The Eagles lost to Peyton Manning today. That is the headline for tomorrow. The Eagles in short need to improve their defense. Another truth is that they played Peyton Manning and no sane thinking person would ever think that they would actually beat the Broncos. Manning gave us just what we all expected, Manning ball. Too experienced, two smart for sub par players to ever think they can stop him with a half hearted effort.
While were at it the Eagles need more wide receivers to step up, particularly in order to free up DeSean Jackson. They also need wide receivers who can catch the ball. They also need to find receivers who can protect the quarterback in this case, Mike Vick. But the reality is they need to fix a lot of positions. They are making entirely too many mistakes. And again the defense simply can’t stop anyone. Peyton Manning probably averaged at least 8 yards per possession
There you have it. The Eagles need to go back to work, find other players who will step up and find a way to win.
By now is appears to be a wrap as Andy Reid continuing his unbeaten streak and his 4th victory of the year, defeating the New York Giants 31-7. This time defeating the New York Giants. Who would have thought that the Giants would go 0-4 at the start of this season. We all know the Giants are slow starters and capable of putting everything together and going to the Super Bowl. They have done this more than once.
When Eli is on, he on and the Giants can't miss. But this start this year is a surprise. It a little too early to start talking about changes, but I am sure this is in the thoughts of all Giants fans. Furthermore for this to happen now, and the thought that the Giants possibly will not make the Super Bowl to be played at Met Life stadium next year is unthinkable.
But knowing Eli and the Giants they are capable of turning everything around. Don't count them out just yet.
Greg Oden is with the Miami Heat. With the problems with his knees over the past few years that is a blessing. Oden says he is taking it slow. The big center is a great addition to the Heat if he can stay Healthy, so that is the reclamation project for the Heat. How to keep Greg Oden healthy?
The cards are laid on the table and this is without a doubt a chance The Heat is willing to take. With the addition of Greg Oden, Michael Beasley, and Lamar Odom, the Heat have the pieces that can take them to a three peat, fairly easily. So these are the pieces of the puzzle that can take a tremendous load off LeBron James and Dewayne Wade. People say that the measure of true super star in the NBA is the number of championships, then put me down to say this quite possibly will be three peat for the Heat and for LeBron James.
In the mist of a situation or a trial we sometimes feel it will never end. In the mist of this trial, our situation, we are never sure of the outcome. Our mind ponders solutions. What if I did this or that? It seems if we assess the situation we will come upon a solution. Rational thinking as they say. Sometimes it works and we attribute it to rational thought processes and we are proud of ourselves.
In this moment we feel we can accomplish nearly anything. Then, we finally come to our sinces and realize the impossibility of the situation to play out for our good through human effort. That's when we know that we had help in the mist of the storm. That is the moment that that we realize we had God on our side, walking us through each step of the way.

On Sept. 23, 1952, Republican vice-presidential candidate Richard M. Nixon went on television to deliver what came to be known as the “Checkers” speech as he denied allegations of improper campaign financing.
On Sept. 22, 1862, President Abraham Lincoln issued the preliminary Emancipation Proclamation, declaring all slaves in rebel states should be free as of Jan. 1, 1863.
Lincoln’s Speech at Peoria, Illinois, 1854
” Slavery is founded in the selfishness of man’s nature- opposition to it is his love of justice. These principles are an eternal antagonism: and when brought into collision so fiercely, as slavery extensions brings them, shocks and throes, and convulsions must ceaselessly follow. Repeal the Missouri Compromise – repeal all compromises- repeal all past history, you still cannot repeal human nature. It still will be the abundance of man’s heart, that slavery’s extension is wrong; and out of the abundance of his heart, his mouth will continue to speak.”
We are a week away from the Affordable care act. God made a way for those of us who do not have insurance, are who have a pre-existent condition and can’t get insurance. However there are those in this world, who would like to sabotage God’s wishes perhaps because they have money in the bank, a way in and a way out. If this is you. Know that God has blessed you. Get on you knees right now and Give the Glory to God for His blessing, though His Son Jesus Christ.
But even those of us who don’t have the same blessing, we are still blessed the way the Lord has seen fit, through His Son our Savior Jesus Christ. I’m calling for a prayer, today, from all Americans. There are people hurting out here in this world. Perhaps a neighbor, perhaps even your love one,who needs a hand up and a way out, and more specifically, Health Insurance. I pray and know that Lord will prevail and give everyone who needs it Health Insurance, despite those who spitefully try to sabotage this Nobel effort. In Jesus Name we give all the Glory to God!
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love the Lord and are called according to his purpose.
Thank you Lord for your blessing, even in the mist of the trial. We often focus on the trial and not on what you want us to learn from the trial. What I have learned is that your love is infinite and it is true, for those who Love you and know your Son and our Savior Jesus Christ and are called according to your purpose. We give praise and honor to you Father God, for the sacrifices on Calvary of your Son Jesus Christ our Savior who took away the sins of the world. Because of that blessing, we have overcome satan and this fallen world. We give all the glory to you Father God and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ your Son. Because of His sacrifice I now have eternal life.
Thank you Lord for watching over your own in Jesus name I pray amen!
