“Blessed are You, Adonai our God
Who forms the human body with wisdom
And creates within it a miraculous combination
Of organs and arteries, tissues and sinews.
It is known before Your throne of glory
That if one of these were to be open where it should be closed
Or closed where it should be open
We would not be able to stand before you and offer praises.

Blessed are You, Adonai, creator of embodied miracles!”

This is a Jewish prayer my Rabbi friend sent me …  I thought it was beautiful and the sentiment was amazing……….He keeps us in one piece, this miracle of the human body, to stand before Him and praise Him………..what a sentiment.

I hope it touches you, too.  I believe it also reminds us of the comfort that He holds our lives in His hands…

“Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.”  Revelation 4:11

Happy Birthday, Daddy…I love you and miss you very, very much.

Bicyclist Pepper Sprayed…”just wanted to go home!”

WHO DO YOU THINK DID WRONG HERE IN THIS VIDEO?   (that didn’t work for some….so try this):

GMA’s reporter says “You said it! ANOTHER police encounter raising questions right now, and THIS TIME, two very different stories…take a look.”   First of all, what’s he mean by “THIS TIME, two very different stories..?” There are two sides to each story we’ve seen lately.  And “another police encounter” sounds like “another brutal police action,” doesn’t it?

PLEASE watch the video linked above and let me know your thoughts….it’s not long but it’s important you listen to the whole thing.  And I think it’s important we in America get a GRASP on what’s right and what’s wrong…and stop acting like “if cops are involved, it’s THEIR fault!”
Thanks!

Hillary Humorless

http://thehill.com/blogs/in-the-know/in-the-know/hillary-clinton-zach-galifianakis-between-two-ferns#.V-RPsy3YTmJ.facebook

I don’t know how many people actually saw this, but I thought it was a spoof until I heard more about it this morning….she was supposed to be funny and play along with Galifianakis, the host….instead……..eeeeooooo…she was AWFUL!

Hillary has no humor whatsoever….even I’m surprised.  And, of course, her minions are saying “That was shot the day she was diagnosed with pneumonia”… I can understand being out of form when you’ve got pneumonia but then don’t DO the interview, or go overboard to step up to the plate if you said yes, right?

OUCH!

(apologies in advance to Kid, who barely lets Hillary’s name in front of his eyes let alone watching her on a video!)

Charlotte, NC PROTESTS

What’s your take on the unrest in Charlotte?…. I can’t watch anymore.  Must it be on every single cable news show all night long?

It feels like a lot of angry people looking for a good excuse to feel powerful and tough.  I TOTALLY get really bad things happen between cops and citizens, and I am sorry that female cop didn’t tase and shot instead, but things have to change, we can’t have that happening anymore and we can’t have these ridiculous and dangerous protests anymore.

Ben Carson’s talking about “everybody getting together to talk.”   How’s that going to help? Who do you think will be come out ahead of that conversation?  One Black woman on The Kelly File reminded Americans after Carson spoke that ‘Who’s he to say anything, he’s a guy who tried to hit his mother with a hammer..’….does she know how long ago that was and what a stellar life he’s led since?  So how do we reason with that?

What are your thoughts?  HOW CAN WE COOL THINGS DOWN BETWEEN COPS AND PARTICULARLY BLACK CITIZENS?

Lying again….and again….

WHY DID THIS STORY DISAPPEAR?

Just NOW on Cavuto, I heard the State Department guy say that “Obama was right..at the time, we didn’t have a banking relationship with Iran so we sent the $400 million in cash.”

obama-liar-2

Pardon me, but the president did this cash transfer in the night in Iran, while hostages waited for that plane full of cash before they could take off, WITHIN the last 14 months, those same 14 months during which WE DID SEND TWO WIRE TRANSFERS.

When I first heard about these 2 money transfers, I thought “Well, that’s it!  NOW people will see how Obama’s lying!”  But, no.  Do you all SEE how much they can lie and get away with things when a media is acting like N. Korea’s media?   SILENCE…PROTECT THE LEADER.    With news like this, you’d think Trump could win, right?    Clinton/Obama…all liars….

YET….WHAT CHANCE HAVE WE?   THAT is EFFECTIVE….

WOW.

What would YOU DO?

I’m very curious about what you think of THIS………and/or the woman who quit because of it.

school-lunch

Republicans…do we punish the child because the parent is in arrears? It’s wrong to be in arrears, their parents should know better, it’s good for the school to get a LOT of that money back……so…….do we withdraw food from the children?  It did work.

Give me your thoughts.   If you don’t like the idea of punishing the kids, how would you collect?

Trump, Romney and Hillary….say WHAT??

Who the heck could find fault in WHAT TRUMP SAID HERE?   Even I can’t, for a change.

So the news was already on TV within 15 minutes of the explosion in NYC Saturday night (I know that for sure) and Trump mentioned it to a crowd and never assigned exact blame.   And, by the way, it looks like he was right in his subtle inference, though that’s not the point here.

“A short time later, Hillary Clinton told reporters aboard her plane that she had been briefed on “the bombings” in New York and New Jersey — criticizing her opponent for not deferring to local and federal law enforcement.    But Trump never said it was terrorism.  Deferring to WHAT?   Was there an edict to keep quiet about this though it was all over television for hours?  Oops!  After I’d published this information for posting, I found THIS! (it’s NewsMax, but it sounds like it’s right)  Gee, Hillary criticized Trump but she did the very same thing?  Say it ain’t so!

Mrs. Clinton and her minions are astonishing….I think their rantings and harsh criticisms are starting to be a good thing;  people see that she’s grasping at straws at any little thing Trump does and most Americans DO want someone who thinks the worst first….and feels it important to, as he said, “get TOUGH.” (re bombings, terror, etc)

We’re living in a world where any TINIEST phrase is harped on and slammed by the other side for DAYS….For example,  the Romney 47% thing…Maybe it’s just me, but I STILL don’t see what Romney said wrong when he talked about the “47%” and I’m waiting for some Republican to have the courage to say so.  Here ’tis:

“There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that’s an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what… These are people who pay no income tax…”[M]y job is is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.”   Mitt Romney.  Amen

The only thing I found incorrect here was that some of those people DO pay income tax…

Trump did nothing wrong re the bombings….or you tell me how he DID.   And do you still think Romney shouldn’t have won for having said that?  Can a Republican ever get a break?    They’re constantly hammering Trump for not being truthful when they’re backing HILLARY CLINTON?   With sycophantic adoration does all shame leave the mind of a liberal journalist?

Sunday Faith Blog

Subjects almost always pop up somewhere, somehow, for my faith blog, but nothing did for this one….except I kept reading from some of you that we need prayer in our country and so I had the feeling I should ask you all one thing:

To Pray for America.

pray-together

I doubt any blogger of faith hasn’t included this scripture at one time or the other, we’ve all heard it, but I need to use it today:

14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”   2 Chronicles 7:14

Mark 9:29  And he said to them, “This kind cannot be driven out by anything but prayer.”

plug-into-prayer

Please pray for our country……she so well deserves it.   If you feel comfortable, please type a short-ish prayer in Comments….even do it anonymously if you choose.  Or just say “I’m praying,” if you’d rather….Let’s get a LOT OF PEOPLE PRAYING FOR AMERICA!  It certainly can’t hurt!

THE DEBATE

I’D LIKE YOU TO GIVE ME YOUR SCENARIO FOR HOW YOU PICTURE THE FIRST CLINTON/TRUMP DEBATE WILL GO.  

debaters

Will she bait him?  Will he insult her?  Can he keep his mouth shut and not say something totally horrible?  What will he say when she gets him on his problems with voting women? What’s her Achilles Heel that he can attack her on?

Tell us what you think!
