The Lord has provided to us
the masterpiece of His creation.
He has given us the sea,
a vast cathedral, a place to be with Him.

I go to that cathedral now,
I have prayed to my Lord there on many occasions.
I sought His help, to make things better.
Now, as I take stock, see how He has blessed me,
it is time for me to thank my Lord.

Help me thank the Lord,
thank Him with me for your blessings.
On this page are my favorite verses,
drawings and music, placed here
to thank the Lord.

Put your prayer, verse,
graphic, music or link
in my Guest Book
and I will add it.
Make this our page,
dedicated to our Creator.

in the Sand

One night a man had a dream.  He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord.  Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.  For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand; one belonging to him , and the other to the Lord.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints.  He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times of his life.

This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it.  “Lord, You said that once I decided to follow You, You’d walk with me all the way.  But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times of my life, there is only one set of footprints.  I don’t understand why when I needed You most You would leave me.”

The Lord replied, “My precious, precious child, I love you and would never leave you.  During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.”



If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am become sounding brass, or a clanging cymbal. And if I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And if I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and if I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profiteth me nothing. Love suffereth long, and is kind; love envieth not; love vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not its own, is not provoked, taketh not account of evil; rejoiceth not in unrighteousness, but rejoiceth with the truth; beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Love never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall be done away; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall be done away. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part; but when that which is perfect is come, that which is in part shall be done away. When I was a child, I spake as a child, I felt as a child, I thought as a child: now that I am become a man, I have put away childish things. For now we see in a mirror, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know fully even as also I was fully known. But now abideth faith, hope, love, these three; and the greatest of these is love.

1 Corinthians 13

Thank you Aradia:

To everything there is a season,
And a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die;
A time to plant,
And a time to pluck up that which is planted.
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
A time to break down, and a time to build up.
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn and a time to dance.
A time to cast away stones,
And a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing.
A time to get, and a time to lose;
A time to keep, and a time to cast away.
A time to rend, and a time sew;
A time to keep silence, and a time to speak.
A time to love, and a time to hate;
A time of war, and a time of peace.

Ecclesiastes 3: 1-8

Thank you Scotia:

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!

Phillipians, 4:13

Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them:
otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in Heaven.

Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, they have their reward.

But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:

That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.

 Matthew 6: 1 - 4

Thank you SnowPoodle:

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son-- that whosoever believeth in Him shall have everlasting Life.

John 3:16

Thank you Andrea


I thought I was walking alone but I couldn't see
That every step of the way God walked beside me
When I was at my lowest His love lifted me high
When I thought I had no reason to live He opened my eyes
All the times that I thought I cried out in vain
He was there to guide me and get me through the pain
I'm so thankful that he showed me the way
Now I understand that all of my life led me to today
I'm exactly where I'm meant to be
Now I know that I have a reason to be


Thank you Marsha

And, Again, Aradia

Closer Walk With Thee

Just a closer walk with Thee
grant it Jesus is my plea

Thank you , John

Thank you , Dark Blue Knight

I woke up early one morning ;  
and rushed right into the day.

I had so much to accomplish ;

that I didn't have time to pray.

Problems just tumbled about me ;  
and heavier came each load.
"Why doesn't God help me," I wondered ;

           He answered, " You didn't ask."

I wanted to see joy and beauty ;  
but the day toiled on gray and bleak.
I wondered why God didn't show me ;
  He said, " But you didn't seek."

I tried to come into God's presence ;
I used all my keys at the lock.

God gently and lovingly chided ;  
"My child, you didn't knock."

I woke up early this morning ;
and paused before entering the day.
I had so much to accomplish ;
that I had to take time to pray.


Thank you , Jaayze

We may make our plans,
but God has the last word.
You may think everything you do is right,
but the Lord judges your motives.
Ask the Lord to bless your plans
and you will be successful in carrying them out.

Proverbs 1 - 3

Thank you, Nadeen

What God Hath Promised

God hath not promised skies always blue,
Flower-strewn pathways all our lives through.
God hath not promised sun without rain,
Joy without sorrow, peace without pain.
But God hath promised strength for the day,
Rest for the laborer, light on the way;
Grace for the trial, help from above,
g sympathy, Undying love.



And from Songbird

Every day the first thing I do when I wake up
 is thank God for the blessings of another day 
and for the miracle of each breath. 
 I pray with His help to be of service in the word,
 to live my life in alignment with His Will 
with compassion and loving kindness, 
to help make the world a better place.
  Lord I hear your praises in each bird's song 
and the beauty and majesty of your creation. 
 The last thing I do before going to sleep
is to Praise your Holy Name. 
 May everyone who reads this be blessed 
with the glory of God's love.


From Gloria

God's Love
God's love is all around us,
No matter where we are.
From the sun so brightly shining,
To the twinkling of a star.
God's love is in a newborn babe,
So perfect and so sweet,
From its tiny little fingers,
To its tiny little feet.
God's love is in a blooming rose,
The grass and trees so green.
His love shows in the Autumn leaves,
And in a wintry scene.
God's love is shown in many ways,
But the most important one,
Is Jesus Christ our Saviour,
His only begotten Son.

 Gloria Martel


Joyce Beaulieu's Contribution - Thank You

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.

Thank You, Sharon

Wanda, thank you 

The fifties on the Canadian prairies were the days ofinnocence.
 Christians didn't go to movies. 
(Therewas no T.V. and no movie theatres) 
I rememberpeople travelled for miles to the Mennonite Camp 
meeting tabernacle in Didsbury Alberta to hear T. Texas Tyler,
 a former Hollywood movie & music star give his testimony
 about how he got saved. 
We were shocked at the scandalous stories he told
 about people drinking liquor, 
smoking a demon weed calledmarijuana 
and getting divorced in that den ofiniquity, Hollywood.
 Then he sang this song...
I'm not alone, while walking on life's pathway,
I have a friend who walks along with me;
I'm not alone altho' I'm often lonely,
My Lord divine is by me constantly.
So when the storm and trial assail me,
And earthly friendships fail me, 
I'll sing and smile o'er ev'ry mile
Till I reach my heavenly home;
And, so, I, journey o'er hill and valley
I'm not alone: my Savior walks with me.
Words and music by John W. Peterson (1921-)
c. 1955 by Alfred B. Smith (1916-)


From Mary, Thank You.

O Father..that you would bless me 
and expand my territory, 
walk with me and hold my hand 
to keep me from evil...
so I may not cause pain.

The Prayer of Jabez


Thank You Susan,

I Took A Walk With My Lord 

I took a walk with my Lord today,
 and he took me to a place so far away. 
Where never is there a tear to shed,
 a place where you never even go to bed. 
Then he showed me the streets of gold, 
and the mansions he built like I was told. 
There were children dancing and playing in the streets, 
where no dark stranger would they meet. 
And the joy on they’re faces, as they surrounded the Lord... 
Singing praise and worship, to the one they adored! 
As I was caught up in this beautiful sight...
 I saw all his glory, his power, and might! 
My legs how they trembled, my heart how it did beat,
 as I looked at the scars, on his hands, and his feet. 
I then fell on my knees, my God to glorify!
His love how it engulfed me, I thought I would die! 
Then he reached out his precious hand to me and said, 
"Child I love you, I did this all for thee!" 
So when you think the roads to rough, and no more can you bear...
 Just look to "Christ The Savior" and remember how much he cared!
