Concern yourself more with accepting responsibility than with assigning blame. Let the possibilities inspire you more than the obstacles discourage you.

"If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired."
-General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

Prayers continuing for all those communities in NJ, Delaware, PA, NY (Staten Island), and all the early winter weather storm areas ... Hopefully power will continue to be returned and the gas leaks will be shut off and that there is something to bring comfort to those who have found themselves in a "completely different world" now.

be authentically you...

I want to thank each of you.. I wasn't for sure of how it would go.. Now I need a huge favor... Write down these states and keep them in Prayer.. I live in South Jersey..God had His Hands on us.. Every where around us is gone... The Shore Points Phila. Delaware..NY all of the small towns..Gone There is so much Devastation and it is just growing.. The last count was 55 dead.. It was because a Mayor told them to hunker down and wait out the storm.. People are just in shock and we are trying to help and do what we can.. Pray for these People..
We went to Church Wednesday and tomorrow I will write a couple of funny stories that did happen to our Church family.. But tonight focus on the ones who are in pain..In Christ Love Always Jane

that is beautiful, and sad, and true... no person who truly desires to serve and worship and praise the Lord should ever be turned away from a group of true believers. Thank you for posting.

That was nice. I don't think it was offensive at all.

No matter how dirty we get God always can clean us up..I got this in my box today and thought I would share it... I Pray that this don't offend anyone.

They Won't Let Me In
It was a beautiful Sunday morning. People were filling the church to its full capacity! As they entered, each were given a bulletin filled with announcements, topic of today's sermon, what songs they would sing and who to pray for.

At the end of the line stood an older man. His clothes were filthy and you could tell that he had not bathed in days. His face was covered with whiskers, for he had not shaved for a very long time. When he reached the usher, he removed his tattered old brown hat in respect. His hair was long, dirty, and a tangled mess. He had no shoes on his feet, and wore only soiled black socks to cover the sores upon his feet. The Usher looked at him turning up his nose at the old man and said, "Uh, I'm sorry sir, but I'm afraid we can't let you in. You will distract the congregation and we don't allow anyone to disrupt our service. I'm afraid you'll have to leave."

The old man looked down at himself and with a puzzled look on his face, he placed his old brown hat back upon his head and turned to leave. He was sad as he loved to hear the choir sing praises to the Lord. He loved to watch the little children get up in front of the church to sing their little songs. He carried in his pocket a small worn out Bible and loved to see if the minister preached a passage from the Bible that he had underlined. But he was respectful, and didn't want to cause any commotion, so he hung down his head and walked back down the steps of the big brick church.

He sat down on the brick wall near the edge of the church yard and strained to listen through closed doors and windows to the singing going on in the church. Oh how he wished he could be inside with all the others.

A few minutes had passed by when all of a sudden a younger man came up behind him and sat down near him. He asked the old man what he was doing? He answered, "I was going to go to church today, but they thought I was to filthy, my clothes to old and worn, and they were afraid I would disrupt their service.

Sorry, I didn't introduce myself. My name is George." The two men shook hands, and George couldn't help but notice that this man had long hair like his. He wore a piece of cloth draped over his body tied with a royal purple sash. He had sandals on his feet, now covered with dust and dirt.

The stranger touched George's shoulder, and said: "George, don't feel bad because they won't let you in. My name is Jesus, and I've been trying to get into this same church for years -- they won't let me in either."

"Remember to welcome strangers in your homes. There were some who did that and welcomed angels without knowing it." - Hebrews 13:2
