“Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves. Show proper respect to everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, honor the emperor.”

“The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honor, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching. For Scripture says, ‘Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain,’ and ‘The worker deserves his wages.'”

James and Caleb are repairing the duck pen, which was tossed over a fence by violent winds.  (The ducks were not home at the time.)

“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when he appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.”

Monday evening, July 25  (7:54 PM)

Our softball team has just wrapped up another game.  We were able to come away with a 12-1 short-game (the game ran for six innings) victory.

Jude hammered a pair of home runs in the game, and almost added a third one.  I followed him in the batting order.  (He batted clean-up.)

During tonight’s game, Cathy managed to do a lot of walking.  She circled the field a number of times, and built up some steps on her FitBit device.

Storms swept through the area last night.  Flashes of lightning filled the sky (mostly to our north and east) durimg the overnight hours.  At one point the power went off, but it soon returned.  A few members of the family had interrupted nights of sleep.

The storms were part of a “cool” front that has pushed its way into our area.  The temperatures are expected to stay in the 80s throughout the coming week.  We have not seen a 100-degree reading (that I know of) this summer.

I am hoping that the atmosphere will soon lose its “haziness,” as we have to film scenes that feature sharply blue skies.

“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!”

“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.”

“We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all God’s people – the faith and love that spring from the hope stored up for you in heaven and about which you have already heard in the true message of the gospel that has come to you.”

Colossians 1:3-6a

“So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature. For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other, so that you do not do what you want. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law.”

I have been editing this cornfield scene for the Vine Valley movie.  In this clip, David is portraying a character in a flashback segment.

“What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? And if he finds it, I tell you the truth, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off. In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost.”

“Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming.”

1 Peter 1:13

“But they will have to give account to him who is ready to judge the living and the dead. For this is the reason the gospel was preached even to those who are now dead, so that they might be judged according to human standards in regard to the body, but live according to God in regard to the spirit.”

1 Peter 4:5-6
