Blessings and Lessons


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?

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

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.
