What does God do for You?

"Our greatest fear should not be of failure, but of succeeding at things in life that don't really matter."

After going over last Sunday's lesson at the service, I decided to feature this question for my fellow blogger's...How do we find what God is doing in our life." Myself, I am always looking for sign's that God has tried to talk to me, a pebble I find, response from people I met and maybe the color of the rising /setting Sun. 
In my opinion, here's what to look for daily-

~New Stories- A tale over coffee, a gossip at the store or a thought that intrudes your prayer/meditation.-Luke 10:29-"But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”

 ~New Songs- Looking for life rhythms that sooth your moods. It can be a obvious music, humming a nameless tune or the ticking of your clock that brings harmony to life. -Psalms 40:3-"He put a new song in my mouth, praise to our God! Many will watch and be in awe."

note-Read 1 Samuel 3:1 -21 : )

How do we find the "Word" this in our daily life?

1. Seek the lord! -Jeremiah 29:11-13-"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. "

2.Obey! -1 Samuel 3:10- God came and stood there, calling as at the other times, “Samuel! Samuel!
Then Samuel said, “Speak, for your servant is listening.”

3. Take new territory! Hosea 10:12 " Sow righteousness for yourselves,
    reap the fruit of unfailing love,
and break up your unplowed ground;
    for it is time to seek the Lord,
until he comes
    and showers his righteousness on you."

Holiday Over

After some controversies at the beginning of the Holiday season, I did manage to spend a Sunday,December 23, afternoon at the Son, Chris's home with my daught-in-law,Samantha, two daughters, two grand daughters and him-self...we had a lovely turkey cooked to perfection with all the trimmings. On Christmas eve, I attended the service at my church with music, old friends and new ones : )
Christmas day was quiet. I did go to the local Christmas Dinner hosted my the Lion's club in Yarmouth. My old friend, Alex Giggeroff recited "A Night before Christmas, sang and kept me entertained for a hour or so with his humor. I also had a chat with members of the local Liberal party who were attending there.The food was good, the choir excellent and they even gave me some fruit to take home. After me and my friend spent most of the afternoon & evening planning what we will do in 2013. I want to thank all my friend's who contributed to my holidays with gift's food, rides and entertainment! blessings to All of you Angels! I've been working on my book a bit this week plus a few writer's contests that have come to my attention, getting my soap box warned up and waiting patiently for the next step in my
"fight for freedom"... Here's a picture of my gift's from Santa for ya's ♥
