Hugs From Heaven
Author Unknown

When you feel a gentle breeze
Caress you when you sigh
It's a hug sent from Heaven
From a loved one way up high

If a soft and tender raindrop
Lands upon your nose
They've added a small kiss
As fragile as a rose

If a song you hear fills you
With a feeling of sweet love
It's a hug sent from Heaven
From someone special up above

If you awaken in the morning
To a bluebird's chirping song
It's music sent from Heaven
To cheer you all day long

If tiny little snowflakes
Land upon your face
It's a hug sent from Heaven
Trimmed with Angel lace

So keep the joy in your heart
If you're lonely my dear friend
Hugs that are sent from Heaven
A broken heart will mend

Yep, you made it. You must have been anticipating the first of May. :)

Wishing you a lovely Sunday, Luv. The new car sounds wonderful .... I keep talking about a new car but all I’ve done is talk. :)

Evenin’ Amy. Special May Day greetings.

Our daughter and grandson arrived home from England tonight. She got some fantastic pictures from the Royal Wedding outside Buckingham Palace.

They were also in South Africa during the first part of their trip.

They must be excited about seeing the Royal Wedding party. I watched part of it. I was impressed with those two young people.

Happy May Day and Blessed Sunday Wishes to you and yours.

If I Could Stop The Clock
May 1, 2011

Every year when May rolls around in Michigan, I want to stop the clock. I rejoice when death is defeated by fragile sprouts that refuse to be confined by hardened clay and brittle branches. Over a few weeks, the naked landscape transforms into fully clothed trees adorned by bright, fragrant flowers. I can’t get enough of the sights, sounds, and scents of springtime. I want time to stop moving.

Also in May, I come to 1 Kings in my Bible reading schedule. When I get to chapter 10, I have the same feeling: I want the story to stop. The nation of Israel has bloomed. Solomon has become king and has built a magnificent dwelling place for God, who moved in with a blaze of glory (8:11). Finally united under a righteous king, they are at peace. I love happy endings!

But the story doesn’t end there. It continues: “But King Solomon loved many foreign women” (11:1), and “his wives turned his heart after other gods” (v.4).

Just as the seasons of the year continue, so do the cycles of life—birth and death, success and failure, sin and confession. Although we have no power to stop the clock while we’re enjoying good times, we can rest in God’s promise that eventually all bad times will end (Rev. 21:4).

Father, our days are filled with pleasures and struggles.
We would like for life just to have the joys, but we know
that’s not realistic in this sinful world. Help us to wait
patiently for You to bring us Home. Amen.

In good times and bad, God never changes.

Read: 1 Kings 10:23–11:4

The glory of the Lord filled the house of the Lord. —1 Kings 8:11
Bible in a year:
1 Kings 10-11; Luke 21:20-38

"Though the mountains be shaken
and the hills be removed,
yet my unfailing love for you
will not be shaken
nor my covenant of peace be removed,"
says the LORD, who has compassion on you.

Prayers continue for those suffering loss from the devastating tornadoes in the South.

I saw a few nice ones but mostly too gawdy and loud and UGLY to be more blunt! LOL!

I really watched the wedding..and got a good look at the headgear...Out of a churchfull..I found 3 winners...

Many were just dreadful!

I thought hats were supposed to make one look better..not like a cartoon!

The bride was just beautiful..and she was what I wanted to see.
What a beautiful religious wedding ceremony..
