Let the year be given to God in its every moment!.
G. Campbell Morgan

From Chris Saunders



"Simon Peter, a servant and an Apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained such precious faith with us, through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ" 2 Peter 1:1


If Peter had began by saying.. An Apostle.. We would not have noticed, and at one time I imagine he would have, but a lot had happened to the old immature Peter, time and events had changed him just as it has changed us,
He had denied his Saviour, he had seen Jesus die a dreadful death, he had heard that his master had been resurrected, he had ran to the tomb, looked inside, and went away wondering, then he had more encounters with the truly risen Christ, the last one, being the most changing one.. Peter do you love Me? Three times the question came, three times he answered till there was no doubt left, he was forgiven, and was to get ready for Pentecost.
So now He begins.." Peter a Servant of Jesus Christ."
In the year that lies ahead if God spares us, let's put servant hood first, let us, like Peter not put ourselves first, but let us be Ambassadors for Christ, there is no greater calling for a child of God.
Peter ends this verse with a gospel message.. Saying
that we have obtained our
precious faith.. By the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ,
It is indeed by grace that we are saved, so let us be gracious to those who do not yet know Him.

For those of you who have asked: I called Janet's daughter today.  She is fine, and so is Darrel.  She is having computer problems, so that is why we haven't heard from her.  I pray all continues to be well with her!

:) Hello everyone!  Nice to know I have been missed!  Darrel and I are both fine now, after a season of having Covid, losing ones dear to us (friends, not relatives) and spending much more time at home than we ever have before.  Please forgive my long absence.

Judy, how in the world did you know how to get in touch with my sweet daughter Diane?  When she called me after speaking to you, I was shocked, and am still puzzled.  Thank you for caring so much you would take the time to do that.  Now that I am back, I will try harder to stay in touch.  :thumbsup:  :thumbsup:

My computer problems can usually be chalked up to "operator error."

Janet remember Pat had us put our info into the Mods page?  I went there and sent you a text message on the number you have listed.. Waited for you to get it, when I didn't hear back I decided to call your daughter!  She seemed puzzled but willing to pass my message on. Everyone here was concerned! 

About computer problems, I miss Larry.  He seemed to know very quickly where the problem was and how to fix it!

We in Ontario Canada are again shut down, due to the omicron variant. schools closed, little inside dining or even visiting family.  It took our leader all of 30 seconds to make the decision.... Several people that are in my friends list who are the sickest, are the ones who have had the vaxx, double jab.

Thankfully John and our families are well, I'm sure we will stay well. We avoid big area meetings.  Our pastor has been hyper vigilant.  He keeps chairs for those who come to church, well separated. I have thanked him many times that he is following the government mandates.  We have a lady well known in the area who will be 100 in a few days!

That is all folks!

"Saying..where is the promise of His coming...."
"But Beloved be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord like a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day."
"He is long-suffering towards us , not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." 2Peter 3.
Oh the patience of our loving God, no one has patience like our God, He sees everything, hears everything, knows everything, and yet people think that they are doing things in secret, others think that they can hurt and harm others, and get away with it, because God either does not exist or doesn't care enough to do anything.
This can be a problem for believers too by the way, ..why doesn't God intervene?
I don't have the answer to that, but all I know is..when God does intervene then lives are changed, souls are saved, hearts are cleansed , New Life appears in deadbeats,
I only wish it happened more often, I myself can vouch for the New Birth and to being sealed by the Spirit for Eternity, and I am so very glad that He captured me and made me His own, if only we could get through to people that God desires that they repent of their sins and receive a new start, but they are happy as they are and heading toward the great big pit. Unfortunately only a comparative few shall be saved according to our Lord.
We all have family and friends that we have prayed for for years, and their hearts are just as hard now as ever .personally I don't pray as much for them as I used to, God knows all about them, and He knows if He is going to save them or not, they are adults and are responsible for their future life. He has given far more time than they need

Paul.
"As in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in Which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures unto their own destruction."2 Peter 3.

To truly understand scripture which was written under the inspiration of God the Holy Spirit, you must be indwelt by that same Holy Spirit, that is why we are living in unprecedented times, today there are  more churches than there ever were, one for everybody, if you don't like what one is teaching then just move until you find the one that suits you. But scripture is being twisted more and more, ..name it and claim it.. "churches" abound and are thriving, all sorts of cults and isms are deceiving people. So my friends be filled with the Spirit, as God commands, Paul's letters are deep in places, that's why he talks about milk versus strong meat , but all the scriptures are for all the Christians, we have no excuse in saying some parts of the Bible are difficult to understand, ask God to open them to you, read other people's take on them, weigh them up, don't give up, the secret things belong to God but what He reveals belongs to us.

Carol, I'm so glad you, your son and the firemen were there to rescue your dear Don!  How scary!

Marilyn--Good to see your face again--it's been a long time!

My Darrel is feeling really bad tonight.  Don't know what's wrong, but praying it passes quickly.  We have both had Covid already.

My best friend passed away Dec. 8th from Covid, and I am missing her so much!!  As Dolly and Kenny sang, "You can't make old friends."  So true.
Dee and I had been friends for over 40 years.

I pray you are all doing well, and pray God's blessings and protection over each of you.
With love, Janet

Thank you, Judy, for your January thoughts. I appreciated them! Hope everyone's enjoying their new year. Our family came down with covid 2 days after Christmas. I got hit the hardest - exhaustion and body pain, but we're all almost back to 100% again. Looking forward to making friends and getting to know people here in the coming year!
Sincerely,
Jenny    S:o)

Jenny!!  Welcome, welcome, welcome!  So good to have you join us!

My husband has Covid for the second time; so discouraging.  We both had it in November.

And the horrible wind is blowing about 65 MPH today.  My most UNfavorite weather.  But God's in His heaven and for that I am grateful.

Janet did you and Darrell get your vaccine?  Both Keith and I got 2 Moderna shot before we left Oregon. and the Phizer booster here in California. Did you know that I moved back to ca to be closer to my family? It is so good to see you are back. I sure missed you.I wrote you and didn't get any answer. How are your eyes doing. Mine are  getting to the point that it affects my handwriting to write checks. I can't see the lighter fonts on the computer either. I have magnifying glasses laying all over the house and Gilbert bought me a lighted on for Christmas.

Keith is getting more and more confused, he wanders around the house at night so I lock my bedroom door to keep him out and from turning on the light. It pains me to have to lock to door at my age but it is better than getting very angry with him and saying not so nice things. I am not a nice person when startled awake in the middle of the night.

I fell Monday in the kitchen and  tore some ligaments and stretched some tendons in my right leg. My knee has an beautiful bruise of many colors. I thank God nothing was broken. So I will definitely be at church and on the stage singing tomorrow.

As a footnote I see in reading back that no one missed me even though I wasn't here for awhile.I have been a member of this site for 20+ years

Quote from: Janet on January 14, 2022, 05:03:38 PMHello Janet! THANK YOU so much. I'm sorry to hear about your husband. Is he going to be okay? Kansas can be hard with that wind in the winter. We're in Lancaster County, PA. It's always humid here - hot humid in the summer and cold humid in the winter (clammy). Lol. It was cold yesterday, but I could get away with a vest outdoors; but today it is absolutely freezing out there (17 degrees) with a strong wind. WEll, hope the rest of your month goes well, Janet. Thanks for your note above. I appreciated it.
Your Friend,
Jenny   S:o)

Marilyn I missed you.  I was thinking your time was taken up with your hubby and family.. If you had gone much longer with our being here for a coffee and chat I would have phoned, PMed or emailed you.  You have a lot going on in your life and you are in my prayers.

Thank you Judy. I always have time for CP. I do check the posts every few days even if I don't post.

I am still in a great deal of pain from my fall last week. I did  order a Medical Safety necklace that works by Blue tooth and comes with a GPS locator that is carried in the pocket or purs. I can also use it for Keith. There is also a bracelet  that come with it to wear while the necklace is being charged. It is Medical Guardian by brand name.

I was recently remember all the original's that we have lost. Judy McKenna. Pat, Al;, Larry ,Liz, etc  Jenny  in the UK is still alive I think, Jane stops in every now and then.It looks like there are only of us original poster who come regularly
