The Holy alphabet












A lthough things are not perfect
B ecause of trial or pain
C ontinue in thanksgiving
D o not begin to blame
E ven when the times are hard
F ierce winds are bound to blow
G od is forever able
H old on to what you know
I magine life without His love
J oy would cease to be
K eep thanking Him for all the things
L ove imparts to thee
M ove out of 'Camp Complaining'
N o weapon that is known
O n earth can yield the power
P raise can do alone
Q uit looking at the future
R edeem the time at hand
S tart every day with worship
To 'thank' is a command
U ntil we see Him coming
V ictorious in the sky
W e'll run the race with gratitude
X alting God most high
Y es, there'll be good times and yes some will be bad, but...
Z ion waits in glory...where none are ever sad!

The shortest distance between a problem and a solution
is the distance between your knees and the floor.
The one who kneels to the Lord can stand up to anything.
Love and peace be with you forever, Amen.

Have a very blessed day, and remember Jesus loves
you, and so do I.  Look to HIM for ALL things. Romans 8:28
Blessed Are Those Who Have One Hand Held By GOD,

and The Other Hand Held By A Friend!! ♥

Really enjoyed this at this time.
My husband is working away, My Father died 2 weeks ago. Staying at daughters. I have no physical home right now. For a woman that loved to be a keeper of the home, this is hard.Looking forward to how the Lord will do what He always does be FAITHFUL.

Love it!! This not only blessed me, but there is someone I know who can use the knee/floor comment. You are a blessing to continue providing His word for us to consider.
