Colossians 3:12

Today's Bible Verse:
Colossians 3:12
Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. (NIV)
* Today's Inspiring Thought: Clothed With Kindness
As I write this devotional, my husband and I are traversing through a difficult trial. Both of us were wounded in an accident. My husband's injuries were severe, while mine were relatively minor, although still very painful. We have been thanking and blessing God because we know the outcome could have been much worse.
Likewise, we are in awe of the Lord's amazing grace that is carrying us through this time of testing. Over and over we've been moved by the compassion of God's people, our dearly loved brothers and sisters in Christ. 
They have prayed with us, brought meals and groceries, helped with errands, and come to our aid in so many ways. The outpouring of kindness has been humbling and overwhelming. We have truly seen God's chosen people clothed with the fruits of his Spirit.
* Mary Fairchild Guide to Christianity

Psalm 55:17

Evening and morning, and at noon, I will pray and cry aloud; and He shall hear my voice. Psalm 55:17
A Time to Think
Prayer is the exercise of drawing on the grace of God.
--Oswald Chambers, author and evangelist
A Time to Act
Take charge of your thoughts instead of letting them control you.
A Time to Pray
Lord, keep my eyes on You today and not on my fears.

Little Birdie Blessings Quote

Little Birdie Blessings
Are you a worrier like me? Elisabeth Elliot has some words of wisdom for us on that subject: "We are meddling with God's business when we let all manner of imaginings loose, predicting disaster, contemplating possibilities instead of following, one day at a time, God's plain and simple pathway."

Women Guardians of the Peace


From 1913 to 1915, Frank Leslie’s Weekly ran a regularly occurring article titled In the World of Womankind by Frances Frear. These articles featured news about the suffrage movement as well as segments exploring American women’s growing role in the professional world:
This department is devoted to the interests of women. It aims to deal with vital problems in a wholesome and helpful way, and invites the co-operation of its readers. Inquiries will be answered, either through the columns of the paper, or by letter.
This item about women in police forces ran on July 30, 1914.

Women Guardians of the Peace

In the World of Womankind by Frances Frear
In the World of Womankind by Frances Frear
Woman, whose field of work used to be domestic service for the uneducated and the teaching profession for the educated, has won her way into every calling and line of work. One of the newest positions in an ever-widening field of activity is that of an officer of the law.
The policewoman is not to be pictured as an Amazon quelling a disturbance and putting offenders under arrest. A truer picture is that of a quiet little woman in a neat uniform, having the power of arrest, but spending her time in the more important work of prevention.
Policewomen are occupying a growing position of usefulness in the United States and in every important country of Europe, with the exception of England, because it is realized there are certain lines of work that a woman can do better than a man. She can attend to cases of desertion or of separation, investigate newspaper advertisements for women, follow up advertisements luring girls away from home under false promises of employment, and she can score most heavily in the fight against prostitution.

Frank Leslie’s Weekly, published from 1855 to 1922, was an American illustrated news publication started by publisher and illustrator Frank Leslie. While only 30 copies of the first edition were printed, by 1897 its circulation had grown to an estimated 65,000 copies.

The inspection of public places of amusement, where children under 14 are forbidden to go unaccompanied by parent or guardian, is one of her principal duties. In becoming an adviser with women and girls who are in distress, the policewoman is able to do a socially constructive work that no man could accomplish.
It is one thing to put a lawbreaker under arrest, it is another, and a finer thing, to use one’s position as an officer of the law to prevent people from committing offenses. This is the field in which the policewoman has worked with conspicuous success.

Psalm 27:13-14 The Lord is My Salvation

Psalm 27:13-14
The Lord is My Salvation

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

"Be Still And Know"



"Be Still And Know"
Be still and know that He is God
Be still and know that He is holy
Be still Oh restless heart of mine
Bow before the Prince of Peace
Let the noise and clamor cease

Be still and know that He is God
Be still and know that He is faithful
Consider all that He has done
Stand in awe and be amazed
And know that He will never change
Be still

Be still and know that He is God
Be still and know that He is God
Be still and know that He is God
Be still
Be speechless

Be still and know that He is God
Be still and know that He is our Father
Come and rest your head upon His breast
Listen to the rhythm of
His unfailing heart of love
Beating for his little ones
Calling each of us to come
Be still
Be still
