Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; I Corinthians 1:27 Below is a copy of an email that a friend of mine received recently from a friend. Her husband is currently the director of the Pregnancy Resource Center in Shelby, NC.   Here is the letter: I've been led to tell you this story. I know you work with women who find themselves in an unplanned pregnancy. But I can certainly see the potential of someone who may not have the faith and support system to seek out your center for guidance, if they were given difficult news about the baby they were carrying by doctors. My friend came to me in July, asking me to pray for her son, daughter-in-law and the baby her DIL was carrying. At 20 weeks, her DIL had an ultrasound and they were given the news that there was no amniotic fluid, which meant the baby's lungs would not develop. Since there was nothing the

Cranberry Sauce and Pumpkin Pie

Turkeys and cornucopias and pilgrim hats.  Seasoned stuffing hot from the oven.  Creamed onions. Cousins to play with.  Grandmothers and grandfathers with family gathered round.  Children waiting for the Great Pumpkin to rise over Charlie Brown's pumpkin patch and dads watching college football.  A day to relax and maybe rake leaves in the afternoon.  But Thanksgiving?  How much will our celebrations have to do with giving thanks?  A glance at the first Thanksgiving brings it all back.  On December 21, 1620 the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock.  Through the dead of winter the colony struggled with poor and meager food, strenuous labor, a biting wind that chilled to the bone, and ravages of disease.  Nearly half the 102 Mayflower passengers did not live to see spring refresh Cape Cod Bay.          BUT GOD sent Indians-Samoset, Squanto, and Massasoit to help the English settlers plant and hunt and fish.  The bountiful harvest that autumn led Governor Bradford to invite the Indians t

Praise and Magnify Him with Thanksgiving

Psalms 69:30 I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving. With gratitude I praise and thank almighty God. I am hoping to add a new item of praise and thanksgiving each day throughout the rest of this month. He is my Savior and I have a personal relationship with Him! He loves me and because He first loved me , I love Him! He died for me while I was yet in my sins. He who knew no sin became sin for me that He might bring me to God! He has revealed Himself to me through His Holy Word, the Bible. I have the privilege of getting to know Him more and more as I spend time reading and meditating upon it. He has promised me eternal life, the gift of God which comes only through His son, Jesus Christ. He gives wisdom and knowledge Romans 11:33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! He strengthens my inner man daily as I spend time feasting on His Wo

A Merry Heart Doeth Good . . .

SUNDAYS "BESTEST"    Church     One  Sunday morning, a mother went in to wake her son  and tell him it was time to get ready for  church, to which he replied, "I'm not  going."     "Why  not?" she  asked. I'll  give you two good reasons," he said. "(1), they  don't like me, and (2), I don't like  them."     His  mother replied, "I'll give YOU two good reasons  why YOU SHOULD go to church.  (1) You're 59  years old, and (2) you're the  pastor!" The  Picnic   A  Jewish Rabbi and a Catholic Priest met at the  town's annual 4th of July picnic. Old friends,  they began their usual  banter.     "This  baked ham is really delicious," the priest  teased the rabbi. "You really ought to try it. I  know it's against your religion, but I can't  understand why such a wonderful food should be  forbidden! You don't know what you're missing.  You just haven't lived until you'

Monday’s Manna - The Lord, my helper

Psalms 121:1-8  <<A Song of degrees.>> I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.  My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber. Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand. The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore. I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.  My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth My God, who made heaven and earth is my helper!  He is the LORD GOD!  ( Isaiah 40:12  Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed t
