While Dear Leader fills the Democratic coffers and dines on Burgers while Mooch is not around, the world continues to go down the crapper. I caught Obama’s first embarrassing remarks regarding the crash while he hung out on the 495 bridge outside Wilmington, Delaware. Oh, he was a real joker.

Here is how it should have gone. The full talk was 17 minutes. He cancelled his vacation and came back to the White House.
What the heck, this is the real joke. This demonstrates our Savant in full dress mode with Romney during just a smidgen of time ago during a debate

Is this climb up the mountain ever going to end? I feel like as time goes by life just gets tougher. Those who have been following this blog for a while know that my health issues have worsened over the past five years. Then you add onto that financial, car, and apartment issues. Even though at the present time I feel like I’m climbing up Mt. Everest I can feel God’s presence, Him saying “Be patient. Trust me. Things will be better soon.” I have definitely been relying on my faith to help me get through this. God is good. God is love. God is there for us to lean on.
Due to my dealing with some major issues I have for the most part been absent from the blogosphere. Hopefully things will be resolved soon and I will be back to blogging regularly. God Bless.

Teenager Vincent Parker, 16-years old, had his iPod taken away by his parents. Vincent was furious. He became unhinged and bludgeoned his parents with a long list of objects in the house. Except a gun. Killing over an iPod? Our society has become excuse ridden, irresponsible, and morals are lacking. Parents have failed to teach their kids certain values that were taught to previous generations, such as respecting your elders. Is this the result of progressive beliefs and/or policies? Kevin Jackson of The Black Sphere would answer yes to that question. Is this the result of a ‘me me me culture’? Is this the result of society breeding individuals so that immediate gratification is built into their psyches? Today this is the norm and not the exception. Violence is on the rise among youth to individuals in their twenties and I believe that this is society’s own making.

Very broadly speaking there are two types of people – those who are bent toward pulling the loose threads further unraveling a weakness or elements of insecurity in others and those who recognize the beautiful vulnerability of such flaws and serve to weave them back into the other person’s story helping them find their way to strength and courage.
Our voice, influence and impact in each others lives is the greatest resource we have been given.
I’m not saying everyone must accept every bizarre oddity and quirky trait about everyone else. There will always be people we don’t mesh well with and those with whom, try as we may, we simply clash. That’s human nature even among believers. It’s about motive and the ultimate goal for our words and actions as instruments of redemption or tools of destruction. It cannot be both.
I was offended by someone recently. I own…

In prayer yesterday I talked to God about the craziness that is going on in both our lives. I expressed that I trust the Lord but am unsure about what is going to happen in the future. I know God is watching over us in the good and bad times but the unknowing about the future is a bit nerve-racking. God is our rock. The Lord is our fortress. God is our guide. God is love. God is always there for us. During prayer the Lord led me to Psalm 46.
God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change
And though the mountains slip into the heart of the sea;
3 Though its waters roar and foam,
Though the mountains quake at its swelling pride. Selah.
4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
The holy dwelling places of the Most High.
5 God is in the midst of her, she will not be moved;
God will help her when morning dawns.
6 The nations made an uproar, the kingdoms tottered;
He raised His voice, the earth melted.
7 The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our stronghold. Selah.
8 Come, behold the works of the Lord,
Who has wrought desolations in the earth.
9 He makes wars to cease to the end of the earth;
He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two;
He burns the chariots with fire.
10 “Cease striving and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
11 The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our stronghold. Selah.
