In Awe

***Our pastor delivered a powerful sermon yesterday. This month we have been studying who Jesus is, and why we celebrate Him. What really stuck with me yesterday was the fact that even as a baby, he was God. He was taken care of by those He created, and what sacrifice it was that the Creator of the universe, Lord over everything, took it upon Himself to become like us with all the hurts, conflicts, and pain in the world. He didn't have to experience any of that, but He did. I love the song, "Mary, Did You Know?" It really captures what James was trying to impress upon us yesterday:

Mary, Did You Know?
Written by Mark Lowry

Mary did you know
That your baby boy will one day walk on water?
Mary did you know
That your baby boy will save our sons and daughters?
Did you know
That your baby boy has come to make you new?
This child that you've delivered
Will soon deliver you

Mary did you know
That your baby boy will give sight to a blind man?
Mary did you know
That your baby boy will calm the storm with his hand?
Did you know
That your baby boy has walked where angels trod?
And when you kiss your little baby
You've kissed the face of God

Mary did you know?
The blind will see
The deaf will hear
The dead will live again
The lame will leap
The dumb will speak
The praises of the Lamb
Oh Mary did you know?

Mary did you know
That your baby boy is Lord of all creation?
Mary did you know
That your baby boy will one day rule the nations?
Did you know
That your baby boy is heaven's perfect Lamb?
This sleeping child you're holding
Is the Great I Am 

Those are powerful lyrics.

***The standoff in Sydney is over. No word yet on what happened to the suspect. There were some hurt, but apparently no one was killed.

***"Guntry" club opening near D.C.

Veterans and other gun enthusiasts looking to fire off a few rounds have a recently opened 65,000-square-foot facility just miles from the nation’s capital as a new option.
Elite Shooting Sports, LLC opened up the massive indoor shooting range last month just off of Interstate 66 in Gainesville, Virginia. Managing partner Greg Wodack said they had a great opening weekend and have attracted a significant number of veterans since the opening.
“I have a lot of vets, retired vets who come here,” said Mr. Wodack, saying that they enjoy a “first responder discount” in the way of a reduced rate on annual memberships. “We have a lot of vets that come here during the week, especially when it’s slower.”

I received my Indiana carry permit about a week ago. I need to take my .38 out to my sister's and practice, it has been a while since I fired a gun. I'm going to know it inside and out before I carry it anywhere.

***Mike Lee says Senate will limit Obama's control over amnesty. They had better, that's why we gave them such a resounding victory last month. I hope the Republicans don't squander this chance.

***Okay, I can't help myself...

in the name of Jesus

***Rush on what conservatives believe:

There's so many things that are misunderstood about people who engage in political discussions, because so much of politics is about arguing to win and to lose.  And in politics, when you talk about people losing, there are negative consequences to that.  But my fervent hope, and as a conservative -- and I know I speak for every conservative when I say, we love everybody, and we want everybody to succeed.  And that desire is really the foundation of every conservative economic and social belief. 
We don't want people to have to be dependent on people that really don't care about them.  We don't want people to have to be dependent on people that are really not interested in them.  We don't want people to have to be dependent on people who are using them.  We want people to experience the great things about achievement and accomplishment and success, because that's how we have a great country.  That is how we have a wonderful society.

***Dick Cheney was absolutely great on Meet the Press. Remember what it was like to have MEN who loved their country in office, rather than the eclair-spined wusses we have now?

***Obama's bottom line? Acquiescence to Iran. Great idea.

***The Great Campus Rape Hoax.

***I don't know why, but this cracks me up!


***“Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters” ~~ Albert Einstein

***Have a great day!
