Love and Kindness

This beautiful house is just down the street from where our precious daughter Kara  and her groom, Phil, live!  Can you imagine just walking down the street each day and passing this beautiful place on the River Wensum in Norwich?   It was in the heart of someone to build this home in the 1700's and even today, 200 years later,  people pass by and are in awe of the beautiful surroundings.  It is named after John Pull, who operated a ferry and Inn there from1796-1841. 

What is in your heart today?  I hope some love and kindness creating lasting moments of influence for someone your life will touch.  Since it is Sunday, truly our thoughts turn to the Lord of Glory!  It doesn't really matter what is behind us or before us, because the encouraging words found in Ecclesiastes 3:11 in the Bible assure us, "He has made everything beautiful in its time."  Those words include every circumstance and every situation you are praying about!  Each one!

Each day, we are given twenty-four hours of time and depending upon our age and individual circumstances, determinations are made on how we will use those twenty-four hours.  There are responsibilities we have and must complete and often there are limitations we must accept if we have others who require our attention throughout the day.  Some things we cannot control, but thankfully, we are given the control  over our thoughts and influences throughout the day.  We can determine to seek to please God in all we do, say, and believe and truly, each day can be like a Sunday when our thoughts are focused on HIM!  This can start each morning with PRAISE!  Just by speaking the words, "I praise you, Lord of Heaven and earth!"  When our thoughts are focused on the Lord of Glory and the realization that He is the Light of Glory, it's going to be a good day!  In Luke 18:27 Jesus spoke the words....."The things which are impossible with men are possible with God."  Psalm 63:3 says, "Because your lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise You."  Go ahead, try it and see, even lift your hands and see.....He will pour out His blessings on your day!  Look expectantly for gracious and goodness in your day and trust Him at His Word that "He will make everything beautiful in its time."  EVERYTHING!  Such an awesome promise to you and me!
