Will be away for a little while. Giving my mind, heart, and soul a rest. So, I leave y’all, for a moment, with the blessings of Faith, Hope, & Love. Be back soon, Blessings All-DE
Faith, Hope, & Love
"We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers, remembering without ceasing your work of faith, labor of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ in the sight of our God and father, knowing. beloved brethren, your election by God" (1 Thessalonians 1:2-4. NKJV).
"But let us who are of the day sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation" (1 Thessalonians 5:8. NKJV).
"And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love" (1 Corinthians 13:13. NKJV).

It Only Takes OneWhen in life one friend is better than noneWith one you know to life you are okayAs in realizing it only takes oneAlthough rough when the bonding begunYou are both still together to this dayWhen in life one friend is better than noneFor it seems fulfillment in life is doneWhen to this the Lord you did prayAs in realizing it only takes oneThe one lifts you with words of hopeMaking life bearable when it seems hardGiving you strength in life to copeThis care can sometimes catch you off guardAs you thought no one even caredEspecially when life has left you marredThankful to God the day you became pairedWhen in life one friend is better than noneFor in life your loving care is then sharedAs in realizing it only takes one©Doris Elaine
Thoughts: Sometimes one friend is all one may need in life to lift one up when one has none. Sure, one can have family or relatives that care; but, it is not the same as a friend outside of this care. And, some people have no one that cares. It's hard to share care and love when one is not receiving it themselves from a true and dear friend. Be a friend to someone and share the care and love as sometimes, it only takes one!

"Though I speak with the tongues of man and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing." (1 Corinthians 13:1-3. NKJV).
Love Never Fails!
"Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things." (1 Corinthians 13: 4-7. NKJV).
Spread The Love!

Now I Fight To His GloryAs the Lord edited Our storyHe showed me the nature of my purposeAnd now I fight to His gloryMoving closer to His territoryIn His care I need not fearAs the Lord edited Our storyAlthough hard in this reformatoryI give in and do shed a tearAnd now I fight to His gloryWhen in His care my being viewedHe does act on Our behalf knowingIt's to His glory where change is spewedI then submit to this knowledge bestowingMore tears in realizing in Him I trustAs I know my faith is now growingTo this revelation I know a mustAs the Lord edited Our storyMy being now wakes to this being justIn faith now I fight to His glory©Doris Elaine
Thoughts: As Christians we are contentiously in growth. And sometimes this growth can be very painful as God trims and prunes us for His purpose. We must have faith in Him alone to survive this world and know He will generate this faith; sometimes in the most unexpected and awesome ways. With me, I thought I needed friends and a mate to be whole. But the Lord recently gave me the knowing that my wholeness does not lay in mankind; but, rather faith in Him alone. Don't take me wrong, I do not dislike people nor do I think people just cannot be trusted; however, due recent events my faith in people has been affected in proving this to be faulty; whereas, faith in God and belief in His Son is never faulty. My eyes have been opened in a very painful, but a just and necessary way, in building my faith in Him alone. "For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, The just shall live by faith." (Romans 1:17. NKJV). Don't know God's purpose in the way He has intervened in my life to build my faith in Him alone, only know my purpose now is to live in this faith as my fight to His glory.

Because I Refuse To BlendWhen in this world the norm is to pretendI ask the Lord to guide me throughGive me strength because I refuse to blendTo others I do not mean to offendWhen I refuse to conform to other's viewWhen in this world the norm is to pretendFor it's to You Lord I do dependAs in my commitment to You I grewGive me strength because I refuse to blendSometimes in this world I do weakenWhen I see everyone following the flowThen Your guidance shines bright as a beaconIn following You instead I knowMy soul leaps with excitement in gainsAs my being then guided and growsSometimes this world gives emotional strainsWhen in this world the norm is to pretendThankful the Lord saves me from these painsHe gives me strength because I refuse to blend
