Hello from Barbara's Entourage!

Sometimes, there's a language barrier between me and what I truly want to say. Can you say, "Cat got your tongue"? Or perhaps, "devil in the works"? I'm never at a loss for words, but perhaps a loss of what to say at particular times.

I've always wanted to be a fluent speaker or writer. But, at the times I need it most, my words leave me! Could be a blessing, or perhaps a curse! I like to look upon it as a 'momentarily lapse of memory'. I say that because scripture says, 'the memory of the just is blessed.' Proverbs 10:7 I certainly receive that!

So, next time the enemy tries to tell you that you have a bad memory, tell him to get lost, for you are certainly blessed!


Faith Is Rest

"Faith is rest, not toil. It is the giving up all the former weary efforts to do or feel something good, in order to induce God to love and pardon; and the calm reception of the truth so long rejected, that God is not waiting for any such inducements, but loves and pardons of His own goodwill, and is showing that goodwill to any sinner who will come to Him on such a footing, casting away his own poor performances or goodnesses, and relying implicitly upon the free love of Him who so loved the world that He gave His only-begotten Son."
- Horatius Bonar (1808-1889)

Old Leaf

A little boy opened the big family Bible. He was fascinated as he fingered through the old ages. Suddenly something fell out of the Bible. He picked up the object and looked at it closely. What he saw was an old leaf that had been pressed in between the pages. "Mamma, look what I found," the boy called out. "What have you got there, dear?" his mother asked. With astonishment in the young boy's voice, he answered: "I think it's Adam's underwear."

When you sometimes find in books advice or example that you think may be of service, you take care to copy and consult it as an oracle. Do as much for the good of your soul. Engrave in your memory, and even write down, the counsels and precepts that you hear or read; . . . then, from time to time study this little collection, which you will not prize the less that you have made it all yourself.

Books written by others in time become wearisome to us, but of those we write ourselves,we never tire. And it will be yours, this collection of thoughts chosen because you liked them; counsels you have given yourself; moral receipts you have discovered, and of which, perhaps, you have proved the efficacy.

Happy soul! that each day reaps its harvest.

By Charlotte M. Yonge - 1880
