Thermostat Tips to Remember When Things Get Too Hot
Is it hot where you are?
Here in Southern New Jersey we’ve endured scorching summer 2020 temperatures in the mid-90’s and up, with humidity about the same. Add to that the heat of world-wide unrest as the forces of good and evil collide in every mountain of culture, in every nation: government, academics, economics, media, entertainment, church, and family.
In this transitional era of world history, these high pressure systems can weigh us down with weariness, wariness, and wimpiness. Living one day to the next in the lava flow of hyped pandemics, totalitarian threats, and propaganda mind control at epic levels, becomes like slave labor in a sense. Our physical, mental, and emotional psyche seeks a reset in liberty, balance, and stability to know rest and renewal in a sensible air conditioned environment.
That’s where our spirit man comes in—the ultimate stabilizing thermostat in our lives set by the Word and Promises of God in any weather condition. On every battlefield.
The Divine Responsibility of Every American ~
Especially American Christians!
Did you know you are living in a land of miraculous wonders and divine foundations wrought by the hand of God for eternal purposes?
Our Founding Fathers believed this to be true and established covenant documents to form Constitutional government never before seen in the earth to accomplish that purpose.
But, you certainly won’t hear this on T.V. MSM news or read it in public school textbooks anymore.
To wave the red, white, and blue over America in the spirit of 1776 and stand at the gap for our nation's full restoration to our manifest destiny in His Story, awaken the slumbering Lady Liberty within with Links to these INSPIRATIONAL PRIMARY SOURCE TOOLS . . .
The summer of 2016 exploded with elevated anxiety nationwide regarding the upcoming election that would decide if America had the opportunity for restoration of Constitutional power, citizen liberties, justice, law and order--making American great again--or to continue on the slippery slope of national suicide and destruction of our sovereignty for absorption into the globalist New World Order that media, leftist politicians in power, and perverse social constructs had worked decades to create. I feared for my children and grandchildren. I mourned the glory and gifts of Western civilization and our noble American Christian history that had been slowly erroded in every sphere of influence in our society: government instutitions, academia, media, entertainment, business--and even the church and family. There was no place to go but the feet of my Lord--in tears. The Lord responded to my "mousy" little laments with a lion's roar. READ ON or CLICK PLAY above and listen to the audio version.
I first published this post and podcast in October 2016 on the eve of the historic election when Donald Trump became our 45th president and heralded a great shift of power and purpose in our nation--a restoration of America's founding principles and a long prayed for cleansing of a nation. This could only be done through the shaking of all things--as God promised to do in Hebrews 12:25-29--shaking all things so that only what is of Him would remain. We are currently living through this unprecedented moment in history .
The Old Schoolhouse Book Review
by Amanda Hopkins
"My kids love to read, and I love to find a way to keep track of what they read in a fun way. My Every Day a Story Journal, For Girls Who Read from Pageant Wagon Publishing, was a wonderful way to track our books in a fun way."
Read along or just click below and listen to "From Leyden to Liberty: The Thanksgiving Tale," originally published as Episode 3 on The Writer's Reverie Podcast on The Writer's Reverie Blog (no longer available online), and simultaneously in RUBY Magazine in November 2015 (no longer available online).

Miss Kathy gives this book FIVE STARS!
For most families, the days rush through the tick-tock of the clock allowing little quality time together in the wake of a packed schedule serving one need or another. Yet the most important need is the soul necessity of time with God--as an individual and as a family.
I've recently returned from the Greater Philadelphia Christian Writers Conference (GPCWC) held earlier this month in Lansdale, Pennsylvania. My thoughts in the aftermath swirl while thumbing through pages of notes and photos. I review new friendships forged and link with each on social media. Reconnecting with kindred writing peers I see once a year requires follow-up. My to-do list priorities in the wake of conference fills a spreadsheet. Where do I begin . . .

When George Washington commissioned Betsy Ross to create the first American flag in the spring of 1776, his design featured a six-pointed star. He thought cutting equal sides in a six-pointed star would be easier than a five pointed star.
However, Betsy knew better. She astounded him with her demonstration of how easy it was to cut equal-sided five-point stars from fabric with just a few folds and a scissor snip.
Here's a tutorial to cut your own 5-pointed star, just like Betsy!
