A pot made of clay
by skilled hands . . .
we, too, are thus made
by the Creator God’s hands.
So many types of clay,
so many types of pots,
the Lord GOD lovingly made us all.
They come in different colors, strengths,
all have value,
all made with equal amounts of love.
Sadly, more importance is placed
on global warming,
than human life.
News broadcasted multi times daily
speaks more of “another” shooting.
than a “tragic” one.
Is there a right or wrong side of the street??
a right or wrong skin color??
We were created with immeasurable love, all of us.
Will we ever put the guns down?

No matter how hard a lemon
may try to disguise itself as an apple,
The Gardener will know the truth.
Sprinkling sugar on the surface
will not make sweet that which is not.

Before we judge and
close our doors and hearts to one another,
we need to remember that
our church buildings would be empty of any but
our Triune God
were it not for
we sinners present!

Why do we have no qualms about missing worship,
yet are so very quick to make the false claim that our prayers go unheard?
Thankfully, we are loved and forgiven! – Martha LShaw

An apology is NOT giving up nor giving in. It is a statement that the relationship is more important than who was right or who was wrong.
Often, sadly, the bickering continues long after the cause of it is forgotten. Please don’t let this happen!

We get wrapped up in our request,
we wonder when the answer will come.
our larder flows with milk and honey.
Our response all too often?
“I asked for a drink of Water!”

I was doing my usual morning things and suddenly in the middle of this, the Lord stopped me with a message He wanted shared. Maybe it’s for you.
We all have regrets which hold us back from all He holds out to us. A huge one was just placed on my heart. FORGIVENESS. It is hard, but by FAR the hardest one for me to forgive is MYSELF. He wants me . . . us, to do that. Receive His peace. IT IS YOURS!

Marked As Yours
Your arms stretched out,
“it is finished” is what you said,
But for me it had only just begun.
All those years before my birth,
Your hand print of love
Was already on my soul
And eternal life with you was mine
Before my first breath!
Yours is a love without beginning
And without end!
