2 Peter 3:8“But do not forget this one thing dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.” Often our lack of joy or thankfulness comes from not having things be the way we want right now.  Or it could be because you prayed for something or someone and the change has not occurred yet.  Naturally we tend to get discourage and our beliefs can turn to doubts when this happens. However, a scripture like this one can be encouraging knowing that God’s timing does not work like human timing.  God’s miracles that could seem like 1000 years from happening could happen in a days notices.  Something or someone you have been waiting on seemingly forever can suddenly change for your GOOD!   Our job is not to worry about the timing!  Our job is to st...

This Week...Perfect Weather for Ice Cream Day July 19This week we’ve had temperatures in the 90s so it makes sense that Sunday, July 19 is National Ice Cream Day.   Age does not diminish the extreme disappointment of having a scoop of ice cream fall from the cone.  Jim Fiebig When I think about summer one of the first things that comes to mind is an ice cream cone. I’m not sure why because I don’t often eat ice cream (the lactose thing) and whenever I try eating an ice cream cone I end up with the ice cream dripping down my are.  I go running when I have to. When the ice cream truck is doing sixty.     Wendy Liebma As far as ice cream goes, I’m not a big fan of that soft stuff that swirls out of a machine, nor do I like to bury my ice cream under mounds of colored sprinkles, candies, an...

Peter Heniein was born in Nuremberg, Germany back in 1485 to Peter and Barbara.  From what records, I could find is he apprenticed as a locksmith.  In 1504, he was involved in a brawl that left fellow locksmith Georg Glaser dead. Instead of fleeing he asked for asylum in the Franciscan Monastery in Nuremberg, which was granted.While in the monastery he acquired knowledge of astronomy, mathematics and one other thing (we’ll get to that in a moment).  He was also an inventor, by 1509, he was a master in the city of Nuremberg locksmith guild.  He died in 1542 in Nuremberg.What you may not know about Peter is that he invented the world’s first watch.  He is regarded as the first watchmaker in the history of timekeeping.  He also invented the first portable watch in history.  He called his w...

If you think your windshield wipers are not a vital piece of safety equipment, then you have never driven down the highway at night in a snowstorm with bad wipers. Opening the window and hanging your head outside will not be of much help, either.  Having good wipers gives you a sense of security. After all, weather is unpredictable and you never know when you will be driving in torrential rains or a heavy snowfall. As far as crucial safety devices for your vehicle go, wiper blades are a true bargain.  They can run you as low as $11 and seldom go over $50. It's probably an area where you can afford the best. Premium blades will likely function better and last longer.How To Find the Right Windshield Wiper Replacement for Your CarFinding the right blades for your vehicle begins with an imp...

  2 Peter 3:9 “The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness.  He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”   Christ is working in you to transform you to live life in his image, to be a follower of the TRUTH of Christ, and with that is a need for repentance.  Repentance is our opportunity to move from the carnal/worldly ways of doing things; into the heavenly/Christ way of operation.     Often the slowness of the prayers being answered and the promises of God coming to pass in our lives is related to the transformation that God is seeking in you to help you to walk in the anointing that God has already put on your life!  You have desires you want, you faithfully move with God, but for you to sustain the plans of G...

When you’ve been in an accident that wasn’t your fault, it’s difficult to focus on anything other than justice. This is often why victims reach out to personal injury lawyers. A PI lawyer can give you information on your next steps if you’ve been in a car crash, been the victim of medical malpractice, suffered an injury on a cruise ship or you have a family member who is the victim of a wrongful death case. However, in your pursuit of justice, it's important to remember that a personal injury lawyer isn't just someone who can represent you in court and someone who can get you the result you want. Hiring a personal injury lawyer can also have huge financial benefits. Want to know more? Read on.Your compensationThis one is obvious, but it’s true, nonetheless. Your personal injury lawyer s...
