April Showers Bring May Flowers...

Remember the old saying, "April showers bring May flowers?" It is so true and we are so thankful for the showers.

We've been working and preparing the ground. Now we just need to get the planting done. It is starting to get exciting in the garden.

Also, I just love all the green around us and I just love the changing of the seasons. I'm always ready for the new season. Each one is a blessing of it's own. After all God planned it that way.

Perfect Patience...

"But let patience have her perfect work that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing." James 1:4

Who Cares What Others Think?

Who cares what others think? It's not what they think of us that matters, it's what God thinks of us. In the end... that's all that matters.

I don't know why we care so much what others think because what matter's most in the Christian's life is what God thinks. We live for Him, we live by His word and we have a glorious future.

"But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you." Matthew 6:33

Praise be to God!

Easter Blessings...

The True Gospel...

I love it when I find articles or commentators that think along the lines that I do. I found this article today titled, "The Cheap Grace Of Today's America." I know where people are coming from when they say salvation is a free gift, but you know, it wasn't. We are right now in the Easter season. Jesus paid the price... He gave His life for us, He suffered, died and rose again that we might live. Yes, it is free to us if we accept it, but it came with a great price.

It does concern me that so many churches are frivolous with gifts. People have been getting saved for about 2,000 years without drawings, prizes, lotteries or gifts. They needed forgiveness of their sins and peace of heart. For example, there is a large church in Texas giving autos, tv's and furniture among things as prizes or gifts if you come to Easter service. Well, where does it end? How can these churches ever beat the year before? I certainly don't think this is the way to go. I just feel concerned about it, but that's me.

I'm just thankful God loves us and will save us. To me that's the greatest gift of all.

Good Friday Thoughts...

I watched several versions of different clips of The Passion today and felt like I would like to share this one with you it was so moving... The song is the Via Dolorosa.

Blessings to you this Good Friday!

America Has Some Great People...

Check this out... Real American Stories hosted by Sarah Palin on Fox News Channel, April 4, 2010. Stories of Americans from all walks of life who have uplifting personal stories to tell. It is so refreshing to know that there is something good and wholesome that Americans can view.

It is so fitting that Sarah Palin should be hosting this. She has been an inspiration by overcoming attacks on her and her family from all directions. Truly, a courageous woman herself. She is perfect for hosting this show.
