60 “Arise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.
Perhaps it is just me, but the Light seems to be shining extra brightly this
morning and my fine feathered choir seems to sing more
sweetly than ever!
Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’Matthew 22:37-39
. . . And always!
MOST OF US go to the Lord in prayer only for big things and wonder why we become stressed. He wants to be in relationship with us, His children! DO NOT SUFFER IN SILENCE! REACH OUT TO HIM!
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. -Isaiah 41:10
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.
James 1:5 ESV
She stood in the corner alone and sad
and looking at the crowd, she wished she could join them
but did not.

“Oh, please play this!”
Still, she stayed in her corner thinking
“I don’t like this music!”
Did it NOT occur to her
