Apocrypha: The Book of Sirach Chapter 2 vs 1-5 My son, if thou come to serve the Lord, prepare thy soul for temptation. Set thy heart aright, and constantly endure, and make not haste in time of trouble. Cleave unto him, and depart not away, that thou mayest be increased at thy last end. Whatsoever is brought upon thee take cheerfully, and be patient when thou art changed to a low estate. For gold is tried in the fire, and acceptable men in the furnace of adversity.

Entry #oo7…Sept/Oct 2012 Proverbs 31 vs 28-29 “Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also,and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.” I went to bed waaaaay too late last night and now it’s Friday morning and I’m exhausted. My daughter has to catch an early school bus and so does my middle son Nehemiah. After I drop them off it’s a race to the sabbath sundown clock.

My husband and I have date night at home on occasion since he’s a big movie buff with old and newer movies and would like to share our choices with you from time to time. He is forever the film critic so pass the buttered popcorn please! This weeks choice is the movie ‘The Wiz’ featuring Diana Ross and Michael Jackson. It is family friendly so pile the kids on the couch. I had the blessing to see the Broadway play ‘The Wiz’ in the 1970’s with my mother and last year I had the opportunity to see Broadways’ lastest adaptation ‘Wicked’ with my daughter as a chaperone on a school trip. It had singing, dancing,.
One of the most iconic favorite scenes from the movie Wizard of Oz is after the house falls on the witch of the east…. the “good” witch Glenda tells the wicked witch of the West to” shew , shew….before a house falls on you too! ” and the surviving wicked sister vows….” I’ll get you my pretty and your little dog too!!! We don’t live in a world in which we hunt witches and werewolves, and vampires in the streets with fancy potions and axes and bullets as seen in the movies…. but battle we must with scripture in order for the word of the Heavenly Father to be made clear to remove the trances that have been placed on.
