TOP OF THE MANTLE

Hello from Barbara's Entourage

It's almost school time! I say that because summer has been long and we've been busy. Having four children around the house, after having an empty nest for so long gets tiresome. But the light is about to come through the tunnel - school is about to start.

I used to love to see the time for school to start approaching once more. Every year, it was more exciting. I am sure children are the same today. Summer is fine for a time, but as it goes on and on, from month to month, they get very bored. Ball playing gets too tiresome, the go carts and three-wheelers are a thing of the past, and it's too hot to play outside at all. So school starting is a welcome sign to them.

Many of you are homeschoolers. Come check out some good homeschooling pages on the internet, and perhaps you'll find just what you need for the upcoming session.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

"Perhaps the dominant force in the average life is possessions. Life becomes a scramble for gain instead of a mission for God. We are so busy making a living that we forget to make a life."
(A. P. Gouthey)

HE IS GOD!

He is the First and Last, the Beginning and the End!
He is the keeper of Creation and the Creator of all!
He is the Architect of the universe and the Manager of all times.

He always was, He always is, and He always will be...
Unmoved, unchanged, undefeated and never undone!

He was bruised and brought healing!
He was pierced and eased pain!
He was persecuted and brought freedom!
He was dead and brought life!
He is risen and brings power!
He reigns and brings Peace!

The world can't understand him, the armies can't defeat Him,
The schools can't explain Him, and the leaders can't ignore Him.

Herod couldn't kill Him, the Pharisees couldn't confuse Him,
and the people couldn't hold Him!

Nero couldn't crush Him, Hitler couldn't silence Him,
The New Age can't replace Him, and Donahue can't explain Him away!

He is light, love, longevity, and Lord. He is goodness, kindness, gentleness, and God. He is holy, righteous, mighty, powerful, and pure.

His ways are right, His word is eternal, His will is unchanging, And His mind is on me.

He is my Redeemer, He is my Savior,
He is my guide, and He is my peace!

He is my joy, He is my comfort;
He is my Lord, and He rules my life!

I serve Him because His bond is love, His burden is light, And His goal for me is abundant life.

I follow Him because He is the wisdom of the wise, the power of the powerful, the ancient of days, the ruler of rulers, the leader of leaders, the overseer of the overcomers, And the sovereign Lord of all that was and is and is to come.

And if that seems impressive to you, try this for size.
His goal is a relationship with ME!
He will never leave me, never forsake me, never mislead me, never forget me, never overlook me,
And never cancel my appointment in His appointment book!

When I fall, He lifts me up!
When I fail, He forgives!
When I am weak, He is strong!
When I am lost, He is the way!
When I am afraid, He is my courage!
When I stumble, He steadies me!
When I am hurt, He heals me!
When I am broken, He mends me!
When I am blind, He leads me!
When I am hungry, He feeds me!
When I face trials, He is with me!
When I face persecution, He shields me!
When I face problems, He comforts me!
When I face loss, He provides for me!
When I face Death, He carries me Home!

He is everything for everybody, everywhere, every time, and every way.

He is God, He is faithful. I am His, and He is mine!

My Father in heaven can whip the father of this world.
So, if you're wondering why I feel so secure,
understand this...He said it and that settles it.
God is in control, I am on His side, and that means all is well with my soul.

Everyday is a blessing for GOD Is!

"GOLD DUST" ON THE MANTLE

JESUS

Hast thou no interests which occupy thy mind?

Tell Me of them all. . . . Of thy vocation. What dost thou think? What dost thou desire? Wouldst thou give pleasure to thy mother, thy family, those in authority over thee? what wouldst thou do for them?

And for Me hast thou no ardor? Dost thou not desire to do some good to the souls of those thou lovest, but who are forgetful of Me?

Tell Me of one in whom thou hast interest; the motive that actuates; the means thou wouldst employ.

Lay before Me thy failures, and I will teach thee the cause.

Why wouldst thou have to help thee? The hearts of all are in My keeping, and I lead them gently wheresoever I will. Rest assured, all who are needful to thee, I will place around thee.

By Charlotte M. Yonge - 1880
