Special Prayer Request for a Sister in Need

To all things give God the glory and He tells us to ask and it shall be given. Prayer is one of the most important things that we can ask for. And it is something that He requests we do for all those in need, but especially for our brothers and sisters. This is a prayer request from a wonderful sister who spends a lot of her time caring for other and hates to ask for herself. Please do add this to your prayers. We know that He is still on the throne and answers. And I have faith that this prayer will be answered as well! God bless you all, prayer warriors! Pray for her physical as well as mental welfare my friends. She is in an abusive situation as well!

“I need prayer.  My financial situation is unchanged, but I have to face my many physical challenges which have long gone untreated or diagnosed.  They have been growing worse but without money or insurance have been ignored.  I saw a doctor and my blood  pressure is off the charts and blood work is expected to reveal more.  PLEASE pray for me and especially for help with fear.  Thank you.”

Memorial Day Tribute Part 1

We can’t truly honor the dead if we don’t hold what they died for with honor as well. Our soldiers died for this country, from it’s inception to today. We can’t expect our children to remember them if we don’t take the time to set the examples. And it is not enough to just mouth the words, say a prayer, have a cookout and go on. To know why they were willing to sacrifice is the ultimate gift that we can give our children. If we don’t respect those who died that we might live how can we ask for that same respect from our children and if the time ever comes when they must make a choice on whether to sacrifice themselves they must know that they are doing so for a truly good reason God bless all our men and women who have made that sacrifice.

To Take a Life

Matthew 5:21
Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:

According to

Random House Webster’s College Dictionary to kill means:


  1. to deprive of life; cause the death of; slay.
  2. to destroy; do away with; extinguish.

And life means:

lifelaɪf(n.; adj.)(pl.)lives

  1. (n.)the general condition that distinguishes organisms from inorganic objects and dead organisms, being manifested by growth through metabolism, a means of reproduction, and internal regulation in response to the environment.

Who decides when it is appropriate to end the life of a being? In a civilized society it is a matter for those who are responsible for enforcing the law, to decide if the crime a person has committed rises to the level of ceding their lives for their crimes. We are no longer living in a civilized society!!!

Somehow we have passed beyond the thin veil of civilization into a degenerate and lawless society where death is appropriated simply on the whim of those doing the killing. And these degenerate ideas spawn the infantile excuse that somehow, just for the fact that you are born a woman, you have some greater empathetic knowledge on who is justified to live or die. All on the very thin excuse that a woman should be able to decide what is best for their own welfare, body and future.

It is simply such a stupid argument, I wonder at the intelligence of those who state it and those who accept it as if it must be true. If a woman was that intelligent, she would never have gotten to the place where she has the choice to make. After all, she is the one who invited the action in which she became pregnant. I am not talking about rape and incest here. I am talking about the women who think that they can sleep with any man who comes along and either not get pregnant, or rid themselves of the product of their carelessness by simply disposing of it like it is so much waste to be flushed down the toilet or tossed with the trash. And yet these are the same people who tell us that they have the right to decide what to do with their body. They seem to think that this is a sign of intelligence. If these same women were foolish enough to get an arm cut off or a permanent mark on their body, these things they would have to live with and explain how foolish they were in their actions.

So how did we get here? We got here by a Supreme Court that made a foolish decision, and gave every woman that comes along and makes a bad mistake, the opportunity to kill. Shall we start saying at some point that these women now have the right to decide that their children don’t have the right to exist if they are handicapped or if in someway they are just a burden to them? Should we give men this same right? If not why not? If you come down to it, the life that begins in a woman’s womb would not be possible without the input from the man. Should that not give them just a much right in the decision? If they decide that a baby is not in their interests, should they not have the right to make that decision?

Or is the woman somehow so much more intelligent and caring? Again I say, for most of them, they wouldn’t be in the position they were in if these were the deciding factors. So since we can say these are not applicable, we take away their reasoning for them to be in the position to make that decision , don’t we?

Abortion is not about the life of the woman, it is about the death of the baby and the denying of the responsibility of the woman for her own actions. Truly, if you follow this argument through, what you will find is that the woman if displaying a lack of intelligence and therefore cedes the very responsibility that she argues gives her the right to make a life and death decision.

I read this the other day and it haunted me:

“Can it be that women know something very deep inside, even deeper than fear and shame? Can it be that women know it is their responsibility to decide when to bring new life into this world? Women are not the enemies of our children–even those we decide not to bring into the world.”
Quoted in “Good Women have Abortions,” which appeared on the pro-abortion

Truly sad, and yet this is the argument that they use!!!!  Do they think that they know more than God then? Are they somehow so smart and empathetic that they just somehow know? If this sounds foolish, it is because it is foolish. As foolish as your child telling you that it isn’t their fault that they did something wrong, somebody else started it. Because that is the real excuse this woman is using, it isn’t her fault because some man impregnated her. She was just minding her own business. When do we stop listening to the excuses our children and hold them accountable for their actions?

We must quit letting women murder their own children in order to escape the responsibility of their own actions…

Faith Prays for the Afflicted

Elijah in the wilderness, by Washington Allston

Elijah in the wilderness, by Washington Allston (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

James 5:13-18

Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing plalms.

Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let the pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.

And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.

Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.

Elijah was a man with a nature like ours and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months.

And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth produced fruit.

The Best Way to Pray

A priest, a minister, and a guru sat discussing the best positions for prayer, while a telephone repairman worked nearby.
“Kneeling is definitely the best way to pray,” the priest said.
“No,” said the minister. 
 “I get the best results standing with my hands outstretched to Heaven.”
“You’re both wrong,” the guru said.
 “The most effective prayer position is lying on the floor.”
The repairman could contain himself no longer. 
 “Hey, fellas,” he interrupted.  “The best prayin’ I ever did was when I was hangin’ upside down from a telephone pole.”

WHO IS VAN THOMAS ??? (via Secure Arkansas)

A  Patriot  from Secure Arkansas

sent this information to us.

He was doing research on grants at the local level…

VERY interesting information.

It’s long but worth reading.

Van Thomas, Director of the White River Planning andDevelopment District,  is connected to several other corporations  where he is the Registered Agent.  In doing some investigation with the Sec. of State, I found that Van Thomas is also the Director of the White River Regional Service Center and the White River Regional Management Corporation.  Van Thomas is also the Director of Thomas & Thomas Construction , LLC.  Another thing I discovered  is that Fulton County Judge Charles Willet is the Secretary and Treasurer of the White River RegionalManagement Corporation.  Some of the other officers of the White River Regional Management Corporation are  Heber Springs Mayor, Jackie McPherson, a Director, and Woodruff County Judge, Charles Dallas, who is the Vice President.   The officers of the White River Regional Planning and Development District are Independence County Judge, Robert Griffin, a Director, Cleburne County Judge, Claude Dill, the President,  Sharp County Judge, Larry Brown, a Director  and Izard County Judge, David Sherrel, a Director.

If you check out  you will also find that all the county judges and several mayors are part of the governing board of the White River Planning and Development District, Inc.

Most, if not all, of the grants coming through the White River Regional Development District are to implement Sustainable Development.  Does anyone think that these guys are doing this for FREE?

Is this how they get Sustainable Development Implemented into our communities?

Even the Fire Protection programs are tied into Sustainable Development.  All this is done by partnerships with other agencies.  And check out  this link  about State Foresters – they’ll “manage” us right out of our own property.
All the connections are shown below.
The information below will help the reader to come to the same conclusion that every grant is used to implement Sustainable Development.

Arkansas Association of Resource Conservation
and Development Councils, Inc.

History and Mission Statement

Almost 40 years ago, Congress established a unique program within the U.S. Department of Agriculture that empowered rural people to help themselves.  The USDA focus was to assist local people by providing tools and technical support to stabilize and grow their own communities while protecting and developing natural resources.  In return , local “Councils” provide local direction and planning and coordinate implementation of specific projects within their boundaries.

RC&D is a local grass roots organization whose leadership comes from its sponsors, Conservation Districts and Local units of Government.  The decision making body, called a

Council, determines the social, economic, and environmental problems and issues relevant to the area.  The Council then develops and implements a plan with local citizens in leadership.  The RC&D concept is that local communities, all levels of government, and grassroots organizations, working together, can develop and implement solutions to widespread and local problems and develop opportunities that will help sustain rural communities, local economies, and natural resources.

RC&D serves as a catalyst for local groups to share knowledge and resources in a collective effort to solve common problems.

The combination of local leadership and coordination of state and federal resources is an efficient and effective way for communities to cooperatively support and achieve local goal.  This focus on local direction and control has made RC&D one of the most successful rural development efforts in the country.

There are 7 Resource Conservation and Development areas which cover the entire state of Arkansas.

The Secretary of Agriculture provides a full time RC&D Coordinator to help the councils find various resources needed to plan and implement specific acitons desired for the area.


The information below is from here.

Arkansas Association of Resource Conservation

One of the strengths of the Rural Fire Protection Program is the effective partnership between AARC&D, ASWCC, NRCS, and Conservation Districts. ASWCC provides administrative assistance to the program while NRCS and Conservation Districts provide technical assistance to the fire departments. This partnership is continuously reinforced as new proposals are implemented within the program…

Abortionist admits: babies sometimes born alive and left ‘wiggling around in the toilet’(via Life Science News)

Abortionist admits: babies sometimes born alive and left ‘wiggling around in the toilet

Prendergaft associate Randall Whitney reportedly testified that babies are born alive all the time after failed abortions and are then left to die.

ORLANDO, Florida, July 26, 2011 ( – In disturbing testimony during court proceedings against a well-known Florida abortionist, a fellow abortionist reportedly admitted that some aborted children are delivered alive and left “wiggling around in the toilet,” where they are allowed to die.

The testimony occurred during proceedings against abortionist James Pendergraft, who was forced to pay over $36 million last week for a botched procedure that left its intended target alive, but severely disabled.

Pendergraft, who was convicted of felony extortion in 2001, was told by an Orlando County jury to pay $18 million in the civil suit itself and another $18 million in punitive damages, totaling over $36 million.

Michele Herzog of Pro-Life Action Ministries, a witness in the courtroom, said that jurors listened as abortionist Randall Whitney, one of Pendergrast’s accomplices, “cavalierly stated that yes, babies are delivered in the toilet all the time and many times are still alive, wiggling around in the toilet.”

“I would say it was eye-opening, but we all know what really goes on in these abortion mills.  But to hear the abortionist so coldly explain how they kill the children is so hard to hear and so unbelievable to think that it is allowed in our great nation,” Herzog said.

The civil suit was launched by Pendergrast’s former patient, Carol Howard, whose infant barely survived a 2004 medical abortion at his facility. The girl, now ten years old, suffers from a host of disabilities in connection with the attempted killing, including cerebral palsy, loss of function on the left side of her body, strokes, mental disability, chronic lung disease, and seizures.

God’s Miracle’s Continue

This is an amazing story from Before it’s New that is a must read, especially for those of us who are pro-life. But it should be a must read for those who believe that a fetus is just a clump of cells and that they can just flush it out like they would flush the toilet. The beauty of God‘s creation is undeniable for anyone who has a smidgen of a desire to know the truth. I am so happy that more and more people are beginning to recognize that the need for an abortion is pretty much a farce. Very rarely is it even necessary to save a Mother’s life. Over 90%percent of abortions are simply birth control. Life is precious but some people have no understanding of the value of life, nor any respect for it. Please go to the site and read the rest of the story. I only posted a small part of it and it is definately worth reading!
