Around the corner I have a friend,
In this great city that has no end,
Yet the days go by and weeks rush on,
And before I know it, a year is gone.
And I never see my old friends face,
For life is a swift and terrible race,
He knows I like him just as well,
As in the days when I rang his bell.
And he rang mine but we were younger then,
And now we are busy, tired men.
Tired of playing a foolish game,
Tired of trying to make a name..
'Tomorrow' I say! 'I will call on Jim
Just to show that I'm thinking of him.'
But tomorrow comes and tomorrow goes,
And distance between us grows and grows.
Around the corner, yet miles away,
'Here's a telegram sir,' 'Jim died today.'
And that's what we get and deserve in the end.
Around the corner, a vanished friend.

Remember to always say what you mean.
If you love someone, tell them…
Don't be afraid to express yourself.
Reach out and tell someone what they mean to you.
Because when you decide that it is the right time it might be too late.
Seize the day. Never have regrets.
And most importantly, stay close to your friends
and family, for they have helped
make you the person that you are today.

Jesus loves me

While watching a little TV on Sunday instead of going to church, I watched a Church in Atlanta honoring one of its senior pastors who had been retired many years.

He was 92 at that time and I wondered why the Church even bothered to ask the old gentleman to preach at that age.

After a warm welcome, introduction of this speaker, and as the applause quieted down he rose from his high back chair and walked slowly, with great effort and a sliding gate to the podium. Without a note or written paper of any kind he placed both hands on the pulpit to steady himself and then quietly and slowly he began to speak...

'When I was asked to come here today and talk to you, your pastor asked me to tell you what was the greatest lesson ever learned in my 50 odd years of preaching.

I thought about it for a few days and boiled it down to just one thing
that made the most difference in my life and sustained me through all my trials.

The one thing that I could always rely on when tears
and heartbreak and pain and fear and sorrow paralyzed me...

The only thing that would comfort was this verse..........



'Jesus loves me this I know.
For the Bible tells me so.
Little ones to Him belong,
We are weak but He is strong.....

Yes, Jesus loves me...
The Bible tells me so.'


When he finished, the church was quiet. You actually could hear his foot steps as he shuffled back to his chair. I don't believe I will ever forget it.

A pastor once stated, 'I always noticed that it was the adults who chose the children's hymn 'Jesus Loves Me' (for the children of course) during a hymn sing, and it was the adults who sang the loudest because I could see they knew it the best.'


'Senior version of Jesus Loves Me'

Here is a new version just for us who have white hair or no hair at all.

For us over middle age (or even those almost there)
and all you others check out this newest version of Jesus Loves Me.

JESUS LOVES ME

Jesus loves me, this I know,
Though my hair is white as snow
Though my sight is growing dim,
Still He bids me trust in Him.



YES, JESUS LOVES ME..
YES, JESUS LOVES ME..
YES, JESUS LOVES ME
FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO.


Though my steps are oh, so slow,
With my hand in His I'll go
On through life, let come what may,
He'll be there to lead the way.


YES, JESUS LOVES ME..
YES, JESUS LOVES ME..
YES, JESUS LOVES ME
FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO.


When the nights are dark and long,
In my heart He puts a song.
Telling me in words so clear,
'Have no fear, for I am near.'



YES, JESUS LOVES ME..
YES, JESUS LOVES ME..
YES, JESUS LOVES ME
FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO.

When my work on earth is done,
And life's victories have been won.
He will take me home above,
Then I'll understand His love


YES, JESUS LOVES ME..
YES, JESUS LOVES ME..
YES, JESUS LOVES ME
FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO.


I love Jesus, does He know?
Have I ever told Him so?
Jesus loves to hear me say,
That I love Him every day.



YES, JESUS LOVES ME..
YES, JESUS LOVES ME..
YES, JESUS LOVES ME
FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO.

God bless!

How fabulous is that version of Jesus Loves me, I have also copied it to show some friends from church....

I hope everyone is well


"Hear, O LORD, and be merciful to me; O LORD, be my help. You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give you thanks forever."
Psalm 30:10-12

Unfortunately, Rita, I do not know. It was sent to me by a friend and thought to share it.

BIRTH OF A HUMMINGBIRD

This is truly amazing.

Be sure to click on 'NEXT PAGE' at the bottom of each page; there are 5 pages in all. A lady found a hummingbird nest and got pictures all the way from the egg to leaving the nest. Took 24 days from birth to flight. Because you'll probably never see this again in your lifetime, enjoy and share.

The very last picture is amazing.

Default Jesus Loves Me!

I thought the Jesus loves me one was great, I read the line about 50 years and immediately thought of that song. There is so much comfort that comes through that song especially the older you get! I can humm it and sing it when I am not feeling so great cause it is just so comforting to remember and dwell on.

Thanks for posting,
Michele

Caterina the video with the hummingbirds was amazing.....so small yet so strong

I am glad to say I am feeling so much better, so hopefully by the time I get my last chemotherapy next Wednesday I will be back to full strength, thank you so much ladies for your continued prayers

Every chapter of life’s journey
Plays its own important part,
And by trusting in God’s wisdom,
Hope stays strong within the heart.
There’s a purpose in His planning,
Guiding us within his way,
And our faith, will surely lead us
To the promise of each day..

Eight Gifts You Can Give at No Cost
===================================

1. THE GIFT OF LISTENING...
But you must REALLY listen. No interrupting, no daydreaming,
no planning your response. Just listening.

2. THE GIFT OF AFFECTION...
Be generous with appropriate hugs, kisses, pats on the back and
handholds. Let these small actions demonstrate the love you
have for family and friends.

3. THE GIFT OF LAUGHTER...
Clip cartoons. Share articles and funny stories.
Your gift will say, "I love to laugh with you."

4. THE GIFT OF A WRITTEN NOTE...
It can be a simple "Thanks for the help" note or a full sonnet.
A brief, handwritten note may be remembered for a lifetime
and may even change a life.

5. THE GIFT OF A COMPLIMENT...
A simple and sincere, "You look great in red," "You did a super
job" or "That was a wonderful meal" can make someone's day.

6. THE GIFT OF A FAVOR...
Every day, go out of your way to do something kind.

7. THE GIFT OF SOLITUDE...
There are times when we want nothing better
than to be left alone.
Be sensitive to those times,
and give the gift of solitude to others.

8. THE GIFT OF A CHEERFUL DISPOSITION...
The easiest way to feel good is to extend a kind word to
someone, really it's not that hard to say, "Hello" or "Thank You."

The child whispered, 'God, speak to me'
And a meadow lark sang.
The child did not hear.

So the child yelled, 'God, speak to me!'
And the thunder rolled across the sky
But the child did not listen.

The child looked around and said,
'God let me see you' and a star shone brightly
But the child did not notice

And the child shouted,
'God show me a miracle!'
And a life was born but the child did not know.

So the child cried out in despair,
'Touch me God, and let me know you are here!'
Whereupon God reached down
And touched the child.
But the child brushed the butterfly away
And walked away unknowingly."

The Master Painter

A glowing white-washed orb hung high
Lighting up the midnight sky
As silently it spins and sails
Upon ordained and preset trails.

Silver moonbeams kiss the ground
Then move along without a sound;
Dappled shadows on the grass;
Pale face upon a pond of glass.

Cotton candy clouds glide by
Dimming the moon and starlit sky;
Cold winds blow and they move on;
Soon every misty cloud is gone.

Stardust dancing on the beams
Of the moon and the world seems
Touched by the Master Painter's Hand
Creating an enchanted land.

~ Belinda van Rensburg ~

So, so sorry sweetie, hang in there - you are not alone in any of this.

Hello dear friends. I've been unable to check in as our server went down Friday evening and service has just now been restored. I've been so eager to touch base with all of you.

Now, I find that you are having a down day, Anne. Please know that we are in the battle with you. I want to pray for you ...

"Our dear heavenly Father, how good to know that You are constantly watching over Your children. I think of your precious Word which I read yesterday ...

For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect before Him.

Father, I ask that you would show Yourself very strong for Anne. Come along side her and lift her up ... encourage her to lean heavily on You with the full assurance that You have Your healing hand on her. Bring peace and cheer to her heart, as only You can do. Help her to be encouraged and strengthed by Your Holy presence. In Jesus Name I ask, with thanksgiving for all You are doing for Anne. Amen"

Anne ... please stay in touch and know that we are praying for you!


Hugs,

Rita

Dappled shadows on the grass;
Pale face upon a pond of glass.

Cotton candy clouds glide by
Dimming the moon and starlit sky;
Cold winds blow and they move on;
Soon every misty cloud is gone.

Stardust dancing on the beams
Of the moon and the world seems
Touched by the Master Painter's Hand
Creating an enchanted land.

Caterina ... Thank you for sharing this beautiful poem ... how I wish I could express my thoughts like that. This poem brought to mind the majesty of Psalm 104 .... reading it always brings me to the point of worshipping our Creator and Savior!

Thank you so much ladies for your kindness and your prayers, I am sure I will be back to my usual self in time for my treatment on Wednesday, your support and thoughtfulness is really appreciated.


God be with you in the morning,
Guide and bless you through the day,
Fill you with his love and comfort,
Bring you strength along your way.
God be with you, when the sunshine
Like true friendship glows so bright,
And when stars and moon shine gently,
God be with you through the night.

Meditate.
Live purely. Be quiet.
Do your work with mastery.
Like the moon, come out
from behind the clouds!
