A daily cup of water from The Well, each workday, Monday through Friday--
to bring you His refreshing Word; to boost your spirit and start your day!
Come to the Well and refresh your spirit, body and soul. There's enough for us all!
Chocolate De-Light!I got a delightful email card in yesterday's mail from a friend, announcing that it was National Chocolate Ice Cream Day and sending me the most scrumptious-looking virtual chocolate ice cream sundae you've ever seen. No calories--it LOOKED delicious! If you missed Chocolate Day yesterday, you've got my permission to take off work or doing the laundry or running the corporation TODAY, and run out right now and get yourself some REAL chocolate! If you've got kids, better take them with you!
One of my earliest kid memories is having been sent to the store to buy milk or bread. My mom watched at the window as I went...but she did not see me return "in due season." She watched and watched and eventually, she saw her little daughter sauntering down the street with a "buddy," chocolate ice cream running down both their faces. You see, on my way to the store, I encountered my friend who asked me how much money I had. I showed her and she promptly suggested, "You freat me and I'll freat you--and we'll both get some ice cream!" I wasn't too worldly-wise in those days--I spent the milk money on memorable chocolate, made a good friend, and got a good reprimand from my Mama!
Say "chocolate" and my eyes still light up--for you see, I've never outgrown the delight of indulging in creamy, crunchy, NUTTY chocolate...can't you just taste it now! Do our eyes also light up in delight when we hear the Name of Jesus? When we grab a morsel of delight from God's Word? When we share that morsel with another? Or has it become a hum-drum routine love affair--the chocolate's melted, the wonder's gone, de-light has gone out! Oh, that we would fall in love anew today with our Lord and Savior, to delight/re-light in His presence and rejoice in His love....THEN go light up someone else's "DE-lighted" eyes (and there's a lot of people in our world for whom the light's gone out!), as we share the light of His love--a smile, a hug, a word of encouragement--and yes, some CHOCOLATE too! Do it today--and go have yourself a DELIGHTFUL day!
Delight in a Word from the Well--a refreshing in the Water of His Word"Delight thyself also in the Lord, and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart (Psalm 37:4)."
"Ye are the light of the world...Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father, who is in heaven (Matthew 5:13,16)."
Draw from the Well--a prayer for renewing strength for this day"Lord, I delight in so many "earthy" pleasures, and sometimes, heaven's treasures become hum-drum and taken-for-granted. Please catch me and call me back when that happens--I want to delight in You and in Your love as much as YOU delight in me--and I know THAT'S alot! Thank You for the daily joy and delight You bring into my life through Your Word, Your people and Yourself! In Jesus' Name, Amen."
