Single guys –

she may be cute. Is she kind? She may be attractive in face or form. Does she have a pleasing personality? She may come from good “roots” but has she determined that SHE will be all God’s, at any cost? Looks/bodies/hair tend toward decreased attractiveness. Hopefully kindness and a loving personality, as she walks with Christ, will increase. And if/when God grants you children, her love for Jesus and her pleasantness you may see reflected in one or more of them. [Gals, read this opposite for you, please.]

Time Well Spent


Being a dad is far more indeed,

Than the mere contribution of a small seed.

Hours, weeks, & years are needed to train a tree;

Not so, the weed.

Don’t spend your life removing dust,

It simply falls again.

Spend it – turning daughters into ladies,

And sons into stalwart men.

(“to be,” this season’s “crop,” or a groom for yrs.) – Want to make your bride happy and your marriage a success in God’s sight? Become/remain a devout follower of Jesus Christ and seek/find a holy heart. Human love can wear thin in the struggles/trials/disagreements of life. God has provided that you, groom, can have a pure heart. She’ll be a happier wife if you not only love her but if you love God MORE. [ Bride, read opposite for you, please.]

“Our Father…”

As I tried to pray in the night my mind wanted to wander. I asked the Lord to forgive me for my mouth “mouthing” words but my brain seeking to run “rabbit trails.” After some struggle I started praying the Lord’s Prayer (Mat 6.9ff). “…Our Father…” was rich and comforting. And other parts, as I was able to bring my mind to His example prayer. Thank God for His help – I need His help even when I pray to Him.
