Thought of the Day–4/14/18

Thought of the Day—It is simply incomprehensible to think that One so holy could take the place of one so unworthy…call it love…call it grace…call Him Jesus…

Thought of the Day–3/30/18

Thought of the Day—There resides in each of us a mystery.  It begins with an invisible tie that binds together the hearts of family.  Some members are bonded by blood while others are bonded by adoption, either by one of a legal means, marriage or other circumstances but each just as important and vital as the others; for their branches are grafted into the main family tree and the same lifeblood of family runs through each branch.  And even though there may be internal struggles within the family at times, when adversity comes that same love deepens, the impenetrable bond broadens and together becomes a formidable shield of defense and protection against its’ foe.  Today, let us not knit pick and illuminate our differences but instead, celebrate our uniqueness as part of the unwavering inclusion of family…

Thought of the Day–3/28/18

Thought of the Day—Why is it that we rush to immunize our children from diseases but leave them completely exposed to the negative influences of this world.  We, as adults, are the caretakers and gatekeepers of these young minds and we WILL be held accountable for corrupting them…

Thought of the Day–3/21/18

Thought of the Day—Don’t you just love spring?  Watching flowers pushing their way up out of the ground and blossoms blooming on the branches of trees and shrubs give everyone a renewed sense of hope and the promise of warmer days ahead.  Don’t you just find the feeling that the spring season invokes irresistible?  There is something else that brings about a similar feeling; recognition.  Just a simple “thank you”, “I appreciate what you do” or “good job” can lift a person’s spirit and bring a smile to their face.  It can make a difference in someone’s work performance, overall attitude or even general behavior.  And it’s free; it costs you nothing, nada, zilch! Give it a try and watch what happens; you just may be surprised by the response from your coworker, friend, neighbor, stranger OR your own family member.  After all, every day God gives us a visual “I think you’re pretty special”, by providing us with all the grandeur that nature provides.  Can’t you take the time to give a special “shout out” to those around you?  Kind words are like honey, sweet to the soul and healthy for the body. Proverbs 16:24 (NLT)

Thought of the Day–3/6/18

Thought of the Day—Do you want to have some fun today? Pick up a rock and throw it!  I don’t mean in a literal sense like at a passerby or your neighbor’s cat but into the placid pond of humanity called your circle of influence.  You know how, when a stone is tossed into a tranquil pond, the ripples start from the point of entry and keep edging outward?  That stone represents an act of kindness delivered to another; we never really know how much that one act has the same ripple effect to positively influence the lives of others.  That stone could represent the gift of time, a prayer lifted up, a card sent, a phone call made, picking up someone’s tab or simply giving a hug to someone you know is going through something difficult right now.  I think you get the idea.  And better yet, pick up a few pebbles at one time, toss them in and watch what happens…ripples in a pond…love in action…pick up a rock and toss it…today!
