True Words

In Politics on September 24, 2008 at 2:50 pm

My friend, Dr. David Black has some very important words for us all to hear.  I will paste them below.  Be sure to check out his blog when you have a chance.

The issue, politically speaking, is what is best for America — and what is most constitutional. I believe that big issues are at stake in our nation — issues that I’m afraid are neither perceived nor understood by many Americans, including certain candidates for public office. America exacts its will by force and thereby denies the validity of the democratic principles on which our government and our way of life depend. Our civil liberties and the economic order on which our nation rests are in great peril, but we can still gain a great objective — not by hate and brutality and bloodshed, not by a quickening nationalistic feeling and anti-Muslim fervor, all in the name of Americanism — but by tolerance and civil liberty. Politically speaking, I reiterate my hope that Americans will see fit to insist that our government be a government of laws. And spiritually speaking, I reiterate my hope that all true Jesus-followers, whether Republican or Democrat or neither, will seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and, through scandalous love, show a lost world what that kingdom really looks like.

Mondays verse for the week…

“Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will done for them by My Father in heaven.  For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”

Jesus as quoted my Matthew in his account.  Chapter 18, verses 19-20

A word about Ward

In Uncategorized on September 15, 2008 at 6:32 pm

We woke up this morning around 2:30 and thought Fran to be in labor.  She awoke with sharp contractions with a regularity of every 5 minutes.  After calling our midwife we made the trip down to Lenoir and there found out that Fran had dialated to 1 centimeter which was a change from her last doctor visit.  Progress!!  Anyways, after resting for a little and getting readings on the baby monitor the nurses came in and checked Fran again at around 9:00 AM.  To our disappointment we found out that she had not progressed anymore and so back up the mountain we came, to which we find ourselves in our current holding pattern.  Fran is still experiencing regular contractions but not very painful ones, so it’s just hurry up and wait.  I will, of course, keep all information coming.
