Did you know

Tonight as I was sitting on the couch with Carson he looked at me and said
 "Mommy did you know Jesus is the King?  He made each star and makes the moon shine."

A doctor entered the hospital in hurry after being called in for an urgent surgery. He answered the call asap, changed his clothes & went directly to the surgery block. He found the boy’s father pacing in the hall waiting for the doctor. On seeing him, the dad yelled:
“Why did U take all this time to come? Don’t U know that my son’s life is in danger? Don’t U have any sense of responsibility?”

The doctor smiled & said:
“I am sorry, I wasn’t in the hospital & I came as fast as I could after receiving the call…… And now, I wish you’d calm down so that I can do my work”

“Calm down?! What if your son was in this room right now, would U calm down? If your own son dies now what will U do??” said the father angrily

The doctor smiled again & replied: “I will say what Job said in the Holy Book “From dust we came & to dust we return, blessed be the name of God”. Doctors cannot prolong lives. Go & intercede for your son, we will do our best by God’s grace”

“Giving advises when we’re not concerned is so easy” Murmured the father.

The surgery took some hours after which the doctor went out happy,
“Thank goodness!, your son is saved!” And without waiting for the father’s reply he carried on his way running. “If U have any question, ask the nurse!!”

“Why is he so arrogant? He couldn’t wait some minutes so that I ask about my son’s state” Commented the father when seeing the nurse minutes after the doctor left.

The nurse answered, tears coming down her face: “His son died yesterday in a road accident, he was in the burial when we called him for your son’s surgery. And now that he saved your son’s life, he left running to finish his son’s burial.”

Moral-Never judge anyone….. because U never know how their life is & what they’re going through”

People need the Lord

We all need the Lord.  We all need to have a relationship with our maker.  We all need to be prepared to meet him one day.  The Lord loves you.  He wants a relationship with you.  He wants you to talk with him.  He knows your heart so share your dreams.  He is waiting for you.

Everyday they pass me by,
I can see it in their eye.
Empty people filled with care,
Headed who knows where?
On they go through private pain,
Living fear to fear.
Laughter hides their silent cries,
Only Jesus hears.
People need the Lord, people need the Lord.
At the end of broken dreams, He's the open door.
People need the Lord, people need the Lord.
When will we realize --people need the Lord?
We are called to take His light
To a world where wrong seems right.
What would be too great a cost
For sharing life with one who's lost?
Through His love our hearts can feel
All the grief they bear.
They must hear the words of life
Only we can share.
People need the Lord, people need the Lord
At the end of broken dreams, He's the open door.
People need the Lord, people need the Lord.
When will we realize that we must give our lives,
For people need the Lord.
People need the Lord.

an hour alone time after the baby went to bed.

Tonight I enjoyed an hour bike ride alone.  I loved every minute of it.  I sang as loud as I could while listening to the ipod.  I had a great conversation with the Lord.  And I returned back to my house with a new attitude.

summer time fun

Carson is such a fish.  He will stay in the pool all day.  After his four hour swim he enjoyed some corn on the cob out of my dad's garden.  yummy!  Cinderlla was loving the pool as well.

blink of an eye

In a blink we are home. I opened my luggage yesterday and the smells of Guatemala flowed out of my bag. Can't forget those odors of the streets, cement, air and the people. What an amazing mission trip.
