Today's Verse


Oldiesmann: Yet another update on the car situation... Going to look at a 2012 Hyundai Sonata tomorrow (Tuesday). Hoping to get it, assuming everything looks good and I can get affordable payments Dec 03 2019 12:04am

Oldiesmann: Accident was my fault. Went through what I thought was a yellow light and it turned red before I got through the intersection. Got hit by cross traffic on the front right side Oct 26 2019 10:34am

Marilyn: So is your insurance going to foot the cost of an new car for you. was the accident the other guy's falt or yours? Oct 22 2019 11:42am

Oldiesmann: Update on the car situation... Initial estimate was that the car was repairable. However, after further inspection at a body shop, the insurance company determined that the cost of repairs is about $1200 more than the car is worth Oct 16 2019 10:28pm

Oldiesmann: For those who didn't see the message on seniorsandfriends, I was involved in an accident this morning. I'm fine and my car should be repairable, but I've had the car less than 48 hours and am not looking forward to the costs Sep 30 2019 12:33pm

Carol: Praise:  I have no cancer after undergoing a skin throat surgery  today!  Everyone was surprised - - prayers answered.   So very blessed. Aug 13 2019 5:25pm

Carol: Today is another drive to the VA.  We have found a little part that is not on the fast and furious freeway.  Whoever thinks that growth in a city is a good thing is wrong.  Two grands came for an overnight and their visits mean so much to us.  /b] Aug 07 2019 10:46am

Carol: I hope everyone is feeling well and happy.  Aug 07 2019 10:42am

JudyB: I have posted a new month! Aug 02 2019 8:05pm

Carol: Good Day - I see John B is online right now. John and Judy, I do hope you are not in the seriously hot temperatures.  I is really a scorcher today about 100 degrees.  Praying for relief. Jul 19 2019 10:31am

Morning Devotional...

After these things the word of the Lord came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.                        Genesis 15:1

Abram had just been through some trying experiences--a famine in the land; the defection of his nephew Lot from the path of faith; the battle with the kings--but Abram had stood firm in his faith, unmoved by the swelling tide of circumstance.

It is "after these things," that God gave Abram this word of encouragement: Fear not. So it is as we tread this wilderness scene.

Often we face trial upon trial, but our God is aware of it, and just when we need it, He gives that renewing word from Himself--fear not!
                                                                  ~Wm. Burnett~

Though thy way be long and dreary,
eagle strength He'll still renew,
Garments fresh and foot unwearied,
tell how God has brought thee through.

"Click for Waterloo Wellington, Ontario Forecast"


Good morning to everyone.  The devotional this morning is very encouraging again.  I like the last line of the hymn tell how God has brought thee through.  It reminds me of some verses of scripture from 2 Corinthians:

"Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;
"Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God."

When we think that witnessing for the Lord simply means telling everybody what God has done for us, it takes all of the toil out of the exercise (well, it does for me any way).

I hope everyone has a great day and I will see y'all later on.



There were a record number of posts I think last night, so I don't think I am going to be able to answer everyone.  Just to say it was great to read them all.

Welcome to Denise Rayney

It's great to see a new member joining in with us.  Hope you enjoy your stay here.

I did notice Sonja posting.  God bless you sister.  I hope you all manage to get a good night's sleep and look forward to hearing from you later on.

God bless.

Well .... I was just posting a really enlightening and interesting message when, all of a sudden, it was whisked away into cyperspace!    :'(

I really was the first one here but .... well, looks like ANTHONY got in while I was looking for my wonderful message (which shall ever more remain invisible to all y'all).  Hi ANTHONY!! ;D

Yesterday I fell asleep while watching the evening news and a phone call woke me.  I glanced at the clock as I answered and was really surprised that Nita would call so early in the morning.  It was 7:20  ???  It so happened to be p.m. though, not a.m.   I think I'm really losing it these daze.    :(

About my plumbing problems: I ended up calling Roto Rooter and the man found a place under the bathroom floor where a connection had "blown".  He said it was a small lake under the house where the water had been gushing.   :-\  The good news is that he said I could get in on the class action suit against the manufacturers of the polybutylane pipe and they'll repipe my house for free!  I'm going to see about it this morning.  (I finally figured what time of day it is).

I have a few things to do so I'll be back later ... Y'all take care, now y'hear?    ;)

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass .... it's about learning to dance in the rain!


Jane, now listen to your uncle Anthony, you ought to be in bed by now ;D ;D ;D

That plumbing problem sounds very nasty.  These things are incredibly frustrating and I hope you manage to get it all sorted out.

See ya later.



Good morning everyone.  Pat, I hope you're not too tired after your walk with us last night.  Geordie looked like he was enjoying himself!

Mieka, I think the greatest glory for us in Heaven will be to look upon the Face of our Saviour after trusting Him in blind faith here.  :D.

Janet, that was an interesting little analogy. I've seen some things like that before, and I think sometimes it helps people to put things in perspective.

Anthony-what's the latest update on college, things going any easier for you?  I will take a photo of my garden when it starts to bloom.  I planted bulbs, so they may be a while in growing.

Sonja, I am still praying for you and your family.  I hope you receive the comfort of God and His Word.

Well, I don't want to be late for work, I must run.  Praying blessings on your day, and strength for you Journey everyone.  Jen.


A devotional is a great way to start the day.

I to am a Baptist and it was once said that the anointing of oil would take place only if it was privately asked for and administered in the same way. A morning message explaining the anointing  does not seem to happen.

Must get ready for work and then this evening we are going to a baseball game in Toronto.   The tickets were $l.oo ea.  Toronto's attempt that we are a safe and friendly city.

Welcome Denise Rayney

Have a Great Day

Welcome Joan. Thank you for registering.

I would just like to welcome our newest member to CP.  Joan, I do hope that you enjoy your stay with everyone on Christian Photography.  I look forward to hearing a bit about yourself.



Good morning!  and a big welcome to JOAN! We hope you will feel at home here and become a regular poster.

We have had our swim and now getting ready for the day's challenges.  I think a trip to Liberal is on the agenda, among other things.  I will stop to see Abby, as we got busy outdoors (burned more of those pesky tumbleweeds) and didn't get down to get her yesterday.

I wish you all a wonderful day with our loving Lord!

Hi everyone and a big welcome to Denise and Joan.

My day started off in an interesting way as about 5 am I felt the house shake a couple of times and thought there must have been an explosion.  On the way to coffee I learned from the radio that we had an 4.9 earthquake here in the Southeast at that time.  I had experienced several earthquakes in the late 60s when we lived in Alaska, but none since.  I don't think there was any damage from it, at least that I have heard about.

Janet, interesting piece on the Lord's Prayer.  It causes one to stop and think about what we are saying.  

Sonja, glad to see that you are home and hope your son is feeling much better.

Jane, sorry to read of your water pipe problems and hope you can get the settlement from the class action suit.  I have lived in a new neighborhood where they had the plastic pipe problems.  Fortunately we sold the house and moved away without experiencing the problem.

Today is Calvin Cove day.  



Jane, I can really empathize with you about the water pipe problems!  I don't think there is anything as frustrating and nasty and inconvenient as plumbing problems!

We are having to completely re-wire and re-plumb Darrel's rental because the people who lived in it last just wrecked things.  How anyone can do that much damage is beyond my comprehension!  It had to be deliberate! :-\ :( >:(

Anyway, I wish you the best of outcomes on this deal! :)

Good Morning> Pat thank you for the devotional.
I would like to give you a couple of testimonies on the annointing with oil and laying on of hands.My prayer partner, Inez, had an ugly looking dark growth on her arm. I anointed it with oil and laid my hand over and prayed for the Lored to remove it, two days later it was gone and the doctor asked her what happened, she told him that it was removed by the power of God. The doctor was going to remove it surgercally.
I smashed my finger inthe sliding glass door and it was cut enough that it should have had at least 3 stitches. I called my friend to come over and take me to the emergency, instead she annointed it with oil, prayed over it and bandaged it up, three days later you couldn't even tell I had smashed it except for the dent in my fingernail it was all healed up.
Praise the Lord for His healing power.


I will return later.
God Bless you all

Good morning everyone.  What a great devotional.  

Janet ~ Your analogy about 'The Lord's Prayer" was done at my church as a skit one Sunday morning.  Just a lady on stage with a table, chairs, coffee cup, Bible and 'Jesus' on the PA system.  Really touching.  What got me was the lady was in my Bible Study and very shy...very seldom ever talked in Bible Study but she was great on stage acting.  She has performed several skits and acted in several Cantatas, as well.

Jane ~ When I moved here my tiny basement always had water on the floor.  Smelled yucky and musty.  The basement is only about 14' x 14' but Mom had her old electric range, the old sink and cupboard down there and that is where she did her canning.  Course, the furnace, freezer, hot water heater and water softener is there also.  Anyway, the range was gone and Jerry decided to get rid of the sink base since it was metal and rusted out.  Upon inspection, there was a water leak.  Hard telling how long it had been leaking but he fixed it and now I have a dry basement except when it is really raining out and it backs up from the field tiles.  Jerry is a great handyman!!!

Today is the day that Ivalou has lazer on her other eye.  The courtesy car is to pick us up around noon...so if I am to be ready, I had better move on.

We visit every day.  We talk about our children, grandchildren, local politics, aches and pains, sorrows, triumphs.  We discuss the Sunday sermon, our reading of scripture, a new book that touched or troubled us.  We post photographs.  We laugh a lot.  Sometimes we cry.  We make an effort to listen intently.

Our visits to CP is our holy time.  As we read each others posts and look at each others pictures, we posts our thoughts, hopes, and fears to each other and to God.  Our posts are a manifestation of Christ in the world.  Being part of the Body of Christ is not a private walk with Jesus; it is two or three people gathered together with Christ in their midst.  When we show compassion or 'listen' with love, we are expressing Christ.  We are being the church in the world.  Even though we aren't perfect and we don't have all the right answers, we experience Christs's presence in these times together.

Who needs someone to listen???!!!

Etta Sue ~ Thank you for the compliment! I missed it the first time around! Only you should thank God that he gave me so many wonderful talents.


Hi Sonja!  Great to have you back home.  How's Zachery today?  Is he feeling a bit better?

It's great to have Joan here!  

Jane, I'm so sorry about the water pipe problems.  That's certainly a nuisance.  

Hi Anthony!

Hi Pat. Yes Zachery is doing good today.  He is playing his X-box. (game)

Karmat~~How did the prom photos turn out?  Have you taken them yet???  
I was just asked to take a picture of a friend on her Harley Davidson.  I am excited.  If you have any ideas please feel free to share.


That's great that Zachery is feeling a bit better, Sonja!   Let's hope that he keeps it up!

Just wanted to check in before I go to the college.  I am trying to print some more black and whites out, hope it goes well.

I was going to say hi to everyone who has posted, but so many have that I think it had better be a general howdy partners.

I must mention Sonja though and just say how happy I am to see you back.  I am glad that Zachery is feeling ok today.  Hope everything gets sorted out.

Well, see you all later and God bless everyone.


Jerry L. Sowers


I'm sitting here watching CNN and hearing all about the earthquake and thinking about Larry and I never saw Larry's post till now!   ::)  And Joan, too, is in that area.  Hopefully there are no injuries.

"Click for Waterloo Wellington, Ontario Forecast"


Jerry~~ ;D Thanks!!

Anthony~thank you, I hope you have a good day at college.  And hope the printer works good for ya.  They do tend to have a mind of their own sometimes. ;D


It's the chemical printing Sonja.  It smells a bit like rotten eggs :-[, but I enjoy it ;D

I forgot to mention the earthquakes.  I haven't heard it on the news yet, but I am glad that Larry says no-one was hurt.  We had an earthquake some months back now.  I thought someone was breaking in again  ;D

See  ya.



Earthquakes, you ain't seen nothing until you have been in one of these California earthquakes. I have been in an 8.1, well 80 miles away from the 8.1, that was the one where the section fell out of the San Francisco Bay Bridge and the freeway in Oakland collapsed. Then there was the 6.5 in Hollister ca. and lots more. But glad tohear that no one was hurt, gotta be carefull when there a lots of tall buildings around.

I forgot to say welcome back to Sonja I put Zachery on my friends paryers list in Oklahoma as well.

Well, I haven't had time today to do much here.  We have been out to the store for some things.  I have been doing some printing for our daughter, Martha.  We have some errands and visits to make and it seems like I don't have time for anything.

Anyway it is good to read the posts and keep up somewhat.  I hope you all have a good day.
