Easter is a new begining.
The flowers are blooming
in the BoysTown prayer garden already.
May the love of Jesus bloom in your heart today.

"This is the day the Lord has made;
let us be glad and rejoice in it."
Psalms 118:24

Expect great things today.
The risen Lord Jesus be with you.
All things are possible to them that believe!

(March 30, 1997 6:35 AM CST)

Happy Easter to you!
The sun is shining bright
and there is not a cloud in the sky.
I wish for you many blessings
on this holy day.
Jesus died and then rose from the dead.
He has power over life and death.
He said to the disciples,
"Peace to you."
Luke 24:36
Yes, may there be peace in your life.
May there be peace in the world.

He is risen!

(March 29, 1997 6:35 AM CST)

Tomorrow is Easter.
Today we wait and wonder.
The first disciples also waited.
They did not know that Easter was tomorrow.
They could not understand why Jesus had to die.
He had the power to do about anything.
He calmed the storm on the sea.
He raised people from the dead.
He gave sight to the blind.
They wondered.
They waited.
There is a mystery to God.
Why does he do things a certain way?
"My thoughts are not your thoughts,
nor are your ways my ways,
says the Lord."
Isaiah 55:8

Why were you born?
You are here for a reason.
You are here for a purpose.
God is calling you.
Spend some time today wondering...
and waiting.

(March 28, 1997 6:28 AM CST)

It is Good Friday today.
We remember that Jesus suffered and died on the cross.
Why do they call it 'good' if Jesus died?
He died, so that you could live.
He conquered sin and death.
We no longer have to fear death.
Jesus has given us eternal life.

Jesus said (from the cross),
"Father, forgive them;
they do not know what they are doing."
Luke 23:34

Here is a picture of Jesus .
He loved us a lot.

(March 27, 1997 6:26 AM CST)

Today is Holy Thursday.
We remember Jesus at the Last Supper.
He said,
"Do this in remembrance of me."
Luke 22:19
I wonder sometimes about why Jesus had
to come to earth and suffer and die as he did.
Couldn't there have been some other way to
redeem the world from sin?
God must have wanted to show how much
he loves us.
He loved you and me that much---
that he died on the cross.
Thank you, Jesus.

(March 26, 1997 6:27 AM CST)

Last night I took a drive west of Omaha to see the Hale-Bopp Comet .
If you have not seen it yet, go out tonight at about 8 PM and just watch it in the northwest sky.
It is beautiful!
We thank you, Lord, for such a beautiful sight.
The tails keep changing patterns.

(March 25, 1997 6:27 AM CST)

Good morning!
Easter is quickly approaching.
Are you prepared for so great of an event?

The other day I found some beautiful pictures of the Grand Canyon . It is amazing what God has made.

(March 24, 1997 6:27 AM CST)

This morning there is rain, thunder and lightning.
Give praise and thanks to God this day.
He is in control.
Place your trust in him.
Jesus is the way, the truth and the life.

(March 23, 1997 7:22 AM CST)

Today is Palm Sunday.

"A great crowd that had come
for the feast heard
that Jesus was to enter Jerusalem,
so they got palm branches
and came out to meet him.
They kept shouting:
Blessed is he who comes
in the name of the Lord!
Blessed is the king of Israel!'"
John 12:12-13

I pray that you have a blessed Holy Week.
May you gain eternal life one day
because Jesus suffered and died for you.

(March 22, 1997 6:19 AM CST)

We thank the Lord for answering our prayers.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart.
The Lord is faithful and kind.
Jesus will forgive all your sins.
God's abundant grace is there for you.
All you have to do is ask.

(March 21, 1997 6:00 AM CST)

We thank the Lord for a beautiful
70 degree F day yesterday.
The Lord is so good to us.
Seek the Lord while he may be found.
Call on the name of Jesus today.
He will help you.
He is your best friend.

(March 20, 1997 6:17 AM CST)

Today is the first day of Spring (at 7:56 AM).
Spring back to life with Jesus.
Come home.
It should be a beautiful day.

(March 19, 1997 6:20 AM CST)

I'm listening to a song on the radio by Cheri Keaggy . We are a "Child of the Father".

It should be a nice mild warm Spring day today.
Enjoy it.
All good gifts come from Heaven above.

(March 18, 1997 6:22 AM CST)

Your strength is in the Lord.
Do not rely on your own resources.
God will provide all that you need.
Call on the name of the Lord.
Be with us this day, O Lord.
Help us.

(March 17, 1997 6:24 AM CST)

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Lately I'm been reading the book "When God Whispers Your Name" by Max Lucado . He is a very good writer.

"Rejoice in the Lord always!
I say it again.
Everyone should see how unselfish you are.
The Lord is near.
Dismiss all anxiety from your minds.
Present your needs to God in every form of prayer
and in petitions full of gratitude.
Then God's own peace,
which is beyond all understanding,
will stand guard over your hearts and minds,
in Christ Jesus."
Philippians 4:4-7

We call on the name of Jesus to save us.
Place your trust in him.
He is the way, truth and life.

"I solemnly assure you,
the man who hears my word
and has faith in him who sent me
possesses eternal life.
He does not come under condemnation,
but has passed from death to life."
John 5:24

(March 12, 1997 6:21 AM CST)

Give thanks to the Lord with a grateful heart.
Give praise to his name.
Think about the wonderful things that he has done.
Share his love with all that you meet.

(March 11, 1997 6:21 AM CST)

I hope you got a chance to see the Billy Graham TV programs last week or will watch it this week.
He asked the question:
What is the value of your soul?

(March 10, 1997 6:22 AM CST)

Yesterday there was a total eclipse of the sun over China and they also could see the Hale-Bopp Comet at the same time in the darkened sky. Now that would have been something to see!

(March 9, 1997 7:31 AM CST)

"In Christ and through faith in him

Hence, I beg you not to be disheartened

they are your glory."

Peter one day asked Jesus,
"When my brother wrongs me,
how many times must I forgive him?
Seven times?"

I say, seventy times seven times."

(March 5, 1997 5:51 AM CST)

The big news in Omaha is that an Interstate 680 bridge was destroyed a few days ago. A truck carrying an 80,000 pound transformer was too tall for the bridge. The bridge was damaged so badly that they tore half of it down. It reminds me of the story I wrote titled "The Bridge is Out" .

Welcome and God bless you my friend.

We start a new month with hope and a prayer.
Lord, be with us and guide us.
Help us to do your will.

The world can be a better place.
You can make a difference.
It is as simple as thinking of others instead of yourself.
Ask yourself each day:
"What can I do for someone else today?"
This will make a world of difference.

Today I'm going to work on my taxes. In the USA you need to fill out a tax statement by April 15th and send it to the IRS . This year I think I'm getting a refund.
