The Love of God

Romans 5:5, "And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us."

Romans 8:39, "Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

2 Thessalonians 3:5, "And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ."

It's Darkest before Dawn

One moment it is dark, and the next moment, we see light. This is the dawning of the day.

And this could be the outcome of the Health Care bill tomorrow. The vote will come tomorrow afternoon. Right now, they say they have the votes to pass the bill. But the truth will not really be known until the actual vote comes up.

There have been many changes in the way they are going to vote. It has been said that they were going for the Reconciliation Bill first. Then they were going to vote on one bill to get enough to vote for the passage. That way they would not have to say they actually voted for the Health Care bill, but it would still be ‘considered’ voted on. I thought this was kind of hypocritical! Either you vote on the actual bill with a yea or nah, or you haven’t voted on it at all. You can’t say you’ve done something when, in fact, you haven’t.

Right now, the House is saying they have the votes. But, apparently they don’t, or the President would not be coming to Capital Hill to talk to the Democratic Caucus. He is still campaigning for ‘president’, trying to get this ‘so-called’ important bill passed so his presidency won’t be lost. I hate to tell him, but it doesn’t matter whether it is passed or not, there will be lots of losses for his people come November. I don’t think that the people of this country will forget that their preferences on this situation have been completely ignored.

Those of us who are Christians do need to keep praying that Congress will listen to their constituents back home and adhere to their wishes. We need to pray for the President to get wisdom and guidance for what this country really needs at this time, which is not the complete re-overhaul of our health care, but to fix the things that are wrong. We definitely do not need a complete government take over which is going to happen if this bill passes.

In Joshua, He tells us to be strong and very courageous.

Isaiah 41:10, "Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness."

The Lord is with us all the time, even unto the end of the world. Let’s keep praying that this bill does not pass. Right now, I am listening to Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House, talking to the Caucus in front of the President. You could not help but hear her say, “We will be making history”. And, I feel this is the only reason they have pushed to get this bill passed, to ‘show’ the world that they can do what nobody else has been able to do. And the reason it hasn’t been done is simply because the people do not want it. SO continue to PRAY!

NOTE: If this bill is so good for all of us, then why doesn't the Congress and the President add themselves to it?

Declaration of Independence

The Declaration of Independence, written in 1776, was the beginning of the independence of the original 13 colonies from Britain.

I found some great information on a website which is entitled The Declaration of Independence, 1776.

More information can be found at these sites:

There were 56 signers of this document, but they all did not sign on the same day. Only two, one of which was John Hancock, actually signed on July 4th. More signed in August and September. The last to sign the document was Thomas McKean of Delaware. It's been said he signed 5 years later, but it is also thought that perhaps the printer did not include his name when it went to press.
