Here is a sweet red rose from my garden for all you my dear friends, I hope this day finds you well.
I am recouping from yesterday, my knee is not hurting but my other leg is, lol guess I favored it too much yesterday trying not of step on the right leg, oh well praise God, It will pass, and It will get better.

In Tune With Each Other, My Friend

There is nothing better than sharing with a friend, if you have a good friend you can laugh with, cry with, pray with you have a good thing. Hold them close to your heart daily in Prayer, it is impossible to have a friend and not pray for her, and if you are not praying for her, shame on you. Those we love we pray for, make a point each day to pray for your family, your friends, and especially those you do not like, lets let all malice be put far from us, and let us hold each other high above our self. Talk is cheap, action is where it is, go now and send some one a card, call some one, and just say a prayer for all your friends, and know they are praying for you. It only takes a couple minutes to pray, or write or send a card. Hugs and I consider you all my friends, and I DO pray for you daily. Lots of love on this Friendly Friday. Have a very blessed weekend too. Start praying now for your church services Sunday, God will do great and mighty things when we pray.

Thankful Thursday


"And I will make them and the places round about my hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing." (Ezekiel 34:26)
I just love blessings, don't you, and I always want them to come down in showers, not in spurts or in drops but in showers, I love it when God rains down blessings on me. This verse provided the inspiration for the old gospel hymn "Showers of Blessing." While it applies specifically to Israel, it states a divine principle which believers of all times have rightly appropriated to their own lives. The same word ("showers") is also frequently translated "rain," speaking of the rain which followed Elijah's contest with the prophets of Baal at the end of the three-year drought. "And Elijah said unto Ahab, Get thee up, eat and drink; for there is a sound of abundance of rain" (1 Kings 18:41).
I count my friends the greatest blessings God has ever given, in my years of life, I have seen many blessings in all shapes and forms. Some I have since Grade school, some more recent. We just cannot go without friends, they are a need for the human spirit.
I remember one time when we were first married, we had this old car that always broke down, well it always seemed to break down at a light, I would slow and stop for a red light, and then the car would not start again, but God always had someone there to help, in our darkest moments he always sends a light.
Today is Thankful Thursday, how many things can you say you are thankful for? WOW I can think of so many right off the top of my head I could not write them all down.
But today I am thankful for my friends, I have several really good friends, that are always there, they always pray for me, and I know I can count on them, I say that is one shower of blessings indeed. If you have one good friend you can trust it is a blessing, but to have several, that is from God.
I am going today to have an injection of Steroids put in a Cyst behind my knee, I have been fighting this painful battle for weeks now, and finally know what the culprit is that is causing all my pain. So if you would pray for me, and that this pain will go away, the shot will shrink the cyst and I can get on with my every day living, and doing all the things I love doing. I am so thankful that God is with me every way, and that he has gotten through this time of pain and I can still say, I trust in you Lord, and I know you have my life, my health all of me in your mighty hands, and can care for me so much better than anyone else. Thank you Lord.

Wonderful Wednesday
Feeding the Soul

"Moreover as for me, God forbid that I should sin against the Lord in ceasing to pray for you: but I will teach you the good and the right way." (1 Samuel 12:23)

Samuel's great heart, both for the Lord and for His people, is revealed in the promise of our text. Although he was hurt and disappointed, because he had led them successfully and justly his whole life, he would still pray for them and teach them. This is a great example for Christian leaders or workers today who, through no fault of their own, have been replaced by someone else.

Intercessory prayer is not easy, especially if our prayers are not appreciated by those we pray for. Nevertheless, it is a type of prayer ministry that especially pleases the Lord, and that is more important than human gratitude. "I exhort therefore" said Paul (no doubt reflecting God’s own desires), "that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority . . ." (1 Timothy 2:1-2). Paul would even urge prayer for the emperor, Nero, who had imprisoned him and would eventually have him put to death.

Even Jesus had said that we should "pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you" (Matthew 5:44). The Lord Jesus is the greatest intercessor of all. For when we sin (and all sin is sin against the Lord), He is our "advocate with the Father" (1 John 2:1), and in fact, "he ever liveth to make intercession for them" (Hebrews 7:25). Therefore, should we not also be prayer intercessors?

Marvellous Monday

We had such a wonderful Weekend, I hope you all did too, yesterday was great, such good preaching and fellowship, and last night we had a time going to church.
When we left home the sun was shining, we went about 12 miles and low and behold it started hailing, yes hailing some a large as  golf balls, we pulled off under a tree to protect the car we were afraid it was going to get all dinged up. It only lasted about 10 minutes then we went on our way, and no damage done, along side the road we seen all this white hail laying, just seemed unreal. it all happened so quick, and I thank God it was hail and not that Tornado that hit in Mississippi, now that was some real devastation, pray for those folks that were affected by that. I wish I had my camera though to show all that hail, not very often do we see hail in our part of the Country, way down south that is.
I had the best surprise yesterday when we walked into church, and in my seat was this box with a card on it, beautiful card from my new found friend, Lorraine, and lookie what was inside the box. She said when she seen it she thought of Mother Hen and had to get it for me. I have a web site and I am known as Mother hen. Isn't it just gorgeous, and it has found a new home right where it belongs too. Thank you Lorraine, and I am so happy I God has brought us together and we have found this new friendship, hugs. Don't ya just love surprises like this.
