IT IS BIBLICAL June 9, 2020

TEXAS LADY JUANITA

When I was young, I fell in love with a hymn that has stuck with me in my top ten favorite songs for about 60 years. I remember singing “Let There Be Peace On Earth” in church. I remember it being sung at Woodstock. Harry Connick, Jr., and Vince Gill are among the many star singers who have sung it. The lyrics that America would benefit to remember are at the end of this commentary. The lines I wish to share are: “With God as our Father; brothers all are we. Let me walk with my brother, in perfect harmony.”

Baby Boomers loving and learning such songs in our youth, it is no wonder that we expressed a love of all people to our children and demonstrated the same in our careers. My children did not have a racist bone in their bodies.

I have lived in six different states: Texas, Colorado, Florida, Louisiana, Nevada, and Illinois. Even though Illinois did not show the instant friendliness I was used to in the south, the racial issues was almost non-existent for my children, and for myself in all six states. Our President is man of his words. Unlike other Presidents, he has kept his campaign promises, and has been a successful champion of all minorities. My family is very alarmed at what we are seeing played out in the news by only a few of our 360 million citizens.

Our President is being persecuted by the D S for turning our Republic around to being a nation by and for the people again. I barely can explain to my grandchildren the evil lies and deeds that have happened in our nation in past administrations IN THE NAME OF AMERICA. Having been raised to treat all people good, and have proven themselves to be good adults, they do not deserve for their Republic to fall apart.

PLEASE JOIN ME IN PRAYER FOR OUR REPUBLIC, IT’S CITIZENS, AND IT’S PRESIDENT.

“1 Peter 2:15-17
For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men:
As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.
Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.”
[We have no king; we have instead a Constitution.]

“1 Peter 3:9-18
Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous:
Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.
For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:
Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it.
For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.
And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?
But and if ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.
For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.
For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:”

LET THERE BE PEACE ON EARTH
Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me
Let there be peace on earth
The peace that was meant to be
With God as our father
Brothers all are we
Let me walk with my brother
In perfect harmony

Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now
With every step I take
Let this be my solemn vow
To take each moment
And live each moment
With peace eternally
Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me

Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me
Let there be peace on earth
The peace that was meant to be
With god as our father
Brothers all are we
Let me walk with my brother
In perfect harmony

Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now
With every step I take
Let this be my solemn vow
To take each moment
And live each moment
In peace eternally
Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me”
