A Soldier's Lawn in Iraq
Tuesday, July 18, 2006

CAPTION: Photo Courtesy of the US Army

A soldier who was stationed in Iraq asked his wife to mail him some dirt, fertilizer and grass seeds so that he could grow some grass to remind him of home. As you can see in the photo, he is even mowing his newly planted lawn with a pair of scissors!

Sometimes with all the busyness in our lives we forget to give thanks for all the things around us that are blessings. Often we just don't appreciate all we have and complain about all the things we don't have. Hopefully this photo encourages us to stop and think about the little things we take for granted.


Lost and Found: A Story About Providence

When I viewed this photo I could imagine an ant carrying a contact lens.

Elisabeth Elliot writes in her book, Keep a Quiet Heart, that she received an astonishing story from Brenda Foltz, who went rock-climbing for the first time. Elisabeth Elliot published the story in her book in the Lost and Found chapter. It involves an ant finding her lost contact lens after she lost it during rock-climbing. On her way down from the mountain after having said a prayer someone asked her if anyone had lost a contact lens. There was an ant carrying a contact lens!

She describes seeing an ant carry her contact lens with enthusiasm, "Sure enough. Special delivery! I bent down, retrieved my contact from the hardworking ant, doused it with water and put it back in my eye, rejoicing. I was in awe, as if my Father had just given me, though so undeserving, a big hug, and said, 'My precious daughter, I care about every detail of your life.'"

"For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him." - 2 Chronicles 16:9a


Children Learn What They Live
Thursday, December 07, 2006

If children live with criticism,
They learn to condemn.
If children live with hostility,
They learn to fight.
If children live with ridicule,
They learn to be shy.
If children live with shame,
They learn to feel guilty.
If children live with encouragement,
They learn confidence.
If children live with tolerance,
They learn to be patient.
If children live with praise,
They learn to appreciate.
If children live with acceptance,
They learn to love.
If children live with approval,
They learn to like themselves.
If children live with honesty,
They learn truthfulness.
If children live with security,
They learn to have faith in themselves and others.
If children live with friendliness,
They learn the world is a nice place in which to live.
