Hello from Barbara's Entourage!

This week, we have the Valentine holiday coming up. Many are blessed to have spouses, boyfriends, or girlfriends with which they will exchange cards or gifts to show their love and appreciation. But, there are many out there hurting, because there will be no valentine, no candy, or gift coming - there is no friend or spouse that will remember this day for them. So, they feel let down, out of place, and perhaps offended by the very mention of Valentine's Day.

What can we, as Christians, do in order to help these people through a difficult time in their lives? I am sure each of us can recall a time when we didn't have a person to depend on during this holiday season. And, I am sure we know at least one person who has no spouse - perhaps their spouse has gone on before them, and they are living alone. Why not make it a better day for that person that you know - give him or her a special valentine, a call on the phone, or perhaps a box of candy or a flower to let them know that they are loved. They will be blessed by your kindness, and you will be blessed by God.


Psalms 41:1 Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble.

If you yelled for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days you would have produced enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee (Hardly seems worth it)

From Sharon Lambkin
Publisher e4u Newsletter


A young boy had just gotten his driving permit. He asked his father, who was a minister, if they could discuss the use of the car. His father took him to his study and said to him, "I'll make a deal with you. You bring your grades up, study your Bible a little and get your hair cut and we'll talk about it."

After about a month the boy came back and again asked his father if they could discuss use of the car. They again went to the father's study where his father said, "Son, I've been real proud of you. You have brought your grades up, you've studied your bible diligently, but you didn't get your hair cut!"

The young man waited and minute and replied, "You know Dad, I've been thinking about that. You know, Samson had long hair, Moses had long hair, why even Jesus had long hair...."

To which his father replied...."Yes, and they WALKED everywhere they went!"

Forgive Us Our Trespasses, As We Forgive Them that Trespass Against Us

When I pronounce the word of pardon, what a weight seems lifted from my heart.

I will not only banish every feeling of hatred, I will efface every painful remembrance. O God, if Thou forgivest me, as I forgive others, what mercy for me!

Thou seest I bear no malice, that I forget all injuries.

I have been offended by words. I forget them; by actions, I forget them; by omissions, thoughts, desires; they are all forgotten.

Ah! in all these ways I have offended Thee, and Thou wilt forget, even as I have forgotten.

I will be very merciful, so that Thou mayst have mercy upon me.

By Charlotte M. Yonge - 1880
