This picture is Gloria’s father,

Tom. This is 56 yrs. later.

We are living in a generation where Satan is working overtime to
destroy the family. The father, the mother and the children are being at-
tacked on a daily basis. We are turning our hearts away from one another
and going about to live life for the good of ourselves. How many homes
do you know of today that are dedicated to raising a godly seed? How
many homes do you know of that live to bring glory to God? How many
people today live in a disfunctional home? Father, what is it like at your
house?

The most difficult place to live your Christian life successfully,
is in the home!!! When you can have a peaceful home, then your family
has learned to live what they believe. Not every day do we have a right
spirit or right desires. Some days we deal with a bad attitude or we might
be irritable. In other words our flesh is on top and our Spirit of God is on

We live in a divided country and both sides are fighting for what
they believe in. Our children have been taught socialism in our public
schools now for over 50 years. They have also been taught evolution as a
fact. We have failed to teach the truths of God’s Word to our generation
and we are on the verge of losing our God fearing country.

I believe God has given us a window of opportunity to take back
our country. If we do not get on our feet and win (not force) our genera-
tion, we will soon lose all these wonderful freedoms that come from God.

You can find God’s Word all over our country but the letter of the
law killeth. We need to exhibit the Spirit and Power of God to show that
those words are true. God’s people have not lived by faith and the world
has not seen His mighty works for a long long time. Oh, there are some
powerful Christians around, but there are so few, most people will never
meet them. Many years ago I found this verse and took it for my life
