Needing Hope?

We should ask God to increase our hope when it is small, awaken it when it is dormant, confirm it when it is wavering, strengthen it when it is weak, and raise it up when it is overthrown. ~ John Calvin

God Bless America

flagWith the Fourth of July coming up, the teacher decided to tell her pre-school class about patriotism. “We live in a great country,” she said. “One of the things we should be happy is that, in this country, we are all free.”

One little boy came walking up to her from the back of the room. He stood with his hands on his hips and said, . . .  “I’m not free. I’m four.” 

Happy Independence Day

Proud to be an American.

If you surveyed a hundred typical middle-aged Americans, I bet you’d find that only two of them could tell you their blood types, but every last one of them would know the theme song from ‘The Beverly Hillbillies’. ~  Dave Barry

You can always count on Americans to do the right thing – after they’ve tried everything else. ~ Winston Churchill

Have a great Independance Day Weekend!

It is by the goodness of God that in our country we have those three unspeakably precious things: freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and the prudence never to practice either of them. ~ Mark Twain

Soli Deo Gloria

Originally posted on Charis: Subject to Change:

Soli Deo Gloria Soli Deo Gloria

I am pleading with the Eternal for this one thing,
my soul’s desire:
To live with Him all of my days—
in the shadow of His temple,
To behold His beauty and ponder His ways
in the company of His people.

His house is my shelter and secret retreat.
It is there I find peace in the midst of storm and turmoil.
Safety sits with me in the hiding place of God.
He will set me on a rock, high above the fray.

God lifts me high above those with thoughts
of death and deceit that call for my life.
I will enter His presence, offering sacrifices and praise.
In His house, I am overcome with joy
As I sing, yes, and play music for the Eternal alone.

(Psalm 27 The Voice)
