Blessed are the children, who will lead the way.


Children-what a blessing they are in my life. From their innocence, purity, freedom, and guileless natures, I learn to take one day, one moment, at a time.

Children are my guides through the maze of life's mysteries. I bless these wonderful miracles in my life, children who are my teachers, my reminders that each moment can be a new beginning.

Whereever they are, whatever they are doing, these young ones are growing, learning, and adapting to the environment in which they live. Giving thanks for all the children, I appreciate them as God's vision for the greater good in the world.

"But take care and watch yourselves closely, so as neither to forget the things that your eyes have seen not to let them slip from your mind all the days of your life; make them known to your children and your children's children." Daily Word 41 (Sept. 26, 2007)

The Powerful Blessings of Prayers

After writing the previous post, I received this email from Angela (truly an angel) Baker, the well-known gospel singer: God works in mysterious wonderful ways

There is no cost but a lot of rewards. Let's continue to pray for one another.

The prayer:
Father, I ask You to bless my friends, relatives and those that I care deeply for, who are reading this right now. Show them a new revelation of Your love and power. Holy Spirit, I ask You to minister to their spirit at this very moment. Where there is pain, give them Your peace and mercy. Where there is self-doubt, release a renewed confidence through Your grace. Where there is need, I ask you to fulfill their needs. Bless their homes, families, finances, their goings and their comings. In Jesus' precious name. Amen.

The following is from Daily Word for Sept. 06, 2007
I Accept My Good and Then Pass It On a Blessing to Others
I have been blessed with people who have been my positive role models and mentors.
Through the contributions of these thoughtful people, I have learned about loving and caring for others, the importance of sharing the resources available to me with those in need, the joy of giving a kind gesture to someone who needs a caring touch.
Those who have treated me with respect and dignity have taught me the importance of embracing all people who inhabit our world. There are those I do bless, as I pass on the love, respect and kindness I have received. The actions I take today have the potential to change a life for the better. My personal, sacred mission is to pass on to others the peace, love, hope and joy within me.
The Lord is faithful in all his words, and gracious in all his deeds. Psalm 145:13
