Wise Words….

THIS WAS EMAILED TO ME BY MAL AND IT REMINDS US OF WHAT’S IMPORTANT EVEN AS WE COPE WITH THE NIGHTMARE THAT THE LEFT IS CAUSING AMERICA…AND US , PARTICULARLY ON THIS DAY IN WASHINGTON:

Barely the day started and… it’s already six in the evening.

Barely arrived on Monday and it’s already Friday.

… and the month is already over…. and the year is almost over.

… and already 40, 50 or 60 years of our lives have passed.

… and we realize that we lost our parents, friends.

and we realize it’s too late to go back…

So… Let’s try, despite everything, to enjoy the remaining time…

Let’s keep looking for activities that we like…

Let’s put some color in our grey…

Let’s smile at the little things in life that put balm in our hearts.

And despite everything, we must continue to enjoy with serenity this time we have left. Let’s try to eliminate the afters…

I’m doing it after…I’ll say after…I’ll think about it after…We leave everything for later like ′′ after ′′ is ours.

Because what we don’t understand is that:

Afterwards, the coffee gets cold…

afterwards, priorities change…

Afterwards, the charm is broken…

afterwards, health passes…

Afterwards, the kids grow up…

Afterwards parents get old…

Afterwards, promises are forgotten…

afterwards, the day becomes the night…

afterwards life ends…

And then it’s often too late….

So… Let’s leave nothing for later…

Because still waiting see you later, we can lose the best moments,

the best experiences,b best friends, the best family…

The day is today… The moment is now…

AND THERE’S THIS, which I’m not sure I agree with but it’s clever:

 

Z:  LET’S LIVE IT WITH ALL WE’VE GOT……………

    Is it possible to stop time? The simple answer is, “Yes, it is possible to stop time. All you need to do is travel at light speed.” . We know that an object, or a light beam’s, speed measures the distance traversed over time. Is it possible to stop the hoards awaiting their turn at the border turnstile…we already know the answer.
    We are told “America United” and “Our Determined Democracy: Forging a More Perfect Union”—a reference to the Preamble to the United States Constitution—will serve as the inaugural themes. A more perfect union definition: send whitey back to wherever the hell he came from, whitey who stole the continent from the black man, whitey who stole his culture. Meanwhile the man who ultimately destroyed the black family, LBJ, is hailed as a hero in the black bizzaro world

    If we could stop time and then go backwards in time nothing would or could be changed.
    Proverb. The more things change, the more they stay the same. Turbulent changes do not affect reality on a deeper level other than to cement the status quo so.

    Isaiah 22:13; Proverbs 23:35
    and behold, joy and gladness,
    killing oxen and slaughtering sheep,
    eating flesh and drinking wine.
    Let us eat and drink,
    for tomorrow we die.”

    KID…I didn’t expect to cry when I put FOX on and saw the Trumps leave the White House into the helicopter but I DID. Melania’s never looked so beautiful and I’m not sure I’ve ever seen her smile so big, by the way!!! (can’t blame her)
    Yes, it’s always been up to us…..it’ll just be harder now with a president like Biden…in my opinion.

    ED…that is QUITE a story, isn’t it. And a good reminder.

    PETER!…Great stuff there…THANK YOU! We must LIVE FOR TODAY….great reminder….and thanks for the video!
    By the way, talk about music; I heard yesterday that BIG LIB LADY GAGA who’s “Such a good friend of Biden’s!” (WHAT?!!) has a BIG TRUMP SUPPORTING FATHER! 🙂

    EVERYBODY: If safety was SO important and if such a big safety threat was worried about (only yesterday we suddenly heard no threats have been picked up by the FBI!!!???WHAT?), why not move the inauguration inside and make it more virtual?

    THERE IT GOES…the helicopter has just taken off…..and we’re all less safe as of noon ET today;
    Muslim travel ban lifts.
    Illegals with disease will probably now come in.
    We’ll be energy dependent again.
    And this president could drive our country to bankruptcy with Sanders on the Budget….

    Meanwhile, Biden will be swearing to protect America. Oh, the irony.

    MEANWHILE, there’s talk about Trump starting a NEW PARTY…”THE VICTORY PARTY” or “THE PATRIOT PARTY” are bandied about names……..

    I have always been dead set AGAINST another party because I knew if Republicans did that, we’d never win again; it’d be half the country voting for Dems and 1/4 voting for Republicans and the other 1/4 voting for WHATEVER disenchanted Republicans came up with…

    TODAY? if 75 million did vote for Trump’s party (questionable), and Dems who had awakened to the nightmare that will be Biden………….maybe now IS the time??

    WHEN DID ‘AMERICA FIRST’ BECOME WRONG? Yet Biden is working against it……..some president.

    MAL didn’t write this but I sure appreciated his sending it and just had to share it.

    PETER: I get the impression Biden’s NO WAY in control; he’s their READER now……….I think his Press Secretary is IN CHARGE, Jen Psaki…I believe she answers to the Obama/Valerie Jarrett/HRC beast masters…. The way Psaki interviews is hilarious….she speaks of Biden as if he’s the puppet…

    I WATCHED TRUMP LEAVE and felt almost desperate…….SO less safe. N Korea didn’t have the guts to saber rattle as they’re now doing again, our economy won’t come back like it would have under Trump. And, apparently, Biden thinks just throwing trillions at every problem is governing well. WOW.
    So then I saw the Clintons, the Bushes, Obamas, etc…arriving……….hard to see.

    SO GLAD TRUMP IS NOT THERE and Biden should be, too, as Trump’s presence would have made Biden invisible….the media’d be all over their hate again…..not the inauguration.
    I”m just hoping the news we hear about those living around Mara Lago demanding Trump not live there shut up ………..how nasty can people BE?

    This is all about RACE, not BEST MAN OR WOMAN………this is ALL OBAMA, BOTH OF THEM….And Kamala will become THEIR puppet.

    I heard this morning Biden will speak about RESTORING THE SOUL OF AMERICA……..and first, I thought how disgustingly nasty that is, considering Trump did nothing to destroy that, it’s the hate for him which did………and then I thought YA, AND RIPPING THE GUTS OUT OF AMERICA AT THE SAME TIME.

    Wait till the Biden voters who worked on the pipeline have no income anymore. And wait till the Native Americans he constantly sucks up to realize that pipeline money they got has stopped.

    So wise, Mal. I listened to Dawson Church speak recently on the importance of positive thinking and how your brain creates a material reality.

    Our brains are hard-wired to pay attention to potential threats. Failing to notice a threat can get you killed, whereas there’s no immediate life-saving reward for failing to notice the good stuff. Most of us need to train our brain to notice the positive, and to feel gratitude. “You really have to be deliberate in your efforts to redirect your attention and not have … it hijacked by all the bad stuff out there.”

    Yup…pipeline? GONE. WALL? STOP BUILDING TODAY! FUNDING TO women’s HEALTH (abortion, of course….resuming funding to Planned Parenthood)….HALTING student loan payments for a period of time…….STOPPING the ban on travel from Muslim Countries……Isn’t that just GREAT? NO WONDER Trump had no wars and no terror attacks! But…no….Biden loves others more than America and I believe he’s not even aware of that…too dumb………MANY things on his agenda to sign today…….you know, those executive orders his Left went wild over when Trump did them? He’s doing them BIG TIME.

    WHY DOES AMERICA FINANCE INTERNATIONAL ABORTIONS, by the way? THIS is something I could never figure out. Biden’s for that, too.

    As I mentioned earlier here in Northern NJ the price at the pipe is up about .50 over the last month without the coming pipeline shutdown. With consumer credit as free as drinking water-oops that’s not right-with gasoline at the pump almost as expensive as bottled water when do the great unwashed take notice? My guess is never. For the last several generations raised on bottled water and the coming generations raised on $7.00 gas at the pump where’s the issue? Biden’s claim to fame is having rid the nation of Trump…period.

    This past Sunday I referred three travel basketball games (replete with mask) with my partner Jeff. Who us Jeff? A 55 year old man who came down with COVID in mid March. After hospitalization he went to Kessler Institute for rehab. He could barely move a muscle, couldn’t eat (IV feeding) couldn’t talk -had to relearn. Bottom line 10 months later (without a vaccine) you would never know what he went through unless he told you. But as we know we will all be better off once our health care system is completely broken down and rebuilt mirroring any socialist system. As a people we will need to toughen up if we’re to wait six months to a year for open heart surgery,

    A beautiful and romantic sentiment but we are fallen people living in a fallen world fraught with evil, as the events of the past several months have demonstrated. It’s a western perspective. Some lives have little room for seeking out relationship and beauty and enjoyment because basic needs aren’t even met and they wonder if, and how, they will have food each day, and provide for their children. Some start out in life burdened and impeded by consequences of their parent’s choices, mental illness and physical disabilities that don’t leave a lot of time to gaze at sunsets. but old Maslow’s hierarchy is the reality. What people need is a Redeemer. Mankind’s quest for bringing Utopia has been a dismal failure throughout all history. I “get” the sentiment behind the writer’s words, but Maslow’s hierarchy is just a reality.
