Pray

Good Morning! Have you prayed today?  Is prayer something we have to schedule?  Does it have to be only in church? Do we pray only when issues of life arise?  Is praying something for everyone or just for the Pastor...for tho s e who are "leaders"?  What if I don't have the right words?  I can't p r ay like the Pastor does. When I have a need I call my friend, she k n ows how to pray.

Hmmm...did I say "definitive".   The Word of God tells me that He made me......he k

Above the Clouds

S ince, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. Colossians 3:1-4 Ok...here we go...I will be up in a plane in just a little while...really high up...I'm traveling to see my son Mike who relocated to Savannah. Inevitably, I will begin to think about how small everything below me is. It's not the first time that this thought has come to me. There is a peaceful feeling just to look at the clouds and at times it feels like we are standing still. Looking through the window...trying to see below...everything becomes smaller and smaller until you can't see anything except for the peaceful, fluffy, marshmellow-like clouds.
