For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16

 

This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.  Greater love hath  no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.  Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.  John 15: 12-14

Good morning, Friends. 

It is a bright, sunny morning here in South Carolina, with the birds singing happily in the trees over here.  You would think it is already springtime, hehehe!  I threw out some bread and lots of squirrels came to breakfast a little while ago...usually the bluejays get to the breakfast first.  There was one bluejay that came and perched nearby the window that I was looking out of.  It looked so beautiful. 

  As usual, having a cup of coffee coffeeyellowmuganimgif.gif image by autumn1234567over here. 

I've been reading in John in the Bible this morning and put one of the scriptures I read up above the picture again.  In chapter 15, Jesus is telling us to abide in Him, to obey his commandments, to love one another and to bear much fruit in Him.  He says if we abide in Him, He will abide in us and we will bring forth much fruit.  He reminds us of His wonderful love He has for each of us, in that He gave His life for us so that we may have the gift of eternal life through Him.  What a blessed Lord and Savior He is!  And I thank Him!  :-D

 

Thank you for your prayers for our Daughter whom I visited again yesterday and she was MUCH BETTER.

 

I also visited Mom IndianWomanOlder.gif image by autumn1234567and her roommate yesterday and they are doing better, as well.  Thanks again for your prayers for all.  Jesus tells us in verse 7 of John 15, 'If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you'.

 

I have another prayer request.  We got a call yesterday that another friend's husband has passed.  Both of them dear, sweet friends.  This is two friends who lost their husbands, unexpectedly, within the past 3 and a half months.  Please remember them in prayer.

 

Also, I talked with Sister Sisterstandingtippinghatanimgif.gif image by autumn1234567yesterday and she sounded stronger and said she is doing much better.  :-D

 

.......................................

Hope you are doing well and having a blessed day in the Lord.

 

Love, Maria

Good morning, Friends. Hoping you are having a good morning.  As usual, having a cup of coffee coffeeyellowmuganimgif.gif image by autumn1234567over here.  Have some?   Looks like we have rain on the way.

I've been reading in John in the Bible this morning and put one of the scriptures I read up above the picture to share with you, under the scripture I usually keep at the top of the page.  There is much to be happy about, when we know we belong to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who shed his blood and gave his life on the cross for us for the remission of our sins so that we can have forgiveness and  ETERNAL LIFE through him!  :-D

 

Please pray for our Daughter whom I visited yesterday and she wasn't feeling too well.

Hello and happy Sunday to you!

 

Hubby is home today and we are both very excited over the beautiful white wonderland of SNOW we awoke to early this morning.  Although very cold (20's) here, the birds were still singing happily in the trees, as Hubby called my attention to the singing as we stood at the kitchen window together.   I threw out some bread for them and you should have seen all the birds that came and had breakfast!  Red cardinal, bluejays and snowbirds.  Also a squirrel.  It is sunny here this morning.

We were trying to decide whether to get out in the snow and go to church but we got a call saying church is canceled today.  We have weather advisories here in South Carolina about ice on roads, so I guess this is for the best.  Hubby and I sat at the dining room table and I read to us 2 chapters in John from the Bible about Jesus healing a blind man and also about He said in verse 9 of John 10:  'I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and shall find pasture.'.   

I don't know if we will later on today go see MomIndianWomanOlder.gif image by autumn1234567or not.  I have a few things to take to her.

I am having a cup of coffeecoffeeyellowmuganimgif.gif image by autumn1234567...have some?

Hope you are having a good day. Every day with the Lord IS a good day. Is He your Lord and Saviour? I hope so, because He sure is mine! If He's not your Lord and Saviour, today is the day of salvation and there is NO TIME like today to get right with our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Believe on Him, repent of your sins and ask His forgiveness. It is that simple. There is NO other way to be saved but through Jesus. He is the way, the truth, and the life and no one goes to the Father but through Him. I believe we are living in the last days and many will wish one day that they had chosen to believe in Him and live for Him while they were here on earth to make that decision and to do so!

 

Love, Maria

Good morning Maria - what part of SC are you in. That seems to be unusual weather for your area. I am sure it looks pretty. Have a great day.

RYC: Actually it's 5 workouts completed out of 115 possible. In a year's time. Not that great--and it was last year. It's really a notation to myself. But thanks for your comment anyway!

Hello, Friends.

Hope you are having a wonderful day in the Lord.

.................................

It has been a chilly, misting-rain-sort of day today.  Nice.

...................................

 

This morning, I picked up a friend and she and I went to the next town over and visited another friend of ours, who was in the hospital.  Please remember her in your prayers.  She was to be released later today, I think. 

.................................

After I took my friend home, I took my  Aunt Auntanimgif.gif image by autumn1234567a red rose in a vase with a red ribbon for Valentine's Day, which as you know, is tomorrow, and visited her and my cousin, her Son.  He has recently been released from the hospital also.  Please remember him in prayer.  He seemed to be doing well and also my Aunt, too, thank the Lord.

 

......................................

 

My Sister Sisterstandingtippinghatanimgif.gif image by autumn1234567hasn't been feeling well, so please continue to remember her in prayer.  Also my Mother IndianWomanOlder.gif image by autumn1234567and her dear, sweet Roommate and others at their nursing home need prayer as well.  Thank you for all your prayers.

 

Most of all, let us not forget to pray for the unsaved, that they will get saved and live for the Lord Jesus.

.....................................

 

Hope you are having a good day.

 

Love, Maria

It is a rainy morning here in South Carolina.  I thank the Lord for the rain.  I've been sitting by the the window in the dining room at the table (done had breakfast), looking outside at the rain cascading off the rooftop coming down.  I threw out some bread earlier and quickly a bluejay flew down from a tree to get breakfast.  :-D

HubbyLargeManWaving.gif image by autumn1234567 is doing well.  He worked both days over the weekend.

I may visit MomIndianWomanOlder.gif image by autumn1234567 today and see how she and her roommate are doing.  They have both been sick but have been getting better.  Thank you for your prayers for them. 

 

Please remember in prayer cousins and a friend today.   (The Lord knows.)   Also please help me pray for the lost, that they will repent and get right with the Lord while there is still time to do so.

Hello and happy Sunday to you!

Not feeling too good over here this morning. 

I am at home keying this to you.

Hubby is working today.

MomIndianWomanOlder.gif image by autumn1234567appeared to be doing better when I saw her day before yesterday.  Thank you for your prayers.

 

I read some in the Bible this morning, which I usually do.  As you read in the Bible, you learn so many things you never knew or may have forgotten.  It is like it comes to life as you read it.  I was reading in Luke chapter 22:3 where it said that satan entered into Judas Iscariot (who betrayed Jesus).  I've read the new testament repeatedly but somehow I must have forgotten it said that (although I knew what Judas Iscariot did).   Also I read about an angel who came to Jesus, (Luke 22:43) strengthening Him as he prayed. 

......................................

 

Hope you are having a good day. Every day with the Lord IS a good day. Is He your Lord and Saviour? I hope so, because He sure is mine! If He's not your Lord and Saviour, today is the day of salvation and there is NO TIME like today to get right with our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Believe on Him, repent of your sins and ask His forgiveness. It is that simple. There is NO other way to be saved but through Jesus. He is the way, the truth, and the life and no one goes to the Father but through Him. I believe we are living in the last days and many will wish one day that they had chosen to believe in Him and live for Him while they were here on earth to make that decision and to do so!
