We can now celebrate that OBL is finally dead. Bet he’s disappointed in those virgins! *grin*

Well, since OBL was buried at sea, Did he get disappointed with virgins or mermaids?

Never Alone
May 3, 2011

Having played intercollegiate soccer, I’ve never lost my love for “The Beautiful Game.” I especially enjoy watching the English Premier League. One reason is the skill and speed with which the game is played there. Also, I love the way the fans sing in support of their beloved “sides.” For instance, Liverpool has for years had “You’ll Never Walk Alone” as its theme. How moving to hear 50,000 fans rise as one to sing the lyrics of that old standard! It’s an encouragement to players and fans alike that together they will see each other through to the end. Walk alone? Never.

This sentiment has meaning for everyone. Because each of us is made for community, isolation and loneliness are among the most painful of human experiences. During painful times, our faith is vital.

The child of God never needs to fear abandonment. Even if people turn on us, friends forsake us, or circumstances separate us from loved ones, we are never alone. God has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Heb. 13:5). This is not just a nice tune or clever lyrics offering an empty sentiment. It is the promise of God Himself to those who are the objects of His love. He is there—and He isn’t going away.

With Christ, you will never walk alone.

God’s unseen presence comforts me,
I know He’s always near;
And when life’s storms besiege my soul,
He says, “My child, don’t fear.” —D. De Haan

God’s presence with us is one of His greatest presents to us.

Read: Hebrews 13:1-8

Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” —Hebrews 13:5
Bible in a year:
1 Kings 14-15; Luke 22:21-46

Thank you for our beautiful lesson from God’s Word, Rus. Knowing that He is near gives me peace.

Thank you, dear Kitty! She is such a happy baby and going through the sweetest stage at this point. Of course they go through lots of stages as they grow. I only hope she never loses that sweetness. Appreciate you! (((((Kitty)))))

"Not often can I say, "What a beautiful outfit." That includes my clothes."

I know exactly what you mean, Jane! I haven't done any real shopping in a long time for clothes, although I'm needing a few things. Most clothes for me are either too 'young and teenage looking' or 'older frumpy looking things'! Some don't seem to care as you said. I wear mostly knits for everyday around the house and they look good enough to run to the store in and they are comfy! I need a couple of new ones at this time.

I wear dress slacks for going to the mall or going to lunch, etc. I did wear a skirt outfit with a cute jacket for Easter Sunday. (something I already had.)

Good luck on your trip, Jane. Bet you dread all the pat-downs! I only fly when absolutely necessary and its been a couple of years of no flying for me!

A Dog named Mace

A mechanic who worked out of his home had a dog named Mace. Mace had a bad habit of eating all the grass in the mechanic's lawn, so the mechanic had to keep Mace inside. The grass eventually became overgrown.

One day the mechanic was working on a car in his backyard and dropped his wrench losing it in the tall grass. He couldn't find it for the life of him, so he decided to call it a day.

That night, Mace escaped from the house and ate all the grass in the backyard. The next morning the mechanic went outside and saw his wrench glinting in the sunlight. Realizing what had happened he looked up to the heavens and proclaimed......

He proclaimed: "A grazing Mace, how sweet the hound, that saved a wrench for me!"

Such a great “peanut butter” graphic and poem, Billie! Thank you! Reminded me of putting slices of bananas on a peanut butter sandwich, when I was young! Yum! Yum!
