Love Bug

I wrote this recently in June after my mom died. Matthew 5:4 Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. The Lord gave me this after a hug from a special person.

Enjoy!
LOVE BUG
An affectionate embrace
Or hug of love,
Is so reassuring and comforting.
Every time my love hugs me
I feel safe and secure.
My mind wanders
To my Father
In Heaven.
His embrace and His love
It endures forever.
It is perfect.
It is kind.
It is everlasting.
It is patient.
It never forsakes me,
Or leaves me.
It never keeps a record
Of my wrong-doings.
An embrace is a sacred thing
I say bring it on!
It makes me feel safe.
So take a leap of faith
And be embraced.
Be refreshed, be reassured!
As I am held
I breathe in and breathe out
With a cleansing breath.
Oh so healing, Oh so good.
My heart leaps with joy.
I never want the embrace to end.
Life calls. I hear it in my head.
I take the moment in
And reluctantly release the embrace.
I look forward to the next hug.
I am hooked
I am transfixed.
I’ve got that “Love Bug.”

P.S. I ALSO THINK I HAD JUST GOT BACK FROM A JONAS BROTHER CONCERT, YOU KNOW THEY HAVE THE SONG “LOVE BUG.” LOL!

Pollution

Dear Friend:

Today everything is about the “Go Green” campaign. When I was in school everything was about “Pollution” and what can we do to cut down on it. Just like today we had projects and discussion with our teachers of how to rid our world of the pollution and what the greatest concerns were. There are so many things that we have stopped doing to help cut down on pollution. My mom would stop at McDonald’s and get us a burger and after eating that we would throw the garbage out the window. It was an acceptable thing at the time. As I got older and the awareness to pollution grew, they cities started putting up signs stating that there will be fines for throwing garbage on the streets. We had to get to a place of being fined because not many wanted to take the future problems seriously.

This is a continuous problem God has with His people. We pollute ourselves with internet access, movies, TV, magazines and music and we have trouble living how God wants us to live, here is what God want to say to us:
James 2:27b keep oneself from being polluted by the world. –GOD-

We must decide today to take the whole truth of God’s word and live by it otherwise we will be fined. Some of the fines we are paying come in the form of natural consequences to our actions like broken marriages, STD’s, Aids, sex offenses, unwanted pregnancies, rejection, loneliness, pride , drug and alcohol abuse.
Pray with me: Father in Heaven I want to keep myself from being polluted by the world. Help me to live it! In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Trying to stop Pollution,
Elaine
