August 29

Greetings: God bless you this day!

THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
The eyes of understanding
Are the eyes of Jesus, you see.
He lived in human flesh,
Just like you and me.
(First verse of today's poem)
From August 24, 2012

SCRIPTURE:
We know the Son of God has come  and has given us
understanding, so we may know him who is true.
1 John 5:20

Jesus understands, because he has been tired, lonely, hungry, poor,
betrayed and has suffered loss. He has cried, smiled and been angry,
But most of all, He has loved, loved enough to die on a cross for each
of us!

Know I prayed for you today. Blessings-Freda

That desperately need Me!"

THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
Worthwhile...
When it comes to the end.
Worthwhile...
Time spent, with family and friend!
(Last verse of today's poem)

SCRIPTURE:
(God's Commandments)
Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home
and when you walk along the road. Deuteronomy 6:7

It has been said that no one on their death-bed ever said, "I wish I had
spent more time at the office!" Time spent with our children is certainly
worthwhile.

Know I prayed for you today. Blessings-Freda
