52 Bible Verses for a Joy Filled Year – Week 29



But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God. 

John 1:12

Focus on receiving and believing this week.


Because our God is a mountain mover and our God Is Mighty To Save.

We sang this song in church this morning and I thought I would share it with you.



Now go out and shine your light this week. 




How To Go From Grumpy To Bouncing Like Tigger In Under 3:44 Seconds

Yesterday morning I woke up about 3 a.m. and I was freezing cold. So I fixed a mug of warm milk, turned the heater on and went back to bed wishing I had a pair of strong warm arms wrapped around me.

When the alarm clock went off at 6 a.m., I struggled to get out of bed. I had warmed up some but was in no mood to go to work. It’s too much effort working and holding down a household but I force myself to do it anyway. It’s like that old saying “No rest for the wicked, weary, widow.” While getting ready for work I prayed for strength and energy to make it through my day.

After getting in the car, I turned on the CD and as I was backing out of the garage, Barry Manilow was singing “This One’s For You.” Well, I promptly switched to the next song as that song was not what I wanted or needed to hear.

However, the next one really got me in the groove. I looked at the sun shinning on the trees during my drive and started bouncing in my seat like Tigger and singing at the top of my lungs (it’s a good thing I do not carpool with anyone.)

The song that turned my day around

“Daybreak” by Barry Manilow

I bet you can not listen to this song without clapping along. Just please do not clap while driving.

Each daybreak is a new beginning, a new chance to move forward with life, “if you’ll only believe.”

So believe my friend, believe that you will survive and thrive while on your grief journey.  Then find a way to let your belief “shine, shine, shine all around the world.”          😀

The Main Reason I Voted For Mitt Romney

Here are some of the reason’s I voted for Mitt Romney:

  • Obama’s mishandling of Bengazhi (Don’t get me started on this subject)
  • Obama’s mishandling of Jobs/Economy (They are one in the same and don’t get me started on this subject either)
  • Obama’s bowing before the Saudi King (In case you have  not figured it out – this is yet another subject you do not want me to start talking about.)


Then I read this article from Fox News about people voting who experienced hurricane Sandy.  In the article there is the following quote:

I truly believe Romney is an honest, caring man,” she said. “He will lift us out of our spiritual and mental depression and help us believe again.”

Annette DeBona, 73, of Point Pleasant Beach.


That my dear reader’s is the main reason I voted for Mitt Romney – so he could lead us in restoring our faith, hope, and love of  God, ourselves and our country.  

Thank You

Thank you Annette for shifting my focus back to what is right with Mitt Romney instead of what is wrong with Barack Obama.


God bless Annette, her family, friends and all the other people touched by Sandy to never lose faith in you while they rebuild their lives.  Let the rebuilding effort be as quick and painless as possible.  Let them not only receive support and encouragement but also be a source of support and encouragement to others.

In Jesus name I pray,


12:27 Update

At least we have gridlock for another 2 years.  I will take that as opposed to sliding head-on into Socialism.  Before I went to bed I came across this verse I had written down:

But take heart! I have overcome the world.

John 16:33

Yes, Jesus you have overcome the world by dying on the cross for our sins.  I accept that fact.  It is just a shame the majority of the America will not accept what you did and why you did it.

It is comforting knowing you have overcome the world and that even Barack Obama has to answer to God, our Father – the one who is ultimately in charge.
