only one Person ...



Only one Person can step into a life

and give it happiness even when health fails . . .

and give it peace even when possessions fade . . .

and give it security when savings fly away.

That Person is Jesus Christ.

Wow - that is a great quote. It pretty much sums it up, doesn't it?

Yes -- I am grateful to the GOOD SHEPHERD OF OUR SOULS
I have not always followed closely but want to stay close to HIS CROSS

That piece is so true Saija

mari ... chuck swindoll always has these profound thoughts, doesn't he? his writing blesses my heart & makes me think!

passing-thru ... who of us hasn't walked our own way for awhile - only to discover, it doesn't satisfy or bring joy ... i'm so glad i'm found IN Jesus ... forgiven - continually forgiven!

Oh amen to that! The sooner we learn that the better off we'll become.

You and Leo are in my thoughts and prayers. You are a blessing to so many, and I pray that God bless you both abundantly. Love and hugs.

Amen! We are enjoying a beautiful week of weather here. Our apple trees are loaded and the garden is starting to produce. I've been weeding the flower beds after the rains and the weeds pull out so easily its like taking candy from my husband...grin. Hope your day is pleasant also. My version of pleasant means ignoring the laundry for a few days and then having to play catch-up for this tranquil lazy summertime enjoyment.
