Pray Just to Pray?

Some people pray just to pray
and some people pray to know God.

is more powerful than an army

A Bee's Labor

The bee is more honored than other animals,
not because she labors,
but because she labors for others.

- St. John Chrysostom

The Wonders of Easter

Upon that cross of Jesus
Mine eye at times can see
The very dying form of One
Who suffered there for me;
And from my stricken heart with tears
Two wonders I confess;
The wonders of redeeming love
And my unworthiness.

The Patterns of Easter

HE LIVES in the patterns of the cross

Had It Not Been

Just suppose God searched through Heaven
He couldn't find one willing to be
The supreme sacrifice that was needed
That would buy eternal life for you and me

Had it not been for a place called Mt. Calvary
Had it not been for the old rugged cross
Had it not been for a man called Jesus
Then forever my soul would be lost

Easter is upon us - Will you be dancing with the band
- Or be rejoicing with the Saviour?

Calming the Mind

The more tranquil a man becomes, the greater is his success, his influence, his power for good. Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom. - James Allen

Fishers of Men

I will make you fishers of men,
Fishers of men, fishers of men,
I will make you fishers of men,
If you follow Me.
If you follow Me, if you follow Me,
I will make you fishers of men,
If you follow Me.

Stir Up Something Good

Cooking is like love.
It should be entered into with
abandon or not at all.

Are We Deep Rooted as the Tree?

"I never saw a discontented tree. They grip the ground as though they liked it, and though fast rooted they travel about as far as we do. They go wandering forth in all directions with every wind, going and coming like ourselves, traveling with us around the sun two million miles a day, and through space heaven knows how fast and far!" - John Muir

Lord, Keep Me Focused

Guard against being as the grasshopper for it is said that those who are unable to keep a single subject in focus but hop from one thing to another have 'a grasshopper mind'. Don't want to be called one of them!

only a precious few have the same one.

Everything Not As First Seems

No way will this frog ever turn into Prince Charming.
Just take a look at his kisser.

Lesson to be learned? Not everything is as it first seems. Be sure to take a second look before jumping (i.e., hopping, leaping) into something you wished you’d never taken part in.
