THE GIVER!

The Bible says, It is more blessed to give than receive. Down through the ages, there have been many great givers; the greatest of all, is God Himself. He gave mankind all the wondrous gifts in His creation; the sun, the moon, the stars and all things great and small. In the beginning all was at peace in the garden, then came the devil, then came sin, then came death to all. But the love of God still was there! Because of sin, man was separated from perfect fellowship with God; God still loved His creation so in order to save it, God, through His wonderful grace sent His son Jesus to live on the earth, die on the earth, and to resurrect from the earth, returning to God the Father; there interceding for man at this very moment. So from the start of time to the finish of time, God is and forever will be the greatest giver with the greatest gift! Dear soul, why not except His greatest gift of all? Eternal life through Jesus His Son!

Say Thankyou!

SAY THANK YOU

When you awake at dawn,

and are still able to yawn,

say thank you!

If you are tired and groggy,

and your mind is still foggy,

say thank you!

If you can still tie your shoes,

and smell the coffee brew,

say thank you!

If you can walk out the door,

and go to the store,

say thank you!

If you have a dear friend,

and have precious time to spend,

say thank you!

If you can begin each day,

and are able to pray,

say thank you!

If you can take time to be still,

and read God’s word,

and seek His will,

say thank you!

Even with all my sin,

by God’s grace,

into His sheltering arms,

He welcomed me in,

and I will always say thank you!
