taking a walk on the trail
my son chases him
I saw a peck of counterfeit dollars once. Did I go to the window and throw away all my good dollars? No! Yet you reject Christianity because there are hypocrites, or counterfeit Christians. –William E. Biderwolf
I have a book of old Christian quotes. I don’t know who most of the people are, but the sayings in the book of 10,000 positive quotes are amazing.
I belong to a Women on Mission group (a group under the purview of WMU). We held a WorldCrafts party last year to bring awareness to human trafficking, or the fact that there are sex slaves here in the USA today. It doesn’t just happen in Asia, there are women who are forced to be prostitutes here in our cities in America. Kansas City is a major hub for trading the girls, and Oklahoma City is where a lot of kids/women are kidnapped from. Miami and other coastal cities are also major hubs for bringing in girls from other countries.
Our party was a Set1Free party and we held it at our church. We showed the women that attended a video of the women who make the products then encouraged them to buy the products marked “Set1Free” so that women trying to get out of prostitution, and the women already rescued from the slave trade, could find employment. I would encourage you to click on the links in this post and consider hosting a party yourself. There are products made by several people who need help staying employed in 3rd World Countries, such as the HIV positive and those who are deaf. WorldCrafts also employees women who are not allowed to work for companies in their home country simply because they are women. Their husbands have died and they have children to feed but no one will hire them. WorldCrafts builds a shop and employees them. Buying products from WorldCrafts keeps the demand for their work up, and if the demand for the products increase, then they can hire more women.
At least – to pray – is left – is left –
Oh Jesus – in the Air –
I know not which thy chamber is –
I’m knocking – everywhere –
Thou settest Earthquake in the South –
And Maelstrom, in the Sea –
Say, Jesus Christ of Nazareth –
Hast thou no Arm for Me?
I have days like this occasionally. How about you?
How’s lent going for those of you who are practicing this year?

This is the last Acrostic Friday, but make sure to come back! I will have a formal poem next Friday.
After this 30 Day Challenge is over I am going to begin a new series on Wednesdays.
I really thought about the words I choose for this poem. I thought about them carefully, consulting the dictionary and thesaurus. “Nice” may seem like a common word and it’s not a ‘punchy’ word to end on- but I think it was important that I used it. Because that is what the majority of our rules, or laws, boil down to as a Christian.
Love is what Christianity is about, but there is no L in Christian.
Is there a word up there that you don’t think belongs?
Is there a word that you think would have fit better?
