Yes, I am working now. Even though I still have a great deal of pain I decided that I would give going back to work part-time a try. Part of the reason I’m working is so I am able to get to Florida to be with my husband. I have been working as a home health aide for nearly two months now. I like my job. I enjoy helping others in need. I really do think God has given me the grace to work with all the pain I have been experiencing. As much as I was praying for the Supreme Court’s decisions on the gay marriage and Obamacare cases to be different I wasn’t surprised by the rulings. Eric Erickson in his latest article Mass Hysteria in America points out how in today’s times “Up is down. Down is up. Good is evil. Evil is good. Wrong is right, and right is wrong.” He asks, Are you going to be ready to rebuild after the fires burn out? The fight isn’t over. We need to keep fighting for religious liberty rights. Charlie Daniels penned an open letter to President Obama. His message is loud and clear. It is a must read.
Happy Independence Day!!!
In honor of it being July 4 here is a poem on ‘The Republic’ from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Thou, too, sail on, O Ship of State!
Sail on, O UNION, strong and great
Humanity with all its fears,
With all the hopes of future years,
Is hanging breathless on thy fate!
We know what Master laid thy keel,
What Workmen wrought thy ribs of steel,
Who made each mast, and sail, and rope,
What anvils rang, what hammers beat,
In what a forge and what a heat
Were shaped the anchors of thy hope!
Fear not each sudden sound and shock,
’T is of the wave and not the ro
’T is but the flapping of the sail,
And not a rent made by the gale!
In spite of rock and tempest’s roar,
In spite of false lights on the shore,
Sail on, nor fear to breast the sea!
Our hearts, our hopes, are all with thee,
Our hearts, our hopes, our prayers, our tears,
Our faith triumphant o’er our fears,
Are all with thee,—are all with thee
Hope you have a happy and safe time celebrating Independence Day.

Rick Santorum, a Catholic who is also a Republican presidential candidate, says that Pope Francis should stop buying into global warming or climate change and “leave the science to the scientists.”
I agree that global warming is junk science, a tool of political propaganda, and there is very little if any evidence to suggest that it exists but I don’t think Rick Santorum should necessarily talk to Pope Francis as he did.
In the Vatican the Pope can turn to the Pontifical Academy of Sciences for questions regarding science. In addition, the Pope probably has other advisers to guide him on the various science subjects so in my opinion treating the Pope as if he is clueless on matters to do with science is not the way to handle the situation or treat the Pope.
Obviously the Pope’s science advisers have bought into man-made climate change (global warming) and that is a shame but I just don’t think Santorum should treat Pope Francis’ positions on science in a similar manner as the Left treat the Pope’s views with regards to issues of morality.
What do you think?

Refugee Resettlement Watch
This is all I have and no time today to do a search. Since the letter is not linked, it may be older news that the reporter at the Washington Free Beaconhas just found and wishes to disseminate further. No matter because it gives me an opportunity to link a story about how Somalis skip around the world and end up on our southern border.
Who is on the bus? Somalis caught at the border and moved to a detention facility. http://www.tpnn.com/2015/05/13/video-dhs-caught-moving-somali-muslim-illegals-into-california/
It was only ten days ago that we had a report of a busload of asylum-seeking Somalis being moved to a California detention center, here.
BTW, the difference between “refugees” and “asylum” seekers is that we pick up the refugees abroad and bring them here, and then sign them up for their social services. Asylum seekers get here on their own steam and either enter illegally…

The Rio Norte Line
Currently, I hear music in my head with four of the 2016 presidential candidates.
I’ll start with Scott Walker. Here is a boy being dissed for no college degree, yet turned the state of WI around, despite being wrongly attacked without merit (twice) by unrelenting, unethical, and very persistent Dems that should like to see his brat cooked……after soaking it in beer, of course. I hear this in him: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3umaLe37-LE
On the other side of the aisle, Hillary Clinton’s voice is that of the people…..or so she claims, but she deleted her e-mails so…. who knows? She regurgitates the ideology spoken loud and clear by the media, in honour of his majesty’s teat, to which neither she nor they can relinquish or recuse. She will always follow the parasitic path, and go along with the help of another of her ilk, who is just as full of BS as she:

Thank you to all in the Armed Forces who have sacrificed and have paid the ultimate sacrifice so that we may be free. God has watched over our nation and been with our military in their fight to keep us free. God Bless the U.S.A.
Here is James Otto singing Soldiers & Jesus:

My husband is in Florida and I still am not there with him. I am frustrated with him cause Kevin doesn’t seem to take advice very well. I wish he would do things differently which would make it easier for me to come to Florida and be with him. For many suggestions he takes the hard road, tries other things and then finally realizes he should have followed the suggestion. I know that he is a bit depressed because I’m not with him but not sure whether this plays into his decision-making. The past few weeks my pain has been worse. I am sure it has to do with stress. I try to remember the serenity prayer as well as pray for my husband. I try to give the situation over to the Lord but that is so hard.

This is a bit late but I am wishing everyone a Happy Easter. I hope all had a blessed and splendid Easter Sunday celebration with family and friends. Easter was bittersweet for me. Over the weekend I had a great time with relatives but I am still separated from Kevin. I am more hopeful than before that Kevin and I will be together soon.
Catholics celebrate the Easter Season all the way through Pentecost. Be joyful! Have faith and hope! The Lord is risen!! He is alive!!!!
How do each of us keep Jesus Christ alive in our hearts?
There are many ways you can show others that Jesus is alive in our hearts. One way I do this is when my mother needs help due to her aging and health issues I assist her in whatever she needs.
