Hello from Barbara's Entourage

It's April. The saying has always been, 'April showers bring May flowers'. This year, the flowers are already in bloom, and many came out early enough that the late freeze got them.

The flowering trees are beautiful. I noticed all the beautiful dogwoods in bloom along the way, as I was traveling the roads today.

God made our world beautiful, although, sometimes we have trouble admitting it. We look at the world and see doom and gloom, wars and rumors of wars, and reflect more on the bad than the good.

The Middle East is a very troubled spot, but I believe it will remain so until the return of the Lord. We need to put our attention to prayer, and let GOD work the Middle East out His way. Then, remember that God is God, He is the same yesterday, today, and forever, and that He knows wants us to enjoy life in Him. I'm not a worrier, and I know God can take care of the situation better than me. Let's join together and pray for Israel.

Psalms 25:22 Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.

The Lord is My Shepherd

The Lord is my Shepherd
(That's Relationship!)
I shall not want
(That's Supply!)
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures
(That's Rest!)
He leadeth me beside the still waters
(That's Refreshment!)
He restoreth my soul
(That's Healing!)
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness
(That's Guidance!) Thou annointest my head with oil
(That's Consecration!)
My cup runneth over
(That's Abundance!)
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life
(That's Blessing!)
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord
(That's Security!)
(That's Eternity!)

Face it, the Lord loves you.

Received in email


One Sunday in a Midwest City, a young child was "acting up" during the morning worship hour. The parents did their best to maintain some sense of order in the pew but were losing the battle. Finally, the father picked the little fellow up and walked sternly up the aisle.

On his way out. Just before reaching the safety of the foyer, the little one called loudly to the congregation, "Pray for me! Pray for me!"

A word or two from ......

Christianity Today
By - Mark Galli

The old kind of Christian is the best hope for church renewal.

Read the entire story: The Virtue of Unoriginality

<((< -- <((< -- <(< -- <((< -- <((< -- <((<



Keep the generous heart of childhood which gives all you have to God. Let Him freely take whatever He pleases, all within and around you. Will only what He wills, desiring only what is in accordance with His Will, and finding nothing impossible that He commands.

Do you not feel something soothing and consoling in thee thoughts? The longer you live, the better you will understand that true happiness is only to e found in a life devoted to God, and given up entirely to His guidance.

No. no! none can harm you unless it be God's Will, and if He allows it; be patient and humble, weep if your heart is sore, but love always, and wait . . . the trial will pass away,but God will remain yours forever.

By Charlotte M. Yonge - 1880

That's a Roundup from Barbara's Entourage for this week.
"Head knowledge makes you smart; heart knowledge makes you HIS!"
