Whine, Whine, Snivel, Snivel

Mike, Peggy, Randy, and Terry think we’re whining (see the comments on yesterday’s entry).  The weather is what the weather is, but if it weren’t for the weather we wouldn’t have a darned thing to whine about.  Besides, we never whine. 

Being that yesterday was Sunday, it was a day of worship.  We arrived at First Baptist Church in time for Sunday School and left after visiting with several folks after the worship service.  We made a stop at Hannaford’s for some veggies on our way home; they have much, much, much better veggies than Uncle Wally tends to keep on his shelves.  Then we stopped at Rite-Aide for some vitamins (they have a two for one price deal on Nature’s Bounty supplements).

By the time we got home, it was pouring so we did exactly like we said we were going to do – donned our sweats and “stood” inside doing some reading.  I finished the “Promised Land” and thoroughly enjoyed the book.  It’s amazing that Israel is the only nation in the history of the world to reemerge as a nation.

What is further interesting is to view this reemergence in line with Bible prophecies.  We Americans need to keep in mind God’s promises to His people.  He promised to return His people to the land given to their fathers and to reestablish Israel as a nation for all time.  We need to understand what God’s plans are and align ourselves with them.

I say this to point out that the United States has deviated from our past policies in support of Israel.  During the Clinton era, the President proposed a plan to divide the Promised Land in half in order to establish a Palestinian state.  President Bush backed off from dividing the land in half, but continued to push for a Palestinian state within the borders of the Promised Land.  President Obama has made some disparaging remarks about Israel, as well, while pressuring the Israeli’s to stop building settlements in the West Bank.  God is not looking favorably toward these efforts and we’ll definitely reap what we sow.

We cannot afford to stand in the way of God’s Plan for His people or their land.  He is establishing Jerusalem as the City of God and His plan will come to pass with or without our support.  Keep in mind that God promised to bless those who bless Israel and curse those who curse Israel – the choice is ours.  We need to keep an eye on what’s taking place in the Middle East and remain staunch allies in support of Israel.

Okay, enough of the book report.  Today I’ll mount the pontoons on the coach so we will be able to move about the state.  The webs are beginning to form between my toes as we speak and we’ll start looking at outboard motors later this week.  Yep, we’re following the old Boy Scouts’ moto – Be Prepared!!

Today is a w*rk day although I’m not sure how much I’ll get accomplished as it is still raining out.  I’ll pick up the trash and clean the restrooms, but there’s not much more that I can do.  If we get some breaks in the rain, then I’ll be able to tend to a couple of sites.  We’ll have to play it by ear.

Judy says she’s going to wear two long sleeved shirts to w*rk today.  These Mainers tend to keep the heat low and us Southerners tend to freeze our kiesters off so Miss Judy is taking action.  Being that she’ll be inside, she’ll get to w*rk a full day.

Well, that’s it for today.  Take Care Until Next Time - - - - -

  1. You left southern Alabama too soon. Down at the Plantation the temperatures are in the 70s during the day and about 60 at night. Oh, and no rain - only sunshine.
