This Flower we call Morning Glory…… the Flowers look like lovely Trumpets, have you ever felt the petals they are so soft to touch.
Jude: verse 21.
Keep yourselves in God’s love
as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ
to bring you to eternal life.
What about today then,
are we really keeping ourselves in God’s love.
Can we show that love of Jesus to someone today – just a small act of kindness,
even a smile to someone will show God that we are waiting in His Love.

Remember God is the God of Love – He will be happy to hear from you today because He Loves You ……… as well as me.
Have a Lovely Day today walking in the Love of God.
It is nice to be Righteous !
Psalm: 58 verse 11
Then men will say,
‘Surely the righteous will are rewarded,
surely there is a God who judges the earth’
Because God says that we shall be rewarded, then we know that He will reward us for sure. However, we do need to be righteous, we cannot expect rewards for nothing. God blesses us with all good things. How He will surely reward us when we become even more righteous. I think we ought to make a special effort today to live a good life because God is our judge, who gives according to His will.
The above is taken rom the Book: ‘Drink rom the Cup’
Isaiah 61:3 … Talks out the trees of righteousness the Planting of The Lord. You may like to read about that sometime.
So how are we going today to be righteous then……. we should try to be free from guilt or sin. We all know that is not easy when we have so many things during each day to deal with. Sometimes we get frustrated and cross, the Bible says in your anger do not sin….
Best think of something nice that we can do today for The Lord of for someone in our family or for maybe for a friend.
One of the nicest things we can do is to pray….. it is good to pray for our family and friends but what about our Town or place that we live in. Surely that would be a righteous thing to do as we go about our daily life. Also to pray for those less fortunate than ourselves, there are so many things to pray about.
I hope you have a lovely righteous day today.

Ripple on a Pond.
The above is one of my Oil Paintings…..yes it has a pond on it so thought it would good on here.
Job: Chapter 1 – verse 21.
“Naked I came from my mothers’ womb and naked I shall depart.
The Lord gave and The LORD has taken away:
may the name of The LORD be praised”
The above was said by Job and it is true, naked we came into this world and naked we shall leave it. So while we are here let us bless those around us as best we can especially our family. Let us see them enjoy some of the assets we would eventually leave them when we die by giving now while we are alive. Let us share in their enjoyment. Maybe it could be just a special little heirloom we are saving for them, or, maybe finance we are saving for them. If they are in need as some young families are, let us be gracious and try to help. Today let us remember – we cannot take anything with us when we go, that also includes our love. let them know you love them. Our families do need our love more than maybe they or we realize. The LORD surely blesses us as we bless others.
Today let us think on our nakedness before The LORD.

Here is the Poem that I wrote about being a Ripple on a Pond…
Are You a Ripple on a Pond. ?
Are you a Ripple on a Pond?
Do you see what I see? Can you pray for those who cannot pray?
Will you pray for those who cannot see? Are you a Ripple on a Pond.?
Like a pebble thrown into the middle, our prayers can go out and around
in a never ending and expanding circle. Are you a ripple on a pond?
Do you see beyond the horizon? Will your words or works reach out
in that never ending circle of prayer? I pray I am a Ripple on a Pond.
My prayers going forth throughout the world, for those lost souls to be gathered in
and for everyone of them to be cleansed from sin.
Do try to be a Ripple, even starting with a trickle, of prayer and praise.
Like a pebble creating waves on a Pond, may your Prayers go forward even beyond.
So are you a Ripple on a Pond?
With prayers, reach far beyond all that you see. Look and use your spiritual eyes for Jesus.
Do something for Him that really, really pleases.

I pray you have a lovely Day Today.
Do we have Patience Today?
Psalm 40 verse 1
I waited patiently for The LORD;
He turned to me and heard my cry.
I pray LORD that I may always wait for you and that you will hear my cry,
wherever I may be at any time here on this earth.
I pray that The LORD hears your cry today
for what ever your needs may be.
Also that you may have peace in your heart today. Amen.
Taken from the Book ‘Drink from the Cup’
Yes we do need to Pray.
Well we do need to have patience even to pray sometimes,
because time gets away from us and we think we will wait until a later time.
Then we find that the day has gone and we did not find that (later time) to pray.
If only we could start the day off with a prayer how much better our day may be.
It does take patience to let go of other things we would like to be doing
and to just sit and pray for a while.
Even five or ten minutes to start with if you are not used to sitting alone and having a quiet time instead of rushing about to get things done.
After all most things will not run away they will still be there waiting for us to do.
Unless of course there is something really urgent that needs to be done then we must get on and do it.
I like to think of this Painting that I painted as The Dove of Peace.
We do need peace in our hearts most times when we find the patience to sit and pray.
The Lord God gives us patience and peace when we are going through a difficult situation.
But the thing is we do need to ask Him.
Also He will comfort us when we do cry out to Him.
Jesus taught us to pray His special Prayer ‘The Lords Prayer’
Which is best to pray if you are not sure how to pray because that
covers all that we need.
*May God Bless you today with His Love*

Choose to Love Others
St. Luke: 6 verse 32
If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you?
Even sinners love those who love them!
That’s true isn’t it! But as Christians we are meant to love the unlovely, just as Jesus did – to help them, befriend them, most of all to show them the love of Jesus. Even in our own families there are relatives that we feel we cannot be with for long, we have to overcome that feeling and remember God made them and we are not only to tolerate them but to love them. It can be a bit of a problem that Scripture but remember we are to overcome and nothing is impossible with God. So we had better ask Him for His grace to help us. It’s amazing what happens when we ask His help.

At this particular time where most of us have to stay indoors or isolated because of the Corona Virus the above reading is worth thinking about – because lots of families will be shut in together and will miss the freedom of going out to work or play.
It may be difficult to all get along together at close quarters for the 14 days that our Government wants us to do.
But it is the best thing that we can do to help our family and friends also our work mates or colleagues.
So let us do it with a good grace remembering that it is not as bad as what Jesus had to endure for us.
I Pray that you all keep well and happy at this present time and will be able to help where needed if someone less fortunate than yourself needs help for shopping etc., if they are incapacitated or isolated with no family to help them.
May GOD BLESS YOU and keep you and your love ones safe.

Let’s do Something Nice Today
1 Samuel: Chapter 1 verse 18
She said, “may your servant find favour in your eyes” Then she went her way and ate something and her face was no longer downcast.
Today, let us too find favour in Our Father God’s eyes, let us think of something nice to do for Him today, then we too can celebrate with something good to eat and our face need not be downcast.
The story is about Hannah the Mother of Samuel who was praying in her heart to God in the Temple. As her lips were moving they thought she was drunk as no words were coming out of her mouth.
It is good to remember that we do not always have to pray out loud for our Father in Heaven to hear what we are praying and hoping for in our hearts.
Maybe today we can do something nice for someone, then we need not feel downcast……(that’s if we were in the first place) But what ever we do – it should be done for the Lord. It could be just a kind word for someone, or a phone call to keep in touch. If we help someone in anyway at all that would be a blessing for them. So if Jesus is your Lord and Saviour – what a lovely thing to do something nice for Him today. One Special thing to do is to pray for someone and ask that God would kindly bless them. They do not need to know that you have prayed for them. God our Father in Heaven will hear the prayers of your heart just as He did with Hannah, Samuel’s Mother as it says so in The Bible.
Hear is a link to – Book of Prayers – this is a help for people who are not sure how or what to pray for and a reminder to some of us that there are other things and people that need our prayer. I hope it will be useful to many especially to new Christians if they cannot find the help they need.
*** I Hope you have a lovely Day Today Something nice that I can say for you Today is May God Bless You with Contentment Today and Always. Amen. ***
