I give thanks to GOD for my friend and colleague Pastor Babar Kamran and his lovely wife, as they work tirelessly to plant churches for Christ in Pakistan. It is often dangerous. Pray for their children and other family members. Pray for their health and for the LORD to supply all their needs, plus the materials to build and to spread the Gospel. Please keep their safety and well-being in your daily prayers... and pray the LORD of the Harvest to send more workers, Amen! Remember His marvelous works which He has done, His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth, O seed of Abraham His servant, You children of Jacob, His chosen ones! He is the Lord our God; His judgments are in all the earth. He remembers His covenant forever, The word which He commanded, for a thousand generations , Every morning tell Him, "Thank You for Your kindness," and every evening rejoice in His faithfulness. Psalm 92: 2 TLB Bless the LORD, O my soul, And everything within me, Bless His holy name! Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all of His benefits; which He heaps upon us daily.. Who pardons all our iniquities, Who heals all our diseases, Who delivers our soul from destruction, then crowns us with His loving kindness and tender mercies,, Who fills our mouth with good things and restores our youth. Psalm 103:2-3 JournaL Autumn Surprise The hillside crackles beneath his cautious hunting boots. Might it be The one !? The pack of arrows he carries on his back is not the only quiver. The chilled wind rises in conflict with the bright afternoon sun. The distinct aroma Of pine and wood smoke fills his lungs. Along the trail vibrant red and bold orange hues are tucked deep inside the forest. The sheer magnificence of a Pennsylvania Autumn is beyond words and just takes his breath away! Then the sound of another's cautious footsteps grows closer.. His eyes widen His ears on high alert His mind honed His body tensed He feels it in his bones. With one hand he carries the bow with the arrow in place balanced between a thumb and two fingers. Heart pounding senses straining he reaches for the tall dried brush and quietly stomps it down so he might have venison for his supper... Holding his breath he rapidly retreats three paces and pulls back his mighty bow... Then out walks a large stray cat! Who’s hunting for his lost supper, too. Bummer. This isn't what he planned for his wife's Autumn Surprise. © 10/26/2017 Rhonda S Galizia International Copyright All Rights Reserved By Law. A Brief Testimony Scarred and blank A deserted hillside But what! A single flower grew Its petals soft and white Reflecting the Light Inside the morning dew. By those precious Life-giving drops That flower continued to be Until the day It withered away Leaving behind A brief testimony. Might we now mark Our own days in deference To truly making A worthy difference Be it by land or by the sea.. Let it be written In our own brief testimony. Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God's work from beginning to end.
