Fellowship Friday Jan.16 2016

Welcome to the 2016 edition of fellowship Friday! It is late in the day that I am posting this but better late than never. Sometimes timing is everything. It can make all the difference in the world. It can even save a life! This was the case for an American college student. When she first seen Chris it was obvious he was homeless. He was walking around picking up change off the side of the road. Eventually he made his way over to a Dunkin Doughnuts. She watched him count his change to see how much he had presumably to get something to eat. With compassion in her heart she began talking to him. At first she irritated to him, it was clear he didn’t want to talk. Despite that she continued to pester him. Seeing he only had about a dollar she bought him a bagel and a coffee and asked him to sit down with her. Chris obliged. He proceeded to tell her that people usually treated him unkindly because he was homeless. That drugs had “turned him into someone he hated”. That he had lost his mother to cancer, also that he had never met his dad. Chris wanted so bad to be a man his mom could be proud of. The two spoke for hours. Chris was one of the most honest and sincere people she had ever met. Unfortunately time was no longer on their side, she had to return to class. Upon telling Chris this he asked if she could wait a moment longer before she left. He pulled out a crumpled old receipt and a pen, once he was finished he handed the paper to her apologizing for the shaky handwriting. Once she got to her car she opened the scrap of paper. What was written there was likely not what she had ever expected. 

  
I wanted to kill my self today. Because of u I now do not. Thank u, beautiful person.”

Praise the Lord! It is amazing how God puts us at different places at different times. That He puts love and compassion in our hearts to reach out or help our fellow brothers and sisters. This story really has nothing to do with giving anything monetary to someone less fortunate. While yes she did buy him a coffee and a bagel, the greatest thing she had given him was a compassionate ear and time. This man was likely at the lowest point in his life. So much so he wanted to kill himself, but it wasn’t Chris’ day. This college student through compassion and love saved a mans life. A common phrase that drives me bonkers is “time is money”. While yes in some instances this is a true statement, I feel it minimizes the true power and value of time. As we see here time has the power to control life and death. A human life is so very precious and the time we have with one another is so limited. I encourage all of you take a look at how you value time. Is time money? Can the value of time really be measured? God bless each and every one of you and your families. In the week ahead please take that extra moment as you never know what difference it can make. Thank you and always have a safe, fun, God filled weekend. For this article and many more click here.

Praise the Lord!!

We just had the most amazing night! We had Gorbachoff, Spiff and Pug over for dinner tonight and it was just awesome! The Lord has found such favor in us, far more than I could ever imagine! It was one of those nights you never want to end! I couldn’t have asked for more. I am not just talking about tonight. I am talking about my life! Everything has turned around, it’s back to how it was before the accident. No…..better! I have my family back! My prayers have been answered ten fold! I love my brothers and now I have both of them!!! There is one person who I pray would want to share in this joy with, but I am not greedy and when this person is ready they will come to me. Until then I will continue to pray for them and that they get past whatever it is that is keeping them from me. My little Pug was so sweet! Tonight it was as if she couldn’t get enough of me. She melts my heart that little girl! Another answered prayer, her and I baked my special cake (she learned the secret ingredient). I am so happy and blessed I can’t stop thanking The Lord for all He is doing for me! Oh!!!! Also I got my feet tattoo’s finally!!!!! I have always tried to live by Psalm 119:133 “Guide my footsteps according to YOUR Word”. It’s in a pretty script across both feet! I absolutely love it! Unfortunately I won’t be posting any pictures of them, just my personal online rules. Darn those rules!! Lol sorry this ran on so long I just wanted to share the blessings and love of The Lord with all of you, my brothers and sisters of Christ! Ooohhh!!!! Also we got the best gift tonight from Pug! She is 4 and she drew a picture and wrote her alphabet! God bless all of you my dear brothers and sisters!

Fellowship Friday

Hello all! Happy Friday once again! This week’s story is one of giving. A homeless fellow was in a music store looking at guitars, he picked one and started playing it and singing. He asked how much the guitar was and was told it was $159. He said he would have to go out and beg in order to be able to afford it. A man who was in the store getting his daughters saxophone repaired, overheard the conversation said he would buy it for him. The homeless man was nearly brought to tears by a complete strangers generosity. So many times in the bible we see and hear about the joy music brings to God. I love music! And can’t imagine how God feels when He hears one of His children playing. Expecially if they are playing with a gift of generosity!! God bless all of you and have a safe God filled weekend!
You can find this story and more at sunnyskyz news.

Fellowship Friday!

Hi everyone I am terribly sorry I missed last weeks fellowship Friday and almost missed this weeks. I don’t even have a good excuse. Simply put I forgot. My big brother (let’s just call him David because I don’t use real names) even reminded me last week, yet here we are. I apologize I am going to post two news stories in the links and will hopefully have something written tomorrow. Just an update on David, he is doing really well. He is still struggling a bit with what is going on, but he is really coping amazingly!!! I am so proud of him! He continues to thrive in school, like getting 95% and 100% on two of his three midterms!!! He is proof that when you put your mind to something despite your circumstances, you can not only do okay but kick serious butt!!! He continues to surprise me and make me proud!! I love that kid! Also despite what he has going on in his life he continues to have concern for me and never stops encouraging me to write, and tells me how talented I am, even though he is 10x the writer I am! I am sure he is reading this and saying he isn’t or to stop/shut up 😀 . Most of the time he reads my blogs just minutes after I post them and that means so much to me, he really can’t know just how much! I love you David!! Your an amazing brother and best friend!! God bless you all and your families and have a safe God filled weekend!!
