Beauty For Ashes

Authored by nomorechains on Wed, Feb 08 2012 - 04:10 PM

 I sit here tonight in awe of how God can take the darkest, bleakest, most painful events in our lives and turn them into songs of praise.  I marvel that out of immense grief and sorrow, God can stitch the broken pieces of our heart and fashion a garment of praise.  Only God can take the tattered remnants of dispair ...

Test

Authored by robertcarley on Wed, Feb 08 2012 - 05:40 AM

Bob, I have tested everything on this end and all seems to be working properly. The only thing I can see is that perhaps you are not getting your content copied in properly. I write in OpenOffice and then copy and paste. I am doing that here. There are three "paste" icons for you to choose from on the second row under Content. Or you can use ...

  This week was a first...  for the first time in almost two years, I had NO communication with our hosting company! This may not appear as a big deal to you, but to me it was a major milestone.  A turning point, if you will... an indicator that Praize is working properly and the way that we want it.  I can't remind you ...

The other night my husband came out of his office with tears rolling down his cheeks.  He had just watched one of Mark Lowry's comedy videos on Praize and was laughing so hard he was crying! Go to Catagories / Comedy Videos and let all your cares roll off your shoulders  for a while. Especially if you are feeling bad, for Proverbs 17 ...

What do you do when a situration gets tottally turned around and that is not what it was at all when it started? You start a conversation, or join one, and the topic is so far out there, than it was at the begining. It happens every day here, at times it exploads. It is so hard to keep with the common topic. I feel when a conversation is done ...

And The Healing Goes On and On

Authored by nomorechains on Fri, Dec 30 2011 - 12:57 AM

It was a half hour before my shift ended when my phone rang.  The voice on the other end informed me that I was called to a local hospital to assist a rape victim.  I froze in the middle of my living room, gained control of my fear and then moved quickly to gather up my comfort kit, manual and supplies. It was my first call as a ...

2012: Life Behind The Veil

Authored by nomorechains on Thu, Dec 29 2011 - 06:04 AM

2012: Life Behind The Veil  And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split.  Matthew 27: 50-51 (NIV)  But their minds were made dull, for to this day the same veil remains when the old ...

The Aroma That Captures

A certain fragrance that carries our minds And captures our attention Fills us with warmth and joy Do you remember a time When that scent flooded your memory What did you recall?   A mother's perfume or the essence of a moment Your first rose or a scented note A place you visited all the sights and smells   I wonder what ...

I just want to thank You.

Authored by jolanell on Mon, Dec 12 2011 - 12:40 AM

It's easy in the hurley-burley, busy, demanding, problem-filled day to forget that I am to give thanks "in" everything (I Thessalonians 5:18 KJV) and "for" all things (Ephesians 5:20 KJV). What a difference giving thanks makes! How can I be upset or angry or bitter when I am giving thanks? It's impossible!  16Rejoice evermore. 17Pray ...

Clear vision

Authored by jolanell on Mon, Nov 28 2011 - 10:23 AM

I woke up late this morning. The day is shrouded in fog. I was fooled into thinking it was still early. But when I couldn't go back to sleep, I checked my watch and was astounded at the time. Foggy mornings make for good sleeping! I'm glad I don't have to drive anywhere soon, and I'm hoping the fog has cleared before I do have to drive. Driving ...

Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction.  2 Timonthy 4:2 (NIV) Since the first of October, I have been in training to be a Volunteer Victim's Advocate.  I have attended training seminars, read my manual front and back several times, and ...

What am I worth??

From time to time I go through an inventory session with the Lord because I have been out of the public for some time now. There is something about the pastoral chair that gives a feeling of accomplishment that seems lost in the other things I have been involved in. I could write a volume on my hearts desire and where I want to go. Feeling ...

Fishing

Authored by jolanell on Mon, Nov 21 2011 - 09:57 AM

It's been a while since I've been fishing, although I always enjoyed that activity. I remember learning to fish as a child with a cane pole and a worm. Those times of fishing were lessons in patience. I remember Friday evenings when I was a little girl. Friends would come to visit with my parents. The talk would turn to fishing and the next thing ...

Appreciation messages

Authored by jolanell on Sat, Nov 19 2011 - 11:06 AM

 Periodically on a social networking site, people post messages about different people in their lives. Normally, I don't repost; but this week I did. The "I Care" message follows: "Nurses are being scorned for being late with medicines by one minute sometimes, yet they are holding their bladder because they don't have time to use the ...
