Even though we live in a motor home on the road, our home state is Louisiana. In my other blog “Dora and the Explorers” I wrote about the flooding there. I found some appropriate graphics about Louisiana that I will share here. Please be in prayer for the thousands in Louisiana without a home and struggling to go through the massive mountains of rubble and trash that was their homes and lives.

QUOTES FROM CORRIE TEN BOON

“There is no pit so deep, that God’s love is not deeper still.”

“If God sends us on stony paths, he provides strong shoes.”

“Worry is like a rocking chair: it keeps you moving but doesn’t get you anywhere.”

“Faith sees the invisible, believes the unbelievable, and receives the impossible.”

Today I painted a new residents nails at work and as we were going over colors, she mentioned she wanted clear. The only thought that came to my mind was “CLEAR?! That’s no fun.” I asked her why she wanted clear and she said, “My hands are ugly, I don’t want to draw attention to them.” I then carefully responded with, “Your hands tell the story of your life. They tell the story of love, of care and adventure. These hands have touched and held things that most people can only wish to one day.” And with that, she went with the color pink for her nails.

Sometimes what we are so insecure with, others find beauty in.

OLD SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO

Though technically part of the Puerto Rican capital, the island of Old San Juan is it’s own small town. European-style cobblestone streets add to the charm of this spot, which feels like stepping right into a 16th-century Spanish colony. The best part? You don’t need a passport to get there.

The following statements actually appeared in church bulletins or were announced in church services:

  • Bertha Belch, a missionary from Africa, will be speaking tonight at Calvary Methodist. Come hear Bertha Belch all the way from Africa.

  • PRAYER & FASTING Conference: “The cost for attending the Fasting and Prayer Conference includes meals.”

  • The sermon this morning: “Jesus Walks on the Water.” The sermon tonight: Searching for Jesus.”

  • Our youth basketball team is back in action on Wednesday at 8:00 p.m. in the recreation hall. Come out and watch us kill Christ the King.

  • Ladies, don’t forget the rummage sale. It’s a chance to get rid of those things not worth keeping around the house. Don’t forget your husbands.

  • The peacemaking meeting scheduled for today has been canceled due to a conflict.

  • Smile at someone who is hard to love. Say “Hell” to someone who doesn’t care much about you.

  • Don’t let worry kill you off — let the Church help.

  • Miss Charlene Mason sang “I will not pass this way again,” giving obvious pleasure to the congregation.

  • For those of you who have children and don’t know it, we have a nursery downstairs.

 EVERYONE HAS A STORY IN LIFE

A 24 year old boy seeing out from the train’s window shouted…

“Dad, look the trees are going behind!”

Dad smiled and a young couple sitting nearby, looked at the 24 year old’s childish behavior with pity, suddenly he again exclaimed…

“Dad, look the clouds are running with us!”

The couple couldn’t resist and said to the old man…

“Why don’t you take your son to a good doctor?”The old man smiled and said…“I did and we are just coming from the hospital, my son was blind from birth, he just got his eyes today.

Every single person on the planet has a story. Don’t judge people before you truly know them. The truth might surprise you.

08.17.16 Wacky Wonderful Wednesdays

Before you scroll down through today’s Wacky Wonderful Wednesday, I want to ask for prayers for Louisiana. The flooding is historic but I am happy to say our little house in Amite, Louisiana is high and dry. So very many of our friends and church family have lost their homes. The water depth went from a few inches in some homes to some topping the roof. The local rivers flowed rapidly into and through homes giving no notice to the residents. Our home church, Trinity Baptist, was also flooded and folks are already starting the gutting out process. While it hurts to see people’s homes ruined, our communities are family (whether through blood or not) and everyone is helping one another in whatever way they can. Local churches are the ones who typically help the most and during this flood I know of 12 Southern Baptist church buildings that have to be rebuilt. Many other denominations lost their church buildings as well.

We serve a mighty God and I know that He will turn this disaster into a blessing that will Glorify His Name.

LIPSTICK IN SCHOOL

According to a news report, a certain private school in Washington recently was faced with a unique problem. A number of 12 year old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom. That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick they would press their lipst to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints. Every night the maintenance man would remove them and the next day the girls would put them back.

Finally the principal decided that something had to be done. She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance man. She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night. To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, she asked the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required.

He took out a long handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet and cleaned the mirror with it. Sicne then there have been no lip printis on the mirror!

There are TEACHERS and there are EDUCATORS!

IT MAKES YOU THINK…..WHAT IF?

Millions of people around the world believe in a greater, powerful being. For the individuals that don’t share that belief, then, unfortunately, today’s poem is not for you…or is it? There are many things that we don’t know about God but we do believe that He takes care and loves us unconditionally. The following poem is meant to give you something to think about and well as be thankful for the blessings that have.


What if, GOD couldn’t take the time to bless us today because
we couldn’t take the time to thank Him yesterday?

What if, GOD decided to stop leading us tomorrow because
we didn’t follow Him today?

What if, we never saw another flower bloom because
we grumbled when GOD sent the rain.

What if, GOD didn’t walk with us today because
we failed to recognize it as His day?

What if, GOD took away the Bible tomorrow because
we would not read it today?

What if, GOD took away His message because
we failed to listen to the messenger?

What if, GOD didn’t send His only begotten Son because
He wanted us to be prepared to pay the price for sin.

What if, the door of the church was closed because
we did not open the door of our heart?

What if, GOD stopped loving and caring for us because
we failed to love and care for others?

What if, GOD would not hear us today because
we would not listen to Him yesterday?

What if, GOD answered our prayers
the way we answer His call to service?

What if, GOD met our needs
the way we give Him our lives???


It makes you think doesn’t it?

All that matters, Lord, is that it is well with my soul.
It may not be well with our bodies, the sink, the laundry, the work, the wallet, the week ahead, or the world, but it is well with our soul
because Your grace touch is salve enough for our wounds,
Your certain hope is water enough for our parched places,
Your unfailing arms are more than welcome enough for our rest, so it is well with my soul
and that is why all is well — why even now, even we are well.
