The 5 fingure prayer!!!!

1. Your thumb is nearest you. So begin your prayers by praying for those closest to you. They are the easiest to remember.

To pray for our loved ones is, as C. S. Lewis once said, a "sweet duty."

2. The next finger is the pointing finger. Pray for those who teach, instruct and heal.

This includes teachers, doctors, and ministers. They need support and wisdom in pointing others in the right direction.

Keep them in your prayers.

3. The next finger is the tallest finger. It reminds us of our leaders. Pray for the president, leaders in business and industry, and administrators. These people shape our nation and guide public opinion.

They need God's guidance.

4. The fourth finger is our ring finger. Surprising to many is the fact that this is our weakest finger, as any piano teacher will testify. It should remind us to pray for those who are weak, in trouble or in pain.

They need your prayers day and night.

You cannot pray too much for them.

5. And lastly comes our little finger - the smallest finger of all which is where we should place ourselves in relation to God and others. As the Bible says, "The least shall be the greatest among you." Your pinkie should remind you to pray for yourself. By the time you have prayed for the other four groups, your own needs will be put into proper perspective and you will be able to pray for yourself more effectively.

A Canvas!!!

Life is like a Canvas
Made up of many Threads
But strength of the woven Creation
Depends on Jesus and being Spirit led.

We must Weave Jesus into our Heart
And let Him be Lord of our Life,
He will fill every part with the Thread of His Love,
And take away all Sin and Strife.

With a scarlet Cord of His crimson Blood
He has woven Love throughout His Word
From Genesis to Revelation,
The Gospel is the sweetest Story ever heard.

With Jesus as the Vine in our Life
We are entwined to the source of Power,
He will be with Us in all of His Love
To Lead and Guide us every
Moment and Hour.

Hope you have a good day!!!!

A mom was concerned about her kindergarten son walking to school. He didn't want his mother to walk with him. She wanted to give him the feeling that he had some independence but yet know that he was safe.

So she had an idea of how to handle it. She asked a neighbor, Mrs. Goodnest, if she would please follow him to school in the mornings, staying at a distance, so he probably wouldn't notice her.

Mrs. Goodnest said that since she was up early with her toddler anyway, it would be a good way for them to get some exercise as well, so she agreed.

The next school day, Mrs. Goodnest and her little girl, Marcy, set out following behind Timmy as he walked to school with another neighbor boy he knew. She did this for the whole week

.As the boys walked and chatted, kicking stones and twigs, Timmy's little friend noticed the same lady was following them as she seemed to do every day all week.

Finally he said to Timmy, "Have you noticed that lady following us to school all week? Do you know her?
"Timmy nonchalantly replied, "Yeah, I know who she is".

The friend said, "Well, who is she"?

"That's just Shirley Goodnest", Timmy replied, "and her daughter Marcy".

"Shirley Goodnest? Who is she and why is she following us"?

"Well", Timmy explained, "every night my Mom makes me say the 23rd Psalm with my prayers, 'cuz she worries about me so much. And in the Psalm, it says, 'Shirley Goodnest and Marcy shall follow me all the days of my life', so I guess I'll just have to get used to it"!

May Shirley Goodnest and Marcy be with you today, and always.

Jumpin Thursday!!!
