John 10: 2-3 “The man who enters by the gate is the shepherd of his sheep. The watchman opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.”
My youngest daughter went to the Northern California Coast a year ago last July for a Discipleship Camp near Patrick's Point. As the wind crashes against the window of my house today I am reminded of the waves crashing against the rocks in this photo, she conveniently left on my computer.
Jesus's promises, "He will never leave us or forsake us"
We all have problems in life:
To much work
Not enough work
People who seems to smoother us with love
Not enough of one thing
Too much of another
But we can never get too much of God
This weekend I ran across a magazine for Gospel for Asia
The stories of real life in Asia for women were hard to imagine in our western world thinking
Last night I looked up the site and found these facts:
We are so blessed in our country!!!
As I go through the next 5 weeks of our western "Holiday Season", I want to keep in mind the women that have so little and get no respect from anyone. I want to ask God to show me what I can do for the women in Asia.
I have a friend and her family that donatated 10 years of their life to Gospel for Asia to train women to reach women. My first stop will be talking to her.
Today I am Thankful for 3 Gifts of Tradition
1) Going to Aunt Merna's for Thanksgiving Day
2) Candy Canes in Cocoa

Which reminds me to relax, drink a cup of cocoa and read some Wind In the Willows today.
