THE TEST OF FAITH DEVELOPES PERSEVERANCE
I am humbled and honored to have such beautiful angels such as you for friends.
God sent you to me and I pray to you to encourage and pray for each other. I pray we never lose this love and always keep in touch. Your love is divinely inspired and my heartfelt thanks for you to God. Love and prayers and blessings from me to you always! JJ:)
I could not be any closer to my FLickr friends than if they were related to me by birth.You are my brothers and sisters in love and in Christ.
We share our lives, our hopes, our love and our photos. We share a common bond that goes way beyond anything offered on line. But, God, in His infinite mercy and wisdom has made a place where we could meet.
I would never know you were it not for the internet and Flickr: Chris, Carole, Nancy, Simone, Sylvia, Vivian, Ron, Jim, Fred, Joan, Joy, Ed, John, and so many others.
I cannot possible express my love for you in words. All I can do is keep you all in my prayers. I do not deserve all this attention. but I hope to use it to keep telling others about the undeserved love from God! The precious, unending, sacrificial love that gave me the peace that passes all human understanding. Jesus’ life, death and resurrection is my greatest joy of all. Because of HIM, I have been blessed with people angels. I pray for each of you every day for health, well beiing, healing in sickness and guidance in troubled times. REMEMBER, NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR HIM!
You, my friends are Love personified. God gave us a light and we share the light, not diminishing our own light, but enriching it. Making our light together the bright light of GOD’s LOVE!
Thank you angel friends! God bless and keep you forever, and give you healing and peace. This is the best birthday yet! Because of those love of those who give so much. God bless all of you! Love, JJ
Sure, there was groaning and frustration and a chorus of “Why didn’t we check the flight status before we left?”, but it has settled down and there is a quiet calm about the area. Restaurants and gift shops are slowly beginning to pack up for the day, and people are scattered around the pink plastic cushions overlooking the runway. Occasionally, other passengers walk by on their way to their gate, which will board on time. I watch all of this with interested eyes. Yes, we are delayed, but we are patient. We have to be. There’s nothing we can do about the situation, and eventually, when the time is right, our plane will arrive and we’ll be on our merry way.
We are human. We have short attention spans and even shorter tempers. God is God. He sees forever, knows our actions caused by our tempers, and loves us nonetheless. He is patient, watching us flail and flop on our own. When we’ve finally exhausted all of our options for personal satisfaction, His arms are waiting for us to run into them. And when our weary limbs are rested in His mighty embrace, He kisses our face, looks straight in our eyes, and, with a sweet smile, says, “You were worth the wait.”
bible verses about sisters
OUR freeloaders are professionals. They’re subtle. They’re versatile. They run complicated scams and convoluted cons on us. They always have their antennae up for any little clue they might find useful. Like the predators they are, they’re constantly sizing us up to see what they can get out of us. They’re looking for personality traits they can use against us, like gullibility, kindness, a trusting nature, or a soft heart. Even our pride is useful to them-because then they can employ flattery, or “gratitude,” to get what they want.
If you’re susceptible to guilt, it makes you an easy target. If you’re a sympathetic person, quick to feel sorry for those who are going through tough times, or if you easily empathize with others, then you’re an even better target. If you’re concerned about other people’s opinions and want everybody to think you’re nice, that’s like a flashing neon “Sucker” sign over your head. To a con man, if you have trouble saying “No,” that’s a sign of weakness which he can exploit. If we’re efficient, or pride ourselves on being “problem-solvers,” then the freeloader will give us a problem to solve for him. If we have a “rescuer” mentality, our freeloader will help us satisfy those urges. Freeloaders and con men are looking for “people pleasers.”
Is it important to you to give others the impression that you’re a “good Christian?” Or to prove to YOURSELF that you’re a good Christian? We presume that “good” Christians give to charity, but how do you define “charity?” Do you think you have to give to every hard luck case who asks? Does your chronically unemployed cousin qualify as a legitimate charity cause in your mind? Would it make you a “bad” Christian to say “No” to the sister-in-law who constantly imposes on you? If you equate agreeing to every request anybody ever asks of you, or giving money to every person who seems to need it, with being a “good” Christian, then once a freeloader gets a hold of you, you’re in for a long night……..
Written with humor, wisdom, and a healthy dose of common sense, The Family Freeloader teaches us 21 Ways To Spot A Con, the various ploys that freeloaders use to scam money or favors out of us, how they observe and test us, and which personality traits make us seem like easy prey. We will systematically debunk their most common sob stories and surprisingly sneaky tactics, study what the Bible REALLY says about giving to the poor vs. supporting a bum, and learn step-by-step effective strategies for letting go of the guilt and saying “No” to our family freeloaders. This book is an invaluable lesson for all kind-hearted, generous folks who love their families, on how to avoid being taken advantage of by the unscrupulous among us.
