Laugh It Up - 4/12/2013

SHORT THOUGHTS:  Laughter is God's wonderful medicine.  We need to take lots of it throughout the day and on a daily basis.  I believe it has healing properties and could be the cure for many things that ail us.  It is also safe for all ages and can even be given to babies! 

No one has ever died from taking too much laughter but even if they did, they passed to the next life with a big smile on their face.  I would say that is a win/win. 

Pitcher of Love - 4/9/2013

SHORT THOUGHTS:  Literally picture this...Your heart is a big mug and God has a big Holy Spirit pitcher full of His love and is pouring it into your waiting heart mug.  It would be overflowing...just sayin'.  If that is not a clear, beautiful picture of the great love that God has for us, I don’t know what is.

Romans 5:5 (NIV)
And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.

Body vs. Spirit - 4/11/2013

SHORT THOUGHTS:  My body and spirit are in a fight this morning. My body is very ticked off at my spirit for wanting to continue to play softball. My spirit is excited to be playing again and had a great time. My body is hurting in places that it forgot it had from all the running, sliding, diving and swinging (and that was just trying to get to the field). My spirit is saying, "I don't feel anything you big baby!" My body is giving my spirit dirty looks. My spirit is not even looking and is dancing.

Not the Bunny - 3/31/2013

SHORT THOUGHTS:  Today is not about the bunny, it's about the ONE that made the bunny and all living things on land and sea.  It's about the ONE that strung the stars and planets in the sky and made the ocean, the sand and the sunsets.  It's about the ONE that made the mountains, the forest, the rivers, the streams and the trees.  It's about the ONE that made you and me and the ONE that is the same yesterday, today and forever.  It's about then ONE who conquered death and now sits at the right hand of God the Father.  Thank you Jesus for Your sacrifice to make a way for one such as me.

Make the Most of Everything - 3/15/13

SHORT THOUGHTS:  Every day is a gift from God.  In the end, you will realize that every second was also.  Make the very most of what you have been given, even if it is not what you want to have.  Do your very best with what you have right now instead of waiting for what you wish you had.  That may never come.  Live and love as if it matters...because it all matters whether you can see it or not.

The Same One - 1/31/2013

SHORT THOUGHTS:  Where do you find rest?  Who is your refuge?  Who is your protector?  Who can you trust?  Where does your help come from?  Who made all the wonderful things around you?  Do not all the answers point to the same ONE?  Thank you God!!!

Psalm 91:1-2 (NIV1984)
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”

You Know - 2/2/2013

SHORT THOUGHTS:  You know you are finally starting to mature and grow up when you quit blaming all your struggles and problems on everyone else and instead start taking responsibility for your life and your choices. Then and only then can you start moving forward and start making real progress.

What Do You Need? - 1/9/2013

SHORT THOUGHTS:  What do you need today?  Not what do you "want" but what do you really "need?"  There is a big difference between the two though some people never see it.  What is it that will truly satisfy you all the way to your innermost being? 

Who's Leading - 1/6/2013

SHORT THOUGHTS:  I know God will meet me in all areas that HE is leading me in. And “I” meet me in all the areas that HE is not leading me in. And therein lies the problem. I need to be better at finding and following only the ways that HE is leading me.

MORE OF THE SAME - 1/6/2013

SHORT THOUGHTS:  If we don’t strive for higher and better things and require more and more from ourselves then we will surely reach the goal of, “more of the same.”   
David L. Wood 1/6/13
