Right now I am dealing with life one day at a time. Trying to figure it out. Trying to figure out how I go forward, how we go forward. Talking to God takes quite a bit of effort. Listening to God is even harder. Kevin and I are separated not by choice but due to life’s circumstances. Sickness, unemployment, problems with finances, and eviction. I never thought this would happen to me. I now know hard times can fall on anyone. I so thought life would be different from this. I know God is *there* but He seems distant. I know God is watching over us and guiding us. Even though I know this I doubt. I ask “How can this be?” “I am going through this crap and He’s letting me go through very hard times.” Yet I have this feeling that God is in charge and things will be better. Eventually. But impatiently I wonder when. And hope it happens sooner than later. To help me get through this time I have been praying, reading, and talking to family and friends. God Bless.

I’ve written often of the hatred of human life from those that consider toleration to be more important than what God has created. We are a society of drones rather than children of God. I happened upon a blog that said:
“…we have lost our hatred of death. We have become indifferent to it. We have come to assume it is natural, normal, no big deal. Why don’t we despise it or reject it as hideous anymore? Have we forgotten that we were created by God to live, not to die?”
I would go further with how our society EXPECTS death rather than fighting for it. It is a sad, sad world where we band together for homeless dogs and cats but allow abortion facilities to exterminate humans.
This apathetic ‘live and let die’ attitude feeds on people who have not sold out to God. Our love for each other…

A Latina reporter was left speechless after trying to make a white man look bad by asking if he is racist, immediately following being attacked by a group of Latino protesters.
As we all know, one of the favorite narratives of the pro-illegal crowd and the left is that those opposed to illegal immigration are somehow racist, even though we only push for the proper immigration laws to be followed. When this reporter for UniVision attempted to ask a man a loaded question, absolute hilarity ensued as he and his friend – who just happened to be black – put her right in the proper place for trying to paint him as racist to her Latino audience.
Kudos to him and his friend for making her feel every bit as stupid as the question she asked him.

The media is aiding in the recruitment of terrorists by constantly seeking profits from distorted reporting of Palestine propaganda, where Hamas killed children to terrorist parents are paraded as victims to Israeli aggression, while the reality is that Israel observes enormous self-restraint in relentless terror attacks targeted against them.
The reporting and distortions, originating from Muslim propaganda and perpetual lying, has made the reason and history behind the entire conflict so confusing that even we didn’t know that the founder of the Palestinian invasion and occupation demanded a Caliphate from the British Mandate. The motivation for Egyptian and Saudi Barbarian Jihadis to invade the Mandate they under “kafir” governance was to re-awaken a Caliphate in the entire region. Had the Ottomans been there they would still have invaded the Mandate. Today Israel is used as fodder for those intentions. Letters between and the British government clearly mentions the word ‘caliphate’…

“Once, I had night duty, and I was suffering greatly in spirit because of the painting of the image, and I no longer knew which way to turn because they were constantly trying to convince me that the whole thing was an illusion. On the other hand, one priest said that perhaps God wanted to be worshiped through this image and therefore I ought to try to get it painted. Meanwhile, my soul was becoming extremely exhausted. When I entered the little chapel, I brought my head close to the tabernacle, knocked and said, ‘Jesus look at the great difficulties I am having because of the painting of this image.’ And I heard a voice from the tabernacle, My daughter, your sufferings will not last much longer.
Diary Number 152
My Thoughts: Lord Jesus I give you my great difficulties today to do with as you wish. Mend them. Don’t mend them. Show me a different path. Don’t show me a different way. Heal me. Don’t heal me. Please help me to see how everything I am going through has a purpose and a place in your plan for me. I ask you to guide me along the correct path. Amen.

The Joy of Living in Zion
Of the Korahites. A Psalm. A Song.
1 On the holy mount stands the city he founded;
2 the Lord loves the gates of Zion
more than all the dwellings of Jacob.
3 Glorious things are spoken of you,
O city of God. Selah
4 Among those who know me I mention Rahab and Babylon;
Philistia too, and Tyre, with Ethiopia—
‘This one was born there,’ they say.
5 And of Zion it shall be said,
‘This one and that one were born in it’;
for the Most High himself will establish it.
6 The Lord records, as he registers the peoples,
‘This one was born there.’ Selah
7 Singers and dancers alike say,
‘All my springs are in you.’
Yes, the Lord loves me. I question whether the He loves me. I am in pain, constantly. How can a good God allow me to be in such extreme pain? I think, there must be a purpose, but don’t know what. in my heart I know that Jesus loves me but my brain questions His love for me. I am sympathetic to those who wonder how an all good, omniscient, and omnipotent God can allow such horrible tragedies, diseases, disasters, and turmoil in this world? We need to remember that God does not intervene in persons free will decisions. In going through my pain I have become closer to Christ. Are these sufferings a wake up call? God wants us to be closer to Him but these tragedies are odd ways for that to occur. Yet we do not understand the ways of the Lord. The Lord calls us to trust Him. This is hard when going through tough times. We are called to have faith that God has a plan for each of us and that He will guide and take us to where we need to be.

Everything in Time by Teresa Rice
Time is, time does what?
Time gone by
Time is here
Waiting for time to come
Time well spent
Time tells tales
Time tick tocks over and over again
As we construct our lives in time.
