Warriors vs Parasites

′′ They asked the founder of Dubai * Sheikh Rashid * about the future of his country, and he replied: ‘ My grandfather was riding a camel, my father was riding a camel, I was riding a Mercedes, my son was riding a Land Rover and mine grandson is going to ride Land Rover, but my great grandson will have to ride a camel again… ′′

Why is that?

′′ Tough times create strong men, strong men create easy times. Easy times create weak men, weak men create hard times. ′′

Many will not understand, but you have to create warriors, not parasites… ′′

Same thing you give everything free to your son who stays asleep all day.
You’re creating a loser inside the house

Every Lie Will Be Revealed

What did our nation write when our Founding Fathers put ink to paper with words inspired by Almighty God?

The Declaration of Independence.

The United States Constitution.

The Bill of Rights.

Are we smarter now than our Founding Fathers were then?

In my opinion, NO.

Do we need leaders now who are inspired by Almighty God as we had then?

In my opinion, YES.

Is it time for our nation to return now to the principles upon which our nation was founded then?

In my opinion, YES.

God bestowed upon We The People the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Government cannot take away from us what it did not give us.

Government cannot take away, alter, limit, or deny in any manner the rights bestowed by God.

ALL the power in America belongs to We The People.

We were granted that power by God.

Never forget these TRUTHS.

Can you even begin to calculate the number of our fellow American citizens who participated in a scheme to deny We The People our right to an honest vote to elect our President and other federal, state, and local officials?

Such actions are treasonous. The number of traitors is staggering. Do these people really believe they will ALL escape accountability for their wrongdoing?

If they believe that God is real, how do they sleep at night? Or are they Godless?

In the days to come, many people need to search their souls in order to step forward with TRUTH in hopes of saving their souls.

Every lie will be revealed.

Repurpose Vintage Jewelry

We all have tired, old jewelry that we keep in a drawer somewhere, right? This year, I decided to use some of my discarded earrings and bangles, along with my collection of antique buttons, and I turned them into vintage Christmas tree ornaments.

All you need is a glue gun with plenty of glue sticks, your trinkets and baubles, and your imagination! Get together with friends and family, have them bring their used costume jewelry and exchange some of yours with some of theirs. It’s a great way to get together and enjoy your holidays while you make some very personal ornaments for your tree. Best of all, you will create some new memories with your loved ones too!

OUR YESTERDAYS

Our yesterdays become today’s poetry

What mis-guided steps we took in earlier days

Become the compass to guide or mis-guide us through life’s tempests in later years

Our flood of tears that overwhelmed us as babes

Water and keep fertile our heart’s soil in our golden years

Our early attempts at art:

Our stick figures we clumsily drew and our finger paintings

Become the force behind master strokes

On the masterpiece we paint of our whole life

The notes we failed to carry when we were tone deaf

Become the notes angelic beings carry to and fro

Up and down Jacob’s ladder

Aligning the celestial harmonies

Between our heavenly residence and our earthly abode

The multitude of our unanswered questions

We asked while at our parent’s knees

Become our song’s lyrics

The stuff of our novels , stories and poems

We are greater than the sum of earth’s square footage

We are greater than the power of all rulers, past and present combined

Our greatness emanates from the Divine!

BITTER SWEET

We all drink from a certain cup
Bitter or sweet,
We take our daily libations from life’s fountain
A drink from a bitter cup has to be chased by a sip from the sweet one
or how would we make it?

Some choose bitter some choose sweet
Then there are those of us who figured long ago both are essential,
you can’t have bitter without the sweet
you can’t have sweet without the bitter

A babe craves sweet as it can’t handle bitter
The mature turn bitter from having swallowed the delusions that come with too much sweet
Too much sweet rots you from the inside out
So does too much bitter

Some drink their cups of shattered scraps as if that’s all there is
A wilder mind accepts that bitter and sweet cups are the stuff of life’s elixir
The bitter enhances the sweet and the sweet softens the bitter
You weren’t meant to drown in your bitter gall
Nor were you meant to be pacified by all that is sweet
The bitter tames your soul, makes it pliable
The sweet enhances all that is good in you
