I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. John 14:6

  John 15:1-8

I feel like saying “Welcome back,” and yet it is I that have been away.  So, welcome back to me!  What a weekend!  What a conference Saturday!  I feel like I need to go away and digest all that I heard and get my life back in shape before I even try to begin to write to you.  But alas, that isn’t the way that I have been given!   

For some time now, and you may have picked up on it, I’ve felt like something was at odds with my posts.  I didn’t feel like I was getting my point across and I felt very much like I was becoming way too negative.  All these things are true.  I must first start with an apology.  What this blog started out as it no longer is.  My vision is to help other hurting women, not to use…

August 23 Scripture Selection: John 5:1-18

Food for Thought: John 5:17, 18

Today’s subject cannot be tackled by using only human intellect. It must be received by the renewed mind and in the spirit, as most truths of the Word are. But before entering into the subject, let us preface this by making it clear that there is one omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent God, and no one can take His place. However, there is a new and higher position for those of us who are born again and have become a new creature (or, in some translations, creation or species) in Christ than simple humans that do not have the Spirit of God living in them. Second Corinthians 5:16, 17 puts it like this: “Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the…

Open Thread And Tips and Whatnot ….. And Music!

There are a couple of groups who I could never tire of hearing. They are the Statler Brothers and Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin brothers.

This is kind of disappointing for me. I wanted to post several posts, today, but, I’m feeling puny and ill, today. So much so, I can’t keep a coherent thought for very long. Perhaps later tonight, if I perk up a bit.

Just A Coincidence

It is no doubt just a coincidence that a few weeks after Obama traded a bunch of terrorists for an army deserter, ISIS is demanding prisoner exchanges for hostages – and killing them if the ransom isn’t paid.

EPA on Mann’s “Fraud” Invective

Originally posted on Climate Audit:

Michael Mann, now feigning sensitivity towards Mark Steyn’s use of the word “fraudulent”, used identical language in the Climategate emails against critics without the slightest compunction. Mann’s hypocrisy has been widely noted.

Unpublicized thus far is a discussion by EPA, in which EPA concluded that Mann’s accusations of “scientific fraud” were within the scope of “acceptable and appropriate” scientific exchange and that it is “entirely acceptable and appropriate for scientists to express their opinions and challenge papers that they believe are scientifically flawed” in such terms.

The EPA’s finding appears to be inconsistent with Gavin Schmidt’s recent tweet arguing that such language is “per se defamatory”:

Saying that ppl [people] are frauds is per se defamatory. Goes beyond disagreement/error/dislike.

August 22 Scripture Selection: John 4:43-54

Food for Thought: John 4:48

Then Jesus said to him, ‘Unless you people see signs and wonders, you will by no means believe’ (vs. 48).” While this may seem like a rebuke to the people, it sounds more like a simple observation to me. God knows His creation very well. Signs and wonders are supernatural and separate the people that are just talk from the ones who have a real connection with the power of God. In fact, in many cultures, it is the only way to get the people’s attention.

I Corinthians 4:20 defines the kingdom of God in this way: “For the kingdom of God is not in word but in power.” Jesus meant it to be this way. That is why He said in John 14:12, “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes…

Is It Wong To Say You Can’t Keep You Wongs Straight To Asians?

HARRY REID TO ASIAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE: I’M HAVING TROUBLE ‘KEEPING MY WONGS STRAIGHT’

On Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) joked to the Las Vegas Asian Chamber of Commerce that he was having trouble “keeping my Wongs straight.”

Had a Republican said something similar, Democrats and the mainstream media would have played the race card, as they do even when it is unwarranted.

“I don’t think you’re smarter than anybody else, but you’ve convinced a lot of us you are,” Reid also told the audience. According to an America Rising video, Reid then told the audience as he was about to walk off the stage, “One problem that I’ve had today is keeping my Wongs straight.”

But, he said he was sorry …..

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid quickly apologized after video surfaced of him making Asian jokes to an Asian audience.

“My comments were in extremely…

Shock News!!!! Administration Which Hates Rule Of Law Made And Illegal Exchange With Bergdahl!!!!!

Originally posted on suyts space:

This is something everyone, with a little bit of reading and reading comprehension already knew.

GAO: Yes, Obama’s Taliban/Bergdahl Exchange Was Illegal

This isn’t necessarily “news,” per se, but it’s confirmation from a respected nonpartisan source. The ‘Taliban Five’ for Bergdahl trade, sans mandatory Congressional notification, was not legal. But the Obama White House executed it anyway, over the objections of the intelligence community:

President Obama’s decision to exchange captive Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl for five Guantanamo Bay detainees violated federal law, according to a legal opinion the Government Accountability Office sent to Congress Thursday. That’s because the administration failed to notify Congress at least 30 days before the transfer, as required under a law passed in February. The Pentagon notified Congress of the deal on May 31, the same day the transfer was made. And because Congress did not authorize spending for the exchange, it also…
