RMR: Welcome to Mississauga

Actual Church Signs

DaySpring Devotions

Jesus CallingKeep your eyes on Me! Waves of adversity are washing over you, and you feel tempted to give up. As your circumstances consume more and more of your attention, you are losing sight of Me. Yet I am with you always, holding you by your right hand. I am fully aware of your situation, and I will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able to bear.

Psalm 73:23; I Corinthians 10:13

Excerpt from the devotion for February 27th from the book
Jesus Calling by Sarah Young.

God Will See You ThroughSometimes it's hard to see through our tears.

But even when we can't see, God has promised to be there - loving us, strengthening us, giving us what we need to face each day.

No matter what happens, God will hold you close and see you through because you are so precious to Him.

God cares, cares right down to the last detail.
James 5:11 The Message

A Friend in the Storm
When it feels like life has failed you
and your mind's been cast in war,
please remember Love's forever;
I will pass you through this door.

You don't cry alone in battle,
even when you think you've lost.
Please believe this truth, My winner:
Heaven paid your victor cost.

The LORD is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
Psalm 34:18

Excerpt from the devotional gift book A Friend in the Storm by Cheryl Ricker.

Never Ending card with Dawn

Dog for Sale (thanks Lindsay!)

A guy is driving around the back woods of Montana and he sees a sign in front of a broken down shanty-style house: 'Talking Dog for Sale.' He rings the bell and the owner appears and tells him the dog is in the backyard.

The guy goes into the backyard and sees a nice looking Labrador retriever sitting there.

'You talk?' he asks.

'Yep,' the Lab replies.

After the guy recovers from the shock of hearing a dog talk, he said, 'So, what's your story?'

The Lab looked up and said, 'Well, I discovered that I could talk when I was pretty young. I wanted to help the government, so I told the CIA. In no time at all they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping.'

'I was one of their most valuable spies for eight years running… But the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn't getting any younger so I decided to settle down I signed up for a job at the airport to do some undercover security, wandering near suspicious characters and listening in. I uncovered some incredible dealings and was awarded a batch of medals. I got married, had a mess of puppies, and now I'm just retired.'

The guy was amazed. He went back in and asked the owner what he wanted for the dog.

'Ten dollars,' the guy said.

'Ten dollars? This dog is amazing! Why on earth are you selling him so cheaply?'

'Because he's a liar. He never did any of that shit...'

How to nail a letter to a potential employer

Dear Reader:

Are you looking for a job? You’ve got lots of company. There are currently 14.5 million unemployed people in the United States. And chances are it’s been years, or even decades, since you last had to write a cover letter for your resume. Here’s fresh advice on how to perfect your letter. Keep in mind: sometimes it’s the little things that make all the difference.

• A colon instead of a comma in the salutation is more forceful (I tried it above). Forceful people make things happen, whether it’s getting hired or working effectively once you get the job.

• Use bullets to talk about notable accomplishments at your previous jobs, like cutting costs 5% or increasing sales 4%. I’m trying that approach out here.

• Use bullets to list the qualities that make you the right person for the job.

• Mention that you will call to follow up.

And this one really surprised me!:

• A P.S. increases the chances the letter will be read—by 75%!

An under-employed friend of Best You

P.S. Send the letter certified mail. Good luck!

Knowing Your Place

You are seated with Christ at God's right hand...
Nothing is higher than that !
God loves you with an everlasting love...
Nothing is deeper than that !
He invites you to drink from the river of His delights...
Nothing is purer than that !
He shares His heart with you in communion...
Nothing is dearer than that !
He watches over you with tender mercies...
Nothing is kinder that that !
He is with you and will never leave you...
Nothing is nearer than that !
He leads you according to the counsel of His own will...
Nothing is wiser than that !
He faithfully feeds you from His word...
Nothing is truer than that !
He is in you and joined to your spirit...
Nothing is closer than that !

Thursday, CBS @ 8:30 p.m.

The BIG Shatner news this week is the Season Finale of $#*! My Dad Says on CBS Thursday. Bill has asked that all of his fans and friends not only plan to watch but ask your friends to also watch.

There has been no news on its renewal as yet and there are a group of insiders who are worried that the lack of promotion for the show is an indication of where things may be going. So we need to make sure that as many eyeballs are on this Thursday's Season Finale. If you can help we will be very grateful.

Your Divine Valentine

A Valentine may play a love song for you, but God sings you the sweetest love song in the universe.
The Lord your God... will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. Zephaniah 3:17

A Valentine may give you flowers, but God sent you the most beautiful rose of all. Jesus.
I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.
Song of Solomon 2:1

A Valentine may bring you chocolate, but God provides you with something even sweeter, His Word.
How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Psalm 119:103

A Valentine may love you for a lifetime, but God loved you before you were born and will love you for all eternity.
Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love...with lovingkindness I have drawn you. Jeremiah 31:3

Praying you're blessed by the wonderful love of God this Valentine's Day and always!

Give Thanks

Let all things now living a song of thanksgiving
To God our creator triumphantly raise.
Who fashioned and made us, protected and stayed us,
Who guideth us on to the end of our days.
His banners are o'er us, His light goes before us,
A pillar of fire shining forth in the night.
Till shadows have vanished and darkness is banished
As forward we travel from light into Light.

His law he enforces, the stars in their courses
And sun in his orbit obediently shine;
The hills and the mountains, the rivers and fountains,
The deeps of the ocean proclaim him divine.
We too should be voicing our love and rejoicing;
With glad adoration a song let us raise
Till all things now living unite in thanksgiving:
"To God in the highest, Hosanna and praise!"
