My Three Good Things...last day!

The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.  Nahum 1:7

Happy T G I F!

Can you believe it...the weekend is here again!!  Wow!

I wonder is it too late to make some changes in what we try to accomplish for this year (2014).  It's time to get off the sidelines and get some real 'playing' time...time to get off the bench!  What are we waiting for?  A personal invitation?&#...

O give thanks unto the Lord; call upon his name; make known his deeds among the people.  Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him; talk ye of all his wondrous works.  Glory ye in his holy name; let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord.  Seek the Lord, and his strength; seek his face evermore.  Remember his marvellous works that he hath done; his wonders, and the judgements of his mouth;  Psalm 105: 1-5

Good morning and welcome to Wednesday!&#...

Happy Tuesday!

Yes...today is Tuesday, even though to some of us, it may feel like a Monday.  Alright, how was your weekend?  Mine was pretty good.  I got to spend a little bit of time with my Grand-Son...which is always great!  Went window shopping in the baby section to pr...

God Changes Not...

For I am the Lord, I change not;  Malachi 3:6

Happy Thursday!

Change is a constant.  Things are always changing...whether we want them to or not.  Our bodies change...for better or worse.  Our family dynamics change...for better or worse.  Our jobs change...for better or worse.  Change isn't always comfortable.  However, sometimes it is very necessary.  There are times when we must change if we are going to grow.

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace.  In the world ye shall have tribulations; but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.  John 16:33

Happy Wednesday!

I was totally out of commission on Tuesday, from the early morning hours to later that afternoon.  But thanks be to God...all went well.  So, it's all good!

How is your week going so far?...

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:5

Happy Monday!

Can you believe another weekend has come and gone?  I surely can't.  But considering how my weekend went, maybe it's no surprise.  Friday evening, I had to deliver some product.  Saturday morning I went to get my hair done (one o...

Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.  And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.  Matthew 18:4 - 5

Happy TGIF!  Thank God indeed!

You must pardon me, but I am on an emotional High!  I just finished sitting with my little Grand-Baby for about 30 minutes...more or less.  He is the cutest little man!  But then of course I am biased. ...

For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.  Psalm 5:12

Welcome to Wednesday!  It's the middle of the week and we know we can make it to the weekend from here! 

Some days are rougher than others to get through.  But through it all, God is there to bear our pains..to be a shoulder to lean on...a strong tower to run to...a light in a dark situation.  He loves us through it all.

Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?  Then I said, Here am I; send me.  Isaiah 6:8

Welcome Thursday!

We are appointed to go and shed the light on a world that needs us desparately!  You asked, what can you do?  One person tell one person...and that person tell one person.  Before we know it, our little light will be one blazing inferno.  All God needs is a little spark and He can take ...

Not that I speak in respect of want; for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.  Philippians 4:11

Happy Wednesday!

I can hardly read through Philippians without pausing at this verse.  It begs the question...'Are you content with where you are...what you look like...what you have?  Are you sometimes wishing you were anywhere but where you are...wishing you looked different than what you currently do...have a little bit mo...

Happy May Day!

Alright we have a challenge for the month of May.  Do you think you can think of three things that are good in your life?  There are 22 week days multiplied by 3 good things equals 66 good things for which to praise the Lord.  Can you do it?   For me, the first few days will be the easiest.  But then halfway through the ...
