Hands of God

A new year is about to begin and over this past month the Lord truly has been trying to show me something.
The key word is trying as I have been questioning as apposed to listening.
You know what I mean? Those unsure moments and
alot of Ya but's and what if's and Really?
My way is better for me but is it better for Him?
There are things that "I" have really wanted that are not going to come to pass this year.
Uganda being one of those "I wants"
Finding this reality hard to swallow and yet knowing in my heart it is not His timing.
I am glad God understands my dissapointment and holds me close when I cry at night.
I am glad He comforts me when I feel this is of my own doing and the guilt rises up and consumes my heart.
This year is now coming to an end and He has shown me that I am needed elsewhere.
Where and what is the question we all ask
but it is not the right question.
The question we should be asking is How may I be of service?
The answere was (for me) clean out His temple.
My body being His temple to dwell in.
This was also my answere to why my desires have been put on hold.
I am not healthy enough physically.
I have surgery coming up in February that will strengthen my body.
I am not spiritually ready for His tasks.
This year is a year for healing and spreading Peace among us.
Starting in our own backyards.
My backyard needs to be well manicured and all the weeds of dissapointment envy regret and holding grudges must be pulled from the muck and mire that has bogged down my heart these past few years.
The Lord has given me the tools to maintain His garden.
I've never been a gardener nor have I enjoyed it,although I do enjoy the benefits and beauty of a well taken care of garden.
Selfishness. You work I reap the benefits.
I am now looking forward to the joy of working His garden selflessly with our hands clasped together side by side.
I anticipate the beauty of this new year and all it holds for those I love.
For I am Gods hands
I am Gods eyes.
His will be done.
Not mine.
How He puts up with me sometimes?
God Only Knows.....

Thankyou for your Gift

Todays service was amazing.
What is the most precious thing you would give to our King?
God gave His only son Jesus to us
Jesus gave his life for us
The Holy spirit now lives in us.
US.... You and Me
Wow! the thought of such selflessness blows me away everytime I think of it.
This is a gift that keeps on giving through our amazing Pastors.
Kevin and Shari
Todd and Tammy
Mark and Rhonda
Barry and Tammy
and through the elders of our blessed church.
I have so much to be thankful for in every aspect of my life.
Without the Lord leading these fine people to spread His beautiful words of life,I may have not received this gift.
After service today I thought about what would I,me,little old average joe me,give to my King.
What do you give someone who has the whole world in His hands?
A Father that has everything.
I have decided to wholeheartedly throw out all that is not righteous and worthy of such a King and give Him all that I have.
My undying love for Him and my church family.
May God bless you all and thankyou for your support,teachings and words of wisdom this past year.
Merry Christmas

Angels Explained by Children

I only know the names of two angels, Hark and Harold.
-Gregory, 5

Everybody's got it all wrong. Angels don't wear halos anymore. I forget why, but scientists are working on it
-Olive, 9

It's not easy to become an angel! First, you die. Then you go to Heaven, and then there's still the flight training to go through. And then you got to agree to wear those angel clothes.
-Matthew, 9

Angels work for God and watch over kids when God has to go do something else.
-Mitchell, 7

My guardian angel helps me with math, but he's not much good for science.
-Henry, 8

Angels don't eat, but they drink milk from Holy Cows!!!
-Jack, 6

Angels talk all the way while they're flying you up to heaven. The main subject is where you went wrong before you got dead.
-Daniel, 9

When an angel gets mad, he takes a deep breath and counts to ten. And when he lets out his breath, somewhere there's a tornado.
-Reagan, 10

Angels have a lot to do and they keep very busy. If you lose a tooth, an angel comes in through your window and leaves money under your pillow. Then when it gets cold, angels go south for the winter.
-Sara, 6

Angels live in cloud houses made by God and his son, who's a very good carpenter.
-Jared, 8

All angels are girls because they gotta wear dresses and boys didn't go for it.
-Antonio, 9

My angel is my grandma who died last year. She got a big head start on helping me while she was still down here on earth.
- , 9

Some of the angels are in charge of helping heal sick animals and pets. And if they don't make the animals get better, they help the child get over it.
-Vicki, 8

What I don't get about angels is why, when someone is in love, they shoot arrows at them.
-Sarah, 7

And The Angels Cried

They came from near
They came from far
Following a distance star to where He lay
Not being sure of what it meant,
but knowing it was heaven sent
They made their way

And the creatures gathered 'round
And didn't make a sound
And the Angels cried

The angels knew what was to come
The reason God had sent His Son
From up above
It filled their hearts with joy to see
and Knowing of His destiny
Came tears of love

And the creatures gathered 'round
And didn't make a sound
And the Angels cried

I've often thought about that night
And wondered if they realized
That star so bright
Was sent to tell all the land
The Son of God would soon become
The Son of Man

And the creatures gathered 'round
And didn't make a sound
And the Angels Cried
And the Angels Cried
And the Angels Cried

Best Christmas Present Ever

As some of you may know my grandson Myer is Autistic.
Myer is 4 years old and will be 5 at the end of January.
Myer was diagnosed at the age of 2.
He rated moderate in his speech and very high on behaviour.
My daughter Liane knew in her heart that something was wrong and was very persistant with the doctors. She and her husband Luke worked very hard with Myer in his speech and behaviour.
They refused to have him treated as if different.
Myer was enrolled like "Normal" children in sport activities.
There were times when he definately was treated as an outcast,but his parents persevered through looks of disgust and under the breath comments.
Liane often asked why God would do this?
" Mom you said God makes no mistakes?" this was asked when having a rough day.
"He doesn't Honey,God chose you and Luke to raise Myer and Mackenzie and nobody else in the world could do this. He chose you." was always my response.
I am so proud of my daughter and her husband. Their patience is amazing.
Trust me as a Gilbey when we lack patience it's mahem in the household.
Liane is no exception. She gets that from me.
However through prayer I have asked that the Lord give us all patience and healing in our family.
Well God is soooo Great.
He has taught us to be patient during the past 3 years and has now given us the
Myer has finished going through intensive behaviour therapy and had to have another assessment.
The results have come back.
Praise you Lord for covering us with Your love and patience with my family,but most of all the healing of my grandson.
This truly is a Merry Christmas
