Spring is here and the butterflies are beginning to flutter signs of creation all over the Northern Hemisphere. The Wings of the Wind and its editor had an interesting week. On the blogging front:

Forced Adoption in the U.K. included this video:

The reason I put up the forced Adoption story was because my new friend Eugene Thinks He is Out of Options – Starting Hunger Strike Soon

https://chrisreimersblog.com/2016/05/16/to-be-an-example-we-must-follow-his-example/ is Rob Barkman discussing the topic. Rob has a very interesting blog entitled, “Settled in Truth Ministries.”

Divine Sovereignty by Steven J Lawson is another theologically correct article which can be found on Sherryn’s blog, “The Narrowing Path.” It is an easy to read article about a deep subject.

American-College-of-Pediatricians-e1459098066229American College of Pediatricians Slams Transgender Agenda in Children is an article from Dr. Chris Prunean’s Blog “Delight In Truth.” You will certainly not find this interesting article about the transgender subject anywhere in the mainstream media. “Why not?” is the question I have.

Review: Ashamed of the Gospel, by John MacArthur
I’ve been to Jim’s blog several times in the past. From this article, we appear like minded in the most important ways. I may have to try to get my hands on a copy of this now as Dan C. is reading it and, as it appears it may have some information on the “Downgrade controversy” in Spurgeon’s day of which I am not aware, I am curious.

Listen Here buttonSermon Link: The Godhead Revealed by Dr Martyn Llloyd-Jones is a wonderful sermon that I found at Sherryn’s blog. Here is a man who knew how to rightly divide the Word of God.

Marius si Ruth BodnariuGospel Herald – Norway’s Seizure of Five Children due to Parents’ ‘Bible-Based Parenting Style’ Questioned by Over 100 Lawyers and Politicians Worldwide is only part of the story of the wonderful Christian family pictured above.

Steven Bennett – SECRETS and LIES – Inside Barnevernet, Norway’s CPS is an article about the sad reality of Norway’s Child Protective Services.

Smooth Sailing ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah annOn Tranquil Seas ~ is Deborah Ann’s poem I chose to publish this week. This was a much needed drink at an oasis along my journey this week. God’s Word is, of course, my primary source of strength, but Deborah Ann’s Words are based on scripture.
This was the favorite verse of a college friend who went on to become a pastor.

On the substitute front, I was fortunate to spend 4 of my 5 days at Fountain Lake. I enjoyed it all, from 2nd grade on up. I got to go on the annual trip to Blakely Dam that the 4th graders have been taking for years. The 5th day I was a spanish teacher at Park Elementary. I welcomed the students with my limited knowledge of Spanish: “Buenos Dias.”

The joke of the week comes from Clayton:

“What do you call a speaker without speak?”

Pastor Barsan shares an interesting look into this celebratory day in Norway…

How to celebrate May 17th, Norway’s National Day
For many Norwegians, May 17th is even bigger than Christmas. Here are eight tips for getting the most out of the nation’s most important celebration.

Norwegians are the only people in Scandinavia who really go in for national pageantry, and May 17th is the day they pull out all the stops. “Syttende mai” as it’s known in the local vernacular is far and away the biggest street party Norway has all year, easily eclipsing New Year’s Eve.
Girls and women come out looking like Heidi in their colourful dirndl dresses, while the men and boys look like Georgian gentlemen in frock coats, top hats and 17th century shoes. Often, Norwegians will also sport the tartan pattern traditional to their home province.
Some of the costumes cost a ridiculous amount of money (more on that below), so all this dressing up is something…
