Families…..

 
 I ran into a stranger as he passed by,”Oh excuse me please”
 was my reply. He said, “Please excuse me too;
 I wasn’t watching for you.”
We were very polite, this stranger and I,
Then we went on our way as we said goodbye.
 
Talking 9

 
But at home a different story is told,
how we treat our loved ones, young and old.
 
Later that day, cooking the evening meal,
My son stood beside me very still, when I turned,
 I nearly knocked him down.
“Move out of the way,” I said with a frown.
 
 
 He walked away, his little heart-broken.
I didn’t realize how harshly I’d spoken.
 
While I lay awake in bed,
God’s still small voice came to me and said,
“While dealing with a stranger, common courtesy you use,
but the family you love, you seem to abuse which
 when you do you are also abusing me.
 
 Go and look on the kitchen floor, you’ll find some flowers there by the door.  Those are the flowers he brought for you, he picked them himself…pink, red, purple, yellow and blue.
 
He stood very quietly not to spoil the surprise, you never saw the tears that filled his little eyes.”By this time, I felt very small,and now my tears began to fall.  I quietly went and knelt by his bed; “Wake up, little one, wake up”, I said.

“Are these the flowers you picked for me?”
 He smiled, “I found ‘em, out by the tree. I picked ‘em because they’re pretty like you, I knew you’d like ‘em, especially the blue.”

 I said, “Son, I’m very sorry for the way I acted today;
I shouldn’t have yelled at you that way.” he said…
“Oh, Mom, that’s okay, I Love you anyway.”
I said, “Son, I Love you too, and I do like the flowers,
especially the blue.”

Are you aware that if we died tomorrow, the company that we are working for could easily replace us in a matter of days? But the family we left behind will feel the loss in many ways for the rest of their lives.

And come to think of it, we give more time and  pour ourselves into work and the things of this world money, power, popularity entertainment, than into the things that matter, like the Lord our Husbands and Wives, own Family and Friends.

 So what is behind the Story? Do you know what the word

Family means? 
 
 Family = (F)ather (A)nd (M)other (I) (L)ove (Y)ou

We also have our Christian Church Family…
                  Church Family = Christ + His Body + Unity +                  Righteousness + Charity (meaning Love)  + Hope
 
Chures clr 
And we are a Family — Our Heavenly Father, the Protector, the Provider, the Comforter, the Nurturer, and we are His Redeemed Children, and He Loves each of us and calls us by name. Our Lord draws us to Him with compassion and understanding healing and restoring us.

The Garden Sanctuary …..

  The Garden Sanctuary Rest
 
Jesus is our Sanctuary, our refuge, our Eternal Hope and Rest, He is The Living Word, our Solid Rock and He is our Light in The Darkness, being filled with Him means we never thirst and  His food satisfies our Souls and than with being filled our Joy overflows even in times of sadness because we know we are not alone.
 
Isaiah 43:1-3 – Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.”
 
This Post is for us to share openly with each other, to ask for prayer, express our needs or our doubts or how we have been blessed and also to share  what Jesus has been Teaching us by the empowering of The Holy Spirit,  remembering we are  His Body and we are to be of one mind and not be  in division but in Loving Unity, so if needed let’s resolve our differences together as we seek Him for guidance.
 
1 Corinthians 1: 10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
 
Below is  some of the Scriptures that have great meaning for me , if you would like me to add one for you that has also touched your heart please include the reference for it in your comment and if wanted share why it has special meaning for you. I have also included a Power Point below with  wonderful Scripture that describes  how Awesome, Jesus our King is.
 
John 13:34   A new Commandment I give unto you, That ye Love one another; as I have Loved you, that ye also Love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my Disciples, if ye have Love one to another.
 
Galatians 6:2 Bear ye one another’s burdens and so fulfil the law of Christ.
 
Romans 12:14-15 Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. Be of the same mind one toward another.
 
Hebrews 19:24 And let us consider one another in order to stir up Love and good works.
 
Luke 17: 3-4 Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him. And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.
 
2 Corinthians 1:3-5 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
 
Philippians 2:4-6 Look not every man/woman on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
 
Galatians 24 -26 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts, if we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.
 
Philippians 2:1-3 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of Love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same Love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than themselves.
 
1 Peter 3:7-9 Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, Love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous:
 
Romans 8:28.And we know that in all things and always God works for the good of those who Love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.
 Jeremiah 29 :11-12 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a Hope.
 
Psalm 37:4-5  Delight thyself also in the LORD and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the LORD Trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass.
 
Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the Children of men.

Sausage Orphanage

  I have something Special to share with you, I have been very  excited  for a few weeks, I was on the way to do my shopping
on my Mobility Scooter 145 Mobility Scooter which helps me manage as I’m unable to walk for very long without having painful feet and shopping is something I really enjoy as I meet lots of friendly, interesting people, most are very caring and help me when I can’t reach things and sometimes our conversations lead to my sharing how very much God Loves them and also His healings and many blessings in my life, it really is a special time that I look forward to each week. 
 sausages-3
I was just about to enter Woolworths, when  I could smell Sausages cooking, yum, yum, when your hungry they do indeed smell sooooo good, I had been wondering what to have for lunch as I hadn’t packed anything, so I ordered a Sausage sandwich and as I was waiting I started talking to the very  friendly Lady selling them, well I haven’t been the same since… This amazing woman, Alissa Hill has a heart so big she left me speechless and believe me that’s saying something unique, those who know the length of my comments have probably worked out I also enjoy talking and those I have talked to on the Phone in America, have no doubts about it, I am indeed an Evangelist but as Alissa shared why she was having a Sausage Sizzle all I could do was nod and smile, but I wanted to shout Praise The Lord! I felt so much Joy it was overflowing, I am so very touched by Alissa’s story, I just have to share it with all of you and ask for your help too.
  alissa-2
  Alissa Hill
 Alissa’s Children had grown up and being a qualified Counsellor, with a very caring heart as you will see, she wanted to Adopt a Child but was unable to because being a single Mum didn’t meet Queensland’s requirements for overseas Adoption, so because Alissa having always wanted to help those in need even as a child, underprivileged Children became her focus and is was what motivated her to decide to care for needy Children in Nepal.
nepali-slum-1
 Nepal is one of the poorest Countries in the World with one of the highest rates of infant mortality and child trafficking. Up to 12000, girls a year are stolen and sent to brothels in India and abroad, many woman and children live miserable lives suffering sickness and severe malnutrition, they have no opportunity for a future and  their pagan gods offer no help but you are reading this because our God cares deeply, His heart is breaking as he witnesses the helplessness of His suffering Children…
 alissas-children-18
Some of Alissa’s Children

 We can make a difference, we can bring health, Love, Joy, Hope and Peace where there is now none for many of these Children unless they are cared for by someone like Alissa or others who have a caring heart.
 alisa-and-the-children
 Alissa and a few of the Children, Hmmmm
Someone wants to play with the Toys.
I will Post again with all the details of how Alissa started her Sausage Orphanage last year in November and her wonderful plans for it to increase and  become self-supporting and most important for the Children to have Schooling, which means they won’t be targeted for Child Trafficking. I will also post more pictures of the Children and those who Care for them. The Orphanage is called Sunshine Children’s Home Nepal,  which I’m sure will bring much Sunshine to many Children. 
Alissa has raised the money to start her Orphanage by Donations, her savings, hard work and boarding 3 Students. As there is no Government funding in Nepal,  Alissa comes back to Queensland every couple of months to raise money to keep it going, she does this by having many, many Sausage Sizzles and Garage Sales with donated goods, which are very popular in Queensland, Aussies love a bargain! but wonderfully they also donate and help support Alissa and the Children without receiving something in return, except of course Joy and thankfullness in knowing Children in need are being cared for .
 SAMSUNG
It doesn’t matter where they live, Children love to play
and it’s so good when they can.
Alissa’s Orphanage is a recognised and registered Charity and you can support a Child personally and be in contact with them through letters and  Skype, a Computer was Donated recently to make this possible… how good is that! but I do realise that some of you may be finding it hard to manage financially yet still want to be able to help, so I thought of a way you could with the most important needs these Children have, like food, clothes and medicine etc. 
If all of us who Blog for Jesus could give even just $5.00 or more if your able to, we could raise enough to help Alissa meet these urgent costs and also give her more time in Nepal to be with her much Loved Children, she now has over 14 but more are expected daily.  Alisa would like to help many more Children so you can be sure I will be asking God to multiply what ever is given but of course our Loving Heavenly Father thought of this first, His work done in His way never lacks His Supply, He sends help…
And that’s us, The Body of Christ, His Children and He has blessed us so we are able to help others in need and we know it’s a Joy when we do, so we are blessed again in our giving.
If you would also share with others about Alissa and her Sausage Orphanage, it would be very much appreciated and help greatly to make her needs known, I’m sure this type of gossip would be called Godly.
Alissa’s Sunshine Children’s Home in Nepal also has a  website ( see below )  where you can donate using Pal and if wanted can leave a comment or you can talk to Alissa personally by phone, the number is provided.
 
Many Blessings to you all as you reach out to others in need,
Christian Love from us both Always  – Your Sister Anne.

Just A Mum?

 
 
 
 A woman, renewing her driver’s license at the County Clerk’s office, was asked by the woman recorder to state her occupation.

 She hesitated, uncertain how to classify herself.  
“What I mean is,” explained the recorder,
“do you have a job or are you just a …?”

 “Of course I have a job,” answered the woman.
” I’m a Mum.”

“We don’t list ‘Mum’ as an occupation, ‘housewife’ will cover it,” Said the recorder emphatically.

 I forgot all about her story until one day I found myself in the same situation, this time at our own Town Hall.  

The Clerk was obviously a career woman, poised, efficient, and possessed of a high-sounding title like…

“Official Town Registrar.”

 “What is your occupation?” she probed.

 What made me say it?  I do not know.  The words simply popped out.  

“I’m a Research Associate in the field of Child Development and Human Relations.”

 The clerk paused, ball-point pen frozen in midair and looked up as though she had not heard right.  

 I repeated the title slowly emphasizing the most significant words.
Then I stared with wonder as my pronouncement was written, in bold, black ink on the official questionnaire.

 “Might I ask,” said the clerk with new interest, “just what you do in your field?”

 Coolly, without any trace of fluster in my voice,

 I heard myself reply,
“I have a continuing program of research,
(what mother doesn’t) In the laboratory and in the field, (normally I would have said indoors and out).  

I’m working for my Masters, (first the Lord and then the whole family) and already have four credits (all daughters).  

 Of course, the job is one of the most demanding in the humanities, (any mother care to disagree?) and I often work 14 hours a day,  (24 is more like it).  

 But the job is more challenging than most run-of-the-mill careers and the rewards are more of a satisfaction rather than just money.”

 There was an increasing note of respect in the clerk’s voice as she completed the form, stood up, and personally ushered me to the door.

 As I drove into our driveway, buoyed up by thinking about my important career, I was greeted by my lab assistants — ages 13, 7, and 3. Upstairs I could hear our new experimental model, (a 6 month old baby) in the child development program, testing out a new vocal pattern.  

  I felt I had scored a beat on bureaucracy! and looking at my role as a Mum  it was all True. 
I had gone on the official records as someone distinguished and
indispensable to mankind because I’m needed and what I do is very important…..

 “I am a Mum.” 

 

So does this make Grandmothers
“Senior Research associates in the field of
Child Development and Human Relations”
And great Grandmothers
“Executive Senior Research Associates?”  
I think so!  
I also think it makes Aunts
“Associate Research Assistants.”

 Motherhood!  
What a glorious career!  
One designed by God, a blessing  and  a High calling,  and no matter the title on the door nothing could make it more important. 

Be encouraged in Your  God-given Role.

 May your troubles be less, Your blessings be more,
And may you have Joy no matter what
comes through your door!

  Remember if Life brings you to it …..
God will bring you through it.

Before I was a Mum…

I received this Message below from a close friend who believes in being a Mum and that it is a wonderful blessing that she gives thanks for daily.
 
 
 Before I was a Mum…
I slept as late as I wanted and never worried about
 how late I got into bed.
I brushed my hair and my teeth everyday.
 
 
 
  Before I was a Mum…
I cleaned my house each day.
I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby.
I didn’t worry whether or not my plants were poisonous.
I never thought about immunizations.
 
 
 
 Before I was a Mum…
I had never been puked on.
Pooped on.
Spit on. Chewed on. Or peed on.
I had complete control of my mind and my thoughts.
I slept all night.
 

 Before I was a Mum…
I never held down a screaming Child so that doctors could do tests. Or give shots. I never looked into teary eyes and cried.
I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.

“!END”

 

 
 
Before I was a Mum…
I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn’t want to put it down. I never felt my heart-break into a million pieces when I couldn’t stop the hurt.

I never knew that something so small could affect my life so much. I never knew that I could Love someone so much.
I never knew I would Love being a Mum.

Before I was a Mum…
I didn’t know the feeling of having my heart outside my body.
I didn’t know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby.

I didn’t know that something so small could make me feel so important and happy.

        I didn’t know that bond between a Mother and her Child.

Before I was a Mum…
I had never gotten up in the middle of the night
every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay.
I had never known the warmth.
The joy. The love. The heartache. The wonderment.

Or the satisfaction of being a Mum.
I didn’t know I was capable of feeling so much…

 Before I was a… Mum

 
 Behind every successful Mother…
Is a basket full of Pride and Joy and many Prayers.
