A successful first college class!

I just finished my first college class after 10 years out of school. Out of 1000 available points I got 1010!

There is something to be said for committing My time and energy fully to something.

I am still finishing my second class, but I think I'm getting an "A" in that class too.

I am looking forward to having a summer at home committing my time to De-cluttering my home and making it a haven for my husband and myself.

Titus 2:3-5 Amplified Bible

I love the Amplified Bible for it's expanded translations of the KJV. It is the first place I go when I want a deeper understanding of the verses I'm looking at. With all the resources on the internet, there is never a reason to miss out on the different translations.

Titus 2:3-5 (Amplified Bible)

Bid the older women similarly to be reverent and devout in their deportment as becomes those engaged in sacred service, not slanderers or slaves to drink. They are to give good counsel and be teachers of what is right and noble,

So that they will wisely train the young women to be sane and sober of mind (temperate, disciplined) and to love their husbands and their children,

To be self-controlled, chaste, homemakers, good-natured (kindhearted),adapting and subordinating themselves to their husbands, that the word of God may not be exposed to reproach (blasphemed or discredited).

What a great expanded understanding to be gained from this translation. I will go in more depth on each verse as time goes on. I am really enjoying this study so far.

God Bless,

Pursuing Titus 2

After being a SAHW and part-time student for several months now I have determined I want to further my understanding of Titus 2 and Proverbs 31. I need to put God's Word in practice in my life. I want look at what is expected from the young women as well as the aged because I am getting closer and closer to that end of the spectrum.

I want this first post to be a simple quotation of Titus 2:3-5 which speaks directly to the women of this day and this time. I will be taking some time to research the specifics of this section of scripture soon.

Titus 2:3-5

The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh
holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good

That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands,
to love their children,

To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient
to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

God Bless you,

Rean Day
