Guilelessness

"Love thinketh no evil."

This is the grace for suspicious people. The possession of it is a great secret of personal influence. You will find, if you think for a moment, that the people who influence you are people who believe in you. In an atmosphere of suspicion men shrivel up; but in an atmosphere of guilelessness they expand and find encouragement. Love imputes no motive, and sees the bright side.

What a challenge to live up to. That summed it up so perfectly I can't add a thing!

Oh!!! I enjoyed looking at your blog! The pictures are great! I especially like how you add scripture and scriptural principles to them!
May God bless you as you continue to let your light shine!

God's bless,

One question... How did you get the "are you a good person" quiz/test on your blog?

Bethany said...

Hey Darleen! Thanks for stopping by my blog (and also to the rest of my faithful readers!) How boring blogging would be without hearing all your insight and input as well!

As to how I got the "good person" test on my blog...if you click the box, the test will come up. At the very bottom of the test are a few more links. The one you want is "Resource Center." On that web page you will find all the instructions for copying the html code into your web page format, plus other wittnessing tools. I hope this answers what you are looking for!

God bless!
