You're Fighting the Wrong Guy!

Whew-what a ride this has been!! Since I was last on here, I've had a couple of hips replaced at the VA Hospital. Great work they did, great care and great results. I'm back at watch out snowflakes!! As anyone who is alive and fairly awake on this planet, you may be noticing quite a shouting match going on between "liberal" and "conservative" ideation and the people espousing those ideas. Now let me remind you folks...stop fighting each other. That's the wrong enemy. That old devil is having a field day in this country right now. The battle over abortion, gender identity, immigration, elections, family values, alternate life styles, gun control, mass shootings. Did I wake up on Mars? Unbeknownst (Duh, look it up) to many young ones today, that is not the America in which I grew up. I walked from the projects where I lived, to school at age 5, by myself, when I missed my little walking group. Try that without a police escort today! Most fa

Liar, liar, pants on fire!

Wow-where do I begin! The news media are shouting such conflicting information; famous individuals continue to blatantly lie from "I did not have sex with that woman", to "I was beaten up by two white guys wearing MAGA hats"; Russia is threatening to bomb us if we station offensive weapons close by; the Pope is having meetings with the church's leadership about priests sexual sins and many of our young people are open to Socialism instead of Capitalism and the free market.   What planet did I wake up on (excuse the lazy grammar)? It's at times like these that I am ever grateful to have a direct line to Jesus Christ. Some may scoff at that, but our problem today is that we are bereft of the truth, in all of our settings. (Bereft-if you dropped out of school, or went to a public one...look it up. JK, JK!!)   Today, I'm shaking my head in disbelief as I hear some use the term, "my truth" Whaaat? It's either true or it's not true..

Take Two Psalms and Call Me in the Morning

Been awhile listen up.   When we feel sick, we sometimes call the doctor and explain what ails us. The doctor may say to, "Take two Motrin and call me in the morning". To get the relief we seek, we follow the instructions and call in the results.   When we are not doing well spiritually, we need to do the same. Sin (don't wince at that word, you little snowflake!), makes us sick, weak, ineffective and spoils the soul. The Word of God is sharper than a two edged sword and can cut through some of our pain, grief and darkness better than any pain meds. Jesus came to give us life and that more abundantly.   With our Great Physician, we have a "standing prescription" which can be refilled as necessary: Sad- take John 14 Need Reassurance- take Psalm 145:18-20 Stuck in sin -take Psalm 51 Insecure- take Psalm 121:1-3 Facing danger- take Psalm 91 Disappointed in people- take Psalm 27 God feels far away- take Psalm 139 Fearful- take Psalm
