God is at the window.....

There was a little boy visiting his grandparents on their farm. He was given a slingshot to play with out in the woods. He practiced in the woods; but he could never hit the target. Getting a little discouraged, he headed back for dinner. As he was walking back he saw Grandma's pet duck. Just out of impulse, he let the slingshot fly, hit the duck square in the head and killed it. He was shocked and grieved! In a panic, he hid the dead duck in the wood pile; only to see his sister watching! Sally had seen it all, but she said nothing After lunch the next day Grandma said, "Sally, let's wash the dishes" But Sally said, "Grandma, Johnny told me he wanted to help in the kitchen."
Then she whispered to him, "Remember the duck?" So Johnny did the dishes. Later that day, Grandpa asked if the children wanted to go fishing and Grandma said, "I'm sorry but I need Sally to help make supper." Sally just smiled and said, "Well that's all right because Johnny told me he wanted to help" She whispered again, "Remember the duck?" So Sally went fishing and Johnny stayed to h elp. After several days of Johnny doing both his chores and Sally's; he finally couldn't stand it any longer. He came to Grandma and confessed that he had killed the duck. Grandma knelt down, gave him a hug and said, "Sweetheart, I know. You see, I was standing at the window and I saw the whole thing, but because I love you, I forgave you. I was just wondering how long you would let Sally make a slave of you." Thought for the day and every day thereafter? Whatever is in your past, whatever you have done... and the devil keeps throwing it up in your face (lying, cheating, debt, fear, bad habits, hatred, anger, bitterness, etc.)...whatever it is...You need to know that God was standing at the window and He saw the whole thing. He has seen your whole life. He wants you to know that He loves you and that you are forgiven. He's just wondering how long you will let the devil make a slave of you. The great thing about God is that when you ask for forgiveness; He not only forgives you, but He forgets. It is by God's grace and mercy that we are saved. Go ahead and make the difference in someone's life today. Share this with a friend and always remember: God is at the window! When Jesus died on the cross; he was thinking of you! If you are one of the 93 % who will stand up for him forward this with the title, "I'm in the 93%" Would you believe 7% of people won't forward this?

my church attendance

11 March 2007
I dont feel that this means that my attendance at church is slacking or that I am moving the wrong direction. I just feel that although a good church too many changes have taken place that have made it a bit of a yawn going.

Now i have a 18 month old who is very lively and active. When at church he makes occasional noise etc. I cant afford to pay so much money in travelling cost to go church only to miss most of the service. There is nothing to cater for babies so what else can i do. I love church but didnt go today simply because i noticed that a female camera person was tutting when my son was making noise.

These days I always notice the stewards jumping down parents neck or interfering. It may be church but I am not going to leave my child with anyone.

One lady did suggest a creche with parents rotating to take part

Ok so I am venting but i have no choice. When he is older it wont be a problem as his understanding of sit down quietly will be already learned

I must contact pastor and see if there is a way i can have church at home for weeks when i dont go or just see if I have taken this wrongly

Praying for a stronger faith


10 February 2007
I must admit dreams are very powerful. Some of my dreams are so intense i have to wake up and take a deep breath.

Recently i had a dream about a statue that held meaning. It was covered up, however when revealed it started doing crazy things.

I found myself kneeling down on my knees weeping and crying out to the Lord saying ''my Lord my Lord''. A feeling unknown to me. I prayed before i closed my eyes again and said Jesus please give me a peaceful sleep.

Dont know what to make of it though

One thing for sure I know have cried out well rather reached out to the Lord in previous dreams.

Blessed Happy New Year 2007

1 January 2007
For the first time in my life i saw in new years day in church. It was wonderful. Church was full pact of life and the spirit of the Lord was truly present. What better way to spend it. Years gone by i used to just go out get drunk and think about stuff. Of course i havent done so in a while as I have my son.

One lady spoke of forgetting the problems of 2006. 2007 will be ushering in a new phase a new era.

I thank Jesus for getting me here. I know my faith has been weak and waivering at times....but He has kept me near. Kept me going.

I am very cautious at times because I would like ot think that I can reach out to God in good times and in Bad. Need to develop that relationship a bit more but i am getting there.

I'm still reading the Bible via a chronoligical reading plan. Soon I hope I will be able to attend Bible study. Because i need that deeper understanding

My Bible collection has now grown. A free raffle at church with a pop quiz...i was given the answer by the congregation, thankfully. Its the New century Version. I have never come across this version. Read slightly like the Good News version. I guess with all these Bibles and verses I will need to do some cross referencing.

Its funny that my number was called in church. Me and my friend were pondering if one of ours would be. I actually had a mini conversation with my Lord and said "i prefer not to be called because there are questions etc etc..." I guess he felt differently.

I can only take it as God is trying to tell me something. He does listen and He does hear me. Now i need to move on over to the next level

I pray that everyone in the world is blessed in 2007. That we start to fulfill our purpose in life. With Jesus everything is possible I truly believe this.

Stay blessed!!
