We have been more than a little busy this summer. My DGD is in state with us, and it means many different activities to keep a 10 year old interested. No interest in nana's quilting, but maybe someday.
As for prayers, I am completely convinced the woes this country faces are directly related to their turning away from God (through their churches and personal commitments to God), and to the federal government (for all decisions, support, and guidance). The Isrealites learned from similarly. Their nation was broken and suffered God's unhappiness with their behavior as a nation. All because they forgot to keep God first and foremost.
My prayers a for those fighting the fires, and those subject to them. More importantly, I pray this nation turn to God before our government for guidance in all things. I feel if this nation is to remain a nation at all, viable, and productive, God needs to be a part of our daily life. As we celebrate this national holiday, I hope commitment to the Lord is somewhere more than a prayer, more than an hour a week devotion, in the heart, in the breath, in the love of this nation.
Ok. I'm off my soapbox, for now. I say this because I think it needs saying, and repeating, and saying some more. You are good to say you pray. It is amazing how many of the last two generations know nothing about God, Christ, and the history of our faith. Not knowing our national history does bear some responsibility to relevance, which is lacking. I suppose too many don't see the relevancy to the Lord.
Happy 4th. I look forward to other chats with you. I am an avid quilter, artist, nana, and military wife. Fiber arts are my current passion, and have been for many decades. If you're interested in seeing some of what I do, let me know, and I will pass the link over to you. I don't like to shove it down people's throats. I am going to your page to see your stuff.
