The Best Sermons Can Be The Ones Left Unspoken!

FirePlace
A member of the church, who previously had been attending services regularly, stopped going. After a few weeks, the pastor decided to visit him. It was a chilly evening. The pastor found the man at home alone, sitting before a blazing fire.
Guessing the reason for his pastor’s visit, the man welcomed him, led him to a comfortable chair near the fireplace and waited.
The pastor made himself at home but said nothing. In the grave silence, he contemplated the dance of the flames around the burning logs. After some minutes, the pastor took the fire tongs, carefully picked up a brightly burning ember and placed it to one side of the hearth all alone then he sat back in his chair, still silent.
The host watched all this in quiet contemplation. As the one lone ember’s flame flickered and diminished, there was a momentary glow and then its fire was no more. Soon it was cold and dead. Not a word had been spoken since the initial greeting.
The pastor glanced at his watch and realized it was time to leave. He slowly stood up, picked up the cold, dead ember and placed it back in the middle of the fire. Immediately it began to glow, once more with the light and warmth of the burning coals around it.
As the pastor reached the door to leave, his host said with a tear running down his cheek, ‘Thank you so much for your visit and especially for the fiery sermon. I will be back in church next Sunday.’
We live in a world today, which tries to say too much with too little. Consequently, few listen.
Sometimes the best sermons are the ones left unspoken. ~ Robert Bratcher

10 Essential Elements That Make the Most Luxury Ski Vacation!

You’ll probably have you own ideas of what constitutes the ideal ski break. It could be that a trip to the Alps isn’t complete without your pooch, your favourite pillow, perhaps your own library or maybe a suitcase full of Baked Beans, Sliced bread and Marmite. Leaving your idiosyncrasies to one side, I think it would be hard to disagree with the list I compiled in an idle moment while I waited for the ski shuttle to take me to the nearest ski lift, which brings me nicely to the first essential.

1. Ski-in ski-out, private ski instructor

No clumping around the resort in ski-boots like a man in treacle with stiff legs, a no brainer, strap on your ski’s at the back door and away you go. And on return, a carving turn with a flourish, bringing yourself to a sudden stop and voila! time to put the kettle on. Make sure you have the ability to stop in time as the back door is a pretty solid object and you don’t want to be in casualty with broken bones on your first day. A private ski instructor wouldn’t go amiss either, ensuring you don’t come face to face with the aforementioned back door.

2. Chalet interiors with the wow factor

You’ve waited all year for this moment, raided all the piggy banks to get the best accommodation you could afford and poured over the photos a million times. You want to be able to walk in your chosen chalet and be blown away. Immediately your already elevated spirits are turned up another notch or two as you wander round, open-mouthed, from room to room, getting giddy and nudging each other saying “the photos just don’t do this place justice.” It’s a well-known fact that a well thought out and designed interior with classy furnishings and objects induces a feeling of well-being and contentment. Definitely a case of money well spent.

3. Open log fire

There’s something primeval about sitting near a log fire, staring into the flames, feeling the warmth, daydreaming. The complete opposite of what you’ve experienced in your days skiing; snow, ice, freezing temperatures. Here you can thaw on the outside
while you allow the  delightful red wine, with hints of summer breeze to do it’s job on the inside.  A must have element for the perfect ski vacation.

4. A terrace with stunning views

We all love the mountains don’t we? They are pretty special places, covered in natures cotton wool, the jagged peaks, the mysterious places high above the valley below where few people ever venture. Magnificent and untouchable and all visible from your wonderful terrace.  At nights the lights twinkle below, the stars twinkle above, the hot tub steams, this is as good as it gets.

Chalet Le Chardon

5. A top chef with great selection of wines from the wine cellar

You booked catered, you sit back the first night and await your first evening meal.  Go on, impress me! And do you know what? He does. Five superb, delicious courses, complete with descriptions and wines to complement from the extensive wine cellar.
An education for the mind and the palette; this gastronome would win Master Chef and he’s yours for the duration.

6. Spa facilities, gym, swimming pool, massage

You’re definitely pigging out on the top quality nosh, it would be rude not to, after all it’s not often you get Jaime Olivier to yourself for a week. What to do? Easy, wander down to the indoor swimming pool, put in a couple of lengths, have a session on the treadmill, have a look at the weights, then get a beefy masseuse to slap you about for a while, well, you deserve it, you ate way too much last night and the guilt is starting to kick in.

The Lodge

7. Arrive by private jet

Avoid the hoi polloi and hob nob with the elite, no queuing, no waiting, no mad scramble for your luggage on the carousel, that’s if it’s managed to board the same plane as you.  Arrive fresh, in half the time, feeling like a celeb. It could become addictive.

Private jet

8. Internet access

Go on, admit it, you’re joined at the hip to your phone, iPad, laptop, tablet and the social networking sites just couldn’t survive your absence for a whole week. I’m guilty too, I need the internet like a junkie needs a fix. Essential, how else are you going to plaster pictures of your evening meal, ski fun, chalet interior, best mate and the odd selfie on the net in an attempt to induce envy in the folk back home.

9. Grand piano

Would be nice but not essential. Even if you can’t play the damn thing it sure does look good and ups the ante in the, “wow! look what we got” bragging rights department. If you can play, it’s perhaps not often you get to tinkle the keys of a top quality Steinway. Makes chopsticks sound like Lang Lang’s in the house.

10. Chalet entertainment, cinema, private nightclub, private bar, games room

After the fine dining experience earlier in the evening a wander into the home cinema to catch a film is a treat.
There could be a few arguments over what that might be but there are another six nights and anyway he who
holds the remote is “King of the Screen.” The race for the remote could get ugly.

After the film, perform your own Saturday Night Fever, bust some moves and throw some shapes, if you can even
move in an energetic fashion after the skiing, the spell in the gym and the fight with the masseuse.
Mix your own cocktails and make up your own rules regarding ratio’s, one part fruit six parts alcohol, sounds about right.

An argument over the rules of pool, snooker, darts, Snakes & Ladders is always fun and helps to cement
and strengthen bonds with friends and family.

So there you have it, all the elements needed for the perfect ski break. You don’t necessarily have to have
them all and arguably some, you could well do without but a full house keeps everyone occupied and happy.

God Can I Ask You a Question?

Happy Wednesday everyone.

I posted this story on Facebook a while back and it’s circulating again.
I wanted to share it with you in case you haven’t heard it. Enjoy!!

God.Can.I.Ask.Question

Me: God, can I ask You a question?

God: Sure

Me: Promise You won’t get mad

God: I promise

Me: Why did You let so much stuff happen to me today?

God: What do u mean?

Me: Well, I woke up late

God: Yes

Me: My car took forever to start

God: Okay

Me: at lunch they made my sandwich wrong & I had to wait

God: Hmmm

Me: On the way home, my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call

God: All right

Me: And on top of it all off, when I got home ~I just wanted to soak my feet
in my new foot massager & relax. BUT it wouldn’t work!!! Nothing went
right today! Why did You do that?

God: Let me see, the death angel was at your bed this morning & I had to
send one of My Angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that.

Me (humbled): OH

GOD: I didn’t let your car start because there was a drunk driver on your route
that would have hit you if you were on the road.

Me: (ashamed)

God: The first person who made your sandwich today was sick & I didn’t want
you to catch what they had, I knew you couldn’t afford to miss work.

Me (embarrassed):  Okay

God: Your phone went dead because the person that was calling was going to
give false witness about what you said on that call, I didn’t even let you talk to
them so you would be covered.

Me (softly): I see God

God: Oh and that foot massager, it had a shortage that was going to throw out
all of the power in your house tonight. I didn’t think you wanted to be in the dark.

Me: I’m Sorry God

God: Don’t be sorry, just learn to Trust Me…. in All things , the Good & the bad.

Me: I will trust You.

God: And don’t doubt that My plan for your day is Always Better than your plan.

Me: I won’t God. And let me just tell you God, Thank You for Everything today.

God: You’re welcome child. It was just another day being your God and I Love looking after My Children…

🙂

I hope you have enjoyed this. Have an Awesome Day and God Bless!!

Pray On – Babbie Mason

This Song is burning in my soul.. A friend had shared this with me and
now I can’t cut it off.. I have to play it over and over.

This is a Blueprint for me. I feel this. Please enjoy!!

Lyrics:
The army of Judah was paralysed by fear
When they heard a mighty multitude was quickly drawing near
But as they prayed for deliverance
The victory would begin
For when we call upon the Lord, we summon all of Heaven

Chorus
Pray on
For you are who the Lord is looking for
Pray on
For this will tear those mighty strongholds down
Stay on your knees for this is where the battle is won
Very soon you’ll win the victory, pray on

When Daniel faced the lions for worshipping the Lord
It seemed there was no hope at all for what would be in store
But when we stand on holy ground our smallest prayer is heard
Instead of on our circumstance our eyes are on the Lord

Chorus
Pray on
For you are who the Lord is looking for
Pray on
For this will tear those mighty strongholds down
Stay on your knees for this is where the battle is won
Very soon you’ll win the victory, pray on

Bridge
When your questions go unanswered
And your prayers may seem in vain
They don’t seem to make a difference
They don’t seem to make a change
Just rest assured God knows your needs
And He hears each time you pray
Your prayers are reaching Heaven and the answer’s on the way

Chorus
Pray on
For you are who the Lord is looking for
Pray on
Tear them mighty strongholds down
Stay on your knees for this is where the battle is won
There’s no better place for you to be
Then seeking the Father prayerfully
Very soon you’ll win the victory
Pray on….

I hope you have enjoyed this. Have an Awesome Day and God Bless!!

You Are My Refuge

I Found this on Facebook and wanted to share this with you.

I found a place, I can call my own, here in your embrace, where your mercy overflows,Child.of.God.Angels
it’s here that all my doubts and fears just melt away, I lay my burdens down and I look upon your face.

You are my refuge, you are my sanctuary, when I feel afraid, you’re my hiding place, you are my refuge and when the storm is raging, underneath your wings, I rejoice and sing, for you are my refuge.

He who dwells in the secret place of the most high God, shall abide underneath the shadow,
the shadow of your wings.
