I've been praying

In comparison to the spending binge the incumbent guys that won went on in order to scare the voters because they have no record to run on other than tax and spend. You know the old you’ll lose your housing you’ll lose your job you won’t be able to vote in the building you’ll have to cross the street to vote, I was reminded of the scripture:


Mark 12:42:

42A poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which amount to a cent. 43Calling His disciples to Him, He said to them, “Truly I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all the contributors to the treasury; 44for they all put in out of their surplus, but she, out of her poverty, put in all she owned, all she had to live on.”

In these tough economic times those who gave of their time, talent and treasure are to be commended. Thank you Mary and Sheldon and all those who helped you, we really do appreciate your efforts. We know the money machine you are up against.

There are those in the community that still feel that if they still included in the fundraiser-pseudo-old Edgewater reunions sponsored by the money men in town that somehow they're players. Don't kid yourselves; the food may be better but you're still being bought for a glass of beer and a nitrate-filled hotdog. Which, by the way you pay for many times over and when you leave those in charge cannot believe how cheaply you come, literally and figuratively.

And for the fair-weather friends of Jesus who show up when they need him and forget that he's always there:

2 Timothy 3:1-5

Don't be naive. There are difficult times ahead. As the end approaches, people are going to be self-absorbed, money-hungry, self-promoting, stuck-up, profane, contemptuous of parents, crude, coarse, dog-eat-dog, unbending, slanderers, impulsively wild, savage, cynical, treacherous, ruthless, bloated windbags, addicted to lust, and allergic to God. They'll make a show of religion, but behind the scenes they're animals. Stay clear of these people.

Good Luck. You get the government you deserve.

Remember:

Matthew 19:23-24

Then Jesus said to his disciples, "I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God."

Right now those who are busy scheming more and more ways to bilk Edgewater of more and more millions don't feel this way. They're feeling a sense of validation but it's a false validation. Yep, that devil will prop you up for a real long time.

Luke 12:15

Guard yourselves and keep free from all covetousness (the immoderate desire for wealth, the greedy longing to have more); for a man's life does not consist in and is not derived from possessing overflowing abundance or that which is over and above his needs

Those who are overflowing in abundance let their egos get in the way, and those who receive the crumbs from those overflowing have deluded themselves into believing they have achieved success which proves somehow that they are better than the rest of us and that somehow they are right.

We'll see.

Left to their own devices with reverence for no one but their own pursuit of greed they will be the architects of their own demise.

They are hyenas and they will pick at each others bones in the end.
