This Weather is Hopeful to Me

This looks good! Very very good. I like the cold weather. It somehow seems hopeful to me, I don’t know why. Which is interesting, because during chapel this morning, Terry Law is talking about hope. Faith, hope and love. Lord knows, I have heard plenty of sermons about faith (thanks P. Brian) and a lot about love, but, as Terry pointed out, no one seems to talk about hope very much. Maybe I should learn something about hope . . .

(Notes from Terry Law:)

“Something good is going to happen to me.”

This is a saying made famous by Oral Roberts, but it is the ultimate statement of hope. We, as Christians, must stand on a foundation of hope.

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God,
to those who are the called according to His purpose” (Rom. 8:28)

We must keep this verse close to our heart. This is how God approaches our lives.

“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” (Ps. 23:6)

“If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!” (Matt. 7:11)

God, by His nature, is good. That is who He is.

This is a hopeful thought for the morning.


Energized? – Yeah, You Could Say That

I am fired up for McCain and the GOP this year! We need to win this election. Period. It is historically critical. When John McCain chose Sarah Palin as his running mate, I went from wanting to vote for him to wanting to fight for him. We have 8 weeks to go in this extremely close election.

This morning, I woke up at 5am and I am off to see Gov. Palin speak at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds. There will be a line. I will need some coffee. Updates will come after. But I wanted to put this up here as an example of my energy and hope in this party and the candidates that it has chosen. Good morning!

This morning I popped in the sermon cd from last night’s Catalyst service. This is what iTunes labelled P. Aaron’s sermon… yep. Queen’s Greatest Hits. That is awesome. PA is a rockstar.
