I don’t know what it’s like where you are but here in the Chicagoland area it has been rainy and cold for the whole month of April and now in the month of May the temperature has gone from the 30’s to the 90’s. It’s wonderful to know that in the life of God’s children, the Son always shines. I also want to thank everyone that made my day so wonderful yesterday for my birthday. I pray blessings on you all.

Today’s Prayer

Dear Lord Jesus, remind us that each step that we take in our walk with You counts, not just the goal. If we are to be Christians, then we must be Christians each step of the way. Help us to see that every day of our lives contributes something to the people we are becoming, and our conduct influences others around us. Fill us with the Holy Spirit, so that we may stand firm in the trials that we encounter daily. In Your holy name we pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

Rejoice in the Lord

1 Thessalonians 5:16-23

16 Always be joyful.

17 Keep on praying.

18 No matter what happens, always be thankful, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.

19 Do not stifle the Holy Spirit.

20 Do not scoff at prophecies,

21 but test everything that is said. Hold on to what is good.

22 Keep away from every kind of evil.

23 Now may the God of peace make you holy in every way, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless until that day when our Lord Jesus Christ comes again.

Quote of the Day

If you wish to find out whether you are addicted to the passion of gluttony (or any other, for that matter), you can find it out in the following manner. If food (or anything else) captures your thought so that you cannot resist it, you are a glutton. If you are not possessed by it and partake freely of all kinds of food to the extent your body requires it, you are not a glutton…passionate attachment to anything should always be avoided, for it does harm to the soul. ~Barsanuphius~
