Billy Graham is now 96 years-old with Parkinson’s disease.    In January

2000 leaders in Charlotte, North Carolina invited their favorite son,

Billy Graham, to a luncheon in his honor.

Billy initially hesitated to accept the invitation because he struggles

with Parkinson’s. But the Charlotte leaders said,   ‘We don’t

expect a major address. Just come and let us honor you.’ So he agreed.

After wonderful things were said about him, Dr. Graham stepped to the

rostrum, looked at the crowd, and said, “I’m reminded today of Albert

Einstein, the great physicist who this month has been honored by Time

magazine as the Man of the Century.

Einstein was once traveling from Princeton on a train when the

conductor came down the aisle, punching the tickets of every

passenger. When he came to Einstein, Einstein reached in his vest

pocket. He couldn’t find his ticket, so he reached in his trouser pockets. 

It wasn’t there.  He looked in his briefcase but couldn’t find it. 

Then he looked in the seat beside him. He still coul dn’t find it. 

“The conductor said, ‘Dr. Einstein, I know who you are. We all know

who you are.I’m sure you bought a ticket. Don’t worry about it.’

“Einstein nodded appreciatively. The conductor continued down the

aisle punching tickets. As he was ready to move to the next car, he

turned around and saw the great physicist down on his hands and knees

looking under his seat for his ticket. 

“The conductor rushed back and said, ‘Dr. Einstein, Dr. Einstein,

don’t worry, I know who you are; no problem. You don’t need a ticket.

I’m sure you bought one.’

Einstein looked at him and said, “Young man, I too, know who I am. 

What I don’t know is where I’m going.”

Having said that Billy Graham continued, “See the suit I’m wearing? 

It’s a brand new suit. My children, and my grandchildren are telling

me I’ve gotten a little slovenly in my old age. I used to be a bit more

fastidious.

So I went out and bought a new suit for this luncheon and one more

occasion. You know what that occasion is? This is the suit in which

I’ll be buried. But when you hear I’m dead, I don’t want you to

immediately remember the suit I’m wearing. I want you to remember this:

I not only know who I am. I also know where I’m going.” May your

troubles be less, your blessings more, and may nothing but happiness,

come through your door. Life without God is like an unsharpened pencil

– it has no point.”

Amen and peace, my friends.  And may each of us have lived our lives

so that when our ticket is punched we don’t have to worry about where

we are going.

Even at his age and with Parkinson’s Disease, he could still deliver a

powerful sermon…..end of story.

 

And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”  Acts 4:12

Have a fabulous Sunday!  I hope we’re all as assured as Dr Graham is.

OF SOME INTEREST:  Albert Einstein received instruction in both Christianity (at a Roman Catholic school) and Judaism (his family of origin). When interviewed by the Saturday Evening Post in 1929, Einstein was asked what he thought of Christianity.

“To what extent are you influenced by Christianity?”
“As a child I received instruction both in the Bible and in the Talmud. I am a Jew, but I am enthralled by the luminous figure of the Nazarene.”
“Have you read Emil Ludwig’s book on Jesus?”
“Emil Ludwig’s Jesus is shallow. Jesus is too colossal for the pen of phrasemongers, however artful. No man can dispose of Christianity with a bon mot!”
“You accept the historical existence of Jesus?”
“Unquestionably! No one can read the Gospels without feeling the actual presence of Jesus. His personality pulsates in every word. No myth is filled with such life.

Albert Einstein could not believe in a personal God because he couldn’t reconcile God with the evil and suffering on the earth.  Mr. Einstein needed good teaching.

The N. Korean punk means it. Now what?

STILL FEEL KIM JUNG UN WILL DO NOTHING IN RETALIATION FOR OUR THREATS MADE TO HIM (FOR HIS THREATS TO US AND THE AREAS SURROUNDING NORTH KOREA)?    READ THIS.

His latest,  additional to the threats in the link, is “I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged U. S. dotard with fire.”

I’m hoping American minds in D.C. can wrap themselves around the fact that people like Kim are NUTS and will not do things we’d expect him to do, what Americans would do.  No, he’s insane and doesn’t care about us any more than he’s despised his own pitiful population.

Most of you have thought he’s bluffing.   Do you today?   He is all PRIDE and nothing will stop him from feeling like “the tough guy who did what he said he’d do!”.

If you still think he’ll do nothing….how do you think he’ll back out with his pride?   Because other than dying, he’s not going to give this up.

And, by the way……people in D.C. keep saying they’ll strike back to “reciprocate”…reciprocate like after losing San Francisco?  What the HECK?

Trump, the Media, the World…..and Sovereignty

I am of the opinion that Iran’s leader was as nasty as he could be at the United Nations because HE CAN.   He called Trump “ignorant, absurd and hateful.”

He went on to say “Any country that breaks with this agreement … has opened unwillingly perhaps a door to a lack of trust,” he said.  THIS from a man who’s called for “DEATH TO AMERICA!”   WHAAT?

There was some Hispanic U.N. bigwig who said Trump shouldn’t act like he rules the world when he can’t even rule his country.

You all know the drill.  And we all have to admit the nastiness from other countries has really become worse since Trump won.

Two things are behind this, I believe;  One is that Trump REALLY is ticking people off by telling his truth and condemning bad guys and saying things about other countries that aren’t popular or ‘nice’  but factual  Hallelujah!

Two, I believe our MEDIA has made it very easy for bad nations to insult our president because our own media is SO hateful toward him and it’s in the news every single day.

For years, even when they hated “the cowboy Bush”, they were at least vaguely respectful. Not anymore…..because OUR LEFT, which is probably all these world leaders read because you literally don’t get my conservative writing from America in Europe,  HATES TRUMP.   SO, country leaders feel emboldened by US….   Now THEY CAN and they CAN without much criticism.  See my point?  Agree?

RE:  SOVEREIGNTY;   Trump is being REALLY whacked by MSNBC and CNN and all libs because he mentioned SOVEREIGNTY plenty of times at his UN Speech….He’s even getting more grief because he talks about AMERICA FIRST.   You’d think he said Obama had bad breath!   CNN described the use of ‘sovereignty’ as a ‘buzz saw’….and one anchor said Trump calling Kim Jung Un “Rocket Man” didn’t even give him the RESPECT OF USING HIS NAME.    Respect to a guy who’s threatened us?

HERE’S THE STORY:  WHAT IS WRONG WITH OUR PRESIDENT PUTTING AMERICA FIRST?  It’s my belief that’s his NUMBER ONE JOB.   Saying AMERICA FIRST does not mean SCREW ALL OTHER COUNTRIES, it means our president will finally put US first in negotiations, first in everything.   It does not mean we hate other countries, we won’t help other countries, we think we’re far better than other countries.  (tho we are!)

Don’t you agree?  This, I mention because it’s so CLEARLY a refusal to THINK which represents the American Left today.  Which is nothing remotely new, of course, but their attitudes are resonating around the world and that’s BAD.

Get my point?

NEW CLIMATE CHANGE INFORMATION

…But, remember, it’s only INFORMATION when it leans Left….

THIS IS FASCINATING 

Notice how short the article is and how long the “The sky’s falling!” articles pro-climate change are.   But we’ve been right.  They are wrong.  We will never be heard.  They win.

And, by the way, you do realize that because we have remained calm regarding climate change does not mean Conservatives are pro dirty air, pro dirty water, anti-tree, etc., which is the insinuation, isn’t it.

But then truth comes out and we’re STILL STUPID?! 🙂

PIAZZA POWER AT THE PARK……..WHEN AND WHY DID THIS STOP IN AMERICA?

You all probably all know about this but I lived in Paris during 9/11 and hadn’t even heard about it….Saw it on Facebook and had to post this video down below…..I cried as I watched.  Enjoy!  We all need something THIS FANTASTIC these days….even (or maybe especially) 16 years after 9/11.   God bless America.  God bless Americans who can still cheer.   CAN WE ALL TALK ABOUT WHY THIS PATRIOTISM STOPPED AND WHY IT HASN’T COME BACK IN SO MANY AMERICANS?

Sunday Faith Blog….

NABEEL QURESHI, a hero of mine, has gone to Heaven.  THIS is the best piece I’ve seen written on him other than his amazing book which I have recommended here many times,  “Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus.”

He said, about his parents (his father being a 24 yr American military vet) so crushed by his leaving Islam and embracing Christianity,  “It was then that I wondered why God had let me live; why had God not just lifted me to Himself when I had found the truth? Why did I have to hurt my family so much, and practically eschew the ones who loved me more than anyone else?

The answer was sought and found in God’s word. After accepting Him, it is my duty to work for Him and walk His path. For now, my loss was to be comforted by His words found in Mark10:29-30:

“I tell you the truth,” Jesus replied, “no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age (homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields—and with them, persecutions) and in the age to come, eternal life.”

Well, God did not let him live, He has lifted him up to Himself.  He now has eternal life. Pray for his family.  Pray for those Muslims who he has left his testimony behind to;  pray they’ll read it because he so deserves that honor and the assurance that he made a huge difference for God.

As the linked article says “Entering into the joy of his Master, he undoubtedly heard the words, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.”

There are few men with this kind of faith.  Why God would take this young man in the prime of life and in such a painful way can hurt our faith or strengthen it.

I didn’t know him, but I will miss him.

WHY THE LEFT’S WINNING: MONEY

Yes, yes, I know….some of you don’t think the Left’s winning.  I congratulate you and would love the name of your Rose Colored Glasses store 🙂   (Do I see glimmers of hope, yes I do, but at this point?  they’re ahead)

Having said that, I want to say that, realistically, they are winning:  They’ve got our kids through schools, they’ve got many Americans through the leftwing media, etc., etc,… and I think of this a lot and wonder WHY?

Something I just heard made me come to this conclusion:

MONEY

   I’ve mentioned here a few times recently that THE LEFT HAS TIME TO SPEND ATTENDING PROTESTS, IT HAS THE MONEY FOR BUSES TO SUPPLY THOSE PROTESTS  THE PEOPLE THEY NEED (OFTEN FROM OUT OF TOWN), AND THE LEFTWING JOURNALISTS ARE FINDING  THE VERY TEENSY-TINIEST NEWS ITEMS THEY CAN GET THAT’LL MAKE THE TRUMPS LOOK BAD.  THAT TAKES TIME $$$

I ask myself “WHY DOESN’T THE RIGHT EXPOSE SO MUCH OF THIS?  WHY AREN’T THEY PROTESTING DACA, PROTESTING NOT BUILDING THE WALL, PROTESTING FOR LIFE,” ETC?

MONEY

We don’t seem to have a GEORGE SOROS and friends paying for this..for ANY of it.

SO, WHAT’S NEXT?   HOW DOES OUR AGENDA TO MAKE AMERICA TRULY GREAT AGAIN HAPPEN WHEN THE FINANCES AREN’T THERE?  

DO YOU AGREE WITH ME ON HOW IT HAS TO BE BIG MONEY FINANCING PEOPLE TO PROMOTE LEFTISM?
