"We will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail!" President Bush
The big news of the day is the death and burial at sea of Osama bin Laden. Thank you, President Bush and the US military (including my son and future son-in-law) who made this day happen. Other news is the nuptials of William and Catherine in Great Britain. May God bless their union and draw them close to Him in Jesus Christ. Alabama (my state) and other southeast states continue the task of digging out and rebuilding. A massive effort is underway with able bodies and supplies needed.
It’s only about 4 minutes of effluvia and then Bibi starts in.
Daniels will not run! Excellent! If we could get rid of a few more RINOs and lightweights who are thinking of running, etc., we might have a chance.
Good morning! Good news to see upon waking up.
Life goes on here as well as with you....
My dad is 88 and longs to be released & be with my mom in Heaven....
...but he lingers ....and mostly sleeps a deep sleep.
I'm thankful for this, as when he's awake he thinks he sees mom and carries her picture around...
Our family is well enough....just surrendering to the aging process with body parts needing overhauls :)
Our granddaughter is the light and love....we thank God for her creation.
She already loves Him and read her devotional to me last night.
I still stand in amazement that this previoulsy tiny 2-1/2 lb baby grew up to be such a bright, sweet and loving little girl....thanks be to God.
...our son is now also happily married.....he waited for the right one...(met her in church)....God is good.
We press on....
Good Morning Everyone.
Just back from our trip and caught up from the 16th on We had a fruitful meeting and things will be done. Thank goodness. The weather was beautiful going and returning. We did run into a terrific rain and hail storm just outside of McKinney, TX and that slowed us down a bit, but we ran out of it and into better weather.
I just caught up on Bibi’s visit to our country. He is so right when he mentions our countries are very close and depend on oneanother. I completely agree with his statement of keeping their boundries as they stand now. I remember, how the Israelies were pounded prior to 1967. They showed the arab world they were made of tough stock and won that land for keeps. We, actually are the only country that will stand with Israel. We must NEVER forget without the Jews, our country would not exist. Were it not for Jesus, a Jew, Christianity would not exist. Were it not for Christianity, America would not have been founded on the Jewish/Christian principles.
Guenie, hopefully you Dad will receive his wish in time. Hard to believe JellyBean is 6, she is a love.
Jem, the next time you get a fireant bit, put a drop of clorax/purex on it. It will stop the itch and the blister. In fact clorax/purex works even with poison ivey and other insect bites.
Toby it’s good to see you back. You won’t believe how many bowls of grits Jem posted, for you.
Gotta get moving, Roomey just stirred from his slumbering, so it’s time to get the coffee going.
God is Great, and will return in His time, it will be a wonderful experience to fly Home.
On the 'rapture' - I can't believe that man trying to set a date for such a thing - particularly in light of biblical cautions.
Here's a couple:
'...that day (that Christ is at hand) shall not come except... that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition...sitting in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.' - 2Thes, 2.
and another: 'When you see the Abomination of Desolation... stand in the Holy Place... for then shall be great tribulation.... but of that day and hour knoweth no man, but my Father only.' - Mat, 24.
There is the scripture about being 'caught up' - from whence came the idea of a 'rapture' - 1Thes 4, 16-17.
Though I'd like to think there might be a reprieve for end-time Christians, I don't find an early (pre or mid tribulation) 'rapture' in scripture, though I've read about the topic for many years.
Lastly and perhaps most significantly, the Day of The Lord comes, '...when they shall say, Peace and safety' - and sometime after Satan's minion has made his claim to be God.
Now, think about Obama in that very role... he's arrogant enough to fit the bill, imho.
Yes. I agree with everything you wrote.
Good morning, Everybody! It is another gorgeous morning here in east central Alabama. We're expecting it to be a bit warm, a good day to lounge in the pool.
Prayers for those in the mid-west affected by the tornados.
Hawaii was US territory..Hawaiians were still citizens of this country,
It’s a nice thought.
Good morning everybody. Watching the terrible destruction and loss of live in Joplin on TWC, prayers for all affected.
We had a quiet night here, slept well and now have to get caught up on work-work. I expect more jammers will show up as the week progresses.
Have a great day folks.
It is good to have an “unstructured catch-up-on-work” day especially when it follows a good night’s sleep. I have Big sigh.
We’re shopping at a bridal salon this AM. The youngest is driving.
That sounds like fun. Is your back still giving you bad problems?
I KNEW I should have waited, had a very light breakfast this morning but at least I felf like eating, been down with the ‘low sick’ feeling these past couple of days. Gor me an infected eye too, I am like a old car, a creak here, a creak there.
News on Allie (grand daughter). Out of school for the summer but is busy as a bee with school matters. May I brag a little? She is an honor student, sings often at assemblies, takes care of pawpaw, cleaning my shack in the back every day. Got to admit, she is one good looking yong lasy too, phone rings off the hook for ‘hopefulls’ calling. A very good girl too, always has time for others.
News on the boys, wild as a buck 24-7 and pawpaws shack is their most favorite place to hang out. Of course we have a ‘open fridge’ ploicy here and I keep it well stocked for them (am me, my ‘cheating’ stash is in there too).
I am so glad to be back witk true friends, you all bring joy to this old heart.
This was a bad storm, so may people killed. We are in a double threat area here, hurricanes and tornados, so far so good but can change on a dime.
Reckon you saw that the death toll has reached 90 in Joplin, MO
I saw that and my heart breaks for them. It takes only an instant for the world to change permanently and it takes a long, long time to adjust to such tragedy.
Yes, my back is still giving me troubles, in varying degrees. I’ve gotten the doctor’s report from the MRI, but I have seen the radiologist report. the upshot, if I understood it correctly, is that in addition to the L5-S1 disk having its problems (which have been addressed and corrected), the L5-L4 disk has now ruptured. If that is the case, I’m going to look for the newer ways to treat it, even to the point of traveling through the Philippines. They seem to be the “go to” place for the latest techniques in spinal treatments.
Migraine is back. I’m drugged and heading for sleep, I hope.
Ain’t it a shame? If only...but maybe we can get him on a false SSnumber or barry soetoro this next time around.
Toby, you just don’t know how good it is to see you back. You were truly missed. As for the creaks and oh mys, it will pass. Hope you’re feeling better, now.
