Nothing new under the sun...when Richard was a little boy stationed with his parents (Mobile Pipeline) in Libya as Gadhafi overthrew King Idris. Richard was evacuated out on a helicopter to London...but only after watching a man being burned upside down in his overturned Fiat....this is NOT a peaceful situation....same song second verse....when we think this is a new battle we need only look at scripture...and he had to leave his Roy Rogers pistols and belt action toys behind!!!
It isn't about oil, it isn't about oppression, it IS about ultimately...Faith...Bible...Our LORD Jesus....and truths written in prophecy.
9 What has been will be again,
what has been done will be done again;
there is nothing new under the sun.

Don't be a Fonzy!!!! Just say it...whether to God or someone in your life....let's keep short accounts. Don't let the words get stuck in your throat. Let's practice together now....."I WAS WRONG!"
Three of the most freeing words on the planet.
Matthew 5:21-26 (New International Version, ©2010)
Murder21 “You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘You shall not murder,a]" [a] and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.’ 22 But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sisterb]" [c] will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister, ‘Raca,’d]" [d] is answerable to the court. And anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell.
23 “Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, 24 leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift.
25 “Settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court. Do it while you are still together on the way, or your adversary may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison. 26 Truly I tell you, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny.

Stopped at night at a CVS to get medicine....my mom said...look who's driving that car....I guess anyone can get a license around here!
This is DUKE his owner Mary ended up being a kindred spirit and fellow believer in Christ. What a fun trip the the pharmacy.
Sometimes....things are NOT what they seem...when something in your circumstance does not make sense......check with the bible....wait to allow the real situation to come to light.
This is why I speak to them in parables: “Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand.
And a side note to those who have inquired about my recent trip to the hospital.....I am doing well...just had a little argument with Crohn's disease.......I won the discussion!
Resting and getting stronger...Praise be to God our healer and comforter.

Pastor Jeff Schreve shared the Teachable Moments this week on the magazine. It is encouraging. Hope you like it. Cool thing about Jeff you can watch him on TBN if you can't get to church where you are. Especially with the weather the country has been experiencing.
I especially appreciated this article as I am experiencing some curve balls with health and moving in our family.
I hope you enjoy the new edition of the magazine.
We invite you to share it with your friends by email, twitter, facebook, your blogs or just tell them about the community of believers studying to apply scripture to our daily lives.
Click here to read the article, then look around the magazine.

Stop by the magazine and take our Packers/Steelers poll. Then take a look around and tell a friend. This is a coveted prize! We, as Christ followers are to keep our eye on a prize of a different kind.
I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
