Come Together

hurricaneWhile we debate and debase the actions of NFL millionaires, thousands of people in the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico are discussing how long it will be–estimates are in months, not days or weeks–before they have power, and how long their food supplies will hold out. At the same time, a lot of people on the Florida, Texas, and Louisiana coasts are wondering if their lives will ever be the same again. But! In all those places, and other places suffering from the wrath of mother nature, people–most of them–are working together and helping each other to recover and put their lives back together. I know a couple that live in the Virgin Islands, and they’re not complaining, they’re going out every day and helping people who are in worse shape than they are.
I want to add one more thing: This is the first and last time I will ever publicly mention the NFL/Flag issue. In the overall scheme of things, it means nothing. We have bigger fish to fry, and there are a lot of people out there who need a hot meal.
We’ve prayed, and that’s a good thing, but the time has come to get up off our knees, come together, and help people–anywhere, and any way we can.
Just sayin’.

You Say You Want a Revolution?

I used to view the political strife in this country as a series of revolutions; when one side is in power, the other side revolts and regains power, and then the other side revolts and regains power. But… it suddenly occurs to me it isn’t a series of revolutions, but a constant one. After all, a revolution is when we go full circle and wind up right back where we started. Right?dog-caught-tail

It’s Not About Money

The phrase, “In God we trust,” is constantly being bantered about on Facebook; as people post varying memes regarding the removing of it from our currency and various other items. Like this one for instance:money meme

Don’t get me wrong; I think it’s good that we collectively show our allegiance to God in the many ways we do, and I think it would be good if we continue to do so. But, I also believe that in the overall scheme of things it really doesn’t matter. Read the rest of this entry »

Who Are the Heroes?

This is an old post from four years ago, but a fellow blogger featured it this week, so I thought I’d re-post it. In the original post I said, “I can hardly watch TV these days; it reminds me too much of the real world, and it appears to me this world has gone to hell. I find myself looking around and wondering; where have all the heroes gone?” As I re-read this, the thought occurred to me; who are the heroes of the younger generation today?

They rode horses, wore white hats

Fought for what they believed was right

And ran the bad guys out of town

They looked out for their neighbors

Those who couldn’t defend themselves Read the rest of this entry »

Is It Too Late?

Today 6-10-2016 quote 3I love mornings, but there is no joy in my heart on this morning as I watch the sun coming up behind the trees. No, this morning there’s a lump in my throat, and an empty pain in my stomach. My mind is almost numb. Read the rest of this entry »

Walking Among the Wolves

MAN AND WOLF ~ quote

To venture forth into a dangerous world filled with those who do not know God and in some cases despise Him, is a daunting undertaking. But, if we keep our hearts and minds focused on the Lord, allowing Him to fill us with His Spirit, we can walk among the wolves without fear.

Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. Matthew 10:16
