Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

enough snow...

Had enough snow?

Friends of ours went to Jamaica recently...
no snow there.
At one of the restaurants they ate breakfast,
was this peacock. We were told...

“His name is Henry and he roosts
on the roof above the main restaurant.
He annoys the servers.
We rather liked him especially
when he fanned his gorgeous feathers
(or are they plumes).
He comes down off the roof in the morning
when we and others had breakfast.
Loved to strut around the tables
and hoped to get whatever
dropped on the boards there.”

We all have our good points
and our bad ones.
None of us, like Henry are perfect.
Perhaps we ought to concentrate
on the good in everything
and trust in God.

"The longer I live, the more I realize
the impact of attitude on life.
Attitude, to me, is more important than facts.
It is more important than the past,
than education, than money, than circumstances,
than failures, than successes,
than what other people think or say or do.
It is more important than appearance,
giftedness or skill.
It will make or break a company...a church....a home.
The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day
regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.
We cannot change our past...
we cannot change the fact that people
will act in a certain way.
We cannot change the inevitable.
The only thing we can do is play
on the one string we have,
and that is our attitude...
I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me
and 90% how I react to it.
And so it is with you...
we are in charge of our attitudes.”
