Wind and Snow

----In whatsoever state I am , therein to be content. (Phil. 4:11, RV----Be content in it even if not with it.)

Strong grows the oak in the sweeping storm,-- Safely the flower sleeps under the snow,-- And the farmer's hearth is never warm -- Till the cold wind starts to blow. By Josiah Gilbert Holland--------In Traveling Toward Sunrise------- By Mrs. Charles Cowman

The litte sharp vexations And the briars that catch and fret, Why not take all to the Helper Who has never failed us yet? Tell Him about the heartache,And tell Him the longings, too; Tell Him the baffled purpose When we scarce know what to do. Then, leaving all our weakness With the One divinely strong, Forget that we bore the burden, And carry away the song. By Margaret Sangster
---in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength (Isa. 30:15) Do you know what Luther said? ''Suffer and be still and tell no man thy sorrow; trust in God--His help will not fail thee.'' This is what Scripture calls keeping silent before God. To talk much of one's sorrows makes one weak, but to tell one's sorrows to Him who heareth in secret, makes one strong and calm. Tholuck

I have a new Award

Thank you Carol
I am going to pass this on to:

Quaint Place's To Visit

Yesterday The Bennie wanted some mud bugs ( Cajun Crawfish). So we told Frank we would check this place out. This is a town 15 miles from us call Paragould Ar, They were open but the Cafe was not. They get there crawfish in on Friday but it didn't come in so they were closed. Now get a grip, the sign said open and they sell fish. On the way back I saw this. So funny on the sign it has a picture of a jail bird looking out of bars.
Has this bondsman got a since of humor or what?

Words Of Cheer

I need some words of cheer this morning.
Don't worry, Let us be of good cheer remembering that the misfortunes hardest to bear are those which never come. By Lowell
Your time is far too brief --For cruel act or words that sting, For worthless grief --At Fortune's slight.--Let your Heart sing!--'Twill soon be night.--Your days are far too few --For faulty wish, or deed, that bring--No happiness to you.--Keep your shield bright,--With Honour ring!--'Twill soon be night.

More Love

If you'd like to know the love of God the Father, Come to Him through Jesus Christ, His loving Son; He'll forgive your sins and save your soul forever, And you'll love forevermore this faithful One. By Felten In Our Daily Bread

Love much, There is no waste in freely giving;

More blessed is it, even, than to receive.

He who loves much, alone finds life worth living;

Love on through doubt and darkness; and believe

There is no thing which Love may not achieve.

By Ella Wheeler Wilcox

He Knows The Way

There is a guide that never falters, And when He leads I cannot stray, For step by step He goes before me, And marks my path, He knows the way. Oft-times the path grows dim and dreary, The darkness hides the cheering ray, Still I will trust, tho' worn and weary, My Savior leads, He knows the way. He knows the evils that surround me, The turnings that would lead astray, No foes of night can ere confound me, For Jesus leads, He knows the way. By A.B. Ackley From Streams in the Desert
