THIS WAY

Be kind and merciful. Let no one ever come to you without coming away better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting.

Mother Teresa

A simple statement to live by: I think I have failed this many times......... but it is always a goal to strive for.......to live as Christ would have us live...........so that others will go away better than when they came.

Have a blessed weekend girls!

It is amazing how easy this is to do with those outside of our families.
But as Mom says, you are who you are at home.
Let's just say He still has some work to do on me. :)
Hope you are doing great and that you have a GREAT weekend.

Hey, I'm behind on my blog reading so I'm playing catch up today. This is good news about your mom. Make sure she is eating nutrious foods. I read somewhere that doing word puzzles helps us keep our brains active. I don't like crossword puzzles but love those find the word puzzles. Grace and blessings to you.

Hi, Thanks for your visit. Donetta over at A Life Uncommon had a prayer request for Shortybear today so after I read your comment I went back over there to see if she got her on the phone and she did and I copied and pasted what she posted.



Has anyone heard from Denise "shorty bear"?

I am speaking on the phone to her now.
She said " I love you all and miss you all very all very much."


She also said " That she very much appreciate their love and their prayers."
Denise lost her computer on Saturday night. Then in the middle of the night she fell ill.
Eddie took her to the E.R. She was suffering from the flu and was on the verge of pneumonia. They kept her in the hospital until Tuesday .

She is home now with a fever , but is feeling better. She said to leave any comments for her here and I will call her to deliver them to her.
She is awaiting her computer to be fixed or replaced


So that is where she has been NO computer and very ill. I knew something was wrong because she doesn't go that long with out posting.
Thanks for your prayers for Nancy and me I really appreciate it! Love and hugs Grams

Denise,

I have also failed in this many times over the years. Thanks for the inspiration. I will ask forgiveness and strive to do better. I always enjoy your lessons and have learned a lot from you, my friend.

I have not heard from Denise at Shorty Bear's Place. I have her email and will send her a note. In the meantime I'll pray for her.

Blessings,
Mary

Hey saw your comment over at Marys...I posted about Denise a couple of days ago.
She is doing fine now...evidently she is still having computer problems.

Hootin' Anni said...

I saw your question in Mary's blog about Denise and was wondering the same thing...hope she's okay, but maybe she's still having computer problems.

Have a great Sunday.

Kindness & mercy - something we all stand in need of...

I've failed so many times and need the Lord working in me to be His expression of genuine kindness and love. But you do this well, my friend, and your words are always full of mercy and goodness.

love ya,
V.
