A few of my favorite quotes from Martin Luther King Jr.
“Science investigates; religion interprets. Science gives man knowledge, which is power; religion gives man wisdom, which is control. Science deals mainly with facts; religion deals mainly with values. The two are not rivals.” -Martin Luther King Jr.
“The early Christians rejoiced when they were deemed worthy to suffer for what they believed. In those days the Church was not merely a thermometer that recorded the ideas and principles of popular opinion; it was a thermostat that transformed the mores of society.” -Martin Luther King Jr.
“The end of life is not to be happy, nor to achieve pleasure and avoid pain, but to do the will of God, come what may.” -Martin Luther King Jr.
Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!
BLESS THE LORD!
January 20th this year, yesterday, was my husband’s 70th birthday; this man is a miracle. He has Agent Orange, COPD, and the LORD God Almighty has given him extra time whereas many have died due to AO. Also this year, Israel is 70. What a blessing and a miracle that is. My husband is as old as Israel! LOL
So good to hear from you Irene! Hope You and Mike are doing well. Please say him for me.

Bravo to Martin, well said!
Sadly, the thermostat he speaks of is broken, and I fear that we’ve gone back to the thermometer. Only the God of the living can fix this problem.
