Returning to work now after an early-morning workout. I really didn’t want to go, feeling tired and all that, but now I’m so grateful I pushed through and did it.

“Better a poor man whose walk is blameless than a rich man whose ways are perverse.”

Proverbs 28:6

“For Jesus had known from the beginning which of them did not believe and who would betray him. He went on to say, ‘This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless the Father has enabled him.’ From this time many of his disciples turned back and no longer followed him. ‘You do not want to leave too, do you?’ Jesus asked the Twelve. Simon Peter answered him, ‘Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. We believe and know that you are the Holy One of God.’”

“Aware that his disciples were grumbling about this, Jesus said to them, ‘Does this offend you? What if you see the Son of Man ascend to where he was before! The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life. Yet there are some of you who do not believe.’”

John 6:60-64a

A note of hope:

In this news video (beginning at about the 2:30 mark), Fox News personality Ted Williams uses such words as “marriage” and “healing” to describe the relationship between Ferguson, Missouri, police authorities and protest leaders.


On another topic:

These black leaders respect our country’s Constitution, and do not like the imperial way in which the recent amnesty decree was forced upon the American people.

Since we’ve been playing Smash Bros. so much lately, I thought it’d be worthwhile to replace the old joysticks with these new ones we bought online. I guess it’s the way the controller was designed, but the N64 joysticks are notorious for wearing out over time.

I wish we had more guys like Billy Graham speaking out! What a great man and what a life he has led.

A group of the guys are out at the movie theater seeing “Interstellar.” Some of them had just seen “Gravity” for the first time, so we’ve been comparing them with each other.

Cathy and I have been reading the electronically-scanned version of an 1876 book.  Entitled A Narrative of the Great Revival Which Prevailed in the Southern Armies, it is one of the most powerful and beautiful Civil War volumes that I have ever encountered.

“Jesus said to them, ‘I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink.’”

“But Moses said, ‘Here I am among six hundred thousand men on foot, and you say, “I will give them meat to eat for a whole month!” Would they have enough if flocks and herds were slaughtered for them? Would they have enough if all the fish in the sea were caught for them?’ The Lord answered Moses, ‘Is the Lord’s arm too short? You will now see whether or not what I say will come true for you.’”

Numbers 11:21-23
