S Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness

"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled." Matthew 5:6 — Those who honestly look upon themselves in the mirror of God's law will see that they are unrighteous and unholy by God's standard.

But, for the sake of the shed blood of Messiah Jesus, we sinners are made acceptable in God's eyes -- all our sins are washed away in Jesus' blood and God counts us righteous through faith in Him! Cf. Ephesians 1:6-7; Colossians 1:19-23; Romans 3:21-28; 4:5. Continue Reading »

The baler has had to have a new belt. I don't know how many rake teeth we have been to town to get, and we don't buy one at a time. The raking tractor had a flat on one of the rear tires -- filled with water, of course. Did I ever tell you I hate hay season? Well, I do! Continue Reading »
