Australia’s Peaceful Shores…..



Today I would like to say Thank you to Barb also a close Blogging friend, her Blog is called “bjsscribbles and photography” her focus is Australia as a gift from the Lord.

Barb is another one of my Top Commenters and was last year too, although she had a different Blog name than which you will see  on some of my Posts last year, her new link is – and like the others WordPress Staff in my very informative and  comprehensive Annual Report, suggested for me to personally thank Barb and my other Top Commenters  which I thought was a great idea, so I asked her what would she like the focus and theme to be if I created a Power point for her and she said Australia , I wonder why? and God’s Peace as the theme (see below) it worked in very well with Australia Day.

It was Barb’s Birthday yesterday so I’m also saying Happy Birthday to her, and right now she is not very well so would value your prayers too. I have been very Blessed to be able to share with Barb, she is gifted in expressing honestly how she feels in her Poetry and her Photography is true to life. I have found with her being a reasonably new Christian that she is very eager to Mature in her walk with The Lord and  appreciative of help when needed from all those willing to share.

Well it’s also Australia Day and yes a day I like to remember, if you have never heard our beautiful National Anthem than click on this link-

If you don’t have a Power point viewer this link is for a free one that you can download then click and enjoy the beauty of God’s Creation and the Truth of His Word –

Thank you and many Blessings for Australia Day wherever you Live.

Christian Love in our Unity in  Christ Jesus – Anne.

  1. Dear Anne,

    Geez I am trying to catch up with all of my friends post and I just saw this…I missed out on Australian day… or I spared all my co-worker from saying mate every other sentence! Just kidding happy belated Australian Day!




  2. Ron says:

    Thanks Anne for the Aussie Australia trip, the iconic koalas and kangas and all the Capitals, so lovely to see our beautiful Country, we always never fail to see how beautiful our Nation is. Happy Birthday Barb.



  3. A beautiful tribute to a beautiful country, Australia and to a beautiful person, Barb. A priceless Birthday gift my friend. A wonderful message too about peace, something I was to keep always and share to those around me. Thank you for the last comment. Happy Australia Day my friend and God bless you and your family always.


    • Many blessings to you too Island Traveler, you do indeed have the gift of genuine encouragement, I always feel uplifted when you visit. We have shared a lot of ourselves over the years on our Blogs, our ups and downs and to a new Blogger you show what it’s really all about and that is not just ourselves but others too, you have a very big heart dear friend.

      Christian Love Always – Anne


  4. Terri says:

    Wow, it is so beautiful there! I hope to get to come to your country some day to see it in person. Happy Australia Day!


  5. bjsscribbles says:

    Thank you my friend I have down loaded it but will save it till I am fit enough to think properly…I came on line to see it and know there would be loads of emails. I am going to be blocking emails and not posting anything for awhile


    • Sorry Barb that your still not well, you did not sound too good last night and I have been praying for you as I’m sure others are too. Remember your not alone dear friend, we are all your Christian Family, God is holding your hand and He sends His words of Love and Compassion through His Children, I think it would be better if you save their comments until you are well enough to respond but of course it is your choice, either way be assured people care.

      Christian Love Always – Anne

    Happy Australia Day, guys – hope the weather is great for you.


  7. Wally Fry says:

    Finally got that Power point to load..Wow and more Wow..very nice.


    • Thank you Wally for your uplifting and encouraging appreciation of Australia’s Peaceful Shores. I had lessons in creating Power points to learn the settings, with being Dyslectic I have to see someone doing it and the rest is God’s gifting like He gives you in finding Post Topics that get us thinking, they have deep and profound Truth, this is why it upsets me to hear others rubbish God who is the source of all Truth.

      We can’t reach those Wally who continually mock God and other Christians because unless there is real interest in knowing God’s Truth, not in their head but in their heart, they will continue in their foolishness and our listening to their abuse as they seek to be divisive with having no real confirmation of what they propagate, means we will end up joining in their folly by becoming like them in our attitude and responses to others and advice from fools who reject God in their heart leads to a dead end, as it also does with false teachers.

        Um…that would be something you said in a post with a cool powerpoint! Looks so beautiful down there…always wanted to see Australia.


        • Would you like me to create a Power point for you Wally, you can pick the focus and theme, I still have a few more Top Commenters to thank and I choose Power points to do so, also I have promised a few more to others who have touched my heart but so have you Wally, apart from making me think, you also bring out my humorous side, so if wanted I would be blessed to create a P.P for you too.

            That would be awesome Anne, but I would have to think about a focus and theme. Perhaps a pictorial overview, with scripture…of Creation, the Fall, The Death and Resurrection..and The End. Is that possible? Or way to large in scope?

            By the way. Thank you for saying I make you laugh. I like to do people laugh. For so many years I was very serious and somewhat dour and occasionally simply mean. One thing Jesus is teaching me daily is that if I just remember that He is in control, and not me..then there is room in life to actually enjoy it.

            That is but one of the ways Jesus changed me..As Paul said, all things become new..and I am a new creature in Jesus.

            Thanks Anne and blessings


            • Yes so True Wally, God gave us the gift of Laughter to use, thank you again for motivating me to use it, I think it is because you don’t take me the wrong way but appreciate my zaniness but also the same when I’m serious too, there is a time for everything except being mean, not that I think you could be, just to the point maybe and if so I’m guilty of that too but it’s not a crime it’s needed sometimes..

              Wow that would be a very big Power point Wally and much too long but I could do it in stages, if that is OK with you, I will start with Creation as per Scripture and follow with the rest, they will take more time than most as they are very deep subjects but they are great ones which we all need to understand. I have created a few others focusing on these topics but not in full detail, well now you have challenged me Wally and I’m looking forward to creating them after I finish the other ones, can I link them back to you?

              Thanks and Blessings – Anne.


  9. You are such a genius with that power point Anne. Wish I had that talent.


    • Hi Bob, thank you for your encouragement, I’m pleased you enjoyed the Power point but to be honest with being Dyslectic, I make lots of mistakes which WordPress would tell you about but their too kind.

      We all have gifts and being made in God’s likeness Creativity is one of them but how we use it is important and I thought you used yours well with your Slide Shows, they were short and to the point but got the message across well.

      Thank you again for commenting – Christian Love – Anne


      • As you know God has called me to nursing home ministry and I spend most of my time visiting the elderly now. Their spiritual needs are great and the workers are FEW here. In addition to visiting the elderly, I also conduct two bible studies a week, I have also been cutting lawns in the summer and plowing snow in the winter for extra money. For me, that leaves very little time for commenting.


        • I don’t post for comments Ann. I post to encourage the elderly. It is enough for me that the people God wants to read them get to read them. My posts are there, comment or like or just read. It makes no difference to me. My posts are available, that is all that matters to me. I got better things to do with my time than sit at my computer all day and respond to comments. I NEED to do what God tells me to do.


          • God tells us to consider others first Bob not just ourselves, Blogging is about others too not only what we want to share, write a book instead than you won’t have to respond to others who are seeking to encourage you.

            Giving thanks always includes others too but do as you please Bob as I shared if people choose to ignore comments than I don’t follow them but as a point of interest others feel the same and so a lot of Blogs die because a one way conversation is not very uplifting.

            Blessings – Anne


            • I started blogging again BECAUSE the directory of the nursing homes I visit ASKED me to. She thought it would be a good place for the Seniors there to go to get encouragement when I am not there to visit. So you see comments are not even necessary. My target audience is much different than yours. Do what YOU wish to do, and I will do what I wish to do. I found your comments here very insulting. I won’t visit your blog again and I would appreciate it if you would not visit mine. Goodbye Ann


              • You ignored my comments Bob not just on your Blog now but on your other Blogs too when you were not Blogging for the Elderly, and this is very insulting and rude too. I also would appreciate you not visiting me if you have no intention of responding to my comments when I visit you in response to encourage you too but your not the only one who shows that others who Blog don’t really matter and instead it’s what you say that is really the most important even when you are in error, perhaps you and them need to take to heart what God tells us in Scripture below and not Trust in just what you think is important.

                Blogging is about communication not a one man/woman show, it is courteous and kind to respond to those who share their thoughts and encouragement on our Blogs in response to our Post messages and most will agree but sadly not all.

                Philippians 2:1-6 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of Love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, Fulfill ye my joy, that ye be like-minded, having the same Love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

                Hebrews 10 24-25 And let us consider one another in order to stir up Love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.

                1John 4 :20 -21 If a man say, I Love God, and hateth his brother/sister, he is a liar: for he that Loveth not his brother/sister whom he hath seen, how can he Love God whom he/she hath not seen? And this Commandment have we from Him, That he who Loveth God Love his brother/sister also.

                Luke 6:38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

                1 John 3:16-18 By this we know Love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whoever has this world’s goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the Love of God abide in Him? My little children, let us not Love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in Truth. ( N.K.J.V)

                1 John 4:11-13 Beloved, if God so Loved us we ought also to Love one another. No man hath seen God at any time if we Love one another God dwelleth in us and His Love is Perfected in us. Hereby know we that we dwell in Him and He in us because He hath given us of His Spirit.(KJV)

                John 13:34-35, A new Commandment I give unto you, That ye Love one another; as I have Loved you, that ye also Love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my Disciples, if ye have Love one to another.

                1 Peter 3:7-9 Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, Love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous.

                Blessings- Anne


                • When you stop being judgemental and condescending with your comments and being so long winded and thinking you know it all, maybe I will reply to your comments. As for my other blogs, I am not sure what you are talking about and at this point, I don’t even care. Who do you think you are? You are NOBODY. You think you know it all, but all you are is stuck up. Mike Sweat was right, you are a basket case! And I do not want or need you, your comments, or anything about you!


                  • As hard as it is for you to believe Bob I do know what is needed to share when I comment and Post or are you calling God a liar, He tells us to ask for His wisdom and empowering which we were not Born with and we will receive them but not to doubt we have, which I don’t doubt, so are you saying God does not keep His promises or that He is a basket case too.

                    Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

                    James 1:5-6 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

                    Luke 11:13….. how much more shall your Heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him?

                    I can’t write fluently Bob, I’m Dyslectic, although I have improved since Blogging but mostly I’m lead in my comments by The Holy Spirit and at times what I share is new to me too but confirmed in Scripture, so do I tell Him to stop empowering me? Most of my comments have Scripture included as you know which also comes to my mind as I write and so this does make them longer and yes as God tells us to do, I correct error with the confirmation of Scripture too, so do you reject God’s correction in Scripture Bob like others do, ignoring them and deleting them too. Why does God use me I will leave you a link of all my qualifications

                    My qualifications-

                    But I don’t call people names or slander them behind their back or claim they are not people of worth by my words or actions, to me everyone has the right to express themselves but not abusively, when they do this I block them but until they do, I acknowledge by my responding to them not ignoring them that they have a right to respond to my messages.

                    With Atheists and False Teachers I’m the same giving them the right to respond too, I don’t ignore them either but I do correct them with Scripture until they continue to reject it or become abusive but yes I do warn others about them as we are told to do when they are in danger but I do so upfront and if there is no other way on my Blog and not behind their backs. I also don’t send hate mail abusing them and calling them unloving names or making suggestive advances to them as I have received from those who claim on their Blogs to be Loving Christians but treat others as less than people of worth and encourage others to do the same, which meant at the time Ron had to join me on my Blog for protection.

                    Yes I have rebuked those who sin as God tells us to do when shown by their ungodly actions and I do so in Love and for Love, as confirmed in Scripture, it is not Love to let Satan get a foothold in their lives but I don’t go by a fleshy abusive agenda, but by God’s Truth which means we have to judge them to do this.

                    2 Timothy 3:1-17 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

                    ALL SCRIPTURE IS GIVEN BY INSPIRATION OF GOD and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the Man/Woman of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. (KJV)

                  • Sorry Bob I should have included your Past Blogs names but the only one that is still active is Wendy’s, as you can see by the links below, I shared about her Bog on mine so others could rejoice and give thanks that God saved her life 4 times, many prayed for Wendy as she fought to live and I have no doubt God in His mercy saved her life and for this we need to be eternally grateful and continually give Him thanks.

                  • Just found a great quote Bob about being a Nobody and knew you would appreciate it, are you ready, it says……..

                    If Nobody’s Perfect….

                    I Must Be Nobody! and yes you agreed so I am … Thank you for being so astute you may just make it . Now don’t forget to tell Mike I’m Nobody…. Wow I should tell everybody!

                    Annie is awesome!


        • I’m pleased you made an effort , take care.
