Showers Of Joy


I Love You!

” I was Thinking that one morning I may not wake up and I asked myself…..

Do all my family and Friends including my Blogging Friends know that I Love them, have I taken the time to tell them?”

Although I look forward to each day and I’m very thankful for them I was wondering….. If I died today, tomorrow or next week, are there any wounds needing to be healed, friendships that need rekindling, relationships needing to be restored or three special words needing to be said.

So I decided to let everyone of my Family and Friends know I Love them and given the chance also those who consider me their enemy or judge my weakness and shortcomings critically and cannot Love me back.

But my family and Friends and even my enemies, need to know my Love for them is not based on what they do or don’t do or if they meet my needs or agree with me, it does not depend on how important they are in Society or how much wealth they have, nor how they look and it is not based on sentimental feelings that come and go.

My Love has a solid foundation which is unchangeable and constant it’s source comes from the reality of who they are in the Lord and how He sees them, so it’s not their acceptance and Love it’s His that keeps my Love constant and growing.

When I’m rejected by others through their words or actions and I choose to forgive them, The Lord gives me the strength to forgive and than to move on in Love not with bitterness and resentment and seeking revenge.

Although at times this may mean Separation which is never my will, I still continue to Love the person and forgive them even if I can’t accept their actions and because of negative influences this may mean although it is not as it should be, that we may not be able to continue sharing our lives together until there is genuine heart repentance and a willingness to change so our Unity in The Lord can be restored .

Although I endeavor to Live each today to the fullest without regrets seeking ways to show Love and kindness to others, I sometimes fail and need forgiveness and encouragement to keep trying and not to give up, to keep aiming to be Perfected in Love.

Sometimes I will also need correction or to be warned or to warn and correct someone else when they are heading in the wrong direction or are in error but this is not based on theirs or my own understanding, feelings or needs but always on God’s Truth.

On this earth Tomorrow is not promised, only in Eternity can we be sure
of a Tomorrow that promises, Hope, Peace and Joy
which will be never ending and truly fulfilling.

So just in case God calls me home before I see you again
I’m taking the opportunity to tell you personally now…..

That I Love You and always will but remember this does not depend on you or me forcing ourselves to Love but on God as we choose to Love and
allow Him to Empower us and than to show
His Love in Words and Actions.

Thank you for your Friendship which brings me Showers of Joy!

Christian Love Always Your Friend Anne.

    Wonderfully written, Anne. I am inspired. It’s easy to forget, living in rural America, that in so many places in the world people part ways in the morning and may never see each other again. You remind me to always leave on a pleasant, loving note, trusting that we’ll return, but knowing if we don’t, we’ve not left without peace between us.

    And thanks for stopping by JonahzSong and liking Mincemeat Tart. I mentioned to someone else that it was so easy to write, as it just flowed from me. I had some fun with it. It’s all about food and Mom and on becoming Who I Am today.

    Lord Bless, Keep, Shine upon and through you always. Wil.

      Thanks again Wil – Christian Love Always – Anne

    • Thank you Joanna, I often read your comments to others on their Post Messages and your words always reflect your heart focus which is very Loving, you are very easy to choose to Love Joanna.

      As I shared with T, I received an e-mail that didn’t have an Author but the friend who sent it said it was how she felt about me, which greatly touched my heart, so using it as a guideline, I wrote this one, I felt there is so much hurt today people need to know we Love them and of course Jesus Loved them first, it’s His Love that makes ours real and Everlasting when we choose to Love Him and others.

      I would so much enjoy talking to you on the Phone Joanna, is that possible? if so I will call you from Australia, if you edit one of my comments you will find my e-mail address so you can let me know.

      Christian Love Always dear Joanna and many Blessings – Anne.


  4. There’s another song about Love, which sprung to my mind after reading your post
    Love is something if you give it away
    Many have written about love, including myself, but the love that Jesus showed when He lay down His life is the deepest kind of love

    • Very True Graham and that is why I wrote the paragraph below in my Post Message above and why I now mostly sign Christian Love Always – Anne…”God’s Love is Eternal” which does not mean He accepts what we do and say that is wrong but He forgives us when we Repent from the Heart, which means we don’t continue to do evil.

      I wrote ………So just in case God calls me home before I see you again, I’m taking the opportunity to tell you personally now That I Love You and always will but remember this does not depend on you or me forcing ourselves to Love but on God as we choose to Love and allow Him to Empower us and than to show His Love in Words and Actions.

    1 Corinthians 13:13 – “And now these three remain; faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” Love to you Annie as we share faith, hope, and love!

    • I Love you too Debbie in Christ Jesus, you are very precious to me and I’m sure to many others too and Jesus first.

      1Corinthians13 is my favorite Scripture and they say foolishly 13 is unlucky , which reminds me Debbie, have you ever posted about Superstition ? or as the Scriptures call it, Old Wives Tales, I would be very interested in your views about what is part of Satan’s deception today as it was in the past too, I’m sure some people still live in fear apart from Mo-Joe of black cats.

      Christian Love Always – Anne.


  6. A Friend of the Heart is from the Start a Faithful Friend and their Friendship remains through all that life brings and has no end.

    • Wow T what a Beautiful Heart thought, Thank you dear Friend and you too are and have always been very precious to me. I remember when I first joined up with you and yes you were a New Christian but I was overwhelmed by your Honesty and Heart Love for The Lord and others and I still am years later.

      I received an e-mail that didn’t have an author but the friend who sent it said it was how she felt about me, which greatly touched my heart, so using it as a guideline, I wrote this one, I felt there is so much hurt today people need to know we Love them and of course Jesus did first, it’s His Love that makes ours real and Everlasting.

    What a beautiful post!!!! I’ll re log it when I can get on my computer so I can write an appropriate sentiment! This is so timely with all the angst and division here in the USA 🇺🇸 on Election Day!

    • Thank you Debbie for your wanting to Reblog, I appreciate you wanting to share a message of Love with others but if wanted why don’t you write a message yourself expressing your own feelings, I received an e-mail with a similar message to this one of mine which motivated me to write my own but of course it’s your choice I will be blessed either way.

      I have been wanting to visit you Debbie for some time but I had a few problems to resolve and with Blogging too, such is life but I have saved your Posts and noticed you shared about the Elections, how do you feel now?

      Christian Love Always – Anne.

        Hi sweet Anne! I’m ecstatic and am praising God that He once again allowed a David to defeat a Goliath! It was a TRUE miracle! I’ll be especially good for my daughter and her family who suffered a financial setback when my son in law was laid off after 15 years with the only company he’s worked for as an adult! They’ll get tax relief for sure. Just so many good things will now happen.
        You are right, I should write my own post….but we’re on a weak wifi so my writing is hampered….I have 2 blogs, my own personal and then my husband’s and my travel blog-which takes priority.
        So what are your observations about our election?

        • Yes good news dear Debbie, I shared why on your Blog Post called “I’ve grown to respect Donald Trump” I hope it is also good in regards to those who have been wrongly treated as you shared about in regards to your family.

          God gives us what we want, in other words He does not oppose our choice, we have free will and we reap what we sow, if we sow for good it will be good fruit that results and this is the same if we choose bad, we suffer for doing so unless we repent. It is why Hitler was voted in and why many suffered because he was. God does not want Puppets but for us too choose good over evil.

          Christian Love Always – Anne.

            • That’s great Debbie, I will visit again soon, I was going to share about Donald Trump myself and all the Caring things he did for others that you shared about but that are not very well known in the Media but being an Aussie I felt it would be better coming from a American, so I was thinking about Reblogging your Post Message where you share about them and also add a few words about his support of the Church which someone told me he did very strongly.

              But what I’m not sure about Debbie is what Church does he support ? I don’t mean what Denomination but is it God’s True Church which is World wide and is of the Heart or is it the World’s Church where they accept all Religions and beliefs and claim they are acceptable to God. I hope you can clarify this for me Debbie but if not than I will need to check it out myself.

              Christian Love Always – Anne.

                To be honest, I’m not sure. An evangelical led him to the Lord but I’m not sure if she got him connected to a church! I led someone to the Lord once and forget to do that myself because you’re so excited! Ugh but it’s a serious mistake….I’ve prayed for this young man to get connected as he shares his new faith. Donald is a baby Christian if anything. He’s surrounded by men of God so we can pray he is mentored! I know he is very kind and non-judgmental. Caitlin Jenner (formerly Bruce Jenner) was visiting in one of his buildings and asked what bathroom to use? Donald said which ever one is comfortable. That was very kind! How would I handled that? I’d stutter and stammer and probably offer to pray!!! Trump is none of the names he’s been called! Are you on Twitter or FaceBook? I have something else to share. I think we fundamentalist can learn from him….

    • Those that I have led to the Lord Debbie that I know of, are in Fellowship, which I Thank God for, there have been others where seeds were planted, so there may be more that are not in Fellowship, as for the others, we are not to judge anyone’s Eternal Destiny only God knows their hearts, they may still come to heart repentance before they die if they haven’t already.

      As for accepting what God calls evil, No I don’t and hopefully when Don Matures as a Christian he won’t either but as a babe I made many mistakes too some lead me into Sin I’m very Thankful I was rebuked by those who Loved me enough to do so, I don’t think they were at all judgmental in fact they saved my life.

      I will leave a link for you Debbie that shares why I feel this way about those who agree and practice what God calls evil. I don’t condone what I have done wrong or what others do that is evil too and will Rebuke them and correct their errors just as God asks us to do.


      Christian Love Always – Anne.


      • Debbie L says:

        Thank you! I agree. And it was Adam and Eve! I feel so sad for Caitlin/Bruce! How mixed up and confused one must be to mutilate them self! But no matter, it’s extraordinary to be so kind! And that’s what we are called to be. Yes, rebuke our brothers and sisters-but even that must be done properly. Trump has selected a guy man to be part of his administration. In our culture, we can’t shun them-that doesn’t work. But we must pray for them and let God’s live flow thru us to them and everyone we meet. As far as I know, we don’t have any relatives who are gay. I can’t imagine someone you love being that mixed up. But love wins them over….I met a gay man who found the Lord by love shown to him. He was delivered and was ever so grateful.
        I know God has used me to plant and water but only a few times to actually be blessed to bring them to the Lord. Fellowship is vital to our growth!
        I’ll read your post-I’m sure we are in agreement!

        • Very True Debbie, it’s not what we say in Rebuke, it is how we say it, which must always be in Love and for Love and not based on a Worldly agenda but based on God’s Truth.

          To see someone heading for a Cliff which would be sure death and not warn them is not Love, the same with watching our Christian Brothers and Sisters allowing Satan to have a foothold in their lives because of their Sin which leads to Spiritual death. It is not Love to look the other way but often it is the fear of being rejected if they do Rebuke them.

          I’m sad to hear Debbie that you will now have a Homosexual in power in your American Government, this will no doubt lead to acceptance of the evil they propagate, laws will be made and changed to accommodate their lifestyle, as are even Toilets today in Australia, are they in America?

          God tells us not to call evil good or good evil but sadly today this happens frequently. He warned that in the end times it will be like the time of Noah, evil will be rampant but accepted as OK.

          We are to be the Salt in the World but what if we loose our Saltiness and water down God’s Truth for acceptance or for any other reason, lets not let that happen, God asks us who will contend with Him against Evil and who will Stand up for His Truth. Lets Always do it!

          Blessings- Anne.

            Obama wrote an executive order mandating the public school system open the bathrooms. Thankfully the schools rebelled as it is a local issue. Some communities have had a transgender child-the parents sued to let him use the girls bathrooms This is so tragic!
            I agree it must be done in love, to rebuke. We’re just not easily trained to do this in love! There is so much division within our local churches, we can’t love our brethren, how can we love anyone? And therein lies the problem! A sister in Christ from my last church was very hateful about my posts supporting Trump-which I clearly stated was because of Hillary’s pro-abortion stance….oh my! No wonder America is under God’s judgement! I’ve written a post how to love the unlovely….
            Right now Trump has to appease some groups to quell the riots….The gays who support him support his fiscal conservatism.
            Anyway we had a fabulous sermon about how we need to PRAY more than ever and let our lights shine. I hope to write a post about it….
