Heavenward

August 31, 2011

Should he be penalized?  Yes.  Should they blame the refs?  No.  Is it a game of any significance?  In their minds, yes, but in reality, no, not really.

Thoughts?

As reported by the Associated Press and a variety of Ohio sources, the “excessive celebration” came as Louisville wide receiver Alex Schooley and teammate Gavin Lovejoy met each other in the end zone after Schooley’s late touchdown reception, which gave Louisville a 26-24 lead. Instinctively, the two Louisville players pointed at the sky, a motion intended to pay tribute to a close friend who had died in an accident just days before.

That’s when a flag flew in from an official, citing excessive celebration because the players’ heavenward point was considered an action that drew attention to themselves. Despite Louisville coach John DeMarco’s protestations, the penalty stood, as did the narrow, 26-24 lead following a missed two-point conversion.

The penalty pushed back the ensuing kickoff 15 yards, and Walsh Jesuit returned the boot all the way to the Louisville 29-yard line. Less than a minute-and-a-half of official time later, Walsh Jesuit was celebrating a come-from-behind, season-opening 27-26 win while Louisville was bemoaning a misinterpreted honor for a friend.

As the AP reported, Ohio High School Athletic Association assistant commissioner Henry Zaborniak said that the game officials responsible for the call were actually correct in penalizing the tribute, as it could be considered offensive to the other team without first knowing the context of the gesture.

Still, Louisville fans and football parents are still in an uproar over the perceived slight, or lack of flexibility shown by officials in a season-opening football clash for both schools.

“[It was just] a simple gesture to heaven,” Ann Miller, the grandmother of a Louisville player, told the AP.

Glory to God

August 21, 2011

Before the world was made
Before you spoke it to be
You were the King of Kings
Yeah you were, yeah you were
And now you`re reigning still
Enthroned above all things
Angels and saints cry out
We join them as we sing

Chorus
Glory to God
Glory to God
Glory to God forever (repeat)

Creator God you gave
Me breath so I could praise
Your great and matchless name
All my days all my days
So let my whole life be
A blazing offering
A life that shouts and sings
The greatness of our King

Bridge
Take my life and let it be
All for You and for Your glory
Take my life and let it be Yours

Being Sly About It

August 17, 2011

I can see your sly movement.

So, here’s another result of O and the admin slowly introducing socialism. And yet people don’t see it or care enough to make them know we don’t want this for this country.

“The number of people on food stamps has been growing to record levels for 30 straight months. The latest report from the Agriculture Department showed nearly 46 million people — or one in seven Americans — were enrolled as of May in what’s formally called the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.”

Lion of Judah

August 13, 2011

You’re the Lion of Judah
The Lamb Who was slain
You ascended to Heaven
And evermore will reign
At the end of the age
When the earth You reclaim
You will gather the nations before You

And the eyes of all men
Will be fixed on the Lamb
Who was crucified
With wisdom and mercy
And justice You’ll reign
At Your Father’s side

And the angels will cry
Hail the Lamb
Who was slain for the world
Rule in power
And the earth will reply
You shall reign
As the King of all kings
And the Lord of all lords
There’s a shield in our hand
And a sword at our side
There’s a fire in our spirits
That cannot be denied
‘Cause the Father has told us
For these You have died
For the nations that gather before You

And the ears of all men need to hear
Of the Lamb
Who was crucified
Who descended to hell
Yet was raised up to reign at
His Father’s side

It’s About Time

August 7, 2011

‘Standing on a stage surrounded by thousands of fellow Christians on Saturday morning, Gov. Rick Perry of Texas called on Jesus to bless and guide the nation’s military and political leaders and “those who cannot see the light in the midst of all the darkness.”
“Lord, you are the source of every good thing,” Mr. Rick Perry said, as he bowed his head, closed his eyes and leaned into a microphone at Reliant Stadium here. “You are our only hope, and we stand before you today in awe of your power and in gratitude for your blessings, and humility for our sins. Father, our heart breaks for America. We see discord at home. We see fear in the marketplace. We see anger in the halls of government, and as a nation we have forgotten who made us, who protects us, who blesses us, and for that we cry out for your forgiveness.”’

Sad, but True

August 2, 2011

If you have ever been wronged, raise your hand. If you ever been upset, stand up.

If you are a Christian, then you should understand these things happen, and yes, they even happen within the church.

Sad, but true.

But, if you follow man, and not Christ, you will harbor anger, bitterness, an frustration.

Don’t be like some of these people.
SGM Survivors
People are men-followers, people who want to blame others, people who are angry, people want to destroy.

Let me ask one of you who are a “survivor”, what are you thinking?

They are a slew of verses that warn is about you and other verses that point us to the cross.

Let’s stop this kinda of bickering and put on the “new self”.
