Deborah Ann has reached into God’s Word and pulled out another encouraging message. What a blessing it is to know our Creator is more than worthy of our simple Trust. I hope these words have blessed you as they have me.

Nothing is Too Hard ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

What is impossible,
for me and you
to God it’s not
too hard to do.

There is no promise,
God can’t fulfill
there is no fear
He can’t distill.

There is no prayer,
God can’t answer
there is no storm
He can’t anchor.

There is no problem,
God can’t resolve
there is no sin
He can’t absolve.

There is no place,
God can’t send revival
there is no enemy
He can’t bridle.

What is too hard,
for each one of us
is much easier . . .
when in God we trust!

Genesis 18:14

“Is any thing too hard for the Lord?
At the time appointed I will return
unto thee, according to the time of
life, and Sarah shall have a son.”

Jeremiah 32:17

“Ah Lord God! behold, thou hast made
the heaven and the earth by thy great
power and stretched out arm, and there
is nothing…

NOW AND FOREVER OUR DAUGHTER…SEEING ARIA TODAY

July 19, 2016

Aria holds the bubble maker for her daddy

Aria holds the bubble maker for her daddy


We had our two-hour visitation today with our precious little princess
It was again a wonderful meeting and we loved seeing her again. She seems to recognize us and was happy, very talkative and started playing with her mummy shortly after we arrived. We brought soap-bubbles she could play with, and she really thought this was funny. She wanted to put the bubbles into daddy and mommy’s mouth, laughing a lot We also brought a book with photos of us and her she can bring to the foster parents. It was really heartbreaking when Aria took the book, pointed at a picture of Vibeke and said “mummy”. She seemed quite independent of her confidence-person, and was not in need of any particular support from her.

Actually when the visitation was terminated after two hours, she started crying.

And we doubt anyone can understand and really comprehend how devastating it is to see your own daughter cry and not being allowed to comfort her because the visitation has finished.

We as Arias one and only parents are sure that she also knows there is a special bond between us, she can feel and sense it.

Her temper is much like her father-fearless, active, but her strong headedness she gets from both her parents Even not barnevernet can erase biology, and Aria can feel the connection. So do not make any mistakes-she is OUR daughter and she belongs in OUR family, not in a foster family. Now and forever!

Before the visitation, Barnevernet and the police made a huge mistake and the visitation almost cancelled.

The scheduled visitation was cancelled, but first after we actually showed up at the location.

There we were met by the leader of Lørenskog Barnevern Arnfinn Heimstad who explained it and made some excuses.
Suddenly he was not afraid of Arias father any more, very strange we must add.

We had off course been looking forward to the visitation and hardly slept anything the night before.

When we got back home, Barnevernet made a phone call to us where they re-scheduled the visitation to later the same day.
Because the police did not have the time, they hired private security-guards and even paid for our taxi-expenses.

So for the first time they actually cleaned up their own mess, which was a first positive experience.

And so to finish it off, Mette Lisbet Haugen, the hired contractor, praised us many times after the visitation.

And also Aria many times during the visitation, so today we are not only full of love towards our dear baby Aria as parents, but also proud parents…
BUT TO BE CLEAR on that WE ARE PROUD parents of ARIA every second and every day, SHE is the result of our love and now and forever will she be the love of our life.

Anyone who has been following this story will have mixed emotions when reading about this visitation. This beautiful little girl only gets to see her parents two hours 3 or 4 times a year. This family was never given a chance to start life together as Baby Aria was taken from her parents in the first days of her life. The charges made by the Norwegian authorities against these parents are a mix of outrageous and mysterious. There is no good reason that Aria is in foster care. As the numbers of children removed from Norwegian parents are reported to be increasing each year, more families find themselves in the same situation as Ken and Vibeke.

JERUSALEM

July 16, 2016

“…and so all Israel will be saved; just as it is written,
‘The Deliverer will come from Zion,
He will remove ungodliness from Jacob.’” – Romans 11:26

So why is a large part of Israel not Christian at the posting of this brief article?

The answer is written in the verse that precedes the verse above. Romans 11:25 states:

“For I do not want you, brethren, to be uninformed of this mystery—so that you will not be wise in your own estimation—that a partial hardening has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in”

Darrell Mansfield tells the Jews that “Your King is this Man from Galilee” in this song.

I enjoyed Darrell’s walk through the streets of Jerusalem in this 30 year old music video.

Darrell Mansfield was once a young man in search of meaning in life. His search ended at the foot of the cross of Jesus Christ after some difficult times in his youth. This early music video was Filmed on location in Jerusalem, September 1986.

I agree with Dr. J. Vernon McGee that these verses are talking about literal Jews (Israelites). I also agree on his commentary involving these verses:

Romans 11 ‘Thru the Bible’ with Dr. J. Vernon McGee
(Click on #8 if you wish to hear Dr. McGee’s commentary on Romans 11:26…It wouldn’t take long to listen to the commentary on the rest of the chapter, too!)

I am watching the tiny little country of Israel become more isolated from the rest of the world. Many former friends have and are leaving them. I will always be a friend to the nation of Israel because of an everlasting covenant that God make with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. I believe that the Bible teaches that God will eventually intervene on their behalf. How He does that remains to be seen. One thing I am not concerned about is the destruction of the Israelites. It will not happen.

BABY CASPIAN KIDNAPPED IN NORWAY…UPDATE #7

July 12, 2016

Caspian and Nadia June 2016

Caspian and Nadia
June 2016


It is almost a week since an update appeared here. There are a few events worth noting that have happened since then.

Nadia was allowed to see Caspian last Thursday and Friday.

According to an accurate source, Nadia thought that the visitations went very well. Caspian remembered Nadia on the first visit. Nadia was concerned before the visit that Caspian might not remember her very well.

Nadia has also been given visitations for every Thursday and Friday until her next court hearing.

A new date has been added to Nadia’s court schedule.

Nadia’s lawyer has sent her a text message. Apparently, a court hearing at an undisclosed location will be held on the 8th of August. This hearing will determine whether or not Caspian will be allowed to go home with Nadia until the permanent care order case is heard on August 25th.

The August 25th hearing will be heard in Bergen.

—————————

My thoughts:

Tomorrow, it will be a month since Caspian was kidnapped from his mother by the organization that is responsible for the proper care of abused children in Norway.

There has been no abuse of this child in this case. This is why the term “kidnapping” fits the situation in its current condition.

I have looked up the word “kidnap” in the dictionary. Here is a general definition that seems to summarize definitions of the word that I have read from dictionaries, Federal law, and International law.

“In criminal law, kidnapping is the unlawful taking away or transportation of a person against that person’s will, usually to hold the person unlawfully. This may be done for ransom or in furtherance of another crime, or in connection with a child custody dispute.”

In this case, Caspian’s legal guardian, Nadia, did not wish for her child to be taken. As there is no valid reason yet given for Caspian to be taken away from his mother, Caspian has been kidnapped.

Caspian has not yet been “stolen” from his mother as this would have to be the new term used if Nadia’s child is taken away permanently.
If Nadia has done anything wrong, maybe a reprimand of some type or counseling sessions might be necessary. However,

ACCORDING TO THE DEFINITION OF “KIDNAP” ABOVE, IT IS A CRIMINAL ACT TO “TAKE AWAY” CASPIAN FROM NADIA FOR THE REASONS GIVEN IN THIS CASE.

Also, note that this publication is not aware of any public statement made on this case by the Barnevernet, the organization responsible for this kidnapping which happened almost a month ago.

In a democracy, one is innocent until proven guilty. If this case had any merit, the penalty would be far less in any civilized society.

So…Nadia waits until Thursday to see Caspian. She will then have to wait until August 8th to find out if Caspian can stay with her until the important court hearing on August 25th. It seems that the August 25th hearing will determine Caspian’s future.

Please pray for Nadia and Caspian.

“THE TRUTH OF THE LORD IS EVERLASTING”

July 11, 2016

Psalm 117 is the shortest chapter in the Bible. Its two verses are powerful and instructive:

1 Praise the Lord, all nations;
Laud Him, all peoples!

2 For His lovingkindness is great toward us,
And the truth of the Lord is everlasting.
Praise the Lord!


TRUTH TWISTED

July 10, 2016

There are many definitions of the word “twisted.”

Most would agree that the two definitions listed here fit the general idea of the term:

1) forced out of its natural or proper shape; crumpled.
synonyms: perverted, warped, deviant, depraved, corrupt, abnormal, unhealthy, aberrant, distorted, corrupted, debauched, debased, disturbed

2) (of a personality or a way of thinking) unpleasantly or unhealthily abnormal; warped.

A somewhat “twisted” catalog arrived in the mail today. It wasn’t a catalog making available a number of twisted things that are popular in our secular world today.

It was a 60+ page catalog filled with popular books available at reasonable prices. “Why was it twisted?” you might ask. Sadly, it was twisted because it had the term “Christian” at the top of it.

Looking through the catalog, one finds popular names in the “Christian” world. Some names are well known because of television appearances, others because their teachings are followed by many. A “Christian” catalog that is filled with writings by authors that teach unchristian ideas is…twisted.

This is a three hour documentary. The recommendation is to watch the first few minutes. If you are curious about how Biblical Christians understand the truth, you may want to watch more. The points made throughout this documentary contrast Christian beliefs with “new ideas” (really not that new) that the “church” is evolving. Many who believe in this “evolution” call themselves “emerging” or “emergent”.

The catalog received in the mail includes for sale books by more than one teacher with “new” ideas. Books like these can be found in almost every Christian bookstore.

The purpose of this post is to educate Christians who may not be aware of false teachers who are active and numerous in our day. Those who take the name “emerging” or “emergent” usually see something wrong with historical Christianity and do not preach the simple gospel message found in the Bible.

Our world is full of twisted things. To some, good is seen as evil and to some evil is seen as good.

This blog has recently been focused on an organization that twists words to suit its cruel purposes.

This blog has also had a theme about the results of turning away from Godly principles.

This question has been asked more than one time here: “How can God bless a nation that has turned its back on Him?”

Recently, this blog has broadened this question to ask, “How can God bless a world that has turned its back on Him?

These are questions that every person should consider.

Some of the emergents make good points about the lack of sincerity in certain “brands” of Christianity. Some of the questions they have are good, but they don’t seem to have good answers. These “teachers” only create more questions than answers.

The true church of Jesus Christ faces many challenges in today’s world. This is no surprise to the Christian as there are many verses in the Bible that “speak” about difficulties Christians will confront at times.

If you are not a Christian, but you like words and the meanings of words and you enjoy learning about different philosophies, this documentary may interest you.

If you are a Christian, you should be familiar with this subject as it or many things like it are popping up in the strangest places. One example is the catalog that many Christians receive on a regular basis. It is a catalog featuring many books with twisted ideas.

BABY CASPIAN KIDNAPPED IN NORWAY…UPDATE #6

July 6, 2016
Caspian and Nadia June 2016

Caspian and Nadia
June 2016

JUST A FEW MINUTES AGO (at approximately 10:30 am Norway time, July 6th), NADIA INFORMED ME THAT: “They called me from Barnevernet, and I can see him next week. They also want a meeting..”

The following update was almost complete when the news came in! This experience becomes more like a serious roller-coaster ride as time passes. Is this the way all Barnevernet “clients” are treated??? Most of the cases that I’m aware of have had similarities to this case, particularly in an apparent lack of communication by the Barnevernet. Each case is unique and should be treated as such.

Just a few minutes ago, Nadia had no idea when she would next see Caspian.

*******Update*******

Caspian is no longer with those who love him the most. Nadia, his mother, continues to be devastated.

The picture above is one of the last taken of mother and child together before Monday, June 13th, 24 days ago. Nadia describes in her own words what happened on that day:

“Suddenly came the day I had feared. Police and child welfare stood at the door and forced their way in to get my little prince lying in his bed.” (These words can be seen in the video below)

Nadia also wrote this recently:

“I carried him for 9 months in my stomach,
I loved him from the first moment I heard his heart”

Although the Wings of the Wind is still not aware of any public statement made by any source responsible for the separation of this child from this mother, statements of the defense lawyer have been made public.

Nadia’s lawyer, Harald Grape, writes about the hearing:

“It is recalled that child welfare leader, who met in committee, substantiated his opinion of the Caspian, he will dwell with mother at Hennum would not suffer as required by law. It was pointed journal dated 14th June where it appears that “Whether she should get the child back there is no reason to believe that the baby will suffer any direct overload…”

“How Tribunal has reached this is quite incomprehensible although one assumes reports to Vilde. Vilde was worried about Caspian had a “nascent lopsided development” based on reports that the tribunal had not will be accessible under the committee meeting.” (Google Translate)

“After our stay at Hennum it is quite obvious that Caspian has not got lopsided development. Firstly refer to a medical certificate dated 14 June 2016 from the doctor Ingvild Setså. It appears here that the Caspian provide very good contact, smiles and is very active, good general condition. He was a healthy and active boy who provide very good contact. This is a clear indicator that the Caspian in the five weeks he was with his mother after staying at Vilde developed well.” (Google Translate)

As noted in the last update the doctor, Ingvild Setså, was approved by the Barnevernet.

Mr. Grape continues:

“The Tribunal writes: ‘if the child is going back to his mother, he will again experience instability and fracture, which will be an additional burden for him'” (Google Translate)

“..it is quite obvious that the biological principle (is) no longer employed by the county boards in Norway. This violates the ECHR.” (The European Convention on Human Rights). (Google Translate)

This hearing took place on at The County Council for Child Welfare and Social Affairs (Fylkesnemnda) in Molde, Norway on Thursday, June 23rd.

Nadia was informed on Monday, June 27th that Caspian was to be kept by Norway’s Barnevernet (Child Protection Services).

Apparently, an appeal by Mr. Grape will not be heard.

Nadia will have to wait until August 25th for the next hearing in the case.

A protest will be held this Friday, July 8th, in Warsaw, Poland, for parents like Nadia. The protest is being held in conjunction with the NATO Summit Warsaw 2016 which will be attended by leaders from all over the world.
_________________________________

My thoughts:

As this account continues to unfold, I am continually amazed at the circumstances under which this has happened.

If the translation is correct, Mr. Grape (Nadia’s lawyer) has made several important points:

First, he notes that a “child welfare leader, who met in committee, substantiated his opinion of …Caspian…It was pointed journal dated 14th June (the day after Caspian was taken from his crib) where it appears that ‘Whether she should get the child back there is no reason to believe that the baby will suffer any direct overload…'”

So, it seems that in the hearing on the 14th a “child welfare leader” thought there was “no reason to believe that the baby will suffer any direct overload” if “she (Nadia) should get the child back.”

Second, Mr. Grape noted “How Tribunal has reached this is quite incomprehensible.”

Mr. Grape didn’t understand why the judge made such a decision and the only thing that was evident as the cause was the decision made at Vilde, the day after Nadia and Caspian left.

It is important to remember that the “Tribunal” consisted of one man.

Third, the term “nascent lopsided development” seems to be the term that The Vilde Mothers’ Home (Parent and Childcare center) used in the police report when Nadia was found missing. It appears that the judge in Molde made his decision on this report alone.

I looked up the word “nascent” in a dictionary. It means “just coming into existence and beginning to display signs of future potential.”

So, if I’m reading this correctly, Caspian was taken from his mother because some “lopsided development” was just beginning to show.

Every baby has its own personality. To take a child from his biological mother for such a reason is inhumane.

Fourth, Ingvild Setså (A doctor approved by the Barnevernet) checked Caspian’s health the day after he was kidnapped (it is the only term that fits well) from the Hennum home and his mother, Nadia. The doctor found Caspian to be in good health after being away from Vilde, enough to write some type of “medical certificate.”

Fifth, Mr. Grape writes that: “The Tribunal writes: ‘if the child is going back to his mother, he will again experience instability and fracture, which will be an additional burden for him…'”

So, one man called “The Tribunal” found a statement by a “Child Welfare leader;” the report of a doctor; and the eyewitness account (that is normally not taken) of the professional nurse, Margaret Hennum (it is also mentioned by Mr. Grape) to be inadmissible evidence in this case.

Also, as has already been noted, Caspian received a good health report on the day after he was taken. It appears obvious that the baby Caspian must have been getting very good care as noted by the doctor. How does this explain, “he will again experience instability?” This statement is made by the judge in spite of the fact that Caspian was receiving the best care of his young life at the home of Maraget Hennum.

Instead, “The Tribunal” used a report from the Vilde Center about some type of “”nascent lopsided development” to make his decision.

Also note that the phrase “he will AGAIN experience instability and fracture” is used.

After multiple reports that I’ve become aware of regarding the “Centers” where parents are observed (Nadia mentions cameras in the video below), if anything caused instability it was the environment that Nadia and Caspian were in for the first important months of Caspian’s life.

Sixth, these “Centers” are supposed to be voluntary. This is stated on the Barnevernet’s own website.

It doesn’t sound like Nadia wanted to be there.

Seventh, Mr. Grape writes his opinion: “This violates the ECHR,” The European Convention on Human Rights.

Norway has been admonished more than one time about human rights abuses similar to the ones in Nadiah’s and Caspian’s case. The words of the ECHR have fallen on deaf ears.

And last, Nadia has to wait until August 25th, as far as we know, to get another “hearing” in some type of court.

Where is Caspian? His own mother doesn’t know because the Barnevernet seems to think she is going to attempt to “kidnap” him. I have already used the term “kidnapped” here and it wasn’t in reference to Nadia.

Has Caspian been placed with potential foster care workers and is he now forming some kind of bond with them?

How do we know Caspian is receiving good care. Has there been another doctor’s report?

Is the Barnevernet watching Caspian as intently as it did at Vilde? It they are, it is unhealthy. Constant surveillance for the purpose of observation is intrusive at best. A loving parent is best suited to watching the child to insure its safety and welfare.

Will the Barnevernet ever take the The European Convention on Human Rights violation reports regarding Norway seriously?

There are other questions, but enough have been asked for now.
————————–

I JUST HEARD FROM NADIA AGAIN. (It is now almost 8 pm in Norway.) THERE WAS SOME SORT OF MISUNDERSTANDING AND NADIA’S MEETING WITH CASPIAN IS TOMORROW, THURSDAY, JULY 7.

I asked Nadia where the meeting was and how far she had to travel. Here was her reply:

“I will have to travel to Bergen. It’s far away.. I have to drive 40 minutes, then take a airplane, then a bus for maybe 1 hour. They say they want a meeting on Friday.”

Nadia was in a hurry as she needed to prepare for the trip and said good-bye with a smiley face. She has had such a good attitude, as far as I can tell, after all she has been through.

So, she has to hurry to make a long trip so that she can see Caspian tomorrow in Bergen and then she will go to some kind of meeting with Barnevernet officials on Friday.

What if Nadia couldn’t make the meeting for one reason or another, maybe because of time or financial constraints? Would this be held against her to add to the non-existent evidence for taking Caspian in the first place. One can only wonder…and pray.
————————————–

Nadia and another victim of Norway’s CPS recently made and published the following video. If you haven’t seen it, I would recommend it. If you have seen it, you may want to watch it a second time. I have. It is a “picture with words” that tells the story of a mother who is very concerned for the well-being of her child.
