TOP OF THE MANTLE

Hello from Barbara's Entourage

Stay Ready!

'Stay ready to go, for today may be your last'. Those are words we don't like to hear, but they are true. None of us are guaranteed another day of life on this earth as we know it. It could be an accident that takes your life, or you may have a terminal disease, and the doctor tells you that you don't have long to live, or God may just call you home. Whatever it is that causes you to lose your life, it pays to stay ready to go. We will meet our maker in one form or another - either ready to live with Him eternally, or we'll be spending eternity in hell - bluntly said, but true.

Today, we said our last goodbye's to a cousin. He had been sick for several years. Yet, during all those years, and so many years before, he stayed ready. He kept the 'oil in his lamp' full. He was the most pleasant person you would ever want to meet, always a smile on his face, and a 'secret' in his hand. The little children loved to see him coming, for they knew he'd slip them a 'secret' into their hands (usually a one dollar bill) and tell them not to tell their brothers or sisters. And, then, he'd do the same to the brothers and sisters. He loved to help people; this was just his God-given nature. And, he lived it to the fullest.

Until the day he died, he prayed. In fact, just a little while before he died, he asked his wife to pray with him, to which he responded that he felt better. He was staying ready for his destiny with the Lord.

Matthew 25:13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

'THIS AND THAT' ...
Joy, Humor, and Faith on the net!

I'm reminded of the story of when Ole moved up north. He discovered that he was the only Lutheran in his new little town of all Catholics. That was okay, but the neighbors had a problem with his barbecuing venison every Friday during the Lenten season, for it was torture for them. Since they couldn't eat meat on Friday, the tempting aroma was getting the best of them. Hoping they could do something to stop this, the neighbors got together and went over to talk to Ole, eventually persuading him to join their church.

The big day came and the priest had Ole kneel. He put his hand on Ole's head and said, "Ole, you were born a Lutheran, you were raised a Lutheran,> and now," he said as he sprinkled some incense over Ole's head, "now you are a Catholic!"

Ole was happy and the neighbors were happy. But the following Friday evening at suppertime, there was again that aroma of grilled deer steaks coming from Ole's yard. The neighbors went to talk to him about this and as they approached the fence, they heard Ole saying: "You were born a whitetail, you were raised a whitetail, and now," he said as he sprinkled seasoning salt over the choice tenderloin cut, "now you are a trout!" .

SNIPPET FROM THE MANTLE
A word or two from ......

Maranatha Christian Journal

A West Palm Beach, Fla., judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed against the nation's largest Messianic Jewish organization that arose out of "a praise report" in a Jews for Jesus (JfJ) newsletter. Last week, Circuit Court Judge Catherine Brunson threw out the suit by Edith Rapp, who claimed that Jews for Jesus defamed her by claiming that she was a "Jewish believer."

GOD IS IN THE SMALL STUFF - From The Mantle

God Wants You (To Grow)

Faith does not demand miracles, but often accomplishes them.

It's a good thing to delight in the Lord, but how much better when the Lord delights in you.

HIS ENCOURAGING WORD...

Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
