Attitude of Gratitude


(1) My own Bible to read

(2) Heat on this cold day

(3) A Christian husband who loves me dearly

(4) Three boys who are God’s gift

(5) Christmas time to celebrate Jesus birth

(6) A New Year to begin again

(7) A Pastor who stands on the word of God

(8) A loving church home

(9) My friends who love me for me

(10) My parents are still alive at the age of 80

It’s so nice to join our hearts (and blogs/comments) together and “raise our praise” of THANKSGIVING TO GOD!

Have Thine Own Way, Lord


Have Thine own way, Lord! Have Thine own way!
Thou art the Potter, I am the clay.
Mold me and make me after Thy will,
While I am waiting, yielded and still.

Have Thine own way, Lord! Have Thine own way!
Search me and try me, Master, today!
Whiter than snow, Lord, wash me just now,
As in Thy presence humbly I bow.

Have Thine own way, Lord! Have Thine own way!
Wounded and weary, help me, I pray!
Power, all power, surely is Thine!
Touch me and heal me, Savior divine.

Have Thine own way, Lord! Have Thine own way!
Hold o’er my being absolute sway!
Fill with Thy Spirit ’till all shall see
Christ only, always, living in me.

Home-spun Christmas Traditions Blog Carnival at Mentoring Moments


Mentoring Moments is having a Christmas Carnival. They are telling some of their favorite Christmas traditions and asking what are some simple things we do at home during Christmas. Please join us as we reminisce about Christmas past and present. These special memories don’t cost much, yet they enrich our lives in priceless ways.

What are your home-spun Christmas traditions? We’d love to hear about the little things you do at home to make the season special.

Some things we have done are go through drive-thru Nativity Scenes, go through open Christmas Homes, make special goodies all through the season, go to Sunday School Christmas Parties, visit far-away friends and family, help feed the homeless, and participate in a Super Saturdays for children at City of Refuge. These are children who are bused in from the surrounding housing projects. There will be lots of kids in need of attention — some  in need of nothing more than hugs & smiles and comfortable laps to sit on. Some will want to just talk to someone because they don’t get much of that at home.  Others will want to color and draw.  Then there will be all kinds of  indoor sports activities for them that morning.  At some point in the morning we will join them for a kids service conducted by their children’s pastor and the team there. This will be followed by lunch preparations by our team. Once lunch is ready, we will serve it to the children.
