    Israel

    That's the kind of thing that never ends good.




    My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.
    For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; the flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land; the fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.


    Baruch haba b'Shem Yahweh!!

    The skeeters are supposed to be sterile males that effectively cause the breeding population to die off. The males aren't the ones that feed on warm blooded types like people trying to enjoy a cookout.

    Does kind of make 'ya wonder what they're gonna do with all the hungry bats....

    I saw that movie, it ends with people running and screaming, cats being stepped on and women and children pushed out of the way.
    Don't panic! Just be Rapture Ready.

    Joel 3:2

    I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel, because they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land.

    Ya, what was it they said in jurasic park, life will find a way.

    Have we learned nothing from the last 30 years of science fiction movies??
    For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 1 Cor 1:18

    Hmmm... they took a page from Satan and all his promotion of homosexuality to damage God's creation. The word abomination (or Obama-nation) comes to mind.

    I think you misunderstand. The scientists didn't "create" homosexual males.

    The sterile male mosquitoes breed with the females. The result is no little skeeters due to sterility not queerness.

    Ahhh, I see. They created eunuchs, so-to-speak.

    We always say you can tell if a mosquito or fly is from Texas.....they have "USAF" painted on their sides

    We are in the Houston area and I went out to cut the grass during a reprieve from the rain yesterday around 10--trying to get it done before it went over 99--and I swear I had a target on my head, chest and back and was dive bombed by them!

    They are ENORMOUS right now and they are biting HARD! It's horrible! Pray for me. I go out twice a week to mow these days and they seem to think I am a meal!

    I have always considered them to be the state bird of Texas, personally.

    You can bet a can of bugspray is coming on the Bible handouts.

    " I have had an increasing burden to engage in some down and dirty, street evangelism." March 6, 2010

    Isaiah 6:8 I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “ Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?”

    Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”

    Matthew 22:9 NIV
    'So go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.’


    I'm praying for you daily!
    I get my Bibles here

    Also hope you wash down in some sort of repellant. I use the stuff for babies because of sensitive skin, but it works!
