Out of Sight Insides

You’re lazy! You’re too slow! You’re not smart enough! You’re not as cute as ______! You’re too fat! I would never do that! Why would you want to do that?
You don’t need that! Can’t you get it right?

Ben doesn’t relate to children, but he’s devastated when they’re absent for Easter.

Grandma peels the potatoes. Mom bakes the brownies. Dad sets a timer for the ham bake. Hey, somebody’s phone is ringing. Oh, sweet, it’s Ben’s brother.
As it turns out, the youngest of his boys has acquired strep throat. Discussions occur. It’s deemed more prudent to nix the boys from the equasion due
to decreased immune systems. You should see Ben’s face!

Anger

We often respond in anger to people and situations that we feel are degrading, unjust, or immoral. Have you ever wondered why? It is likely that your character
feels threatened. Should it? No, because you are the one who developed it and therefore you can change it anytime you want to.

If we feel that someone is degrading us we shouldn’t. God created us all as equals. Since there is no one better than you they don’t have the power to
degrade you unless you give it to them. If you did give it to them then take it away from them.

Honoring Parents

What does it mean to honor your parents?

To honor means to show respect. Verses such as Exodus 20:12; Deuteronomy 5:15; Matthew 19:19; and Luke 18:20 paint a picture of how important it is to
honor ones parents.

Does that apply to abusive parents as well? Unfortunately, the bible doesn’t make any exceptions. However, parents are instructed not to provoke (push/entice)
their children to anger. Instead they are to teach and guide their children (Ephesians 6:4).

Letting Satan win

So I wake up this morning around 11:15 AM to find that some other van has hit some other crowd in some other city. Today, it happens to be Barcelona, Spain.
It’s sad. It’s deplorable. It’s demonic. Vehicles are meant to be on the road, not in the crowd. As a blind person, vehicles on the road can be scary enough
when crossing streets. God for bid I be in a crowd and all the sudden there’s a big truck or a van there. But, alas, I digress.

Alphabet soup

The Atlantic hurricane season for 2017 is upon us, and the solar minimum has brought about some of the most destructive storms in recent memory. It started
in eastern Texas and into Louisiana with Harvey. Millions of dollars will be needed for the cleanup efforts. Hurricane Irma has come from a punishing couple
of days in the Caribbean Sea, and now she’s headed onto the Florida peninsula. On her heals, however, are two hurricanes. José is already considered a
category 4 hurricane. Katia is a bit further to the southwest, and the author isn’t sure of her current status.

The Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf

I’ll huff, and I’ll puff, and I’ll blow your planet down!

Obviously, that’s not the original big bad wolf quote from the story of the three little pigs. I lament to tell you, however, that there’s a little bad
wolf up in North Korea whose huffing and puffing threatens his nation, his people and the world.

Yes, the Cross has the Final Word

When you think of the Cross, what are some of the things that come to your mind?

I think about all the blessings which God has given me in the past. I also think of Jesus having given up his life to save us from sin.

I have heard the following, “At The Cross, Love Ran Red.” God was willing to give up his one and Only Son, so that we could have everlasting Life with
him in Heaven for all time.

Astrology and Christianity: look for the signs in the heavens

Many Christians shy away from things like astrology, psychic abilities and others. There are theories as to why this is. Some attribute it to the fall
of Rome. Others say that the Scriptures have been changed. This is not the authors intent.

Ignite your Child's love for Jesus

Faith is incredible — it doubles the already infinite possibilities offered to humanity. It allows one to become replenished with strength and principle
when needed; enabling him to continuously rise up to challenges regardless of the probability of defeat and loss. More importantly, it holds magnificent
prominence in the criteria he uses to determine his life’s decisions and actions. Truly, its influence is undeniably wonderful.
