Sometimes the real things we need to be grateful are right in front of us. They often, "Hide in plain sight." One example, for me, is my glasses. I was able to buy these glasses with a healthy tax check I got back in 2000. I got them in February and they have been to jail, prison, half-way house, work and they made it through, even up to this very minute. I have very poor vision and hope God sees fit to bless me with a new pair. But I must say that is a miracle in itself and I am grateful. What are you grateful for??

I Can Only Imagine
By Mercyme

I can only imagine
What it will be like
When I walk
By your side

I can only imagine
What my eyes will see
When your face
Is before me
I can only imagine

Surrounded by Your glory, what will my heart feel
Will I dance for you Jesus or in awe of you be still
Will I stand in your presence or to my knees will I fall
Will I sing hallelujah, will I be able to speak at all
I can only imagine

I can only imagine
When that day comes
And I find myself
Standing in the Son

I can only imagine
When all I will do
Is forever
Forever worship You
I can only imagine


I can only imagine [x2]

I can only imagine
When all I will do
Is forever, forever worship you


I made an alarming analogy in my head this morning as I thought about my son. He is 25 and has not had an easy life. He just moved from S.C. to N.Y. and does not have a job yet. He is back with old friends and I know he wants to get reaquainted with them. But he needs to get to work because I'm not in the position to take care of him. It was my brother and Mother who paid for his bus ticket to N.Y., not me. I'd give him the world if I could but would it be good for him? I began to run things through my mind about his situation and thought maybe I should send him some money to tide him over but he has not called me even to say hello, in several days. Why should I anticipate his needs when he can not even call and let me know if he is all right. Now, I have faith that he is all right but would like to hear his voice tell me he loves me and he is alright. As I thought about this, I realized that my relationship with The Heavenly Father, must be the same. He knows what I need but he wants to hear it from me and I need to go to him in prayer in the good and bad of every day. Selah

Bye-Bye Satan!!

God moves and works in mysterious ways. When I feel the Spirit in something, Satan tries to push me away from it as well as others. Satan doesn't like the truth and he really hates to hear music that is filled with the Holy Spirit.Click on the link to go to the site where you can hear Mindy Smith. This is for you blatfest!!! Let me know if you don't hear it after this cause I won't stop till you do hear it. God Bless Buddy!!!


2 Corinthians 13:11
Finally, brethren, farewell (rejoice)! Be strengthened (perfected, completed, made what you ought to be); be encouraged and consoled and comforted; be of the same [agreeable] mind one with another; live in peace, and [then] the God of love [Who is the Source of affection, goodwill, love, and benevolence toward men] and the Author and Promoter of peace will be with you.

According to Scripture, there are times when

you should not open your mouth…

When to Keep Silent:

In the heat of anger (Prov. 14:17)

When you don’t have all the facts (Prov. 18:13)

When you haven’t verified the story with two or more witnesses (Deut. 17:6; Matt. 18:16)

If your words will offend a weaker person (I Cor. 8:11)

When it is time to listen (Prov. 13:1)

When you are tempted to make light of holy things or to joke about sin (Ecc. 5:2; Prov. 14:9)

If you would be ashamed of your words later (Prov. 8:8)

If your words would convey the wrong impression (Prov. 17:27)

If the issue is none of your business (Prov. 14:10)

When you are tempted to tell an outright lie (Prov. 4:24)

If you are speaking because you are being bribed with goods (Ezek 22:12)

If your words will damage someone else’s reputation (Prov. 16:27)

If you words will damage a friendship (Prov. 16;28)

When you are feeling critical (James 3:9)

If you can’t say it without screaming (Prov. 25:28)

If your words will be a poor reflection of the Lord or your friends and family (I Pet. 2:21-23)

If you may have to eat your words later (Prov. 18:21)

If you have already said it more than one time (Prov. 19:13)

When you are tempted to flatter a wicked person (Prov. 24:24)

When you are supposed to be working instead (Prov. 14:23)

“Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles” (Prov. 21:23).

Do you need to repent of not keeping your lips zipped some time in the past?

Now is the time to ask the Lord for forgiveness.

When I cried out to God to help me get off heroin, he did. I went to prison, thy will be done with my family Father but I ask as in Job, please not allow them to be hurt.

Thank you, Heavenly Father for the answer to my prayers. Thank you, for my family who has come through for my son.
Thank you, for your patience with me Lord.
Thank you, Lord for seeing me through yet another crisis.
Thank you, King of Kings for my family!

Take the sins of the father off my babies!!

Lord, time's ticking on my life. I need to get my house in order. I have my convictions, this is my last hoorah. Heavenly Father, I ask you to help my children. They are the way they are because of me. I ask your forgiveness, again and again, and for this burden to be lifted. They are what they are because of what I put them through, because they did without love and affection sometimes, not out of choice but out of fear. You know this Lord. I did not know I had choices then, but I do now. My free will asks you to right this wrong I have done to these children, they do not deserve the lives they are leading. Let the sins of the father not be visited on them any longer, in Jesus name I ask you. Let the curse be gone, let their lineage be blessed, let the chain of hell, that they've lived, stop here. I believe in prayer and I believe in Divine Intervention, Lord. I believe in you enough that I will lay my very life down now, would I die for you now...Yes! If asked I will lay my life and let it be known that if you could stop my heart and send me to hell for the retribution of my children, then stop my heart cause it is barely beating this is so very painful. Yes, Lord I was so proud I did not cry and I did not cry out to you, but I am now. Please bless my children, please let them know some happiness in their lives, as they've known very little. Heavenly Father, please hear my prayers. I cry from the depths of my very soul to you right now, Sweet Jesus, please hear me. Let me rest Lord. Give me wisdom, give me strength and before I die, give me the knowledge that my babies will be alright. I want them to know you, My Lord. I want them to have what I have, a guiding force, a beacon in the night, never alone, take my hand and lead me to the right path. I will listen to you my Lord, I will not continue to ignore or give you lip service. I stand before you a hopeless sinner, please forgive me and my children and theirs. I ask all this in Jesus's name. Amen and Amen

This Lord, is someone whom I am grateful for. I ask you to lay your hand upon him and his situation. Lord, my King of Kings, you have the power to do all things and I ask that you see fit to bless this man...if only to ease his pain and worry.
Yeshua Ha' Machiah, I worship no other God, there is no other God and that is why I come to you, the Great Physician and Great Counselor and I humbly ask you to place your hand upon this man. He has been an inspiration to me, as well as others. We both teeter through this life but we know who our God is and will shout it from the rooftops, unashamed. Heavenly Father, I ask all this in Yeshua's name, may it be so. Amen and Amen!!
