This is the Bible Belt. If you don't have a church home, you can get the Word in a million ways. Every tv channel is running religious programming. Fine by me. I turn to Joel Osteen, who reminds me that God is in control. Another testimony is in order.
Call me old-fashioned but I have a serious problem with those leaders who show up to deliver the Word in torn jeans, leisure suits, etc. Didn't see a lot of that in DC; maybe I didn't look hard enough. However, if I can show up in "Sunday go-to-meeting" attire, I want my minister to do the same. Thank you, Rev. Ridley. I expect him/her to lead by example. You can identify with your congregation without showing up in street clothes. Show a little respect for the House of the Lord. Enough on that subject.
It is a glorious morning, a day the Lord has made. Bright and warm. The birds are in full song. Something about hearing their chirping that just lifts the spirits. "His eye is on the sparrow and I know he watches over me."
Have recalculated the funds. They are not increasing and a job search will soon be in order. Need a permanent address first. In the meantime, I'm trusting in Jeremiah's message.
