My sister Judy passed on to be with the Lord over two years ago. Judy had brain damage due to being dropped as a baby by a woman who was helping my Mom. Judy was made fun of from the time she started school. My brother and I beat up everybody who even started to make fun of her coming and leaving school, as well as thereafter until we married.

Judy was so innocent, she loved everybody and expected people to love her back, and as she became an adult most everybody did respect her and knew the minute she came in the door they would receive a big hug and smile. She knew those who didn't like her and tried to make her feel like she was stupid, and wisely stayed away from them. She would get her feelings hurt, but always forgave those who hurt her. We would tell her they are just ignorant and don't understand you.

We led her to a personal knowledge of Jesus Christ and she loved to sing for Jesus and others, with a God-given talent. In church, she would sing a little louder than others but nobody really minded, she sang from the heart. Those of you reading this from Maine, miss her hugs and laughter. She married a Christian man who loved her from the time he laid eyes on her and they were happy together. Ron was "special" as well because he loved the Lord.

I am telling you all of this because some of you feel you just don't belong anyplace, you don't seem to "fit in" but you also are "special", we all are. When you know Jesus as your Saviour He accepts you just where you are no matter what you have done or where you have been. We walk by faith remember, not feelings. Ephesians 2:8, tells us "For by grace are you saved through faith; not of yourselves it is the gift of God." continue on and read the rest of the chapter. Stop listening to the devil, he is the father of lies. If he can convince you that you are not worthy of being called a Christian and you listen to him, you will never be the man or woman of God you are called to be. It is the blood that Jesus shed alone that makes you worthy and empowers you to be a child of God. God does not see anything but the beauty he has created in you; you just have to see it yourself.

Proverbs 23:7 "As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he."
Next time, I will speak about that! Walk in God's peace when all around us many folks are falling away from the Lord. Just want you to know we love you!
