...will never be destroyed from the outside.

If we falter and lose our freedoms,
it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

--Abraham Lincoln

Oh, I actually get to be first?! That hasn't happened in a long time. Such true words, he knew exactly what he was talking about. And look how long ago that was--such wisdom! You do such a great job of combining photography, and words, Bethany!

Love to you!

By the way, I love your new profile picture! It is so fun! :)

That is so true. I am from Canada, but that still rings true for us as well.
Mar 3:24 "And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand."

We are all looking forward to having your family at our church. I love your new look!
God bless!

Those are very wise words. What our country needs, now more than ever, is God!

'If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.' 2 Chronicles 7:14

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the feedback on my new profile picture...I was pretty tickled with it considering it is a self portrait! I don't always do very good on those.... [grin]
A very clean mirror is the first step!!

That's a wonderful idea (about the mirror). I thought of that before but I never got around to it - I like that picture of you, by the way! :)
