    Greetings. There is without a doubt a lot of teaching today which focuses on prosperity in this life as opposed to the laying up of treasure in heaven. Thanks for pointing this out as we should all strive to lay up treasure in heaven; not heap unto ourselves the trappings of this life.

    I’d comment on just about every post here if I didn’t feel like I was having the same reaction over and over. Which is to say, “right on!” – which goes for just about every observation you’re making lately.

    well thank you Howard! I am glad we are like minded. And thank you for stopping by throughout the past months. I enjoy the back and forth and feel blessed.

    PS GO EAGLES!

    Hi,

    I like the message here, content as well as its own simple (clear) language. Well done.

    I also thought you might like to look over a magazine I recently stumbled over (actually re-stumbled in that I remember seeing a print copy somewhere and had been going to check it out–and forgot). I ordered a trial subscription myself just now…

    deb, thank you for the complement. Also thank you for providing a link to yes magazine. I checked it out and it looks worthwhile. I will look for it at mag racks.

    Looking at the Yes website reminded me of the ideals and sensibilities we had prior to the Regan Presidency. Since 1980, we have been living in the 1950’s.

    peace
