In honor of my hometown of Annapolis, Maryland
The effervescence of ships lies waiting as dawn’s early light tells the story. The masts are still sleeping, and flags unfurl in dead silence. God’s grace patiently calls this place home. A quiet, tiny town bellows the names of victims as the unexpected has turned into reality. How many more lives must suffer as the story unfolds? Flags at half-mast fly in honor of the fallen.
On this day, may I ask, too, that we honor our innocent, fallen friends (not those in uniform on Taylor Avenue) but rather the ones greeted each morning on their way to work at the Capital-Gazette Newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland. It’s my hometown too. God bless their legacies!
In the seventies, we saw the rise and fall of other types of socialism. Now it’s brought to life again as statues, representing the love of this country, crumble to the ground. Even God’s Ten Commandments are destroyed – apparently, they meant nothing! A handful, living a Godless life, find it in their hearts to remove that which this country agreed upon since the beginning of America. First, it’s our flags of heritage, then the marble stone etched in the corners of the lawn, right down to the landmark monuments we commemorate often. The unruly try to discredit our Christian heritage by disfiguring, and all because of the name of God.
It is shameful we do little to defend our roots as we carry our beliefs around in a pocket bible! United in prayer, but too busy to care, we don’t seem to have time to rise against the barbaric sinisterism that rises in the spread of lawlessness.
I PROCLAIM TO ALL DENOMINATIONS, RISE AND TAKE BACK THE WORD OF GOD!
Mount your voices in every corner where one or more are gathered! Like political signs lining the curbs, vote for God to be your elected official! Enough of the false intentions, and stand up for the Ten Commandments. After all, America’s laws were built on His words.
Yes, it’s time to take back what is righteously yours in this country. Those in uniform earned your freedom of choice – do not let it be in vain! Our dying democracy sits quietly like the unfurled sails of sleeping masts in a harbor of graves. Show your pride, before you are deprived – just like the bible buried in your pants.
Give God the Glory! Rise up churches! Where is your honor of proclamation? God gave us the Ten Commandments, but you can’t afford to advertise them? Put God first, proclaim the Word, and others will follow your voice.
Today, let us pay our respects to the many historical ‘houses of God’ lying in peaceful disarray. Let them remain a shrine to the dedication of those who built them with just a simple hammer and nails. I, for one, would honor the challenge for God must come first!
