♥Wednesday Wonderful Words♥

Acts 4:12 "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved".

While many False Prophets have been offered, only the True Jesus Christ, only begotten son of God, saves. While we often live for many lords, only one Lord give liberty and sets us free from sin and death. While many ways are claimed bring us close to God, Jesus says that he is the only way.John 14:6 :Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me". So we are driven to one ultimate question: do we believe salvation is in Jesus alone, or do we not? It's our choice. But what we decide about Jesus is really deciding about everything. Is Jesus your Lord? Is Jesus the name above all names in your life? Is Jesus your Savior? If not, then please accept him today, for the Bible says: "Salvation is found in no one else."

We had a great Sunday, hubby preached in Jacksonville, FL and today he is preaching the Chapel service at the school, God is using him, and that is his prayer, one thing he fears, is that God will set him on the shelf, he could not stand that, he loves preaching, and teaching, and serving God in any way possible. I sure love that man, he has been such a faithful servant for so very many years.

I do pray you all have a wonderful day, that God will pour out his blessings upon you, and that you will in turn bless some one else.

We got our green beans, and onions planted, and I planted my cherry tomatoes that I will keep on the back porch on the sunny morning side, hope it all goes well, and wanting to get down to Starke, FL to pick strawberries this month too, hope we can, I love to freeze them, I have lots of blueberries still from last Spring we picked in the freezer, I just made blueberry muffins Saturday.

Terrific Tuesday

I love this Doctor

Q: Doctor, I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life. Is this true?

A: Your heart only good for so many beats, and that it....don't waste on exercise. Everything wear out eventually. Speeding up heart not make you live longer; it like saying you extend life of car by driving faster. Want to live longer? Take nap.

Q: Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables?
A: You must grasp logistical efficiency. What does cow eat? Hay and corn. And what are these? Vegetables. So steak is nothing more than efficient mechanism of delivering vegetables to your system. Need grain? Eat chicken. Beef also good source of field grass (green leafy vegetable). And pork chop can give you 100% of recommended daily allowance of vegetable product.

Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?
A: Well, if you have body and you have fat, your ratio one to one. If you have two bodies, your ratio two to one, etc.

Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?
A: Can't think of single one, sorry. My philosophy is: No pain...good!

Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?
A: YOU NOT LISTENING! Food are fried these day in vegetable oil. In fact, they permeated by it. How could getting more vegetable be bad for you?!?

Q: Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?
A: Definitely not! When you exercise muscle, it get bigger. You should only be doing sit-up if you want bigger stomach.

Q: Is chocolate bad for me?
A: Are you crazy?!? HEL-LO-O!! Cocoa bean! Another vegetable! It best feel-good food around!

Q: Is swimming good for your figure?
A: If swimming good for your figure, explain whale to me..

Q: Is getting in shape important for my lifestyle?
A: Hey! 'Round' a shape!

Well, I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about food and diets.  And I even have scripture to back this up, yep chapter and verse..

1Timothy 4:8  For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.

AMEN and Amen..have a very blessed day.

Marvellous Monday

Well good morning my friends, I hope and pray you had a great Sonday, and the lord truly blessed. 

We left here yesterday about 8:15 arrived at our destination about 9:40,. just in time right, amen. God is good, his hand of protection was upon us, and we had a good sweet time of fellowship together going.

The folks came in and we had a prelude to SS, very nice and refreshing, a man give a short devotion, then we said pledges to the Christian flag, American Flag, then the Bible and to Christ, then he dismissed us to our classes. It was nice, and different.

We had a good SS teacher too, very informed and taught with much excitement, and enthusiasm, we truly enjoyed it.

I want to thank you for your prayers, God seen fit to answer them, and give a blessed time. Chuck preached with much boldness and power, and it was very good, then a few of them took us out to lunch, we had good food, sweet fellowship, and a time of getting to know these dear folks at this church, they truly are a blessing to us.

Some wanted us to come home with them to rest, but we had made prior arrangements to go over to friends for the afternoon. We had a very good time there, we had not seen them lately, and as always we laughed much, and cried some, and just had a sweet time of fellowship with our dear friends.

The evening service was good, and Chuck preached, then  presented his Soul Winning Ministry to them also, the deacon will give the Pastor the info Chuck gave him. We did not see any one saved, but I know they were blessed, and are a good group of believers, We got home about 10:45, we stopped on our way home and had a bite to eat, we were going to stop by the grocery store for a few things, but was tired out, and just wanted to get home.

We slept good last night, almost immediately when my head hit that pillow I was gone..I feel freshed and good this morning, and say, this is the day the lord hath made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.

No mater what today brings, let us rejoice and be glad, the true side of a Christian shows when there are shadows on his way, or a trial comes into his life, may we pass these, and may our lord say, well done my child.

Now have a marvellous Monday, and rejoice in him, for he is worthy.
God Be with You
