Psalm 16:5

The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.

God's Warth is Coming... Are You Ready?

You had better listen to the words of Jesus, “Not everyone who says to me Lord, Lord, shall enter, but he that does the will of my father in heaven.” If ye by the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the flesh, ye shall live. If you live after the flesh, you’ll die! The cross does not give us a minor shift or two with regard to a few of our ethical and religious values. The cross radically disrupts the very center and citadel of your life from self to Christ. And if the cross has not done that, YOU’RE NOT A CHRISTIAN! My Friend face it, young rogue, you’re not a Christian until the cross has radically disrupted the very center and citadel of your life! And brought you from a life of commitment to serve self…What are the focal points of the reign of your self? If you’ve gone to the cross in union with Christ, it’s been shattered!"

The Pilgrim Mothers

The sign on the back of this monument honoring the Pilgrim Mothers reads, "They brought up their families in sturdy virtue and a living faith in God without which the nations parish."

I love this monument and I think it stands as one of my favorites of all the monuments in Plymouth, MA. It speaks to me of the Christian faith which gave the great fortitude and courage it took for these women to sacrifice everything to come to a new land, while, at the same time, it speaks of the Christian modesty and femininity with which Godly women are to adorn themselves.
