Taken from: Q&A’s for Billy Graham

As I read this Q&A today By Dr. Billy Graham for part of my daily devotion I thought this goes right along with our (GN’S) Part I Passivity and Part II Obedience

“Why is it so hard to be a Christian and do what’s right?” Read Billy Graham’s answer

One reason is because you and I are part of a much larger spiritual battle — a cosmic battle between God and the devil. The Bible warns, “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against … the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” (Ephesians 6:12).

Never forget: Satan is absolutely opposed to God, and his single goal is to stop God’s work — including His work in our lives. When we come to Christ, we change sides (as it were), moving our citizenship from Satan’s kingdom to God’s Kingdom. Now our goal is to follow Christ and become more like Him.

But this doesn’t mean Satan is going to leave us alone! Continue reading “Taken from: Q&A’s for Billy Graham”

BEACH WEDDING-surfs up


WOW! I made it to the “Beach Wedding”! Kitty Hawk NC Friday Night
5PM. Just about High Tide! I think my picture will speak for me. O
Sunset, where art thou?
I didn’t have the heart to show the Bride and Groom but they did
great. After all-it it was their day.

The Methodist Minister was great too, I think, I couldn’t hear a
word he had to say except he had a famous quote that was his very
favorite and then the wind blew it away.
The family, friends and food were impressively splendid.

The house was lovely and full of Tommy Bahama’ s decor. The pool
was inviting but off limits to wedding guest who were all wet from
high tide. But some dived to their chagrin and the groom’s buddies
took all the blame!

Have you ever been in High Tide in Kitty Hawk in the rain and winds
in October? If not, why not? Just give it a whirl and the wind Continue reading “BEACH WEDDING-surfs up”

My friend, Age 99


My Friend, Age 99

Anna, Sister Grandma, as she is affectionately called by so many died Monday, at age 99!

Anna, had been around a sure long time to make her children, family and friends feel so awful special.

She was wise but now her wisdom knows no limits.
She gained knowledge as she thumbed through her Bible on each and everyday. But now her knowledge is seen with just the eye.
Her heart was passionately in love with all she knew but now her heart is given to all!
Her legs were swollen and swelling but now they are just the right size.
Her hearing had left her for quite awhile but now the friend of hearing has become her very best friend.

I could go on and on but as I speak with her daughter, my friend, we believe we could never cover the all.

The mind and heart will tell us on each given day just what we believe our good friend, Ann Continue reading “My friend, Age 99”
