This morning when I go to church, this is the Scripture that I will be reading and I just wanted to share it with you and pray that it is something we carry with us today and everyday!! Remember, please, that I will also be praying for all of you.
"Brothers and sisters:
I, a prisoner for the Lord,urge you to live in a manner worthy of the call you have received,with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another through love, striving to preserve the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace: one body and one Spirit, as you were also called to the one hope of your call; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all."
I found this on the Internet...
"Blessings are real and visible when viewed from cleansed eyes; eyes that can see possibilities, not problems, eyes that can see opportunities, not spite, eyes that can see new days ahead not a life filled with excuses.
Before you cry "foul", think about all the blessings that are visible. Each day is a new day, a day to start with positive actions based on the blessings you have. "
Leaving you with a smile for today....
The Rev. Billy Graham tells of a time early in his career when he arrived in a small town to preach a sermon. Wanting to mail a letter, he asked a young boy where the post office was.When the boy told him, Rev. Graham thanked him and said, “If you’ll come to the Baptist church this evening, you can hear me telling everyone how to get to Heaven.”“I don’t think I’ll be there,” the boy said. “You don’t even know your way to the post office.”
'Where Is My Paper?' The irate customer calling the newspaper offices, loudly demanded to know where her Sunday edition was. 'Ma'am, said the employee, today is Saturday. The Sunday paper is not delivered 'til Sunday.' There was quite a pause on the other end of the phone, followed by a ray of recognition. 'So that's why no one was in church today.'
Two cannibals meet one day. The first cannibal says, "You know, I just can't seem to get a tender missionary. I've baked 'em, I've roasted 'em, I've stewed 'em, I've barbecued 'em, I've even tried every sort of marinade. I just cannot seem to get them tender."
The second cannibal asks, "What kind of missionary do you use?"
The other replied, "You know, the ones that hang out at that place at the bend of the river. They have those brown cloaks with a rope around the waist and their sort of bald on top with a funny ring of hair on their heads."
"Ah ha!" he replies. "No wonder.. those are friars!"
~~~Thank You Lord for giving me/us this special day set aside to worship and honor You, may I/we never fail to worship and honor You.
