“You've got this life and while you've got it, you'd better kiss like you only have one moment, try to hold someone's hand like you will never get another chance to, look into people's eyes like they're the last you'll ever see, watch someone sleeping like there's no time left, jump if you feel like jumping, run if you feel like running, play music in your head when there is none, and eat cake like it's the only one left in the world!” ― C.

Do you fly a flag at your home?  We fly our Texas Flag most of the time and our US Flag on special holidays.  We are very patriotic and sometimes I wonder if it is not more for our great state than for our country.  Truth seems to be a thing of the past in the current day state of our union.  Subterfuge seems to be the order in every direction.  Covering tracks of past mistakes, not telling the truth, saying things you think people want to hear you say but doing other things... things against the law.  It is only days until the election and I have stayed off the subject because I do not like either major party candidate. We have made our decision to vote and who we are voting for and it is perhaps the least of the two evils. 

Truth was something that was the core of my upbringing and I am blessed to have married a man that walks the same path.  God is always first and truth is part of His Word.  Truth is our banner on the flagpole of life. God's truth surrounds us here at home and every moment of the day or night no matter where we are.  Biblically we begin with Adam and Eve and the story of the Tree of Knowledge.  It was so easy for Adam to fall into that gray area of truth and lie... she told me to do it.  Yes, she might have told him, but he did not have to do it. He was to guide her and lead her away when she was confronted to eat from it. Adam and Eve fell prey in the perfect setting of the Garden of Eden, so imagine where we are today and all the temptations and evil surrounding us through the media and social media.  It is hard to distinguish truth from lie. We must be vigilant.

Eph 3:12 Because of Christ our our faith in Him, we can now come fearlessly into God's presence, assured of His glad welcome.
