  1. Hey Carl,

    Hope all has been well with you and your family. We spent some time down in the US with my wife’s family, so it was a nice break.

    After reading through all the verses you posted, it amazes me how much the Jews had lost sight of the whole point of the Sabbath. Just like everything else, they added 100’s or restrictions which Jesus classes as man’s laws. They did the same thing with stringent guidelines how you had to wash everything. Jesus even showed how at one point, their man made laws negated the law of God. (The one where someone could call Corban to get out of doing their duty to their parents).

    God gave the first example of the point of the whole matter when he rested on the seventh day and sanctified it. It is a day to reflect on the wonderful works of creation and through creation be drawn to the one who created it all. It’s a day to worship God and relieve the suffering of the down trodden and sick. It’s a day to fellowship with our brethren and speak of the wonderful mercies of God.

    Jesus really showed us all how beautiful the law of God is. How it brings harmony and peace between U.S. and God, and us and our fellow brethren.

    Anyways these are just some of my thoughts on today’s post.

    God Bless

    1. Hey great to hear from you Cory. Glad you had some time in the USA.

      Always appreciate your comments. It is so true that we seek to add to the laws of God for some reason…

      Hey on a different topic, did you have any trouble crossing border or have any restrictions for quarantining? My son and his family is in Alberta and is hesitant to visit us in Tx. due to govt requirements during this pandemic.

      1. My wife is an American so she didn’t have any issues crossing. I had to fly across the border and have my wife pick me up in Seattle. There were no restrictions in Washington for incoming flights from Canada so we drove from there across the northern states to Michigan. I took a month off, so it made it worthwhile to drive 2500 miles.

        When we returned to Canada, we had to quarantine for two weeks. Things are a lot more locked down up here.

        If they fly to see you, they won’t run into any issues
