We were on vacation when my cousin died. Hubby was reading the old newspapers and said “I think your cousin died”. It was a complete shock.

"Wear Red" Friday
You will soon see a lot of people wearing Red on Fridays. Here's why..... The Americans, who support our troops, are the silent majority. We are not "organized" to reflect who we are, or to reflect what our opinions are. Many Americans, like yourself, and all their friends, simply want to recognize that Americans support our troops. Our idea of showing our solidarity and support for our troops is starting Friday and continuing on each and every Friday, until this is over, that every red-blooded American who supports our young men and women, WEAR SOMETHING RED.

Word of mouth, press, TV -- let's see if we can make the United States, on any given Friday, a sea of red much like a home football game at a University. If every one of our memberships share this with other acquaintances, fellow workers, friends, and neighbors, I guarantee that it will not be long before the USA will be covered in RED - and make our troops know there are many people thinking of their well-being. You will feel better all day Friday when you wear Red! So let's get the word out and lead by example; wear RED on Fridays.

SUPPORT OUR TROOPS! WE LIVE IN THE LAND OF THE FREE, BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE. FOR US, THEIR BLOOD RUNS RED!! GOD BLESS AMERICA.

From an email on June 10th, 2006 - the author is unknown.

To: The Mayor; All
In Romans there is a scripture ... “there is none righteous, no not one”. Human nature depends largely on the thought processes of the individual. We all have a tendency to benefit our self first, many are generous, and truthful most of the time. Holding back the truth that does not project the desired image. So trust God absolutely, knowing “If God be for you, who can be against you?” Come to know God and to spend time in the Word. Desiring to please Him in our heart. Thank thee, Father. for providing us a way to know thee, in Jesus name, amen.

I know, Amy. Its supposed to get worse later this evening and tonight. Our local weather has been reporting a lot today, pre-emptying regular programs. I would like to run out before it gets too bad. I just got a shower and have to dress and maybe I can run out a few minutes. I won’t go if its dangerous because I’m a scardy-cat!

The other morning on Fox, they were talking about the women who had worn red for the Oscars and how pretty they all looked in red. They said it seemed like men loved women to wear red and guess what song they played during this segment....YES! The song we all love here at Amy’s. Did you happen to see that segment? I liked that very much.

Caricature God

March 3, 2012

Caricature artists set up their easels in public places and draw pictures of people who are willing to pay a modest price for a humorous image of themselves. Their drawings amuse us because they exaggerate one or more of our physical features in a way that is recognizable but funny.

Caricatures of God, on the other hand, are not funny. Exaggerating one of His attributes presents a distorted view that people easily dismiss. Like a caricature, a distorted view of God is not taken seriously. Those who see God portrayed only as an angry and demanding judge are easily lured away by someone who emphasizes mercy. Those who see God as a kindhearted grandfather will reject that image when they need justice. Those who see God as an intellectual idea rather than a living, loving being eventually find other ideas more appealing. Those who see God as a best friend often leave Him behind when they find human friends who are more to their liking.

God declares Himself to be merciful and gracious, but also just in punishing the guilty (Ex. 34:6-7).

As we put our faith into action, we need to avoid portraying God as having only our favorite attributes. We must worship all of God, not just what we like.

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—
Oh, Thou blessed Trinity:
One in essence, yet three persons—
Thou, our God, we worship Thee. —D. De Haan
All-powerful, merciful, wise, and just is the God in whom we trust.

Read: Exodus 34:1-9

The Lord is longsuffering and abundant in mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression; but He by no means clears the guilty. —Numbers 14:18
Bible in a Year:
Joshua 13-15

To: The Mayor; All
Once I read an idea about man ... which stated ‘man could not do an act he thought was wrong’.

This was an amazing idea, which means (I suppose) that in the mind of man, he is justified to feel the way he does, no matter the act ... he thinks/believes he is correct to behave the way he does. It is ideas like this that confuse many, Satan is always deceptive, and is everywhere working his ill ideas. We are to read the scriptures and learn of God and do what he commands. It is what pleases Him and God blesses those that love Him. We must be on guard for the wiles and lies of Satan. Our part is to read and learn with discernment. In this time there are many lies coming to us daily. Do not be lead astray, in Jesus name, amen.
