Psalm 119:81-88

Kaph

81 I am worn out waiting for your rescue,
but I have put my hope in your word.

82 My eyes are straining to see your promises come true.
When will you comfort me?

83 I am shriveled like a wineskin in the smoke,
but I have not forgotten to obey your decrees.

84 How long must I wait?
When will you punish those who persecute me?

85 These arrogant people who hate your instructions
have dug deep pits to trap me.

86 All your commands are trustworthy.
Protect me from those who hunt me down without cause.

87 They almost finished me off,
but I refused to abandon your commandments.

88 In your unfailing love, spare my life;
then I can continue to obey your laws.

WOW, what an Awesome Day & Evening...

Sunday, April 29, 2012

Hi All,

Hope you have had a beautiful day. Mine has been an awesome day & evening. It all began this morning at just before 11:00am when my kids called to say they were on their way to help clean up the yard and get my patio furniture and grandkids play sets out and ready for the coming summer season.

And wow, did they ever do a heap of work. They cleaned out old growth and trimmed the 2 pine trees in my front garden...They swept the patio and cleaned up the whole garden area getting it ready for the summer. They set up planters, put up my wooden whirly-gig and hummingbird feeders.

Next came my patio table, chairs and umbrella, they are all washed off and set in place. The cushions need cleaning before they can be put on the chairs.

The other side of my yard the kids put up my grandkids climbing-slide play set, the rocking horse, bike and their own lawn chair. The bird bath is in place and a space is ready for my new propane barbeque that I'm buying for this season.

Wow, my yard is looking so good, my azalea bushes are in full bloom and my 2 pine trees are trimmed and topped ready for the summer, I have a sprinkle of tulips up and my both hostas are growing like wildfire, especially the variegated one which has already had a head start, by the looks of it this one will be mega huge come the summer. I can hardly wait...

All that is needed now is my 2 hanging baskets to be filled with lobelia, asters, marigold, gerbera, marigolds etc with some inpatients, pansy, sweet peas and some other colorful plants for my front garden. My friend’s husband buys the plants for me and plants the summer planters sometime around Mother’s day...

Believe me I can hardly wait for summer so I can actually get out in my yard and enjoy the fresh air enjoying the scrumptious food that will be cooked on my new barbeque. YES!

Then tonight I was blessed beyond measure...I attended a 50+ catered dinner. Each lady present was presented with a beautiful corsage as they arrived. I was given a beautiful red and white corsage which went with my red patterned silk blouse.

The room was set up beautifully with china and silverware, stemware and lovely centerpieces complete with candles sitting on a glass mirrored tray.

We were served a 3 course dinner, starting off with Caesar salad with garlic roasted croutons dinner rolls with whipped butter, Rosemary-Lemon Roast Beef with Burgundy Gastrique, Mashed Potatoes, colorful Vegetable Medley, 3 tiered German Chocolate Cake with vanilla ice-cream, coffee and tea, iced water. WOW, what a scrumptious meal…

As you can see I was blessed beyond measure today…Thank you Jesus…
I will post another blog tomorrow after Church and share my photo collage`…

Because I wasn’t home much today I wasn’t on my spark page and didn’t get my Team weekly message out nor did I get to visit all my friend’s here. All I got done was my visits to my Shining for Jesus Team members with a hello post and word of encouragement….

I will send out my weekly team message to you all when I get home from Church tomorrow, and will drop by my spark friend’s starting tomorrow with likely covering all 135 spark friend’s in the next few days.

Thanks all for your friendship and all your support…you are all gems in which I give thanks to God…

Daily Devotions with Heartlight

April 28

Philippians 2:5-8

Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death -- even death on a cross!

Thoughts on today's verse

"Lord, humble us gently." That is one of my friend's favorite prayers. I like it, too. But thank God that Jesus was not gently humbled. While I hate he had to go through agony, his self-emptying humility the fact that was stark, bold, drastic, and outrageous. But I am to have this same attitude when it comes to reaching the lost and loving God's children.

Prayer:

God, you are all-powerful and yet you emptied yourself to redeem me. May I be more selfless in my attitude and treatment of others, like Jesus was with me. In his name, I pray. Amen.

    That is a passage I'm working on right now too. It just amazes me how much Jesus gave up for us before He even died on the cross.

Psalm 119:73-80

Saturday, April 28, 2012

Psalm 119:73-80

Yodh

73 You made me; you created me.
Now give me the sense to follow your commands.

74 May all who fear you find in me a cause for joy,
for I have put my hope in your word.

75 I know, O Lord, that your regulations are fair;
you disciplined me because I needed it.

76 Now let your unfailing love comfort me,
just as you promised me, your servant.

77 Surround me with your tender mercies so I may live,
for your instructions are my delight.

78 Bring disgrace upon the arrogant people who lied about me;
meanwhile, I will concentrate on your commandments.

79 Let me be united with all who fear you,
with those who know your laws.

80 May I be blameless in keeping your decrees;
then I will never be ashamed.
