It Felt Like Mothers Day!

Well this past week was busy and as you can see from the previous post a little stressful. I was so looking forward to the weekend and some good ole' family time. It was Fathers Day weekend and that day is always special at our house but this year it felt almost like Mothers Day. Kenny, Alycia and Kacey were asked to sing on Sunday. They got to pick their song and I was so pleased when they picked a hymn that has always been one of my favorites. I don't know about you all but I really like praise music but sometimes a old timey hymn just hits the spot.

The picture is fuzzy because I took it with my phone. Kacey didn't want me to make a big deal about it. Well I cried...it was a big deal to me...my babies with their daddy singing in church. Best gift I ever got for fathers day! LOL!!!! I think Kenny felt the same way! Oh! I forgot to tell you what they sang...Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus.

O soul, are you weary and troubled?
No light in the darkness you see?
There’s light for a look at the Savior,
And life more abundant and free!

Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.

Through death into life everlasting He passed,
and we follow Him there;
O’er us sin no more hath dominion—
For more than conquerors we are!

His Word shall not fail you—He promised;
Believe Him, and all will be well:
Then go to a world that is dying,
His perfect salvation to tell!

I had said that I had a pretty stressful week last week...Well...these words just made me feel so much better. Turn your eyes upon Jesus...Look full in His wonderful face! Have a wonderful week!

God is so Good!!!!! All the time!!!!

His Arms are Around Us!

Have you ever felt like this????? Well if you have...this morning I read some verses that have helped me...and maybe it will help you also.

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." - Matthew 11:28-30

The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing." - Zephaniah 3:17

I can just picture the Lord rocking me in his arms and comforting me. He is telling me don't be scared or stressed because He is here. Just like when our children are young and we sing to them for comfort or to calm them after a long day. We can climb into His wonderful big lap and he will comfort us. He sings over us!

It all boils down to LOVE! I have said and have heard people say "I don't understand why they don't believe in God?" Sometimes we get a little to big for our britches...we expect for others just to do it and we don't take the time to love them to the Lord. I see a generation of young people coming up that feel that they are not loved. They know the facts but they are not feeling the love from us. They see us teaching one thing and doing another thing. We are so consumed with getting them saved that we forget the love that God has given us and how we are suppose to show that same love to others around us.

I know what I am talking about... So!

I have been to church since I was born so I know... So!

I have read the Bible more than once... So!

I teach Bible School every year... So!

I went to school for 4 years for this... So!

I am a Sunday School teacher... So!

All these things sound good but what I know and what you know is not going to help without us showing how God has changed our hearts. Sometimes I feel we are a little arrogant with what we know and folks just don't want to be like us...this is sad and a little scary.

Mowing a yard, washing a car, taking someone groceries, sweeping a sidewalk, helping someone carry their groceries out, calling a neighbor that lives alone, holding a door, giving a stranger a dollar without question and smiling at some one just because. That is planting a seed that you may never see grow but somewhere down the line that seed that you and others have planted with flourish. Do something kind today...make someone think, "What is different about that person?" make someone think, "Why is that person so happy?"

4 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; 6 it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. 11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.

13 So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

Go out today and let GODS LOVE shine through you!!!

Praising Jesus in my PJ's

Well it has been a while since I have been on here and I have truly missed it. It has been a busy couple of weeks. This morning I was relaxing, doing bible study and listening to music. I was praising Jesus in my pj's and this video came up on my computer. Oh, how I needed this song this morning. I love to see youth singing and praising Jesus! If you have ever been to a youth camp you know this feeling! Take a moment to play this, raise your hands and praise God this morning!

God is so Good!
