Your God given talents and creativity reflects not only who you are, but also who He is! Ephesians 2:10 – “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.” May this verse be an encouragement for you to share your gift and talent with the world!

2/2/2021 – Gifts Hoped For, by Charlotte Eliopoulos
Facing the unknown assured that we’ll be provided that which is needed
rather than fear that we’ll be found lacking.
Living in the moment with the honest recognition that we are not in control
but are directed by an all-knowing, caring Supreme Being.
Being willing to accept hardships and burdens that we can’t understand
with the happiness and blessings that are given to us.
Forgiving quickly and completely those who have hurt and wronged us
as we’re afforded unearned forgiveness that eases our burdens.
Relinquishing control to enable us to shed the shackles and blinders
that restrict us from fully engaging in the dance of life.
Proceeding by faith in acceptance of the mystery of the divine plan
without dependence on sight or worldly proof.
These are the greatest gifts of all.
2/1/2021 – Silver Crown, by Gloria Coleman
Ask me what I know of Him ~ who is faithful to the end
Ask me how I know of Him on whose grace I can depend
If you see me on the way ~ stop me should I see you not
If you seek new life today, there is time to share my lot
For you see my silver crown speaks to me of heaven’s call
For it cheers when I feel down ~ God’s been with me through it all
God’s right ways are leading me on the safe and narrow road
God’s right hand brings lasting peace ~ and will safely lead me home
Long this pilgrim path for me ~ may my story ever tell
Long I’ll sing of lessons sweet, by a God who’s loved me well
So this earthly crown I wear ~ as my heart He does possess
So it shows my Father’s care and His gracious faithfulness
May He find you in your youth ~ sending tokens from above
May He win and capture you with His everlasting love
Trust and see the Lord is good ~ Christ forever lives in me
Trust Him for His Word is true and His mercies ever free
Sovereign grace that won my heart ~ ask me for I do not mind
Sovereign Lord will not depart ~ pray one day you too He finds
Crown of silver may it be ~ symbol of my heavenly crown
Crown of glory may it be ~ at His feet I’ll cast it down
“A gray head is a crown of glory…” Proverbs 16:31
3/28/2008 – Why by Marlene Wawrzyniak
Why aren’t we responsible for the things we do or say?
It doesn’t matter who gets hurt as long as we get to play.
Do what you want but don’t get caught and if you do, deny.
Never admit that you were wrong, just tell another lie.
Babies thrown in garbage cans because we have “The Choice”.
Children by the millions who will never have a voice.
Who knows how many Einsteins or Mozarts we have killed.
How many more will have to die? How much more blood be spilled?
Children are taking guns to school. Should we be surprised?
They see us killing babies. Does it matter then Who dies?
