Blessings and Lessons

Hello!

I suppose I should say “Welcome Back!”

Or you should say that to me?

August of 2018 was my last post to Sharing God’s Story. Because I’ve been dealing with mental/emotional/spiritual stuff  – kicked off by that hernia-repair catastrophe in November 2017.

It’s taken a while, but I think I’m getting back on track. And so, I had an idea about what I could do.

Kinda start over.

Well, start a new blog, for instance. A blog about taking 11 years of journals and shaping the Blessings and Lessons they contain into something that you, dear reader, might be interested in and could actually benefit from.

I say I’ve been in “recovery” from a lot of hurts, habits, and hangups, and I wrote daily about the wonderful things I was learning. Another way you could describe it is ‘The blessings and lessons of discovering the real me and the purpose I have here.’

So I intend to write a book containing all the gems of wisdom documented in those 18 diaries, and I’m going to blog about the whole process! (A book and a blog about writing the book!)

This is my commitment to you. And I hope you will feel free to hold me accountable to this goal.

Now that I’ve started, I feel great anticipation in moving on to the next step!

I originally posted this on Facebook:

So, I’m just speculating here – I seem to have nothing but time in my present circumstances…

See first my earlier post about these candidates being the most reviled, un-respected, even unacceptably hated nominees in history. “I’ll move if that one gets elected.”)
What we have here is a choice between a blatantly foot-in-mouth, arguably sociopathic narcissist, and a demonstrably criminal career politician. How we even ended up with these as the options is suspect. 
So, let’s just hypothesize. The one “unfit to hold office” wins, thereby bringing about a storm of protest- dare I say to the point of widespread civil unrest (and we’ve already seen how those campaign events easily tend to violence). 
Or, the unacceptably criminal, “royal family”, constitution-by-passing, “hater of America” wins, thereby producing mass demonstrations of open-carry, stirred-up-against-status-quo-and-immigrants-and-the-over-entitled militia (aka widespread civil unrest.)
Now, I ask you, what are the powers-that-be- um what is the power that be – supposed to do? What if all three are in cahoots?
Let me ask another question:
Have you ever played Hearts, and at some point in the hand realized that someone is unstoppably about to shoot the moon?

Or
Did you see the Star Wars saga, episodes 1-3?

Or
Do you know the history of Germany in the early 1930s? 

Now tell me how it could *never* happen in this nowadays-not-so-great nation; how these conspiracy concerns are not in the slightest *believable*. Tell me how it voids the prophecies in God’s Word. 
And, by all means, tell us all how such a thing can be prevented.
