Whisper of God

Thought for the Day: “There are times that we are confronted with obstacles so big that it seems only God could move them out of our way. When that happens rely on Him. He will either move them out of your way or show you another way around. Just keep your eyes, ears, and heart open because His intervention usually comes when and where you might least expect it.” Have an awesome day today my friends!– Elmer Laydon

Happy Thanksgiving!

For flowers that bloom about our feet,

For tender grass so fresh and sweet,

For the song of bird and hum of bee,

For all things fair we hear or see,

Father in heaven, we thank Thee.

For blue of stream and blue of sky,

For pleasant shade of branches high,

For fragrant air and cooling breeze,

For beauty of the blooming trees,

Father in heaven we thank Thee.

For this new morning with its light,

For rest and shelter of the night,

For health and food, for love and friends,

For everything Thy goodness sends,

Father in heaven, we thank Thee.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1803-1882

Whisper of God

Thought for the Day: “It’s easy to live like a child of God for the hour or two that we might attend church services each week. The real challenge is living in His Word 24/7. No one said it would be easy but God did say He would be with us as we tried to walk the narrow path that He has shown us.” I hope you have a miraculous day today my friends! – Elmer Laydon

Whisper of God

Thought for the Day: “There are times when the stress of daily life can cause anxiety to wash over you like waves over a ship in a stormy sea. Don’t let those waves push you away from God. Place your trust in Him and He will make you as steadfast as a rock in the face of anything.” I hope you have an amazing day today my friends! – Elmer Laydon

Wisdom Shared

"There is so much about my fate that I cannot control, but other things do fall under my jurisdiction. I can decide how I spend my time, whom I interact with, whom I share my body and life and money and energy with. I can select what I can read and eat and study. I can choose how I'm going to regard unfortunate circumstances in my life - whether I will see them as curses or opportunities. I can choose my words and the tone of voice in which I speak to others. And most of all, I can choose my thoughts."

Elizabeth Gilbert

American Novelist and Short Story Writer

Every Vote Counts

"I contend that for a nation to try to tax
itself into prosperity is like a man standing
in a bucket and trying to lift himself by
the handle."
Winston Churchill
