A friend sent this to me. She is one of the nicest people I know and I value her opinion. Watch this and form your opinion. We are all free to form our own opinions here in the US.

It is hard to remain encouraging lately with all the things that are going on.

#BringBackOurGirls Again!

The following is a post I wrote last year in May just before Mother's day. Not much has changed, other than ISIS has become one of the most irresponsible people in the world today. They not only hate their own people, they hate everyone else. God will have his judgement!

When I saw this story on the Today Show yesterday morning about the 234 girls who were kidnapped, I got this awful feeling of nauseousness. I just cannot imagine this happening. Men can go around killing each other, but to kidnap and sell young girls into marriage because Islam demands they marry virgins and it is hard to find one unless you go to a school for young girls.

I do not like to denigrate anyone's religious beliefs or lack of them. Islam is proving to be one of the most heinous religions the world has ever seen. I know that there are religions that have done worse things, but when you consider this day and age, why would these fanatics think it was alright to kidnap children. I know that most Muslims think that we should all die if we do not believe as they do.

These little girls would be better off with God than with these despicable people. I cannot even imagine what kind of degenerates would even purchase the girls. I heard on TV this morning that they were selling them for $12. This is like cannibals eating their captives. It could not be much worse. I would rather die than be sold into slavery, to bear a child in hiding every year. You would think these people would try to come into the 21st Century with the rest of the world.

I have heard it said that there were so many innovations and so much knowledge that was derived from the Middle East. What happened to them? Did they throw away their heritage by hiding behind a religion that denigrates women and castrates young women and men, so the can remain the slaves of a few. If they leaders in the Middle East were in charge of this world, what a real hell it would be.

What is so sad most of the time, they are hurting their own people more than others. Their hearts are made of stone and they only live for the money that they can get from our part of the world. There are a few people who control everything. Some people live in cardboard boxes on the side of the road, if they can find a box. So many are starving people while a select few of the people live in the lap of luxury. These wealthy people are the problem. Do not get me wrong, I do not think like a socialist. There will always be the poor, Jesus even said that. But, there does not have to be so many. The wealthy should be taking care of them when needed.

The Middle Eastern countries have so much and they share so little. We send them money even when our people are hungry. They seem to want everything. Now they want these little girls, simply because they do not want them to grow up with an education so that they can have a life of their own. These terrorist act like the KKK in the Southern United States decades ago. They want everyone to think and act like they do, but it is not going to work.

Personally, I think we need another Bush in the White House so that the terrorists do not get the idea that they can do whatever they want without consequences. These people make me sick. They need to bring these children home to their mothers.

As we approach Mother's Day, I ask that you pray for these little girls to be returned to their mothers. And Dear Lord, protect the women in the Middle East, no matter what they believe. They are the only hope of these horrible terrorists. Sometimes I think that if women ruled the world, things would be so much better. Women would not want to send their sons off to war every few years.

Where is God?

When you read this and if you agree that "under God" should be left in the pledge,
then just comment and I will forward the votes to NBC.

Just let me know how you vote. YES or NO

If you think that your friends would like to vote, pass the link on to them. The more votes we get, the better.

Easy huh! Have a great day.

Shock to NBC  

Official versions  (changes in bold italics)


"I pledge allegiance to my flag and the republic for which it stands: one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all."

1892 to 1923

"I pledge allegiance to my flag and to the republic for which it stands: one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all."

1923 to 1924

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States and to the republic for which it stands: one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all."

1924 to 1954

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands; one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all."

1954 to Present
"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

Do you believe that the word God should stay in American culture?

NBC  had a poll on this question. They had the highest Number of responses that they have ever had for one of their polls, and the Percentage was the same as this:

86% to keep the words, IN God We Trust on our currency and God in the Pledge of Allegiance
14% against

That is a pretty 'commanding' public response.

Now it is your turn. It is said that 86% of Americans believe the word God should stay.......

Therefore, I have a very hard time understanding why there is such a mess about having 'In God We Trust' on our money and having God in the Pledge of Allegiance.

Why is the world catering to this 14%?


Live, Laugh, Love in Christ

These three words are the purpose of our lives. God wants us to Live, Laugh, and Love.

 Living life to the max is to know your creator.
  • Pray He agrees when you tell Him your plans. 
  • He wants you to depend on His grace and not your own understanding. 
  • He wants to see joy in your eyes when you are obeying his commands. 
  • He lives in your heart and whispers in your ear. 
  • He wants you to hear what he has to say.
As we approach the day of Jesus' death on Good Friday, and his Resurrection on Easter Sunday, we need to give thanks that God gave us his Son, Jesus, to bear our sins on the Cross. All the sins that man ever committed or will commit were carried by Jesus. 

I read Matthew 27 last Sunday. It was eye-opening to me.

The Death of Jesus

45 From the sixth hour until the ninth hour darkness came over all the land. 
46 About the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, ""Eloi, Eloi," "lama" "sabachthani?""--which means, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" 47 When some of those standing there heard this, they said, "He's calling Elijah." 48 Immediately one of them ran and got a sponge. He filled it with wine vinegar, put it on a stick, and offered it to Jesus to drink. 
49 The rest said, "Now leave him alone. Let's see if Elijah comes to save him." 
50 And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. 
51 At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split. 
52 The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. 
53 They came out of the tombs, and after Jesus' resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many people. 
54 When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, "Surely he was the Son of God!" 
55 Many women were there, watching from a distance. They had followed Jesus from Galilee to care for his needs. 
56 Among them were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of Zebedee's sons.

Verses 52-53
Did you ever notice these two verses before?
I had read them before, but they never had jumped off the page at me until Sunday, when Ray told me what his class discussed in Bible Study. Here is a copy of what Matthew Henry had to say:

"The graves were opened, and many bodies of saints which slept, arose. To whom they appeared, in what manner, and how they disappeared, we are not told; and we must not desire to be wise above what is written. The dreadful appearances of God in his providence, sometimes work strangely for the conviction and awakening of sinners. This was expressed in the terror that fell upon the centurion and the Roman soldiers. We may reflect with comfort on the abundant testimonies given to the character of Jesus; and, seeking to give no just cause of offence, we may leave it to the Lord to clear our characters, if we live to Him. Let us, with an eye of faith, behold Christ and him crucified, and be affected with that great love wherewith he loved us. But his friends could give no more than a look; they beheld him, but could not help him. Never were the horrid nature and effects of sin so tremendously displayed, as on that day when the beloved Son of the Father hung upon the cross, suffering for sin, the Just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God. Let us yield ourselves willingly to his service."    

I pray that this has helped someone in some way. I have the conviction that God spoke to me to put this out today. To me it shows that when Christ comes again, we will be taken from the grave and rise to Heaven with to be with God.


 I am going to expand this thought here. I will be in prayer and listening to what the Lord wants me to do..

Are you Afraid of Anything?

I think we are all afraid to a certain extent. We are afraid that we will hurt others or we are afraid they will hurt us. We are afraid of flying, riding a bus, riding a train, running in a marathon, or being in a large crowd of people.

The Muslim Terrorists want us dead. There are Muslims that do not believe in jihad, but I am beginning to think that most of the ones in the Middle East do believe in jihad. I don't care who or what you believe in, hurting each other is wrong. In this war, the Muslims are the Bullies. We are the Good Guys. Of course, from the other side you could say the Muslims are the Good Guys and we are the bullies. What good does that do?

"It is assumed that the Koran is God's infallible word, and teaching contrary to the Koran is false. But, when the Christian tells the Muslim that Jesus is indeed the Son of God and one with God, that he did truly die on the Cross, was buried and rose again, that he did not foretell the coming of Mohammad, but warned his followers against false prophets, and that it is He who will raise the dead to life and sit as Judge of all men. The Muslim is then forced to believe all the Christian doctrine. which is contrary to the Koran, or to reject the Koran and Muhammad and the whole system of Islam and put his trust in Christ alone. Knowing how difficult it is to reject convictions held since childhood, it is not surprising  that Muslims almost always choose the former alternative." *

As Christians, we have a burning desire to for all those who do not believe in the love of Christ, a love that is poured into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, a love that will create a passionate longing for Muslims to know and love Christ crucified and risen from the dead.

"Now to him by the power at work within us is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, to Him be the Glory in the church and in Jesus Christ to all generations, for ever and ever. Amen" [Eph. 3:20-21]

This may not sound too Christian, but I am not so sure that we should be worrying about where they will be in the next life. We know they will not be in Heaven with us, but should we care so much. I think that if women were in charge, we would be able to settle all this mess. We would not want to send our sons off to war, whether it is an American or a Muslim. We would not want our sons to commit suicide to kill others. We would not want our sons to leave their families undefended to go to other countries to fight for people who do not even want us there. Why does this country keep throwing money and men at this problem? No one seems to appreciate that we have just about bankrupted our country giving away our hard earned taxes to them.

Our older people are in dire straits. Most cannot afford the medications they need and some cannot even afford food. That is how wonderful our Social Security System has become. The government seems to take from the system, but does not want to put the money back, or even give cost of living increases while they are giving away our tax money to strangers overseas.

If it were not for the Christian Churches in the United States, there are a lot of people who would starve to death. The Christian Churches are always sending missionaries overseas to help out those in need. Of course, our government sends plenty of money but the leaders seem to take it all and do not improve their people's plight. Somehow this all seems a little one-sided to me.
