Instead of your shame there shall be a double portion; instead of dishonor they shall rejoice in their lot; therefore in their land they shall possess a double portion; they shall have everlasting joy. (Isaiah 61:7 ESV)
O Lord, You are the portion of my inheritance and my cup; You maintain my lot.
But I have trusted in your steadfast love; my heart shall rejoice in your salvation.
Potomac River (at Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center)
And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.
Thus says the LORD who made the earth, the LORD who formed it to establish it - the LORD is his name: Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.
But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.
As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance…
Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.
Colossians 3:23-24, ESV
Siena Poll: One Half of New Yorkers Support Two Year Delay of Common Core
Interesting poll from Siena College. Voters continue to be divided by the New York State Education Department’s implementation of the Common Core, with 36 percent saying they are too demanding, 24 percent saying they’re not demanding enough and 23 percent saying they are about right (34-27-23 percent in November).
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
