The Watercooler ~ RedState's Daily Open Thread

Well, it’s official now. The U.S. Postal Service will discontinue Saturday mail delivery beginning in August. We’ve seen this one coming for a long time. The government for some strange reason has a hard time competing with the private sector.

In case you missed it, Jim DeMint showed up on Neil Cavuto’s show yesterday under the title, President-elect of the Heritage Foundation. It was reassuring seeing his face. He didn’t say too much other than that the government has a spending problem that needs to be dealt with. He looked refreshed. It must have been an indescribable nightmare being in the Senate the last few years with Harry Reid sabotaging and blocking them from doing their jobs. I look forward to hearing more from him. He’s definitely someone we can trust.

I have a little treat to go with the scriptures I put up today. Margaret Becker is one of my all-time favorite gospel singers ever. I hope everyone’s okay with me doing this — posting scriptures each day. I’m trying to keep them relevant and uplifting as we deal with so many perplexing problems. We need to know that no matter what the government is or isn’t doing, God is still in control and we can trust Him with our lives.

Here’s a little potpourri from the book of Hebrews:

For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness and their sins and their iniquities I will remember no more. How much more shall the blood of Christ who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? For without the shedding of blood, there is no remission (forgiveness) of sin. Hebrews 8:12, 9:14,22b

Innocence. There’s nothing like it.
