Happy 239th Birthday America!!!

THIS INDEPENDENCE DAY – Have you ever considered what it meant for those 56 men – an eclectic group of ministers, businessmen, teachers, university professors, sailors, captains, farmers – to sign the Declaration of Independence? This was a contract that began with the reasons for the separation from Great Britain and closed in the final paragraph stating

“And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.”

These men took this pledge seriously and it cost them greatly. When Samuel Adams signed the Declaration, he said,

“We have this day restored the Sovereign to whom all men ought to be obedient. He reigns in heaven and from the rising to the setting of the sun, let His kingdom come.”

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA!!!

Morning Friend!

Good-Morning-Coffee-PinkToday is: Wednesday July 2

 

Outside is: Already muggy :( Weird weather…for here. It’s hot and stormy with lightning. We are used to hot and dry.

 

I can smell:My coffee. Would not be a spectacular morning without it!! I have the windows open and can smell the heat starting to surround the house…its gonna be a steamy one!

 

In the oven for dinner: It’s too hot for dinner. Maybe tuna and toast? With a green salad on the side? Sounds light and won’t make the house sweaty!

 

What I have been thinking about:  Ugh. I am not happy with the way the world has been spinning lately. Marriage, vaccines, obamacare (little o on purpose), children being abducted into sex slavery, flag controversy, gun control, police hatered, judges/governors feeling they are gods…CRAZY! Friday was the worst. I was sad, then mad, then okay, then hurt, then confused, then irritated, then okay again, then broken hearted, then flabbergasted, then disappointed, back to okay again, then the circle would repeat.  This is so biblical, what is going on. I just wish more people would open their eyes and see!! Jesus is coming and coming SOON!! Things are backwards. What is right is now considered wrong in the world and all things wrong are celebrated. I am disgusted at the way things are happening around me. Yes, this has all been around for longer than I have been alive. I realize that. I also study history by choice and see that all the changes that are going on have habitually happened at the decline of a nation.  Not just right now, but  for centuries past this has been true. I do not think that will change here. I think we are on a downward spiral that is getting faster and faster to a great implosion. Biblically predicted over 2000 years ago and right on target. My friends, get right with the Lord ASAP!!

 

 

The project I am working on: Getting my son ready for his MAA training in a few days. Do not be confused with MMA. He will be wrestling I am sure, but he is working for his Master At Arms.  I know he was excited because so many cadets wanted this training and he got it!!  He is bummed because his best buds did not, so they won’t be training together this summer. It is still going to be good for him though, make new friends and all. This being said, why is it a project for me? I have new patches to sew on his uniform before he goes out there, paperwork to find and take with us, pick up new clothing/shoes needed for camp, haircut for him before he leaves… I only have a few more days!!!

 

Mood today: I am contemplative.  The world I live in is not the world I am living for.  My heart is repeating this over and over. Jesus use me to serve You. I know You are coming soon!!

 

What I am reading: The Bible.

 

School Stuff: Kiddos, off for a few weeks!! One week just because, one week for VBS, two weeks for camp then back to the whole school she-bang!

 

Picture to share: Panda Express Sweet Fire Chicken!!!

Have a blessed day my friend!
