Come and Dine! – An Easter Message — Walking With Lambs

If you feel like you have been up all night fishing, without catching even a single one, you are in the same boat with the disciples. People who live in a nursing home, often wonder why God has allowed this to happen to them or if He has anything left for them to do. The good news of Easter and of today’s message is that no matter what has happened or how we feel, Jesus still has a job for us to do! I hope you enjoy this session recorded yesterday which includes the hymn, “Come and Dine!” Have a blessed weekend everybody!

Jesus said to them, “Children, do you have any fish?” They answered him, “No.” He said to them, “Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some.” So they cast it, and now they were not able to haul it in, because of the quantity of fish. John 21:5-6 […]

Do You Have Beautiful Feet?

And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach 
the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! Romans 10:15 KJV

In March of 2020, all of the nursing homes, not only in Florida, but around the nation, closed their doors to visitors. For the next fourteen months those doors remained closed. No one but staff were permitted entry. In order to keep alive some form of communication with residents whom I had ministered to I began a small weekly devotional that I emailed to the activity department of three facilities. By 2021, I found that Rob Keller who I had met at our men’s group, was a graphic artist and was willing to do the layout and artwork to create a more finished publication. Somehow, word of what we were doing spread to Pastor Janice Burnett, who serves the nursing home community in Western New York and so with the Lord’s help and direction, the Sunshine Newsletter was born. While hardly an international sensation, this little newsletter, without funding or advertising is now being shared weekly in 10-11 different facilities in New York, Ohio and Florida. I am also thankful for Barbara Hegreberg of My Life in Our Father’s World and Patty Moore who writes He Said What? for their contributions. All of us according to the verse in Romans now have beautiful feet (though I won’t be posting a photo of mine). As we are now about to enter our third year of publication, I invite you to have beautiful feet too! Our goal is to share the message of the hope and true love that we have found in Jesus Christ. He is brighter than the sunshine of our best days and still shines in our hearts even when it is midnight in our soul. So, if you or someone you know would like to volunteer with writing, distribution, or technical assistance, please let me know in the comments section of today’s post. I will be delighted to send you guidelines and contact information for you to get in touch with us. Have a blessed week everyone and Happy Valentine’s Day!

Is Your Name on the Roll?

Nevertheless, do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.
Luke 10:20 ESV

I hope you will like our rendition of, “When the Roll Is Called Up Yonder”. Have you asked Jesus Christ to be your Lord and Savior? If you have then when He calls the roll in Heaven, you will be able to shoot up your hand and shout, “Yes Lord, I’m here!” To read the rest of this post and hear this week’s hymn go to – Walking With Lambs
