A Christmas Poem by Pastor Jim Kamerer
Twas the night before Christmas and as I looked round my tent,
I couldn't believe all the money I'd spent
For trains and dolls, for trinkets and toys
Some for the girls and some for the boys.

I looked round once more to be sure things were right;
The kids were all in bed for the night.
I set up the track for the train I bought Ted,
The train went round twice and the battery went dead.

I put on my cap, my gloves, and my coat;
I went to Ames and over to Zayre.
You guess it my friend, no batteries there!
As I left the store a thought came to me,I had one in the remote of the color TV.

Well, I placed that remote in my wife's favorite chair
I was ready for Christmas with hours to spare.
When out came my wife and punched that remote
And then said to me, "The TV's broke!"

So on with the coat, the gloves, and the cap
out in the cold about ready to snap.
I went to K-Mart and stood in that line
From 8:35 'til a quarter past nine.

As I came to the checkout, my heart leaped with glee --
There was that one lonesome battery just waiting for me.
When from my behind I seen this hand slip
And grab that battery with a real tight grip.

I wheeled around and what did I see?
This giant of a man glaring down at me.
Well, I remembered an ad I had seen on TV
Buy a Big Mac, get your batteries free.

So, I bought me a burger I didn't want...
They were out of batteries, so on with hunt.
I finally found one at Servi-Star,
Paid for my purchase and made for my car.

When I entered the door of my humble shack,
My wife said, "What's this battery for I found in a sack?"
I was out there in the press, the push, and the greed
To buy me a battery I didn't even need.

At last I relaxed in my easy chair,
When this still small voice came out of somewhere.
"You're ready for Christmas with toys, tinsel, and tree
You've got it all together, but what about me?"

I fell on my knees and cried, "God, what have I done?"
I got caught up in the madness and neglected your Son.
The best gift of all you've given for free
Your Son, Jesus Christ, for sinners like me.
You sent Him to suffer the shame and the loss,
To shed his life's blood for me on the cross.
Well friend, I'll never forget ere I rest 'neath the sod,
The greatest of gifts is given by God.

A seasonal poem..


Out my window I can see
Leaves are brown as they can be,
Though it's Wintertime for sure
Dressed in finest of decor.

All seem sure to take a bow
Dancing in the wind for now,
Leaves that once belonged to Fall
Dancing brown at Winter's call.

Each are patterned and with grace,
Some look like the finest lace,
Changing colors in a while,
Seasons in the latest style.

Dancing, blowing in the wind
Leaves designed " and all by Him"
God, our maker, up above
In His wisdom and His love.

~~By Katherine Smith Matheney.~~

Do you believe?

There was this Christian lady that had to do a lot of traveling for her business, so she did a lot of flying. Flying made her nervous, so she always took her Bible along with her to read and it helped relax her.
One time, she was sitting next to a man. When he saw her pull out her Bible, he gave a little chuckle and went back to what he was doing.
After awhile, he turned to her and asked, "You don't really believe all that stuff in there do you?"
The lady replied, "Of course I do. It is the Bible."
He said, "Well, what about that guy that was swallowed by that whale?"
She replied, "Oh, Jonah. Yes, I believe that, it is in the Bible."
He asked, "Well, how do you suppose he survived all that time inside the whale?"
The lady said, "Well, I don't really know. I guess when I get to heaven, I will ask him."
"What if he isn't in heaven?" the man asked sarcastically.
"Then you can ask him." replied the lady.

Psalm 14:1 ........The fool hath said in his heart, [There is] no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, [there is] none that doeth good.
Revelation 20:15 -And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
John 14:1,2,3- Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.In my Father's house are many mansions: if [it were] not [so], I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, [there] ye may be also.
It is easy to be saved. Just take God at his word and realise you are a sinner and call upon Jesus Christ to save you. You'll never regret it- never. And if your already saved and headed for heaven then i look forward to meeting you there!
We had a wonderful opportunity to see a little girl in our home Church receive Christ as Saviour. Her name is Courtney Lemunion and she is 9 years old. What a blessing it was to witness this.
See; Salvation is so easy that even a 9 year old can understand and accept it. So if your not saved and reading this, I encourage you to recieve Christ as your Saviour today before it's too late.By not choosing to accept him then you have already made a choice and hell is the only place left.God doesn't want you in hell but the Devil sure does. None of us are promised our next breath, so please choose him today and you'll have an assurance of going to heaven when you open your eyes in eternity and not only that but you'll have a real purpose in this life too. That's all for now.

Why the Bible?

I found this article about the Bible and thought i would share it here.
Whether you accept and believe in its teachings or not, it cannot be denied that the Bible is the most remarkable, amazing, absolutely unique book that has ever been written.

Of course, most people today sort of toss it out and dismiss it.

However if you have an open mind and are sincerely searching for the truth, then you will then discover that the Bible is not merely some "churchy" handbook, but that it is the most wonderful, supernatural, miraculous, amazing, marvelous Book in the whole world. The Bible has the answers to every question we have concerning where we came from, how we got here, why we're here, how to survive and be happy while here, where we are going, and how to love and have true happiness forever.

But before deciding whether or not to accept and believe this amazing book, consider the following seven facts that set it aside as a truly unique volume:

1. The Bible is Unique in its Continuity
It was written over a 1,6OO year time-span by over 40 authors from every walk of life, including kings, peasants, philosophers, fishermen, shepherds, soldiers, poets, statesmen, scholars, etc. Nevertheless, from beginning to end, its authors spoke on hundreds of controversial subjects with harmony and continuity outlining one unfolding story: God's love for man.

2. The Bible Has Been Read By More People Than Any Other Book.
It has outsold every book that has ever been written, and it still sells more copies every year than any other book in the world. But of course the bestsellers lists won't dare acknowledge that in spite of all man's writings and foolishness and fiction and ridiculous interpretations of history and reality, the Bible still outsells them all, every year. Another unique and related fact is that the Bible was the first major book ever to be printed on Gutenberg's press.

3. The Bible Has Been Translated and Published In More Languages Than Any Other Book in Existence
As far back as 1966 the whole Bible had appeared in 240 languages and dialects, and one or more of its books appeared in 739 additional ones.

4. The Bible, Compared With All Other Ancient Writings, Has More Manuscript Evidence Than Any Ten Pieces of Classical Literature Combined.
Although originally written on perishable materials, having to be recopied by hand for thousands of years before the invention of the printing press, its style, correctness and accuracy has been preserved as no other book in all history. The Jews had special classes of scholars within their culture whose sole duty was to preserve and transmit the books of their Bible (the Old testament) with perfect accuracy, counting the very consonants, vowels, syllables and words per manuscript as a means of double-checking. Literally thousands of ancient manuscripts of the books of the New Testament (many in the original languages) have been unearthed which prove, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the Scriptures have come down through the ages to us just as they were originally written.

5. The Bible Has Withstood Vicious Attacks By Its Enemies As No Other Book Has Many have tried to burn it, destroy it and outlaw it, from the days of the Roman emperors to some present-day antichrist countries. Its very existence today and the fact that it's teachings and truths have been preserved despite the countless campaigns and tirades against it is in itself miraculous.

6. Discovery After Discovery By Modern Archaeologists Have Confirmed and Proven the Bible's Absolute Accuracy and Have Proven It To Be a Valid Source of History
Archaeologists following Old Testament references have rediscovered whole nations and resurrected entire peoples that the skeptics and critics once said were nonexistent or imaginary. In fact, it can be stated categorically that not one archaeological discovery has ever contradicted or cast doubt on a Biblical reference - all have confirmed it's accuracy.

7. The Bible is the Only Volume Ever Produced Which Contains a Large Amount of Prophecies
These accurately predict the future of individual nations, peoples, cities, and the coming of One who was to be the Messiah. Although the ancient world had many different devices for determining the future, nowhere in all of Greek and Latin literature can there be found any real specific prophecy of a great historic event to come in the distant future. But the Bible is full of countless, detailed, specific prophecies, all of which have been miraculously fulfilled and come true except, of course, the final end time prophecies which are either to be fulfilled in the near future or are coming to pass right now.

What an amazing and remarkable book. Yet so many people today, who consider themselves so smart and so knowledgeable, ignore the Bible completely. Time and time again we talk to people who've been through years of college and university and have read hundreds and hundreds of books -- volumes of textbooks, religious books, philosophical books and all kinds of books -- yet have never even cracked open the Bible, the most fascinating book in the world. A book in which you can find almost anything: drama, love, hate, peace, war, romance, poetry, prophecy, history, mystery, etc., etc.

Just think about it. Words of wisdom from thousands of years ago, from the days before Moses. It's such an important book, and one of the oldest books in the world yet, a lot of "educated" people don't even bother to read it. They waste time on all of their complicated and confused theories while neglecting the very Words of Life, the Bible, which is so simple, direct and to the point.

If you were going on a long journey and didn't already know the way, you would bring along a map, wouldn't you? Well, you are on a long journey, and the One who does know the way has instructed some of His men to draw a detailed map so you won't get lost and so you can learn the right way to operate down here and ultimately make it safely to your final destination.

But to say you don't have time to read God's map, the Bible, is like a driver going on a long journey and saying, "Well, I'm in such a hurry to get there I don't have time to look at the map." If you'll just take the Bible and simply read it, believe it, and follow it, you will be on the right path and will wind up in the right place.

And that is actually the greatest proof that the Biblike really is the miraculous, supernatural Word of God Himself - it works. So why not try it? It's the greatest, most enduring, wisest, most truthful book in the whole world. One that you can really trust. I'm sure that you will find it an absolutely inexhaustible source of wisdom and knowledge, out of which you will constantly find "treasures new and old." (Mt.13:52) --Beautiful.

Of course the most wonderful thing about the Bible is that through its words, we can get to know its Author. For the Bible is God's great love letter to us. Its Life-giving words make it the greatest book in the world, with the only Author in the world that can guarantee life, love, happiness, and Heaven forever through simply reading it and believing in its main Character, the One Who loved us so much that He gave His Own life to save us - Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

All of the wonderful, thrilling things that you read about Jesus doing in the Bible can happen today as well for Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today and forever. (Heb. 13:8) And, just as He spoke to men of old, His prophets of the past, so He is still alive and speaks to us today through His Word, thank God. In fact, He has spoken to and given us a lot of Words for today, this end time in which we are now living.

So take the Bible and sincerely pray, "Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law". (Ps.119:18.) Take the wonderful words of Jesus in the Gospels and read them -- not as fairy tales of the past, but as God's Word for you today. And, see how inspiring, uplifting and encouraging the Truth of the Word of God can be. In the beautiful Gospel of John particularly, you will find the spiritual depths of the Love of God and His Salvation for you.

Have you received God's love through Jesus? Have you tasted the wonderful, soul-satisfying waters of His Wonderful Word? If not, receive Jesus into your heart personally by simply asking Him to come into your life, to forgive you of all your sins and give you His love and peace and free gift of eternal life. Then you cannot only read His Word with understanding, but you'll have the love and the strength to obey it and to share His Truth and Love and Wonder Working Words with others who need them too.

"Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path"(Psalms119:105)

The Christian faith is never a guarantee against trouble. But it is a guarantee against defeat when trouble comes.

"He paid a debt he didn't owe, Because I owed a debt I couldn't pay"

John 14:1,2,3... Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.In my Father's house are many mansions: if [it were] not [so], I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, [there] ye may be also.

What's been happening this week....

My husband and 2 boys are in Scotland since Sunday and they will be returning home tomorrow.They have gone over to enjoy some special preaching services. I must say the house has been soooo quiet in their absence; i would much rather have them at home with all the noise around me. I miss them alot even though they have only gone for a few days.Can't wait to see them tomorrow.
Anyway aside from that Jade and I have been doing a fair bit of walking this past 2 days.
Yesterday we walked to a tescos with our guard dog following us.No we don't have a dog but there is a dog called Tootsie that belongs to a lady who lives up the street and it has taken up residence in our front garden every day. The reason i call it our guard dog is because it bites any strangers who come near the door. Very handy when the Mormons or Jehovah's witnesses decide to knock...just joking. Well we have grown very fond of this wee dogie and would like to keep her but i don't think the owner would agree to that. Ah well you never know.
We went into town today and did some shopping; I just love to spend money on the kids so we got some clothes and other bits 'n' pieces. After walking from one shop to another we got very wet with the heavy rain so we stopped at a cafe and had a wee cup of tea and a bun to re-fuel and warm us up a bit. We took a bus back home and Jade really enjoyed it, so much so she wasn't shy in saying loudly "Mommy this is my first time on a bus" so everyone could hear her.
Stan sent me some pictures from Scotland via his mobile phone so i thought i would post some.
Those 2 wee people are my boys Marky and JJ. This was taken outside deep sea world in Edinburgh.

JJ and Marky with funny looking hair do's or should i say hats.

Pastor Mark is looking a bit scarey in this picture. I wonder if he was speaking to his wife-to-be in this photo and if so did she know what he had on his head????

Urgent prayer request...

Brother Paul Forrest from Virginia needs our prayers at this time as he has taken ill with serious heart problems. Please remember him in your prayers and also his wife Judy at this time.

Gone to be with Christ which is far better....

We got news today that Pat's Father Alfie Moore went home to be with the Lord. Pat is Steve's wife (steves statements) and a Sister in Christ. I would ask you to pray for them at this difficult time; it is not easy but it is a blessing that he was saved. It's a blessing to know that it is not Goodbye but "til we meet again".

Matthew 5:4 Blessed [are] they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

Proverbs 18:10 The name of the LORD [is] a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.

Psalm 116:15 Precious in the sight of the LORD [is] the death of his saints.

1 Thessalonians 4:13,14 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

Pic's of our day at Dublin zoo...

Here are some pictures taken when we were at Dublin zoo. Notice how many poeple were waiting to get into the zoo. We were near the back of the line. This was only some of the people; the crowd was much bigger.

Flamingos-I thought these were so pretty
What could this be?Hmmm..
Feeding time at the Zoo...
These guys were pretty funny;
we spent a good amount of time watching them playing around

We actually supplied these monkeys with their bananas;
they were supposed to be for OUR lunch but
my husband just couldn't resist throwing them in.
Not to mention, ignoring the sign that read " Dont feed the animals"
but it was fun watching them.

Here is the big line we had to wait in.

Marky, Jade and JJ

The happy couple..

Here is a picture of the Pastor of our home Church with his wife-to-be Sis. Monica. You wouldn't believe how hard it is to get Pastor Mark to sit still for a picture; worse than a kid. I actually took another picture of them yesterday which i will try to get uploaded soon.
They will be married on the 7th of December and we are all looking forward to the big day.
They make a lovely couple. Congratulations you two!

Story behind the Hymn...

I found this on a website while searching the net. The site actually has a lot of hymns with the story telling you how the hymn came about.I found this very interesting so I've decided to post some of them on my blog now and again, starting with this one.
While I was at­tend­ing the World’s Fair in Chi­ca­go [Il­li­nois], Hen­ry Var­ley, a lay preac­her from Lon­don, said to Ma­jor Whit­tle: “I do not like the hymn ‘I need Thee ev­ery hour’ ve­ry well, be­cause I need Him ev­ery mo­ment of the day.
Soon af­ter Ma­jor Whit­tle wrote this sweet hymn… [He] brought the hymn to me in man­u­script a lit­tle lat­er, say­ing that he would give me the co­py­right of both the words and mu­sic if I would print for him five hund­red co­pies on fine pa­per, for dis­trib­ut­ing among his friends. His daugh­ter May Whit­tle, who lat­er be­came the wife of Will R. Moo­dy, com­posed the mu­sic. I did as Mr. Whit­tle wished; and I sent the hymn to Eng­land, where it was co­py­right­ed on the same day as at Wash­ing­ton.
In Eng­land the hymn be­came ve­ry pop­u­lar. Fall­ing in­to the hands of the well-known Rev. An­drew Mur­ray, of South Af­ri­ca, then vi­sit­ing Lon­don, he adopt­ed it as his fa­vo­rite hymn. A year lat­er Mr. Mur­ray vi­sit­ed North­field [Mas­sa­chu­setts], and while hold­ing a meet­ing for men in the church he re­marked, “If Sank­ey on­ly knew a hymn which I found in Lon­don, and would sing it, he would find that it em­brac­es my en­tire creed.” I was very anx­ious to know what hymn it was, and when he had re­cit­ed it I said to him: “Doc­tor, that hymn was writ­ten with­in five hun­dred yards of where we are stand­ing.”
For years Dr. Mur­ray had his wife sing this hymn in near­ly all his meet­ings. It al­so be­came a great fa­vo­rite in South Af­ri­ca dur­ing the war.

Dying with Jesus, by death reckoned mine;
Living with Jesus, a new life divine;
Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine,
Moment by moment, O Lord, I am Thine.

Moment by moment I’m kept in His love;

Moment by moment I’ve life from above;
Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine;
Moment by moment, O Lord, I am Thine.

Never a trial that He is not there,
Never a burden that He doth not bear,
Never a sorrow that He doth not share,
Moment by moment, I’m under His care.

Never a heartache, and never a groan,

Never a teardrop and never a moan;
Never a danger but there on the throne,
Moment by moment He thinks of His own.

Never a weakness that He doth not feel,
Never a sickness that He cannot heal;
Moment by moment, in woe or in weal,
Jesus my Savior, abides with me still.

New Blogger...

Just a quick note to let you all know that my mom has now created her very own blog. Please stop by her blog for a visit and say hello. You can either click the following link or else you can click the link i have to her blog on my blogs i like to visit link.

It's been a while....

I can't believe 3 weeks have gone by since my last post. Well i am glad to be able to update again. It's great to see the comments left on my last post; I want to thank each and every one of you for your encouraging words and of course your prayers. I hope you are all keeping OK.
The Lord got me through the surgery and apart from a few minor complications i am recovering. I have an infected hematoma under my wound which i am told is a blood clot that must have formed after some bleeding during surgery. The Doctors say my body should re-absorb it once the infection clears so they have adopted a wait and see approach. I am taking a strong antibiotic so Lord willing it will do it's job. I go back to the hospital this Wednesday to check on it.
I have to say i have enjoyed the rest whilst i have been recuperating; my mom and husband and the kids have been a great help. It is a bit frustrating not to able to do any heavy housework but hopefully it wont be too much longer before i can get back to normality. My poor little girl has had a lot of extra chores to do around the house but i know it's good for her. She makes me laugh sometimes with the remarks she comes out with; she always says when she gets married that she hopes her husband isn't messy.Sometimes she sounds like a grown woman. My wee Jade.The Lord has really blessed my husband and I with our kids. You can see a biGG difference in a child that is being brought up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord and a child who is left to himself. The Bible once again proven true.

I see that i have been tagged by three sisters to do the Eight things about me meme. Well i wont keep you waiting any longer; here goes........


1. Post rules before giving the facts
2. Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves
3. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
4. At the end of the your blog you need to tag some people and list their names. Leave them a comment on their blog, telling them they have been tagged and not to forget to read your blog.

1) I was saved when i was 17 years old.

2) I love driving

3) I have a terrible habit- nail biting.

4) I have 5 sisters and 2 brothers

5) My favourite book is the King James Bible

6) I have never travelled outside of the United Kingdom but would like to some day

7) I don't care much for hot weather

8) I am terrified of dogs


I enjoyed doing this meme. Thank you girls for tagging me! Now this is the part were I'm supposed to tag some people but as far as i can see every blogger i visit has been tagged so if your reading this and you've missed out.....Your it! I mean ...your tagged!

Have a blessed week!

Blogging break...

We have had a good week this week with the outreach in the Calgach centre in town. It has been refreshing to be able to attend the nightly services and it's a blessing that my mom was able to come along too. We've heard some good old fashioned Bible preaching.

I'm afraid i will not be posting for a while as i will be going into hospital on Wednesday to have surgery. I'm told it's a major op so i would really appreciate your prayers at this time.
I will have a 3/4 day hospital stay and then a recovery period of 4 - 6 weeks.
Please pray that the Lord will get me through it safely with no complications.
It's not a nice experience to go through but when you have the Lord on your side and brethren praying for you it makes it easier. So i thank you in advance for your prayers.

Blogger will still not let me post any pictures for some reason. I don't know if it's the computer or blogger to blame but hopefully I'll get it sorted out soon. I better go for now, it's getting late;
Hope you all have a great week.

God is good...

Psalm 100:5 For the LORD [is] good; his mercy [is] everlasting; and his truth [endureth] to all generations.
I want to thank you all for your prayers this past week. The Lord has answered yet again.
My mum came through surgery safely on Monday and she is recovering in the hospital. She is hoping to get home on Monday but we'll have to wait and see because her sugar levels are still up and down. She will see the diabetic doctor on Monday to see if he can do something with her medication to get her sugars to stay down. I'm just grateful to God that he took care of her through it.
We had to take Marky to the hospital last night again after he caught his fingers in the chain of his bike. He cut them pretty bad and had to have some stitches. They are not sure if he has a fracture or not because they said a line showed up on the x-ray and there not sure if it is a blood vessel or fracture...weird. The consultant radiologist will review his x-ray in a couple of days and they will call us if he can confirm a broken bone. But anyway they are treating him as if it is fractured and the poor wee man has his 2 fingers strapped and he has to wear a splint also. I have to take him to the nurse to check the wound for infection on Monday morning but he is on a strong antibiotic just in case. So we have had quite a time with hospital visits but still I'm thankful that it was nothing life threatening.
I have been trying to post some pictures but blogger will not co-operate with me at all so i'll have to try again some other time. You'll know if nothing gets posted that i'm still having problems with it. At least i can still update.

Saturday, June 23

I'm back...

I have to apologise for not updating this past few weeks and I'll give an update to some of what has been happening around here; i haven't got time to post everything that has went on......

Answered prayer: On my last post i asked you to pray for me as i went to have the mri scan....Well i had it done and the results came back normal so that was a blessing and another prayer answered. Thank you for praying for that.

A&E visit: We managed to visit accident and emergency with our youngest son Jeremiah when he closed the door on his finger.Thankfully he didn't break it but he did have to have a hole put in his nail to release the bleeding that was under his nail as a result of the injury.

Fun day's out: We have had a couple of nice family day's when we got to take the kids to a fun farm and also to Grianan Fort in Donegal which we enjoyed; i took some pictures so i will post them in the near future.

And finally: Our computer broke down last week just when i was about to update my blog so i was a little annoyed about that but we're back online again. I may not get to post very often over the next few weeks as my mother will be going into hospital on Tuesday and having surgery the following Monday. She was supposed to have it done this Monday but they said her blood sugars are too high to operate so they will keep her in hospital this week in an attempt to get them lowered. I would appreciate your prayers for her; her name is Esther. It will be a major surgery for her with all her health problems. I will be looking after her when she gets out for a week and then my sister will help out after that so i will be busyyyyy. Maybe the Lord needs for me to learn some patience. I would also ask you to pray for my husbands mom as we got a call this moring to say she was taken to hospital with breathing problems. She has a chronic disease caused by smoking and her condition has gotten worse this past few months. She needs to be saved so please pray for her and her husband. Their names are Mary and William.

MySpace Flower pictures and MyYearbook flower pictures!

Peter 1:24,25 .....For all flesh [is] as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

A Psalm for the day...

Psalm 37
1 <[A Psalm] of David.> Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.
2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.
3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; [so] shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
4 Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring [it] to pass.
6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.
9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.
10 For yet a little while, and the wicked [shall] not [be]: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it [shall] not [be].
11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
12 The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.
13 The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming.
14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, [and] to slay such as be of upright conversation.
15 Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.
16 A little that a righteous man hath [is] better than the riches of many wicked.
17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD upholdeth the righteous.
18 The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever.
19 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
20 But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD [shall be] as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.
21 The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth.
22 For [such as be] blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and [they that be] cursed of him shall be cut off.
23 The steps of a [good] man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.
24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth [him with] his hand.
25 I have been young, and [now] am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
26 [He is] ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed [is] blessed.
27 Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.
28 For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.
29 The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.
30 The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.
31 The law of his God [is] in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.
32 The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.
33 The LORD will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.
34 Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see [it].
35 I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.
36 Yet he passed away, and, lo, he [was] not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.
37 Mark the perfect [man], and behold the upright: for the end of [that] man [is] peace.
38 But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off.
39 But the salvation of the righteous [is] of the LORD: [he is] their strength in the time of trouble.
40 And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.

Please feel free to comment on these pics; all feedback welcome. Have a great day.

Putting God first...

I came across the following story while browsing through a website and I wanted to share it with you. It made me think on 2 scripture verses that have been on my mind lately; Psalm 37 verses 4 & 5. We need to put the Lord first in our lives and he will take care of our needs.
Paid In Full
A young man was getting ready to graduate from college. For many months he had admired a beautiful sports car in a dealer's showroom, and knowing his father could well afford it, he told him that was all he wanted.
As Graduation Day approached, the young man awaited signs that his father had purchased the car. Finally, on the morning of his graduation, his father called him into his private study. His father told him how proud he was to have such a fine son, and told him how much he loved him. He handed his son a beautifully wrapped gift box.
Curious, and somewhat disappointed, the young man opened the box and found a lovely, leather-bound Bible, with the young man's name embossed in gold. Angry, he rose his voice to his father and said "with all your money, you give me a Bible?" and stormed out of the house.
Many years passed and the young man was very successful in business. He had a beautiful home and wonderful family, but realized his father was very old, and thought perhaps he should go to him. He had not seen him since that graduation day. Before he could make arrangements, he received a telegram telling him his father had passed away, and willed all of his possessions to his son. He needed to come home immediately and take care of things.
When he arrived at his father's house, a sudden feeling of sadness and regret filled his heart. He began to search through his father's important papers and saw the still gift-wrapped Bible, just as he had left it years ago. With tears, he opened the Bible and began to turn the pages. His father had carefully underlined a verse, Matt.7:11, "if ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in Heaven, give good things to them that ask Him?"
As he read those words, a car key dropped from the back of the Bible. It had a tag with the dealer's name, the same dealer who had the sports car he had desired. On the tag was the date of his graduation, and the words PAID IN FULL.
How many times do we miss God's blessings because we can't see past our own desires?

Psalm 37:4,5 Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring [it] to pass.

I haven't been able to update for a little while and i don't know if i will be able to over the next few days. Things have been kinda hectic this week. I got a phonecall yesterday to say that my mom was taken to hospital by ambulance. She had taken chest pains and was short of breath along with other symptoms. Anyway they let her home just this evening and she has to go for a scan of her neck in about 3 weeks time to see if she has a blocked artery. I would appreciate your prayers for her and i am grateful that she is feeling better today. It just goes to show that you never know what a day will bring. Like the scripture says in Proverbs 27:1 Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth. I am glad that the Lord sees the bigger picture and we can be sure that God will always be there to help his children when hard times come. That's all for now. God Bless.

New Bathroom...

Here are the pictures i said i would post.
This one was taken after the walls were stripped......
Under construction.....
And finally the end result of all that hard work........

Did you notice the bath under the window in the first picture?

I have to admit I am really pleased with the new bathroom. There was never much room the way it used to be but now there is a lot more room. It's very nice.
The shower still has to be wired though but that will be getting done tomorrow.
So what do you think????
