No Gentlemen any more!!
So what has happened to all the Gentlemen?? I tell you what. I had to go into two different restaurants tonight and order food. One right next to the other one, walking distance. So I go into the Chinese restaurant, pick up my order , go next door to the Fish House and get my order there. When I turned to go out of the fish restaurant There were 2 men standing next to the door. Here I was with both hands full and do you know not one of them offered to move and open the door for me. UGGGGG!! What has happened to men opening doors for women, and helping out when they see a woman with her hands full. So men WHAT happened to being gentlemen?? I know women can be independent and such,,but GEEZE!! help a lady out when you can. Just because we are in 2017 doesn't mean manners was thrown out with the bath water.

From our time of meeting until her departure to Heaven, we were friends. My husband and I would go and visit quiet often and minister the word to her when she cou…
In the study today I read a verse in Psalms and it brought to question, how are you building and who is at the root of it? You see when we take on a building project we have to start somewhere, it is usually at the beginning, we usually lay that corner stone first. But you see there is some that think that you can build walls before you lay a foundation.
In Psalms 127:1 it says Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
So you see in this verse it's telling us that we need the Lord to build a house. Whether it be an artificial house, such as the temple, or the royal palace, or any structures for that matter. Solomon built many structures, but they would have never succeeded without the Lord. Of all things that we build or build upon it will only succeed if it depends entirely upon God's blessing. Psalms 127 verse 1 states that it is VAIN to attempt it otherwise. In all affairs we must loo…
