I hope it was a good one! James Avery is great! We moved into
a new store in November and it’s beautiful...and has helped sales.

Not much rain. We’ve only had a little over 7 inches since September of 2010! Bad. We have very strict water restrictions and trees and yards are dying all over town. :(

God bless you and give you a blessed Sunday!

WOW.

Congrats on the new store.

Prayers for rain, then.

Sigh.

The characters dinking with the weather . . . words fail me.

Nevertheless, God is still God and always will be God.

And prayer does have an impact.

The Devil In Court

February 26, 2012

The Devil and Daniel Webster” is a short story by Stephen Vincent Benet. In it, Jabez Stone, a New England farmer, has such “bad luck” that he sells his soul to the devil to become prosperous. Eventually, the devil comes to collect Jabez’s debt. But the eminent lawyer Daniel Webster is called in to defend him. Through a skillful series of arguments, Webster wins the case against the devil, and Jabez is saved from perdition.

Of course, this tale is only fiction. But the Bible records a vision in which Satan accuses a believer before the Divine Judge. Joshua, a high priest, stands before God. As a picture of his personal sin and guilt, the priest is dressed in filthy clothing. Nearby, Satan accuses Joshua. But the Angel of the Lord rebukes him and says to Joshua: “See, I have removed your iniquity from you, and I will clothe you with rich robes” (Zech. 3:4).

Only God can make a sinner acceptable to Him. And the New Testament tells us how: “If anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous” (1 John 2:1).

Do you feel unworthy to enter the presence of God? Remember, as Christians, our Savior’s blood has cleansed us, and Christ Himself represents us.

The power of God can turn a heart From evil and the power of sin; The love of God can change a life And make it new and cleansed within. —Fasick
Justification means our guilt gone, Christ’s righteousness given.

Read: Zechariah 3:1-5

I have removed your iniquity from you. —Zechariah 3:4
Bible in a Year:
Deuteronomy 32-34

"I am having trouble with my computer..The screen just goes black..I got it back on after many tries.."

If you've replaced a TV or two lately, one of them may have a connection for the output of your computer.

It's one of the things I look for in a new TV; not only to be able to display digital channels directly, but also to be able to be used as a computer monitor as well.

I'm using one of the new TVs I purchased recently for this purpose right now. I haven't even connected it to cable yet.

A warning though, you may need to adjust the settings on your computer before you can use the TV. I did have to do that. The computer had been set for a 70 Hertz refresh rate, and the TV did not like that. After setting the computer to 60 Hertz, everything worked fine. A nice bright, and wide, picture.

Good Luck!

One of the most tragic things I know about human nature
is that all of us tend to put off living.

We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon
instead of enjoying the roses blooming......
outside our windows today.

Many laptops can output to a regular computer monitor, or to a TV with the right connections.

Look for a fifteen-pin connection, usually labeled VGA.

You may need a cable. If you can’t find one locally, they can be ordered over the Internet (for a more reasonable cost).

Consider it a Plan “B”. It’s also a good idea to have a plug-in keyboard for your laptop as well. And I couldn’t abide not having a regular mouse for it.

Thank you, Meg! We ALL have tests - but, some seem to have ‘easier’ tests than others............

We will grow, only if we embrace the goodness in the tests we are presented with.

(And, day-ummm, those ‘growing pains’ ain’t easy sometimes, but, we stand a bit taller after each ‘growth spurt’.)

You KNOW I love hyacinths! I can almost smell them from CA!

((((HUGS))))) to you and all the prayer warriors here!

the new sling is making life a bit more comfortable.
Praying for you is easy to do..We love you.

Hello yorkie. Great to “see” you again.

Maybe we should all get together and flood your room with hyacinths.

Washing machine broke yesterday so we bought a new one. You’d think an item like that would last longer than 18 years. They just don’t make ‘em like they used to. ;^)

Prayers continue for you and your recovery.

I feel so ‘out’ of it.......my washer is a top loader - guess everyone has those new-fangled front loaders these days. It’s getting so I can’t keep up with technology.

My kids got me an I-Phone when I was in the hospital. It was free. (My old cell phone had enough credits to cover the cost - LOL!) My only regret, is that the ‘old’ cell phone doesn’t work any more.

Would you please have your lunch and
and your rest. I must rest at this very
moment as I've pushed too long today! I had
a delicious oyster stew for lunch. I had the
fried oysters last night (after groceries) and
I got in bad shape with my back. After the bone
scan tomorrow and the results show what the
x-rays showed, I have to have that procedure
done as soon as possible 'cause I can't handle this!!
