My Rule for Life

I would rather live my life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't, and die to find out there is.

IN GOD WE TRUST!!!

I got this email from a friend today. It hit me like a bolt of lightning. First I can't believe a US Post Office would be made to take down posters saying "In
God We Trust" but, I couldn't believe a Courthouse would be told to remove the 10 Commandments either. Anyway it sounds like a good idea to me and who knows maybe the idea will grow and become a "pandemic". What a bunch of horse manure! Anyway (#2) I am making bright colored return envelope lables on my printer tonight with the top line saying "In God We Trust" Let's take back America! One envelope at a time!

Payback is fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WRITE IT ON THE BACK OF YOUR ENVELOPES or front.
WE THINK THIS IS A GREAT IDEA. WE'LL START WRITING IT ON THE FRONT OF OUR ENVELOPES, TOO! ----------Including Bills
You may have heard in the news that a couple of Post Offices in Texas h ave been forced to take down small posters that
say
'IN GOD WE TRUST ,' The law,they say, is being violated.
Anyway, we heard proposed on a radio station show, that we should all write
' IN GOD WE TRUST' on the back of all our mail.
After all, that's our National Motto, and ----- all the money we use to buy stamps. We think it's a wonderful idea.
We must take back our nation from all the people who think that anything
that offends them should be removed.

If you like this idea, please pass it on and DO IT. The idea of writing or stamping......... 'IN GOD WE TRUST ' on our envelopes sounds good to us .
SOME PEOPLE ARE HAVING A STAMP MADE TOO........ lets use it as our signature on e-mails, too!
It's been reported that 86% of Americans believe in God. Therefore, we have a very hard time understanding why there's such a mess about having
'In
God We Trust!' on our money and having God in the pledge of Allegiance.
Could it be that WE just need to take action and tell the 14% to 'sit down and shut up'?
If you agree, pass this on, if not, delete!!!
BUT REMEMBER IF YOU DELETE THIS, that's one
reason why this world is in the mess we're in now.
WE SIT BACK & LET IT HAPPEN!! IN GOD WE TRUST

California College Strikes Again

Is there any chance the state of California might just slide off into the Pacific? This would spare the rest of The United States of America these continuing embarrassments? First you have the 9th Circus Court of Appeals. According to the Los Angeles Times, The 9th Circus also has a long-running streak as the most overturned, which went unbroken this year. The Supreme Court reviewed 22 cases from the 9th Circus last term, and it reversed or vacated 19 times. By comparison, the Supreme Court reviewed only five cases, vacating or reversing four, from the next-busiest court of appeals, the 5th Circuit based in New Orleans.

Only a short month ago I posted about a Los Angles Community College professor who threatened one of his students for using Bible verses in a Debate Class. To refresh your memory this Professor gave the class the rest of the class time off after the student presentation. He then later confronted the student away from the classroom and threatened to have the student expelled.

Now today World Net Daily and Fox news are running this article, Clik
here. The story is about one student who was praying on campus, for an ill professor. Her friend who wasn't with her at the time of her praying is being threatened because she was with her later in the day. This wonderful college is College of Alameda in Alameda, near Oakland. Remember this when you help your child pick a college to attend. They can't pray for ill teachers and probably can't pray for anyone or anything.

When did we lose control?

I leave you with this beautiful poem I was recently given.


Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you wake in the morning hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush.
Of quiet birds in circling flight,
I am the soft starlight at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry,
For I am the sea, the wind, and sky.

nap sued and other goodies

First let me thank all of you who responded to my post of the passing of my wonderful wife. I thank you for your prayers and comments. I wish I could personally thank each and everyone of you all in person. She was a wonderful person who will be greatly missed by me, her children, her grandchildren and patients. Bless you all.

While doing a little surfing on the net I came up with this very interesting article. Sue Janet Napolitano, she should be fired! Clik here for the complete story and other very interesting Conservative views.

Again, Thanks to all for your prayers and blessings.

Preaching to the Choir.

Preaching to the Choir or Ain't Google Search Wonderful.


It recently occurred to me that I (we Conservatives) have, as my wise father once told me, been preaching to the choir. I know many of us get on our blogs and write great interesting posts and our other Conservative bloggers read them. Then tell us how great the post was and how Liberals need to stop and see the destruction they are causing this great country we live in. But, we are preaching to the choir! We all ready know how much damage they are doing and how great this country is!! IMHO (in my humble opinion for those of you in Loma Linda) Rush joke, we need to preach to the left and liberal. The choir is all ready in the church!

Google Search is wonderful and even a dummy like me can use it. As you will see, I did! Some of the results listed blogs like The Daily Dose (Kos). I won't explain why I call it that. Ariana Huff and Puff and other sites of people who wouldn't believe it was raining outside if they came into the house wet. In that case we would be preaching to the brain dead!
I choose a site that listed both Liberal and Progressive blogs. My reasons were two fold. First, we are all bloggers. As I have seen in these past weeks we are a family. Maybe an electronic family but a family none the less. Since I began blogging about two years ago I have had maybe three comments or replies that were mean and cruel. By picking liberal and progressive blogs we have something in common. Second, Progressive people are not die hard liberals......they are...ah...ah... progressive. Not Conservative but, not liberal. Progressives are looking for change, therefore susceptible or open to a different idea. That makes them fertile ground for sprouting new fruit if nurtured right. Maybe just be a Conservative.

Now this is not an absolute so don't comment back it ain't gonna happen. Some seeds fall on the rocks and are blown away. Some fall on fertile ground and grow. We must sew our seeds where ever we can and help them to grow the best we can.
I did the ol' copy and paste of my search. The list is below. I am suggesting each and every one of us contact at least two of these sites on a weekly basis and try to grow some support for the Conservative cause. You all know President Obama has given us many, many broken promises and comments such as "America has at times been arrogant". By leaving intelligent and reasonable comments on these blogs maybe, just maybe we can do some good in 2012! I leave you with this thought. Some sat on there hands last election and we are in a pickle. Are we going to sit on our hands now? Or, are YOU going to..............
TAKE UP THE CHALLENGE
If you take up the CHALLENGE comment and let me know which blogs you are going to go to. I will then go to different ones.

Lutheran Pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Destruction of the embryo in the mother's womb is a violation of the right to live which God has bestowed upon this nascent life. To raise the question whether we are here concerned already with a human being or not is merely to confuse the issue. The simple fact is that God certainly intended to create a human being and that this nascent human being has been deliberately deprived of his life. And that is nothing but murder.
