Learn to Walk

Ever tried to walk forward while looking the other way? Doesn’t really work, does it? We bump into things, trip and fall etc. That’s what it’s like in life when we are trying to move forward, all the while looking at our past, wishing it was “the way things were” or fearing “something might hurt us like it did back then” — it doesn’t work! Let’s look AHEAD to bigger and better things! ~Thoughts from the Negev :)

Weighty Matters

Something I’ve struggled with for years…well ok, I’ll just tell you. My weight. There. I said it, lol. Ugh. But today I understood that griping about it, or even being open and making my issues known to the universe, just really does not help me. The proverbs say that the power of life and death are in the tongue. Let’s stop all the complaining and the negativity today. Speak LIFE. ~Thoughts from the Negev :)

Before you Criticize

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticize them, you’re a mile way….. and you have their shoes. -Author Unknown ~Thoughts from the Negev :)

Shalom from the Negev Desert in Israel

Welcome to my website/blog page. You should know that unlike my amazing husband, I’m probably the least computer savvy person there is and I’m still trying to figure all this stuff out. That having been said, I will try an post a frequent clever quote or short encouraging word — maybe a thing or two to make you smile — I think I will call these “Thoughts from the Negev”. I really enjoy people and would love to get to know you! Feel free to comment and introduce me to your friends!
Many blessings, Baht Rivka ~Thoughts from the Negev :)
