This is my spot. I surf the web, write blog posts, read, watch tv and visit from my living room (lounge for my British friends) recliner. It is my favorite place to be.
When I am reading, I travel the world, solve crimes, get further education and share my daughter’s childhood favorite books with my grandbaby.
When I am sick, I will curl up and lounge around whilst drinking tea and preparing for a nap.
It has stains and has lost some of its cushiness (I do hope to do a quick and easy reupholstering of it).
Yes, X does, indeed, mark MY spot. Do you have a special spot?
Wait! It can’t be over! I still have four letters. I will NOT be bound by a calendar! I WILL finish the challenge. Hang in there with me, will you??
Pastor Saheed Abedini has been in an Iranian prison for the better part of a year. His crime? Being a Christian. Pastor Abedini is a naturalized citizen of the United States who returned to Iran to help with an orphanage. The authorities say he was trying to convert Muslims to Christianity.
Was he doing this? I don’t know. As a Christian, he is obliged to preach Christ. He has valiantly maintained his Christian faith in the face of persecution.
Is he the only American citizen in this particularly harsh prison? I do not know. However, he is an American and the United States has done precious little to try to gain his freedom. Secretary Kerry has said something but I haven’t seen any teeth.
People from all parts of the globe have protested the inhumane treatment Pastor Abedini has received. From the beatings, he has internal bleeding. He has been denied medical care and pain medications because he will not renounce his Christianity.
If you would like to have your voice heard in defense of Saheed Abedini, please contact the aclj.org.
Being a Christian, I believe that I will be in heaven for forever. Also there will be those I love who love the Lord Jesus Christ. It used to be that when someone would leave for the mission field or even to another state I would be very sad. Now, although not happy to see them leave, I anticipate spending eternity together!
Just over twenty years ago the Billy Graham Crusade came to my area. I was blessed to be able to sing in the chorus. As I walked the concourse of the stadium, I saw a number of people I once knew from churches I had attended. Seeing them was a taste of of the wonderful reunions we will experience in heaven!
No more farewells for me. I can now say, “Until we meet again.”
My post yesterday was reflective of what I have been posting on facebook for the last week or so. Usually, I don’t post hot button items, but murdering children is where I draw the line.
One post I saw had me thinking long and hard before reposting. It had a picture of the back of a baby’s head and neck with the neck slit opened where its spinal cord was snipped. Each time I see it I inwardly cringe and it is hard for me to not become depressed.
One of my liberal friends was very vocal in her anger with me for posting this. She has a young son who plays games on her account and doesn’t want to chance his seeing something like this.
Am I to censor my “shares” because of this? I won’t. There are so many offensive posts that I have to wade through each and every day and I don’t say a word. If this offends you hide the posts and download games somewhere other than facebook for your son. Or, delete me as a friend. I won’t be offended.
I had to quit being silent. I have to tell the truth.
Warning: This post is not about sweetness and light. Read only if you have a strong stomach.
There is a trial going on in the USA of a person who has his medical degree. I am loathe to call him “doctor.” This monster, Kermit Gosnell, has been systematically killing babies in the third trimester of their mothers’ pregnancies. If they were born alive, he snipped their spinal cords or left them to die in shoe boxes or some other less than human fashion.
Whatever happened to the sanctity of human life? Has life become so cheap that this has been happening for years, known by such organizations as Planned Parenthood, and nothing has been done before now?
Speaking before the House of Representatives today, Marlin Stutzman (R-IN) said, “Have forty years of abortion-on-demand seared our national conscience and given us false refuge behind euphemisms like ‘choice’”
Liberal news outlets have barely covered this trial.
Ruth Bell Graham said, “”If God doesn’t soon bring judgment upon America, He’ll have to go back and apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah!”
Mrs. Graham is right. If this nation doesn’t get on its collective knees and repent and ask for God’s forgiveness we will surely go down in flames.
When Himself and I were approaching our silver anniversary, I knew I wanted a silver wedding band. I had no idea what I wanted it to look like except that I didn’t want a traditional band.
We went to different stores and he found something he liked but I didn’t. I’m the type of person who will look until I find “it” even when I don’t know what “it” is.
On the internet, I visited many sites looking for my dream ring. Finally, on Christian Book Distributors web site I found it!
It is the Hebrew word “Yeshua” which means Jesus. I love it!
