This poem was inspired by a blogger, a prayer warrior, and a sister in Christ Jesus. https://betsyborchardt.wordpress.com/2016/09/14/love-is-faithful/
Please take a moment and read her loving words she penned to inspire my heart!
Dr.Dobson, Said something like this, Children only know what we teach them. Here is what we should be teaching our children!
For most of us the Christmas season officially starts today.
With that in mind, I thought I’d share something from the email bag.
Remember the reason for the season everyone 🙂
JESUS vs SANTA
Santa lives at the North Pole…
JESUS is everywhere.
Santa rides in a sleigh…
JESUS rides on the wind and walks on the water.
Santa comes but once a year…
JESUS is an ever present help.
Santa fills your stockings with goodies…
JESUS supplies all your needs.
Santa comes down your chimney uninvited…
JESUS stands at your door and knocks, and then enters your heart when invited.
You have to wait in line to see Santa…
JESUS is as close as the mention of His name.
Santa lets you sit on his lap…
JESUS lets you rest in His arms.
Santa doesn’t know your name, all he can say is “Hi little boy or girl, what’s…

Eighteen months ago I started a project wondering why God brought me here. The hours were long, the stress was high, the work load very heavy, and the co-workers hard tough men. Why would God send me to work here on this project and to the world I walked away from many years ago?
What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them has gone astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountains and go in search of the one that went astray?
At work many men came and many did not have what it took to perform this task yet early on I met this man who was in his early fifties and was somewhat new in his walk with Christ we became friends. Because of the nature of the work the names shall be changed for the good of all, so he shall be known as Chuck.
Chuck and I would have many great conversations about life with Christ. One day Chuck was telling me about his grandchildren and how they were being raised without any knowledge of God and how he did not know how to teach them about Jesus. I told I have a tool for you so I gave him a copy of “Donkey Tells” and said to do not worry the little story will walk them through the Good News of the Gospel and is told in a way they will understand and keep them captive. When you are alone with them read it to them and answer their questions as you go along. Pray for their hearts to be open to the Good News before you start and the Holy Spirit will do the rest.
Chuck took the little book and did as I as ask and he kept me informed too his progress. He was surprised by the story line and how his grandchildren wanted him to keep reading to them. It took time before he finely finished the and one morning he told “It worked I prayed with my grandsons and they now have Jesus in their hearts. The boy`s ages are from 7 to 10 years of age and they now are going to church with Chuck.
Three weeks ago on a Monday morning before work I got a text-message from Chuck, “Please pray for my seven-year old grandson he was hit by a car and I will not be in today.
The next Monday morning I met Chuck in the parking lot and he was barely holding himself together as he told me they took Steven off life support and he is gone. I began to weep with Chuck and prayed the Holy Spirit over us. Then these words came to me, “Steven is in heaven and you prayed with to have Jesus in his heart. He is in the arms of Jesus right now and He shall always be forever and ever, and you shall see him again soon. You did your job as his Grandfather and gave him Jesus.”
Chuck said, “No you gave him Jesus it was your words in “Donkey Tells” that showed him the way.”
I replied, “It was the Holy Spirit who gave me the story and many, many others along the way who helped me get the story published who gave your grand son Jesus. We all have an equal reward in the saving of this young soul. One thing when we get to heaven will you introduce me to Steven?”
Chuck came back with, “Steven is waiting for you to get to heaven he has a hug for you.”
1.) Do you know my name?
2.) I love to play games with humans, do you know what one might be?
3.) Do you know what the Donkey Promise is?
If you do not know the answers to these questions ask a child who has read, “Donkey Tells, A Promise Kept” or better yet get a copy and find a child and read it to them! If you answered the last pop quiz and got all the answers right you must hold your hand up till I call on you. I am looking forward to all your answers and God Bless all you humans, Amen!
1.) What is the name of this donkey?
2.) Who was this donkey’s master?
3.) Can you name two events in history which this donkey was an eye-witness?
The answers to these questions can be found in:
This week there has been a lot of post about Love so here is a little something I have found on the subject:
If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you?….
Love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High: for He is kind to the ungrateful and the selfish.
Luke 6:32, 35 Revised Standard Version of the Bible, copyright 1946 and 1952
God does not love as we love; God does not
Love us for any loveliness within
Our hearts and souls; He loves us knowing what
We are in all our selfishness and sin.
God does not love us weakly, with a blind
Indulgence; He must change our lives, since He
Is holiness, inexorably kind,
From what they are to what they ought to be.
We love the lovable, the wise, the good,
Those who return our love, those who have done
What we desire; but God’s fatherhood
Loves each ungrateful, selfish, loveless one.
God does not love as we love, but we may
Learn how to love as God Loves, while we pray.
