    Lord, once again, you have shown us, your children, a powerful mercy, even though we don't deserve it. This storm called Irma that just went through was supposed to be the most powerful storm to have hit our land in the time we've been keeping records! But you, in your divine mercy, let it subside enough that the damage it did, in the huge area it affected, was in most cases minimal, at least under the circumstances. Thank you for the smaller number of lost lives than most of us feared might have been. Thank you for letting the storm diminish in my area to just another bad thunder storm. Thank you for all the folks from other states who came here to get our electrical power back up and running again. Thank you for ALL the tender mercies You've shown us in this time of challenge for many of us.

    Thy power is great, and thy mercy unmatched. Thy Grace is a wonder to our simple human minds. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your love and mercy and grace! Praised be thy name forever and ever. Amen!

    “We don’t develop courage by being happy every day. We develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity.” – Barbara de Angelis


    I never know what I am going to write until I start here.... The last few days have been filled with the incredible wonder of this planet. About 7 hours every day I have this wonderous view of plants , animals, and sky. I am just in awe....

    Then I read the thread about hunting with old guns. So many good old memories. A simpler time filled with simpler but better people...

    Then thinking rears its ugly head. This nation ...this world is corrupt... Man is fallen...corrupt.... led astray...
    Many are good....many only think of themselves and how to get more,more,more....




    It is such a mess and only God can fix it... And even He might have to wipe the slate clean and start again.


    Dear Lord... We cry out for Mercy but we need those who get Mercy to Repent...turn away from the path to nowhere. They need to stop being a problem and start being a solution. They need to stop riding in the wagon and help pull it for those unable to do so. Heal us, teach us, lead us... Let our lives be simple but rich in the important things... Faith, Love, Mercy, Goodness, Hope, Strength,Courage, and Victory... As in all things, Your will be done...Amen


    “Once a woman has forgiven her man, she must not reheat his sins for breakfast.” – Marlene Dietrich


    “When someone is hard on you it may have very little to do with you.” – Bryan McGill


    “It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.” – Friedrich Nietzsche

    Childhood means simplicity. Look at the world with the child's eye - it is very beautiful.
    Kailash Satyarthi

    I am sitting here laughing at myself. I was having watermelon for breakfast and it was just wonderful. I am amazed how simple I am.....

    Dear Lord... Please Bless us this day...Lead us down the Path You would have us go. Protect us in our travels and work.. Let us enjoy the simple pleasures and let our Faith be our backbone in this world.... Amen


    In character, in manner, in style, in all things, the supreme excellence is simplicity. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

    I am convinced that there can be luxury in simplicity. Jil Sander



    Simplicity is the final achievement. After one has played a vast quantity of notes and more notes, it is simplicity that emerges as the crowning reward of art. Frederic Chopin


    Things that I grew up with stay with me. You start a certain way, and then you spend your whole life trying to find a certain simplicity that you had. It's less about staying in childhood than keeping a certain spirit of seeing things in a different way. Tim Burton


    Nothing can conduce more to the order and stability of a government than the simplicity of the laws, the proper definition of rights, and their impartial and consistent administration. Sam Houston

    There are two great days in a person's life - the day we are born and the day we discover why.
    William Barclay


    Dear Lord.... Once again we beg for Truth, Honor, Wisdom, Strength. Mercy. Love, Faith, and Hope. Let us never fear to do Right and always fear to do Wrong. Lead us down Your Path.... Amen


    Our life is frittered away by detail... simplify, simplify. Henry David Thoreau



    It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see. Henry David Thoreau

    People tend to forget their duties but remember their rights.
    - Indira Gandhi

    2 Timothy 4:7 I have fought the good fight. I have completed the race. I have kept the faith.


    Matthew 7:14 How narrow is the gate and difficult the road that leads to life, and few find it.


    Another difficult post... I cannot shake this feeling that we, my brothers and sisters and I, need to be ready. Spiritually of course but in all other ways too. Before any storm, the Captain readies the ship..prepares the crew...Plots the course....observes the sky....

    Be ready, my Brethren.... Be Good Captains

    Dear Lord...Help us be the People You would want. Lead us down Your Path. Fill us with Love, Mercy, Faith, Hope, Strength, Courage, Wisdom, Understanding, and Victory. As good servants, let us raise ourselves to the task at hand. Let us do the Right, as You teach us the Right... Amen

    ( Some of the above is from a speech by George the 6th)





    I think the first duty of society is justice.
    - Alexander Hamilton


    No more duty can be urged upon those who are entering the great theater of life than simple loyalty to their best convictions - EDWIN HUBBEL CHAPIN



    THE ABILITY TO ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY IS THE MEASURE OF THE MAN - ROY L SMITH


    The price of greatness is responsibility - SIR WINSTON CHURCHILL


    The father who does not teach his son his duties is equally guilty with the son who neglects them - CONFUCIUS


    Colossians 3:23-24 Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.

    A magazine cover today shouts about 'The madness of Trump'. He must have them really scared for this to happen.....

    Dear Lord... Please Bless and Protect our President. Give him (and us) Strength, Courage, Wisdom, Understanding, Faith, Hope, Love , and Mercy.... The Bible tells us to pray for our Leaders. We Pray here Lord asking for Miracles for President Trump. Let him be a Good, Just, Wise, and Victorious Leader who will do the right thing every time. Protect him from those who hate... Bless us all... Amen

    Prayer is a strong wall and fortress of the church; it is a godly Christian weapon.

    Martin Luther


    Through many dangers, toils and snares, I have already come; ‘Tis grace has brought me safe thus far and grace will lead me home.'

    A horrible shooting has happened in Las Vegas... Someone shooting into a crowd from a high rise hotel... many,many dead and wounded...

    This guy is insane, fanatical, or filled with hate. Maybe all 3.... He used a full auto weapon... We will have to wait to know if he bought, modified, or smuggled the gun in..

    Dear Lord....Please help those who are wounded.... help the families of those killed... Let our Country be calm... Let us not fear..let us not whip ourselves into a frenzy...Let us seek after the Truth and with reason and cool judgement look at this horrible tragedy.

    Please give Our President and the American People Strength, Love, Mercy, Wisdom ,Faith, Hope, Courage, Understanding, and Victory. Protect us and our Great Land. Let our Freedoms and Way of life be stronger than ever... Amen


    Psalm 23:6 “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.”

    However long the night, the dawn will break.

    African Proverb - Hausa Tribe


    This maniac has done his damage. We can argue whether he would have killed more with a rental truck or gasoline bombs but the fact remains he had the desire to do it. It is this falling away from morality that is the real problem. Part of this society glorifies violence. The games, videos, and movies all push it. We can't be weak but we don't have to be evil.....

    Dear Lord...Be with those who have lost so much. Sooth the bitter tears...Heal our nation and let us return to Your Ways.... Let Our Hearts be Pure and filled with Love... Take the hate away and let a life of Your Mercy be our Path...Amen


    Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted, the indifference of those who should have known better, the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most, that has made it possible for evil to triumph.

    Haile Selassie


    “It’s really a wonder that I haven’t dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart.” ~ Anne Frank


    “Hope is a verb with its shirtsleeves rolled up.” ~ David Orr


    “Other men see only a hopeless end, but the Christian rejoices in an endless hope.” ~ Gilbert M. Beeken


    “You’ve got to believe that God is in control of your life. It may be a tough time but you’ve got to believe that God has a reason for it and he’s going to make everything good.” ~ Joel Osteen


    “Thanks be to God, there is hope to-day; this very hour you can choose Him and serve Him.” ~ D. L. Moody

    Dear Lord... Thank You for all we have and all we are.... We all know we can lose everything, including our life, in a heartbeat. So Thank You for the many good things in our lives and for the time to enjoy them....

    Please Bless and Protect our President and our Nation. Protect us from the evil that runs free in this world... Lead us to always do right... and never to do wrong....Amen

    Dear Lord... Today we ask for forgiveness in our lives... being human, we are all filled with mistakes and wrongs to others... Let us forgive and be forgiven in turn. Let us repent,turn away, from the path to nowhere and always have You for our Great Teacher. Thank You for all we are and all we have. Please protect our President and let him be a good, just, and great leader... Amen
