Comfort can be dangerous and lead to lazy

10/6/13 Sunday
        Rascal is having a better day today. Yesterday I had to carry him to the front room because he was too weak to walk. The smell emanating from the tumors has been getting hard to handle so we decided to keep him in the front room at night. This way we hope to get a better nights rest. What you see on the wall in this picture is blood from the biggest tumor. It is hard to watch your loved pet die for sure but we know people who have watched husbands, children, and others they love endure great hardship as disease took them away. The hard part for us is we will have to make the decision when Rascal no longer has a quality of life left to say goodbye and let him go on to his next life. I personally believe that we will see our pets in heaven. I’m sure some theologian will argue that point but I really don’t care.

            Heard a teaching that was disturbing. Seemed to suggest Christians don’t need to take responsibility and are not expected or required to do much regarding their faith. The idea was that God controls everything so we don’t have to worry about anything. There is a complacency in the church that is sad to watch, an ideal that says all we have to do is show up for church and say nice things and that is all God expects or requires. How far from the truth this is. What you really believe is demonstrated by what you do. Faith without works is dead, just a lot of empty words designed to impress someone without requiring any effort or sacrifice. It’s a comfortable Christianity, one that appeals to many, meantime I know of many who are being persecuted and killed because they will not deny their faith, even when threatened with death.

            It’s late and I am tired so goodnight folks. The furniture store is doing well but has much room for improvement. We are proceeding on buying that old store on the interstate now that we have gotten expert opinions on the title. So I will once again put the word out for investors. Been nine months since this property became available. Will be nice to get it done.
