"May he strengthen you inwardly
through the working of his Spirit.
May Christ dwell in your hearts through faith,
and may charity be the root
and foundation of your life."
Ephesians 3:16-17

Jesus, send your Holy Spirit to us.
We need help.
We need your faith.
Come and dwell in our hearts.

Someone I used to work with called yesterday.
She asked for prayers for two members
of her family that have cancer.
God be with all of them and comfort them.

Jesus said,
"All this I tell you
that my joy may be yours
and your joy may be complete.
This is my commandment:
love one another
as I have loved you.
There is no greater love than this:
to lay down one's life for one's friends."
John 15:11-13

Jesus gave his life for us.
He is our best friend.
He loves you very much.
May joy be yours today.

Jesus said,
"This is the time of fulfillment.
The reign of God is at hand!
Reform your lives and believe in the gospel!"
Mark 1:15

Now is the time.
There is no time like today.
Check out Jesus.
See who he is.
See what Christmas is all about.

Jesus said,
"You will receive all that you pray for,
provided you have faith."

You are watching over us.
Thank you for your many gifts.

"Rather, become holy yourselves
in every aspect of your conduct,
after the likeness of the holy One
who called you;
remember, Scripture says,
'Be holy, for I am holy.'"
1 Peter 1:15-16

God calls us to holiness.
We are to be like him.
We need to stay close to him.
Help us, Lord, to be holy.
We want to be like you.

One of the people I work with went to
Costa Rica on a missionary trip.
Pray for her and her group.
God bless them and the people they meet.

Last night I watched the movie
March of the Penguins .
It was on the Discovery Channel.
It is a story of survival.
I was thinking of building them a shelter
to survive the harsh winter,
but they don't need me.
They kept traveling 70 miles back and forth
to get something to eat.
Very interesting.

"We are truly his handiwork,
created in Christ Jesus
to lead the life of good deeds
which God prepared for us in advance."
Ephesians 2:10

We are made by God.
We should reflect the infinite.
We will survive.
We will accomplish great things.
He has prepared us for greatness.

"I received from the Lord
what I handed on to you, namely,
that the Lord Jesus on the night
in which he was betrayed took bread,
and after he had given thanks,
broke it and said,
'This is my body, which is for you.
Do this in remembrance of me.'
In the same way, after the supper,
he took the cup, saying,
'This cup is the new covenant in my blood.
Do this, whenever you drink it,
in remembrance of me.'
Every time, then, you eat this bread
and drink this cup, you proclaim
the death of the Lord until he comes!"
1 Corinthians 11:23-26

Holy Communion is a gift.
We remember that Jesus died for us.
He arose from the dead.
We have life in him.
We look for his return.

(November 23, 2007 Fri 8:12 AM CST)

My right arm has been hurting for a few days.
I slept on it wrong one night.
Pray for me.
Lord, heal my arm.

Jesus replied to the Samaritan woman,
"If only you recognized God's gift,
and who it is that is asking you for a drink,
you would have asked him instead,
and he would have given you living water."
John 4:10

We are thirsty.
Jesus has living water.
We should ask him for this wonderful gift.
We need to recognize him.

(November 22, 2007 Thu 7:27 AM CST)

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
We have much to be thankful for.
I just baked an apple crumb pie.
It was bubbling in 3 or 4 places.

Jesus asked,
"When I broke the 7 loaves for the 4,000,
how many full hampers of fragments did you collect?"
They answered, "Seven."
He said to them again,
"Do you still not understand?"
Mark 8:20-21

God is very good to us.
He gives us many things.
His gifts are overflowing.
Thank you, Jesus.
You are wonderful.

I just love this song by Darlene Zschech and Hillsong.
Here I Am to Worship .
Sing along with the words.

"Praise the Lord, O my soul;
I will praise the Lord all my life;
I will sing praise to my God while I live."
Psalms 146:1-2

Sing songs of praise.
Sing songs to God.
Worship the Lord.
Give praise to him.
He is wonderful.

"Jesus Christ is the same
yesterday, today, and forever."
Hebrews 13:8

You buy a diamond because diamonds are forever.
Jesus is like that.
He will be around a long time
even after time has ended.
Learn about him today.
Be with him forever.

"May the God of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Father of glory,
grant you a spirit of wisdom and
insight to know him clearly.
May he enlighten your innermost vision
that you may know the great hope
to which he has called you,
the wealth of his glorious heritage
to be distributed among
the members of the church,
and the immeasurable scope
of his power in us who believe."
Ephesians 1:17-19

May you know the Lord clearly.
May you see the glory of God.
May you have wisdom and insight.
God be with you this day and always.
Be thankful this week for all
that the Lord has done for you.

It's trying to rain outside.
It has not rained in a long time in Omaha.

Jesus said,
"Do not let your hearts be troubled.
Have faith in God
and faith in me."
John 14:1

Stay calm.
Trust in Jesus.
He is in control.
Have faith in him.

I can't get a new copy of the statistics page to save.
I have tried it over and over.
IE7 sometimes has problems saving HTML pages.
I must still be sick.
I have been sick for a week.
I am better now.
I don't need to take any medicine.
It is like I died and came back to life.
It gives you a different perspective.
And all this is happening and I'm trying
to get used to the CPAP machine.
I think it did help me when I was sick.
It kept the breathing working correctly.

Last night I went to the new COSTCO
in Omaha at 124th and Dodge.
I had to have my picture taken for my membership card.
The guy behind the counter said 15,000 people have memberships now.
I ran into two people that I have not seen in many years.
I remembered one of their names and not the other.
It has been over 22 years since I have seen him.
I recognized his voice.
He was there with his wife and 4 grandkids.
The parents of the kids went to Estes Park for the weekend.
God bless them all.

Jesus said,
"My sheep hear my voice.
I know them,
and they follow me."
John 10:27

Maybe it has been 22 years since you have talked to Jesus.
He is still there.
He is alive and well.
Say Hi.
Stop and chat awhile.
Get to know him again.
He came back to life for you.

to our fathers through the prophets;
in this, the final age,
he has spoken to us through his Son,
whom he has made heir of all things
and through whom he first created the universe."
Hebrews 1:1-2

Jesus spoke to us.

Jesus taught,
"One who lights a lamp
does not put it in the cellar
or under a bushel basket,
but rather on a lampstand,
so that they who come in
may see the light."
Luke 11:33

You know how important light is.
We just went off Daylight Savings Time.
It is darker in the evening.
You don't see as much.
You need light in your life.
That light is Jesus.
He is the light of the world.

(November 13, 2007 Tue 7:47 AM CST)

at Bergan Mercy Hospital in Omaha.
It will help me sleep at night.
Then I caught a cold and fever
attacking the leaves yesterday with the lawn mower.
I should have worn a dust mask.

there was silence in heaven
for about half an hour.

'What little sense you have!
How slow you are to believe
all that the prophets have announced!
Did not the Messiah have to undergo all this
so as to enter into his glory?'"

Yesterday at work I started Windows 98 Second Edition
in a Virtual Machine.
It set the clock back one hour for Daylight Savings Time.
Oops. (I see this word a lot in crossword puzzles.)
The virtual machine was one hour different
than the time on the local machine.
Another thing that crossword puzzles
like is ASIDE and BSIDE (or is it SIDEA and SIDEB?).
See 20-Across for Oct 31, 2007 .
Clue: Less promising of two songs.
These are the sides of an old 45 RPM vinyl record.
There was one song on each side.

Romans 11:29

God calls all people.
You are invited to the feast.
He gives you many gifts.

Get in the same time zone with God.

and find pasture."
