Out of the Mouth of Babes — An honest seven-year-old admitted calmly to her parents that Billy Brown had kissed her after class. “How did that happen? “gasped her mother. “It wasn’t easy,” admitted the young lady, “but three girls helped me catch him.”
Have Faith My Child — A nun who works for a local home health care agency was out making her rounds when she ran out of gas. As luck would have it there was a station just down the street. She walked to the station to borrow a can with enough gas to start the car and drive to the station for a fill up.
The attendant regretfully told her that the only can he owned had just been loaned out, but if she would care to wait he was sure it would be back shortly.
Since the nun was on the way to see a patient she decided not to wait and walked back to her car. After looking through her car for something to carry to the station to fill with gas, she spotted a bedpan she was taking to the patient. Always resourceful, she carried it to the station, filled it with gasoline, and carried it back to her car.
As she was pouring the gas into the tank of her car two men walked by. One of them turned to the other and said: “Now that is what I call faith!”

Follow Up: Smile challenge
The Do Better challenge for Feb. was to simply smile more. I shared two ways to accomplish this goal in February’s blog. My goal A: I wrote the word “smile” on an index card and put it on my bathroom mirror. I also made positive declarations whenever I smiled. My goal B: I smiled at a complete stranger at least once a day for 14 days.
Goal A: My declarations included the following:
- Girl you are beautiful!
- This is the day that the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it!
- I am victorious!
- God is good and He loves me!
I now feel good on the inside as I look in the mirror, smile, and make declarations. I feel better about myself. I don’t dread looking in the mirror. This goal is a keeper. 🙂
Goal B: This goal was interesting. There were those who gave me a big smile back. There were those who wouldn’t even look in my direction when I passed them. There were some who didn’t smile back.
I don’t know if anyone enjoyed my smiles, but I enjoyed giving them. This goal is also a keeper. 🙂
Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we will remember and trust in the name of the LORD our God. Psalm 20:7 Amplified Bible (AMP)
“Waiting for Me to work, with your eyes on Me, is evidence that you really do trust Me.” –Sarah Young
‘Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus (Hope this video blesses you.)
We all know the phrase: How you doing? My question to you is: Who you trusting? Or What are you trusting in? Many people trust in that pay check, their pension plan and/or life savings. We trust that when we sit down in a chair, it will hold our weight. We trust that when we get in the car and turn the switch, it will start. We trust that when we wake up in the morning, we’ll be able to get out of bed. We trust that when we eat in that restaurant, we won’t get food poisoning. We trust that our loved ones will always tell us the truth. We trust that our spouse will be faithful. We trust that when we go to the ATM, our money will be there.
There is only one person we can trust who well never fail us – Jesus Christ.
There are countless benefits of trusting in Jesus. Eternal life, rest, joy, peace, protection and provision are just are few of those benefits. He won’t leave us, nor forget about us. He always keeps His promises. He always provides.
We read in Jeremiah 17:7-8 Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the LORD is.
For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit. King James Version (KJV)
I can’t speak for you, but I want every benefit that is available to me. Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus!
The Do Better Challenge (if you choose)
Got Yogurt? Yogurt has many benefits.
- It’s easier to digest than milk.
- It may contribute to colon health.
- It’s a rich source of calcium.
- It may boost immunity.
- It’s an excellent source of protein.
- It may help lower cholesterol.
- It can decrease yeast infections.
- It may help prevent high blood pressure.
Not all yogurt is created equal, so know what you’re buying. The levels of calories, calcium, sugar, fat, vitamin D and protein will vary. Look for the words “live and active cultures” on the container.
Thanks so much for stopping by, taking the time to view the video and read all the nuggets.
Bye for now.
