Thought For the Day

The Fulfillment of the Law

17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. 19 Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven.

Thought For the Day

“You are my witnesses,” declares the LORD,“and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me. I, even I, am the LORD, 11 and apart from me there is no savior. I have revealed and saved and proclaimed—12 I, and not some foreign god among you. You are my witnesses,” declares the LORD, “that I am God. Yes, and from ancient days I am he. 13 No one can deliver out of my hand. When I act, who can reverse it?” Isaiah 43

“Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit, and intelligence of the citizens. They fail when the wise are banished from the public councils because they dare to be honest, and the profligate are rewarded, because they flatter the people in order to betray them.” Joseph Story 1851

A reminder of 9/11/2001 from Zilla! God bless!

This is my personal story of September 11, 2001 and what happened after – as I experienced it 60 miles away from Ground Zero…

 

My father’s grandparents, (both sets) Irish Catholics, somehow managed to survive the Famine in Ireland which killed so many. They came to America to escape the oppression in Ireland and landed in New York City. It would be a hundred years before anyone in that family line ever moved out of the City to other places.

My mother is from a tiny country called Grenada. She saw there were few opportunities for a young lady there, so she packed her bags and came to find the “American Dream” in New York City. She found it. She also found my father and it was love at first sight. They met at the famous Rainbow Room in NYC and were married a few months later.

They started…

Thought For the Day

 For Christ did not enter a sanctuary made with human hands that was only a copy of the true one; he entered heaven itself, now to appear for us in God’s presence. Nor did he enter heaven to offer himself again and again, the way the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood that is not his own. Otherwise Christ would have had to suffer many times since the creation of the world. But he has appeared once for all at the culmination of the ages to do away with sin by the sacrifice of himself. Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him. – Hebrews 9:24-28 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Hebrews9:24-28&version=NIV

Asking for your help!

We have been able to manage most of the expense of my cancer up till now but bills are still coming in and we just learned that our insurance will not pay for the drugs used in my chemotherapy! This expense alone is over four thousand dollars. With all these expenses we have set up a fund raising effort. If you can spare a little money and would be interested in donating here is the link:Patricia’s Cancer Fund http://gfwd.at/W1QuPF
I can’t tell you how much it will be appreciated and I understand how difficult it is,especially with the economy so bad. If you can not donate, please keep me in your prayers! I have faith that whatever the outcome, God will still be there and that is truly what is important! God bless you and I love you all! Patricia aka loopyloo


A Higher Plane

There is a battle going on,but contrary to the idea that this is a battle for the heart and mind of a country, it is instead a battle for the very souls of those who reside in it who claim the mantle of Christianity! What I am talking about is the children who are being used to divide a people. This is not just about country, nor is it even just about borders, immigration, or children!
These children are being used, some in the most vile ways. They are being raped, used to traffic drugs, used as distractions to let evil in, and being used to force a political viewpoint on those who have differing opinions. The way they are being used is evil, but that is not the most important thing. The most important thing is how we who profess to follow Christ react.
So many want to stop the madness, and that is understandable. They want to stop the influx and return the children to where they came from. But let me ask you this, if we become a wall and harden our hearts, who are we serving? If we turn the very vulnerable away, whose arms are we sending them into?
Is this love? This is not a matter of race, nor a matter of right or left political viewpoint! This is a battle on a higher plane! This is evil attempting to drive a wedge into the heart of those who profess to follow Christ. If we stand with shields in front of us repelling children, we are falling prey to the very evil we profess to abhor.
I am not saying that we should not stop those who are using this crisis and manipulating the laws of this country, but this is two very different problems. To think otherwise is to close your eyes.

 “For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen”. – Ephesians 3:14-21 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ephesians3:14-21&version=KJV
