Holly Ridge Happenings

A Mother Just Like You

I wonder what the world would be like if all children had a Mother like you. One who gave so much of herself putting her childs needs before her own. What a nice thought, a world full of happiness wished upon them just like you have given me. 

When I was young everything seemed so perfect. You’d kiss my scraped up knees making things better once again. And when you’d hold me close I’d smile because your arms felt so safe. You use to tell me God blessed you so many years ago when he placed me in your arms.

Every once in a while, a ewe will give birth to a lamb and reject it.

There are many reason she may do this. If the lamb is returned to the ewe, the mother may even kick the poor animal away. Once a ewe rejects one of her lambs, she will never change her mind. The little lambs will hang their hands so low that it looks like something is wrong with its neck. Their spirit is broken. 

These lambs are called “ bummer lambs.” Unless the shepherd intervenes, that lamb will die, rejected and alone.

When Jesus Cried Out “It is Finished”

Righteousness was perfected, 

Divine justice was satisfied, 

Blood was shed, 

Sins were forgiven, 

Reconciliation was achieved, 

Death  was conquered and 

Salvation was secured. 

Without love, we feel nothing. 

Without dreams, we accomplish nothing. 

Without God we are noting. 

The key to loving God is to see Jesus, to hold him before the mind with as much fullness and clarity a possible. It is to adore Him.

They gathered His body so tattered and torn it was finished, the Savior had died.

They carried Him gently to an empty tomb as the people watched and they cried. 

The tomb was dark, dreary, and cold as they laid Him to rest evermore. 

They all quietly left not looking back as the stone was rolled to the door. 

Three days went by then all of a sudden the darkness was expelled by a light. 

He had arose, as He said He would do, the morning was so beautiful and bright.
