Open The Gift Of Gratitude

Open The Gift Of Gratitude

We are grateful for eyes that can see and ponder, for taste buds that know the pleasures of eating and drinking, for hands that hold, and touch and feel, for ears that can delight in music and the voice of a friend, for a nose that can smell the aroma of newly mown grass or delicious food, and also can breathe the air that gives us life. We are grateful for the eyes of faith, for believing in the presence of God, giving us hope in our darkest day's, encouraging us to listen to our spirit's hunger, and reminding us to trust in the blessings of God in our most empty day's. Yes, we are grateful!

Light for Today: Praise the Lord, oh my soul; all my inmost being, praise His holy name. Psalm 103:1

The Good Life

artist: Trina Clark

I read a little something yesterday that impressed me greatly. This little writing said our attitude must be one of complete reliance on God and when we get to this point there is nothing easier than that. Our difficulties come when we try to usurp the authority of the Holy Spirit. When I can completely rely on God and I know my Father cares, then I can watch and anticipate how He will unravel my problems.

Light for Today: Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you...Let not your heart be troubled. John 14:27

Christmas Gifts

The Cross Is Not Greater

google image

We sang an old hymn in church yesterday that we've sang thousands of times before but it spoke to my heart like never before. "The Cross Is Not Greater" written by Ballington Booth a very long time ago. Here are the words to the first verse and the chorus. If you know it sing it and be inspired.

The cross that He gave may be heavy,
But it ne're outweighs His grace.
The storm that I feared may surround me,
But it ne're excludes His face.

The cross is not greater than His grace,
The storm cannot hide His blessed face;
I am satisfied to know
That with Jesus here below,
I can conquer every foe.

I was especially inspired with the last phrase: That with Jesus here below, I can conquer EVERY foe. What a wonderful encouragement.

Light for Today: Come, take up our cross, and follow Me. Mark 10:21

My Favorite Thing

One of my very favorite things is sharing a cup of coffee with a dear friend and having some heart~to~heart conversation. Sharing my life's joys, sorrows, disappointments and dreams with someone special is truly heart warming. Take time for a chat with someone dear to you during this busy Christmas season.

Light for Today: A word spoken in due season, how good it is! Proverbs 15:23

Is Jesus coming to visit you today? What will you discuss? Will you thank Him for all the many blessing you receive? Will you tell Him you love Him? Will you tell Him your sorrows and ask His advice? Jesus will help you with anything and everything. Jesus is the most wonderful friend you can have. He is MY best friend.

A Time Of Joy

No matter what is happening in your life right now do not be troubled. Don't let your soul be sad. Christmas is a time for joy. All hearts should be glad. Jesus, our Savior was born! The one that came to die for our sins. He is the only one that can rescue us from all our troubles. REJOICE.

As you walk down the busy hallways of the mall, full of many Christmas shoppers, be sure to smile at the people. Christmas is a hard time for many. Smiling will make your shopping twice as sweet and you just might make the day brighter for someone. Smiling is cheap so why not!

Light for Today: The cheerful heart has a continual feast. Proverbs 15:15

How are you wrapped for Jesus?

google image

If you were all wrapped up as a present for Jesus would He be pleased with what He received? Or do you concentrate too much on the wrapping and not enough on the present inside?

Light for Today: A man's heart reflects the man. Proverbs 27:19

Wednesday, December 1, 2010


Christmas time involves lots of hustle and bustle. We may as well admit it that it is easy to become stressed out in the midst of it all. We want to buy the right present for our loved ones and bake lots of delicious treats to give away. It takes lots of time. If we are not careful we can become uptight. This season let's make it our goal to stay unruffled when others around us are stressed and also to have forbearance towards those that are ruffled.

Light for Today: If you falter in times of trouble, how small is your strength. Proverbs 24:1
