Hello from Barbara's Entourage

Outside, the storms are still raging - lightning lighting up the skies, and thunder sounding very close by. But, here, within the house, it's comfortable, safe from the rain outside.

There are many tonight who are not as comfortable, unable to get out of the 'storms of life', and into the safety of the arms of God. They are afraid to 'let go and let God' in every facet of their lives, leaving them vulnerable to the attacks of the enemy. And, the enemy is surely going to attack anyone that is not under the protection of the Almighty.

Are you one of those that hasn't completely surrendered your life to the Lord? Are you worried about your 'world' - your family, your health, your finances, your job? Perhaps you are plagued with depression, worries, or dysfunction in your family. I know one who can get you through the every day problems, over the hurdles in your personal life, and on the road to Spiritual renewal. His name is Jesus. He's longing to hear from you. Why not give Him a 'call' - the heavenly telephone line is always open!

Psalms 50:15 And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.

The thoughtless word, the cutting remark, the boorish act, the unreasonable demand, the unnecessary complaint can easily make a great part of the day miserable for someone.

Black and White
For older folks only - (Under 40? You won't understand.)

You could hardly see for all the snow,
Spread the rabbit ears as far as they go.
Pull a chair up to the TV set,
"Good night, David; Good night, Chet."

Dependin' on the channel you tuned
You got Rob and Laura - or Ward and June.
It felt so good, felt so right.
Life looked better in black and white.

I Love Lucy, The Real McCoys
Dennis the Menace, the Cleaver boys
Rawhide, Gunsmoke, Wagon Train
Superman, Jimmy & Lois Lane.

Father Knows Best, Patty Duke
Rin Tin Tin and Lassie too,
Donna Reed on Thursday night--
Life looked better in black and white.

I wanna go back to black and white.
Everything always turned out right.
Simple people, simple lives
Good guys always won the fights.

Now nothin is the way it seems
In living color on the TV screen.
Too many murders, too much fight,
I wanna go back to black and white.

In God they trusted, in bed they slept.
A promise made was a promise kept.
They never cussed or broke their vows.
They'd never make the network now.

But if I could, I'd rather be
In a TV town in '53.
It felt so good, felt so right
Life looked better in black and white.

I'd trade all the channels on the satellite
If I could just turn back the clock tonight
To when everybody knew wrong from right
Life was better in black and white.

A word or two from ......

Charisma News

Too many American churches are busy doing everything but that which is most important -- sharing the gospel -- says long-time evangelist Scott Hinkle. The Phoenix, Ariz.-based speaker and outreach leader is alarmed by the "growing population of Johnnys who are ready to do anything but the one thing that Jesus asked of us."

"Lean on Me, for I am Meek and Lowly of Heart"

Be Humble
1. Humble with God

Each has received the mission (without knowing it) to make you holy; one by subduing your independence, another by crushing your pride, a third by spurring your slothfulness.

They will, though fulfilling God's command, do it each in his own way, sometimes roughly, sometimes maliciously, sometimes in a way hard to bear . . . what does it matter, so long as you feel that all you do, all you suffer, is the will of God?

Do your duty a well as you can, as you understand it, as it is given to you; say sometimes to God, "My Master, art Thou satisfied with me?" and then, in spite of ennui, fatigue, repugnance, go on with it faithfully to the end.

Then, whether praise or blame be yours, you will, good faithful servant, at least have peace.

By Charlotte M. Yonge - 1880

That's a Roundup from Barbara's Entourage for this week.
"Head knowledge makes you smart; heart knowledge makes you HIS!"



Psalms 16:11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
