What If...

Authored by robertcarley on Fri, Jan 11 2013 - 12:50 AM

What if today I chose not to look at the down side. What if I viewed every situation through possibility tinted glasses. What if I decided not to hold hurts, or bitterness, or anger, or fear, or shame. What if I chose to smile even when my angry face seems easier. What if I chose to give rather than receive , to celebrate rather than to regret. ...

      Here we are in a new year. And it IS a new year. Things will not be the same as last year, they will be new.

I think sometimes the years go by and we get older without giving much thought to the whole process. We celebrate ...

A New Year ... a new beginning ... a new opportunity!

Authored by jolanell on Tue, Jan 01 2013 - 10:51 AM

A new year...a new beginning...a new opportunity. I love new things. I remember when I was a child and my mother sewed new clothes for me.

That's the feeling I get with a ...

Over the past fee days I asked my beautiful tiny nephews and nieces what they had gotten for Christmas . their eyes lit up as they described the gift they had received that fitted exactly to the one they had dreamed of . gifts that mams and dads in consultation with the despatch centre in the north pole had lovingly made happen. They had searched ...

When They're Gone... There's More

Authored by robertcarley on Sat, Dec 15 2012 - 09:12 AM

  Christmas is often a time of paradox . It's a bright season of celebration in a season when all nature is resting from it's journey of life. It's a festival of lights in a time of darkness. It's full of warm cheery sentiments when it's cold and unwelcoming outside. But even in a more extreme sense often we find ourselves at odds with how ...

Last month I shared my “Testimony” on a Praise Blog post. I know it was a rather lengthy read but I certainly hope it was well worth the time invested into it. I no longer have a website of my own now, so I really wanted to share it in a way that would make it accessible for people to read in the future…   I certainly don& ...

So It's Thanksgiving...

Authored by robertcarley on Thu, Nov 22 2012 - 10:29 AM

So it's thanksgiving . Time when our US friends reflect on life on its richness on their family love and family ties. A time when everyone tries to get with loved ones in a national expression of love and gratitude. So today in a town in Uganda called Kumi I am thankful for my parents for my brothers and sisters for my nieces and nephews and my ...

Wow! Where do I begin. And this is kind of interesting, because I know most of the Praize members probably think that Jim and I have this perfect kind of life... Well, if you only knew.

A Time for New Beginnings...

Authored by praizeop2 on Sun, Nov 11 2012 - 04:36 PM

praizeop2's avatar

With the election over, I am thinking it is a time for new beginnings. It is time to get back to telling people about Jesus. But we really shouldn't "get back"...  we should start fresh. We need to "jump start" our future as Christians. Jesus could be coming back any day. Are you the very "best" Christian you can be? Am I?  I know the ...

The last few days have been a whirlwind of activity whether it be work or school or visitors in my home and I have loved it. We went through a time when I was home with a shoulder injury and due to the pain we were mainly just going to doctors. I have to say that time, exercise, and mainly prayers to God were the healer of my shoulder which it as ...

Could it possibly be Sarurday ? Has another week just slipped off the calendar without even as much as a goodbye or a thanks or at least an acknowledgement that I played my part in making it happen! Sometimes the pace of life itself is breathtaking . This day last week myself and my brothers and sisters spent the day preparing my house for a ...

God Touched Me Once Again

Authored by cybersaintkc on Thu, Sep 27 2012 - 06:43 PM

cybersaintkc's avatar

For so long I have prayed "Dear God I'm broke please fix me", I felt nothing happening in my life,and I questioned why?  More than likely it wasn't God that was the issue, it was me who had the issues, I just couldn't see them. Maybe I failed to notice that I had an issue with pride? Or maybe I wasn't allowing Christ to live in me and through ...

~The Child & The Shepherd~Once upon a time, into the Wildcat Hills of America, came a small child; woebegone, pale and wan. Yet her long, dark auburn hair glowed like a slow-burning ember. Her name was Andromeda. She grew up in, and roamed through, the sand hills of Nebraska. Abused, silent, alone and isolated, she learned how to cope with ...
