    amen to all the above comments on this post…

    what a contrast – what a clear picture of the battle between good and evil
    Romans 8 is worth a ponder
    as i was reading it occurs to me that, as a whole, we humans think that we’re entitled to good times even tho we give our Creator not even the time of day, except to say how cruel He must be… i suspect that we way underestimate the role we humans have been assigned and the holy love of God

    God keep and Merry Christmas indeed – “Remember Christ our Savior was born on Christmas day,” eh?

    Great stuff, my friend.

    We are asked to do what is humanly impossible – love everybody. However, we have, dwelling within us, a Spirit that will give us the ability.

    I’d dare those who claim the mantle of Christianity to look outside of themselves to see the person they so heartily hate as a human who deep down merely wants to be loved.

    I could never do what I do, as a teacher in one of the most crime riddled cities in America, if I had not the desire for each kid to know that there are those who care for them.

  10. John 20:29 says:

    you’ll be in my prayers, Michael – in all our prayer, i’m sure
    God keep

    Much love to you dear friend.

    “Be not weary in well doing, for in due time ye shall reap, if we faint not”… Gal 6:9
    “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against wickedness in high places…” Eph 6:12
    “But take up the entire armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand”. Eph 6:13.

    Eph 3:20 Now to Him who is able to do infinitely more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.…

    I appreciate your endless labors…. Blessed Christ-mass, my dear.
