Isn't this an incredible picture? It is the Brussel's Flower Carpet. An event that takes place every two years. It is entirely made out of begonias!
There is so much beauty and creativity in our world. We are given this creativity and love of beauty from our creator, who made us in his image! What a gift!
The revival that started at Asbury University, which is a Methodist university, has spread to Lee, which is Pentacostal, and to Samford, which is Baptist. A real move of God knows no boundaries! I'm praying that it continues. These young Gen-Zers are finding God. An a good reminder to those of us who are older, God meets everyone where they are at. It may not look like the revival that swept the Colonies before the revolution, it may not look like Finney's revival, or any other revival. The key is to look at what God is doing!
Tim and I have been Christians for many years. He grew up as an MK and we were involved in training, and we served stateside for a while. We've grown a lot in the years since our time in the mission. We know there is not a formula for salvation. It is a work of the spirit. We know there are kids raised in Christian homes who are adults now and don't walk with the Lord even though their parents do.
In the last several months Tim and I became aware that we knew someone who was in the news.
Sam Brinton. We were in the training with his family. (for missions) He was a sweet, redheaded little guy. He was very smart. My heart hurts for him, and for his parents. He has made choices that have lead him away from truth and into hard things. Before we made the connection that this was the Sam Brinton we knew (he went by Samuel then) I was judgy about him. Now I realize that I can discern truth, but I must pray for people and realize that I don't know what their life has been. This doesn’t mean he should not be held accountable, and others as well when they are found to have committed crimes.
This is very disturbing. We should not put biological men in women's prisons.
This scandal gets deeper and deeper.
I saw that Janice Dean from Fox had shared this information on her social media,
Then the Bee Chief shared it and it's from NBC news.People were vilified for sharing this kind of information. They lost their social accounts, had their paypal's removed, etc. Plus, those who have immunity from the virus, don't have myocarditis, and are not among those 'dying suddenly.'
This Ohio train derailment has long lasting environmental repercussions'. The health of people and the land is going to be damaged by this.
I believe that the narrative of spy balloons during Trump's time is breaking down. John Ratcliffe was the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) and had a security briefing this week.It turns out that the shooter at MSU this week, used a handgun. He was not legally allowed to own ANY gun because he was a convicted felon. Gun laws obviously did not stop this criminal from getting a weapon.
I think we ought to have well trained staff, at every school, that can handle a gun. And then they should post big signs about it all around the school.
A judge has ruled that the John Does in the Epstein case must be revealed. That is supposed to happen soon.
The Epstein S*x trafficking has a lot of powerful people connected to it. That is how Ghislaine Maxwell got convicted of trafficking girls, but no clients were ever mentioned.
I think Ron DeSantis has made some good choices for Florida. I've been concerned by the Rinos - Paul Ryan, Jeb Bush, and others who are so openly courting him to run for President. They hate DJT. Make no mistake about it. A lot of political people realize that maga principles appeal to the most people. So they want to hijack the message and think they can have it without Trump.
This was so bizarre. Maga people hate Soros. They won't back a candidate Soros likes.
This is one way the left has controlled the narrative for so long.
I learned a few years ago to track prominent resignations. Last month it was New Zealand's Jacinda Ardern. Now it's Nicola Sturgeon. I didn't agree with either of these women's policies. Sturgeon resigned under pressure. She's been bad for Scotland.
The other prominent resignations this week have been the CEO of YouTube,
World Bank President David Malpass.
Generally if people have power, they don't easily give it up. There is a website that tracks resignations. resignation.info
Some resignations are just normal business resignations, people leaving one job going to another. Many, however, are significant. I find the timing of some resignations interesting.
Also this week Senator Diane Feinstein's office announced she was not going to run for re-election, but when asked Feinstein said she didn't know her office put that out! I've heard she has memory issues, but she's not been going along with the Dems plans for her to resign.
I hope you all have a good weekend. Keep praying, keep seeking truth, and keep seeking peace. Peace is a person. Jesus.
