Aw, poor Tiapam!
I see you are having trouble with your hearing......
Here.........let me set you up

It is almost invisible,
And can even be disguised as earrings!

It is the place we come to get away from the everyday stuff.

Sweet Praise
September 30, 2010

Several years ago, my husband helped to lead a work crew of high school students on a short-term missions trip to a Christian school in an urban community. Unfortunately, Tom had broken his foot shortly before the trip and was supervising the work from a wheelchair. He was discouraged because he wasn’t able to get around as he had hoped.

While he was working on the ground floor, a few of the girls were painting on the third floor. He could hear them singing praise choruses in harmony as their voices echoed down the wide-open staircases. Song after song ministered to him. “It was the most beautiful sound I’d ever heard,” he told me later. “And it lifted my spirits.”

Colossians 3 reminds us, “Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord” (v.16). Not only were those teenage girls giving sweet praise to God, they were ministering to a co-worker.

Whatever you’re doing today, cultivate an attitude of praise. Whether it is through song or conversation, let your joy in the Lord reverberate to others. You never know who you might encourage.

Our words of praise and songs of joy
Can be a welcomed gift
To those who need encouragement—
Whose spirits need a lift. —Sper

Hope can be ignited by a spark of encouragement.

Read: Colossians 3:12-17

Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly . . . singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. —Colossians 3:16
Bible in a year:
Isaiah 9-10; Ephesians 3

For All The Cat~People Of Amy's Place



Prima Donna Cat





Of course, I am a Prima Donna Cat!
Just take a close look and you will easily see that
I accept nothing less than the best, so pardon my Humility
When I state quite simply that the World revolves around me!

The Sun rises each morning at a time I find adequate
Though I'm still working on those dark clouds that bring on the wet
That falls on everything without discretion or regret
I've tried many things but haven't found the solution yet!

My luscious fur requires lots of swirling pets and gentle rubs
That my Humans generously supply, sans trips to the nasty bath tub
When it comes to caring and feeding me, the love for my Humans I shall never feign
Though, if they were to opt for fresh cream instead of milk, I would not complain!

So, now I'll stand on my hind legs and take a deep breath with my arms outstretched
Hoping my Humans will not mistake this odd pose as a prelude to play "Catch"
And prepare to begin an Ode to felines and all their regalia
I'll strike the opening chords of this long and heartfelt Aria!

Good Morning Mayor. What a great thought today. When we praise God, it does have a lasting impact on others.

I have a dear friend who lives in Newfoundland. Even through this terrible hurricane disaster, and being without water, her praises to God were so impressive on my heart.
