Today is the first day of a new month, and just happens to be my birthday too, it has been a wonderful 68 years, and God has been so very good to me. I have had my ups and downs, but thinking back he sure has had his hand upon me and my life.

I seen it before salvation and I really see it now. God has blessed ,and I can say it is a wonderful and peaceful time, life is good, and God blesses daily, yep, he give breath for another day to sing his praises.

My SS girls bought me a gift in last night, it was so very special being I have only taught them a few weeks, it really made me feel loved. It is the best smelling Twilight woods from Body and Bath, the body spray and lotion, then a great sippy cup that you freeze the thing in the middle to keep it cold, and in red, amen they do know me already, so sweet, it really blessed me.
The pastor and wife had us for dinner last night too after church, because, Chuck preached and he never eats before, she served Quail, wow, never had quail, and really do not care for it, shushhhh don't tell, heehee, so we had a good night,  one little boy was saved too, Chuck had the honor of leading him to the lord. See how God blesses us, I mean just beyond measure he pours it out, what a wonderful life in serving him. Hope you all have a great day, and my dh is baking me a cake, giggles, like I need a cake, come on now and get some. Then I think I want to go to some thrift stores, I got some birthday money too, so burning a hole in my pocket. God has blessed me this day, how about you?

We had a great weekend, and seen souls saved yesterday too.
Saturday on visitation we had lots of very good visits, but none
that came yesterday. Praying for all those that are visited and hope
that God will get hold of their hearts and bring them in so they may
be saved too, and join our fellowship there.
But today is another day to praise God for his goodness.

Hebrews 11:1 "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."

Faith now that is a wonderful word, and really involves so much. Like forgiveness, joy, and the other spiritual blessings we have. Faith takes us beyond ourselves, past today, over the bumps of tomorrow, all the way through and beyond life on this earth. When we live in the light of Jesus' resurrection, we are also certain of God's gift of eternal life to us, individually and personally.

Our lord urges us to cultivate the faith he has given us by spending time in his Word, and in prayer. Like the pine tree, which stays green all winter, established faith makes perseverance possible. It gives us a stick-to-it attitude that stubbornly persists.

My prayer, dear lord let all the other spiritual blessing you have worked in my life shine in beauty against the faith you have given, then show me how to share my faith with others, , amen and amen, have a very blessed day.
