Today's Verse


Oldiesmann: Final update on this, for those not on Seniors and Friends... I got the car. Similar payments to what I had with the Malibu, but for only 4 years instead of 6. Dec 11 2019 1:45am

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

      Morning Devotional...

      ..They shall never perish.          John 10:28

      Wonderful words, and they mean exactly what they say!

      "Never" is a long time! Yes, there are some people who will never perish, who are safe forever in the hands of the Lord. They have eternal life, because the Lord Himself has given it to them.

      Are you one of those people?

      The Lord tells how to recognize them; they hear His voice and follow Him. They don't just know things about Him, they belong to Him personally, and He keeps them forever.

      If you have never heard His voice and decided to follow Him, let today be the day!
                                                                                       ~Carl Knott~

      Jesus, my Lord, will love me forever,
      from Him no power of evil can sever;
      He gave His life to ransom my soul--
      now I belong to Him!

      This is such a great example...........of The Living Bible

      His name is Bill. He has wild hair, wears a T-shirt with holes in it, jeans, and no shoes. This was literally his wardrobe for his entire four years of college. He is brilliant. Kind of esoteric and very, very bright. He became a Christian while attending college. Across the  street from the campus is a well-dressed, very  conservative church.

      They want to develop a ministry to the students but are not sure how to go about it. One day Bill decides to go there. He walks in with no shoes, jeans, his T-shirt, and wild hair. The service has already started and so Bill starts down the aisle looking for a seat. The church is completely packed and he can't find a seat. By now, people are really looking a bit uncomfortable, but no one says anything. Bill gets closer and closer and closer to the pulpit, and when he realizes there are no seats, he just squats down right on the carpet.

      By now the people are really uptight, and the tension in the air is thick. About this time, the minister realizes that from way at the back of the church, a deacon is slowly making his way toward Bill. Now the deacon is in his eighties, has silver-gray hair, and a three-piece
      suit. A godly man, very elegant, very dignified, very courtly. He walks with a cane and, as he starts walking toward this boy, everyone is saying to themselves that you can't blame him for what he's going to do. How can you expect a man of his age and of his background to understand some college kid on the floor?

      It takes a long time for the man to reach the boy. The church is utterly silent except for the clicking of the man's cane. All eyes are focused on him. You can't even hear anyone breathing. The minister can't even preach
      the sermon until the deacon does what he has to do. And now they see this elderly man drop his cane on the floor. With great difficulty, he lowers himself and sits down next to Bill and worships with him so he won't
      be alone.

      Everyone chokes up with emotion. When the minister gains control, he says, "What I'm about to preach, you will never remember. What you have just seen, you will never forget.

      "Be careful how you live. You may be the only Bible some people will ever read".

      I asked the Lord to bless you as I prayed for you today.

      To guide you and protect you as you go along your way......

      His love is always with you, His promises are true,
      And when we give Him all our cares, You know He will see us through.

      God Bless all of you


      Hi Judy!

      Great to see you posting tonight!  

      That's a good example indeed.

      Pat, thanks for the devotional and links.  There was one man in our fellowship who was greatly perplexed because  he feared that he might not be one of the lucky ones whome God had chosen.  It was nice to point him to the passage that tells us that whoever comes to me (Christ) I will no wise cast out.  The Love of God is all-embracing and it is wonderful to be able to dwell on that theme on this day in particular.

      Judy  I really loved your story.  Is that a true story?  It never ceases to amaze me how we can judge people by the way that they look without even realising that we are doing it.  Jamese's epistle says something about that I think.

      I trust that everyone has a great day today and I look forward to enjoying fellowship with you.


      Ruth Ann Bice

      Good morning,

      While Good Friday is obviously symbolic of the actual day our Saviour died for us, it gives me the opportunity each year to contemplate His overwhelming love for us. I never cease to be amazed that He cared THAT much - to give His very life that we might find salvation.

      Y'all have a good day today.

      Ruth Ann
      ...his compassions fail not.  They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.


      Good morning to all who come in to this community....I pray that your day goes well and that we take this time to remember our Lord and what He has done for us. I myself am very thankful for Him and His self-sacrificing love for me and the whole world.

      Welcome Judy....great story that you shared thanks and come in and chat and share more often with us if you will.

      Hello Anthony, and Ruth Ann....God bless you both...
      bye for now....Paulette


      Welcome Larry!  We hope that you post often.  Will you be in high altitude in Peru?  What an exciting endeavor!  Good Luck.

      Judy:  So sorry to read that you and hubbie had so much pain - and at the same time.  Thanks for your story on the "different" man at worship.  

      Janet:  Sorry that you had a frustrating day of waiting for news about Beth.  

      Marilyn:  The insurance on both our cars went up almost $200 for the year and same vehicles.  It gets annoying.  I liked your doggie story on when you said "run run".  

      We are going to Good Friday services tonight.  Yesterday, missed the Maundy Thursday service - there is also Saturday night service and of course the great Easter morning gathering.  Tonight will be filled with special music and is such a treat - so much work for pastor and choir this entire week.

      We will have 13 in total for Easter dinner and it looks like cooler weather.  Carol


      Good morning everyone.  How is your day going so far?  We have a windy, rainy day, but we're supposed to start getting warmer weather tomorrow.

      Pat, that was great that you added the poet's corner!  I didn't think you'd take me seriously.  :D.

      I can't post very much this morning, we have a full morning of work ahead of us.  I'll probably pop back on later.  Jen.


      It's good to see so many posting this morning.  God bless you all and I hope you have a good day today.

      Ruth Ann, it's so good to hear you testifying to the love that the Lord has shown towards you.  How nice it is to be able to look back on all that the Lord has done for us.  Thanks for your contribution.

      Paulette, God bless you sister and I sure do hope you have a great day today.  Are you going to the concert tonight?  Have a great time if it is.

      Carol, I do trust that the services at your church will be a blessing.  It is a lot of work for the church leaders, but I am sure that the congregation will know the benefit of their labours.  God bless you sister.

      Jen (am I allowed to call you Jen?  You can call me Mr Patrick if you like ;D)  Do you write poetry yourself?  It is nice to write spiritual poems I thinkk - where the words can testify to the goodness of God.  If you do write poems, I hope you will share some of them with us.

      Have a great day everyone.  I am just getting ready to go to the gym (my ribs have healed quite well).

      See y'all later.



      Hello to all of you.  :) :) :)  I'm so glad I found you again.  Thank you , Pat for the e-mail and telling me you were up & running your morning devotional again!
      I'll need to try and play "catch-up" now.

      Today is such a sad/glad time. My heart  hurts knowing that Jesus had to suffer for all my sin.   What a terrible day for Him to have suffered so.  

      But, He lives, He lives! Christ Jesus lives today!  

      God bless all of you during this Easter season!  
      Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life.  No man cometh unto the Father but by me.  John 14:6

      Good morning.

      Thanks, Pat, for the devotional.  

      Judy your story reminds us that God is no respecter of persons.  Every soul is precious.  in His sight.  

      James 2:1-5
      1   My brothers, as believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ, don't show favoritism.
      2   Suppose a man comes into your meeting wearing a gold ring and fine clothes, and a poor man in shabby clothes also comes in.
      3   If you show special attention to the man wearing fine clothes and say, "Here's a good seat for you," but say to the poor man, "You stand there" or "Sit on the floor by my feet,"
      4   have you not discriminated among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts?
      5   Listen, my dear brothers: Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and to inherit the kingdom he promised those who love him?  (NIV)

      --- Papa John    ;D
      Eph 2:8-9  For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-- and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God-- not by works, so that no one can boast.(NIV)

      How can I be welcome in God's family?

      Today is a day of prayer for me. I thank you all for all the kindness and the words that help me through my day. I sometimes feel as I should say a thank you for every time i get a help from each of you. I hope you all know i read your every word and in such a short time I have a love for all of you as my friends.

      and a most special prayer of thanks to my friend ms Karmat for your help to me.  :-[ I am so glad you are my friend :'(

      Larry Hanna

      Hi everyone on Good Friday.  God gave us rain last night, some fog this morning and now overcast but the sun is suppose to burn through the clouds later today.  What else could we ask for.  In a way this is almost a metaphor for the Easter season.

      JudyB, your story spoke volumes.  Sometimes an example is worth more than thousands of words and that story certainly painted a vivid picture in my mind.  

      Larry Rockwell, it is good to see you are joining us hear.  I am certainly looking forward to learning more about you and your preparation for missionary work.  It is nice to have another Larry posting here.

      Speaking of the cost of car insurance, we insure three cars and pay over $1,600 a year.  The rates are very high around the Atlanta area as there are so many cars and the risks are higher.

      Judy, hope you are in less pain today.

      Janet, glad to see you safely home and understand your frustration in not learning much from the doctor in Beth's behalf.  Perhaps the tests done this week will shed some light on the situation when you go back on the 28th.

      Paulette and Jen, hope you enjoy the Steve Green concert.  I believe he gave a concert at our church sometime ago but we didn't attend.  Our youth minister is part time because he represents Christian music groups and artists so we have quite a few concerts at our church.  I remember a  concert we attended put on by the group Glad.  It was a great concert.  A few months ago we had a young woman professional Christian singer give a concert and she made some very difficult demands concerning the length of the grand piano and that it had to be tuned at the day before and again at noon on the day of her concert.  That struck me as being a bit unreasonable.

      Kathy, glad you found us again.

      Papa John, your sailing trip sounds like a lot of fun but I don't think I would want to get too far from the shore.  What if the wind died down?  ??? ???  Enjoy your last few days in Florida.  Your scripture reference is right on with the story that JudyB posted.  

      Al, did you write that piece about "Look at the Cross"?

      Hi Anthony, Marilyn  and  everyone joining us today.

      I plan a very quiet day today as have nothing on the schedule.  Pat isn't feeling too good today and has laid back down for awhile.  She has had a good week so far but I guess is paying for the shopping she has done the last few days.  This is just her fibromyalgia acting up and it will pass.

      Pat, I am going to use the Bible verse you have in the devotional this morning after my name.  Thanks for using it today.


      Good Morning Everyone!

      It was great to see JudyB posting last night.  The more you do it, Judy, the easier it will become.  Glad you like the photo of you that I put in by your name.  Now, we have to work on the "llama" status!   :o

      Hi Anthony...  It's wonderful to know that the Lord chose me.  I am ever so thankful for that each day.  I'm glad that I, too, am included in the "whoever".  It's good too, to hear that your ribs are healed now.  Today I feel as if I have some broken ones!  (But they really aren't!)

      Good Morning to you Ruth Ann.  Yes, what an overwhelming love for us God had when He gave His only son to die for us!  

      You didn't tell me where Keith Green is singing, Paulette and Jen.  Have a great day.  It's kind of chilly here in Guelph this morning.  It doesn't know whether to rain or snow!   :o  No, Jen, you have to fill up the Poet's Corner for us!  :o

      Enjoy the services at your church, Carol.  I think I'll be at Janice's tonight.  My insurance on my one car seems high to me too but then upon checking what others around here pay, it's really not.

      Kathy, it's so good to see you!
      I was getting concerned as to where you were!  We have your wonderful testimony on our web page but no Kathy posting in here!  :-[

      Papa John, thanks so my for your added words of wisdom this morning.  I so look forward to them each day.

      JudyB ~ I have read this story several times in my e-mail and it still causes tears to well up. Thank you for posting it!

      mercychild ~ I have a poem that my Daily Encounter was built around today and it is also found in Hymnal's. I will post it. It is by Sir John Bowring, it is "In the cross of Christ I glory,"

      Papa John ~ That is so true and I know people who do judge people by their dress or their homes and yards. I try not judge by appearances.

      Al Moak ~ So very true words. It is great. Would be great to print out and tack where you can see it all the time.

      Marilyn ~ I believe everyone who posts in CP adds something to the others lives. You have added much to all of our lives.

      Good morning!  I've had my morning swim and done a few chores around here, now I'm checking what's happening on CP!  Later I have to go get the license tags for our vehicles, and do other errands in town.

      It's great that this site is growing in every way, and it's such a blessing to so many!

      I will return later and see what else is new!  Have a great day, everyone!

      Whooooooeeeeeeee, it sure is good to see everyone posting this morning! I just wanted to stop back and tell y'all that I have posted Sir John Bowring's poem/hymn in our new Poet's Corner.



      I'm with you jerry WWWOOOOOOOEEEEEEthis has breen a busy place today. It has been busy all week come to think about it. I know I was here most of the day yesterday as I was home all day. Back to work today, of for two days work two days off again and work two more. I have such an easy job at the library that is hardly ever busy. On But when It is it is really busy.
      I shall return

      It has been so good to read everyone's uplifting messages.  It's beautiful weather here in the UK, but it is supposed to go cold again in a few days.

      Kathy, it's good to see you posting today.  Your thoughts are so encouraging.  Our Lord went through the depths of agony, but He rose victorious - what a glorious thought.  Do you know the chorus Because He lives, I can face tomorrow  I love the words to that song.

      Papa John, a very pertinent scripture quote.  I am afraid that I too am guilty of judging people by their appearance.  The man who led me to the Lord always used to tell me to look for those people in church who are on their own and go up to them and share the  love of God with them.  It is surprising how much the love of the Lord fills your heart when this is done.

      Al, that's a very thought-provoking piece of prose.  Thank you for sharing it with us.  Did you write that?

      Marilyn, that was a very edifying message.  Thank you for it and we all enjoy meeting up with you and gaining something from your posts.

      Meika, how nice to have met you on this forum.  I am glad that Karma has been a good friend to you.  She keeps throwing things at me, but in a friendly way.  Keep on posting, we are all coming to love you very much :)

      Larry, what a strange request by the lady singer.  It reminded of one time when a visiting preacher insisted on iced lime juice in the glass while he ministered the word.  I am afraid that the pastor gave him water like everyone else (we were out of lime juice ;))  It's good to see you today brother.

      Pat, it is always good to hear from you.  What are you planning for today?  I would love to take you to that Steve Green concert, but I don't think I could get over there in time  ;)  Have a great day whatever you do.  If you have time Pat, could you post the weaver's poem  in the poetry section.  I have it somewhere, but I can't remember what book it is in.

      Jerry, it's good to see you today.  I am just off to the poetry section to read the poem you posted up.  Some of these hymns are almost like scripture (almost!) as I am sure that they are inspired by the Holy Spirit.  Thanks for posting it.

      Janet, I am so sorry that the trip to Texas (I think it was Texas) was a bit of waste of time.  I do trust that the doctors will be able to help Beth out.  It sounds like you've got another busy day ahead of you.  I have been working on my website today and getting a bit tired of the computer.  It's still good to look in on the forum though.  I hope you have a great day anyway sister.

      Phew, I  hope I have mentioned everyone.  God bless to you all and for those who are attending services tonight, may the Lord bless each assembly.

      Good Morning All,

      I've been checking in but keeping my post to a min.
      I'm working on better time management.LOL

      I hope all of you are going to have a wonderful weekend as we turn our eyes to the Father!
      I have yet to decide what delicious dish I will be taking to my MIL for dinner?

      It looks like we will have a slight break in our rain for a day or so, then it's expected to return. I hope to get out while the suns out and get some photos.
      Happy Easter Blessings,


      Pat, I was being a  bit lazy there.  I should try to find my copy of it, but I really can't think which book I found it in.  What a beautiful poem though.

      Denise, well done for looking at the time management thing.  It's a must I think.  The Lord does want us to use each moment of the day very wisely.  How about doing steak and kidney pie and chips for your MIL?  The gravy running over the chips is a great treat (must be followed by treacle sponge and ice-cream :D)

      We're going to be introducing a new feature on our forums which is going to take a little bit to organize but until we make it public, I've asked Larry Hanna to be a Moderator.

      He will be looking after the new feature and we'll probably be able to tell you all about it next week!

      Anyway, until then, please join me in welcoming Larry as our newest Moderator!

      (Now I must get busy and drive to Janice's home and I'll see you all tomorrow!)
