      Morning Devotional...

      (Anna) coming in that instant gave thanks likewise unto the Lord, and spake of Him to all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem.              
      Luke 2:38


      Anna's first words were heavenward. With sincere appreciation, she thanked the Lord for the advent of the long-awaited Christ, of whom Simeon had just spoken.

      In thus rendering her thanks, Anna was spiritually attuned for testifying of Him to "all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem."

      She established a "God first" priority--a perfect example for effective witnessing!
                                                                                                                            ~G. Hall~



      Fresh from converse with your Lord, return
      And work till daylight softens into even;
      The brief hours are not lost in which ye learn
      More of your Master and His rest in heaven.

      MARILYN~I, too, understand your sadness at this time of year. :(   I am always alone away from any of my family on Mother's Day ... add to that the fact that my mother died on Mother's Day!  

      ([size=-1] I used to say she probably planned it that way so none of us would ever forget her[/size])

      Think of the happy times, my friend, and look ahead to this summer when you will be living right next door to your son!   :-*

      Phooey!  Lost my post! :(

      I wanted to tell Sonja what a cute non-smilie that was, the one banging its head on the wall!  CUTE!

      Marilyn, is there an older lady you know, maybe in your church, who is also alone (in the natural) whom you could take to lunch or do something special for on Mothers Day?  That might help to ease your own feelings of lonliness.  I am praying for you, dear sister!

      HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, KARMA AND BERNARD, AND MANY MORE!!               HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PAPA JOHN, AND MANY MORE!

      Now I'm going back up to read today's devotional. :)

      This if from my morning devotional yesterday, and I thought it was really good, so am sharing it here with you.

      May 8 - Keep Quiet

      "A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards." (Proverbs 29:11)

      One of the things that you and I as believers must learn if we want to be faithful servants in the kingdom of God is how to keep our mouths shut. We need to master that skill.

      When we get our backs up about something, we think we have to let everybody know about it. "I'm just going to give them a piece of my mind," we say.

      Don't make that mistake. Nobody wants or needs a piece of your mind-- and if you give it to them, you'll only end up alienating people and bringing harm to yourself. Instead, learn to keep quiet.

      This especially applies in the area of spiritual insight. When the Holy Spirit gives you discernment about a situation, don't go spreading it all over town. If you do, you'll come to the place where the Lord can't trust you with revelation and insight into things and situations.

      I've seen that happen. I've known intercessors who have received revelations about someone's weaknesses or needs. They have been given insight into the problem in someone's life, so they could pray for that person. But, instead of keeping that information between themselves and God in prayer, they told others about it. As a result, they lost their effectiveness as an intercessor.

      Don't let that happen to you. Develop the quiet art of the wise man, and the devil will find it increasingly difficult to harm your prayer life and ministry to others.

      We have snow and rain this morning - twenty inches so far in the mountains and our daughter's place has about ten inches of new snow.  Springtime in the Rockies!

      Marilyn:  Just hold onto the thought that many people are praying for you this weekend with your situation now and the move soon.  

      Joan:  It sounds like you went to an interesting place in Atlanta.  

      Janet:  Thanks for yesterday's devotion.  Yes, wind can be so annoying and we sure get it here.  Sorry about you tomato plants.

      Papa John:  I am hoping that the pain meds are helping.  Happy Birthday !!!!

      Karmat:  Happy Anniversary!!!!

      Marilyn

      Thank you Janet, your devotional certainly speaks to me (how did you know ;D). That has happend to me. The Lord gave me a name  in the middle of the night and in the morning I called and told someone else to also pray for that person,. The reason was unknown to me what the need was I mean, I just got the name. I used to get names in the night frequently and would do the same thing, I no longer receive those revelations. I considered myself spanked bythe Lord.

      Good morning to all and Thank you for the prayers.

      Good morning.  Thanks for all the happy birthday wishes.  Seventy-six is a long time.  I can't even remember the day I was born, May 10, 1927.

      And  HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO KARMA AND BERNARD !

      Every day we need to be thankful for the blessings of God.  Today, like all of you, I think of my mother who has been gone many years.  She was a sweetie.  I look forward to seeing her again in heaven.

      Marilyn

      I go this in my email this morning I want to share it with you all.
      Family attitude
      The 92-year-old, petite, well-poised and proud lady, who is
      fully dressed each morning by eight o'clock, with her hair fashionably coifed and makeup perfectly applied, even though she is legally blind, moved to a nursing home today
      Her husband of 70 years recently passed away, making the move necessary. After many hours of waiting patiently in the lobby of the nursing home, she smiled sweetly when told her room was ready. As she maneuvered her walker to the elevator, I provided a visual description of her tiny room, including the eyelet sheets that had been hung on her window. "I love it," she stated with the enthusiasm of an eight-year-old having just been presented with a new puppy.
      "Mrs. Jones, you haven't seen the room .... just wait."
      "That doesn't have anything to do with it," she replied. "Happiness is something you decide on ahead of time. Whether I like my room or not doesn't depend on how the furniture is arranged...it's how I arrange my mind. I already decided to love it ..."It's a decision I make every morning when I wake up. I have a choice; I can spend the day in bed recounting the difficulty I have with the parts of my body that no longer work, or get out of bed and be thankful for the ones that do. Each day is a gift, and as long as my eyes open I'll focus on the new day and all the happy memories I've stored away .....just for this time in my life.
      Old age is like a bank account .....you withdraw from what you've put in . So, my advice to you would be to deposit a lot of happiness in the bank account of memories. Thank you for your part in filling my Memory bank. I am still depositing.
      Remember the five simple rules to be happy:
      1. Free your heart from hatred.
      2. Free your mind from worries.
      3. Live simply.
      4. Give more.
      5. Expect less.
      FAMILY  
      The Company
      we are working for could easily replace us in a matter of days. But the family we left behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives.
      And come to think of it, we pour ourselves more into work than into our own family, an unwise investment indeed, don't you think?
      So what is behind the story?
      Do you know what the word FAMILY means?

      FAMILY = (F)ATHER (A)ND (M)OTHER (I) (L)OVE (Y)OU

      Good morning all!  Whew! we survived the storms here last night.  It seems it was thundering and lightening all night long with lots of rain hitting the windows.  I walked outside this morning and there are swimming pools everywhere.  But, thank God, not in my basement!

      Marilyn ~ It seems to me that ALL holidays are lonesome when you are single.  Like Friday nights and eating out.  That is family night and here you are alone or with a friend.  But I had those happy times so I have to remember them.  Also take a friend out to eat tomorrow.  You might just make her day as well as yours.

      Today is our day to have lunch at a Chinese place with the people who built my deck.  Dennis and Julie are so sweet....maybe it will rub off on Jerry... ;D  Then my DIL asked if we would be available tonight for them to take me out to eat.  So we are going to a steak house tonight.  Also one of my nieces and great-niece are coming to Ivalou's tonight so I want to be sure and see them.  So a busy day!

      I pray that all of you have a wonderful day with our Lord.

      Well, what a chatty bunch you've all been today!!!

      Great to have two celebrations too!

      I got online this morning and was paged by an old friend from 1957 and he told me that the pastor who married Jack and I passed away the other day and the funeral services are this morning but about 4 hours away!

      So that was sad for me to learn that.   I was just asking about Sam when I was at Toronto Baptist Seminary graduation with Janice and everyone I asked said how well he was doing and happy to be still preaching.

      We were the first large wedding he ever did and he was so nervous that day.  That was a good day back in 1961.


      Well, I have to go out and spread a lot of earth around.  I got two huge bags sitting in my driveway and one is for the lawn so I better get at it.  It's supposed to rain tomorrow so that will help it settle down.


      I'll be back when it's time to have a coffee break and you can be sure that while I'm out there I'll be praying for you all.

      Check our Missionary Corner.  There's an email in there you should all see from Lebanon.

      TTFN as Anthony would say!

      Papa John

      Marilyn, thank you so much for sharing the email about the elderly lady who decided she would be happy.  I am a firm believer in a person making up his/her mind to accept what comes their way.  The key line for me in the email was, "Happiness is something you decide on ahead of time. Whether I like my room or not doesn't depend on how the furniture is arranged...it's how I arrange my mind."

      Looks like we are going to have a nice day here.

      I'm sold out and committed to go all the way with Jesus.  He is my lord, and savior, and I love him because he first loved me.  The more I look to him, the more deeply I fall in love with him.  He has done marvelous things in me, and through me. I'm awesomely created in HIS image, and I'm filled with his spirit.  It's Christ in me, the hope of glory.  I'm a warrior, a victorious warrior, coming against powers and principalities and wickedness in high places. God has given us ALL things that pertain unto righteousness....hallelujah!  He's worthy to be praised, and worshiped and adored.

      Coffee Break Time!!!

      I don't know how many wheel barrow loads of earth I've moved!!!  It's supposed to rain tomorrow so I'm hoping to get this done today so that the rain will get it to sink down.

      It's so good to see you here, Grayce!  I've just read Janet's devotion again and what a great message it is too!


      I've heard from several over the past month that they could login but then couldn't post.

      I've suggested to a few that after typing in their name and password that they tick the little box "Stay Logged In" and that might help and it worked for Francy Lou today so maybe if you're reading this and you've been finding the same problem, try ticking that box.

      Thought for Today

      Somebody said your mother
      knows you love her, so you
      don't need to tell her.







      . . . Somebody isn't a mother.

      "Click for Waterloo Wellington, Ontario Forecast"

      Papa John

      Al, and Joan, thanks for the suggestion of Vax D.  I have read up on it.  Looks like it is still controversial and that Medicare and other insurance will not pay for it.

      And again, thanks for the Happy Birthday wishes.  Tomorrow Martha is taking us out to a great Mexican restaurant, for my birthday, and Cornelia's Mother's Day.
