Post 80


I am blessed with peace today. The Lord has been blessing me with peace for so long now.

The Lord blessed the Nanneys with new leather furniture, thanks to the geonerosity of Thomasville Furnature Co. We all enjoy.

Got him! That trickster.


Nice hat huh?! Just a little big.

God's glory is something exciting. I've been thinking on Lu 2:14 lately, and you've got me thinking on it even more. With special emphasis on the GLORY.

Lu 9:14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
Now you've got to think about it. I've heard the verse so many times, it just went right over my head at first. But there's a bunch of wonder in that verse. Glory to God it the highest... God's glory FILLS the heavens, isn't it amazing that we can actually add to it, and give Him MORE glory! Peace on the earth... the earth is a big place. It's an especially a big place to be filled with peace. I think of this as a blessing pronounced on the whole earth, a prophecy of peace enveloping the world. If that's what He came to do, dare we say that He is insufficient to accomplish it? Good will toward men... God has a good will toward men. He wants to do them good. He wants the best for us THANK YOU LORD, You have been sooo good to me! Sounds a lot like Bro. Nanny doesn't it? "God's in a Good Mood"

So there you go, enjoy the glory of the Lord!

Here's a few other verses that encouraged me in the glory of God...
Isa 60:1 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.
Hab 2:14 For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.
Ro 4:20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;

I played in the leaves with the kids Sunday. It was such a beautiful fall day, pretty warm.

The snow came! I love the change. Little delights fluttering down from heaven.

Here's some more thoughts I need to mention in regards to Post 79...

Your right Mrs. Thompson, it did not hold much sympathy. I may think I have sorrows about people I've known; I can't imagine the regrets if this happened to my friends or worse yet my family. Especially seeing all the big hopes and dreams of the parents for their children to live for God, as noted by the bold and drastic means they took to keep them from evil (consistent involvement in. church, home school, "christian" music, father an Elder in the church, discouragement of improper relationships) It is very sad that Satan sucked these poor young children into such a delusion of happiness. They did not know about true happiness, they thought they would find it in each other. Lord, help them find true happiness. Happy in the man who will put his trust in God. The Lord kept me in prayer over these young people throughout the night after I sent out that email, mostly for the 18 yr old boy. Lord, give him a soft repentant heart of confession, that he may come to full freedom in Christ. I feel for him most deeply.

The main thing I that jumped out to me in the article was the striking similarities between my circles, and the ones with whom this tragedy happened; And saw it as a stiff warning to not allow outward conformance to replace true surrender to God. It reminded me of so many families I've seen fall to shambles, who started out with such high ideals.

But, I want to breed hope. It doesn't have to be that way. People can have a heart for God, people can raise families with children who know God; Who sore even higher than their parents; Who are not delusioned by vain traditions, but are a true-to-life friend of God. I was sad to hear of your own close call with a family tragedy, be assured you aren't alone. God grant you unity, and love.

These comments are just off-the-cuff. So according to this very elaborate disclaimer, I reserve the freedom to revise these comments at a later date if I think of something I should have said. But I wanted to get these thoughts off to you before too late.

Love you all, and miss you very much. Want to see you soon, and we can talk in person on this if so desired (as long as it doesn't cause a war, I hate wars). Please have a very blessed Thanksgiving, and don't let these things drag you down. I think were all on the same page.

Hugs, Bear
