Good Evening, my dears..
How are you all doing?
Tomorrow is the Lord's Day ...
The weeks just seem to fly by lately..
I don't know if it is the same for everyone or just that I am getting older and time seems to be slipping by faster than ever..
I have been thinking about that lately..
When we are realistic and think about our age then we know that as far as Terry and I go we are quite a way down the road..
With the Lord's blessing we may live many more years if he doesn't come back for us first.
Or we could go home just any day now..
I suppose this is on my mind because in a couple of months I will be saying good bye to another decade..
And starting a whole new one..
But God's grace and mercy has brought me this far..
I am thankful for all He has done for me and for this family..
Shonda called me last night on her cell phone on her way home..
"Mommy, I am so glad the Lord healed you of cancer all those years ago..
Shonda is a chemo nurse and sees so many sad things and sometimes it reminds her of what God did for her Mom..
I know I have talked about this before but there are a few new ones who might not know that in 1998 God healed me of breast cancer..
Such a miracle..
I am so thankful that He did that but I am thankful for many other things, too..
I'm thankful that one day many years ago He saved my soul...
I repented of my sins and He forgave me..
I was baptized in His Name..
He filled me with His precious Spirit..
Then He gave me a changed life..
One filled with His wondrous peace and joy..
I am so thankful that he still heals..
Not just bodies but broken hearts and messed up lives..
That He is still on the throne of my life..
That He keeps me in the palm of His hand..
That He never leaves me nor forsakes me..
That He is still a prayer answering God..
That I know His name and He knows mine..
That His Grace and Mercy is renewed for me every day..
That He is as close as the mention of His Name..
And no matter where I go.. He is there..
That His long arm of love covers me...
When I fail... He forgives me..
And that He sees me as worthy and not as I am..
God loves me ...
And He loves you...
He can make a difference in your life and in your family..
He can replace sorrow for joy..
He can mend a broken heart and make it whole..
He can heal your body and your marriage..
He can give you real joy and real peace..
Only trust in Him...
Every once in awhile my dears..
I need to tell you about Jesus..
He is a faithful God..
The best friend that I have ever known..
I stand on His Word tonight..
Knowing all is well and thankful for the peace He has given to my heart and soul..
Hope you all have a blessed Sunday..
Take your dear families to the House of God and show them that God needs to first in their lives..
He makes life worth living...
I hope you don't mind me sharing a bit of my heart with you tonight..
II Corinthians 5:1 NIV
Love and Prayers..
