This week has been beautiful, and I think spring is finally here to stay. We have been fooled before with a cold front sneaking its way back in. Well, speaking of being fooled, Tuesday was April Fool's Day where many a folk were hoaxed or tricked. Most of this was all done in fun and brought much-needed laughter.
Well, did you survive April Fool's Day? Or are you one of those who pulls the pranks on others?
Often, the love of Jesus is not seen in the lives of his creation.

The older I get, the more I pay attention to my surroundings. I notice the beauty of flowers, trees, stars and even little details.
Spring has come. It's obvious on the calendar. We already have moved the clocks forward for daylight saving time. And where we live, trees and flowers are blooming all over.
Last week, we looked at Isaiah 1:18 and saw that God was willing to give his people an opportunity to come to their senses and turn back to him. Those people failed to heed God's warnings. Surely, man can learn from their mistakes (Romans 15:4).
The August Birth Month Committee of Bryan Neck Missionary Baptist Church will hold a fundraiser dinner from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. April 18-19 at the church in Richmond Hill.
What are you fasting for? What are you praying for? In what do you have faith?
This week around the world, and even in our neck of the woods, St. Patrick's Day was celebrated. Waters were colored green, people marched in parades and a lot of partying went on.
This week, I finished reading a most interesting book about the lives of Billy and Ruth Graham.
How much is God willing to forgive?
"This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mays observe to do according to all that is written therein, for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous and then thou shalt have good success." - Joshua 1:8

They are having snow up north.
Most religious people believe that God loves everyone and wants all to be saved. Yet some fail to understand that he created man to have his own will so he can determine what to do or not do.
In our recent election between the Democrats and Republicans, the Republicans seized control over the Senate by winning an additional seven seats.
When I was growing up in the church, we used to quite often sing a song called, "Count Your Blessings." It goes something like this: "Count your blessings, name them one by one; Count your blessings, see what God hath done."
I have a new computer. It is a laptop and literally is the size of the leather binder I carry in my book satchel. It is only a pound or so in weight.
When Elijah the prophet called for Ahab to gather all Israel to Mount Carmel, he started his address with the following words: "How long halt ye between two opinions? If the Lord be God, follow him. But if Baal, then follow him" (1 Kings 18:21).
We live in a world that is fueled by agendas. Man, by nature, tends to look out for himself. Occasionally, (it is one of the rarest occurrences) you come across a person who's only true agenda is the success and betterment of those to whom he or she is related. There is a person who is never quite understood. There is a person who is often rejected on the basis of trust. A pure heart often leads the bearer to be alone, even among thousands.
