The chief danger that confronts the coming century will be religion without the Holy Ghost,
Christianity without Christ, forgiveness without repentance, salvation without regeneration,
politics without God, heaven without hell.
“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.”
― William Saroyan
The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of the blessings. The inherent blessing of socialism is the equal sharing of misery. -- Winston Churchill

I believe in Christianity as I believe the sun has risen; not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else. C. S. Lewis
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
THERE WILL BE NO THREATS OF ANY KIND AT THIS BLOG, TO POLITICIANS OR OTHER COMMENTERS. thank you.
A friend sent me the quote below and I knew I’d been given my Sunday Faith Blog from greater minds than mine. That “greater minds” includes but is not exclusive (if you get my drift) to my friend Roger from Indiana who wrote this and sent it yesterday:
“America is “George Bailey” and the citizens are all his friends. In the movie “It’s a Wonderful Life” Bailey is a good solid citizen who runs a bank that has been very helpful to the community. George gets into legal trouble when money to be deposited is lost through no fault of his own. Actually it’s Uncle Billy who accidentally lost it. . Bailey is charged with the “crime” and faces jail time. When the people find out he’s in trouble for something he didn’t do, they all rally around him and help make up the loss so he’s cleared and charges are dropped. Americans are rallying around our country now. Nobody here caused the plague, but everyone wants to help our leaders find a cure. That’s the difference between Community and Communism, huh?”
It made me feel like crying. Seriously. I see all the GOOD going on in America these days and am stunned, humbled, so happy and so very, very proud. It makes me weepy to see New Yorkers, every 7 pm, open windows and clap and cheer and turn lights on and off for first responders, hospital staffs, etc. It makes me really emotional to see a planeload of Georgian (‘state of..’ not country) medical folks on their way to help New York, to see Samaritan’s Purse work so hard to get that hospital across from Mt Sinai set up so fast (though they got, instead of credit, a lot of criticism because, after all “what does Franklin Graham know about medicine?” as if he was the man walking around diagnosing and treating? Anyway, all these things ARE GOOD, THE BEST OF AMERICA.
And I ask for prayers for Americans. And yes, Roger, definitely…the difference between Community and Communism. Well said.
After every ‘speech’ VP Pence makes at the Update Pressers, he includes at the end “…heal our land.” A not-so-veiled reference to:
2 Chronicles 7:14 …. “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 will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
Have a great Sunday, Geeez readers; praying for you all….let’s all pray for each other….and our COMMUNITY.
Do you think that anything really could have been done earlier in fighting this virus had the impeachment nightmare not gone on? Lots of people are saying Trump was too busy with that to have paid much attention to rumors of a strange and dangerous virus. So it’s the Dems fault, they infer. Think so?
ALSO: Did you hear that Adam Schitt (oops! I’m SO SORRY!. No, I’m not!) is considering having hearings over how Trump’s folks have been handling this crisis?
TELL ME THIS ISN’T ABOUT THE ELECTION! Also, since the Trump ratings are high on the “How do you think Trump’s handling this thing?” question, isn’t it a bit STUPID for Schiff to even consider that action?
And now the media’s lying and saying Nancy Pelosi is going to altruistically overlook a task force of her own in making sure government checks get to the people when, in reality, she discussed overlooking the mistakes Trump was making with that, not just reassuring Americans they’d get theirs. #$()*&@#$(@*&$#(@#&$(*
WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT ANY OF THIS?
DO YOU BELIEVE FOR A SECOND WE COULD POSSIBLY GET THE CHINESE COMMUNISTS TO REIMBURSE US FOR THE HUGE, HUGE DESTRUCTIVE DEBT WE’RE GOING INTO BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T TELL US ABOUT THE VIRUS ON TIME? (LET ALONE THE DEATHS!)
TELL US WHAT YOU THINK…CAN WE RISK PUSHING THEM WHEN WE NEED ALL THEIR PRODUCTS?
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
I JUST HAD TO GO TO FEDEX YESTERDAY. YES, I DID. IMPORTANT NOTARIZED PAPERS HAD TO GET TO MY LAWYER OR I WOULDN’T GO NEAR IT.
I wasn’t pleased to have to go into a public place, but I had to. I walked into only 2 employees…one man milling about in the background, and a very pretty black girl at the counter “Hi, Ma’am, can I help you?”
“How far back do you want me!?” I laughingly asked. She breaks into smiles so we’ve cracked that ice!
“Just behind that line” (the normal line where people wait behind, by the way) She has plastic gloves on but no mask. Neither do I. She is adorable and informative and couldn’t be more helpful.
We talk the virus because while she’s doing my business, I’m saying “I wish this was OVER, it’s so awful!” She totally agrees, of course. And then I gulp and hit her with this:
“WHAT REALLY HURTS IS THE WAY THIS ADMINISTRATION (BEST NOT TO USE ‘TRUMP’) IS BEING TREATED FOR TRYING TO BE OPTIMISTIC!” I suck my breath in waiting for the same kind of disparagement I got from the notary girl yesterday and you know the feeling when you’ve just met someone and want to like them?
“I KNOW, “ she says with a very knowing look and even a half smile ..”…I THINK IT’S BETTER TO KNOW THE FACTS YET BE OPTIMISTIC, TOO…..THEY’RE FACING A VERY DIFFICULT TASK BUT ARE HANDLING IT WELL… AND I BELIEVE YOU’RE RIGHT ABOUT THAT”
I then wanted to LEAP across the counter and smack a BIG KISS on her cheek.
SO YOU THINK THIS STUFF’S GETTING TO ME?
Anybody else having nice encounters like mine yesterday?!
Meanwhile, yet ANOTHER liberal friend on the phone yesterday said exactly what my lib upstairs neighbor said 3 days ago “this virus is NEVER GOING AWAY” ARGH!!! WHO are they LISTENING TO??~!!! 🙂 CNN
AND HERE IS MY “WONDERFUL REMINDER” A FRIEND SENT:
“I THINK THAT WHEN THE DUST SETTLES, WE WILL REALIZE HOW LITTLE WE NEED, HOW VERY MUCH WE ACTUALLY HAVE, AND THE TRUE VALUE OF HUMAN CONNECTION.”
AMEN. Come to think of it, sure did fit my post’s point, didn’t it?
Every single time I go from FOX, (which is covering the virus with statistics, positive and inspiring stories, the truth of what’s still needed, the arrival of the navy ships to NYC and California, etc)….to CNN, I think “Let’s see all the NEGATIVES NOW…”
And that is ALL IT IS. Negatives. Every single time. Which is appealing to their viewers because LIBERALS LOVE BEING SAD. This virus thing has really proven what we have all thought.
WELL, DARN! Here is a terrific article I saw after writing this post ...and you could read this instead of mine and see what I’m talking about:
WHAT IS WITH LIBERALS? Is this prep for the election? It feels more to me that they’re negative INSIDE, election year or not……….
AND ELECTION MAKES ME THINK “GOV CUOMO”... WHY is he on for SO LONG every morning? Yesterday he said “How stupid are the FEDS, why don’t THEY buy all the ventilators and send them to where we need them, why are the STATES trying to buy them?” (um, Mr. Cuomo, you SHOULD know they’re hard to find right now and companies are gearing up to MAKE THEM…Why aren’t you up on this stuff you find world- alteringly important?? If I know it, you must know it, ADMIT IT! And I’m sorry your brother Chris on CNN tested positive, by the way)
WHAT DO YOU READERS OF GEEEZ THINK ABOUT LIBERALS AND THE NEGATIVITY THAT’S EVEN MORE OBVIOUS DURING THIS VIRUS MESS? WHY ARE THEY SO SO SO ………NEGATIVE???? To me, it’s against human nature!
I’m dedicating today’s post to Patricia, known as The Merry Widow among us longtime bloggers who loved her. One of the strongest Christian Conservatives I’ve ever known, a person who had lots of challenges in her life but never let them get her down. She flew up to AOW’s to help her when Mr. AOW had his stroke, she was just there another few months helping AOW with big house work.. They were extremely dear friends. She was a giving, loving friend who trusted in Jesus above ALL ELSE and encouraged friends all the time. She will be greatly missed. Jesus has her now. I hope she’s got a permanent smile on her face. On her Facebook post, when asking for prayer today because she had awful symptoms which prompted them to get her to the ER, she said to a friend who wished her well “HE is in control, what is the worst that can happen? I get to go Home!” And now she is home. Please pray for her 2 adult children and her many friends.. Thanks.
HERE IS A FASCINATING PIECE BY CANDACE OWENS:
Dear America: Let me show you how your media has been LYING to you about #coronavirus.
Today I woke up to an article that claimed that New York City was facing a “catastrophe” because 450 people had died from the coronavirus since January. They concluded that NYC is suffering from a death every 17 minutes. I thought this was an odd “catastrophe” because (as I was born in NY, and only recently moved from NYC a few years ago)— I vaguely recalled NYC already suffering a hospital shortage epidemic. So I decided to do a bit of research and here is what I discovered.
Foremost, in NYC, Approximately 419 people die every single day, without coronavirus. This is about 153,000 people per a year, or one person every 9 minutes. The suggestion that an extra 5 deaths a day this year has caused a crisis is foolish. But there’s more…
Since 2003, NYC has closed 16 hospitals. They have closed because of socialized medicine. The state cut medicaid reimbursements. In other words— they could no longer afford to support people who were getting treated for free. Below is an article from 2017, which explains the crisis in detail.
Here is my final take on the #coronavirus hysteria:
States that have already been on the brink of various collapses (NY, California, Illinois) are using the virus to extort the federal government for funding to their various pre-existing crises, which are due to their own poor policies.
Please share this far and wide
GOT ANY THOUGHTS?
