I believe the Lord would have me share with you. It certainly IS food for thought:

And it’s winter before we know it….


You know, time has a way of moving quickly and catching you unaware of
the passing years. It seems just yesterday that I was young.
And yet in a way, it seems like eons ago, and I wonder where all the years went.
know that I lived them all…
And I have glimpses of how it was back then and of all my hopes and dreams…
But, here it is..the winter of my life and it catches me by surprise…
How did I get here so fast?
Where did the years go. And where did my youth go?
I remember well.. seeing older people through the years and thinking
that those older people were years away from me and that winter was so far off
that I could not fathom it or imagine fully what it would be like…
But, here it is . . .
my friends are retired and really getting gray… they move slower
and I see an older person now.
Lots are in better shape than me… but, I see the great change…
Not like the ones that I remember who were young and vibrant…
but, like me, their age is beginning to show and we are now those
older folks that we used to see and never thought we’d be.
Words left unsaid to tell them
you love them.
Each day now, I find that just getting a shower is a real
target for my day! And taking a nap is not a treat anymore…it’s mandatory!
Cause if I don’t on my own free will…
I just fall asleep where I sit!
And so, now I enter into this new season of my life unprepared for
all the aches and pains and the loss of strength and ability to go and
do things that I wish I had done but never did!!
But, at least I know,
that though the winter has come, and I’m not sure how long it will last…
this I know, that when it’s over… its over….Yes , I have regrets.
There are things I wish I hadn’t done ,,,,,
things I should have done, but indeed, there are many things I’m
happy to have done. It’s all in a lifetime….
So, if you’re not in your winter yet…let me remind you,
that it will be here faster than you think. So, whatever you would
like to accomplish in your life please do it quickly! Don’t put things
off too long!!


A smile is a gift that warms the heart!!
A hug does wonders for the soul!!
Life goes by quickly. So, do what you can today, as you
can never be sure whether this is your winter or not!
You have no promise that you will see all the seasons
of your life…so, live for God today and say and do all the things that you
want your loved ones to remember…
and let them know that you appreciate and love them for all the things that they
have done for you in all the years past!!
“Life is a gift to you.
The way you live your life is your gift to those who come after.
Make it a fantastic one.”
LOVE JESUS!!!!!!!!

What do you think?


“Life is beautiful, live it well!”

. . . HUGS . . . SMILES . . .

“Life is nothing without the
sweetness of Love!”


I’m thankful for each season, whatever it may bring.
The snowflakes in the winter, or the bluebells in the Spring.

I’m thankful for the Summer, the flowers in pastel colors blue, pink, yellow so softly refrain.
Jesus is the one who makes the sun to shine, then showers us with drops of rain.

I’m thankful for the Autumn, the leaves orange, and rest in colors bright.
I’m thankful for each Pumpkin carved, the first new day that brings a Child’s delight.

It matters not the time of year, with beauty of the green grass, or skies with colors of blue and grays.
Beautiful seasons which ere it may be, it has been painted by God in his own perfect way.

There is no time like the present. Today is the day of Salvation, saith the Lord.
As today’s message points out; we are not promised another season, dear ones.


What say you?

“Life is precious, handle with PRAYER!”
