She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.
As an ordained minister, Independent Christian Clergy with Doctor of Divinity and Certified Christian Chaplain, my calling at this time is helping the poor and needy - especially to the elderly, shut-ins and nursing homes, veterans homes, as well as assisting ministers, congregations or individual groups in bible studies or other pastoral needs. My diversified background gives me a longing to serve all denominations. I have been involved in mission work and charities most of my adult life, including food banks and residential care ministries. I put no limits on God - whatever He wants me to do - He will tell me. My preference to be "ordained" in an independent christian ministry is a personal choice, and is not a reflection on any denomination. The purpose in choosing this route is to have a broader opportunity to serve God.
GOD BLESS YOU - YOU ARE A CHILD OF GOD AND HE LOVES YOU.

There are 538 instances of "work" in the NIV Bible. Work is very important to God. Work, work, work - sometimes it seems like that's all we do - work for a job, that is. It's true what they say, "a woman's work is never done". And, I wouldn't have it any other way. WHY? Because work is more than a job - work is a blessing from God. God made us to work. We work at growing - growing in our bodies from a child to an adult - growing in our spirits from a child to an adult. We work at learning - learning how to become responsible adult human beings - learning skills on how to do a specific job or hobby - learning how to be responsible, moral, and learning all about this wonderful world that God gave us to live in. Life is a journey of working - there are fun things to work at also - sometimes I work at learning new styles of crocheting and knitting, or a new style of painting or sketching. We should always continue to work on learning new things and working on growing in our spiritual life with God - without that, we would be useless, mindless robots with no direction, no life, no soul and that would be no fun. Work isn't just a word for a job - it is a word for living. PRAISE GOD FOR WORK - the more we work at learning and growing, the more we appreciate the blessings that God gave us - and we learn and grow closer to HIM. God works. Even Adam and Even were created to work in the Garden of Eden. He expects us to also. Laziness leads to evil - just look at the media at some rich people who don't have any direction, no goals, and do not work at anything - and they get into all kinds of trouble - No one is too good to work - is anyone better than God, who works and created us to work? NOT! Get off your duff and find something to do that you enjoy, and WORK at it! AMEN!
New International Version GENESIS 2:2-3
(2) By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested [a] from all his work.
(3) And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.
(15) The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.
(23) So the LORD God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken.
(12) I will meditate on all your works and consider all your mighty deeds.
1 CORINTHIANS 12:6
(6) There are different kinds of working, but the same God works all of them in all men.
