HOW WONDERFUL TO BE A CHILD OF THE KING!

HOW WONDERFUL TO BE A CHILD OF THE KING! My sister, Mary Ann, came down from her beautiful home in Georgia to visit for a few days and we had a fun time talking about the “good ole days” back when we were kids. We decided to “visit” the old neighborhood, the place we were raised, and so we did. The house is no longer there and the few houses that are still there don’t look the same. We could have looked at our old home place, the place where the house once stood and had feelings of sadness but we didn’t, we chose to think about all the happy times we had there when Mama, Daddy and all the kids were there. We reminisced, laughed awhile, circled the block several times, saw the “fallen tree” the place where we all went to play and then we left the old neighborhood REJOICING!! My how far the Lord has brought us! He replaced the old house with a home in Heaven for our Mama, our Daddy, and two of our brothers who have gone on before us. We have been blessed more than words can say! God is so very good to His children and I thank Him. It’s nice to look back just to see where God has brought us from and where we might have been. We have been blessed! Same is true as Christians in our walk with the Lord. When we are tempted to grow weary in well doing, when the world tugs at us and Satan tries to convince us that “everything is beautiful in this old world,” when we are tempted to look back and ask “what if” and “why this” just remember where God has brought us from and where we might have been. My sister, Mary Ann and I went to the old neighborhood, we looked, we saw and we left thanking God for all His blessings… “The Cross before us, the world behind us, No turning back, no turning back.”
