  1. I learned last night of the passing of Bonita Sharp. We met her when she came to college while my husband was in school. She married Gene Sharp and they have had a ministry setting up radio stations all over the world. She leaves behind her husband, 5 kids, sister, parents, and a slew of friends. We know, as Christians, that she is in Glory. She kept her appointment and was ready to go, even though it was unexpected - a head-on collision in a rain storm. But the grief for those left behind is very real, as those of us who have lost loved ones know. Please pray for the family.
  2. I suppose "lesser of two evils" would be the same as "holding my nose as I vote?" heehee
  3. This is what I was referencing before about the power poles, although I wasn't sure that it was happening in WA...it is.
  4. It's raining! Praise the Lord! This is about the normal time of year that the rains begin, but it has been hoped and prayed for by so many of us now! I know it was raining a bit earlier near one of the fires, so I'm sure hoping and praying it rains all over the state (since there is no such thing as a global climate, there is no guarantee that it will rain all over... ), as well as in other western states.
  5. Hmm - I still see some coming across my feed. But I'm not surprised - they've been banning a lot lately. Did you get the notice that starting Oct. 1 they're going to be deciding if people's posts amount to enough to shut down the page? It's Zuckerberg's baby, so he can do that, but ridiculous.

  7. Now, along highway 101 - the highway that goes from our area all the way down CA (our area meaning that 101 curves around at our northern most point of the peninsula and heads south) - they have been finding power poles that the wind has blown over...these poles had transformers that popped and fires started. Thing is, at this pint there have been 18 - EIGHTEEN - found that were helped along by chain saws, to weaken them so that the wind would knock them over. That's arson. This graph is interesting...if the fires were from climate change, why do they stop at the borders? It couldn't be t
  8. In WA I believe they've caught 2-4...depending on whom one chooses to believe. They've found strategically placed glasses or glass jars with flammable stuff in them lying on the ground in the areas where the sun shines more this time of year (here something like that wouldn't work right now)...homemade magnifiers that, unless you're looking for arson equipment, you wouldn't normally pay attention to. Authorities believe that they've been placed there to start fires. This is not a new thing, apparently, although I've never heard of it til this year. Yeah, climate change. pffft! Our govern
  9. This video was taken a little over an hour ago in our town. We are on the outskirts of the town. I hope you can see the video.
  10. Global warming has absolutely nothing to do with these fires. Some of them are from human neglect, some from arson, and some from far-too-dense forests that don't allow the oxygen to disperse. Those forests are too dense because liberal "leaders" and eco-terrorists have pushed the idea of not clearing the forests - both thinning the trees and clearing the forest floor of the carbon which acts as fuel to fires that start. Add that to the natural lack of rain this time of year and you have conflagration. Yes, God did give us brains - and we most certainly should use them, not fall for the lies
  11. Well, we've had casualties now, because of the fires. And police have caught folks starting fires. Today the wind has brought the smoke from CA and OR fires to our area. It is not horribly uncomfortable here, for which I'm thankful. Hubs went over to the church, which sits in an area that has been marked as very bad air quality. He still has a lot of painting to do, so I'm hoping it's not very bad right where he'll be. Our governor has declared an emergency (he's become very fond of that since covid). But many, many folk are very cynical - because of his obvious lack of concern for the st
  12. We are literally burning! CA has over 3400 SQUARE MILES that have burned (just to give a little sense of distance, it's 2200 miles from here - Sequim, WA - to Indiana...). OR and WA are also burning. We have lost over 330,000 acres in just 24 hours here in WA. There are fires raging in other western states as well Now, I know someone will probably say that CA is reaping what the government has sown re: closing churches, etc. And that is quite likely. But I do know that it is also a mismanagement of land care by Democrat officials who like to claim environmental care (you know, tree hugger
  13. A number of years ago, we got cheeseburger pizza from Domino's. Not too bad. We even tried macaroni and cheese pizza - it was also not bad. My favorite from them, though, is pepperoni/onion/peppers, thin crust. But we prefer Papa Murphy's...on Tuesday's you can save $3 on most pizza. We like either the cowboy or the papa's favorite. I have had Pizza Hut's taco pizza years ago in Kentucky. It was really very good! The crust was thin so it crunched like a taco, and the toppings were taco toppings. I, too, like my tacos as tacos, but this was actually very good. There is a place here c
  14. This is Pastor Trieber's update from this morning: Newsom, CA's governor, said this virus was the opportunity to change society (not his exact words, but his meaning). He is proving it, as is our governor and some others.
  15. I don't have pictures of them yet, but hubs picked up our flags from the sign company. While he was there, he talked to the fellow about my mistake with the end quotes...and the guy made some for our sign! =D We'll be picking them up next Wednesday. I was pretty tickled about that!
  16. Today went well. No visitors...in fact, not many members came out, either. We are definitely going through a trying time... But it was such a blessing to have the Canavans in. God gave Bro. Andrew just the message I needed to hear. Our Sunday School girls fell in love with them, so I'm excited to "use" the Canavans to teach the kids about missions and witnessing. Today is our anniversary, and it was a joy to spend it the way we did. Tiring, but a joy. =D
  17. I'm very pleased with the work this company does. It is a local business, about 4 minutes from the church. They probably cost a bit more than some other companies, but I think if we can support the community it goes a long way towards a witness. They are the ones who designed the church's logo, which is at the top of both signs above. We have also ordered two 8-feet flags from them. One that says "Join us" and will go with our sign out by the road (because of where we meet, we cannot have permanent signage, so we have to put the sign out every week). The other will say "Welcome" and will be ri
  18. We had a good day all around. Busy, tiring, but good. The ladies enjoyed their time of fellowship. Mrs. Canavan spoke on being a hopeful woman - hoping in the Lord, waiting on Him, and not looking for hope in the wrong things. It was a blessing. My hubs and Andrew were out for about an hour and a half, and they aren't sure but think they were able to pass out at least 75 tracts. Just about everyone was friendly, and there was a good conversation with a young man who MAY come to church tomorrow.
  19. Well, there is some good news! Candle went in for another test, and they found no spot! So one of two things: God healed it, or it was a shadow the first time. They want her to have a bone scan, and she is praying about that. Great news, eh? But please keep praying for them both.
  20. Will do. We got our A-frame sign yesterday. It's beautiful (although the text I sent them left off the end quote of a verse, so they did - and I didn't catch it in the proofing! Ugh...thinking about putting an asterisk on the beginning quote LOL). I'm uploading them here so folks can see them. The sign itself is 3 feet or so tall and at least two feet wide. One picture fills one side, and the other fills the other side. The tract the men will be using is "Jesus is Coming Soon." My hubs felt that, given what is going on in the world today, it would be very appropriate.
  21. If said "truth" is anti-biblical, it's not truth...
  22. This coming weekend we will be having Andrew and Shawn Canavan in to present the field of Ireland (we have known Andrew since a baby, and Shawn for 14ish years, so are really excited). On Saturday, the 15th, the ladies will host an Irish tea with Shawn speaking. Our church is very tiny (seems to be growing smaller on a regular basis), so there won't be many ladies there, but I know it will be a blessing. While we are having our tea, my husband and Andrew will venture to downtown Port Townsend to do some street witnessing. We have ordered a sandwich sign (hopefully it will be ready
  23. The teaching of Lorship Salvation is what led to the heresy that repentance is a work, IMO. This is a quote from a man named David Stewart (no relation to my former brother-in-law. hehe). It sums it up pretty well. “Like an infectious disease, the heresy of Lordship Salvation is everywhere today. “Lordship Salvation” is the false teaching that acknowledging one's guilt of sin in the eyes of a holy God, and believing the Gospel are insufficient to save a person. In addition, proponents of Lordship Salvation teach that in order to be saved, a person must surrender their life in obedie
