Peekers and Seekers

Looks like I have a bi-monthly blog.

It's been my usual TWO weeks since I visited this blog.
Last night was the CNN Republican debate...I wanted so badly to watch as I have with all the others, but was too sick with URI (upper-respiratory-infection) - and the DVR was busy with other shows.
Sounds like Newt was the star again.  I'm not surprised.  Have I told you how much I agree with him??
I pulled up the WEEKLY STANDARD site this morning and you can read it or here's what I got out of it:

Billy Carter tried to stop Ronald Reagan with what the Dems called 'right-wing extremist' statements.
Californians tried to stop Arnold Schwartzenegger with his reputation of womanizing.
Republicans thought they could stop Clinton with the Monica affair...nope!
They also want "a candidate who's bold and tough"...enough so they may overlook some "female" troubles in his past.  He's pretty unbeatable in debate.
So, I guess you know who I'm rooting for...but in the end, it will be the man of God's appointment anyway.
Makes me think of the verse my daughter has on a card in her car:
"Look among the nations, and see;  wonder and be astounded.
For I am doing a work in your days that you would not believe if told."  Habakkuk 1:5

Enjoy your Thanksgiving.  We have much to be thankful for.

begging bread in desolate places:
if I was a beggar, a hungry beggar,
filled with visions of bread...warm,
fragrant, crusty bread...where would
I run to?  whose door would I knock on?
without running through all the streets,
where would I land first to beg bread?
whose hand would offer me bread,
satisfying my longing?
I would knock on the entry or push
open the door of a BAKERY...a
fragrant store of loaves__ piles, shelves
filled with fresh and perfect loaves of
wonderful bread.
The great Satisfier filled my longing
heart with Himself almost a half
century ago... like having constant
access to a shop filled with fresh bread at
anytime, He satisfys my longings for
divine sustenance, the Word...even
joining me in the filling.
He satisfys my soul, my cup
   runneth over.

A few minutes after writing the above,
I was directed to Acts 3 in my Bible study
book.  The account of the man lame from
birth, begging from men going into (Temple)
to worship.  He couldn't run from shop to shop,
down the streets of town.  There are several
positions of begging.  If he received coins, he
would need to employ able-bodied people to
search the shops for his bread.
Instead of money, Peter gave him
THE BREAD OF LIFE.  That Bread gave him
what he needed AND salvation.
I've tasted that's WUNDERFUL.
