It's God's love!

Today as I was awoken by the beautiful sun peeping through my bedroom curtains, the love of God was brought to me in my thoughts.  For it is only that He loves us that we are awoken each and every morning and given a new day.  I see his love for us in all that is around me.  Be it in the colors of the sky, the land, the trees, the grass, the flowers, the animals, the people and so much more.  

In the bible we are told in Jeremiah  31:3 The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.  His love is an everlasting love, there is no other kind of love that is like that.  You will not find a love anywhere that will even match His love for us by even an inch of measure. The love that God has for us is far beyond our comprehension.  

Think about this, God loved us so much that he gave His son for our sins. God even loves us when we are being disobedient. Read over in Hebrews 12 to see how His love for us motivates His discipline for us as well.  We as humans respect our parents when they discipline us, with that being said should we not respect and follow God's training us with more respect? Our earthy fathers discipline only hurts for a short time, and they do what they feel is best in our lives, but God's discipline for us is always right and on time when needed.  His love always is there through the good, the bad, and the ugly.  It is more than any of our circumstances, He covers them all with His love.  1Peter 4:8 And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.

So remember that He is always with you no matter what and His love is never ending for you.  Psalms 42:8 Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the day time, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life.

It is so good to know that God loves me in the day time and at night time, as I pray unto Him.  

My prayer is that this post will be of some help to someone, I pray that if someone has no one to love that they will know that God loves them. Amen.

This week in our Pre-school Journey

This past week was a great week for us on our pre-schooling journey.  We went and visited our local caverns.  The cavern is called Linville Cavern, it is located in McDowell County NC. It was discovered by a man named Henry E. Colton in the early 1800's while on a fishing trip.  The inside is beautiful.  Filled with stalactites, running water, a bottomless pool, and even bats in the winter months.

Also this week we got in quiet a few books in for reading.  My little one loves to read. I am glad that he does, I am excited to learn him to read. We are already practicing with stories that have clue pictures of the words. He loves that, and it gets him involved with the story as well.  The books we read this week are listed below.

1. Yertle the Turtle and other stories
2. Chicka Chicka 123
4.Kate and the Beanstalk

My prayer is this will be of help to you in some way to get you reading with your little ones and to go exploring.

Its been a while

Hey there all, its been a few months since I sat down and actually wrote anything in this blog. I was thinking about just getting rid of this since I never really use it, but the Lord spoke to my heart and I know that I can use it to be of some good to someone out there that may not know Christ.  I am forever running across blogs of people that help me, so I am praying this blog will do the same thing for someone. Being busy as I am, makes it hard to sit down sometimes and write.  I love to write, and put my words out on something that I can see and read for myself.  I have several pen-pals and I enjoy writing to them, however it is sporadic.   Life happens to us all. Sometimes our lives get busier than they should be. The bible says in:

Proverbs 23:4  Labor not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom

I can assure you that  I am not being busy because of getting rich.  I take things upon myself mostly for what we call around here a "good ol' boy deed".  In other words I help people because it is in my nature to do so. I am a servant, always have been.  Not for payment either. The bible says in:

Colossians 3:12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;

Which means I have a yearning for compassion, and its not merely an act, but in my spirit and affection.  My heart is filled full of compassion for those that I serve.  With meekness, because it is one of the traits that God has, I am to make an effort to make it a part of me also. To be a servant you must be able to humble yourself. It doesn't come naturally, it is a trait that is to be worked on; for our pride gets in the way most times.  We must bring ourselves low in order to get to that place where we can serve.

So if I get to busy to write, just know that somewhere in this world I am helping someone that needs that little extra care.  Pray for me, and I will pray for you.
