One day at a time!

Life is a journey that takes us down many different paths. My journey, so far, has been one filled with the usual excitement, disappointments and every day trials we all face. Above all, I know that the only way to reach any goal is one step, or one day at a time.

When you turn around and look back to where you started from, you see just how far you have come! Success breeds success, so rewarding ourselves for even the smallest victories makes it much easier to keep going ...

God's Valentine Gift
God's Valentine gift of love to us
Was not a bunch of flowers;
It wasn't candy, or a book
To while away the hours.
His gift was to become a man,
So He could freely give
His sacrificial love for us,
So you and I could live.
He gave us sweet salvation, and
Instruction, good and true--
To love our friends and enemies
And love our Savior, too.
So as we give our Valentines,
Let's thank our Lord and King;
The reason we have love to give
Is that He gave everything.
By Joanna Fuchs


May your day be filled with much love and joy.

LOVE: A PARAPHRASE OF 1 CORINTHIANS 13


If I talk a lot about God and the Bible and the Church, but I fail to ask about your needs and then help you, I'm simply making a lot of empty religious noise.

If I graduate from theological seminary and know all the answers to questions you'll never even think of asking, and if I have all the degrees to prove it and if I say I believe in God with all my heart, and soul and strength, and claim to have incredible answers to my prayers to show it, but I fail to take the time to find out where you're at and what makes you laugh and why you cry, I'm nothing.

If I sell an extra car and some of my books to raise money for some poor starving kids somewhere, and if I give my life for God's service and burn out after pouring everything I have into the work, but do it all without ever once thinking about the people, the real hurting people-the moms and dads and sons and daughters and orphans and widows and the lonely and hurting-if I pour my life into the Kingdom but forget to make it relevant to those here on earth, my energy is wasted, and so is my life.

Here is what love is like--genuine love. God's kind of love. It's patient. It can wait. It helps others, even if they never find out who did it. Love doesn't look for greener pastures or dream of how things could be better if I just got rid of all my current commitments. Love doesn't boast. It doesn't try to build itself up to be something it isn't. Love doesn't act in a loose, immoral way. It doesn't seek to take, but it willingly gives. Love doesn't lose its cool. It doesn't turn on and off. Love doesn't think about how bad the other person is, and certainly doesn't think of how it could get back at someone. Love is grieved deeply (as God is) over the evil in this world, but it rejoices over truth.

Love comes and sits with you when you're feeling down and finds out what is wrong. It empathizes with you and believes in you. Love knows you'll come through just as God planned, and love sticks right beside you all the way. Love doesn't give up, or quit, or diminish or go home. Love keeps on keeping on, even when everything goes wrong and the feelings leave and the other person doesn't seem as special anymore. Love succeeds 100 percent of the time. That, my friend, is what real love is!

MY ON-LINE FRIEND

Maybe you don't look me right in the eye...
Maybe you can't ever wipe my tears when I cry.
Maybe we can't share some tea and honey...so sweet.
Or walk together down a path... or up the street.
But we can still be good friends, you see.
Because we met; you and me.
And when you have a "cyber" friend it matters not...
How you look, what you wear, or what you've got.
I don't care if your last name is Smith or Jones,
Or if your size is perfect, plump, or skin and bones.
You're there for me.
You've been a pal through thick and thin...
You shared my glad times, and in my sad times, you made me grin
.So I have sent this greeting to you, dear friend so fine...
To tell you I'm So Glad you're a pal of mine.
And here's a hug, though not with arms, for that can't be...But it's a hug straight from the heart...
To You - From ME...
