When You Don’t Know What To Say

Some of my family members have just experienced the worst flooding in their state of Louisiana.  I have seen pictures, read stories and saw how devastating this flood was.  I really don’t know what to say about those going through this natural disaster.  Some have lost loved ones while others lost their homes and other possessions.  Continue reading

Good Choice


image

Oops I did it again. I walked by the various booths  in the  expo hall where I saw lots of good things. I stopped at a table that had two shirts on them. One said good, the other said bad. I chose bad almost immediately, not just because they were out of my size in the good shirts but because that’s the message I chose to display to the world. While the purpose of the t-shirt giveaway was to promote a TV show, I had no real specific purpose for choosing the shirt that said bad.  I thought deeper about my choice. Was that really a good choice? I decided after receiving my free shirt that I needed to use this advertisement in a way that will honor God. I thought to myself “go on with yo bad self” and decided that promoting God’s goodness was a good choice and most definitely a better choice. God is always good and He loves and accepts me even when I choose bad over good.  From t-shirts to the everyday testing of my faith I am sending a message about the goodness of God. So today, I am wearing a shirt that says bad but feeling good all because of God’s amazing love and grace.

Psalm 86:5 (ESV) For you O Lord are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you.

Psalm 145:9 (ESV) The Lord is good to all, and his mercy is over all that he has made.

“On Support”

In support of my friend who always reminds us to keep on thanking, take a look at the latest post from Hertistine Washington.

Keep on Thanking

“Thanking God for Support”

Did you know there are so many supports in life we rarely give thanks for, or thought to during the course of a day? We rarely think of their value as we hurriedly go on our way. How often do we think about the desk we write on, or the chair we sit in, as we pull up to take a rest, or a test? Lord, I thank you for a chair and desk.

How often do we  considered the kitchen counter that’s use to prepare our meals, as we cut, chop, and saute, at our own time and will? What about the stove, that holds and provides heat to our pots and pans, as we fry, boil, and bake, to make tasty food from other lands? Lord, I thank you for a kitchen counter.

Have we thought about our beds, as we lie down every night, supporting our body, arms, legs. . .and head? What a restful sight!…
