S Will God judge America?

Will God condemn people to hell?

God does not wish to bring judgment upon America, but He will. God does not wish to condemn anyone to hell, but he will. Why do I say this? Because God Himself says it. I’ve been reading in Isaiah of late and comparing the burden of the LORD against the nations which were neighbors to Old Testament Israel and Judah and then comparing that to the fulfillment of those prophecies in history. In some cases world powers were overthrown and wiped out in a single night. Continue Reading »

S Spring is in full bloom

Area gardeners look forward to April, for then the last frost is likely to be over and we can look forward to consistently warm temperatures. Vegetables and flowers can be planted directly in the ground without worry about damage from the cold. Plants started in greenhouses and homes can be transferred outside and finally gardening can begin in earnest. Those with an urge to work in the soil can get their hands dirty at last.

S Built on the rock or sand?

"But why do you call Me 'Lord, Lord,' and not do the things which I say? Whoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings and does them, I will show you whom he is like: He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock. But he who heard and did nothing is like a man who built a house on the earth without a foundation, against which the stream beat vehemently; and immediately it fell. And the ruin of that house was great." Luke 6:46-49 Continue Reading »

S Shubat Farms makes for an interesting visit

This past Saturday, Linda and I loaded up several of the grandchildren and took them to visit Shubat Farms. The farm is located at 16000 Peterson Road in Gentry, which, as the crow flies, is not far from our place. We drove to Springtown and followed the GPS from there. Continue Reading »

S The best part of our lives is the present

I was sleeping pretty sound and something making a little, almost too small to hear, noise woke me up. I strained to hear and finally sat up on the side of the bed. Then I recognized the sound! Grass growing is hard to hear, but if you are conditioned just right, you can do it! I relaxed and snuggled back into my pillow. Continue Reading »

S You can still smile at all you meet

The wind has been kicking up dust and removing tin from barn roofs. Thirty and 40 mile per hour gusts are not the common gentle breezes we are accustomed to in this part of the country. I am never surprised when that wind goblin prances by in March, but April was not ever his time to roam. Trying to jerk a kink in our tails with his hi-jinks, I suppose. Continue Reading »

S Matters of the Heart: Part 2

On July 19, 2011, while working as a CNA on the night shift at the Maples in Har-ber Meadows, I had my second heart attack. I have to say it was different from my first heart attack. With the first one, I had chest pain for several days prior to going into V-fib at the emergency room. With this second attack, I had no prior warnings other than I was living an unhealthy lifestyle that included a horrible diet as well as a great deal of stress and depression. Continue Reading »

S The human race is in denial

The human race is in denial! Mankind refuses to accept the truth even though it is evident each and every day. What truth do people deny -- perhaps, more than any other? The truth recorded in Genesis 3, the curse brought upon all of creation because of sin! Continue Reading »

S Do you hear His voice?

"But you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep, as I said to you. My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father's hand. I and My Father are one." John 10:26-30 (cf. John 10:1-39) Continue Reading »
