Christmas Stamps

A blond goes into the Post Office to buy some stamps for her Christmas
cards.
She says to the clerk "May I have 50 Christmas stamps please?"
The clerk says "What denomination?"
The blond says "God help us. Has it come to this?"
In exasperation she says "Give me 22 Catholic, 12 Anglican, 10 Methodist
and 6 Baptist".

THOUGHTS & SMILES
If our greatest need had been information, God would have sent us an educator;
If our greatest need had been technology, God would have sent us a scientist;
If our greatest need had been money, God would have sent us an economist;
If our greatest need had been pleasure, God would have sent us an entertainer;
But our greatest need was forgiveness, so God sent us a Saviour.

-Prayer
Loving God, we come to you trusting in your mercy and knowing that your steadfast love endures forever. Look with mercy on those who are harmed or displaced. Give them strength to meet the days ahead, your peace which passes all understanding and new hope in the resurrection. Move in those who are able to give aid, that we may be your hands and heart on earth. Be with all who offer assistance, may your Spirit uphold them. As you have made water a sign of your kingdom, and of cleansing and rebirth, grant your people vision to see a new life on the other side of disaster. 
To you be given all honour and praise, through Jesus Christ our Saviour and Lord. Amen

THOUGHTS & SMILES
A Canadian Moment

The plaintive wail of the pipes
And the soft beat of the muffled sound
 Echo’s in the morning mist

The maple leaf snaps in the wind
Above the bowed heads of the mourners
While the words of John McRae’s
Immortal poem “In Flanders Field” are read.

As the bugler sounds the Last Post
The youngsters fidget and look forward to playtime
The oldsters shuffle, cough and look backwards to wartime.

The past and future of this
Blessed land mingle here
At the Eleventh Hour
On the Eleventh Day
Of the Eleventh Month.

Lest we forget!
We will remember them!

THOUGHTS & SMILES

 
There is nothing better than other people praying for you.  The instructions are to pick people you want God to bless. I picked you.  This prayer is powerful, and prayer is one of the best gifts we receive. There is no cost but a lot of rewards. Let's always pray for one another.

The prayer:    Father:
Thank You for each and every day You have blessed us here on earth.
Thank You for Your tender mercies.
Thank You for giving us friends and family to share joys and sorrows with.
I ask You to bless my friends, relatives, brothers and sisters and those I care deeply for, who are reading this right now.
Where there is joy, give them continued joy.
Where there is pain or sorrow, give them your peace and mercy.
Where there is self-doubt, release a renewed confidence.
Where there is need, fulfill their needs.
Bless their homes, families, their goings and their comings.     Amen.
