Hello from Barbara's Entourage!

The earthquake in Washington state this week could have been worse, they have been reporting on the news. But, they had been prepared moreso than for others. Structural changes had been made to keep buildings from under going so much damage. The people were prepared and knew what to do when the earth began to rumble.

Being prepared should be an every day thing with all of us, not just for earthquakes. It doesn't take an earthquake to shake you up. They say that most car accidents happen within twenty five miles of our homes. And, we aren't assured of coming out alive, although they have put in air bags and seat belts. Things happen in life beyond our control, and we need to have our lives in order, just in case it catches us at our lowest vulnerability.

You hear about _prevention medicine_. Salvation is the prevention medicine that we all should have, for that full assurance, that if we didn't make it out of an earthquake or some other disaster, that we will wake up on the other side with GOD.

How To Be Prepared for Christ's Return


2 Thessalonians 1:10 When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.

Food From Barbara's Table

From the interlaced forever, webbed with sin,
My God can lift me and can cleanse me within.
The weight of a burdened heart, He will release,
For me to dwell again in love and peace.
From sinful tight trappings, I am now set free.
For me are the treasures of eternity!

From 'Promise of the Bud' - Author Katherine Hale Halin

The most extraordinary thing about the oyster is this: irritations get into his shell . . . . And when he cannot get rid of them, he uses the irritations to do the loveliest thing an oyster ever has the chance to do. If there are irritations in our lives today, there is only prescription: make a pearl . . . . And it takes faith and love to do it. --Harry Emerson Fosdick

A new pastor moved into a town, and he went out one day to visit his parishioners. All went well until he came upon this one house. It was obvious that someone was home, but no one came to the door even after he had knocked several times. Finally he took out his card, wrote on the back "Revelation 3:20" and stuck it on the back of the door. Revelation 3:20: "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will dine with him, and he with me."

Later in the week, as he was counting the offering, he found his card in the collection plate. Below his message was the notation "Genesis 3:10."

Genesis 3:10: "And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked: so I hid myself."



Only in America...can a pizza get to your house faster than an ambulance.

Only in America...do drug stores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions filled while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.

Only in America...do banks leave both doors wide-open and then chain pens to the counter.

Only in America...do we leave our cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage.

Only in America...do we use answering machines to screen calls and then have call waiting so we don't miss a call from someone we didn't want to talk to in the first place.

Only in America...do we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns for them in packages of eight.

Only in America...do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries and a DIET Coke.

To learn never to waste our time is perhaps one of the most difficult virtues to acquire.

A well-spent day is a source of pleasure. To be constantly employed, and never asking, "What shall I do?" is the secret of much goodness and happiness.

Begin, then, with promptitude, act decisively, persevere; if interrupted, be amiable, and return to the work unruffled, finish it carefully--these will be the signs of a virtuous soul.

By Charlotte M. Yonge - 1880
