Black Lives Matter

It’s true.  They do matter.  Of course they matter.  They matter just as much as any other human life. George Floyd should not have died.  He was killed by a Minneapolis police officer’s excessive use of force.  It’s awful.  The officer(s) should face prosecution for how they handled the whole situation and Mr. Floyd’s death.  There are other instances across the country where unarmed black … Continue reading Black Lives Matter

Lord, Protect Me

From those with opinions I didn’t ask for. Show me how to love like You and still ignore. From those who create turmoil between the lines. And give me patience when I don’t see the signs. From the pressure of expectations created by anyone but You. I don’t want it easy, but I only want to do what You want me to. From my mirror … Continue reading Lord, Protect Me

The Free American

Can a governing authority create a law that contradicts the Constitution? The 1st Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America says this: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government … Continue reading The Free American

A Tough Choice

Here you are, Democrats.  Your final two choices are clear.  A 78 year old self proclaimed socialist and a 77 year old lifelong politician that can’t finish a sentence.   Bernie Sanders Bernie’s agenda sounds like a 7 year old’s response when you ask them what they would do to make the world a better place.  “Free Healthcare” “Free College” “Free Childcare” Yeah, all of that … Continue reading A Tough Choice

A Witness With Wings – Part 2

In all of my existence, the last three “days” have been the most turbulent.  The darkness that covered the world has sustained.  I have seen God angry and I have seen Him sad.  God is consistent, but He is not emotionless.  He has just witnessed the people He created for His glory murder His Son.  But today, His demeanor changed, and He gave me a … Continue reading A Witness With Wings – Part 2

A Centurion’s Story – Part 1

Something about this bothers me.  I had governed over many crucifixions, but never had I seen a crowd overrule Pontius Pilate like this one did.  And for what reason?  Normally agents of Rome never yield to their subjects, especially Pilate.  I wish he had not given me this order.  Then he washed his hands of it.  I wish I could wash MY hands of this, … Continue reading A Centurion’s Story – Part 1

“Google, Define Circumstantial”

“Pointing indirectly toward someone’s guilt but not conclusively proving it.” For weeks, Democrats built an impeachment case against President Trump.  First, it was quid pro quo, then bribery.  No one had the smoking gun, a tape recording or a transcript saying “this for that”.  The House Intelligence Committee interviewed any Trump hater in government still breathing and the closest they could get to evidence of … Continue reading “Google, Define Circumstantial”

Quid Pro Quo

“Quid pro quo is a Latin phrase used in English to mean an exchange of goods or services, in which one transfer is contingent upon the other; “a favor for a favor”. Phrases with similar meanings include: “give and take”, “tit for tat”, “you scratch my back, and I’ll scratch yours”, and “one hand washes the other”.” (Wikipedia, 2020) It’s likely a phrase you’ve heard … Continue reading Quid Pro Quo
