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.
The above is taken from the Book ‘Drink from the Cup’ available from Amazon here is a Link for it.

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.
God Bless You for reading my Blog – please feel free to pass it on to your Christian friends.

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.
Love Disciplines (Corrects) !
Proverbs 13 verse 24
He who spares the rod hates his son
he who loves him is careful to discipline him.
This does not mean that we should go about hitting our children with a rod until they cower before us. It does mean that we must discipline them in a way that they will understand not to do that bad thing again.
As children of God did you know that God disciplines us?
Because He loves us He is constantly correcting us, that is how it should be with us and our natural children.
They must not be allowed to do just as they like, when and how they like, neither can we in God’s Kingdom.
Today let us rejoice that Our Father in Heaven loves us so much that He disciplines us with love.

I hope you have a lovely day and that you enjoy looking or purchasing some of the above.
May God continue to Bless you and your family with Love today.
Psalm 115 verse 1
Not to us, O LORD,
not to us but to Your Name for the Glory,
because of Your love and faithfulness.
I give you the glory today O LORD because of your love and faithfulness to me,
I thank you for all your blessings to me,
I am so blessed by you and by Jesus and by your Holy Spirit.
Taken from the book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R. Larman.
So what does faithfulness mean then?…………. It could be that we are trustworthy, loyal to each other. Also it could mean to keep a promise – to be faithful to the one we made a promise to.
So, have we made a promise to God our Heavenly Father by inviting Jesus into our life. If so we need to be faithful and give God the Glory that He sent His Son Jesus to be our Saviour while we are on this earth.
What a privilege to be a Christian to share in God’s love for us and His faithfulness towards us.
Then to give Him the Glory for all our Blessings – large or small – for we are truly Blessed.

Do you like Comfort?
On the Wings of an Eagle let your Spirit Soar.
Psalm 34 verse 18
The LORD is close to the broken-hearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
We all get broken-hearted and crushed in our spirit at sometime during our lives here on this earth. Let us remember to come to God at those times, sit at His feet, give Him our burdens and He will comfort us by His Holy spirit, whom Jesus sent to be our comforter. Today if this is a day of any sort of burden for you, please know that God is very close to you.

What else can we say about comfort?
Sometimes it is nice to just have a cup of tea, that can be a comfort when we get a bit stressed with whatever is going on during the day.
We should make time to have some kind of comfort for ourselves …… that can be things that give us pleasure, maybe going for a walk, gardening, craft work anything that we are able to do and enjoy doing can be called a comfort I think. For myself I like to do ‘Oil Paintings, Water colours, Pen/Ink drawings – they can be called my comfort zone. Also the books that I write can take me out of the everyday world into the lovely world of writing.
Another kind of comfort is to curl up in bed when we are not feeling very well. That is a great comfort to lay there and pray for the sickness or painfulness to go away. As we lay there in our comfort zone it is a good time to pray for others who maybe in need of some prayer, then some of our discomfort goes away!
Remember – The Holy Spirit is our Comforter…… however – we do need to ask Him to comfort us and He will. Jesus sent His Holy Spirit to help us, guide us and comfort us. That is a marvelous thing to remember when we are in need of any kind of help or comfort.
Praise The Lord He can comfort us, wherever we may be in this world.
Here are a couple of Links:
* Have a Lovely Comfortable Day Today *
Rejoice in your heart with Joy!
Psalm 118 verse 28-29
You are my God and I will Praise you;
You are my God and I will exalt you.
Give thanks to The Lord for He is Good;
His love endures forever.
Do you know that God’s love does endure forever..
God is our Father in Heaven.
If we belong to Him as Christians and have invited Jesus into our hearts, into our lives He is our Heavenly Father.
He will always love us even though we often ignore Him and take Him for granted.
Actually God does love all the creatures that He has made.
But as humans we do need to acknowledge Him, talk to Him, listen to Him.
That would be through The Holy Spirit that we have within us when we become a Christian.

The Book of Prayers is written to help new (as well as other Christians) to pray for certain things and people. Some young Christians are not sure how to pray or what to pray for – so this book is a special help for them to pray specific Prayers.
True Stories of God Book talks about things that God has allowed to happen in my life. Hope you find it interesting.
I Pray that you have a good Day Today.
It’s Good to be a Christian
In the Bible Paul says .. in –
Romans Chapter 1 verse 16.
“I’m not ashamed of the Gospel
because it’s the Power of God
unto salvation to those who believe.”
If you are a Christian that is marvellous and I can say God Bless you.
If you are not a Christian and would like to be one here below is a way to become one.
If you do really mean that you would like Jesus to be with you – just repent of your sins – tell Him you are sorry for all the wrong things you have done throughout your life and ask Him to come into your heart (your life) and He will.
When we are Christians we have a direct line to God our Heavenly Father through Jesus Christ His Son. That is awesome, also we have The Holy Spirit in us to help us to pray.
If you are not sure how to pray it is good to pray The Lord’s Prayer. Which you can find in your Bible:
THE LORDS PRAYER.
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed by your Name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For the Kingdom, the Power and Glory are yours now and forever. Amen.
Here are some LINKS for you to look at:
Have a Lovely day – Praise The Lord for today and all His Blessings to us.
Let us have Faith
James: Chapter 5 verse 16
……..The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
This is taken from the Old King James version of the Holy Bible.
So what does it mean ?
– Let us have Faith ! –
Well – we need to have Faith to Pray and to believe that our Prayers are heard by God our Heavenly Father.
We can pray all sorts of Prayers and of course we do, mainly for our wants, not always for our needs. There is a difference of course and God will not always answer Prayers if what we pray for is not for our own good.
However if we really need to intercede for someone or something then James Chapter 5 verse 15 says — ‘and the prayer of Faith shall save the sick and the Lord shall raise him up and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.’ (Remember it is the Prayer of Faith) no good just asking God to do something you must have faith to believe that he can. This is where it needs to be the effective Prayer of a Righteous man (or woman)
If we are not walking with Jesus as our Lord and Saviour and with The Holy Spirit what is the use of praying prayers into space? God hears our prayers through Jesus Christ our Lord. So they need to come straight from our heart and soul to be a fervent prayer.
We must mean truly what we are asking God for, not just a flimsy prayer hoping He will hear.
Yes of course He hears our Prayers – but I believe they fall by the wayside if we are not serious about them!
But when we are in trouble I find the shortest Prayer to pray is ‘Help Lord’ yes I am sure he hears our prayers for help because we do really mean it.
