I awoke this morning, this was a bit of a surprise to me. I was somewhere else when I realised I was struggling to hold onto the ebbing dream that was preferable to the voice on the radio. That voice was bringing the real world to me when I wanted whatever the dream, whatever that was all about. I canny mind what it concerned but the voice droning on about England's football team made me reach for the button and head to a more sensible voice.
The dawn had come up like thunder, the sun was shining brightly and I took this picture as the clouds began to turn sunlight into night once again. I confess it was a wee bit lighter than the picture shows. Sun, sunlight, bright, not words heard about here very often. Hot sunshine yesterday, very warm and 'close' today. This canny go on, and it won't.
I have spent the day in WW2. I had to reread, rewrite, rethink, and rewrite again and again and it is still not
So I have struggled through to 1942, not exactly finished with the previous years either, and now the bloody Yanks are pouring into the country! "Got any gum chum" will be the cry for several years and not just from children! Airfields are getting erected and soon dirty big aircraft will be either noisily heading for the east or on occasion failing to take off and crashing to earth. A common enough happening but not spoken off during wartime. The German Messerschmidt 109 killed more men in training than were ever lost in action.
Nothing else has been done because of this. I must have it ready by last Tuesday so I have not bothered with hoovering, cleaning or washing. I think people might be beginning to notice. There again the football does not begin to start until next week so I have got some time before then. I might even finish this....
The 'land of the free' has decided by 5 to 4 that gay marriage is acceptable in law. Quite how that works, nine unelected people deciding for a nation in which leadership is stopped by President or Congress vetoing one another fails to impress me. Something clearly wrong, something that goes against common sense as well as the will of the God who created us being declared acceptable reveals the depth to which the west has sunk.
There is no equality here, marriage is only between one man and one woman committed for life, like it or not, and we know how hard that can be. Pretending something is acceptable when it is not will only hurt those involved. Truth sets us free, it is far from easy, but truth reaches the centre of our being and obeying truth brings life. Jesus came to set us free from that which hinders life. These decisions obstruct this.
The next step will be the attack on churches that rightly refuse. The power of the gay mob has been quiet recently but soon it will dominate and persecute openly the Christian church. Satanic inspired hate will fill the hearts of many, understanding dimmed and open persecution is round the corner.
Sadly, so is judgement from a higher court.
