Grumpy the Gator

In Grumpy the Gator, a group of children playing encounter a grumpy alligator. The story teaches children to always keep a safe distance from animals in the wild, and to find an adult if they see an alligator.

Its Always A Story With The Hendersons

Keep in touch….

Earlier this year, Alan and I decided to join a different church. We had visited this particular church and felt welcome. This change had come after many prayers, questions and discussions with each other and with friends and family. The decision was made to start attending the new church and get involved in activities and then, join the congregation. We are very pleased with our decision.
One of the main questions we discussed with each other was “How can we glorify God through attending a different church? How can we shine His light to others?” Seems like simple questions to some people, but, to us, this is serious business.
Alan and I both want to show God’s love in all we say and do. We want other people to know we love Christ and that Christ loves us and them, too.
Isn’t that the way God wants us to show love to each other? In our words and our actions, we can show His love each and every moment of the day. A smile, a friendly hello, a phone call, a letter, and in many other ways we can show His love.
One example is to keep in touch with friends at our former church. We know someone who always says, “A friend is a friend for life. We will keep in touch.” That friend is showing God’s love.
Think of ways that you can shine His light to others. Can you think of someone right now who might need love? Call that person, send a letter, or better yet, go visit them. 🙂
Have a wonderful day and yes, let’s “Keep in touch”
Matthew 5:14 “You are the light of the world.”

    It’s sad, but it seems these days, “keep in touch” is more often a text message than an actual phone call or letter. Perhaps this is why I don’t have an iPhone. 🙂

    Reminds me of the Girl Scout song, “Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver and the other gold.” Glad you are a new friend.

    Melissa, so beautifully said. And we never know when someone may need that phone call or card.

    I appreciate my friends who keep in touch. I need to do a better job of letting some know they are in my heart.
