Edwards Resolutions 11-20

March 1, 2008

THE RESOLUTIONS OF JONATHAN EDWARDS
11. Resolved, when I think of any theorem in divinity to be solved, immediately to do what I can towards solving it, if circumstances don’t hinder.

12. Resolved, if I take delight in it as a gratification of pride, or vanity, or on any such account, immediately to throw it by.

13. Resolved, to be endeavoring to find out fit objects of charity and liberality.

14. Resolved, never to do anything out of revenge.

15. Resolved, never to suffer the least motions of anger to irrational beings.

16. Resolved, never to speak evil of anyone, so that it shall tend to his dishonor, more or less, upon no account except for some real good.

17. Resolved, that I will live so as I shall wish I had done when I come to die.

18. Resolved, to live so at all times, as I think is best in my devout frames, and when I have clearest notions of things of the gospel, and another world.

19. Resolved, never to do anything, which I should be afraid to do, if I expected it would not be above an hour, before I should hear the last trump.

20. Resolved, to maintain the strictest temperance in eating and drinking.

Finding Peace with God (Great Testimony)

March 1, 2008

On Mustard Seed Sisters, I posted about New Years plans that was mentioned on the Girl Talk Blog. One of the categories was about making moves in your physical health.  One of the things Eric and I have gradulaly been trying to do is to make some lifestyle changes in the way we eat. In that we are trying, when we can to use  whole grain and organic food.

Last year at a photography workshop called Foundations, I had the photo assignment of photographing a organic goat farm. It was an amazing experience and I learned a ton! I went back and visited this past week and they gave me a website where they buy much of there organic food.

 I happened to click on this link. It is an amazing testimony of God’s work in the life of one of His children. I thought of you all when I read it.

Peace with God

I would love to hear your thoughts!
