      Psalms 119:1-8                                         Sep. 5 - Oct. 2, 2019
      1 ALEPH. Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD.
      2 Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.
      3 They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways.
      4 Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently.
      5 O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!
      6 Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments.
      7 I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments.
      8 I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly.
      The following verse stood out to me...
      5 O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!
      At first glance it seemed to me this person’s soul is poured out with intense desire to have God’s direction in keeping His Word.
      I made a small wood fire in our backyard for my granddaughter, Julia, since she would be staying overnight with us. My wife and Julia stayed outside at the fire for about half an hour. Then, I found myself alone to watch the fire die out on a particularly lovely evening. So I took my verse from above and began to repeat it for memorization. As I repeated the verse, I tried to contemplate the words and apply them to what I was seeing around me. 
      The moon and stars were out now peering through the scattered clouds above.
      [Genesis 1:16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. Genesis 1:17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, Genesis 1:18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.]
      Thought 1         
      The moon has stayed his course since the day God created him, also the stars, obeying the statutes directed by God from the first day they were created. Can you imagine God’s direction to the Moon and stars, “moon you will have a path through the sky above the earth, stars you will occupy the firmament above the moon and be clearly visible in the cloudless night sky.”
      Then, the trees, grass, even the air we breathe obey the statues God gave them from the beginning. None of these creations have souls, none have hearts, none have intelligence, but they all observe God’s statutes, His instructions for their limited time on earth.
      Thought 2
      What if we were like the moon, stars, trees, grass, or the other creations which have no soul? We would be directed to keep God’s statutes without choosing to keep them. This is not the image of God, there would be no dominion over other creatures, or over the earth. We would not be capable of experiencing the joy and peace of learning the love of God
      Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
      Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
      Thought 3 (October 2, 2019)
      Is the psalmist pleading God to force God’s statutes to become the man’s ways? No, he is speaking of his own failure in keeping God’s statutes and his desire to keep them, very much like Paul in Romans 7:14-25.
      God doesn’t work through force to turn men from their ways that they would desire His statutes or desire God Himself. Men must reject (repent) put aside his own ways and voluntarily seek God and His statutes.

The percentage rate that has been floated my way by some people state that between 5 & 10 percent of the public has experienced the Wuhan Flu. I don't know that this is accurate. I haven't really sat down to figure it out...I'm more concerned with the percentage of people who recover who DO contract it. 

I don't think we will ever know the answer to that, not when toddlers who die from physical injuries are included in the covid death count.  They need to stop paying hospitals extra for covid cases.

At my age/health,  the recovery rate is a bit less, but I'd really like to know how much of a chance that I actually have of contracting  it, not just recovering from it..  Can't seem to find that number anywhere.  I am pro vaccine, but Not at all sure about getting this new vaccine

More than 99.99% of people fully vaccinated against Covid-19 have not had a breakthrough case resulting in hospitalization or death, according to the latest data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The data highlights what leading health experts across the country have highlighted for months: Covid-19 vaccines are very effective at preventing serious illness and death from Covid-19 and are the country’s best shot at slowing the pandemic down and avoiding further suffering.

Divide those severe breakthrough cases by the total fully vaccinated population for the result: less than 0.004% of fully vaccinated people had a breakthrough case that led to hospitalization and less than 0.001% of fully vaccinated people died from a breakthrough Covid-19 case.

Most of the breakthrough cases – about 74% – occurred among adults 65 or older.

If you stay away from people who are coughing, sneezing and spitting then you won't catch either vovid or the variant    

It's possible that's true, but highly unlikely. Besides, not all people who cough, as I do because of COPD and asthma, and sneeze like my wife and I do because of seasonal allergies, have covid, nor carry the virus. We have to face facts...most people are living in fear of something that PROBABLY won't kill them. It may make them uncomfortable for a while like a cold or flu do...but, that's about it.

And again...Government manipulated statistics from fellow left-winged hacks like CNN. Typical. I'll keep repeating 99.7% recovery rate, inflated death #'s allegedly from "Covid" when most just have "Covid" as contributing factor with the underlying conditions as primary. Keep trying to instill fear in people, BB...you're not very good at it, but, keep trying! 😉

This vaccine is brand new, and although it may or may not be cutting down the chances of people getting the virus etc, nobody knows for how long and what the long term effects of this vaccine is.  Just heard that during one of the delta outbreaks that 72% of the hospitilized patients had been fully vaccinated.  Any meds you put into your body adversely affect you, and this vaccine goes way beyond medicine

One cannot get this virus unless they have been around an infected person who coughed, sneezed or spit on or around them for more than 15 minutes.  I have been back at church for over a year with hundreds of unmasked, unvaccinated people and no outbreaks.  Real life proves the fearmongers are wrong.

The coughing, sneezing or spitting are not necessary components in contracting this virus. Someone can contract it just by being in the same enclosed space with an infected person for 15 minutes or more. I know many doctors, have many nephews and nieces who are NPs or nurses. They say  that yes, you can contract it through being around someone who's infected who has coughed, sneezed or spit, but you can also contract it the same way I mentioned. I have been around people who've done these things, and I've been tested several times...every time with the result of negative.

So I finally know of someone close to me that got the Fauci virus. My sister. They gave her an antibiotic and she spent two days in bed with what amounted to a sinus infection. 

As far as my mother, she is back home. One doctor admitted the blood clots could had come from the vaccine especially since they did not originate in her legs. The other doctor who was a shill for the government refused to admit it.

Go ahead, ban the maskless and/or unvaccinated and watch more businesses tank. The billionaires will thank you.

That's one of the major goals of this "pandemic"....the continued transfer of wealth from the middle class to the wealthy. It's been going on for ages, but has ramped up through this "pandemic." Shameful!

BB, those people who don't let people in without masks can do without our business...I'm not worried about them. Thankfully, most of what I need doesn't come from a supermarket. We've been blessed to be able to live on a minimalist basis. I don't need a whole lot, and neither does my wife. Funny cartoon. I don't see anyone here saying the coronavirus is a hoax, so your post is more in the way of hyperbole on your part.

Of course it's necessary , it isn't a bug that crawls or hangs in the air infinitely. It must be excreted though the nose or mouth just like any other covid virus and breathed in for a length of time  just like any other virus

It ISN'T necessary. Natural respiration still expels vapor from the mouth and nose.

Not enough to infect someone unless they are on top of the infected person, otherwise everyoneone in the same family would catch it and they don't. Nobody breaths that hard

Incorrect. Think you'd better consult a doctor or nurse about this. I'm related to several and know better.

In a tiny hospital cubicle surrounded by curtains it may very well be possible for anyone enclosed in there for 15 minutes to get enough of a viral load to infect them, but in normal conditions no. There may even be a case or two infected that way, but I doubt it The head of nursing at my church wouldn't even wear a mask at church

In a room 10x24 it is possible to contract the virus through ordinary respiration...at least that is the guidance given by local health officials in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee,  and Georgia that I have spoken to. I have family in all of those states and have talked to health officials before making trips to these areas...I live in Tennessee. Most of the medical personel I know wear masks in the hospitals because it is mandated for healthcare workers to do so...but most of them will not wear them in church, restaurants, grocery or other shopping outlets. My own ear, nose and throat specialist and I have talked about this many times, and he stated several times that depending on the depth of ones respiration, it will affect how far a virus will travel and how long it can hang in the air. He should know since he deals with it every day.

Let me know if you hear of any confirmed cases that was transmitted that way. Remember the health officials said we needed to disinfect our packages too lol

There are many who have, I am sure. It would be pretty hard to track them down, just as it would hard to track down and varify those you say got it through someone coughing, spitting or wheezing on them...UGH!

Well I know of many that got infected from coughers, sneezes, spitters, but none from breathers. I don't know any that got any virus that way anything is possible I suppose

How can you state "None from breathers."?. I know many who got it from being around people coughing, sneezing, spitting or wheezing as well...but that doesn't rule out ordinary respiration. To try and rule that out is just unrealistic!

Doesn't rule it out, but there isn't any proof it happens either. Although I suppose if my husband had that fake asymptomatic stuff and I slept with him while he was snoring..........
