He who was without sin made the ultimate sacrifice, Christ gave up His life and died on the cross for our sins. He died so that we might have life and have it more abundantly. By His blood we are cleansed and our sins are washed away. On this Good Friday let us reflect on the sacrifice that Christ made for us. It is the greatest sacrifice of all. He did what no one else would do for us.
The year 2018 is almost over. It has been a most interesting year in every aspect. Some saw successes, some experienced hard times. However the most important thing is that we made it out alive, many didn’t so we must be grateful.
I did not accomplish as much writing as I would have liked to. Books didn’t get published as planned but it is okay. I can still make those dreams come true in 2019. With a bit of persistence, dedication and hard work it will happen.
My fellow bloggers I wish for you and your families a Very Merry Christmas and an exciting, prosperous and productive 2019. Christmas Cheers!
As we observe the season of Lent let us turn away from selfishness and lack of empathy towards one another and remember the sacrifice that Christ made for us. Let us be kinder to one another. Christ is Love.
This is a season set apart for giving Our gifts that warm the heart, As we celebrate Christ’s birthday In a season set apart. A season set apart for showing How much we truly care For those we share our lives with And miss when they are not there. A season set apart for going That fabled “extra mile” To help a needy stranger image credit TheHolidaySpot And leave him with a smile. A season set apart for loving All creature great and small In honor of the Christ Child Who loved them one and all. It’s the season of thanksgiving For all we have received, For once upon a Christmas day, He came and we believed.
I knelt to pray but not for long,
I had too much to do.
I had to hurry and get to work For bills would soon be due.
So I knelt and said a hurried prayer, And jumped up off my knees. My duty toward God was now done My soul could rest at ease.
All day long I had no time To spread a word of cheer. No time to speak of God to friends, They’d laugh at me I’d fear.
No time, no time, too much to do, That was my constant cry, No time to give to souls in need But at last the time the time to die. I went before the Lord, I came, I stood with downcast eyes. For in His hands God held a book; It was the book of life.
God looked into His book and said “Your name I cannot find. I once was going to write it down… But never found the time”
With early autumn come the days
I love the best of all,
When the sunlight gilds the landscape with
The mellow light of Fall.
October’s trees don leaves of gold,
Bright red and amber too;
No treasure chest could boast
Jewels of so rare a hue.
The harvest has been gathered in,
Vineyards their riches yield;
In little, sheltered garden, one
Last rose may be reveled.
I love to see the roadside stands
That offer up their treats…
Pumpkins and juicy apples, grapes,
And cider, sharp and sweet.
With Autumn comes Thanksgiving,
That special time when we,
In church and home gather to join
With friends and family,
To thank God for the blessings He
So graciously bestows:
May we never take for granted
The freedoms that we know.
