There once was a story about a girl who all day long looked for ladybugs and couldn't find any, soon she fell asleep under the Tuscan sun and to her surprise woke to find a ladybug on her arm.

"He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters."
Psalm 23:2

Ms Marqueese de Moth

It seems to me people take more care of their cars than they do of their own persons. We take our cars to get serviced regularly but what of our bodies, many exercise and eat well but do they give their bodies time to rest and refresh?

"Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labour and do all your work but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall do no work, neither you nor your manservant or your maidservant, nor your animals, nor the alien within your gates."
Exodus Ch 20:8-10

"Honor the Lord with your possessions,
And with the firstfruits of all your increase;
So your barns will be filled with plenty,
And your vats will overflow with new wine."

Oh Magoo You've Done it Again !

Perhaps this is a picture of the son
of Mr Magoo. I used to love watching this cartoon series many
moons ago. It was about an old man who had trouble
seeing, and wore a pair of very thick glasses.
Mr Magoo got himself through lots of would be,  could be,  disasters,
just in the nick of time and he was not aware of the danger
because he couldn't see.

I guess he made lots of mistakes but it never worried him.
It is ok if the house is untidy as long as it is reasonably clean,
It is ok if you make a mistake at work for that is how you learn
It is ok if you fail an exam for you will pass your course if you work a little harder.

"All things I have seen in the days of my vanity:
there is a just man that perisheth in his righteousness,
and there is a wicked man that prolongeth
his life in his wickedness.

Be not righteous over much;
neither make yourself over wise:
why shouldest thou destroy thyself?
Ecclesiastes 7:15,16

E in camera sua a riposare.

On Tuesdsay, a friend told me that on a flight from Dubai to
Frankfurt , she engaged in a conversation with a woman who told her
her husband had decided that he no longer wished to be married to her.
They had two children.

My friend asked her if she was a Christian,
would she like her to pray for her.....
Four years later this woman wrote to my friend
and said no-one had ever asked her that question and it challenged her...

She must have sought God and sought the truth for she found faith
and now serves Him for she wrote to my friend after getting her sons to help
source her and told her.

"In returning and rest
you shall be saved;
In quietness and confidence
shall be your strength."
Isaiah 29:15

Una and her Bike

Our son James is in Niger in Africa and a couple of months ago a missionary family gave him a kitten. James was quietly devastated last week when "Mai-kuka" his kitten died of a scorpion bite, he (the kitten) had only recently survived a snake bite. Hence I was greatly comforted when James told me that one night after the kitten died he flicked through his Bible only to stumble on the passage below in Ezekiel. The Lord is in control so why should we fear for the safety of our children...

""And you, son of man, do not be afraid of them nor be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns are with you and you dwell among scorpions; do not be afraid of their words or dismayed by their looks, though they are a rebellious house." Ezekiel2:6

"Blessed is he who considers the poor;
The Lord will deliver him in time of trouble.
The Lord will preserve him
and keep him alive,
And he will be blessed on the earth;
You will not deliver him to the will of his enemies.
The Lord will strengthen him
on his bed of illness;
You will sustain him on his sickbed."
Psalm 41:1-3

This is a promise for you James for your work is nothing else but consideration for the poor and God is not a man that He should lie, He keeps His promises!
