Shameless (but hope-full) Plug

All due respect, BD, but that poster looks a bit too much like Che Guevera's propaganda.

Will America get what they want?!
I haven't blogged about the presidential race at all! Mostly because I am just tired of it all, aren't you! I am so looking forward to it being over! That being said, a passage of scripture has been on my mind this week. It is from the book of Numbers and deals with the Israelites grumbling about how bad they have it in the desert! They were remarking that they had it so much better in Egypt! This always cracks me up! They were slaves who were continually having things taken away from them to make it harder for them because Pharaoh kept seeing how God would bless them with numbers! He was afraid of them so he made them work all the harder! But what the Israelites had back in Egypt, at least so they thought was MEAT! In the desert they had MANNA from Heaven! So what do they do COMPLAIN!

Numbers 11: 18-20
"Tell the people: 'Consecrate yourselves in preparation for tomorrow, when you will eat meat. The LORD heard you when you wailed, "If only we had meat to eat! We were better off in Egypt!" Now the LORD will give you meat, and you will eat it. You will not eat it for just one day, or two days, or five, ten or twenty days, but for a whole month—until it comes out of your nostrils and you loathe it—because you have rejected the LORD, who is among you, and have wailed before him, saying, "Why did we ever leave Egypt?" ' "
The whole chapter is wonderful, but this is the part that I've been thinking on! So my question to you all is: Is America about ready to get what they are asking for? And if we are, be prepared to get your fill!
