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.
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.
Here are some Links to look at;
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.

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.

* God Bless you today as you Pray in Faith – Have a Lovely Day *
Matthew: Chapter 24 verse 42
Therefore keep watch,
because you do not know
on what day your Lord will come.
How do we keep watch?
Well – I believe that to keep watch is to try to be ready,
to have our house in order.
That is to say – have our hearts prepared,
ready and waiting just incase it is today
– that Jesus comes.
The above us taken from the Book: ‘Drink from the Cup’
Here is the Link for this book: https://www.amazon.com.au/Drink-Heavenly-Blessings-straight-Bible-ebook/dp/B08F2YC95L/ref=sr_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=drink+from+the+cup&qid=1598250253&s=books&sr=1-4
You can use this book year after year. It has recently been republished to go on the internet – I have been using this little book daily for at least 20years and each day there is something special for us to read and to know. Praise The Lord!
Let us continue to prepare out hearts while we wait for Jesus to come back to this Earth, that means me as well. Let us get rid of all unholy things that are in there. Like jealousy, hate, gossip, bitterness, strife, lies, covetousness, the list goes on and on, lets get rid of them and Praise The Lord ! We should then be more ready if today is the day that The Lord Jesus comes for us.
None of us can live forever on this Planet Earth, let us enjoy our life while we are here – remember we have The Holy Spirit to help us to overcome whatever it is we need to overcome. We have the love of Jesus with us and we have our Heavenly Father who hears all our prayers.
So let us Rejoice for – This is the day that The Lord has made –
let us Rejoice and be glad in it.

What are Scoffers?
Jude: Verse 18
They said to you,
“In the last times there will be scoffers
who will follow their own ungodly desires”
Please help me today God not to follow my own ungodly desires. May your Holy Spirit guide me into all righteousness and truth. Amen.
‘Taken from the Book ‘Drink from the Cup’
Well what does it mean to be a Scoffer, what does it really mean in our lives today. In the Dictionary it says “to speak about something in a scornfully derisive way”
So that means if we ridicule a person or a thing we are being a Scoffer, that does not sound like a very nice thing to do, especially about our family members. Or if we ridicule our children or old people, people with disabilities i.e. deformities, deafness, failing eye sight, poor academic schooling.
As a Christian we can be free from being a Scoffer if we choose to not be one, therefore we need not follow our ungodly desires. It is difficult I know not to follow an unholy desire but we do need to think about these things. We need to realize that in Christ Jesus we have been set free if we choose to be.
So here is a Poem that I wrote because it is lovely to feel set free from awful worldly desires – even if it is only now and then that we can Pray this Poem as a Prayer to thank The Lord Jesus that He did come to set us FREE. !!!
I am Free
I am free, Praise The Lord I am Free.
How am I free, free to Laugh.
Free to Sing, free to Walk
Free to run, free to Pray,
Free to talk, free to eat
Free to drink, free to play
I am free, free – Free.
Yes Free to feel the Breeze on my face.
Free to feel the Sand on the Beach,
Free to Swim in the Ocean,
Free to appreciate the Sky
The Beautiful Sunsets.
Free to watch the Lightening in the Thunderstorms,
Free to hear the Thunder.
Yes I am Free to walk with Jesus – with God my Father in Heaven
Free to appreciate the Holy Spirit in my life
Free to receive all my Blessings
From our Heavenly Father.
Yes I am Free because
Jesus is my Lord and Saviour. Amen.
* I am Free to Praise The Lord *

May God Bless you Today and Always.
Love each other as Brothers
Hebrews:Chapter 13 verse 3
Keep on loving each other as brothers.
Today let us keep that commandment of God to love our Brothers as ourselves. How much more peaceful our day will be when we have no malice or hate in our hearts toward our Brothers and Sisters, just the love of The Lord toward them.
The above was taken from the book ‘Drink from the Cup’ Well – what do you think about loving others as Brothers and Sisters even those that are not very good towards you? I think it is good to pray and ask our Heavenly Father to help us to be nice to them.
Do you know that Jesus is our Brother, If we are a Christian we are part of Gods family, so if we are Brothers and Sisters in Christ that means that yes, we can all Jesus our Brother. That really is an awesome thought don’t you think?
Here is a link you may like to see of the Book that was written for my Family: https://www.amazon.com.au/Jessies-Story-Jessie-Larman/dp/0987207555
I Pray that you have a lovely day and can give a thought to your Brothers and Sisters whether they are Christians or not. How lovely to think of those that have gone before us to Heaven and think about them sometimes with love in our hearts for having known them as part of our family.
May God our Heavenly Father Bless us today as we walk with Jesus and The Holy Spirit.
