A message from the past

A MESSAGE FROM THE PAST Today I came across a message I had written down early in 2011. Before I even knew I would be battling cancer. However at that time I had been battling chronic lung disease since December of 2004. I remember the day I wrote this down, I was feeling very tired and sick and depressed. I had cried out to the Lord asking Him to heal me. As I re-read this today I thought it just might be worth sharing with all of you here at CB. So many people are hurting and in need of many different healings. This is the message I received wrote down that day. I am your God and I am your healer. I am healing you from the inside out. I ask "Why in that order? Here is the answer I received. The Spirit first needs healed so the mind can heal. When the Spirit and mind are healed the......
Daily bible verse: 1 corinthians 13:12

As I read this verse it brought back memories of a blog I wrote some time ago called “He ain’t heavy He’s my brother.” There are times in life we simply don’t understand the “why” of God’s plans. This was only one time in my life that I neither understood nor accepted there just was not an answer. It took along time for me to come to terms with the fact that there are times there is no understandable reason and I would have to just let it go and trust God. This verse gave me hope and understanding that someday I would know the reason and the why. After many years of tormententing myself becoming bitter and being angry with God. I finally found peace and acceptance in just knowing I did not need to have an answer to my why’s or a reason......
A prayer from 10years ago

This is an article written by Darrell Scott 10 years ago. Due to the contrversity over the recent shootings at Newtown, CT. I thought it an appropriate post. COLUMBINE STUDENT'S FATHER 12 YEARS LATER ! Guess our national leaders didn't expect this. On Thursday, Darrell Scott, the father of Rachel Scott, a victim of the Columbine High School shootings in Littleton, Colorado, was invited to address the House Judiciary Committee's subcommittee. What he said to our national leaders during this special session of Congress was painfully truthful. They were not prepared for what he was to say, nor was it received well. It needs to be heard by every parent, every teacher, every politician, every sociologist, every psychologist, and every so-called expert! These courageous words......
True greatness and simple miricales

A few days ago I read a sweet blog K wrote on What is Greatness. Today I ran across this Old Story - I'm sure many of you have read it before, But today I'm gonna share it with you again just as a reminder. TRUE GREATNESS AND SIMPLE MIRACLES I was at the corner grocery store buying some early potatoes. I noticed a small boy, delicate of bone and feature, ragged but clean, hungrily apprising a basket of freshly picked green peas. I paid for my potatoes but was also drawn to the display of fresh green peas. I am a pushover for creamed peas and new potatoes... Pondering the peas, I couldn't help overhearing the conversation between Mr. Miller (the store owner) and the ragged boy next to me. Hello Barry, how are you today?' H'lo, Mr. Miller. Fine, thank ya. Jus'......
Manufacturers recall

I put this under "humor" because it made me smile -- Hope it makes you smile too. RECALL NOTICE: The Maker of all human beings (GOD) is recalling all units manufactured, regardless of make or year, due to a serious defect in the primary and central component of the heart. This is due to a malfunction in the original prototype units code named Adam and Eve, resulting in the reproduction of the same defect in all subsequent units. This defect has been technically termed "Sub-sequential Internal Non-Morality," or more commonly known as S.I.N., as it is primarily expressed. Some of the symptoms include: 1. Loss of direction 2. Foul vocal emissions 3. Amnesia of origin 4. Lack of peace and joy 5. Selfish or violent behavior 6. Depression or confusion in the mental component......

"my name is i am"

My Name Is I AM I was regretting my past and fearing my future. Suddenly my Lord was speaking: "My Name Is I Am" He paused. I waited. He continued, "When you live in the past with its mistakes and regrets, it is hard. I am not there. My name is not I WAS. When you live in the future with its problems and fears, its hard. I am not there. My name is not I WILL BE. When you live in this moment it is not hard. I am here. My Name is I AM. "and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen" Matthew 28:20 KJV And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and He said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you. Exodus 3:14 I did not write this beautiful little piece above, but it is certainly worth sharing and giving thought......
What do you see lord

What do you see Lord? As I was reading yesterday, I came across Gracie's blog about taking a good long hard look in the mirror. My reaction was, No Thanks. I know what I see in the mirror and it isn't pretty. But I went and looked anyway. It's a good thing hubby was gone shopping or he would have called those guys with the white coats for sure. And this is what I saw. A tired fat old woman, whose hair has turned white and who's beauty left years ago. I see the lines of years of rejection and loneliness. The pain of loves and loved ones lost for reasons never understood. I see the toll of the years of abuse to my body. I see the pain I've caused my children and family. I see the bitterness that grew from these things. I ask the Lord, What is it you see Lord? What do you......
The letter

Today I came across a letter I wrote to my children nearly 30years ago. I'm not a person that's good with words and I wrote this so they would know how important each one of them was to me, and how their walk with God affected my life as well. I thought I would share this with you just as a reminder that our children need to know they bless us and we love them. This is so important in today's reckless uncaring world. My children have grown and their roles have changed as have mine. Not all of them now walk with God as they did when they were young -but I will keep praying for their return. "Train up a child in the way they should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." - Proverbs 22:6 "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shall be saved and......
Three bullets

I received this from a friend and thought it worth sharing. If I new how to do one of those little survey things I'd add one. Since I don't I'll just let you all decide -Which would you have done -be honest you don't have to tell anyone else Three Bullets There once was a man who had nothing for his family to eat. He had an old rifle and three bullets. So, he decided that he would go out hunting and kill some wild game for dinner. As he went down the road, he saw a rabbit. He shot at the rabbit and missed it. The rabbit ran away. Then he saw a squirrel and fired a shot at the squirrel and missed it. The squirrel disappeared into a hole in a cottonwood tree. As he went further, he saw a large wild 'Tom' turkey in the tree, but he had only one bullet remaining. A......
