I would ask that you prayerfully consider offering a gift of any size to the Jesus Alliance. We need more funding now! Last year we reached over 35 million people with the truth of God. We need to do more in order to combat the Planned Parenthoods, Humanist atheists, George Soros’s and MoveOn.orgs of the world who relentlessly fill the internet with anti-God messaging.

Lately several readers who know I’m a Georgia Bulldog fan have sent me ROLL TIDE! Salutations as they cheer on their University of Alabama football team. Unfortunately for them they got trounced last night 44-16 just like my beloved DAWGS got trounced out of the playoffs a couple of weeks ago.

I went fishing yesterday and the weather was predicted to be nice. It wasn’t! It was cold, foggy and later in the day quite breezy. The seas were rough, and I was fishing with a friend in his boat which was too small for such rough seas. Thus, we banged around out there for several hours and only caught a couple of fish.

I read an article this morning about a homeless man who found $17,000 in a bag outside a homeless shelter. The shelter hadn’t opened yet, so he waited until it did and then he gave the bag to the volunteer who was opening up for the day telling him that he found the bag full of money outside the door and someone had left it for them.

Many of my friends harassed me throughout the summer about the heat and humidity at my home in south Florida. They bragged about their mountain views, cool evenings, and crackling fires and asked if I was sweating. It seems that now the temperatures are dropping fast up north, and they are suddenly singing a (shivering) different tune as I enjoy near perfect weather.

Recently I called a Christian friend and inquired if he could ask his foreman to make a few calls and see if he could help me find someone to clean up the hurricane damage at my plantation. I had one tree down and some limbs and debris that needed to be cleaned up.

Recently one of my sons sold his business. I asked him what he was going to do next and he told me he didn’t know. He added that he wished he could come up with a good idea. I’d been mulling around a thought for a business that I feel would have huge potential and a good payday. The idea continued to haunt me for a few days so finally I called him up and told him about it.

According to a poll I read, 82% of the people worldwide have lost hope. For some it’s a wayward daughter or son, maybe a bad medical test, the never-ending middle east conflict, finding a job, paying off debt, murder and violence, those guys in Washington D.C. – you name it.

One of the weapons that Satan uses against us is discouragement and hopelessness. Yesterday I said something about how encouraged I am about the vast numbers of young people I’ve observed who are attending church. Immediately I received an e-mail disparaging mega-churches detailing how their services are not what they need to be and blah blah blah. It seems that some people just cannot bring themselves to enjoy hearing good news.

I’ve been studying the Gospels lately and it is like a cool breeze on a hot day. Being bombarded by bad news every day tends to wear me down. Lately I’ve been looking for ways to find ways to lighten things up and the Gospels are a good place to find it. There are those who have made it their lifelong goal to stop Bible study; however, that effort will never succeed.

I was talking to a friend who is a bonafide modern day prophet this week and the subject of my eyes came up. He inquired how I was doing, and I told him that after the operations the left eye was now 20/20, but unfortunately the right could not be corrected due to the macular degeneration.
