You are holding a cup of coffee when someone comes along and bumps into you, making you spill your coffee everywhere. Why did you spill the coffee? You spilled the coffee because there was coffee in your cup. Had there been tea in the cup, you would have spilled tea. The point is whatever is inside the cup, is what will spill out. Therefore, when life come along and shakes you (which will happen), whatever is inside you will come out. It’s easy to take it, until you get rattled. So, we have to ask ourselves, what’s in my cup? When life gets tough, what spills out?
Life’s Bittersweet Disappointments are God’s Sweetest Appointments
Out of Life’s misery born of man’s sin a richer, fuller life begins. For when we are helpless with no place to go our hearts are heavy and our spirits are low. If we place our poor, broken live in God’s hands and surrender ccomplety to His will and demands the “darkness lifts” and the “sun shines through”. And by His touch, we are “born anew”
When Cardinals appear,
loved ones are near.
Those we love don’t go away,
they walk beside us every day.
Unseen, unheard, but always near.
So loved, so missed, so very near!
Churches have changed
Society has changed
People have changed
But God’s word remains the same!
Thanks to those of you who called to tell me how much you enjoy my news, I only wish I had more. Maybe soon.
I Shall Prevail
The snow is falling softly as it lands up on the ground
The night is very quiet and I cannot hear a sound
I stand and look at all the flakes so big and fluffy now
The silence is so eerie as my mind keeps thinking how?
I love to watch the snowflakes fall, it is still a mystery
The way they float down to the earth and cover all I see.
One little snowflake at a time as they accumulate
Amazes me when joined together what they all create.
I watch the snowflakes piling up when landing on the lawn
