“Do not look back and grieve over the past, for it is gone;

and do not be troubled about the future,

for it has yet to come.

Live in the present,

and make it so beautiful

that it will be worth remembering.”

― Ida Scott Taylor

Corri  and Mike are a happy couple who enjoy life.

They decided to downsize in order to save some money.

She sold her antiques.

Their new home is a 19 foot older trailer.

She is a neat-freak.

She loved the small space they called home.

He cooks and caters;

(not in the R.V. of course).

She makes business cards and brochures;

whatever needs printing.

Great!

They started their new life

and parked their trailer in an R.V. park

in a city that only allows

them to stay there for six months at a time.

When that time is up, they have to relocate;

it’s a city ordinance you see.

So what did Mike do?

He planted grass and a small garden.

He made temporary fence

out of branches.

 

 He had flowering pots

placed in a decorative manner

around his site.

He had a bird feeder,

and  decorated their site with bamboo.

Basically,

they made it beautiful.

They made it home;

“Home, sweet home!”

“Home is the heart of life…

Home is where we feel at ease,

where we belong,

where we can create surroundings

that reflect our tastes and pleasures…

Making a home is a form of creativity

open to everyone.”

– Terence Conran

The art of making a home.

No insignificant task.

 I love this idea of the art form

of making a home.

More than making a place

that is pleasant to the eye,

it is also about making a place

that is a representation

of who we are

and what we love.

An art that is open to everyone.

“What day is it?”

It’s today,” squeaked Piglet.

My favorite day,” said Pooh.”

― A.A. Milne

What about the beauty they created?

They enjoyed it for the six months they lived there.

They created a beautiful moment and a beautiful home,

they can take with them wherever they go.

And everyone who went to the laundry

room or pool enjoyed it too.

The beauty they created

was enjoyed by others as well.

GOD’S WONDERFUL PLAN OF SALVATION

~

**********

Acts 16:30-31

”Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”

And they said,

“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ,

and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.”

**********

***

Romans 10:8-13

But what saith it?

The word is nigh thee,

even in thy mouth,

and in thy heart:

that is,

the word of faith, which we preach;

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth

the Lord Jesus,

and shalt believe in thine heart

that God hath raised Him from the dead,

thou shalt be saved.

For with the heart man believeth unto

righteousness;

and with the mouth confession is made unto

salvation.

For the scripture saith,

Whosoever

believeth on Him

shall not be ashamed.

For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek:

for the same Lord over

ALL

is rich unto

ALL

that call upon Him.

For whosoever shall CALL upon the NAME of the Lord

SHALL BE SAVED.

**********

The plan of salvation is simple.

Believe that the Lord Jesus Christ,

died for your sins and rose again from the dead.

Ask Him to forgive you of your sins.

Invite Him into your heart to be the Savior of your soul.

When you’re crying yourself to sleep,

know that Jesus is lending His shoulder to you.

When you’re pushed to the ground,

know that Jesus is holding out His hands to you.

When you feel like dying,

know that Jesus died to let you live.

When you feel like no one loves you,

know that Jesus loves you more than you can imagine.
