I am truely grateful for all of Gods blessings. We are a blessed nation. I am grateful for the greatest gift of all Jesus Christ. Christmas always brings the spirit of giving and many are helped thur food and other means. But why don't we give each and everyday??? There is a need. We have so much here.
I have seen the best of times and the worst of times within my own country and outside my country. Our troops are giving theirs lives in more ways than one. War is ugly and I am not grateful for it. I must admit that I am not flag burner. I love this country but I don't like what the leaders are doing. This on going war is ugly and many are suffering the born, unborn, old and the young, soldiers and finally for those who truly want peace. My bible tell me to pray for our enemies and I am asking God ti give me strength to do this. I am in much prayer about all of this. For all of this who are serving I am praying for a safe return and for those who are innocently suffering my prayers are going to the mercy seat continually. This is a way for me to heal or post to sort take care of the images I have seen because of this war.
I will be the first to say that only Christ coming will bring peace and I hope that our leaders--all leaders come to relize this one day. Only his coming again and his restoration of things as they begun before the enemy tried to destroy the plan of God. One day his plan will be placed in this earth.
AND I SAW A NEW HEAVEN AND A NEW EARTH: FOR THE FIRST HEAVEN AND THE FIRST EARTH WERE PASSED AWAY; AND THERE WAS NO MORE SEA.
AND GOD SHALL WIPE AWAY ALL TEARS FROM THEIR EYES; AND THERE SHALL BE NO MORE DEATH, NEITHER SORROW, NOR CRYING, NEITHER SHALL THERE BE ANY MORE PAIN: FOR THE FORMER THINGS ARE PASSED AWAY.
Christ first coming brought hope-salvation. At his second coming he will make things the way he wants them to be.
So Am reminded by this verse that there is hope. I give him thanks and praise for his mercy in the midst of all things........
