Everything Sad Will Be Made Untrue

This really is the truth... bad things will ultimately be made good.  This is our hope.  When we witness miracles or Godwinks (sometimes confused with coincidences)...we are witnessing heaven on earth.  I think it's a glimpse of what's to come.  God gives us examples everyday of what life in heaven with Him will be like.  Pope John Paul II will be made a Saint in a few months.  A woman in Costa Rica was suffering from an incurable brain aneurysm.  Her family made a shrine to Blessed Pope John Paul II and prayed for his intercession to cure her.  While watching his Beatification (the Latin meaning of blessed) on TV....she looked at a picture of him that was in a magazine that she was reading.  She immediately heard the words..."Get up and do not be afraid."  She was cured.  Did you know that the phrase "do not be afraid" is mentioned 365 times in the bible?  Let us be still and take notice.

Independence Day

As we celebrate the birth of our nation,  let us not forget the words of our forefathers….
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and pursuit of Happiness: that to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”
~ The Declaration of Independence (1776)
