Simply Sunday-If We’ve Ever Needed You

I hope you’ve had a good weekend! Sundays are busy for us but I’m always thankful to be able to go to church and worship. I love being with my church family!

This song by Casting Crowns was recently sung at one of our services. It’s several years old but still relevant today. The song is, If We’ve Ever Needed You. I’m not a pessimist but it just seems to me that our world is going down a dark path.

What has happened to morality? Do we even know what morality is anymore? Morality is defined as knowing the distinction between right and wrong or good and bad behavior.

We’ve not only lost morality but our christian values are being attacked. I sometimes worry what our grandson, Colt Allen, will face in his lifetime.

Simply Sunday-If We've Ever Needed You

I love the words to this song (the video is fair). I hope you enjoy it and realize–We Need Him!

 

 “But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 25:15b

Have a blessed day!

Simply Sunday-The Bible

Simply Sunday-The Bible

Here’s what I’ve learned about the Bible: That reading God’s word prepares me not only for today but for tomorrow, and the next day, and the day after, and the day after that and so on and so on.

Through reading the Bible, we come to know Jesus who is the bread of life. John 6:35 says, Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.”

I love how Ann Voskamp describes God’s word, “a sure Word, a pure Word, the only secure Word. I believe the words on those pages are breathed from the very throne room of heaven, are the love letter penned from the heart of God; a beacon of light for stumbling feet to find sure footing on a dark path.”

I don’t know about you, but I need a beacon of light!

Praying today that you will seek His word. Have a blessed Sunday!

Simply Sunday-Think Happy Stuff

Simply Sunday-Think Happy Stuff

I found this coffee mug in the hospital gift shop (I’ve spent a lot of time in the hospital this week with my family members). It looked so cheery and springlike, I decided to get it. I also loved  what it said, “think happy stuff.”

It reminded me of my daughter when she was young, and I would tuck her in bed at night. She was always afraid she would have bad dreams so after we prayed, we would think happy stuff like Christmas, birthday parties, swimming pools, and playing outside.

I’d list all the things she loved, hoping she would dream about happy stuff. Of course we still had to leave the hall light on and we couldn’t shut her door all the way. But most of the time, thinking happy stuff worked!

I think it’s good to think happy stuff! Philippians 4:8 (NLRV) says, “Finally, my brothers and sisters, always think about what is true. Think about what is noble, right and pure. Think about what is lovely and worthy of respect. If anything is excellent or worthy of praise, think about those kinds of things.”

There’s so much bad and sin in our world, we need to fill our minds and our hearts with happy stuff and the best thing we can fill ourselves with, is God’s word.

Do you have to remind yourself to think happy stuff? Are you filling your mind and heart with scripture?

Have a blessed Sunday!

Simply Sunday-Hold Me

My husband took this picture of Colt with his Iphone. It’s not the best picture or the best quality but this is what Colt does all the time now.

Simply Sunday

He stands right in front of you, puts his hands up in the air and opens and closes his fingers. He’s saying, “I need you to hold me!”

It’s the most precious thing and there’s no way we can say no to him. So we pick him up and we hold him, we tell him how much we love him and we squeeze him real tight.

When I was looking at this picture it reminded me of Matthew 18:2-6, “Jesus called a little child to him and put the child among them. Then he said, “I tell you the truth, unless you turn from your sins and become like little children, you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven. So anyone who becomes as humble as this little child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven.

Don’t we need to come to our Heavenly Father the same way Colt comes to us? Just humbling ourselves and admitting we need Him.

It’s easy to think that we can do things on our own but deep down inside we have a need for a Savior and I’m so thankful when I lift my hands up that he’s there to hold me and comfort me.

Have a blessed Sunday!

Simply Sunday-Beauty Tips

Happy Sunday Friends! I love sharing fashion and beauty tips but if you’ve been following my blog for very long you also know, I love to share tips on inner beauty.

My sister and I were talking about an upcoming speaking engagement I have and I told her I wanted to share inner beauty tips. She reminded me of this poem. Traci had found it on one of our Mom’s files on her computer after she passed away. It was simply titled, Beauty Tips.

by Audrey Hepburn

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge you’ll never walk alone.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anybody.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.
True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.
It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows.
And the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.
 

It didn’t surprise Traci and I that these were the beauty tips that our Mom would feel are important. Mom’s beauty came from her personal relationship with Jesus Christ and she loved to share about Him with everyone she knew.

{This was Mom, with my daughter and I just a few months before she passed away.

She has left a lasting legacy.}

Who has influenced you in your walk with Christ? Are you leading others to Him?

Have a Blessed Sunday!
