Honor

So a lot has been happening this past few weeks.  It is stuff that isn't all good and I can't go into it here for privacy reasons.  In the midst of it all though I am remaining peaceful.  I can't tell you how good of a feeling that is, to just be peaceful.  I feel like I can breathe, that I'm not being suffocated.  I know it is hard to understand if you don't know what is going on but before Soul Restoration something like this would have just sent me into a tail spin.  I would have dwelled on it and it would have broken me.  However, I am whole and it feels wonderful!

My daughter has a school project that is coming up. She has a question she needs to answer in a form that would be visible to the public. She will be doing some mixed media, making them into She Art girls.  Her question is what does it means to live with honor?  We would be interested to hear your answers in forms of favorite quotes, scriptures and whatever else you would like.  Who knows, my daughter may just decide to give one of you a special present after her project is finished at the end of May.

hon·or [on-er] –noun

I have been thinking about you. I have such a cool story regarding HONOR. We went to the Restoring Honor Rally on 8.28 in Washington DC last summer. AMAZING! Anyway, that was in August...in November we are watching Glenn Beck and he does this piece on the Rally and just as he says the word HONOR there is our daughter Emma!! As big as life on the Television. Amazing!!!

I am so grateful for this SR class. It has helped me tremendously and has introduced me to other kind souls.

Have a beautiful day and I am so happy you are doing okay. Hang in there!! Are you doing the class in June?

Honor is such a big idea, but just a few small tasks... be true to yourself and your path, be honest with the people you meet, be just in your thoughts and actions.
Hope things are getting better for you.

Living with honor means doing the right thing even when no one is watching. (not my original thought, but I love it)

Good luck on the project!
And good job breathing!

If you live the truth - you shall always have honor, integrity, and trust. (~me)

Truth is HUGE for me. I don't understand why people lie. If you lack truth, you lack honor.

Best of luck with your project!!!

Juel, the word "honor" first bring to mind the honoring of the Lord by doing good through our works and words. By the way, I "honored" you with the Stylish Blog award on my website! XOXO
