  •    Did you ever think about what could be the most important thing you could think about? Sounds like a riddle, but it isn’t. It is you and I asking the question, “how will it be for me when I face judgment?”

    It is something we will all face someday.

  •    “Then the LORD stretched out His hand and touched my mouth, and the LORD said to me, ‘Behold, I have put My words in your mouth.  See, I have appointed you this day over the nations and over the kingdoms, to pluck up and to break down, to destroy and to overthrow, to build and to plant’”  (Jeremiah 1:9-10).

  •   “ It is the Spirit that gives life, the flesh is of no avail; . . . ” (See John 6:63a, RSV).

  •    Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1). While reading the whole chapter of Hebrews eleven, I can imagine God walking down the middle of a big hall similar to what we have here on earth as the “Hall of Fame”. I picture God painting out faithful people who please and obeyed him.

  •           

    I have been reading the book of Joel, it only has three chapters, but they are so powerful. We read many stories or accounts of God’s people straying from his love, his teachings and pursuing their own ways.

    Without the protection of the Heavenly Father and relying on their own abilities there were often overwhelmed and defeated. Just as today God does not force his will on is we choose the latter.

    “Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ” Galatians 6:2.

    The year 1970 was an emotional, touchy-feely time. The nation had experienced a decade of turmoil with political assassinations, riots on college campuses, and an unpopular still-raging war. 

    Suddenly the Jesus Revolution had swept the west coast and was moving east. 

  •  The last of the purple martins departed Highcliff on Aug. 9. The colony site by the garden is now utterly silent. I miss the cheerful martins and all the life that they bring to the farm. 

    But, they’ve got their schedule, dictated by the instinct instilled in them by Mother Nature to follow, while we humans have our timetable to follow.

     I won’t be crossing the Gulf of Mexico on a wing and a prayer like the martins. I won’t be flying over the rainforests of Brazil, down below the equator, like the martins.
