A while ago I came across a blog post on facebook that put in to words what I had been processing about the issue of the purity ring movement.
This week...again on facebook...I came across a link posted by a friend that put into words what I had been processing about the teaching of tithing trend.
Again on facebook...I was introduced to a Christianity Today article... which put into words what I had been processing about breast feeding in church circles.
^ That one...the breastfeeding one ...partnered with living life in proximity to those who may not be fully like-minded in the modesty area...caused me to think deeper and again about the topic.
I came across this story...over at aol entertainment...which ...
me posting a photo over on facebook...
What does a 9 year old girl do while her mother is occupied running lines (in a Southern accent :) with her brother for a Civil War era project?
Mcabe and I were walking down the auditorium aisle headed for the spot where the Lord's Table elements were waiting. Just as we got to the front of the line...we saw him off to the right. A jittery man...with a backpack. As he placed the backpack down and stepped back from it... Mcabe and I made eye contact. I noticed the man directly behind the jittery man take notice too. I actually saw the double take. It happened in slow motion.
The man was jittery.
He had placed a backpack on the ground and moved away from it.
It was a camouflage backpack. Khaki in color.
His hair was cropped very short and he was of a darker complexion. Middle Eastern? Possibly Hispanic? The lights were down.
Mcabe and I moved back to our seats. I told Brave and Brad what we had witnessed.
Twice during the second worship set...I made my way back down the aisle to check to see if the jittery man was still somewhat near his backpack.
A few things went through my mind.....
Hollywood Blvd. had been shut down due to a bomb threat a few days before.
I know there are undercover security guys at Reality LA...but who knows how many and where they were at???? They are undercover.
Galilee and Jemima were unaware. Zion was in another area.
Bradley had asked for his phone/camera and moved closer to the jittery man with the backpack.
There was an unspoken agreement between the boys and I. Times are crazy. God is sovereign and worthy of our praise. Be alert. Remain hopeful.
Is home-educating your children difficult?
Depends. Not all the time.
Is it fun?
Depends. Not all the time.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev who I am praying for today. I am praying that the Lord would interrupt his life and save him from himself. I'm praying that like Saul he would have a Damascus Road encounter.
According to the Lord's perfect will.
Oh that he would be transformed into a Paul.
This may sound like a rambling mess...it's cuz I am processing as I am writing.
I am amazed by the way the Lord uses His church to glorify Himself and encourage one another. If you know me...I am a big picture person. I see the end result clearly...but not always the forest for the trees.
I am able to boldly proclaim the destination ...but need others to set the course if you will. To mapquest the route.
I have a vision for what a home-educating co-op should be but not for scheduling the calendar.
In Christ...each of us is part of a body. The body of Christ.
I have a sister in Christ who is very good with details. In fact...her strength is in the details.
This morning...she dropped a bit of very important information into my lap...without even blinking an eye. Effortlessly...she connected all the puzzle pieces scattered on the tabletop of my mind.
Rambling might get worse here......Remember I am processing as I type....
When Dan Cathay, the President of Chick-fil-A was asked his position on marriage he confirmed that he was indeed pro traditional marriage.
He was attacked for his answer.
Many in the gay community claimed they were being terrorized by organizations who defended traditional marriage.
The mayor of Boston said he did not want Chick-fil-A's in Boston.
Some in conservative circles pointed out the hypocrisy of the mayor's position...given the fact that he made it super easy for a Muslim mosque to be built in Boston. Knowing something about Islamic teaching in regards to homosexuals...they knew that the Koran would have gays beheaded for their lifestyle.
OhMYGOODNESS!!!!!!! I was so distracted by the recent terrorist attacks in Boston...weeping for and praying for the victims...praying for law enforcement...praying that the terrorists would be identified ....killed or captured...that I did not connect the dots that the mayor of that Boston is this mayor of this Boston.
And now I learn that the mosque he helped build by his PC tolerance is the same mosque the two coward terrorists attended in Boston!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So the mayor of Boston who did not want Chick-fil-A's in Boston because it's President...a Christian man...held to certain religious beliefs...
....more or less (w/other elected and appointed officials) aided and abetted the Islamic terrorists who attacked his own city in a religious act. Jihad.
Weeping. And feeling as if I am going to vomit.
