ReThinking Some Things

Happy 203rd Day of 2014!
It’s the third day of the week.

I’m so thankful for the first day of the week. It starts the week off right. I attend Sunday worship gatherings on Sunday. I believe in that we should. We gather as the Church celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

We had a wonderful gathering as the people of God. We’re still getting use to the time change. 10 AM is the set time for now or until whenever it’s time to have another gathering on Sunday. There are people struggling with the time change. I believe that we will adjust.

I’ll be entering into my 21st year in church attendance. I became a believer in Christ in March of 1983. It wasn’t until September of 1993 when I started to attend church gathering on a regular basis. Yes, it took me about 10 1/2 years to get prepared to become a church go-er at a local church. LOL!

It has been a long church life journey. I’m thankful that I’m apart of a church community. I’ve been learning some things from “church” people. And I’ve been learning some things about the people in the church.

I’m looking forward to my 21st year church attendance anniversary in September. I’m not like that 30 year one back in the days. I’ve come a long ways. I’m on a journey of transformation.

I’ve been re thinking about some things that I’ve learned about church and church life. And I’m unlearning some things too. It’s hard to unlearn some things. It’s like I’m doing wrong. I have to break the habits.

It’s good to rethink some things. As we grow in years, we because wiser in our ways. I’ve been learning from my experiences in life. Life is hard from time to time. We struggle. We fall down. But most important, we have to go to God for guidance.

I try to number my days.
Each day is important.
We learn. We grow. We rethink.
We change each day.

May we learn from our experiences in life. May we understand that we need the church and the church needs us. May the Lord bring us higher in the place where He has been leading us. Amen.

Thanks for reading.

Summertime Doings

Happy 202nd Day of 2014!

It’s been about a month since Summer began. It’s been a good Summer so far. I’ve been enjoying the Autumn weather for the past weeks. I haven’t been complaining about the weather. It’s be wonderful.

We’re in the midst of Summer. Yesterday was wonderful. And today, we’re in a hear wave. Summer has come back from her vacation. I think she had a wonderful time away.

As for me, I’m staying inside as long as I can. I thank God for A/C. I pray that the electricity doesn’t go out. You, know, the “dog days of Summer” haven’t arrived yet.

The garden is coming along well.
Cucumbers are growing big.
The tomatoes should be ready.
I love homegrown veggies.
They are the best.

Hope all are doing okay.
Stay on the journey with Jesus.

May the Lord grant us wisdom to do what is right.
May we continue to enjoy the journey.
Peace be with you.
Amen!


Thanks for reading.

The Fountain Of All Wisdom

Welcome to the 201st Day of 2014!
Happy Day to you!

Prayer for the week of July 20, – 26, 2014

Almighty God, the fountain of all wisdom, you know our necessities before we ask and our ignorance in asking: Have compassion on our weakness, and mercifully give us those things which for our unworthiness we dare not, and for our blindness we cannot ask; through the worthiness of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

As We Count Our Days

Greeting to you on this 200th Day of 2014!

Happy Saturday! We have one more full week of July left next week. We’re pressing forward to August. Time sure seems to be going quicker this Summer. I think we’re not as hot as we were last year. The weather hasn’t been too bad. That’s heat wise.

Other thoughts:
I’ve been counting my days. It’s a fun thing to do at times. I have a calendar that numbers the days of the year. I like that. So we have 165 more days to go. I think next year is leap year.

I hope all had a wonderful week. I’m gearing up for today.
I’m asleep now. I’ll awake and do my daily dos of the day.
Thank God for Saturday.

May we be excited about the day that we are in.
May we learn to count our blessings.
May we see the good of each day.
Amen.

Thanks for reading.

Happy Weekend Time!

Greetings to you on this 199th Day of 2014! This month is half over. It’s been cool here off and on. I think it’s been raining here just about every week since May or June. Thank God.

The dog days of Summer haven’t hit yet. It’s been hot. Then the cool air makes its way in the morning times. I like that. The grass is still greener than ever. The fields are growing. The gardens have some of their harvest.

Yes, cucumbers have been ready to eat. There are a lot in the garden. I’ve been making salads. I love homegrown veggies. They are so good.

I’m looking forward to this weekend. I can get back to my route of doing for Saturdays. I loves the feeling of Saturday. It’s not like the weekday doings or of the Sunday doings. Saturday is Saturday.

I hope all will have a Great Weekend!
May you be safe for the Lord is looking after you.
Keep the faith.
Don’t give up.
Amen

Thanks for reading.

Notes from Thursday, 09 February 2012

God Is Good To Everyone

What do we call good? We can all say what we think is good from what we believe. It’s from what we do and have in our belief systems. We all have our own opinion.

I believe that God is Good. And that He is always good. The goodness of God is and will always be there. For god is God. No one can change that.

I know that there are people who don’t believe in God. Or that He exist. That’s their choice. I believe that we all have the capability to know the difference between good and bad. It’s a built inside our being.

However. through our lifetime, we can be mislead into what’s good and what’s bad by the people and trends of influences in our lives. We have to learn the difference. We have to…

I believe that God is good to everyone. He sees us in His image. God loves us more than we can ourselves.

The goodness of God is in our lives. If we are alive and breathing, that the goodness of God that allows us to live. We have to be thankful for life. For life is a good gift from God.

It’s a good thing to think on the goodness of God. If we see the negative things in our lives, we will have a negative attitude about life. We should see the good things in life.

Whether we are in hard times, we can dwell on the things that aren’t going our way, or focus in the goodness that there. By thinking on the goodness it can bring life into our thinking. What we are thinking may not be worst off than it is.

May we be thankful that God is with us in the season in our lives. May we see the good in what we have in life. May we believe that God is good to everyone. May we show goodness to others. Amen.

Thanks for reading.
Stay On The Journey,
Susan

Last Weekend: Blessed By God

Happy 197th day of 2014!

I survived last weekend. It was a productive one. But, in all that went on, it was worth the weekend. On Friday, I attended a wake. And made my way to Friday night church. That was different.

Then on Saturday, I attended the funeral at 1 PM. It was over about 2:12PM. We made our way to the cemetery about 2:30 PM. While on the way to the cemetery the latter part of the group was cut off from the others.

Yes, someone cut in on the funeral. Not just once but three times. There were about 10 cars trying to keep up… We made it to the cemetery. We discovered that the others went a different route. We met near the cemetery. There were cars on both sides of the streets. It was unbelievable.

By the time we got into the cemetery, there were many cars in the cemetery. My sister dropped me and a couple off. She had to park near the exit of the place. We were at the gravesite for about 10 minutes.

Yes, it was a long walk back. It was hot. I was worn out. I got my walking in. I made it home about 3:20PM. I was heading out to go to a wedding at 4PM. I made it there just in the nick of time.

What a day! The wedding was in the place where I love going to. I didn’t know that the wedding was going to be in there. I was so blessed. It was a small wedding. It was so beautiful. I was glad that I was invited.

I made my way home from the wedding about 5:50 PM. My day was coming to an end. I was worn out. Bless God, I made it through that day. Thank God for strength for the day.

On Sunday, I made to the church gathering. It was nice. I was a bit tired. I greeted the people and so forth. As I said that the beginning of this blog. I survived the weekend. There hasn’t been none like the past weekend.

I don’t think I can do this again. I think, I put too much on myself. The wedding was planned. But, the funeral fell on the same day of the wedding. Death isn’t plan. Funeral come when the do.

Life is so precious. We have to flow with things. We have to change things around. Even when we least expect too.

May the Lord grant us strength when things have to be rearranged in our lives.
May we use wisdom to do what we need to do.
May the joy of the Lord be our strength. Amen.

Thanks for reading.
Susan
