Hope everyone had a great day today, and got to spend some time with some loved ones! Angie and I didn't get our golf fix, as the tournament was cancelled due to a lingering thunderstorm that just wouldn't leave the area! Charlotte, Devo, Nicole, and T.J. and some more of his family all enjoyed last night at Pierce Field watching the fireworks, and listening to a "battle of the bands!" Today, Nicole and T.J. had another cookout to go to (you know how those R.I. Italians like to eat), and Charlotte did her favorite impression of "I have no where to go", which is her version of the poor me's! She expected to have a cookout with Nicole and T.J., but that didn't pan out, so she had to find some cookout to crash! So she and Devon are in Pt.Judith, at someone's cookout that she really doesn't know! This sounds like I'm making this up, but I'm not! The lady used to live in a house behind their's, and somehow she came over to see Devo and Charlotte yesterday, and as she was visiting, they got invited to a cookout! Fast forward to right now, when I just called them and they are somewhere in Pt.Judith, taking a walk in a very ritzy neighborhood! Whew! I'm confused and worn out! This chain of events since yesterday is simply mind boggling! I wouldn't put anything past Charlotte, especially when she puts her mind to something! She didn't want to stay home with Dev, without Nicole, so she found somewhere to go! And did it in a matter of minutes! I'm pretty sure it didn't matter where she went, as long as she went somewhere! I can't figure out why she didn't go with Nicole to T.J.'s, but I didn't dare ask! I can't take the drama like they can! Sometimes I think that they live for it! I guess they all had a great day because I never heard a word from any of them, since! Angie and I heard some awesome music at church tonight, and it really does feel good to sing some of our patriotic songs, like God Bless America and the National Anthem! Pastor Todd compared our responsibilities as Christians to those of a superhero, saying that God can empower us with "superhero" powers, only to be used to help others! What we can do, by spreading the Word to those who don't know Jesus, is equivalent to how Captain America saved all those that he did! It's a little hard to grasp without being there, but Todd made it quite clear that we all have the opportunity to be "superheroes" for the Lord! He will enable us, but we have to go out and make the "cold calls", on those who don't know Jesus! It's not only our responsibilities as Christians, but it is our duty! Tonight's superhero, Captain America had to be "talked into" the fact that he was given his powers for a much bigger purpose than that for which he was using them! Sound familiar to anyone? After that, Pastor Tom Mullins, the patriarch of Christ Fellowship, reminded us to listen to the voice of Jesus, and NOT the laws of the government! The land was founded on Christian values, and today the country has almost gone 180 degrees away from them! It's not too late, but time is of the essence!
14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my faceand turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
( 2 Chronicles 7:14)
WE ALL NEED TO HUMBLE OURSELVES AND PRAY AND SEEK HIS FACE, AND TURN FROM OUR WICKED WAYS, and then HE WILL FORGIVE OUR SIN, AND HEAL OUR LAND! Tom said that it's not too late, but we need to band together and pray and seek! The powers-to-be are moving away from the very values by which this great country was founded, and it's time we stand up and be counted! Goodnight and God bless! Dana
