I’m bombarded daily by news. It starts in the morning with husband’s look at the weather, today’s and the week. Then world/national news and local shootings and traffic accidents with a house fire or two through the night.
There isn’t any good economic news. The nation is set to collapse. The world is set to collapse too. Governments seek to ‘fix’ everything. Though, it’s the people who can make a difference, not rulers, presidents, representatives.
But we’re drowning in laws, regulations. We’re working hard to keep our heads above water and care for our families. But prices on everything are going up and our retirement savings have been taken away by stock market drops. There’s no place to put anything saved. We lose our principle in every place we used to sock a little money.
I’m looking for a person to run for president who will tell me there is hope. Real hope. Hope for my country. Hope for my family. Hope for the world. After Mr. Cain suspended his campaign, I see no one that fits that bill.
So I’ll just lean on Jesus. And do what I can to take his Gospel to those in need. I don’t know what others do without Him. He’s the only sanity in my world. He’s the only one with Good News. ♡♡♡
Is. 40:9 You who tell good news to Zion, go up on a high mountain; you who tell good news to Jerusalem, lift up your voice with strength; lift it up, don’t be afraid; say to the cities of Judah, Behold, your God!
Spurred on byMark Levin and others, there is a grass-roots conservative movement to convene an Article V convention of the States to amend the Constitution by enacting so-called “Liberty Amendments” that would eliminate the popular election of Senators, require a balanced federal budget, prohibit the federal government from any activity conducted by the states (including healthcare), effectively eliminate the commerce clause and the general welfare clause, enact term limits on judges and enable the States to overturn judicial decisions, impose nation-wide voter id laws, and enshrine several other far-right hobbyhorses as Constitutional imperatives. And this movement has support from people who should know better, like state representatives from Indiana and Georgia. While obviously on the fringe now, these sorts of things have a tendency to become mainstream conservative thought if unchecked.
Read that paragraph again.
They really are concerned about the things that could make our country free and successful again…
Justin shot an 8 pt buck on Monday. Our daughter was out with him.
Year before last, on his first day of hunting…EVER…Justin shot another 8 pt buck within 30 minutes of being in the field. He was 14 that year.
Justin’s daddy died when Justin was just 2. A great Christian man started to take him out to hunt with him and has been very good to Justin.
This year he posted these pics and the description of the events on Monday here:
I’m so surprised.
From the Huffington Post:
November Is the Cruelest Month
The Jewish people in Muslim nations just before the establishment of Israel were targeted years earlier for violence and death.
And when the Israeli state was reborn, the death and destruction began.
I’ve started a new blog.
I’ll keep this one and blog here too, but perhaps not as much.
We’re on a new adventure in this house!
I hope you’ll visit!
In speaking of Gore Vidal:
Buckley…reiterated his distaste for Vidal as an “evangelist for bisexuality”:
“The man who in his essays proclaims the normalcy of his affliction, and in his art the desirability of it, is not to be confused with the man who bears his sorrow quietly. The addict is to be pitied and even respected, not the pusher.”
I have so much to be thankful for.
Thank you, Father, for my family. For my church, the local gathering of your body. For friends near and so far.
I’m so blessed that you have saved me and continually forgive all my rebellion.
I thank you for the shelter over my head, the food at my table.For health. For a country that still allows my faith and most freedoms.
You were so gracious in providing a world, universe that is beautiful, breathtaking! It was so obviously made for us. Perfect to a T!
I thank you for the strength you gave me to care for my mom as she traveled home to You. I praise and thank you for the return to faith for my sister and the closeness we now have.
For husband and his successful surgery this week,
For daughter who loves us.
For grandchildren that make me see the wonder in everyone and everything.
Thank you so much, Father and help me remember to give thanks each day for the rest of my life!
A note to our federal executive:
“If you cannot do anything as simple as set up an online shopping cart,what on earth
makes you think you can run 1/6 of the biggest economy in the world and on which every
single American life will ultimately depend?”
