  4. Wise words Traci! Too often we focus on the negatives and fail to appreciate the positives. I can tell you from experience when we only focus on what's wrong we become bitter, resentful and it becomes virtually impossible to be happy with anything! These are great rules to live by!

    God bless you!

  5. Thank you! This is a huge blessing for wives and husbands. A great reminder to us all. Our enemy is so crafty and sneaky, he silently slithers up to us and we don't even realize that we are slipping.

  6. It is so amazing how feeding your mind on lies breeds discontentment, while thinking on truth brings you peace and gratitude for what God has given you. This is such an important message to be sharing, as I've seen too many marriages ruined by a wife who found an old flame online and left her husband to pursue that 'what if.'

  12. Tell ya what... the old saying.." Garbage in...garbage out" rings a bell!
    Was just chatting with my hub about this very thing.. there is that one scripture that says, " Don't talk about what the wicked do in private."

    That little scripture rings so true in my daily choices in what I hear and see with my little eyes.

    I think we need to be careful what we allow in our little brains because we are sponges....and God made us and He knows what our little brains do with information that we can't deal with, you know?

    Great and insightful post!
