What do ya no???
And do you no what you need to no?
My poor kids! Their mother has a very, very, very, weird way of thinking. Therefore, a very weird way of saying what I mean in hopes to get my point across. In HOPES that they'll remember it! In hopes that they'll do what I said, and don't do what I've told them not to.
Often when my sixteen year old son leaves to go somewhere I'll tell him to remember to take his "No." And to use his "No" when he needs to! I'll remind him to "No" what he needs to "No!"
I've often threatened to tattoo the palms of his hands. One with a "N". The other with an "O!"
For we never know what all that we'll need to "No" when we leave. We're never aware of all of the offers that will be presented to us. We never know the temptations we'll meet. We need to be equipped with our "No"s when we go!
Too many times we don't No what we need to No when we should No better. All of us need to "No" better about some things. What do you No? Are you a good No-er? Do you No what you need to No? Or do you not No what you need to No and your lack of No-ing comes back to bite cha?
Who No-s what they ought to No anymore? And why don't we always No what we know to No?
How do we know what to No if we don't keep our noses in God's Word so we'll know what to No and yes God more?
We're all No-ing something or someone. Who is it (or what is it) that you're No-ing? And are you No-ing the right one (or right thing)?
I'm quick to remind my son, too, that if he doesn't "No" like he's been taught to "No," then I'll be "No-ing" all kinds of things to him when he gets home. :)
"When you need to No something, then by all means: "NO!" it, dear child! And then be glad that you did!"
Believe it or not, he's 'No-ing' better than he used to "No".
Bless my babe's heart! But we sure do have fun!
I guess one of the things that I say to God more than any other thing, I say it to Him all the time is, "Lord, I want to know You!" Because this I know: the more I know Him the less I'll "No" Him.
Ah, LORD! I want to KNOW You so I won't NO You anymore!
