Joel Rosenberg helps me think about things

I realize this may not seem to relate directly to "the journey" of home educators, but it does. Trust me. Well, trust God, above all. And trust others, who are much wiser than I am, please!! But Joel Rosenberg is one you will find you can trust, ... at least so far...... I find his analysis of news, and his sharing of articles and information as it relates to current news is helping me much, to keep up with particular "issues" we are following, in our "social studies" at home. We keep up with world news, news from Israel ( I am not ashamed to say I am pro-Israel ! ... all the way. They are still God's chosen people. No one has replaced them! So, let's pray for The Peace of Jerusalem, as God commands we do, using Psalm 122: 6 to remind us to! And let's do what The Lord enables us to do, to help the needy in Israel, and "within our own communities, around the world." ). Maybe it's just my "bent."

News! I used to hear it, read it, watch some of it, ... even tried to make it, at times, by learning to snow ski after age 33!, and falling down wooden stairs, breaking my tailbone, and yet, not receiving any obvious damage, since God "covered it up" (I call it healing!!) within a short time, and have never had trouble since then! (Amen!). I've tried to drive a small car into a concrete guard rail ... well, okay, it was a true accident, that I did not plan. Was actually trying my best to avoid hitting the car in front of me, on my side of an 8-lane highway ... filled with stop-and-go traffic, during a rush hour. oh well ....

But God allowed it ... for my good. I quit the job I was on my way to, that day. ha ha! You know? It *is* weird sitting there in a car, with blood on your forehead, wondering how long it will take for an ambulance to get to you, through 4 lanes of cars just sitting there mostly, not moving, ... and then, when they arrive, all they want to know is "do you know what today's date is?" They did ask some other basic questions. I was actually fine, but had a headache; my windshield was pooched out ... enough to make them real scared. I was not scared. Just wanted them to "get on with things." ;o) (big grin) So, after they asked me things I already knew the answers to, since I had (sorry to say) watched traffic accident victims being asked these sorts of things, so I was ready, ... well, they finally took me to a hospital. I was by myself, in the car, thanks to God. Now, I only have a very few reminders of that accident. God is such a good healer!!! He truly is The Great Physician! He is YHVH Rophe, The Lord Who healeth thee!! Let's praise His Holy Name!!

God is so fun to get to know -- He still loves me, even though He's let the enemy "try hard" to kill me more than a few times, honestly. Fell off a galloping horse, long ago, and ... was just fine. Weird?! Oh well... Those are a few stories, to show God is with us, no matter what, but ..
we should watch what's going on, in the world news, using websites, and blogs, to do it, ... trusted sites ... when possible. Right? Of course right! (borrowed from Fiddler on the Roof)

I consider some "world news" studies to fall within the category of world history, since it is, each day, "in the making." Those who keep up with it, may feel like they're in a tornado ... that's carrying them along at too fast a pace, since Jan 20, 2009. But most of this stuff has been "in the planning portfolios" of some folks, for well over 100 years! However, rather than taking you through that bit o' history, you may wish to visit, among other very good sites, some that Joel Rosenberg has set up, to keep those who read his books, and know of him, informed, ... on some topics he covers, at these two sites. I found them quite informative, with links to the sources he is getting the stories from. That always helps, as you well know.

Well, considering that my name is probably already on "one of the 3 lists," ... designated by "color names," within the US, I'd rather be moving, real soon, to Israel. I'd rather die there, than in a land with a man who won't (refuses to !) prove his citizenship status. And our U S justice system is failing to force people like him to do such a thing in a timely fashion. Cover-ups. Deception. Lies. The rich elite. Lovers of power. Those who want control. Corrupt businessmen. Corrupt politicians. (and more) And I'm just honest enough to make folks aware of it, thanks to the news stories I follow on World Net Daily. If you check "news" on their website, you'll stay informed, on many ''fronts.''

I am ready to die. But would like to do it while helping some folks who need some real help, and who may not, yet, know where they will "be found" when they die, ... especially afterward. I know where I will be. If they don't, then my prayer is that The Lord will put me in a place where I can tell "someone (!!)" who wants to know, over there. But in the meantime, I will be ready to give an answer for the Hope that is in me, with meekness and fear.

Well, I can manage most of the meekness attitude, but Yeshua will have to fill in the rest for me, putting it within me, by His Mighty Power, since I depend on Him for everything, and I usually mess up, when I try to do anything. Whenever I do anything "right," I know it was Him Who did it through me! Amen! He is my all in all!
The Lord of lords! The King of kings!
And no one-world currency can provide like He can!
And no one-world army can protect me like He can!
And ... no leader, anywhere, can lead like He does -- He's The Good Shepherd, Who takes care of me, a sheep in His fold.

Rejoice today that your name is written in The Lamb's Book of Life!

Support the people of Israel!!! They need your prayers!

Federation of Jewish Communities in the CIS

Below are two links to a website ... which includes / shares about "folks" who need our support and prayers:

The Federation of Jewish Communities in the CIS (what we call the former Soviet Union)

The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, helping the needy ...

We believers in the US and Canada should not only pray for all who put their trust in The One, True God, YHVH (YHWH), but we should also share our beliefs and our "new life" in the promised Messiah, Who has come, and ... yet, respect what they've been taught, by those who love them, and want them to know The Lord YHVH (YHWH), The I AM, The Most High, The Almighty.

God is The Lord!
Messiah Yeshua is The Lord!

I realize I must pray for the (Shalom) Peace of Jerusalem (Yerushalayim)! We must support the Jewish / Hebrew people, in every way The Lord enables us to, ... especially in prayer!
It's a command. The Lord, our Father in Heaven, will honor us if we honor Him! And He commands us to "bless" those who are the children of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Avraham, Yitzhak and Yaakov) -- from Genesis 12: 2 - 3. Be blessed! (by The Lord) And bless others! (for His sake and for His glory)

I pray The Lord will show these people how to find "the true freedom" they seek, and the Truth they want to live by. He is "Yeshua" -- The Way, The Truth, and The Life. No man can come to The Father except by Him. He is The Lamb of God (YHVH), Who shed His Blood on "the tree," to pay the debt we owed because of our sins and iniquities, ... and He paid it all. Now, we can be re-born in Him, through His faithfulness, by surrendering our lives, trusting in Yeshua as our Messiah (Savior, Deliverer), because He is, and has done all that's necessary to put our names in The Book of Life. !

The Homeschool Lounge -- what a blessing!

For moms who choose to follow what many of us call "a conviction" The Lord has given to us (put within us) and educate our children at home, ... The Homeschool Lounge is a great place to encourage and help others, ... and receive the same from other moms.

A link to go to the site is below.
You must "join in," in order to go "into" the site, though, to receive the benefits, and new friendships, offered there.

Join us, there, if you wish. It is up to you. ;o)

I am so thankful to the "founders" there, for setting up this "avenue" to edify, exhort, encourage and ... help others! It has blessed me! And I hope The Lord is honored by what He sees me doing "over there."

God is so Good! His Mercy endures for ever! And His Truth is everlasting!
Call upon The Lord, Who is worthy to be praised! So shall (you, and me) we be saved from our enemies!
His Name is to be praised!
And He is able to deliver us from ... all evil!

And He, through "His divine Power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto Life and Godliness, through the Knowledge of Him that hath called us to Glory and Virtue:" -- as The Lord shares with us in the second epistle of Peter, chapter 1, verse 3.

Praise His Holy Name!
Rejoice that your name is in The Book of Life!
... it cannot get better than this! ....

Helpful "news" and "alerts" sites you may want to visit

It has helped me much, in wanting to keep up with news that other news sources just "don't offer," to look for US and world news updates on World Net Daily.

There are two links below, for World Net Daily -- one for page 1, as they call it, and one for page 2, on their site.

When you can, though I realize we moms keep quite busy, ... it is helpful to check "the news" from sources we can trust to provide us with news that has "our interest" as American citizens (actually "able to prove we were born within the United States, and we can show our birth certificates....") in mind.

Eagle Forum has kept me informed, through email newsletters, on several topics of interest, pertaining to "families" in the U.S., as well as "education," and "political" alerts I want to receive.

Visit Phyllis Schlafly's very informative, very helpful website, any time you are able to. And sign up to receive legislative updates, and alerts, ... if you wish. I like choosing to receive those alerts and information updates, because it saves me much time, ... with a busy schedule.

God is good! He even puts Godly people into positions of "sharing news" with us, that we need, to make wise decisions, and He gives them wisdom, to discern "what" to share, and ... what it's necessary to provide "forms" for, in contacting our legislators, to tell them what we want them to vote for, or against.
