Top of the Page!

This week really got away from me. I don’t know if it was the holiday or the heat or the rain or a combination of all three! LOL  Anyway, there is no condemnation in Christ Jesus or, in the vernacular, it’s all good! In the last several blogs I have discussed the Praize home page, and I hope all you new members will go to my blog ...

My Carriers

Authored by robertcarley on Thu, Jul 12 2012 - 06:54 AM

You know when you dream, now I don't mean the in bed asleep dream or the some day in the future dream. Well maybe this only happens to men but the "hail the hero" dream the "you saved the day" dream the "if it wasnt for you" dream. The ones where the crowd parts and everyone's head turns to you someone points and then before you know where you are ...

A Piece of Uganda

Authored by robertcarley on Tue, Jul 10 2012 - 01:19 PM

Sometimes when I sit down here to say whats on my mind I head off in a completely different direction than I had intended. So today its a completely wet dull and autumnal day. Yesterday was like a traditional hot buy me an ice cream kind of summer day. So what a contrast. When it gets warm I love the smell of the rain drying out on the grass. Its ...

Praize has seen so many new members lately, that I want to encourage you all to read my past blogs… at least starting with “The  Bottom of the Page”. By doing so, you will get a good idea of what Praize is all about. None of my blogs are long, so it will  only take you a few minutes. Today we are up to the middle of ...

  It's funny how life takes twists and turns that we just dont see coming. Just when it seems to be the way we dreamed it picks a side road that leads us through suburbs and neighbourhoods of sadness and hurt despair and loneliness poverty and Ill health loss and confusion in fact it's a route that we would never knowingly choose. ...

Up From The Bottom of The Page

Authored by praizeop2 on Tue, Jun 19 2012 - 09:41 AM

praizeop2's avatar

The past two weeks I have shared about the bottom of the Praize home page. It is VERY important, and I wanted to make sure it wasn't overlooked.   Up one step from the bottom of the home page, above the Categories, is a Google ad. Now that Google ad may seem trivial to you, but it is important to us.  If you don't feel that you ...

A Son's Memory

Authored by robertcarley on Sun, Jun 17 2012 - 08:41 AM

Options Bob Carley   I've shared this thought before at many seminars and conferences and in church but for the day that's in it I thought I'd put it here as a salve to someone's hurting heart. I was blessed to be raised by amazing parents. Both seemed to find a happy rhythm and natural responsibilities and I never heard them mention ...

A Father's Thoughts

Authored by bobcarley on Sun, Jun 17 2012 - 07:51 AM

Well it's 7am and I've been lieing awake forvan hour thinking! Now early morning thinking can be very scary because it seems to go at a breakneck speed. Probably because the highways of thought have not yet been filled with the traffic of duty and the commuters from the memory suburbs. It's a clear run no accidents of hurt or offence no regret ...

Since we have so many new Praize members signing up daily, I thought I would run over a few things: 1) Your content counts. Really, the only reason for you to have a membership on Praize is so that you can participate. And every time you post a blog or comment on a teaching, it helps our ratings. Of course financial donations count as well as ...

Don't Waste It!

Authored by robertcarley on Tue, May 29 2012 - 08:02 AM

What amazing weather gloriously delicious days. Made for ice cream days . Days of factor 0 to fifty in ten applications days. Days of kids laughter days of floppy dogs tongues days of hot foot paths pizza oven car interiors and do you still have that t shirt days. Days of scents of cut grass lemon drinks and this is like the old summer days . Jean ...

  Sometimes we can overlook the simplest things. Last week’s Spotlight was to remind Praize members to update their personal email address.  Okay, simple enough, right?  Then I got this precious comment: “How do I do that?”  I’m sorry, I just had to chuckle… of course I should have given ...

  Ok so I'm driving along the coast not far from here and I pass a public park which seems to be the get to place for every duck in Dublin (that almost sounds like obscenities) so there is as they say a bit of a stir on. Some human has produced bread. Ah bread the natural food of ducks sure they've been baking it since time began! In any ...

There are four of them.  They are neatly folded and sitting on the corner of my dresser and to the right of my computer.  The prayer shawls are different colors yet, they all share one thing in common: they are flawed. Deemed unworthy as gifts, the creator (myself) has left them sitting to gather dust.  Because they do ...

So it's three in the morning it's very still outside and I'm lying awake in bed. Around this time last year my self and Jean were in Tuscany with our friends Gerry and Louise. It was a delightful villa quite literally in the middle of nowhere and impossible to find! Jean and I were celebrating our 26th wedding anniversary and nearly didn't ...

Happy Mothers Day?

Authored by praizeop2 on Mon, May 14 2012 - 11:12 AM

I pray a lot for mothers at this time of year. I see most of my friends on Facebook with happy families. And I am happy for them. But my heart hurts for the others who are not so blessed.  The ones you see on TV whose children are in trouble, being arrested, or worse. And the ones you don’t see on TV. Those whose children have gone on ...

Comforter   I remember a time in my life where I was either afraid or sad, I remember a time I was up at 1 am praying to my lovingly heavenly Father asking him to not to take my loved ones away.  Sometimes he spared their lives and sometimes he decided that he was ready for them and both times I felt his comfort through it all! ...

The other day I received an email from a woman who wanted to know why she couldn't get Praize on her I-Pad. I replied that we are not yet mobile. I should have told her that we WANT to be.  We just don't have the funds. (I would LOVE to have an I-Pad AND to have Praize on it!) Since we dropped email at the end of March, I have heard from ...

One night, I was thinking about a situation I was in multiple times and I was so offended by those who have hurt me. I was in my room and I kept thinking about what people said and did to me and this particular night I was by myself no music no sound was around no one! It was just me and the Lord and I talked to the Lord about all this and was ...
