Kindness is wisdom.
Philip James Bailey
Live in harmony with your beliefs and ideals.
Let us remember that, as much has been given us, much will be expected from us, and that true homage comes from the heart as well as from the lips, and shows itself in deeds.
HAPPY WEDNESDAY !!
and HAPPY BIRTHDAY DS#1
May the dear Lord bless you today and always !
I often wonder how I can possibly have a son over 30, It seems like just yesterday he was small enough to hold in my arms. I actually have 6 babes now over 30 .Only the baby of the family is younger and not by much.
Time flies by so fast! I can only say if you still have children at home, enjoy them. Before you know it they are grown up and gone.
Our fair weather continues today and later on this evening a cool front is supposed to be coming in. So we’ll go down in the 70’s for a couple of days. I don’t mind that at all !
Have a great day all ! Another wonderful one on the Way !
Please pray for God's protection of our troops and HIS wisdom for their commanders.
Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need. I ask this in the name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
God, I thank You for today, for the ways You will bless me, and for the ways that I will serve others in Your name

RECIPES FOR COUNTRY FAIR FOODS http://www.oldfashionedliving.com/country-fairs.html
pukka \PUHK-uh\, adjective:
1. Authentic; genuine.
2. Good of its kind; first-class.
Pukka comes from Hindi pakka, "cooked, ripe," from Sanskrit pakva-, from pacati, "he cooks."
Though my father and mother forsake me, the Lord will receive me.
Loneliness is a feeling of being cut off, disconnected from, and alienated towards, other people." Oddly enough, one can feel loneliness in a large city, surrounded by crowds of people.
It is totally different from being alone, for sometimes you are alone by choice, and it can be pleasant. Loneliness is when you are alone and unwilling to be so.
It is important that we learn to cope with periods of being alone. Today's scripture gives us a good answer. It reminds us that no relationship on earth is secure
David probably wrote Psalm 27, from which we read today's scripture. David was feeling alone and deserted by everyone, but he began the Psalm "The Lord is my light and my salvation —— whom shall I fear?"
He ended the Psalm by saying three things.
1. Wait for the Lord. The Lord will always be with you.
2. Be strong. Do your part by trusting God with strong faith.
3. Take heart. Expect good things to happen.
