Spumoni Ice Cream

Today is my birthday.  Though gray hairs are glaring at me in the mirror, I don’t care.

I am hoping to bite into some serious chocolate birthday cake and spumoni ice cream (if I can find my favorite flavor in the store.)

First, I wanted to bite into some nuggets of wisdom from the Bible book of Proverbs, chapter 10. They are listed here & paraphrased by me.

These bites are time-tested and calorie-free.

Enjoy.

  1. Don’t be lazy.  It leads to poverty. (Proverbs 10:4) By the way, August 10th is also National Lazy Day.  Ironic.
  2. When you indulge in upright, wise, holy living, your memory will be a blessing to those who knew you. (Proverbs 10:7)
  3. A babbling fool will come to ruin– (perhaps by her own mouth?) Don’t babble. Think about what you say before you say it. (Proverbs 10:8)
  4. Love covers all offenses, irritations, and little annoyances. (Proverbs 10:12)
  5. Foolish talking will bring ruin dangerously close. (Proverbs 10:14)
  6. When you let a lot of words exit your mouth, you will err – without a doubt. (Proverbs 10:19a)
  7. Whoever restrains her lips is prudent (wise, sensible, well-advised.) (Proverbs 10:19b)
  8. The blessing of God makes a person truly rich.  And, that blessing doesn’t come with bad side effects. (Proverbs 10:22)
  9. To a wise person, finding truth and applying it is FUN. (Proverbs 10:23)
  10. Staying on God’s path is protection. (Proverbs 10:29)
