"MORE PRECIOUS THAN SILVER"...
First song this morning that caught my attention was sung by children:
Señor, Tú eres más preciosa que la plata y
Señor, Tú eres más costoso que el oro y
Señor, Tú eres más brillante que el diamante y
Nada lo que hay compare en Tí!!! Lord You are more precious than Silver!
Lord You are more costly than gold!
Lord You are more beautiful than diamonds!
And nothing in this world compares to You!
A very simple song written in 1992 and sung by Lynn DeShazo.
If only we had raised or taught our children this principle, how PRECIOUS is life:
their life, other's lives, Our sweet Jesus' life...
perhaps than we would not be hearing of such violence everywhere,
perhaps than our schools would be a safe haven for learning,
perhaps than our nation would not be fighting a war against terroism...
TODAY, in México, it is Día de Los Niños, Children's Day!
Celebrate the lives of your children, make them each feel important!
Though this song is meant and sung to the Glory of Our Precious Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Look what He says in Matthew, Mark, and Luke. Know without a doubt, Jesus sees each and every child with potential, that they indeed are a treasure in His Kingdom, more precious than silver, gold or diamonds.
Though we are a glorious nation, with hearts as big as gold, we have forgotten "the children", we have forgotten to teach them values that result in more giving than receiving, the necessities not the "brand names"...because we wanted them to have the BEST!
Though Mexico is poor, they know how to bless the children. The very poorest children, with dirt on their faces, seem more happy than the ones with much. They have big hopes and dreams to have all that but meanwhile, they have something that is priceless: A SMILE and a GOD that loves them.

Thankful Thursday: Honoring Helen, April 17th, 2008.
The kids pictured below are waiting for a ham sandwich "torta", a bottle of water and a fruit, given out by the Vineyard Church here in Mazatlan. They live in a colony right down from the dumpsite. In the past, they use to go and work along side their parents in the dumps. Now, because of Vineyard, they have a school and go to school and no longer can work in the dumps! Thank you Jesus, for each child that comes to know you!
PLEASE PRAY FOR THE CHILDREN TODAY HERE AND IN YOUR HOME! THANKS!
BE A KID! ENJOY YOURSELF! and HAVE A HAPPY KID'S DAY with other KIDS!
My intent was to give the History of Children's day in Mexico and even USA. Check it out at: http://www.texasdia.org/history.html
