I know I have not been posting much of late and offer my apologies. I hope to post more soon Those who would like to keep up on what I am reading/watching may "like" the Call Me Mom page on Facebook. And the show is still once/week and available on the sidebar.
Other than just the cares of life, the burden of prayer for our military grows as the threats facing our nation grow ever more daunting and their numbers grow ever smaller. The communists in power in this nation have done their work well in crippling our ability to defend ourselves as you can see from this article: "Pentagon Official: The Facts Are In, And Obama's Policy Is a Direct Danger To The United States" And, the penchant for indulging in social experimentation on our military and then the added indignity of sending them pink slips while they are still deployed in combat areas, one could hardly blame them for thinking ill of us. This must surely have been intended to create a schism between them and their fellow citizens, who by our perceived inaction, have allowed them to be so shabbily used.
In such a time as this, it seems like even a child could see that we need to be strengthening our military, not weakening our defenses. The barbaric death cult that is islam is on the rise again, China and Russia grow ever more belligerent in the face of our perceived weakness, we are being invaded across our Southern border, and the Congress sits idly by while the person sitting in the office of the POTUS becomes ever more tyrannical.
Usama Dakdok and other Christian patriots, myself included, have noted that islam may well be a challenge from the Lord for Christians. They have been sent here to be evangelized. If we fail to convert them, the punishment for that failure is self evident in the Islamic takeover of our nation.
That said, the communists have been working towards the destruction of this nation for well over 100 years. They ignore the long history of their movement which indicates to a sensible person that it is fundamentally flawed and so it is. The premise upon which communism is based is that the nature of mankind is basically good. They believe with a religious fervor that if all of a person's basic needs are met, that person will automatically become happy and productive. The basic nature of mankind is not good, as we can clearly see from a cursory examination of history, but denial kills and so this delusional pipe dream continues and thinks nothing of killing all who may appear to oppose it.
While true Americans, those with their wits about them can see the train coming, it will take a concerted and organized effort by trained people to get this nation off the tracks in time and that effort will almost certainly fall upon the shoulders of our military - active and retired - little though we deserve them. So I pray for them always and hope that my fellow Americans do as well, while we prepare as best we can for that effort when it comes.
"But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart." ~ 1 Samuel 16:7
