The day of joy has come; The day the Lord has made; A day that delights the heart; The type of happy day We don’t have everyday; Do you know? Much this day means to me; I feel so favoured And so blessed; As God our Creator, Greater than any other; Whom I look up to for all, Has blessed me With graces so abundant; As I start Such a day of joy; I will keep it holy; And keep filling it with smiles; This day the Lord has made.
‘We need old friends to help us grow old and new friends help us stay young”Letty Cottin Pogrebin
It’s true that peers share common interest because they are in the same age group,but still you can share interests with people who are younger or older than you.In fact you can learn a lot from different kinds of conversations.
Personally I feel there is no age limit.
Age becomes just a number on many occasions,and friendship is no different.
Remember Friendship just happens.
Never judge people by the age.
As long as you share mutual interest,comfortable with each other,and even supportive in situations that demand your attention difference in age makes no difference.
The joy that the friendship gives irrespective of the age difference can not be explained by these two friends concerned.
Friendship vibes are a wonderful feelings as long as
you don’t cross the limits or
Become possessive or
Have High expectations or
Develop emotional dependency.
Doesn’t everybody deserve a Best Friend Forever ?
Follow your heart but carry your mind too.

Can you be in
God’s presence? Many search for a time and the place where God lives while sitting
in a quiet corner, reading their bible. Others pray to ask for an anointed morning.
The sin of Adam and Eve prevented our ability to be in the physical presence of
God. So, I find comfort in the reality of His existence – the miracles of each
beautiful day. Obedience to His written word brings me closer than I can ever
imagine to the Lord.
I examine the
blessings which flow before me outside my home – beautiful flowers of every
species blossom in the morning light. Young, saplings stand tall and proud. I dug
them out of the nursery and fed and nurtured their delicate roots over a prayer.
Lord, please take care of my trees. Let my integrity follow as I love the
tree in me as much as this seedling I planted in the ground.
presence brings joy and peace. He awaits to hear from us. I remember something my
dad would do when I was a young boy. Before heading to work, and just as the sun peeked over the
cove, he’d stroll down our long pier. I’d ask him why he occasionally walked the
dock. He said he was looking for crabs attached to the poles. But, I understand
now for he found his presence in God through the tranquility of the water. The
bay was his church outside his actual house of worship.
wife is the editor of my blog and website. She often speaks of God’s presence
while she is editing my narratives. I write my pieces, but she must find the
coordinating bible verses. Many times she’s stumped finding the correct scripture.
Within a few minutes of frustration, though, He puts her back in His presence
and guides her hand.
The Old Testament describes
the presence of God directly associated with the tabernacle in the wilderness
or the temple in Jerusalem. It is here we speak of entering God’s presence for
it is a place where He appointed His name, purposely for us to dwell. It is why
we feel nearer to Him in church and not the building’s spatial orientation. He
offers us a transforming and joyful experience within the confines of His house.
“But for me it is good to be near God; I
have made the Lord God my refuge, that I may tell of all your works.” Psalm
Regardless of how
late I’m awake each night, I have to honor our Almighty in the dawn’s early
light. At my tender age, I feel the love I missed most in my life, and it derives
from God. His presence is in the fragrance of serenity and in the accomplishments
of each nail I drive and every word I write to you. I silently pray, give me
strength, dear Father, and anoint me each morning so I may better serve You and
Your masterful plan. I’m honored that You chose me to be a part of that which I
can’t comprehend. I keep my faith because of You, Lord.
When our heavenly
Father greets us with peace and a breeze, it is a subtle reminder our life on
earth is because of Him. The Bible begins and ends in the presence of God for Eden
will return and expand into a new heaven and a new earth. God’s chosen people will
enjoy His presence forever. Rejoice in the joy!
sorrows for yesterday is forgiven and tomorrow is a new beginning. Render not
what is yours, but what is God’s possessions, so you may be absolute in heaven.
Start your day in praise and prayer. You, too, will be in God’s presence.
Light came briefly To our utter joy And sorrow; First, we were so joyful That at all it had come; And while we had not finished The start of celebration, Again it vamoused like air; Plunging us once more Into total darkness; How long this will take, It’s not what I can say; Hope it doesn’t stay long; For we can do nothing, When we are buried In darkness. Light brings life and joy.
And Nehemiah continued, “Go and celebrate with a feast of rich foods and sweet drinks, and share gifts of food with people who have nothing prepared. This is a sacred day before our Lord. Don’t be dejected and sad, for the joy of the Lord is your strength!” Nehemiah 8:10 NLT
Rejoice in the Lord always [delight, take pleasure in Him]; again I will say, rejoice! PHILIPPIANS 4:4 AMP
How was your day? Was it a day well spent? Or a day of regrets And tears; My heart goes to you If your day was filled By years; I pray God may comfort you. And if your day was full Of joy Don’t forget those who Had it hard. Pray that the rays of the sun may shine on them but too; As they did on you; By the way, Not all days can be good. Some days will be good; Some days will be bad. Bad days and good days; Such is life.
Night can be seen On her heels Running so fast; Like clouds In the sky, As if by Light She is chased; Darkness soon, Will be gone, And supreme Will reign Light; The suffering And death of Good Friday Shall soon be A thing of the past; Hear Easter knocking At the door Asking to be let in; Who can stop him? Whenever our winter Comes, with her cold And suffering, Let’s not despair; But get ready for joy Which will soon be ours. Winter is gone; Suffering is dead; Easter is born; Joy is here. All the world shines Brightly.
