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
Tomorrow is another day. Thank God. There is always hope that tomorrow will be better than today. Seriously though, I don't think very many things are going to get much better before the Lord comes back and makes things right. Satan has such a strong hold on this world right now. "Tomorrow is another day" came to my mind as I began writing this because of the controversy now over the movie Gone With the Wind which just happens to be my all time favorite movie. Now there are people who think it should be banned. It will surprise me if it doesn't happen. It's just crazy.
So, in spite of all the craziness going on in the world, we continue to encourage and inspire one another by linking here each week. Thank you for your encouragement.
What can I say? Another tragedy this week is all that is on the news today. It is so sad. It seems like every day it is either earthquakes, floods, fires, etc., or it is someone engaging in senseless violence. I was just thinking back about how news was shared back when I was growing up. There was always a newsreel at the movies, some news on the radio, and that was just about it. Now there is 24/7 news on TV, on the internet and seems like everyone is talking about everything that is going on both good and bad, but mostly bad. Would I want to go back to just the newsreels in movie theaters? No. But life was so much simpler then. As hard as it is to do, we need to keep our eyes on the good and keep praying that God will hurry up and set everything right. In the meantime, it is important that we keep encouraging one another and this is one place to do just that. Thank you to all who share with us here. You do make the days a little brighter.
I had intended to make this a special Father's Day post. We don't have many men who share here, but we do have some. To you guys who are dads, I want to wish you a happy day. To those whose fathers are no longer with us, I hope you have many good memories to look back on. Happy Father's Day, guys.
Last week we had 51 links. That is the most in a really long time. I am so pleased that so many are choosing to share with us here.
I thought perhaps there would be fewer linkups now that school is out and people are going on vacations, etc. I'm glad that is not the case. We need all the encouragement we can get these days. Thank you for providing that encouragement.
As I state each week, if you would like to share an inspirational post on your blog by linking it here, you will find instructions by clicking on Linking Info under the header picture.
Welcome everybody. Welcome June.
Can it be June already? This year will soon be half over. Seems like it just started. Life is flying by. We were shocked a few days ago when we learned a friend we have known for 25 years and who is younger than we are, died suddenly of a massive heart attack. She was so vibrant and alive and enjoyed life so much, and now her life here on earth is over. Makes one realize that it will soon be over for all of us. Sounds like I'm being morbid again. I'm really not. I know my friend is in a better place and I'm so thankful that our creator planned for a better life before any of us were even born. Thank you, God for sending Jesus to pay the price for all our sins. It is really mind boggling just to think about it.
In the meantime, while we are here on earth, we need to encourage one another and that is exactly what we do here by sharing each week. If you want to share, have never done so before, and need more information, just click on Linking Info under the header picture for instructions.
