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

Welcome Back

It's already the end of August. Seems like people generally start looking forward to Fall and talking about it about this time of the year. Maybe there is just so much more important stuff going on that the season of the year just isn't that important. Actually it isn't officially Fall until almost the end of September, but here in America, it starts "unofficially" after Labor Day which is Monday.

The number who link here has been down this summer but it was up again last week. I'm glad. I hope more and more people come here again and again to be blessed by reading what is shared by you. We need all the encouragement we can get. Thank you for your faithfulness.

How Long?

Revelation 20:3-5 
Then I saw thrones and seated on them were those who had been given authority to judge. I also saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of the testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. 
I have been aware of this scripture for many many years. It makes more sense to me now than it ever has in the past. I had always thought of beheading as being something from the distant past (very distant) and that it doesn't happen in modern times. In recent weeks and months we have heard of many beheadings. Those who do it are doing it in the name of Allah. Evidently it will get worse as time goes on until the end. Just when that will be no one knows  only God. It certainly makes one ponder the thought that our days on this earth are numbered and we need to concentrate more on the after life, and less on this present life. Christians are being severely persecuted in the middle east and it may be just a matter of time until it happens here in America, or wherever you live. 

In the meantime, we can encourage one another by sharing here. If you have not linked before, and would like more information, just click on Linking Info under the header picture for instructions.

Welcome

I was honored to receive a special blogging award from Hattie this week.
I've received a lot of blogger awards in years past, but not in a very long time. As soon as I received this award, The thought came to my mind that all of you dear people who link here each week are the reason this is an inspiring blog. So, I feel I should share it with you. All of you have inspiring blogs. If you will click on Hattie's name in the first sentence, it will take you to the award. One of the rules of the award is to chose 15 other bloggers and pass it on to them. Of course I can't choose just 15 bloggers so I'm offering to pass this on to any of you who would like to receive it.

I know you all, like me, are offering up many prayers for so many at this time. The whole world is in such turmoil. And, of course, there are individuals we all know who need our prayers and concern. Thank you for being an inspiration to me as well as to each other.

Welcome Friends

It has now been a little over 6 years since Ginger and I started this blog. Some of you have been here from the beginning and some have only recently started sharing with us. I love and appreciate each one of you. Thank you for your faithfulness. I think this is a very busy time for many with last minute vacations and school starting. Maybe that accounts for the fact that we had fewer links last week than we have had since we first started linking. As you may know, a lot of bloggers have stopped blogging or almost stopped and it is due largely to Facebook. I think that may also be a factor. I have to confess that I spend a lot of time on Facebook now and have neglected my blogs. I have five blogs but this is the only one I post on regularly and I don't get around to visiting all the links like I did the first few years. I'm glad there are still a number of people who do keep blogging and I'm glad so many of you choose to share here.

We have new prayer requests from Anne. Please click on Prayer Requests under the header picture to see these as well as other requests.

Welcome Back

Hard to believe it is August already. Where did July go? Where has the year gone? Lots of schools have already started and others are getting ready to start. When I was in school, it always started in September, right after Labor Day. It still seems to me like that's when it should start. Maybe I'm getting old.

There is so much turmoil in the world today and seems to get worse as time goes by. I think we need to understand what is going on, pray about it, and not give up hope. I'm glad this is a place where we can come and share inspirational posts that help to give us hope in these dark days. Thank you for sharing with us each week.
