be better!

Passing along a little ditty which appeared in our Church bulletin recently.

As Father encouraged us – these are all important points to reflect upon.

I know several certainly gave me great pause and self-examination.

Are there any you need to address in your life?

It’s Strange

It’s strange how twenty dollars seems like such a large amount when you donate it to church, but such a small amount when you go shopping.

It’s strange how 2 hours seem so long when you’re at church, and how short they seem when you’re watching a movie.

It’s strange that you can’t find words to say when you’re praying, but you have no trouble thinking what to talk about with a friend.

It’s strange how difficult it is to read one chapter of the Bible, but how easy it is to read a popular novel.

It’s strange how everyone wants front-row-tickets to concerts, but they want to sit in the last row at Church.

It’s strange how we need to know about an event for Church 2-3 weeks before the day so we can include it in our agenda, but we can adjust it for other events in the last minute.

It’s strange how difficult it is to learn a fact about God and share it with others, but it’s easy to repeat gossip.

It’s strange how we believe everything that magazines and newspapers say, but we question the words in the Bible.

hugs n’ blessings for all those seeking to be and do better.

Better

by JJ Heller

Your smile, plays like a movie in my mind.
Feels like, you’ve always been here in my life.
Your voice is like a song, I can’t forget you.
And I never want to let you go –
I just want to let you know.

You make me laugh a little louder.
You make me dream a little bigger.
My life is so much sweeter
‘Cause you make me –
you make me better.

We hold so many mem’ries in our hearts.
So close – even if we are far apart.
Standing, on the edge of new beginnings.
I can’t wait to see just what you’ll do
and every time I think of you.
