Antidote to the News: ‘Light of the World’

By the time Saturday morning rolls around, the news of this dark and evil age feels to me like a bad sunburn. Every time you move, it hurts. You can’t bear to put your shirt on.

This hymn reveals the antidote: Jesus Christ. Light of the World, by Charles Wesley, performed by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band, has become one of my all-time favorite hymns, and I hope you like it, too. Jesus is that light, the true light, that lighteth every man who cometh into the world (John 1): the light the darkness cannot comprehend.


Guaranteed Soothing Video: Friendly Fish

True, this video is kind of long (10 minutes), and I hope you don’t find it boring. But as for me, I could feel my blood pressure going down as I watched.

Who knew fish could be so interactive with humans? Did you? God’s stuff never runs out of surprises for us.


What Do You Say to a Moth?

My cat Henry used to do this all the time. A moth would fly in and park on the ceiling, and Henry would climb all around the furniture, yapping at the moth. What was he saying? I’m not sure, but I think it was something like “Come down here, you coward! Think you’re tough, eh? Just wait’ll I get my paws on you!” I guess the moths understood him because they never came down.


By Request: ‘I Know God Put ‘Em There’

Erlene asked for this worship song by Carroll Roberson, I Know God Put ‘Em There (sorry, Erlene, I couldn’t find the other one you asked for).

If you’re new to this blog: we like to start every day with a hymn, and we take requests. So if there’s a hymn or worship song you’d like to see posted here, just let us know.


The Frolicking Sheep

Odd that the only pet mentioned in the Bible is a little ewe lamb that a poor man raised by hand and cuddled in his bed–only to have it taken away from him by a rich man who wanted it for dinner. When King David heard about that, he ordered the execution of the rich man: only then to learn that this was a parable that Nathan was telling him to make him understand how gravely he had sinned in order to rob Uriah the Hittite of his wife, Bathsheba. (2 Samuel, Chapter 12)

We don’t think of sheep as pets, but certainly the one in this video acts like he’s somebody’s pet. I had no idea a sheep could be so merry. A pet like this would be very easy to love.


‘Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee’ (Libera)

I have to take Robbie to the vet this morning, but first the hymn for the day–Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee, performed by Libera boys’ choir with orchestra backup.

Don’t worry: they just want to check and see how the treatment is working for her. We think the signs are positive.


Cats Who Like Shoes

Most cats I’ve known have loved shoes–especially if they’re old and smelly. The shoes, I mean, not the cats.

Our cat Peep is a little devil when it comes to shoes. She has untied my shoes while I was wearing them. As a kitten, she once pulled out one of Patty’s shoelaces and ate it. Try to guess who wound up with the job of checking you-know-what to make sure the shoelace came out. Which it did, thank heaven.

Note that the maker of this video was careful to remove the laces from these shoes.


Sanity Break: Sweet Little Owls

To see how these little owls get along with people, and even with a dog, is to get a glimpse of God’s love. Love is the quintessential God’s stuff, and it works. And not just for humans, either.

One day when I was five years old, my friend and I ventured into the woods; and we hadn’t gone far when we got the scare of our lives. The noise we made disturbed an owl and flushed him out of his perch in a small tree beside the path, just four or five feet from us. Yikes! To this day I remember that owl as being a lot bigger than either of us.

But I know now that there was nothing to be afraid of.


By Request: ‘He Still Has the Scars’

Requested by Erlene, as an antidote to the grim and evil news of these days–He Still Has the Scars, by Carroll Roberson.

As a sinner I would not dare to pray, but for my faith in God’s word, that His sovereign grace has covered me with Christ’s righteousness. By His stripes we are healed.


The War on the Past is a War Against the Future

Why are leftids all over America in a frenzy to destroy Confederate monuments? Why wage this cowardly war upon the dead, who can’t defend themselves–and why with such a boiling passion?

Now they attack not only Confederate dead, but also George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson, Theodore Roosevelt. See, everyone who had anything to do with creating and building the United States of America, they’re all racists, they’re all slaveholders. Down with them! And down with everything they ever said or did!

President Trump has asked, “Which statues are next?”

And why are the rest of us, millions of us, permitting this to happen? Why are we not saying “No!”

This is the Left trying to cut us off from all our past. No Washington and Jefferson, and there’s no Declaration of Independence, no Constitution, no Bill of Rights. They owned slaves 200 years ago, therefore everything they ever said or did is tainted. All our heritage from them–for instance, our right to free speech–is tainted, too, and must be done away with in the interests of social justice.

Then we can have this lovely PC country where no one has any rights at all.

Take a good, hard look at these people, and a good, hard listen. Do you want them to rule over you? Do you want them to have the power?

Their war is not about the past; that’s only on the surface. Underneath it is a war upon the future, which they mean to win. They hate our country and mean to destroy it.

May God smite them first.
