There are so many ways in which blessings come to us; visits, caring phone calls and emails. People asking for prayer and someone saying they are praying for us are blessings. Getting an unexpected hug in times of social distancing is a definite blessing. Knowing God loves us and is with us always is the ultimate blessing. In these uncertain times, it is so good to know that. Happy Sunday.
With all that’s going on in the world today, I’m sure many of us are wondering where it’s all going to end. I believe this cartoon captures it well. Happy Saturday.
It’s a new day…a chance to do one thing different; a chance to reach out to someone; a chance to pay it forward; a chance to mend a relationship; a chance to make a difference. It’s a chance to forgive; a chance to start over; a chance to share; a chance to change; a chance to encourage someone; a chance to take a chance. It’s a new day.
It is said a picture speaks louder than words.
We all know of the heartbreaking death of George Floyd on May 25th. Whatever his past deeds, this cruel and callous end to his life was not warranted. It has not been an easy road for George and his people and the road ahead will not be easy, but all of us can be a part of justice and world change by keeping the picture of Mr. Floyd’s brutal death alive in our hearts and minds. This atrocity should never again touch a black life, or any life for that matter. Peace be with you.
“You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘You shall not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.’ Matthew 5:21.
In the midst of a pandemic, peace be with you.
In the midst of protests, peace be with you.
Missing the human touch, peace be with you.
If you are still staying home, peace be with you.
Whether the day be sunny or gray, peace be with you.
Today I’m thinking of venturing out to Canadian Tire for a couple of paint brushes. It will be my first retail experience in three months if you don’t count getting my snow tires changed over. Back in the eighties, one of my daughters gave me the following quote in the form of a wall plaque. It will be in my mind the whole time I’m out.
Lord, help me to remember that nothing is going to happen today that You and I can’t handle together.
Look what I found while looking up more hugging images. These pictures suit the title of this post, don’t you think? Happy Wednesday.
As mentioned last Sunday, church is not the building. Today you are invited to attend a different church. It’s just a click away thanks to AndiesIsle.com which is an experience in itself. Most services are an hour or more but this experience is less than five minutes. Happy Sunday.

Last night I watched two hours of Celtic Thunder. This young man, Damien, was fourteen at this filming and is now twenty-seven and still singing. It was very soothing. Happy Saturday.
