Act 1.8 +

Act 1.8

“…Ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you & ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem & in all Judaea & in Samaria & unto the uttermost part of the earth.”

“It is a miracle how God has so long preserved his book!

How great & glorious it is to have the Word of God!

– Martin Luther

HOME SCH – Grammar 2. Without being unkind (maybe part of it’s my fault) I don’t recall having a teacher: grade sch or high, who loved grammar. The best teachers are those who LOVE their subject. Much is to be said for a teacher loving students (home sch or classroom) but if he/she doesn’t love & therefore KNOW the subject, your child is the loser. Learn grammar. Then (with the Lord’s help) learn to teach it. You child deserves a solid, grammatical foundation. I didn’t get that. – 8/16/22  

“War is one of the greatest plagues that can afflict humanity; it destroys religion,

it destroys states, it destroys families. Any scourge, in fact is preferable to it.

– Martin Luther


Once they knew the joy,

Once they felt the thrill,

Of loving God with all the heart,

And resting in His will.

But another stole their joy,

(They thought they retained control)

Now good no longer satisfies,

And evil resides in their soul.

entertainment 2.  Dad, you – Yes, this is heavy – are responsible not only for a roof (& roasted potato “in the fireplace”) but you’re responsible for the Spiritual food (Bible reading/prayer) & what passes as “entertainment” under that roof. Don’t allow a TV. Don’t allow younger child (maybe no child until he can pay for his own) a phone on which he could watch TV/movies. Read to children – a natural for Home Sch – keep it up. You, Dad, as God helps, be the center of home enjoyment. – 8/16/22 

“Honors alter a man’s manners

and seldon for the better.”

– Martin Luther

God has no imagination. [Don’t for a second think this is a negative statement.] He doesn’t need one. Imagination is an interesting, profitable, human quality (I’m glad God gave me one). But, of course, the Lord is NOT human. He is so, So, SO superior to anything human that He can not be compared to us. Not in the least. All the imaginations of all the humans on earth (or already in heaven) collectively, can not equal the None-Imaginative Father Above. I love Him & love Him AS. HE. IS. – 8/17/22

Mat 6.14

“For if ye forgive men their trespasses,

your heavenly Father will also forgive you”

DEAR LIZ – Open letter. I’m sorry you took such a strong (& as far as I can see, wrong) stand against Donald Trump. You’re the loser for this. I ask you to get alone with God. Beg Jesus to help you forgive (whatever it is) between you & the former Pres. Please also ask the Lord to forgive YOU for being so negative. When you forgive & when you’re forgiven you’ll be happier, Liz. I didn’t expect to write you but I prayed for you weeks ago. Please do what’s right & Do It Soon. Good Bye. – eab, 8/17/22

“The hair is the finest ornament women have…

I like women to let their hair fall down their back…”
