O God, the strength of those who hope in you: Be present and hear our prayers; and, because in the weakness of our mortal nature we can do nothing good without you, give us the help of your grace, so that in keeping your commandments we may please you in will and deed; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
life… LIVE IT!!!
Well… It is what it is…
I AM CURIOUS… Why don’t they have one life insurance agent??? (IT IS LIFE INSURANCE)
May I share with you assurance of my eternal life (not life on earth)??? It is the belief in the WORDS and TESTIMONY of our Lord Jesus Christ written in the book of Mark… IT READS…
A House Divided Cannot Stand
20 Then the multitude came together again, so that they could not so much as eat bread. 21 But when His own people heard about this, they went out to lay hold of Him, for they said, “He is out of His mind.”
22 And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem said, “He has Beelzebub,” and, “By the ruler of the demons He casts out demons.”
23 So He called them to Himself and said to them in parables: “How can Satan cast out Satan? 24 If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. 25 And if a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand. 26 And if Satan has risen up against himself, and is divided, he cannot stand, but has an end. 27 No one can enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man. And then he will plunder his house.
The Unpardonable Sin
28 “Assuredly, I say to you, all sins will be forgiven the sons of men, and whatever blasphemies they may utter; 29 but he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is subject to eternal condemnation”— 30 because they said, “He has an unclean spirit.”
Jesus’ Mother and Brothers Send for Him
31 Then His brothers and His mother came, and standing outside they sent to Him, calling Him. 32 And a multitude was sitting around Him; and they said to Him, “Look, Your mother and Your brothers[a] are outside seeking You.”
33 But He answered them, saying, “Who is My mother, or My brothers?”34 And He looked around in a circle at those who sat about Him, and said, “Here are My mother and My brothers! 35 For whoever does the will of God is My brother and My sister and mother.”
LET’s GO. (church + doorknocks + running = ALLDAY)

MAY I SHARE WITH YOU A WRITING FROM PAUL, I WAS READING THIS MORNING, AFTER I RECITED THE APOSTLES CREED & SAID?.. GOD THE FATHER, THE SON, THE HOLY SPIRIT, WATCH OVER ME… (i also made a sign of the cross)
STARTED MY SPEECH FOR TOASTMASTERS BEFORE CALLING PEOPLE FOR MEETINGS THIS WEEKEND…
Attitude is a decision… First of all, I would like to thank all of my fellow toastmasters for being encouraging and inviting… Thank you.
Hi! I want to tell you a little about myself… I hope you will be receptive to my speech and please if you see an area in my speech in where I can improve… tell me… life is all about learning to me and I appreciate your constructive criticism.
WITH THAT SAID… I WANT TO TELL YOU A LITTLE ABOUT MYSELF…
I could go on for hours on this subject; however, for tonight’s speech I plan on sharing with you three snap shots in my life… These experiences shaped me to be the man I AM… Life has given me a lot of lemons… but I think lemonade tastes great! (LET’s BEGIN)
2200 miles away from home…
That’s right… I went to Arizona State University after I graduated from Hershey High in 1996… I wanted to see a new part of this awesome country… 2200 miles away… I saw and learned…
I was going for an undergraduate degree in international business… In an instant, the plan, I had, for my life changed. I was involved in a near fatal car accident 17 years ago… I had to relearn, how to talk, walk, swallow food… you know just about everything we take for granted…
My plan changed… what was going to be an Undergraduate Degree at Arizona State in International Business blossomed into a Graduate Degree in Business Administration from Penn State… THAT’s RIGHT… I finished my Undergraduate Degree and moved onto my Master’s Degree…
I want to share with you what I was reading this morning…
But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.
“LEMONADE TASTES GREAT!!!”
