End of Summer Update

I can't believe how quickly the summer has come and gone, at least for me. Karen still awaits news about when she can get her surgery done on her shoulder. Sadly, she continues to suffer as the Worker's Compensation insurance company seems to keep evading their responsibility in this matter (or so it seems to me). We are hoping for a resolution to this soon, as it seems to be moving in that direction. However, she is determined that the outcome be fair and has been patiently waiting for that to come about.

My boss seems to be making some improvement in his condition, as they are trying some sort of experimental drug [instead of chemo] to treat him. I sure hope he makes some progress and I refuse to "write him off" as people so often do with seriously ill and seemingly hopeless folks in similar circumstances.

I have gone through some struggles with my faith in recent months and am happy to report that I have recommitted myself to following my Lord. Nothing compares to the feeling of peace and sense of security that only Jesus can give. Nothing. If you don't know Him, please take the time to get acquainted.

Slavery

Jesus responded, “I assure you: Everyone who commits sin is a slave of sin. -John 8:34 (HCSB)

All too often, Christians may feel constrained by their faith and what they know to be the expectations of their Heavenly Father. Sometimes, in certain churches, the list of "don'ts" may seem longer than the ancient laws of Israel. Occasionally 'religious' people will sadly get caught up in that sort of thing. That can be a turn-off for many people and a valuable asset to the enemy, who wants you to feel bound by law and a slave to some sort of religious creed. The God I know and love is a God of freedom. I am freer as a slave to Christ than I ever was as a slave to sin. How about you? Are you free in Christ or bound by sin?

Hate Speech

The amount of vitriol directed at President Trump seems to be unprecedented. At least, that is what those on the right seem to think. Of course, I remember plenty of criticism and hate speech hurled at President Obama during his time in office, as well. I don't think I really need to mention President George W. Bush, do I?

There has never been (in my lifetime) such a level of animosity between opposing viewpoints as I see in today's America. Democrats hurl murderous accusations against the Republicans for their healthcare proposals and those of a conservative view sling accusations of incompetence and hypocrisy back at them. Of course, either side is generally pretty good at documenting their accusations with freshly spun 'facts.'

No matter where you fit into the political spectrum, it is important to note that such contention is counter-productive. Whenever people react at the behest of their emotions, clear-headed and rational decisions are nowhere to be found. Moreo…

Treason or Patriotism?

Many years ago, the Democrats couldn't wait to get all of the facts surrounding Watergate out in the public eye. The Washington Post has been celebrated as a bastion of the free press recently in a movie (which we have yet to see, but plan to).


Now, the idea of releasing a memo that may indicate wrong-doing on the part of the FBI and DOJ is hailed as treasonous by some who would prefer the secrets remain secrets. I have seen or heard of nothing in the recently released memo that would appear to compromise national security -- have you?
