Hello from Barbara's Entourage

He's Calling!

For the second time this year, we laid to rest a member of our extended family on Friday. He was the husband of my aunt that died last Spring. The children have seen both their Mom and Dad pass away within seven months of one another - one unexpected and the other expected. But, whether expected or unexpected, the pain is still there. The loss is great for this family, in that there is no longer a Mom and Dad to hold the family unit together.

No matter how strong our faith, our prayer life, or our worshipping Christ, He still calls. The scripture says that it's 'appointed unto men once to die'. When our appointed time comes, no family member will be able to keep them here, no matter how much we want.

When He calls, we will go - whether we go to Him or have made our decision otherwise. There's a heaven and a hell - no in between - no 'place to hide'! We will spend eternity in one of these places. Hopefully, our decision has been made and sealed in His blood, before He Calls!

And, He's Calling - calling each one of us to follow after Him - to come to the Rock of our salvation.

Heavenly Father, we know that there will come a time when we pass from this life unto death. We know there is an eternity beyond this life. Help each one of us realize that, without salvation, it's impossible to spend that eternity with you. We thank you for the gift of grace! In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

The Fragility of Life

The meaning of trial is not only to test worthiness, but to increase it; as the oak is not only tested by the storms, but toughened by them.

A word or two from ......

Maranatha Christian Journal

Evidence of farming by Jews in an area adjacent to the Galileean city of Sepphoris (Zippori) during the period of Roman rule has been uncovered in excavations conducted there under the auspices of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem Institute of Archaeology.

How often, in the presence of one deeply loved, but, alas! estranged from God, the heart of mother or wife has felt a sudden impulse to say an earnest word, propose an act of devotion, to paint in glowing colors the blessings of faith and the happiness of virtue . . . and she has stopped, deterred by an irresistible fear of how the words may be received; and she says to herself, poor woman, "Tomorrow I shall be braver."

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!"



2 Corinthians 6:2(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)
