Our country was founded on principles that all men are created equal. Our founding fathers were visionaries and sought to assure all citizens the rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. However, today we have groups that will deny others the right to life, deny others their liberty, and only think they themselves should be able to pursue happiness.

Friends, so much of what I see in our country today crushes these values America was built upon.

When a senator can shed tears on the senate floor because there is a policy to vet refugees from terror sponsored countries but remains dry eyed when millions of innocent babies are murdered in the womb—that is In-American.

When our homeless go hungry while illegal aliens can come into this count5ry and receive food stamps, welfare and shelter—that is Un-American

When our elderly much choose between eating or buying their medications while abortions and transgender surgeries are paid for with tax payer money—that is Un-American.

When our troops go without proper equipment while celebrities and athletes protest our country and national anthem—that is un-American.

When our veterans go without benefits that were promised but billions of dollars are given to countries that hate us—that is Un-American.

When Christian companies are forced to compromise their faith and values by serving same sex weddings while other businesses can say, “if you support traditional marriage, don’t shop here.”—that is Un-American.

When radical groups like BLM and anti fa can riot, burn cities and kill or injure people but citizens are prosecuted and persecuted for speaking out against them—that is Un-American.

When a black criminal disobeys law enforcement and is shot by police and there is a public outcry while police officers are shot everyday for doing their jobs and media is silent—that is Un-American.

When the media takes it upon itself to slant the news and tell us what to think instead of reporting the news and trusting us to decide for ourselves what to think—that is Un-American.

When liberal head explode at the use of word in describing a third world country while cities in this country resemble these third world countries and nothing is being done to improve the lives of citizens in these cities— that is Un-American.

When a political party would rather protect 8,000 illegal aliens than protect the citizens of this country and even go as far to threaten a government shut-down and deprive the elderly and military of their money— that is Un-American.

It appears that some of our leaders are more concerned about themselves and the special interest groups that has bought them out than the citizens that elected them and that is not only Un-American but unacceptable to the the citizens pf this country that are counting on the leadership.

Friends, I have been told that, as a Christian, I should not be political. I am not a political person but what I see goes beyond politics. It is now about our survival as a country and the fabric of our way of life. I once read “All it takes for evil to spread is for good men to do nothing.” I am only trying to do my small part to stop the spread of evil.

As always you are free to disagree but I am free to express my opinion. May God bless you all. . Just saying

An Open Letter To the Media

I know I have already posted this but with the recent “firestorm” from the media about President Trump allegedly calling Haiti and African countries “shitholes”, I think the media needs to be on the carpet again. While the left let their heads explode at the word he, according to the liberal demonrat Dick Durbin, said in a closed meeting, the real news of the country and the world passed them by with no word at all. I mean, when the unemployment is the lowest in years and the black unemployment rate is definitely the lowest, all they can talk about is a word that was supposedly used by President Trump. Come on media, if that is all you got, hang up your computers and go to work at McDonald's.

Dear CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NBC and ABC and all the other media outlets that do not report the news. Instead you pander to the liberals and their agendas by telling me what I ought to think and do. When I turn on my TV or radio and pick up a newspaper, I want to know what is really happening and not what you think I should know. I am old enough to make my own decisions about how to interpret the news. Yes, I know this might come as a surprise to you with your high intelligence and wisdom but some of us lowly Americans are just as intelligent as you and I dare say some are even more intelligent than you. “Gasp” the horror of thinking the average American has a brain and can actually exist and thrive outside the bubble you put us into.

I can actually remember the good old days of real newscasters like Walter Cronkite and Huntley and Brinkley. Yes, they actually just reported the facts and left their spin on the news out of their reports. They did not pontificate on how the American people should take the news but left it up to the listeners to make their own decisions. Those days, I'm afraid, are gone forever.

Today, I cannot find a news source that I can trust. Greed has taken over your industry and you pander to the big money giants that pay you the most money and get your ratings higher that your competitor. Do you remember the hurricane in Texas? The big “news story” was not the devastation caused by the storm. No, the big report was Melania's shoes. Are you kidding me? People were left without homes and some lost their lives but did you care to report on the tragedy that these people suffered? No, you criticized our First Lady on her choice of shoes! Did you report on the Americans coming together to help their fellowmen in this time of tragedy? No, you expressed disgust that Melania wore heels to Texas. I, for one, give the First Lady enough credit enough to know how to dress herself. She did not need me and definitely not you media pundits to tell her.

Sometimes you don't bother to slant your news stories. No, jokers like Lemon and Acosta out and out lie about what is happening. Lemon, Hillary is not the most transparent candidate in history. She should be arrested, tried and imprisoned for endangering American lives for profit and selling out this country to the highest bidder. I won't even mention Benghazi. We both know what happened there. So I won't mention that she let four brave Americans die and then lie about it by saying it was caused by a bad YouTube video. See, I can be charitable towards you. Acosta, quit crying because the President doesn't like you and calls you fake new. Guess what you are fake news..

If in the future you decide to leave your fake news career, maybe Stephen King will let you co-write a book with him. I really think you do have a creative imagination, You have proven that with your news stories you broadcast. Maybe he will let you bring along your anonymous source with you. That is one smart guy. He seems to know about everything that is worth knowing or reporting.

So as a final thought. Report the news factually and objectively. If I want to know what you think about something, I will ask you.

So good-bye and have a great day.

As always, you are free to disagree but I am free to express my opinions. May God bless you all. Just saying.

Golden Globe Actresses Protest

golden globe actresses

Well, the Golden Globes were broadcast about a week ago. All of America's moral voices were on hand and dressed in black to show us “lowly commoners” they were in unison in their protests of sexual harassment and in favor of #MeToo movement. So to the liberal way of thinking we should all be applauding their moral convictions and pat them on the back for their courage in coming out in public against this growing menace in Hollywood. Great, they can agree that this atrocity is wrong but where were they when the Harvey Weinsteins and Kevin Spaceys were committing these horrendous crimes?They were there but they turned their heads so it wouldn't mess up their careers. So they pretended it did not happen until they were trapped in a corner and had to admit the truth.

This hypocrisy just represents another facet of the Hollywood elite trying to show us commoners how to live and what to think. These women that dressed in black pretend to care for women's wrights but where are they when women's rights are being violated in Muslim countries where a woman is stoned if she is raped? Where is their outrage when children are being sold and traded in the sex trafficking trade? Where is their moral indignation when millions of women are killed each year by abortion?

What about their outcries for all the women that do not fit their narratives or agree with ideologies against Trump and adoration for Hillary Clinton. It seems to me that in order to fit in the umbrella of their caring and protection a woman must be a robot and be programmed with the liberal talking points.

They “claim” to be against the objectification of women by wearing their “cute” little black dresses. But what I see tends to lead to more sexualizing of women. I mean, how can you object to the demoralizing of women when you demoralize yourself with your dresses that let your cleavage hang out in dresses that are slit from the hem to your—well, I'll let you picture where the slit ends. You cannot be pretending to be demure little victims of the big bad wolf when you are clearly wanting the wolf to notice you. You cannot claim the victim status when you so clearly put your self out in the spotlight to be ogled by these “big bad wolves”.

I'm not saying all women who are victimized are like this but from what I see coming out of Hollywood, this seems to be the mode of protest. I have been a victim myself so I know how it feels but I do not protest as a victim and dress as a seductress. Ladies, where I come from when you dress like that, you are not a victim. We have another word for it.

As always you are free to disagree but I am free to express my opinions. May God bless you all. Just saying.

Kids Today

I wrote this poem years ago but with the indoctrination of our children in schools today, it is even more relevant. A preschool student was recently traumatized when she called a “trans gendered student by his real name. Kids are being indoctrinated in Islam but are punished for mentioning Jesus. Letters were sent home to parents of young children requesting the parents instruct their children not to mention the name of Jesus in school. I recently published a post about a high school in Utah that exposed the student body to a presentation by a local LGBT group of poets that informed the students “I am queer and I am Trump's worst enemy.” The students were also directed to divide themselves into groups based on their sexual identity, gender identity and religious and political views. Our kids today are being assaulted on all sides by the liberal left and it is time for all Christians to take a stand to stop this bullying and indoctrination of our future.

Our children today can read of evolution

and are taught we come from apes.

They can learn of hate and prejudice

and are encouraged to murder and rape.

Family life is becoming obsolete

in this great country today.

Why it's just not cool

to kneel with your family and pray.

Alcohol, drugs and sex

are the “in things” to do.

The only thing that really matters

is what feels good to you.

Our kids today are taught that sexual perversion

is nothing but an alternate lifestyle,

Homosexuality is not a sin--

Why I can almost see Satan smile.

Our children are exposed

to so many of Satan's snares,

Yet, in school they are not allowed to

bow their heads in prayer.

The Ten Commandments have been taken

out of our schools by law.

Because the government tries to tell us

they are not meant for all!

The results of these perversions are

becoming clearer each day--

Kids can kill each other

but it's wrong for them to pray.

Indoctrination Of Our Young People

I’m queer and I’m Trump’s worst enemy

All you have to do to see the indoctrination of our children is to take a look at college campuses to see how liberal professors are teaching that “all the ills of today's society are the result of white,

conservative Christians and that white supremacy is running rampant in this country. If this country could purge itself of these evil hate-filled people, we could live in a land filled with lollipops and rainbows.”

This hate filled rhetoric is not limited to our college campuses any longer. It has now filtered down to our high school students. In October of last year, students at a high school in Utah thought they were attending a slam poetry workshop on tolerance and acceptance. What they found, however, was political rhetoric, LGBT propaganda and something called identity mapping.

One of the presenters announced to the class, “I'm queer and I'm Trump's worst enemy. Another presenter directed the students to group themselves according to their sexual identity, sexual preference and religious preference.

Needless to say, parents were outraged and the superintendent was forced to send a letter of apology to the parents.”I would not expect an exercise in which individual students were asked to reveal their sexual orientation and gender identity to be a part of the English curriculum.” he stated. He told the Todd Starnes show that the presentations were made to the entire student body during English class by poets connected to MOAB Pride, a local LGBTQ organization.

I'm sorry but when the presentation was presented by a local LGBTQ group shouldn't the faculty and administrators have a clue what it entailed?. To me this amounts to indoctrination of our children and should not be allowed in schools. A school should be enforcing anti bullying programs and not exposing the student body to group bullying by an organization that should not be allowed to be in the school in the first place. When the students were directed to divide into groups based on sexual orientation, sexual identity, religious or political views this opened the door to bullying. Bullying that was brought into the school through the front door of the school.

Our country is on a downhill slide when God is kicked out but liberal indoctrination of our most valuable and vulnerable citizens is welcomed with open arms.

As always you are free to disagree with me but I have the right to express my opinion. May God bless you all. Just saying.

Thou Shalt Not Offend

Eva Brunne, Sweden's first openly Lesbian woman bishop of the Lutheran Church of Sweden has suggested the priest at Seaman's Church in Freemont take down all Christian symbols in the church to make Muslims feel more comfortable and welcome. She calls the Muslims “visiting angels” and states she wants to make them feel comfortable when they come to the church to pray. She has also suggested setting up a Muslim prayer room in the church.

Although this is happening in Sweden, similar events are occurring in this country. A church in Washington is taking down plaques honoring George Washington and Robert E. Lee in order to make parishioners feel “safe” in church.

Too many people, and yes, even churches, are so concerned with being politically correct, we are willing to compromise our values and beliefs. Christians are told constantly not to do or say anything that will “offend” the Muslims or LGBTQ members or we will be called Islamophobic and homophobic. Yet, we as Christians, are ridiculed, mocked and called hate-filled violent extremists if we believe the Bible and its teachings.

Today, people don't want to hear the truth. They want to hear “motivational” speeches or “lite” “feel good” sermons. This “lite” version of teaching might tickle our ears and make us feel good, it's just like lite food—it has no substance.

When Jesus walked this earth, He did not cater to the PC crowd. He told the people the “cold hard truth”. Can we do less? I would rather stand with God and be judged by the world than to stand with the world and be judged by God.

As always, you are free to disagree but I am free to express my opinion,. May God bless you all. Just saying.

Church And Political Correctness

Well folks, political correctness has taken a new low. It appears that memorials to George Washington and Robert E. Lee are being removed from Christ Church in Alexandria, Virginia because they are making some people uncomfortable and feel unsafe. Yes, you read that right—unsafe.

The problem with this is that Christians are succumbing to the pressures of the political correctness mania that is sweeping the country today. Churches are bowing down to the ideas that people should not do or say anything that will offend someone else. In my reading and research, I have found nothing that will not offend at least one other person. So where does that leave us? Should we let our minds be programmed like robots and not have an original thought or idea for fear that someone might be offended?

The leaders are removing these plaque because they want to create a welcoming environment in the church. Some people believe the plaques are “chasing away would be parishioners. What will the leaders of the church do when the “parishioners” decide that they are offended by the teachings in the bible? Will they remove the bibles and crosses from the church to make people feel more comfortable and “safe”? Will they only preach “feel good” sermons and leave the “heavy” sermons out?

The desire to show tolerance and welcome diversity into the church should not be at the expense of preaching the word.. Lite preaching will not lead to the One that is the creator and King. Just like a snack might quell our appetite for a while we need a meal of substance to nourish our body. In the same way, “lite” preaching may tickle our ears and make us feel good but we need the whole word of God to nourish our soul. What I am trying to say is if a memorial to our first president and a confederate general offends us in church we need to rethink our purpose in attending church.

As always you are free to disagree but I am free to express my opinion. May God bless you all. Just sayig.

An Unjust Justice

The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but

by those who watch them without doing anything.

The verdict in the Kate Steinle murder case stunned and shocked people all across this country. Kate Steinle was a beautiful young woman who was shot and killed by an illegal alien in the sanctuary city of San Francisco, California. It spears the governor and elected officials prefer the status of sanctuary for the illegal aliens over their concern for the citizens of the state.

Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, the illegal alien admitted to shooting Ms. Steinle with a stolen gun. He was a seven time felon who had been deported five times. He stated he came to San Francisco because it was a sanctuary city and he would be safe from deportation there. He was acquitted of murder, involuntary manslaughter, and assault with a deadly weapon. He was found guilty of the weapons charge which carries a two to three year sentence.

This miscarriage of justice is only a part of what is wrong in this country. When the governors and mayors in sanctuary states and cities continue to put illegal aliens above the American citizens more tragedies like this will occur. Americans are constantly bombarded with being called xenophobic, homophobic and Islamophobic when we attempt to stand up for ourselves and our rights. Our leaders today care more about how they can profit from the elites that buy them out than they do about governing and protecting the citizens they were put into office to protect.

It is time for American citizens to stand up and say to these corrupt officials, “We have had enough! We are tired of being made to feel like strangers in our own country.” Politicians who value illegals over citizens have blood on their hands. Not only the blood of Kate Steinle but the blood of all of the citizens that have suffered at the hands of these illegals that are protected by these corrupt politicians.

It is time to get these criminals out of our country, punish the governors and other officials that protect them, drain the swamp and build the wall.

As always you are free to disagree. But, I am free to express my opinion. May God bless you all. Just saying.

Helpless But Not Hopeless

During my morning inspirational reading, I came across this devotion that is an encouragement to me.  Amidst all the tragedies and heartache in the world today, I found this quote very comforting.

“We may be helpless to stop bad things from happening, but perhaps God leaves us signs and road maps to help us recover and reconnect, provided we know where to look.”

Jennifer Gardner Trulson—Author/Widow from 9/11

Tragedy touches us in the core of our being.  Shock sets in and numbness resides along with fear and sadness in the hearts of many.  Chaos looks as it if it may reign.  However, God waits to comfort those in mourning and walks beside or carries those in pain.  Nothing heals like love.  Look for His signs and road maps for recovery.

My thoughts on this:

With all the turmoil and chaos in the world today, we need to remember that God is close to the broken hearted. He has promised to never leave us or forsake us. Sometimes, when I am in the midst of a crisis, I do not always rememeber this promise. Yes, I let doubt and fear enter my heart and color my world with tainted colors. I admit, I sometimes let doubt and fear stay lomger than they should. But just when I am at my lowest, I remember that God is there for me and doubt and fear are kicked out of my heart. I wish I could say that I never let them in. I would like to say that but I can't. I sometimes try to solve my problems in my own strength and find that my strength is not enough.
But when I turn to God and let Him take over my problem, it is solved faster and better than I ever thought possible. No, Hfe doesn't always solve them the way I want but His way is so much better than I could ever hope for.

I learned years ago that when I am knocked to the floor, I am in ther perfect position to pray. So friends, when we find ourselves at the end of our rope, we just need to tie a knot and hang on. God is there for us and will never let us down.

Let’s Take the X Out Of Christmas

Too many people are forgetting or purposely shoving Christ out of Christmas. This is a celebration of His birth. It is not known when during the year is His actual birth but this is the time of the year it is celebrated. Let's put Christ back in Christmas. I do not care if I offend anyone but I celebrate His birth and not the secular version of the holiday.

This poem was not written by me but it does express my feelings about this wonderful time of year. So I just want to say Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday Jesus.

Let’s take the “x” out of “Christmas”.

and let’s put Christ in again.

The day’s the birthday of a King,

Not that of an unknown man.

The tinsel the glitter, the glamour,

The noise of the parties gay

Have all but obscured the reason

That we celebrate the day.

We surely would not write “X-ian”

For the Christians here on earth.

Then why do we write “X-mas”

For the day of the Savior's birth?

It’s an honor that really is due Him

O’er that to a common man,

So let’s take “X” out of “Christmas”

and let’s put Christ in again.

Jesus Is the Reason

More and more we are hearing that it is offensive to say Merry Christmas. When we say Merry Christmas, we are offending Muslims and others that do not believe Christmas is a celebration of Jesus' birth. The former president of this country changed Merry Christmas to Happy Holidays and schools could not have Christmas programs or Christmas break. Instead, the programs were changed to Winter Holiday and Winter Break. The recent terrorist who strapped a bomb to his own body and attempted to kill innocent people in New York stated he was so insulted by the Christmas posters and decorations that he decided to carry out the terrorist act. Well, friends, JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THIS SEASON and I will apologize to no one for celebrating His birth.
I just read a comment that called Christians stupid saying Merry Christmas. The writer went on to say that Christmas is a pagan holiday. He suggested we read our bible for a history lesson. I would like to answer him but there was no place to leave a comment of my own. So I will answer him here. Christmas is to celebrate the birth of our savior. It is true we do not know exactly what part of the year His birth occurred. The date is irrelevant, The date does not change the fact that He was born of a virgin. He was born to take away our sins. Yes, today the world has turned this sacred time into a time when the retailers receive more attention than Jesus but that does not change the reason for the season. Yes, I read my Bible and it is all there. The 3 wise men did not stop at Walmart to get a gift for the newborn baby. No Mary did not register at Toys R Us for her precious babe. I just wanted to vent because we live in a time that openly defies any mention of God. If I have offended anyone you can read the entire story of Christmas in the bible. I suggest you read Matthew 1 and Luke 2. I suggest you read the CHRISTmas story for yourself. Now I feel better. I just had to get that said.
As always you are free to disagree with me but I am free to voice my opinion. May God bless you all. Just saying.

The First Christmas

I was going through some old poems I had written years ago and found this one.I hope it reminds you why we celebrate this wonderful time of the year.

The Christmas season is upon us
We’re all so cheerful and gay.
But too many people have forgotten
The real meaning of Christmas Day.
Long ago in Bethlehem
A child in a manger lay
For God sent Him to earth
To show mankind the way.
He was born in a lonely manger
There was no room at the inn
He was sent by God in Heaven
To pay the price for our sins.
The wise men came that night
Sharing gifts from lands afar
To see the king that was a born to them
For they had seen the star.
The glory of the Lord came down
While angels sang His praise.
So when you think of Christmas cheer
Remember that first Christmas Day.

I was sorting through some old files and found this. It is not my original writing but it is so appropriate for the times we are living in. I had found this on the internet years ago but have kept it because I find the words so important.

We, the people of the United States, in an attempt to help everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid any more riots, keep our nation safe, promote positive behavior and secure the blessings of debt-free liberty to ourselves and our great-great-great grandchildren, hereby try one more time to ordain and establish some common sense guidelines for the terminally whiny, guilt-ridden or delusional. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that a whole lot of people were confused by the BILL OF RIGHTS and are so dim that they require the BILL OF NO RIGHTS.

ARTICLE I: You do not have the right to a new car, big screen TV or any other form of wealth. More power to you if you can legally acquire them, but no one is guaranteeing anything.

ARTICLE II: You do not have the right to never be offended. This country is based on freedom,l and that means freedom for everyone-not just you! You may leave the room, turn the channel, express a different opinion, etc., but the World is full of idiots, and probably always will be.

ARTICLE III: You do not have the right to be free from harm. If you stick a screwdriver in your eye, learn to be more careful, do not expect the tool manufacturer to make you and all your relatives independently wealthy.

\ARTICLE IV: You do not have the right to free food and housing. Americans are the most charitable people to be found, and will gladly help anyone in need, but we are quickly growing weary of subsidizing generation after generation of professional couch potatoes who achieve nothing more than the creation of another generation of professional couch potatoes.

ARTICLE V: You do not the right to free health care. That would be nice, but from the looks of public housing, we're just not interested in health care.

ARTICLE VI: You do not have the right to physically harm other people. If you kidnap, rape, intentionally maim or kill someone, don't be surprised if the rest of us want to see you fry in the electric chair.

Article VII:You do not have the right to the possessions of others. If you rob, cheat or coerce away the goods or services of other citizens, don't be surprised if the rest of get together and lock you away in a place where you still won't have the right to a big-screen color TV or a life of leisure,

ARTICLE VIII: You do not have the right to demand that our children risk their lives in foreign wars to soothe your aching conscience. We hate oppressive governments and won't lift a finger to stop you from going to fight if you'd like. However, we do not enjoy parenting the entire world and do not want to spend so much of our time battling each and every little tyrant with a military uniform, and a funny hat.

ARTICLE IX: You don't have the right to a job. All of us sure want all of you to have one, and will gladly help you along in hard times, but we expect you to take advantage of the opportunities of education and vocational training laid before you to make yourself useful.

\ARTICLE X: you do not the right to happiness. Being an American means that you have to righ5t to pursue happiness-which by the way, is a lot easier if you are unencumbered by an overabundance of idiotic law3s created by those of you who were confused by the BILL OF RIGHTS.

The author of this piece is Unknown. But it does make good points for our country today. It was printed out in 1999 but it still holds true (maybe more so) for today's ills in our country. If you do know who wrote this please let me know so I can give credit to the right person.

Blessings In Disguise

Blessings In Disguise

I posted this last year but Thanksgiving reminded me of all the blessings we have that we don’t always think of as blessings.  I hope you realize all the blessings you have that do not always seem like blessings.  You might be surprised. My challenge to you is to look for the many signs of God's love you can see in your day to day life. I bet you will be surprised.

What if you woke up today with only the things you thanked God for yesterday?

Count your blessings

Name them one by one.

Count your many blessings

See what God hath done.

Have you counted your blessings today?  I admit I do not always thank God for all He has blessed me with.  In fact, I have been known to grumble about my blessings.  Why would I do such a thing?  Well sometimes His blessing come to us in disguise.  That’s right.  Sometimes His blessings can be found in our day to day chaos of day to day living such as dirty dishes, laundry, bills, and even our dirty houses.  I can see you scratching your head and saying “this woman is crazy!  How can dirty dishes, laundry, and bills be blessings?”

Well, dirty dishes tell us we have food to eat.  So many people do not have enough food.  Dirty laundry lets us know we have clothes to put on our backs.  When we pay our bills, we know God has provided us with the means to pay them.  A dirty house is a sign we have a roof over our heads and a family that loves us and children God has entrusted to our care.

Sometimes blessings can be hidden in trials.  James 1:2 tells us:  “Count it all joy my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.  And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.”

Remember, God is on the throne, in control and blessing us each and every day.  We may not recognize them at first but when we look through our eyes of faith, they are clear to see.  So beginning today, let’s all count our blessings, name them one by one.  Count our many blessings  see what God hath done.


Father, I thank you for your blessings you have given me and the ones you are giving me.  Help me to see your love and care in my day to day life.  Everything I have and everything I am I give my thanks and praise your wonderful name.  Thank you for loving me so much.

The Only Bible

The Only Bible

I know I sometimes, OK often fail God. But He never fails me. I try to live each day in gratitude for my blessings but often get too busy with the chaos of life and do not always show my gratitude. I do hope that when others see my life, they can see the joy of Jesus in me. If there is a time that you cannot see it, please remember that it is a failing on my part and not a failure on His. I am not setting myself up as a standard for what His love and mercy can do but I do hope that when you look at me you see a person that is saved by the wondrous love and mercy of my Lord and Savior. I am not a perfect Christian but one who knows I need Him every minute of every day.

My goal is live my life so that others can see the love of My Father in my life.  I don’t always succeed but He is faithful to forgive  my failures.

I may be the only Bible

That someone else will read,

So take my life and guide it

In thought and word and deed.

Let me be a blessing

To someone else I meet.

Help me show them it’s your love

That makes my life complete.

Oh, such a sobering thought to think

Of what they’re apt to see.

Help me show them it’s you, Lord

That lives inside of me.

Stop and Enjoy Today

Friends, life does get hectic in today's chaotic times. But we need to remember that God is looking for a relationship with us. He wants us to enjoy His blessings and come to Him in times of need. I know I don't always take the time to enjoy His beautiful world and thank Him enough for what He has done and is doing for me and my family. I may forget to thank Him but He does not forget about me and does not withhold His love.

God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. Genesis 1:31.

When we wake each morning God gives us a manifestation of His love for us—a new day! But too often we do not even notice because we live our lives in overdrive

Today our lives are filled with so many obligations and demands other people place on us—our families, our careers, our friends and yes we even let our church make . —the list goes on and on. As ,mothers we are so busy caring for other people in our lives, we too often fail to slow down enough to take care of ourselves or see the beauty of each new day We cook, clean,transport kids to and from various activities, just to name a few of our responsibilities. Gold did not intend for us to live such frantic lives. He yearns for an intimate relationship with us.

Beloved slow down and spend time with your Heavenly Father today.. Embrace each new day He gives you. Enjoy His artistic hand in the glow of the beautiful sunrise of each morning. Savor the beautiful sunset He puts in the sky each night for our pleasure. After all, He is our Father and He loves all His children.

This is the day the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalms 118::24

Prayers Are Real

Liberals have taken it upon themselves to lecture us on everything from who to vote for to who should and should not own a gun. After the mass shooting in the small Texas church, they have come out in full force to tell us that prayers don't work. They, in their self-righteous moral authority, have taken to social media to ridicule and mock Christians that do believe in prayer and are praying for the victims and the families involved.

Wil Wheaton, a washed up actor took to Twitter to blast Congressman Paul Ryan when he said “our thoughts and prayers are with you.” Wheaton, in his all knowing wisdom shot back, “The victims were in church. If prayers did anything, they'd still be alive.” As despicable as his remark was, he was not the only “celebrity” to throw in their pearls of wisdom. One tweet even went as far to say, “They had the prayers shot right out of them.”

They not only ridicule Christians for their prayers. They have questioned the existence of God.”If God is real why did He let this happen?” Well, friends, God did not cause this tragedy. Man did. He used his free will that God has given us all and followed the “father of lies and great deceiver”, satan. Other people want to know “Why has God turned His back on America?” He has not turned His back to us. We have turned our backs on Him. We are now living in a world that has taken God out of our homes, schools, government and yes, even churches. We are now seeing what life is like without God. We cannot take God out of our lives and, when a tragedy, such as this happens, cast the blame on Him. He is not a magic elf that can be put on the shelf until we need something. He is a God of love but He does allow us freedom to make our own choices. So friends, no God is not to blame for this tragedy. But, I do know He has promised in Romans 8:28 “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.” I do not claim to know what good will come of this. But I do know that He will work out His purpose in His own time.

So friends, I leave you with this: My prayers and thoughts are with you all and may God watch over you and yours.

As always you are free to disagree but I am still free to express my opinions. May God bless you all. Just saying.

A Praying Mother

I remember my mother’s prayers and they have always followed me.  They have clung to me all my life.

Abraham Lincoln

The young teen was out partying with her friends.  She had had too much too drink and was alone in a car with the school’s “bad boy”.   They started kissing and he began fumbling with her jeans in an attempt to take them off.  She  weakly tried to fight him off but was so intoxicated she couldn’t.  Just as he got her jeans down and started to rape, a bright light filled the car.  He expected to see a cop standing there but when he looked up he saw a huge man dressed in white.  The man had a sword at his side and glowed with a blinding white light.  The boy became frightened and drove the girl home.  When he arrived at the girl’s house he hurriedly pulled her out of his car and drove away.  Her mother heard the car and went to the door.  She saw her daughter lying on the lawn and ran to her.  She then helped her daughter to bed and tucked her in.

The next morning the mother called the girl downstairs for a talk regarding the previous night.  The girl began to cry and tell her about what had happened.  Suddenly she stopped.  “Mom, I remember seeing a bright light and a huge man dressed in white in front of the car.”  The mom sat there with tears in her eyes.  “Darling,” she said.  “I was praying for you.”

As mothers we do a lot for our children.  We make sure they eat to nourish their bodies and we make sure they have clothes to wear.  We send them to school or homeschool them to make sure they receive a good education.  But are we neglecting to give them the most important  protection we can?  Are we praying for them as they go out into the world each day.  This is the most important thing we can do for them—bathe them in prayer daily.  Ask for God’s protection over our most precious resource.  Prayer should be the first thing we do each morning and the last thing we do each night. and all through the day.  It’s not too late to start praying for our children.  A few minutes spent in prayer can make a difference in a child’s life.  The most powerful prayers that reach God’s ears are from mothers pleading on behalf of their children.  A mother’s prayer is powerful because when a mother prays—God listens.

Christians Are Not Violent Extremists

   I  would like to express my thoughts to the people who say Christians are prone to violence and are to be considered as an “extremist hate group”. 
   Yesterday, ISIS claimed responsibility for another terrorist attack in New York. Yet, we are told that Islam is a “peaceful religion”. This is a religion that believes in killing “infidels”–people who do not ascribe to their religion. Gays are thrown from buildings simply because they are gay. Women have no rights and female genital mutilation is a common practice. Yet, they are called peaceful and Christians are portrayed as a hate group simply because we believe in the traditional marriage of a man and woman. I have heard that Christians and Muslims worship the same god–we just call him by different names. That is not true. If you read any of their holy book, the Koran, you can see the differences in the teachings of Allah and God.    In the Old Testament God did demand blood sacrifices but these were usually lambs  (representing Jesus as the lamb of God). Nowhere does He command His followers to sacrifice a human. When JESUS came to earth as a baby, He took on the role of blood sacrifice, so there was no more need for sacrifices to be made to God. Jesus became the sacrifice for us all. In His earthly ministry, Jesus taught us to love each other and did not condone or demand the killing of innocent people. He gave the great commission--go and tell others of the gospel. He did not preach committing violence against those that did not believe. He told the disciples that if a town would not welcome them, they should shake the dust off their feet and travel on to the next town. His gift of salvation is a free gift but He does not force His will on anybody. He gave us a will to decide for ourselves if we want to accept this gift or not. You will never read in the Bible anywhere where we are commanded to kill anyone that does not believe our message of salvation.
I also believe this great nation I call home was founded on Judeo-Christian values and we are still a Christian country. I believe in Freedom of Religion but I believe that when someone moves to this great country, they should conform to that country's laws and not try to make over this country by trying to overtake it or hijack it with the laws from their native country. If they cannot do that the road is open to take them back where they could feel more comfortable with the laws. I refuse to change my religion for their sake. If they do not want to participate in my religion, they are welcome to practice their own. BUT do not try to force me to practice a religion other than my own.
Good night friends and GOD BLESS AMERICA but more importantly America thank God.
As always you are free to disagree but I am still free to express my opinion. May God bless you all. Just saying.

I Am Offended

I know the "thing today" is to be offended if you are a "minority" and whites are told "not to say or do anything that might “offend". Well, let me tell you I am offended. What I am offended by is the fact that as a white conservative Christian, I am supposed to be pc and be careful of what I say and do so I don't offend the blacks, atheists, muslims or anyone else who might be "offended". Well, I am to the point that I am offended by them. The last time I checked I still have a freedom of speech and freedom of religion and I will only bow to my Heavenly Father. Though man may declare himself as god and all knowing--no man is omnipotent or omniscient or omnipresent--only God. Oh, if I have offended anyone by this post, unfriend me if you must but if you expect me to apologize don't hold your breath.
As always you are free to disagree but I am free to express my opinion. May God bless you all. Just saying.
