They Wont Let Me In

Today on Focus Friday I would like to welcome my daughter, Alex. She has a new blog she has started called Animalia. Please stop by and check it out and become a follower. She is planning on having different stories, photos and videos about all kinds of animals. Her ideas for the blog sound really interesting. She sent me the below inspirational story, I hope you enjoy it!

They Wont Let Me In
Author Unknown

It was a beautiful Sunday morning. People were filling the church to its full capacity! As they entered, each were given a bulletin filled with announcements, topic of today's sermon, what songs they would sing and who to pray for.

At the end of the line stood an older man. His clothes were filthy and you could tell that he had not bathed in days. His face was covered with whiskers, for he had not shaved for a very long time. When he reached the usher, he removed his tattered old brown hat in respect. His hair was long, dirty, and a tangled mess. He had no shoes on his feet, and wore only soiled black socks to cover the sores upon his feet. The Usher looked at him turning up his nose at the old man and said, "Uh, I'm sorry sir, but I'm afraid we can't let you in. You will distract the congregation and we don't allow anyone to disrupt our service. I'm afraid you'll have to leave."

The old man looked down at himself and with a puzzled look on his face, he placed his old brown hat back upon his head and turned to leave. He was sad as he loved to hear the choir sing praises to the Lord. He loved to watch the little children get up in front of the church to sing their little songs. He carried in his pocket a small worn out Bible and loved to see if the minister preached a passage from the Bible that he had underlined. But he was respectful, and didn't want to cause any commotion, so he hung down his head and walked back down the steps of the big brick church.

He sat down on the brick wall near the edge of the church yard and strained to listen through closed doors and windows to the singing going on in the church. Oh how he wished he could be inside with all the others.

A few minutes had passed by when all of a sudden a younger man came up behind him and sat down near him. He asked the old man what he was doing? He answered, "I was going to go to church today, but they thought I was to filthy, my clothes to old and worn, and they were afraid I would disrupt their service.

Sorry, I didn't introduce myself. My name is George." The two men shook hands, and George couldn't help but notice that this man had long hair like his. He wore a piece of cloth draped over his body tied with a royal purple sash. He had sandals on his feet, now covered with dust and dirt.

The stranger touched George's shoulder, and said: "George, don't feel bad because they won't let you in. My name is Jesus, and I've been trying to get into this same church for years -- they won't let me in either."

Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by this some have entertained angels without knowing it. Hebrews 13:2

Echoing Angels - You Alone

~ Sunday Song of Celebration ~

I'm desperately wanting to just find a way
I'm searching and seeking for someone to say
That it's alright and it's okay like I know You can
That it's alright and it's okay like I know You can

You alone are God
I am Yours and You're mine
And I know the heavens will call out Your name if I don't

I close my eyes and I drift away
To a place I remember, to a place I feel safe
Where it's alright and it's okay 'cause I'm there in Your arms
Where it's alright and it's okay 'cause I'm there in Your arms

You forgive me, You accept me just as I am
And You love me, and You want me to understand
I am Yours, You are mine
And I will worship You, yeah, worship You

And with all the heavens
I worship You alone 'cause You alone are God

Patience is a Virtue

Not Yet
Author Unknown

Sometimes I ask the question,
"My Lord, is this Your will?"
It's then I hear You answer me,
"My Precious child . . . be still."

Sometimes I feel frustrated,
'Cause I think I know what's best.
It's then I hear You say to me,
"My busy child . . . just rest."

Sometimes I feel so lonely
And I think I'd like a mate.
Your still small voice gets oh, so clear
And says, "My child . . . please wait."

"I know the plans I have for you,
The wondrous things you'll see;
If you can just be patient, child,
And put your trust in Me.

I've plans to draw you closer.
I've plans to help you grow.
There's much I do you cannot see
And much you do not know.

But know this, child . . . I love you!
You are precious unto Me.
Before I formed you in the womb,
I planned your destiny.

I've something very special
I hope for you to learn.
The gifts I wish to give to you
Are gifts you cannot earn.

They come without a price tag,
But not without a cost;
At Calvary, I gave My Son,
So you would not be lost.

Rest child, and do not weary
Of doing what is good.
I promise I'll come back for you
Just like I said I would.

Your name is written on My palm,
I never could forget;
Therefore, do not be discouraged when
My answer is . . . "Not Yet"

But the fruit of the Spirit is love,
joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness,
faithfulness,gentleness, self-control;

Galatians 5:22-23

An Island Perspective

Today on FOCUS Friday I would like to welcome Renee and Steve Ludwigs from Palm Canyon Wellness Group as my guest. I have enjoyed their writings on their blog, Journey to Palm Canyon, and their website for awhile now and always find the articles inspirational and interesting. They remind me to relax and enjoy God's paradise here on earth or as they put it "some tropical tranquility." Please take the time to visit and be sure to look at the many books and artwork they have available. I'm sure will enjoy An Island Perspective and find these sites inspirational as well. Here is just a sampling of the many inspirational thoughts you will find.

Ever notice that we sometimes have a tendency to make life harder than it is? We can't stop life from happening just like we can't stop the wind from blowing. My intention for the new year is to "keep it simple." Rudy, our Boston Terrier, is my role model.

If you love waves, palm trees & beaches, you can live with An Island Perspective anytime, anywhere! So it's cold outside. No need to fight it or complain about what is. While mother nature takes this time to hibernate and restore, we can still go to the island in our minds. Fix yourself a nice tall tropical drink (or a cup of hot tea!) Now close your eyes and imagine sitting on the soft golden sand of your favorite beach. Feel the nice warm sun soaking into your skin? Ahhhh! So refreshing!

Make Time to Heal

~ Two Quotes for Tuesday ~

Tears are God’s gift to us.
Our holy water.
They heal us as they flow.

Rita Schiano, Sweet Bitter Love
1997 published by The Reed Edwards Company

Jesus wept.

John 11:35

Where 'Ya Been?

The story is told of a man named John who had once been faithful to attend his church regularly, but had grown lackadaisical recently. The Pastor knew that he hadn't seen the gentleman in a while, so he went for a visit.

John greeted the Pastor and welcomed him in, directing him to the chair beside the fireplace. He asked the Pastor what brought him to visit, but the Pastor didn't say a word... .he simply grabbed the fireplace tongs, picked up a hot coal from the fire, and set it away from the fire, out on the hearth. Both men then watched the coal.

While the fire roared on, the coal which had been red hot began to lose it's heat. It gradually lost it's red color, and then cooled off so that it became cool to the touch. The Pastor picked up the coal, and handed it to John for a moment... neither man said a word.

Then the Pastor reached out and took the coal back from John, and returned it to the roaring fire... and in just a few short moments, the coal once again glowed red hot, as the pile of flaming coals caused it to heat up again.

The Pastor then got to his feet, put his hat on, and shook John's hand. At that point, John looked at the Pastor with tears in his eyes, and told him "Thank you for coming, Pastor, and I'll be back in church this coming Sunday!"

Now some of you reading this aren't able to attend church services on a regular basis due to poor health. But for those who CAN attend services, but don't for one reason or another, consider this: Do you need to re-examine your reasons for not going? If it's hypocrites, yes the church is filled with them - do you also stay away from your workplace because of hypocrites there? Do you tell yourself that you can worship God just as well camping, or golfing, or on the lake, as you can in church? If so, you aren't fooling anyone but yourself - and definitely Not God!

If you feel that God's Word isn't being preached in truth, then find a church where it IS - church isn't a cure-all for all of our problems, but it IS a place that you can be surrounded by those who will listen, and those who will pray for you... and you will hear Bible teaching there that you will not hear on the lake!

So again I ask you - what's your excuse? I pray that as you examine this area of your life, that God would move in your heart and give you an intense desire to return to the sanctuary of the church - and that you can once again find the joy of worshipping God with other believers!

Will You Open the Door?

Seeing God in Everything
Author Unknown

"Oh I need a new idea," I said,
While thinking on a sleepless bed;
"A new idea that'll bring to earth,
A balm for souls, of priceless worth;
That'll give men thoughts of things above,
And teach them how to serve and love,
That'll banish every selfish thought,
And rid men of the sins they've fought."

At last the new thought came, I'm here to tell;
It came to me, when on bended knee I fell,
And sought from Him who knows full well,
The way our sorrow's to expel.
So, see God in all things, great and small,
And give Him praise whatever befalls,
In life or death, in pain or woe,
Because God can overcome all your foes.

I saw Him in the morning light,
He made the day shine clear and bright.
I saw Him at the noon-tide hour,
And He blessed me with a refreshing shower.
At evening, when I was worn and sad,
He gave me help, and made me glad.
At midnight, when on a tossing bed,
My weary soul to sleep He led.

I saw Him when great losses came,
And found He loved me just the same;
When heavy loads I had to bear,
I found He lightened every care.
Through sickness, sorrow, and distress,
He calmed my mind and gave me rest.
He's filled my heart with joyous praise,
Since I gave Him my upward gaze.

'Twas new to me, yet old to some,
What now has become,
A revelation of the way,
We should live every day;
For as each day unfolds its light,
We'll walk by faith, and not by sight.
Life will indeed a blessing bring,
If we see God in everything!

I would have despaired unless I had believed that
I would see the goodness of the LORD
In the land of the living.

Psalm 27:13

The 9 Timeless Secrets to be Happy

For God has not given us a spirit of timidity,
but of power and love and discipline.

2 Timothy 1:7

Wednesday, January 6, 2010


Today we celebrate the Epiphany of the Lord, the manifestation of Jesus as Lord and Savior to the Magi. Here is the account according to the book of Matthew.

Matthew 2

The Visit of the Magi

1Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying,

2"Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east and have come to worship Him."

3When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.

4Gathering together all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired of them where the Messiah was to be born.

5They said to him, "In Bethlehem of Judea; for this is what has been written by the prophet:

7Then Herod secretly called the magi and determined from them the exact time the star appeared.

8And he sent them to Bethlehem and said, "Go and search carefully for the Child; and when you have found Him, report to me, so that I too may come and worship Him."

9After hearing the king, they went their way; and the star, which they had seen in the east, went on before them until it came and stood over the place where the Child was.

10When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy.

11After coming into the house they saw the Child with Mary His mother; and they fell to the ground and worshiped Him. Then, opening their treasures, they presented to Him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

12And having been warned by God in a dream not to return to Herod, the magi left for their own country by another way.

The Solemnity of the Epiphany deserves more of our attention. It is a special day for us. It is the day when God made clear that salvation was not just for the children of Israel, His chosen people, but for everyone in the world. This is the day God revealed Jesus Christ to the Gentiles. This is the day when we became “coheirs, members of the same body, and copartners in the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel.” (Ephesians 3:6)

This great Solemnity of the Epiphany is a good time for us to contemplate our own quest to find Jesus and to consider what gifts we have to offer Him. It is a day to thank God for including us in His plan for salvation. And it is a day to recognize how our lives reflect the radiant light of Christ to the world in which we live.

Renewed Sense of Purpose

~ Two Quotes for Tuesday ~

You will make known to me the path of life;
In Your presence is fullness of joy;
In Your right hand there are pleasures forever.

Psalm 16:11

Brethren, I do not regard myself
as having laid hold of it yet;
but one thing I do:
forgetting what lies behind
and reaching forward to what lies ahead,
press on toward the goal for the prize
of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 3:13-14

The Story of the Stone Cutter

Stone Cutter
Author Unknown

There was once a stone cutter who was dissatisfied with himself and with his position in life.

One day he passed a wealthy merchant's house. Through the open gateway, he saw many fine possessions and important visitors. "How powerful that merchant must be!" thought the stone cutter. He became very envious and wished that he could be like the merchant.

To his great surprise, he suddenly became the merchant, enjoying more luxuries and power than he had ever imagined, but envied and detested by those less wealthy than himself. Soon a high official passed by, carried in a sedan chair, accompanied by attendants and escorted by soldiers beating gongs. Everyone, no matter how wealthy, had to bow low before the procession. "How powerful that official is!" he thought. "I wish that I could be a high official!"

Then he became the high official, carried everywhere in his embroidered sedan chair, feared and hated by the people all around. It was a hot summer day, so the official felt very uncomfortable in the sticky sedan chair. He looked up at the sun. It shone proudly in the sky, unaffected by his presence. "How powerful the sun is!" he thought. "I wish that I could be the sun!"

Then he became the sun, shining fiercely down on everyone, scorching the fields, cursed by the farmers and laborers. But a huge black cloud moved between him and the earth, so that his light could no longer shine on everything below. "How powerful that storm cloud is!" he thought. "I wish that I could be a cloud!"

Then he became the cloud, flooding the fields and villages, shouted at by everyone. But soon he found that he was being pushed away by some great force, and realized that it was the wind. "How powerful it is!" he thought. "I wish that I could be the wind!"

Then he became the wind, blowing tiles off the roofs of houses, uprooting trees, feared and hated by all below him. But after a while, he ran up against something that would not move, no matter how forcefully he blew against it - a huge, towering rock. "How powerful that rock is!" he thought. "I wish that I could be a rock!"

Then he became the rock, more powerful than anything else on earth. But as he stood there, he heard the sound of a hammer pounding a chisel into the hard surface, and felt himself being changed. "What could be more powerful than I, the rock?" he thought.

He looked down and saw far below him the figure of a stone cutter.

"Furthermore, as for every man to whom God has given riches and wealth, He has also empowered him to eat from them and to receive his reward and rejoice in his labor; this is the gift of God." Ecclesiastes 5:19

"People who do this rarely look with sorrow on the past, for God has given them reasons for joy."

Where's the Line to See Jesus?

~ Sunday Song of Celebration ~

"Where's the Line to See Jesus?"
(An Original Song)
Performed by father and daughter, Steve Haupt and Becky Kelley
Inspired by grandson, Spencer Reijgers

Written by Steve Haupt and Chris Loesch

Recorded at Shock City Studios, Saint Louis, MO
Produced by Chris Loesch

Video by Robbie Haupt and Greg Haupt

The story behind the song, as told by Steve Haupt:
"While at the mall last year, my 4 year old grandson saw kids lined up excitedly to see Santa Claus. Having been taught as a toddler that Christmas is the holiday that Christians celebrate the birth of God's son, with the innocence of a child, he asked his mom, "where's the line to see Jesus"? If Christmas is Jesus' birthday, why don't we see Him more? As his grandpa, I was so happy that little Spencer understood the meaning of Christmas at such a tender age, and then the words for a song were jotted down in just a few minutes. The song was inspired by my grandson, and the message was inspired by my Savior. Out of the mouths of babes come profound truths that many adults can not understand. Hopefully Spencer's observation and our song will cause people to reflect on the love of Jesus, and the certainty that one day we will all stand in line to see Jesus. Merry Christmas everyone."

Yes, There Is A Santa Claus

I thought this was a touching story and wanted to share it with you. It is one of those stories which is passed around in emails. If you know who the original author is please let me know and I will be happy to give them credit. Hope everyone has a safe and Joyous New Year.

Yes, There Is A Santa Claus
Author Unknown

I remember my first Christmas adventure with Grandma. I was just a kid. I remember tearing across town on my bike to visit her on the day my big sister dropped the bomb: "There is no Santa Claus," she jeered. "Even dummies know that!"

My Grandma was not the gushy kind, never had been. I fled to her that day because I knew she would be straight with me. I knew Grandma always told the truth, and I knew that the truth always went down a whole lot easier when swallowed with one of her world-famous cinnamon buns. I knew they were world-famous, because Grandma said so. It had to be true.

Grandma was home, and the buns were still warm. Between bites, I told her everything. She was ready for me. "No Santa Claus!" she snorted. "That is absolutely ridiculous! That rumor has been going around for years, and it makes me mad; plain mad. Now, put on your coat, and let's go."

"Go? Go where, Grandma?" I asked. I hadn't even finished my second world-famous, cinnamon bun. "Where" turned out to be Kerby's General Store, the one store in town that had a little bit of just about everything. As we walked through its doors, Grandma handed me ten dollars. That was a bundle in those days. "Take this money," she said, "and buy something for someone who needs it. I'll wait for you in the car." Then she turned and walked out of Kerby's.

I was only eight years old. I'd often gone shopping with my mother, but never had I shopped for anything all by myself. The store seemed big and crowded, full of people scrambling to finish their Christmas shopping. For a few moments I just stood there, confused, clutching that ten- dollar bill, wondering what to buy, and who on earth to buy it for.

I thought of everybody I knew: my family, my friends, my neighbors, the kids at school, the people who went to my church. I was just about thought out, when I suddenly thought of Bobby Decker. He was a kid with bad breath and messy hair, and he sat right behind me in Mrs. Pollock's grade-two class. Bobby Decker didn't have a coat. I knew that because he never went out for recess during the winter. His mother always wrote a note, telling the teacher that he had a cough, but all we kids knew that Bobby Decker didn't have a cough, and he didn't have a coat. I fingered the ten-dollar bill with growing excitement. I would buy Bobby Decker a coat!

I settled on a red corduroy one that had a hood to it. It looked real warm, and he would like that. "Is this a Christmas present for someone?" the lady behind the counter asked kindly, as I laid my ten dollars down. "Yes," I replied shyly. "It's .... for Bobby." The nice lady smiled at me. I didn't get any change, but she put the coat in a bag and wished me a Merry Christmas.

That evening, Grandma helped me wrap the coat in Christmas paper and ribbons (a little tag fell out of the coat, and Grandma tucked it in her Bible) and wrote, "To Bobby, From Santa Claus" on it -- Grandma said that Santa always insisted on secrecy. Then she drove me over to Bobby Decker's house, explaining as we went that I was now and forever officially one of Santa's helpers.

Grandma parked down the street from Bobby's house, and she and I crept noiselessly and hid in the bushes by his front walk. Then Grandma gave me a nudge. "All right, Santa Claus," she whispered, "get going."

I took a deep breath, dashed for his front door, threw the present down on his step, pounded his doorbell and flew back to the safety of the bushes and Grandma. Together we waited breathlessly in the darkness for the front door to open. Finally it did, and there stood Bobby.

Fifty years haven't dimmed the thrill of those moments spent shivering, beside my Grandma, in Bobby Decker's bushes. That night, I realized that those awful rumors about Santa Claus were just what Grandma said they were: ridiculous. Santa was alive and well, and we were on his team.

I still have the tag from that coat, (tucked inside my Bible now.) It was $19.95.
