    My dear friend, who led my father to the Lord many years ago, poster the following:

    Christmas, Easter
    Amazing Grace
    Days for everything
    Measuring time
    Holidays, holy days
    Birthdays, parades
    Let’s pretend,
    Don’t tell the kids
    A game
    Things rule,
    Want reigns
    Entertain me
    Technology galore
    No relief
    Tired minds!

    To and fro
    Fro and to
    Going nowhere
    Malls full
    Things galore
    People grazing
    Reindeer and gifts
    Rabbits and baskets
    Stuff goes fast
    Nothing lasts
    Glad to sad
    Life’s endless cycle
    Bored empty hearts
    Lost in the void
    Troubled lives
    Real pain!

    Amazing grace
    Love and hope
    Hunger for meaning
    Desiring the eternal
    Reindeer, rabbits
    Can’t satisfy the heart
    Grace and peace
    Life from the designer
    GOD sent His Son
    Father wears skin
    Jesus His name
    Greatest of Gifts!

    Flying reindeer
    Bearded round men
    Gifts galore
    Rabbits, colored eggs
    Sweet goodies
    A lowly donkey
    Carries a servant King
    Hands scarred by nails
    Offering hope
    A cross
    Love and forgiveness
    A second chance
    An empty tomb
    He is risen
    New life forever!


  • Can Others Read It Through Us?

    Worry is nobody’s Friend!

    It does no one good;
    It pays no bills,
    It buys no food,
    It heals not the sick,
    And produces an ill mood.

    Worrying about what we can not control
    Is to no one’s gain,
    For it produces only anxiety,
    self-pity and mental pain.
    When we seek solutions on our own,
    Worry is just time spent in vain.

    We must fix what is within our power,
    And to God give the rest,
    Let Him handle the big ones;
    For Him our worries are no test;
    We can always rest assured,
    That He will do what is best.

    Why weaken our health,
    In fruitless despair,
    When we know full well
    That God is always there;
    He slumbers not, nor does He sleep;
    We are ever safe in His care.

    So why worry? It does no good-
    We must trust in God and pray;
    Seek His answers to it all,
    Have faith in Him for a better day,
    For He knows our needs before we ask,
    And He is able to show us a way.

    Richard Ellis


    The Bible says, “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Pro 3:5-6)” 

    Such a profound truth is so easy to read and yet very often difficult to apply! Once we Christians begin trusting our Lord with the small things the bigger things are a piece of cake. We just read God’s promise about worry but the question is – can others read it through us?
