A New Pair of Boots



This morning I got a ride from Belgrade to the intersection of I-90 and U.S. 287 near Three Forks, Montana.  I walked north on U.S. 287 for two or more miles and saw this concrete culvert in the distance.  Since I didn't get much sleep the night before (I slept in a gravel pit), I thought that I would roll out my sleeping bag inside the culvert and take a nap out of the sun.

I walked down into the ditch, stepped into the culvert and saw these boots laying on the concrete slab.  The boots I had been wearing were really wore out, torn up, had lots of holes in them--my left boot had some duct tape on it holding it together--they looked more like glorified sandals than boots.

I put down my backpack, took off my old boots and put on my new boots.  They were pretty tight-fitting--but they looked virtually brand new with a little dried mud on the soles.

I thanked the Lord for the new boots and rolled out my sleeping bag on the concrete slab.  I took a nap for almost an hour and then loaded up my backpack and hit the road.

I walked north for half a mile and put down my backpack on the side of the road.  This guy picked me up and took me to Townsend where he dropped me off and gave me a loaf of bread.  I was very grateful.

The Wedding Apocalypse

 

By The Mad Jewess


The Wedding day of doom
A storm of fire…blackened plumes
Smoke in the billows of clouds.

-
A morning in white turned into a day of fright.
-
A Scripture came to mind;
The days of Lot
People….eating, drinking, making merry
The day came upon us, it did not tarry.
-

We didn’t believe it would come to an end, not at a wedding, where there is feasting and friend.
-

We coddled the enemy
Built their cities
They laughed in our face
Without any pity.

-

Profiles happy on a sunny day
Turned to devastation, from the battle array.
-

Fire, smoke and gas, all over our land
It went according to their devices and plan.
-

Babies gone, women in turmoil, the men have gone
Taken their spoil.
-

A dove of peace..
Will it settle the mind?
Has God forsaken
While America is left behind?

-
God has turned his back on the slaughter, we rejected his love, our children, we have martyr’d.
-

Waiting for rapture to unveil, yet God looked away, his word will prevail.
-
Apocalypse now, on a wedding day.

-
Repent America,
Or…The enemy will have his way.
-
