Per Fidem Intrepidus means "Fearless Through Faith". My courage isn't my own, it comes from the Holy Spirit, it's my faith in God and my personal savior Christ Jesus that calms my fears and allows me to move forward in this fallen world. Personally I'm afraid of a lot of stuff, but having the faith that Jesus adopted me as his little, sin filled, brother keeps me going.

Random Bits

It's been a long year, and there's still over ⅓ of the year left to go. On top of the most disgusting election cycle in my lifetime my bride and I have been through illness, pain, and loss this year. We've had our share of joy too - blessed with two young grandaughters we take a lot of joy in knowing that we can love them unconditionally, spoil them worse than we wanted to (but didn't) spoil our own children, then hand them back and relax. 

And the dog we were told only had weeks to live? we found out that the diagnosis was a bit of an exaggeration, she has an infection, not cancer. Some antibiotics and some dental work and she's right as rain. We lost two sweet old dogs earlier this year, so the relief that this new rescue will stay with us was overwhelming...and there's another grandchild on the way! So when you're thanking God for His blessings, remember to thank Him for the pain, that's what brings us closer to Him and makes the blessings that much sweeter. 

So with that, my bride and I are going on vacation for a while to unwind, visit friends and relish in God's love. I may post a pic here while on the road, a "Guess where we are" kind of thing. I'm sure we'll have a chance to chat with a lot of wonderful young men and women in the Law Enforcement business, they seem to like talking with folks who have Colorado plates on their cars

I normally don't post things on Atheists because of 1 Corinthians 5:12, but in the case of religious persecution of a Christian by a member of the Religion of Self I tend to make an exception, like Chris Rodda, who has a problem with Christian chaplains because they are Christian.
