He Touched Me

The Spirit of God has made me,
and the breath of the Almighty gives me life...
Behold, I belong to God like you;
I too have been formed out of the clay.
Job 33:4, 6 NASB

Today as I was on my way home from stitchery I decided to take a side trip on one of the back roads in our area.  I love driving these back roads away from all the traffic, where things are slower, where I can take in the beauty of the area we live in.  When I look around at the beauty of the back roads it reminds me of God and the beauty He has made for us to enjoy.  His touch was all that was need to create the beauty on this planet we call earth.  

Just as He made all this by His touch He can do the same thing with our lives.  When we give our life to Jesus we become new creatures.  When we give all the burdens and the worries to Him we will find that we are no longer the same.

Here are a few of the photos I took along the way today.  Enjoy the beauty and let Christ do the same for you.

He Touched Me
by William J. Gaither, 1963

Shackled by a heavy burden
'Neath a load of guilt and shame
Then the hand of Jesus touched me
And now I am no longer the same

For He touched me, He touched me
What wonderful joy that floods my soul
Something happened and now I know
He touched me and made me whole.

Happy Anniversary Stephen and Marianne

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love.  
But the greatest of these is love.  
1 Corinthians 13:13

Twenty-four years ago today our beautiful baby girl married her best friend and we gained a son.
God has richly blessed their lives together, their love and friendship grows daily. 

So today as you celebrate your love for each other we wish you a day filled with joy, love, peace, laughter and sunshine.

Water of Life

The angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb.  Revelation 22:1

When we look around us at all the beauty God has blessed us with and we see the mighty rivers He gave us we get a feeling of awe.  When we look as these rivers and the beautiful paths they have carved through the country side we get just a glimpse of the crystal river flowing through Heaven.  O what a beautiful picture that paints in my mind with all the loved ones that have gone on before me standing there to welcome me home.

Shall We Gather At The River?
by Robert Lowry, 1864

Shall we gather at the river,
Where bright angel feet have trod,
With its crystal tide forever
Flowing by the throne of God?

Yes, we'll gather at the river,
The beautiful, beautiful river;
Gather with the saints at the river
That flows by the throne of God.

Happy Anniversary Mom & Dad

All Things Are Possible

Jesus looked at them and said, "With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.  Mark 10:27

Have you ever been in a situation and you just knew that there is was no way that it was going to work out.  You have worked on your budget and everything is finally falling into place.  Then something unexpected comes along and takes money you had set aside for a trip you had been planning.  You keep working the numbers and finally throw your hands up in despair and say there is never going to be enough to do anything, you are never going to get ahead and you will never be able to take a trip again.

Well you know what?  Maybe you have have been going about it all wrong.  You have been depending on yourself when you should have given it all over to God in the first place.  His Word tells us that He will supply all our needs, not our wants, but our needs and nothing is impossible for Him.

So I don't know about you but I am giving it all to God for He always has my best interest at heart.

Nothing Is Impossible
by Eugene L. Clark

Nothing is impossible when you put your trust in God;
Nothing is impossible when you're trusting in His Word.
Hearken to the voice of God to thee;
"Is there anything too hard for Me?"
Then put your trust in God alone and rest upon His Word;
For everything, O, everything, yes everything is possible with God.
