Looks like Jay-Z and Beyonce are married

It appears that Jay-Z and Beyonce have finally tied the knot.

There was a swirl of activity Friday at the rap mogul’s Tribeca apartment. Delivery trucks funneled in and out of the building, dropping off silver candelabras and white flowers. A white tent was set up on the roof, and stars including Beyonce’s former Destiny’s Child bandmates, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, along with Gwyneth Paltrow, were spotted arriving.

A swarm of media camped outside the building was in a state of frenzy, snapping and shouting at any sport-utility vehicle that drove down the cobblestone street.

Heeding Labor’s Demand?
By Robert D. Novak

WASHINGTON, D.C. — President Bush next week will send
Congress a trade agreement forcing Democrats there to make
an unpleasant choice. Will they follow the bidding of
organized labor and reject a pact negotiated more than a
year and a half ago with the country’s strongest ally and
best customer in South America?

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi does not want to make her
members cast votes on the Colombian Free Trade Agreement.
It is unconditionally opposed by the AFL-CIO, which is
uninterested in negotiating changes. But to forget about
a vote this year as Pelosi wants would be akin to an out-
right rejection in its international implications. It
would humiliate Colombian President Alvaro Uribe, a free-
trader and a bulwark against the spreading influence in
Latin America of Venezuela’s leftist strongman President
Hugo Chavez.

The difficulty in getting only about 30 House Democrats to
provide the needed margin of victory reflects the Demo-
cratic Party’s abandonment of free trade over the past
half-century. Less obvious, labor’s intense opposition
shows that the AFL-CIO no longer leads the way against the
far left throughout the world, as it did under George
Meany and Lane Kirkland in bygone years. Their successors
are not concerned with the prospect of Chavez, allied with
communist Cuba, dominating the Western Hemisphere.

Colombia has fought a long, successful battle against
leftist guerillas supported and financed by Chavez. As a
faithful U.S. ally, Uribe has been astounded by the fate
of the trade agreement. Since it was signed in November
2006, not one congressional hearing has been held. To
please Democrats, U.S. Trade Representative Susan Schwab
has gone back to Bogota and won changes on labor and en-
vironmental issues. Even now, she is willing to add trade
adjustment subsidies for displaced workers in quest of a
bipartisan deal. But nothing budges labor.

Schwab’s pleas to Democrats are about bread and butter.
The agreement removes a $200,000 tariff on Caterpillar
off-road tractors going into Colombia, producing thousands
of jobs for Americans. Under the Andean Trade Preference
Act recently extended by Congress, Colombia has nearly
total duty-free access into the United States, but the
AFL-CIO insists it cannot approve the agreement because
of the way Colombian unions are persecuted.

A rare insight into what the Uribe regime really thinks
is going on was provided me by Vice President Francisco
Santos on one of the many trips to Washington by senior
Colombian officials to court congressional support. Santos
told me Chavez’s controlled labor unions in Venezuela are
in close touch with Colombia’s leftist unions, who in turn
influence the AFL-CIO. Thus, the labor intransigence in
Washington can be traced to Caracas.

An AFL-CIO delegation to Colombia in mid-February headed
by Linda Chavez-Thompson met with Uribe, who promised to
deal with alleged violence against Colombian labor leaders.
But the Americans spent most of their time with their
Colombian compatriots, who recited horror stories of
persecution. After the visit, the AFL-CIO Executive Council
announced on March 4, “Should it come up for a vote this
year, we will mobilize the unions and the resources of the
federation to defeat it.”

Rep. Sander Levin, a longtime labor stalwart from Michigan
who has become the vicar of protectionism as chairman of
the House Subcommittee on Trade, has called Bush’s decision
to send the trade agreement to Congress “a step backward.”
That implies a step away from a bipartisan accord, but what
the Democratic leadership wants is no action at all.

This attitude cannot be removed from the contest between
Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton over who hates most the
North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). At a Johnstown,
Pa., town meeting last weekend, a questioner blamed NAFTA
for local jobs outsourced to India. Obama had to politely
remind the questioner that the treaty concerned Mexico and
Canada, not India, before getting in his licks against

There are enough Democratic politicians embarrassed by
protectionist sloganeering that they would be inclined to
support the Colombian agreement — were it not for labor’s

How many Democrats in Congress will qualify
for a profile in courage by not heeding the AFL-CIO’s
dictates on the Colombian Free Trade Agreement?

Knowing, Believing, & Trusting In God’s Word Is The Beginning of the
Eternal Relationship. ..

April 16th

While you have the light, believe in the light . . . ��� �����John 12:36

We all have moments when we feel better than ever before, and we say, “I feel fit for anything; if only I could always be like this!” We are not meant to be. Those moments are moments of insight which we have to live up to even when we do not feel like it. Many of us are no good for the everyday world when we are not on the mountaintop. Yet we must bring our everyday life up to the standard revealed to us on the mountaintop when we were there.

Never allow a feeling that was awakened in you on the mountaintop to evaporate. Don��� �����t place yourself on the shelf by thinking, “How great to be in such a wonderful state of mind!” Act immediately��� ����� do something, even if your only reason to act is that you would rather not. If, during a prayer meeting, God shows you something to do, don��� �����t say, “I��� �����ll do it”��� ����� just doit! Pick yourself up by the back of the neck and shake off your fleshly laziness. Laziness can always be seen in our cravings for a mountaintop experience; all we talk about is our planning for our time on the mountain. We must learn to live in the ordinary “gray” day according to what we saw on the mountain.

Don��� �����t give up because you have been blocked and confused once��� ����� go after it again. Burn your bridges behi
nd you, and stand committed to God by an act of your own will. Never change your decisions, but be sure to make your decisions in the light of what you saw and learned on the mountain.

Evening … References:- ->Psalm 28:9
Lift them up for ever. God’s people need lifting up. They are very heavy by nature. They have no wings, or, if they have, they are like the dove of old which lay among the pots; and they need divine grace to make them mount on wings covered with silver, and with feathers of yellow gold. By nature sparks fly upward, but the sinful souls of men fall downward. O Lord, “lift them up for ever!” David himself said, “Unto Thee, O God, do I lift up my soul,” and he here feels the necessity that other men’s souls should be lifted up as well as his own. When you ask this blessing for yourself, forget not to seek it for others also. There are three ways in which God’s people require to be lifted up. They require to be elevated in character. Lift them up, O Lord; do not suffer Thy people to be like the world’s people! The world lieth in the wicked one; lift them out of it! The world’s people are looking after silver and gold, seeking their own pleasures, and the gratification of their lusts; but, Lord, lift Thy people up above all this; keep them from being “muck-rakers, ” as John Bunyan calls the man who was always scraping after gold! Set thou their hearts upon their risen Lord and the heavenly heritage! Moreover, believers need to be prospered in conflict. In the battle, if they seem to fall, O Lord, be pleased to give them the victory. If the foot of the foe be upon their necks for a moment, he
lp them to grasp the sword of the Spirit, and eventually to win the battle. Lord, lift up Thy children’s spirits in the day of conflict; let them not sit in the dust, mourning for ever. Suffer not the adversary to vex them sore, and make them fret; but if they have been, like Hannah, persecuted, let them sing of the mercy of a delivering God. We may also ask our Lord to lift them up at the last! Lift them up by taking them home, lift their bodies from the tomb, and raise their souls to Thine eternal kingdom in glory.

Morning … References:- ->1 Peter 1:19
The precious blood of Christ. Standing at the foot of the cross, we see hands, and feet, and side, all distilling crimson streams of precious blood. It is “precious” because of its redeeming and atoning efficacy. By it the sins of Christ’s people are atoned for; they are redeemed from under the law; they are reconciled to God, made one with Him. Christ’s blood is also “precious” in its cleansing power; it “cleanseth from all sin.” “Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow.” Through Jesus’ blood there is not a spot left upon any believer, no wrinkle nor any such thing remains. O precious blood, which makes us clean, removing the stains of abundant iniquity, and permitting us to stand accepted in the Beloved, notwithstanding the many ways in which we have rebelled against our God. The blood of Christ is likewise “precious” in its preserving power. We are safe from the destroying angel under the sprinkled blood. Remember it is God’s seeing the blood which is the true reason for our being spared. Here is comfort for us when the eye of faith is dim, for God’s eye is still the same. The blood of Christ is “precious” also in its sanctifying influence. The same blood which justifies by taking away sin, does in its after-action, quicken the new nature and lead it onward to subdue sin and to follow out the commands of God. There is no motive for holiness so great as that which streams from the veins of Jesus. And “precious,” unspeakably precious, is this blood, because it has an overcoming power. It is written, “They overcame through the blood of the Lamb.” How could they do otherwise? He who fights with the precious blood of Jesus, fights with a weapon which cannot know defeat. The blood of Jesus! sin dies at its presence, death ceases to be death: heaven’s gates are opened. The blood of Jesus! we shall march on, conquering and to conquer, so long as we can trust its power!
Matthew 8:14(14) And when Jesus was come into Peter’s house, he saw his wife’s mother laid, and sick of a fever.
Mark 1:30(30) But Simon’s wife’s mother lay sick of a fever, and anon they tell him of her.
Luke 4:38(38) And he arose out of the synagogue, and entered into Simon’s house. And Simon’s wife’s mother was taken with a great fever; and they besought him for her.
The mention of “Peter’s wife’s mother” proves that Peter was married. His wife was likely still living, as Paul later asks in I Corinthians 9:5, “Do we have no right to take along a believing wife, as do also the other apostles, the brothers of the Lord, and Cephas?” This indicates that several of the apostles were married during their ministries.
Erroneously, Roman Catholics claim Peter to be the rock on which the church was built, the vicar of Christ, and the first Pope. How can they maintain, then, that it is wrong for “priests” to marry? If this were a sin, why did Christ not immediately reject Peter as an apostle, since he had a wife? It seems incredible that the Catholic Church would teach that Peter was its “first Pope,” a model to all his successors, yet forbid its priests to marry despite his being a married man!
Priestly celibacy is specifically contrary to New Testament teaching (I Timothy 4:1, 3). Paul instructs, “A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, . . . one who rules his own house well, having his children in submission with all reverence (for if a man does not know how to rule his own house, how will he take care of the church of God?)” (I Timothy 3:2, 4-5). Scripture makes no objection to God’s ministers having a wife. As Hebrews 13:4 declares, “Marriage is honorable among all.”
