This masked, barbaric fiend is the epitome of of the word: coward. I can’t wait for him to meet US special forces or God face to face. Justice is coming for murderers.

Revelations 22:14-15
“Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.”

A good day fishing.

Austin first up on the rope swing.

The more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and spread.

When I called You answered me, you made me bold and stouthearted…though I walk in the midst of trouble, You preserve my life…The Lord will fulfill his purpose, for me.

Morning prayer: Exodus 1:12 & Psalm 138:3,7,8

Boys fishing

Beards.

““I am the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob.” -Exodus 3:6”

What a beautiful truth: One tree, deep roots, many branches, praying for good fruit and pruning where necessary to remove the branches that threaten the life or harvest of the tree.

I have heard teasing rumors…

of help, healing and answered prayer,

stories of a god who sees, who hears, who acts. 

—-

Desperate,

I’ve roused myself one last time,

to leave, to search, to find.

—-

Yet, the door is still…shut,

by men inside…to us outside.

—-

But, I still have my voice.

my wail,

my tears,

my story.

—-

You have your reasons,

religion, history and law,

I have nothing anymore,

not even my dignity. 

—-

You are Jesus, Son…of David

I am a dog…a bitch dog.

—-

You are silent,

it awakens me…

—-

You are distant,

it drives me towards you…

—-

You have reasons,

I have needs…

—-

You have piety,

I have pain…

—-

You have right and wrong,

I have…love,

and love…never fails. 

—-

I have faith,

and to You,

that is enough. 

 

Haley: Is it (civil rights movement) destined to be a violent revolution?

Martin Luther King JR: God willing, no. But white Americans must be made to understand the basic motives underlying Negro demonstrations. Many pent-up resentments and latent frustrations are boiling inside the Negro, and he must release them. It is not a threat but a fact of history that if an oppressed people’s pent-up emotions are not nonviolently released, they will be violently released. So let the Negro march. Let him make pilgrimages to city hall. Let him go on freedom rides. And above all, make an effort to understand why he must do this. For if his frustration and despair are allowed to continue piling up, millions of Negroes will seek solace and security in black-nationalist ideologies. And this, inevitably, would lead to a frightening racial nightmare.

“Men often hate each other because they fear each other; they fear each other because they do not know each other; they do not know each other because they cannot communicate; they cannot communicate because they are separated. Religion deals with both earth and heaven, both time and eternity.  Religion operates not only on the vertical plane but also on the horizontal.  It seeks not only to integrate men with God but to integrate men with men and each man with himself…Any religion that professes to be concerned with the souls of men and is not concerned with the slums that damn them, the economic conditions that strangle them and the social conditions that cripple them is a dry-as-dust religion.”

You speak of signs and wonders
But I need something other
I would believe if I was able
But I’m waiting on the crumbs from your table
U2, Crumbs from your table
The wicked draw their swords
and string their bows
to kill the poor and the oppressed,
to slaughter those who do right.
But their swords will stab their own hearts,
and their bows will be broken.
Psalm 37:14-15

I enjoyed a fantastic Afghan dinner of beef kebabs and chicken tonight at my friend Obaid house. Good conversation about faith, politics, prayer, education and family. The future of peace is in the hands of men like Obaid. This man can cook!
