Woe to the rebellious children, saith the LORD,

that take counsel, but not of me; and

that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit,

that they may add sin to sin:  Isa 30.1

Why do you BELIEVE “A” “B” or “Z”?

Because the world accepts IT?

Because preachers preach IT?

OR because the Bible teaches IT?

Downward from heaven in uneven flow

Came tiny flecks of wandering snow

Spasmodic, they skipped as if in a tease,

For Heaven can do all things with ease.

Ida Lilliard Reed was born 11/30/1865, near Ar­den, in Bar­bour Co., West Virginia.  She is said to have writ­ten some 2,000 hymns in her life­time.  In 1939, the Amer­i­can So­ci­e­ty of Com­pos­ers, Au­thors and Pub­lish­ers re­cog­nized her “sub­stan­tial con­tri­bu­tion to Amer­i­can mu­sic” by award­ing her a small “week­ly bo­nus.”  She July 8, 1951, at her home town of Ar­den.  She is primarily remembered today for her 1896 song “I Belong to the King.”


I belong to the King; I’m a child of His love,

I shall dwell in His palace so fair,

For He tells of its bliss in yon heaven above,

And His children in splendor shall share.


I belong to the King; I’m a child of His love,

And he never forsaketh His own.

He will call me some day to His palace above;

I shall dwell by His glorified throne.

We have a mountain in front of us *

Four thousand dollars high.

But thou dost own every fleck of gold,

Beneath the sunset sky.


We have a problem in front of us

Four thousand dollars long.

But every creature on the globe,

To You, it doth belong.


We have a mountain in front of us

Four thousand dollars wide.

But You have promised to guide us

And be ever at our side.

Clive Staples “C. S.” Lewis was born 11/29/1898 at Belfast, Ireland.  Few modern (a relative term J) thinkers (another relative term L) have impacted our day more.  Atheist turned Church of England, his fictional and non-fictional works lead toward Christian thought.  A university don, he was at Oxford (1924-54) and Cambridge (1954-63).  His Screwtape Letters are good (must think backward!) as are Miracles (1947) and Mere Christianity (1952).  His allegorical The Chronicles of Narnia (1950-1956) is considered a classic in children’s literature.  This theologian’s death (11/22/1963) was overshadowed by the murder of JFK that same day.

Lewis Quotes:

I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.

We all want progress, but if you’re on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

A man can no more diminish God’s glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, ‘darkness’ on the walls of his cell.

“If I discover within myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world”
