V-A-L-E-N-T-I-N-E
(song)

V-   is for the victory in Jesus.
A-  is for amazing grace how sweet the sound.
L-   is for His love that lifted me.
and E -   is for eternal  life, when found.
N-   is nothing but the blood of Jesus.
T-   is for  thanksgiving praise we give.
I - is for, Jesus IS the answer
 N-  Is for -  We need His love to live.
 and E-   is  - The love,  He ever  gives.

Angel On A Mission


 

Angel  On A Mission

I'm an angel on a mission from God;
I'm an angel on a mission of love.
I rejoice in the heavenly choir;
Sparkling white my heavenly attire.
I'm practicing for our grand appearance;
Which will be a historical occurrence.
All angels in line- are ready to go;
"Part the clouds! - Go have a glorious show!"
The skies are opening for all to see;
And we spring forth in God's perfect glory.
The clouds are glowing from sky to earth;
As we declare the Saviors holy birth.
Shepherds shield their eyes and quake to the ground;
Rays of light are circling all around.
"Fear not'  I cry, We bring you good tidings;"
In awe we sing upon our golden wings.
We sing, Glory to God in the highest;
The shepherds praise the Lord and feel so blest.
For the Savior was born this holy day;
They gather their sheep and go on their way.
We direct them to the star, radiant ;
And they go to find the new born infant.
Ringing bells and sheep bleating all the way;
They find the Savior on this Christmas day.
If I, an angel, were to speak to you;
With Gods heart of grace , in His love so true.
Of  the Son of God , come to the World;
Would you seek the Savior and make Him Lord?

A Christmas Carol



A Christmas Carol

by J.G. Holland

There's a song in the air!
There's a star in the sky!
There's a mother's deep prayer
And a baby's low cry!
And the star rains its fire while the Beautiful sing,
For the manger of Bethlehem cradles a king.
christmas star
There's a tumult of joy
O'er the wonderful birth,
For the virgin's sweet boy
Is the Lord of the earth.
Ay! the star rains its fire and the Beautiful sing,
For the manger of Bethlehem cradles a king.
wise man
In the light of that star
Lie the ages impearled;
And that song from afar
Has swept over the world.
Every hearth is aflame, and the Beautiful sing
In the homes of the nations that Jesus is King.

We rejoice in the light,
And we echo the song
That comes down through the night
From the heavenly throng.
Ay! we shout to the lovely evangel they bring,
And we greet in his cradle our Saviour and King.

The Connecticut Tragedy


The Connecticut Tragedy

No words can express the pain of losing a child through violence.
The trauma, the heartbreak, the brokenness and the anger.

To never hear your child's laugh again, to never be able to hug them or comfort them.

To live a lifetime without them would be the most unbearable reality to have to face.

-------------------------
Lord, comfort the victims of the Connecticut tragedy.

Let their hearts know that their children are held in your loving arms.

Protect the children of our country and turn our nations heart back to you.

We know that this life is only a vapor and we will see these dear children again.
Lord, protect our children from the influences of this world that lead to this kind of violence.
Shelter the innocent hearts of our children.
------------------
My church and my family will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.
Our hearts are sorrowful for all the victims of this horrific crime.

A Present Sent With Love



 A Present Sent With Love
Jesus was the baby;
Born on Christmas day.
He would one day grow up;
And take our sins away.
Jesus was the baby;
Sent from God above.
Heavens Christmas present;
A present sent with love.
Jesus was the baby;
Held in Mary's arms.
Laid in a manger bed;
And kept from all harm.
Jesus was the baby;
Underneath the star,
Worshipped by shepherds,
And Kings from afar.
Jesus was the baby;
Sent from God above.
Heavens Christmas present;
A present sent with love.

Sour Oranges

 

Sour Oranges

 
Bill Brinkworth
 
On our daily run through the woods, my daughter and I passed a grove of Florida oranges. Each week the little, green oranges grew larger and larger. Soon they showed their familiar orange color.
It seemed this small field of orange trees had been forgotten. The grove did not seem to get any attention. The grass was not mowed, and it looked as if the oranges would just go unpicked and fall to the ground.
“Why waste them?” we thought.
We went to the farmer’s house, and asked permission. “Would you mind if we just picked a couple of bags for our own use?”
“Sure,” he said with a smile. “Take all you want.”
We went back home and got several empty bags, and went back to the grove. After picking a few, I suggested we try one, to see how they were. I took out my penknife and cut us each a piece from the largest, juiciest, orange we had picked.
One quick lick had us both spitting out all of what we had sampled. It was the sourest orange we had ever tasted. They were all too tart to eat, to juice, or for anything useful.
It seems a killing frost several years previously had killed the tree. After its death, a wild orange had sprung up under the graft. The graft is where a sweet fruit branch is spliced on top of a wild, sour, orange tree rootstock. The wild orange seedling was cut away, leaving only a sweet orange-producing branch. The root was from a wild, sour orange producing tree, but the fruit-producing growth produced only sweet juicy oranges.
When the good, orange graft had died, the “tree” resorted to its natural form. Although they looked like sweet oranges, smelled like sweet oranges, and even had leaves that looked very much like that of a sweet orange, the fruit was sour and inedible.
One of the biggest problems Christianity has ever faced is there are many “sour orange Christians”. They look and dress like Christians. They talk as Christians should, and even quote verses from the Bible. They go to church as Christians should, and maybe even carry their copy of the Word of God there. Many of their outward actions appear to be what God would want them to do. Others would even judge, from what they saw in their lives, that they were “good” people.
Inwardly, however they are like the wild orange rootstock. The fruit of their “Christianity,” if any resemblance of it is ever produced, does not honor Christ, is not in line with what the scriptures teach, and is too much like what the unsaved world produces. They claim to be Christian, but their life is not much different than the life of an unsaved person.
When one is truly saved, one is a new, different person as II Corinthians 5:17 tells us. Old ways and lifestyles are done away with, and are replaced with a new way of living. The changes are not superficial, because they are made from the inside. The new “inside” changes what the outside believes and thinks. Yes, the flesh is the same one obtained at birth, and still has the same weaknesses and temptations, but the new born-again (John 3:3) “insides” will help keep the old flesh at bay.
New and different “fruit” will be seen in a born-again person’s life. As the children’s song goes, “The things I used to say, I won’t say them anymore … the things I used to do, I don’t do them anymore … since I have been born-again”. The new, changed heart that is left when the Holy Spirit of God moves in and reigns in one’s life will produce new, goodly, Godly fruit.

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made - Lesson Plan - Restored August 10th, 2014

My Daughter Taught This Lesson To Students Her Own Age
But It Was Written To Teach To A Younger Age Group.

Bulletin Board

Lesson 

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

Can anyone tell me what I taught on over the last couple weeks? God has made each and everyone one of us special. He designed perfectly your fingers, toes, eyes, elbows, nose, hip bone, and the shape you’re in. Open your Bibles to Psalm 139:14 “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.”
Today I brought something very special and beautiful. I brought this rose. Just like God made us special, He has put as much detail into creating a single rose. Each rose is different, not one the same. Some are pink, purple, red, and many other colors. He has created each petal with special care and shaped it perfectly. Now, God did not make this rose. I made this flower which is made out of paper. I had to pick the color of my rose. I took the time to cut out each petal and carefully shape it. I had to make the leaves and put them all in the right places to create my work of art. Even if I made more than one rose, each one would come out different. God has done the same with me and you. He has shaped us perfectly into the young ladies he wants us to be. He knew what color eyes you would have, what color hair you would have, what color skin you would have even before you were born. Can I have a few girls raise their hands and tell me one thing you like about how God made you different from others? Remember girls, God made you special. Thank Him for creating you the way you are. Love the way God made you, you are his masterpiece. God does not want you to hate the way he created you. He loves every feature you have, your eyes, ears, nose…EVERYTHING. Let’s praise Him because we are fearfully and wonderfully made. Roses are red, Violets are blue, God made me and you.

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

Life Application
Once there were two best friends. Marina and Kristina did everything together since they were two years old. They went on play dates, had tea parties, went to the park, and their favorite was to color and do crafts together. Marina and Kristina were so excited the first day of Second grade was tomorrow! They loved going to school together. This year Kristina was going to sleepover at Marina’s house to get ready for the first day of school. They had the best outfits picked out. Both had matching pretty pink flowing dresses with purple flowers. Of course, their favorite colors were purple and pink. Being eager for the first day of school they went to bed super early. The next day they wore their matching pink and purple dresses with confidence until they entered their class room. They looked from girl to girl and noticed all the girls were dressed very different. Their friend, Ashley from first grade walked up to them and started laughing at them. She said in between her giggles, did your mommies make your cute dresses? There so long. Some of Ashley’s friends started coughing and saying ugly under their breaths. Marina thought to herself…am I really ugly? After school that day Marina went straight to her room and was very upset. She looked in her mirror and thought…I am ugly. She said to herself in the mirror, “Look at my nose…it’s too pointy, my ears stick out too much, and my eyes are just the wrong color. I will never look anything like Ashley and her popular clothes.” Marina layed on her bed and cried herself to sleep with the thought of being ugly. While she was crying, her mom had overheard Marina point out the things that she did not like about herself. Marina woke up the next morning and declared to her mom, “I’m sick, I cannot go to school today.” Her mom knew the real reason Marina did not want to go to school that day. Her mom sat down on the edge of her bed and said, “Sweetheart, why don’t you want to go to school today? You love school.” Marina with tears in her eyes said, Mommy, I’m so ugly…all the girls in my class are so much prettier than I am. I hate myself. Marina’s mommy opened her Bible and read Psalm 139:140 “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.” Marina’s mommy told her that God specially made her and no one else looked like Marina because God made her just the way He saw fit. He made her eyes, ears, and nose perfect just for Marina and no one else.
Marina has a decision to make…will she love the way God made her and be thankful or will she hate herself and be unhappy with the way God perfectly designed her?
What would you do?

There Is Only One You


Susan Y Nikitenko   June 9th, 2012
If someone said you were not special;
This assertion is not true.
Though you must work with all your heart;
There is no one - just like you.

You were planned and purposed by our maker;
Before you were ever born.
You are one of His unique creations;
In love and thought you were formed.

There is only one you..
God Made Me
Relay


Game Intructions:
Ages: K-4th

they get to add a piece of their flower. Start with the flower pot, then seed
packets with seeds, and than grow the flower from the stem up. The team that
finishes their flower first must shout "GOD MADE ME" to win the game.
