It Bothers Me…

It really bothers me when someone is shown a truth in the Holy writ and still refuses to adhere to it.  In fact, it REALLY bothers me when asked, “do you believe the Bible” and they say, “well, not if it’s telling me I can’t continue to live this way”.  argh  How can people be so proud and think they will get by with that attitude?  I am amazed at how some folks don’t think the Bible applies to their life. My!  Is that ignorance or stupidity?  I can’t figure that one out.  I’m thankful that God is merciful.  Perhaps they will have another opportunity to make things right with the Creator.  How do people even think they can wake up in the morning with breath in their lungs without God giving it to them?  Do they think they are doing that of their own volition?  I know this, “I can’t even walk without Him holding my hand”.  Sorry if that sounds too dependent on God, but that is how I feel.  He is my everything!  He is my all!  He is my everything, both great and small!  I want to keep my “nose in the book” and make sure I am right with it.  Acts 17: 30-31 talks about how God once winked at ignorance (or allowed things to go by unnoticed) but now, He commands all to come to repentance.  For, He has appointed a day of judgement, and He will judge us from His word.  It bothers me when people don’t see this. Can you tell?  🙂  Those of you who believe the Word, keep on keepin’ on.  Don’t give up! Don’t get weary in well-doing!  Keep living by what is written in the pages of God’s beautiful word.  If you don’t faint, you will reap a great reward one of these days! Blessings!

New Post?

Nathaniel called me a couple of days ago and said that he is disowning me as a fellow blogger if I didn’t post something new. 🙂  So here is my new post so that I am not disowned…

I’m sick of politics.  I will be glad when it’s all over.

Other than that… God is great!  Life is good and busy!  Jesus is Coming soon and I just can’t wait!  Looking forward to seeing you in the clouds of glory!

Does that qualify as a new post ‘Than?  🙂

Nation Remembers 9/11

wtc_anniv_0911 A tattered flag from Sept. 11, 2001 is brought to a stage near the footprint of the World Trade Center.

The nation paused Thursday to mark the seventh anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks with a heartfelt ceremony at ground zero and other solemn remembrances around the country.

Relatives of victims killed at the World Trade Center gathered at ground zero in lower Manhattan for readings from dignitaries and a recitation of the names of the dead. Later Thursday, presidential candidates Barack Obama and John McCain were due at ground zero to pay silent respects. “Today marks the seventh anniversary of the day our world was broken,” Mayor Michael Bloomberg said. “It lives forever in our hearts and our history, a tragedy that unites us in a common memory and a common story … the day that began like any other and ended as none ever has.”

The ceremony at ground zero included moments of silence at 8:46 a.m. and 9:03 a.m. — the times that two hijacked jets slammed into the twin towers. Two more moments of silence were to be held at the times the towers fell. Services were also being held in Pennsylvania and at the Pentagon, where a new memorial will be dedicated.

Relatives of victims began arriving at dawn at ground zero, now a huge construction site. American flags were draped over silent cranes.

Maureen Hunt, wearing a T-shirt with a picture of her sister, Kathleen, a 9/11 victim, said that it was comforting to be at the ceremony with so many who have lost loved ones. “This is a place for us to meet,” said Hunt, who has come each year to pay her respects. “It is not getting easier to attend these ceremonies.”

Family members and students representing more than 90 countries that lost victims on Sept. 11 read the names of 2,751 people killed in New York, one more than last year. The city restored Sneha Philip, a woman who mysteriously vanished on Sept. 10, 2001, to its official death toll this year after a court ruled that she was likely killed at the trade center.

Among the readers was Laraine Angeline, who lost brother-in-law, Steve Pollicino. “Steve, your smiles live on with us,” she said. “Our separation is temporary. Our love for you is forever.”

McCain and Obama planned to visit the site after the ceremony concluded Thursday afternoon. The candidates agreed weeks ago to pull their campaign ads for the day and were appearing together Thursday night at a forum on volunteerism and service.

Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani was to speak at the ceremony, as he has every year in New York, along with officials including Bloomberg and Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff.

The Garbage Truck


The Garbage Truck

One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport.
We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us. My taxi driver slammed on his brakes, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches! The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us. My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, he was really friendly.

So I asked, ‘Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!’

This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call, ‘The Law of the Garbage Truck.’

He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment. As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they’ll dump it on you. Don’t take it personally. Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Don’t take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets.

The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day. Life’s too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so….. ‘Love the people who treat you right. Pray for the ones who don’t.’

Camp Meeting

This is the last day of Camp Meeting 2008 here in the Western District.  We have had a phenomenol time.  The teaching and preaching of the Western District pastors and Bro. Davis and Bro. Jones has been over the top.  WOW!  God has met with us in such a special way.  We have enjoyed good fellowship with our friends and we have also enjoyed making new friends. 

This is just a little update.  I will post more later about the camp and hopefully have some pictures to go with it.

Blessings! 🙂
