Tending the Flock-Being an Example

Tend the flock of God in your midst,
overseeing not by constraint but willingly,
as God would have it, not for shameful profit but eagerly.
Do not lord it over those assigned to you,
but be examples to the flock.
From 1 Peter 5:1-4

I must remember this as people learn more by example,
not by speech or lectures.  I know I do!

Happy Valentine's Day!!

"Let Your God Love You"

               By Edwina Gately


Be silent.      Be still.     Alone.   Empty.

Before your God

Say nothing.     Ask nothing.    Be silent.   Be still.

Let your God   Look upon you.

That is all.

God knows.
God understands.

God loves you.   With an enormous love,   And only wants

To look upon you    With that love.

Quiet.      Still.      Be.

Let your God--    Love you.

Our Choice

This is our choice in every moment.


Do we relate
to our circumstances
with bitterness
or with openness?

Love cannot be known

except in relationships,

in being affected

as well as affecting,

in sharing and participating.
