*****There Is No Place For Bitterness*****


It is so wonderful to know that we never have to say good-bye, but only see you later. As our heavenly Father has promised us that through His grace we will have eternal life, and we will know each other in heaven. It is so comforting to know that there will be no more suffering, no more trickery, and only love and joy to share with all those we love and who love Christ. We will live In eternity with an abundance of all that is good.

I am so grateful to all my Brothers and Sisters for their love, support, and prayers that bring me so much strength and light. I hope the below poem from my daily devotional " "Poems For The Eternal Heart" brings comfort and strength to you for the upcoming week. For all those who have suffered loss in the horrific tornado's that struck the middle of our country I lift up prayers that they find all they need in the arms of our Loving Father during this devastating time. May we all have a joy and love-filled week ahead. Love,hugs, and prayers Patricia xx

Psalm 37[a]
Of David.
1 Do not fret because of those who are evil
or be envious of those who do wrong;
2 for like the grass they will soon wither,
like green plants they will soon die away.
3 Trust in the LORD and do good;
dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
4 Take delight in the LORD,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.

There Is No Place For Bitterness

There is no place for bitterness,
when it comes to our heart,
for struggles are lessons,
that set us apart.

For those of us who do believe,
know that this is "sow,"
it's the key to our journey,
which enables us to grow,

Jealousy, envy, and judgement,
emotions we try not to possess,
as they keep God's loving children,
away from His caress.

It should be love and kindness,
that's the basis of all we do,
as confirmed in His "Holy Word,"
which we know to be true.

For as is His promise,
to secure us each a place,
for every single child who believes
receives His loving Grace.....
