Life sure is good!  Emma gave this small pillow to us when we moved into our apartment in May 5, 2005. The girls frequently “refill” it with hugs and kisses.

This is all the more urgent, for you know how late it is; time is running out. Wake up, for our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed.
Romans 13:11 NLV
INSPIRATIONS God Gave You a Message to Share; Don’t Keep it to Yourself A personal thought: Whatever one’s chosen field of education/employment, by faith we believe in what our text books say about electron flow, strength of materials, complex math formulas and derivations, calculated trajectories to the planets, yet we have a difficult time putting faith in the Bible scriptures.  We ask God for things that we want; i.e. let live in spite of terminal illness, safety when odds are clearly against us, but God does not always grant those wishes.  By faith we need to accept God’s plan and continue to have faith in whatever else God hands us.  Through this continued faith we will find eternity.  How do we know this?  Because our “text book”, the Bible, says so.  Have faith. It took me 67 years; God is patient. See Hebrews 11.  PBC YOUR LAST DAY  (Thought provoking) What if you were told this morning that today was to be your last day on earth? How would you spend its fleeting hours? Whom would you insist on seeing? Would your behavior differ radically from what it usually is?  Someone has wisely said, "You should treat every day as if it's your last one, because one of these days you're going to be right."  There's no getting around it. Whether our earthly life ends by accident, illness, the ravages of age, or our Lord's return, one of these days will be our last. That's why we should guard so carefully the things we do and the words we say.  We ought to be tying up the loose ends of long-neglected matters by expressing our love and gratitude to others, by seeking reconciliation with an alienated friend, or by sharing the gospel with a neighbor.  Perhaps you've even been putting off accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior until some more convenient day. But that day may never come. Since your last day on earth can be so unexpected, heed Paul's inspired words: "Now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation" (2 Cor. 6:2).  Are you living each day as if it were your last?  — Vernon C. Grounds  ODB January 9, 1995  READ: 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11 Also read Romans 13:11. DO YOU LOVE YOUR PASTOR(S) ? SHARE THIS WITH THEM 1 Thessalonians 5  12 Dear brothers and sisters, honor those who are your leaders in the Lord’s work. They work hard among you and give you spiritual guidance.  13 Show them great respect and wholehearted love because of their work. And live peacefully with each other.

NEW HAMPSHIRE HOME LINKS MAINE FLORIDA INSPIRATIONS GALLERY INSPIRATIONS INSPIRATIONS In Florida, I used to meet weekly with a group of Christian men called the “Band of Brothers.”  All of them are busy providing for their families and some say that when they come home from work they frequently flop on the couch, turn on the TV, and surf aimlessly all evening.  They admittedly recognize the fault in this and they know that they should spend some time every day reading their Bible.  This fact spawned an idea (yes I get flashes of briliance once in a while) for a T-shirt saying:        Don’t turn on that TV...Have you read your Bible today? ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Helen and I regularly read the daily devotional “Our Daily Bread (ODB).”  Here is an excerpt from one dated August 4, 2009 that applies to us and our nation: ...”As a Christian community, we should first take an inventory of our own personal lives. As we humbly seek God in prayer and repentance of sin, changes begin in our lives. God may then use us to change a nation’s moral compass.”  — Dennis Fisher    “Nothing is politically right which is morally wrong.” —Lincoln  And here are some quotes from various ODBs:  Destroy gossip by ignoring it. ODB November 28, 2009  A broken relationship can be repaired - but only if you’re willing to try.  ODB November 23, 2009  The character of your children tomorrow depends on what you put into their hearts today. Nov 18  To avoid an embarrsassing fall, don’t jump to a wrong conclusion.  ODB September 28, 2009  Anonymity can be a cowards way of hiding behind hurtful words.  ODB September 16, 2009  The richest legacy a parent can leave a child is a good example.  ODB September 14, 2009  There are no degrees of honesty.  ODB September 11, 2009  Sharing the gospel is one person telling another good news. ODB August 24, 2009 (See Psalm 51:15)  Every time you speak, your mind is on parade.  ODB August 19, 2009  God’s love does not keep us from trials; it helps us get through them.  ODB August 12, 2009  What kind of role model will we be for someone watching today?  ODB July 26, 2009 Don’t turn on that TV...  Have you read your Bible today? Peter Cunningham 2009
