    Changes Coming!

    Ths Son-Day Post will be moving soon. You won’t have to find it because I’m going to move the URL to a new host. I’m not at all happy with GoDaddy as a host. It’s been adding advertisements to my home page and restructuring pages. The “You may also like” links are added by GoDaddy I think. I didn’t put them on the page. You will notice a new look to the blog. It will be styled cleaner. More photographs will be used. I’m working on a new banner as well. So, look for changes starting next month or maybe sooner. I’m planning a YouTube channel as well as the…

    Thoughts on the Past Week

    If The Son-Day Posts was a nonprofit, I couldn’t write this blog without fear of losing the nonprofit status. The events of the past week are so horrific that I need to comment on them because they apply to Christians and the Christian message to today’s society. I’ve been saying for a long time now that the Republicans who protected President Trump when he was impeached and prevented his removal from office made a serious mistake. They gave the fake Fuhrer the idea that they would support him no matter what he did and no matter the consequences. All actions have consequences either good or bad. The Republicans are now…

    The Light at the End of the Tunnel

    This week’s blog is going to be news and insights about where this blog is going in the coming year. I’ll be back to normal next week. We can see the light at the end of the tunnel again, and this time it’s not an on-coming train. Two vaccines have been approved and distribution has started. So, the virus should be contained within the next six months or so. If Trump keeps making unreasonable excuses for not signing the relief bill, President Biden will sign it when he takes office soon. The flu pandemic was contained, so was the black plague, and polio. And COVID-19 is on its way out…

    The First Christmas

    I have heard all my life that the British are the acknowledged masters of reserve and understatement. But they can’t hold a candle to the apostle Luke. His account of Mary becoming the mother of Jesus, God on earth, is the ultimate in understatement. Luke Mentions that Mary and Joseph had to go to Bethlehem to be taxed, because Joseph was in the house of King David, and Bethlehem is also called the city of David. Luke then tells of the angel with the glory of God shining around him coming to the shepherds and telling them “unto you is born this day in the City of David the Savior…

    The Significance of Christmas

    Most people know that Christmas signifies the birth of Christ Jesus. But most people don’t understand the full significance of the holiday. The birth of Jesus started an earthly chain of events that’s still continuing. About 33 years after Jesus’ birth God would start a new contract with people, a new way of relating to Him. The old contract (Old Testament)was finished and a much better one started when Jesus died on the cross in our place, and then rose from the grave. The whole purpose of God being born into the world in human form was to die on the cross for us so that we have an opportunity…

    What God’s Providence Means to You

    God’s providence is the foundation of the Christian’s relationship with God. Your functioning as a Christian in this world depends on His providence. The word providence is used only once in the Bible. Acts 24:2 uses the word in relation to the Roman governor Felix when the Jewish priests were accusing Jesus. It’s used in relation to his care over the Jews. The priest was buttering Felix up, complimenting him before making the accusations against Jesus. However, God’s providence is demonstrated continually throughout the Bible. Last week’s blog started the subject of providence. If you haven’t read it, you need to read it first, or at least go back and…

    God’s providence and the Pandemic: Part 1

    The COVID-19 pandemic has understandably made people stressed to the point of unreasonableness. Businesses are closing down due to the financial burdens caused by not being able to operate. People are losing their jobs and are in risk of losing their homes. Food lines for low income people and the homeless are now crowded with middle income people who are now financially dependent on assistance. Hospitals are running at near capacity. Last week a woman who suffered a mild heart attack she should have recovered from died because the paramedics could not find a hospital with a bed available. And, more of this will occur in the near future. I…

    The Meaning of Thanksgiving

    Most people think of Thanksgiving as a uniquely United States holiday celebrating the safe 66-month passage of the Pilgrims from Europe to the New World, and their safely weathering the hardships of establishing the first colony. However, Thanksgiving is also celebrated for the preceding year’s harvest in Canada, Brazil, Granada, St. Lucia and Liberia. Germany and Japan have similar holidays. In the United States, the earliest recorded Thanksgiving celebrations were by the Pilgrims and Puritans in 1619 and in Virginia in 1621. Governor Bradford, Va., held a Thanksgiving celebration and feast in 1625, but it wasn’t a regular event until the late 1660s. President Lincoln set Thanksgiving’s date to the…

    How to Cope with COVID

    COVID has changed the way everyone in the world lives. We will never change back to the prepandamic state, so we have to adapt ourselves to a little different lifestyle. We can’t demonstrate against the virus because it doesn’t understand us, and it wouldn’t care if it did. And, demonstrating and rioting against the government that’s doing it’s best to keep the public safe is, as Spock would say, not logical. Pretending that the virus isn’t dangerous makes as much sense as pretending that you can cross a busy street by ignoring the traffic.. We will get back to a semi-normal lifestyle eventually. No one worries about the black plague…
