Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

To think & pray about...

(from JM’s fb page:)
We should be thankful for every right step that our nation takes, even when the motives are a mix of good and not-so-good. But let’s not forget that if we set our hopes on the political process, we will be disappointed—not to mention guilty of idolatry. Most of our brothers and sisters around the world long ago lost hope in government to solve their problems—if they ever even had such hope. Their political landscape has looked parched and ugly, even hostile, for a long time. The enmity is scrawled on walls and made into official public policy. Christian parents are faced with almost impossible choices in the schooling of their children, for example. Yes, we are encouraging them to take part in the political process, to try to make a difference in their culture. We as U.S. citizens should do the same. But at the end of the day, this world is neither friend nor home, even though its face may soften and its breath may sweeten from time to time.
