I find myself having very strong and deep concern for America. Presently, one could argue that America stands as the wealthiest, more affluent, most powerful nation in the world. We have more disposable income than some people in the world have for living income.
We experience no famine, have plenty of shelter, and do not live in fear of our lives for practicing our religion …

Beware of False Prophets by Ann- Louise Gremminger
Since Jesus Himself gace this warning, we need to take it very seriously. Just our military must be fully aware of the tactics of the enemy; we in the Lord’s army must be educated in regard the tactics of the enemy of our souls.

Legitimate freedom is normally purchased by those who have experienced adversity and felt the sting tyranny or religious persecution.
Is It Too Hard To Be A Christian ? by Beverly Rich
Is it too hard to be a Christian? I hear this excuse from so many people. So I am asking you today if you have ever felt this way? I honestly can say that I felt this way when I first became a Christian.

As I turned onto the street, I caught the first light, I did not want to sit through another light. I wanted to get home and put my groceries away.

November 13, 2005 was my husband Bill’s hospice memorial night where we were told to come foreward to a platform and light a candle in his memory when they called out his name. For two and a half hours they called the names of the deceased and it was very sad.
