"His tears they run with blood, a splitting brow forced by the thorns, his face is writhing with the pain, yet it's comforting to me"

from: the album SEA of FACES by Kutless the song is Passion

There is so much we can derive from this little phrase. I say little, when used in this context it takes on an enormous meaning. The actuality is that it is the single most important act of love, of kindness, and of compassion this author can think of.
Am I a witness that this actually happened? Yes, and no. In the person, as a flesh and bones seen with my own two eyes, no. I will not tell that lie. No matter how old some of you think I am, I am not 2000 years old.

But am I a witness spiritually? You bet I am. I know without a doubt that the events portrayed in our bible have actually happened.
You see, it not that hard to believe if you think about it. The TRUTH is not a friend with exaggeration, tales of fancy, nor is it a friend with flirting of the facts. It is simply the TRUTH.

God has shown time and time again that he has no gray area, whether it’s dealing with truth, or obeying any of his commandments. Just on that simple fact, I know without a doubt that Jesus of Nazareth was the Christ, and he shed his blood for each of us.

Next time we will talk a little about fishing.
GOD Bless each of you.

Friday Ramblings

Yesterday we learned that Selena Dodd has been fitted for a wheel chair, and her physical therapy is coming along well. Miss Dodd has been through an awful lot lately, so let's keep her and her family in our prayers.
Many people take the things in life for granted, and I am no exception to the rule. Fully realizing that nothing I have is mine, and nothing that has been given to me I got on my own. I still end up saying "I" worked for it, or I earned it, or even I made that.
Let's all try to keep in mind that if God had not intended to allow us these gifts, we would never see them as ours.
God is responsible for allowing me to be healthy enough to work, intelligent enough to make my own decisions, and has given me my blessings in life.
I was blessed with a wonderfully large family. My Dad has two sisters that are still living, and one that has passed. My Mom has five sisters that are still alive, and two that have passed. Spending most of youth going to family gatherings on my Mom's side I was truly blessed in having many cousins. Now when we all get together it is no problem for there to be 50 of us. That is truly a blessing.
I'm sure you are tired of my ramblings on, so I will leave you with this...

GOD Bless each of you.

Happy July 4th

It's Sunday morning July 4th as I write this.
Our country is at a treacherous crossroads as this  Independence Day is here. Together as Christians we need to have continual prayer for the leaders of our country and of the world. Politics aside we are facing an unparalleled assault on our environment, and our resources.
The only way any of this gets resolved is with GOD's full participation in our lives. We have to be willing to let him in, and he will lovingly give us the answers to our prayers.
So on this our country's Independence Day, let's not forget our Troops that are in harm's way, those that have made sacrifices for our freedoms, and pray that going forward our country can once again be the shining light to the world.

GOD Bless.
