Wanda thanks for getting serenity Sunday started this morning. I had no connection again, but was lucky enough to see Tony in the hall and asked him to reset the wireless again, but by then I didn't have enough time to post as it was time to leave for church.

August 31 Serenity Sunday


Those old habits don't have to be erased, they just become replaced by a new habit that is more in vibrational harmony with who you are and what you want.
~ Abraham Hicks



Peace is like silence; it is always there. The lack of harmony in our lives is like noise superimposed on the silence. The issue is not how to create peace, but how to live in a way that eliminates the noise.
~ Gabriel Cousens

Happy Sunday! Hope your Sunday is serene.


Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
...
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned.
- attributed to St. Francis of Assisi
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A wise man will make haste to forgive,
because he knows the true value of time,
and will not suffer it to pass away in unnecessary pain.
- Samuel Johnson
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Today, I say yes to forgiving.
I commit to being for-giving love and for-giving compassion in all areas of my life.
– Sheri Rosenthal
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Give yourself the gift of forgiving others,
not because THEY deserve it,
but because YOU deserve the serenity and joy
that comes from releasing resentment and anger.
Unconditional forgiveness is the path to your own inner peace.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Happy Sunday!

This is my wish for you:
Comfort on difficult days,
Smiles when sadness intrudes,
Rainbows to follow the clouds,
Laughter to kiss your lips,
Sunsets to warm your heart,
Hugs when spirits sag,
Beauty for your eyes to see,
Friendships to brighten your being,
Faith so that you can believe,
Confidence for when you doubt,
Courage to know yourself,
Patience to accept the truth,
Love to complete your life.

Think of five things you are grateful for today.... Now how do you feel?
- Tim Sanders, author

Grateful for my relationship with the Lord, my guides and my angels. My family and the close bond that we all have including our girls significant others. I'm grateful for living in a country that allows me to express myself in freedom, faith and beliefs. I'm grateful for the ability to grow some of my own food and to have a cold storage room. I'm grateful for the gift of each new day and all the opportunities they hold for growth and learning and blessings.

So blessed.

Mauri I like that quote, I like the one by her called "I am a Christian" Wishing all a blessed and serene Sunday our first one in June.

Humans may be social beings, but solitude has been shown to have great societal value. Jesus was a great healer and teacher, but he took time to rest and pray. Solitude is essential for our spiritual experience–it is where we hear the still, small voice.

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
- Romans 12:12

Mauri I liked both of those quotes and thanks for getting us started this beautiful Sunday morning.

Wishing all a blessed and serene Sunday!

Hugs,
Shirl

These came in an email this morning. Particularly like Albert Schweitzer's quotation. Wishing you a serene Sunday.


Sunday clears away the rust of the whole week.
- Joseph Addison

Do not let Sunday be taken from you.
If your soul has no Sunday, it becomes an orphan.

Have a happy and blessed Sunday!

God loves me just as I am today. He knows all my junk….and lack of faith, and he loves me anyway. However, he loves me too much to leave me the way I am.

Most Gracious Heavenly Father,
We thank You for our mothers to whom You have entrusted the care of every precious human life from its very beginning in the womb.

You have given to woman the capacity of participating with You in the creation of new life. Grant that every woman may come to understand the full meaning of that blessing, which gives her an unlimited capacity for selfless love for every child she may be privileged to bear, and for all Your children.

Watch over every mother who is with child, strengthen her faith in Your fatherly care and love for her and for her unborn baby. Give her courage in times of fear or pain, understanding in times of uncertainty and doubt, and hope in times of trouble. Grant her joy in the birth of her child.

To mothers You have given the great privilege and responsibility of being a child's first teacher and spiritual guide. Grant that all mothers may worthily foster the faith of their children, following the example of Mary, Elizabeth, and other holy women who follow Christ. Help mothers to grow daily in knowledge and understanding of Your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and grant them the wisdom to impart this knowledge faithfully to their children, and to all who depend upon them.

Assist all "spiritual mothers", those who, though they may have no children of their own, nevertheless selflessly care for the children of others -- of every age and state in life. Grant that they may know the joy of fulfilling this motherly calling of women, whether in teaching, nursing, religious life, or in other work which recognizes and fosters the true dignity of every human being created in Your image and likeness.

We beseech You to send Your Holy Spirit, the Comforter, to all mothers who sorrow for children that have died, are ill or estranged from their families, or who are in trouble or danger of any kind. Help grieving mothers to rely on Your tender mercy and fatherly love for all your children.

We ask your blessing on all those to whom You have entrusted motherhood. May Your Holy Spirit constantly inspire and strengthen them. May they ever follow the example of Mary, mother of Our Lord, and imitate her fidelity, her humility, and her self-giving love. May all mothers receive Your Grace abundantly in this earthly life, and may they look forward to eternal joy in Your presence in the life to come.

We ask this through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end.
AMEN.

"A man loves his sweetheart the most, his wife the best, but his mother the longest." — Irish Proverb

"Mother is the name for God in the lips and hearts of little children." — William Makepeace Thackeray

"Mother — that was the bank where we deposited all our hurts and worries.
~T. DeWitt Talmage

Happy Mother's Day to all mom's and a blessed and serene Sunday.

Thank God for our Mothers
If life were without water, where would we be?
If life were without mothers,
There would be no you or me.
We all need to take hold, of how precious life really is,
and not take for granted the gift of love and the ability to give.
Thank you to God for creating us all
For giving us our mothers
So we can stand proud and tall.
Humans are no accident, no mistake or error
We sometimes live our lives in fear of this,
Even to the point of terror.
But when the truth is told, and recognised by all,
God does not create rubbish. He knew what he was doing when he created
me and you, but the best gift of all, is giving us loving, caring
Mothers who love us unconditionally through and through.
None of us are perfect, that includes ourselves and family.
Hold onto how precious we are and thank God for our mothers.
Amen

Julia Hunt

Miss you mom!
Hugs,
Shirl

He is risen! Happy Easter to all.

Wanda thanks for getting us started here this morning, my computer was and still is giving me fits.


HEALING AT THE CROSS

We know when Jesus was crucified
Upon the wooden cross,
Our every sin was laid upon Him
All for loving the lost

And we know that when He rose again,
He conquered death and hell
Through His resurrection we have
Eternal life as well

For this we praise our gracious Lord
And thank Him for His love,
For we could never have had this hope
If it wasn't for His spilled blood

But we can know His resurrection power,
Right now, while we are here,
For we can come to the cross of Christ
And lay down our burdens there

For everything that may hold us back,
The hurts from yesterday,
At the foot of the cross we lay it down
And then just walk away

For I believe that there is healing
At the cross of Christ
We do not need to carry these loads,
For they've all been crucified

Receive from Jesus the healing you need
For your spirit, body and soul
Then you can arise, freed from your past
To walk completely whole

For what He accomplished on the cross
Goes on into eternity,
Just reach out your hand and He will too
And receive His victory.

Have a blessed and Happy Easter!

April 20 Serenity Sunday HAPPY EASTER!

Almighty God, who through your only‑begotten Son Jesus Christ overcame death and opened to us the gate of everlasting life:

Grant that we, who celebrate with joy the day of the Lord’s resurrection, may be raised from the death of sin by your life‑giving Spirit;

through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one
God, now and for ever.

Amen.

Psalm Sunday, and the real reason we celebrate Easter. Have a blessed day and if you have a favorite verse(s), poem, quote, saying or whatever may be on your heart please join us here today.

Mauri thanks for getting us going this morning.

More than Easter bunnies
And chocolate eggs galore,
Is the cross of Calvary,
The sacrifice of our Lord —
For Jesus is the reason,
We all can celebrate
And come to Him to freely receive
His love and saving grace.
