Our Father

Our Father, which art in heaven,hallowed be thy name;

Thy kingdom come;thy will be done;on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.And forgive us our trespasses,

As we forgive those who trespass against us.

Lead us not into temptation;

But deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.

Amen.

One Sunday Morning

One Sunday morning, when I was about 3 and 1/2 years old, my mother and father woke  to find me missing from my bed! Panicked and terrified, they went looking for me everywhere, and found that I had gone to Sunday School, with some older girls, who lived nearby.  The girls had apparently asked permission from my parents the night before, and the next morning, being the early riser that I am, I woke up, got dressed, and when the girls came to the door, I left with them. My parents, being completely unaware and, still fast asleep!!

Frightening, I’m sure, for any parent, and not funny at first, but for me, this was my first  “itty bitty”  testimony, of  how, as a child,  I loved  Jesus, and the stories of the Bible.  Later, at the age of 10, I went to the altar to ask Jesus into my heart.

Now, after all these years, and throughout my life, I can truly say that He has loved me, blessed me and kept me , and it’s by His grace,that I’m here today, early on another Sunday morning, thankful for His unfailing love, gentle kindness and forever faithfulness.

Smiles and Blessings to you!
