Shopping for a new born

June 13, 2010, 0 Comments

 

These days, we don’t even have to leave our seats to go shopping. Buyers beware though, online shopping can be addictive! Will leave you with 2 great wisdom from the one who created our babies!

- Do not wear yourself out to get rich (or amass material goods); have the wisdom to show restraint. (Proverbs 23:4)
- But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. (Matt 6:33)
