What a world

Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing? Psalm 2:1

What is this world coming to. I didn’t put a question mark after that sentence because it’s not really a question. And then I didn’t put an exclamation point after it, because it is not said in surprise or excitement or even horror. It’s more that it’s said in resignation. Sometimes, I must admit, it is said (or thought) with a good bit of sadness.

The world that my first grandchild is coming into is not a very pretty picture, really. It’s one in which trying to board an airplane has become one of the most complicated events under the sun. Yes, it’s one where men are so bent on evil that even a tube of toothpaste cannot be considered safe. Or even shampoo. Or lipstick. They think that perhaps a jar of baby food is, but I’m not so sure of that either.

But I still stand by my last entry where I talked about the weather. We can’t for one minute think that our God is not in control. If it were not for believing that, I would despair at our little Selena coming into such a place as this. But we have the truths of the second Psalm and the first chapter of Romans, and all that good stuff. So we know what’s really going on. And we’ll make sure she knows as she grows.

Well, even though the world may not be such a great place, we live in a different realm, thanks be to Jesus. I know her daddy and mommy will do their best to protect her from the evils of this present age, and we’ll sure try to help.

That’s all I have to say today.

Yes, our world is a pretty scary place, but thanks to Jesus Christ, we don't have to be worried and anxious! I feel for unbelievers- if they don't have Christ, they have no peace in this world.

Ditto what Sara said!

Isn't it sad when a terrorist is willing to use her own baby to cover her crime? We must pray diligently. Praise God we know He is in charge. Otherwise, it would be too scary to imagine.

Sorry dear, but as I told you,I will not be able to manage much more than one a week. I do have one coming tomorrow though! It's just getting to it that's sometimes difficult. Thanks for spurring your old mama on!
