    My God. What a day l will know just to start again wirh your Blessings. I hear the birds chirping their morning songs. Starting their day as l am. The creation's you put for us to see are all coming alive as l am, to start a brand new day. Never knowing what this day will hold. I go forward enjoying every moment now, helping others as l go. For God so LOVED THE WORLD. John 3:16. I GO FORWARD!!

    What is impossible right now to you? Turn it around and by the power of God make it Possible. . JESUS SAID, WITH MAN THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE, BUT WITH GOD ALL THING'S ARE POSSIBLE.! Mathew 19:26. Don't let another day pass without going after the impossible! !

    BY THE BLOOD WE ARE SAVED!! PRAISE GOD IN EVERY BLESSING YOU RECEIVE. ASK FOR HIS COMFORT WHEN YOU ARE DOWN AND OUT. DON'T LET YOUR SINS GET IN THE WAY OF GOD'S BEST THAT HE WANTS FOR US. ASK FOR FORGIVENESS. START OVER AND WIN AGAINST SATAN!! GOD IS YOUR LIFE. LOVE IS HOW YOU SHOULD BRING THE FATHER TO OTHERS. ..

    LORD I OFFER MY LIFE TO YOU....FORGIVE ME ALL MY SINS!!! Our purpose on earth is not to get lost in the dankness in our journey through life. But to be a Beacon of Light so that others may find their way... The Lord never fails to give us new Blessings everytime we wake up. Waking up alive and well is already a miracle. A Blessing we owe to Him. ..

    Close l am now now to my Savior and Lord. For His Son Suffered greatly on the cross for our daily sins. As long as we live in this sinful world, we should remember and be greatful that our Father sent His One and Only Son to understand and care in our daily lifes. He is always close offering His confort when we feel totally alone. Easter tells you His story!! PRAISE JESUS FOR SUFFERING FOR US!!!
