Happy Halloween

I think I have written about every thing October is known for accept the subject even more dangerous to discuss than the Duggars.  Yes I am talking about Halloween.  Should the church include it our list of out reach opportunities?  Should we allow our children to participate in school activities surrounding it?  Should we turn off our porch lights and stay in or should we pass out tracts?  Every year the same questions come up.  Time and time again arguments ensue.

Might I make a few suggestions?  How about we as Christians seek God on the matter for His wishes for our own families.  Read your Bibles and pray asking God what His will is for you.  Don’t knock others for what their family chooses to do.  In my area there are Trunk or Treat opportunities at a few churches.  Our own church has one that my 7-year-old daughter and I participate in.  In fact she has never been Trick or Treating and loves planning her theme for each year.

One year she was given a hand me down squid costume.  She told me “I am going to do Day 6.”  I asked her what she meant and she said, “God made the squids and other fishes on day six.  We are doing Day 6 for Trunk or Treat.”  She was 4 and had been learning about days of creation through Ken Ham’s Answers in Genesis curriculum during Sunday school hour.  So Halloween night she passed out candy and tracts.  This is a tradition she looks forward too.

In fact when our huge SUV died and we found a bargain on a small model car her only comment was “How am I going to decorate that for Trunk or Treat?” LOL  The church let us move her decorations inside in the gym.  That year she picked the Wizard of Oz and we looked up verses to apply to each character.  For instance we found verses about bravery for the lion, ones on the mind of Christ for the scarecrow, and of course verses about hiding God’s word in our hearts for the tin man.  We equated the yellow brick road to the streets of gold and the home that Dorothy was looking for is heaven.  You see if you want to you can make anything about God.

One conviction of my husband’s is that we do not do Jack O’lanterns.  He has studied the history of that tradition and the evil behind it.  So instead our daughter is allowed to paint pumpkins and put stickers on them when she gets them on various field trips.  One time when she was very small our local Wal-Mart had a free pumpkin painting area set up.  She was painting away having the time of her life making a mess.

She was putting a rainbow on the pumpkin because Noah’s Ark is one of her favorite Bible accounts and she loves Wizard of Oz.  A stranger started asking her why she was not putting a face on her pumpkin.  Her reply to the lady was simply what she knew at the time “Dad says they are not good.  They are not about God.”  The lady then asked her what the rainbow had to do with Halloween.  She answered, “It is a sign of God’s promise and He always keeps his promises.  Everything is about God.  Don’t you go to church?”  At that point I don’t know who was shaking her head harder the lady with all the questions or my little girl, who just wanted to paint a pumpkin and could not figure out why an adult did not know what a rainbow represents.  I can tell you the Wal-Mart worker said good for her under his breath.

Of course the lady wanted to keep asking questions and at the point I put a stop to it.  I told her if she wanted to hear the particular reasons my husband has I was sure he would be willing to tell her about his research.  Once I got the lady away from my girl I told her I was proud of her for remembering daddy does not like Jack O’lanterns and for obeying.  I believe we have to catch our kids being good as well as bad.  I also told her that it is so good to remember everything is about God.  Readers my prayer for you is that you remember that this Halloween.  Satan tried to take a day that God made and use it for evil.  However, we as His people can take it back and use it to bring knowledge of Him to some, who might never step in a  church.

Pastor Appreciation Month

October also happens to be pastor appreciation month.  Have you thanked your pastor yet?  I myself have an awesome one.  He tells us all the time to test him against scripture.  If at any time he waivers from it throw him out.  He wants us in the word.  He is more than a preacher.  He is available in times of crisis for our church.  He is a student of the Bible and tells us that if we have a question about life we must find our answers there.  He speaks the truth unapologetically.  He has openly confessed his past life and even the mistakes he makes on a daily basis.  Some are shocked by that.  However, I see it as a testimony and encouragement for the rest of us.  If we can not speak in front of our brothers and sisters in Christ, we have no chance in this world.  He is always ready to pray over every tragedy and death that comes to our portion of the body of Christ.  He listens without judgement or condemnation to our failures.  Yet points us in the right direction.  My prayer for you dear readers is that you too have a pastor like mine.  Though they are so hard to find.  I wrote this anagram for him.  You have permission to borrow it for your pastor if you like.  God bless you all.

Prays without ceasing

Always there and available

Studies and shares the Bible

Open about his faults

Goodbye is Something I Will Never Say to You

Since October is always a time to remember the lives of babies that were miscarried or stillborn,  I could not let it pass without mentioning this painful topic.  There are two Christian families on television that have shared their journeys down this road.  Michelle Duggar, Anna Duggar, Kelly Jo Bates and Erin Bates Paine have all discussed their miscarriages.
In the 19 Kids and Counting episodes about Jubilee the family noted how everyone grieves differently.  I personally thought that was great to mention.  I have heard too many told to “get over it” and “you can have another one”.  It does not matter how many children you have there is always an empty seat at holiday dinners and in your heart for the lost baby.  The fact the family never forgets baby Caleb is proof of that.
Jill Duggar Dillard and her husband Derick received a lot of complaints because she announced her pregnancy so soon.  I admired her reasoning and I will paraphrase what she said at the time.  All babies are important.  Even if you miscarry.  It is important to celebrate life.  What an important point to make in a world where women are told, “You should not announce to soon.  What  if something happens?”  Please don’t put those kind of thoughts in a pregnant women’s head.  You have no clue when you say it how many miscarriages the person has seen or had.
On Bringing Up Bates last season we witnessed Chad and Erin Paine’s issues with fertility.  We saw the tears she cried for her babies in heaven.  We heard her parents and siblings talk of the agony of seeing her miscarry.  She worked  on a baby shower for her sister-in-law when in her heart we know she was aching for the children that she lost.  I remember her dad, Gil saying it was harder to see her walk that path than to go down it himself when he and Kelly Jo had experienced it.  When Erin got to experience the joy of a shower of her own two balloons were released to heaven to celebrate the babies she never got to hold.
While I have never had a miscarriage myself I have been down that road with several friends.  I will end this blog with a poem I wrote for a dear friend of mine.  First I will tell you a little of her story.  Her last three pregnancies she told very few people about.  Her fifth one she said she was not going to plan for because she would be less disappointed if the baby was not born.

If you have lost a child I want to share with you the one thing that I have repeated to her so many times.  “It was not your fault.”  Of course those words have also been told to her husband as each one blamed themselves for something neither could control.  Folks told them God needed the baby more than they did.  Please never say that to parents, who are grieving the loss of their child.

Be a shoulder to cry on and an ear to hear.  Pray without ceasing.  Be available day and night.  There were days I dropped everything because she called and said her husband was at work and she just could not function.  She was depressed.  She needed the love of God.  So our girls would play and she would talk.  She poured out her heart and tears.  I would pray to God to ease her pain.

I thank God that the little girl she has, who doctors say she is lucky to have, is here.  The times when I have been with her to doctors’ appointments I have pointed out that luck has nothing to do with it.  She may never have another child but taking care of that one has kept her going many days.

Goodbye is Something I Will Never Say to You

The day I found out you were on the way my heart was filled with so much joy

It did not matter to me whether you would by a girl or a boy

I watched you grow on an ultra sound screen

I heard and saw your heart beating beneath mine

then came the day my dream turned into a nightmare

and I was filled with a pain so hard to bear

The doctor said I am sorry there is nothing we can do

this baby is not viable  You will have to tell it goodbye

That is something I will never say

I know when my life reaches its end

and I get to heaven

I will hold you in my arms

and whisper mama is here

No I never got to sing you a lullaby

but together we will sing with the saints on high

in the sweet bye and bye

I wondered if would look like me or your daddy

what would be the color of your eyes

whose smile would you have

I decorated your room in my mind

started to collect sweet baby things

such plans I had for you

those dreams won’t be realized

I will box up your belongings

Sweet baby of mine I won’t say good-bye to you

No that is something I will never do

for someday by God’s grace and that alone

I will hold you flesh of my flesh bone of my bone

No I never got to sing you a lullaby

but together we will sing with angels in the sky

where we will part nevermore

on God’s beautiful shore

Super Power

I am sharing with you all a poem that I wrote back in Nov of 2012.  It was inspired by my then 5 and a half-year old.  One day in all seriousness she said to me, “Mommy do you know I have a Super Power?”  I thought she was playing and asked her what her super power was.  Her reply floored me and brought tears to my eyes.  She said, “I can pray and there is power in prayer.”  Some times our children become the teachers and we become the students.
I told her yes indeed there is power in prayer.  We talked about how “Jesus is the only real Superhero.”  That was a theme of one of the Vacation Bible Schools she had attended that Summer.  I pointed out that if we pray in His name and for God’s will in every situation life will be so much easier.
She is now in a private Christian school and every day one of the things we pray for is the protection of the blood of Jesus over our friends, who either go to school or work in non-Christian friendly environments.  Each day as a I drop her off the door is opened a dedicated worker.  I can not tell you the peace it brings me that she is being prayed for throughout the day by her teachers and other staff members.  I have seen these employees stand in cold, rain and snow to keep the children warm and dry at pick up time.  I wish all children could have staff like the ones at her school.
Please as you make out your prayer list think of the children of this country.  The times we grew up in are gone.  They took prayer out of school.  One day a year they have Prayer at the Pole.  It must be student lead.  They are not being taught the truth of our country’s Christian heritage.  Girls and boys are instead being taught to be politically correct.  They are being lied to by grown ups, who are telling them wrong is right.  Creationism is being laughed at by teachers.  Instead Evolution is being shoved down their young throats.  If they can’t believe the truth of Genesis,  we will not be able to tell them the rest of God’s word is correct.  So please folks use your super power for the children of this country.  They are not the future of the church but the present.            
     I Have a  Super Power
I have a super power
you have never heard it called that before
No I have never held up a falling tower
I can’t leap tall buildings in a single bound
but I know in my weakness where strength is found

No I can’t see things through a wall                                                                                                                                       but with this super power                                                                                                                                                           I can talk to a God Who hears me when I call

I don’t have bionic hearing                                                                                                                                                       but when I am still and silent                                                                                                                                                       I hear the voice of the One Whose Son was sent

Gone on to Heaven

I can not let Breast Cancer Awareness month pass without sharing a poem I wrote back in 2011.  I am finding it hard to believe the lady that I penned these words about has been gone 4 years next week.  Jan  was a wonderful woman.  She was from my Sunday school class and always smiling.  She and her husband, Ben had the kind of love it seems fairy tales are written about.  They met in high school, married and had three gorgeous daughters.  Everything was going wonderful until the fateful day she discovered the lump.

She would later find out that her type of cancer is one of the cruelest.  The survival rate is slim and the treatment procedures intense.  She hated needles but she knew that there was nothing God would put her through that He would not be there.  She knew where she would go if she did not survive.

At our church is a wonderful woman, who beat the odds of this awful type of cancer.  She and her husband were a source of knowledge and comfort for Jan and Ben.  The two couples fellowshipped and prayed together.

One Sunday before Jan’s treatments started our Sunday school class decided to pray with her at the altar.  I remember feeling the Holy Spirit’s presence that day.  I was so touched.  As our class began to pray with her other members from church came down.  We had prayer meeting at the altar that day.  We prayed for God’s will and Jan’s peace.  We asked for His healing touch.

She did everything the doctors said.  They thought they had gotten rid of it but alas God’s way of healing this dear sweet lady was to take her to heaven.  Yes folks never forgot as you pray for miracles that God some times chooses to heal by taking folks to a place where there is no sorrow or pain.  People often say when that happens that some one lost a fight with cancer.  However, I am here to say Jan won because she never gave up.  Her life touched medical professionals and her attitude testified to God’s goodness.  The words in the following poem are things that she said in our class and at church when she would testify as she was walking through the journey of breast cancer.  I pray if you are reading this today and traveling the same road you remember you are not alone.  If you have lost a loved one to cancer remember those who knew Jesus are never truly gone.  They have eternal life.  We will see them again.

Jan’s poem

I want everyone to know you did not lose the battle with cancer

You won it when you began to pray

It lost when you said God will have His way

You defeated it when you said I have nothing to fear

 for my God and savior is always here

This mean vile disease will not have the victory

Your life has been a living testimony

You said I am a wimp but I will go on

He will not give me anything I can not handle

When I am weak  He will make me strong

You kept a smile on your face

even when you had to place  that wig on your head

You showed us all what it means to live by grace

You may have died but you are not dead

For His word promises you will live for eternity

There is an old song that says “Let all who come behind us find us faithful.”

Everyone who comes after you will be able to say about you

Your grandchildren and their children will know that you were truly beautiful

I will not say goodbye for I will see you again

so I will simply say later my friend

Duggar Daughters

I have a confession to make.  I am a Duggar fan.  I have been since 14 Kids and Counting.  When you are the youngest of 10, any family larger than yours intrigues you.  This family had more than numbers though.  It also had and still has a faith that has gotten them through the loss of Jim Bob’s dad, Josie’s premature birth and the miscarriage of Jubilee.

When the scandal broke, I was shocked.  Not by Josh’s actions 12 years ago at 14 but by the way grown ups acted in 2015.  That any paper would deliberately dig into a someone’s past as a minor and print the ages of underage victims floored me.  I was additionally flabbergasted that fan groups I was a part of would have members turn on the family.  The name calling that took place by some so-called Christians amazed me.

Folks took to writing vile comments on every Duggar family members’ walls.  TLC was bombarded with hate.  Fake fan groups started popping up on Facebook.  Of course they were carefully concealing themselves.  They would appear as friendly in a search but if you started looking at posts and photos you would see memes that would make you cry.

Then there are the groups which posts stories from news aggregates.  That is a fancy name for online gossip rags.  These groups draw in the big numbers of likes and use them to posts their stories.  One of those groups was the first one to post a story on Daniel Keller’s Instagram conversation on Jessa Seewald’s account.  If you did not hear about it yet Anna’s brother was urging her to leave Josh.

I understand his anger but social media is not the place to voice displeasure with a family member.  Of course he was encouraged by haters all joining in on what they thought Anna should do.  Those folks must never have made a mistake.  They also have forgotten marriage is between a man and woman.  There is  vow about no man putting it asunder.

At the time this happened my mind drifted back to Kathy Lee Gifford and how she forgave her husband Frank many years ago for adultery.  I do not remember the large outcry then.  Frank Gifford recently passed and I never saw one word of his past indiscretion mentioned.  Why was Kathy allowed to forgive and Anna is called horrible names for allowing God to rebuild what He put together in the first place?

Now fans have been given good news.  We will get to see Jessa and Ben Seewald’s baby preparation and the birth of the next GrandDuggar.  We will also get to see Jill Dillard, Derick Dillard and little Israel’s journey through life for a few episodes.  Haters are hating again.  They are trying to keep God’s children down.  You can write a million letters to sponsors but God is still in control.

You are also “accountable for every word that comes out of your mouth.”  In today’s language I think words that you type and post are counted against you as well.  Folks have forgotten how to hold their thoughts captive.  They just click away and let everyone know what is on their mind.  I so appreciate the way the Duggar Daughters and their spouses have handled these trials.  I pray blessings on them and on TLC for broadcasting these episodes.

I also want to close with a reminder that these are real people.  This is not a scripted show of fictional characters.  They are living breathing people with feelings.  Think before you type and if you can not say something nice say nothing.  God bless you all.

Saved by Grace

I am so grateful to God to know that I am saved by grace.  I believe that my faith in his death and resurrection as well as my repentance are what my salvation depends on.  I rely on the words in the old hymn, “Jesus Paid it All.”    When Christ was hanging on the cross, he told the thief,  “Today you will be with me in paradise.”  He did not tell him to say some Hail Mary’s or do anything else.  He did not say you must be baptized.  That sinner’s knowledge of who Jesus was got him into heaven

When we are saved, we want to do things for Him.  It is a joy to bring others to knowledge of Him.  We are told to be fishers of men.  The perishing are in need of rescuing.  It is a wonderful thing to bring honor to Him through prayer and serving our fellow-men.  There is after all a Go in God and a sat in Satan.  However, our salvation is not determined by anything but accepting the free gift He has given.

One of the first verses a child learns goes like this, “For God so loved the world He gave His only begotten Son that so whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life  John 3:16.”  We are further told, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness 1 John 1:9.”  There are no hymns about Victory in Works or there being Power in Works.  However, “Victory in Jesus” and “Power in the Blood” are some pretty well-known tunes. “Amazing Grace” is one of the most translated ever and I heard on K LOVE it is the song most quoted in other music lyrics.  If you read Eph 2:8-9 you will see that we are saved by faith and not by works.

If you turn to Matthew 3 in your Bible you can read the Baptism of Jesus.  It is one of the times in the Bible that we see the Holy Trinity all on one place.  The Father confirms the Son who is our Mediator.  The Holy Spirit descends upon Jesus. This shows us that it is important to God.  However, there is no where in the Bible that says it is a way to have eternal life.

Baptism is an awesome thing to witness and/or participate in it is not necessary to be dunked to get to heaven.  I well remember the day I was Baptized in the clear water of a river.  It was so wonderful to follow in the steps of my savior and do this outward sign of inward works.  Yet it was the trip I took to the foot of the cross and not the one where I walked “down by the riverside” that guarantees me a place in heaven.  1 Corinthians 12:13 of the New International Version says, “For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body–whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free–and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.”  You see those of us that have been Baptized are on Team Jesus.  However, there are those that are fighting the same fight that have not been dunked or dribbled on.  They are still part of the family of God and on the way to heaven.  It is up to God to tell someone to be Baptized and no man has that right.

Where was God?

The other night I watched an awesome documentary about the 2013 tornado in Moore, Ok.  It is called “Where Was God” and it is on Netflix.  I want to share a review of it with you all.  I don’t want to give any thing away.  However, I do want to tell you all some things that touched me.  I also want let you know that you can see it tonight for free and as a group.  Please watch with tissues.  You can find the movie on Twitter at https://twitter.com/WhereWasGodFilm.  There is an event on Facebook that you can join.  https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10206729360046755&set =gm.518016648354680 &type=3&theater.  If you don’t have Facebook then please go to www.WhereWasGod.com.

While watching you will see how God can use bad things to bring about good for His people.  You will view a community working together to help the injured and hurting.  Some had physical injuries and others had their hearts broken.  You will hear stories of heroism.  You will watch folks, who lost everything but hope.  You will laugh with them and weep as they cry.

In Where was God I saw how God gave a couple, who thought they would never have a child a son.  I heard and saw the joy on their faces as they remembered discovering their pregnancy.  Isn’t it awesome how God gives us what we need when we need it?  His ways are not our ways and He sees the things we do not see.  Think on that today if you are in a hurry for something He is saying wait to.

A teenage girl really moved my heart.  This young lady had been in a tornado before.  She actually lost her sister and father to that previous storm.  Yet when she saw a younger child in fear she did not dwell on the past.  She went to work bringing comfort to a small boy.  What an example to us grown folks she was and is.  We can not dwell on what is gone and done because He has work for us to do today.  There is such joy in using a part of your past that Satan has meant for evil for God’s glory.

This town was destroyed.  I mean every building in it was flattened.  Yet in the midst of their destroyed home one couple found a linen closet untouched.  Just as they were marveling at that their was a knock at the door.  School children were cold and the workers needed things to wrap them in.  There are no coincidences with God.  He saved those items to be used to give comfort to children who were shivering from cold and shock.  God is so good.

I saw how God used a woman, who had abortions and turned her life around.  He healed her heart and allowed her to forgive herself.  I saw a man,who fought with the demon of addiction and won.  God restored his family and he became husband and father that God designed him to be.  I saw a couple that lost a  child in the storm standing on faith they will see him again.  You see the dad got saved after the tragedy.  In life we can allow bad things to tear us away from God or we can stand on His promises knowing that He will bring us through what He leads us to.

There were teachers who wrapped their bodies around students to protect them from debris.  I heard about a little boy, who would not stop sharing things with other students.  That little boy now has a cross next to a classmate that he shared food with.  His parents say when they meet him in heaven, they know the first thing he will show them is Jesus.

I quickly took notes on my computer as I watched.  This quote from a pastor touched me.  “What are my kids going to learn about life as they watch me walk through hardships? I want them to say dad walked through that well.”  I want to close with that thought and a prayer that God will allow you and I to walk through all of life’s challenges well.  My mother used to love a song called “Let Those Who Come Behind Us Find Us Faithful.”

God is in Control

My mind is racing with blogs I want to write.  While researching material for some future blogs, I have stumbled on some positive things I want to share with you all.  There is a family in South Carolina that lost almost everything in a flood.  They had to evacuate quickly.  Upon their return  two pieces of furniture were upright and not soaked.

One was the chair holding the husband’s Bible.  Folks is that not a message from God on the importance He places on our time in His word?  It is called our daily bread.  Yet we, who are living here in a country where we are free to own many copies, neglect to read, study and meditate on it.  We are told to hide “His word in (our) hearts that (we) might not sin.”  We are further told to “study (it) to find (ourselves) approved.”  However, we make time in our busy lives for everything but Bread of Life.  Shame on us.

We have brothers and sisters in foreign lands being beheaded for owing Bibles and praying to the only living God.  Parents are being forced to watch their babies being tortured to bring them to belief in Allah.  Ya I know Islam is a peaceful religion.  That is the lie they are trying to feed us any way.  However, the news tells me differently.  It further tells me that this country is turning from God and towards that false one.  Folks while we have the freedom to read His word we need to get busy.

Search it so when the lies come at you will see them for what they are.  Do not be fooled by some nice person tricking you into reading the Quran.  Do not be deceived into thinking He is a good God and He will not send people to hell.  He does not send us there.  Our actions do.  However, He provided a way.  There is a heaven to be gained and a Hell to shun.  Being good is not good enough.  “All have sinned.”  We all need a savior.  He is knocking.  Won’t you please let Him in?

The other piece of furniture that was not turned over was a table that had risen with the flood waters and neatly gone right back down in its spot.  Yes God, Who told the tides where to stop allowed two items to rise and protected their contents.  He showed a family and us that He is in control.  Even in the midst of life’s trials and tribulations He is aware of each and  every one of our situations.  He cares and He is there.

What was so important about the table you ask?  It contained the offering check for the family’s church.  It was totally dry.  Yes the family lost everything but they were thankful that item was still ready to take to church.  Folks that think church is not important take note of this.  His word says to “not forsake the assembling of the brethren.”  He protected the family’s offering for a reason.  I am not saying you have to go to church to be saved but I know how much easier it is to walk with Him when you have brothers and sisters in Christ beside you.  This world is full of people and things wanting to pull you away.  Church is a place to gather strength.  We need to fellowship with other believers and hold each other up in prayer and also hold each other accountable for life’s actions.  As always I hope you all have blessed days.  Never forget He is with you always,                   .

God Never Changes and He is Coming Back.

I have been thinking about what to share with you all on this glorious Son day.  God directed me to share a poem He gave me a few months back.  Part of it had been running through my mind for a while but I had not taken the time to get it into the computer and finalize it.  That Sunday my pastor preached a sermon about how just because it is legal does not make it right.  He reminded us that we are to obey the laws of this land.  Unless that is the conflict with His.  I went home and got on my computer and finished what had been running through my mind for months.
It started after a Sunday school class when we were discussing about how what is wrong will seem right to some.  You see we have been studying the end times and folks from what I have seen of scripture we are there.  I ask you now to make sure you are ready for His return.  One day He is going to spit the eastern sky and come back in a cloud of glory.  For those that are ready it will wonderful.  For others it will begin the hardest period of their lives.  God always keeps His promises.  He never lies.
In the light of Kim Davis having been thrown in jail and other instances of blatant Christian persecution in our own country readers it is time to decide which side you are on.  No decision is a choice for the other side.  Today my prayers are with the families of victims, who lost their earthy lives simply for believing in God.  They are also with a missionary that has been jailed too long while our government negotiates with terrorist and allows violent beings over  the borders.  The country that was found on Godly principles is being torn apart.  Our Constitution is being abused and “In God We Trust” is now offensive to some.  Too bad.  God always wins.  Have a blessed day.

We are living in a mixed up kind of world

and it is getting crazier every day

people are telling us what God said was wrong

is now okay

they are telling these untruths to our boys and girls

and they’ve got Christians singing their song

they have fallen under the spell of the Father of lies

They say what He said in the past no longer applies

That can never be

God never changes

He is not like the weather

He is the same yesterday, today and forever

what he said was wrong way back when

my friends He still considers sin

Just like black can not be white

wrong will never be right

There are no shades of gray

since the road to heaven is a narrow way

These misguided souls rationalize and justify

by saying words were not spoken by the One, Who sticks closer than a brother

They think those rules were for the times of our forefathers and mothers

That can never be

God never changes

He is not like the weather

He is the same yesterday, today and forever

what he said was wrong way back when

my friends He still considers sin
