Tournament, Beavers, Hockey, and Hearts
Today Arthur is at our District Republican Convention. Isaac, Silas, and Priscilla went to a Tea Party. Then Isaac came home and accidentally stabbed himself in the arm while getting ready to skin a beaver. It looked pretty bad but after it was all cleaned up it wasn't too bad. Please pray that it heals nicely and doesn't get infection or something.
Last night we watched the movie, "A Nation Adrift" to preview it for the church library. It did a good job going from before we became a nation founded on God's principles, and hit on the highlights of our country's history. As you got further into the movie they showed things that happened leading our country to the state it's in today. Parts we fastforwarded because frankly seeing abortions and same sex couples turns our stomachs!
Many people think the solution is to get believers involved in government, and that is certainly needed, but even more so, the hearts of American's need to be turned to God. If the congress and White House was full of conservative Bible believing people, it wouldn't last long because the hearts of the people really don't want what's right, at least the majority don't. It took the liberals years to change our country and it can't be changed back unless people get saved. We need a revival. We talked about it as a family, about just what it takes to get a revival going with the masses, and I'm afraid we didn't come up with any spectacular ideas. We did decide that we should each continue to do what we can. We can not afford to sit back. There are pockets of change in the air but there also needs to be changes in the hearts.
May you have a great day of worship tomorrow!
