guard our mind

random snapshot 29/2016 The mind is a garden where thought flowers grow, the thoughts that we think are seeds that we sow. 我们的心是一座花園, 里面开的是思想的花朵,我们所想的就是为这些花儿所散播的种子。 ***** Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or…
