A Cheery Countenance

God's Word from my Mother's Mouth, or in other words, The Gospel according to Alice

God’s word:

“My God sent His angel and shut the lion’s mouths and they have not harmed me.” Daniel 6:22 (NASB)

From my mother’s mouth: (Spoken to one of my siblings who had confessed to having said something to someone which she knew she should not have said and later regretted.)

“Honey, if God can shut the mouths of the lions in the lions den, then He can shut yours too! You need to ask him for help next time. (I have remembered this comment from my mother many times when I wanted to eat that extra dessert – If God can shut the mouths of the lions; then I guess He can shut mine too!)

God’s word:

“By the sweat of your face you will eat bread, till you return to the ground, because from it you were taken; for you are dust and to dust you shall return.” Genesis 3:18-20 (NASB)

From my mother’s mouth:

“Get in here right now!! I told you to clean your room…but just look at the mess I found under your bed! And you forgot to sweep your floor. The Bible says from dust man came and to dust man will return, and you’ve got a man either a coming or a going one underneath your bed. Now get your broom and start sweeping!!”
