WELCOME

Knowledge, inspiration, and encouragement from a Christian perspective is my goal. I post a weekly commentary, which could be about world events or the events of my week. Other days I might share stories, recipes, homemaking tips, book reviews, political talk, biblical truth, or other blogs and websites I like. This blog is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get.

OUT OF CONTROL

"What we have here is another example of our government being out of control. The Patriot Act, hastily passed forty-five days after 9/11 in the name of national security, has turned various departments of the government into cancers. Their only purpose in life is to grow in their ability to monitor and control the lives of every American...Big Brother is monitoring everything we do. If you send a birthday wish to Grandma, you might was well CC the folks at Homeland Security."

Big Brother Stocks Up on Ammo
from Rapture Ready 
The recent purchase of ammunition by several federal agencies has triggered a stir in the blogosphere that monitors government activity. First, the Department of Homeland Security ordered 450 million rounds of ammunition, then the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) submitted an order for 46,000 rounds, and the Social Security Administration placed an order for 174,000 rounds.
The Department of Homeland Security has made other big purchases of ammo. According to Major General Jerry Curry, USA (Ret.), earlier this year, the DHS ordered 750 million rounds of hollow-point ammunition. It then turned around and ordered an additional 750 million rounds of miscellaneous bullets, including some that are capable of penetrating walls.
Hollow points are designed to expand as they strike human flesh, causing maximum damage. Since these types of bullets are banned by the Hague Convention of 1899, Declaration III, the only logical target they can be used against is the citizenry of the United States.
There doesn't seem to be any plausible reason for this huge order of ammunition. It can’t be just for training; there aren’t that many weapons in the U.S. to fire it. In the war in Iraq, our military forces used about 70 million rounds per year. Right now, the DHS has enough ammunition to empty five rounds into the body of every living American citizen.
I'm amazed that no one in Congress is asking why the weather people would need to be so well armed. I had no idea it was so dangerous at the Social Security Administration. Since the folks at the U.S. Post Office face the greater threat from barking dogs, I'm surprised they haven't asked for an allotment of tactical nuclear warheads.
What we have here is another example of our government being out of control. The Patriot Act, hastily passed forty-five days after 9/11 in the name of national security, has turned various departments of the government into cancers. Their only purpose in life is to grow in their ability to monitor and control the lives of every American.
“The price good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.” That observation from Greek philosopher Plato is as profound today as it was when he first made it over 2,400 years ago.
Governments serve a vital purpose, but they need to be kept in check. The lessons from the rise of despotic governments are much like the plots of numerous science fiction movies in which computers take over the world: If you don't have a firm grasp of the government's "off" switch, the government will come looking for your "off" switch.
I'm constantly seeing in alternative news media examples of people who've had their civil rights trampled on by the government. One of the most wild reports is the plight of Brandon Raub, a 26-year-old former Marine, pro-liberty activist, and Virginia resident. He was seized by the FBI and Secret Service agents over posts privately made via a Facebook game Raub was playing with his siblings. The goon squad couldn't think of anything to charge Raub with, so they had him committed to a mental hospital. A few days later, a judge ordered him released after a public outcry. The treatment of Raub was a travesty of justice, but the true outrage was the revelation that Big Brother is monitoring everything we do. If you send a birthday wish to Grandma, you might was well CC the folks at Homeland Security.
The government seems to have totally lost sight of the original cause of the September 11 attacks. The trial for the five men charged in planning the murders of 2,976 people has been on hold for nearly a decade. Last week, the defense said it does not expect the "trial of the century" to start until 2016--fifteen years after the attacks. It will actually take less time to grow the trees used to print the legal documents in this trial.
A growing number of people realizes that America is turning into a Big Brother state. Lubbock County Judge Tom Head is warning that Mr. Obama winning a second term would lead to a revolt by the American people and possible invasion of United Nations troops. “He’s going to try to hand over the sovereignty of the U.S. to the United Nations," the judge told a Fox News affiliate. “I’m thinking worst-case scenario,” Judge Head explained. “Civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war maybe…we’re not just talking a few riots or demonstrations.”
I doubt there are enough liberty-loving people in this country to stop a tyrannical grab for power. A huge factor in the lack of support is the number people who receive aid from Uncle Sam. Right now, there more than 110 million people in this nation are on some form of welfare. Most of these people don't care if chains are being placed on their hands and feet, just as long as their mouths can still reach the government teat.
The declining state of America reminds me of a recent journey I made to the JFK Airport after visiting New York City. After spending a few days on Manhattan Island, I left by taking the subway all the way to the airport. As I progressed towards JFK, the quality of the neighborhood steadily declined. At one point, there wasn't a building to be found that wasn't marred with graffiti. Even though my sense of danger was telling me I was headed in the wrong direct, my map told me I was headed in the right direction.
If America reaches a point where it is no longer the home of the free, we can rest assured that there is place where there is liberty. I will gladly take the kingdom of Heaven over the earthly kingdom we have now.
"And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away" (Revelation 21:4).

WHEN THE CLAWS COME OUT


 A friend of mine said something today that set my mind whirling.
She said, "I've learned to be friends with women." 

Why would that comment turn my wheels? Because I talk so much on this blog about how women have such a hard time getting along.
In fact, the most popular post on this site is about that very subject. My friend's comment made me realize that the way I respond to difficult women is just as important as how they treat me.  

My first instinct is to avoid women who are unpleasant. Over the years I've experienced many situations where women made me uncomfortable. I'd start talking to them and within minutes I'd want to get up and walk away. From the things they said and the way they looked me up and down, I got the feeling that they were competing or trying to prove themselves.

The feeling probably began in about eighth grade and continued through high school and beyond. And now that I'm fifty, I've discovered that some women never stop being competitive. So my way of dealing with it is to avoid them completely.

But is this the right way to respond? The comment that my friend made about learning to be friends with every woman made me wonder if that's really possible. Can I learn how to rightly respond to women who have their claws out. Would my right response make a difference?  Instead of avoiding them, should I be doing something else? 

It's so much easier to avoid unpleasant people. It takes a lot of mental energy to deal with someone who doesn't like you. Feeling like you're constantly being attacked isn't a nice way to feel. Does God really blame me for wanting to walk away or would He prefer that I handle it differently?

The Bible has the answer for every problem, so I tried to recall verses that might address this issue. I thought of the verse that commands us to do good to those who persecute us and to pray for our enemies. Okay, so does that mean I can avoid a difficult woman as long as I pray for her? That's doing good, right? 

Somehow, I think God expects more of me. He expects me to be an example. But how can I be a blessing to someone who curses me everytime I'm around her? 

It took two days for me to figure out the answer to that question. I remembered a book I read a while ago that addressed this issue. The answer lies in staying focused on the reason why any woman would be mean to you. What are her motives? If you've done nothing to deserve the attacks, then the problem lies with her, and that's what you must focus on. 

I shouldn't focus on my own hurt, I should focus on the hurt that's causing her to attack me. More often than not, the root of the problem is her own insecurities. When a woman feels threatened, her claws come out. When she feels envious, her claws come out. When she feels like she doesn't measure up to what the world expects, the claws come out. Everything in me wants to fight back or just avoid her completely, but that's not helping her overcome her insecurities. 

God expects women to encourage each other, build each other up, and love one another. By avoiding difficult women, I'm not loving them. The better thing would be to find a way to help her see her own strengths. Give her a sincere compliment. Point out something she does well. Every time she gets a jab in, I could challenge myself to encourage her with a response that builds up her self image. It wouldn't take long for her to realize that I'm not someone she should dislike.

Now that I figured out the answer, it's time to put it into action. It won't be easy, but I'm going to try. I truly believe that God rewards us for things like this. Whenever we do the more difficult thing, but the right thing, we get rewarded. God makes our effort worth it.

Friday is girls night. It's my turn to play hostess, and I'm thinking picnic food. Here are some great recipes I came across while surfing for ideas. Now all we need is some great weather to go with the great food.

INSANE SPENDING, MESSING UP THE ECONOMY

"The Obama administration has been spending money on some of the most insane things imaginable.  For example, in 2011 the Obama administration spent $592,527 on a study that sought to figure out once and for all why chimpanzees throw poop."
http://endoftheamericandream.com/archives/thanks-obama-here-are-24-stats-that-show-how-much-you-have-royally-messed-up-our-economy 

COMPETITIVE WOMEN LACK CONFIDENCE

"I have seen women compete in fashion, decorating their homes, ownership of vehicles, jobs, education, finance,
their children’s achievements, food preparation, all in an effort to show those around them that they have something the other woman cannot or does not have.


To me, it seems, that competitive women, themselves, are actually lacking something within. If they have to compete to prove who they are, their motives are self-centered. When all is said
and done, I feel that selfishness lies at the root of their efforts. A woman who knows who she is and what she has and has direction for her life stands on a certainly surer footing"

WOMEN WASTING TIME

Women keep bringing up the subject, so I keep posting. This subject, competitive women, has become a pet peeve of mine. I think competing is the biggest time waster that women take part in. What do they get out of it? Yet every week I come across a woman who obviously strives to be better than the woman next to her. So sad that she can't relax and step out of the competition.

NOVEMBER WILL FIX NOTHING

"This nation cannot survive because of the people who populate it. Good luck fixing that on November 6, 2012, because your choices are Stephanie and her friend, and Stephanie and her friend."

If you read anything on this blog this week, read this. It is a perfect example of why America is such a mess. Watch the video and listen to what Stephanie and her friend have to say about their attempt to steal money from a nine-year-old who was selling girl scout cookies. Then you'll understand the comment in quotes above. 

The only thing I would change about that quote at the end of the article is to say the nation can't survive because of the people that lead it. Greedy people with no sense of morality like Stephanie and her friend are the reason America is sinking. And I completely agree, good luck fixing anything in November.

Reality Check: Obama Administration Refuses To Tell Judge If NDAA is Be...

BIBLE COMES TO LIFE

The video below is a little dramatic but very informative. What he talks about is not the mark of the beast, but it's preparing children for the future. Children are being trained to think that having their hands scanned for food is normal. This is a big step toward a world that isn't far off. It's a world that the Bible talks about where you have to have a mark on your hand to buy anything.

Outrageous fruit prices in western NY

"Watchman Nathan Leal mentioned in a dream he had back in 2009 that it cost 30.00 dollars for a cafeteria meal sometime in the future after the economy crashed. I think that we are going there very soon. Prices are soaring for food almost daily on most everything we buy! I went into prayer about this insane food inflation and the Lord directed me to read JOEL Chapter One in its entirety which clearly explains about the crop devastation from drought, fires, floods and freezes. It also mentions locusts which I believe might happen soon to the crops that survived. It warns the farmers that they will weep and and howl from the judgement of the LORD! Even livestock is mentioned to perish in the first chapter of JOEL. It also mentions in verse 19 that the pastures and fields are devoured by flames which may take place in the near future as this drought rages on."

Luke 21 (King James Version)
Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying , I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them. 9 But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified : for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by. 10 Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: 11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.12 But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake.13 And it shall turn to you for a testimony.14 Settle it there fore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer:15 For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist .
Yea, and all that will live godly( faithfully) in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution  ( 2 Tim 3:12 )

THINGS YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW BUT SHOULD

"I want to address the fact that the so-called Palestinian people want a two state solution.  Here is their logo and you will notice that there is only one country and that is Palestine.  Israel, isn’t!  This is their logo and I wonder how many American people are aware of their position so blatantly stated?  Why hasn’t the weasel-in-stream media, shown this logo to the people and commented on it?  Why is it that most Americans aren’t aware that HAMAS, the terror organization in Gaza,  will  never recognize Israel, not even one grain of sand?... You see, most people don’t understand the hatred of Israel that lies at the heart of the Muslim Brotherhood, which by the way is beginning to crucify it’s opposition, literally!"

WHAT I'D SAY TO A SNOW QUEEN

 I used to be one of them...those try-to-be-perfect women. I exercised like a maniac to stay a size four. I applied make-up with thoughtful precision. Never would I let myself be anything but perfect. I thought that's the way women needed to be. If I wasn't perfect, I wasn't deserving of anything, not even love. 

I guess it was getting older that brought me to my senses. Slowly I climbed over that wall of perfection I had in front of me and began to relax. Now and then I dared to show my flaws, admit my insecurities, and be real instead of perfect. I became better at apologizing, which is impossible for the try-to-be perfects.

Women responded differently to the new imperfect me. They laughed with me, opened up their hearts to me, and felt more comfortable around me. I had taken off my tiara and suddenly I was approachable. I went from being a  snow queen to being someone women could relate to.

Sadly, I see many snow queens around me still. Women who can't let themselves be anything but perfect.  They are too proud to admit their lives aren't perfect. Too proud to admit their husbands aren't perfect. Too proud to admit their children aren't perfect They have to keep everyone fooled. The fairy tale must continue.

What would I say to a snow queen? I'd say this: You're wearing yourself out with all this pretending. You're playing a part you're not getting paid for. Let the world see the real imperfect you. The rewards for that are much greater than what you'll get from wearing the tiara. 

Nobody likes a snow queen. Snow queens are lonely because the icy wall of perfection keeps people away. People appreciate vulnerability. They have compassion for women who faulter at times. But they can't relate to someone who won't let her life look messy. You're not fooling anyone anyway. People know your life isn't perfect. Why not let yourself be real and see the difference it makes. 

Megyn Kelly of Fox News learned this lesson and she writes about it here.

Today, I returned to the abortion clinic where I aborted my babies 12 years ago | LifeSiteNews.com

"As I left, I tried driving through my tears. How do you get past the heaviness that you feel for the babies and for the women who will suffer depression, addiction, suicidal thoughts, and lifelong regret?
However, once I stopped crying, I became very angry…like Jesus-turning-over-tables angry. My friend John, who prays outside of this clinic every day, said that he cannot get one church to support him. He wasn’t even talking about financial support…he was talking about prayer support, sending people to pray, anything.
This infuriates me.
Honestly, this makes me never want to step foot in a church again.
There are hundreds of churches within a 15-mile radius of this Orlando abortion clinic. While they are updating their offices, paying for sound systems, and preaching their fluffy messages, babies are dying…over 3000 a day."

ICE CRACKING UNDER OUR FEET.

First, the threat of implosion that America faces is bigger than the next President can solve alone. Americans are deeply worried about the future of our country. They fear the ice is cracking under our feet. They increasingly fear we might not simply be in a period of decline, but rather may be facing the collapse of our economy and society. And they are right to be concerned.

 The federal government is spending $41,210 every second more than it receives in revenue. We already have a $15.9 trillion debt. We’re facing about $60 trillion in unfunded liabilities coming at us that we cannot afford, all related to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Our ship of state is heading for a debt iceberg of enormous proportions that will sink us if we hit it. 

Yet the current administration has accelerated the pace by which we are accumulating more debt. The White House, thus far, refuses to slow down or change course. Add to that fiscal threat the moral threat. We have murdered more than 53 million babies and are rapidly approaching 60 million abortions. We are guilty of rampant pornography, horrific levels of violent crime, and our families are melting down as a result of adultery, separation, and divorce. We are rapidly approaching a point of no return. The problems we now face are so profound that the next President — no matter who he is — will be overwhelmed.

Will we say, "Charlie was right?"

This article was posted Thursday, but I hesitated to share it because it sounds so earth shattering.  Several times in this article and in the video Charlie says, "You are under attack." I thought that would turn people off and they wouldn't read or listen any further. But I decided today to post it anyway and let you decide for yourself. It all sounds like crazy panic, but Charlie understands things that go on behind the scenes. He's a frequent commentator on RT so he's seen as an expert by alternative news that offers unbiased information. 

I think we just don't realize the complexity and the severity of what's happening. Either we don't want to know, we don't care, or we just refuse to believe the truth. We look at a guy like Charlie and think he's nuts. But I have a feeling this guy knows exactly what he's talking about and I sense that he speaks the truth. Sometimes the truth is really hard to accept. Will we look back some day soon and say, "Charlie was right?"

FIRST JEWS, NOW CHRISTIANS...THIS IS SERIOUS

"Right now the soul of America is at stake. The recent attack on Chick-fil-A was just a test to see what would be the reaction of the American people. The Fascists had to back off as the people were not with them. They are desperately trying to marginalize us. Once we are marginalized, they will then begin to demonize us. This is the path of all totalitarians towards people against their agenda. 

At first the German people were not with Hitler about the Jews. The Nazis kept the propaganda going nonstop and eventually the Germans finally accepted the lies. Once they accepted the Nazi propaganda, it was not long before they were killing all the Jews.


This is now what is happening in America. The reprobates are now desperate to get at the real church. They need the public on their side. They need something or some event to demonize believers, so they can start the persecution. The Hard Left is as evil as the Nazis only they have been restrained and have not been able to act out. Now the restraints are coming off. They have huge sections of the government and military on their side." -John McTernan

MIGHTY RIVER RUNNING DRY

http://www.thetrumpet.com/article/9694.8596.0.0/world/environment/the-mighty-mississippi-to-run-dry

BIBLE PREDICTIONS ARE HAPPENING NOW

Last night my husband and I were shocked to see so many "Out of Stock" signs sitting on the grocery store shelves. I never saw the canned food aisles so empty.  Either people are stocking up or the manufacturers are having a hard time getting the ingredients they need.

The skyrocketing food prices and food shortages described in Revelation 6:6 are happening right now. The Christian persecution described in Matthew 24:9 is happening now. The human identification devices described in Revelation 13:16 are becoming more a part of our daily lives. And the Luke 21:25 signs in the sun, moon and oceans are happening right before our eyes. You cannot deny Bible prophecy.   -Danelle


"Since 1977 I have done my best to warn people what our future would look like. I warned people to watch the sun, watch the intense heat that would be coming, watch for the water supply to shrink, watch for famines to spread, and crops to die off from the droughts. Everything I warned about was taken from the Word of God. 

I am no prophet however, I know the Word and the Lord's warnings and I believe in His Words.  It has only been in these past 3 years where people are finally seeing what I have been pointing to all these years. The Holy Spirit has it appears to me have picked up His pace to bring in the last remaining souls into His Kingdom before the rapture takes place.  All I can do is preach what Jesus has warned you.  

If I could I would drag you into Jesus's Kingdom kicking but only the Holy Spirit can convict you to turn to Him and repent of your sins.  I will do this, I plead with you to look at all the signs Jesus told us we would see just prior to His second coming. If you do this I am sure you will see we are just about out of time before the Lord looks down on this Planet and says something like this, “This is the day I have chosen to remove my Church and begin the final countdown for my second coming” those who are of my flock come up hither”.    -Frank DiMora

THE MORALITY PROBLEM: JESUS WARNED US

Senseless Acts of Violence
By Jim Carvell 
 
With these recent events around the world where one person takes lives and wounds the bodies and minds of innocent victims and their families, we need to understand these events are most likely not going away. Actually, they will grow worse and worse until Christ returns to put all His enemies under His foot (power). (Hebrews 2:8 ) &  ...All power is given unto me (Jesus) in heaven and in earth ....( Matt 28: 18)
The Apostle Paul in (2 Timothy 3:) tells us ... This know also, that in the last days perilous ( violent w/ raging insanity ) times will come... He then lists nineteen personality behaviors some people will posses during these days. I will use just a couple to make my point. He said some will be without natural affection, this could mean to be simply unsociable or does it mean without natural affection one learns from growing up in a loving, stable family, which is far less in existence today then ever before. He also said some would be incontinent, meaning without self control or not being tame. He said some would actually be fierce, meaning brutal. Last he said some would have a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof. 
This brings me to my point, Paul tells us then in verse 13 of (2 Tim 3:).... But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse...These senseless acts of extreme violence which are growing in number, are the lacking of true godliness in our citizenry. Our morals have decayed, our values and thinking are becoming twisted to the point of insanity. 
These acts are not a gun problem. The guns on their own do not commit violent crimes ( main stream media ). But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away by his own lust (desires), and enticed. Then when lust has conceived, it brings forth sin (gives birth to sin), and sin, when it is finished, brings forth death. ( James 1: 14-15 ) 
The world needs JESUS and His POWER thereof. Not more blaming of guns or more gun laws which will not work, since guns are not the problem.
The Apostle Paul said it best when he said, For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to the Jew first, and also to the Greek ( to the rest of us )....(Rom 1: 16).

Big Brother Surveillance Technology On The Increase

It may not be long before this blog gets pulled from the internet. Below is what happened to a Christian blogger who is preparing to shut down his blog. It's also an example of what's already happening to prevent the truth from being told online. Big Brother is picking and choosing what we can say and do on the internet.

GOD WON'T LET KIDS GET AWAY WITH IT

I often wonder what's happening to our children when I see the level of disrespect that they show toward their parents. It seems that everything a parent says is questioned and challenged by today's kids. Do you ever see a child saying, "Yes, Mom I'll do that or Okay Dad I'll do what you ask."? Children today act as if they are their own authority. They act as if their parents are stupid, uncool, clueless, creatures who lived during the stone age and can't possibly understand what life is really like for teenagers today. 

Parents are unfair and mean and only want to squash their fun. "Why are you doing this to me?" they ask when they don't get their way. Then they slather on the guilt parents are supposed to feel when kids don't get what they want. "You don't love me. You don't care about me. You want me to have a boring life like you.."And on and on it goes.

When I was a teenager, I had to work up the courage just to ask my mom to go somewhere. I remember sitting in my bedroom for hours trying to decide exactly how I should ask and when would be the best time to approach my mom. I didn't assume that I had the right to do anything. I knew that everything I did had to meet my parents approval. I was submissive to their authority. I respected them as my caretakers and if they said No to something I didn't protest and argue until I got my way. I didn't scream and stomp and cry. I simply accepted the No and went to my room. 

Yes, I was disappointed many times but I survived the No's. I lived through all the times I had to stay at home. And today I'm grateful that I wasn't raised by parents who let me do everything I wanted because some of the things I wanted weren't good for me. I couldn't see it at the time, but years later I realized that my parents had my best interests at heart. They loved me and when they said No it was because they thought they were doing the right thing for me. 

What's happening today is nothing less than a spirit of rebellion and disrespect overtaking our children. It's a satanic spirit that no one wants to talk about but it's there. You can't deny it. If you have pre-teen or teenage children, you know what I'm talking about. Unless your children have accepted their god-given authority and completely pulled themselves out of this world, they are probably rebellious and disrespectful. They want what they want when they want it and they will fight anyone who tries to keep them from getting what they want. 

How does this happen? Why were children so agreeable and submissive thirty years ago but today they treat their parents like bank tellers and drivers who are only good for giving them what they want and getting them where they want to be?

All you have to do is watch TV, go to the movies, or listen to a child psychologist to find the answers. Parents are made to look uncool and stupid on TV sitcoms. Kids rule the roost in today's movies. And child psychologists tell us that we have to be careful not to hurt our children's feelings and we have to watch how we discipline them because we might destroy their self esteem and scar them for life. 

While rebellion and disrespect is made to look cool, anyone who tries to instill discipline is seen as an ogre. Parents are told that they have to be a friend to their children first. And many of them shove aside the much-needed discipline in exchange for being a best buddy to their kids. And they raise manipulative brats who think only of themselves, kids who never see consequences for their actions. Their parents bail them out every time punishment is about to fall and these kids think they are invincible. They think they are above any kind of rules, any kind of law, any kind of ethical code. The message they hear is that they can do whatever they want without answering to anyone.

When children willingly place themselves under the authority God has put in their lives, God protects them. While rebellion opens children up to the influence of Satan. Rebellious children who don't respect their parents give the enemy many opportunities to attack them. By being rebellious, they step out from under God's protection and they suffer satanic attacks on their mind, will, and emotions. 

Submitting to parental authority brings great blessing and protection. Children don't realize how much they hurt themselves when they talk to their parents disrespectfully and when they talk about their parents to others in a negative way. God sees this. He hears every word. And he has the power to cleanse this rebellious attitude right out of them in whatever way he pleases. Proverbs 21:1 says, "The King's heart is a stream of water in the hand of the Lord; he turns it wherever he will."

Rebelling against parents is like rebelling against the God who put them in authority over you. Ephesians 5:21 says we are to submit to God-ordained authority "out of reverence for Christ." A higher authority controls every human authority and we need to seriously consider the consequences we bring upon ourselves by taking that for granted. Our parents may let us get away with rebellion, but God surely will not.

 

BILL GATES ABSURD LOGIC

“I don’t care who you are or what side of the vaccine philosophy you fall under, there is no logic in the world that can explain going into a remote village and giving children who only eat one meal a day and have never had clean drinking water, a vaccine. Seriously? 

Think about it. Can you imagine walking up to this precious little girl and saying ”I know you are starving, but here is a measles vaccine instead. I promise this will make you much healthier than food or water”. It’s a scary day when simple logic no longer exists. Food & Water, nope. Vaccines, yep. And innocent children suffer the consequences. It’s absurd."

THE THREAT TO TRUE HEALTH INFORMATION

"Some of you may at this point wonder why I report on an issue such as this, so let me make this point clear. Access to health information could easily be deemed a "threat" to national welfare—especially when web sites such as this one publish information that contradicts the official government stance. Examples such as advising women against national mammography screening standards, or raising concerns about vaccine safety, or questioning conventional cancer treatments could all be considered a threat to an extremely profitable status quo. 

 In such a scenario, they could simply shut Mercola.com, and others like us, down; leaving you with no truth-telling, corruption-exposing, alternative voices other than the officially sponsored viewpoint. And it should be quite clear by now that the government-sanctioned stance on most issues relating to health and diet are primarily dictated by powerful lobbying groups furthering financially-driven industry agendas that have absolutely nothing to do with optimizing health and longevity."

TOP TEN TUSCAN TOWNS

Here's another great place to go to. It's number one on my list of places I'd like to visit. I'll probably never get there, but it's fun to think about what I'd want to see and do when I get there.

A PLACE TO GO TO

Tomorrow morning my family will be heading to Tioga County Pennsylvania for a relaxing weekend at camp. My husband and his brother own a hunting camp deep in the woods off Route 6, outside of Wellsboro. I love going there because I'm always in a different state of mind once I get there. People in that neck of the woods move much more slowly than people in this area. 

No one ever flies around us while driving or impatiently follows too close behind.  No one seems to be in a hurry to get anywhere, and the relaxed pace of others has a calming effect on me. Everyone should have a place like that to go to. 

Alot of things have been going on that would make me want to escape. I turned 50 this year and with that number came painful back problems and six months of chiropractic therapy. I'm also developing some scary arthritis symptoms. I thought I might feel like this at 80, but never expected it at 50. 

So physically it's been a trying year. Perhaps six years of chronic insomnia is taking its toll. I'm not sure what's going on, but the challenges have been more than physical. Along with health problems, I've experienced some people problems. People who misunderstood my words, people who overstepped their boundaries, people who made hurtful comments...this year has been full of them.

There were days when I wanted to lock myself away from the world and just spend all day with God. He's really the only one who can make me feel better. Reading his promises for health, healing, and peace are just what I need when I'm hurting physically and emotionally. He knows every detail of my life and he cares about my pain.

One thing I learned in 50 years of life is that people will always let me down. Now, even my own body is letting me down as arthritis is a disease where the body attacks itself. It's hard to understand why God allows suffering, but I do feel His presence in the midst of it. And I know that if I had a happy-go-lucky life without struggles or pain, I wouldn't need God as much. I wouldn't seek Him, and I wouldn't be writing this blog.

In fact, I began writing the blog shortly after I became sick from a prescription drug. I'd probably still be working full time if my health problems hadn't pulled me away from that. I am exactly where God wants me, arthritis and all, and that gives me peace. I know His grace is sufficient to carry me through whatever may be next.  Life will always let us down, but when we put our faith in something bigger, we're able to handle the pain and disappointments.

I gotta go pack now for my weekend getaway. I hope you find a few moments of peace yourself this weekend. Scratch whatever you can off your list and go sit under a tree next to the trickle of running water. Listen to the sounds of nature and listen for God's voice. He's there waiting for you to find Him.

Turmeric Works Better than Drugs for Rheumatoid Arthritis

I've been researching ways to treat rheumatoid arthritis without prescription drugs. Six years ago my life was turned upside down from the side effects of a prescription drug and I have a hard time trusting them now. It seems that the side-effects of these drugs are always worse than the problems they are supposed to treat. The article and video below is from Dr. Mercola, whom I believe is the best doctor to listen to when it comes to natural treatments.

To truly be loved

Here's another great blog to explore. I discovered it through one of my members.  My number one way to discover great bloggers is to check out the blog list of everyone that follows me and every time I come across a blog I like, I always explore that person's blog list. Like-minded people like the same things, so it makes sense.

Refusing To Put A Normal Child On Psych Drugs Results In Swat Teams and ...

IT'S ABOUT MORE THAN A CHICKEN SANDWICH

"American Christians are facing uncertain times. Our nation’s values are under assault. Religious liberty has been undermined. We live in a day when right is now wrong and wrong is now right.
The vicious left-wing assault against Chick-fil-A should serve as a wakeup call to people of faith. It’s not about a chicken sandwich. It’s about the future of our country."

UFO OVER THE OLYMPICS

This is old news, but you might not have heard about it. This is one of my husbund's favorite blogs to read. We have almost all of the Watchers DVD's.  UFO's are actually described in the bible, so you don't have to be "out there" to believe in them. I just added this site to my list of links. You might want to add it to yours.
