Quote: When you REGULARLY pray to God, IRREGULAR things happen on a REGULAR basis.

I am happy to report that I have completed writing four chapters of my new book and the introduction all written since Friday of last week, and I will be working on chapter five today and tomorrow.  Please keep me in prayer.  I would like to have this book edited by Easter and to the publisher by mid April, and back to me by Mother’s Day if possible.  Then I can begin writing my third book.  I will reveal the title and nature of the current book soon.  My last book Downloads from Heaven is selling well, with orders and requests coming in every week.

Also, I took a bad fall while shoveling snow today – hit some ice and my right leg went up under and behind me unlike anything I have previously experienced, Continue reading

2012 Blog in review

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 11,000 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 18 years to get that many views.

Prayer Regarding Sandy Hook Elementary… by Max Lucado

Sandy Hook Children


Dear Jesus,

It’s a good thing you were born at night. This world sure seems dark. I have a good eye for silver linings. But they seem dimmer lately.

These killings, Lord.  These children, Lord.  Innocence violated.  Raw evil demonstrated. 

The whole world seems on edge. Trigger-happy. Ticked off. We hear threats of chemical weapons and nuclear bombs. Are we one button-push away from annihilation?

Your world seems a bit darker this Christmas.  But you were born in the dark, right? You came at night. The shepherds were night shift workers. The Wise Men followed a star. Your first cries were heard in the shadows. To see your face, Mary and Joseph needed a candle flame. It was dark. Dark with Herod’s jealousy. Dark with Roman oppression. Dark with poverty.  Dark with violence.

Herod went on a rampage, killing babies. Joseph took you and your mom into Egypt. You were an immigrant before you were a Nazarene.

Oh, Lord Jesus, you entered the dark world of your day. Won’t you enter ours? We are weary of bloodshed. We, like the wise men, are looking for a star. We, like the shepherds, are kneeling at a manger.

Vineyard CrossThis Christmas, we ask you, heal us, help us, be born anew in us.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone —

What happens when you cross a turkey with a centipede?  Everyone gets a leg at Thanksgiving

There’s 3 types of people in the world – those that are good in math and those that aren’t.

I wrote my letter to Santa Claus and asked for a fat wallet and a skinny body and then also stated, and please try not to confuse the two like last year.

 A wife asked her husband to go to the store and buy a carton of milk and she added, if they have avocados get six.   So when husband came home he had six cartons of milk and his wife asked why in the world did he buy six cartons of milk and he replied, because they had avocados.

Thinking she had possibly not heard me the first time, I decided to ask again. “How much time is the wait for a table?”

Looking up from her book, the hostess smiled and said “About ten minutes. We will inform you when your table is ready.”

A short time later, I heard an announcement over the intercom system, “Willette B. Long… Willette B. Long, your table is ready.”

An 84-year-old man was fishing in a boat in the middle of a lake, and he heard a voice – “pick me up”  and looking all around he did not see anything – then a few moments later came the voice, “pick me up” and the man looked down and saw a frog in the water and the frog said, “pick me up and kiss me and I will turn into a beautiful young lady and become your wife”  so the man picked up the frog and put it in his shirt pocket, and the frog said, ” Are you deaf, I said if you pick me up and kiss me I will turn into a beautiful young lady and will become your wife.”  But the man replied, ” at 84 I don’t really want or need a wife, but a talking frog – now that is something I can use.”   Continue reading

Mother Teresa

The highest form of worship is to find the least among you and treat them like Jesus.”

“People are often unreasonable and self-centered.  Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives.  Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you.  Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous.  Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow.  Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough.  Give your best anyway.  For you see, in the end, it is between you and God.  It was never between you and them anyway.” 

“Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.” 

“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.” 

“Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.”

God doesn’t require us to succeed, he only requires that you try.”

“At the end of life we will not be judged by how many diplomas we have received, how much money we have made, how many great things we have done.
We will be judged by “I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat, I was naked and you clothed me. I was homeless, and you took me in.” 

-Mother Teresa
