God is Able


God Is Able


One of the great truths of God's Word that always gives me hope is that God's Word will not return to Him void.  Even if every attempt to share God's Word were to be intercepted by some unknown source, He promises our efforts will not be in vein.  Though it seems our efforts of love and faithfulness seem to fall to the ground.  We know that God will never lie and cannot lie.  If an enemy were to twist our motives and make our attempts to serve God to appear as something evil.  God knows the heart and has power over life and death.  He holds the very heart of our enemy in His hand.  Our hope is in Jesus, this life is temporal.   Let us look forward loving Jesus all the way. 



Though this life has many tears and disappointments, many failures and discouragements.  Our future is sure. His promises stand and our HOPE is alive.  God is most certainly able.  Just as He was able to deliver The three Hebrew children from the fiery furnace, just as He was  able to deliver Daniel from the hungry lions jaws, just as God is able to make all grace abound toward us , just as He is able to save to the uttermost those that come to Him.  He is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.
Continue in His hope.  Continue with joy.  Continue with faith, Continue with love, Continue with courage, Continue with strength, Continue with confidence. Continue in His peace.  Because God never throws His babies away and His Word never returns to Him void. 
How wonderful it is to be a child of God. 
Ephesians 3:20

Just A Little Note About My Life



Just A Little Note About My Life


I have become very busy lately and if anyone in the whole wide world really wants to know why I haven't been posting, it's because I have been helping with a moving sale. My neighbors just a couple houses up are moving and we are helping her clean, lift and price. Well, somehow I hurt my back and I've been having back spasms going on my third day. I wasn't able to do my scheduled volunteer work at the hospital, not only did I forget all about working on every forth Tuesday of the month, I didn't find a replacement to fill my spot. I was very disappointed in myself. I strive to be a dependable person. When I'm not used to my schedule I sometimes forget things.


My daughters and I are also helping close family friends with a wedding happening in August. So we have been busy with centerpiece flower arrangements, flower bouquets, decorating the arch and planning the reception hall and making decorations.


I still haven't finished putting mulch on the side of my home. So it is still sitting in my driveway waiting for my back to get better. I enjoy taking care of my flower gardens even if I do a little at a time.  Everything looks very beautiful this time of year.


Then just the everyday tasks of the home and cooking for my family.


I wrote all of this just to let you all  know-  I haven't forgotten you and I'm not quitting. You are in my prayers always.


We found a very old copy of Robert Louis Stevenson book for children called, Childs Book Of Verse - The first addition. It's illustrated. The book is sold online for 180.00. We are selling it for 100.00. The moving sale begins this week. Pray that it goes well.

He Is - Song



He Is




Song
by: Susan Y Nikitenko   October 2009

He is the sunshine in my heart.
He is the twinkle in my eye.
He is the glow upon my face;
And He’s the friend, whom I rely.

He is the calmness in my trouble.
He is the peace that fills my soul.
He is the rose of sweet assurance;
And the one who makes me whole.

He is the song I love to sing.
He is the tune I love to play.
He is the reason that I live;
And He’s the joy that fills my day.

He is the hug, when comforts needed.
He is the place I rest my head.
He is the one who dries my tears;
While there, I’m grieving on my bed.

He is the answer to men’s longings.
He is the water for that thirst.
He satisfies that empty place;
He is the one we must put first.

He is the mercy that will pardon.
He is the hand that reaches out.
He forgives and He is calling.
He loves you, there’s no doubt.

He is waiting now for you to call;
He’s provided you, The Way.
He is listening for that humble cry;
Will you trust Him, now, today?

Will you trust Him, now, today?


If You Ever See Something Special In Me - It's Jesus

Every Day Is A New Day - Song


Every Day  Is A New Day

A Happy Song- By: Susan Y Nikitenko


Every day  Is a new day;
To serve the Lord happily.
Another day to praise Him;
Singing  of Him cheerfully.

Every day Is a new day;
To be all you can be.
Another day to rejoice;
For both home and family.

Every day  is a new day;
A day to laugh and love and play.
Another day to thank Him;
For the blessings of each day.

If I could go back in time;
I'd change a thing or two.
I'd love you more than ever;
And appreciate you.

With much admiration.
Have a happy Fathers Day;
With love and celebration.

The Blessing Of My Dad

The Blessing Of My Dad

There are many blessings that we share;
That God has given everywhere.
But no blessing  that I've ever had;
Is like the blessing of my dad.

The Best Dad Ever



The Best Dad Ever


 Susan Y Nikitenko

June 15th, 2012



If you are a daddy,  that truly cares;
You would protect your children.
Their hearts, their souls and their minds;
From the trapping arms of sin.

You'd  keep them safe from dangers;
That lay await out of sight.
You'd pray with them and hold them;
And love them and Mommy right.

You'd take the time to teach them;
To love others and forgive.
You'd make some time just for them;
A time  to laugh and love and live.

You'd  set aside your hardness;
Sometimes sing a silly song.
Sometimes play a silly game.
These memories last - a life long.

You'd know the dangers that lurk;
Within this media world.
You'd shield them from the dangers;
Seeking refuge in the Lord.

You'd not exploit your children;
For someone standing by.
Because it could be your child;
That would catch their seeking eye.

To be the best dad ever;
Live in love, the Bible way.
Stand strong upon principles;
Seek the Lord and always pray.

God will help you be the dad;
He intends for you to be.
A man of strength and honor;
And responsibility.

Sweet Dreams


Sweet Dreams

By: Susan Y Nikitenko
2009
(You May Change To Daddy)

A little child reaches up;
For his mothers hold.
She puts him in her lap;
Her arms around him fold.

Comforted, “I love you mommy.”
She says, “I love you too.”
“Now it’s time for beddy bye.”
“You know what you must do.”

He kneels beside his little bed.
“Mommy, you come down too.”
He folds His little hands;
He Prays, until He’s through.

He climbs into His bed.
She tucks Him in real tight.
“Sweet Dreams, my little man.”
Then kisses him good night.

In peace now, from her love;
He drifts into sweet sleep.
Mama humbly bows on knees;
And silently she weeps.

“Lord, I ask you, bless my boy;
To grow, and be like you.”
“Give me, the grace to teach him,”
“How to live and love you too.”

“Spread angel’s wings about him.”
“Protect him from this world.”
“Keep him in your perfect plan;
Living by your Holy Sword.” (Bible)

Are you like a child in need?
Is Jesus Christ your Lord?
Do you need deliverance;
From the trappings of this world?

Is it hard for you to sleep?
Does your heart long for relief?
Father God will comfort you;
And bless with bless-ed peace.

Just as mother, does to child;
The Father holds us tight.
He guides us through decision;
And protects us in the night.

He sends His angels near;
To catch our every tear.
And when we need a sense of love;
We sense His presence there.

“I love you Lord.” You’ll say.
“I love you too.” You’ll hear.
Then in rest you'll drift in sleep;
Your soul quiet, from all fear.

“Sweet dreams, my child, sweet dreams;”
“Rest now in my loving you.”
“I am your Father, you are my child;
"I will never- ever leave you;.”


Isaiah 26:3
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed on thee:
because he trusteth in thee.


Lord, help me to trust you more each day.

Lord, help me to love you more I pray.

Lord, lead me, to walk in your holy way.

Lord, strengthen my faith, help me not stray.

Lord, hide me behind the cross today.


Susan Nikitenko

There Is Only One You

There Is Only One You


Susan Y Nikitenko
June 9th, 2012

If someone said you were not special;
This assertion is not true.
Though you must work with all your heart;
There is no one -  just like you.

You were planned and purposed by our maker;
Before you were ever born.
You are one of His unique creations;
In love and thought you were formed.

There is only one you..

God Forms The Clay

God Forms The Clay




 When the sunrises, When the sunsets;
When the wind blows or stillness met.
When the rain sounds, When the sun  beams joy;
Let our hearts and minds not forget.

He knows every heartache,  He sees each tear.
He knows each word, our lips declare.
He  knows our failure, and He knows our shame;
He knows when we've cried out His name.

When the clouds glide by in an open sky;
When a broken heart cries out why - oh why?
When a sounding stream fills the forest green;
 Or it is a loved ones time to die;

He gives comfort through a pleasant song;
Through prayer that lasts all day long;
Our hope in God's  Word, which will not change.
These are the things that keep us strong.

When confusion keeps us in dismay;
We cry out Oh God, please lead our way.
When wrong has seemed to overshadow us.
We must remember God forms the clay.

When the sunrises, When the sunsets;
When the wind blows or stillness met.
When the rain sounds, When the sun  beams joy;
Let our hearts and minds not forget.

He knows every heartache,  He sees each tear.
He knows each word, our lips declare.
He  knows our failure, and He knows our shame.
He knows when we've cried out His name.

He takes the clay within His loving hand.
Although we do not understand;
He molds together joy and the sorrow;

To conform us to His perfect plan.
