Tea Time with God: Take Time To Be Holy

Take Time To Be Holy

Take time to be holy,
Speak often with your Lord;
Abide in Him always,
And feed on His Word.
Make friends of God's children,
Help those who are weak,
Forgetting in nothing
His blessings to seek.

Take time to be holy,
The world rushes on;
Spend much time in secret,
With Jesus alone.
By looking to Jesus,
Like Him thou shalt be;
Thy friends in thy conduct
His likeness shall see.

Take time to be holy,
Let Him be thy guide;
And run not before Him,
Whatever betide,
In joy or in sorrow,
Still follow the Lord,
And, looking to Jesus,
Still trust in His Word.

Take time to be holy,
Be calm in thy soul, 
Each thought and each motive
Beneath His contrrol.
Thus led by His Spirit
To fountians of love,
Thou soon shall be fitted
For service above.  

William Dunn Longstaff, 1882

But godliness with contentment is great gain.

The Joys of Motherhood

 I just wanted to share a fun way to practice with children "writing skills." My son is in Kindergarten and to make it fun and interesting to him (it gets him eager to read.) I grab a note pad and we write notes to each-other.

I encourage my son in the notes; I will write simple things that are easy for him to read and sound out. Here is an example;" I thank God for you! You are a blessing in my life."  " Have a great day at school, God bless you." "God loves you so much and so do I." 

I pray you will have fun with the little ones that are in your life. Sharing GOD'S love and encouraging one another is so important. It is a joy to serve the LORD. I am reminded to count my blessings.

 If you train your children, they will give you peace.
    They will bring delight to you. 
{Proverbs 29:17}
