O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! Who hast set thy glory above the heavens... When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained, What is man, that thou art mindful of him?... (Psalm 8:1,3,4)

When considering God's greatness, one cannot help but to be grateful for a God that is mindful of YOU!

Got Faith?

Every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it by the handle of anxiety, or by the handle of faith. ~Author Unknown

Faith is putting all your eggs in God's basket, then counting your blessings before they hatch. ~Ramona C. Carroll

Go Ahead Laugh

"Seven days without laughter makes one weak."

Looking at this picture one can only wonder what they were laughing about, but it truly is a reflection of the greatness of laughter. Laughter such a light-hearted spontaneous outburst of joy! You know, I like laughing. Sometimes you may laugh when it is just you, but most likely you are laughing with people. What brings about laughter? Almost anything but you are usually laughing because someone shared a funny story. Laughter and sharing go hand in hand.

Maybe you are experiencing a stressful moment, but if you will take time to laugh, you will feel much better. If you know someone who is having a tough time, please take time and make them laugh. One day I was feeling the "pressure" at work. Jana sent a TM and I laughed until I had tears in my eyes. I know my co-workers wondered what I was laughing about, but her TM sure did brighten my day! I still go back and read the TM and laugh some more. Go ahead, make someone laugh because laughter is contagious!

Jesus He's Better By Sheldon Pryor

Originally uploaded by MAPryor

Sitting here today just relaxing. Okay, I need a video camera because at this very moment Sheldon is outside singing his song, Jesus is Better. Some of the words are: Jesus, He's better than Wii, better than X-Box, better than Nintendo-DS, He's better. Yes, He's Jesus. I just love it! Hmm, maybe we have a future song writer here!

Our neighbor just stepped outside, gave him the thumbs up, and told him he is a good guitar player. At first Sheldon, said, "Mom I thought he was going to tell me to stop. I didn't realize I had an audience." Kids are just the greatest ever. I guess there is more than one way to get the message across. Who knows, his song may have made an impact! I love the very fact that he was singing about Jesus!

Some days, we simply need to relax. Yes, I can think of a million things that I need to do, but for now I am enjoying the sweet smell of banana nut bread that just came out of the oven; I am sipping on coffee, and looking out the window watching my son as he has now changed gears and is using his desk chair as a race car. Okay, you'll have to pardon my musings but today is one relaxing, do not get in a hurry kind of day.

I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for
that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy.
Let's face it, friends make life a lot more fun.
