Local Target Offers Ray of Hope for Salvation Army

A local Target store has received over 100 letters in protest of the
corporate decision to not allow the Salvation Army to solicit
contributions in front of their store. The local managers have said to
staff that if a kettle shows up out front of the store they will not be
asked to leave. What should the Army's response be to this information?
What would the Christian response be, seeing how it might be a costly
move by the managers here.

Our Fallen Marines

This article from The American Thinker will tug and or tear your heart strings. It is so easy to hear the numbers as the author says and grow numb. May God prevent us from ever growing numb to the personal nature of war and its great cost. Our pastor Billy Steen reminded us this past Sunday that freedom is not free. This is another sobering reminder.

Do everything as unto the Lord

Thanksgiving Day I was raking the leaves in my front yard for the annual Thanksgiving Day croquet match. Since we have become serious about this, this was the 3rd Annual Harris Thanksgiving Day Croquet Tournament. My son, my only son, my son whom I love, Jacob won for the second year in a row. My son-in-law, David Lemont, says one more year and Jacob will be able to call it a dynasty. Jake will not win next year, take that to the bank!

I digress from my thoughts while raking. The skies were threatening rain, and it looked like we might not be able to get the game in and I was in a hurry, then this verse came to mind.
"Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than, for men" Col 3:23

Now don't get me wrong, I don't think the Lord would have minded a few leaves on the court. He would certainly have wanted us to enjoy the game together. A good time of fellowship and good humor are not to be sacrificed to the perfection of a croquet court. It did start me thinking though about why so often the things we do are not done with an eye towards whom we are doing them for. God says we should do them as if we were doing them for Him. In reality, most of the time, I fear we do our work for ourselves. Even then it can be pretty shabby. Why is that?

The thing that made me hurry through the leave raking was poor use of my time. I was in a hurry because I didn't start sooner. I had tried to squeeze too much into too little time. I had not managed my time very well. There wasn't time to do what I had to do, "as for the Lord." Oh there would have been time; it wasn't that every minute of Thursday had been consumed in fruitful activities. I just spent it on other things.

What would happen if we planned our lives around this verse, and what would it take? Certainly the quality of our work would go up by leaps and bounds. I'm equally certain as the quality went up, the quantity would go down. In a culture where more is better, I wonder how that would go over.

just plodding along...

Air Force cracks down on Christian 'coercion'

Can a constitutional amendment to remove the free exercise of the Christian faith be far behind?WorldNetDaily: Air Force cracks down on Christian 'coercion' I'm afraid not. If I don't see it, my children probably will, and my graqndchildren certainly will. Gird up yourselves and stand firm! Greater is He that is within us, than he that is within the world.

Another Chance

God has granted the United States another chance to repent from is
head-long rush to judgment. The leadership of the political party that
has been hijacked by all that is evil in the world, has been rejected by
the majority of Americans. We stood at the brink, and God in His
kindness, has given what is right, another chance. By that I don't mean
that Bush and his party is perfect, far from it. He has made mistakes.
Hopefully he grows and learns from them.

As heard on the Dennis Prager show this evening, this is a Holy Day!
Celebrate with dignity!
