Shining the light of hope

Last days of summer

December 31, 1969
It has been a very hot summer.  Now that shools are open please drive carefully. Children are back in school and the buses are now on the roads again. Please don't  tail gate them so that you can come to a complete stop when they stop, for the safety of the children and others that are sharing the road with you.  Have a blessed and safe fall.

God's great mercy
I, Lorena Calar, was just reading about Noah and the Ark when I came to Genesis 7:16 and 21. At the end of 16, it reads "and the Lord shut them in." Verse 21 reads "And all flesh died that moved upon the face of the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, AND EVERY MAN (emphasis added)." If God had not sealed the Ark, His plan for cleansing the earth wouldn't have happened. If Noah had shut the door, he could have opened it to allow others in after hearing the terrifying cries and screams for help. Imagine hearing your own family members, parents, brothers, sisters, your best friend and you not being able to help them. This was not the fault of Noah nor of God. It was the fault of the the people themselves for not following the will of God.
