Placing twinkles where there were only tears

Another year will soon be passed and I am reminded ‘The things which cannot be shaken may remain’.  (Hebrews 12: 27).   Nations crumble, economies shatter, whatever my loss has or may be, He will remain.   My heritage is rich and my portion blest.

Is it really December?  Christmas Cards arriving already?  I smiled thinking (to myself) ‘Christmas will be somewhat different for “The Moore’s” this year,  but as we prepare, within our hearts, we are going home’.  Home to perhaps a land of barrenness, desolation, poverty, illness, but in faith, in confidence,  we go in His name knowing that He will bring forth fruit in His season. I long to see those precious to me in Romania; I miss my times with them and thank those of you whose hearts the Lord touched in sending love gifts to the Orphaned, Disabled, Abandoned and Terminally Ill Children.

Dr. Moore is busy writing his third book based on Galatians, entitled ‘Glory In The Cross’.  In my own private reading this morning Chapter 2: 10 contained three words that gave me the assurance needed personally just now ‘REMEMBER THE POOR’.

Questions filled my heart: ‘Why are some of His children poor?’  All hearts are in His control and so in the ‘Give With Your Heart’ Appeal we will have the privilege to show our love – ‘Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of Mine, you did for Me’.

My friend Lorna (Omagh Baptist Church) sent a beautiful card today: I quote: ‘Stretching smiles where there had hung only frowns.  Placing twinkles where there were only tears.  Hanging a bright star in a dark sky.  Arching rainbows in the midst of thunderclouds’.

Remember us as we minister within our different roles that we (as one of old) MAY BE A BLESSING.
