And the anti gun/Freedom, liberals and NAZIs in America today dream of….
For Memorial Weekend here.
We still were in the grips of one long snowy winter in mid April..14 plus inches of snow had fallen on April 13th and 14th, only a week or so before we had received another dumping of the white stuff…
Then some version of spring arrived..Not a nice version
And now this weekend it appears summer is here, 90 plus degrees, this weekend, with a forecast high of 98 !! Yes 98!! On Memorial Day!!
That is to damn hot!!
Friday I was out and at it getting mulch put down in MBWITW’s multiple flower gardens….60 plus bags. Was a somewhat hot, sweaty, many liquids consumed day.
With many breaks..
Saturday we finished with another 16 bags, then I did the weed begone thing and the anything green begone on the back patio/fire pit area (No damn fires this weekend!!
And mowed the lawn…
I don’t like hot weather, never have, never will!!!
My hope is to stay inside, but I have a couple of projects in the garage that need to be done….
Only a high of 95 today….sigh…
How else to get more voters, Dhimmicrats are already notorious for gaming the system any which way they can to win!!
You Need Power
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8).
D.L. Moody was a shoe salesman until God moved him into a full-time preaching ministry, often in the streets of Chicago. There came a point in his journey with God that he realized he needed more in his life than what he was experiencing. “At the close of the Sabbath evening services I remember two holy women they would say to me, ‘We have been praying for you.’ I said, ‘Why don’t you pray for the people?’ They answered, ‘You need power.’
‘I need power?’ I said to myself. Why, I thought I had power. I had a large Sabbath school and the largest congregation in Chicago. I was in a sense satisfied. But then came these two godly women who prayed for me, and their earnest talk about “the anointing for special service” set me thinking. I asked them to come and talk with me, and we got down on our knees. They poured out their hearts, that I might receive the anointing of the Holy Ghost. And there came a great hunger into my soul. I knew not what it was. I began to cry as I never did before. The hunger increased. I really felt that I did no want to live any longer if I could not have this power for service. I kept on crying all the time that God would fill me with His Spirit. Well, one day, in the city of New York – Oh, what a day! I cannot describe it; I seldom refer to it; it is almost too sacred an experience to me. Paul had an experience that he never spoke for fourteen years. I can only say, God revealed Himself to me, and I had such an experience of His love that I had to ask Him to say His hand.
I went to preaching again. The sermons were no different; I did not present any new truths, and yet hundreds were converted. I would not be placed back where I was before that blessed experience if you would gave me all Glasgow.*
