WELCOME

Knowledge, inspiration, and encouragement from a Christian perspective is my goal. I post a weekly commentary, which could be about world events or the events of my week. Other days I might share stories, recipes, homemaking tips, book reviews, political talk, biblical truth, or other blogs and websites I like. This blog is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get.

NO TIME FOR ISRAEL, HIS HEART IS ELSEWHERE



In “The Audacity of Hope” Barack Obama writes: “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” The quote comes from page 261 of the paperback edition of “The Audacity of Hope. This is one time we can say that he was true to his word.

BE WISE AND WATCH



WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW FROM START TO FINISH. YOU MUST WATCH THIS VIDEO. THIS IS BIBLE PROPHECY COMING TO LIFE AND YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT IT. EVERYTHING IN THIS VIDEO AFFECTS YOU. THIS IS BAD NEWS FOR AMERICA, BUT IT'S NEWS YOU NEED TO KNOW. THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT IF YOU ACCEPTED CHRIST AS YOUR SAVIOR, THEN YOU KNOW HOW IT ENDS. BUT WE'RE STILL INSTRUCTED TO WATCH AND BE READY. THE BIBLE SAYS THAT A WISE MAN WATCHES WHAT GOES ON AROUND HIM. HE SEES WHAT'S COMING AND PREPARES. To watch the video on Framk Dimora's website, go to bibleprophecyman.com or click on that link under Wold Events and Prophecy on the right side of my blog.

TUMORS FOR BREAKFAST

Here are some breakfast cereals to avoid. I'm sure there are more, so read labels. I avoid every cereal that contains corn, corn syrup, soy or soybean oil. Cottonseed and Canola oils are also genetically modified. Scroll down to the bottom of this article for photos of the critters that grew tumors after eating genetically modified corn. Pretty gross!

Tim Tebow's 'Wife With a Servant's Heart' Remarks Misunderstood?

What's so terrible about serving others?  Have we become so self-centered that we think serving others means being a doormat?  God created woman and the first place he intended a woman to serve was as a wife. Genesis 2:18 tells us why God created woman: "And the Lord said, It is not good that the man should be alone. I will make him a helper fit for him."

The word "helper" suggests someone who is capable of thinking about her husband's needs. Women who can't do that don't make good wives and they often end up alone.One of the greatest ways for a woman to invest in a lasting marriage is to develop a servant's heart. This is the kind of woman that decent men look for because they know that marriage isn't easy. A man knows that his wife's attitude will either make his life peaceful or it will drive him crazy.

I was selfish in my first marriage and that marriage ended. I take part of the blame for that and I don't try to hide it. I know that I lacked a servant's heart and it hurt my marriage. As a speaker I advise women to get their minds off themselves and start thinking about their husband's needs and their children's needs.  The amazing thing that often happens when they start doing that is that the whole family begins to change. When a man feels respected he's more likely to show love to his wife, which is exactly what she longs for. So a wife invests in her own happiness by serving her husband. 

The words" serve" and "submit" are two words that are hated by feminists. What we need to ask is this: Do feminists have good marriages? Do they really know what they're talking about and can they prove that being selfish is what makes marriage work? I suspect that many feminists are single and many of them aren't happily married because it just doesn't work when a wife is all about herself. It goes against God's plan for her to be a "helper" to her husband and when you go against God's plan, your life becomes a great big mess. I say that from experience.

Is America The Most Materialistic Society In The History Of The World?

First I want to thank Bob for inspiring me to write this. Your encouragement meant a lot

This past weekend my husband and I attended a wedding reception that was more like a class reunion. Two of our classmates from high school got married. Our graduating class of 1980 now includes many couples who married within our class. In fact, my husband and I are from the same graduating class of Upper Dauphin Area High School.

The conversations I had at Ben and Lisa's wedding reception were quite interesting. We talked about the economy, our high school years, Obamacare, the muslim religion, Lymes Disease...even Jesus was a topic of conversation. But I noticed that no one seemed to be talking about material things.

There was a time when conversations with my classmates had a more competitive nature. Everyone wanted to know who had made something of himself and who was living the good life of wealth and luxury. But we must have grown beyond all that because now people were talking about  more important things, like staying healthy and spending time with family. It was as if we finally realized how unimportant material things really are.

My husband's friends were razzing him about his recent retirement at the young age of 50. They might have been a little jealous, but they have no idea what sacrifices were made to make that possible. I married someone who loves to save money even more than I do. And because of all those weekends we spent at home, the vacations we never took, and all those material things we wanted but never bought, we are now able to live on his retirement income. We have no debt and I only work part time doing things I love...teaching art and writing.

Instead of trying to accumulate material things, we made a life out of living simply without a lot of stuff. While everyone else was increasing their debt, we were working at getting out of debt. And now we're reaping the rewards.

When I look around I see so many people who bring unnecessary stress into their lives because they love to have stuff that they can show off to the neighbors. If they wouldn't have wasted all that money over the years they could probably have a simple house that's paid for. They wouldn't be dependent on others and they wouldn't be a slave to the debt they've accumulated.

To me success has nothing to do with how big your house is, how expensive your car is or how sharply dressed you are. Success is being smart with what you have and doing the most with what you've worked for. Success is having peace of mind and not being a slave to your stuff. Success is realizing that stuff can't make you happy and showing off your stuff brings little satisfaction.  It's savoring simplicity and using the extra time it gives you to appreciate what really matters.

STAY INFORMED, BE PREPARED!


This blog is on hiatus. I strongly encourage you to use the links to the right of my page under World Events and Prophecy to stay informed of what's happening  in America and around the world. We are living in precarious times and being informed is vital to your survival. As we approach the next election, experts are predicting that Obama will declare marshall law by the end of 2012. Our national debt recently hit 16 trillion dollars. War between Iran and Israel is growing closer and consistent patterns of hostility toward Christians are becoming obvious. Our country is changing  and it's not the good kind of change that we were promised. - Danelle

I recommend at least following John McTernan.
