Edwin Arthur Powell
In Memoriam

A blessed Mother's Day tribute to my beloved son and daughter, Joshua and Minami, far from us in Japan, in memory of Edwin Arthur Powell, whom God in His Sovereign Wisdom and Mercy took to Himself.

As I wrote at the time, my faith teaches me that the souls of babies who die in infancy, are with the Lord Jesus who said, "Suffer the little ones to come unto me, for of such is the kingdom of heaven."

I know that someday I will see and know this precious little one, whom God in His unquestioned wisdom and grace, took from us before we knew him. He was taken away in weakness and frailty, but we will know him in strength and glory.

A number of years ago I planted a small bunch of violets just off our front porch. Since then, every year, they have reseeded themselves and seem to come up in random places, as God wills. The picture at the top of this post is published in memory of Edwin.

I do not know if they observe Mother's Day in Japan, but Sunday is Mother's Day in America, and this flower is for Minami, who is loved dearly by Grandma Penny and Grandpa Bud.

We will never forget.

Do not think that the world does not have its doctrines of justification, but not by faith in the blood of Christ. It is justification by whim and political advantage.

During the 90's liberals justified the lying and the repeated fornication and sexual assaults of Bill Clinton and attacted viciously those who deemed them immoral and a disqualification for office.

Now these same people are justifying the bitter hatred and racism of the pseudo-minisster Jefferson Wright whose church Obama joined in ordr to gain politcial advantage.

Of course liberals have morals only when it suits their politics and then only those morals that suit their purpose. They can change them like actors changing costumes in 15-second blackouts..
