“I CAME THAT THEY MAY HAVE LIFE, AND HAVE IT ABUNDANTLY.” ~ JOHN 10:10
THERE WERE MORE Christmas gifts to open, but my wife, Kate, announced, “Okay, everyone, time to get ready.” Kate is the rector at our small Episcopal church, and she had to lead a morning service.
I gritted my teeth. Why, I wondered, can’t we be like normal families? Everything is different in a clergy household. Sunday is a workday, holidays are workdays. Saturdays are sermon-perfecting days, and every week seems to bring some fresh reason why the rector needs to be out several evenings in a row. I’m not always good-natured about this situation. We got dressed, and our son, Benji, climbed into his stroller. Walking along the quiet streets, I had to admit it was nice to be outside ~ cool air, bright sun, hillsides tawny with winter-brown grass.
A couple dozen people gathered in the sanctuary. Those wonderful Bible verses were read: “Now the birth of Jesus the Messiah took place in this way.” We gathered around the altar for Communion. I looked around at everyone’s warm, happy faces. Taking the bread and wine, I felt foolish and glad at the same time: foolish for begrudging this wonderful life at the heart of God’s work in the world; glad that my church community, and Kate, loved me anyway.
Teach me to be thankful at all times, Lord.
“Christmas is the season of joy; of holiday greetings exchanged, of gift-giving, and of families united.”
“God has promised that He will never leave you or forsake you. No matter what you go through in life, you don’t have to go through it alone.” ~ Joyce Meyer

Nothing satisfies like Jesus !…♥
♥ Faith Full ~ If YOU could view yourself through the eyes of Jesus, YOU would know how precious you truly are ♥
I am no longer anxious about anything, as I realize the Lord is able to carry out His will, and His will is mine. It makes no matter where He places me, or how. That is rather for Him to consider than for me; for in the easiest positions He gives me His grace, and in the most difficult, His grace is suffice ~(Artist: Sam Timm)~
Always TRUST in the Lord! He has wonderful plans for your life if you allow Him room to be top priority as Lord of your life. He desires to prosper you in ways that you can not even comprehend. He wants to give you hope and a future that will be fulfilling…TRUST HIM!
“Prayer is the risen Jesus coming in with His resurrection power, given free rein in our lives, and then using His authority to enter any situation and change things.”

“Today be thankful and think how rich you are. Your family is priceless, your time is gold and your health is wealth.”
I am only one, but still I am one.
I cannot do everything,
but still I can do SOMETHING
and just because I cannot do everything…
I will not refuse to do the something
that I can do!.*•♥*¨`*•ღღ
Let your light shine – whether you’re a candle in a corner or a lighthouse on a hill.
“Nothing can bring a real sense of security into the home except true love.”

“The garden of the world has no limits
Except in your mind.
Its presence is more beautiful than the stars
With more clarity
Than the polished mirror of your heart.”

Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast,
It is not proud. It does not dishonor others,
It is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered,
It keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil
but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
~Corinthians 13:4-8 (NIV)
