You alone are the Lord. You made the skies and the heavens and all the stars. You made the earth and the seas and everything in them. You preserve them all, and the angels of heaven worship you. ~Nehemiah 9:6

Tribulation


Jesus said. "In this world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer. I have overcome the world." (John 16:33)

What a true statement this is. Every day there are things that happen that we say, "That is just not right. That should not happen", but it does. How do people who do not have this hope survive? Our attitude will have a lot to do with how we see adversity. Do we see it as an opportunity to rely more on God than we have been doing? Do we just give up and say the world is just going to hell and I'm not going to think about it? What is the answer? I believe the last part of the scripture answers it. "Be of good cheer. I have overcome the world." Perhaps if we repeat this to ourselves often, it will "sink in" and we will see the light at the end of the tunnel. Remember, Jesus is THE LIGHT.

Traffic Feed

From time to time, I like to look at the traffic feed near the bottom on the right column. I'm always amazed to see all the different places from which people are coming to this blog. Not just people from the United States, but from all over the world. It still boggles my mind to realize that just a few short years ago this would have been impossible. It wouldn't have even come to our minds. The internet really is an amazing thing. And the fact that it can be instantly translated into another language is just as amazing. Wow.

So no matter where you come from, I'm glad you're here reading this right now - perhaps even in another language. Inspiration is not just for Americans but for the whole world. I hope you will be inspired by what others have shared here. Everyone is invited to participate.

On My Way to Heaven

Another inspirational video.

The older I get and the more of my friends and relatives have died, I'm thinking more about heaven than I did when I was younger. I'm sure this is the case with many people. My hubby is a retired pastor. He doesn't preach anymore but he still does memorial services. So many former members of our congregation had requested years ago that they want Clif to do their memorial service. This Saturday morning will be one of those times. It will be for the wonderful Christian man who played the piano at our last church  He didn't just "play" the piano, he was a great piano player and was also a great singer and an elder at the church. We had the service for his wife almost exactly a year ago. They were both a few years younger than I am. Life is short. When you're young you think you will never get old, and then before you know it, it happens. You're old. I'm so thankful that we have this blessed hope of heaven because of the finished work of Jesus on the cross. The above video is a great reminder of that fact.

OK, now it's time to begin linking. Thank you for your participation.

He's Alive


Thank you, Dolly. I thought this was so appropriate for Easter.

I hope everyone has a blessed Easter weekend. This is a good time to share inspirational posts. Of course every weekend is a good time, but I think Easter is extra special.

I Can Only Imagine



Just returned from watching this movie. Wow, it was really powerful. I'm wondering if Hollywood will ever wake up and realize what most people want to see these days. They live in their own little bubble. I highly recommend it. I've loved the song for years and now I know the story behind the song.

Thank you for your condolence comments last week. We went over to California for her memorial service. It was a quick trip but good to see other relatives there. I made a DVD of Vivian's life which they showed at the memorial service. Anybody else out there make DVDs on their computer? I've made over 30 in the past several years. If you haven't tried it and have the programs on your computer to facilitate it, you should try it. It really is a satisfying hobby.

OK. Now it's time to link. Thank you again for your steadfast loyalty to this endeavor.
