Teach them in the morning. Teach them at night. Teach them as you walk along the way. Teach them when they want to hear it and when they don’t. There is a reason God told us parents to be responsible for the precious gifts of little souls He has placed in our hands. We should never get too busy, stressed, unconcerned, or unfocused to take the time to do this little thing that will garner great dividends in the end. It is not up to the school administrators, teachers, preachers, tutors, after school program attendants to raise our babies. They can help, but ultimately the task was given to the parents by the one who made and loves us all. He knows exactly how it should be done. If only we would follow Him and do His will, it might not be so tough for our children to do the same. MORNING, NOON, NIGHT, EVERY DAY. We have an awesome responsibility. Let’s take it seriously, now, before we lose another blessing from our lives. A baby is a joy. There is much hard work and prayer and setting examples, good godly examples involved in preparing a child to live the life that will bring blessings of love, togetherness, honesty and integrity to this world. Yes, sometimes we don’t have all of the answers, but knowing the one who does, makes the task a little easier. We can only fail when we don’t try. Nobody is perfect. That soul is a part of us. It does begin at HOME. It begins with ME.
So much to be done and so few to do it. The night is not here, though it is very near. The world around us spinning more out of control. There’s only one place where you can be consoled. Some deny Him and others don’t even care. Refuge and strength can’t be found anywhere. So many lives impacted, many changed forever. Before the night comes, we need to get together. Serve the true Master, who holds the power over life and death. The only physicians who gives us our health. So much to be done, so let’s do it today. The night is not here. So we still have a chance. Much opportunity to change our circumstance. Wishing on a star won’t get us too far. Our hope is in Him who still bears the scars. The scars in His hands, His road weary feet. He who is asking us to come and seek. Seek Him today while He still can be found. He’ll loosen the shackles that have held you bound. So much to be done, I beg you do it today. He is our help and yes, He is the Way. Hope you’re encouraged. I am. Amen.
Sickness, suffering a medication nation.
Such misery and death befalls creation.
Pills and elixirs, shots and tests.
Seeking yet finding no cures or rest.
Poverty stricken can’t afford the physicians.
Is there something we’re all missing?
The balm in Gilead is still here.
Master healer calls all to come near.
He has the medicine, He is the cure.
His motives not money, His healing is sure.
He works on our bodies from head to toe.
When he operates our sickness is no more.
His hand is steady. His method is precise.
He speaks the words, and the Father will suffice.
The Father, the Spirit, the Lord in control.
Cuts out the poisons residing in our souls.
Trust the prescriptions given by the maker.
His good medicine will cure and not fake you.
No trial, guinea pig, or investigation needed.
Whatever the disease the Lord can treat it.
No thousand years to find the right mix.
He has the power, the permanent fix.
Come to the physician, believe that He can.
Stop being a sick, crippled, medicated land.
Wise leaders pray both day and night
To do the things they know are right
They pray to God who made us all
To help our nation when we start to fall
Wise leaders know they need a guide
Have no room for greed and pride
They fear the mighty One above
Ask Him to bestow His love
To keep the nation in His care
Wise leaders are so very rare
They know they are but instruments
Whom people choose and God has sent
Appointed to a special occupation
Making laws affecting all generations
Wise leaders don’t oppress the poor and weak
Don’t crush the needy under their feet
They honor those who give their lives
And never try to justify
Why there’s no pay for honest work
Don’t treat the citizens like dirt
Wise leaders know when to take a stand
Humbled themselves under His hand
They realize that they’re but men
They choose goodness instead of sin
Wise leaders pray and work for peace
Until their work on this earth cease
They know there is a price to be paid
For unwise decisions they have made
Wise leaders pray both day and night
To do what’s right in God’s eye sight
God placed this on my heart tonight and so I prayed and started to write. It is not sweet and flowery.
I wrote what was inside of me.
Water is deep and it is wide
Surrounding us on every side
The boulders line, the boulders spread
Takes us a while to get ahead
I’m not as scared as I would be
Because you are here with me
I dare not jump from this safe place
Would devastate my pretty face
I’ll not leave you though this is tough
Sometimes the waves are big and rough
Sometimes the crocs swim close to us
That’s when I wish this was a bus
But I’ll not leave you here alone my sweet
We’re in this together, we blast defeat
Today is a dreary and wet day here in Durham, NC. I am trying to find some humor and I found this picture that
I snapped in my hometown of Columbus, GA on last year before the white water course was finished. In fact, this was the week
that the place was blown up. I thought these two turtles on the rocks were so cute so I decided to keep this pic. This is my bit
of humor for today. Stay on the rock! Stay Calm! Be thankful! We could be down there with the CROCS! Be encourage no matter
where you are. Live , love and take care of one another. Life doesn’t last long. Treasure the moments you are together.

You encourage me to encourage you
Through words, pictures, and stories too.
Heartfelt, uplifting glimmers of light
Encourage us to be happy and bright.
I love making others laugh. Laughter is one of the best gifts God has given us. It warms the heart and blesses the soul. Like medicine, it cures the blues and sweeps away the trivial trash and troubles from our weary minds. Laughter is contagious. Everyone needs a good laugh everyday. I hope to encourage you to laugh, to sing, and to be joyous. You encourage me to encourage you.
