Cling to the Bible, though all else be taken;
Lose not its promises precious and sure;
Souls that are sleeping, its echoes awaken,
Drink from the fountain, so peaceful, so pure.

Lamp for the feet that in byways have wandered,
Guide for the youth that would otherwise fall;
Hope for the sinner whose best days are squandered,
Staff for the aged, and best Book of all.

M. J. Smith

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, 
a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, 
rightly dividing the word of truth.
2 Timothy 2:15

I want to share  a couple cards I have made:

Have a great week and thanks for visiting.

The years had left scars.  The scars had left pain.
How could He love me, I wasn’t the same.
I knew I should pay, and I knew the price
For justice and law demanded my life.
But His tender heart, heard my desperate cry
And saw my past through His merciful eyes.
Though I was broken and so very lost
Jesus looked past my sin and my faults.
The justice of God saw what I had done
But mercy was granted through His precious Son.

Not what I was, but what I could be
That is how Jesus saw me.

Wherever you’ve gone, you can’t go too far
That His eyes of mercy can’t see where you are.
He loves you too much, to leave you alone.
His arms of mercy can reach where you’ve gone.
And His heart cries out, to your heart today
See yourself through His eyes, then you will say.
“Sin has ruined my future and stolen my soul
But through Jesus’ blood, I am made whole.
Though I was broken and lost and undone
Mercy was given through the death of His Son.”

Not what I was, but what I could be
That’s how Jesus saw me.

The justice of God sees what you have been,
And justice is waiting for you for your sin.
Your life can be changed and that sentence be gone
For by Jesus’ shed blood the victory’s been won.
Come to Him for mercy, His arms open wide
Are longing to hold you, that’s why He died.
He sees you and loves you and cares about you
He offers His mercy today to you too.
Not what I was, but what I could be
That’s how Jesus saw me.

Have A Blessed Easter


The love of God is greater far
Than tongue or pen can ever tell;
It goes beyond the highest star,
And reaches to the lowest hell;
The guilty pair, bowed down with care,
God gave His Son to win;
His erring child He reconciled,
And pardoned from his sin.
Oh, love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure—
The saints’ and angels’ song.
When hoary time shall pass away,
And earthly thrones and kingdoms fall,
When men who here refuse to pray,
On rocks and hills and mountains call,
God’s love so sure, shall still endure,
All measureless and strong;
Redeeming grace to Adam’s race—
The saints’ and angels’ song.
Could we with ink the ocean fill,
And were the skies of parchment made,
Were every stalk on earth a quill,
And every man a scribe by trade;
To write the love of God above
Would drain the ocean dry;
Nor could the scroll contain the whole,
Though stretched from sky to sky.
Frederick Lehman

For God so loved the world, that he gave
his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth
in him should not perish, but have
everlasting life. For God sent not his Son
 into the world to condemn the world; 
but that the world through him might be saved.
John  3:16 

Because of God's love for mankind, 
He sent His Son, Jesus, 
to be the sacrificial lamb
offered for our sins.  

It is only because of His 
death and resurrection that 
we are able to become 
the Children of God.

The two most wonderful
days of the year are
Christmas and Easter.

Christmas when He came 
to earth as a baby and
Easter when He arose from the grave.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field,
 keeping watch over their flock by night. 
  And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, 
and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: 
and they were sore afraid. 
 And the angel said unto them, 
Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, 
which shall be to all people. 
 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, 
which is Christ the Lord. 
 And this shall be a sign unto you; 
Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, 
lying in a manger. 
And suddenly there was with the angel 
a multitude of the heavenly host 
praising God, and saying, 
Glory to God in the highest, 
and on earth peace, good will toward men. 
 And it came to pass, 
as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, 
the shepherds said one to another,
 Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, 
and see this thing which is come to pass, 
which the Lord hath made known unto us. 
 And they came with haste, and found
 Mary, and Joseph, 
and the babe lying in a manger. 
  And when they had seen it, 
they made known abroad the saying 
which was told them concerning this child. 
 And all they that heard it wondered at those things 
which were told them by the shepherds. 
  But Mary kept all these things, 
and pondered them in her heart. 
  And the shepherds returned,
 glorifying and praising God for all the things 
that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them. 
Luke 2:8-20

He was in the world, and the world was made by him, 
and the world knew him not. 
He came unto his own, 
and his own received him not. 
  But as many as received him, 
to them gave he power to become the sons of God, 
even to them that believe on his name: 
John 1:10-12

Wishing each of you 
a wonderful Christmas
blessed by His presence.

A Good Thanksgiving


Said old gentleman Ray on a Thanksgiving Day:
“If you want a good time, then give something away.”
So he sent a fat turkey to shoemaker Price,
And the shoe maker said: “What a big bird! How nice!
With such a good dinner before me I ought
To give Widow Lee the small chicken I bought.”
“This fine chicken, oh, see!” said the sweet Widow Lee,
“And the kindness that sent it – how precious to me!
“I’ll give washwoman Biddy my big pumpkin pie.”
“And, oh, sure,” Biddy said, “ ’tis the queen o” all pies!
Just to look at its yellow face gladdens my eyes!
Now it’s my turn, I think, and a sweet ginger cake
For the motherless Finnigan children I’ll bake.”
Cried the Finnigan children, Rose, Denny and Hugh:
“It smells sweet of spice, and we’ll carry a slice
To little lame Jake, who has nothing that’s nice.”
“Oh, I thank you and thank you!” said little lame Jake;
“What a bootiful, bootiful, bootiful cake!
And oh, such a big slice!  I’ll save all the crumbs,
And give them to each little sparrow that comes.”
And the sparrows, they twittered, as if they would say,
Like old gentleman Ray: “On a Thanksgiving Day,
If you want a good time, then give something away.”

Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.
2 Corinthians 9:15 

To all my faithful followers,
I am sorry that I have been absent for a while.
Sometimes life gets in the way of what we want to do,
but I am richly blessed and thankful
for all my wonderful Lord is doing for me.

Here’s wishing you and your family many
