Hi Linda.......I've been watching for you.  Just had a feeling that you would make it today, especially since the 1st falls on the Lord's Day.  Glad your weather has improved.  Now if we could just do something to improve your computer access, we would be flying high.  Hopefully June will be better for all of us.  Looking forward to seeing you again soon.

Good afternoon everyone. Sorry I haven't been around much this month. Lately it seems whenever I get a chance to go to the library, I end up on a computer that either takes forever to load or freezes up at some point. Sometimes moving to another computer helps, but no always.
Finally getting some nice weather. Alot of rain the past few weeks as well.
Michael-glad you're able to get some plowing and planting done. Hopefully the Lord will bless you with a bumper crop like He did last year. It's good that Luc is helping you in your gardening. Bet you'll be glad when the final adoption goes through on Luc. Will be praying the adoption process continues to go well and for healing of your skin cancers.
Jeanette-looks like your area has received quite a bit of rainfall this Spring as well. I'm with you in that it would be nice to have a dry spell for awhile. Maybe send the rain over to areas of the country that are going through a drought. Better yet, send the rain over to help put out those raging wildfires in the west/southwest area.
Not much going on right now,so will widh all a blessed day.

We were awakened at 7am by a loud thunderstorm that only lasted 10 minutes and then just disappeared.  Since then we are having sun and cloud alternating every few minutes with patches of blue spotted here and there.  Hard to tell what the rest of the day will be.

.

Holly........glad you are getting a double dose of your music festival and pray that your weather is ideal for the event. Have a blessed day.

.

Michael.......enough is enough, already.  I know what you mean about needing to dry out for a while.  It's the same down here.  The ground is so saturated and I'm afraid for a storm with any amount of wind to come through.  The ground is too loose to hold the tree roots down and there will be a lot of them uprooted unless we dry out soon.  It was too wet for our yard man last week but he finally got the job done Thursday.  It was sure needing it in a bad way.

.

Carol........That is one of the best graphics I have seen in a long time.  Thank you so much for sharing it with all of us.  I'm going to snag that one and make it smaller for use in the future on the billboard.  Such an excellent message.  So nice to have you back with us, you were so missed.

.

Today I will be in and out of group working on the billboard and threads for next month.  

.

May the Lord coninue to provide for our needs and keep us all safe from harm.

Unpredicted and unexpected sunshine peeking through the clouds.  Our local weather announcer had said no sunshine until after the weekend.  Ta-da!!!  Shows how much he knows.  LOL.  It will probably rain again this afternoon but thank you Lord for a lovely morning.

.

Gabra........glad to see you today however brief your visit. Hope you rest well today.

.

Nance.......it's such fun to watch the young foals and calves so frisky in the early morning.  They seem to wake up in a new world every day.

.

Holly........what am I going to do with you?  You have a habit of posting photos of beautiful children but you don't tell us their names or their relation to you.  Is this one of your grandchildren.  He is a handsome young man.  Music festivals are always nice and a great way to spend your day off.  I hope that you and William will have an enjoyable time and the weather will be just perfect for you.  Pack a pic-nic basket and pick a spot that will be shady in the afternoon hours.  

.

Carol.......it was nice to see that you also posted this morning. Hope all is fine with you and yours.

May the Lord continue to heal and comfort those in need and keep us all safe from harm.

By late yesterday afternoon the rains were gone, the sun came out and the water in our area drained away quickly. Then, this morning, the heavy rain was back again but it only lasted a short while and stopped.  It looks like the bottom of heaven will open up again any moment but until then, it's a guessing game.  My home health nurse never made it out of her neighborhood yesterday but she called last night and said she would be here this morning.  I'm watching out the window for her to arrive now.  Hope she makes it.  

.

Nance.......thanks again for all the wonderful new information you are giving us.  I love reading your threads.

.

Holly.......that's a good little prayer you shared with us, thank you.  Sometimes we can feel lonely even when we are surrounded by friends and loved ones.  It's a emptiness that only God can fill.  Hope that you have a great and blessed day.

May the Lord comfort each of us and guide us in all our ways.  May He keep us ever safe in His loving and protective care.

Frog Strangler is not used loosly in the South this morning. Now I fully understand why so much of Texas experienced street flooding.  As the waters continued to rise here, they closed the schools but the busses cannot get the kids home for the high water.  They are broadcasting on TV to the parents that the kids are being kept safe on the bus until the water goes down.  Seems to me they would have been safer to have stayed in school.  We have high water in our street and cannot get to our mailbox.  If the rain ever lets up it should drain off in about an hour.  It has been non-stop and heavy all night with thunderstorms and hard rain. This morning they have started issuing tornado watches until 5pm.

.

Nance........I'm so sorry to hear about your mother's accident.  I will add her to my prayer list for speedy healing.  And yes......praising God right along with you that she has medication to keep away the pain. 

.

Michael........glad to hear that your garden is flourishing so well from the frequent rains.  It should love what we are sending your way next.  You won't believe the amount of rain that has passed through here and still coming down. My home health nurse called and said she was flooded in and couldn't get here.  I don't know about the highways, but in city traffic is almost none at all.  Hopefully it will lose it's punch before it reaches you and washes everything away.

.

Holly........I am in awe over the wingspan of that bird in flight. So beautiful, I can just see beautiful fans that those wings and the tail feathers would make.  Or better yet, what a regal war bonnet they would make.  It really is a very pretty graphic, no matter how you look at it.  

.

May the Lord guide us in all our ways, continue to provide for our individual needs and keep us safe from all harm.

Cloudy and very overcast in the south this morning.  There is a very heavy line of showers and thunderstorms moving eastward from Texas across Louisiana.  Within an hour, two at the most, we should be getting drenched big-time.  I think Texas reveived 3 to 5 inches in a short period of time with extreme street flooding.  Of course they flood so easily anyway, poor designing on their highways and lack of proper drainage.  Sure am glad I don't live in or anywhere near Houston.  They really get it bad.  

.

Hey Gerry........How are you and yours?  Did the rains wash you out?  Hope your area didn't get any of the flooding.

.

Michael.......your garden must be loving the rainfall, mix that with some sunshine and vitamin D and your crops will grow like weeds.  Enjoy the time and just sit back and watch them grow.  Our rains should reach you in a day or two.  You might want to get out the hip-waders just in case.

.

Nance........We didn't do anything special for the holiday weekend.  The only thing going on here was the special services they held at the cemetary, putting flags on the graves and having a special flag ceremony with a band and lots of TV interviews.  Somebody might have said some kind words on behalf of the veterans, I wouldn't know.  All of this is for the familys of the vets anyway, the vets know nothing of what is going on.  Glad you enjoyed your tacos, I love them too but can't eat them anymore, can't chew the taco shell.  It's just not worth the money for me to only be able to eat the meat, lettuce, tomato with a fork and throw the shell away.  It's embarrassing to eat a taco with a fork. LOL.  

.

Holly........I like the saying on your graphic.  Too many people are identified by their past, but they are what they have done.  Young people just don't realize that it's important to choose their friends wisely and the value of one's reputation.  Some of our actions will follow us all through our lives.......we best keep ourselves above reproach.  

.

May the Lord continue to lead us in all our ways, providing for our needs, and keeping us safe from all harm.

Clear sky, lots of sunshine and a high today predicted to 1 degree below 90.  Getting hot in a hurry down south.  Took it long enough to get here but then it heats up so fast. Thankful that I can stay indoors with the AC and enjoy a comfortable atmosphere.

.

Holly........Glad you are having a day off.  Most everything here is still open, business as usual.  There will be no mail, banks are closed, and government offices are closed.  But everybody else is out beating the streets like any other day of the week.  Ray even had an appointment this morning to go have blood drawn at the doctors.  We were very surprised that they would be open.  

.

Looks like you and I are the only ones up this early today.  I see that Nance has been posting already on the other threads, so we know she is up and busy already.  I worked her new puzzle yesterday.  Those are such fun.  Maybe some others will come in later in the day.

.

May the Lord continue to heal and comfort the physical and emotional pains of His children and keep us all safe in His merciful and loving care.

Absolutely gorgeous day down south, couldn't have ordered one any better.  There is even a little breeze mildly shaking the azalea bushes and barely moving the trees.

.

Nance........Yeaaaaa.....70 F......finally Spring is sprung in Canada.  So happy for everyone north of our border now enjoying warmer and comfortable temperatures.  Enjoy it while you can.  Go work in the yard and soak of some of that rich vitamin D floating around.  LOL.

.

Kaya.......Love the rain drops dancing, does that mean that you are getting rain?  Or maybe you just liked that particular graphic?  Hope that your head is about healed completely by now and you are back up to your normal self again.

.

Holly.........The story about the cab driver is a good example of the kind of Christians the Lord wants us to be.  We must learn to put our own desires aside and follow God's direction in our lives on everything.  In a world as fast paced as we live in today, it's hard to just STOP and listen.

The poem sounds like what my Poppa always said, Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today......get up and make hay while the sun shines.  Of course there were times when he also told me to go find a buzz-saw and play with it.

.

May the Lord continue to provide for the needs of His children and keep us all safe from harm.

A NYC Taxi driver wrote:

I arrived at the address and honked the horn. After waiting a few minutes I honked again. Since this was going to be my last ride of my shift I thought about just driving away, but inst
ead I put the car in park and walked up to the door and knocked.. 'Just a minute', answered a frail, elderly voice. I could hear something being dragged across the floor.

After a long pause, the door opened. A small woman in her 90's stood before me. She was wearing a print dress and a pillbox hat with a veil pinned on it, like somebody out of a 1940's movie.

By her side was a small nylon suitcase. The apartment looked as if no one had lived in it for years. All the furniture was covered with sheets.

There were no clocks on the walls, no knickknacks or utensils on the counters. In the corner was a cardboard
box filled with photos and glassware.

'Would you carry my bag out to the car?' she said. I took the suitcase to the cab, then returned to assist the woman.

She took my arm and we walked slowly toward the curb.

She kept thanking me for my kindness. 'It's nothing', I told her.. 'I just try to treat my passengers the way I would want my mother to be treated.'

'Oh, you're such a good boy, she said. When we got in the cab, she gave me an address and then asked, 'Could you drive
through downtown?'

'It's not the shortest way,' I answered quickly..

'Oh, I don't mind,' she said. 'I'm in no hurry. I'm on my way to a hospice.

I looked in the rear-view mirror. Her eyes were glistening. 'I don't have any family left,' she continued in a soft voice..'The doctor says I don't have very long.' I quietly reached over and shut off the meter.

'What route would you like me to take?' I asked.

For the next two hours, we drove through the city. She showed me the building where she had once worked as an elevator operator.

We drove through the neighborhood where she and her husband had lived when they were newlyweds She had me pull up in front of a furniture warehouse that had once been a ballroom where she had gone dancing as a girl.

Sometimes she'd ask me to slow in front of a particular building or corner and would sit staring into the darkness, saying nothing.

As the first hint of sun was creasing the horizon, she suddenly said, 'I'm tired.Let's go now'.
We drove in silence to the address she had given me. It was a low building, like a small convalescent home, with a driveway that passed under a portico.

Two orderlies came out to the cab as soon as we pulled up. They were solicitous and intent, watching her every move.
They must have been expecting her.

I opened the trunk and took the small suitcase to the door. The woman was already seated in a wheelchair.

'How much do I owe you?' She asked, reaching into her purse.

'Nothing,' I said

'You have to make a living,' she answered.

'There are other passengers,' I responded.

Almost without thinking, I bent and gave her a hug.She held onto me tightly.

'You gave an old woman a little moment of joy,' she said. 'Thank you.'

I squeezed her hand, and then walked into the dim morning light.. Behind me, a door shut.It was the sound of the closing of a life..

I didn't pick up any more passengers that shift. I drove aimlessly lost in thought. For the rest of that day,I could hardly talk.What if that woman had gotten an angry driver,or one who was impatient to end his shift? What if I had refused to take the run, or had honked once, then driven away?

On a quick review, I don't think that I have done anything more important in my life.

We're conditioned to think that our lives revolve around great moments.

But great moments often catch us unaware-beautifully wrapped in what others may consider a small one.

hello.have a beautiful night.

IF I KNEW

If I knew it would be the last time
That I'd see you fall asleep,
I would tuck you in more tightly
and pray the Lord, your soul to keep.

If I knew it would be ! the last time
that I see you walk out the door,
I would ! give you a hug and kiss
and call you back for one more.

If I knew it would be the last time
I'd hear your voice lifted up in praise,
I would video tape each action and word,
so I could play them back day after day.

If I knew it would be the last time,
I could spare an extra minute
to stop and say "I love you,"
instead of assuming you would KNOW I do.

If I knew it would be the last time
I would be there to share your day,
Well I'm sure you'll have so many more,
so I can let just this one slip away.

For surely there's always tomorrow
to make up for an oversight,
and we always get a second chance
to make everything just right.

There will always be another day
to say "I love you,"
And certainly there's another chance
to say our "Anything I can do?"

But just in case I might be wrong,
and today is all I get,
I'd like to say how much I love you
and I hope we never forget.

Tomorrow is not promised to anyone,
young or old alike,
And today may be the last chance
you get to hold your loved one tight.

So if you're waiting for tomorrow,
why not do it today?
For if tomorrow never comes,
you'll surely regret the day,

That you didn't take that extra time
for a smile, a hug, or a kiss
and you were too busy to grant someone,
what turned out to be their one last wish.

So hold your loved ones close today,
and whisper in their ear,
Tell them how much you love them
and that you'll always hold them dear

Take time to say "! I'm sorry,"
"Please forgive me," "Thank you," or "It's okay! ."
And if tomorrow never comes,
you'll have no regrets about today.

Very cloudy and overcast this morning.  Looks like a little rain might make a call sometime during the day.  Just have to wait and see what's next.

.

Carol.........Love your little graphic, nice to know that you are thinking of us.  I know you have had a very hard adjustment to make and the tasks are not easy.  I know what it's like to be behind in everything and to feel like your just spinning your wheels in the snow and getting nowhere.  As for your own house.......you have the rest of your life to catch up there, it's not going anywhere.  Just do what is necessary to wrap up your mom's business and let your mind focus on the light at the end of the tunnel.  They say that God will never give us more than we can handle, but I have known times when I thought for sure He had me mixed up with someone else.  That is when I had to draw from His eternal source of strength to get me through each and every day until I was finally out of the tunnel and back into the light.

My prayers are with you, just keep hanging in there.  You said you will put in veggies today......I didn't know you were a gardener/farmer like Michael.  He plants a big garden every year and they can the harvest to eat on all year.  You and he will have to compare notes on your crops and make all our mouths water.

.

Gabra.........Hope you had a good night at work and will be able to rest well today.  Sweet dreams.

naw, Jeannette.  kinda overwhelmed by circumstances and monitoring my stimulation.  the devil seems to throw distractions in front of me, and sometimes i'm not seeing the forest for the trees.  in a danger zone for mania right now.  "drowning" from the process of accounting for things that were lost in my mom's house fire, falling behind in my own household...wishing for more time, energy and money.  have been more generous than 10%...need seems great...

trying to do what i can with whats been given me to do...

will put in vegetables today if it doesn't rain and continue weeding...

Lots of wonderful sunshine and predicted to be 89 for the next 4 days.  Hot and humid.  Great weather for the kids to be outdoors and not cooped up inside for a rainy weekend.

.

Kaya......cute graphics.......hope that you have a great holiday filled with lots of joy and celebrating.  Just be safe and don't over-do it.

.

Carol.......so great to see you back with us again.  Has Spring finally found the state of Nebraska?  I was beginning to think you trapped into winter and couldn't get out.  It must have felt like that for you also.

.

Michael.........Sounds like Luc is well on his way to becoming a farmer.  You are a good teacher.  I cannot begin to imagine the yield you will get from 30 tomato plants.  That's going to be a bunch and a half.  Great to hear that your surgery healed so quickly.  We do serve an awesome God who is ever faithful to answer our prayers.  Only a few more weeks to wait on the adoption.  Maybe it will be in time for Father's Day.  

.

Holly........I truly love your graphic of the KJV weapon.  That is such a cute idea for this evil time in creation.  Crime is all around us and people never stop to think that Satan is the biggest criminal of all.  I don't know where you found that one but thanks for sharing it with all of us.  I also liked the story of the little girl and our Lord Jesus.  

.

Justice........Hope that you will feel like celebrating a little bit of your holiday today also.  Just make sure you don't over-do it.  Billie is totally dependent on you so you must take good care of yourself.  You are also a very special lady and very much loved by our heavenly Father and by this Christian fellowship group.  Your heart and your soul are no different from anyone elses, never forget that.  We are all brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus and children of Jehovah God, our Father.  

.

May the Lord watch over us and keep us safe from all harm while continuing to provide for our individual needs.

"Dont worry 'bout a thing. 'Cause every little thing gonna be alright."  

One of the best quotes,from the Hon.Robert Nesta Marley......

Is this not truth?Even those of us who have face horrific things,does God not promise that,some how,it will be ok?

"ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD TO THOSE WHO LOVE GOD".

Times there are when that seems impossible.But Almighty Jehova never breaks His promise.No promise we will not suffer,we will in babylon here.But some how He will make it ok.Remember this when you are doing the suffering part,ok.Love all of you.

Jeanette and Holly I do love gardening. I am about to get caught up.
Jeanette, Luc helped me plant the tomatoes he set out 30 plants so far.
Jeanette the healing of surgery healed faster than I expected on my noise. Thanks for prayers. I do wear a sun hat and use sun screen now. I have had several skin cancers. I have two more on my arm has to be removed later.
I have problems sleeping at night too. I can go to bed at 10:00 and back up at 2:00. Then later I go back to sleep. I know its like time has moved in a fast pace for me. The weeks fly by for me I am so busy this time of year. I thank God I am able to get out and work in the garden.
Jeanette the adoption for Luc should be final in a few more weeks. They are waiting for my background check to come back from the police.
God bless you all.

Bright sunshine and clear blue skies down South.  Looks like a hot one in the making.

Holly........I'm in agreement with you.  Where is everybody.  With the good weather having taken so long to arrive, I can only imagine everyone is enjoying the extended daylight and comfortable temperatures outdoors.  We already know that Michael spends his daylight hours working in the garden and it's no little one either.  Others may be working in their flower beds or other outdoor tasks that cannot be done in the winter months.  Some are getting ready for Vacation Bible School to start in a couple of weeks or just heavily involved in spring cleaning.  I try so hard to find excuses for those who are missing in action from group.  I am most thankful for your loyalty though.  You are an encouragement to me and I'm sure to others when they are here.  Hope that all of your appointments go well for you today.  Too bad they couldn't have been for tomorrow and given  you two days off in a row from work.

May the Lord guide us today in all our thoughts, words, and deeds and keep us all safe from harm.

Holly.......So sorry you had such a rough night.  Looks like we were both paddling in the same canoe because I couldn't sleep either.  I was awake at 12:30am......4:00am.....and 7:30am.  When I have nights like that, I figure somebody somewhere is in need of prayer, so I pray for all those I can think of before going back to sleep.  I think I'm coming down with a bladder infection.  Not good news for me. After your appointment today, you need to hit the pillows and sleep right on through until tomorrow morning.  You will get old in a hurry doing without proper rest.

.

May the Lord guide us in all our thoughts, words, and deeds and continue to keep us all safe in His loving care.

Hello.It is 3:30 a.m.,and I can not sleep.William can't sleep either.We were both tossing and turning and driving one another crazy,so now we are both up and on a laptop.This sucks,as I have to get up at 4:45.It is going to be an interesting day,to say the least.I thought that I would do something constructive until I can fall asleep.Grrrrr! I hope that all of you have a happy and prosperous day.I have only a part day of work,as I have an appointment with my cardioligist.Also,my insurance is need change as of june 1,please pray that I am able to obtain new insurance by then,as I am anxious much for it.Also,continue to pray for all unsaved family of group members,for mark myrie,for the sudanese woman they want to kill.No shortage of things to pray about.I appreciate all of you,hugs to you,and praises to ALMIGHTY forever.

Partly cloudy mixed with bright sunshine.  Humidity is on the rise again.  

.

Holly.......saw on the weather map this morning that you will be getting wet again on Thursday.  My flowers are showing signs of wilting this morning, guess they won't last much longer now.  

.

Michael.......hope it isn't too hot for you to do your plowing. Also hope you have a big straw hat to keep the sun off your face.  How is the healing coming along?  Maybe Luc will get home from school in time to help with the planting.  Had to laugh at your mention of blackberry winter.  My g-daughter, Jessi, went with some friends from church to pick blackberries.  The next morning she washed some and put them into a bowl, sugared them and began to eat.  She said they were so delicious........until something went crunch. It was a june bug.  I still gag just thinking about it.  She said it made her sick.  She may never eat blackberries again.

.

Justice.......how wonderful to see you here this morning. What am I doing today?  I'll probably work a jig-saw puzzle until home health gets here to help me get cleaned up.  Then I'll blow dry my hair and crochet, maybe take a little nap, and then crochet some more.  Waiting for tonight to see who wins the mirrorball trophy on Dancing With The Stars and who wins on Voice.  I'm already sad because Blacklist has been taken off until next season.  I really like that show.  Mayby it's just James Spader that I like.  I've liked him since the days of Boston Legal.  He is such a snob and so funny at times.  He's good in whatever role he plays.

.

Gabra.......glad to see you are a little more rested.  Whatever it is that is frightening you, please ask so we can discuss it. You need to feel confident about your future, and to be able to embrace it with joy and jubilation, not fear and dread.  Hope you have a great and peaceful day.  Rest well and sweet dreams to you.

.

May the Lord bless each of us with a safe and joyful day and provide comfort and healing for those in need.

Good Afternoon Nance and Carol and Holly and Linda!

Our Farmer's Market has never displayed their veggies in any type of floral arrangement.  If you go back again, snag a picture on your cell phone for us.  That would be interesting to see.  Sounds pretty anyway.

.

Carol........Glad to know that you are back in there and keeping yourself busy.  I know it's hard but you have lots and lots of prayers pushing you along.  Now that the days are getting longer.....LOL.....maybe you will have more time to come visit with all of us.  We have sure missed you.

.

Holly......Hope the lake doesn't flood anybody's property to the point of doing any damage.  I was in hopes that the rains would have moved on away from you by today.  Hope you and William managed to stay dry at least.  Enjoy your day together.  

.

Linda.......Glad to see you back again.  Sorry that you got bumped out of part of your days wages though.  At least you have a chance now to get plenty of rest for church tomorrow.  I did see on the weather map that there was snow north of Chicago.  I wondered if it would get to you or not.  I've never heard of snow this late for that region either.  Also, I don't think this is all just a freak of nature.  I think man might have a hand in tampering with the conditions to cause this.  

.

Great........Can't get the font color to paint over all my little dots to separate the paragraphs.  Oh well, it's normal to have a glitch of some kind on a Care2 weekend.  LOL.

 

Hope everyone has a joyful and safe weekend.  May the Lord guide each of us in all our ways and provide for the needs of all His children.

Good afternoon everyone. Slow day at work so sent home early. Wasn't too happy about it, but gave me a chance to stop at the library. Well winter isn't quite ready to let go yet. Would you believe we got snow yesterday(friday)? Couldn't believe it when I left my apt to walk to the bus stop. Snow was coming down and in the middle of May. I've lived the Chicagoland area my entire life and can recall getting snow in May. Usually April is the latest we get snow. The good thing was it wasn't cold enough for it too stick and it melted as it hit the ground. By early afternoon it had cleared up.
Jeanette-sorry for the problems with your home health care. Hopefully we can get things straigtened out.
Carol-sorry about your mother's passing and the loss of your job. I think it's wonderful that you volunteer to work with almheizer? and dementia patients. Will be praying that the Lord will see you through the difficult times you are facing.
Want to check in with my other groups, so hopefully will visit again in the coming week.

Good morning. children of God.  As you may know, my mothers house burned down about a month ago and we lost her 4 days later from the smoke inhalation...took her off the respirator.  trauma, shock, grief and lots of work sifting through the debris for anything related to geneology or sentimental for the brothers and sisters.  as you may know, i took care of my mother, so i lost my job also.  now volunteers at a partial care day program for elders with dementia or alzehiemers.  the enemy has thrown alot at me, but i just keep juggling, and smiling.  :)  not even death can seperate us from the love of God! love to all.

Blue sky and sunshine to greet another beautiful day.  It's warming back up again from our wonderful little cool spell.

.

Michael........The weather map this morning showed your area and all up the Eastern seaboard getting a good soaking of rain.  Just don't let it wash you off the mountain.  You did get a little cooler than we did.  We reached 50, and our record low for that date was 48.  Just couldn't break the old record.  Also saw this morning that Illinois and Michigan are getting snow again.  It's so unreal.  It's not much but still in the middle of May???  Snowing on the Spring flowers.  I enjoyed both of your articles this morning, How to Fix a Broken Society.  I don't look for that to ever happen in this late date and time.  However, man being the head of woman........?  There is still time to exercise this in the marriage.  There are many women that feel they are in a higher position to make decisions than their husbands, but until you establish the proper order within your marriage, you will never know the fulness of joy that the Lord can give you. 

.

Carol........I loved your poem.  I hope that everyone will take time to go to that thread and read it.  It's so wonderful to see you back posting with us again.  Please don't be a stranger.  We miss you.

.

Ian.......It was great to see you posting again yesterday also. The graphic was beautiful and you could just see the power in the different patterns of the water's movement.   Hope to see you more often as well.

.

Holly........Hope you are able to stay dry on you walk from the bus to work and back.  Being wet in the A/C all day will make you sick really quick.  I didn't call health care yet, thought I would sleep on it and pray about it first.  They are on their way out right now to help me bathe and wash my hair.  

.

Gabra.......Sorry if I added to your confusion.  That is the last thing I wanted to do.  Think on it for a while and then maybe we can discuss it some more if you need.  Hoping that you are able to sleep good today, if you are getting rain also, it should come easy for you.  I love to sleep to the sounds of rain.

May the Lord guide us in all our thoughts, words, and deeds and continue to keep us all safe in His merciful and protective care.

Gabra.......I have found the following information for you and hope it is helpful.  You need not ever make apologies for asking questions.  I'm elated that you are reading, studying and trying to learn.  You will never hear me complain about that.  The more you learn, the more you grow.  

.

That man was made in the "image and likeness" of God:  This image is found chiefly in man's tri-unity, and in his moral nature.  Man is spirit and soul and body (1 Thess. 5:23).  "Spirit" is that part of man which "knows" (1 Corinthians 2:11), and which allies him to the spiritual creation and gives him God-consciousness.  "Soul" in itself implies self-conscious life, as distinguished from plants, which have unconscious life.  In that sense animals also have "soul" (Genesis 1:24).  But the soul of man has a vaster content than "soul" as applied to beast life.  It is the seat of his emotions, desires, affections ( Psalms 42:1-6 ).  The "heart" is, in Scripture usage, nearly synonymous with "soul".  Because the natural man is, characteristically, the soulual or psychical man, "soul" is often used as synonymous with the individual, (Gen. 12:5).  The body, separable from the spirit and soul, and susceptible to death, is nevertheless and integral part of man, as the resurrection shows (John 5:28, 29;  1 Corinthians 15:47-50;  Rev. 20:11-13).  It is the seat of the senses (the means by which the spirit and soul have world-consciousness) and of the fallen Adamic nature (Romans 7:23, 24).

.

Because God made mankind and animals from the dust of the earth, after death both bodies (man and beast/animal) decay and turn back into dust again and are rejoined to the earth.  The soul of mankind, depending on if they were born again believers or not, go to their final destination, either heaven or hell.  The Spirit goes back to God from whence it came.  So far as mankind knows, the soul of animals ceases to exist upon the death of the body.

 

Nance.......Hope that your long holiday weekend will be safe, fun-filled and your skillets filled with fish.  Sounds like a great time to be had for all.  I love to fish, even from the banks or levies, but boats are always better.  I will keep prayers for the safe travel for everyone going up for all.

Severe clear, blue sky and sunshine all over the place. Temps dropped overnight into the low 50's and we all slept so good.  The temperature inside didn't drop though, the AC kept coming on all night.  Just having the lower humidity made the difference.  

.

Holly........after reading the postings this morning, I felt like an idiot for having asked the age of the tree.  When I read Linda's post, I went back looking and saw what I had missed yesterday.  That is an interesting thought though that the tree was just a little seedling when our Lord was upon the earth.  I'm really surprised that more historians haven't attempted to locate the Garden of Eden with the tree of life.  Hope everything improves at your work, you need to be happy to do a good job.  I'll help you pray about that.  

.

Linda........I was beginning to think Spring would never come your way this year.  So happy that all is green, budding, and blossoming for you now.  You needed to catch up with the rest of us.  My home health care is all messed up right now. I don't know what happened but just all of a sudden every-body started leaving and taking jobs elsewhere.  They have hired a new staff, from the management to the nursing staff.  There are very few of the old employees still there. I'm accustomed to only having 1 nurse to visit me all the time.  That way she can see if I'm improving or failing, if my memory is still working, etc.  Now they are alternating between 2 nurses and I can't remember which one I shared what ailments with.  This week she asked me if I was having any pain.  I told her yes but none that I cared to discuss with her.  That didn't go over too well.  I am trying to get the nerve to call out there and speak to the new DON about my schedule.  I'm too old for all of this confusion in my life.

.

Kaya........Thank goodness, praise the Lord, that you are okay. However, stitches in the noggin and bruised ribs sounds serious to me.  I'm praying for your quick and complete healing.  That was funny about your babies being "pasta-farians", but now that you have converted to Christianity, that name no longer fits.  By the way, I'm praying for your family in that regard also.   

.

Today is a big day for our family.  Our g-daughter, Jessi, is 18 years old.  She was just made manager of a new yogurt shoppe in Natchez.  I'm soooooo proud of her.

.

Justice.......You are right, if one is not careful, life will drive you crazy.  That is why we need our Lord to guide us through each day and carry us over the rough patches.

.

May the Lord guide us in everything we say and do, and may He continue to keep us all safe from harm.

Hello everyone. Sorry I haven't been around lately. Tried to post earlier in the week, however, the section where you post a reply was taking forever to load, so I just give up. Also wanted to post something before we started the new month except the computer I was using kept freezing up.
We've been getting quite a lot of rain the past couple weeks. This past Monday we had an intense thunderstorm. I barely made it to my place from the bus stop when the rain came pouring down. One plus side to all the rain is how lush and green the grass has become. Then finally seeing spring flowers, mostly tulips and daffodils. Unfortunately all the rain has also brought out the dandelions. It's as if all decided to appear overnight. The flowering trees are starting to blossom and the regular trees are starting to get their leaves in.
Michael-sorry you had to go for surgery to remove more cancer, however glad the doctor was able to get it all. Is there anything you can do to keep the cancer from returning all the time? I agree we are getting close to the last days and can't wait for Jesus to return and set up His kingdom.
Jeanette-hope your home health care visit went well. I also love to watch a good thunderstorm and see the lightening flashing. That is, as long as I'm safely inside somewhere and not out in the elements.
Holly-the pic of the Baobob tree in Africa is awesome. What part of Africa is it located in? Just think that tree was just a seedling when Jesus was walking the earth.
Have to go now, but will visit again soon.

Thank you for the prayers.But I am ok.I may get overwhelmed at times,but my beliefs prohibit doing what was suggested.I came home,but I can not work yet.I was laughing,because holly and Tasunka were joking about my husband breaking the stereotype that italians are good cooks-he is not -lol-and if a rastafarian and an italian have a baby,what do you call it.They sayed our babies are pastafarians-lol.Crazy people.I am ok.I have stitches in my head.My ribs are bruised,not sure how.Nothing serious.I wish that many of you were her with me.Pray for the whole world,and for specific needs and people in this group.I can tell you,some seem ok,but are not.Love you all.I do.

Cloudy, much cooler, and yes, it's raining again......or still.  Off and on, nothing steady and threatening.  Today's high barely into the 70's and tonights barely into the 50's.  So nice and still comfortable.  It's the humidity that's hard to deal with.

.

Gabra.......treasure those quiet moments, they don't come along too often.  I used to long for mine to go see me-maw for a day, and then when they did I missed them so much I just couldn't function well without them.  Thanks for letting us know about Kaya.  I'm keeping her heavy in my prayers for complete healing.

.

Holly........What a nice way to start your day, relaxed and with the one you love.  Teresa says you're welcome for the touch-up.  That pic of the tree that you posted, that thing is so huge.......does anybody have any idea what the age of that tree is?  Has anybody ever measured it?

.

Nance.......Know you must have had a great time for Mother's Day.  Gracie doesn't know now, but someday it will be important to her to see photos of 4 generations of women together for special days.  

.

Justice......love your graphics this morning.  Time is such a terrible thing to waste.  Especially those precious minutes that are spent away from the God.

Remember to give thanks always for our blessings.  May the Lord continue to bless us with provisions for our daily needs and for keeping us all safe from harm.

Overcast with an occasional peek at the sun but it doesn't last long.  Think we are due for rain and t-storms this afternoon.

.

Justice.......I needed to hear and be reminded of the passage in Jeremiah concerning worry.  Thanks for posting it.  By returning to where you are needed, I assume that you will be taking care of Kaya for a while.  Hoping and praying that her injury is not serious and that she will heal quickly.

.

Gabra.......Thanks for requesting prayer for Kaya, and I agree with you, her husband is not a full athiest.  Hopefully she is slowly getting through to him and maybe soon he will also receive the gift of salvation because of her.  Her relationship with God seems to be having an affect on him. As for the trinity, just accept it if you can.  It is still not clear to me although I believe it with all my heart and soul. There are times when I think I've got it, and then my understanding just goes out the window and I have to start over again.  I never stop believing though, even when my understanding is clouded.  Yes, I did enjoy the song very much.  Thanks for sharing it with me.  I have always heard people say that John was a love Book of the New Testament but my mother always said Ephesians was the love Book.  I'm at a loss what your mother might have been talking about but as long as it's good, just praise the Lord.

.

Michael..........That does seem like a long way to go just to have stitches removed.  Seems like any clinic doctor would be able to do that for you.  But I guess the original doctor would like to see how his/her own handiwork is looking and healing.  Will be saying travel prayers for your safe travel.

.

Holly.........When was the last time you checked the settings on your camera?  It is showing a bad tint.  Teresa used her Photo Impact or whatever her program is to touch up the color for you a little bit.  I'll send you a copy in your message in-box shortly of it.  The colors are a little more natural.  And yes.......seeing Mason wrapped in the afghan put a great big smile on my face.  I almost didn't recogize it though, it looks yellow instead of white with all the pastel colors.  Here is the retouched print.

One hour and 20 minute drive for that.

God bless you all.

Hi. I am thankful for my mother having a recent breakthrough,thankful to Almighty,and to the people He used,particularly in this group,kaya,jeanette,justice.....God uses you.

Alexis needs our prayers right now.She sustained an injury,which at first was thought to be self inflicted,but now it is believed that it was a siezure and she fell,not jumped.She also thinks people are angry at her.Her husband claims hes an athiest,but asked us to say a prayer,I think he is not an athiest.

I had a great mother's day,and I hope all of you did as well.

Thanks for the info on God and 3 people,Jeanette.I kind of et it,but I don't think HE is ever overstand completely,He is beyond comprehension.

I want to know,did you like the song I sent you?My mother read a thing she called the love chapter,I forgot where it is in the bible,but it made that song come to my mind.I thought that you would like it.

GETTING READY TO GO SOON.lOVE,HUGS,BLESSINGS TO YOU.

A gift for you,found it on facebook.

I interceded for you today, asking God to deliver you from worry. Worry is the sin of doubting that God is sovereign in your life. There will be elements to your day that you did not expect and could not have predicted. I asked Him to give you the assurance that despite the unexpected elements of your day, He has made plans for you that are for good and not for evil, to give you a future and an expected end, in accordance with Jeremiah 29:11.

Our day started off with beautiful sunshine, but it has since turned cloudy with a heavy threat of rain.  We had some good rains yesterday, the heaviest being about 6pm and then light showers into the night.  Loved it.

.

Holly.......sounds like you had a good time with the babies. The best way to spend a day is in loving the children that God gave us that made us mother's in the first place.  It was good that Jasmine had an outing and a chance to be the center of somebody's affections since the boys are too young for that yet.

.

Gabra......Thanks for the wishes, hope that you had a wonderful day with your little blessings also.

.

Justice.........my word, people there are living stacked on top of one another.  I think they need a bigger island.  Those poor children have no yard space to play in.  Saying travel prayers for your safe return to Kingston.

.

May the Lord keep us all safe from harm and continue to provide for the needs and healing of His children.

Blue sky and sunshine starts off our day but the clouds are beginning to move in.  We only have a 30% chance of rain today, but that could change anytime.

.

I wish all the mothers in our group a most Happy Mothers Day.  My daughter sent me flowers (a big multicolored bouquet of Carnations) that were delivered late yesterday afternoon and right now she is in the kitchen cooking dinner for me.  She is such a blessisng to me.  

.

For those of us who know the grief and sorrow of not having our Mothers with us today, may the Lord comfort our hearts and give us peace in our souls.

May the Lord continue to provide for the needs of His children and in mercy protect us from all harm.

We sure did enjoy the rain yesterday and most of the night. Teresa and I were singing, Love a Rainy Day, Love a Rainy Night, Love to hear the thunder, love to see the lightening as it lights up the sky.........Then we went to sleep to the sound of the pitter patter.  People in Missouri and surrounding area are do for severe weather today, will keep them in prayer.  

.

Michael.......So sorry that you had to have yet another one removed, I know you didn't feel good enough to take that long drive back home.  Had we known about it, we could have been praying for you, but the Lord took care of you without our help anyway.  Praise Him from Whom all blessings flow.  I really enjoyed your devotional this morning.  The next generation will determine our future and they need to be more than ever grounded in the Word of the Lord.  There is an old Indian Proverb that says......"We did not inherit this world from our ancestors, we have only borrowed it from our children.  That is why we must take good care of it."  

.

Holly........Jibril will have a great time all summer long with the pool.  What an excellent gift.  Hope you have lots of fun with him at the party today.  You will get to hold and spoil the new baby at the same time.  

.

One of my best friends phoned me yesterday to let me know that her sister will be a 1st time grandma in September and that she (herself) is expecting her 2nd grandchild Dec. 31.  Only 7 weeks along now, too early to tell what it is.  Her sister is expecting a grandson.  So guess what?  I get to make 2 more baby afghans.  I should have opened a yarn store 40 years ago.  I would have a booming business by now to support me in my old age.  LOL.

.

It's mid-morning and the clouds are starting to burn off and the sun is now peeking through the windows.  It's going to be a beautiful day.

May the Lord guide us in all our thoughts, words, and deeds and continue to provide for the needs and healing of His children and keeping us safe from harm.

Yep, just as I suspected, we have rain and a 70% chance of it all day long.  But, we love the rain so it is still a beautiful day.

.

Kaya.....I'm sorry that I had to delete your post this morning.  On our group home page it states clearly that we do not allow petitions in Salvation By Grace.  I have tried time after time to edit that to include "no solicitations" as they are also not permitted.  I have been following the news about these Nigerian kidnapped girls and my heart goes out to them and to their families.  I hope that everyone will do what they can to see these girls returned to their families safely.  All we can do is pray and that is not a little thing, there is mighty power in prayer.

.

Nance.......I had to look up snow drops, I wasn't familiar with that term.  They look like what we call bells.  They also resemble the old-time street lights the way they hang to one side of the long straight stem.  Thank  you for posting about them, otherwise I might never have known their real name.  Glad things are sprouting and blooming for you now.

.

Holly........that is one busy post this morning.  It should put a smile on anyone's face.  LOL.   Glad to see you got back ok from your harassment of yesterday.

.

Justice........must have been exciting to see your relatives again.  I can just imagine all the ooo'ing and ahhh'ing going on as they passed Billie around from one set of loving arms to another.  Drink your coffee, say your prayers, and act like company, doing nothing but getting stronger.  Eat everything they give you.  Prayers still going up for you from here as well.

.

Carol.......saw where parts of Nebraska are getting more snow.  Is that where you are?  It's time ya'll did the dance of Spring and got rid of that messy stuff.  Hope to hear from you again soon.

.

Florika.......Are you finished with winter yet?  We would love to hear from you too.

.

Linda......I know when the weather permits you will make another stop in to visit with us.  You should be getting rain today also.

.

Gerry.........?  How are the classes coming along.  Your daughter should be finished soon and coming home for the summer break.  Let us know how you are doing, please.

Ian.......Enjoy your Special Day and God Bless you and yours.

Very windy, blue sky patches among lots of white clouds.  The sun is in and out as the clouds race by.  All of this spells one thing.....rain on the way.  The humidity and dew point are both on the rise and breathing is becoming more difficult by the hour it seems.

.

Gabra......Sorry you had to miss a day of work.  I know you enjoyed being with the children but it's never fun to get a short paycheck.  Hope that it wasn't illness that kept your mother from showing up for you.  You have asked a very good question concerning the "trinity", I only hope that I can give you an acceptable answer that you might understand.  You are also a trinity.  You are made up of Body... Soul... and Spirit.  When a person dies, the Body goes into the grave, the Soul goes to either heaven or hell, depending on whether or not the person was a child of God or not, and the Spirit goes back to God from whence it came.  Although there are 3 parts of your make-up, you are still only one person.  Another example is a 3 leaf clover.  You only have one clover but there are 3 separate leaves on it.  In heaven we have One Godhead.  Although He is One God, there are 3 persons that make up that Godhead.  

 photo FSHSclover-1.gif  Those 3 persons are, The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  They are all equal, they are all One, and yet they are separate.  Think of a married couple....they were 2 people but they became one in marriage.  Now instead of two, they are 1 couple.  They have their first child and the three of them become 1 family.  I hope I'm helping and not confusing you more.  Now.........is it selfish for people to come to God to keep from going to hell.  I'm going to step out on a limb here and say "NO".  People go to God because it is the desire of their heart not to spend eternity separated from God and in a burning lake of fire.  God "could"....if He wanted to....cause every person on this earth to become saved, born again Christians.  But He doesn't want to.  To "make" someone love you is like waiting for a train at the airport.  It just isn't going to happen.  God wants all of mankind to choose to love Him.  He knows the hearts of mankind and those that do not want anything to do with Him, those are the ones that will also have no fear of Hell.  They just don't believe it exist.  They wouldn't go to God trying to excape hell or for any other reason.  If a person fears hell, then they have a fear of God also, and that is a good thing.  I fear His awesome power and His fierce wrath.  I am also comforted by the depth of His great love and humbled by His mercy and unlimited grace that He extends to all of His children.  Gabra.......you make me smile because you remind me so much of myself.  One of my biggest downfalls in school was talking too much.  My teachers called me down countless times a day for that.  They never accused me of thinking too much or over analyzing things until I started studing law and the Bible.  I've been told even recently that my mind goes to the strangest places, I think about things other people don't even begin to imagine.  Example:  In Genesis 1:28, that early in the Bible and while Adam and Eve were in the Garden of Eden, God told them:  "Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it:"  After reading that verse for years....one day a single word jumped off the page and right into my face. The word "replenish".  Then I began to think......if Adam and Eve were the first people God ever made, then what are they supposed to replenish?  What was here before them?  My mind was in gear now and the wheels have been turning ever since.  You wouldn't believe the things I have dug up to study and stumbled over in my years as a student of the Scriptures.  I have learned that no matter how many times you might read something, be careful, because there is something new there hiding from you.  When you are ready to receive new things from God, the Holy Spirit will enlighten you and show you the hidden things of God.  You are far from being annoying.  Asking questions is what this group is here for.

.

Nance....Glad you are enjoying the sunshine.  It's about time.

Kaya.......JJ just left this morning and already the calm is gone?  If everyone is that hyper, it's a wonder you didn't all explode.  I would imagine everyone was being calm and quiet in respect for the new born.  I'm happy for her getting to see relatives she hasn't seen in a good while. Family needs to keep in touch when they can.  Since I have missed JJ this morning, would you please tell Rahab that I got her message and I'm sorry she is still having difficulty with Care 2.  At least they haven't kicked her off, she is still showing up as a member of the group.  Maybe it's just her computer.

It's also great to hear that Billie Lee is up to 5 pounds.  I'm still praying for you to get your iron levels back up to normal again.  That concerns me a lot, but you already know that.  Now, you have me confused.  Who is Kaya's cousin that you were not aware that I knew?  Holly?  Gabra?  I don't know the blood relations between any of you.  The only one that I do not know as well is Rahab, but only because she had trouble with Care2 and now that she is back, she is being bashful about posting.  Going to go find something left from last nights dinner and heat it up again for lunch.  Back later if time permits.

Ole Buttermilk Sky, I'm keeping my eye peeled on you, tra-la-la-la and it's such a beautiful day again in the south.  We do have a buttemilk sky, just little white bumpy fluffs of cotton surrounded by little patches of blue scooting by in the breeze.  I love this weather.

.

Michael........I'm so thrilled that you are also able to enjoy the gift of good weather, we waited a long time for it.  I pray it will be a mild and enjoyable summer for us all.  

.

Gabra........We don't mind if your mornings start during our afternoons.  We do understand that you are working nights and your days are turned around from ours.  Hope that you are able to get enough rest.  It's always harder to sleep in the day time than at night.  I looked up Romans 8:34 for you and it says....."Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us."  An easier thing to envision, instead of our Lord praying for us, might be a court-room setting.  God is the Judge, the Devil is the District Attorney trying to prosecute us, and Jesus Christ is our Lawyer, always pleading our case, making intercession to the Judge for us, that He paid the penalty for our crimes and we are now forgiven.  

.

Nance......It's been so long since I even thought about jumping rope like that.  I did my share of it but it was never my favorite pass-time.  Hot Peppers always messed me up. Glad that the festival is over, the whole weekend was filled with wrecks and at least 5 fatalities.  The Interstate between here and Baton Rough had to be shut down twice due to accidents.  There were a lot of 18 wheelers involved also.  There seems to be a lot more accidents on the weekends that there are festivals in the area.  Always lots of drinking and then they get on the roads and drive home. Or at least, attempt to drive home.  Some make it, some don't.

.

Holly.........I do agree with you......everyday is a great day if we just learn how to appreciate it.  There is always something good to be found, especially when you wake up thanking the Lord for the new day, and the opportunity to once again experience the greatness of His love and sharing it with all those that you come in contact with.  Make it a great day and be blessed.

.

Kaya.......thanks for the big hug, sending you a hug in return. May your day filled with the warmth of love from all those close to you.

Getting ready for Home Heath Care to visit, will try to get back later.

.....a saying that I saw earlier today.So true.I do not observe traditional holidays,but I do try to,in some way,make a holiday each day.Surely there is something to celebrate.....the good weather,the fact that we are loved,the fact that eternal salvation is available to us,the fact that God is available to us.A celebration can be elaborate,but it need not be.A cup of coffee,(or whatever you like),as you watch the sunrise,or your flowers,or even just as you close your eyes and picture what it is that makes you happy if you are unable to go there.A moment with a friend or loved one.A concert.A song on your music player.A movie.Find something to enjoy each day,to make it a celebration.Then thank God for these things.This makes life worth living,even if the rest of your day is difficult.Don't wait for a certain time or event or until you can afford something expensive or have the energy to do something elaborate.Celebrate now,enjoy the beauty and simplicity that is life.Tomorrow is not promised,so do it now,make peace with Almighty now.Say those kind things and do those kind things to your loved ones now,however simple they may seem,do it.I hope that you all overstand,and implement this simple but profound truth.You will be really living at that point.

LOVE AND HUGS TO YOU,PRAISES TO ALMIGHTY.

Blue skies......nothing but blue skies........never saw the sun, shining so bright, la la la la........how can anybody not be happy with weather like this?????

.

Holly..........that sure is a colorful mass of butterflies but it's beautiful.  Different also.  I listened to your link for the music and enjoyed the song you write the lyrics to.  Nice praise and worship song.  I also thank you for translating the unfamiliar language for us.  That is a big help to understanding.

.

Kaya......I am not familiar with any passage in the Bible that tells us Jesus still prayes for us today.  He is sitting at the right hand of God, He is our High Priest and when the Devil appears before God to put blame on us, our Lord and Saviour is there to intercede for us and tell the Father that He has already paid the price for that sin and it can not be held against us now.  You must also remember that our Lord prayed to the Father the night before He was arrested.  He asked the Father to please let that cup of death pass away from Him, but.........if the Father willed, He would accept it.  If God did not answer ALL of the prayers for His one and only begotten Son, why should we expect every one of our prayers to be answered the way we want them to be?????  There will be times when God will say no to our pleas because in His infinite wisdom, He knows what is best for us.  There will be other times when He will say, Not Now!!!!!  We just have to wait it out and be patient, and never lose faith.  God will answer prayer so that He may be glorified through the Son.  This old world can be most overwhelming much of the time, and there are many times when we all want to throw in the towel and go to be with Him.  Unfortunately for us, He is not yet ready for us.  He has a course that we must run, an assigned job that we mus do, before He will be ready for us.  The longer you delay in running off course or on your own chosen path, or doing that which was not assigned to you, the longer it will take you to finish the race.  Please try not to be discouraged, lift your head up high, take a deep breath, and ask the Lord to strengthen you and set you back on course that you may be in His will and feel the warmth of His love and the ease of His mercy upon you.  Whenever we hit a snag, we all need help to smooth things over again.  I'll say an extra prayer for you too.

.

May the Lord guide us in all our thoughts, words, and deeds and continue to keep us all safe in His loving care.

Good morning,everyone.I hope that you enjoy the pic as much as I have.I have been told that the butterfly has at least 3 symbolic meanings:

3.A FREE SPIRIT.

Enjoying another re-run of yesterday, blue sky and lots of sunshine.  Beautiful festival weather.  The Crayfish Festival didn't shut down the dancing and carnival rides until mid-night last night.  Don't know what time they will start up again today.  Probably as soon as church lets out.  

.

Michael........when we first came to Lafayette, one of our neighbors invited us to a crayfish boil.  I wouldn't touch one so our neighbor peeled one for me.  I didn't like it either.  I ate hot dogs with the kids.  There is a lot of work involved in eating crayfish for the little amount of meat you get from each one.  Not worth it to me.  They can have their Cajun Caviar, I want no part of it.

.

Holly.........So glad you enjoyed the concert, dinner afterward was a nice finishing touch to a night out on the town.  Hope that all goes well for you tonight and that you get in to see the Raggae bands play.  

.

Justice.......you are right about the kids today having a mouth taken right out of the gutter.  The reason nobody bats an eye anymore is because it's expected behavior.   They have picked up the ways of the devil from their parents.......lacking in any moral training at all.

.

May the Lord continue to provide for the needs of His children and keep us all safe from harm.

No clouds this morning, it's clear sailing all day.  I didn't see any severe weather on the map for today so it will be a good day for the destuction crews to get busy helping those who are starting over again.  Our prayers continue to go out for them.  There are several places here that are collecting money, clothing, furniture, dishes, cookware, and many other items to send to Arkansas and Mississippi.  I pray that other states will adopt some of these towns and send help as well.

.

Holly........hoping you enjoy your day off and have a wonderful time tonight at the concert.  Maybe you will be able to see the raggae bands tomorrow also.  You should have been down here last week for the Festival International.  Lots of raggae going on there.  

.

This weekend is a festival of a much different kind.  It is the Crawfish Festival.  Here are some pics of my granddaughters eating crawfish when they came down last weekend.

Tori appears to dislike touching them also.  Not all of her fingers are busy.

.

You sure won't catch me eating those mudbugs.  In Arkansas we used them for fishing bait.  Down here they pay huge prices and call it a feast.  I don't even like touching them.

.

Hope everyone has a joyful weekend.  May the Lord continue to keep us all safe from harm and provide for the individual needs of His children.

Cloudy skies but still a beautiful day.  The strangest thing happened to me this morning.  At exactly 7:00 a.m. I was awakened to the most beautiful Native American flute music you can imagine.  It lasted 1/2 hour and then just stopped.  Teresa didn't hear it, Ray said he couldn't hear it, they both think I'm nuts.  Ray thinks it was my ancestors calling me to the happy hunting grounds.  Of course he was joking when he said that.  

.

Kaya........hope that you have a pleasant day with no upsets at your work today.  I have good news to share with you.  I surpassed my 12 on Simon and set a new record of 16 now. Not bad for this old lady, even if I do say so myself.  

.

Holly.......love your story about the devil providing groceries for the poor woman.  That was a good one.  Hope I get a chance to tell it to somebody before it leaves my memory. LOL.  Nothing stays around very long these days.  

.

Nance........hope you are being blessed with the rain you need but not too much.

.

Michael......appears on the weather map today that you might be getting a little wet also, but at least no storms showed up in your area.  Florida is still getting bad rains and flooding.  They still need our prayers along with all the others hit by that weather system.

.

May the Lord guide all of us in our thoughts, words and deeds and continue to keep us safe from all harm.

A very poor woman called a
Christian radio station asking for
help. A bad, evil man who was
listening to this radio program
decided to make something out
of it.

He got her address, called his
secretary and ordered her to
buy
food and take to the woman with
the following instruction.,
"when the woman asks who sent the food, tell her that its from
the
devil.''
When she arrived, the woman
was so
happy and she started putting the
food inside.
The Secretary asked her, ''don't
you want to know who sent the
food''??
The woman answered. ''NO , it doesn't matter, because when
GOD orders, even the devil
obeys."
The secretary broke into tears.

* Now, READ this CAREFULLY*
You are a divine project, so shall
God accomplish whatever that
concerns you.
That thing in your life that seems
impossible, shall be possible. God will take you to a greater
height, God is opening your book
of Remembrance, because you
are
next inline to be favoured
in Jesus Christ name.

Blue sky and sunshine again, praise God from Whom all blessings flow.  Continuing to pray for all of the families across our nation affected by the storms.

.

Michael........I also believe that we are in the last days. Matthew 24:6 says, "and ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet."  This is true because we have lived all our lives with wars and rumours of wars, and yet we are still here.  Verse 7 says, "For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places."  This is also happening, more frequently now than ever before.  Then we read in verse 8, "All these are the beginning of sorrows."...........only the beginning????? The beginning for who?????  All of these verses are words spoken by our Lord to His disciples concerning Israel, not the Church.  After we are removed from the earth, caught up to meet the Lord in the air, Israel will be left to endure the tribulation and all of these predictions will be manifest with them, leading up to their last days.  We are currently in the Last Days of the Church.  It is the general feeling among Christians that the time is short and the days are few.  We must keep busy gathering every lost soul we can for the Lord.  Satan is working fast and furious to prevent us from moving in on the multitudes he has claimed for himself, but if there is just one more that can be shown the truth and put upon the path of salvation, then we must be busy looking for that one lost soul.  

.

Gabra........I liked your story.  We should never fail to let those we love know exactly how we feel, not only in our words, but by our actions as well.  Sometimes the things we do say more than words can express.  

.

Holly.........Your little creek and waterfall sound so peaceful, a wonderful way to prepare yourself mentally and emotionally for your day's work.  

.

Nance........Thank you again for all the different learning tools you are posting for us to expand our knowledge.  It is really a blessing and I for one appreciate it more than I can say.  Care2 will not let me give you that many stars at one time and I am not online enough hours to send you one for each post.  Just know that I would send you a bushel basket daily if I could.

.

May the Lord comfort and heal those that are suffering and continue to provide for the needs of His children.  May He keep each of us safe in His loving and merciful care.

Good morning,Michael.I hope that you are well this morning.

We need to pray for the tornado victims.If anyone wants to,and is able,I believe that an organization called Samaratin's Pusre is providing relief,and at the same time sharing Jesus with them.You can google the name of the organization to get contact info,and whatever else you desire.Whether or not we are able or want to,we can all give our prayers.

It was beautiful out this morning.I found a great place to pray when I leave the bus before I have to walk to my job,there is a waterfall and a creek.Nice place to have my coffee,watch the sunrise,relax.Try to have the right attitude to start my day.

Have a great day,everyone.Hugs to you all,praises to Almighty One.

Good Morning Everyone

I hope all is well. We pray for all the family's that has been affected out by the tornadoes.
I was reading 35 deaths so far. Its sad to see all the earth quakes, tornadoes, floods and wild fires.

Are we in the Last Days?
There can be no doubt that we are living in the last days. End time events are happening all around us. When you compare end times Bible prophecy to what has happened in the earth's history and what is happening around the world today, then we can have no doubt that we are living in the last days. In this page we will take a look at what kind of people will be living in the last days, what will they be like. Paul gives us a very clear answer:

Just before Jesus return He continued by say, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. And there shall be signs in the sun and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; mens hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. (Luke 21 v.10-11, 25-26)
