Our World, Our Decisions, ISIS

I consider myself a Christian, and yet because I am human, I get scared and fear for our country with all that is happening in it.

Ebola, ISIS, Terrorists, and Hancock, NY. I don’t usually post news I am not sure of when it comes my way on Facebook, but I decided I would.

As a Christian; are my only choices sharing this or praying? Am I supposed to give it to God and not worry anymore? I know that I can not control the world. I can not make decisions and expect the world to follow; but hey, how can I sit back and just watch, doing nothing?

My other question is, why did Fox news leave Dish? Is there more to the story than we know? Fox news to me was always good. If I wanted to know the facts I would just tune in to this station, and now they are gone.

Well this is Food for Thought, and I am sharing. Whether you watch or read or ignore, I still want to share.








A Beautiful Message For Each of Us Who Listen to it

I know that I am more emotional than some people. Tears fall easily for me. Memories are never farther away than yesterday. I have lost many loved ones in my life. I have been a way from my sons I love and their kids because of my own health problems.

I try so hard every day to be thankful that I am allowed one more chance to wake-up, to see the clouds, listen to the birds, and to do what God wishes me to do.

I was listening to some U-Tube songs and this song hit me deep in the heart, so I had no choice but to share its beauty with you.


Sunday Morning

After being here for a few months in Russellville, Kentucky; I decided to take the plunge and go to church. I went to a church I had been recommended to by different people in the vicinity. It was called the Second Baptist Church.


401 E 2nd St,
Russellville, KY 42276

Near the intersection of E 2nd St and N Spring St

Church began at 11am with Sunday School prior. It is a pretty church. A variety of different ages I saw. Several people came up to me and said hello and shook my hand, asking my name.

That made me feel good right off the bat. I tried going to a church with Al back in Indiana for five or six weeks. No one there ever introduced themselves to us and I could not return.

I don’t remember what the minister’s name was but he was an older gentleman and his sermon was very easy to understand. There were several songs sung and I recognized most of the music.

One song really got to me with the words. I searched and searched on the internet and U-Tube for the right upbeat of the song I heard but couldn’t. I found this one I will  put on here. It is a little slower  paced but the words are the same.

The sermon today was on Repentance. I had heard last night on Dr. Charles Stanley the same topic. Today, explained it a little better. I never realized how very, very important repenting is. I learned it is not enough to be a Christian, or even say we are sorry for our sins. We must repent to finalize our sins.

Question: “What is repentance and is it necessary for salvation?”

Answer: Many understand the term repentance to mean “turning from sin.” This is not the biblical definition of repentance. In the Bible, the word repent means “to change one’s mind.” The Bible also tells us that true repentance will result in a change of actions (Luke 3:8-14; Acts 3:19). Acts 26:20 declares, “I preached that they should repent and turn to God and prove their repentance by their deeds.” The full biblical definition of repentance is a change of mind that results in a change of action.
