• Faith, Fear, Freedom

    And just like that……all the children became home schooled….nobody cared about truancy…nobody was concerned about socialization…nobody worried about attendance…nobody noticed if they were barefoot….what used to be important… suddenly wasn’t.

     

    It always amazes me when people say they don’t believe in God because they can’t see Him.  Yet we can’t see germs either and people do not question the reality of the disease.

    We don’t want anyone to get sick from this.  However, this is a political virus as well as a physical virus.  The effects of the physical virus will be over before we recover from the Socialism and the sudden lurch forward of big government.  This Bakersfield doctors’ video explains why this overreaction is doing more harm than good.  You can watch it here: 

  • Had Enough Yet?

    This is a picture from the rally at the Missouri Capitol this week.  We have some serious Constitutional issues at stake.  

     

    Have you had enough of this quarantine yet?  I have to admit, I am enjoying a reason to slow my life down and reconnect with my kids, my kitchen and my piano.  I’m also enjoying the lower gas prices and the ability to drive on our roads with much less traffic!  It’s been great having my son home from school.  What a relief to not have to wake up at 6:00 every morning!  We’re having a wonderful time.  It’s been so pleasurable, I am starting to wonder if we will be disappointed when we have to go back to work!

    Yet, as much as I am enjoying my badly needed vacation, we must acknowledge that there are many injustices happening every day.  As the numbers are being tallied, the reports show that the virus was not nearly as bad as predicted.  While we are finding out the worst is already past, local governments are way behind the curve in implementing new, more aggressive and more hostile measures.  Many have gone “hog wild” with a blatant disregard for human rights.  Some are shutting down parks, where there is no problem and arresting innocent people for merely being outside!  It appears the goal has changed to augment human suffering and cause the greatest harm possible.

  • Government Canceling Church

    This is the yard sign my parents have in their front yard.  If you’re not familiar with it, please look it up, but here’s a small excerpt:  “This I declare, that he alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I am trusting him. 3 For he rescues you from every trap and protects you from the fatal plague.”

     

    Are you depressed with this shut down?  When is it enough?  What has happened to us?

    I never thought I’d see the day when we would cancel church so easily.  In some states there are police officers taking down license plate numbers if they see cars at a church.  In other states, they’re trying to fine people.  Yet, they are still allowing people to shop at Lowes, Home Depot, Walmart, Target, Costco and grocery stores.

    Where are all the people who used to scream, “Separation of Church and State!”

  • Living in the Days of Lot

    As this coronavirus continues, my hope is that we will emerge on the other side stronger and braver and more godly than ever before.  Some people are asking if we were ripe for God’s judgement.   With how we’re acting, how can we not expect His judgement?  Some parts are so bad, we should cringe.

    This is a political virus. Our political immune system is broken down. We are now vulnerable to this virus because we have an underlying condition. We lost our fear of God. We’ve lost our fear of big government (a.k.a. Socialiam). We’ve got broken families and broken churches. Without our political antibodies, we’re vulnerable to anything that comes along. 

  • Coronavirus

    No, she is not shooting him with a gun.  She’s shooting him with a thermometer!  People cannot enter the St. Louis City Hall unless they can prove they have no fever.  I’m not as worried about the Coronavirus as I am worried about the government ruining my life and my business.  While some people are busy at the stores buying up all the toilet paper, our Congress was busy trying to pass new laws and our Governors were trying to declare emergencies in our states.  Our schools and most restaurants and churches are closed.

    When our Country was attacked on 9/11, the government spent huge sums of taxpayer dollars to permanently change our way of life, including the TSA, which offers mandatory harassment of all the passengers before they can ride airplanes.  Are the “Big Government” proponents using this to take away more of our freedoms?

  • Turbans and Hijabs in the Military

    In the news this week, we now have this going on in our military:

    The United States Air Force updated its official dress code policy this month, in observance of religious practices, to allow military personnel to wear turbans or hijabs as a part of the uniform…. In addition to religious apparel, members also can request permission to have unshorn beards and unshorn hair. If the length of the beard exceeds 2 inches, it must be “rolled and or tied” to meet the new standards.”

    On the surface it appears that the management is trying to be nice to everybody, but where is our discipline? This “political correctness” is going to kill us.

    The military shows NO TOLERANCE when it comes to forcing our military to be injected with vacinations.  Even if people have bad reactions, they have to throw their careers in the trash if they refuse even the flu vaccine!  Take the jab or you will be discharged!  No options!

    As a military mom, this makes me angry.  When someone puts on the uniform, it is supposed to mean loyalty to the Country first.

  • Nancy Pelosi

    From our house to yours, we hope you have a blessed Christmas Season!

    During this time, it’s easy to become distracted with all the negativity happening in our Country.  But these nasty moments in Washington, DC allow us a great opportunity to share the truth with those who are willing to learn. 

  • What Happened To Our Country?

    This is a picture of the people acting up at the Galleria in St. Louis last Saturday.  So sad that they need to cause a ruckus, but unless our Country gets more godly, we may be in for more of the same.

    These are not “protesters”. They are rioters.

    If they were interested in justice, they would be at the courthouse.  If they had any honor or credibility, they would not be destroying private property.

    These people are filled with hate against God and man. I hope they are required to pay back everything they destroyed, plus a penalty, or else they will do it again.

  • Chick-fil-A

    The left is having a heyday criticizing all conservative organizations with hopes to change our culture.  Using bully tactics, its goal is to bring harm to not only Chick-fil-A, but after being successful, moving on to other targets.  No church, individual or philanthropic organization is safe.

    Chick-fil-A was more about the environment, Christian music and polite staff than only the food.  Many people supported it for larger reasons.  When presented with a choice, many good, family-oriented people wanted to support Chick-fil-A as a statement of voting with their pocketbooks.

    Before you vow to never go to Chick-fil-A again over its revised donation strategy, I have some good news that should help us “cool our jets”.

  • The Heart of a Missionary

    This is a picture of me, my husband and Ric and Cathy Nelson.  They are missionaries.   Everybody is a missionary of some sort.  It all comes down to what we focus on as our mission in life.

    It’s easy to get so wrapped up in all the nonsense happening in our National Government that we forget there are people on their way to hell….but maybe I’m repeating the same thing!  As much as we would like to take a break from the political stuff, most issues are still political!

    So, if you’re watching the news this week and thinking about how bad it is out there, give yourself a break and listen to our show to hear about the good things that are happening in the world around us.
