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.

22 Signs That Barack Obama Is Transforming America Into A Larger Version Of North Korea

"The truth is that we desperately need to take America in the opposite direction of where Barack Obama is trying to take us.  We need a much smaller federal government, a much greater emphasis on freedom and liberty, a return to true free market capitalism, and politicians that are willing to take a low profile and that are actually there to serve the American people."

22 Signs That Barack Obama Is Transforming America Into A Larger Version Of North Korea

ON THE BRINK

Military forces in Syria, Lebanon and Jordan have raised their alert levels following an Israeli attack inside Syria on Wednesday.
http://www.infowars.com/high-military-alert-across-middle-east-following-israeli-attack-inside-syria/

WILL HISTORY REPEAT HERE?

“Throughout history, disarming the populace has always preceded tyrants’ accession of power. Hitler, Stalin, and Mao all disarmed their citizens prior to installing their murderous regimes,” states the letter. 

“At the beginning of our own nation’s revolution, one of the first moves made by the British government was an attempt to disarm our citizens. When our Founding Fathers ensured that the 2nd Amendment was made a part of our Constitution, they were not just wasting ink. They were acting to ensure our present security was never forcibly endangered by tyrants, foreign or domestic.”

EXPLOSIVE SITUATION

"Israeli jets just attacked a military convoy that crossed into Lebanon from Syria. The reports indicated that Israel was attacking the transfer of high-tech weapons to Hezbollah.
This is huge escalation of the war. Israel has warned and warned it would not allow Hezbollah to obtain these weapons and would go to war. Syria said if Israel attacked it would start a regional war. Iran said that an attack on Syria was the same as attacking Iran. This situation is now explosive."

MANY GOOD THINGS

 I love this blog for its useful and money-saving info. Check out "how to make a box cake mix taste homemade" and a year's worth of laundry detergent for $30. 

And here's how I doctor a boxed cake mix:

Use buttermilk instead of the amount of water called for on the box
Add four eggs instead of amount suggested
Add oil or butter in the amount the box suggests    
Add a box of instant pudding in the same flavor as the cake

MEAN GIRLS NEED A HONEY LESSON

Television, the music industry, and everything we see and hear is becoming more and more unholy, ungodly, and unbelievable. Last night on the Bachelor, at the end of the show, a swear word was spoken and not bleeped out.

 I have now drawn a line in the sand and decided that the show has become too trashy to watch. Actually it's been too trashy for a while now, but I couldn't let it go. The way those girls talk meanly about each other is no example for our daughters. Some of the girls talk about hurting each other and bringing down the competition. This kind of behavior is then repeated by girls who watch the show and think it's okay to fight over a guy and do whatever it takes to reduce the competition, even if it means hurting someone. 

There is one good lesson for those who watch The Bachelor. Every season, except for Ben's season, you see the mean girls going home one by one. And the girl who was kind, the girl who didn't say mean things about the others is the girl who is chosen. The lesson is that you can catch a fly (guy) with honey. There's no need to do anything more than be sweet and wait. The competition will self destruct on its own. 

DARK MUSIC

"There is a children's Bible song that say, "Be careful little ears what you hear."  We must be wise in these last days; wise about what we hear and what we allow our children to listen to.  The spiritual war we fight against the enemy is getting hotter each day, but it is also becoming more blatant.  Make sure you are not bewitched so that you have eyes to see."

Criminals don't obey laws, so why more gun laws? WATCH VIDEO

DEBT CRISIS AND DIVIDING ISRAEL: TROUBLE FOR AMERICA

Plus the dividing of Israel's land will most assuredly leave America in trouble in 2013 - 2016 ....  http://www.wnd.com/2013/01/obama-secretly-pledges-to-divide-jerusalem/  .... 
But we know that according to the Prophet Joel (chapter3:2), which is a very end-time prophecy, at some point the land of Israel will be divided up.... 
verse (2.) I will gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat which is in the Kidron valley just east of Jerusalem.. Jehoshaphat means Jehovah is Judge... 
Joel is most likely describing one of God's last judgements on the nations whom scattered His  people and parted (divided-up) His land... A decision made by God to enter into judgement with them for their treatment against Israel and Jerusalem in those days and in that time (verse 1 )... So what days and time, ( chapter 2:31 ) before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes.....
Prepare for the worst......... Hope and pray for the best... Prophecy was given to us so that when it is fulfilled in completeness or even when we see it begin to set-up, you will know before hand, God is who He says He is and will do just what He says He will do ......
17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.
 18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. ( Matthew 5: 17-18 )

The Psychiatric Wolves Attack More Innocent Children


So now, every child in school who twitches the wrong way or picks up a bubble-gum toy shaped like a pistol, or points his finger at a friend and says Bang, or looks sad and lonely for ten minutes at the back of the class on a rainy Tuesday, or draws pictures when he should be adding numbers in his notebook, or wears odd clothes, or gets angry for any reason at all, or objects to taking a vaccine, or wears a jacket with a small American flag sewn to the shoulder, or doesn’t play well with others, or makes a positive statement in class about the Bill of Rights, or reminds a teacher of a little criminal in a movie, or has a bottle opener in his pocket, or dreams in class about designing a rocket that will take people to Mars…can be referred to a counselor, who in turn will refer him to a psychiatrist, who will make some sort of off-the-shelf diagnosis, which will travel with the child for the rest of his life, making the child believe he has a brain problem, and the psychiatrist will prescribe that child drugs like Ritalin, Adderall, Zoloft, Paxil, or Prozac, drugs that scramble neurotransmitter systems and can very certainly cause that child to go violent. That is the reality.

THE LIE THAT LEADS TO SORROW

The lie this man talks about is the very same lie that I talk about in my present speech, Cultural Lies or Biblical Truth, What's a Girl to Believe? Girls today have a very selfish, materialistic view of life. I heard one girl say recently that she wants to enjoy being married before she has children, as if children are some kind of curse.

 I've been a career woman and there has not been a single moment in my career that even comes close to the joy and satisfaction I got from being a mother. Homemakers and stay-at-home moms have come under attack in this culture. They are seen as lazy and living privileged lives.

Anyone who criticizes a homemaker or stay-at-home mom better not claim to be a Christian. I have the scripture to put them in their place. The roles of wife and mother are roles assigned to women by God. A career is fine for a woman before she has children. But a culture that glorifies career over motherhood and homemaking is a culture that doesn't know or live by God's word- Danelle


"Sadly, many of our daughters’ friends are trapped by the lie that a woman’s life can only be fulfilled by a successful career. They put off child-bearing, strap themselves financially so that a “quiver-full” is out of the realm of possibility, and spend their lives in pursuit of all of the “stuff” the culture tells them they must have.

Motherhood is Abby’s career. It is the greatest vocation a woman could ever aspire to.
The Bible is true. Children are a heritage of the Lord, the fruit of the womb is His reward. All of our lives are filled with joy because of her little Reese. Life is always a good choice.
But many of America’s women have chosen death. They have been lied to. They listened to the hum of the humanistic culture and its promise of self satisfaction. They bought into the promise of college, career, and the collection of conveniences it provides"

Dave Daubenmire -- Submerged in Sorrow

A NASTY VIRUS ON THE MOVE

Norovirus - once known as Norwalk virus - is highly contagious and often spreads in places like schools, cruise ships and nursing homes, especially during the winter. Last month, 220 people on the Queen Mary II were stricken during a Caribbean cruise.

PILLS WITH A PRICE (WATCH VIDEO)

"If lawmakers and authorities are truly concerned about stopping gun violence in schools, they need to take a close look at the prescription of psychotropic drugs for children and young people, says a leading psychiatrist... 

When roughly nine out of every 10 cases in these school shootings and mass shootings involve these drugs being prescribed, then at least a significant proportion of these cases were either caused by the drugs or the drugs made a significant contribution to the problem...

Very few children have serious problems that warrant treatment with pills that have the risks SSRI drugs have. The drugs can make children aggressive and hostile...


 We are giving drugs to children who are passing through critical development stages, and as a society we are really conducting a vast experiment and no one really knows what the outcome of that will be.

Independently, a sortable database of 4,800 cases in which SSRI drugs have been associated with violent behavior in the U.S. and worldwide has been posted on the Internet, compiled from incidents that have appeared in the media, scientific journals and Federal Drug Administration testimony.

SSRI drugs covered in the sortable database include Prozac (fluoxetine), Zoloft (sertraline), Paxil (paroxetine), Celexa (citalopram), Lexapro (escitalopram) and Luvox (fluvoxamine).

CAN'T SEE THE PLAN

A great history lesson about the planned destruction of America, how our monetary system was put under control of private international bankers, and how our foreign and domestic policies are controlled by the wealthy elite.  

The first step toward a one-world government was the creation of the United Nations. America must be brought down along with the value of the US dollar in order to usher in a one-world government and a one-world currency. This is why you see Obama side-stepping congress and going to the UN for approval of his decisions. 

Most people are unaware of the planned destruction of America and how it all lines up with Bible prophecy.  - Danelle 


"This plan has been spoken of out in the open; it is fully documented and has been written about in books and articles for over 100 years. It was never a secret! In order for anyone, including political leaders, media, and Christian leaders not to have known about it, they would have to have gone out of their way to willfully close their eyes. If someone tells you they love you and care for you and say they are Christians, is it not their most minimal duty to be faithful Watchmen?" -Paul McGuire

Americans pop the most pills of any other nation, and that includes children. Americans also receive the most amount of vaccinations.

Blood samples from American newborns contained an average of 287 toxins, including mercury, fire retardants, pesticides, and chemicals from non stick products.

Soybean oil is a common unhealthy ingredient in many processed foods in America and soybeans can be severely and systemically contaminated with high amounts of the potent herbicide glyphosate. 

Over 85 percent of all corn grown in the US is genetically engineered (GE)3, which further increases the risk of high glyphosate contamination.

NOTHING MORE ENDEARING THAN A REAL WOMAN

I love Lysa Terkeurst because she's not afraid to be real. She tells you when she's a mess. She's open about her struggles and she doesn't pretend to be perfect. Women like that rock my world. 

I adore that kind of "lay it all out there" attitude. To me there's nothing more endearing about a woman than her ability to be real. Too many women pretend that they are perfect, pretend their children are perfect, their lives are perfect and they do no wrong and have no problems. The only one they're fooling is themselves. 

The link below shares a heartfelt message from Lysa, who is struggling with something I can relate to. Read her blog and check out the other (written by women) blog links that she lists. I'm sure you'll be encouraged and her new book Unglued is on my list of winter reading titles. Lysa is a fabulous author. She writes about subjects that matter to women. Subjects that women can really relate to.

THE WAY TO CHANGE

"I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty... - I Timothy 2: 1-5

On this blog, I have criticised President Obama countless times, but I'm ashamed to say that I haven't been praying for him. Righteous indignation means I have the right to question the president and I will continue to do so. But pointing out faults does nothing to change a situation. Only prayer can change things. 

 I was reminded recently that Christians are instructed in the Bible to pray for those in positions of authority. Charles Stanley offers these tips for praying for our President. Will you join me in taking these requests before the Lord in prayer.

We should ask that President Obama will...

1. Realize that he has been given that position by God

2. Recognize his personal inadequacy for the task and look to God for wisdom

3. Restore dignity, honor, trustworthiness, and righteousness to the presidency. 

4. Forsake his political career and his personal ambitions if doing so would be in the best interest of the country. 

5. Reverse the destructive trends of atheism, and humanism that try to dethrone God, deify man, and lead to an ungodly society.

6. Respect and obey the Constitution- the protector of our freedoms. 

7. Reject all counsel that weakens our defenses against aggressors or endorses agreements that would do so in the future. 

8. Refuse to promote a way of life in which citizens become increasingly dependent on the government for their needs. 

9. Remember that he is accountable to Almighty God for his attitudes, motives, behaviors, and decisions. 

10. Resolve to help the nation again become a place of creativity, security, national pride, and individual prosperity, where God is recognized as the Source of all our blessings.

Is Facebook envy making you miserable?

Here's an interesting article about how Facebook affects some people. I can understand why people might become envious and depressed at seeing the achievements and good fortune of their friends on Facebook, but if you really are a friend, shouldn't you be happy for that person who went on vacation, or that person who got so many birthday wishes? 

On the other hand, Facebook can promote a narcissistic, all about me, platform where we can all have our 15 minutes of fame. Maybe it gives us a taste of celebrity when so many people "like" us. I've even heard people brag about how many friends they have.

I think it all comes down to having the right perspective about Facebook. If you see it as some kind of lifeline that you couldn't live without, then maybe you need to get out more. If you get depressed because your Facebook friends seem to have happier lives, then maybe you need to pin your self worth to something more meaningful than physical attractiveness, vacations, and birthday wishes.

25 Signs American Women Are Being Destroyed By The Sexual Revolution And Our Promiscuous Culture

One out of every six Americans between the ages of 14 and 49 has genital herpes, the STD that stays with you for life. 

"In the United States today, men have been trained to primarily view women as sex objects, and our culture has become exceedingly promiscuous.  As a result, the United States leads the world in teen pregnancy, there are 19 million new STD infections every single year, more than half of all children born to women under the age of 30 are being born out of wedlock and we are witnessing the systematic breakdown of the family unit in America.  And yet anyone that tries to teach our young women that they should dress modestly and keep themselves pure for marriage is severely criticized."

"America’s culture has come a long way since the 60s. For decades it has resembled a filthy sewer and shows no signs of returning to decency. Children are being sexualized with markets targeting little girls as young as kindergarten age. Cable television (which includes ABC, CBS, NBC) has become nothing more than a purveyor of soft porn. Sexual imagery is everywhere. The filth used to be confined to porn channels like HBO, Cinemax and others which I have never had in my home. Now, it’s the ‘big three’ (ABC, CBS, NBC) and all the other networks that consistently pump sin and sex into households every night of the week."

THE PRICE OF WIRELESS

No one seems concerned about the damage that can be done to the brain through the constant use of cell phones and other wireless devices. Studies are coming out that prove the negative effects of using this technology daily. Pregnant women who use laptops and cell phones are not aware that such wireless devices may alter the brain development of the fetus and may cause miscarriage. Children and adolescents may be adversely affected by wireless classrooms.

But if you warn people about this, they most likely would laugh at you. This is an interesting news-bit about the toys the world thinks they need to survive , from wireless technologies such as cell and cordless phones, cell towers, Wi-Fi, wireless laptops, wireless routers, baby monitors, surveillance systems, and wireless utility meters (smart meters).....

SIT BACK AND ENJOY THE SHOW!

"Let me warn you, what you’re watching is going to get pretty disturbing. It may upset you quite a bit or even give you nightmares. The story gets real nasty, that’s for sure. But, you have to remember; every action, line of script, every startling boom or blast is being carefully choreographed and under complete control. We, who are watching from the safety of the Great Director’s balcony, must remember to NOT get so caught up in the plot that we start fearing for our safety.
 
We might get splashed just a little here and there with the special effects, but it’ll wash right off when we get home, because we aren’t going to see this whole story anyway. We’re going home early and that’s great! It’s a yucky story anyway, and we’ll have much more fun going to the Great Director’s magnificent house to sit around His banquet table, feasting and laughing our heads off. It’s gonna ROCK!
 
Don’t forget; what we’re seeing now is only a play. Give poor ‘ol satan his day in the sun, so to speak. He’s such a whiny diva, that he needs to learn how inadequate an actor he really is. So, while we’re still here in the theatre, sit back, relax and watch the show. We’ll be leaving pretty soon"

SLOW SUFFOCATION (WATCH VIDEO)

I discovered this article and video last week, but didn't post it because it sounded too crazy to be true. Today I decided to post it anyway and let you decide. This really isn't so crazy considering the recent gun control push by Obama so soon after the Sandy Hook shootings. Things are changing very quickly in America and the changes are hitting hard and fast.

I no longer think that martial law in America is a fear mongering mindset. With all the ways that government has taken over our lives by creating new laws (the list is too long), invading our privacy (naked body scanners), and putting its nose where it shouldn't be (healthcare), we must know that it's only a matter of time before something new is rammed down our throats.

Disarming Americans, Arming Terrorists

SUFFERING, BUT HOPEFUL

Many people are suffering. So I'd like to talk about the trials of life and how we can deal with them. For the past year, I have felt as though I'm being beaten down. Just when I think that I'm healing from one ailment, another physical problem bears down on me. Right now I'm dealing with tingling in my legs that won't let me sleep. It's related to a back and neck injury.

I'm told that any injuries to the spine and neck can cause all kinds of problems with the nervous system. I'm dealing with leg cramps and an annoying tingling that feels like water running through my legs or tiny pin pricks. I've had insomnia for six years, so this sensation in my legs makes sleep even more impossible.

Needless to say, I am discouraged. It would be very easy for me to give up on this blog and all that I'm doing to lead people to Christ. I may have to slow down, but as long as God gives me the strength, I'll keep plugging away.

There are times that God chooses to heal us. Sometimes he does remove our physical infirmities. But he also, at times, chooses not to heal. The Apostle Paul talks about physical sufferings and difficulties in the Bible. In II Corinthians 12:7 Paul says that he was given a "thorn in the flesh" to keep him humble. He basically said, "It's as though the messenger of Satan uses it to beat me down, but I'm not going to be discouraged. I prayed to the Lord three times that it would depart from me."

After praying three times, God said to Paul, "My grace is sufficient for you; for my strength is made perfect in weakness." Instead of getting mad at God, Paul says in verse 9, "Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest on me. For when I am weak, then I am strong."

Paul saw Jesus face to face. He was sure of his salvation. He didn't doubt there was a Heaven and that he would have eternal life. This certainty led him to have no fear in standing up for his faith.  He endured persecution, rejection, abuse and physical suffering because he knew that what he was preaching was true. He knew that people's lives could be changed if they would accept Christ.

The only hope of our world is God and salvation through Jesus Christ. People who think that this life is all there is and once they're dead they're dead, ...well they really have nothing to live for because the end result is laying in a pine box of nothingness forever. When you have the hope of eternal life, nothing can keep you down for long. A life in Heaven, free of pain and suffering is our blessed hope. It's what keeps us going.

VACCINATE TO NO END, WHAT GOOD DOES IT DO?

"Vaccines and vaccinations play around with—and apparently interfere with—Nature’s intended immunology playbook called innate immunity. Vaccines reprogram human biology to produce antigen-specific responses, which ‘last’ for only a short while, if at all, therefore the need for all the mandated booster shots with neurotoxins and other hazardous chemicals. That probably is the apparent reason why infectious diseases today are being contracted by those (children, in particular) who have been fully vaccinated."

"There can no longer be any doubt – the forces of tyranny are running wild across our once great Republic. The time has come for all good men and women to rally to the aid of their country. We have now entered a historic crossroads that will decide the destiny of the United States. Arrogance and corruption has long festered in Washington DC, but the last decade has seen an extreme acceleration of criminal looting and attacks on liberty – every freedom is under sustained assault."

Troops Ordered To Kill All Americans Who Do Not Turn In Guns

The Federal Reserve Shows Barack Obama Who The Real Boss Is

"Sadly, most Americans don't even realize that a private banking cartel has a monopoly over all money creation in this country.  In recent years they have abused this power by wildly printing money ("quantitative easing"), and by making more than 16 trillion dollars in secret loans to their friends during the last financial crisis.  Under our system, the private Federal Reserve creates money whenever they want, and nobody else gets to create money.  It is an insane system, but very, very few of our politicians will ever dare to question it."

LOSING FAITH IN SOCIAL STABILITY

In my view, the spectacle in the gun store, which apparently has played out nationwide, is a clear indication that people are doing the equivalent of "shorting" social stability. This is clearly concerning, because the extent to which we can plan our future is directly related to the faith we can reasonably place in social stability.

Flu epidemic strikes millions of Americans already vaccinated against the flu

For those of you who still think a flu shot is a good idea, read this. You are poisoning your body with mercury, aluminum, MSG and formaldehyde for the gamble that it might protect you. Makes no sense to me. Yet every year they line up like trained seals to have this toxic mixture injected into their bodies as the vaccine manufacturers laugh all the way to the bank.

WHERE'S YOUR SACRIFICE, MR. HAWAII?

President Obama frequently calls on the American people to make sacrifices, but he is simply unwilling to lead by example and do so himself. In a speech in Virginia back in April 2011, Obama famously declared:
We are going to have to ask everybody to sacrifice. And if we’re asking community colleges to sacrifice, if we’re asking people who are going to see potentially fewer services in their neighborhoods to make a little sacrifice, then we can ask millionaires and billionaires to make a little sacrifice.

BLIND, SIDELINED CHURCH WHILE NATION DIES

"When I look down the road of 2013, the year looks like war, civil unrest with great bloodshed. The very sad thing about this is that the church remains blinded and on the sidelines while the nation is dying. The combination of abortion, the homosexual agenda and touching Israel has brought all the curses of the Bible on America. 2013 might very well be known as the year of guns and taxes."

Audio Prophecy Update: An Interesting Year Ahead

http://www.calvarychapelkaneohe.com/index.php?view=sermon&id=10790%3Aprophecy-update-2013-01-06&option=com_sermonspeaker&Itemid=136

OPEN HOUSE, OPEN HEART

Hebrews 13:2 

Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.

1 Peter 4:9 

Show hospitality to one another without grumbling.


Rarely do I leave a gathering of people without saying something I later regret. Sometimes when I intend to be humorous it backfires and my words aren't taken as funny. Sometimes when I try to clarify something, my questioning is met with defensiveness. Many times in my life I have wished that I could suck those words right back into my mouth  I wish that no one would have heard what I said.

The thing about socializing is that we don't have time to analyze everything we're going to say. A conversation would become stale very quickly if we truly thought about every word and how our words might be perceived. So, of course, it is inevitable that on occasion something will slip out of our mouths that we wish we wouldn't have said. We wish that we would have chosen our words more carefully.

This was the case for me recently when I was making conversation with a woman who had moved into a new home. "You haven't been to our house yet," she said. I put on my best joking face and said, "I wasn't invited." The woman behind me quickly chided, "Oh just go. You don't have to be invited." We laughed and no one seemed hurt by my comment, but I felt uncomfortable after saying it. As if I was accusing this woman of not being hospitable. I had never invited her to my house either, so the same could be said about me. 

As I drove home I wondered how true it was. In this day and age is it really true that we can "just go" anywhere without an invitation and expect to be welcomed there? Would I welcome someone who showed up on my doorstep unexpectedly? I thought about times past when people had dropped in without notice and to my shame I recalled feeling annoyed at times by unexpected company.  But I shouldn't feel that way. 

When I was a girl, my parents went visiting often. And I recall people dropping by to spend time chatting with my parents. Sometimes those conversations would be spoken in Pennsylvania Dutch and I would get mad because I couldn't understand what the adults were saying. I have many fond childhood memories of visiting other people's homes and having people visit our home. In fact, if I compared the amount of visiting I did as a child to the amount of visiting I do now, it would be embarrassing to report. 

Why has this changed so much? Why aren't our homes open to visitors as they were years ago? And why do we so rarely invite guests into our homes? I believe the answer is because women's lives have changed. Women spend much of their time outside the home, either working or running their children to activities. When they finally do get home, they're exhausted and the thought of an unexpected guest can feel overwhelming. 

The house is a mess. It's been a week since she went to the grocery store, so the pantry is empty. And having to socialize takes energy. After working 40 hours at her job and another 40 at home, cooking, cleaning, caring for kids, and running them here and there, the lady of the house is ready for a hot bath and a nap, not an unexpected guest. Hospitality is one more thing on the list. It's one thing that we can easily scratch off and not bother with. 

But this is a wrong attitude according to the Bible, which has much to say about hospitality. There are many fine examples of hospitable women in the Bible. We often think of Mary and Martha as an example. Most of us know that story. But another great example is Rebekah. She is the first person that Abraham's servant meets when he travels across the desert to find a wife for Isaac. Rebekah meets him at the well and she is quick to give the man a drink. Then she goes a step further and offers to water his camels too.  You might think that was an easy task, but it probably required fetching a hundred gallons or more. 

Remember that she was doing all this for a total stranger. And Rebekah didn't stop there. She then invited the servant and his entourage to spend the night, which required even more work because you know those men were hungry. How many women today would take on that much work for someone they don't know? I would guess about zero. But according to the scripture above, we never know when that stranger might be an angel sent by God to test our hospitality.

I guess I have one more thing to add to my New Year's resolution list. I resolve to be more hospitable. I want to keep Rebekah in mind this year and pray that God will use me that way. I'll have to pray for her energy, but God can give me that. I want to make more of an effort to invite people into my home, and if a friend shows up unexpected, I will greet her with a sincere smile and let her know she's welcome. And just to be funny, I'll tell her how glad I am that she didn't come by camel.

GIRLS JUST WANT TO BE BOYS

"Your adornment must not be merely external–braiding the hair, and wearing gold jewelry, or putting on dresses; but let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in the sight of God." (1 Peter 3:3-4).

How things have changed. When I was a girl, my friends and I weren't loud and rowdy. We didn't burp out loud and yell out random things that came to mind. We didn't throw our bodies around, crash into each other and fall on the ground, just to be silly and get a laugh. Those were things that boys did. 

But today, girls act more like boys. They take no pride in being quiet or gentle. Today if a girl displays ladylike qualities, she's seen as being "prissy." Girls who act like ladies are called "girlie girls"  and they're made fun of. Today's girls want to be tough, loud, obnoxious, rowdy, ungraceful and without manners. They take pride in being more boyish than girlish. 

It's okay to be silly once in a while, but there's a price to pay when girls don't live up to the behavior that God expects from them. There's a price to pay when the goal is only to draw attention to yourself and show off. One day all that loud, silly, obnoxious behavior will come back to bite her. Someone might even end up getting hurt. And she will have only herself to blame. 

Read the blog post at the link below, written by a 20-year-old preacher's daughter. She says it better than I can. And after reading her post, I realized that I'm not the only one who has noticed this change in girls.

What To Do If Someone Sins Against You: The Teaching of Jesus

After years of watching how people handle personal conflict, its clear that few people know what the Bible says on this subject. I was struggling with this very thing myself. And although I did try to talk it over with the person as the Bible instructs, I wasn't satisfied with the outcome, because instead of the offender admitting doing wrong, lies were told to cover up the truth. 

Knowing that this person lied to me, I wondered how God expected me to respond. Should I avoid the person? When I came across the teaching below, I found my answer. I'm posting this in the hope that it might help someone else to know what to do if someone sins against you. Following the Bible's teachings is never easy, but I believe there is great blessing for those who look to the Bible for guidance in such matters. The rewards of following the directions of Jesus outweigh the costs.

EYES WIDE OPEN, EARS ATTENTIVE

I've been hesitant to post articles like this because of the tyrannical tone of the subject. But I've come across too many sources that are reporting the same things, and this tells me that the truth wants to be known. We want to close our ears and blind our eyes to this possibility because it's scary. But ignorance is not bliss when it comes to government overstepping its boundaries. Our eyes must be open. Our ears must be listening. No matter how scary it is.

ONE THING IN COMMON

"Every brutal dictator from Mao to Stalin to Mussolini to Hitler all have one thing in common. They all disarmed their citizens prior to placing them into subjection. And once having disarmed them, they all lorded over the people with fully-loaded weapons, using them at the slightest provocation. Hitler would never have been able to round up the Jews and place them in ghettos on their way to the concentration camps had those same Jews had weapons."

Should We Fight or Give In?

"There are some issues that are worth dying for and the 2nd amendment is one, as the alternative is to be rounded up and carted away in trucks, like the Jews were during WWII."  -L.A. Marzulli

SHOULD CHRISTIANS FIGHT FOR GUN RIGHTS? 
By Jim Carvell 
This issue is not going to go away any time soon. How should law abiding citizens and Christians actually view this matter.... Uncle Sam wants our 2nd Amendment rights nullified.  As I write this, Uncle is working on removing our right to bare arms, one bill at a time.. A little here, a little later ... Sen. Feinstein is one leading this charge:  http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/274891-sen-feinstein-america-has-to-bite-the-bullet-and-enact-new-gun-control-measures

 and   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=blXkl9YVoHo&feature=player_embedded

The problem is, she is a huge hypocrite on protection. For herself it's all right.. but for the rest of us it's not: veiw this clip of her own words:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1EObqM9Z0s

It's no different for Biden, he is another hypocrite leading the the charge. But he had different words to tell America a couple years ago. View his own words: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zNjmcU3Ab5camp;feature=player_embedded .....

How can we trust these people who have no conscience, who out right lie, who have no righteousness?.... The Holy Bible tell us in Proverbs 14:15  Only a simpleton believes what he is told !  A prudent man checks to see where he is going.  Proverbs 14:8  The wise man looks ahead. The fool attempts to fool himself and won't face facts..

Governing people whom we put into these positions of authority over us, are to be righteous and moral. They are to represent us ( the people) not a corrupt hidden agenda... These six things does the LORD hate: A proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood. a heart that has a wicked imagination, one who runs swiftly to mischief and a false witness that speaks lies... Proverbs 6: 16-19 ( Is it just me, or does this look like what we see ever day with the leadership in America ).
Christians, we need to Pray and seek Gods wisdom and instructions for these things coming on us... For when a man's ways please the LORD, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him  Proverbs 16:7 .
When people and nations willingly  allow their governments to disarm them and force them into oppression, and exterminate them for their beliefs or ancestry or just  for power and control over them  .. is this really being obedient to what God asks of us?...is this Gods judgement on us and there is nothing we should do?...

God's not going to bring the Church to a premature end, because he is still redeeming souls onto Himself. We are to occupy until He returns, but just what does that mean? Did the early Church lay over and die, give up with out a fight? Is God going to supernaturally protect us or supernaturally strengthen and equip us as He did so many times in the past with His people the Jews?
L.A. Marzulli a well know Bible Prophecy commentator gives his thoughts on this issue. Most Church leaders as a whole are not going to give their opinions or even their thoughts. They been silenced by the threats from the liberal apostate left . But I for one am perplexed on this subject, and appreciate some of Marzulli's thoughts & analysis:
Commentary Below 
by L. A. Marzulli

What stands in the way of toppling the United States is the 2nd amendment. This amendment to the constitution was implemented in the event the government became tyrannical, the citizenry would have the ability to defend itself. 

Hitler rounded up the guns as well the Communist. Over 70 million Russians lost their lives in the Gulags. Over 80 million Chinese have been killed by their government and Hitler rounded up millions of his own people too!

Jews rounded up in trucksThere is a greater issue here and I believe it is this. In order to establish the one world government prophecy tells us will form under the Anti Christ, America has to be removed. I wrote about his in Politics, Prophecy & the Supernatural. This will be accomplished by removing the 2nd amendment and the government rounding up the guns, and then collapsing the dollar, which will plunge the nation into chaos, something I believe is desired for the control of the populace.
Our guns are the reason why we are free. Never forget this. There are some issues that are worth dying for and the 2nd amendment is one as the alternative is to be rounded up and carted away in trucks, like the Jews were during WWII.

In closing todays post: We have the right to bear arms. We have the right to defend ourselves. Guns do not kill people, nor do knives, golf clubs, candle sticks, forks, automobiles, pool cues and almost an infinite variety of implements! Take away the guns and the criminals will have a field day and the government can do what it pleases. The media have chosen to ignore the link between violent behavior and mind altering drugs. The reason for this is simple, their left-wing ideology prohibits them from reporting the truth as their goal is to disarm the American people.

Our country was founded on self-reliance. I live in a remote area, where if I call 911, it would take at least a half an hour to get someone here. My wife and I took a gun training class and we are armed. I’m not relying on our government to save me should someone bust into my house at 2 in the morning. As Alex Jones remarked to Morgan, you’re a hatchet man for the new world order!

Wake up people, Senator Feinstein of California is sending a bill on gun control to Congress. In my opinion this is an orchestrated attempt to abolish the 2nd amendment. Now is the time to stand up and be counted and let our government know, with the utmost certainty, that we will not, under any circumstances, relinquish our 2nd amendment rights! Period! Give me liberty our give me death! Patrick Henry

HOT LEMON TEA AND A NAP

I've been sneezing and going through tissues all day. A runny nose always makes me tired.  This site shares some great natural remedies and a three day juice fast that I might try if I have the willpower. First, I need a juicer. 

The photos of  lemon honey ginger tea under "feeling better remedies" (use search bar) has inspired me to put the kettle on the stove. I keep lemons in the freezer all year round, and I defrosted one today. After seeing this post, I'm glad I did. It's time for tea. Maybe a nap after that. Hubby and I are going antiquing tomorrow in Lewisburg. Gotta go, the kettle's whistling.

Lauren's Latest » No-Bake Chocolate Chip Granola Bars {easy & healthy!}

I just made these granola bars and they are the best. Healthy ingredients and very easy to make. I love that they have Rice Krispies in them. Be sure to use mini chocolate chips to prevent crumbling when you cut these. The bigger chips cause the bars to separate. Be sure to press down hard when pressing these into a greased pan. I used peanut oil on the pan for extra flavor.

 Let the bars cool before cutting. I put them in the refrigerator for 20 minutes. I'll never buy granola bars again. These are too easy and too good. They are much better than store bought granola bars and their long list of scary ingredients. This recipe is a keeper!

Bouchons by Thomas Keller
Makes  a small batch of about 8-10

Ingredients:
5 ounces unsalted room temperature butter
1/4 cup plus 1 1/2 T all purpose flour
1/2 C plus 2T unsweetened Cocoa powder
1/4 C plus 2 tsp Eggs (about 1 1/2 large eggs total)
1/8 tsp kosher salt
3/4 C plus 1 T granulated sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla paste ( I substituted 1/2 tsp vanilla)
1/2 Cup good quality Chocolate Chips
Powdered Sugar for dusting

Place the flour, sifted cocoa powder and salt in a bowl and whisk.
Combine the eggs, sugar, vanilla in a stand mixer and whisk on med- low speed, scrapping down sides and bottom of bowl. With the mixer running, alternating between the two, add the butter and flour in 3 additions. Then mix to combine well, scraping the bowl as necessary.

Remove bowl, fold in chips. Let sit in a cool spot ( not the refrigerator) for 2 hours. Batter can be made ahead and refrigerated for up to two days, but make sure to let sit at room temp for two hours before filling the molds.

Pre heat oven to 350F

Using a pastry bag or spoon, fill the molds, stopping just below the rims.
Bake for 12 minutes in a convection oven, or 16 minutes ins a standard oven. Remove mold from the oven and let stand 10 minutes(so that they will hold their shape),  then unmold the bouchons  on a cooling rack, turn right side up and let cool completely. Dust tops with powdered sugar.


Tips: He recommends using the convection setting on your oven, valrhona cocoa powder, a Pastry bag and a bouchon mold.
