“There Is A God In Heaven”


There is a great deal that could be said about this, but we’re interested mainly in the name or description of God that is used several times in Daniel.  That name is El Elyon, used most notably in chapter 4, where Nebuchadnezzar learns that there is someone higher than he is, someone he begins to understand who rules in the kingdom of men and gives it to whomsoever He will, Daniel 4:17, 25, 32.  In that same chapter, the name also occurs in vs. 24 and 34, and it occurs as well in Daniel 5:18, 21.

Regarding this confession of Nebuchadnezzar, there are some who believe that he was converted.  I disagree.  Even though he was compelled to acknowledge the God of heaven, there is no evidence that he ever submitted to the God of heaven.  Even in his celebrated “confession of faith” in Daniel 4, (in which he does…

~ Special Needs ~ A Rambling~

A wonderful observation…a great life lesson


As many of you may know we have been blessed with two special needs children.

I am starting to wonder if they are NOT special needs…maybe we that are “normal” in the eyes of society are the special needs ones.

I went bowling with them yesterday with there group of “special needs” friends.

We are blessed by the many young adults from our local high schools and colleges that help out with this group-you can see God’s love shining through these young adults-even though some may at this time think it is their own!

These special needs children & adults are SO full of love-brings tears to my eyes thinking about it!

They get excited over knocking one bowling pin down with assistance~ we “normals” don’t usaually  want to be helped! Is it vanity? pride?

They have not a care in the world~

They don’t care what they look like~…

Ireland Regresses; Sunday, Bloody Sunday

Ireland Regresses; Sunday, Bloody Sunday


There has been much rejoicing in Ireland over the result of a referendum. Large crowds gathered in Dublin city centre. A party was in full swing in Dublin Castle. Groups of cheering and clapping people were at the airport to cheer on those who had flown back especially to vote.


“Taoiseach Leo Varadkar was also greeted by cheers when he arrived as was Ailbhe Smyth from the Together for Yes campaign. Supporters ate After Eight chocolates and popped bottles of Champagne while waiting for the result to be announced. Some supporters dressed as angels, while hundreds wore jumpers and T-shirts with campaign slogan.”

“A ‘quiet revolution’   “I want to reassure you that Ireland today is the same as it was last week, but more tolerant, open and respectful.”  Irish Prime Minister – Leo Varadkar

Imagine you had been away for a few months and returned to this scene. You would…

Prepared Before

Still They Speak

“… a kingdom awaits the godly…for it was prepared for them by their Father, not only before they themselves existed, but before the foundation of the world. …The kingdom is not in process of preparation, but was prepared before, and the sons of the kingdom do not prepare the kingdom, but are in process of being prepared themselves….” –Martin Luther “The Bondage of the Will” p. 182

KNOWING THE TIME, because what's coming matters



Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.
Isaiah 66:8 KJV

I will restore the fortunes of my people Israel, and they shall rebuild the ruined cities and inhabit them; they shall plant vineyards and drink their wine, and they shall make gardens and eat their fruit. I will plant them on their land, and they shall never again be uprooted out of the land that I have given them,” says the Lord your God.”
‭‭Amos‬ ‭9:14-15‬ ‭ESV‬‬
