Remove Stress

1 Dec

From the Heart

The holidays can be stressful.
There is so much to do.
Be kind to yourself, dear friend.
This message is meant for you.

 

Do yourself a favor.
Smiling is good for you.
It slows down your heart beat and reduces
stress, and lowers your blood pressure, too.

 

A smile can delight your heart.
and is great at lighting a soul.
Lift someone’s spirit today.
Make smiling a top priority goal.

 

A smile is infectious-
It will always remove a frown.
Facial muscles will be raised up.
It’s the best “face lift” in town.

 

I put my theory to the test.
The woman in the mirror was frowning at me.
I gave her the brightest smile I could muster-
and she smiled right back at me!

Numbers 6:25
“The Lord make His face shine upon you.
and be gracious to you.”

Your smile could be a message of cheer
from God to a needy soul.

 

It’s in the Air!

Something stirred in my soul today,
an excitement deep within.
The “Little Kid” in me wants to express herself.
“It’s holiday time again!”

 

There is something so special in the air,
It reaches down deep within our soul.
To glorify Christ in all that we do
should be our ultimate goal.

 

Look up. Around, and deep within.
His presence is truly made known.
How comforting it is for us to know
God is always “on His throne”.

 

Our mission on earth is to glorify Christ.
Our actions speak volumes. that’s true-
Think carefully before you speak.
Let others see Christ in you.

 

Let Others See Jesus In You by Eliza E. Hewitt

The events in our life are meant to be.
God has a plan for our life.
Putting faith in that plan
will ward away the strife.

 

May you always remember God is in control.
Trust Him as He leads you each day.
We are weak. He is strong.
His way is truly the best way.

 

There is a peace that can be found,
knowing His plan is playing out in our life.
Putting our faith in that plan
will ward away the strife.

 

God truly wants the best for us.
Walking in His footsteps is His plan for man.
To be more like our Savior
is God’s ultimate plan.

Reach Out

Lord, thank you for friends.
They warm our heart and lift our spirit every day
Our thoughts are lifted to you, Lord
You are The Truth, The Light, The Way

 

The joy of creating, of touching another soul.
That is the reward of reaching out.
Lord, in You we are all made whole.

 

Knowing God has a plan for our life
is important, don’t you see-
Faith in God’s plan allows us to trust
that the events in our life are meant to be.

 

The joy of creativity,
of touching another’s soul
That is the reward of “reaching out”
The reward will make you whole.

 

Facts About Cats

20 Oct

From the Heart

CATS DO NOT COME!

Cats sleep an amazing amount of time-
close to three-quarters of the time,
counting, of course, the kind of nap
they have made famous.

 

I am a firm believer in the theory
that one of the ways in which
cats show happiness is by sleeping.
They don’t feel threatened,
so they can relax.

 

Cats do not “Come”.!
But they do respond to a treat!
Just rattle the bag
and they will come running to your feet.

 

Cat toys are not expensive-
a bottle cap will do.
A string or a ping pong ball
will keep them running to you.

 

Note- If I want to get this published,
I better stop being a snail.
I’ll give my cats a treat
and rush to put this in the mail!

God will prepare everything for our perfect
happiness in heaven, and if it takes my dogs
being there, I believe they will be there.

Billy Graham

 

Corky and Angel are my little feline friends,
A gift from my Lord above.
They are my constant companions.
They fill my heart with love.

 

Family and friends are a gift from above.
God knows how important it is to love.
To love and be loved is our basic need
On this one fact we are all agreed.

 

Thank you, dear Lord, for your tender care.
I see you in people I meet everywhere.
One fact I have come to accept as true.
“Lord, I owe my life, my dreams to you.

 

You have blessed me with three great children
that I love and wish the best for.
Lord, thank you for your promises.
You are the one we all adore.”

 

 

 

Somewhere

6 Oct

From the Heart

Louise GIbson

 

 

Somewhere there is a place for me.
A place I have a need to be.
A new plateau, a goal to meet.
Purpose, direction, without defeat.

 

Oh, God, give me strength to greet each day
with a cheerful countenance. Don’t let me sway.
Please let me focus on the issues of life
that bring joy to others to relieve their strife.

 

To have victory over the enemy called Fear-
the energy and stamina to persevere.

 

What Matters to You

15 Sep

From the Heart

Louise Gibson

Compassion and love are what matters
Reach out to a needy soul.
There is such a hunger for recognition
Make communication your goal.

 

People need people.
Listen with your heart to this plea.
“I don’t want to walk alone.”
There is such comfort in company.

 

Every day is a blessing
that comes from our Lord above.
Walk with a grateful spirit.
Do all things in the spirit of love.

 

I recognize that bad things happen,
Most of which we cannot comprehend.
But then, we are not made to understand it.
Try to be an optimist to the end.

 

When you accept the things you cannot change
You will dwell on things worthwhile.
Put on a happy face –
You are never fully dressed until you smile.

 

Food for Thought:
“When God pushes you to the edge, trust Him fully,
because only two things can happen.
Either He will catch you when you fall
or He will teach you how to fly.” Unknown

 

Pruning

Our life is so fleeting-
Where did the years go?
It seems like only yesterday
my heart was all aglow.

 

I looked forward to my future,
Optimism was foremost in my mind.
I never had been threatened.
I felt love for all mankind.

 

So naive in my thinking,
Ignorant of things above.
It took the pruning by the Master’s hand
that I might know true love.

 

We’ve all heard of pruning.
Gardening books recommend it, too.
Not to be hateful, but sometimes
simply the right thing to do.

 

Say, you’ve forgotten to prune your impatiens,
and now they’re simply towers-
No problem. Just take some clippers
and “lop off their heads”-
You’ll wind up with more flowers!

 

I have learned to walk by faith,not sight-
It is the Master Gardener that transforms
darkness into light.

Know God, Know Hope No God, No Hope

1 Sep

From the Heart

Louise Gibson

 

 

What a difference the spelling makes.
To know Him is to love Him and others.
To love Him is to serve him,
as we reach out to our brothers.

 

If you have yet to meet Him,
here is all you have to do.
Confess you are a sinner –
He’s waiting at the cross for you.

 

Hang on to hope, as on Jesus you wait.
“I will go before you and make
the crooked paths straight.” Isaiah 45

 

No God – No hope,
I can’t imagine such a scenario.
Why? My heart is too full of love,
since Jesus I came to know!

 

“Therefore, having been justified by faith,
we have peace with God through our
Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have
access by faith into this grace in which we stand,
and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”
Romans 5:1,2
