When I was a child ,I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child:but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 1 Corinthians 13:11. As a child I believed everything my father told me! As far as I know he never ever lied to me.He only wanted what was best for me. He taught me to love and to have faith in God! The first healing I ever remember receiving was when Dad prayed for me. I was about 7 years old qne I had what we called a jumping toothache. The rest of the family were having supper and I was laying upstairs in bed crying my heart out! Suddenly my Dad walked into my room, laid his hand on my head and prayed a simple prayer, asking Jesus to please make my tooth stop hurting! Well my heavenly father walked into my room at the same time, heard my daddy pray aand reached out to me and instantly my toothache stopped and Dad took me down stairs and we both enjoyed our supper with the rest of the family!  He is still the same God!I remember one night many years after this that Dad was ill so my hubby and family would spend our evenings with him and mom as they were now by themselves. As we sat talking Dad suddenly had a stroke which was quite severe. He couldn’t talk or move, I ran to the phone and called our Pastor who came right away. He laid hands on Dad and began to pray along with the rest of us in the Name of Jesus.  Once again Jesus walked into the room and Dad was instantly healed.  I can still see him in my mind as he got up out of his chair and went to the sink and got himself a glass of water and began talking again! Dad has been gone now for about 24 years but my heavenly father is still alive!  There are some times when I don’t feel very well but when I call upon His name He gives the strength I need to carry on! He still lives and He is still God!He’s my Lord and my God, he’s not just a stranger to me. When I looked past the veil, it was easy to see. He’s my Lord and my God!  I’m gonna lift up the Name of Jesus, I’m gonna sing of my joy since He came. I’m gonna tell of His power every day and every hour. I’m gonna lift up His wonderful Name!

I wonder how many of us are just so tired and weary of all this cold, wet weather and are just longing for some nice, warm summer days so we can enjoy going for a nice long walk, taking a ride through the countryside or just sitting out on the deck and enjoying the sun!  I know of some people who were so tired of the snow and cold weather that they have already taken a trip to a warmer clime and came back all refreshed and ready to start all over again!

I always feel so sorry for those poor people who live on the streets, sleeping under bridges or on park benches, some even behind old buildings and in old boxes!  That is when I long for money to give away, which is something I never expect to have! I remember  one train trip we took to Montreal, very early in the morning we stopped at a station and there at the end of the building sat a little old grey headed woman with a brown bag in her hand. She looked to me like a homeless, ill person and my heart really went out to her!Perhaps you may know of someone who is ill and they are longing for a miracle!  I would love to be able to help someone like that! Or somebody may have lost a family member due to illness and their was no help available to them, oh, how we long to help them!  Some may have lost their home and even their family due to financial struggles or some other situation beyond their control and how we long to help out but so many times are unable to do this!  Then there are those who are so hungry and longing for a good meal but just can’t afford to buy  it! Every once  in a while I get a longing for some of my hubby’s  homemade  icecream.                                                                                                                                 It is so good and yummy! I haven’t yet had to scream for it, like the old cli’che  I scream,you scream, she screams, he screams,they scream, we all scream for icecream!  Sometimes I get a longing for chocolate and once again my good hubby will come to my aid with a chocolate bar or maybe even make some fudge! 

You may feel so insecure and would like to feel more secure with maybe a wife or husband who would be faithful to you  but maybe you are unsure of yourself. Perhaps you had a bad experience and don’t feel like taking chances again.  I can give you some really solid advice! If you would pray about your situation, regardless of what it is, if you are sincere and ask God for His help He will come to your aid. He knows all things, the end from the beginning, and He longs to help you! You may think I’m crazy but He did it for me!Don’t give up or get discouraged, just be consistent and hang on to his promises. 1 Peter  5:7 says “Casting all your cares on Him for He careth for you!”My greatest longing is to be ready for that great day when this old body will put on immortality and I shall see Jesus face to face. Then we shall be like Him for we shall see Him as He is! I’ve a longing in my heart for Jesus.I’ve a longing in my heart to see His face. And I’m weary ,oh so weary, while travelling here below. I’ve a longing in my heart for Him! I’m longing for Jesus to come back, I long for Jesus Christ my King. To come and take me o my home beyond the sky. Up there where angels shout and sing! Just any day now my Lord is coming. He’ll be returning for you and me. I’ll be watching and I’ll be waiting, Just any day now His face I’ll see!

I ended my last story by saying I am going right into the glories of heaven! Now I would like to talk a bit about the glories of heaven and how we will get there!

Matt 24:13 tells us they that shall endure unto the end shall be saved! He didn’t say it would be an easy road but he did say he would never leave us and would give us the strength we need! Matt 24:35 – Heaven and earth shall pass away  but my word shall never pass away! I am so glad His word is true and He never changes! I can always trust Him and lean upon His word!  This old world is always changing and we can’t really rely upon our leaders as they are only human and humans do make mistakes, however there is a higher power we can fully trust in! His Name is Jesus!

Matt 24:27 For as the lightening cometh out of the west and shineth unto the east, so shall also the coming of the sun of man be!  He is coming as a thief in the night and it would pay us to forget our pride and be ready to meet him!  Matt 25:44 – Therefore be ye also ready! John 14:2 – In my father’s house are many mansions! If it were not so I would have told you! I go to prepare a place for you, …and will come again and receive you unto myself  that where I am, there ye may be also! What a wonderful promise! Verse 6 Jesus said-I am the way, the truth and the light.Verse 6-no man cometh unto the Father but by me.Verse 7-he that hath known me hath known my father also. verse 9 He that hath seen me hath seen the Father! I can hardly wait for that day when I see the one who took my place on Calvary. I should have  been crucified, I should have suffered and died but He went  willingly to Calvary in my stead!  What a friend! There is no one else like Him!

Let’s go back to that City He is taking us to! Revelations 21 tells us about it. The gate of the city is going to be a huge pearl. The streets of transparent gold! There was no need for a temple for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. The city had no need for the sun or moon to shine in it for the glory of God did lighten it and the Lamb is the light thereof! There is a pure river of crystal proceeding out of the throne of God, and the gates shall not be shut at all by day. Chapter 22- In the midst of the street and on either side of the river is the tree of life,which bare twelve manner of fruit and yielded her fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. They shall see His face and His name shall be in their foreheads, and there shall be no night there;and they need no candle neither light of the sun, for the Lord GOD giveth them light; and they shall reign forever and ever!

Oh, How I want to go there! The best part of it is – We can all go there.  He said ”whosoever will may come”  He gave us the instructions  and made the way possible. All we have to do is obey Acts 2:38 and if we do our part He will do His and fill us with His Spirit  It is that same spirit that dwells in Him that will take us up in the rapture of the church!  It is so exciting!

Jesus is the waymaker, Jesus is the waymaker. One day He made a way Oh, Glory.  When I was lost in sin,  He came and took me in. One day, He made a way for me!

I suppose most people remember when  they were expecting their child what will it be like? Who will it look like? Will it have dark hair or blonde or will it have any hair at all? Will it be small or huge? All these questions went through my mind.  My sister, Joyce, always told me that my children would have a turned-up nose as she said that both Roy and I have turned-up noses.  I don’t think she is right  but I still wondered if perhaps she just may be right!   Anyhow my first child was a little girl, weighing in at 7lb. 8 oz. She was a lovely child and no she didn’t have a turned-up nose! She had a whole head of dark hair and she was Oh, so cute! My second child was a little white headed boy, he weighed in at 8 lb.7oz. Sis. DeWolfe said he should have been a girl, he is too pretty for a boy!  My third child, another boy weighed in at l0 lb. 2 oz. and 22  1/2 in long. He had darker skin and  had the most beautiful large brown eyes the nurses fell in love with him.   There were no turned-up noses and no two looked alike!

When Roy decided to build a home I wondered if he would build a small house or a large one and what it would be like. I thought I’ll try to talk him into building a large house. I was tired of a small one with 3 children.But I didn’t have to, he built a large house anyhow, Thank you, Jesus!  I always wanted a big house and I still love my home, even though it may not be fancy, and I am not the housekeeper I should be, it is still my home!

When we purchased our first new car, it was a white toyota. I wondered what it would be like. However, we both loved it and wore it completely out!

I have often wondered about Outer space.  I would imagine the first man to go into outer space would have been so excited!  He probably wondered what would happen and what it would be like a way up there!  Yuri Gagarin was the first human being to journey into outer space on April 12, 1961. Thomas Stafford said “without Gagarin first going into he probably wouldn’t have gone to the moon when Apollo 10 mission approached within 8 miles of the moon in 1969.  Russia’s Alexi Lenovo was the first man to walk in space, but died later in a plane crash. The Russian Commander said the human dream of flying  to the stars came true with Yuri Gagarin’s flight in l961,  I can just imagine how excited they must have been!

I get so excited when I think of going to outer space! Wow! I’m going far beyond the stars, sun and moon!  Right into the glories of heaven!  How glorious and wonderful that will  be!

I’m going to take a trip in that good old gospel ship!  I’m going far beyond the sky. I’m gonna shout and sing until the heavens ring. when I’m bidding this old world goodbye!

I’m gonna get ready, I’m gonna get ready! Ready for that Judgment day to be!  When I hear the trumpet blast, I’ll be on my way at last. Just open up those pearly gates for me!

  Have you  ever gone shopping and paid an extremely high price for something You really wanted?  When you got home perhaps  hubby was a tad upset to think you would spend so much money on something he didn’t want or even like!  You stood your ground and said“Listen dear, I know it is expensive but it really is worth it, at least to me! If your hubby is like mine, he would probably say “ I bet you will never even use it!

Maybe it was your anniversary and your husband decided to take you out for supper! This is an exciting time as he wants to take you to the very best Restaurant!   So you go in and place your order only to find that when they serve it, it is no larger than a kid’s happy meal! You probably looked at it and said “Oh my, how disappointing, that is not worth what we paid for it. I’ll never come back here again,This is 2 trips, first and last!”  We did that once and we have never gone back again,

We once bought a car that we were very disappointed with as it would only work on a cold day! On a hot day it just would not go.By the time we got rid of it the cost was terrific. It cost far more than it was worth! We both agreed on that one.

Now I don’t think I’m a cheapskate as I don’t want to take anyone in but at the same time I don;t want to pay an arm and a leg for something either especially if it isn’t any good! In other words I do want my monies worth!  Most of the time I am well satisfied with everything and I really don’t think I am all that hard to please. My husband may think differently but he says that most of the time I’m not hard to please so I guess I have to believe him!

We are not all alike, you may like something that I would dislike and vice versa. I only know one thing that I really love and I know I can recommend this to everyone  knowing that if they would just try it they too would just love it and wouldn’t be able to find one thing they could complain about or find fault with! It is called everlasting life and we can find it in Christ Jesus our Lord and Saviour! He is so wonderful and makes our bad days into good days!  I just wish everyone would try Him as I can’t see anyone wanting to go back into the old sinful world once they have had a taste of salvation! When life is ended and over here on earth you will be able to say “ Surely it was worth it all!”

It’s gonna be worth it all some beautiful happy day. It’s gonna be worth every long mile. every heartache and every trial.  It’s gonna be worth it all, some beautiful happy day!

It will be worth it all, when we see Jesus.   Lifes trials will seem so small when we see Him.  One glimpse of His dear face, all sorrows will erase , so let us run the race ‘til we see Christ!

IT’S REAL!

                                                        
Roy and I went to Fredericton this afternoon,  I went into a store  and thought  I would purchase a birthday gift  for my sister, my eye caught sight of the perfect gift first thing, it was a very pretty vase. Upon closer inspection of it  I wondered what could that be used for as it was made of folded paper. It was very colourful and pretty but when I looked  at the price it was too steep for me so I just  turned and walked away from it!  It seems that most things today are made of synthetic materials and if you want the real thing it would cost an arm and a leg!
The same is true with medications, most everything is generic. Since I am allergic to so many drugs my doctor advised against taking generic medications, For awhile this was just fine until one day they told me that this one drug was a bit different  as they couldn’t get the same one I needed,  It wasn’t long until most every one of my drugs were changed into generic.                                                                                                                                     
Just like the pretty vase I wanted so bad, Satan always paints a pretty picture! He makes everything look good and makes many believe that alcohol, drugs, cigarettes, etc. are good for you! So many get caught in his trap until they are so addicted to these things that by the time they decide they are addicted and want  to get free of it , it is too late!   
By this time they are so discouraged and sometimes have lost everything they own  including family, friends, and even their home, health and self respect. Some even take their own life because they are so discouraged! Satan tells them they are now in his snare and there is no way out.   Well, Satan is a liar and the father of liars!                                                                             
I  am happy to tell you there is a way you can be free from these addictions!  If you are truly sincere and want to  get your life cleaned up  just call upon the name of Jesus Christ and  tell him you are sorry for your sins (we were all born in sin and shaped in iniquity) and ask Him to come into your heart  to stay.  Then obey Acts 2:38 and He will give you everlasting life!  Jesus loves you so much that He went to Calvary just for you! He arose again and ascended on high and promised to come again and take us to reign with Him forever, that where He is, there we may be also! How can anyone refuse such an offer?
Jesus Christ is real and this experience is real!  You may ask how I know this is real,
it is because I have experienced this myself and I know it is real!  He will instantly change your life! Praise His name!
It’s real, It’s real!
  It`s that Pentecostal blessing and I know , I know it’s real!
Just before the waves of slumber had rocked my soul to sleep.  Just before the angry billows had pulled me out too deep.  God only knows how long I drifted before I. saw the old lifeline. I`m so glad He found me, just in time!

I love anything that is sweet,from candy to my husband! hubby has been boiling sap to make maple syrup. On Saturday,past, he was boiling down 50 gallon of sap outside in a big boiler. He spent most of the day out side so he could watch it and keep the fire going. He came in  for supper after which he went to Prayer meeting at the church,saying as he left that syrup should be Ok until he got home.  Our son, Scott arrived at the same time he did and went on out to the boiler as he said he smelled it when he got out of the car.  Yes,you probably guessed right ,it boiled too much,so he moved it from the large boiler to a smaller pot and brought it in the house and started to beat it with the beaters to make it into fudge!  He poured it into a 2×3 tray  and although it has a very slight burned taste it is still very yummy!

Now my sister has a grandson who just turned a year old and to me he is about the sweetest child ever! When he looks at you and gives you one of his big smiles it makes the heart just melt! I just love him!

A newborn baby is always so sweet no matter how homily or how cute they are! I  guess it is the new life that everyone loves so much!

When a baby is born we try to get a suitable name for it. We often say “what a sweet name he has!”  Although we can’t say that about everyone I do know one who has the most beautiful name ever! His father gave Him His name before He was born. An Angel appeared to His mother in St.Luke chapter 2:31 ‘And behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb. and bring forth a son , and shalt call His name JESUS!” verse 35 He shall be called the son of God! In Luke 2:32 A light to lighten the Gentiles and the Glory of thy people Israel! chapter 4:18 He told the people “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me .because he hath anointed me to  preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord. verse 2l –This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.”  This is the reason that JESUS is the sweetest Name I Know!

Tis so sweet to trust in JESUS, Just to take Him at His Word. Just to rest upon His promise, Just to know thus saith the Lord!  JESUS,JESUS, how I trust Him, How I proved Him o’er and o’er, JESUS, JESUS,Precious JESUS, Oh for grace to trust Him more!
