“When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet,

stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

“Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:”

Mat 24.15-16

 God CAN save your “X.”  And, perhaps as importantly, He can help you to FORGIVE him/her – – –

SO forgive that you BOTH can go to heaven

with love (not sexual, but Christian love) for each other!  (OR do you not want your “X” in heaven?)

I passed a field the other day,

That in summer’s past

Had always been in hay.

And there I saw it laid open wide

With some gashes that

A plow put in its side.


Brown, yes, reddish brown,

Was the ground,

That the implement of man

Had turned down.

Row after row of little hills,

With valleys and daises,

Thrown in for frills.


Now – the farmer hadn’t planned

To leave those flowers.

As witnesses of nature, brittle towers,

But nature’s not as weak

As may suppose.

And the strongest things

She has she always grows.
