This was on my Facebook. It showed that to children, color doesn’t matter. One was Caucasian, the little boy, and the other was African American, the little girl. It was the sweetest picture I have seen in a long time.
“My daughter and I are in Myrtle Beach taking a sunset walk when this adorable and sweet little boy comes walking right up to her. He shares with her the shark tooth around his neck. He tells her his name and asks her name to which she tells him. They part ways while saying goodbye, walking in the opposite direction. A few minutes later he comes running back, in what seems to be in slow motion, yelling out my daughter’s name. She turns around and is greeted by his smile. So they share a few words, mainly about his super cool shark’s tooth that apparently gave him powers Before they walked, talked and raced, I asked his mother for permission to take this picture and this was the result. No one positioned them, told them to smile and there was absolutely no hesitation on their part at all. When we finished walking and it was time to go they hugged for a long time and exchanged about 20 “goodbyes.” This is a moment that we humans understand as just simply seeing no color lines, no judgement, no race, no hate, no shades. It’s just pure….two kids meeting on a sunset walk without a care in the world…all they saw was each other. This world would be a much better place if we acted like these two kids.”
This is what I have tried to get across to adults several times here lately. If only we adults could be as honest and truly interested in each other’s friendship instead of beating each other down, then the world would be so much better off. After all, “WE ARE ALL CREATED EQUAL!!!!!” These two precious children know it without even knowing what they are doing. Like the post said, they don’t see color, they only see the possibility of having another friend, and the friendship could last a lifetime! Wouldn’t that be sweet for these two children full of such brotherly love with no boundaries. Thank you, whoever, for posting this. And to this, I want to add, LOVE IN CHRIST!
There is nothing I can add or say that would make the message change in any way. We can’t put God the Father, God the Holy Ghost, and Jesus Christ the Son of God into any mold what so ever and make it be true. The Holy Trinity, as they are called, is omnipotent, that means that He can be everywhere at one time, because, “NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR HIM.” We only have to do two things for it to come true. We have to have Faith enough to know that it is true, and not to let anything that will cause you to doubt that fact come into your mind. Once we believe it, then we need to Share it with others, especially with the non-believers.
If we profess our faith before others, Jesus will profess us before God The Father of us all. And if we don’t profess our faith to Jesus, then we will be cast aside at the gates of Heaven because Jesus will not profess that we are Christians before God, and we will not be professed before God the Father. Just think about it very seriously. I am a Child of God, and God has me in His hands. Once I am in God’s hands nothing can pluck me out of them.
God does not care about the color of our skin. He cares if we love Him and have asked Him into our hearts, and whether or not we will follow His teachings. To God our skin color is not an issue. The Bible tells us that we are all created equal, and in His image. To me, that means that no one color is better than the other, or worse than the other. We are just the same. Being created equal means we all have the following in our bodies: a brain, a heart, two eyes, two ears,a tongue, a mouth, an esophagus, a throat, tonsils, a stomach, a liver, large intestines and small intestines(bowels), a spleen, two kidneys, a pancreas, a pelvis, two arms and hands, two legs and feet, a gallbladder, and a bladder. To top it all off, “WE ALL BLEED RED WHEN WE ARE SCRATCHED OR PUNCTURED WITH A SHARP OBJECT.”
Being created equal, we should treat each other like brothers and sisters, because that’s what we are. We are brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. When we see a brother or sister in trouble or in need, we should try to help them out the best we can. The “Golden Rule” in the Bible is in Matthew 7:12, and Luke 6:31. In Matthew 7:12 it is written: “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you; do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. … shall also do to them; for this is the law and the prophets.” It doesn’t actually say “The Golden Rule.”, that’s just what it has come to be known as, how everybody that says anything refers to it as.If another person is down in the road hurt and needing help, we are supposed to help the man, or get help to him. If another man is sick or injured and needing someone to help him with daily life, we are to go to him and help him with meals, medicines, bathing, and feeding him, whether he is actually a brother or not one, we are still to help him.
In telling us to do this, it doesn’t say to only help someone of your same color or nationality, it says to help your neighbor in whatever way he needs help.” in the Bible there is a section stating specifics, it is; Matthew 25:36 – “Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye … did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You something to drink? … widows in their distress, and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. … Good men, if they could not obtain release of prisoners, might comfort and …”
God is awesome, and He can do anything and everything that anybody and everybody may think is impossible. The word, IMPOSSIBLE, is not even in His vocabulary. It’s not possible for anything to be impossible for God. Just reread the things above and you will realize that what I am saying is true. When God is in your life, nothing is impossible to you. Once God The Father, Jesus Christ-The Son, and The Holy Ghost are in your heart, that means that you are then, and always will be, a Child Of God. Once you are a child of God, nothing and nobody can ever pluck you out of His hands!!!
Dear God, I try really hard to be the kind of person you want me to be. I treat all people equal, but I am not able to do all that they need me to do for them. When I can’t do what I think you want me to do, but can’t, I get upset with myself. Usually I apologize for not being able to help them very much, but that I will pray for them if they want me to, and I end up praying with them right there on the spot, because the Bible says “Where two or more are gathered in My name, there I shall be also.” I also invoke the passage to make Satan leave. I tell him “The Bible says that if I tell you to flee in Jesus name because the Bible says so, then you have to do it. So ‘Satan, get thee behind me in the name of Jesus. The Bible says you have to do it, I believe it so flee’.” I come asking You to forgive me for not being able to do all the things that I know people need to be done. I thank You for all of the things that You do for me, like keeping me well from the COVID-19, making it possible to qualify for a caregiver to help me around the apartment, providing the nurses that help me change my catheters every week, for giving me the strength to crochet scarves for homeless people, for being able to color the pictures that people may want in return for a donation to make more scarves for the homeless, and many other things, but especially for my friends and family. One really big thing that I thank You for is the promise that once a person has become a Child Of God and is therefore in Your hands, nobody can pluck that person out of Your hands. Thank You for bringing me safely through the day and then allowing me to wake up in the morning and see all the beauty around me that You have made for us. You are my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Love Your Child, Bonnie Jean Hern.
This was on Facebook. It is just one of many on Google.com, Bible Verse Images .com. These are beautiful. But there is not enough room to show them all. I am sure that many more will end up on this website from time to time.
FLEMING COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — Two Fleming County parents were killed in a car crash on Saturday after leaving their son’s high school graduation.
Also in the car were two of their sons, who are recovering at UK Hospital.
Kentucky State Police say the crash that killed Nancy and Lyndon Barnett happened near the intersection of KY-599 and KY-11.
Dalton Barnett is their youngest son and had just finished getting his diploma at his social distancing graduation celebration when the crash happened on their way home.
Dalton’s principal, Stephanie Emmons says this tragedy is felt not only in the school but throughout the entire community, “being from a tight-knit community any kind of tragedy doesn’t just impact a small portion of the community, it impacts all of us.”
Dalton was one of the first grads to walk across the stage, his mother, Nancy, wore a shirt that read “some people wait their entire lives to meet their inspiration, I raised mine.”
Emmons says Dalton has plans to join the military after graduation.
Dalton and his older brother, Michael, are being treated at UK Hospital.
To all of my readers, any of you that are praying people, please pray for this young man and the rest of his family, especially his brothers that are being treated at UK Hospital.
This young man and his brothers have a long way to go, and no parents to help to guide them when they need encouragement.
Also, please put this family on the prayer list at your individual Churches.The more prayers the better. Besides, prayers never hurt anybody. Thank you for joining me in my praying for them at the same time as some of you may be praying for them also.
When some people begin to blame their behavior on what they hear, they need to remember this Bible quote. What it boils down to is that just because you heard something mean or dirty, or anything bad doesn’t mean you have to act on it or repeat it.
This is from Facebook. I imagine that there are quite a few people that feel like they are failing when they are struggling. It’s very hard to understand how anybody can even think that they are not failing when the struggling gets worse and worse, and it seems like things are never going to change. I have gone through it many many times. But I have some secrets that I try to fall back on, and here lately they have worked just fine.
I love music, especially Christian music and Southern Gospel. Whenever things start going wrong, I try to sing as many songs as I can remember. This is especially true when I am alone. It’s sort of praying and singing at the same time, if you can imagine it. Music has always cheered me up. Especially the songs we sing in Church. After all the Bible says:
I looked it up on Google and this is what the results are.
Psalm 100 is the 100th psalm in the Hebrew Bible of the Book of Psalms. In English, it is translated as “Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.” in the King James Version (KJV), and as “O be joyful in the Lord, all ye lands” in the Book of Common Prayer (BCP).
Sometimes I try to think of really special and upbeat things to try. One of the things that I try is reading the poem, “God Has Not Promised” You will find it below. I looked this up on Google as well.
God hath not promised skies always blue,
Flower strewn pathways all our lives through;
God hath not promised sun with out rain,
Joy without sorrow, peace without pain.
But God hath promised strength for the day,
Rest for the labor, light for the way;
Grace for the trials, help from above,
Unfailing sympathy, undying love.
God hath not promised we shall not know
Toil and temptation, trouble and woe;
He hath not told us we shall not bear
Many a burden, Many a care.
God hath not promised smooth roads and wide,
Swift, easy travel, needing no guide;
Never a mountain rocky and steep,
Never a river turbid and deep.

Not everybody has everything handed to them on a silver platter. And even the ones that do seemingly have everything, could still be struggling. Struggling just shows that you are trying to accomplish whatever thing it is that you are working on.
This was on Facebook. A Baby bird had fallen out of its nest. The Mama bird was there just in time to catch the Baby bird by its feet, and even more amazing the Daddy bird just happened to be there to help support the Baby bird by its back and feathers until the Mother bird was able to pull it back into the nest. Just seeing this picture, shows in yet another way, just how awesome and amazing God is with the automatic instincts that were given to the Mother bird and the Father bird for them to be able to catch and save this little bird.
