Thank you very much James Thomas, Christopher and Carol. ...appreciate your prayers also your practical input, Christopher, as well. I have 4 units which all have to be in good, working condition..using 2 at a time on 2 separate circuits, having to alternate them day and night..1 back-up..cannot have more than 1 unit fail..and then when 1 does, have to replace with back-up and then try to replace the back-up immediately..the units are being discontinued as a result of China trade situation..it is, moment by moment every day that it is above 45F outside. God has worked many miracles. Of course, doesn't make sense to continue to live in such a dire situation..need options. Yes,humidity is a factor..needing wisdom in management Carol, there is someone else out there in a similar situation! I will definitely keep you in prayer. Perhaps we could maintain communication/support. We would never have opted for our circumstances but we have probably experienced God's faithfulness and provision many times over had we not. Praying for comfort and strength in yours.
Thank you Dr. Tim and Christopher . I have a disability that came upon me almost 7 years ago for which I am needing to accommodate.Because it is a rare and severe one, it has pretty much been up to me to experiment and navigate it, without fail, with total dependence on Christ in the process. He has been Faithful, merciful and gracious. Presently, I am using window a/c s with a coolbot device on them for life support. I have to live in temperatures not above 54F. ( I am able to get out in cooler weather,of course, and I use cool packs to play piano in warmer temperatures.It can be navigated for an hour or 2 but,even at that,it is a step of faith and not without risk. I have done much research I am trying to find a dwelling that would,more naturally, stay below 54F..maybe like a cool, dry basement? Basement apartments are very difficult to find and, often times, the ones which are available seem to be owned by sodomites or men who want to share a bathroom. Thatâ€™s out... Though I am on Medicaid, I am responsible for my equipment as it is not deemed to be medical equipment if it cannot be acquired at a place which sells medical supplies. Of course, it is life support for me. There are very few with my condition and even fewer resources or support.
The seventh day adventists are suggesting the same,pointing to the green movement as an excuse for the faux pa to impose a "sunday law". And for the sdas...a good resource- www.nonsda.org..if they are truly wanting to hear Scripture and see or challenge it Word to word.
Thanks Adriel...but, having a disability and having to have monitored the weather here,where I live over the last seven years, would definitely make a case for much warmer climate...at least, here. I do know that I have searched and researched cooler and drier cities in this nation and, to my dismay, even the actual summer temperatures are often well above what is "average" (Alaska, Northern Michigan,Washington state,etc.) I do know that the sun rays are much stronger than in times past. Since my disability is a life and death issue daily in warmer temperatures..perhaps someone out there could direct me to a place or dwelling set-up that stays cool and dry within a 20F to 60F degree range..no one to date has been able to meet the challenge and it is a life threatening situation.
I do know that that we have had much hotter temperatures in Ohio,consistently, over the last few years. Almost every day during summer and late spring hit 90F and we had 70F degree days in winter as well. I know that,occasionally,that there have been days, here and there, with higher or lower temperatures but nothing as consistently as the present...maybe all of the greenhouse gases?..storms are much more common and much more intense as well...I'm not supporting the liberal agenda but there is something that has changed on the weather scene..maybe birth pains and judgment
I find it sad that our nation cares about those and those things which we are so directed by those with an agenda. Philanthropy and generous contributions are often with wrong and devious motivation. It's interesting that a girl is on trial for murdering, burning and burying her baby while there are so many who are encouraged to "legally" kill theirs. There are so many people falling through the cracks that we need only be sensitive to the Lord's leading in reaching out rather than be distracted and go through the endless, ritualistic memorials of others. Undoubtedly,911 was a tragedy and many innocent people lost their lives but it shouldn't be held over our heads for political gain. Living in the Dayton, OH area, I see how the oregon district incident has been exploited to that end. The people who were in the bar district, who were killed, are being heralded as heroes and millions of dollars have been raised to give to the survivors and family members. The killer had been in the bar just minutes before drinking. But for the grace of God, there go I but perspective is grossly warped. Politically, it's just about gun restrictions and hugging everyone.
There is much awry in all of this and much irony as well. Those who are all about love in Dayton hating political opponents. A bartender who actually did something heroic, not realizing his contribution as a bartender as contributing to those who are in sin. The victims,who we,of course, mourn for and to which we extend our sympathies... but who are being heralded as heroes. A half million dollars is being raised for the survivors and the bar district where this took place. What took place is tragic but what is also tragic is the take away in all of this. People are going to Hell and living in their own reality...blinded. Instead of being impressed by political figures to chime in or to offer support, they need to know Jesus. People say that they want a solution but totally reject the One who is.
Our nation has failed, Wayfarer. And there were both light and dark skinned people shot in the Dayton mass murder and so many more who would have been indiscriminately if not for the very prompt response of a few police officers.
I truly appreciate your input, Christopher and Dr. Tim. I asked an sda how they knew they were saved and they responded correctly by stating that it was faith alone in Christ alone...yet, they also are caught up in the sda cult and a big fan of Ellen G White, of course...which,of course, runs counter to Scripture. Again, thank you... His Word never goes out void and we can never go wrong if we stick to it.
It would be an improvement compared to where we are presently. I am all for families and life...totally against abortion but I know many Christians who are, and rightfully so, concerned about their children in this country and I understand how many Christians would hesitate to have any more. I can't perceive of this country being around for a couple of hundred years from now. Anyone who is living in reality, knows that these are very sobering times and that we are under judgment.
The seventh day adventists can not be pleased...They insist that the mark of the beast is worship on the first day of the week...worshiping the faux pa...adamantly, stating that the RC church is responsible for designating the day of the week most Christians worship. I know a few of these (7th days) and I pray for them and care for them. If anyone would like, please give me the best Scripture to pass along which refutes the "sunday worship" controversy. I know www.nonsda.org is very valuable to this end but sdas have no desire to check it out. While many are works driven, I know many who have professed to be saved while committing fornication repeatedly...not repenting but justifying their poor choices by blaming others...we have probably justified and passed blame but, as Christians, should be out of a pattern of sin by the grace of God. Input?
"junky tv" is a redundant term. ...always been junky and now God has allowed us to be ruled by it. This is why we have the kind of people we hsve ruling over us now. Spoiled,rich brats who blaspheme the name of God.
Thorns and thistles and other not so good things appeared after the fall. Trying to defend pot is like trying to defend tobacco. Just because it exists, doesn't mean that we need to ingest or smoke it. People who have behavioral problems already have the cure like the rest of us with our sin problems- Jesus.
To Just- Possums aren't a real threat. I think that gun happy killers should take up another hobby. ..you don't have grocery stores or farms? Killing for sport is creepy. I understand self defense.I don't hear much about possum attacks. I do hear a lot of human attacks. We are to be good stewards over that to which God has entrusted. Killing animals desensitizes people.
