I'm not sure this is a front porch - but rather a patio --

just the same, a wonderful place

to reflect and that glass of tea looks inviting .... ahhh

Life's lessons are many -- and they accompany the lows as well

as the highs. Be grateful for both.

Choose to live in the present. Gentle reminders are often necessary, however.

Go ahead - step into your life, today. Make it a daily habit, one

you will never want to break.

I sometimes wonder just why a door seemed to have closed? It is true that our paths

are confounded only when your steps have gone astray. Doors do not close unless

a new direction is called for. Learn to trust that no obstacle is without

its purpose, however baffling it may seem.

We do fear the unknown at times. It causes us anxiety and catches up with us on

occasion. But it needn't. Have faith, practice it daily, as faith diminishes all fear.

It is said that fear cannot exist where there is faith.

They say - when you touch someone else,

God touches you in return.

A Coffee Filter

Tip For Today

Use them on the bottom of a flower pot when planting or repotting.

New soil will not fall thru holes on bottom of pot,

but will still allow for water drainage.

Jesus replied, "I am the bread of life.

Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again.

Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty."

John 6:35

I am not a country music fan so to speak, but I think you'll agree that Alan Jackson's

rendition of this hymn is beautiful as is the slide show strongly reminding us of the reason

this country became the greatest nation in the history of mankind. Thank you

to classmate Janet for sharing this with me.

Listen and read.
