Songdove Books - Shadow Cat

Update on Cashcrate

Songdove Books - First CashCrate Cheque

It was back in July of 2015 when I shared a comparison article between CashCrate and Swagbucks.  At the time, I wasn’t visiting every single day, but I saw potential with CashCrate that I hadn’t seen with Swagbucks.  Here we are now in February of 2016, and I am now …

Songdove Books - Rowhouses

Isaiah 5:8  Woe unto them that join house to house, that lay field to field, till there be no place, that they may be placed alone in the midst of the earth! This verse came back to mind as I was reading the news on ctv.ca.  Two headlines grabbed me …

The proactive bird gets the worm!

The Poor Man's Budget

Not the bird that runs around imitating quail caught in perpetual indecision.  Not the bird running around imitating a dead chicken’s nerves in the barnyard.  No, we’re talking about the bird who imitates the Robin, ear to the ground, following the sound of dinner as it invariably pops near the …

What God Did With Life Lessons. . . Amazing!

Songdove Books - lemonaide

There is a saying that when life hands you a lemon, make lemonade.  There is a more cynical and destructive version that says if life hands you a lemon, toss it back as hard as you can!  As I was sitting at my dining room table eating breakfast this morning, …

Ruth 3:18  Then said she, Sit still, my daughter, until thou know how the matter will fall: for the man will not be in rest, until he have finished the thing this day. I had been in prayer this morning, bringing needs before the Lord and thanking Him, showing appreciation …

From Destructive Sheeple Behaviour in Judges to the Determination of Ruth

Songdove Books - Ruth and Naomi

My notes for the book of Judges were sparse to say the least.  If there is a book showing the incredible yo-yo effect of followers rather than those who make solid choices, this book was it!  The book of Judges also shows the dangers of not following God’s commands fully, …

Judges 11: The Other Side of Jephthah’s Story

Songdove Books - Jephthah's Daughter

My blogging has been quiet through the Book of Judges so far.  Israel was doing what it did best at that time, serving God and then whoring after other gods.  God was keeping His promises, the positive ones as well as the negative ones, and ensuring that in His way …
