Shirley and Marcy

Author: Kevin and Corrie  //  Category: Other things

A mom was concerned about her kindergarten son walking to school. He didn’t want his mother to walk with him. She wanted to give him the feeling that he had some independence but yet know that he was safe.

So she had an idea of how to handle it.. She asked a neighbor if she would please follow him to school in the  mornings, staying at a distance, so he probably wouldn’t notice her.

She said that since she was up early with her toddler anyway, it would be a good way for them to get some exercise as well, so she agreed.

The next school day, the neighbor and her little girl set out following behind Timmy as he walked to school with another neighbor girl he knew. She did this for the whole week.

As the two walked and chatted, kicking stones and twigs, Timmy’s little friend noticed the same lady was following them as she seemed to do every day all week.

Finally she said to Timmy, ‘Have you noticed that lady following us to school all week?

Do you know her?’

Timmy nonchalantly replied, ‘Yeah, I know who she is.’

The little girl said, ‘Well, who is she?’

‘That’s just Shirley Goodnest,’ Timmy replied, ‘and her daughter Marcy.’

‘Shirley Goodnest? Who the heck is she and why is she following us? ‘

‘Well,’ Timmy explained, ‘every night my Mom makes me say the 23rd Psalm with my prayers, ‘cuz she worries about me so much. And in the Psalm, it says, ‘Shirley Goodnest and Marcy shall follow me all the days of my life’,  so I guess I’ll just have to get used to it!’

The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face to shine upon you, and be gracious unto you; the Lord lift His countenance upon you,and give you peace.

May Shirley Goodnest and Marcy be with you today and always.. I know you smiled! I sure did, Pass this on and brighten someone’s day!

Bible verses to live by!

Author: Kevin and Corrie  //  Category: Verses & Quotes

I’ve been searching the Bible for a couple different Bible verses and found what I was looking for. They are definitely verses to remember, say everyday, and to live by. Here are the three I was looking for.

Philippians 4:13

I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.

Matthew 21:22

And all things, whatsoever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive.

Mark 11:24

Therefore I say unto you, what things soever you desire, when you pray, believe  that you receive them, and you shall have them.

I hope these verses mean as much to you as the do for me.
