His Word First!

This has seemed for most of the country the winter that will not end. It can be very bleak and depressing to some. Similarly, caring for our aging loved ones can seem bleak and never ending at times. I often encourage caregivers to not neglect reading their Bible DAILY for the support and help needed to cope with every need during the day (and night).

I am in the habit of reading my Bible on my phone before I get out of bed every morning. I recently got a new phone and for three days I did not have my Bible on my new phone. I was surprised how much I missed my morning Bible reading! (Yes, I have a real Bible I could have read, but once I get up the day is “on a roll” and it is hard for me to make the time for sitting and reading.) So, again, I want to encourage everyone to make the time for daily Bible reading. Just as spring is sure to arrive, a better countenance and attitude "will arrive in your heart", if you put His Word first! 

Depression

It is beautiful outside, but you are ‘stuck inside’ or you are too busy ‘surviving’ to enjoy the best weather of the year, (in my opinion – no bugs, however, lots of pollen).  How do you cope with the stress and frustration of your situation?  You don’t!  You embrace it knowing this will not last forever. Make yourself a cup of coffee or tea and sit with your loved one just enjoying the moment. Squeeze every moment from your busy or not so busy life with your loved one and treasure it today

“Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.” (Matthew 6:34)

"In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you." (John 14:2)

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." ( John 14:6)
