Today many people are home from work and kids home from school to honor Veterans Day.  The First World War (which was called the war to end all wars) ended at 11 AM on the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918. After the war ended, Congress declared November 11th an annual holiday and called it Armistice Day. Canada observes the same holiday, calling it Remembrance Day. About 1953, after the Second World War, the name was changed to Veterans Day but the holiday was kept on the same date, except for a brief period from 1971-1977.  We have been engaged in fighting for our freedom since then and men and women have lost their lives so we could have freedom.

 Shortly after the Japanese surrender aboard the battleship Missouri, General MacArthur made the following historic broadcast to the American nation:

 Today the guns are silent. A great tragedy has ended. A great victory has been won. The skies no longer rain death – the seas bear only commerce – men everywhere walk upright in the sunlight. The entire world is quietly at peace. The holy mission has been completed. And in reporting this to you, the people, I speak for the thousands of silent lips forever stilled among the jungles and the beaches and in the deep waters of the Pacific which marked the way. I speak for the unnamed brave millions homeward bound to take up the challenge of that future which they did so much to salvage from the brink of disaster.

 As I look back on the long, tortuous trail from those grim days of Bataan and Corregidor, when an entire world lived in fear, when democracy was on the defensive everywhere, when modern civilization trembled in the balance, I thank a merciful God that He has given us the faith, the courage and the power from which to mold victory. We have known the bitterness of defeat and the exultation of triumph, and from both we have learned there can be no turning back. We must go forward to preserve in peace what we won in war.

We have to teach our children why we celebrate this holiday and that we should never forget the sacrifice that has been made and people continue to make for us everyday.  Thank you to all the men and women who have served in the armed forces and continue to serve.

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
    the people he chose for his inheritance.
 From heaven the Lord looks down
    and sees all mankind;
 from his dwelling place he watches
    all who live on earth—
 he who forms the hearts of all,
    who considers everything they do.
Psalm 33:12-15

Our family loves the show Duck Dynasty.  It is hard to find a show anymore suitable for your whole family to watch together.  The thing I love the most is the end of every show, they are sitting at the table for dinner and the father prays.  For one things that is becoming a lost concept.  Families rarely are all home at the same time to eat dinner together.  I found this information about the Robertson family, the stars of the show and thought you might find interesting.

What drives them? You might be shocked to know that the motivating force is not fame and the money that comes with TV stardom. What drives them is a simple mission that began with the elder Robertson soon after his conversion to Christianity. They are focused on telling as many people as possible about the story of Jesus Christ and what he has done for sinful people, (that’s all of us..)
What Duck Dynasty and other family media has done is to open doors that could never have been opened any other way. Phil, Jase, Alan, and John have all the speaking opportunities they can handle and more. Even before Duck Dynasty Phil was booked up for about 3 years in advance. They speak at sports shows of all sorts, sports banquets at churches and other venues, and almost anywhere they can get an audience. What you might not know is that every speaking opportunity features a rugged looking outdoors type dude with duck calls in one hand and a Bible in the other. They almost never speak anywhere that they don’t preach the gospel. This family has preached the good news about Jesus to far more people in the last several years than many major ministries ever could. They walk the walk and talk the talk, for this I most respect what they do and who they are. (Grace Digest)

A diving accident in 1967 left Joni Eareckson, then 17, a quadriplegic in a wheelchair, unable to use her hands. After two years of rehabilitation, she emerged with new skills and a fresh determination to help others in similar situations.
During her rehabilitation, Joni spent long months learning how to paint with a brush between her teeth. Her high-detail fine art paintings and prints are sought-after and collected.  Her best-selling autobiography “Joni” and the feature film of the same name have been translated into many languages, introducing her to people around the world. She also has visited more than 45 countries.  Her testimony is proof that we can emerge from earth shattering situations and triumphant in life with the help of the Lord.  Here is a wonderful quote from her,
“God is more concerned with conforming me to the likeness of His Son than leaving me in my comfort zones. God is more interested in inward qualities than outward circumstances – things like refining my faith, humbling my heart, cleaning up my thought life and strengthening my character.” ~Joni Eareckson Tada

I think people have a hard time understanding why bad things happen.  She also states, Sometimes God allows what he hates to accomplish what he loves.  Unfortunately it is usually the hard times that redefine who we are and what it is important to us.

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.  Isaiah 41:10

Do you ever wonder why God loves us so much?  I don’t think we really have an understanding of the depth of His love.  There is nothing we can do or say that will give us salvation.  Salvation is only by God’s grace.  He loved us so much that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead.

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: nott of works, lest any man should boast.  For we are his workmanship created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordanined that we should walk in them.”
Ephesians 2:8-10

In all these unknown there is one known, God.  Do we have faith that God can handle our problems?  It is hard to trust that everything will be ok when all signs are negative.  Cast your cares on Him.  God is real and he can handle our problems better than we can.

The storm, Sandy that has recently hit our country and devastated many left homeless.  If anything this is a reminder anything on this earth is never meant to be eternal.  That is why we place our hope in the Lord.  Pray for the people that have been affected by this storm.

“Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.  Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.  Be self-controlled and alert.  Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.  Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings. And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.  To him be the power for ever and ever.  Amen.
1 Peter 5:6-11

The things of this world can be a stumbling block to our Christian walk if we are not careful.  We have to keep a firm foundation in our knowledge of who God is and where we would be if it wasn’t for Him.  The world can deceive us into placing importance on things that are fleeting and draw us away from our Creator.  We can be deceived more easily when we are not steadfast with the Lord. 

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him,  rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.
Colossians 2:6-8

This is election time right now and every time you turn on the news it usually in the topic somewhere.  It just makes me so glad we serve a God who doesn’t have to get votes to be 1st place.  In Exodus 3:14,  God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has sent me to you.'”  There is no human that can compare to the mighty God who created ALL things.  We are foolish compared to the wisdom of God.  We might be impressed about leaders that started this or did that.  By wisdom the Lord founded the earth; by understanding he established the heavens.  He doesn’t have to run for re-election, he will always be I AM.

” Do not deceive yourselves. If any of you think you are wise by the standards of this age, you should become “fools” so that you may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written: “He catches the wise in their craftiness”and again, “The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile.”So then, no more boasting about human leaders! All things are yours, whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or the present or the future—all are yours, and you are of Christ, and Christ is of God.

Friends are a gift from the Lord.  Sometimes friends can even be closer to us than family.  Seek to fellowship with people that will help you build a postive life.  Especially young people.  The people you surround yourself with, have an affect on you and your outlook on life.  The same is true if they are a negative influence.  Choose wisely and instruct your children to choose wisely.

The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, or kindly smile, or the joy of companionship.  It is the spiritual inspiration that come to one when he discovers that someone else beleives in him and is willing to trust him with friendship.  ~  Corrie Ten Boom

Light shines on the righteous and joy on the upright in heart. 
Rejoice in the Lord, you who are righteous, and praise his holy name.
Psalms 97:11-12

Making time for God seems to be a reoccuring theme.  Does anyone else feel like there are not enough hours in the day?  Read this and wanted to share with you.

The world is constantly vying for your attention, and sometimes the noise can be deafening.  Finding time for God takes time…it is up to you to find it.

Do we take the time to find it?  The less time we spend with the Lord the more time we spend trying to get ourself out of a bind that we would have avoided had we been in God’s word and listening for direction.

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
Hebrews 11:6

How does God’s grace affect your life daily?  In Psalm 103:8, “the Lord is merciful and gracious; he is slow to get angry and full of unfailing love.  Grace is the amazing kindness that God has for us and there is no one like him.  We don’t deserve it because how often do we forget our place and where would be if it wasn’t for the Lord and his gift of salvation.  We were born into a world of sin but because Christ died on the cross, his blood washed away our sins.  It is a gift.  It is not forced, it has to be the desire of your heart to live your life set free by his grace and forgiveness.

 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
Hebrews 4:16
