Life awaits us!

Philippians 3:13-14 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

There are two kinds of birds that roam the desert: vultures and hummingbirds. The vulture thrives on a diet of rotting meat. He flies overhead searching for traces of leftover carcasses from slow-footed critters eaten by wild animals who’ve already had their fill.

Hummingbirds, on the other hand, will sweep through the desert, passing over all those repulsive, dead animals and seek colorful patches of beautiful wild desert flowers. They will suckle the delicious juices of those sweet desert blossoms and be satisfied.

While vultures look to the dead for their survival, the hummingbird seeks the living! Likewise, some of us unconsciously look to our past with its regrets, failures, and sins to keep us alive. We think that somehow by looking back to those dead things, we might find some motivation to keep surviving here and now. But let’s take a lesson from the hummingbird.

Let’s sweep past that which is dead and focus on the sweet new life — the exciting future that God holds for us as we continue seeking Him and moving forward in our relationship with Him!

Your family in the Lord with much agape love

Saudi Arabia will free vulture suspected of being ‘Mossad spy’

Well, just when you thought things couldn’t get any stranger in the Middle East they somehow do. The Islamic comedy circuit runs from North Africa with Gaddafi and his cohorts to the mad mullahs in Tehran to the strict hypocrites in Saudi Arabia. Recently we reported on our forums that Saudi Arabia had recently captured a vulture in a remote rural area that had a GPS monitor on it’s leg and that read “Tel Aviv University”. The Saudis “arrested” the vulture, yes, you got that right they “arrested” the vulture and accused him off being an Israeli “Mossad” agent. Talk about a barrel of laughs. The Middle East Islamists never fail to deliver a laugh.
