Don't Blame God - Billy Graham's daughter Anne Graham

Blame Ourselves for the World's Problems, its NOT God's Fault!!

WISDOM: Like Father - Like Daughter


Billy Graham's daughter was interviewed on the Early Show and Jane Clayson
asked her "How could God let something like this happen?" (Regarding the
attacks on Sept. 11).
Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response. She said "I
believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we've
been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and
to get out of our lives. And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has
calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His
protection if we demand He leave us alone?"
In light of recent events...terrorists attack, school shootings,
etc. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O'Hare (she was murdered, her
body found recently) complained she didn't want prayer in our schools,
and we said OK.
Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school... the Bible says
thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself.
And we said OK.
Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when they
misbehave because their little personalities would be warped and we might
damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock's son committed suicide). We
said an expert should know what he's talking about.
And we said OK.
Then someone said teachers and principals better not discipline our
children when they misbehave. The school administrators said no faculty
member in this school better touch a student when they misbehave because we
don't want any bad publicity, and we surely don't want to be sued (there's
a big difference between disciplining, touching, beating, smacking,
humiliating, kicking, etc.).
And we said OK.
Then someone said, let's let our daughters have abortions if they want, and
they won't even have to tell their parents.
And we said OK.
Then some wise school board member said, since boys will be boys and
they're going to do it anyway, let's give our sons all the condoms they want
so they can have all the fun they desire, and we won't have to tell their parents
they got them at school.
And we said OK.
Then some of our top elected officials said it doesn't matter what we do in
private as long as we do our jobs. Agreeing with them, we said it doesn't
matter to me what anyone, including the President, does in private as long
as I have a job and the economy is good.
Then someone said let's print magazines with pictures of nude women and
call it wholesome, down-to-earth appreciation for the beauty of the female body.
And we said OK.
And then someone else took that appreciation a step further and published
pictures of nude children and then further again by making them available
on the Internet.
And we said OK, they're entitled to free speech.
Then the entertainment industry said, let's make TV shows and movies that
promote profanity, violence, and illicit sex. Let's record music that
encourages rape, drugs, murder, suicide, and satanic themes.
And we said it's just entertainment, it has no adverse effect, nobody takes it
seriously anyway, so go right ahead.
Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they
don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to kill
strangers, their classmates, and themselves.
Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out.
I think it has a great deal to do with "WE REAP WHAT WE SOW."

TEMPTATION BEWARE

I am sure many of you are contacted via email or on social media by an unknown member of the opposite sex.



Many lonely people (and some married ones) fall under the spell of these scammers, who are not honest but just after money. Some gullible people have been bled dry!

I am so tired of writing in return, "I am happily married and 73 years old, I am not interested in connecting with anyone with a view to more (whatever)...."

Some of the answers I get are, "age doesn't matter, I just want to be your friend (wink wink)." OR,  "You are so beautiful, can't we still be friends?"

REALLY!! No we can't, not with what you have in view.

I have been contacted by women who want money and straight out lie about the reason.
But one such woman wrote to me saying she wanted to attend a Christian conference and had already received $150 yet still needed $70 more.

WHAT?? That's an expensive conference, who did she think she was fooling.

I think of my wonderful mother who raised five of us alone. She asked no one for anything, we just went without what we couldn't afford to have. Mum made our clothes even out of old curtain material - as her girls in this photo.

I am the smallest girl. 


My husband is contacted by countless women. How shameful.
The evil inside these people is camouflaged with a pretty face and lying mouth.


Women are also deceived.


Finally..... Heed good advice.

The Desire of a Woman

Most women desire to be beautiful and they certainly want to be loved.

What is beauty?  Is it in youth? Is it in the painted face and toned body?

Is it in the beauty of the eyes?


Or in the beauty of riches?


Or in the natural face?



There are different ways to see and describe beauty.







A Love that Lasts for Eternity - is Real Love. Real Beauty.


A TRUE BEAUTY.

The Secret Millionaire - Nadim Sadek



Making the world a better place.
We can all make a difference and its got nothing to do with being rich. It's more about understanding the downtrodden and doing what we can to help.

The Phenomenon of Death

Are you afraid to die?


SOUL and SPIRIT leaving the body.


So many of us think of death as the END.

My own Christian mother had a terror of it, yet as she reached the time when she was to go at 98years old  she welcomed it. She even had a Christian nurse pray for God to take her home.
Before she left for Glory she continually asked me, "Tell me about Heaven.".

So I would tell her everything I'd read in the Bible about its beauty. I would tell her what I had heard from the many people who had had an out-of-the-body experience, and how they loved Heaven.
I told her of the rivers of gold, the glorious perfection and how these people never wanted to return to earth.

As a teenager I was often afraid of this unknown phenomenon. I would picture myself in a coffin under the ground unable to get out, mistakenly buried alive.

I am sure many of you readers may have experienced some of the same fears!!

Why do we cling so strongly to wanting to remain in this world??

Yes! God made a beautiful world, that's undeniable.

Yet, many evil people have also made it ugly, with violence and hatred.


The  thievery, brutality, violence and killing of people they don't even know.

The cold uncaring hearts that revel in this idiocracy.


When our beloved sick are suffering. We pray for them to live. We want to keep them with us.
Do we pray for their reason?  OR do we pray for our own!

The Apostle Paul, when an old man, and chained to a guard in a dank cold prison, said this.

 "But if I live,
I can do more fruitful work for Christ.
So I really don’t know which is better.
I’m torn between two desires:
I long to go and be with Christ, which would be far better for me. 





But for your sakes, it is better that I continue to live.
Knowing this, I am convinced that I will remain alive so I can continue to help all of you grow and experience the joy of your faith." Philippians 1:22-25 (NLT) checked that (KJV is same)





AT DEATH

Our body goes to sleep in the earth.
Our Spirit (created in God's image) goes to Heaven - when we are His believers.
Our Soul (the us, who we are, our personality) returns to God.

Eternity is forever.
Forever in heaven or forever in hell.

Choose God, read the New Testament first if you are unfamiliar with the Bible.

God Bless You.

Evil Can Look beautiful

Do you know that there is a beautiful side to evil??

YES! the devil can appear as a beautiful angel of light, looking so wonderful on the outside that many are deceived.

Yet its the heart that matters, and we can't see that.


Only God can.

Narcissistic Personality Disorders are on the rise.
What are the primary traits of such people?

Firstly: they love themselves before all else, even above their children.

"For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy." 2 Timothy 3:2    K.J.Bible

Secondly: The have a grandiose opinion of themselves.  They expect to be first and foremost in everything.


"For who makes you to differ from another? and what have you that you did not receive? now if you did receive it, why do you glory, as if you had not received it?" 1 Cor 4:7

Outside beauty with a poisonous heart.: 1 Peter 3:4-6 but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.
These people do their best to make you feel good in the beginning, and then 
Cleverly, they make you feel everything you do is stupid, or wrong. If you remain with them long enough you will loose your identity and all self esteem. 


Woman get away with this more than men because the law believes they are the abused one.
Unless the law is taught differently, men will mainly be the victim.

What of the children??? They are dressed beautifully to impress. Given toys and many photos taken to display the falsehood of happiness.


Yes, Beauty is not always what you see.
