LET YOUR HEART SING-- AND LET LOVE LEAD THE WAY.

Today’s world-- is not my world. Evil is in control-- while goodness hides in fear of punishment. And, I have every reason to believe--this isn't God's World  either. God's world centers on love, safety, goodness, and caring for others.  I sense God's unhappiness and-- my heart tells me it won't be long before God takes control.  I pray it won't be long before GOD is-- once-again--the center of our universe.

And, speaking of GOD---I must express my love for God, Churches, and Church Hymns! Hymns remind me of my growing-up days---of Sunday School Classes taught by my grandmother-- of an old-fashioned church with hard pews-- wooden floors-- a robe-less choir--of ceiling fans--and--the hand-held paper fans that advertised local funeral parlors. I remember everyone respectfully- standing when we sang certain hymns--including this one:

"Stand up-- Stand up for Jesus, ye soldiers of the cross.  Lift high his royal banner it must not suffer loss. From victory unto victory his army shall he lead. Till every foe is vanquished and Christ is Lord indeed."

 It’s time to lift God up....as high as we can get him....and show our enemy we are fearless because--- we are Christians who share the POWER OF GOD ALMIGHTY!  YES---- It's time for all of us to unite-- in FAITH.

The second verse of the National Hymn, "God of our Fathers" also sings to our cause---"Thy Love Divine hath led us in the past-- In this free land-- by Thee our lot is cast; Be Thou our Ruler, Guardian, Guide, and Stay--- Thy word our law-- Thy paths our chosen way."

I am proud to be a Christian. I believe in God, the Father Almighty-- maker of Heaven and Earth-- and in Jesus Christ-- God's only son-- our Lord and our Savior.

GOD BLESS AMERICA.
