C’mon! Are You Kidding Me?

What is going on in this world of ours?

A few days ago a radio commentator talked about a group of about six hundred people that is declaring the earth is flat, not round; no ifs ands or buts! (Are we the only square planet in the universe?)

Someone is still trying to build walls instead of knocking them down.

A leader who ran a campaign on transparency, among other sunshiny things, is now embroiled in an alleged cover-up.

People are demonstrating in the streets of many parts of the world in some protest or other, while taking sticks and bricks to properties of others, and setting cars on fire.

Thieves are smashing retail windows at 3:00 a.m. and helping themselves to cash and valuables belonging to hard working merchants.

A young woman was videoed throwing a chair from a high rise condo balcony onto a busy street below.

My driveway was no sooner cleared of snow when along came a plow and dumped a load of the white stuff at the bottom of it.

C’mon! Are you kidding me?

The good news is a smaller plow came along and cleared it away.

Did you have a happy Valentine’s day, yesterday?





Independence Day

Just as we here in Canada celebrated our July 1st Canada Day, so our neighbors to the south in the USA are celebrating this day, July 4th, their Independence Day.

Happy Fourth of July to my American friends, relatives, and fellow bloggers. Be blessed.

Happy Earth Day

As we acknowledge Earth Day and do our best to tend to our little corner of the world, let us remember this psalm of David:

Psalm 24:1NIV: The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it;

Happy Sunday

Pay It Forward

Have you ever wondered what we can do to make the world a better place? With all the shenanigans going on all over the planet, we feel so helpless and inadequate in whatever we try to do to make a small difference.

It’s been said over and over again that the way to eradicate violence and hatred of any kind is to start in our own country, city, state, province, neighborhood, community, family, inner circle, church…wherever…and do whatever it takes to sow peace in place of dissension.

It’s not always an easy thing to do but the smallest step in the right direction may be what it takes to change the direction our world seems to be headed in.

As a concerned citizen of Planet Earth, I urge one and all to take every blessing we have received in a lifetime…every kindness, forgiveness, helping hand, gift of love…every good thing, (nothing bad), and offer it up as our contribution to a better world…in other words, pay it forward.


God’s Prayer to Us

Have you ever thought of a prayer roll reversal? What if God sent a prayer to us? Yesterday, I wondered what God would say to us in a prayer. Here’s what I came up with:

My Earthly People

I have been watching your troubled world for quite some time now and pray that you would take these few suggestions as to how you might turn things around.

Your environment is in big trouble. It is going to take more than demonstrations to set it right. It is going to take all world leaders, not just a few, to acknowledge the problem and make intelligent decisions. It is also going to take the world population as a whole to do their part. I pray that all of you will take the necessary steps to save your planet.

Your love for one another is sadly lacking. This is obvious from the wars, terrorism, senseless killings, starvation and disease that plague your world. People who love each other do not tolerate this behavior, and, once again, would make intelligent decisions to rectify these situations. I pray that you would do all in your power (and mine) to recognize and eradicate such behavior.

Your daily lives are sadly lacking in love and respect, not only for each other, but for yourselves. You have been taught love from the moment of birth and somewhere along life’s path have either abandoned, forgotten, or ignored this love…not in all cases, but in many. Husbands and wives break their vows, parents pit children against one another, children come to believe that life is all about them, governments forget that they are elected for the betterment of the people, not the detriment.

You are my people and I want only the very best for you. I gave you free will, hoping you would use it wisely. Some of you have willingly and lovingly accepted me; others have deliberately denied my very existence.

It is my prayer that you will open your minds and hearts, and use your intelligence as intended.

You are my children and I love you dearly. Please hear my prayer.

Your Heavenly Father.
