Wishing You Blessings In The New Year


May there always be work for your hands to do.
May your purse always hold a coin or two.
May the sun always shine on your windowpane.
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Thank you so much for hosting this thread. So many of us appreciate it!

There is a delightful thread on page one of the Latest Articles, that has President Reagan telling Russian Jokes.
It’s a hoot.

I hope people check it out. It’s likely to get missed since it was posted so late tonight.

Here is the YouTube link

Thanks Amy.

I've got an old newspaper photo that appeared showing Mom, Don and me in the hospital. Dad was so proud he went out and bought dozens of copies to send to his 12 siblings and friends. I'll see if I can find it and scan it and post sometime tomorrow.

Meanwhile, here's a couple of pics when we were around 1 or 2 years old. That's my Marine brother on the left...

Ecclesiastes 3 -- A Time for Everything

1 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:

2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,

3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,

4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,

5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,

6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,

7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,

8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

Let’s Be Ready

January 1, 2012

Happy New Year! Looking forward to what this new year might bring, I can’t help but wonder if 2012 will be the year when Jesus comes back. But then I also wonder if I’m ready.

All of my life I’ve had to “be ready.” As a child, I had to be ready for dinner by washing my hands. As an adult, being ready for important responsibilities continues to be an ongoing reality. But I’ve come to realize that nothing is more important than being ready for our reunion with Jesus.

Speaking of Christ’s return, John tells us that “everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself” (1 John 3:3). Looking forward to Jesus’ return fills us with hope—not a wish-list kind of hope, but a solid expectation that motivates us to keep our hearts from sinful distractions and rivets our attention on becoming more like Him. If we really believe that this might be the year of His return, we will be more ready to forgive, to seek forgiveness, and to share God’s unconditional love with others.

As we consider the possibility that Jesus could return this year, let’s be sure that we are ready. Let’s strive to be pure as He is pure, anticipating the day when tears and sorrow, pain and death will all be replaced with the everlasting joy of His presence.

Expecting Jesus’ soon return
Will help us live a life that’s pure;
For if we’re ready when He comes,
We will not be ashamed but sure. —Sper

Wanting to be ready for Christ’s return will make a difference in the way we live.

Read: 1 John 2:28–3:3

Everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself. —1 John 3:3
Bible in a year:
Genesis 1-2

Welcome To Sunday At Amy's Place


Glory to God in highest heaven,
Who unto man His Son hath given;
While angels sing with tender mirth,
A glad new year to all the earth.

We will open the book.
Its pages are blank.
We are going to put words on them ourselves.
The book is called Opportunity
And its first chapter is New Year's Day.
~Edith Lovejoy Pierce~

A VERY BLESSED 2012 TO ALL!

"... and may the Good Lord take a liking to you ... but not too soon."

Say, Now!

A new first day! Let’s start it right!
Gee, the daylight’s awfully bright.
Maybe I partied some last night,
It’s in the past. Forget it!

Rise and greet the morning sun,
Lot’s of work still to be done.
Nobody said Life would be fun,
But if it is, we’ll let it!

With exuberance we’ll note,
Cheerful living gets my vote,
“A prayer of thanks to Him devote?”
That’s the way! You said it!

Someone lead us in a prayer,
If you’ve got a friend up there,
My example’s not too fair,
Not the way I’ve led it!

Alright, if you still insist,
No sense trying to resist,
I may get points for being missed,
I hope we won’t regret it!

Lord, we humbly bow our head,
And ask again for daily bread,
Let the words be clearly said,
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!
