13 If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing.
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
Being cool is being your own self, not doing something that someone else is telling you to do.
food for thought
“To all who mourn in Israel,
he will give a crown of beauty for ashes,
a joyous blessing instead of mourning,
festive praise instead of despair.
In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks
that the Lord has planted for his own glory.”
– Isaiah 61:3
Personal experience Goldenyaa ; As young christian woman i was brought up to honor God commandments, and i knew what was wrong from right,
but i choose often to live a life that was not right in God ways. I chose to have boyfriends with intentions that would only hurt, abuse and depress me.Thinks only got worst and worse ,in my finance, in my kids life , eventual caving in my faith in Jesus.
I continued searching for love in men for very wrong reasons, and also using marriage as weapon, everything back fired.
Those where my ashes for a very long time, just when i let loose of the control i had over my love life and gave it to God, he prepared the right spouse for me.
God took those ashes spirituality from me and thought me how to hold, how to maintain and love BEAUTY.. Am talking about the future!!!!
Remember the samaritian woman: John 4 in the bible
16 He told her, “Go, call your husband and come back.”
17 “I have no husband,” she replied.
Jesus said to her, “You are right when you say you have no husband. 18 The fact is, you have had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband. What you have just said is quite true.”
19 “Sir,” the woman said, “I can see that you are a prophet. 20 Our ancestors worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem.”
21 “Woman,” Jesus replied, “believe me, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. 22 You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. 23 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. 24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”
25 The woman said, “I know that Messiah” (called Christ) “is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us.”
26 Then Jesus declared, “I, the one speaking to you—I am he.”
Jesus made an example here even those that are no more valuable , and has package`s of disgrace are not forgotten,
this woman ashes where here marriage s , am sure she even was a cast out in her community . ( Reader can you relate to this) but God told her here, there was still hope for her..and not only she was saved but also her village: her Beauty in the future was made
Brother or Sister:
On the outside, do you seem to have it altogether, but on the inside you’re hurting? Maybe your heart has been broken or someone has wounded you deeply. If so, God wants to pick up all of the broken pieces and make you whole again. He wants to give you beauty for ashes.
God’s plan is sending Jesus to heal the brokenhearted (See Isaiah 61). You are just the person Jesus came for
There are absolutely no grounds in either the Old Testament or the New Testament to prohibit interracial marriages.
Thankfully, God does not judge humans by mere external appearances. Though humans have a tendency to judge people by how they look, including their skin color, God does not judge us by color; He judges the heart. The beauty of God’s judgment is that he is “no respecter of persons” (Acts 10:34), and thus we are to judge the same way (1 Timothy 5:21; James 3:17).
The beauty of the ministry of Christ is that in him there are no barriers between Jew and Gentile, slave and freeman, male and female (Galatians 3:28); there is neither circumcised or uncircumcised, Barbarian or Scythian in Christ (Colossians 3:11). And those who become followers of Jesus are part of Abraham’s seed and heirs of His (Galatians 3:29).
Oh, and if you recall, in a heavenly vision, the apostle John was able to see clearly the plan of God fulfilled. Here, before the throne of God and the Lamb, in heaven, a great multitude was standing arrayed: they were from every nation, tribe, people and language (Revelation 7:9ff.). This inspiring scene accords perfectly with our Lord’s greatest commission, “go and make disciples of the nations” (Matthew 28:18f.).
So, we have seen that there is no prohibition against interracialmarriages in the Bible. We have also seen that God’s plan of salvationincludes drawing his people from every nation, tribe, people and language.
May we have this same desire, eschewing all forms of racism and ungodly prejudice.

Fall Fashion: the DOs and DON’Ts of Transitioning Your Wardrobe From Summer to Fall
With the holiday season quickly approaching,
I think it’s safe to say we’re all going to have numerous excuses to dress up filling our calendars in the next few months.
Not to mention, we’ll have a whole host of reasons to give a sweet gift or a few.
Key wardrobe items you need to layer this fall/winter!
DO become best friends with this accessory.
Between seasons, a scarf will update any outfit. We dare you to try it out this fall.
DON’T bring hiking gear off the mountain.
With the zillion adorable fall jackets you could pick, why choose your hiking fleece? “Camper-chic” just isn’t a term in our fashion lexicon.
DO mix it up on the bottom.
Try tailored leggings with your fall separates as a surprising (and surprisingly fun!) alternative to shorts and trousers.
DON’T bust out the bright whites.
Socks in sandals may look fashion-forward on fall runways, but bright white tennis socks aren’t part of the trend. Fashion geniuses agree this version is a serious DON’T.
DON’T be a walking peep show.
Avoid overexposure by being vigilant about fall’s semi-sheer fabrics: What’s opaque in your bedroom may not be kosher once you step out into daylight.
DO get extra mileage out of your fave sundress.
Pairing a dark layer like this black blazer over a pretty summer staple will add another few months to that flowy dress you can’t bear to put away at the end of the season
DON’T show the world your shapewear or undies.
Tights are the number one way to fall-ify your flirty summer dresses, but watch those hemlines so your control-top tights don’t sneak out into visible territory!
DO be ready at a moment’s notice.
Snag a tip from the Boy Scouts: Be Prepared! Keep a pair of rain boots at your desk for the crazy ups, downs and all-arounds of transition weather.
DO go tights-free as long as possible.
If summer sticks around, go ahead and bare your gorgeous legs. You can give a nod to fall by opting for dark shoes and heavier fabrics on bottom instead of stockings.
- Men this fall be more bold in colour`, a nice polo pullover always compliments you skin tone!!
