Holly Ridge Happenings

Limping To Jerusalem

When I see a very old church, I think about the people who worshipped there. 

They endured two world wars, depression, legalized racism, crop failures, the polio epidemic, financial hardship with no food stamps, Medicare, Welfare, Medicaid, Social Security or unemployment benefits. 

They didn’t have TV or DVD’s or smart phones or fast food or a thousand different ways to entertain themselves on long winter nights.

If your going to put someone down, put them down on your prayer list.

I have a choice each and every day of my life. I choose to feel blessed. I choose to to feel grateful. I choose to be excited. I choose to be thankful. I choose to be happy. I choose to smile and thank God for this beautiful blessing called Life. Accept what is, let go of what was and have faith in what will be. God know’s what He’s doing.

If I can’t be wise, let me be kind. If I can’t give my time, let me show love. If I can’t give money, let me show kindness. If I can’t change the world, let me show love and inspire others. May others see you, God through me. There is no perfect life, no perfect job, no perfect childhood, no perfect marriage and no perfect set of people who will always do what we expect them to do. What we have is a PERFECT GOD who is able to lead us through this imperfect life with unfailing strength, incomparable wisdom and infinite LOVE.

I’m no longer looking for “the signs of the times.” I’m listening for the “sound of the trumpet.”

The problem is Sin, not skin. The answer is Grace, not race. Jesus died for all. Our nation needs Jesus

Six important Guidelines for life. When you are alone, mind your  thoughts. When you are with friends, mind your tongue, When you are angry, mind your temper. When you are with a group, mind your behavior. When you are in trouble, mind your emotions. When God starts blessing you, mind your ego.
