Thoughts from the Dentist's Chair

Isn't it interesting the thoughts that come
to us during the activities of life?

We go to the dentist or dental hygenist to
clean and repair our teeth. We know where
we should go when we have problems with our
teeth. The dentist can take those cavities out.

Do we know who to go to when sin overtakes our
lives? A lot of us do know. We need to turn to
Jesus, our Savior, to set us free from sin.

Feel free to comment on your thoughts from the
dentist's chair.

Lessons from the Fog

It’s amazing that what was so familiar on a nice
sunny day is so unfamiliar on a foggy day. You
can feel lost. You aren’t sure of which road to
turn on. At least, that’s how I felt this morning
traveling to the dentist. I couldn’t seem to get
my bearings.

Isn’t life like that at times? We can lose our way
at times. We don’t know what lies ahead and it
fills us with apprehension. If we could only see
the future we’d be fine.

At times this morning I’d see headlights or
tail lights of a car in front of me and I’d feel a
little better. Maybe I’d be fine, maybe I’d make
it to my destination after all.

Another scary thing about the fog is that there
are other drivers. What they do will affect me?
Other people in my life can affect me. I have to
be careful that I don’t let them affect me to go
against what I believe, what God would want
me to do.

Things to remember: 1. The fog will lift. It lifts in
our lives, too. Those scary apprehensive times
will get better. 2. Focus on God. This morning I
had to try to focus on the road just in front of me.
I couldn’t see way ahead or to the side. Stay
focused at all times.

We don’t know the future, but we know the “One”
who holds the future. He’s our compass and our

Songfilled Sundays

A Special Gem

Think of the friends you’ve had
Down through the years;
Think of all you’ve shared
All the laughter and tears.

What imprint have they left
Upon your heart;
One that will stay with you,
Even though you’re apart.

Thank God each day
For every one of them
They have all been
A very precious gem.

Wonderfilled Wednesday

My Prayer

Give me a passion and a thirst
That your Word will always come first.
Transform my heart, O LORD, I pray
So I will live my life your way.

You have a marvelous plan for me;
Open my eyes so I can see.
Challenge me so my faith will grow.
Help me seeds from your Word to sow.

Give me compassion for a lost soul
For only in you can a person be whole.
Ignite a desire for devotion to thee
So others will see you living in me.

Experience God's Presence

I feel God
In a gentle breeze
In the hug of a loved one
On a warm sunny day
When raindrops touch my cheek

I hear God
When birds sing
During a mighty thunderstorm
When sleet hits my window
When the wind howls

I see God in
The face of a child
The stars in the sky
A meadow of wildflowers
The beauty of a sunrise

The New Year

Begin the New Year right.
Love God with all your might.
Live by faith and not by sight.
Don't give up, continue to fight.
He'll turn your darkness into light.
Pray and in His Holy Word delight.
His power is greater than dynamite.
Think about heaven, where there is no night.
