Autumn Of Change
by Christina Farris

Autumn is a gentle reminder of the changing of seasons. A simple tale of fall rain coming in changing the weather to cool. A season of the wind blowing quickly and swiftly to shake the leaves off the trees. The changing of the season slowly as the leaves die and change to their brilliant colors of fall. The season changing to a brilliant hope of things passing for things to come in a pattern and ray of washing of snow. The hope of spring to come with passing of snow.

Frost hits the grounds like a covering of slick wet, only to dry with the piercing sunshine. The tender feet crunching in the grass the frost that will soon begone with the sunshine. Have we forgotten our summer so quick, only see the dew of spring becoming the frost of winter weather. Some regions never experince the dew of spring or the frost of winter. The ground is getting cold, but our heart are warm with the cup of coffee of God's word that ever overflowing if it is overflowing.

Fire Prevention Week
by Christina Farris 10/8/2022

Fire prevention week, is about putting out the flames of the devil, and allowing Christ light to shine in one's heart. It simple really. It about ever born again Christian responsibility to join the fire fighting team of faith. To find their way to share the Gospel of Jesus. To share God's word with another living soul in need of the light of Christ. Some online, some in church, some on the city streets, some in the business world, and some in the highways and byways of life.

Where are the firefighters and rescue works that put out the house fire. Where are they going too. Are they on the field of another rescue never realizing their own soul is in jeopardy without Christ. They see death every day and do they know the love of Christ. They know how to help people, but do they know the love of Christ. Mission trips come with anyone willing to help, but not of faith. Leaders and teachers of God lead the processions of the work needed doing.

People jump aboard because they know one bowl of soup might help a child, help the elderly, or someone their own age. Not understanding the gift of love God is taking to these people as those trained witness. One act of love, one act of kindness by those in need of Christ can see the hope that one bowl of soup brings, never understanding God's mission field is not about soup, it about the fact Jesus can save the soul for eternity. When God's word grabs the unsaved heart, he sees more then a bowl of soup, but a change to share the love of God too. He becomes a hand extended to for the Lord.

Something are government doing that is dangerous is putting on the sale tickets the amount of food stamps each person gets. I was in the store yesterday when a person trouble seeing could not read her sales ticket and she wanted to know how much food stamps she had and I could not tell her. I having trouble seeing, could not read the sales ticket, nor could I help her. I had to ask the cashier when i got in line if she knew herself how I could of helped her. Of course I would of needed my magnify glass out, but of course it where I left it at home. I promise there is a point to the story. If I was not a good person I could of stole her ebt card and taken what she had left which was only a few dollars. People we need to look at ways to protect our government kids. Churches are handing out food, but the government elderly need protection in protecting their account numbers and their privacy. Teach those on food stamps to use their card like a checking account, you only have so much so write it down. Keep track yourself, don't expect everyone else to do it for you. Reason being it for your security. However the government might not change their rules, but sharing your amount with the world might cause you harm, beware what you do. It is a crisis for the poor. To many predators in our world that will find a way to steal or take what not theirs. Please care for those in need. Protect when you can.

Putting out the fires of potential bully, with the care of the concern. There so much our world needs to understand about protecting the less fortunate. There things that must be down to protect the victims of the storms. there things that must be done on even simple rescue and simple fire. Protect the needy, protect the ones who lossed already. Protect the liberty of the poor, the disabled. Protect the world of their faith in God. Protect the world of the rights. Rescue worker is not always about God but God should be in the things that are value of most people, and that hope, love, faith, and protection. Rescue worker is trying to put out the first wave of the storm. They can not put out all the waves of the storm. Who do they protect the rich, middle class, the poor and all those in between. Yet the rich feel self reliant, the middle class know they will recover, and the poor only hope to recover.

We can not play God in the life of these people, but a helping hand, a shoulder to cry on, clothes provide, the food given, and a winning smile cools the heat of the storm for many people. Where are you in the storm. Are you the rescue in the initial wave of trouble, the storm fighter in the aftermath, the storm worker that helping with long endurance of the storm. No one can do it all, need for many types of people to aid in the storm. God is in it for the long haul of the storms of our world and in our life. Not all storms are his making, but all storms he sees and walks through with us. He even aid the world in those storms. Yet he never stop a storm of his doing, or a storm caused by the world, why because we learn to love others through the storm as we want to be loved in our storms.

To bring the comfort of God who comforts us by his Spirit to those in need is our job and our hope we share of our storm of God mercy and grace will strengthen the weak.

2 Corinthians 1:3-7 KJV
3 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;
4 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
5 For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.
6 And whether we be afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation.
7 And our hope of you is stedfast, knowing, that as ye are partakers of the sufferings, so shall ye be also of the consolation.

Awareness Month
by Christina Farris

Breast cancer awareness month, and all cancer awareness month, Colonsopy and so forth. There is precancer testing that can be done before all the pressing, sticking instruments where they do not belong and so forth. Yet if you wait til the signs are obvious it can kill you. I won't avocate prescreen, I will leave it up to you and your decision with your doctor. Yet if you wait it might be to late. When you get old you feel it does not matter right or wrong you need to know the decision could effect your overall health in the long run.

Anti Bullying
by Christina Farris

The anti bully campaign is about teaching kids to be respectful, and not live like the devil. To teach the old and young alike to be responsible in caring for others not like themselves. To show compassion and not hate, not to be the one that starts a fight or creates a storm for others in their life. There enough trouble in the world without hurting anyone. We all get angry and we all want to get even, but can we show the love of Christ and say Father forgive them. I know it is impossible to cool our heels so to speak in every situation, sometimes tough words got to be said, but what is our actions. Do not let a bully trample you and try hard not to take the law into your own hands.
