 We celebrate our ultimate Father, the Lord God of all, during this Father's Day Meeting.


The Love of God by Frederick M. Lehman  Copyright: Public Domain
 Verse 1
The love of God is greater far
Than tongue or pen can ever tell;
It goes beyond the highest star,
And reaches to the lowest hell;
The guilty pair, bowed down with care,
God gave His Son to win;
His erring child He reconciled,
And pardoned from his sin.

     Refrain:
     Oh, love of God, how rich and pure!
     How measureless and strong!
     It shall forevermore endure--
     The saints' and angels' song.
 Verse 2
When hoary time shall pass away,
And earthly thrones and kingdoms fall,
When men who here refuse to pray,
On rocks and hills and mountains call,
God's love so sure, shall still endure,
All measureless and strong;
Redeeming grace to Adam's race--
The saints' and angels' song.
 Verse 3
Could we with ink and ocean fill,
And were the skies of parchment made,
Were every stalk on earth a quill,
And every man a scribe by trade;
To write the love of God above
Would drain the ocean dry;
Nor could the scroll contain the whole,
Though stretched from sky to sky.

Frederick Lehman tells us that verse 3 "had been found penciled on the wall of a patient's room in an insane asylum after he had been carried to his grave."  While it is only supposition that he was the one who adapted the Jewish author's poem to leave us these well-known lines, if the account is true, it shows in any case, that he highly esteemed the message.

The June Winter Park Aglow meeting, as usual during the month of June, will be in honor of Father's Day. Our guest speaker is a wonderful man with a great message for all who will attend; men, women, and teens.  
We will meet in Room 24 at 9:30 A.M. at Aloma United Methodist Church: located at 3045 Aloma Avenue, Winter Park, Florida.
Refreshments will be served, and a door prize given to those who come by 9:45 A.M.


No reservations or fee is required, although an offering will be taken during the meeting.  We meet the 2nd. Saturday of every month, and our speakers are always wonderful in sharing the message God has given them for a particular meeting. 

Call 407 538-7984 for further information.

May 9, 2015 Winter Park Aglow Lighthouse Meeting.

Mother's Day May 10, 2015

     Our lives are compared to a tapestry: 
The first thread, of course, is always our Heavenly Father, God.  He knew us before we were born, while we were yet being formed in our mother's womb. Where we were before this time is a mystery to me.
     The second section of threads are our parents, with our mother being of vital importance, since she carried us for the first nine months; or so, of our lives.  A child is usually totally dependent on his/her mother for nurture and substance.  God in His great wisdom has provided the wee-helpless children with mothers to care for  them as the babies He has provided as a GIFT to parents, at least that is what He has intended them to be.
       Whether we desire to or not, our lives are like a constant replay of our growing-up days...how we were treated as children, whether we felt loved or not, and the way we were taught to handle life as we grew older.
     Although my mother is no longer with us, her teachings and rearing are a part of me and will always be.  A good mother's worth is more precious than gold or any other mineral that exists.  I constantly miss her and always will. I wish she would still be alive.  I know that all of us can recall our mothers and what they meant to us whether we want to or not.
     This Mother's Day we will honor our mother...a precious gift from God to show us how to meet the challenges of life.

     Saturday the 9th of May will be our monthly Aglow meeting at Aloma U. Methodist Church at the corner of Routes 426 and 436 in Winter Park, FL.  We will start at 9:30 a.m.  All are invited to attend. There is no registration or cost. A free-will offering will be taken.  We will meet in Room 24. Signs will guide you to the area where we will be attending. A blessing gift will be given after a drawing for those in attendance before 9:45 a.m.  There is always coffee and refreshments.  We collect nonperishable foods for the needy at all of our meetings.
     All are invited including Men and Teens. No membership is required.
     Our speaker this month is a wonderful blind minister who has written many books.  She travels, and does not let blindness hinder her in sharing the Gospel Message.  We could all do with some of her wonderful courage.
     You can preview previous posts of Winter Park Aglow Lighthouse Ministry blogspots on this web site.  Come to a meeting and be inspired, prayed for, and feel the Love of our Wonderful God. 

Call 407 538-7984 if you need further information.

MARCH CAME IN LIKE A LAMB

Winter Park Aglow Community Lighthouse
March 2015



 The Shepherd and the Lamb are most appropriate for March.

The winds of change seem to be blustering all around us.  All we can do is hold on to our Shepherd, Jesus, who will never leave or forsake us. He is a friend who is closer than a brother.  We are in the season of Lent now, and the Crucifixion celebration is fast approaching.  It is not about bunnies and cute chicks, not even Easter lilies.  It is about the Son of God who gave His life for all humanity.  Now there are those who want to remove the title:  Son of God from the Scriptures, making it more appealing to others who do not accept Him as such.  When He was resurrected with all the power of the Holy Spirit, He was the Son of
God then, and He will be when the trumpet sounds and He will split the heavens with His glorious presence.  Praise the Holy name of JESUS who is now and evermore shall be the same.

GIVING - MY POEM


GIVING




I asked the Lord:
What should I give?
He said, "My Life"
That I might live;

He said, "My Eyes"
To see the Lost,
And then "My Mind"
To count the cost;

He said,  "My Hands"
That I might serve
And "My Heart"
That I might not swerve.

He said, "My Feet"
To walk His walk
And "My Tongue"
That He might talk;

But I would not 
A beggar be
For He has 
A Crown of Life for me.

Winter Park Aglow Community Lighthouse
February Meeting at: Aloma United Methodist Church
                                   3045 Aloma Avenue, 
                                   Winter Park, Florida  32792
                                                      Room 24 at 9:30 a.m. 
                                    Saturday, February 14, 2015

This is the month that we celebrate Love. There are the three different types of which the Greek word AGAPE is the God kind of love, and PHILEO, human kindness or brotherly love, and  EROS which is the romantic type of love.

This month the I CORINTHIANS chapter 14 is the type of love we want to covet. We strive to achieve this pure, unselfish type of LOVE.  Though we may not have reached this goal, we can attempt to practice it, for it is the Scriptural type of love God gives in this great LOVE CHAPTER.

LOVE is the greatest gift that God has imparted to us:   GOD IS LOVE. It is His nature, It is who HE is.  So let us attempt to follow the example that Jesus gave us, wherein Christ died for us while we were yet sinners and gave His life for the whole world; and whoever receives Him as Lord and Savior will have eternal life according to John 3:16.
Never forget that Jesus loves you.  Have a blessed month.  Come to our Aglow meeting and be blessed with Fellowship, Prayer, Refreshments, and a great Speaker.  We start at 9:30.  
Contact Pearl at 407 538-7984 for further information.

Winter Park Community Aglow Lighthouse - Flyer for January 2015

What time I am afraid, I will trust in you, Lord.

What will the New Year Hold for us?

2014 has had its good times and bad times.  If ever we needed to hold onto God's hands, it is the coming year.  There are many predictions, and some of them are not very encouraging.

The promises in The Bible are for today and the future, because God never changes. His words never returns void without fulfilling what they were spoken and written to do. We need not fear, but we are to be steadfast and pray about everything.  Our trust in God is our only hope and security in the future events.  

There are new doors waiting for us to go through, but God promises to be there when these are opened.  He will never leave or forsake us. The key is to have the knowledge of Jesus in our hearts and lives. We do not know what the future holds for us, but we can know and should know Who holds our future.

Prayer:  Lord, you are everything we need when we go through the water and the fires.  Like the three Jewish men in the Book of Daniel, we will come through hard times with not even the smell of smoke upon us. Our enemies will be defeated if we stand still and see the victory on our behalf.  It is not by might nor by power, but by your Spirit, Lord.  Amen.
