Letters to the editor – Saturday (8-13-11)

It may take a total blackout for people to see the light
Each day people willfully become mentally blind and deaf. By doing so they fail to hear God speak. Fail to see the many ways he tries to open up their eyes to the truth.
Instead of having a desire to live by God’s standards, they prefer to obey Satan’s commands, which are: drunkenness, drug addictions, prostitution, fornication, adultery, greediness, selfishness, pornography, thinking too highly of one’s self, looking down one’s nose at less fortunate individuals, and the list goes on.
Maybe people would be more thankful and grateful for the many blessings which God so unselfishly gives them each day if they had to live without modern technology, as our ancestors did.
I’m referring to the ancestors who had to live in houses with no electricity and indoor plumbing; and who, as children, had to walk for miles to school during all types of weather.
Now, let’s bear in mind what could happen if our power plants were bombed. Everyone’s lifestyle could become similar to our ancestors.
Hint: No electricity! No water flowing inside homes! No pumping fuel into vehicles! (Generators run on gas, too).
I know some of you will scoff at this. However, because of the wickedness of mankind, it could possibly happen. Never put your trust in mankind.
Now is the time for everyone to forsake satan and join together in worldwide prayer. Believe only in God and Jesus! Believe!

Thanks for your honesty
My wife and I wish to thank the person who found my wallet in the parking lot and turned it in to the lost and found at Walmart.
The wallet was turned in with all the things in it intact, including monies. It was very nice of you and we really appreciate turning it in. You didn’t leave a name so we could thank you personally. We were very lucky that it was you that found it.

Dedicated caregivers
Recently my husband died and I was plunged into a world of caring.
Although I have always been a volunteer, and knew people who did incredible work for others, I was amazed at the dedication of the caregivers, at every stage, at the hospitals and nursing homes.
To see, each day, a smile on a face or a kindness done for my husband or hear a kind, caring word for me and our family during this stressful time still amazes me. There are so many good people in this world working hard for all of us.
So much of the news is about negative things. I wonder why we give this negative reinforcement when there are so many positive things happening in our lives.
Our family has seen so much of this caring, from hospitals and nursing homes to hospice. We thank them all. Everywhere we went, they welcomed us with open arms and hearts. They made us part of their lives. We will remember them always with our prayers and without heartfelt thanks. God bless them. They are the greatest!
