a NEW photo and a short Sunday sermon


Happy Sunday! Here’s a view from our hotel room at Ashdown Park Hotel and Country Club in East Sussex, England. One of these days, I want to play around with Photoshop with this old window and change the scenery like Melinda Anderson did in THIS very cool post! {check it out…such a cool idea!}


The Ashdown Park Hotel was gorgeous – an old manor house next to an old convent that had beautiful stained glass windows and a majestic pipe organ where they host meetings, conferences, weddings etc. Those lucky, lucky nuns who used to live in that convent!

So…for today’s short sermon I’ll just share a few lines from the talk “Charity Never Faileth”


Mother Teresa, a Catholic nun who worked among the poor in India most of her life, spoke this profound truth: “If you judge people, you have no time to love them.” The Savior has admonished, “This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.”I ask: can we love one another, as the Savior has commanded, if we judge each other? And I answer—with Mother Teresa: no, we cannot.

The Apostle James taught, “If any … among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s [or woman’s] religion is vain.”

Charity has been defined as “the highest, noblest, strongest kind of love,” the “pure love of Christ … ; and whoso is found possessed of it at the last day, it shall be well with [her].”

Have a great day! Do or learn something NEW!
