My Favorite Quotes

Wint68

If two angels were to receive at the same moment a commission from God, one to go down and rule earth’s grandest empire, the other to go and sweep the streets of its meanest village, it would be a matter of entire indifference to each which service fell to his lot, the post of ruler or the post of scavenger; for the joy of the angels lies only in obedience to God’s will.——- E m.

Peacefulk clean Night

moon1

The night is cold,

the night is clear;

I can see so many stars,

twinkling stars from here.

The moon is bright,

and the shadows,

of the trees are everywhere,

the birds are in the evergreens,

finding shelter there.

God’s creation is good,

God’s creation is right,

Thank you Father,

for this beautiful night.

AMAZING GRACE 2

a/ WAS UPON CHRIST— Luke 2:40 And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.

b/ CHRIST SPOKE WITH AMAZING GRACE— Psalms 45:2 Thou art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into thy lips: therefore God hath blessed thee for ever.—Luke 4:22 And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth. And they said, Is not this Joseph’s son?

c/ CHRIST WAS FULL OF GOD’S GRACE— John 1:14 And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth.

d/ GRACE CAME BY CHRIST—John 1:17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.— Romans 5:15 But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.

Christmas Message!

70 PLUS WINT!

4212274576_e6de6b1413_o

CHRISTMAS: It’s Christmas, it’s Christmas, let our hearts joyfully sing, God sent His Son to earth, His gift of salvation to bring, as a babe in a manger, not as a mighty king. Christmas is not Santa Clause, or tinsel hanging on a tree, Christmas is the gift of God’s Son, salvation for you and me. Christmas is not Frosty the snowman, or Rudolph the red nosed reindeer, It’s the celebration of Jesus birthday, the beginning of God’s salvation plan. It’s Christmas, it’s Christmas, let our hearts joyfully sing, those good old Christmas carols, proclaiming the birth of Jesus, they so joyfully bring. ~Winston Staples
May you have the gladness of Christmas which is hope;
The spirit of Christmas which is peace;
The heart of Christmas which is love.
~Ada V. Hendricks
Wishing you a joyous Christmas as we reflect upon the birth of our Savior!
The thing we must…

WATCH OUT FOR THE DEVIL!

70 PLUS WINT!

WATCH OUT
Watch out for the devil,
the father of lies,
he will sneak up and kick you,
and make your soul cry.
Watch out for the devil,
he will fill you with doubt,
he will use all his power,
to keep God’s light out.
Watch out for the devil,
that deceiver, that fraud,
he will do all he can,
to keep you from God.
Watch out for the devil,
he is lurking, around the bend,
doing all his dirty work,
to his very end.
Cheer up my friends,
there is an answer,
for the devil’s snares;
His name is Jesus,
He loves you and cares.
He shed His blood on Calvary’s tree,
and arose the third day,
so we could be free.
So trust in Jesus, my Redeemer,
and my friend; He will keep you safe,
on Him you can depend.
