Supreme Court

FB42746C-7595-46D0-9F75-F38D1D968F18“for his judgments are true and just; for he has judged the great prostitute who corrupted the earth with her immorality, and has avenged on her the blood of his servants.””
Revelation‬ ‭19:2‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Supreme Court

Usually news from SCOTUS reminds me of the ONLY Supreme Court.  The judicial branch of our country is supposed to render wise judgments.  As witnessed over recent years, some of these judgements are anything but wise.  Our political forces have become so powerful that wisdom is trumped by power and money.  The corruption of our system only reinforces my path to the true Supreme Court, the only one that has eternal judgment.

Pride

2905515E-7704-41D4-8755-94CC544D9D7D“One’s pride will bring him low, but he who is lowly in spirit will obtain honor.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭29:23‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Pride

In many ways, our culture has become very self-centered to the point of feeling proud of our own self-worth. Why do we praise pride? I believe it takes our focus off God who deserves all our focus and praise. We can feel joy for doing our best, but I believe pride merely tries to conceal something which we do not want others to discover—ultimately our own powerlessness without the power of God.

British Monarchy

4A913760-07AE-436B-BC98-C77A17C46FB5 Apparently the Queen rarely exerts the power she wields as it is kept in check by the only person in the UK who can tell her what to do—herself. Though she has supreme power over many things, she allows Parliament to execute her duties so she can stay in good favor with her monarchy. The Royal Family certainly seems to focus on public image for the most part, but there is a fair amount of drama. The painting above done by my daughter depicts the recent Royal Wedding. They declined all gifts, but I feel sure they would love this original Masterpiece.

Eagles

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭40:31‬ ‭ESV‬‬

My daughter painted this eagle as we were watching a documentary about one of my favorite bands, The Eagles, who chose their name while they were in the desert searching for their spirit animal.
Eagles are known for their strength, size, keenness of vision, and powers of flight. What a majestic bird that has been a symbol for so many things through the years.

The Sunflower

It’s not surprising that people have always associated the Sunflower with warmth, positivity, power, strength, and happiness since it looks like the Sun itself. Indeed, it is a hearty plant because it stays focused on the Sun. As the Disney song suggests, “we can learn a lot of things from the flowers.” We need to stay focused on the RIGHT goals to thrive!
