While getting my hair cut yesterday, a stylist asked a gentleman across the way what kind of hair cut he would like. He answered, “I’m easy; I’m sixty-six and there comes a time in life when you get to take a vacation from always caring what you look like.”
Is that true? Happy Saturday.
I have written a few blogs about pleasant surprises and how I pray for one to come my way each day.
Yesterday’s was a whopper!
While preparing the dressing for a salad last night (oil, apple cider vinegar and honey) I was searching the Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar bottle for an expiry date. There was none, but at the bottom of one of the labels was this gem; 3 John 2. I immediately looked it up… Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.
What makes this especially meaningful for me is that today I begin the first of two tests to determine the cause of a health problem.
God bless Patricia Bragg and Paul Bragg.
And I wish you, dear reader, a pleasant surprise today.
Here is today’s reading from one of my devotionals:
Lord, bless all those today who need healing of any kind. Whether it be physical, emotional, or mental, bless them with your merciful grace and eternal love. Let each one know that they are special in your eyes and that, in the realm of spirit, there is only perfection, wholeness, and joy. Amen
Well known and long time Canadian politician, John Crosbie has died at the age of 88.
He was known for a sharp tongue and quick wit.
It is said he was an avid reader and when once asked what book he was currently reading, his reply was, “The Bible; I want to be prepared for my final exam.”
Not bad advice, I’d say. Happy Saturday.
There are people, believers and unbelievers, who have a difficult time understanding and taking to heart the fact that God has a wonderful plan for our lives. (Jeremiah 29:11)
Things crop up in our lives that put restraints on the plans we have made, and that is the time to wonder if maybe God has other plans at this particular time. I choose to believe this is the case and believe that His plans are far superior to mine, whether they seem for my own good or not.
Mark tells a story of Jesus healing a boy with an “evil spirit” after the boy’s father asks Him to “help my unbelief”.
Shall we also say, “I do believe; help be overcome my unbelief!” (Mark 9:24
To me, this is one of the most reassuring hymns ever written. It gives me hope and the promise of my destiny which relieves any fears I might entertain. Happy Sunday.
I found this on Pinterest this morning and it seems to be a fitting message for all who are either in hospital, going into hospital, suffering surgery of some kind, or just plain not feeling well. Happy Saturday.
