He maketh the barren woman to keep house,
and to be a joyful mother of children. 
Praise ye the LORD. 
Psalm 113:9

No Love like a Mother's Love

There is no love, like a mother's love,
no stronger bond on earth...
like the precious bond that comes from God,
to a mother, when she gives birth.

A mother's love is forever strong,
never changing for all time...
and when her children need her most,
a mother's love will shine.

God bless these special mothers,
God bless them every one...
for all the tears and heartache,
and for the special work they've done.

When her days on earth are over,
a mother's love lives on...
through many generations,
with God's blessings on each one.

Be thankful for our mothers,
for they love with a higher love...
from the power God has given,
and the strength from up above.

Jill Lemming

Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
Proverbs 31:25-28

To all the Mothers out there,

I want to say thank you to all my followers for taking the time to read my blogs.  
I would love to hear your comments.  God bless you.

And remember...

This Good Friday
I want to share these thoughts from 
the devotional book by 
Charles Spurgeon:

"Is it not strange, the darkest hour
That ever dawned on sinful earth,
Should touch the heart with softer power,
For comfort, than an angel's mirth?
That to the Cross the mourner's eye should turn,
Sooner than where the stars of Bethlehem burn?"

The reason for Christmas is Easter.
For there to be an Easter, 
there must have been
a Calvary.

If we truly want to see the love 
that the Father God has for us,
we must look at Calvary.  
He gave His precious Son 
to suffer agony,
that we cannot comprehend,
for us.

How we should thank and Him 
for His love and never forget that

"Jesus is the reason for the season".

The world is going through troubling times
 and we face an uncertainties every day.  
The devil comes to Christians in a time like this 
and whispers things that cause fear.
He wants us to forget how big our God is.
He tells us that God doesn't really care.
He says that our world is going to collapse.

He doesn't tell us that God is still in charge.

Recently my mind has been going back 
to some of the older hymns.
One that we used to sing 
when I was young (a loong time ago) was 

It reminds us that as Christians 
we serve the ruler of heaven and earth.
Nothing touches us without His consent.
He IS still on the throne and 
rules with a heart of love and mercy.


Have you started for glory and heaven,
Have you left this old world far behind;
In your heart is the Comforter dwelling,
Can you say, :Praise the Lord, He is mine;"
Have the ones that once walked on the highway,
Gone back, and you seem all alone?
Keep your eyes on the prize, for the home in the skies.
God is still on the throne.
God is still on the throne,
And He will remember His own;
Though trials may press us and burdens distress us,
He never will leave us alone;
God is still on the throne,
He never forsaketh His own;
His promise is true, He will not forget you,
God is still on the throne.
Burdened soul, is your heart growing weary
With the toil and the heat of the day;
Does it seem that your path is more thorny
As you journey along on life’s way?
Go away and in secret before Him
Tell your grief to the Savior alone;
He will lighten your care, for He still answers prayer;
God is still on the throne.
 You may live in a tent or a cottage,
Unnoticed by those who pass by;
But a mansion for you He is building
In that beautiful city on high;
It will outshine the wealth and the splendor
Of the richest on earth we have known;
He’s the architect true, and He’s building for you;
God is still on the throne.
He is coming again, is the promise
To disciples when He went away;
In like manner as He has gone from you,
You will see Him returning some day;
Does His tarrying cause you to wonder,
Does it seem He’s forgotten His own?
His promise is true, He is coming for you;
God is still on the throne. 

…the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, 
and giveth it to whomsoever he will. 
Daniel 4:25 & 32

May God be with each one of you and keep your eyes on Jesus.

P.S. I would love to hear from you.  Please leave a comment.  God bless you.

I would like to share a devotional that helped me through 
some tough times.   I hope it will be a reminder that God loves 
and cares about everything that happens in our life.

"This thing is from me.  1 Kings 12:24

Life's disappointments are veiled love's appointments.  Rev. C. A. Fox

My child, I have a message for you today; let me whisper it in your ear, 
that it may gild with glory any storm clouds which may arise, 
and smooth through places upon which you may have to tread.  
It is short, only five words, but let them sink into your inmost soul; 
use them as a pillow upon which to rest your weary head.  
This thing is from me.

Have you ever thought of it, that 
all that concerns you concerns Me too? 

 For, "he that toucheth you, toucheth the apple of mine eye
(Zechariah 2:8)  

You are very precious in My sight.  (Isaiah 43:4) 
Therefore, it is My special delight to educate you.

I would have you learn when temptations assail you, 
and the "enemy comes in like a flood," 
that this thing is from Me, 
that your weakness needs my might, 
and your safety lies in letting Me fight for you.

Are you in difficult circumstances, 
surrounded by people who do not understand you, 
who never consult your taste, who put you in the background?  

This thing is from Me. 
 I am the God of circumstances.  
Thou camest not to thy place by accident,
 it is the very place God meant for thee.

Have you not asked to be made humble?  
See then, I have placed you in the very school 
where this lesson is taught; your surroundings 
and companions are only working out My will.

Are you in money difficulties?  
Is it hard to make both ends meet?  
This thing is from Me, for I am our purse-bearer
 and would have you draw from and depend upon Me.  
My supplies are limitless (Philippians 4:19).  
I would have you prove my promises.  
Let it not be said of you, 
"In this thing ye did not believe the Lord your God
(Deuteronomy 1:32).

Are you passing though a night of sorrow?  
This thing is from Me.  
I am the Man of Sorrows and acquainted with grief.  
I have let earthy comforters fail you, that by turning to Me 
you may obtain everlasting consolation 
(2 Thessalonians 2:16, 17). 

 Have you longed to do some great work for Me 
and instead have been laid aside on a bed of pain and weakness?  
This thing is from Me.  

I could not get your attention in your busy days 
and I want to teach you some of my deepest lessons.  
"They also serve who only stand and wait."  
Some of my greatest workers are those 
shut out from active service, 
that they may learn to wield the weapon of all-prayer.

This day I place in your hand this pot of holy oil.  
Make use of it freely,My child. 
 Let every circumstance that arises, 
every word that pains you, 
every interruption that would make you impatient, 
every revelation of your weakness be anointed with it  
The sting will go as you learn to see Me in all things"
 Laura A. Garter Snow

" 'This is from Me,' the Saviour said,
   As bending low He kissed my brow,
For One who loves you thus has led.
   Just rest in Me, be patient now,
Your Father knows you have need of this,
   Tho' why perchance you cannot see.--
Grieve not for things you've seemed to miss.
   The thing I send is best for thee.'

"Then , looking through my tears, I plead,
   'Dear Lord, forgive, I did no know,
'Twill not be hard since Thou dost tread,
   Each path before me here below.
And for my good this thing must be,]
   His grace sufficient for each test.
So still I'll sing, "Whatever be
   God's way for me is always best. " ' "

From "Streams in the Desert"  Volume 1
