Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus, because the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and death.  Romans 8:1-2 CSB

 My heart is saddened seeing my sister in the nursing home but she is mentally much more stable than she was in the months previous which, is such a blessing.  I am so grateful.  We visited twice yesterday, first just PJ and me for several hours and then again with my niece and her friend.  We had a nice day and then met up with Erin and Hayden Grace who is almost 10.  She is a real cutie and after visiting my sister today, we will pick her up from school and have a big birthday bash for me and my two nieces who are also May babies.  There will be 7 of us I believe.  Afterwards we will all go visit Sharon again.  Hayden Grace will spend the night with us.  I am so grateful for my niece Stacy who has done such a wonderful work taking care of my sister.  Though we have talked and chatted, we will see each other tonight and Lena will still be with us.  Please pray for them as they need the Lord! 

Deuteronomy 26

Property is such a wonderful God-given inheritance!  God is always to get the first of everything to honor Him and show appreciation for His blessing.  Not only do we offer the choicest to the Lord but we are expected to care for the ministers, aliens, fatherless and widows.  There sure is a balance on the whole immigration thing, isn’t there?  My opinion which is my opinion is that immigrants should be welcome to the USA, but legally in accordance with the law of the land just like any other nation.  Reality is that my grandparents left the persecution in Russia to come to the US in 1912 but they did it legally.  All Americans in the states originally came that way except of course for the indigenous people.

Today, I certainly choose to keep the Lord’s commands with all my heart and soul because He has mightily blessed me.

Greetings from sunny Portland Oregon.  Yes sunny, Praise my God!  Great flight on Alaska Airlines.  Please be praying as we will visit my sister Sharon in a while and my niece Lena is driving up today.  Other than that, just will enjoy our time here.  Miss you all already!

Deuteronomy 25

Judges are to be just and not show favoritism or political views to please God.  This is a far cry from today’s society and judicial system, unfortunately.  I read an article yesterday that a priest molested over 100 children in Guam and though he pleaded guilty, he was not charged with anything and is free.  Lord, please allow for Christian, conservative, constitutionalists in the placement of judges in all of our courts.  No matter what, my God is merciful!

This is the why Boaz went before the prominent men in the community about marrying Ruth for there were no more brothers and the closest kinsman redeemer didn’t want to marry her, yet Boaz did.  This is also why Lord Yeshua is our Kinsman Redeemer, because no one else could redeem us!

God is just and to do business unjustly really displeases our God. 

Blotting out the Amalekites is an example of us having no more enemies rising up like terrorists do as they will be completely blotted out in heaven where they can do no harm to the people of God!

Song of Solomon 5

There is no one that can compare with the Lord God Almighty!

I was asked in an email if I will be continuing the daily OHA blog over the time we are traveling and the answer is of course!  Now, if I don't have internet (which I should) on any days, it will be up as soon as I do.  I cannot go without reading the Word and spending time with my Lord each day!

Sandi is caring for the church along with the other leaders.  Sandi is also caring for our home and dogs so all is taken care of here.  Bless her all you can!  She is doing a mission trip to Bolivia in October so that would be a great way to send blessings her way :)!

Rejoice always, pray constantly, give thanks in everything; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.  1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 CSB

Deuteronomy 24

Our Lord Yeshua stepped in on the divorce issue (see Matthew 19, starting in verse 1) and said the only reason to divorce was for sexual immorality.  I do add one to that – if there is physical abuse.  How can I do that?  If a man loves his wife like Messiah loves the church he will do everything to protect her and not harm her.  Lord Yeshua said, “Jesus replied, “Moses permitted you to divorce your wives because your hearts were hard. But it was not this way from the beginning.”  Matthew 19:8    I would never equate myself with Moses but as your overseer, I permit a woman to leave if she is beaten by her husband.  Ladies, if you are being beaten, get out!  25% die from beatings from spousal abuse!  Children that are abused have a high statistical percentage of becoming abusers themselves.  This is not the plan of our God for you! 

I love that the husband stayed home from war with the wife for their first year of marriage “so that he can bring joy to the wife he has married.”

The Lord always cares for His people and it is expected that we absolutely do the same!

Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is very powerful in its effect.  James 5:16 CSB

Deuteronomy 23

My God has turned the curse into the blessing for me because He loves me!  Do what I say and say what I mean to do. 

Song of Solomon 3

I must seek the Lord until I find Him and never be without Him! 

Seek the Lord while he may be found; call to him while he is near.  Let the wicked one abandon his way and the sinful one his thoughts; let him return to the Lord,so he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will freely forgive.

This is the second time it states, “Do not stir up or awaken love until the appropriate time”.  Ladies, wait on the Lord and don’t make a relationship happen without His lead!

Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.  Philippians 4:6-7 CSB

Deuteronomy 22

I am my brother’s and sister’s keeper! 

“A woman is not to wear male clothing, and a man is not to put on a woman’s garment, for everyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord your God.

Case closed.

Taking care of even the animals brings prosperity and long life!  All is the creation of the Lord.  My home is to be safe for others!  I don’t know what the law is here about swimming pools but I know in places I have lived it is mandatory to have a fence around them to protect children.  I don’t think this is law for Hawaii. 

There would be a lot of dead people if these laws about fornication and adultery were still in effect.  Whoa – thank God women today do not have to marry their rapists!

Song of Solomon 2

I am my Lord’s and He is mine, His banner over me is love! 

Love should never be stirred up inappropriately but only in God’s timing and His choosing.  Make sure ladies you have clearly heard from the Lord on who you are to marry so that you don’t live a miserable life!
