    We need to
    Have unity not
    Just in the
    World and in the
    USA but also.
    In that of the.
    Inner circles and
    In the small
    Ways you see.
  2. JPPT1974's Mon Thoughts 8/22/2016:

    God calls for
    Us to realize
    That we do
    Not need to
    Be over in the.
    Way of the.

  3. Genesis 25:32-34

    . Gen 25:32-33 . . And Esau said: I am at the point of death, so of

    . Gen 25:27c . . who stayed in camp.

    pastoral; they lived in tents and spent their whole lives working outdoors.
    Staying in camp only means Jacob would rather come on home when the
    day was over, take a hot shower, eat dinner with his family, brush his teeth,
    and sleep between clean sheets rather than needing a bath out under the
    stars on the ground with creepy-crawlies.
