A Man and His Truck

My brother, Josh, just bought a '79 Ford. It's the classic older truck. It smells great. It has that *old truck smell*. You know the smell I'm talking about. The one that reminds you of your dad or grandpa. This truck smells like that. This truck reminds me of the trucks my dad used to have when he did landscaping in CA. I love this truck. I want this truck. I cannot have this truck. This truck belongs to Josh. :)

I will just admire this truck and hope for the day I can have one too. :o)

The Fight to Keep Pro-Life Doctors

Be Heard!

I found the following information on my sister-in-law's blog. Please read and sign the petition!


"You have strong convictions, but President Obama says that doesn’t matter. He’s ready to rescind the Conscience Clause.

The Conscience Clause was implemented by former President George W. Bush to give physicians and nurses the choice to act according to their conscience — to not participate in abortion procedures if it conflicts with their personal convictions. If President Obama makes this damaging move, if he reverses the Conscience Clause, pro-life doctors and nurses will be forced into performing abortion procedures, despite their individual beliefs.

The announcement was made Friday, March 6, 2009. Since the official announcement was made, the public now has 30 days to file comments with the White House ... so we’ve got 30 days to make our voices heard at the White House.

Make a difference in this nation and stand for the freedom to act according to your conscience. Sign the online “Petition to Protect Pro-Life Doctors” below now. It will be delivered and filed at the White House no later than April 8, 2009. Get the word out now. BE HEARD!"

Psalm 139:14-16
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knows right well.
My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

If we destroy the children given to us by the Lord, where will our future be?

Psalm 145:3,4
Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.
One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.

Some Thoughts

1Chronicles 16:23,24
"Sing unto the LORD, all the earth; show forth from day to day his salvation. Declare his glory among the heathen; his marvelous works among all nations."

Praise and thanks to our gracious and merciful Lord that...

Psalm 3:8

1 Peter 1:7,8
"That the trying of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perishes, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory."

"...men ought always to pray, and not to faint." Luke 18:1
~This is our remedy for despair. What a blessing to be able to bring our requests before the infinite God and know that he will hear us when we call on him! (Psalm 3:4)

Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD. Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually. 1 Chronicles 16:11 (emphasis added)
~It is through the Lord alone that we can accomplish any good; that is why we must seek his face continually. (James 1:17)

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for that comes to God must believe that he is, and that he e is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. Hebrews 11:6
~Promised blessing to those who seek the Lord diligently. All the words of the Lord are faithful and true and he blesses in spite of our weaknesses. He gives blessing when cursing is deserved. Praise God for his mercy! (Hebrews 4:14-16)

Pray one for another. James 5:16
~To uphold one another in prayer to the Lord, Jesus Christ, is the greatest good anyone can do for another.

True Joy is Only Found in the Lord

Psalm 5: 11,12
But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.
For Thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favor wilt thou compass him as with a shield.
