"Good morning world is it better to Give, or Receive? And thinking about Giving and receiving what are you thankful for?
Then thinking some more about receiving, while thinking much less about giving, as we are reflecting on Thanksgiving....
are you simply thankful for things?
Okay be honest....
with every person in your life disappointing you from time to time….
are you only thankful for every THING….. your good fortune brings?
Are you only thankful for all of the things you receive on a daily basis?
And thinking about things related to being thankful…..
what are you grateful for when you think about Thanksgiving?
Well I'm sure we're all thinking about the same things....
Because we are all Thankful for THINGS!
Of course we are also thankful for our families!
we are Thankful for our homes.
And almost everyone I know is still thankful for their jobs.
Furthermore most of us are thankful every day for the fact that we are sane .
But in the thought of Thanksgiving…. linked with needed sanity are we instead really quite insane....
as worship our things?
Then also thinking about all the things we have received
not thinking about anything we are giving
What is more important…
giving or receiving?
Then reflecting on the words receiving and Thanks GIVING....
what are you giving that is making somebody else happy?
Are you giving money.
Are you giving your time to somebody.
Are you giving food.
Are you giving comfort.
Are you doing anything for anybody,
or in review is life all about you?
And asking you what you are
giving or receiving….
have you noticed that
receiving and giving are both defining Thanks-GIVING!
Accordingly again wondering is it better to give or receive….
I will agree material Things are sweet!
Yes I too love the neat things I receive!
But WAIT aren’t we missing something?
And the answer is YES we are missing
Subsequently in that something we are missing that defines
we have to remember
receiving is not a bad thing!
Because in receiving is actually found the most perfect word of Giving!
Therefore when I think about what we have been given….
I first have to think of the
PERFECT GIFT of heaven!
And when I think of heaven that is defined by salvation.... I realize it is up to us every day to share the greatest sweetest gift we will ever receive.
Yes it is up to each of us who know Jesus to tell others shore to shore....
that receiving is a wonderful thing…..when you receive your salvation and ask Jesus Christ to come into your life!
Because it is in the GIVING….
where the Heavenly receiving gift will always be found.
So just as Jesus Christ freely and sweetly Gives us the gift of Paradise,
it is up to us to share that gift with everyone we know day and night!
Therefore we all must tell everybody we know, or don't know, including anybody we see that simply, and sweetly…..just by accepting Jesus Christ they too will have eternal life!
And that my friend is the eternal GIFT that we each must receive….
Because salvation is the GIFT....
that keeps on GIVING!” Joslin Fitzgerald

Your Prayer of Salvation
Dear Jesus, I know I have done bad things in the past, and that I have done bad things today, and that I will continue to do bad things tomorrow as I am going along my way. Yes that makes me a sinner, just like everyone else in the world every day, with all of the bad things I am doing and saying.
So, because I am a sinner I know I need a Savior....
Therefore my sins and my unhappiness are why I have come to you today, as I am silently praying, because I want to be eternally happy, and I need to be forever saved.
In saying that Jesus, I believe that you were born on Christmas Day. I believe Jesus, that you lived a perfect life that is written down in the Bible to teach me what is wrong, and show me what is right. And I believe Jesus, in your love for me that you died on the Cross to save me from all of my sins day and night. Yes Jesus I believe you died, and defeated the grave as you arose from the dead on the third day. Yes I believe you are Alive forevermore and that you are living inside my heart and soul eternally night and day!
Thus in believing Jesus, you are the Son of God I am asking for your forgiveness for all my sins that I know, and those I do not know that I have committed, including the ones that I will continue to daily wallow in, as I claim in Your Eternal scriptural promise in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit that I am now going to heaven.
Yes I claim in my new faith this very Minute that I am saved, because you died for me on the Cross, and in your arising on the third day, I know I will not go to my endless grave. In that statement that just saved my life Thank you Jesus, I am now whole since the Holy Spirit lives within my soul!
Therefore in this prayer I believe that I am born again into heavens sight, and in your Biblical Promise of salvation written in the scriptures I have received everlasting life! Thus as I am asking you to change my blind darkness to guiding light you are forever my Savior, Jesus Christ.
Absolutely I pray that you have accepted Jesus Christ as your eternal guiding light, and your Savior today. I know I may never meet you here on earth as we are roaming, but if you truly prayed your prayer, to Jesus requesting forgiveness of your sins, and asking for your salvation you are right now this second saved. And I will see you when we go Away back home!
