Current Week's  Postings:


Good morning folks,
As Jackie and I talked this morning she mentioned she had been looking at Psalm 108 and she liked the first verse about being confident. I want to post the first 6 verses as a way of starting off our work week. I like the end of verse 2. With my praises I wake up the dawn!
Just imagine what it would be like if all of mankind praised God the way we should! Wait... some day in heaven we will! Pure hearts filled with praise.

My heart is confident, God;
I will sing; I will sing praises
with the whole of my being.
Wake up, harp and lyre!
I will wake up the dawn.
I will praise You, Lord, among the peoples;
I will sing praises to You among the nations.
For Your faithful love is higher than the heavens,
and Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.
God, be exalted above the heavens,
and let Your glory be over the whole earth.
Save with Your right hand and answer me

so that those You love may be rescued. Psalm 108:1-6 HCSB

Be blessed, Be a blessing,



Good morning folks,
Check out these verses...

But no one can tame the tongue; it is a restless evil and full of deadly poison.With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the likeness of God;10 from the same mouth come both blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be this way.11 Does a fountain send out from the same opening both fresh and bitter water?12 Can a fig tree, my brethren, produce olives, or a vine produce figs? Nor can salt water produce fresh. James 3:8-12 NASB

Yesterday I had a bit of a rough time. I received a big lesson in how we can bring each other down with our words and actions. I had pulled into a local Wendy's for lunch. There was about a 1/2 hour wait so I left. As I was pulling out of my parking spot a red car crowded me so I turned tighter. As I realized I got very close to a truck parked close beside me I stopped and turned away from the truck. All was OK I did not hit the parked truck but a guy got out of the passenger side of the truck and SCREAMED at me all the while making gestures. I was verbally beaten. I rolled my window down and apologized for coming close to his beloved truck. His face was beet red and his ears were extremely red (like blood). I thought he was going to have a heart attack. I apologized again and drove away from this crazy angry man.
I drove to the local Sonic and just sat there for a awhile before I ordered. Then I did an experiment. I ordered a burger and when this young guy brought it to me I thanked him for his good service and tipped him. The smile on his face helped me recover from the abuse of the red faced guy earlier. As I sat there still feeling bad about the event at Wendy's I thought of these verses so that is why I've posted them today.

We all have a chance each day to bless others or to bring them down. We need to remember Who we serve and build others up!

Be blessed, Be a blessing,



Good morning folks,
I love it when you can bring a conversation around to the Lord. For instance the other day as I was speaking to a customer she asked my lineage. She was reading my last name on my business card. I explained I am of Acadian French descent. She told me her last name and said "I'm Jewish. I'm a Jew with Buddhist tendencies. What do you think of that"? I said to her that she was the apple of God's eye, no matter what. All the Jewish people are the apple of His eye. She asked how I could believe that. My response was that the Old Testament tells me so! She just looked at me and smiled as she thought about my remark.
A gentle, respectful remark can be used of God.
It's true. Christians need to realize who the Jewish people are and respect them for they are the apple of His eye.
I'll bet you weren't expecting a verse this morning from Zechariah.

For thus says the Lord of hosts, “After glory He has sent me against the nations which plunder you, for he who touches you, touches the apple of His eye. Zechariah 2:8 NASB

Lately I've seen a few boisterous and disrespectful people (not friendly like the lady mentioned above). They have convinced me to renew my efforts to show all people some serious kindness and genuine respect. I love to see their response to kindness. Kindness please our Lord.

Be blessed, Be a blessing,
