Seeds from the Sower

Body
A patient once cried, “I have no faith in doctors!” “That’s all right, ma’am,” said the physician, “my dog has no faith in the vet, but I take him and he gets cured.” Faith is a vital force for our salvation. The Bible states, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Chirst and you will be saved.” That takes faith in God’s Word.

White as Snow

What fun to watch the kids building snowmen, having snowball fights, and sledding down hills on Sunday (we found the best hill at the track)! And not just the kids. There were a bunch of adults who took part in the winter festivities! My wife, Jan, kept making a truce with me to not throw snowballs at each other, only to break the truce on multiple occasions! Of course, I reciprocated. Our poor snowman was still standing this morning but leaning heavily to the left, as if looking around a tree. Snow simply lightens the heart and puts a smile on the face!

We have heard some tell us that because of the COVID virus and other things taking place that these are the signs of the end times. Some are telling us the prophecies of the Bible are coming true at this time. Well, let me get in on the discussion.

La Palabra de Dios Dice

Body
Salmos 105:1-15 Alabad a Jehová, invocad su nombre; Dad a conocer sus obras en los pueblos. Cantadle, cantadle salmos; Hablad de todas sus maravillas. Gloriaos en su santo nombre; Alégrese el corazón de los que buscan a Jehová. Buscad a Jehová y su poder; Buscad siempre su rostro. Acordaos de las maravillas que él ha hecho, De sus prodigios y de los juicios de su boca, Oh vosotros, descendencia de Abraham su siervo, Hijos de Jacob, sus escogidos. El es Jehová nuestro Dios; En toda la tierra están sus juicios. Se acordó para siempre de su pacto; De la palabra que mandó para mil generaciones, La cual concertó con Abraham, Y de su juramento a Isaac. La estableció a Jacob por decreto, A Israel por pacto sempiterno, Diciendo: A ti te daré la tierra de Canaán Como porción de vuestra heredad. Cuando ellos eran pocos en número, Y forasteros en ella, Y andaban de nación en nación, De un reino a otro pueblo, No consintió que nadie los agraviase, Y por causa de ellos castigó a los reyes. No toquéis, dijo, a mis ungidos, Ni hagáis mal a mis profetas.

Anne's Musings

Body
This past week, I asked a group to pray for our country because of the disgraceful riot (shots, deaths, pipe bombs, vandalism) which was occurring at the U. S. Capitol. One lady immediately challenged my innocuous petition for prayer with a justification for the insurrection. She pointed out that she was a military wife, and I did not understand. I calmly reminded her that my husband too was military, and I do know of what I speak.

Hill Country Naturalist

Aldo Leopold (1887-1948) was a forester, a conservationist, a teacher, a hunter, a naturalist and an extremely talented and prolific writer who lived in the first half of the twentieth century. He is most famous for writing “A Sand County Almanac,” although he also wrote a textbook on game management and over 500 articles, essays and papers on all aspects of conservation and the natural world. He cofounded the Wilderness Society and served on many state and national boards and commissions as well as the boards of several conservation organizations.

Happy Herman's Hideaway

Body
Hello there, my San Saba snow birds! Can you believe twice in less than two weeks we have seen the flakes fall from the sky and cover the ground of central Texas? Has someone put the puzzle of the United States together incorrectly and placed Texas where it does not belong? My Facebook friends keep asking me if I have gone out to play in the white stuff, and to me, that is like asking me if I would like to have a nice dip in a bath filled with ice! The answer would be, no! If you want to know the truth, I have been having my meals sent to the couch so I might eat them under the comfort of my blanket. I tried to talk mom into devising a porta-potty, and yet she insisted on making me venture outside to do my business; such cruelty!
