DON'T STIFLE YOUR SPIRIT
kIND words produce their own beautiful image in man's soul. Everyone knows the pleasure of receiving a kind look, a warm greeting, a hand held out in time of need. And such gestures can be made at so little expense, yet they bring such dividends to the investor.
The War Cry
I've been trying to really listen and hear God's whisperings! this week and I was just browsing my little Missalette from church which is a worship resource booklet and what do I turn to?????!!!!!! It's a little song, "if today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts." taken from a verse in the Bible. Psalm 95;6O come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord our maker***7;For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice,***8; Harden not your heart, as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness
My confession today to YOU is I hardened my heart! My son was going to cut the grass sooooooooo before he did, I wanted to pick as many violets as I could before he cut them all to smitherines! I LOVE violets and thought too, I would put some inbetween some book pages for my art, I don't think I've ever tried violets! but a whispering in the wind and a thought came into my head, why not take some violets over to your neighbor VIOLET???!!! I didn't go today but hopefully I will tomorrow!! but maybe she needed some violets today! sooooooo I was looking over some of my old art and here was this collage i made and it has a wonderful fitting message for todays Blah, Blah Blogging! "Don't stifle your Spirit!" Let it be a Sweet Surrender!

WHERE WOULD WE BE WITHOUT OUR FRIENDS?
JANUARY 23, 1965*APRIL 24,2005 ***CHERISH YOUR FRIENDS***LET THEM KNOW HOW MUCH THEY MEAN TO YOU WHILE THEY ARE STILL LIVING!***ROMANS 8;38 ***For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,39***nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Jesus our Lord. and the verse I also turned to, today is Romans 8;27***And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for us with groanings that cannot be uttered......I remember the dead and pray for them very often because they are living in my heart and have known them, makes my heart beat that much stronger! Susie!!!!!! I LOVE YOU!!!! She was sooooooo Glad to be able to go to Mexico and swim with this sweet fellow! She said it was a BLESSING because she didn't feel all that well, but she felt this was indeed a gift from God! She is a gift from God! May God Bless her husband Kevin today as he was her great LOVE and May God Bless Susie as she was and is his great LOVE........thinking of you both today, love and prayers for you both! I hope this post gives Susie a little giggle! Her giggle was one of her trademarks, soooo much JOY in it! It brought comfort and she comforted many people!!!

BEING SELFISH TODAY
The little calendar book reads today; SELDOM can the heart be lonely,
If it seeks a lonelier still,
Self-forgetting, seeking only
Emptier cups of love to fill. (Isn't that pretty and very fitting for today! for me!) written by Frances Havergal

I WISH YOU SMILES
In the evening though, my children, Damon, Gina, Mario came over with their sweethearts, Natalie, Kelly, and Gina's (she thought was her) friend but now is an X or a big O(zero) and Andrea, one of Gina's real friends and who I call my little girl brought her little doggie Brady over! We sat on the back porch, drinking coffee, colas, and wine, eating cream puffs! Everyone was sooooooooo full from their dinners! Gina brought me a pretty hanging basket of flowers, Mario and Kelly brought me an Easter basket full of goodies(jelly beans, pretty tea towels and pot holders, lotions, glitter eggs filled with candies and a lottery ticket!LOLNo, I didn't win but it was Fun scratching it off this morning to seeeeeeeeee if I had won, I didn't even know this was in that basket til' today!) Damon and Natalie brought two big chocolate peanut butter eggs!!!mmmmmmm! Thank YOU all!!! It was soooooooooooooo SWEET!!!! of you!!!!!!!
My little calendar book today says; A SMILE costs nothing but gives much. It enriches those who receive, without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever! (anonymous) I know Dad's smiles are more precious to me! Hope YOU all had a Blessed Easter and have a Blessed week!
And SMILE!!!!!!!!!! xooxoxooox

RAINY DAY BLUES
About tomorrow, My heart?
God watcheth all with care most true;
Doubt not that he will give thee too,
Thy part.**** by Paul Fleming
that's today's saying in this sweet little calendar booklet I got for a birthday gift from a dear friend, Glenna in 1998! It fits the bill today, well, this morning was rainy and I was sad, longing and mourning my youth! I think because my dad is probably doing the same, that's what he told his grandkids when they visited him yesterday with me "Don't get old" When I get sad like this and no-one can take it away, I turn to God! and his Bible!
I turned to Philippians If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, 2** Fulfill ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind 3*** Let nothing be done through strife or vain glory;but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves4****Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others5*****Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus
and in Phillippians 3:20 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the LORD Jesus Christ (I sometimes forget this, our prayers are our conversation and they are to God sooooooo a part of us is already up in heaven, our conversations!!!!)
and then to Matthew 11:6 And blessed is he, whoever shall not be offended in me
and verse 28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest and then I turned to one of my FAVORITE verses, Isaiah 55:12 FOR YE SHALL GO OUT WITH JOY, AND BE LED FORTH WITH PEACE; THE MOUNTAINS AND THE HILLS SHALL BREAK FOIRTH BEFORE YOU INTO SINGING, AND ALL THE TREES OF THE FIELD SHALL CLAP THIEIR HANDS!Isn't that
pretty??? ReaD all of Isaiah, chapter 55! soooooo SWEET!
My GOD has done it again! He has comforted me! Let him COMFORT YOU!!!
