I was thinking today about Jesus being tempted in Matthew.

Matthew 4:1-11 (KJV)
Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred. And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash…

Seasons change!!!

the  terrace scenery changes along with the season change,

Ecclesiastes 3:1-22

A time for Everything!!

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to search and a time to quit searching. A time to keep and a time to throw away. A time to tear and a time to mend. A time to be quiet and a time to speak;a time to hate and a time to love; A time for war and a time for peace.

Even today the weather has changed . It was just  three days ago and  it was 95 degrees. Today its chilly and somewhat cold. So too are the changes in the world. Changing and accepting everything seem to be the norm. But we as Christians must remain focused on what the lord has planned and not that of the world.

Yes, its easy to fall into the ways of the world but the lord tells us to remain strong and trust in him for all things.If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you” (John 15:7, NIV).

I believe one of my fellow blogger posted this scripture  this week ,and to that I say Amen!!

Prayer Request!!!

These pictures were taken after the permanent shunt was placed. Has pulled more fluid than it should have from the brain. Isabella will have to lay flat for a couple of days. They will check again in a couple of days and if the fluid does not increase then they will have to replace the shunt with a different one. She is 6 lb 9 1/2 oz today. Please continue to pray. Thank you and love you all♥

OMG!!! What’s fear got to do with it?? You want to know?

It is often wondered why we get sick ?.. why we get ill and have diseases of all kinds? The bible is the book that has been given to us and can answer lots of questions on this matter…all we have to do is seek it out.

The things that we experience may be a manifestation of a root. But thank God, we have an advocate, Jesus Christ, who is our Savior and the Truth that sets us free! (Romans 7:24-25, 8:2) He gives us His mind (I Cor. 2:16). He gives us the power to cast down all imaginations and lies. (II Cor. 10:5) We need to discover what our weapons are to cast out the lies from our minds. (Ephesians 6:14) The Bible says that the Devil is the father of lies! (John 8:44) So we need to learn more about Truth so we can discern the lies and get rid of them. As we get closer to our Heavenly Father through His Son Jesus, we shall “know” the truth that sets us free. If we stay in fear, we are not made perfect in Love, and it’s the love that casts out all fear – God’s love. (I John 4:18) we are not living in truth (faith), and long-term fear could manifest all sorts of problems – physically, mentally and spiritually. (Proverbs 26:2)

Forgive as the Lord has forgiven you.” —Colossians 3:13

 What it is: Researchers studying the health benefits of forgiveness generally define it as the process of letting go of the pain, anger and resentment caused by an offense.
13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. 14 But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. 15 Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. 16 For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.

Psalm 66:18-20

New International Version (NIV)

18 If I had cherished sin in my heart,
the Lord would not have listened;
19 but God has surely listened
and has heard my prayer.
20 Praise be to God,
who has not rejected my prayer
or withheld his love from me!

I can go on with a lot more but I want us to seek out the bible as the “health source” for us all and why our prayers may or may not be answered… why we get sick…are we living in divine health?….look deep into your heart and remember …the father knows it well so confess it all to the lord!!!

From the Heart!!!

I find it interesting that when I started this blog how hard it was to write. I have always love to write and show a reflection of what I felt was self. But as the Holy Spirit entered my life I write what the lord places on my heart instead of always about me. 

To allow the Holy Spirit to have his way, allows you to let go of self and embrace something so much more important than who you are but who he is….he allows you to use your own experiences in him to share with others…that even includes the bad times that we have all experience.

2 Timothy 1:7

For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.

Beautiful Day!!


It is a wonder day off and I’m enjoying the beauty and planting ground cover. I’m blessed to have some wonderful people in my life. I’m enjoying the new page and the wonderful followers of it and meeting people from all over the world that share a love of God and also seek to become closer with God and to bring others along.

Our God is awesome God!! And I thank him for the blessings and the beauty this day. Father you are loved by this daughter and many other. Thank you for dying for my sins so that I might live. I look forward to spending time in your presence and for the day I will meet all believers past and present!!Amen!

To all have a blessed day in the lord!!!

Mark Part II

The purpose of Mark is to present the the person, work, and teachings of Jesus. John Mark is the author and he is not one of the twelve disciples, but accompanied Paul on his first missionary journey. (Acts 13:13). The audience the Christians in Rome where the Gospel is written. The time was between A>D 55and 65. The people include Jesus, the 12 disciples,Pilate, and the Jewish religious leaders. The key places where Capernaum, Nazareth, Caesarea,Philippi,Jericho,Bethany,Mount  of Olives,Jerusalem,and Gologotha.

The setting was The Roman Empire  under Tiberius Caesar. The empire with its common language and excellent transportation and communication systems, was ripe to hear Jesus message which spread quickly from nation to nation.


We see Jesus confront demon, healing a man who has leprosy, and forgiving and healing the paralyzed man lowered into Jesus presence by friends.  Next, Jesus calls Matthew(Levi) and has dinner with him and his questionable associates. This initiates the conflict with Pharisees and other religious leaders who condemn Jesus for eating with sinners and breaking the Sabbath.

In Chapter 4, Mark pauses to give a sample of Jesus’ teaching–the parable of the farmer and the illustration of the mustard seed– and the plunges back into the action. Jesus calms the waves, drives out demons,and raises Jairus’s daughter from the dead.

After returning to Nazareth for a few days and experiencing rejection in his hometown, Jesus commissions the disciples to spread the Good News everywhere. Opposition from Herod and the Pharisees increases. and John the Baptist id beheaded. But Jesus continues to move, feeding 5000, reaching out to the women from Syrian Phonenicia, healing the deaf man, and feeding 4000.

Finally, it is time to reveal his true identity to the disciples. Do they really know who Jesus is? Peter proclaims him Messiah but then promptly shows that he does not understand Jesus’ mission. After the Transfiguration, Jesus continues to teach, heal confronting Pharisees about divorce and rich young man about eternal life. Blind Bartimaeus is healed.

Events move more rapidly toward a climax. The Last Supper, the betrayal, the Crucifixion, and the Resurrection are dramatically portrayed, along with more examples of Jesus’ teachings. Mark  shows us  Jesus, moving, serving,sacrificing,and saving! As you read mark, be ready for action. Be open for God’s move in your life, and be challenged to move into your world to serrve.
