Evil among Us.

But now thus says the Lord, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the Lord your God,  the Holy One of Israel, your Savior."

Isaiah 43:1-3



Evil among Us.

The other day Mike and I went out to dinner at Maggiano's with another couple.   We chatted away at the table for three hours!  I also took Boone.  He is growing up way too fast, and I just like him tagging along. 

Boone behaved the entire time.  At first he drew pictures.  After dinner he played in the butter smashing it into the plate.  He mixed his salad with his ice cream and called it "a healthy shake."  The entire time the adults were jabbering Boone hardly interrupted or even made a noise. 
I knew making a 9 y.o. sit there that long was asking a whole lot.  So, I did something I NEVER do.  I handed him my cell phone to play with.  He couldn't tear it up only a few inches away from me.  I do have a nice cell.  My kids think it is a total waste.  I probably use about 10% of what it can do.    

At first Boone made a few phone calls.  He told Stafan to take the dog out.  He told Lyric and Cokie to get their baths.  Then he called Bret a few times to get under her skin.

Well, when we were about ready to leave,  I took my cell back.  It was oily from our Italian meal and his greasy little hands.  I expected that!  But, what I didn't expect was the full blown pornographic picture staring back at me!  And it was stuck on the picture!  I couldn't get it off!  Then, I realized Boone was desperately trying to get it off too!  

I showed it to our friends.  Their mouths dropped open.  Mike had gone to the restroom.  I asked the man we were eating with to "GET IT OFF THERE!"  He didn't want to touch it and his face was red.  He whispered, "Have Mike do it."  About then Mike came back, but at the same time I got the picture off.  I whispered in Mike's ear what the picture was.  Now Mike's mouth dropped open.

We got up to leave.  I had never seen Boone so quiet, confused and bewildered looking.  I knew he didn't know if he was in trouble or not.  I didn't know what to do or say.  I finally whispered, "that stuff will RUIN your mind."  Then we let it drop.  Boone was happy on the way home knowing he wasn't branded for life or even blamed.  : - )  He was still unusually quiet though. 

I'm disgusted that our society has gotten to where we can't even protect our child sitting a few inches away from us.  I'm disgusted that Donald Trump is fine with Bruce Jenner going to the restroom with our daughters.  And Hillary!  She is even worse!  I'm disgusted Target wants grown men using the restroom with my daughters or me!  Seriously!  This country has gone insane.

But the absolute truth is everyone will exist eternally either in heaven or hell.
Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt.  Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.  

Daniel 12:2-3

Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.

Matthew 25:46

Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice.

John 5:28

Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire.  And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.  

Revelation 20:14-15


Pretty sure you won't find this in the lake of fire.

Or this, but I bet I find it in Heaven where I'm going!
