                                       The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads

                                nothing but newspapers.                                                                 Thomas Jefferson 

                                   It is our nature to worship something ,and sometimes we worship things God has 

                                   made instead of Him  and often it is nature.

                           Many people plan financially for retirement but not spiritually or emotionally.

           The ordinary think inside the box,the extraordinary think outside the box, but genius 

            thinks inside,outside, below, and above the box.           Matshona Dhliwayo

                                       As sunlight is to the earth, so is Jesus to the human heart.

    Christmas is a very special time of year. Our hearts and thoughts always head to those we hold most dear.

                                                                            The small manger where Jesus laid his head 

                                                             Was the world's first King sized bed

                                                             Hope was born into this world  in a most unusual way

                                                             The wise men found Him asleep in the hay.

I'm just maverick  to say that I think fewer Christians ought to be going into the ministry and more should be going into business  and into occupations that have nothing to do with the vocational service. I don't see life divided into public and private, secular and sacred. It's all an open place of service before our God. My hope is to see ...a group of Christians who will infiltrate our society- in fact, our entire world-with a pure ,beautiful message of grace an honesty in the marketplace. Charles Swindoll

THAT PRECIOUS RED BLOOD OF JESUS

Read a wonderful devional this morning.  Sent it to a few friends. short version is a white flower showed her how dirty her place and even her face was and made her clean up her act.

The Bible does the same for us. It reminds us that we are all unclean and think I read somewhere the only thing that can do that for us is also red!

All of us have become like someone who is unclean, and our righteous are like filthy rags.                                                                              Isaiah 64:6
