I was lost this morning, couldn’t find anything so when I got home and saw the pings I had to post the Daily Bread. I didn’t read it this morning either.
I’m sure John will figure things out but wow what a job.
As long as I can find ya, I’ll be here. Thanks!
I may be putting away some things..As they get older “chase” can cause havoc. O My
I was into withdrawal and found a way to this old thread through a bookmark..I know this glitch is a real slow process to correct for John.
I have two blogs to keep up with so I had plenty to do but posting coffee and reading is the way I start my day.
I don’t know how John does it, patience is a virtue I guess.
Great stories! When my cat had five kittens under the guest room bed, I didn’t want to disturb them for quite some time. When they started creeping out from their safe-haven, I got some elastic string (heavy duty) from the craft section at Wal-Mart. I hooked a pom-pom made of yarn from the elastic string, and tacked the string to the ceiling. Those kittens LOVED it. They would spend literally hours, batting that pom-pom, and trying to catch it. I found homes for each of them, and actually cried when they were taken off. Ahhhhhh - memories.
Stepping outside and gazing heavenward on a star-studded evening always helps to soothe my soul after a trouble-filled day. When I peer into the night sky, I forget, at least for a moment, the cares of life on earth.
Ancient Israels prolific songwriter wrote a poem thousands of years ago that still rings true: When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him? (Ps. 8:3-4).
When we try to imagine the immensity of Gods heavens, our problems indeed seem trivial. Yet God doesnt think so! With all the galaxies He has to attend to, God is mindful of us. And not only are we on His mind, He cares for us.
No wonder the apostle Paul advised new believers to set their minds on things above (Col. 3:2). In doing so, we raise our thoughts above the level of earthly disputes and focus instead on our loving, heavenly Father, who wants us to know Him, to know how to live peacefully with one another, and to know that we can live eternally with Him in a place even more beautiful than the heavens.
The heavens declare the glory of God (Ps. 19:1). Lets join creation in praise to Him.
Good morning, Mayor. Thank you for Our Daily Bread.
We’ve found the missing threads. Come over and join us.
