Wasting our lives and glorifying God

Wasting our lives and glorifying God
Notice God's unutterable waste of saints, according to the judgment of the world. God plants His saints in the most useless places. We say - God intends me to be here because I am so useful. Jesus never estimated His life along the line of the greatest use. God puts His saints where they will glorify Him, and we are no judges at all of where that is. ~Oswald Chambers, My Utmost For His Highest, August 10

My! It's so hot here......and what am I doing in this hand-basket?

Today at the grocery store (no, not Whole Foods) a woman was handing out papers in the parking lot.  I thought it was coupons or something.  She handed one to me and said, "Would you like a copy of a Socialist newspaper?" 

"A what?" I asked, thinking I must have heard that incorrectly.

"A Socialist newspaper." she confirmed.

"Oh, no thank you!" I replied.  "Our founding fathers must be rollin' over in their graves!  And on the Fourth of July weekend, no less!"

She just walked away, mumbling to herself.

(By the way, the headline was something lauding Obama, just so you know.)


So what are YOUR patriotic plans this weekend?

I admire your quick wit, my dearest Daja... even when enduring the heat of summer as well as being heavy with child. I think of you often & pray for you daily. Sending lots of patriotic love & hugs across the miles this holiday & always.

Love you~ Andrea

P.S. Our "patriotic plans" this weekend entail mowing the lawn, grilling food outside, gathering with friends for a couple brews at our favorite country western joint around the corner, playing games in the driveway, visiting with whoever stops by, and going out to the cemetery to visit my Mama & Daddy... and making sure the flag on their grave is waving proudly for my Dad, a WWII veteran. God bless America & God heal America.

XOXOXOXOXOXOXO

See, I would take the flier because those cost the socialist organization MONEY to print. lol I'm an equal opportunity recycler; I have stuff from the wackiest churches you could ever imagine as well. :)

Andrea, I love you patriotic plans! We will do similarly.....have friends over to grill, everyone bringing something to share. I'll have some games for the kids and they'll be running through the sprinkler. Gonna enjoy some Samuel Adams, too. (Well, not me, specifically, but everyone else, I'm sure.)

Happy Elf, you are so clever! I totally should have taken it and said something like, "Oh, great! We are going camping soon and we need paper to use as fire starters! Can I have several copies?" That would've been a hoot!

Sometimes freedom isn't all we expect it to be.
