Show A Little Kindness

Show A Little Kindness

A Creed by Edgar Albert Guest: Let me be a little kinder, Let me be a little blinder To the faults of those around me, Let me praise a little more; Let me be, when I am weary Just a little bit more cheery, Let me serve a little better Those that I am striving for. Let me be a little braver When temptation bids me waver, Let me strive a little harder To be all that I should be; Let me be a little meeker With the brother that is weaker, Let me think more of my neighbor And a little less of me. Let me be a little sweeter, Make my life a bit completer By doing what I should do Every minute of the day; Let me toil, without complaining, Not a humble task disdaining, Let me face the summons calmly When death beckons me away. #wednesdaywisdom #wednesday...

Have Heart

“God’s glory is on tour in the skies, God-craft on exhibit across the horizon. Madame Day holds classes every morning, Professor Night lectures each evening. Their words aren’t heard, their voices aren’t recorded, But their silence fills the earth: unspoken truth is spoken everywhere. Their words aren’t heard, their voices aren’t recorded, But their silence fills the earth: unspoken truth is spoken everywhere. God makes a huge dome for the sun—a superdome! The morning sun’s a new husband leaping from his honeymoon bed, The daybreaking sun an athlete racing to the tape. The revelation of GOD is whole and pulls our lives together. The signposts of GOD are clear and point out the right road. The life-maps of GOD are right, showing the way to joy. The directions of GOD are plain and easy on the eyes. GOD ’s reputation is twenty-four-carat gold, with a lifetime guarantee. The decisions of GOD are accurate down to the nth degree. There’s more: God’s Word warns...

A Tale Of Two Workplaces

A Tale Of Two Workplaces

I worked at Stonebriar Community Church full-time from 2012 to 2017 in the resource and support areas as Webmaster and Director of Web Services. Resource and support staff departments were excellent under leadership of the Senior Director and Business Administrator. Family and personal benefits were great during this time. From my experience during 2012 to 2017 there was little down side to the job or work environment in the resource and support staff areas. During this time our family also became very involved serving with children, worship and student ministries. Also, our special needs son found a place to establish meaningful connections - it was such a relief to find this level of support and care as special needs parents. The special needs pastoral leader and team were incredible. Pastor Chuck Swindoll and Dr. Steve Farrar are great teachers and speakers. Beginning 2018 the Senior Director of Resource Ministries position was eliminated, resource ministries area dissolved and departments along with the Business Administrator...

A Daily Offering

A Daily Offering

“So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.” ‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:1-2‬ ‭MSG‬‬ https://www.bible.com/97/rom.12.1-2.msg...

How I Treat Those Who are Unable To Care For Themselves

How I Treat Those Who are Unable To Care For Themselves

How we treat and care for the disabled, elderly - those in need - reveals much about who we are. You don’t have to be an adoptive parent, guardian or care giver to show how much you care. Maybe you are an employer of a special needs parent. A friend or family member. A passer by on the street or at the store. Consideration, acknowledgment, concern, prayer, encouragement, kind words - they make a daily difference. ❤️ Everyone can choose to do something every day. Matthew 25:35-40 King James Version (KJV) 35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38 When saw we...
