Thoughts About Thanksgiving

Thoughts About Thanksgiving

Another year has come and gone,
Fleetingly it has passed.
Our joys...our heartaches...our triumphs...
Are fading into the past.

This moment in time is important!
This moment is all you have.
For family and friends soon leave you...
Without warning... in an instant... they’re gone!

Only memories linger...
Your choices in the maddening throng!
Every second and microsecond vital,
In the days that lie ahead.

At every milestone you’ll wonder...
About that moment in time long past.
Was I right? Was I wrong? Mistaken?
What if? What if? What if?

So make every day a good one.
Live without need for regrets!
Be thankful for the good times,
And forget about the rest!

Why Worry When You Can Pray

I got up this morning and I began reading my email. I get alerts from some conservative blogs and was reading about the affects of terrorism on the military written by Colonel Oliver North. His evalution of the situation was pretty grim. He was talking about our president and the upcoming trials for the World Trade Center terrorist Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other terrorists in New York City. As I was reading I thought how much fear people in this country have over the things that are happening in the world right now.  Suddenly a voice from my childhood rang out in my head and I heard Sister Chloe Lott singing an old song. Why worry when you can pray? Trust Jesus...let him be your stay. Don't be a doubting Thomas! Rest fully on His promise! Why worry...worry...worry...worry...when you can pray!

There are two important points to this story.
  1. What are you worried about? Pray...Pray...Pray!
  2. Our children need teaching songs. They learn from their music values they never forget!
Luke 21: 25-28

25And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
 26Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
 27And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
 28And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. 
Don't Worry...Pray!
