Being able to go out every day. The sound of rain, so peaceful. Being free in Christ.
---Helen_5378 on 11/16/06

A childs giggle, the sound or rain, a kite flying high, the sound of a train whistle, puppies and kittens, a summer day with lemonade, crips fall weather and the bright leaves, fresh fallen snow, a fire place and a good book, watching a good sports game with family, the first spring flowers, Old people still holding hands, a good cup of coffee, holidays, Christmas lights, a good joke,the quiet of night, The story of Jesus birth to rising again, the sound of classical music, a smile.

Unexpected time a passion flower came up and bloomed that I didn't plant. Another time a delicate mosslike plant with tiny crimson flowers came up on its own. Once I saw the end of a rainbow touching down on a road.

---Eloy on 7/18/05

I am very happy that Kathy and I made contact again!! I missed her Emails!!!!!!!!!

---jd on 7/15/05

Eloy, and others of the Forum Family, when I die or go in the Rapture I shall take ALL things to Heaven that belong to me to be enjoyed for eternity.

The only thing that belongs to me is Gods Salvation and it was given to me by Jesus Christ.

I really do have it all.
---Elder on 6/24/05

Eloy, you sent me a message on a PC. You have knowledge. That is something.

Let me tell you about myself.
I have Jet Aircraft, Ocean Liners, Passenger Trains and more at my disposal. I have Silver and Gold stored in vaults. I have houses and land.

I have housing available to me anywhere in this world and health care supreme. I have enough money to buy anything sold. Food is never a problem, clothes and the other things are stored just waiting for my use.
Cond #2-->
---Elder on 6/24/05

Cond #2-->
All of these things are ready for me right when I need them. They are not available to me when I think I need them. But, WHEN I NEED THEM!

God is in control of all of this. If you don't have something you think you need it is because you don't really need it.

You are the clay and not the potter. The potter makes things of use and beauty fashioned His way. There are many items fashioned that will hold water for others.
Cond #3--->
---Elder on 6/24/05

Cond #3--->
Some have handles, some don't. They were all fashioned valuable if they serve the purpose of the potter.

In having nothing you have all.

God made a special flower for you today. Go find it and tell us about it when you do. You will be surprised where you will find it.

Flowers smell good for our pleasure, not God's. He knows what they smell like.

Press it between the pages of your mind and realize that God supplies all our needs by Jesus, Phil 4:19
---Elder on 6/24/05

Eloy cont.- Elder just sent to you some annointing soaked Words of Life straight from the heart of Jesus...Eloy you are blessed, your emotions dont know it but they are not you,they belong to you, and believe it or not, you can take charge of them. Get spiritual counselling now, go for help. reach out and take it.. this is urgent do not delay you are worth it!!!

Eloy dear, I dont know what you are going through and it really doesnt matter who has suffered more but you said you have a job, so you dont have nothing. You havent suffered through a beating with a cat of nine tails and crucifixion for being completey innocent. You are Loved and cherished by Almighty God and many tenderhearted caring people.

...the sparkle in the eyes of a student when a difficult concept is understood... and the smile of satisfaction on the faces of the students when a diificult problem is finally solved...
---linda6546 on 6/23/05

I have pleasure in the fact I am no longer beaten with words. I don't have diseases. I can breath with out trouble. I know my kids are following God. I see how people with out God suffer with sin. though I don't like my job, I do have a job. friends who care about me, pray for me.
---laure5469 on 6/23/05

Elder, thanks. If i were the potter instead of the clay, things surely would look different. Jacob, Job, and Jesus altogether had better lives than i. i may not understand, but i do know that grace comes to the lowly, to one such as i. i find solace in that each day that passes, i am one day closer to the end. Noone can take that away from me. And there is a blessing in not having anything, for nobody can take that away from me either.
---Eloy on 6/23/05

Eloy, when you realize that God has PLACED you for His purpose things will look different.

God makes me see the humor in almost everything but He has placed me also.

It is not so much as doing what I want as doing what He wants.
I see with my eyes He sees with His heart.
I know with my experience He knows with His Holiness.
My plan is my success, His plan is my purpose.

I can't lose because He has never lost.
---Elder on 6/22/05

my husband's kisses, seeing people be kind to each other, playing with my 4-yr old nephew, watching people use their gifts in witnessing to others, seeing other people be happy, ice cream, rainbows, flowers, growing tomatoes, seeing lost people be transformed by Jesus, completing a difficult task, helping others

You are all very wonderful people, and i do love you all, each one special. i just have lost so much, i have nothing. i'm cheated and neglected, and i am kept so very lowly and downtrodden all the time. i've gone to college, but the job i'm doing is not what i went to college for. i try very hard to get ahead, i make a little progress and then wham! i'm knocked back down further then before. You all are very blessed people of God. And i really do thank you for your prayers, i really cherish them.
---Eloy on 6/22/05

Prov. 14:30a A sound heart is life to the body
17:20a He who has a deceitful (froward or crooked) heart finds no good
17:22 A merry heart does good, like medicine,
But a broken spirit drys the bones.

If you are having difficulty finding good simple joyful things, ask God to show you what is in your heart so that you can release it to Jesus. Several layers may be peeled off before you get to the root. Always fear.
Trust Jesus with Mt11:28-30

Sam your lists make me very happy. Every one of them would be on my list even the purple hair. I have dyed my sons hair many colors. The deep pink was my favorite.
Eloy precious Eloy............God loves you so very much and wants to hear you laugh
---rachel on 6/21/05

Eloy look at Sam's lists. It seems you want ONE thing and you will never be happy until you have it. I have heard you laugh, I know you love music. We HAVE to learn to appreciate these small things that God puts here for our pleasure. Don't dig that hole so deep that you can't escape. We love you here, is that not a small joy to you? Happiness may take practice!

Happiness is peace & contentment within yourself you cannot buy it. you cannot give it away, you can show it by attitude & is acquired by the love of God within oneself,when you are full of grace & gods love you just experience it My cup runneth over.
---Emcee on 6/21/05

---bethie on 6/21/05

Hearing a room full of children laughing (whether it's at the antics of a clown or just a show featuring pets). I love holding hands and cuddling. I enjoy watching fireworks, sunsets, and families interacting. The grandest joy comes from seeing a dog/puppy notice me and watching his/her tail wag like a helicopter blade! (Dogs touch the core of my soul!)

Walking in our native bush.

---Eloy on 6/21/05

Seeing my adult children becoming nicer by the day since they accepted the Lord. Having my grandchildren all to myself for several hours. Listening to (certain) gospel music when I'm totally alone and am able to let myself go. Being able to sit outside on a nice sunny (but not too hot) day and just do nothing (rare for me because I'm always on the go and rare in U.K. because of our climate).

The simple things I enjoy are similar to Madison's. I walk in the mornings, or after the sun goes down and its a peaceful time with me and the Lord. My husband and I often walk together and pray our daily prayers as we walk. I love to lie down for half hour after my work is done and have my cat curl up with me, purring and loving.I have a large rose garden that I take joy in. A good heartfelt chat with my husband or son is a joy.
