living word ....


This morning I was looking through a collection of quotes that I had written down from years of tv sermons  …  this one by Charles Price from People's Church, Toronto - really jumped out at me … because it is true … how do we know what GOD wants us to do … how do we KNOW how God wants us to behave … unless we read HIS Word … study His word … then we can apply His word to our lives … things like "take up your cross and follow me. ~ Jesus" … the WORD is alive and life changing … read it - you will see what I mean … 

That's how this poster came to be …

Be patient, yet be diligent ...


 " … take time to consider the promises of God.  Write them out.  Memorize them.  Ponder them in your heart.  Claim them. Pray them back to the Lord.  Remember what a magnificent God we serve.  And then act on what you know, because time is fleeting.  A new heaven and earth are just around the corner."

~ excerpt from the Jeremiah Study Bible

where have you put your trust?

this delicate woodland flower was given to me by a 3 year old charmer … the verse was from my morning readings … a reminder to myself of the keeping power of my Creator & Saviour …

NASA, 50 years ago today

my husband asked me to put his devotional from this morning, in poster format and then share it … the result is below ... it was from an old Billy Graham booklet, which is still very applicable today ... and as always, right to the crux of the matter of eternity and where we will spend it ...

our life is like a vapour ...


the thought of life as a morning fog … or vapour … which vanishes so quickly … has been a reoccurring theme in the past days …

yesterday I was taking in our local farmers' market, when I bumped into old friends I hadn't seen in awhile … we chatted and they shared that they were on their way to a celebration of life … when I found out who it was for, I was floored … I had not heard about his passing … it was sudden, he was in good health and the next moment he was gone.  His wife had found him, dead when she arrived home from work.

the service was close by so I quickly headed that way as well.

it was very well attended, with standing room only … He was a much loved member of our community and had been a fair and compassionate person … as well as my former boss …

the pastor quoted the verse on the poster I just made …reminding  everyone we could be gone in a blink of an eye.  he also gave the way of salvation (which was most welcome to hear, as I did not expect it at this gathering) … I have been praying for so many of the people who were in attendance (my neighbours and friends) … and once again, GOD plainly spoke at this gathering - JESUS is the only Way and we need to choose forgiveness through Him - before our time on earth is done.  He is the Way, the Truth, the Life.

the time on earth was over for my friend, it happened suddenly … the same is true for us ... our next breath is not guaranteed … we need to "make sure" of our eternal destination … "Anyone who calls upon the LORD will be saved" … call on Jesus today.
