A Man of His Word

Written by Joyce C. Lock

Continued from page 1

There's an easy way to not makerepparttar same mistake twice. Don't make promises you may not be able to keep. We can say, 'ifrepparttar 126920 Lord be willing.' But, that's about all we can honestly agree to, knowing that none of us knows what tomorrow may bring.

Perhaps what God is calling us to today may not berepparttar 126921 same as tomorrow. All any of us can rightly do is what God is calling us to, until God calls us to move on.

Only once we've heard from God can we be, 'A Man of HIS Word.' And to walk with Him, we must first be available.

Butterfly Kisses

Written by Marie Williams

Continued from page 1

She boasted, “I just got a butterfly kiss.” (I prefer to call it a kiss from God.) I'm certain it was a gift from God. Leaning towards her smiling face, I fluttered my eyelashes on her cheek. “That’s it,” she exclaimed, “That’s just likerepparttar butterfly!” A brief moment of ecstasy for both mother and daughter transpired inrepparttar 126919 middle ofrepparttar 126920 field, and I gleaned a treasured memory to tuck away for future years.

God’s timing was perfect. Somehow,repparttar 126921 dishes didn’t seem so important anymore, norrepparttar 126922 schedule and interruptions ofrepparttar 126923 day.

Recently we celebrated her 31st birthday. She now has three beautiful daughters to join in their own dances, or exchange butterfly kisses. I hope she hasn’t forgotten.

Marie began her writing carrer after her children were grown. Altho, she did write for a few writing competitions in high school, winning one to attend Girl's State in Oklahoma City.

She wrote Christian articles for a local newspaper for two years, and has several poems published.

She hopes to publish a gift book within the year which will contain a potpourri collection of short stories,inspirations, and poetry. Marie's goal is to reach the lost for Christ.
