Elmer’s blog is usually posted by Friday of each week just under the following introductory comment:
As a senior citizen, I’m not that great with the computer; but with the help of our grandson I somehow manage to get by. In searching for thoughts and inspiration for weekly blogs, I’ve recently been reminded of something wonderful and great. My Bible study and teaching notes and illustrations, and things I’ve shared with kids, parents, teachers, and principals over many years have been filed somewhere in my computer; and when I come up with a good search word (or words) everything just pops up on the screen. Wow! …and there’s lots of really precious memories and gems and jewels of truth that I’m now enjoying all over again.
God said that in the last days knowledge would increase, and IT’S HAPPENING; and it reminds me of something very wonderful and great about our God. His knowledge of us is infinite! God knows us inside and out and up and down and all around, and he NEVER FORGETS…unless he chooses to delete something which I think is true regarding our past sins when we trust in Jesus as our Lord and Savior. The Bible says he will cast our sins “into the depths of the sea.”
If you want to become part of a new “remembering and sharing” adventure through modern technology and hopefully discover practical tips and inspiration for living life at its best (including raising children) just return to this page each week. Also, please share your thoughts on any blog using the form at the bottom of the page. This is something we can do together. …elmer winner
This Week’s Blog
BE THANKFUL today, and make every day a Thanksgiving Day!
“How gloomy you look,” said one bucket to another as they were being carried to a well.
“Ah!” replied the second bucket, “I was thinking how usless all this is; for no matter how full we go away, we always come back empty.”
Then the first bucket commented: “What a strange way to look at it. I have always been thankful and happy that, however empty we come, we always go away full.”
Both were filled alike, The difference was in them. What kind of a bucket are you?
“But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ” 1 Cor. 15:17.
What kind of buckets will our children (and others) become if they choose to pattern after us? Stop the gloom and doom today; and hopefully, it will be gone tomorrow. And remember, thanksgiving begins in the heart and not at the table! …ew
