DON'T ROCK THE BOAT ---

This world is alot of fun, its full of lust, laughter, people always hi-fiving each other . If one let's his eyes linger just a bit longer at the opposite sex , the possibility of flirting is there . The gossip around the water cooler is always so inviting, one gets to hear "the latest". Am so glad for the new line-up of tv shows, alot of off-colour innuendos , not to mention all the "skin" they are showing. And what about E-Harmony, where would we be without E-Harmony, 29 ways of finding compatibility. There is so much in common with the candidates from E-Harmony, they all have the same story ! - Amazing -- Girlfriends and boyfriends , ex-divorce's , grass was greener stories -- but now thanks to E-Harmony , life is perfect.
The future is great with the world -- 401 K plans enable us to retire early , buy more toys, more trips, more golf -- more cookouts by the pool -- yes , this is what its all about -- ME , ME and ME. Now , I don't want U to think I am not about God , I am - I go to church and do feel bad for some unfortunates, I give to my chuch and I believe God is understanding and will let me in heaven because Jesus did die for me -----plus , I am in no way as bad as some people. I am not "narrow minded" like some radical types -- God is not that narrow minded as some of "those" people would like U to think .
So All in All -------- I am happy and glad to be part of this big picture ------------

OK --------- quiz time ----

WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE -------------- lol

It is comforting to know God has ordained our course...

I have fallen to the wayside before and become entangled with the things of the world....and so know the way of the transgressor is hard...

teach me dear Jesus to walk in obedience to you...

thanks for this post passing-thru....

Its so easy to lose one 's way and fall into a trap.The deceptions of the world are so attractive specially when one is at a low point in their lives.

My mother cough is slowing getting better.

My vertigo is 75 percent healed, thank you for your prayers.

Now I am having a lot of trouble with my Internet connection, its on the blink and very unstabe. Just tests my patience to the utmost

Dear passing-thru,
I had to go to Wikipedia to learn what e-Harmony was all about.
Ja, now I'm wiser, but not filled with wisdom.
I was searching in my Bible for the right word, but was lead to the Bible gateway where I found these:
Proverbs 1:
20 Wisdom calls aloud outside;
She raises her voice in the open squares.
21 She cries out in the chief concourses,[b]
At the openings of the gates in the city
She speaks her words:
22 “ How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity?
For scorners delight in their scorning,
And fools hate knowledge.
23 Turn at my rebuke;
Surely I will pour out my spirit on you;
I will make my words known to you.
24 Because I have called and you refused,
I have stretched out my hand and no one regarded,
25 Because you disdained all my counsel,
And would have none of my rebuke,
26 I also will laugh at your calamity;
I will mock when your terror comes,
27 When your terror comes like a storm,
And your destruction comes like a whirlwind,
When distress and anguish come upon you.
28 “ Then they will call on me, but I will not answer;
They will seek me diligently, but they will not find me.
29 Because they hated knowledge
And did not choose the fear of the LORD,
30 They would have none of my counsel
And despised my every rebuke.
31 Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way,
And be filled to the full with their own fancies.
32 For the turning away of the simple will slay them,
And the complacency of fools will destroy them;
33 But whoever listens to me will dwell safely,
And will be secure, without fear of evil.”
Have a blessed week, dear passing-thru.
From Felisol

SWEET!!! when did you start this blog?



take care
and thanks

Terry said...

Dear Passing-thru.
Tuesday... and I am finally getting caught up to all the excellent blogs I have been missing and what a happy surprise to find that you have added several more excellent posts!

What is wrong with this picture?
What the world thinks is fun! We are getting so tired of even turning the channel on TV to get to a good program and getting just glimpses of some of the wicked scenes going on on some of the channels. Bernie has decided to block these off the TV completely but even on the so called "clean" channels, some of the commercials leave a lot to be desired too in the line of cleanness!
We have one channel from Buffalo where we can watch "Leave It To Beaver", "Andy Griffith" and "Wagon Train" and quite a few of the good ole oldies!
The sit coms they have now a-days, well, what I call them is "sick" coms" I am glad that Bernie despises them too! He says the guys at work laugh their heads off at them and Bernie says he sees nothing funny about it a ll. They can't even come close to "Lucy" or "My three Sons". I guess they think Berne is some sort of square or something!
I don't know what E Harmony is either. I will have to google it!
I am glad that I am narrow minded because that is the only way I can be because I am on the narrow road!
You know that expression Passing-thru?.."Everyone to his own"?
Well that expression surely is not new!
Here it is!.. Isaiah 53:6
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned "EVERYONE TO HIS OWN" way and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

Great thought provoking post Passing-thru.....Love Terry

Pilot Mom said...

Well, if this doesn't knock the socks off me! :) Imagine my surprise to find you have a blog, albeit, a little behind the times, but I'm a little behind in finding it out! LOL!

Way to go, Passing Thru!

Vicki said...

Hey there, PT. Just wanted to pay you a visit...hope you'll continue posting. You have much to share with us!

Felisol said...

Dear passing-thru,
I'm missing your comments and prayers.
I often think about you. Hope you are doing well.
Also hope hearing from you soon.
From Felisol

Felisol said...

Dear Passing-Thru,
Happy, Happy Birthday!
From Felisol

Terry said...

Dear Paasing-thru...everybody sure is missing you!!!!

hebrews 11:1 said...

Hi, PT!

I wrote this out on Pals in January when we missed you sooo much...I cannot beging to explain how much fun I had looking up the verses used in it and blending them all together to form this letter...here it is again:

Heb, the servant of Jesus Christ, to the beloved saint in Christ Jesus in Indiana, Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy, For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until the day ye left, Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: Even as it is meet for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart; inasmuch as both in my bonds, and in the defence and confirmation of the gospel, ye all are partakers of my grace. For God is my record, how greatly I long after you all in the bowels of Jesus Christ. And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ; Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.Therefore, my brother dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, my dearly beloved.I beseech you that ye return unto us, whom through your encouragement, grew both in knowledge of the scripture, faith, and in love, towards eachother, and towards our dear Savior. Your inspiring stories of God’s goodness and faithfulness have brightened my path, and I sorely miss them…and judging by the comments left recently, I am not alone. Your calls to prayer helped us to remember all the saints in need of prayer and encouragement. Brother, although it may be good to abstain for a time that ye may draw near to God without distraction, yet after a time, return to the fellowship of the saints which ye partook, who ye daily encouraged with your presence. So then, I beseech you by the mercies of God, to strengthen that which remains.

Regarding the cloak left at Troas, it has not arrived yet, but peradventure it be the cloak of heaviness and sorrow, I have no need for it. Rather, if you find a garment of praise, please send it next-day-service. Thank you.

Finally, my brother, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might. Let us not become weary in well doing, for we shall reap if we faint not. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you, both now and forever. Amen.


God bless you,
LPP

Dear passing-thru Bob,
I passed by your name on my bookmark list and thought it was too long since i had said hello.
I never can thank you enough for your wonderful, strong prayers on the Pilgrim Pals. They gave me strength when I was extremely fragile.
You now you are in my prayers now,
dear brother in Jesus.
From Felisol
"I have come that you shall have life, abundance of life." Amen

hebrews 11:1 said...

Hi Passing-thru,

You always seem to come around in the summer...but it is very disappointing to not have heard from you lately!! I thought of you as we drove through Indiana this April...hope you pass and STOP by Pals sometime...we miss you so much!

God bless you richly,
LPP

Felisol said...

Dear Passing-thru Bob.
I haven't got much to say, I just happen to pass through, and want to tell; I'm thinking of you and forever grateful for what you gave.
I'm also grateful for the fact the prayers don't expire on date. Never the ones you prayed for me or I prayed for you.
May the Lord see to you in a special way just now.
Love from Felisol
