TOP OF THE MANTLE

It's a beautiful winter day here in the south, with the sun shining. But, with the wind blowing,it's still too cold outside to stay out very long. That gives us reason not to do yard work.

I sit here and watch the wild turkeys out the Den window, feeding in our pasture. My husband has been putting out corn for the turkeys and the deer that occasionally grace our yard. It's such a beautiful site to see the deer grazing without fear, that is, until a dog or something spooks them. Then, off they go!

I hope, wherever you are today, that God has given you a perfect day in which to reflect His love. It's in the beauty of the flowers, the beautiful site of the colored leaves on the trees, and the animals roving about the woods. It's in the beautiful blue sky, or even the grey one that occasionally gives us a glimpse of His beauty in the clean, white snow. We haven't gotten much this winter, but who knows! We have had big snows in March, and winter isn't over yet!

Psalms 118:24 This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

SNIPPET FROM THE MANTLE
A word or two from ......

Charisma News Service
By Andy Butcher

It's not only the world that no longer believes in right and wrong - acceptance of absolute truth is fast disappearing in the church, too. Almost as many Christians are likely to base their moral decisions on what they feel rather than what the Word teaches, according to a new survey.

"GOLD DUST" ON THE MANTLE

Continued:

Another time we lost the opportunity, because we were always shirking it. Deep devotion is sometimes a little erratic; always afraid of doing too little, doing it badly or inopportunely. Oftener still the tokens of affection are checked, because we think we could show it in some better way; we put off till brighter days the dreams we cherished, the sweet yearning to open the heart to the loved ones, and let them see for once what a large place they fill there.

Alas! the days fly past, suddenly comes death, or sadder still, separation without hope of return, leaving the bitter thought: "Others will show them better than I have done, how dear, how valued, they are." Ah! when we can be loving today, never let us say, "I will love tomorrow;" when we have the opportunity of being grateful, never put off, for one hour,the proof of our gratitude!

By Charlotte M. Yonge - 1880
