Maybe I should just run for president.

You have heard that it was said, "Love your neighbor and hate your enemy." But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven

Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am

I remember this day well [17 Dec 2003|08:59pm]
"An angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, 'Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins." -- Matthew 1:20 and 21

I tell you the truth, I am the gate for the sheep; whoever enters through me will be saved. He will come in and go out, and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

Ecclesiastes / Chapter 12 [29 Nov 2003|05:07pm]

Ecclesiastes

Chapter 12


1
Remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the evil days come And the years approach of which you will say, I have no pleasure in them;

2
Before the sun is darkened. and the light, and the moon, and the stars, while the clouds return after the rain;

3
When the guardians of the house tremble, and the strong men are bent, And the grinders are idle because they are few, and they who look through the windows grow blind;

4
When the doors to the street are shut, and the sound of the mill is low; When one waits for the chirp of a bird, but all the daughters of song are suppressed;

5
And one fears heights, and perils in the street; When the almond tree blooms, and the locust grows sluggish and the caper berry is without effect, Because man goes to his lasting home, and mourners go about the streets;

6
Before the silver cord is snapped and the golden bowl is broken, And the pitcher is shattered at the spring, and the broken pulley falls into the well,

7
And the dust returns to the earth as it once was, and the life breath returns to God who gave it.

8
Vanity of vanities, says Qoheleth, all things are vanity!

9
Besides being wise, Qoheleth taught the people knowledge, and weighed, scrutinized and arranged many proverbs.

10
Qoheleth sought to find pleasing sayings, and to write down true sayings with precision.

11
The sayings of the wise are like goads; like fixed spikes are the topics given by one collector.

12
As to more than these, my son, beware. Of the making of many books there is no end, and in much study there is weariness for the flesh.

13
The last word, when all is heard: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is man's all;

14
because God will bring to judgment every work, with all its hidden qualities, whether good or bad.

The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness
for his name's sake.
Even though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
forever.
