"Asking for Hats"
"One day a mother and her 8-year-old
daughter were walking
along the beach, just at the
water's edge. Suddenly, a GIGANTIC
wave flashed up on the beach,
sweeping the little girl out to sea.
"Oh,God," lamented the mother,
turning her face toward
heaven and shaking her fist.
"This was my ONLY baby.
I can't have more children.
the love and joy of my life.
I have cherished every day that she's
been with me. Give her back
to me, and I'll be in church every day
for the rest of my life!!!!"
Suddenly, another GIGANTIC wave
flashed up and deposited the
girl back on the sand.
The mother looked up to heaven
"She had on a HAT!!!!"
This is just a silly joke but
it reminds me of how I treat God
sometimes. It seems God
gives me so much,
yet I say, "What about my hat?"
Are we never satisfied?
He has already given us the ultimate gift,
His only Begotten Son, and that
is more than
we ever deserve, period.
If He never gave us one more
thing, that in itself
should be enough and should
fill us with awe and joy.
God must be sad about the "hats"
I ask for sometimes.
You know what though?
He often lovingly smiles and gives
me the "hat" also, like a gentle
father who is so very good
and loves SO much because it
is simply His nature to love.
Remember...YOU ARE "whosoever"......insert
"For God so loved so loved the
world that He gave
His only begotten Son that whosoever
believeth in Him
should not perish but have everlasting
Jesus prayed for you before
you were even born:
"I do not pray for these alone, but also
for those who will believe in Me
through their word."

"Shoutin' Hallelujah for Eternity"
Pamela R. Blaine
I am so happy and I am so free
All because the Bible says that Jesus loves me
Says He's coming back again, split open the sky
Up we go, In the air, we're gonna fly
(chorus) Living forever just praising
No more death, no more tears, feelin' no pain
With my Jesus we will ever be
Shoutin' Hallelujah for Eternity!
I'm the beginning and I Am the End
And I have forgiven you for all of your sin
Come unto Me my child why do you fight?
My yoke is easy and My burden is light.
