As an added bonus during this delightful month of December, Steven and I have decided to read the scriptures together. The book of Proverbs (Proverbs Chapter 1). I gotta be honest, it’s been a while since my scriptures have been opened. In fact, I had to get them out of a box in storage.

As we read, we share verses with one another. This creates conversations, stories about our pasts, and it creates a wonderful sense of wholeness that we share together in our beautiful marriage.

Proverbs 3:13 really stood out to me. I truly do feel more happiness in my daily life. I am more balanced, connected, and aware.

I am going to open my mind and heart to gaining wisdom & knowledge. Reading the scriptures will help Steven and I grow together, as well as to grow individually too.

  1. These are a couple of our favorite:
    1 Cor:4 ; And now these remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
    2 COR 4:18 ; So we fix our eyes not on what is seen but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary but what is unseen is eternal.

  2. After I read that you were reading Proverbs together we decided to do it too! We are reading one a day and it’s been going really well. Thanks for this great idea of reading the Bible together and sharing God’s word 🙂

  3. Hi there, I came back to read some posts I hadn’t read yet. You must be busy. I was hoping to maybe find a new one. It’s amazing how many similar writings are found in both the Bible and the Buddhist “scriptures” called the Gosho. The writings of Daisaku Ikeda are where I get my daily guidance. Let me share one with you. “Religious strife must be avoided at all cost; people may hold different beliefs, but the bottom line is that we are all human beings. We all seek happiness and desire peace. Religion should bring people together . It should unite the potential for good in people’s hearts toward benefiting society and humanity and creating a better future.” daily guidance for Feb 18.
