Zephaniah 3:17 reminds us that God is musical and He rejoices and sings over you. - -
The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

Teddy Bear Lost
Teddy Bears are Fun, while some children cling to a
favorite blanket, or other fun toy.
In my opinion every child
needs a fun doll or stuffed animal to cuddle and love.
A teddy bear is perfect to fulfill this need
for both boys and girls.
Somehow in the different moves
from one apartment to another, through no fault of his own, our Uncle Doug had
lost his Teddy Bear.
I am not sure if he wanted
another one or not, but a few years later I found an identical bear that
matched his first one.It became a
Christmas gift to him.
He seemed to appreciate the
gift and he placed it on his bed.
There was another teddy bear
that did not fare so well.A child of a
dear friend received a similar bear, one Christmas from us.
While her mother was having a
new baby, she came to stay with us for a few days.
She offered the subject, and
said she wished she had a Teddy Bear.I
suggested that she already had one and why did she need another one?
“Oh no,” she replied, “My dad
cut off his head because I touched something that belonged to him, so I no
longer have a Teddy bear.”
I felt so sorry for this
child and almost “hated” her dad for such cruel and selfish behavior.
However I could not bring
myself to replace a new one for her, lest it meet the same fate.
When her parents divorced, I
was not even sad, because I knew in my heart that God had something better for
No, I do not approve of
divorce, but there are times when it is Biblically correct and this was one of
In life as we looking back, many of us including
this dad, could wish things had been done differently.
The best thing one can do in
a present circumstance is to “Let go what might have been” and move on forward
If you are holding on to an
old Teddy Bear, keep it safe and put in a place of honor.
