PART TWO – RUNNING IN CIRCLES – ANSWERS

I KNOW!!! What I wrote in Part One was personal, and shocking for that reason. Yes, but, this issue needs exploring to put it in a healthy perspective. It may be an almost exclusive WHITE MIDDLE CLASS issue – I don’t know for sure, and I certainly do not mean to leave anyone out of this group of Boomers due to my ignorance. First, for clarity: What you may, or may not, have perceived from Part One of my commentary is that I am very proud of my son, his soul-mate wife, and my grandchildren. How could he be my son and not be independent, immediately and passionately (inside his domain / home) family oriented, and successful at whatever he chooses to endeavor. When I do see him, he is very forthcoming with apology for his busy life, and never forgets to tell me he loves me. On many occasions over the years he has sincerely rewarded me with praise. I have a file full of Birthday, Mother’s Day, and Christmas Cards that say wonderful things – not just about his opinion of me – but also, about he and I. Over the last 5 years many people have contacted me privately to tell me their woes that almost mirror mine identically regarding our mostly absent Generation X children (Gen X). I believe I know of several reasons that work in conjunction with each other to have left us with the outcomes we are experiencing. We are a significant number of the Baby Boom Generation (Boomers) who are experiencing the loss of immediate and close relationship with our Gen X children.

1)   An easy one: Boomer’s Parents, and our schools were strict. When Boomers were children, we – who mostly spoke when we were spoken to – made up our minds that we would discipline our children in kinder ways, and listen to what our children had to say. OH boy!!! Speaking for me, I was an idiot. Before the last 20 years with John, I was for all practical purposes a single parent (even when previously married to another child to raise). What my children knew about manipulating me with guilt, even when they were five years old, would have shocked me if I had understood it at that time.

These Gen X children who voiced their opinions on everything under the sun have decided that the candy-xxx discipline we doled out was excessive. Right. Taking my son’s phone out of his bedroom until he brought his grades up, each and every time, caused my son to opine of how truly cruel I was. Well, always, within a week he would bring me notes from all teachers who would relay to me that his work was all turned in and his grade back up to an A or a B – depending on the subject. Discipline works.

One of the chief reasons these Gen Xers avoid us is their embarrassment when their children behave like undisciplined savages. Two minute time outs do zero to discipline children. When one of his children behaves in such manner around John and me, I can see the pure frustration and embarrassment in my son’s eyes and his body language. He knows I can read his signs, and that just compounds the whirlwind of feelings in the room. I can totally understand that his life is easier if the evidence of failed modern acceptable discipline results are not seen by me. When I explain how my young son was the happiest when his boundaries and known consequences were enforced, I also seem to lose any possible bond with my daughter-in-love.

2)   Gen X children are too busy to include their parents in their lives. Fair enough. But, we must ask why do they schedule themselves and their children 24/7/365 days a year? I don’t have a lot of answers here, but do know that their lives are so full of scheduled events, I worry that they have enough time with each other – much less time with John and I.

I remember watching my son being crushed under homework every night and most of his weekends when I made the decision to pull him out of the “gifted and talented” curriculum at school. I believe children need to be children, and that means they should let their imaginations run wild playing outside with other children. My children never met strangers, so they were really good at socializing. If you want to hear laughter in and around your home, you must let your children play outside until they smell like wet puppies.

It seems like our grandchildren’s playmates and best friends are their parents who take them to play dates, and birthday parties’ non-stop all year. On top of that they are taken to dance lessons, acrobatic lessons, piano lessons, and other kinds of lessons. When do these kids get to be in frequent free play outside developing not only social skills, but practical thinking on your feet skills?

3} Below are descriptions, an expert has given to the Boomers, and Gen X which most of our children were born into. I think it gives us some insight into the phenomenon of our children loving us from a distance.

“BOOMERS Born 1946 – 1964

An amalgam of two distinct sub-sets:  the save-the-world revolutionaries of the ‘60s, followed by the self-improvement party’ers of the late ‘70s and early ‘80s.  Career-driven.  The Golden Generation in the American workplace.  Assertive.  Leaders.  Ethical.  Demanding.  Struggled with marriage and parenting.  America will now be a Boomer-led nation into the 2030’s.  This generation will never fully retire, and this is about to change America’s workplace, marketplace, and lifestyle profoundly.

GEN-X Born 1965 – 1981 – [My children were born 1973, and 1979.]

The latch-key kids grew up street-smart but isolated, often with divorced or time-starved dual-career parents.  Entrepreneurial.  Independent.  Creative.  Career “free agents”.  Feel disempowered and disengaged.  Eager to make marriage work and “be there” for their children.  Starting to chalk up some victories in life.  X’ers are rising.  They’ll lead America in the 2030’s and 2040’s.  They will give our nation excellent “idea leadership” but will need training to become good “people leaders”.

“FIRST-WAVE MILLENNIALS Born:  1982 – 1996 (and still coming!)” You can go find this group if you are interested. They are our grandchildren, and some late Boomer children – but, not the Boomer children we are thinking about in this commentary.

____________________

The first thing I noticed is that the “expert” wrote something negative about the Gen X childhood because of their parents, and nothing about Boomer parents. I could write a book on how dysfunctional most Boomer homes were. If they were not actually divorcing, they were constantly threatening to. What sticks out most for me, is that because Boomer parents experienced the Depression as children, and WWII in their teen and young adult lives, they often lived through us – and even forcing us to be whom they wished they could have been as teens and young adults. It is hard to measure up to someone else’s dream. But, I digress . . . we are trying to understand why so many Gen X children have little time for their Boomer parents.

I believe that many Gen Xers hold some kind of a dual loving admiration and jealousy of who we Boomers were, and the world we lived in . . . let us look again at pieces of the Boomer description:

“Career-driven”

We Boomers were “fast trackers” – “movers and shakers” – well read – over educated – self-educated – an amazing society of engaged and successful people. We lived the American dream. White and Blue collar workers came together to achieve the most amazing advances in every industry on the planet. We enjoyed the last decades of true Capitalism, which made the Middle Class grow by leaps and bounds. If this was not Gen X parents, they felt like they were cheated. If it was their parents, they also felt cheated because we worked 55 hour work weeks to get ahead. At the time, we were determined to give our kids any advantage possible to insure their futures were as bright, or brighter than ours.

Somehow, many Gen Xers did not appreciate the link between the Middle Class lifestyle they enjoyed, and how hard we Boomers worked. It also seems probable that when Gen Xers size up todays often negative atmosphere for similar levels of endeavor, they have given up without showing true American Culture at its best, by peacefully fighting back to make the ultimate checks and balances of our government work, and answerable to We The People.

Many Boomers realized that the link between home, food, clothes, schools, entertainment, and the massive man/hours we worked to achieve the best we were capable of providing, was not translating to the values our children should have received by the process. Like many, determined to make them understand, I sent my Gen X teenagers out into the world to earn money after school, and summers.

I remember the first week my teen son worked on a concrete crew; a job I had attained for him. He railed against me for two weeks; claiming I was trying to kill him via jackhammer death in the crouched position to make holes in concrete for rebar. At the end of his second week, he received his first paycheck – and Katie Bar the Door!!!!!! This is undoubtedly the planted seed of why he works so hard and owns his own business. (I really need a smiley face here!) At the end of that summer he wanted to keep working and earning money, and screw school. Not a chance my genius son would be allowed to drop out!

My son received that job because of my connections. Jobs for teenagers in America was a part of our heritage. Due to open borders, the summer and after school jobs that should have been there for our teenaged Gen Xers, to build their young character on, went to adult illegal aliens. When they graduated and entered the workforce, not only did many have no experience to put on their resumes, but the national economic failures left few jobs for them to have. Even those who attained degrees were working for a fraction of what they dreamed, for so long, they would be earning.

Gen Xers by the thousands compared their lives to their parents, and it became easier to disconnect from us than to feel they had failed to keep their place among the Middle Class they were raised in.

Here is where Boomers can visualize good reason for resentment: The day of honorable Capitalism is gone. What our Gen Xers are experiencing is a government hostile to the small and medium business. Endless laws & regulations steal the fruits of their labor. Laws like Obamacare are designed to put a burden on the small and medium business that it cannot bear. What our Gen Xers are dealing with is CRONY Capitalism, whereby large international corporations and our own out of control government are in cahoots to destroy the Middle Class.

Giving away our Gen Xers industries, jobs, and tax dollars to illegal immigrants, and our enemies in foreign countries has done nothing to bring up the standards of any other country, and sold out our American Culture and Heritage. We Boomers understand that the Gen Xers blame us. What the Gen Xers do not understand is that until the last two decades, the deceptions of our government, the undermining of our schools, and the trashing of our economy was done covertly. The last two decades are on both the Boomer and the Gen Xers for allowing it to happen. Sadly, our Gen X children do not have the necessary tools to do a peaceful economic and government re-set . . . they scarcely understand what our American heritage / culture is, therefore they blame their Boomer parents for their “bad luck.”
4)  Major differences in the Boomers and our Gen X children which has caused division over time:

–     Fear. Boomers experienced some levels of fear in their young lives regarding assassinations of leaders, Cuban Missile Crisis, the Cold War, and Vietnam. This pales in comparison to a long list of major events our Gen X children have experienced in their young lives moving forward to the present day: being desensitized by the sex and violence on the big and little screen, 9/11, crazy dictators obtaining Nukes, the roller coaster economy, EMP threats, trying to determine why there is government insistence on a debunked Global Warming – and all the business smothering regulations created because of it, terrorist threats including biological warfare, never ending wars and rumors of wars, explosive economy with constant threats of a dollar collapse.

–     Faith. Boomers were raised in an atmosphere of Christian principles and values, and a strong family unit. Even if Boomers were not actively attending church, or even Christian, society’s principles and values was the choice of America. 93% of Americans were Christian when I graduated high school in 1970. Of course there were criminals, because we are flawed humans. Most Christians in the 60’s considered themselves “born again,” gospel believing, Christians who were positively changed on the day they accepted the Lord into their lives.

The Christianity of today must largely be the apostate kind with weak principles and values, because we have millions of secularists telling us that evil or bad is just as valid for living as those principles and values that I have carried with me from my childhood forward. Today 78% of Americans are “Christians.” They do not like the crime levels, and ignored American Christian principles and values any more than I do, but they are willing to say your god and my God are the same god, and “whatever” when you try to tie them down on living in a Christian America. Just one quick example, in a sea of examples we could live by . . . we would have to throw out 95% of our television and movie content to bring our lives in line with Christian principles and values.

Due to my upbringing, Boomers expected to be instrumental in our children having a better life than we did. Due to my son’s upbringing, he expects to be instrumental in his children having a better life.
In the long run, and looking at the rule, and not the exception, our expectations will not be met, and more so for my dear grandchildren.

I do not have all of the answers as to why so many of our Gen Xers have distanced themselves from parents they love and respect. The several reasons above are part of the phenomenon. I have read that America has twice turned around inside of six months back to the Lord, and Christian principles and values. Is it possible for this to happen when so many are just making it through each day the best they can, and isolating those from their lives that may be able to help them more spiritually than the apostate church / secular church that is sweeping up our Gen Xers – if they even bother with church at all.

Many, many Boomers have abandoned our churches, recognizing them for the changed entities they are in the process of becoming. THE CHURCH IS THE BODY OF CHRIST. There should never have been division, upon division, upon division of The Christian Church. Along with these divisions – departing from our foundational Christian teachings for man-made denominational religions – departing from the worship in Jewish homes in the early church for man-made cathedrals and statues with so much money it could have fed the world over and over for decades.

My Mother’s Day card from my son, “Mom, I’ve been thinking of all the great memories from being your son! Thank you for all the fun and love I experienced through my life because of you!!” This doesn’t sound like a Gen X son who neglects his relationship with his mother. It is like my Gen Xer is away at some insane camp that Boomers are not allowed into. They know what we would say and do. The “wisdom of grandparents” is not something these Gen Xers are willing to allow into their lives, and their children’s lives. It would not be convenient to the image they have of themselves, when we are near and dear.

As I stated in Part One, I am always open to any ideas you have for solving this heart wrenching problem. How do we bring our Gen Xers back into our lives, and the whole country back to the Lord? It is true that all of the above is almost mind numbing when you consider it all together, but each issue needs to be reconciled before there is unity in our families. There is so much division in our land that is described as political, racial, ethical, etc. etc. etc. I know that our willingness to live with these political issues, without calling the leaders out for lying about every division they have caused, has left the nation in sad repair. Perhaps if we could solve the divisions between generations first, we could then tackle the rest of it together.

IN THESE TROUBLING TIMES OF LIES AND TURMOIL IN OUR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT . . .

I write of faith, honor, personal responsibility, and good vs. evil. I pray America reads Christian commentators, and rekindles our flame for the truth – and one by one The Sleeping Giant of the American people Wake Up. The Sleeping Giant of America was never her government, but the engine behind the government, We the People! Helloooooo? Are you there?

Do not be deceived. The enemy within and outward does not live by our code of honor, truth, and justice. You must never be deceived by the hordes of those who care not for your life, or the lives of your children. Oh Lord, help my nation see God’s Truth and Justice. In life and in death I shall love my God, my Creator, who created me in His Image, in His Truth, in His Commandments of Law. Yes and Amen.

No matter who has invaded the realm of our United States Constitution, we, God’s children will raise His standard once again . . . for our children. Throw off the chains of false money that is a lie. You work for yourselves and your families, and your local communities – this is what has been forgotten. They hope you will become hordes of anger and violence, so they can finally totally control you. Should the unthinkable harms come to America from our own government, you must remain peaceful, faithful, and of sound thought and planning to survive. In the meantime, turn off any media that offends our Christian values and the futures of our children — in violence for the sake of violence — sex for the sake of robbing our children and our marriages of goodness — and “news” designed to trigger your button to destructive anarchy. If anyone moves to encourage you to being brainwashed, tell them that the medias crossed the line of art and / or truth a long, long time ago.

Not to become self-pious as the pretenders of the Faith did many times before. (Inquisition, witch trials, and such in history.) But instead to live in faith, love, and personal charity as our grandparents did as the “greatest generation.” Together, we must re-build our industry / endeavor in America, remembering that we are still the “land of the free, and home of the brave.” We must reject those that come to break our laws openly, and invite those who come here legally. We can improve our immigration laws, but we must reject those who come to take our jobs, and remain loyal to another nation. Those nations all have very strict immigration laws, but shred ours to pieces – We Must Reject such one-sided thinking.

Our Christian strength must grow in our common Christian faith, and not be mired down in man-made denominational and secular curriculum. There will always be Christian denominations before Christ’s return, but they must not divide us as an American Christian Nation.

There are certain aspects of the Bible that we can all understand together. When Jesus walked the Earth in Biblical times, He was a Jew, and His original disciples were Jewish, and preached to the Jewish people. The Old Testament is the story Creation, and of why, who, when, and how Israel began, and its Jewish Biblical history. The New Testament holds the history of the prophecies being fulfilled regarding our Jewish King / Messiah. Because they knew not who Jesus was, God blinded Israel regarding Jesus until the age of the Gentiles / Christians was completed. The New Testament introduces one disciple for the Gentile, Paul. The Pauline Epistles in the New Testament were written for the Christian. The end of the New Testament is primarily written for Israel whom will experience the tribulation. The entire Bible was written for the Jew and the Christian for their learning and understanding of God, Jesus (God come to man on Earth as our Savior and our King), and the Holy Spirit (our connection to Jesus once he left Earth after His resurrection.)

Those are grounds we can meet on and delve into the deeper meanings from that common platform. It is interesting to note that today Jews are becoming believers in Jesus Christ as their personal savior. The entire Holy Bible is a message to man from God that has captured the hearts and minds of men for thousands of years.

The enemy wants you to deny your personal relationship with God, in favor of their group relationship with their false god(s). The enemy is preaching about a combined salvation of their group of political people in lies and treachery. The enemy places human life at the bottom of importance on Earth. They resemble Earth worshipers in their faith. They belittle you and desire to destroy you if you “cling to your Bibles.” The anti- Christian / anti-life enemy is the greatest destroyer of men and women – with their destructive agendas that they paint in pretty pictures that never happen. Their War on Poverty has managed to enslave millions into being dependent on the state, thus robbing them of full lives of good endeavor; and more often robbing them of a personal relationship with the Lord.

May I remind you of the scriptures regarding the “Whole Armour of God”:
“Ephesians 6:10-20 King James Version (KJV)
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 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. [I implore you to understand exactly what this is saying.]
13 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.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
19 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,
20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.”

WHOSE TRUTH DO YOU BELIEVE?

I received some interesting results from my last few blogs. I could go on for weeks posting interesting articles that are sent to me on a daily basis to prove a point regarding the illusive qualities of truth. At a minimum, these articles are very entertaining reading! There is so much information out there in the world-wide-web; finding the truth can be a very cumbersome chore. At the end of the day we do not know who to believe. As a conservative, I am a Blaze subscriber, but even Glenn Beck and I disagree on some fundamental issues such as his (and his loyal employees) take on Social Security and Medicare. Just because we subscribe to a hundred internet sites, does not indicate what we do and do not believe. Rather it could be an indicator of how sincerely we are searching for an ounce of truth . . . one ounce at a time.

I had intended to do similar posts containing partial truths for a few more days, but we need to move on to the point of these posts. Today’s post was to have been the best of The White Hat’s Reports . . . but I received this article from a FB friend this morning, and it kept me reading to the end – whether the truth or fiction it was entertaining:     http://divinecosmos.com/start-here/davids-blog/1051-g7banks .

The Boston Marathon Bombing events are no different than what we are bombarded with on the internet. On that awful day:
–     BEFORE THE BOMBING – We saw pictures of people in fatigues with large packs on their backs running with the rest of the runners. I don’t know exactly why these people were running in military garb – and neither do you.
–     BEFORE THE BOMBING – We see a “black ops for hire” group that goes by the name of “Kraft.” They are all dressed the same. They were either having their annual company get-to-gather at the Marathon, or they were hired to stand around and confuse the argument today . . . or they were hired to do “black ops stuff” of which I don’t know what all they actually do – and neither do you.
–     BEFORE THE BOMBING – We see dogs (we are told bomb sniffing dogs) and dog handlers near the finish line. I cannot imagine they were anything but what we were told, but I have no way of knowing – and neither do you.
–     The “person of interest,” becomes exonerated after being tagged as involved with terrorism at the Boston Marathon bombing. This guy has ties with high ups in Saudi – or so we are told. I have no direct way of knowing the truth about this guy – and neither do you.
–     BEFORE THE BOMBING – We see two brothers on film and still photos – who may or may not be Al-Qaida; who may or may not be CIA; who may or may not be FBI; who may or may not be lone wolf operators; and who may or may not be Saudi Terrorists. I have no sure way of knowing – and neither do you.
–     AFTER THE BOMBING – We see one film that is very dark, with police lights, and we hear a lot of gun fire. We are told that the older brother died of wounds and being run over by his younger brother. We see another film that is lit by headlights, and police lights, and we see the naked uninjured older brother being put into the back of a patrol car (which means they tortured him and shot him many times later in the night).” HOW ARE WE TO KNOW THE TRUTH? Are the pictures faked? And he is alive to do whatever it is he does another day? I have no way of knowing any of this – and neither do you.
–     Our presidents have had some unusual relations with Saudi Arabia. Knowing this, how are we supposed to believe anything our government tells us about – well, you know – Saudi’s are not checked before getting on commercial airplanes anymore – BUT YOU ARE, AND YOUR FRAIL GRANDMOTHER IS, A WELL AS YOUR SLEEPING TWO YEAR OLD IN YOUR ARMS?

Whether we are talking about Bush, Obama, Al-Qaida, CIA, FBI, or black ops – – – it could be said that they all believe they are doing the right things. They have tunnel-vision that makes them believe they are right and others are wrong. These people all have one thing in common . . . they believe the ENDS JUSTIFY THE MEANS . . . which translated means – I can do anything including murder to manipulate you to do what I want you to do if the end result is a good result. OMG!!! These people proved in one day that they could verbally control a large American city – the empty Boston streets was the most UN-AMERICAN thing I think I may have ever seen. Even after 9-11 we were still a mobile nation, including New York.

Unless you are very high up in our government, you and I do not have any way to know the truth from lies regarding events that affect all of us. Much of what America holds to be true today even defies common sense. How did we get here? Has there been a time when Americans had more control over what we did and did not believe? Yes. Certainly when local populations were much smaller, we could be reasonably sure of the local “news.” America grew and prospered, and proved to be made up of mostly good people for long periods in our history.

What was different was our Christian morality that most Americans lived by. What truths do I know that I can build a foundation on today?
–     I know that I am a created being, living in a created existence – created by God.
–     I know that my Creator / God came to Earth as a man, Jesus Christ, and He came to give us the good news of who He is, of who we are, and His plans for me long term.
–     I am instructed to not be deceived (and most of the internet is designed to deceive you). Even a snake oil salesman has to work harder than an internet article to make you believe his elixirs will work miracles.
–     I know that even if I am not held accountable today for evil deeds, I will be held accountable in the future by my Creator / God / Jesus Christ.
–     I know that when our founding fathers asked for God’s divine providence and protection, America grew and prospered. Americans LIVED THE BILL OF RIGHTS and the TEN COMMANDMENTS. Even those who committed crimes recognized when they went against these basic human laws.
–     I know that many people on Earth believe they are having connections with angels / supernatural entities. You better be close to the Lord so you will know the difference between one of God’s good angels such as Mary and Joseph saw and talked to, and Satan’s fallen band of angels. Until Jesus brings me back here with him for the Millennium spoken of in the Bible, Satan is here on Earth with his minions / band of fallen angels. Before the flood of Noah’s time, Satan’s band of angels came to Earth to mingle among us and breed. Those fallen will be here again in the times of trouble described in Revelation. You better be right with God, and pray for help to not be deceived.
–     I know that I am 60 years old, and when I was a child America was infinitely safer than it is now because 95%+ of all Americans, whether Christian or not, lived by Christian morality and values. I recommend to those of you who are not in touch with Christ through His Holy Spirit to get in touch now. America’s Christians from a not too distant past were believers with no reservations. In other words, we are to accept God’s laws, and not tell God that we are going to ignore this part of the Bible, or that part of the Bible. The Bible has all the words that God wanted in the Bible. If it isn’t there, God didn’t want it there. You can take all the “missing  chapters” that men tell you should have been in the Bible and put, them in the wood chipper. We are warned to not take anything away from the scriptures, and not add anything to the scriptures. We are warned to be careful if we are in a position to influence innocent minds, for we will be judged more harshly if we lead innocents astray. Yes, I grew up in a much safer America because Americans lived the Christian morality and values that make life much easier for everyone.

Can you imagine America cities where abortions are not needed, where all babies are wanted, where businesses regulate their own moral behavior, where education is created within local communities . . . where the community made of moral citizens who take responsibility for themselves, their families, and their communities? I can imagine it. I remember the responsible adults I grew up around, and their work ethic, and their generosity. I miss the America who mirrored President Kennedy’s words and truly ‘did not ask what their country could do for them, but asked what they could do for their country.’

I implore all people to remember that the most convincing lies are the ones that are peppered with some truth. When we have a moral foundation in our society, it is easier to decipher life’s issues together. If we are truly approaching the end times, as many of us can only guess at based on the world around us, then we are in a world evolving into the most confusing time in history. The war between good and evil is happening in the spiritual realm, and in the Earthly realm. When our enemies tell us that they are in a religious war with all who are not of their faith, we had better take them at their word. It is time for Americans to make it known which side of the Holy War they are on. If you don’t know which side you are on, it is almost too late for you to figure that out. I quote this often, because it lays it on the line so clearly, no one can read it and not understand . . . Ephesians 6:12 – 13  “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.”  YES; AND AMEN.

NOTE: My goodness, sometimes it is so hard for me to write. I am committed to posting on my blog every day, and it is only fair to tell you that sometimes I am able to write as well as I was able to years ago – but, sometimes, no matter how many times I read over it to edit – it just seems like a big fuzzy ball that has no real form. I apologize if I do not get the construction done well; I still hope to get the message across with help from above. Tonight’s vision is only double – thankful it is not a triple vision night. LOL God Bless you every one. If I am still fuzzy tomorrow, I will just have to post a song we haven’t heard in a long time, with why it is a good song. Later . . .
