What a beautiful day, with fog and light snow !
Not only did I hurt my back.... pulled a muscle in my lower back. And then latter misstep-ed and fell down out side and skinned my poor little hands and knees. The main reason I am telling you all about this is because the bible tells us that " Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow....." ----Ecclesiastes 4: 9 and 10. And it just so happened that 2 strong gentlemen helped me get back up on my feet. I thanked them more than once.
Some folks tell me to just live alone, enjoy my retirement years and have fun. But from all my studies in the Bible and other books, 'Man was not meant to live alone.' Just read Genesis Chapters, 1,2,3, etc. Genesis, Chapter 2, verse 18, says: "And the Lord God said, it is not good that the man should be alone, I will make him an help meet for him." [now... down at the bottom in footnotes in my nice Bible, it has some help here for us: help means: a helper. And Meet, means a suitable, proper, fitting.] Visit: biblefortoday.org [to get the DEFINED KJV Bible ! What a great tool that helps you learn the bible better !!] And I am sure that this rubs many women and feminists the wrong way ! ! Now, either we take the WHOLE, ENTIRE WORD OF GOD TO BE FAITHFUL AND TRUE... or not !! Friends, you can't have it both ways! Satan wants to put huge blocks in the way of good, successful, marriages, and break them up !
I can tell you all one thing for sure.... if the Bible says that the ONLY grounds for divorce is ADULTERY, that is exactly what it means, no matter who much some people try to twist, turn, squeeze, manipulate, truncate it ! Oh, I know how many woman [and men] love to embellish the facts, just like the movies of soap operas, to gain sympathy from their friends, and many 'churches' now days just go along with: "Anything Goes," now days. But the Bible fact remains. If this subject matter offends or 'stings' some people's delicate ways or notions, sorry. More often than not, many divorces now days are just an expedient method of getting rid of an "inconvenience," that is to say, the Bible ! Jeremiah said that the "heart is treacherous ..... who can know it."
Yes, feelings are involved, and the hurt is great. And no matter how many times a man makes the same mistake, it still hurts, plus all the misused funds, cash, $$$, gifts and broken promises. Romans 12: 19, says, "Vengeance is mine, I will repay, saith the Lord." If I am really the Christian that I say I am, The Lord will take care of everything.
But, I may be shifting my sails to travel in a Southern fashion, and may be looking for other hunting and fishing spots soon. Time to pray again for guidance and direction. IMHO, there is not much holding me up here any longer.... except that I am paying down my debt faster with low over head right now, pumping iron, getting back into shape.... slowly and resting up.
And please, also pray for my friend, Annie, who just had knee surgery today, and now on the mend. ]
Warm Regards, and Bear Hugs,
