In checking over the threads for tomorrow, it came to my attention that I never posted here this morning and it's almost my bedtime now.
Linda.......happy to see you made it in one more time for the month. I have seen on the weather channel where nature was not too kind in your area. You were in line or very close to some bad storms again today. We will be waiting for your visits this next month. Hopefully the weather will be kinder to all our members. Our highs are near and around 90 to 92 but the heat index is over 100 these days. The humidity is very high and the dew point is also high. Makes for very heavy and muggy conditions.
Holly........our youngest granddaughter, Tori, plays the ukelele. Not one of my favorite instruments either but since it's her, we listen and ooo and aahhhh over it when she finally puts it down. LOL. On a campout like that I would much rather hear the Indian flute filling the woods with it's mellow, sweet sounds......but off in a distance, not too close. It's comforting to know there are others nearby in case something should go wrong.
Michael.........I have been praying for all of you and especially concerning your foster boys. I'm sorry to hear that you are having trouble again. Can't be good for influence on Luc. Will continue to keep you in my prayers daily.
Gabra.......I have spent nearly this whole day fighting the Photobucket glitches and now Care2 has messed me up and I can't finish changing out the group billboard. I've gone to Feedback and Suggestions and filed my complaint, or issue, and hopefully they will come up with something to help me be able to post the billboard again. I did manage to get the calendar changed before if messed up on me. Thank the Lord for that much. Hope your day has been smoother and less frustrating than mine.
May the Lord guide us in all our ways through this new month and keep us all safe in His loving care.
Can't believe this is the last day of June and the year is nearly half over already. Had a real intense thunderstorm about a couple weeks ago. Had barely made it home when the skies darkened. Then high winds were whipping the trees and other stuff around. Rain was coming down really heavy, plus the wind was blowing it sideways. Then they had the sirens going off. Later learned someone had sited a tornado the next county over. So far we haven't had much of a summer. A lot of cool and/or rainy days.
Had planned to come to the library last wed and spend some time online since it was my day off.
However, ended up having to run some errands and take care of some other stuff. Next month I will try to do better with visiting the group more often than once or twice a month.
Good morning,everyone...what is left of it.Have a beautiful day.Don't overwork yourself.Lively up yourself,and don't leave no dread,keep doing your best for God.This is for anyone who wants one today.
Good morning,everyone.Michael,I said a prayer about that concern,ok.I hope that all works out.Yes,Jeanette,camping with William was very relaxing.It was a beautiful place.At night some guy was outside his tent playing his ukelele.William wanted to break it on the guys head,but I talked him into ignoring it.It did not bother me.Men can be amusing at times.There was a bice waterfall there,you can swin too.We picked berries and wild edibles plants,as we know these are not full of GMO's,and some actually have medicinal purposes.Almighty is a wonderful artist and provider.Nance,still love your posts.Kaya,that pic of Jesus is beautiful,such a peaceful look on his face.Beautiful Saviour.Have a great week,everyone.Almighty be praised forever.
Good morning everyone.
I hope everyone is doing ok.
I really could use prayers right now concerning my foster boys.
The Lord knows all about it.
I have been fasting and praying for 8 days. The Lord has giving me relief and I think everything is going to be ok.
God bless you all.
Hoping your Lord's Day is as beautiful as ours in the south, abundant sunshine to go around for everyone.
Carol.......Happy to see you posting again today, have been missing you. Your state is in line for some more severe weather, hope it's not in your area. Have been saying prayers for you. Love your new photo, who is that precious child?
Nance........Thank you for your addition to your thread this morning. I sat here for a good while enjoying the Israeli music. I really love their rhythm and everything else about it......far more than our own music. That was a nice way to start off my day. Hope you have a wonderful celebration for Canada Day. Enjoy!!!
Holly.......That little get-away was good for you and William, you needed that after your long and extremely cold winter and all the trials that came along with it. Now it's time to look up, get refreshed and enjoy the many blessings that are tumbling out of the mess of the past. Time to smile again, all is right with the Lord. Maybe one of these days the world will learn how to catch up. Glad to hear Joshua now has a place of his own. That is truly a blessing for all of you. I don't envy anybody having to move though. That is a chore beyond all chores. I would rather sit down and die before having to go through that again. I pray my next move will be to the Father's house. It's already furnished and I won't have to pack for that one. Don't wear yourself out too much, it's a long time before your next day off and a chance to get rested again.
May the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ receive all the honor and glory and praises for all the blessings He has given to us. May He continue to keep us all safe in His loving and merciful care.
Refreshments,anyone? :) I had a relaxing,refreshing day yesterday,then today back to work.After I am taking Jasmine to get groceries,helping Joshua move to his new apt,and hopefully visit Jeriqua.Busy day.Love you ,praise to Almighty.
Celebrating with the festivities of Canada Day July 1st and along with our friends to the South USA~July 4th~ Independence Day
Journey mercies as you travel
Hello,everyone.We camped overnight,came back home this afternoon.Bac to work tomorrow for us both.The woods and the waterfall are absolutely beautiful,we will be doing this again.Love and hugs to you all,praises to Almighty.
Cloudy again today and looking like rain. We had one little short shower yesterday about supper time. Nothing to brag about but still appreciative of God's blessings upon the earth.
Holly........Sounds like you and William will have an exciting weekend just relaxing and enjoying nature and one another. Hope you plan on doing a little fishing and catch your own food to eat. I love to smell food cooking on an open camp fire. Love to eat it too. Something about nature that stirs up the appitite.
Kaya......Thank you for the weekend wishes, hope that yours is equally as blessed.
May the Lord provide for our individual needs, guide us in all our ways and keep us safe from all harm.
Good morning,everyone.I thank you again for prayers,and I thank God for helping me with this car thing.Kaya,we love you too.Love your pics this morning,I hope that you all enjoy mine.After work today,William and I ae taking the tent and going camping.Looking forward to it.I agree with Kaya about how special you are.You truly are a gift from Almighty.I send praises to HIM,and hugs to all of you.Have a great day.
i WISH ALL OF YOU A HAPPY WEEKEND.i HOPE THAT YOU ALL KNOW HOW SPECIAL ALL OF YOU ARE.lOVE YOU ALL VERY MUCH.
"THANK YOU ALMIGHTY FOR SAVING MY SOUL.THANK YOU,JEHOVAH,FOR MAKING ME WHOLE.THANK YOU YESHUA FOR GIVING TO ME,YOUR GREAT SALVATION,FOR WE IT IS FREE."
Hello,Michael.Hope you and your sweet family are well.Hi,Kaya.Gabby,Kaya's dog is nice to me :) He only bit them,lol.He must like their butts and not mine,lol! Hi,Jenette.Glad your weather is nice.I am feeling a little better today.I begin working next week.First time since I had the baby,I was going to go back the next week,but I was sent home.Jenette,is your home care any better?I hope you get it worked out.Thanks to all of you for all you do.Week end is coming.Be happy.Stole Holly's lion pic.lol....
Hello.Love the dog,Holly.Most likey nicer than Kaya's dog,who bit her ,and bit Lorenzo.I can not have a dog,landlord will not allow it. I have a cat named Cedella.Not suppose to have her,but she hides if the landlord comes,just like my kids,hahahaha,I hope everyone is ok.Love and hugs and all.
We did not receive the predicted rainfall yesterday, just a few moments of light sprinkle and it was all over. Today was supposed to be more of the same but we currently enjoy sunshine weaving in and out of lots of clouds floating by.
Holly........I'm thrilled for you to be able to take your place on the roads again in your own vehicle. What a relief and blessing for your family. Tell Jeriqua that I said "thank you" for giving that homeless baby a home. It would only take a few minutes to fall in love with Kuda. He has such beautiful markings and looks like a wonderful family member.
Michael........enjoy the cool while it's there. The hottest months are yet to come. I'm always praying for a mild summer to be followed by a mild winter. I seldom get it but who known, this might be the year. How is the adoption coming along? Should be about time to celebrate the beginning of a long awaited event in your family. It's also about time for the arrival of another healthy boy to make his appearance into your family. Keeping all of you in prayer.
Kaya........(big smile).......how right you are and I join with you in prayer that Jeriqua will submit to the Lord and allow Him to rescue her. You reminded me of a song we used to sing in church.....Rescue the Perishing, care for the dying, snatch them in pity from sin and the grave; weep o're the erring one, lift up the fallen, tell them of Jesus, the mighty one to save. Chorus: Rescue the Perishing; care for the dying, Jesus is merciful, Jesus will save.
May the Lord provide for all our needs, guide us in all our ways and keep us all safe from harm.
Holly she is just like you,she wants to rescue every thing.Now,if she just let ALMIGHTY rescue her? Keep on praying.Hi,Michael,how are you?Love you all so,so,so,so much,I hope you know.
Good morning everyone.
Its cooled off hear the last two days.
Rain and more weeds to cut. Better than to dry.
Good morning,everyone.I want to tell you all who prayed about my car,"thank you."I also want to tell Almighty "thank you".HE answered this prayer,our prayers for Luis,and our prayers for Ray....So HE is answering prayers.He is not obligated to,HE does so because He is good.Now,keep praying for everyone's requests in the prayer request section,lots of miracles needed.This is my daufgter Jeriqua's dog Koda.She rescued him from Craigslist free ad.Have a beautiful day,everyone.Hugs.
Yesterday's overcast turned into a day of liquid sunshine. We had 4 separate and individual thunderstorms fairly evenly spaced throughout the whole day. They predicted that today would be the better chance of thunderstorms so we will just have to wait and see. So far just cloudy and lacking any hint of seeing the sun.
Holly.........wishing you good luck on your doctors appointment and on finalizing the details to get your car legally on the roads. Have said prayers for you and yours.
Nance........Boy, you are so right. I had not paid much attention to the dates but this month has flown by in a big hurry. Hard to believe that next week we will be in July already.
Justice.........swimming sounds like a perfect way to spend a summer day. I know I did a lot of that at your age. Enjoy yourself but protect yourself from the suns rays too.
My home health nurse should be here within the next 30 minutes so must go get settled and calmed before she arrives.
May the Lord watch over all of us and keep us safe in His loving care.
Good morning,everyone.I have only a part day of work today,as I have a DR. appointment,and I need to go to DMV....PLEEEAAASSSEEE....pray that I can get my car on the road TODAY,with no stress or complications! Thanks.I hope that all of you have a fantastic day.Love and hugs to you,praisesd to ALMIGHTY.
Hello~Justice, Jeanette & Friends
This month is going so fast....next Tuesday is Canada's Birthday~July 1st~ a few days later our neighbors to the south USA celebrate ~July 4th~
Have a good nite~
Hi.I am ok.Hi everyone.Have a beautiful night,I want to go swimming.I hate smelling like baby spit up.Love you.I pray for all of you.Jeanette,the song kaya posted,it just shows we fight every day until Almighty Kingdome is here,that is all.
Sunshine and partly cloudy down south. It stayed cloudy all day yesterday and missed a good chance to rain but stayed dry in spite of it all. There is no rain forcast for today either, but tomorrow and Thursday is another story. We shall see what they bring when they get here.
Deitra.......glad to see you posting with us and allowing us to become better acquainted with you. Congratulations on your twin grandchildren. Are they grandsons or granddaughters? We have a thread dedicated to family photos. As soon as you get some photos of the babies, please share them with us. We would love to see them. We have lots of new borns to celebrate in this small group. Actually we are a very large group but only a small handful are active and openly participate at this time.
Kaya and Holly........thanks for helping me to welcome Deitra to the group. Kaya......hope you have a blessed day. Holly........ will be praying for you to obtain all that is necessary to get you back on the road again with your new car. That will be such a time saver and convenience that you have been deprived of for a good while.
Carol......Linda......Florika......Carla.......Ivonne.......and all you guys out there that lurk and read but don't post, you are all missed and we would love to hear from you.
May the Lord lead us in all things and continue to keep us safe from harm.
Hi Kaya! In agreement with you Holly about your car! Peace
EVERY ONE.lOVE YOU ALL.
Hello,Deitra.Happy to have you.Hello,everyone,happy for all that come in today.Continue to pray for one another,it is important.Pray that tomorrow I am able to finish the process of getting my car registered and on the road with no stress or problems,as this will be a help to many.Thanks.I send love and hugs to all of you,and praises to Almighty.
Hello everyone, I'm new to the group but I wanted to share that I have been blessed again with two new additions to the family. My daughter delivered twins earlier today, both over 6 pounds and quite healthy. Praise God!
Also, I try not to post too much or respond to everything because I come off as hard or harsh and that is not my intention at all. I do believe, though, that kid gloves need to come off because they are not a part of our arsenal and satan is not playing-- not even a little bit. I love to laugh and have fun in the spirit but I don't play with satan at all. I try to be aware of and conscientious about what I let come from my mouth because we have what we speak and I'm learning not to speak death, lack, sickness, etc. So, if I say something about it, it's not you I'm rebuking, it's satan because I believe that WE are the winners here and I celebrate ALL victories --sometimes quite loudly! lol Believing Peace is with you!
Hello Gabra.......So glad you came to group today. We must have been posting at the same time. Why are you sorry about JJ? What has happened to her? Hope all if well with you and yours. Hoping that you have a great week.
Hi,Holly and Michael.Good you are here.Hi Rahab.Sorry about JJ,please keep me posted.Hello,to anyone else who comes in today.Thanks for this group,and the help you give,as well as the friendship.If I can be of help in some way,I am more than happy.
Cloudy and heavy overcast here on the Gulf coast. We are under the influence of a large high pressure and scattered showers are circling around Louisiana. We aren't due to get them until about Wednesday and Thursday. I was expecting sunshine until then. Gerry must be getting wet today in Texas though.
Michael........At least with the low humidity it won't feel as hot. Our humidity has been in the 80's lately. At least it was yesterday, haven't checked it yet today. Sometimes when the humidity and the dewpoint are both up high, it feels like you could cut through the air with a knife, it's so thick. How is the paper-work coming along with the adoption? It should be final most anytime now.
Rahab.......Thank you for the love, just know that it is returned to you as well. I am waiting as patiently as I can for the Zion Train, I've had my reservation for a long time now. Hoping we all get seats close together. I feel like it's really close now and I'm ready.
Holly........Sorry you only had the one day off for the weekend, but the two of you seem to be blessed in the time you spend with one another. Bet you had a good time playing with the boys for a while. Mason must be growing visably by now. Could you see if he is bigger now? Babies are so precious and I love them all. There are days when I wish I had about 4 more. Then I look back over our younger days and realize that we couldn't have cared for more than we had, we struggled to afford the two God loaned to us.
Please check the prayer request thread frequently and add the new requests to your personal prayer list. Ivonne's husband is back in the hospital. We need to remember his especially during this time of urgency with his condition.
May the Lord guide us in all our ways and prepare us for this new week ahead of us. May He continue to keep us all safe from harm.

Good morning,everyone.I hope that you were able to relax and enjoy yourself this weekend,and refuel for the week.I went out with William most of the day on Saturday.Sunday we both ere required to return to work.I went to visit Mason and Jibril so that Jasmine and Israel could do some shopping.Beautiful babies.Love and hugs to all of you,praises to Almighty.

I wish for all of you today,PEACE IN HEART AND MIND,HAPPINESS DESPITE CIRCUMSTANCES AND SURROUNDINGS,THAT YOU CAN FEEL THE UNCONDITIONAL LOVE OF ALMIGHTY WHEN YOU FEEL ALL ALONE,ETERNAL SALVATION,AND THAT YOU ALL KNOW THAT EVEN IF I CAN NOT PHYSICALLY WRAP MY ARMS AROUND YOU,THAT I-LOVE EMBACE YOU EVEN FROM HERE.No negativity,Zion Train is coming our way,Yeshua is returning soon.
Good morning everyone.
Jeanette Its been hot and I am trying to stay out of the sun in the hottest part of the day.
The last two days has been hot and not much humidity.
I pray the good Lord will bless you all.
Morn'n~Gabra, Holly, Jeanette and friends~
Indeed~Jeanette~ 'tis so sweet~ every day with Jesus~lovely ....
Good morning,everyone.Enjoying some music and coffee before I have to go to work today.Skatelites and some other good stuff.Ivonne,I prayed for Luis,let us know how is he,ok.I send love and hugs to all of you,I send praises to ALMIGHTY.Be blessed,and,as Gabby has so wisely said,bless Him back.
This post was modified from its original form on 22 Jun, 4:59
Thank you,JJ and Jeanette,this is very helpful. It is difficult to break old hsbits,especially when your life is insecure.I love you guys,my only real friends.I don't act like it,but I love God too.Have a great day,may God bless you,and remember to bless HIM as well.
This post was modified from its original form on 22 Jun, 4:12
Hope this find all of you as great as our day has begun. It is so pretty with gobs of sunshine all over the place and big black shadows of the trees inching their way ever so slowly across the ground like the sand moves through an hour glass.
Nance.......I want to thank you for your devotional today and the video on the music thread to accompany it. It really touched me and reminded me that there is no better place to be than at the feet of Jesus.
Gabra........Stop and think about this new change in your life. Before you were a dancer, doing your own thing, there was no need for anybody to dictate your moves to you. Now you are under the direction of an employer that is in authority. Now consider your life without Christ......you didn't have to listen to anyone to tell you what to do, sin just came natural and you went about doing what pleased you. Now that you are a child of God, you must listen to Him as He speaks to you through the Holy Spirit within you. This lady that drives you crazy is helping you to learn the art of listening.......following direction.......and yielding to an authority other than ourselves. When you feel yourself going bonkers, just stop and say "thank you Lord, for this job and for this lesson that I must learn." It will all work out for the good, and I will be praying for patience for you. Now that you are taking our orders, I would like an orange smoothie, thank you!
Justice........you do not owe me an apology, I knew you were just joshing around with me and I was just dishing it back to you. It was all in fun. If we don't make light of our stress, then we are really in trouble. I do have good news that was splashed all over me yesterday afternoon. The lady in charge of making the schedules for the nurses is GONE. Too many complaints about her. The wonder and sweet and intelligent lady that had that position before will be returning Monday. I'm not supposed to know that yet but it was the best medicine I could have received. It will take her some time to get things back into proper order and undo all that the "ding-bat" messed up, but there is now light at the end of the tunnel. Praise God from Whom all blessings flow. Now if we could only solve your situation as easily. It is far more serious. I am still praying daily for your weakness to be replaced by strength and that they will find the source of all of this. It concerns me greatly. You have to get healthy for those babies, they need you to be around to raise them to be responsible, God loving adults.
Linda........What a pleasant surprise to see you here again. I have been wondering what had happened to you. It is now understandable why you haven't been coming to visit though. With your church having VBS in the evenings, it gives you a chance to participate and help out without it interfering with your work. I have been watching about the storms in your area. Glad you were not hit too hard like some of the places to the west of you. Hope you will be able to make it back to visit again soon.
Holly.......Hope you have a good time and relaxing visit to the lake. You need to pack a picnic basket and just spend the day enjoying nature and all the gifts and blessings God has given for our pleasure.
May God keep us all safe and bless us with our needs as He sees fitting for us.
Good morning.Hi,Linda.Really glad to see you here.Hello,everyone.Jeanette,so sorry you still are having problems with your home health care.I really hope that they will straighten that out for you soon.I am waiting to go out today with William,not sure where today.Hoping to go to the lake or something.I hope that you all have a happy,stress free,relaxing weekend.
Good afternoon everyone. Can't believe I haven't visited the group yet this month. I thought I had at least once, but I guess not. Had an intense thunderstorm come through my area late evening yesterday-Thursday. Thankfully I was already inside my apt by then.
I've been having to go in at 7am to work this past couple weeks. Have to get up at 5am to get ready and walk to the bus stop, been pretty tired by the time I get home.
This week my church is doing vacation bible school. We've been having it in the evening because a couple of other churches are doing their VBS during the day. I've been helping out all week, coming to the church right from work. So by the time I get home, I just want to go to bed. Got to go now, but hope to stop by soon.
Hello every one. How are you?
Jeanette,I am sorry, I should not be joking about a thing that causes you stress.I apologize.At times,a sense of humor will help,other time it makes it worse.I hope that every thing gets worked out for you in this regard.
Kaya,that tweety bird looks and acts just like YOU! This is so amusing,I guess you are the model for this cartoon,because the attitude,right down to the facial expression,is SOOOO you! Haha!
Michael,happy to see you.How you and your family? Wear sun bloking,and be hydrated,ok.
Hello,Nance,thannk you for some more really cute graphics.You pick nice ones.
Gabby,God does not act like that.If a bad thing happens,it is the devils,or it is a direct result of a thing you did,dependant on what you are referring to.But even then,it is not a rejection if you asked to be forgive,and you are trying not to now.
You know,I really do not want to feel weak,because it makes my usefulness limited.But I know what is normal fealing for me,something is wrong.The supplements do not work.
I do look forward to Reggae on the River,their line up is always 2nd to none.Music is my life line.
Have a great day,and week end.You all are loved,by Almighty,and by me.
Good afternoon,everyone.I hope you get to have some fun this weekend.I know that I am relieved that it is coming.This WOMAN that hired me here,she drives me crazy!Not complaing too badly,I have work.She is here to teach me patience,I THINK. Hey,if a bad thing happens,it does not mean that God rejects you,right?I don't like thoughts that torment me at times.Hey! Why don't all of you come over and we can make smoothies.This lady got a smoothie machine here. What kind do you want?Hahaha..Love you all.Later.Pray always,not just to tell HIM that you want something.
Partly cloudy and off and on sunshine on the Gulf coasts. Going to be another hot one today with highs again in the 90's. As long as I can stay indoors with the AC, I'm doing good. The humidity is also high, best reason ever to stay inside.
Michael........The weather channel said that your area would be hot and the heat index would really be high, like upper 90's. Hope that you will use all the protection you can find if you go out to work in the garden or mow the grass. That much sun is not good for you or for your skin cancers. Will be praying for you.
Kaya.......Okay.......I'm sending you a hug, but my goodness, you sure are being sassy today. LOL. You sound as cranky as me and you are only half my age.
Justice........Glad to see you so amused at my "old lady" rantings. It rather stresses me out and not funny at the time it is happening. Guess hind sight could find it a little bit worth chuckling over. I did call the office again yesterday afternoon and let them know that I was not impressed with this new nurse and to only send her when there was nobody else to send. I again requested Lorissa to be my regular nurse. We shall see what happens from here. When is Raggae on the River going to be? Sounds like a fun event to go to.
Holly........I'm guessing that you had a wonderful time last night at the concert. That is nice that you and William will have something to look forward to every week.
Rahab........glad you could stop by, even if just for a short "hello" to everybody.
Nance.....Carol.....Linda.....Florika.....and all of our other members that are missing in action........you are missed and we would like to see you with us too.
May the Lord continue to provide for our needs and keep us all safe from harm.
I hope everyone is doing ok.
It is hot outside in the 90s hear.
God bless everyone.
HELLO BEAUTIFUL FAMILY!
Haha.Jeanette,you remind me of my mama,sounds like you are about to get the belt out if that lady mess with you.Haha,you are so funny,you make my whole day! How are you and you family? How are you,Michael,Nance,Carol,Holly,and every one?Holly,enjoy your concert.I am hoping to attend Reggae on the River this year,them line up is fantastic!Hey,all you,have a day that is as beautiful as you are.My husbond wants to know why I like people I never met.I told him I never meet you in the physical,that is all.Hugs.
A beautiful Caribbean sunrise to share with you,enjoy it. :) Enjoying a nice reggae program on the radio at my work today.Tonight William and I are going to a concert.In our city,there is a free outdoor concert on Thursday nights during the summer,they have both local and well know artists,as well as a variety of genres,so whatever music you like,they will most likely have it.I hope that all of you have a produtive and happy day,no stress.Jeanette,I hope that you obtain more stability in your home health care.I send love and hugs to you all,and praises to ALMIGHTY!
This has been one of those ????? mornings. Woke up to blue sky and sunshine, shortly thereafter looked out and it was raining, now we have blue sky and sunshine again. This has been equally as confusing with home health care. The lady that was messing up everybody's schedule got fired and they have a new one this week. Now it's her turn to mess things up again. I had another new nurse today that I've never seen before. I just don't understand why they can't leave the assignments alone and let us old timers be. This one made me do things that I haven't had to do in the 3 years I've used this company. Also, when she came in she froze at the sight of our two doggies and announced that they are supposed to be confined. I told her they live her, they have never bothered anyone in the 3 years that company has been coming here and they would not bother her either. Sorry nursey, my turf, play by my rules. So now you see the truth about me........I'm just a cranky old lady.
As all of you probably noticed, the timeline only stay fixed for about a half day. Beginning to wonder if they will ever get this network back to working like it should.
It's lunch time now so will go see what's going on in the kitchen.
May the Lord guide each of us in our thoughts, words, and deeds and continue to keep us all safe in His loving and merciful care.
Good morning,everyone.I want you to know that....
Have a wonderful day.Almighty be praised.
Good Day~ Friends
Sunshine and blessings to all
Have a beautiful evening,every one.
I am trying to do all that needs to be done.I have my music,it calms me.God's gift of music....I give HIM HIS gift back if my worship is set to riddim (rythym). I do not act like it,but I love HIM.Play the music,and "forget you troubles and dance.Forget your sickness and dance.Forget your sickness and dance." (BOB MARLEY).Painting and sculpting as well,if I have the time.GOD,HIM creative.WE are made in HIS image,so it soothes us,to be creative.You all know that I love you.HE loves you.
Another beautiful day here in the south, but my heart goes out to those residents of Nebraska that have taken a double hit by twin twisters. I didn't know that kind of weather was forcast since I hadn't watched the weather channel for a day or so. We need to be in prayer for all those who were in the path of those storms.
Carol........I immediately checked the map and saw that Pilger was a good distance to your NW. Hopefully you were kept safe and untouched by any of that system.
Linda........The storms moved in your direction as well, can only hope and pray that you were also kept safe and unharmed. Hoping to hear from you again soon.
Gabra.......How wonderful that you have found a new job in the market. I'm so proud of you for turning your life around and desiring to live for the Lord. Your fish and cornbread sounds yummy, but I had to look up ackee, had no idea what it was. I believe I will pass on that thank you. LOL. Believe me, if we lived close, I would come eat with you. Thanks for thinking of all of us though.
Kaya........What pretty graphics this morning. Glad to see you with us today also.
Holly........That sure is a strange looking tree. Is it called a "musical" tree? The more I looked at it and thought about it, I found myself wondering if maybe the wind could move the strings and make music in the air. What a wild imagination we sometimes find ourselves entertaining. LOL
Justice.......As if you don't have enough worries of your own, you still find time to worry about me? Thank you for the prayers. I am doing fine, physically. I will never get any better but I'm hanging in there and still kicking. I don't raise as much dust as I used to but still trucking along. I have had an upset with another person that hurt my feelings pretty deeply, but in time I will get over that also. It was no one in Care2 so put those thoughts away. Thanks again for the prayers, the Lord knows I need them.
Home health just arrived and I have to go get a shower and clean up for the day.
May the Lord bless each of us with the provisions we need and keep us safe from all harm.
HI. Jeanette,I feel like some thing is wrong? I do not know why do I feel this,but I sayed a prayer for you.Hope you are ok.I hope every one is ok.Love hugs blessings.Jehovah is Almighty,He is capable of all things.
Just wanted to say hello,I am making salt fish,corn bread,and ackee!want some?Hugs.Have a different job in the market on the other street.Not as much money,but what is the price for peace of mind.I wish you can all come and eat with me.God bless you.
Partly cloudy and hot is the menu for today in the South. Now that summer is upon us, guess that might be the menu for all of us. I am so elated this morning to see that the time line is showing signs of working again. Lets hope it stays that way. Maybe now more members will feel like posting with us again. Less confusion anyway.
Holly........Congratulations, what a blessing to receive a message like that from Jeriqua. We never know what is going on in those minds of our children and wonder if they really have a clue about their being. Jeriqua not only has that insight, she respects you and loves you enough to express it.
Nance........I have been following you around the threads this morning and enjoying each and every post you have made. The Names of the Bible thread was especially interesting to me, I learned something from it about Phillip the Greek. That was also my dad's middle name was Phillip so that may have had a pull on my interest.
Kaya........and everyone that posted Father's Day messages, thank you for such a great selection of wishes. Hope all of the fathers had a joyful day with their family and loved ones.
Rahab........hello and happy to see you in group today. One day real soon when I'm feeling stronger, we need to have a long talk. I want to get to know you better.
May the Lord guide us in all our thoughts, words, and deeds and continue to protect us from all harm.
Hello.Holly,what she wrote is beautiful.She may have it more together than you think.I used my butterfly credits to protect 1,000 ft. of rain forest.Just as the trees pull out some of the pollution,the BLOOD OF ALMIGHTY GOD SON purifies the pollution from our wrondoing,thank HIM for it.I love you all.
Good morning family and friends.I hope that you had a peaceful,relaxing weekend,and a happy father's day.I hope this week is happy,productive,and stress free.Be happy for the fact that God loves and cares for you.I send hugs to you,and praises to Almighty.Here is a copy of what my daughter,Jeriqua,wrote to me on FB yesterday.A blessing. :)
Happy father's day to someone who was both to me... yeah, my life wasn't perfect. We struggled a lot,but this person made sacrifices and fought tooth and nail so we got by while my real "father" chose not to be around, so mom, even though you made mistakes, I understand. I understand the love you had for us and the sacrifices you made. No parent is perfect. Unfortunately, children don't come with an instruction manuel. You at least taught us what matters in life and taught us morals and values and you were there for us no matter how many stupid decisions we made (mind you, there were plenty...) and never left our sides. I love you mom! Happy Father's day
Gorgeous Day....Rejoice it is a New Day~
This is the day the Lord Has Made~
We love him, because he first loved us.
1 John 4:19
Jeanette I hope Ray is doing better.
We have been bust cutting firewood our neighbor had 3 trees blow down in the storm we had. He gave us the fire wood so we had to go get it.
We are enjoying 3 days of nice sunshine. Then last 2 morning has been cool for us.
I pray the good Lord will send you all blessings.
God bless everyone.
Enjoy your Sunday~ y'all~
Good morning.Just relaxing before heading to work today.It was nice to hae yesterday with William.Hopefully,soon,I will have the entire weekend off each week.I wish everyone here a happy and productive week.Hugs to all,praises to Almighty.
Posted yesterday, it has disappeared~
Afternoon blessings, weekend fun for all~
Blue sky and sunshine today, much more cheerful than the dreary day yesterday. Hope it's a beautiful weekend everywhere for all of you Dads out there.
Gerry.........so glad to see you back again. Are you still taking classes? I'm guessing that you daughter is home now for the summer. How is she doing?
Holly........what a beautiful flower arrangement. I hope you and William enjoy your brunch. I cannot stand to get up in the mornings into a dark room or house. I have always opened shades and curtains just before crawling under the covers but after the lights go out. That way I wake up to a house filled with sunlight and nature knocking on the window panes. When the moon is big and full, it also serves as a night light streaming through the windows.
May the Lord bless each soul here and continue to provide for our individual needs each day while keeping us all safe from harm.
Good morning.William wants to go out for breakfast,but by the time he gets ready,it will be time for brunch,lol.I hope that your weekend is happy ,relaxing,and stress free.I can not see outside because he has the shades drawn,hope it will be nice out today.I send hugs to you,and praises to Almighty.Have a great day.Keep praying for one another,Almighty works through our prayers.

We have just finished with a non-threatening thunder storm and a round of rain. It has been cloudy and most depressing all morning, but since the rain, it is getting lighter outside and hopefully we will see some sunshine soon. I can almost imagine the shadows appearing on the ground.
Holly.........so happy for you that you have another car. I'll keep prayers active for the insurance and registration for you.
Kaya......you are that one smile in the sea of frowns today. Keep up the positive attitude and spread your cheerfulness to all around you.
I have been reading in Feedback & Suggestions and learned that we are far from being the only ones with the messed up time line. Many complaints about it. But guess what? We have something new to be excited about. Put your mouse cursor over any avatar and you can immediately see how many stars, butterflies, etc., that they have. Isn't that interesting and helpful? NOT! Everytime they add something new that we don't need they knock something else out of whack. If any of you wish to add your complaints, feel free to go register your thoughts on the subject. Not that it will do any good, they say they are working on it, but that means little to me.
This is one of my least favorite months of the year. I am leary of any that have a Saturday the 14th in them. I will be staying in and enjoying the quietness.
May the Lord bless each of us with our individual needs and continue to keep us safe from all harm.
Good morning,my precious friends and family.I hope that you are happy with anticipation as the weekend approaches.I now have a car,thank God for that,and thank all who prayed about that.Now we keep praying that I am able to insure it and register it with no problem.This will be a help to many people.Jeanette,I am hoping that you get some stability in your caregiving and in your schedule.Thank you ,everyone,all for the nice pictures you post.Have a great day.Praise to Almighty.

Blue sky, sunshine, and lots of heat is the southern recipe for today mixed with a lot of confusion. My nurse that normally comes to check on me quit since last weeks visit. So today I was informed that her alternate would become my regular. That is good, she is very sweet and seems to be very knowledgable in her field. She is also a sister to the nurse that found other employment. She was scheduled to come today from 12 to 1pm but there was a cancellation from one of the other patients so she came 2 hours early. She messed up my daily routine and now I'm all confused....... I feel out of step with my drummer. LOL
Holly........Hope your doctor's appointment goes well and you get a clean bill of health. I will be praying for you to get insurance again so that you can get a new vehicle. Busses are nice when that is all you have, but driving yourself is always more convenient, timewise and energywise. Cuts down on your daily exercise though. Hope your rain comes to an end soon.
Nance.......those pups are so adorable. I would love to have them. You find the cutest graphics.
Since all of the mixed up morning, I never got around to having breakfast and it's past time for lunch. Got to go find something to cook that won't take too long.
May the Lord provide for the needs of all His children and keep us all safe from harm.
Hello~Holly, Jeanette & Friends
Yes, Jeanette, looks like those two are jolly good friends, indeed~ LOL
A good day with sunshine and Blessings to all
Good morning,everyone.I hope that everyone is doing well this morning.Jeanette,we have been getting rain all week.Like you said,at least it is not cold.Hello,Michael,Nance,and everyone else.I hope that your day is happy,productive,and stress free.I just got one of my clients ready and on the bus to go to his day program,and now I am sitting here with his mother,who I also care for,until my relief worker comes so that I can go to my dr. aapointment.I only hava a partial day of work today.After my appointment,I am going to try and obtain insurance on the camper we have,so I am able to get insurance on the car William wants to get for me.(My insurance cancelled because of the accident.)PLEEEEEAaaase!!!!! Pray for God's favour for it as soon as you read this,as I am going this morning.I need insurance so that I am able to get a car,it would make my life easier,and I will be better able to help my children and grandchildren,as well as my elderly parents who do not live in town.Thanks for your prayers for this. Hugs and love to you all,praises to ALMIGHTY.Have a wonderful day.
Good Afternoon everyone........back again, storms moved on to the east of us and now we have a bit of sunshine. It has been a real mess today. It's trash pick-up day and everybody puts the garbage cans out on Monday night for Tuesday collection. Well, the storms blew over the cans, spilled trash all up and down the street, then came the heavy rains and storms. The streets were flooded again and took the trash down the drains so that the water couldn't drain out. The city workers have been out here for a long time working to unclog the mess. Our street is finally clear and dry again. My home health care lady came to help me bathe right after the storm stopped and said the water was bad on this whole end of town. She said Ambassador Caffery is now Bayou Caffery. Thank goodness she drives an SUV and it could pass on our street. Our neighbor had a doctors appointment this morning and couldn't get home after the storm for quite a while.
Kaya.......the time line is all messed up on my computer too. It is not messed up on all groups though, some of them are working okay. I don't know what happened to us. I hope they get it fixed soon. I don't like it either.
Holly.........Thanks for your cheerful words this morning to encourage us through the day and week. If you get as much rain out of this system as we did this morning, look out, you will get drenched. Hope it fizzles out by the time it reaches you.
Michael.........I really loved your devotional this morning. I did not post one since yours was so good. I hope everyone will read it and get the message that it is sending. I posted the reference scripture on the Today's Scripture thread from Matthew 11:25. That is the main thing I wanted to get across to everyone in the study of Matthew, that the Gospel of Salvation by grace was hidden from the disciples and they continued to preach and teach the Kingdom. The main theme they taught was that Jesus Christ was their Messiah and the true Son of God. By preaching the Kingdom, they still kept the Jews tied to the Law, not free from the bondage of the Law and from sin as we are.
Nance........that cute little kitty has found a best friend forever with that bird. LOL. That is so cute.
Rahab........hope that you got all the people downstairs taken care of okay. Sounds like business is good. Do your sell you sculpted wares there? The police force on your town streets look more like soldiers. I think I would be afraid of them.
Justice.........Glad to see your able to join us again today and spreading love everywhere you go. I enjoyed the song, "I love you", it was a happy little bit of cheer. Some of the younger generation sure have some moves. If only our streets could display love and happiness instead of gangs, war and killing.
I am pooped out for today, just too much going on and zapped all my strength. I'm headed for my recliner and either take a nap or crochet for a while. Hope all of you have a blessed remainder of the day.
May the Lord continue to keep us all safe in His loving and merciful care and provide for the needs of all His children.
Hi! Just wanted to tell every one hello.Hey,is the time line in the groups messed up only on my computer,or is it C2 web site.Annoying.Have a great day,be warm and safe and away from the weather out side.Love to you.
We are in the midst of a very strong thunderstorm with some fierce lightening and a tornado warning for the next half hour. Saying prayers this does not come about. We have had huge amount of rain in a short time, our street is flooded again. The postal truck made his pass down both sides of the street though, so I guess it isn't too bad yet. I'll come back later after the storm passes and visit with everyone more.
Jeanette I hope Ray is doing ok.
Nance great looking family. They just make our day.
Jeanette I love the picture of the little birds.
I love all Gods little animals and creations.
When I am in my garden working I feel closer to the Lord and talk to him.
God bless everyone.
An awesome day out there~ enjoy yours~
There are many people waiting downstairs,so I can not stay on here.Have to tend to them all,because I am the only one here today,running the whole place.I hope your day goes well,and you all are too.Love to yah! Yah mon!Irie ites!
Partly cloudy again, very humid. According to the weather channel, we are drawing moisture from the Gulf and sending it northward and over a large area. This is supposed to fuel some strong to severe storms all the way from west Texas up and across Arkansas and even take in the northern half of Louisiana. Unsure if it's going to drop down to include us or not but will probably do so by tomorrow. So, look out country, it's going tomove east and northeast.
Nance........That is a fine looking family, beautiful children. Glad you had a good time and got back home safely. I also enjoyed your coffee cup graphic. You cup NEVER "runneth over". Guess you might say "forever wired" with all of that caffeine. LOL
Kaya........thanks for sharing that prayer with us. It would be a good one to say every morning.
Holly.........wishing you a happy and productive week also. Be prepared, you will get wet later in the week. At least it won't be cold and wet.
Remember to thank God for all our blessings. May He continue to keep us all safe from harm and provide for our individual needs.
Hello~Kaya and friends
Good lookin morning~bit clouds, but, enjoyable too
Hello~Jeanette, Holly and friends
Just returned from 17 hr trip visiting my family
Liam 4 yrs, Gracie 6 months, Sidney 3 yrs
Good morning,everyone.I hope that you all have a day as beautiful as all of you.I am realxing before work.Wish I had more time off,but grateful to have employment.You all are a blessing for sure.Hugs to you all,praises to ALMIGHTY.
There is much rural areas in Jamaica,but kingston is urban.We are out side Kingston,a little more rural,like sub urban .We still let the goats and the kids run,they come home at night like the men,for supper,loving,and a warm bed,haha.I love you all.Please remember,ok.Lots of great advise here.Have a peaceful night.
Partly cloudy and hot down south. Praising God for AC. No rain in the forcast for us but at least the cloudy moments help keep the heat out.
JJ.......wonderful to see you here again. I worry each day that you might not be feeling up to it. Thanks for your confirmation to Gabra. You know her situation and I do not. Being a child of God, she should not allow Satan to use her for a tool to cause others to sin to excess. There has to be jobs somewhere in a school, a childcare center, or even hospital that she could fit into that would be more respectable for her and more pleasing to the Lord. Child care or hospital would be the best place since schools are not in session for 3 months out of the year. How is little Billie doing? Bet she is growing a lot. Your photo of Jamaica at night is pretty. Lots of lights. I didn't realize it was so heavily populated. The clouds look like a huge storm coming though.
Holly........too bad you are so far away or you could come visit with us today while William is at work. Sorry that you are so homesick. I enjoyed the song you sent to me, the original song has always been one of my favorites so naturally I enjoyed the re-write as well. Neat the way he changed out the lyrics for Jamaica.
I only have about 30 more minutes worth of work to do on the afghan I've been working on, seems like forever. It is a different pattern and more involved than the others. Still not sure if I will continue to use that one or not. Maybe I'll finish it us this evening and be done with it. As soon as I can get Teresa to take a pic for me, I'll post it for all of you to see.
Carol.......you have faded into the wallpaper again, don't stay away too long. Hope you are busy working in your garden. Whatever the reason, we miss you.
Florika, Nance, Carla, Gerry, Johnny, Ian, Linda, we would love to hear from all of you too. How is your summer going and what have you been up to.
May the Lord guide is in all our thoughts, words, and deeds, and keep us all safe from harm.
This post was modified from its original form on 07 Jun, 10:21
jj,you snagged my pic!lol.you have such a sweet spirit.Hi,everyone.William is working today,I am not.Bored.I will try to find something constructive to do.Thanks,all,keep up the good work.You,and what you do ,are valuable....priceless.Love and hugs to you,praises to Almighty.
Holly,that is a beautiful pic,that is St.Ann's?Looks like it.You are homesick,aren't you? Can you come for a vacation or something?I think you need to.
Gabby,remember when Yeshua said, "LET HIM WHO IS WITHOUT SIN CAST THE FIRST STONE".It was a woman caught in the act of adultry....don't know where was the man,but that is a different subject.He is the only one who could condemn her,but He did not.The others wanted to,but had no right.Same now.HE still does not want to condemn,and no one else has the right to.I know where you work,I think Jeanette is right.You should go away from there,because of what she said,but you know the other reasons.
Ray-Ray,glad you can stay on here.You got everyone else into this group,lol.Come over later!Were going to the water.
Jeanette,Michel,Ivonne,thank for what you do here.Happy that this group is here,and that you are my family and my friends.Love you all,I really do.
Sorry to be so late coming in today. It's the middle of the afternoon here, lots of sunshine and hot. Ray got to come home yesterday afternoon and I was on pins and needles watching his every move to make sure he was okay. I didn't sleep well either, afraid he would need me and I wouldn't hear him calling me. Finally, when daylight cracked the darkness this morning, I fell asleep and didn't know anything until almost 9:30am. Home health care also came this morning and took up a lot of my time.
Gabra........I would hope that nobody in this group would judge you so harshly. We were all sinners before the Lord called us out and we have all done things that were displeasing to God. I have heard some people actually say I was bad but they were worse than me. There is no degree of sin, they are all offenive to God and one is the same as another. By quitting your job, you show that you have turned away from these offensive actions and repented of them. I really must question your thoughts on continuing to work there though. In Ephesians 5:18 talks about the Spirit filled believer and says....."And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit." As a bartender, would you be encouraging others to drink to access or even to drink at all? When men get loaded with alcohol, do they speak to you in Christain terms or do they speak in manners unbecoming to a lady and child of God? Your body houses the Holy Spirit, is this what you would like to subject Him to each night when you go to work? If the Lord came back tonight to gather us all up and take us to His Father's house, would you want Him to find you in a bar with those people who have rejected Him? I'm sure that the Lord will open another door of employment for you that is more suitable to a child of His. If you accept this position, please continue to seek other employment during the daytime and don't give up until you find something else that is more suitable for you and one that will nurture your soul in a Godly way.
Kaya........thanks for posting the pretty bouquet of roses. I worked a 300 piece jig-saw puzzle very similiar to this but they were not roses. It was hard with all the different colors and shades. Many moons ago when my parents were alive, I used to come spend time with them and we all worked on a puzzle that was 1,000 pieces. It took us weeks and weeks, many moons, to complet them. But it was a pleasant pass-time and good family visiting time.
Justice........I have never in my life seen so many coconuts on one little tree. I'm glad you told us what they were, I never would have guessed it. I've only seen coconuts when they are brown and hairy and on the grocery shelves in produce department. LOL. My grandma used to put little white bonnets on them and hang them on the wall until she was ready to use them.
Michael.......thanks for all the prayers, hopefully this will be all the "fixing" Ray will need on his heart. Hope that you and yours are all doing well. It's getting closer to a new arrival for all of you. Keeping everyone in my prayers.
Holly.......that truly is a gorgeous sunrise. I don't know where it was taken, but it does look most peaceful and calm. There are no white caps on the water, just little ripples creeping onto the shoreline. Only God can paint a canvas like that.
Rahab........I love your photo, happy to see that you were able to figure out how to do it. Am I correct to "assume" that you are the tallest lady in the group? Very nice looking family there. Thanks for sharing it with all of us. I hope that this is the connection that will allow you to stay in Care2 like the rest of us. It seems to be working good for you now. An overcast day seems like a good time to work in the garden. The daylight hours are getting longer so maybe you will find some time to do so.
May the Lord continue to work in our lives and make useful vessels of each of us. May He continue to keep us all safe and provide for our individual needs.
HI everyone. Had some good news about some work.I may be able to still work in the same establishment as a bartender.I am talking to the manager later about doing that instead.I told him why I could not continue my current job,he was very sympathetic about it.so much stuff to work out.cant wait to relax this evening.Hope all works out for everyone here.Hugs.
Still here! No one kicked me off yet!I can still access the account.Maybe it will work this time.Need to work in the garden after work.It is over cast here,but no rain.have a great day,irie limin this weekend.Not me,I have to work.Happy to have work.
Here we go,a beautiul Carribean sunrise to start our day.Most beautiful thing ever! I wish ALL of those in this group peace of mind,health,and happiness.Hugs to you,Praises to Almighty.
Jeanette I hope Ray is doing ok. Prayers for your family.
Gabra the Lord will bless you and help you find a job for doing the right thing.
I wish that all coconut trees this generous,don't you?HAHA. Jeanette,SOOOOOO happy Ray is ok,and you are at peace.Gabby,I would not have told people that.You are braver then me.I am happy that Kaya's yelling and screaming at you got to you.Greetings to all of you,know that you are a blessing,and know that you are loved.
Thank you,Jeanette.I did not know if I should post that about me or not.But guess what.It is what it is.I was scared that people here would think less of me.But that is the truth about who I am.I overlooked my conscience because I needed to support my children,and the more provacative I was,the more money I got.But I think it made bad things happen in the family,because Almighty will not bless that.I hope no one thinks less of me.God forgave me,but I made a commitment to Him.Now I need a different job.I shared it,because I want people to know that no matter how bad you are,someone else is always worse.HE forgave me.I still have many questions.But I choose to believe,even if I am struggling to do it right now.I love you all.Seeing Almighty hearing our prayers helped me to believe a little more.
Hello to all on this beautiful sunny day. After a good nights sleep, knowing that Ray escaped majoy surgery, I woke up relaxed and feeling much better. Ray sounded 20 years younger when I called him. He is chomping at the bit to get out of there and come home. He thinks they might discharge him around noon. He isn't supposed to drive for 3 or 4 days though so we will have to find somebody to go bring him home and just leave his car there.
It sure was nice this morning to come in and see all of you ladies posting. Glad somebody kept things alive in my absence yesterday.
Holly........Mason is a pretty baby, but like JJ said, he needs an oatmeal bath for his skin condition. He looks very alert and I'll bet he will be smart when he gets in school. That was a very good story about the preacher. He did look very scroungy though, I have a hard time trying to vision him all cleaned up and behind a pulpit. Bet he preaches some good sermons.
Rahab........I did not know that you were into sculpting. You must take a picture of your work sometime and show it to all of us.
JJ.........Since we are also affected by the tropical storms, you can bet I won't forget to be praying for all of you in the Carribean. Maybe you should pack up and move back to the states until next fall. You are braver than me to stay there and face those on that small island. Once they get by you, they are much bigger by the time they reach us. The Gulf waters are warmer than the Atlantic and that seems to fuel them even more. I just "googled" Dengue Fever. I had never heard of it before. That sounds like something I don't ever want to have near me. We worry about West Nile virus and that is bad enough.
Gabra........I cannot express in words just how proud of you I am right now. I did not know what kind of work you were into but I'm sure glad to know that you quit. There are plenty of other jobs that you can do that will make you a better witness and testimony to others and make your children proud of you too. Praise God for the work He is doing in your life. I will be praying that He opens a door of new and acceptable employment for you soon.
May the Lord continue to bless all His children, meeting all their needs, and keeping them all safe in His loving care.
You won’t believe how this homeless man was treated right outside of a church… what happened next will humble you.
A Pastor transformed himself into a homeless person and went to the 10,000-member church that he was to be introduced as the head pastor at that morning. He walked around his soon to be church for 30 minutes while it was filling with people for service, only 3 people out of the 7-10,000 people said hello to him. He asked people for change to buy food – no one in the church gave him change.
He went into the sanctuary to sit down in the front of the church and was asked by the ushers if he would please sit in the back. He greeted people to be greeted back with stares, dirty looks, and people looking down on him. As he sat in the back of the church, he listened to the church announcements and such. When all that was done, the elders went up and were excited to introduce the new pastor of the church to the congregation. “We would like to introduce to you our new Pastor.” The congregation looked around clapping with joy and anticipation. The homeless man sitting in the back stood up and started walking down the aisle. The clapping stopped with all eyes on him. He walked up the altar and took the microphone from the elders (who were in on this) and paused for a moment then he recited,
“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ ‘The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”
After he recited this, he looked towards the congregation and told them all what he had experienced that morning. Many began to cry, and many heads were bowed in shame. He then said, “Today I see a gathering of people, not a church of Jesus Christ. The world has enough people, but not enough disciples. When will YOU decide to become disciples?” He then dismissed service until next week.
Following in the footsteps of Jesus Christ should be more than just talk. It ought to be a lifestyle that others around you can love about you and share in.” Be a Christian all you want, but at least follow the teachings of Christ if you’re going to claim the title.

I quit the job that I was doing,because I do not think it is moral.I did not care before.But now I do.I also feel that if I expect others to have respect for me,then I must have self respect.If my dancing cause men to think about 1 thing,it is just wrong,not a thing I do if I am a Christian.When my kids ask me what my job is,what do I tell them.When you become a Christian,you need to change.Jeanette,I will pray.If I can help at all tell me,please.I have been really concerned about you.I really wish I was there right now.But please know I pray.Do you know any more?

HI . GORGEOUS BABY,HOLLY.JEANETTE,WE ARE HERE FOR YOU,WE ARE PRAYING,AND ALMIGHTY HAS RAY,AND HE HAS YOU.IT OK,IT OK.I AM CURRENTLY TRYING TO COMPLETE A SCULPTURE.RELAXING.FILL YOUR DAY WITH LOVE,YOU ARE ALL MY FRIENDS.
Good morning.This is Mason,finally catch him with his eyes open,he looks just like Israel.I wish you all peace,the kind that only Almighty can give.He loves you.
Rahab........I looked around my profile page and can only tell you very little. Go to your page, just above the frog picture there is an option "Edit Profilel". Click on that and then across the top are several more options. Click on Photos. It tells you that you can upload up to 200 photos a month. Up load the pictures you want to have in there. Then on the one that you want to use for your profile, click the link it tells you to and hopefully it will work. I do not use Care2 for my photos so I cannot remember how I got my pic in there. I store all of my photos in PhotoBucket. My daughter might have helped me figure out my avatar, it's been about 10 years ago. I know I couldn't do it on my own now. See if Holly can help you. She posts lots of pics, maybe she uses Care2 to upload hers. Good luck.
I hope that all of us overstand how fortunate are we to have God,to have each other.No taking that lightly,some people have no one.
We started out with blue sky and sunshine but now the clouds are rolling in off the Gulf and the sun in playing hide-n-seek with us. Now you see it, now you don't. Nebraska, Kansas and Iowa are targets today for severe storms and possible tornados, please keep them in prayer.
Rahab.......I wish I could tell you how to add your photo to your avatar but I truly don't remember. I know you have to do it from your profile page. Maybe you can find something there to click on for instructions. I'll try to remember to look also when I finish with groups. I'm afraid if I tell you incorrectly that you will lose your profile again and I want you to stay around this time.
Justice........thanks for all the love, you are a real blessing to have around. Hope that you know you are also loved in return.
Carol........so happy that you realize and feel the love that we all share. You are our sister in Christ Jesus, how can we not love you? Jesus told us to "love one another" just as He has loved us. With all the miles between us, the only way we can show love is verbally and through prayer. Is there any better way? Holly expressed it better than I could but she speaks for all of us. As for kicking ourselves when we are down, we are all guilty of that. We must learn to forgive ourselves and accept today for what it is. Yesterday is gone forever and tomorrow is not a promise. Enjoy and love the day and live it to the fullest. Now........what veggies are you planning to put in your garden? I just might have to send my shopper up to see you.
Holly.........thank you for all of your input and thank you for all the colorful flowers and beautiful butterflys in your graphic. It brightens up the whole room.
Please remember to pray for the new requests on the Prayer Request thread as well as the older ones. So many of us are going through trials of our own and need divine intervention to resolve them and to give us comfort and strength to get through them.
Michael.........Hope all is well with you and yours. Sending love your way and keeping you all in prayer.
May the Lord guide each of us in all our thoughts, words, and deeds and strengthen us to avoid the temptations of the Devil in his efforts to destroy us. May He continue to provide for all our needs and keep us safe from all harm.
Hry,how do I put my picture in the avatar thing?
I wish you peace and love,the kind ALMIGHTY alone is able to give.
Hi,Carol.Hi,Holly.Hello,everyone else.Love you all so very much,don't you know.This is forCarol,and who ever else needs to know it.You are loved.Michael,Jenette,thanks for all that you do.
Good morning,everyone!Hi Carol! I think that everyone goes through what you are describing.Do you have children?If your children,grandchildren,or another person that you love really messes up,even if they keep doing it,do you stop loving them?"IF YOU,BEING EVIL,KNOW HOW TO GIVE GOOD THINGS TO YOUR CHILDREN,HOW MUCH MORE WILL YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER GIVE TO THOSE WHO ASK HIM." Right?If you feel a conviction,it is Almighty,because He wants you do do something.If the voice in your mind and heart is condemning,it is a devil.Pay no attention to it,it is bad.He loves you,and you have significant things to contribute .He is only a prayer away,and you have friends here to care about you as well.It is ok.Hugs to all of you,praises to ALMIGHTY.
my cup is overflowing with love for all of you as i've read through this new thread. thank you all for the prayers and encourangements through good times and bad!
my next goal is to GET THE VEGETABLES IN THE GARDEN. started, but need to finish...
love to all...
LG says this so well:
Dear Ones —
I have a lot of trouble sometimes forgiving myself for my mistakes and failures. I lie awake at night and review my errors, and wonder how I could have been so blind. I wish for thousands of second chances, third chances, hundredth chances, to go back and correct myself — to finally get it right. I want to un-say what I said, or speak out what I never dared to express. There are people I want to go back in time and eliminate from my destiny, and others whom I want to retrieve because I lost them so foolishly. I long to take what is fixed and finished and done, and do it over — better, always better. I think, "You should have known, Liz, how could you not have known?"
I'm sure I'm the only person who does this to myself, right?
Then I remember this line from Rumi, about embracing everything (EVERY SINGLE THING) that has brought you to this place, to this divine moment:
“If God said, ‘Rumi, pay homage to everything that has helped you enter my arms,’ there would not be one experience of my life, not one thought, not one feeling, not any act, I would not bow to.”
I remember that, and I bow down in gratitude to it all.
ALL of it.
Sending you love this fine morning,
FOR YOU.YES,YOU!ALL OF YOU!
Jeanette,try "Half Way Tree,Kingston,Jamiaca 12".
Hello.Ahgain,I am attempt to be on here with no kicking me off,or denying my access to my existing account. :) I do not forget my friends,ever.How is everyone? New week,with new opportunities now.Justwant to say hello to all of you.:)
Again we have a mixture of clouds, blue patches, and sunshine in and out. Going to be another one of those days. The area of concern today should be on Nebraska. They are in a very high risk of severe and damaging weather. Carol.......Hope you have a safe shelter to go to.
It was a wonderful weekend for us. I have not been able or strong enough to go get a hair cut since last December and my hair was growing down my back. Saturday, there was a knock on the door and a lady Ray had talked to about me and Teresa was here to give us both hair cuts. I feel so alive again getting that heavy unmanageable straw off my neck and back. She said I look 10 years younger with short hair. I never realized I could be so happy with something so simple. That was the best gift EVER. Teresa is just as elated with hers as I am. We have both giggled the rest of the weekend.
Justice.......So happy to see you posting with us again. It sounds like you have been over-doing it again. You need to take it easy, sit and rest and do next to nothing. It's going to take a long time, maybe up to a year for you to regain your strength back again. If you ever want to be able to care for those you love, then you must let others take care of you until you are strong enough to do it. I don't know who told you that you are the bionic woman, but they lied to you. Now, I'm through fussing at you and you know that I would't do so if I didn't care. The Lord cares about you too, do not reject the help He sends for you. Accept it graciously and thank Him. Are you still planning to come back to the states, or have you decided to stay in Jamaica?If I wanted to write you a letter, where would I send it? Send me a personal message and let me know please.
Kaya......hope your sunburn is feeling better by now. Are there any aloe plants near you? We always broke off a piece of the plant and sliced it in half and then laid it on the burn areas. Healing comes a lot faster and less painful. What have you planted in your garden?
Gabra......good that you had an extra day off. I bet the kids loved having mommy around to love and spend time with them. You really needed that since you are working the night shift and sleeping in the daytime. They don't get to see much of you that way.
Holly........wow......a long weekend off for you and a festival to enjoy at the same time. It's good that Jasmine got to enjoy an outing also. Give her a chance to clear away the cobwebs in her mind so she can think more clearly. Let's just pray that she now thinks with more Godly wisdom than before. Everyone needs a break from their regular routine now and then.
Please, everybody, check out the Prayer Request thread for new requests and updates that have been added. We all need to remember one another in prayer daily.
May the Lord bless each of us this day and keep us safe from harm.
