“In God is my safety and my glory.
“Only in God be at rest, my soul, for from him comes my hope.

“Trust in him at all times, O my people! Pour out your hearts before him; God is our refuge!”
Today I thank God for my parents’ heavenly wedding anniversary – they lived a dedicated union for me to follow.

“Faith appropriates everything. is evidence not seen. Faith starts knowing God’s Will which is found in the Word. To have faith you have to hear it, read the word out loud. When faith comes inside, it alivens us. What you believe in your heart, what you pray for, you will receive by your faith to pull the power of God in you.”
–Robin Bullock, Prophet
Lord Jesus, help me, help us, to always seek you as person. Our shepherd, king and giver of good gifts. Not like the scribes and Pharisees, not to babble in ritual prayers and schedules, but to remain connected to your sacred being with Abba Father and Holy Spirit. To live and breathe your resurrection power in us every day. Fill us with an overflow of faith for our families and the world at large, Amen.

Today, it is Sunday, thanks be to God. The first day of a new week, a day to rest from work and enjoy family together. For some this has become another workday with another day in the week to rest. Whatever the case may be, Sunday is a good day for humor and laughter, don’t you think?
“Laughter is like a windshield wiper, it doesn’t stop the rain but allows us to keep going.” –Bizwaremagic Quote
“What soap is to the body, laughter is to the soul.” Proverbs 94

“Living on earth may be expensive, but it includes a free trip around the sun annually.” —Anonymous
Abba Father, let us not take life so seriously that we fail to see humor all around us, Amen.
