Bro S D Herron said something like, “I’ll do my confessing; you do yours.” Here’s mine – I’ve not changed basic beliefs on some issues for decades. But the “christian world” has moved left. As I witness shifts there’s a danger that I’ll become Bitter. I don’t want that. If my warning posts sound Bitter, I apologize (not for my position) but for any perceived harshness.  I want no Bitterness – not toward anyone.  “Lord, help me to warn with nothing but love in my heart. Amen.”

SON

Clear, blue skies over school house roofs,

Literary names and geometric proofs,

The notes of teachers and the student’s goofs,

All and more to remember, from inspiring September.

 

Corn, brown, tall with tasseled bloom at top,

Apples, ruby red, cider, cream of that crop,

Hickory, butter, walnuts suspended to drop,

These blessings I remember, from joyous October.

 

Chilly, gray days, bare structured, gray trees,

Sketched by Jack, dewy light panes freeze,

Thank God for bounty, and eat all you please.

Happiness to remember, from great November.

 

The previous three months spell the word SON.

I’m so glad God had and gave us One.

And when gifts and visiting are all done,

Him I would remember, December till December.

Why would you rent a horror movie to see at home? Or go to a horror movie in town? It won’t prepare you for heaven. I don’t want one reader to go to the Bad Place but if you do, it’ll far exceed the worst ideas hollywood conjures up. If a horror movie gets to be too much you now, can take your popcorn, & walk out. Friend there’s no exit door in hell.

Are all found on His printed page.

A younger lady recently showed a pic with a shorter-than-ever haircut. I suppose she’s pleased with her pic but I was saddened; made me feel sorry for her parents, Bro/Sis _ _ _ _ _ _ .  Ladies, once you remove an inch from God’s length, it must get easier to cut off more “glory” – witness the many with a mannish heads.

“If the Scriptures are not reliable in details how shall we reach general conclusions.”

FREE. We didn’t send out Bible Reading Charts this year. If you need 1-2, private message me for my address. When I receive your self-addressed, stamped, business-size envelope, God willing, I’ll send 1-2 to you free. Blessings in 2018.

 

Rev 1. 3

“Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and

keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.”
