Month: June 2009 slip-slidin’ away…

  So, you’re here again today for a visit at the kitchen table.  I’m having a cup of tea… because of some recent health problems, I’m making some radical changes.  Yes… sniffle, sniffle, one of them includes drastically reducing coffee consumption — caffeine, really, and anything that contributes to high blood-pressure and high cholesterol.  I have a little elevation of one and a lot of the latter.    So, I’m trying not to get too caught up in the going’s on.  But it’s really difficult to ignore blatant apostacy.  I mean, as I have written a number of times in the past, it’s expected that the world will decline, degrade and decay.  And it’s really not unexpected that the most effective way or place for the devil to move is to have a slow and steady, multi-pronged attack against and within the church — either subtly, boldly, directly or indirectly. continue reading

Month: June 2009 Dear Sarah…

[ongoing Letters to my friend…]   Dear Sarah, I’m just checking in to say hello and to encourage you to… Press on. :o) The weather’s changed just a bit and the day doesn’t seem as bright out — and so I got to thinking about you and am just praying that you’re doing well — that you’re not discouraged with the load you are carrying in this season.   So, as I send this, I am praying that you will just be encouraged and just do *one* thing today that you’ve been meaning to get to.  Just *one* thing that’s been pressing or blocking some other things from getting done.  I’m doing this today — I have some ironing that *needs!* to be done and so I am just going to do it right now after writing to you.  I think we all have things that are blocking other things continue reading

Month: June 2009 more slip slidin’ away…

I’m going to be gardening in the sunshine tomorrow… so a few things I’ll probably be thinking about as I dig around in the dirt.  So, here’s some.  (yeah, it was intended) “For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.” 1 John 2.16   BHObama declares June …pride month. ‘guess I’ll be heading into the my library to see this year’s display.  Last year’s show at our library was quite bold.   WND’s David Kupelian writes an excellent and timely article. [note when it was written]; you may remember I’ve written in support of his very insightful work many times and have suggested reading his book The Marketing of Evil.     This, from WorldNet Daily today, June 2, 2009:  “Author’s note: Although I wrote the following continue reading

Month: June 2009 Summer fun: jumping bales

 In case it seems I’ve lost the lighthearted side… I haven’t.  Here’s my lighthearted side. Jump! Jump! Jump! The local farmers do three cuttings a year… and through the years, the youngest of our children have the greatest time jumping from bale to bale all over the land!  I don’t usually get pictures of this fun event, but my neighbor graciously gave me these!  It’s always a sad day when the tractor loads the bales of hay onto the truck and drives them away.

Month: June 2009 Two Killers – Two Tragedies.

A career is ended.  During that infamous career, tens of thousands of innocent people were killed. A tragedy to be sure.  I think of this all day today; what a shame — what a tragic end.  A man responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of innocent children.  I consider these things all day.  I decided to refrain from reading editorials about the man… the man who was shot while attending & ushering at ‘church’ yesterday.  I wonder why he went to church.  I wonder how he could do what he did tens of thousands of times and not only ‘attend church’ but hold the office of usher in that congregation.  I wonder, how could his conscience be so seared that he was past feeling or past personal responsibility?  How could he be so depraved he didn’t recognize his work was beyond reprehensible?  For a little bit, I get continue reading
