Oldiesmann: Final update on this, for those not on Seniors and Friends... I got the car. Similar payments to what I had with the Malibu, but for only 4 years instead of 6. Dec 11 2019 1:45am

Oldiesmann: Yet another update on the car situation... Going to look at a 2012 Hyundai Sonata tomorrow (Tuesday). Hoping to get it, assuming everything looks good and I can get affordable payments Dec 03 2019 12:04am

Oldiesmann: Accident was my fault. Went through what I thought was a yellow light and it turned red before I got through the intersection. Got hit by cross traffic on the front right side Oct 26 2019 10:34am

Marilyn: So is your insurance going to foot the cost of an new car for you. was the accident the other guy's falt or yours? Oct 22 2019 11:42am

Oldiesmann: Update on the car situation... Initial estimate was that the car was repairable. However, after further inspection at a body shop, the insurance company determined that the cost of repairs is about $1200 more than the car is worth Oct 16 2019 10:28pm

Oldiesmann: For those who didn't see the message on seniorsandfriends, I was involved in an accident this morning. I'm fine and my car should be repairable, but I've had the car less than 48 hours and am not looking forward to the costs Sep 30 2019 12:33pm

Carol: Praise:  I have no cancer after undergoing a skin throat surgery  today!  Everyone was surprised - - prayers answered.   So very blessed. Aug 13 2019 5:25pm

Carol: Today is another drive to the VA.  We have found a little part that is not on the fast and furious freeway.  Whoever thinks that growth in a city is a good thing is wrong.  Two grands came for an overnight and their visits mean so much to us.  /b] Aug 07 2019 10:46am

Carol: I hope everyone is feeling well and happy.  Aug 07 2019 10:42am

Psalm 58

This psalm is a prayer that God would display His righteous judgement here on earth, so as to bring the injustice of men to an end and to let the righteous rejoice in the fall of their oppressors.  From our vantage point in the end of times, we know that the psalmist really had to be seeking messianic relief, the kind of relief Isaiah prophesied when he said, "righteousness shall cover the earth as the waters cover the sea."  Man's unrighteous judgement  won't end until then.

And, indeed, there's no one like the true Messiah, our Lord Jesus Clhrist, to bring about such relief.  The fact is that  He really is going to do that.  When He returns to this earth,  He'll do it quickly and He'll do it thoroughly!

He Himself had to face unjust judgement at the Cross. But there was a wonderful purpose - He was oppressed so that we might be delivered! And now, because He completed that work, He IS our relief.  When man oppresses now  there is ultimate triumph, though now for a time there is pain.  With that in mind, our response now should be, "come quickly, Lord Jesus," and let righteousness reign in the earth!  Amen!  Let us all join that triumphant chorus of prayer!

I particulary like the way this Psalm ends by saying
'Then people will say, There really are rewards for doing what is right. There really is a God who judges the world." Isa 58:11 NCV
"Good people take care of their animals, but even the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel" Prov. 12:10
