EVERYDAY LOVE

It began long ago, It seems . . .
With a prayer to The Lord above.
Longing for the man of my dreams;
Asking God to pick my true love.

The excitement of our first good-night kiss;
That he swore said, “love me forever” –
Led quickly to Godly union in marital bliss,
And a double familial blending endeavor.

And I cry,
For the memories,
Of our everyday love.

Unexpected gifts of words,
Collected in a private file,
Of verses for song birds,
Composed to make me smile.

Surprise weekend destinations;
No phones; no briefcases; no teens.
O.M.G! Such romantic locations!
Where memory films the scenes.

And I cry,
For the memories,
Of our everyday love.

Careers blossomed with fun and spectacular style.
Soon we enjoyed our comfortable empty nest,
A time for loving, and life slowed down for a while;
We knew beyond all measure were we blessed.

Could this honeymoon marriage last the rest of my life?
“I am sorry, it is not to be for you.” I was told.
“You will help your love until death. You are a good wife.”
But why punish me, how can You be so cold?

And I cry,
For the memories,
Of our everyday love.

(Rev 21:4 )
“And God shall wipe away all tears
neither shall there be any more pain:”
With these words He vanquished my fears,
My love is joyful again in His Heavenly Plane.

(Jeremiah 29:11)
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord,
“plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
plans to give you hope and a future.“ I have your word.
I pray to know why I am still here, alone and so blue.

And still I cry,
For the ever-vivid memories,
Of our everyday love.

HEADS UP – THE FLAW IN THE AMERICAN AWAKENING

America has been in dire moral straights for a long time. “The enemy within” our government continued the policies of several prior Presidential administrations: DIVISIONS of color / racism; of political parties; of sex / gender; of Antifa getting by with violence against the Middle and Upper Classes, and others. Most important, Christians have divided, divided, and sub-divided The Body of Christ into thousands of denominations designed with man-made agendas. America is divided, both sides cannot be right – well, one of them IS left. The truth is that those who are on the right claim higher moral ground, but it is often a false claim. Their patriotic hearts are in the right place, but what they believe is flawed. The problem with America is her Christian Faith; it is broken.

The Christian right is praying, but they are not a cohesive group under Christ, as The Body of Christ, as they should be. Americans have become desensitized to evil and are no longer able to look evil in the eye and call it evil. The “Great Awakening” is primarily a political awakening so far, and not a spiritual one. Dozens of YouTube sites that are reporting the truth to Americans, are missing the necessary boat for success. The “Great Awakening” must take Americans back to their Christian roots. The Lord is in the wings waiting for Americans to not only come back to Him, as their “First Love,” but to be loud in sharing their rekindled Christian Faith – via witnessing to all that ‘have an ear.’ There is no testimony on this earth stronger than the TRUE witness testimony of Christian Faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Our Founding Documents, including our Constitution, were based on Judeo/Christian Faith. How are we to make America Great Again (MAGA) without our true King, Jesus? America is not to bend their knees for any other faith, or political substitution for our faith. Our Representative Constitutional Republic requires a self-governing population. Let there be no mistake, self-governing Americans are Christians who endeavor to live the Lord’s Commandments for humans. In the successful years of our Republic, most of our population endeavored to live up to these Commandments written in our hearts and minds. Of course, there were those who were not Christians or Jews, but most in this category of Americans considered the Commandments to be good for them and their families. God’s natural laws are written in every human DNA but is only truly activated when Christian Belief is in exalted play.

It isn’t as if Christians do not know that only the truth will set our course straight and good, the following is one of the most quoted passages in The Bible – AND WHAT IS EXPECTED OF US.

Ephesians 6:10-20 Holy Bible KJV
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might.
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Above all, taking the shield of Faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
And take the helmet of Salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God:
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the Gospel,
For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.”

If the Christian right, that came out to vote for Trump, were solid in their Christian Faith, and loud about their Christian Faith, as well as supporting President Trump, the lies and betrayal we are witnessing would quickly be handled by a DOJ that is in tune with the majority of Americans.

75% of Americans say they are Christian. 20% of Americans say they have no religion. Religion and Denomination are interchangeable in America.  I have no Religion / Denomination; I have FAITH IN THE GOSPEL REGARDING JESUS CHRIST, which makes me a Christian BY FAITH, AND GODS WORD. Even family members have argued with me about my Christian Faith. When asked if they have read Jesus words in The Bible, they say “no.” I ask them, (and you if applicable), to hold your opinion of the Bible until you have read it and studied it by prayer to God before and after each study session.

Another fine point regarding Christianity, we all know that many who claim to have no religion, are mad at God for some reason; and many return to their Christian Faith when they need God. When America reconnected historically in her Christian Faith, evil slithered behind a rock until the next time in the future history when America becomes weak in their solidarity behind their Christian Faith. We the People do have it in our power to turn the country solidly around today (MAGA) if we would live in The Word as we have done in the past. This will be a day when “The Great Christian Spiritual Awakening” will be described in our National Pledge:

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.

LET OUR CREATOR DEFINE US

WE MUST NEVER LET ANY MERE MORTAL DEFINE WHO WE ARE
My first love told my daddy when exactly he would be his son-in-law. Then he was unfaithful. I was ashamed I was not worthy of fidelity.
My second love was abusive, AND cheated on me. Something in me deflated.
My third love made fun of me in a mean way, and he was unfaithful.
After a few whirlwind, abusive loves, something inside me screamed STOP!!!!!!
I remembered two important things for any human to know –
1. I got on my knees and asked for The Lord to pick me a forever husband that would love me in all the ways I love. I asked for a man that loves The Lord.
2. I remembered something important I read in Atlas Shrugged. Our chosen mate represents our highest ideal we have of our self. I asked The Lord to also make sure my forever husband would match this requirement .
God sent me John, and before God took John home, I was married to the most amazing best friend, magical romanticist, conversationalist, husband, and father for our combined children – for 23 years.
The Lord is faithful.
I thrived, and even when illness took my youthful looks, I felt beautiful. I was just me. The Lord won the beauty argument.

 MY CRITICAL THINKING CLASS NOTES / RHETORICAL DEVICES

These are meant to be used when reading articles and commentary. Enjoy a deeper understanding . . .

MY CRITICAL THINKING CLASS NOTES / RHETORICAL DEVICES
I reduced the class down to less than three pages!
Juanita Holloway-Walters aka Texas Lady Juanita

PERSUASIVE:

EUPHEMISM – Good expression replacing bad one that may offend

INUENDO – Insinuation of something deprecatory

RHETORICAL DEFINITION – To influence attitude or affect behavior, use images w/ positive or negative emotions (also known as Rhetorical Explanation and Rhetorical Comparison)

DYSPEMISM – Bad expression used to tone down the good

LOADED QUESTION – Question that rests on one or more unwarranted or unjustified assumptions

RHETORICAL DEVICE – Influence attitudes or beliefs through association – adds to persuasive but not logical

DOWNPLAYER – Diminish importance of claim

PROOF SURROGATE – Expression in place of actual evidence or authority

HORSE LAUGH – Ridicule disguised as reasoning to reject claim

RHETORIC – Persuade rather than prove logically

STEREOTYPE – Oversimplified generalization about a person of a certain class

HYPERBOLE – Extravagant Overstatement

WEASELER – Expression used to protect claim from criticism by weakening it

COMMON FALLACIES:

AD HOMINEM – Argument against claim based on who made the claim instead of against the actual claim (cannot resist pointing out that The Tea Party people are attacked this way, with Ad Hominem arguments on the six o’clock news – by other political parties calling us names we would normally attribute to far left, and not debating the issues)

FALSE DILEMMA – Fallacious reasoning – x and y can both be false — false reasoning says x is true because y is false

PERSONAL ATTACK AD HOMINEM – Refusing claim because person making it we do not like, or we disapprove of them

APPEAL TO IGNORANCE – Lack of evidence against a claim doesn’t mean the claim gets any positive points

GENETIC FALLACY – YO Mama! Not really ha ha – Rejecting a claim on the basis of its origin or history

POISIONING THE WELL – Discrediting the claim in advance because we don’t like the person

BEGGING THE QUESTION – Argument in which conclusion is identical to the argument (restates argument)

INCONSISTENCEY AD HOMINEM – You can’t make that claim due to prior opposing stance (or your actions are opposite)

MISPLACED BURDEN OF PROOF – Case where burden of proof is on the wrong side

LINE-DRAWING FALLACY – Insisting that a line be drawn at x, when it could also be drawn at y or z

SLIPPERY SLOPE – Arguing that because x happens, then y and or z will also happen

CIRCUMSTANTIAL AD HOMINEM – Attempting to discredit claim by discrediting the person making the claim

PERFECTIONIST FALLACY – Concluding claim is false because its conclusion is not perfect

STRAW MAN – Ignores actual position and argues a distorted, exaggerated, or misrepresented position

PSYCHOLOGICAL & RELATED FALLACIES

WISHFUL THINKING – Accepting it because you want it to be true and vice versa

GUILT TRIP – Making someone feel guilty for not accepting claim

ARGUEMENT COMMON PRACTICE – Justify or defend on grounds that everyone knows it or does it

NATIONALISM – Because of nationalism one may be led to blind endorsement of policy or claim

ARGUMENT FROM ENVY – Induce acceptance by arousing feelings of envy

ARGUMENT FROM OUTRAGE – Invoking anger with inflammatory words followed by conclusion

ARGUMENT BY FORCE – Using threat to support some conclusion

ARGUMENT BY PEER PRESSURE – Threatened by rejection if you don’t accept a claim

GROUP THINK FALLACY – Identifying with a group takes the place of reason and deliberation on an issue

ARGUMENT FROM PITY – Supporting claim by invoking pity rather than legitimate argument

SCARE TACTICS – Frightening scenario instead of facts to get someone to see it your way

ARGUMENT FROM POPULARITY – Convince of argument just because all or most believe it

SMOKE SCREEN – Irrelevant topic introduced to lead you away from original issue (Politicians in Washington like this one)

RATIONALIZING – False pretext to satisfy our desires or interests (teens love this one)

SUBJECTIVISM – An assumption that is true for one person, yet not for another

RED HERRING – Same as SMOKESCREEN

ARGUMENT FROM TRADITION – Using tradition as the basis of a claim

RELATIVISM – Error that two different cultures can believe different on a fact (oh, I could write a book on this one)

TWO WRONGS MAKE A RIGHT – Saying I can hit you because you would hit me

SCAPEGOATING – Placing the blame on a person or a group in error because they are an easy target

SECRET TO BEING HAPPY IN MY WORK

Concerning my career, I was always a “fast-tracker,” and a “super achiever” with awesome habits. I loved working, and being able to take good care of my two children. 

About the time of my empty nest, I became disenchanted with my work, and an endless stream of “underachievers” available in the workforce, to hire and train.

Then one afternoon, alone in my office, with the door closed, I prayed on this. I had an epiphany from The Holy Spirit. I was not working for a company, or even my family, I was working for The Lord; AND I could not deny the people The Lord put in my life’s path who needed my help.

My attitude about working was not only restored with energy and exuberance, I looked forward to every working day until I was forced to retire for medical disabilities.

From that day of my Faith epiphany forward, I never left my Christian Faith at the threshold of work or play ever again.

America suffers because Christians have been fooled into thinking they must leave the essence of who we are, our Christian Faith, at the threshold of all daily activities and encounters outside of the home and church.

Colossians 3:17, 23, 24
17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.

You can quote me on this.

THE FIGHT OF OUR LIVES

Congressman Hon. A.S. Herlong Jr. of Florida read a list of 45 Communist Goals into the Congressional Record in 1963 – 55 years ago. This was a wake-up call to the up and coming Baby Boomer generation of the United States of America. There are many reasons why the Boomers did not heed this call:

~ Blue laws were overturned, and many raised up in a Christian Church, could find reasonable excuses to shop on Sundays, take the family out to eat, go to an indoor movie, and a hundred other reasons to find fellowship outside the Church. Instinctively, I believe many Boomer Christians were very Bible savvy, and understood that THE CHURCH is the ‘Body of Christ’ (the people), and not the man-made rules of thousands of Christian denominations. They famously, “threw out the baby with the bathwater.”

~ Christianity and family go hand in hand; when Americans drifted away from the church, they drifted away from knowing their neighbors – and even knowing their own family members. Divorce became common. Children no longer had the foundation of the church, and local fellowship to give them a sense of belonging.

~ Christianity and our Constitution go hand in hand; Constitutional law being replaced by the ever-elusive case law created an atmosphere of anything goes in our legal system. Boomers became less and less confident in our government, and our legal system.

~ Vietnam. Boomers lost their friends, brothers, and fathers to this “police action” that had zero support in most of America. Instead of directing our anger where it belonged, many Americans placed the blame in error on our Armed Forces. The divide between America and our Armed Forces would grow wider with time.

~ Margaret Sanger’s Planned Parenthood has continually to present day worked to achieve her goals for the reduction of poor and ignorant minorities. “Her goal, for the United States, was to increase the representation of the “native white strain”, which did not include first or second generation immigrants in her mind.” “Blacks have been aborted at about 3 times the rate of whites, according to Statistically Abstracts of the United States 2012.”

~ Hippies turned into Yuppie’s, and America’s love affair with careers, homes, cars, lavish vacations, and corner offices would do as much to wreck America’s families as divorce.

~ When we turn on computers in our schools, and when we turn on our iPhones we see an apple with a bite out of it – this representation of original sin should have given us a warning of what was to come. For every good we can name for our computerized world, we can name an endless list of evil. One huge example is internet pornography which is an epidemic in our world.

~ The war on drugs. The war on poverty. Two domestic wars that are dismal failures. Both are infested with drugs and poverty.

Below is the list of 45 Communist goals to infiltrate America and destroy her from within. You will see how far down this rabbit hole America has fallen. Americans can partner ideologically with Trump and our Military for a last chance to turn this around, with a “Great Awakening.” Americans who state their faith is Christianity has been holding the line at 85% of our population for many years. I pray for our “Great Awakening” to be defined by our Christian FAITH:

“2 Chronicles 7:14 King James Version
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

THE MOVEMENT TO DESTROY THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA FROM WITHIN is defined by the goals Congressman Herlong quoted from Cleon Skousen’s book “The Naked Communist:”
My remarks are all in [brackets]  . . .

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

[As long as man has a sin nature, it would be foolish for the U.S. to disarm, because our enemy is Satanic and would never actually disarm. Our enemy among us prides itself in telling lies that Americans want to believe.

“Ephesians 6:12 King James Version
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” ‘Spiritual wickedness in high places’ – even in our own government.]

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and
s   regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

[DONE – YOUR HARD-EARNED MONEY IS GOING TO OUR ENEMIES. HOW DID YOU (AMERICA) LET THIS HAPPEN WITHOUT A FIGHT?]

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

[As one of my childhood friends says: Snicker, Snicker]

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in
1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

[Is it possible that America affects the outcomes of elections around the world? How can we, with a straight face, accuse anyone else of this crime?]

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to
suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

[More of that snickering behind my hand.]

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand
that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces.
(Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as
by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now
doing in the Congo.)

[My nightmare is that I wake up and find either Gore, Clinton (either), or a Bush as the Secretary General of the UN. Can you imagine the out and out fight to take over America?]

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by
claiming their activities violate civil rights.

[LOUD SNICKERING]

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current
Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations.
Put the party line in textbooks.
18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which
are under Communist attack.

[Done. But, we are fighting back, and are reversing Agenda 21 across the country. It is just taking too long because parents are too busy with their lives to realize how important this is.
Newspapers recently talking about children who are demanding to by-pass parents, and affect law making directly should have scared the crap out of Baby Boomer children who have lost control of their children to the idea of Communism and Socialism. Where did they learn this? In our public schools that our tax dollars support 100%.]

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing,
policymaking positions.
21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression.
An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks
and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”
23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness,
repulsive, meaningless art.”
24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation
of free speech and free press.
25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity
in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

[How many shades of gray? My ex once told me, “That most of the world lived in the gray areas, not the Black and White that I lived in. Why, if I didn’t know about his promiscuity, because he would be careful, it really doesn’t hurt me, does it?”]

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit
the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a
“religious crutch.”
28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground
that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

[PLEASE READ MY COMMENTARY DEBUNKING “SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE” FOLLOWING THIS LIST OF COMMUNIST GOALS IN THE UNITEDS STATES OF AMERICA.]

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of
step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide
basis. concern for the “common man.”
31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American
history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more
emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

[It is getting harder to snicker . . . The last three remind me of the last three or four Presidential elections.]

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the
culture – education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the
Communist apparatus.
34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

[Say what?]

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all
behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can
understand [or treat].
39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of
gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

[Definitely not snickering.]

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents.
Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence
of parents.
42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the
American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use
[“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems.

[OH MY!]

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-
government.
44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.
45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court.

[The End.
How do you feel about our America right now?
Is it past time your voice was heard on Capitol Hill?
The voices of over 100 million American adults would change our nation into anything we decided we wanted to be.
Me too. Constitutional Representative Republic.]

My commentary from August 10, 2012 on “Separation of Church and State” . . .
originally published in webcommentary . com
where I wrote as a guest author from 2010 to 2013;
after which I have written commentaries under my own blog texasladyjuanita.com

I have taken a long vacation from writing while caring for my late husband, and best friend, the king of romance, John. He went to be with Jesus on January 16, 2018. I miss him so much it still takes my breath away. I didn’t realize how much time we each spent spoiling the other until he was gone. I don’t have someone special to spoil anymore. On the other hand, for weeks, I would sit in my car waiting for the door to be opened – he did that for 23 years. I do not wish losing the love of your life for anyone. Such loss is not for sissies to bear. Everyone keeps telling me that I am the strongest woman they know. I am starting to believe it.

I have a pile of writing that I have not published. It is time to jump in with both feet. I hope to publish some new work soon. In the meantime, I felt it is important to publish this information that I have published before, because it is very timely.

American Revival & Mr. Jefferson’s Letters

It never occurred to me before to read Thomas Jefferson’s letter that the phrase “separation of church and state” came from. The Lord moved upon my thoughts today to find and read the letter, and I am so thankful that I have read it. Prior to 1947 the phrase was widely believed to protect Americans from the government dictating which Christian religion Americans would belong to. Since 1947 the courts have seen fit to give the phrase a meaning which clearly was not the intent of Mr. Jefferson. The phrase has been used to divorce American life from America’s Christian religion.

I am sure you all know by now that the phrase “separation of church and state” does not appear in the Declaration of Independence or in our Constitution. It does not even appear as a popular phrase in preserved writing during the time of our Republic’s founding. The phrase must be viewed as it is in context of Mr. Jefferson’s whole letter. I believe that if Americans were to read the letter with an unbiased mind and heart, they would cry out in agony of the injustice and of the damage that has been done to American society as a result of court rulings based on the term “separation of church and state.”

I have inserted my commentary between lines of Thomas Jefferson’s letter to the Danbury Baptist association, written in 1802. My commentary will be italicized and enclosed in brackets:

~~~~~~~~~~
Gentlemen,

The affectionate sentiments of esteem and approbation which

[approbation = approval],

you are so good as to express towards me, on behalf of the Danbury Baptist association, give me the highest satisfaction. my duties dictate a faithful and zealous pursuit of the interests of my constituents, & in proportion as they are persuaded of my fidelity to those duties, the discharge of them becomes more and more pleasing.

[He is happy that his constituent’s opinion of his pursuit of his constituent’s interests is equal to his actual faithful and zealous pursuits on their behalf.]

Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship,

[We owe an accounting of our faith, and how we worship, to no one but God.]

that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions,

[The government has its limited and legitimate powers spelled out in the Constitution. Those in government, once elected, should not be spewing their personal opinions as if they were law.]

I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should “make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,”

[He is in awe of the American people with their absolute power and authority declared that their law makers will never make a law establishing a particular Christian religion as the religion of the land. This is clearly in contrast to The Church of England, which they removed themselves from. They came here to have the freedom of whatever Christian religion they wanted to participate in. There were, to name just a few, Episcopalians, Roman Catholics, Presbyterians, Quakers, Baptists, Lutherans and Methodists. All thirteen colonies had constitutions that protected Christianity as the state religion. Even today, almost every state in the union has our Christian God in their State Constitutions. Until recent diversion, oaths of office have always been taken on the Holy Bible, and saying the words, “so help me God.” Sessions of State and Federal Congress have begun with Christian prayer beginning with our first elected officials. Until modern times, Sunday has been honored as a day of rest; this tradition is peculiar only to Christianity. When I was a girl, almost all stores were closed on Sundays. Most families spent time with their family at church and at home on Sundays. Currently, one can barely tell the difference between Saturday and Sunday. The family unit has deteriorated with the decline of our Christianity being present in our daily lives.]

[The phrase “or prohibiting the free exercise thereof” insures that no one can stop me from practicing my religion. Mr. Obama stating that “we are no longer a Christian nation” comes as a surprise of his ignorance that 85% of Americans are Christian.]

thus building a wall of separation between Church & State.

[Until modern times, this phrase was viewed in the context of the rest of the letter as declaration that the government will never be able to dictate what religion we belong to. This phrase lends itself to our religious protection from the state.]

[During the time of our Republic’s founding the term “rights of conscience” was a common phrase used for our Christian, God given rights and associated responsibilities. These rights belong to us every minute of every day we are alive. These rights define who we are. Who we are cannot be divided from our activities at home, at play, or at work – even if our work is that of politics – or, perhaps even most important if our work is in service to our citizens. Our Christian population is in dire need of returning to the “rights of conscience” that defined us in the birth of our American Republic.]

[To quote Thomas Jefferson, in a letter to the Society of the Methodist Episcopal Church at New London, CT, February 4, 1809, “No provision in our Constitution ought to be dearer to man than that which protects the rights of conscience.” Mr. Jefferson is actually saying that there is provision in our Constitution that protects “the rights of conscience.” There is no better definition for something Mr. Jefferson wrote, than for him to define it for us in his own words, in this second letter.]

I shall see with sincere satisfaction the progress of those sentiments which tend to restore to man all his natural rights, convinced he has no natural right in opposition to his social duties.

[After the agonies of war and suffering borne in gaining our independence, it is quite natural to see Mr. Jefferson satisfied to see man restored in his natural rights. Those natural rights to man from God (life, liberty, pursuit of happiness), and knowing that these natural rights are in agreement with man’s social duties. Part of man’s social duties is exercising his voting privilege, or being voted into office to exercise the bounds of his “rights of conscience” in representing his constituents.]

It is time for the majority of American Christians to end their silence on this issue. The courts have been getting it wrong since the 1940’s. If we value the revival of our American Christian faith, families, education, Constitution, and Republic, this issue is central to revival.

PEOPLE, PEOPLE, WE THE PEOPLE — THE TAIL IS STILL WAGGING THE DOG!

In the two prior elections, 50% of Christian America sat on their collective rears, and made a huge difference in electing Obama to office by way of not voting. Having learned something of value, the pulpit activated itself and its flock.  Christian America got out, voted, and made a huge difference in electing Trump to office. Post-election, Americans have gone back to the daily song of their lives.
Trump, surrounded by the enemy in Washington, has been abandoned by most of his Christian base; therefore, he is not conquering our conservative checklist of issues each day, and not claiming victories for us. As I keep saying, only Americans can make America great again. Trump never said he could do it without our help.

WHY?
BECAUSE THE TAIL IS STILL WAGGING THE DOG.

As a conservative group of Americans, we are numbered in the tens of millions. If we had the foresight, planning on all levels of community, and fortitude of our political foes, each of our voices would be heard on a daily basis (peacefully), and then politicians would be lining up to support us and our issues. We cannot send a few good men to the evil swamp of Washington politics, without our help, and expect results good for us, our families, our employers, and America in general. When we go to political dormancy, we are consequently leaving those we sent to Washington to flounder. Because we have been silent for so long, it will take tens of millions of Christians speaking up daily to be taken seriously. We still have our First Amendment Rights – barely.

The gay caucus has the dog wagging the tail. The reason you have gay people on television 24/7/365 is because they are verbal, and make sure their message is out there every day, frankly being crammed down our throats. I have no problem with gay people having the same rights as I have; my problem is that they are disproportionately seen everywhere on the boob tube, the radio, and in the commercials for hundreds of industries we shop with every day.

THIS PHENOMENON POSES THIS QUESTION:
WHY ARE CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIANS NOT ORGANIZED, EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR.

Why are we not organized as The Body of Christ, in such large numbers, that the politicians would be following us around trying to please us in our schools, employment, entertainment, and even in our churches. Most of the churches I have visited in the last 35 years, were full of old people. As parents and grandparents, we must do a better job of activating our Christian offspring! Christians, as a huge group, can not only better our lives here in America, but rescue the persecuted Christians, Jews, and so many others all over the world.

At the end of the day, Christians will only affect the medias, our schools, our workplaces, and the family when we have a PR department equal to or greater than those active on the left. Visibility is the key to having this dog wagging its own tail. When a Christian majority speaks as a unit, we will be the largest group in America, and served by our government again.

My heart, mind, and soul sees the possibility of America’s Body of Christ living peacefully together, and being a light for the world as an example again with such wisdom to guide us as Proverbs Three below. It is written beautifully. I have read that The Hebrew, The Greek Septuagint that Jesus quoted from, and The King James Bibles were all deliberately written as beautiful prose. My heart sings when I read the King James. If you can put your hands on Dr. Chuck Missler’s (“rocket scientist”), or Lee Feldick’s (rancher) study of Proverbs 3, you will be delighted when you learn what some of the phrases mean. One must go back to the Hebrew and the Greek to obtain a proper understanding. Such Bible study in small groups of five to ten produces the best in personal Christian growth. As Christians, Proverbs 3 should lift our hearts and souls for God’s glory (why we are here in the first place); and should lift us to service – even political service for our Lord, and King.

Proverbs 3 (KJV)
1 My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments:
2 For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.
3 Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of
thine heart:
4 So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.
5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.
8 It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.
9 Honour the Lord with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:
10 So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.
11 My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord; neither be weary of his correction:
12 For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.
13 Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.
14 For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than
fine gold.
15 She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared
unto her.
16 Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour.
17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.
18 She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.
19 The Lord by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the
heavens.
20 By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew.
21 My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion:
22 So shall they be life unto thy soul, and grace to thy neck.
23 Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble.
24 When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall
be sweet.
25 Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh.
26 For the Lord shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.
27 Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do
it.
28 Say not unto thy neighbour, Go, and come again, and to morrow I will give; when thou hast it
by thee.
29 Devise not evil against thy neighbour, seeing he dwelleth securely by thee.
30 Strive not with a man without cause, if he have done thee no harm.
31 Envy thou not the oppressor, and choose none of his ways.
32 For the froward is abomination to the Lord: but his secret is with the righteous.
33 The curse of the Lord is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just.
34 Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the lowly.
35 The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of fools.

Remember as you journey to different books of the Bible:
2 Timothy 3: 16
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

Another awesome place for understanding of how our lives should be lived in love and hope is the following, Deuteronomy 6 . . .

Deuteronomy 6 (KJV) 1 – 25:
Now these are the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments, which the Lord your God commanded to teach you, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go to possess it:
That thou mightest fear the Lord thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son’s son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged.
Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it; that it may be well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as the Lord God of thy fathers hath promised thee, in the land that floweth with milk and honey.
Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord:
And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.
And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.
And it shall be, when the Lord thy God shall have brought thee into the land which he sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give thee great and goodly cities, which thou buildedst not,
And houses full of all good things, which thou filledst not, and wells digged, which thou diggedst not, vineyards and olive trees, which thou plantedst not; when thou shalt have eaten and be full;
Then beware lest thou forget the Lord, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.
Thou shalt fear the Lord thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name.
Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you;
(For the Lord thy God is a jealous God among you) lest the anger of the Lord thy God be kindled against thee, and destroy thee from off the face of the earth.
Ye shall not tempt the Lord your God, as ye tempted him in Massah.
Ye shall diligently keep the commandments of the Lord your God, and his testimonies, and his statutes, which he hath commanded thee.
And thou shalt do that which is right and good in the sight of the Lord: that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest go in and possess the good land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers.
To cast out all thine enemies from before thee, as the Lord hath spoken.
And when thy son asketh thee in time to come, saying, What mean the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, which the Lord our God hath commanded you?
Then thou shalt say unto thy son, We were Pharaoh’s bondmen in Egypt; and the Lord brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand:
And the Lord shewed signs and wonders, great and sore, upon Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his household, before our eyes:
And he brought us out from thence, that he might bring us in, to give us the land which he sware unto our fathers.
And the Lord commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the Lord our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as it is at this day.
And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the Lord our God, as he hath commanded us.

BAT CRAP CRAZY?

Because of much scientific discovery in the last century, we know several axioms to be true. When I bring these up in conversation, people look at me like I am Bat Crap Crazy. Not me; oh noooo. Sadly, information that should be common knowledge, may not be for all groups, and possibly not most groups. There are, however, some scientists on the other side of the world who just might be Bat Crap Crazy.
They are looking for the original information that made creation . . . the “glue” of creation. They are trying to re-create God’s “Big Bang.”

Our Lord spoke a word, and His Creation came into being. I, with my comparatively miniscule information storage in my brain, just picked up my telephone and spoke, “define axiom,” and the information was forthcoming. (It is so easy to check your words, so they match what you are trying to say.) We talk to our telephones, televisions, microwaves, and cars expecting them to perform verbal commands. Why would we doubt for a second that God, with His obviously HUGE knowledge, would speak words and have actions occur.

Some of the scientific axioms that I believe are important to understand God’s Biblical Word:
– We know the universe is finite (not infinite).
– Whether you are talking about length, energy, mass, or time – they are made up of indivisible units that cannot be further divided beyond a known point. At that certain point in the dividing, the thing being divided loses all locality, and becomes subatomic. This is the amazing stuff of Quantum Physics.
– We are therefore inside the boundaries of the microcosm, and the macrocosm.
– OUR REALITY – OUR SPACE-TIME CONTINUUM – IS INSIDE A LARGER REALITY.
– Everything in our space-time continuum is digital.
– We live in 4 knowable dimensions, and at least 6 that are not directly knowable. The easiest way to get a mental idea of the other six dimensions is to know that without them there could be no calculations done for a probe to go to Mars.
NOTE: Because of two personal experiences, I have previously documented, I believe that when Adam was expelled from the garden of perfection, where he was made in God’s spirit image – Adam lost the ability to see the other six dimensions, and became a changed and naked man of the flesh that had a need for covering. When Jesus came to save us, he took on the appearance of man in the flesh.
– There is no such thing as truly random anything. Computers can simulate pseudo-random; but by scientific definition of random, it simply does not exist. (So much for the Theory of Evolution.)

– TODAY, many are afraid of the experiments done at the CERN Hadron Collider in Switzerland, along the French border. The scientists experimenting with matter, and its opposite dark matter, are doing work that most informed people would just as soon did not happen. The internet is full of stories and videos claiming that the CERN scientists will destroy mankind, and our world. There are stories that they have invited into our world demons from other dimensions.

The first step to handle fear is to seek to understand the truth of what is happening at CERN.
This link is to a site that explains what we need to know in layman’s terms:

https://youtu.be/JnxFYS6PK9g

The second step, for Christians, is to read the many Bible verses that deal with our Lord, who created the earth, and holds the earth in a constant balance – until He replaces it with a new heaven and new earth. The last verse below warns us that The Lord expects us to know Him through His Creation – at the very least. It seems to me that scientists are in the precarious position to absolutely know on a professional level God’s Creation, yet many deny God’s existence. These same scientists who have turned their back on God, are influencing our children negatively.

There are so many verses I could have shared, but I try to not overwhelm. It takes time to study each verse in context. The diligent, and faithful will undertake such Bible study. The phrase that appears the most in the Bible is ‘fear not.’ Remember this instruction as our nation seems to be in freefall.

Many times, in the Bible we are admonished to not be deceived. The only way I know how to do that is to be in The Word every day, and look for Jesus and redemption on every page. It is there. Most who have studied with heart and soul on Him, learn the truth of His Word; that it is given through the Holy Spirit, from outside of our space-time continuum. I believe that we are living in a time of knowledge that makes such insight more possible than ever before.

Colossians 1: 16 – 17 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that
are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or
principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before
all things, and by him all things consist.

Nehemiah 9: 6 Thou, even thou, art Lord alone; thou hast made heaven, the heaven of
heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all
that is therein, and thou preservest them all; and the host of heaven worshippeth thee.
[He will not let Global Warming harm us.]

Psalm 96: 10 Say among the heathen that the Lord reigneth: the world also shall be
established that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the people righteously.

Revelation 11: 18 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of
the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy
servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great;
and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

Psalm 24:1 The earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that
dwell therein. [Jesus’ Ownership]

Psalm 93:1 The Lord reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the Lord is clothed with
strength, wherewith he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot
be moved.

1 Chronicles 16: 30 Fear before him, all the earth: the world also shall be stable, that it
be not moved.

Romans 1: 19-22  Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for
God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the
world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal
power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:  Because that, when they knew
God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their
imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise,
they became fools,

When the people at Babel were building a stairway to heaven to know what God knows, God confounded them with many languages, and scattered them. Have faith that God will confound any who try to be gods themselves. I am not afraid of what is happening at CERN because I know that His Word tells me He will not let that happen.

WILL AMERICA WAKE UP IN TIME?

My friends and family consider me to be of fair intelligence, conservatively minded . . . and they tell me that if I made movies they would only last five to ten minutes because my logical, and critical thinking are on 24/7/365.  (I apologize to all the people in my life who have suffered my pointing out movie flaws.) Please remember who I am as I make a few points about events and our government.

On 9/11, as I watched in horror the events unfold on the television in my office, I said to others, “Wow, the planes were only to make our fear grow times ten, but were not the main show. These buildings are going down in controlled demolition.” I had been present a few years before, within safe feet of a building coming down in controlled demolition. The puffs of smoke coming out the sides of each floor, the fine debris, and the fast implosion is an experience you never forget. There isn’t anything else like it that I know of. Countless witnesses have said they heard the explosions as they happened on 9/11, bringing the buildings down.

I ask myself still today, will America wake up in time? Will she defeat the enemy within . . . to live, to fight evil another day when needed to do so? Is the ‘War on Terror’ to continue with no end, as the failed ‘War on Poverty,’ and the failed ‘War on Drugs?’ When will the population understand that these three failed “wars” have made powerful men very rich.

What the enemy is destroying right now in America, with the recent deliberate violence, is your freedom of speech. If you allow the enemy to falsely make you believe you are being discriminated against, when it is a lie, we all lose. The only way to fight this is verbally, by many million words of mouth; and verbally by millions of megaphones, web sites, and social pages. Many like me are involved in a call to mental and vocal arms – at home, at church, at work, and at play.

The following two videos are only two in many that explain to you what happened on 9/11; and that you have been lied to since before it happened. Isn’t it worth a little of your time to hear these good men out? What kind of people will not hear all sides of an issue?

DO YOU KNOW WHAT FREE SPEECH IS?

Protesters — Protesting Free Speech!!! I don’t begin to know how this doesn’t make American’s heads explode!

The president is increasingly surrounded by socialists in our government. Americans have abandoned him to the enemy.
ONLY YOU CAN MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.
If the Americans who voted for Trump do not become vocal now, he will be taken down from within. Every government that failed in history did not believe such a thing could happen. Time to grow up America.
TOMORROW:  Sit your adult kids down, as well as your grandchildren. Show them the following video, then discuss it. I have seldom heard anyone explain our right to Freedom of Speech so well.
THE NEXT DAY WE NEED AT LEAST HALF THE POPULATION TO USE THEIR RIGHT OF FREE SPEECH TO SEND EVIL SLITHERING BACK UNDER THE ROCK IT CAME FROM.
Our power is in our people. Once you back the president again, and evil has slithered away, YOUR AGENDA CAN BECOME THE AGENDA OF THE DAY TO BE REALIZED SOON.
WATCH:

God Bless.
