Charlotte: "Mom, if Obama wins will he put lipstick on the pigs?"
Mom: "No sweetie, but where did you hear that?"
Charlotte: "At grandpa's house on the radio, I think."
Both children have been a bit concerned about the election results...
Charlotte: "Is Obama bad or good?"
Mommy:" He is just a man. He might have some good ideas or some bad ones, but God is the one who is in control."
Before dinner yesterday:
Boy: I'm McCain, watch out Obama! (shoots at sister)
Girl: I'm Obama, I'm going to get you McCain! (shoots at brother)
The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will.
The really surprising thing to me was the local ballot measure results... some of the most obviously yes/non-controversial things were voted down. Hello! How hard is it to understand that being taxed twice on the same money is wrong? People just are so strange! I feel a bit like Johnny Depp in the Willy Wonka movie "You're really weird." This just goes to show you that we really are in exile here.
It baffles the mind, the insane suppression of truth in unrighteousness that abounds in our culture today. There are so many things that seem soooo simple and obvious to me, yet the majority of Americans are just blind about. The thing that is really upsetting is that the church in America is so asleep that they might be termed comatose. But what can you expect? If the church in America can't even agree that God created the world in 6 ordinary days, and follow the COMMAND to keep the sabbath, how can we expect maturity in other areas?
"Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, to all who were carried away captive, whom I have caused to be carried away from Jerusalem to Babylon: 5 Build houses and dwell in them; plant gardens and eat their fruit. 6 Take wives and beget sons and daughters; and take wives for your sons and give your daughters to husbands, so that they may bear sons and daughters—that you may be increased there, and not diminished. 7 And seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive, and pray to the LORD for it; for in its peace you will have peace."
Enjoy your families and homes... :-)
I'm really enjoying mine!
