I didn’t write a blog last week. Things have been too busy. We had company, and my wife did a lot of cleaning and straightening up the house. Next week my sister and one of her sons will be here from California. Now our house is cleaner than usual. Our house is always clean, but now it shines! Now is the time to visit us until I start cluttering the place up. I have already brought my tackle box into the living room and have put a fishing line on the bookcase. I’m making a fishing lead to go to the pier at the end of the month. It’s too hot to tie knots outside! The weird thing about washing windows and moving things around, you discover how many spiders you have living with you!
When our company was here from Massachusetts, we went to St. John’s Church in Richmond to see the reenactment of Patrick Henry’s “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death” speech. To me it looks like we take our liberties for granted and have even given some up. The Bible says that religious liberty will go away. We have been told about this before it will happen. When Jesus returns, we will have real liberty! We will have unlimited liberty to travel the universe and beyond!
