Let's start by focusing upon God above all trials and tribulations.

While in the throes of illness, we sometime are so taken up in the moment of the issue that we cannot think of anything or anyone, emergencies, etc. As soon as the dust settles and we are released from the clutches of the one who chortles at our misfortunes, we can overcome him by being present to Christ Jesus, the One who saves us from our foe.

Praise the Lord, God Almighty from early morning to late at night. He is the source of our Joy and the devil cannot steal our joy if we don't let him.

Joyfully in the Lord,

Finding Joy

When we find joy in the Lord and know where we are headed that makes all the difference in the world. We can be happy with a bowl of soup as well as pheasant under glass. We can be happy wearing nondescript jeans as well as the finest linens. We can be happy accepting our own looks and limitations as well as when we cover up our blemishes, our fat, our this 'n that. I choose to be happy because God gave me that Grace. How's 'bout you? lol. JOYFULLY in the LORD, Mel

knowledge and attainment

Thank God that in the complex world in which we live there is the knowledge and attainment of the Lord's peace within our souls. May we all be disposed to the gift of the peace of the Lord.
How sad when one thinks he has done it all on his own. To forget where it all comes from places one on the slippery slope of pride.
