The Big Ten

My brother asked me to participate in his meme of what 10 things would I most like to impart to my children. And well these are my answers.

1.Thou stalt have no other God before me.
that includes TV kids.

2.Thou shalt not make any graven image.
that also includes TV kids.

3. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.
even when all your friends are doing it, and it may seem cool.

4.Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy.
Live ever day like you meant too, your regrets will be fewer.

5.Honour thy Father and thy Mother.
Even if you thinks they are wrong or even uncool. Not that I am ok folks.

6.Thou shalt not kill
This includes my patience, my finances, my furniture and of course the dogs.

7.Thou shalt not commit adultery.
We will go into that one more when your older. lol

8.Thou shalt not steal.
Even from the lolly jar when you think I won't notice.

9.Thou shall not bear false witness.
This includes little white ones like no mum you don't look fat in those pants.

10.Thou shalt not covet.
Be happy with what you have in life.

Those are the main ten and then I still have more like

1. Respect those who earn your respect.
And give the benefit of the doubt to others till they earn it.
2. Have Goals in your life and go forward to obtain them, dont
wait for them to fall into your lap.
If you aim for nothing you'll hit it every time.
"For I know the plans I have for you,says the Lord, plans to prosper you and
not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future". JER 29.11
3. Never be racist, being different does not make you wrong, it just makes you different.
We are all fearfully and wonderfully made.
4. Obtain as much knowledge as possible, read read and then read some more
and keep the bloody TV off.
5.Love your family, never be ashamed of them even if they do not fit your ideals.
6. Treat people how you would like to be treated.'
7. Don't just do your best, give 110%, God loves a cheerful giver. So do I, so go and do the dishes.
8.Guard you heart.
"Above all else guard your heart for it is the wellspring of life". Pro 4. 23
Love is a gift to be used, don't be afraid just be careful who you chose to share it with.
9. See trouble coming
" A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge,but the simple keep going and suffer for it." Pro 23.3
And last of all
10. You are loved more than you will ever realise my babies.
They may not be perfect to others but they are mine.
"A baby is a kiss from heaven blown from the hand of God"

Shona, I have said before and I'll say it again, I love your sense of humour. Thank you for tagging me, this will require a lot of thinking and I am not going to ask my kids their opinion!

Yours was a great ten by the way, and I am sure I won't be able to match it, but I'll try, lol!

Take care and have a good week, darl!

I really enjoyed this peaceful and substantive post. BTW: Phillipians I believe mentions that while we may not be all we can be, we can endeavor to get in the game of life and run the race positively. Of course, that's quite a paraphrase but this was a nice post! lol!
