Politics and Peace

Hey there!  How’s everybody doing?  Hope all y’all are doing well!   So, are we all sick to death of the political barrage yet?  Do we have a clue for whom we will vote?  Are we looking to a new President to ‘fix’ America?  Honestly, the only hope I have for fixing America is a massive move of Americans in repentance and faith toward God and following His ways.  In the meantime, it seems like bad just gets worse, and my kids and grandkids are dealing on a daily basis with things I never had to think about at their age!  Makes me think about my last trip to Israel.  So, grab a glass of something cold and find a comfy spot to relax a minute.  I’ll tell you about Israel.

Observe to Obtain

Hey there! Hope all y’all are doing well! Grab a cuppa and get comfy for a while. Relax a minute. One thing I really like is going to church every day.  Every day, we have tan Old Testament reading, a Psalm and a Gospel.  If I pay attention, I can always hear God speaking to me through His Word.

Awhile back, the OT reading was from Deuteronomy chapter 4.  Now, I know Deuteronomy can be quite boring.  Continue reading
