We have Finally had 2 Good Rain Showers Lately, for which my Heart is So Thankful, and I Pray Rain will Fall in All our Drought-Stricken States.
Our Drought was So Long-Standing that we've Lost a Lot of Trees in my Area. :(
I'm not Sure if the Drought here is Broken, or if the Showers were a Short-Lived Reprieve.

I Join my Prayers with yours, Dear Geologist, that a Good Rain will Fall in your Area Soon,
And that the Drought will Break.

Hi, Yorkie! Sorry I've been so scarce lately. We've been working mega hours to meet a deadline - now going back to 40 per. I expect to on more regularly now.

Thanks very much for your many pings and continued prayers. they are much needed and appreciated!

I think we have all been down and out because of this
President and what he has done to us. My whole family
has been sooooo disappointed over what our Country is
being turned into by this ONE MAN...(so called man). I
sure have had the blues.

Hello Amy’s Place FRiends....

I’ll be gone a few days. Going to see my dear aunt in Wausau.

Thanks again for praying for my Aunt Mickey.

The evacuation map has moved even farther from her home today. Looks like she is safer than it’s been for a week.

Take care everyone and have a Happy Caturday!

He won’t be dancin’ like that in NOVEMBER!!! *big grin!*

Governors in many states are going on National News, saying they will not be enlisting in “ObamaCare”.

I hope that it is not going to turn out like it did in AZ, when Jan Brewer approved SB1070, saying the State will do what the Feds DON’T/WON’T! They basically told AZ to drop dead.

Ignorance & Innocence

June 30, 2012

Some people avoid going to the doctor because they don’t want to find out that anything is wrong with them. Some people avoid going to church for the same reason. But ignorance of our sickness doesn’t make us healthy, and ignorance of our sin doesn’t make us innocent

Roman law is considered to be the source of the idea that ignorance of the law excuses no one. But the concept originated much earlier. When God gave the law to Israel, He established that even unintentional sin required a sacrifice for forgiveness (Lev. 4; Ezek. 45:18-20).

In his letter to Christians living in Rome, the apostle Paul addressed the issue of ignorance or lack of understanding. When people were ignorant of God’s righteousness, they made up their own (Rom. 10:3). When we live according to our own standards of right and wrong, we might feel good about ourselves, but that doesn’t make us spiritually healthy. Only when we are measured by God’s standard of righteousness (Jesus) do we know the condition of our spiritual health.

None of us can achieve the righteousness of Christ, but thankfully we don’t have to. He shares His righteousness with us (5:21). The good news about finding out what’s wrong with us is that the Great Physician can make us well.

Great Physician, You know my heart. I bow
before You now and ask that You show me
any attitude or action that doesn’t please You.
Make me clean; make me well.
God is the Measurer and Healer of our spiritual health.

Read: Romans 5:12-21

As sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. —Romans 5:21
Bible in a Year:
Psalms 109-111

HAPPY CATURDAY TO AMY’S PLACE!

Macavity - The Mystery Cat

Macavity's a Mystery Cat: he's called the Hidden Paw--
For he's the master criminal who can defy the Law.
He's the bafflement of Scotland Yard, the Flying Squad's despair:
For when they reach the scene of crime--Macavity's not there!

Macavity, Macavity, there's no on like Macavity,
He's broken every human law, he breaks the law of gravity.
His powers of levitation would make a fakir stare,
And when you reach the scene of crime--Macavity's not there!
You may seek him in the basement, you may look up in the air-
- But I tell you once and once again, Macavity's not there!

Macavity's a ginger cat, he's very tall and thin;
You would know him if you saw him, for his eyes are sunken in.
His brow is deeply lined with thought, his head is highly doomed;
His coat is dusty from neglect, his whiskers are uncombed.
He sways his head from side to side, with movements like a snake;
And when you think he's half asleep, he's always wide awake.

Macavity, Macavity, there's no one like Macavity,
For he's a fiend in feline shape, a monster of depravity.
You may meet him in a by-street, you may see him in the square--
But when a crime's discovered, then Macavity's not there!

He's outwardly respectable. (They say he cheats at cards.)
And his footprints are not found in any file of Scotland Yard's.
And when the larder's looted, or the jewel-case is rifled,
Or when the milk is missing, or another Peke's been stifled,
Or the greenhouse glass is broken, and the trellis past repair--
Ay, there's the wonder of the thing! Macavity's not there!

And when the Foreign Office finds a Treaty's gone astray,
Or the Admiralty lose some plans and drawings by the way,
There may be a scap of paper in the hall or on the stair--
But it's useless of investigate--Macavity's not there!
And when the loss has been disclosed, the Secret Service say:
"It must have been Macavity!"--but he's a mile away.
You'll be sure to find him resting, or a-licking of his thumbs,
Or engaged in doing complicated long division sums.

Macavity, Macavity, there's no one like Macacity,
There never was a Cat of such deceitfulness and suavity.
He always has an alibit, or one or two to spare:
And whatever time the deed took place--
MACAVITY WASN'T THERE!
And they say that all the Cats whose wicked deeds are widely known
(I might mention Mungojerrie, I might mention Griddlebone)
Are nothing more than agents for the Cat who all the time
Just controls their operations: the Napoleon of Crime!

a poem by T. S. Eliot
