TOP OF THE MANTLE

Hello from Barbara's Entourage

My Cup Runneth Over

There are many out there who have a 'plate full'; in other words, they have more than their share of the bad things of life. Those families of South East Asia who were hit by the tsunami surely have their plates full - more than enough to last them for a life time. So many have lost loved ones, whole families, and neighbors, not to mention all their life's belongings. In only a few minutes, their lives were forever changed. Lives were swept to sea, homes and businesses vanished, and life would never be the same. Even the landscapes completely changed, with one whole island being swept away.

How would those of us not affected have handled such a tragedy? Would we be able to pick up the pieces and go on living life from day to day? Having only the clothes on our backs, would we come back fighting?

We have so much to be thankful for every day we live. Unlike those that lost their lives in the tsunami floods, we still have our life. We still have the ability to rise each morning, knowing we have a change of clothes, food on the table, and a job to go to. Most of us have a family with which to share the day. Life might not be the best in the world for us, but, at least, we are alive! I don't know about you, but my 'cup runneth over' with blessings from above. Each day I arise and am able to speak, I thank God that He has spared me another day to worship Him, and has given me health for which to praise Him. But by the grace of God, we could have been one of the victims of the tsunami.

Read Psalms 23 - Audio Bible Online http://www.audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html

Psalms 23:5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Joy, Humor, and Faith on the net!

ONE LINERS

1. Give God what's right -- not what's left.
2. Man's way leads to a hopeless end -- God's way leads to an endless hope.
3. A lot of kneeling will keep you in good standing.
4. He who kneels before God can stand before anyone.
5. In the sentence of life, the devil may be a comma--but never let him be the period.
6. Don't put a question mark where God puts a period.
7. Are you wrinkled with burden? Come to the church for a face-lift.
8. When praying, don't give God instructions - just report for duty.
9. Don't wait for six strong men to take you to church.
10. We don't change God's message -- His message changes us.
11. The church is prayer-conditioned.
12. When God ordains, He sustains.
13. WARNING: Exposure to the Son may prevent burning.
14. Plan ahead -- It wasn't raining when Noah built the ark.
15. Most people want to serve God! But only in an advisory position.
16. Suffering from truth decay? Brush up on your Bible.
17. Exercise daily -- walk with the Lord.
18. Never give the devil a ride -- he will always want to drive.
19. Nothing else ruins the truth like stretching it.
20. Compassion is difficult to give away because it keeps coming back.
21. He who angers you controls you.
22. Worry is the darkroom in which negatives can develop.
23. Give Satan an inch & he'll be a ruler.
24. Be ye fishers of men -- you catch them & He'll clean them.
25. God doesn't call the qualified, He qualifies the called...
26. Read the Bible -- It will scare the hell out of you.

GOD IS IN THE SMALL STUFF - From The Mantle

ARRANGE YOUR PRIORITIES - Matthew 6:32-33

*You can start your day without God, but you'll never really get started.

*Don't be so involved with the 'when' that you miss the 'now'.

*Strive to be a person of faith rather than fame.

By Bruce & Stan 2001
