A little child walked along a road in a neighborhood he had never seen.  Momma had him by the hand and asked, "Do you know where you are?"  The child replied, "No".    Momma continued, "Do you know where you are going?"  Again the child replied, "No".    Momma asked, "Well, do you know how to get back home?"  "No, I don't", the child answered.

 

"Well," momma inquired,"what will you do if you get lost?"  "Oh, I'm not lost...

Bowing VS Stooping

Posted by Lorraine Serra on May 4, 2010 at 6:40 AM Comments comments (0)

Swing your partner round 'n round, bow to the right, bow to the left. Stoop to pick up a coin, pat a dog, speak to a toddler, pull a renegade weed.

 

Bow for the curtain call on that spring musicale.  Stoop to reach the vaccuum under the bed.   Bow and extend your hand as you greet a head of state.   Stoop to pick up the dirty socks in the middle of the floor.

Every Season

I Surrender All

When the road is hard, and I know at times it is

 very difficult, it is all the more important to rest

 in the capable hands of our Loving Lord.

 

Believe that each day is a gift, an opportunity

to see how God will work all things together

for good (Rom 8:28) in your life.  Allow Him to

lead and carry your burdens.  He is able, and

will not disappoint.

 

Surrender the challenges into His hands,
