Our duplex, units 3/4, the building has been razed (except for the 2 walls were are required to leave), the slab cut where a footer will be poured for the supporting wall, slab cut and all broken out around all water inlets where water and sewer is to be moved and all old concrete slabs and sidewalks broken up and removed.
This is going to be a tough fishing report for me to write because trout fishing on Lake Taneycomo is pretty slow, except if you're fly fishing below the dam while the water is off. Then it's pretty good.
There has been no generation during the day except in the evenings when dam operators might run a little "fish water" -- about 30 megawatts or a half-unit for a few hours. But this amount varies. Weekends it seems they're not running any at all.
We are about to start a major project here at Lilleys' Landing. We have several duplexes with lofts that were here when we bought the resort in 1983. We are taking one almost completely down and rebuilding it, expanding the footprint and making it all one level, no stairs. It will still be a duplex, with 2- 2 bedroom units with full kitchens. It's units #3/4.
While fall colors are emerging on the Taneycomo lakefront, the generation pattern has stayed the same. The only variance has been how much water has been kicked on about 3 p.m. every day. That amount is somewhere between 65 and 150 megawatts or from just over one unit up to three full units. Then the water has been back off by dark or 7 p.m.
When I perpetually find my deepest satisfaction from someone or something other than God, it is a sign I don't know God.
It is possible to acknowledge the existence of God while not truly knowing Him. This statement should make any Christian pause and think. If it doesn't, then pride has raised its ugly head. I should always consider this, "Do I really know God?" I'm solid in foundational issues, but it's the details that will always be foggy, partially understood, never fully known --until we stand face to face with the living God . Even then, it will take all of eternity to learn about Him. He's that big.
If we're going to address the subject of a sinful nature, we have to go back to Adam and the original sin. Adam's choice caused God to banish him and Eve from the garden and that was only the beginning of humanity's isolation from God. Sin did not merely change extermal conditions--something was terribly altered within us.
Paul speaks of sin as "spiritual death". He quotes old testament scripture:
