Cold Rainy Days

It’s a cold, rainy and windy day. I have had to run to town for a number of errands for 5 days in a row. Today, I’m staying home. Today, I’m resting. Today, I am doing nothing, even though there are responsibilities around my home I could and should be doing.

Because of that decision today to vegetate, I spent a little too much time on Facebook this morning. I monitor my news there. There is no other place I receive as much news as quickly and concisely as on Facebook. There is no other place that covers as many topics at one time as on Facebook.

Ok, some might say it is wrong to spend so much time there. Whatever… No one know what someone might do to relax, or gather information, or minister to others. I have seen it all on Facebook. Those that judge, might spend too much time reading, or watching movies; or anything else that might get in the way of what one should be doing. But today, for sure, I have overspent my time there. But there is SO MUCH going on in our nation and around the world! This is some of what I learned, or was reminded of today:

Tim McGraw

"Our family sends all our prayers to those in the path of Sandy as well as deepest concerns and admiration for our public servants who put themselves in harms way....may God shelter you."


The Voice of the Martyrs

Several Christians have been arrested in a mostly-Muslim nation. For security reasons, we can't say more. Please pray for them.


Patriot Voices

"Karen and I extend our thoughts and prayers to those in the path of Hurricane Sandy."


Christians United for Israel

"Prayer Alert - 20 rockets were fired into southern Israel early this morning. Could you imagine having to stay within 15 seconds of a secure room?” LIKE to PRAISE God that there were no injuries. LIKE to join us in PRAYING that these rockets cease. 

America prays!

National Rifle Association

Chicago is the gun control capital of the U.S. It has long been characterized by politicians like Barack Obama who not only view concealed carry laws with disdain, but even oppose the individual right to keep and bear arms. Obama even opposed the right to use guns for self-defense in the home while he was a state senator in Illinois.

America counts on our 2nd Amendment...

“LIKE if you agree with Pastor Hagee that “the day America turns its back on Israel, that day God will turn his back on the United States of America."

America stands on Biblical principals.

America cares!

Remembering Isaac

In Memoriam

November 1, 1991 ~ October 13, 2006

Monday, October 8, 2012


“You aren’t going to believe it, Mom,” my son stated as he was fixing his snack at the kitchen counter.

“What?” I asked.

“I was in the store today, and a man and his wife started talking to me. They saw the logo on my t-shirt, I guess, and asked me if I was a fireman. I told them I was a volunteer, and working that direction.” 

I stopped what I was doing at the kitchen sink and looked over at him to see the seriousness of his facial expression. “Oh, they knew because of the MSA logo?” I asked speaking of the fireman logo on his shirt.  Logos are not only good advertisements, they are also good conversation starters!

“Yeah, I guess.  But it started us into quite a conversation.  They told me they moved out of California because of the drug problem in their area and because of the gang problem there. They were so discouraged,” he explained, “because just after they got here, the house a couple doors down from them was busted for selling meth.”  The couple he was speaking with, was understandably, extremely disillusioned by the crime brought on by the drug culture.

I laughed – a little sarcastically, I guess. “Yeah, contrary to popular belief, we are not immune here either; that’s for sure.”

“Well, guess what there answer to the problem, was?” he asked me, though responding before I could answer.  “Legalize drugs!” he exclaimed as he shook his head in disbelief.

“Oh man, you gotta be kidding me? How old were they?” I asked thinking maybe it was the inexperience of their youth that caused them to support that kind of attitude.

“In their 40’s, I would say,” my son answered. He knew my next question before I asked - What did you say to them?

“I simply told them, ‘What good would that do? There would still be crime!  People who could not support their habit would still need money to buy the then legal drugs. And they would still get the money for the drugs anyway they could. Only there would be more crime, because legalization of drugs would cause more people to do drugs. And drugs are generally a big factor in people not being able to hold jobs in the first place. Legalization wouldn’t solve a thing.’”

Wow! I was proud of my 19 year old son, but not surprised. First, for understanding the problem and recognizing the "solution of the day" - commonly espoused these days - was no solution at all. Secondly, I was proud of him for not being afraid to speak up! 

Their answer to his reasoning, he told me: “Oh I guess that’s true." Incredibly it was like a lightbulb had been turned on. "We hadn’t thought of that,” they continued in a thoughtful and polite tone.

Oh my word!!!  Does not anyone think things through for themselves anymore?! This is a classic example of why I realllllly believe in speaking up about things deemed politically incorrect! Sometimes ya just gotta help some people along, I guess.

Man of Faith - Nation of Faith

We have heard recently, comparisons of the condition our nation is in now, to what things were like under the Carter Administration: the economy, the unrest, the dissatisfaction, the unemployment, Carter's treatment of Israel, and his soft stance on our national defense are a few of the topics of concern being expressed. I will never forget that time. Yes, I was political even back then. I remember the burden we felt as a nation during those years.

It was also a time when Jerry Falwell's Moral Majority was very active and very successful. A nation was awakened from ambivalence and apathy. We were ready for change. Americans came together and prayed and then voted. Ronald Reagan was the outcome of that vote. I will never forget the joy at the election of this man. One could literally feel a cloud lift, a fog dissipate. I know that will sound extreme to some. But it truly was the case; we were back on our way to what we once were, to what we should be. Stop a moment to watch this video, and you will understand why.

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.   ~2 Chronicles 7:14
 I'm not saying we have a candidate in this election with the faith and ability of Ronald Reagan, but I do believe, if we bow down, and if we turn out (to vote), God will show up - "sure as sunlight".

We "have no where else to go"....
