Dogs

April 8th, 2017 . by Cary

As long time readers know, we have dogs. None of the original pack are left, but we have Pack 2.0, plus various fosters at different times.

None of the dogs we have ever been blessed to share our life with understood the concept of sleeping in on a Saturday morning.

Enough

February 15th, 2017 . by Cary

A few days ago, I asked for prayers for a decision to be made, for God’s leading.

Lead me he did.

I leave you with this prayer:

I pray that you have enough:
– of The Son to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the days may appear
– rain to help you appreciate The Son even more
– happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting
– pain so that even the smallest of joys in your life may appear bigger
– gain to satisfy your needs
– loss to appreciate all that you are blessed with
– hellos to get through the final good bye.

Wash, Rinse, Repeat

February 15th, 2017 . by Cary

Up to 1774: this country faced a dependency on government largess for almost every need. The liberties of the people residing in this land were restricted and the government operated outside the rule of law, protecting and rewarding those who bought or coerced the rulers into satisfying their demands. The rulers acted as though they cared about the people, but in reality were out of touch with the day-to-day needs and actions of the general population, relying on their well-placed and well-to-do friends for information on what the people were actually doing.

1776: Independence was declared, constitutional government through a representative republic formed, freedom fought for and won from the ruling elites.

2016: this country faced a dependency on government largess for almost every need. The liberties enumerated in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights and all the Amendments were being restricted and the government was operating outside the rule of law, protecting and rewarding those who bought or coerced the rulers into satisfying their demands. The rulers acted as though they cared about the people, but in reality were out of touch with the day-to-day needs and actions of the general population, relying on their well-placed and well-to-do friends for information on what the people were actually doing.

Wash, Rinse, Repeat.

Like Sand Through An Hourglass

February 14th, 2017 . by Cary

… or the steady drip of water on a stone, eventually all the little things do add up. Sometimes, they add up faster than other times. Lesson learned – stay away from the source of the sand. Or the drips.

Asking for prayer today.

Yes, I will update you later.

The Angry Man

February 13th, 2017 . by Cary

It’s been a while since I’ve been able to actually write a political post that hasn’t raised my blood pressure and caused me to have very un-Christian thoughts about the administration. Things have changed. I’m still watching, but with more interest and willingness to get involved again.

Fred posted this over at Texas Fred’s and I think you should read it – either to understand how we got Trump, or to understand why we got Trump:

The Angry Man is difficult to stereotype. He comes from all economic backgrounds, from dirt-poor to filthy rich. He represents all geographic areas in America, from sophisticated urbanite to rural redneck, Deep South to Yankee North, Left Coast to Eastern Seaboard.

No, Fred didn’t write it, but he got it from an old friend of his. From where I sit, it’s describing me to a “T”.
