My Father In Heaven
When the father you have is less than what he should be
because of weakness or circumstance, there is one who
will never be a disappointment.
There is a father who knew you in the mother's womb,
who knew all the days of life appointed to you.
This father has a plan for your life, and that plan
is only for good and not for evil.
Our heavenly father knew that we would not live a perfect life,
but had the foresight to provide a Redeemer for us.
This was a perfect person who without sin would give His life
for us, not only while we were living; but even after death
provided a way of escape so that we would not perish eternally.
He gave us a hope and a reason for our existence.
He was a shepherd to us showing us the way of salvation and
He even sent us a "Helper" to be with us who would provide us
with the spiritual gifts that we would use to fulfill the plan that
was hidden in the mystery of our future before us.
We were no accident. We are precious in His sight. He calls us
His children. We have the honor of being named saints because
our lives have been predestined to follow the pathway that was
designed for each of us.
This Father's day we honor our Creator, our Heavenly Father,,
whose name is above all names, whose holiness is without
question. He said in His Word that we should be Holy as He
is Holy. He has done all that was needed to make it so, and
it is up to us to surrender and commit our lives to our Father
who words cannot express His greatness.
He asks for our obedience and love and fellowship.
The creator of the Universe and all
that is in it calls us daughters and sons. To me that is beyond
explanation. I have no words, I can only commit my life to
Him and know that He will never leave or forsake me, that He
will be there when I draw my last breath here in this earthly
existence. I can only worship and praise His Holy name. Amen
What a marvelous day it will be when our Savior's face we shall see;
When he holds out His hand and says come, I will show you to your new home. As a bridegroom prepares for his bride a space, Jesus will fashion for each of us a wonderful place before He comes to take us, his bride, to our new dwelling.
When trials, sickness, and despair greet us with each new day's dawn, within our hearts we yearn for that time when our angel will come to escort us to our new heavenly throne.
Only joy and gladness there will be on that day when our Savior says, "Come and see the place that I have prepared for you." The sorrows of earth will diminish when we see His smile, and He says it is enough, come and rest for there are no more trials. You have passed the test.
Glorious day, glorious day!

I used to think that people didn't need
their moms so much after they grew up.
But I've realized that's not true.
So often, when I'm making a decision,
I wish you were here
so I could ask your advice.
And so many times,
when something happens
that I know you would enjoy,
I wish you were here
to share it with me.
Now that I'm older
I've realized how special our relationship is,
And while I'm thankful for this bond,
somehow it makes me miss you more..
Mom, I love you so very much.
God's Helpers - by George W. Wiseman
God could not be in every place
With loving hands to help erase
The teardrops from each baby's face,
And so He thought of mother.
He could not send us here alone
And leave us to a fate unknown;
Without providing for His own,
The outstretched arms of mother.
God could not watch us night and day
And kneel beside our crib to pray,
Or kiss our little aches away;
And so He sent us mother.
And when our childhood days began,
He simply could not take command,
That's why He placed our tiny hand
Securely into mother's.
The days of youth slipped quickly by,
Life's sun rose higher in the sky.
Full grown were we, yet ever nigh
to love us still, was mother.
And when life's span of years shall end
I know that God will gladly send,
To welcome home her child again,
That ever-faithful mother.
I no longer have my mother. She died at the age of 57 by suicide. I miss her and think of her constantly. I pray that God in His mercy has accepted her into His Kingdom. He knew that she was mentally ill at the time she took her life. I agree with the writer of the poem above when she wrote that there are many times I would desire to have her opinion on something I'm going through.
Mom's are to be like God, in that she is to love her children unconditionally even when the lifestyle they choose is clearly not the right one. My children mean the world to me. I would gladly give my life for them if need be. I am so grateful to God that He entrusted me with my son, daughter, and grandson. There are so many times I feel that I was not a good parent and wish I could redo many things, but you cannot go back. You must continue on life's path and be on your knees for your family, praying that God will have mercy on all of us. He is love, He considered me worthy to be a mother. I only wish that I could have been and can be a better one.
I am so grateful that God is a father to me. That means everything. If my children, husband, and I will be accepted into His Kingdom, that is all I ask. I praise His Holy Name and want to serve Him as long as I have breath to do so.
Winter Park Aglow will meet the 2nd Saturday of each month at Aloma U. Methodist Church, 3045 Aloma Avenue, Winter Park, FL in room 24 at 9:30 a.m. The Phone Number for Aloma is 407 671-2180.

The end of May on the Jewish Calendar, Shavuot, or the Feast of Weeks will be celebrated May 30 to June 1, 2017.
This feast celebrates the giving of the 10 Commandments to Moses on Mt. Sinai - pictured above.
On the Gregorian Calendar, Christians will celebrate Pentecost-when the Power of the Holy Spirit descended onto those 120 who were gathered in the Upper Room.
This was commanded by Jesus to the disciples to stay in Jerusalem until the promise would be given. They would receive power to be witnesses of the Kingdom of God to the whole world.
Flames of fire rested upon the disciples heads. Jesus had told the disciples that they would be baptized with fire when the Holy Ghost was poured out. Jesus would be the baptizer and they the recipients.
The Book of Acts tells us what happened after they received this power. Signs would follow those who believed enabling them to do the miracles Jesus performed and greater miracles than He did because He would be going to the Father.
Not only were they the only ones to receive this Baptism of Fire, but all who are believers in Christ are eligible to receive the same.
They received a supernatural language that they had not learned nor had before receiving the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. The promise of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is available today for those who seek and ask God for it. So, Beloved, take advantage of this promise today. Ask and you shall receive.
Winter Park Aglow Community Light House meets the 2nd. Saturday of each month at Aloma U. Methodist Church, 3045 Aloma Avenue, Winter Park, FL. 32792. Phone Number for the church is 407 671-2180.
The meeting is held in room 24. Men, Women, and teens are all invited to take part. There is a door prize given if you get a ticket before 9:45 a.m., and refreshments are always served. All who desire prayer are prayed for, usually after the meeting- which starts at 9:30 a.m. and ends around 12:30 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
If you need encouragement and a blessing, attend the Aglow meeting. You will be glad you came.
In the Book of Revelation, the lamb is the only one that is worthy to open the scroll, the only one able to loose the seals.
The lamb was used at the Feast of Passover as a sacrifice for the firstborn of every house. It had to be without spot or blemish and innocent of all wrongdoing. The nation of Israel was saved by the lamb's blood sprinkled on the doorposts of each dwelling.
The lamb is symbolic of our Lord Jesus Christ who was given as a sacrifice for the sins of mankind. As we make preparation for celebrating the Passover Season, it is good to remember what Christ did for us.
God came down as an act of love to save a reprobate world; not as He did in the Book of Genesis when He sent the flood of Noah to destroy the creation at that time. He is love. He is a God of love and forgiveness. Although we are not worthy as John said, to unleash His sandals, He has compassion on us.
The world we live in is just as evil as back in the time of Genesis, but God said He would not destroy it by a flood again. He is not a man that He should lie.
Jesus stands at the door of our hearts asking to gain entrance to our lives. We must reach out to others and let them know that this salvation is available today, just as it was back when the lamb was offered as a sin covering for all the people who lived, and those who are alive now. We must let the Holy Spirit show us who to be a witness to.
I pray that God will soften our hearts so that we can hear our Lord's voice. Jesus said that Greater things we would do than He did, so let us go about doing them. Amen

|JESUS AND DISCIPLES ON THE STORMY SEA|
Every day as we turn on the news, we wonder how many people have been killed today. These are truly turbulent times. Our hope is that the Lord Jesus will return, and take us out of the violent storms that are happening all around us.
Here is a quote from Bonnie Jones, Pineville, NC, taken from her prophecy, A Word for 2017, taken From Steve Shultz, Founder and Publisher of The Elijah List and Breaking Christian News. http://www.elijahlist.com
...I believe the Lord is showing me that all ministries have been given equal opportunity to, "Follow Me." And in faith they began to cross the calm water of the Holy Spirit. However, when things got tough and it began to storm those of little faith turned back to shore. It was easier to return to past failures than go beyond the veil to see what the Holy Spirit had awaiting them. They gave up hope and turned back to their safety zone.
I do not relish looking forward to harrowing times. We have enough problems in our daily lives without contemplating more difficulties in the ministry that God has called us to. But with Jesus in our boat calming the waters, we will overcome the seemingly insurmountable odds that we are facing today, and surely will face in the future.
We need to focus on the words of Jesus for us, "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. Matthew 28:19-20 KJV
REMEMBER, JESUS CALMED THE RAGING SEA, AND THEY ARRIVED SAFELY ASHORE.
