Let us never forget the sacrifices:Â CLICK
As you pour that cup this morning and duck back in that Delbert Cube or close your office door for a brief reprieve. Here’s a couple of questions to ponder; be careful…that coffee’s hot!
Why do we return to the refrigerator with hopes that something new to eat will have materialized? …or is it just me?
Why do banks charge a fee on “insufficient funds” when they know there is not enough money?…or is it just me?
Why do we run over a string a dozen times with our vacuum cleaner, then reach down, pick it up, examine it, then put it down to give the vacuum one more chance?
…or is it just me?
Send picture first! â€œSend me a picture first, then Iâ€™ll replyâ€ â€“ This is a very consistent message in the personal ads game. In this age of alienation and e-community, it makes a lot of sense to approach any unknown relationship with care and caution. Come on by the Church as the Deacon breaks it down. The church is located on “MAIN” street (The “MAIN” heading to the right of your screen.
We cannot change the color of our skin. What we can change is how we feel about it. We cannot change a pain filled past. What we can do is change how it affects us. We cannot change how others may feel about who we are and where weâ€™ve been. What we can change is how we see it, how we use it and how others use it to our benefit or detriment. The past has already been written, but we have the power to write the future, based on who we are and what we do now. Only we can write a future based on self-support and respect. We can write a future based on how much we have grown. We can write a future full of strength, peace, wealth, and love. All we have to do is what is right now.
Hey fellow passengers, let’s join and make our future by what we do now. R U With Me?

How’s about a second cup? CLICK
Ok, Ok…just one more cup, close the door, nobodies lookin (What a rare find)Â CLICK .
Today, I thought we would do something different. Let’s by-pass the caffiene and make a phone call. A phone call to our bodies.
Let’s take a moment to check in on our bodies. Deeply inhale and exhale. Let your mind flow through your body. Check in on your feet, legs, and hips. Let your mind roam your abdomen, your chest, your back. Scan your neck, shoulders, and arms. What are you feeling? Is it fear, exhaustion, tension, anxiety, anger, guilt, or shame? Inhale and exhale. Where are you feeling it? Legs? Back? Neck? Chest? Wherever it is, whatever it is, you are the only mechanic who can fine-tune your body. With a simple breath you can release the stress and replace it with what you need. Turn anxiety into peace, anger into joy, tension into love, fear into faith, and guilt into trust. Let’s take a moment right now and give ourselves a tune-up.
Where’s she at? CLICK

Good morning everyone! Praise God! I spoke with the Deacon and he says he will be talking about “GOD, Walking amongst us”, the ultimate sacrifice!
The Deacon is on vacation in the Nation’s Capital this weekend so through the miracles of modern technology we are still having church service, doing a remote right here (see below) this morning instead of at the Church, located under “MAIN” street to the right. Deacon Dan, take it away brother!
Good morning brothers and Sisters, I’m your Deacon, Deacon Dan, the one who usually speaks at the Church, however, since I’m in your nation’s Capital we need to broadcast right here on front street this morning. …And, as the cable guy says we will “get-ter done” right here!
Let us pray. Father thank you for a time such as this when we can gather in the name of your son and our Saviour , first asking for any and all sin against your will. We ask forgiveness so that we may humbly ask to approach you in the name of you son, the son of the great “I AM”. Father we ask that any and all eyes be blessed today as we enter into the worship of your majesty, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
Let us enter into Praise and worship of the King of Kings sing and experience the awesome sacrifice our Lord made: CLICK
Once again, GOOD MORNING and Welcome to the Church. This Church believes that Jesus IS Lord! He came from heaven to die for our sins. We leave it at that. As for all the other stuff yall can debate elsewhere. It’s quite simple to us. He came, he died, he lives. Accept that and well….
Let us pray: Almighty God, why you should love us so much, I can’t comprehend. We have rejected you, spurned you, ignored you, blasphemed you, and sought to place you on the periphery of our lives. Yet time and again, you are there to hear our cries and save us from ourselves. Forgive me, Father, for not reverencing you more. Forgive me for not recognizing the greatness of Jesus and the utter humility it took for him to sacrifice himself for me. But Father, thank you! Thank you for being patient, sacrificial, and long-suffering. Thank you, in Jesus’ name. …Amen.
My brothers and Sisters, here’s a thought. If we had been alive when Jesus worked in the carpentry shop in Nazareth or walked along the Sea of Galilee near Capernaum, we could have said, “There goes God,” and been right. The amazing reality of Jesus is that he was God among us. Matthew calls him Immanuel, “God with us.” In Colossians 1, Paul pours out every superlative he can use to describe Jesus’ preeminence over everything and everyone. He is God with a human face. He is the ruler, the transcendent one, who reigns above all creation. He is also our Savior and our sacrifice.
What an awesome thought to ponder. God was here on earth, walking amongst us. In closing, I can’t wait for his return. Can you? That is why we must all get the good news out. Don’t let the evil one make you think you are unworthy. If you are like me, even as I speak of the goods news now I am convicted, knowing what an wicked wretch I am. Yet, I persevere, holding on to the faith that I am forever cleansed by the Blood shed by Jesus. Yes! There are those that would spite us, and wonder, How in the world can you call yourself a Christian, you’ve done this, and you have done that. Yet I say, remember when Jesus stooped, wrote something in the sand and asked all those who were about to stone the woman. LET HE WHO IS WITHOUT SIN AMONG YOU CAST THE FIRST STONE. So I say. If you have not accepted Jesus as your Lord and Saviour pray the following prayer with me. If you have share this prayer with any and everyone that the Holy Spirit might prompt you to do.
In Closing: Father, what an honor it is to serve you and GLORIFY your son, Jesus. Abba father we know the NOTHING we can do will get us across the gulf that separates us from YOU. Good works, church membership, baptism are all short bridges to nowhere. Our creator, Yahweh Elohim, you gave us your son as a gift, to die for our sins and for that we thank you!
Church, PLEASE, I beg you you, PLEASE share the good news, Jesus is the son of God, he died for our sins. He was raised form the grave by his father, he lives, and we can live forever in him. Acceptance of this fact, confessing with your mouth and believing in your heart is the the only way to Salvation, So if you have not done so, pray this prayer, if you have, SHARE THIS PRAYER WITH OTHERS:
â€œFather, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.â€
There are two words that are spelled differently, pronounced differently, but to me they mean pretty much the same thing, Death & Divorce.
There are so many scars inside of people who have experienced divorce or death; it is incredible that we survive. Scars from childhood memories. Scars from dreams deferred. Scars from words, incidents and our judgments of them. We cover the scars with personality, habits and, sometimes, drugs, sex, and alcohol. We take our wounded souls into the world and pretend that we are not hurt. Yet every time we are confronted with an event similar to the one that caused the scars, the wounds are reopened. There can be no healing in our external world until we give intensive care and healing to our internal wounds. We may think we do not know what to do. We do. We must first admit that the wounds exist. We must be willing to examine them, touch them and expose them to ourselves. Then we must wrap them in the most potent antiseptic there isâ€”love.
Hey LifeTrain Passengers, Today let us nurture our wounds with loveâ€™s light.
Have a great weekend! CLICK
