January 20

Greetings: God bless you this day!
We lost a dear sister in Christ this week, Joann Lawyer.
Lost to us, but not to God.

THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
A closing door...
We've not lost the race.
A closing door...
We'll see God face to face.
(Last verse of today's poem)

SCRIPTURE:
I am going to prepare a place for you, I will come back
and take you to be with me and where I am you will be
also. John 14:3

What a wonderful promise, to think that Jesus is preparing a home
for each of us and while the door to this life has closed for Joann
the door to eternity has opened for her.

Know I prayed for you today. Blessings-Freda

THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
I woke up this morning
There are many who did not.
I woke up this morning
I'll not complain about my lot.

This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad
in it. Psalm 118:24

God woke you up this morning, He still has work for you to do.
So smile, give someone a hug, tell those you love, that you do love
them, be polite to everyone you meet. spread love and joy in a love-
less and joyless world!

Greetings: God bless you this day!

THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
Whatever our age or situation in life, with God's power,  it's never
too late to change. ( David McCasland-Our Daily Bread)

SCRIPTURE:
If you really change your ways and deal justly with each other, I
will let you live in this place. Jeremiah 7: 5 & 7

Pray for our country. We have a chance for change, but there are
so many who want to shipwreck any changes God has given us.

Know I prayed for you today. Blessings-Freda

Greetings: God bless you this day!
Today is our 63rd Wedding Anniversary

THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
Time slips away
I was a bride yesterday,
Time slips away
Married sixty-three years today.
(First verse of today's poem)
http://fredasgardenofpoetry.blogspot.com

SCRIPTURE:
Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?
Matthew 6:27

When you get older you really do what the song says...
"Living By Faith." You think every Holiday and every
Anniversary..."Will this be the last one we celebrate together?
For this new year, I'm going to just thank God for each day He
gives us!

Know I prayed for you today. Blessings-Freda

In Jesus, we can find lasting peace with God and harmony
with each other. (David McCaslnd-Our Daily Bread)

SCRIPTURE:

wall of separation. Ephesians 2:14

In the midst of a world that knows no peace, we can find lasting

January 14

Greetings; God bless you this day!

THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
What you see, is not all you get
In this life we call a race.
What you see, is not all you get
You will see God face to face.
(Last verse in today's poem)
http://fredasgardenofpoetry.blogspot.com

SCRIPTURE:
Now faith is being sure of what you hope for and certain
of what you do not see. Hebrews 11:1

No matter what we may be going through in this life, it will not
matter when we see God face to face. Paul said "if for only in this
life we have hope in Christ we are to be pitied. But thanks be to
God he gives us victory through our Lord Jesus Christ"
1 Corinthians 15: 19 and 57 Read this whole chapter to see that...
"What we see is not all we get."

Know I prayed for you today. Blessings-Freda
