Sharing


The best part of caring is sharing. Here is one of my great-granddaughters sharing a cookie with me on a recent visit. What makes this picture so special is that I had done the same thing with her mother with a french fry thirty-six years ago. Do your share of sharing today. Happy Saturday.

Saying Thank You


There is always so much to be thankful for but do we always remember to give thanks? Today I am thankful for spending quality time with family for the past few days, seeing some of my precious great-grandchildren, good food, companionship, conversation, seeing selflessness in action and lots of hugs. I am renewed, restored and looking forward to worship and fellowship as I now head out to Sunday services and more opportunity for saying thank you. Happy Sunday.

To Your Self Be True


This is a repeat of a 2015 post because there are some younger people who need to hear it today (maybe some older also).

Act in the way that is true to your intelligence and beliefs.

Remember that no one can rob you of your power unless you allow them to do so.

Stand tall and face indignity with dignity, and indecency with decency.

Look truth in the face and use it to overcome deceit.

Remember the respect you have for yourself and those you love, and let no one rob you of that respect.

Always use your inner strength to walk away from a bad situation, and where possible take someone with you who needs to lean on your strength until they discover their own.

Remember that you are loved dearly by those who matter. Love yourself just as dearly, always.

 

 

Untypical But Valid


Today I am going to share with you a prayer request that went through our prayer chain yesterday in the hopes that any praying people will also offer prayer for a human in need. We usually pray for health problems and the like so this request is untypical but valid.

I know of a young man who is in Spiritual crisis at the moment. He needs to know and feel God’s love for him in a profound way. Please pray that as stated in Psalm 23 the Lord will restore his soul and lead him in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Pray that as he walks in the valley of the shadow of death he will fear no evil because God is with him.
Thank you for your heartfelt prayers. Happy Saturday.

 

 

Pure Love


My seven-year-old great-grandson loves his twenty-one-month-old little sister more than words can say. This picture says it all. Remember that saying, “actions speak louder than words”? This is it in a nutshell. My prayer is that we and the world would know such pure love.

 

Love Always


Today is known as Maundy Thursday…the Thursday before Easter, observed in the Christian Church as a commemoration of the Last Supper, the last meal Jesus shared with his disciples before his death.

Maundy also means “commandment”, and at that last meal, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” John 13:34

And that is what Jesus was/is all about…Love…not only in this Holy week but always.
