A Prayer For The Wandering Eye

Dear Mr. Miller,

I hope this letter finds you in good health and enjoying your food and plain beer. I've certainly enjoyed mine this hot summer.

"I have come to know that there is nothing better for them to rejoice and to do good during one's life, and also that every man should eat and drink (indeed drink) and see good for all his hard work. It is the gift of God." (Ecclesiastes 3:12 and 13) (Also: 5:18-9:7)

I have relatives who come visiting from California who shudder and roll their eyes at my taste for Millers' Draft. Well hey! I know how to stick my little finger out while holding - not entirely redneck.

Re: The times of the shaky economy still going on.

"The nations have sunk down into the pit that they have made; in the net that they hid, their own foot has been caught." (Psalm 9:15)

"Therefore keep on the watch, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming." (Mathew 24:42)

The next show on the agenda is the fall of Babylon the Great, the mother of harlots will be utterly destroyed by the national groups." (Revelation 17).

"She" is the false religion of history still causing all kinds of trouble with her connection with the rules of this system. When that happens the preaching of the "good" news of God's Kingdom will have had its day. The "door" will be closed. (Mathew 24:14 and Genesis 7:16)

I have many "calls" on people. You, I never hear from, but the letters never come back. I just recently went to our three day Convention and every time a scripture point was made, I kept thinking, "I've got to tell Mr. Miller that." I don't know why I keep doing this. I think, I guess that you have "thinking ability."

"My son, Safeguard practical wisdom and thinking ability may they not get away from your eyes." (Proverbs 3:21)

Your neighbor,

Doreen Gahimer
