The Shelter of God's Promises

Since we have done all of Beth Moore's studies, I believe, our Ladies' Bible class is now taking a video course by Sheila Walsh called, The Shelter of God's Promises.  Paulette is our excellent leader and she is the one who made this bulletin board.  And Jane is the lady who gets us started each day with a little levity to make sure we are awake before the lesson.  

This day, Jane showed up to do her thing, even though only 4 days earlier she fell on her basement stairs, sprained her ankle and gashed her head... 8 staples worth.  She was limping, but it didn't extinguish her good sense of humor or bright smile. 

Now for the state of things outside the classroom...on the street, so to speak.  Several days ago a woman wrote a letter to the editor of our newspaper  which stated something like this:  Progressive is the opposite of Regressive.  And she is absolutely correct.  However, I think what she was trying to say is ,'Being a Progressive isn't a bad thing, but being the opposite, regressive is,  that is, she was  saying that Republicans are regressive.   That is one of the tricks those who would like to lead you astray would use.They would cloud your mind with insignificance and half truths.

Actually, neither is good. They are both extremes. It is better to be a Conservative.  That is the middle between Progressives and Regressives.  The Conservative is probably more near what you and I are if you stop to think about it. The Conservatives hold onto what is good and fix only that which is not working well. Think about it, it may be hard because the liberal teachers in schools have been teaching for quite a few years now that Conservatives were rich, uncaring and greedy. It isn't true at all.
Conservatives believe in giving to all citizens the tools they need to make the most of themselves and make them self confident wage earners, while enjoying their God given freedom.  The old saying goes...give a man a fish and he will eat for one day, teach him to fish and he'll eat for a lifetime.  

Conservatives are generous with their own money while Liberals are generous with every one else's money.
