a cheerful spirit
For the poor, every day brings trouble; for the happy
heart, life is a continual feast.
Proverbs 15:15 NLT
When I think of God, my heart is so full of joy that
the notes leap and dance as they leave my pen; and
since God has given me a cheerful heart, I serve Him
with a cheerful spirit.
Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809)
FATHER, help me to have a happy heart. Remove the
anxiety that sometimes weighs my heart down. Keep
my heart from growing proud. Instead, give me a pure
heart â€” a heart that is pleasing to you. Help me to
hide your Word in my heart so that I can walk in your
ways and enjoy life that is a continual feast.

Chapters: Esther 1-5
Message Title: Surrendering To God
Hello My Friend,
The Book of Esther is the seventeenth book of the Old Testament/Bible and contains ten chapters. The author of the book is Mordecai and it was originally written to the Jews who where in Persia (Babylon). The timeline for these events took place approximately 521 BC to 509 BC. The purpose of the book was to continue showing the history of the Jews in captivity and to recount the divine care God has for His people no matter where they are. What we are to learn from the book is that God uses all people to serve Him in some way, but prepares His people to be witnesses and blessings to others in similar circumstances. â€śFor Mordecai the Jew was next unto king Ahasuerus, and great among the Jews, and accepted of the multitude of his brethren, seeking the wealth of his people, and speaking peace to all his seed.â€ť - Esther 10:3.
Surrendering one's life to serve God can be challenging... (more)
Who is She?
So I'm a Whovian. Maybe middle-ground Whovian, if there's such a term. I haven't really caught up with all the episodes from the latest seasons since Matt Smith left since I've been busy reviewing and re-watching all the earlier episodes. This week I'll finally have the time to catch up to some of them and maybe write a review on Capaldi's debut episode. I apologize if this is all sounding familiar for you. Let's just chalk it up to a trip back in time in the Tardis, okay? Re-watching has allowed me to experience the highs and the lows again. But I just remembered exactly what I hate about replays (sometimes) - now I've been watching TV since before the Internet was born so they don't exactly disturb my sleep. Still, they're enough to make me grind my teeth while watching. It's not the badly written episodes, the fillers or "okay" episodes. It's the badly written characters. Every time. It's like someone pulled up Doctor Who on fan fiction.net. I mean, seriously. Why... (more)
The Common IllsIraq snapshot
Iraq snapshot Saturday, May 23, 2015. Chaos and violence continue, USA Today's editorial board lies for Barack Obama, an insider's account of the fall of Ramadi emerges, Haider al-Abadi is again refusing to allow Sunnis to enter Baghdad, why you shouldn't believe 'truthy' Mike Morrell, we again review the attacks on Jean Seberg, and so much more.
The lies about Iraq never end. USA Today's dim-witted editorial board fashioned a series of hogwash statements that they hope idiots will applaud -- idiots on my side (the left) because it's little more than self-stroking. And that the editorial board of any supposed objective paper thinks they can get away with lying demonstrates that the crisis in journalism which helped sell the Iraq War continues to this day. Case in point:
Obama's policies have indeed made things worse. But in arguing that he should have kept troops in Iraq longer, his critics skip over the inconvenient fact that he pulled out on a schedule negotiated by... (more)
