The Sunday Message

I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people—for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. – 1 Timothy 2:1-2 (NIV)

I think it’s important that we pray for our leaders. I may not have voted for some of the leaders or even agree with them on many things, but I want them to be safe and for our city, county, state, and country to do well.

The Hill and other media reported that at President Trump’s rally in Ohio, Gary Click, a pastor, and member of the Ohio GOP’s State Central Committee, delivered the prayer ahead of Trump’s remarks, asking for God to “protect our President and his family with a shield of faith, Lord.”

That’s cool. I can agree with those words.

Caught My Eye…

In fact, as I know — as far as I know, I’m the first Press Secretary in the history of the United States that’s required Secret Service protection. – Sarah Huckabee Sanders 08/02/18

Welcome to the big show to end the week “Caught My Eye” (CME)!

If you are a first-time visitor, CME is posted right here every Friday morning. This is when I take a look at some of the stories I did not have time to write about during the week. I often throw in a touch of sarcasm to make you smile – or to irritate you just a little – maybe both.

Topics that I am providing commentary about today include the best haircut poll results, Debates, QAnon, and One More Thing featuring Kathleen Williams and Danni.

The Sunday Message

Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.Proverbs 22:6 (NKJV)

From CBS News in Denver

Haylie Wenke, her little brother Reagen, and friend Ashley Dayton were doing what some kids do on a hot summer day in Aurora on July 18, visiting their local park to cool off at the splash pad.

On the way home, they found a wallet under a car, so they picked it up and took it to the front door of the house. In a video posted to Facebook by Jamie Carlton from his doorbell camera, Haylie can be heard saying, “We found your wallet outside your car and we just thought we would give it back to you so I’m going to put it over here so nobody takes any money.”
