Life Beyond A Phone Screen

I just recently came across this blog and I’m so happy I did. This post that I’m sharing couldn’t have come at a better time. Recently I deleted facebook off my iphone, go some what off the grid, and get back to a simpler time when a shared cup of coffee and a warm conversation was face to face and not screen to screen. Isn’t it time that we all reconnect with each other? I hope you read this post and decide to put the phone down and look someone in the eyes again and smile. God bless you today, Jay

His dying breath has brought me life. I know that it is finished.
If His grace is an ocean we’re all sinking. 
Hope is stirring. Hearts are yearning for You.
Freely You’ve bled for us. 
Your love never fails. It never gives up. 

Across the hall my brother’s tenor voice sings these words as his fingers strum his six-string guitar. Those sweet, encouraging words full of promise and a life worth living.

“…I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” John 10:10

The photo above is a photo of my pastor’s 3 week old baby boy, Christian. At times I forget that I was that small once. As life does happen, the adolescent years arrived too quickly. I fought them as much as I could until maturity prevailed. Before I knew it baby dolls, barbies, and dress-up clothes were in the attic. And I had entered a new stage in…

Pray for all things, God is listening and he knows our needs before we ask.

I Just received this amazing story and prayer, as soon as i read it, i knew  i had to share with you. Thanks to loving sister Sara for emailing it to me!  Be inspired and uplifted. 🙂

This is a story written by a doctor who worked in Africa .

One night I had worked hard to help a mother in the labor ward; but in spite of all we could do, she died, leaving us with a tiny, premature baby and a crying two-year-old daughter. We would have difficulty keeping the baby alive; as we had no incubator (we had no electricity to run an incubator).

We also had no special feeding facilities. Although we lived on the equator, nights were often chilly with treacherous drafts. One student midwife went for the box we had for such babies and the cotton wool that the baby would be wrapped in.

Good Time Stories

There is something that is important to each and every one of us. It is something that once we experience it, we can never get it back…and that is…time. There are so many times in our lives that we wish that we had more time doing something we enjoy or spending time with friends and people we love. Unfortunately, there are those moments which we wish we never experienced and would want nothing more than to totally forget that they ever existed.

Today’s story gives us a heart wrenching reminder to use the time that we are given in our lives to fully spend our time and focus on the good things in life.

While at the park one day, a woman sat down next to a man on a bench near a playground. “That’s my son over there,” she said, pointing to a little…

A Thanksgiving Thought

Well worth the read!

The Theologizer

[ Colossians 1:19-20 ]

“For God was pleased to have all His fullness dwell in Him, and through Him to reconcile to Himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through His blood, shed on the cross.”

Every Thanksgiving we usually make lists of things that we are thankful for. We find all the bits of grace and mercy God had shown us through the years. We remind ourselves of major events, replaying them as if they were yesterday, and we recall memories of minor events and smile thinking, “How did I forget that?”. Or we do as the hymn says and count our many blessings and name them one by one. But I’d like to pose a question: What if God’s only gift to you was His saving grace? Would you still be thankful then?

After World War II, U.S. General Ike Eisenhower was on an airplane going home. Waiting…

Thanksgiving Quotes

This is too good not to share.

Trails of Life

I hope everyone is doing well this time of the year. God bless all of you and thanks for reading these posts. Here is a short collection of what I simply call Thanksgiving Quotes. A good mixture of inspirational and humorous thoughts related to the turkey-eating, family-gathering, football-watching, and counting-your-blessings season. Oh, and I just about forgot to mention deer hunting–hey, I’m right there with the Pilgrims.

Pride slays thanksgiving, but a humble mind is the soil out of which thanks naturally grow. A proud man is seldom a grateful man, for he never thinks he gets as much as he deserves.

Henry Ward Beecher

Thou hast given so much to me,
Give one thing more, – a grateful heart;
Not thankful when it pleaseth me,
As if Thy blessings had spare days,
But such a heart whose pulse may be Thy praise.

George Herbert
