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...

There they crucified Him.                           Luke 23:33

The ultimate crime!

The supreme blasphemy!

The vilest obscenity!

The grossest stupidity!

Sinners defiled and dead to God, actually nailed "Him" to the wood.

He, the loveliest Man who ever walked the dust of earth. He healed their brokenhearted, dried their tears, and blessed their little children. He brought the Word of heaven to their hearts and would open heaven to their souls.

Who were "they"?

People like you and me. But, praise the Lord, He did it to procure forgiveness for people like you and me.

                                                                        ~J. Boyd Nicholson~

For me Thou has borne the reproaches,
the mockery, hate, and disdain;
The blows and the spittings of sinners,
the scourging, the shame, and the pain;
To save me from bondage and judgment,
Thou gladly hast suffered for me--
A thousand, a thousand thanksgivings,
I bring, blessed Saviour, to Thee.

How can I say thanks
for  the things you have done for me?
Things so undeservered,
Yet You gave to prove Your love to me?
The voices of a million angels
Could not express my gratitude.
All that I am and ever hope to be
I owe it all to Thee.

To God be the glory,
To God be the glory,
To God be the glory,
For the things He has done.
With His blood
He has saved me,
With His power
He has raised me,
To God be the glory
For the things He has done.

Just let me live my life
Let it be pleasing, Lord, to Thee;
And should I gain any praise,
Let it go to Calvary.

With His blood
He has saved me
With His pow'r
He has raised me,
To God be the glory
For the things He has done,

Jesus was born in a manger.  Period.
He lived a perfect life. Period.
He suffered rejection and a mockery of a trial. Period.
He was crucified on the cross. Period.
He was buried in a borrowed tomb, COMMA.

He is NOT there, HE IS ALIVE.  He is risen from the dead and lives forevermore.  NO OTHER religion can claim as such.  


Wonderful thoughts, Karma!  Thanks so much.

Pat:  I just tried to post and it said the topic was loaded.  You must have been closing at the same time.   :-\

Happy Ressurection Day everyone!

Good Friday service was so emotional for me - for some reason this year, I had a much deeper feeling during the entire service.  

I also have been reading "Let's Roll" by Lisa Beamer, widow of Todd Beamer who died on United flight on Sept. 11th.  It is a great testament of faith and hope.

Welcome Pat Hanna!  You have a terrific husband.

Tomorrow is family day and children will be arriving after attending their churches first.  Carol


Hi Carol...  Oops!  Sorry about that.  You just never know who's trying to post!  It happened to poor Mieka the other night!   :'(

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

Good morning to everyone.  It has been a tremendous encouragement to read everyone's thoughts so far about the resurrection.  One of the most encouraging verses in the bible for me is:

"Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them."

It seems wonderful to me to think that our Lord Jesus Christ is alive and praying for us right now.

God bless everyone and I hope you have a wonderful day.

Happy Birthday Bernard

Anthony, that is one of my most precious verses - He loved us so much He died for us, and now He prays for us.

What more could we ask!

Happy Easter to all.

I am so thankful that my Jesus shed his blood for me.

Greater love hath no man than to lay down his life for his friend.

Thank you Jesus for being my very best friend.

All together now . . .

Happy birthday to you!
Happy birthday to you!
Happy birthday, dear Bernard . . .
Happy birthday to you!

Jesus said, "nevertheless, if I go away, I will send Him to you."  He spoke relative to the Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Trinity.  He is the reason any of us care about our sin, our Savior, and our new lives.  The Resurrection = the Holy Spirit.  Oh pray that He'll manifest His resurrection - in you.



For me this is a weekend of reflection and celebration.

Happy Birthday Bernard.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.  Proverbs 3:6

Papa John

Paul explained it this way:

1 Cor 15:12-20
12   But if it is preached that Christ has been raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?
13   If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised.
14   And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.
15   More than that, we are then found to be false witnesses about God, for we have testified about God that he raised Christ from the dead. But he did not raise him if in fact the dead are not raised.
16   For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either.
17   And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins.
18   Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost.
19   If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men.
20   But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.

--- 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)

I got this in my email a little while ago...

    HE IS RISEN!!!!!!!!   Today, marks the greatest historical event in human history...the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  The reason the resurrection of Jesus is the greatest historical event is because it is the absolute key to our faith.  Paul said in his first letter to the church at Corinth in the 15th chapter, that if Christ did not rise from the dead, then we are still dead in our sin and most vain of all.  However, if He did rise from the dead, then we have the assurance our sins are forgiven and the assurance of everlasting life. You see, Jesus is either the biggest fraud in the history of mankind, or He is exactly who He claims to be...the Son of God.  The resurrection is the key event.

    The historical evidence of Christ's resurrection is irrefutable.  The fact that he died on a Roman cross, the claims of followers seeing the risen Lord, evidence of the empty tomb, the inability of the Jewish leaders to disprove the resurrection claims in the very city Jesus died and was buried, and the radical transformation in the lives of His disciples are all well documented.  His disciples went from being normal men concerned only about there own welfare from the night Jesus was arrested, to bold preachers who were willing to die for their faith.  You also have Jesus' own predictions of His resurrection as well as the fact that soon after was the birth of the Christian church that started meeting on Sunday.  That is significant since these were monotheistic Jews who were used to worshipping on Saturday.

    My friend, the Christian faith has never meant to be a blind leap in the dark.  God never asked His children to just believe without any evidence of what we believe in.  He has given us plenty of tangible historical evidence to help us know without a doubt that what is in His inspired, inerrant Word is ABSOLUTE TRUTH.  Absolute truth that you can stake your very life on.  Of course, once we get to the point we accept the resurrection as fact, and we accept His Word as TRUTH, it then demands that we totally and unconditionally surrender our very life to Him.

    That becomes the logical conclusion of this spiritual journey.  Because you see, it is not our life any longer, it belongs to Him.  Our purpose is to simply serve and glorify Him.  I pray that on this day in which we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, you will recommit your life to Him.  We can all do better.

    None of us have given it ALL to Him...we can give Him more.  Make this day the day that you realize that Jesus rose from the dead, to insure that you will live for eternity with Him if you have accepted Him into your life.

    I pray you have a wonderful Resurrection Day.  For those traveling to be with your family, you will be in my prayers for a safe journey.  May you be richly blessed as we stand together to proclaim to this hurting and dying world that Jesus Christ is the Lord of Lords, and the King of Kings....HE IS RISEN!!!!!!!

    Thank you all for your thoughts on the resurrection.  It is a wonderful truth that does in fact revolutionise people's lives.  

    Our pastor  this morning pointed out there are some doctrines that christians may have alternative views on, but there are some doctrines that are essential to the christian faith.  Of course the teachings on the resurrection are essential to our faith.

    It is sad that some elements within the Church of England try to deny the resurrection, but it is so  nice that here on CP you are all rejoicing in this wonderful truth.

    It's been a great day on here today with somebody fellowship.

    I wonder how Bernard is doing on his birthday?  I trust he had a great day.

    God bless,

    That's a great idea Pat.  I am not sure if I could participate living across the water, but it is a wonderful thought.

    On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross,
    The emblem of suffering and shame;
    And I love that old cross where the dearest and best
    For a world of lost sinners was slain.

    So I'll cherish the old rugged cross,
    Till my trophies at last I lay down;
    I will cling to the old rugged cross,
    And exchange it some day for a crown.

    O that old rugged cross, so despised by the world,
    Has a wondrous attraction for me;
    For the dear Lamb of God left His glory above
    To bear it to dark Calvary.

    In that old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine,
    A wondrous beauty I see,
    For 'twas on that old cross Jesus suffered and died,
    To pardon and sanctify me.

    To the old rugged cross I will ever be true;
    Its shame and reproach gladly bear;
    Then He'll call me some day to my home far away,
    Where His glory forever I'll share.

    Hi Anthony...

    I know what you mean.  It might even be difficult for we Canadians but I'm willing to try.  Larry has been running the Book Exchange on SeniorNet quite successfully for several years now and so this will be good if it works even in a small way!

    Happy Resurrection Day!

    I will remember this day the rest of my life.  It was really something to work for God today and see everything come together right for the two services in our church today.  The music was superb and Pastor David outdid himself.  His sermon was titled...He Holds the Key.  Yes, Christ hold the key to eternal life in heaven.  Because he arose from the dead, we have faith that we, too, will arise from the dead and because of that we should have no fear of death.  

    Just a wonderfull, beautiful day!  

    It was sunshiny, then rain, the sunshine, and rain again.  Right now the sun is bright as ever.  

    Happy Day, everyone!

    Hi everyone.  We had two glorious services at our church this morning with our Chancel choir singing at both services (we normally only sing at our 11 am service).  At the first service the church as about half full but at the second service it was packed and they had to bring in extra chairs.  What a wonderful sight as it has been sometime since I have seen our santuary filled.  Papa John, our Pastor preached on the first 11 verses of 1 Corinthians today.  

    Our youth minister did the Children's sermon on believing on faith but had his little puppy in a cage covered up so the children could not see what he had.  He told them he had a little animal there but didn't show it to them.  Of course, at the end he did show them but he made the point of believing that Jesus was raised from the dead even if we can't see him today.  I thought it was a very effective illustration and one the children might well remember.

    Following church Pat and I went out to eat so that she didn't have to cook today.  Our son was over yesterday to see us and our daughter is out of town this weekend attending a funeral with her friend so we were by ourselves.

    Happy Birthday, Bernard and many more

    Pat, the song "My Tribute" is beautiful.  To God be the Glory.  Judy, the 57 cents story is so touching but so illustrates what can be done if we have faith.  

    A few minutes ago we opened our new Christian Book Exchange.  I hope you will check it out and participate.  It will give us a wonderful way to share Christian literature with others when we have finished with it.  



    We had a great service this morning, I was people coming in that I have never seen before and then some of the regular members had family with them, so our little church had almost a full house this morning. Then after church my 81 yr. old lady friend and I went to to local Chinese resturaunt for lunch. That only the 2nd time she has been able to get out to churchthis year. She is on oxygen with a concentrator at home and uses a walker. iI take her to church when she is up to going.  I love the new section.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BERNARD!!  And many more!

    We didn't get to sing this song today, and it is my very favorite Easter Hymn.  So I am going to put the words here and if you know it, we can sing it together!

                                   HE AROSE
    Low in the grave He lay, Jesus my Savior,
    Waiting the coming day, Jesus my Lord.

    Up from the grave He arose!  With a mighty triumph o'er His foes!
    He arose the victor from the dark domain, and He lives forever with His saints to reign!

    He Arose!  He arose!  Hallelujah, Christ arose.

    Vainly they watch His bed, Jesus my Savior,
    Vainly they seal the dead, Jesus my Lord.
    (Repeat chorus)

    Death cannot keep his prey, Jesus my Savior,
    He tore the bars away, Jesus my Lord,

    Up from the grave He arose, with a mighty triumph o'er His foes!
    He arose a victor from the dark domain, And He lives forever with His saints to reign!

    He arose!  He arose!  Hallelujah, Christ arose!

    Ahhhh.........now I feel better!  Thanks. ;D :D

    Our pastor used the chorus "Lord, I Lift Your Name on HIgh" as the outline for his sermon this morning.  In case you don't know that one, and I'm sure probably most if not all of you do, here are the words to it.  He used the last part as his outline.

    Lord I lift your name on high,
    Lord I love to sing your praises,
    I'm so glad you're in my life,
    I'm so glad you came to save us.

    You came from heaven to earth to show the way,
    From the earth to the cross my debt to pay,
    From the cross to the grave,
    From the grave to the sky,
    Lord I lift your name on high.

    I will stop before this gets too long, but be sure to visit our new thread!!
