown woman and that child's question convicted you -now you stand in your own kitchen sneak eating cookies!"  

Since J has been an adult, I have asked him a couple of times if he remembers my cookie lecture.  He doesn't have memory of it.

Yes, people, I was busted.

  1. Great story - I bet we a=can all relate! Great lesson too.

  2. Yes, busted. However, you could also have explained that based on your different size, him being little and you being bigger, that you could afford to eat a little bit more... What would have been wrong with that? :-)

  3. Oh, how funny! This sounds like life with my 7 year old. Only, I eat the "more than two" cookies and she asks me "why do YOU get to eat more than two cookies and I don't?" And then I say "because I'm grown and an adult and your the child", etc. She doesn't like that very much. Your post has made me think, lol!

  4. The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.
    (Isaiah 11:6 KJV)

    Just as this little child led you! Yes, convicted. Amazing, isn't it. A very good story and I'm glad I came by today to read it. It has a message for us all, and a peek into life.

  5. Ah ha...'be sure your sins will find you out'...we are all guilty of similar, and God always knows, He is the one we can't fool even though we think we can. Much love Crystal

    Thank for for visiting and commenting.

    A lesson indeed!

    Interesting point...I never thought of that for an answer.

    @Mining for Diamonds
    You expressed, "And then I say "because I'm grown and an adult and your the child"..."

    When I was young, I heard those very words or similar so many times. smiles

    @Grammy Blick
    I'm glad that you cited that scripture. It came to mind when I did the subject post but our Lord didn't lead me to cite it. And then I came here and noticed that you cited it! Glory to GOD. Thank you, dear sister in Christ.

    @Crystal Mary
    Yes, our sins always find us out. GOD cannot be fooled, and His Word says that He is not mocked - Galatians 6:7- KJV. He knows hearts, desires and motives.

    Lord, please help us to steadfastly be pure in heart with clean hands - in Your glorious name. Thank You.

  7. Sandra - OK, so I laughed right out loud at this humorous post! But the lesson was well taken to heart.

    Yes, I have been busted before - and though it's not a great experience, I'm glad that God didn't let me get away with "wandering behavior." He pointed out my sin, and I repented. The glory of it is this - He allowed me to come right back into His arms, and He forgave me.

    He's a great God, isn't He?


  8. Kids! Really you just have to love them they sure do know how to keep us accountable. :)

    Thanks for sharing,

    You're funny. Yes, our Lord provides lessons from an assortment of resources. The ones from children are sometimes the most effective ones.

    All these years later, the memory of my nephew's question remains strong with me.

    Yes, Sharon, GOD is a great GOD!

    @Child of God
    Yes, kids are such treasures!

    You are certainly welcome.
