There is never a dull moment in our house-hold;
Day before yesterday, my dad, brother and I went up to feed our animals in the morning at around 7:00.
Well, our two goats, Charlie and Chester, usually are the first to greet us. Well, only Chester came to greet us, but we didn't see Charlie; we didn't even here him calling. We got up there, and he was under the shed and wouldn't come out, which is VERY unusual for that fat, gluttonous goat.
He was making terrible bleating sounds and grinding his teeth, which is a sign of pain in a goat. We tried to coax him out with food, but he wouldn't come, so we knew then that something was definitely wrong. We called the vet out, and to make a long story short: he had something similar to kidney stones.
We took him to the vet in the back of the truck and left him, so, now I've got to go with my dad in the matter of two minutes and pick him up. Oh, by the way, it's in the 40s, which means it's very cold and I'll freeze to death with my wet hair! :P :)
Oh well, life must go on.
Just a brief update, but I've got to go!

My dad gave us some encouragement this morning from Isaiah chapter three, which is the one that I had posted awhile back.
I must say that, when I heard that he had become President, I was scared, but this chapter gave me comfort. Please read it.
God will help us to get through this, but that doesn't mean that we won't be untouched by it;
trials WILL come, and soon, I'm afraid; but Jesus Christ is on His throne up in Heaven, and He has everything under control. I believe that He is about to purge the church from all of the false Christians, and He IS going to shake the world...we must be prepared, physically and spiritually.
It will be interesting to see what God is going to do next. Barak Obama is a judgment on this nation, hard times are ahead of us, but we must NOT fear! The world is full of fear, and the church is going right along with it. But we as true Christains by God's grace must not fear, for He will watch over his Chosen People, and keep them under the shadow of His wing.
I forget who this quote is by, but it went like this:
"God will be the first to set foot on the battlefield, and He will be the last to step off of it.
He will leave no man behind; He might not bring you home alive, but He WILL bring you Home!"
Like I said, I forget who that is by, but I like it. :)
I am openly a Reformed Presbyterian and believe in John Calvin's works, sometimes known as Calvinism; the Armenians came up with five view points of their belief, and Calvin countered that with the Five Points of Calvinism:
T. Total Depravity.
U. Unconditional Election.
L. Limited Atonement.
I. Irresistable Grace.
P. PERSEVERENCE OF THE SAINTS.
P. Is what we need to carry out now. We need to persevere.
"Say to the righteous that it will go well with them, for they will eat the fruit of their actions.
Woe to the wicked! It will go badly with him, for what he deserves will be done to him.
O My people! Their oppressors are children and women rule over them.
O My people! Those who guide you lead you astray and confuse the direction of your paths."
Isaiah chapter three v. 10-12.
God help us.
P.S. A good book to read about Providence is the Westminster Confession of Faith.
