From the rising to the setting sun, His love endures forever.
By the grace of God we’ll carry on, His love endures forever.
Sing praise! Sing praise! Sing praise! Sing praise!
Forever God is faithful.
Forever God is strong.
Forever God is with us.
Forever and ever.
-Praise Worship Song, “Forever”- By Michael W. Smith
“It is not hard for the LORD to turn night into day. He who sends the clouds can just as easily clear the skies.” – Charles Spurgeon
“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:”
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and A time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and A time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and A time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.”
-Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 TLV
I am Thine, O Lord
I have heard Thy voice
And it told Thy love to me
But I long to rise
In the arms of faith
And be closer drawn to Thee
Consecrate me now
To Thy service Lord
By the power of grace divine.
Let my soul look up
with a steadfast hope
And my will be lost in Thine
Hymn- “I am Tine, O Lord” – by Fanny Crosby / W.H.Doane
“Lord help me to begin to begin”
– George Whitefield
“Humility can be summed up in just two words… “You first.””
– Faith Carr
“When My people, over whom My Name is called,
humble themselves and pray
and seek My face and turn from their evil ways,
then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin
and will heal their land.”
– 2 Chronicles 7:14
“Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God
and of Jesus Christ our Lord.”
-2 Peter 1:2
“I will lift up my eyes to the mountains — from where does my help come?”
“My help comes from ADONAI, Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip.
Your keeper will not slumber.
Behold, the Keeper of Israel
neither slumbers nor sleeps.
ADONAI is your keeper. ADONAI is your shadow at your right hand.
The sun will not strike you by day, nor the moon by night.
ADONAI will protect you from all evil.
He will guard your life.
ADONAI will watch over your coming and your going
From this time forth and forever more.”
Psalm 121 –Tree of Life Version
“The Lord is my strength and my shield;
My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped:
Therefore my heart greatly rejoices;
And with my song will I praise Him.”
“By perseverance the snail reached the ark.”

It’s so encouraging to see the little faces and gravatar images at the end of a post from fellow bloggers who “like” it. It really makes me feel good inside, and for those of you who have done so on any of my posts, I just wanted to send out a special thank you!
I love the verse in Proverbs 27:17 that says, “As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend,” That’s how it is in life, between those who are closely connected, through family, and friendship, and I’m thankful for the connection that I’ve found working and sharing along with those of you who either visit, “like”, or follow this blog.
As iron sharpens iron, I have been strengthened and encouraged through this blogging experience, and it is my hope that others will be strengthened and encouraged as they visit here as well.
God bless you today, and always.
