UPDATE JOHN AND JUANITA / COMING OUT OF HIDING / BEN-JAMIN!!! FREAKING FRANKLIN (Loving the Founders still.) HMMM, WE WILL CALL THIS ONE TRANSITION.

.
picture-for-3-foot-wide-canvasThis Texan has been transplanted in Ohio / the farm belt / and I am a very happy camper!
This photograph is part of our Ohio family – taken not too long ago by a professional photographer in our home. Katie – our new via son-in-law, 14-year-old, Grandgirl. Beautiful, smart, funny – thank you Lord for one with so much promise, and a new generation of Birthday slumber parties in my basement.
David and Natalie Pumpkin (lol – chances of new son-in-law, David, thinking I think their last name is Pumpkin is remote), and me and my love John. You can see for yourselves that John and I really are the Happy, Fluffy (well-fed), (short), People. I am wearing 4” heels. Please don’t tell my doctor.

Natalie and I . . . it is on our faces . . . reunited, daughter and mother. I am so proud; I am popping my buttons. Perfect? No. She doesn’t have to be with me. But she is a very amazing woman. College degreed about the time her oldest became an adult, flying further in her career ambitions than she had imagined, blame me for this food item – putting a hot meal on the table for her family almost every night, and pursuing new interests – wow. John and I are on her new interests list. She has been a huge and loving help for us. Thank you Lord for Natalie. The Lord, and Natalie get all the credit. She is the apple that didn’t fall far from the tree – and that is all I had to do with it.

John and I are each other’s care taker, and I think we both need a little help to unravel what that means going forward. This is interesting to me in that I think it may be something I will write about in the near future. I no longer have the identities I used to have: corporate whiz kid fast-tracker (innate leader and problem solver type A person LOL!!! – a type Z personality now in these senior years?), 27 years being a mother – close up and personal raising of children — identities I liked about myself. At 64, half of my identity is John (and opposite for him). Fear of losing half of one’s identity is very scary – ESPECIALLY when the love of one’s life is at stake – not to mention my best friend.

I have tackled this by creating memories every single day – and actively think about it when I pray each day about the next day.  We have learned to play each day by ear. We love our new (to us) Ohio home so much, that we have more fun at home than going out on date night.

It may have taken us a long time to fix up the deck that was ugly, but we do get the most romantic of results . . . if “Home” is romantic to you – and it is to me. This is the end of the home projects we started last November 17, 2015.

We are truly blessed beyond measure. We no longer look at days as “good days” or ” bad days”; but!!!! for us, pain, disease, etc. is what it is – and it DOES NOT get to define us – WE REMAIN THE HAPPY FLUFFY PEOPLE.

Please do pray for us, we do have some medical difficulties that are wearing us down a little. It is good that we love well; I don’t know how couples without our love get through it all. We are, and have been each other’s “care taker” in the home, and we get tired, but not beaten. To my friends, thank you for your prayers.

COMING OUT OF HIDING . . .  You would think that disease (his and mine), me going Septic and almost dying in later October, going through with the November 1st move from Texas to Ohio, BEING A SNOW VIRGIN – WOW I LOVE IT!!!, remodeling of our Ohio home with huge success, doing the front yard (wasted some $$ there), and the deck project in the back yard is why I have been mostly absent from talking to all of you out there (if there is anyone left out there looking for my words LOL!!!), but that would be a wrong assumption.

Many months ago I came back around to a topic that I have avoided for years. It is a good thing, because I have been forced to not only re-think my position, but to better understand what God has to say on the subject. It is a hard subject, and I will leave it a mystery for now – just know that it is the one that almost made me stop publishing my thoughts. I write almost every day. To bring you the new subject, I will have a formal burning of my piles and piles and piles and piles of notes – and begin new with my heart open to you and the Lord.

As soon as I tell you about Benjamin Franklin, I will close for today, and start building the bon-fire of notes in the BBQ Pit – Wish it was a cooler than 50’s night, I would just burn them in the fire place that I love. Speaking of fire places – I remembered from my childhood at my grands in NJ that fireplaces were for roasting marshmallows (until S’mores came to Texas Girl Scouts, I happily thought it a Yankee activity). I can take a long fork, put 2 Marshmallows (from my secret stash), turn the gas on, and be eating the gooeyness of them all in about 60 seconds. YUM

NOW FOR BENJAMIN . . .
“The refusal of King George III to allow the colonies to operate an honest money system, which freed the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators was probably the prime cause of the Revolution.” Benjamin Franklin

You all must know by now that America has been in the clutches of the money manipulators for a long, long time. Lucky for Americans and American prosperity, two things were at play until the last 40 years or so:
1. God’s protection to this Republic that was created for God’s Glory (not going to waste time proving that again. Either you are well read and know this, or you are happy letting the money manipulators write your history for you.)
2. The Money Manipulators kept out of sight far enough to let America be the shining example on the hill. Sadly, as soon as they decided to come out into the light, and destroy America, the majority of American’s lost their faith, and belief in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Don’t believe me? Just turn on the television. On a side note: Satan is laughing his “buttocks” * off when he sees the young folk making the millennium old hand sign beckoning him to them. Sad, but true.

*My attempt to use a politically correct word. Why is this a better word than ass?????

Okay, the following explanation is OVER simplified for the hope of my making my point about money:
Money should be based on labor – man hours’ possible x 3 levels of population – 1. Dig the ditch level of labor; 2. Build the infrastructure of all the buildings and ditches; 3. The truly talented and CREATIVE – and I don’t mean those that can dunk a basketball – I mean those that can create a clean water system in the desert so all men have water (go R. O. Systems for Africans who are living in a place where the natural water is undrinkable!) X population of all 3. There would be a formula for how much money should be in circulation, which can be corrected daily via a computer program I could probably write, and that actually puts me in labor camp 2. above, though I would aspire to work myself into 3. above.

What you have is a bunch of paper that the Federal Reserve (a corporation that has nothing to do with our government / Congress which is supposed to be printing our money) gives to America, and charges America interest to do this! For printing paper! NO. Now days, for typing 1’s and 0’s into a computer program. For this, we paid /owe them trillions in interest over decades upon decades of charging us this interest.
This is thievery on a level so deeply wrong that those who perpetrate this system on Americans should all be thrown under the jail forever (and he, the chief instigator of this will be one day thrown into a pit of fire). If a court made the Fed give back all the interest they should never have been paid – because it was stolen under false pretenses to the American public – we, as a nation would not be in debt.

Some will say that if the Fed didn’t do what they did, we would never have been a great country. LAUGH OUT LOUD AT THAT. We are Americans. We are different. We have been exceptional up until the Fed took the mask off and I am ashamed to say – they bested Americans through trickery, and through everyone’s greed (Enron, .COMS, UNEARNED HOMES, the war on poverty that has created the most horrible never-ending poverty system the world has known, the war on drugs in which politicians and drug lords ensure we will never win . . . the coming college education loan bubble). All of those BUSTED BUBBLES? Well, Americans were tricked into them in part, and American’ s are still learning a hard lesson about greed, and the death of their faith.

. . . I bought some bushes, ground cover, and a tree for our new front yard from the biggest nursery online I could find. I bought a one-year guarantee. When the tree died, and now the bushes and ground cover are dying, I tell John – go and get our new tree and bushes, please. John reads the fine print. I am going to have to pay half price for them (I paid half price originally). So, if I am stupid enough I will buy them again for half price – NO WAY!!! John pointed out that the one-year guarantee only cost me $4.95.

AMERICA! WHEN YOU SET OUT TO GET SOMETHING FOR NOTHING – DO NOT BE SURPRISED THAT NOTHING IS WHAT YOU WILL END UP WITH. Juanita

Boy, do I feel stupid!!!! $4.95 for a one-year guarantee on hundreds of dollars’ worth of a tree, bushes, and ground cover?  Shame on me. I do know better.

Folks that think you should pay someone who flips hamburgers the same as the man who designs and builds homes, and the same as the man who saves lives, are foolish. We are seeing first hand this week what happens when you pay millions of dollars to a man who plays a game, and you pay Firemen, Policemen, and Marines a pittance in comparison. One, we need to re-check our value system. Two, we need to unpeg our dollars from the Fed, and re-peg it to the labor of Americans who work – physical labor, supporting labor, and creating labor. I worked my way up from physical labor to supporting labor faster than many folks, and I worked my butt off. My fuel was to raise my kids to be the best Americans I could muster with all my WORK, heart, prayers, and soul. Being an American was, and is a worthy thing to be for us Baby Boomers and our parents – Americans are amazing. Because of my values, my children are each equally successful, part supporting labor, and part creative labor. We better hope that the majority of Americans under the age of 45 are the same type of Americans as my children.

It didn’t happen by accident. When my son thought money was growing on trees – in his mid-teens, I arranged with my business owner a summer job for him. My son, that I love, squatted down with a jack-hammer punching holes in concrete for rebar; and he accused me of trying to kill him . . . LOUDLY FOR ALL MY BUSINESS OWNERS AND SUBORDINATES TO HEAR!!!!!!! . . . (we were all older and wiser LOL) . . . and on the day, 2 weeks in, that he received his first paycheck, he stopped crying, and started being the best jack-hammer operator there is. At the end of the summer, he bought a used Dodge truck that he loved, and we had to say NO, you cannot quit school to work. Jeeeeesh, kids – gosh I miss my little. people . . . then my young people. They have little people and young people of their own, and I am proud.
————————————-
So, I am not going to hide anymore behind the one commentary that I hated to have to write. I will publish it sometime in the next couple of weeks; for I know I must conquer this one or stop writing. Love to you all. Prayers for you all; and I do thank you for your prayers for my love and I.

Just My Opinion on Trump . . .

Reagan skipped the last debate BECAUSE HE HAD NOTHING TO GAIN, AND EVERYTHING TO LOSE – – – TRUMP is smart to follow suit. ALSO LIKE REAGAN – TRUMP HAS A VERY LARGE NUMBER OF DEMOCRATIC VOTERS WHO WILL VOTE FOR HIM – ALONG WITH INDEPENDENTS AND REPUBLICANS.
My final statement has to do with those who say Trump isn’t as good of a Christian as they are . . . LOL . . . Read Your Bibles – God has used some very colorful characters to bring the flock back into the fold.

FROM THE HEART: OH, SAY DOES THAT STAR SPANGLED BANNER YET WAVE . . .

I don’t promise to be here every day, but do promise to try with the Lord’s help. My friend sent me something today that brought me to tears. I have heard this story before, and it always brings me to tears . . . please watch / listen and share this link:
https://www.youtube.com/embed/YaxGNQE5ZLA
That eleven minutes and 38 seconds seemed about a couple of minutes to me. And at the end is this: Psalm 33:12  “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom He hath chosen for His own inheritance.”
AND I WOULD ADD: “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.”

Do you think our children and grandchildren understand?
I know that my husband and I do.
My husband is an American Hero, a United States Marine. Even though his disabilities including cancer are directly caused by Agent Orange, he still loves that flag and the country it represents. When we see the dumbing down of our kids, our military being demeaned, our churches being secularized, the bleak display of the destruction of our culture on television by the disgusting lack of morality, principles, and values, we may want to feel hopelessness – but that is what the enemy within is counting on. The enemy within works by the hour to destroy us. How much time do Americans put into peacefully countering the enemy within?

Every day we hear that the enemy within is using our own laws to defeat us . . . why aren’t we using our laws to defeat them? There are two standards in America today – one for them – and one for us. If we are to earn the title American, we do not support such injustice. Politicians and Judges who represent the destruction of America are able to do so because Americans are not peacefully gathering from sea to shining sea to have our voices heard – not at a rally once a year – but every day until the choke hold the enemy within has on our Republic is undone. If we were to do so, evil would shrink back into the shadows almost immediately. The enemy thinks you are spoiled and do not care . . . I refuse to believe that is true.

We look at today’s Americans and are in absolute astonishment when we realize that about half do not understand what they are in the process of giving away. I did a series of commentaries a few years back at webcommentary.com asking the question for each American to think about when it comes to stepping up by being a candidate, helping good candidates get on the ballot, and showing up to vote – to ask themselves: Why not me?

Between 37 and 56 percent of voting age Americans actually turn out to vote. That is pitiful. The percentage of fraudulent voting would not be effective if every American old enough to do so would register to vote, and then show up to vote. The only way America wins is for true Americans to show up 24/7/365 days. Be the leader that helps others to understand that America is under attack from more fronts than we even realize – from leading your families – to leading your communities – even leading in high office.

FROM THE HEART: REMEMBER WHO WE ARE

I ask you to take the time to listen to President Kennedy’s Innaugral Address, when even Presidents knew you could not, should not, leave America’s Christianity outside the door to our service, our jobs, our schools . . . Our lives.

AND I implore you to listen to President Kennedy’s Secret Society Speech:  http://youtu.be/zdMbmdFOvTs

AND REMEMBER WHO WE ARE, AND THE VALUE OF OUR AMERICAN CULTURE.

GOD BLESS AMERICA.

EINSTEIN, GOD, KENNY ROGERS, ME, GLENN BECK, JESUS, YOU . . . Where is America headed?

“People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.” Albert Einstein

God created time and would agree with that sentiment; especially since God is outside of this space / time continuum He created for us. Einstein also stated that he thought the universe was infinite, and that he might be wrong about that; and indeed he was wrong. We now know that the universe is finite, and digital. If all of the magical discoveries of DNA did not convince you of the existence of our Creator – our “intelligent designer” – then perhaps the newfound scientific discoveries of our reality will convince you. The fact that the THEORY of Evolution has never been proven, that we now know is impossible (not to mention totally unknowable) should have compelled us to stop teaching it to our children. The only evolving that is of any size is in the negative direction, not in any improvement. The fact that we now know that there are at least seven more dimensions in existence that we cannot know by personal direct experience, but science on the quantum level cannot move forward without them, should knock your socks into next Sunday. I see a little mental smiley face in my mind at this point in my little talk here with you.

(Pause here for a moment to decide if you are going to believe the discovered truth and go look for its evidence for yourself, or if you prefer the little dumbed down state the state has you in. What did Kenny Rodgers say? I just dropped in to see what condition my condition is in . . . yeah, yeah . . . yeah . . . )

I personally believe we lost our awareness of those quantum dimensions when man was ejected from being in a perfect state with God. Why man was not “naked” before ejection should be a question that pops into your mind when reading Genesis. Once we return to an existence with God in perfection we will be like God, in His image, and no longer dwelling in these fleshy containers we are always in such a rave about. We will all be truly beautiful.

I just broke a few rules about writing in telling you all of that before I get to the subject at hand today. I need for you to understand that I am a person who is studying God’s word. I am not the person I deal with regularly who tries to define what those words are and who wrote them without ever doing in-depth study of the Bible.  The rhetorical devices used to fool people into dismissing the Biblical truth by pulling the wool over their own eyes and yours by using group think, rationalizing, wishful thinking, relativism, proof surrogate, and at least ten other rhetorical devices for clever arguments that people take seriously – well, what I am really saying is that perhaps all the many rhetorical devices were originally created for this one purpose – to separate you from your Creator.  The “pen is mightier than the sword” – indeed! I have never seen so much effort to downplay and hide a truth from humans with reasonable thinking skills as this effort to separate you from the truth regarding your Creator.

The bottom line is that those who criticize and ridicule do so because:  if they can believe there is no Creator that gave us ten simple to understand laws to live by, then they can do anything they desire to do to themselves and others. The problem is that when there are no foundational human laws, you are either one of the few rulers, or you are the ruled masses. If you were born in the Middle East and happen to be a woman, a Christian, or a Jew it can mean suffering of the most horrid scale of what a human without conscience can do to hurt others. If you have a choice, and are still adamant about giving human rulers absolute power over you, I do get tired of hearing you complain about it! Listen up those of you in Detroit who have voted for progressives for decades to your own demise, yes, you are a few that my remark was talking to.

Today, I heard Glenn Beck talking about Hope and Faith, stating that one led to the other. In my mind, that is just as dishonest as the Hope and Change that the current Washington group of thugs were elected on. IT IS EMPTY. It is only my BELIEF in the Gospel in the scriptures regarding our Lord Jesus Christ that defines my faith, and gives me hope for my eternal soul by way of salvation. Only He that Created me is able to give me the gift of eternity with Him – by way of demonstrating to hundreds of people alive at that time how huge his dying for us – shedding His Life Blood – when He could have chosen not to feel the very human aspect of a painful death – but chose to do so – and then come back to us, proving that “death” did not end Him – giving us eternal hope. Whether “pagan” religions before the Gospel were prophetic in many re-occurring details, or evil in nature to poison the minds of men, I do not know – nor do they hold any interest for me beyond basic study of history. I seek the truth of things, and through prayer believe that the truth has come to me.

My very nature was changed by my Christian Belief, and then I was truly able to benefit from my inner well of Faith, Hope, and Charitable heart and soul. Because our Creator is “supernatural” (compared to us), I have absolutely no problem believing He could come to us as Jesus, and as the Holy Spirit. Why does man have such a hard time believing our Creator is “supernatural?” It would take a “supernatural” intelligence to create us to begin with. That much should be a no-brainer . . . you would think, wouldn’t you? Without our BELIEF in our Creator and the promises He has made to us who do BELIEVE, we could not possibly know exactly where hope, and faith come from.

I do my own reading of the scriptures and come to my own understanding, but no one comes to the Lord without hearing the scriptures from someone who has made the same journey before us. I just so happen to understand how taking things to prayer works – and prayed for someone whom I specifically could understand, because digging through the scriptures by myself – well, I was coming up short of real understanding, and I was smart enough to know it. When I prayed for some guidance, I prayed for the best – and somehow, Dr. Chuck Missler came into my vision of awareness. I honestly cannot remember how I learned of Dr. Missler, or his entire lifetime of Bible studies. One of those things I look back on as a mystery that I just cannot explain! I remember the day I met my husband. I remember the days I met my daughter and my son. I can remember the day I interviewed for each position in my always upward moving career. I can tell you that the Holy Spirit has been leading my life for at least twenty years almost exclusively. Before that I was only allowing the Holy Spirit to lead when I failed . . . THAT, MY FRIENDS IS BAD PLANNING!! I have now had so many miracles in my life, that to tell you all of them at once, you would just be dumbfounded. You need to experience miracles in your life to be a believer in them. Hearing about mine may make you feel good for the moment, but you would never want to live vicariously through my miracles when you could be living your own.

Coming full circle here – I didn’t like what Glenn Beck had to say this morning, and I do like the man. I believe there are foundational differences between his religion and mine – but that is for you to research and discover on your own. Like so many religions or philosophers, they say that hope leads to faith or vice versa, but never explain how. What Glenn was leading us to this morning is very important to all of us . . . where is America headed? I offer you the following video of Dr. Missler’s to help you begin your search for the truth of this matter. I then recommend you go to prayer to find assistance from the Holy Spirit to find the information that others would present to you. Then take it all to prayer again – I promise you that I have never been disappointed in the results from this practice . . . but I warn you that you may start seeing miracles in your own life, and miracles keep you in a state of wonder.

Dr. Chuck Missler Where Are We Headed (Part 1): He gives a brief explanation of his history, which is interesting in and of itself, and then goes on to talk about America’s future from a Biblical perspective.

D-day FDR prayer. (two steps from hell, heart of courage)

Our Christian Faith was our greatest strength. Our Christian God was our protector and definer of who we are as Americans. FDR knew this. Our parents and grandparents knew this. The phrase “Separation of Church and State” is only a quote from one letter, and taken out of context – never anything to do with our Constitution and our Law – A LIE AS IT HAS BEEN USED BY OUR ENEMIES WITHIN TO DESTROY US. What have you done to defeat Satan in this lie? To do nothing is to render all our war heroes to have served in vain, and many to have died in vain.

Memorial Day

My Hero is my husband, a man named John. He is a happy, calm and peaceful force. He loves God. He loves me. He loves our combined children, their spouses, and their children. He loves America, and the American people, whether they deserve his love or not. He is forever prepared in his mind and soul to be a skilled force that is uniquely an American Marine. He is an American Hero. I love this honorable man with every fiber of my being.

On this Memorial Day, I realize that our National Cemeteries dearly hold the remains of thousands of American Heroes. Many of these Heroes lives were cut drastically short because of their Honorable Service for you and me, our ancestors, and future generations of Americans. One day, hopefully a long time from now, John’s physical remains will be buried in a National Cemetery in Texas. By virtue of being blessed enough to marry an American Hero, my remains will rest next to my husband. For eternity my remains with be surrounded by the remains of American Heroes. It will be an honor for which I will thankfully accept as a gift from every American Hero who has died to keep me safe and living in liberty.  I pray to deserve the sacrifice these American Heroes gave for me.

Taking the time today to give honorable recognition in loving and respectful memory of our fallen American Heroes should be foremost in our minds as we spend time with our families and friends. You may desire to show your respect by having an extra place setting at your dinner table for those who have fallen in service to our Republic. As we sit down at our individual holiday dinners let us all remember to lift our glass in a toast to our absent American Heroes . . . and a prayer for those troops serving around the world for their safe return.
