It has been a lovely day.
We started the morning watching Matthew Hagee preach a wonderful sermon EXCEPT for the twirling tornado behind him on the big screen. TO ME, it was VERY distracting. It is a fairly new thing they do at Cornerstone Church. It is a great tool for helping you remember the sermon. The first one I saw was the four horses. It was fine because the horses weren't flying around in circles the entire sermon.
Matthew talked about REBUILDING after destruction. Hence, the tornado. We Christians MUST do what we can to help rebuild America to the ONE NATION UNDER GOD that it was founded to be by our CHRISTIAN forefathers. God didn't tell the schools to teach our children the Ten Commandments. God told fathers and mothers to TRAIN UP THEIR CHILDREN.
We see every single day the results of Godless homes. Beautiful young people who can't read -- can't write -- can't think -- can't solve a simple problem -- and have NO IDEA who they were created by or WHY they were created at all.
Sad, sad, sad. I want to climb up on my rooftop and SCREAM to the world that I KNOW the answer to all the problems in our nation.
PEOPLE NEED THE LORD!!!
On the drive up here, we listened to Joel Osteen. He is Mr. Super-Positive and Upbeat as you probably know. He was talking about the supernatural protection we have under the wings of God.
He always has the best illustrations. He talked about a bird that had been burned to death in a fire. It was very strange, because the large bird's charred wings were completely outstretched flat on the ground. As whoever it was watched the bird, its wings started to move. Out from under the wings walked three baby birds -- alive and well. Joel said that no matter HOW HOT THE FIRE GETS, we are ALWAYS under the protection of our mighty God.
I know! Doesn't seem that way for all those Christians beheaded across the world. Doesn't seem that way for children abused and abandoned and worse. Some things, we just cannot understand right now. The Bible says we see through a glass darkly. Right now, it is very dark.
I'll be back soon. This is the FAST internet house. (For those of you who don't know, we have two homes because we have a business in two towns.) Not sure what project I will do next, but I sure will let you know.
