I am reading a wonderful book entitled "Try Giving Yourself Away" by David Dunn written in 1947. It's is a delightful book so far! For me, the name of Jesus will definitely be included in any jewels given this week. : )
Following is an excerpt keep in mind this was written in 1947!
These are troubled times. The world is full of strife and heartache. Men and women everywhere seek peace of mind and heart, and wish desperately that they as individuals could do something toward lifting the heavy blanket of gloom and fear that oppresses mankind.
Perhaps you and I can help. More than anything else, the world needs the healing influence of a great surge of simple kindheartedness, to rid humanity of jealousy, selfishness and greed. Such a surge must start with us, as individuals; it is beyond the power of the world's rulers or statesmen. In our daily living we average citizens must establish the spirit and set the pattern of a kindlier world.
I invite you to join me in my hobby. ~DAVID DUNN
That's enough for now, maybe next time I blog I'll share things my dad did for others that I keenly observed when I was a little girl and beyond...God's blessings to All.
Let me know if you tried this this week, I would love to hear your jewels of giving of yourself to others! I hope to post excerpts as well soon, if you are interested. : ) Maybe we'll get on a roll! I hope so! What's our Heart Shot? May God be glorified!
May we be praying about ways to be jewels to others (strangers, little children, compliments to managers on store windows and the window dressers, ideas for companies, notes of encouragement, unappreciated moms and dads of friends, discouraged businessmen etc.) ...Sweet surprises this week, just think how enriching this would make our own lives by blessing others daily at least once?
P.S. Maybe some of you would like to know what my daughters are up to these days? A sweet blogging friend suggested this, and I thought I'd get a raise of hands on it. I've homeschooled for going on 23 years, my baby is 18 and graduating this year. When I started homeschooling it was up in the air in the courts. Oh that homeschooling would come back to the beautiful, sweet Christian roots in many a support group.

Description: A gospel is being preached that is withering everything that is in sight. Everything that is green and Godly and pure is being withered. The seed is rotten - there is a famine of hearing the pure Word of the Lord.... there is no pasture. The flocks are desolate and hungry. The rivers are drying up. A strange fire is devouring the pastors. Ezekiel says that Shepherds are trampling down the good pasture and eating the best for themselves. What are the shameful disgraceful things that are happening in the Church of Jesus Christ today?
Today Dh and I heard this sermon: It's Time to Get Right With God
You can also find many, many excellent David Wilkerson sermons at the above site as well as Sermonindex.net.
Hope everyone is having a nice Sunday eve. I think sites like World Challenge and Sermonindex.net are wonderful in these last days.

Let's be kind bloggers with integrity. You can fool some of the people some of the time but you can't fool God. Some people just don't seem very kind or thoughtful, perhaps even respecters of persons in their blogging habits, who they link to or lack to link to etc.? Perhaps I'm being transparent but that's just me. An old homeschooling bud told me once....Amelia you are very honest... As far as I'm concerned it's the only way. : )
Don't mean to sound fussy, but I sure become disappointed sometimes...
Thanking God for the friends who glean from this blog who do have that integrity and fortitude to stand with who and what is right unto the Lord and not be ashamed of blogging partners and friends. : )

HITS THE NAIL ON THE HEAD
"The ancient Pharisees, in spite of their zealous devotion to religion, were of the very essence of the world. The spiritual principles upon which they built their system were drawn not from above but from below. They employed against Jesus the tactics of men. They bribed men to tell lies in defense of truth. To defend God they acted like devils. To support the Bible they defied the teachings of the Bible. They scuttled religion to save religion. They gave rein to blind hate in the name of the religion of love. There we see the world in all of its grim defiance of God. So fierce was this spirit that it never rested till it had put to death the Son of God Himself. The spirit of the Pharisees was actively and maliciously hostile to the Spirit of Jesus as each was a kind of distillation of the two worlds from whence they came."
~God's Pursuit of Man by A.W. Tozer
A Word in Season. Dr. A.W. Tozer
I think I'll let Dr. Tozer tell it like it is. He's with the Lord now and was obviously much older and wiser than I. Oh that some would grasp what he has to say and put away arrogance, pride, and the thankless attitudes that often accompany this Phariseeical spirit. The blind hate is very common in the Phariseeical spirit today we have found. It's the same warped hate that put Christ on the cross. If your children are more interested in pet doctrine than a personal relationship with Jesus - beware.
But the Pharisees said, He casteth out devils through the prince of the devils. ~Matthew 9:34
Have a JESUS filled week,
Love in Him, ~Amelia

We have got to lay our lives down for the purposes of God.
This is a war for the souls of man! Come out from among them!
Run for your life! Because this is about your life! It's not just about an imposing theology or conflicting viewpoint...This is about your life!
Run from churches where men are glorified and not Christ!
If you come into the House of God and you have sin in your life and you are not convicted of it you're at a table of devils.
To hear more sermons by Carter Conlon, the late David Wilkerson and others see: http://www.sermonindex.net/
This is a partial re-post from 2009. The Lord quickened me to post this again. This is a message from Carter Conlon assistant pastor to the late David Wilkerson from Time Square Church in New York.
May we hang together and hold on tight in prayers encouraging one another. I'm shocked by the deception I've seen lately. The Bible says be careful brethren lest you be deceived.
Love in Christ, ~Amelia

"Yes, this article is going to make a lot of people uncomfortable, but it is the truth."
"’Isn't it time that someone started telling the truth in America?"
19 Facts About Abortion in America That Should Make You Very Sick
My daughter just put this up on her facebook. The least I can do is put it on my blogspot here...Time's a wasting. So much I could write here, but I think the article says plenty.
