The Love of a Woman

This is Christmas Day--a day that finds me as a patient in St. Anthony’s Hospital. I was here also on Christmas Eve. My wife had carefully planned so that she could join me here in a Christmas Eve celebration. She had made arrangements with a ride service so that she that she could arrive at the hospital bringing her electric scooter with her. Due to a series of communication failures on the part of the transportation company, she irretrievably missed her ride.  She called me in tears that she could not join me. With the help of a dear friend and a loving grandson, she was able to travel to the hospital for a Christmas Eve celebration I will long remember.

I think men will agree that it is tremendously affirming to you as a person to know that your wife lovingly longs for your company on special occasions.  It is a tonic to the soul that yields great fortitude of character and bracing of the spine.

[Podcast of blog]

All are familiar with the eye atop the obverse side of the seal of the United States. It can be seen on the US dollar. Very clearly, the eye over the pyramid is the all-knowing eye of God. God does see the United States as his friend--the New Jerusalem. And he does help us many times.

God can see, know, and do anything.  As our Senior Partner he can share with us new and creative ideas.  But he can also help protect us from treachery.  He can record it the instant of conception and have it on an appropriate desk first thing next morning.

So what do we do, govern with a cadre of inner sanctum ruling priest?  God forbid!!

Let's say that treachery known from day-one matures.  Miraculous video-clips however valuable as super reliable hunches cannot constituent state's evidence for we insist on due process and equality.

Thus, God with a little help from Junior Partners is able to square the circle.

The Fateful Formation of Self-Governance

[Podcast of blog]

Image result for quote character is destiny

Many of us find the Trumpism mindset a perplexing monolith of unhinged reflexive thinking made inured over time to facts regarding many things--but particularly the rabid behavior of Russia and her allies in attempting to undermine our democracy. 

Our prayer must be to guide our steps oh Jehovah; for the weightiest part of any decision is the knitting together of deep decision rules that will come back to bless or bite.

Let All Lands Be Beautiful !!!

[Podcast of this blog]

The other day I heard it said that an ever-present theme of the evangelist Billy Graham was to introduce people to second chances--to help them see the plain possibility of salvation as an imminent and live option.

It strikes me that this inevitably becomes a vital strand for persistently viable social cohesion—for surely as you may need a second chance today; just so I will surely need one tomorrow.

May the Messiah pull up a chair.... and feel right at home in our company!

Merry Christmas Forever !!!

[Podcast of blog]

Merry Christmas. I hope all of you hands and feet out there have had a year of activity sometime
s even frenzied for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. For those of you who begrudgingly accede some emanating efficaciousness attributable to the power of myth, let me assert with a clarion voice that believers are animated by experience, not by hocus-pocus.

The Stigma of Sanity

[Podcast of blog]

God over the past months has driven me to be increasingly convicted over the stigma of being considered sane in today's world.  I took a brief sabbatical from my wife's company and flew to Indianapolis, Indiana to request submission for mental health observation and treatment.  At the facility much time of necessity involved watching television. Patients could not control the TV.  For hours on end we were obligated to hear the canned laughter emanating from LAFF programming (which presented laughter without joy); or GRIT western programming (which presented mayhem without pain). 

I return with confidence that I am fully capable of being a dutiful American citizen.

Regarding Fake Passes?

 10 The Lord was pleased that Solomon had asked for this. 11 So God said to him, “Since you have asked for this and not for long life or wealth for yourself, nor have asked for the death of your enemies but for discernment in administering justice, 12 I will do what you have asked. I will give you a wise and discerning heart, so that there will never have been anyone like you, nor will there ever be. 13 Moreover, I will give you what you have not asked for—both wealth and honor—so that in your lifetime you will have no equal among kings. 14 And if you walk in obedience to me and keep my decrees and commands as David your father did, I will give you a long life.” 15 Then Solomon awoke—and he realized it had been a dream.   (1 Kings 3 (NIV))


Recently, in a blog I used the term “faggot” in referencing acts of sodomy in which an avenger seeks to drill someone a new asshole.  (Referenced blog)  This would be clearly basically a criminal act of rape.  Faggot can also refer to mutual homosexual acts after a certain period of maturation—"I’ll play with your ding a ling , if you’ll play with mine.”

Because of clear sexual genital distinction between male and female, let us posit for a moment that men and women are to enjoy each other’s genital’s, but not men on men.  With a nod to President Bill Clinton, we can say “It all depends on what is, is.”

Since a picture can be worth a thousand words, I think you will agree that the following porn link (be duly warned) shares few rape connotations.  In fact, one of the participants symbolically becomes an angel—a being in a sense without sexual organs.

Let us use the Free-Mason ancient triad of hate—Fanaticism, Ignorance, and Tyranny.  This triad certainly would apply to sodomy rape; but applies far less clearly here.

Hearth vs Hell

One must finally come to the difficult conclusion that justice is hollow and mean if not spiced with grace. And this very fact of discernment in tandem with the divine spark within and a loving Creator above beckons us not only to celebrate life each day as we find it; but to move on with hope, faith, and love.  Yes Virginia, it is REALLY true that God is real and looks upon us as a father gazing down upon his precious daughter resting with absolute trust upon his lap.

Fireside Chat blog

To most history conscious Americans “Fireside Chats” evokes a family circle scene embracing all in a quiet celebration of love and concern and on occasion including a sepia photo of the White House Roosevelt family.

Yes Virginia, it is REALLY true that God is real and looks upon us as a father gazing down upon his precious daughter resting with absolute trust upon his lap.

The essential difference between a democratic president and a Nazi style dictator is lack of confidence in himself—reason as a primary tool of persuasion cannot match the tools of arbitrary power, the dictator believes—and lack of confidence in the child (for it is assumed loyalty will evaporate when child-like innocence is lost) ........The democratic president looks forward to maturation, growth, and understanding which he is adamantly persuaded will deepen love and persistent allegiance, not kill it.
