A closer walk with our beloved friend.

The Cruel Good Blessings

It is in our hard times that we draw the closest to Jehovah. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.  Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. James1:2-4 New International Version


When I have experienced my hard times that I shared my most sincere prayer with my Beloved. As I read the Bible and listened to sermons I realized there was a purpose for them. Most of the time it was putting me in the furnace to burn off things in my bad habits or attitudes.

He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; he will purify the Levites and refine them like gold and silver. Then the Lord will have men who will bring offerings in righteousness. Malachi 3:3 New International Version

It is not enjoyable I can assure of that just as there is the assurance that when we are brought out of the furnace we will be more purified and as a result ever closer to God. And that, is a very good blessing indeed.

Prayer: Thank You Jehovah Elohim (God our creator) for burning off the dross from Your child so as to enjoy the blessing of an ever closer loving relationship with You. I exalt You for this blessing in the name of He who suffered for me Jesus
Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.
