Let’s Play Euchre…I Call Trump!

Well, it’s done now.  Donald Trump is the GOP candidate.  He is the official nominee.  People, like it or not ( I do! ), Donald’s here for the show.  Now, I got an email the other day.  I would like to copy the body below.  Now, I know it’s one of “those” that we normally toss aside.  However, here, perhaps, we should read.  It’s a different perspective that may give some of you the hope you need for the upcoming battle…and, it will be a battle.

THIS NAILS IT ON THE HEAD
A Message For Christians About Donald Trump

I am a Jew turned evangelical Christian. I am also a passionate
supporter of Donald Trump.
I have a message for Christians who don’t like Donald Trump:“YOU’RE
MISSING THE BOAT.”
Christians have Trump all wrong. God sends messages in many forms.
You’re just not listening. God is talking, but you’re eyes and ears
are closed.
Here’s a famous joke about God and how he talks to us.
“A deeply faithful Christian man is stuck on roof of home with massive
flooding up to 2nd floor. Rowboat comes. He says
“No, I’m waiting for God. I’ve prayed and I know he’s coming.”
2ndrowboat. “No, I’m waiting for God.” 3rd rowboat. “No, I’m waiting
for God.”  Water rises. The man drowns. Now he’s meeting God in
heaven.
The religious man says “Where were you God? I prayed. I was faithful.
I asked you to save me. Why would you abandon me?”  God says, “Hey
dummy, I sent you 3 rowboats. Are you blind?”
Did you ever consider Trump is our rowboat?
Maybe God is trying to tell us something important- that now is not
the time for a “nice Christian guy” or a “gentleman” or a typical
Republican powder puff. Maybe now is the time for a natural born
killer, a ruthless fighter, a warrior.
Because right about now we need a miracle, or America is finished.
Maybe the rules of gentleman don’t apply here. Maybe a gentleman and
“all-around nice Christian” would lead us to slaughter.
Or do you want another Mitt Romney, Bob Dole, John McCain, Gerald Ford
or Paul Ryan? Did any of them win? Did they lead the GOP to “the
promised land?” Did they change the direction of America? No, because
if you don’t win, you have no say.
Paul Ryan couldn’t even deliver his own state, Wisconsin!
And as leader of the House, Paul Ryan rolls over to Obama like my dog
rolls over for a scrap of food, or a steak bone. He’s a useful idiot.
Nice, but obedient. I mean Paul Ryan…not my dog. My dog is actually a
pretty good defender and loyal.
Maybe God is knocking on your door so loud, but you’re not listening.
Maybe God understands we need a “war leader” at this moment in time.
Maybe God understands if we don’t win this election, America is dead.
It’s over. The greatest nation in world history will be gone.
Finished. Kaput. Adios.
And with one last breath, maybe what we need to save us at the last
second, is someone different. Someone you haven’t ever experienced
before- because you weren’t raised in rough and tumble New York where
nothing good gets accomplished unless you’re combative, aggressive,
outrageous, on offense at all times, and maybe just a tad arrogant
too.
Someone with a personality you’ve never seen on stage at your church.
Maybe, just maybe, being a nice gentlemanly Christian would not beat
Hillary, and her billion dollars, and her best friends in the media
who will unleash the dogs of hell upon the GOP nominee.
I guess you think God is only nice and gentlemanly.Really? Then you’ve
missed the whole point of the Bible. When necessary God is a pretty
tough guy. When necessary, God strikes with pain, death and
destruction. When necessary, God inflicts vengeance.
Maybe you think God couldn’t possibly be associated with someone like
Trump. Trump is too vicious, rude and crude. When we won WWII, was God
“nice?” Were we gentlemanly when defeating Hitler? Were we gentlemanly
when firebombing Germany? Were we gentlemanly when dropping atomic
bombs on Japan? Is God ever “nice” on the battlefield? Or does he send
us vicious SOB’s like General George S. Patton, so the good guys can
defeat evil?
It’s pretty clear to me God sends unique people to be “war leaders.”
That’s a different role than a pastor or church leader. God
understands that.
Maybe God purposely sent Trump instead of the nice Republican powder
puffs like Paul Ryan, or Mitt Romney, or John Kasich because he wants
us to win.
And maybe it’s time to re-define “nice.” Maybe Mitt Romney and Paul
Ryan aren’t nice at all- because they led us to defeat. And losing
again would mean the end of America. And God can’t allow that.
Maybe Romney and Ryan mean well, but the road to hell is paved with
good intentions.
Or maybe they’re just jealous they had their chance and blew it. Maybe
they’d rather help elect Hillary than allow a Trump victory that would
make them look weak, feckless and incompetent.
I was reading the Bible this morning and I found the perfect verse
that explains the success of Donald Trump…
“Even the youths shall faint and be weary, And the young men shall
utterly fall, But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their
strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run
and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:30-31)
It’s almost like God created this verse for Donald Trump and this
moment in history.
Trump is our energy. More energy than any candidate EVER. He took on
the 16 best candidates in GOP history…all younger than him…all
with better political credentials…and destroyed them with his
energy. You mean that kind of energy in a 70-year old isn’t inspired
by God?
Trump renews our strength. Or does the all-time record turnout and
all-time record votes for a GOP presidential primary candidate not
define “strength?”
With Trump we mount up with wings like eagles. With Trump as our
leader there is nothing we can’t do. Any man that can build
skyscrapers in Manhattan and vanquish 16 presidential opponents, while
spending almost nothing…can lead us to the heights of eagles.
With Trump we run, we are not weary. Just when we get tired of the
fight against Obama, Hillary, big government, big business, big media,
big unions…just when it all seems impossible to overcome the
powerful forces of evil… along comes Trump to re-energize us.
Trump inspires us. Trump gives us hope. Trump gives us confidence in
victory. Trump gives us just a touch of arrogance. Maybe God
understands that’s exactly what we need right at this late stage to
save America.
God is about miracles. We don’t need a “nice guy” or a “gentleman”
right now. It’s the 4th quarter and we’re losing 14-0. We need a
miracle.
So let me repeat my message to Christians:“YOU’RE MISSING THE BOAT.”
I believe Trump is our miracle. I believe Trump is our rowboat.
Except he’s more like a battleship!
No one is saying Trump is perfect. No one is saying Trump is a perfect
conservative. But he is a patriot. He is a warrior. He is a
capitalist. He is the right man, at the right time.
Yes, he’s a bit rude and crude and offensive. But that may make him
the perfect warrior to save America, American exceptionalism,
capitalism and Judeo – Christian values.
The choice should be easy for Christians. It’s Trump…or it’s the end
of the America.

*No, I am not going to say anything more, except – listen to that small voice in your soul that often speaks and we ignore it.  See if it tells you there may be a bit more to the email message than you might have thought.  It helped me.  I needed some strengthening.  I am voting for Trump, but now I feel even better.
Namaste,
Scott

Rough Times Looking Better – Thanks to You!

Finally, I have caught back up, at least, somewhat.  I have changed my hours back to bed around 5am and try to get in 5-7 hours, up a while, then nap, before the evening begins.  Personal/family matters are being handled here and I don’t feel comfortable sharing them just yet, but you all understand:  you do what you gotta do.

I thought, for awhile, that I was going to have to stop blogging for an indeterminate amount of time.  Turns out, I need you all! 🙂  You are a wonderful sounding board as well as some good “go to” advice in times of need.  I love you all.

So, in celebration, I will tell you a story to get your smile on today.  I was walking across a parking lot last night and there were three people, two women and one man, standing behind a vehicle with the back open.  They were discussing and I could not help but overhear enough to make me smile.

One of the women was talking loudly and stuck both her middle fingers up in the air, gesturing to whomever she was telling the story about.  I heard, “and this is what I did to her.”  Making it kinda obvious what she thought for whatever reason.

Then, as I passed by, she continued her story with, “…if you don’t have Jesus in your life by now…”.  I nearly cracked up right there.  Most of you know that I don’t ascribe to organized religion.  This, apparent, two-faced statement had me in the grips of giggle fits.  I could not see how someone who is, apparently, religious and talks to others about Jesus could be giving the finger (both of them) to someone for much of anything.

Doesn’t bother me, mind you.  I consider myself very spiritual and have a wonderful rapport with God and the universe.  I still could see myself flipping someone off if I was angry.  I could see me getting in someone’s face about something if I thought it was important enough.  And we won’t even go toward my feelings and opinions on sex!  However, I do doubt I would be flipping someone off and then start talking to them about their relationship with God.  Just can’t see it.  Could happen, but just.  can’t.  see.  it.

I hope that story does two things:  1) makes you smile  2) makes you take a look at your own relationship with God.

My bit for the morning.

Namaste,

God and Manifestation are both Wonderful!!!

Of course, I know that God handles manifestation.  I simply believe He gives us rules to follow in order to take full advantage of our humanness.  Manifestation is a way in which God can bring into our lives those things we ask for and concentrate on.  That’s my story for tonight.

This is actually Friday early morning.  It’s about 1:45am.  I was heading to bed and decided to get the mail in case the library had put any books in my collection box and it decided to rain (as it has for weeks).  I pulled out the mail and was disappointed to find two extra doctor bills from my hip surgery in April.  The hospital has been going over my financial statements to see if I qualify for a reduction in the nearly $1200 bill.  I don’t mind paying it.  It has been a true Godsend to have the ability to walk and bend again.  My other hip will be scheduled for next April.

Anyway, the other two bills amounted to about $31.00.  I will pay them.  I just know those types of bills will continue coming for months…a bit here and there.  So, I decided to perk up and just be happy I could pay them…on time even!  Then, I got to the last bill – a letter, actually, from the hospital, St Vincent’s in Anderson.  The letter said (I tried not to read ahead and ruin anything) they were happy that because of my financial status and the generous donations from others and patients who could really afford to pay, they were able to FORGIVE MY ENTIRE BILL!  I almost cried.  I had hoped dearly for a 20% reduction.  This brought all my finances back into order.  I only had to pay the little bills and the surgeon who was 50% paid off now.

I just had to pass this on as I had manifested $100 dollars this month and already received that, so this was on top of it all.  I always leave myself open to more abundance.  Bless all the people who made it possible.

And, Mollie, here is another wonderful example of manifesting and letting it go to the universe.

Namaste,

Here It Is: Easter Again

Source: The Huffington Post Reuse License listed in search Click on Pic for page

I used the above picture for the sole reason that when I typed the term “Easter Celebraton” (no quotes) into Google, it was one of the choices and I could find no good reason.  🙂

As I sit here writing this, I find myself wondering that it is a big Christian holiday:  Easter.  Easter is upon us and all day there has been celebrating and church, meals, and candy.  Those go together in my head because of my Christian upbringing, but as I sit here now and think about it, the whole Easter Bunny, church, Salvation, Resurrection, and celebration ideas just don’t fit very well.  Children pay more attention to Christmas and Easter because of gifts.  That may be the big draw to those two holidays.  I am not downing anyone who celebrates it at all.  I think celebrating is good for the body, mind, and soul.  I am simply pointing out something I noticed.  You can do with that as you will.

I used to be a big celebrator of Easter.  Easter Bunny in the morning, followed by church.  In my early years, it was Church at dawn, then Bunny, then church afterwards, followed by the noon meal.  This was a big feast in which all of my immediate family as well as my Dad’s family got together and celebrated.

We didn’t do that this year.  My family – parents, sibling, children, great niece, and so forth got together, ate, then did various things (such as nap) before leaving to go home around supper time.  It was enjoyable, but nothing like it used to be.

I have become non-religious in the last few years.  Not atheist, by any means, simply not a follower of Christianity or any other organized religion.  I don’t miss it.  My own closeness to God occurs anyway, much to the disbelief of many who feels that a non-churchgoer cannot have much faith.  I see this as a very limited perspective.

Be that as it may, I decided I should attempt to write something on this holiday.  Not certain exactly how I have done, but here it is.

Namaste,

Scott
