To The Boomer’s Babies

My child of knowledge, without wisdom, your spineless acts are to the contrary.

To The Boomer's Babies


Aggression – it has prospered. Words with meaning a generation ago, doesn’t mean much to a new way of life. I watch the news as a few of our children fight for fame. They will more likely end up incarcerated. So, you think to liberate our beloved homeland is the answer? To make change, for better or for worse, tell me where God is in this equation.

The insubordinates that never attend church, stand in the shadows of the tall believing their rights are violated. My child of knowledge, without wisdom, your spineless acts are to the contrary. The history books will never mention the hate, the hell, and violent Revolutions of the Sixties (see article below).

To The Boomer's Babies 2

Your thoughts remain that all things are new. Well like bell bottoms or madras, the Boomers have seen it all before. Flexing your freedom doesn’t make it right. God stands quietly on the side lines with His collective heritage of souls.

My children of little faith, your draft number was never called. You have never fought another’s battles. “I am human first”, a quote posted on social media, was from a nice young man. He has never met ISIS where one’s life is not worth a damn. But his point, well taken, we MUST love our brothers.

 

To The Boomer's Babies cover

I wake in prayer, as corny as it may sound. I’ve found peace as others around me live in turmoil. You grasp at life, belligerent and trying to make your own mark in this world. Obviously, you do not believe in Christ or the gift of miracles.

Good luck is all you need. We thought so, too, at your age. But as we aged and experienced life, we did walk away with some wisdom. It’s something you cannot earn at thirty-something!

So, you want to take command of a country? Let’s scrutinize North Korea. Is that what you really want? Our country was founded on values and love for our fellow man; honor and respect for our neighbors; helping those less fortunate. This is not a home of genocide, “I’m human first.”

All lives matter, but let’s not forget that GOD is first! Christ was a miracle and so are you. Go back to our basic principles…you drive on the right. I hope you put God in your equation, if He’s not already. Learn from your Father’s wisdom. The mistakes we made, we made to protect you and your future! Be blessed and if you’re not doing it already, find a church.

A Lit-Less Day

The Bible speaks of Christ rising in the dark of day.

I stood with the masses and never gave a thought how our world had come to a screeching halt. The highways and byways, cars were parked everywhere. The city streets reminded me of a Walmart parking lot. The sky darkened in the bright of day. People looked toward the heavens as though Christ might come again. The Bible speaks of Christ rising in the dark of day.  Personally, I would rather believe Christ left the earth in jubilation taking the sins of mankind with Him.

I, too, watched in awe. Is it time for all those who believe to rise and shine? The earth paused. Nature’s anointed knew, also, this was something supernatural. An eerie quiet fell over the world and God, with His mighty power, covered our country in darkness. Ashamed, disgruntled, and disappointed, our Father in heaven cast shadows where sin has traveled. Civil unrest has undermined His will. Determined to cast His word, He covered the sun in attempt to prove His power.

On a lit-less day, God took over our routines. We stood in awe and watched; some of God, prayed. Most think the path of darkness it followed was just a coincidence. But I was aware of His ultimate power showing the strength where Satan ruled. From non-believers to those of all faiths, God in heaven proved He knew what to cover on Earth. Praying people would take notice as Satan tried to rule the skies, our Father in heaven left little doubt when the darkness fell.

Astronomers searched the stars in the heavens. But only God will let the world know that the heavens are not for the naked eye; but merely for the souls that truly believe. In the streets, faith was tested. Holding hands, the Christians prayed.

I stood in a doorway, like an eye of a needle….watching for a camel to come.**

Christ rising in the dark of day:  For the stars of heaven and their constellations Will not flash forth their light; The sun will be dark when it rises And the moon will not shed its light. (Isaiah 13:10)

Editor’s Comments:

On many occasions, God commanded His people to watch. He gave signs for a reason. If He didn’t want us to pay attention, He wouldn’t have given signs.  It is unusual that today’s social upheavals are an indication of a trying time – a time when there is a natural predisposition for sin, and for strict judgment of that sin.

Looking at the map below, you will see the exact route that the August 21, 2017 eclipse traveled.

There has been much social unrest in this country for a very long time.  With that being said, observe on the map below the critical areas of major rioting and upheavals in the last 50 years.

God definitely made points with signs in the sky throughout the Bible. But is He still doing the same thing today?  You decide!

The Sandbox

Our minds are designed to create and build – not to tear down and destroy.

Sitting in the shade, wiping my sweat, the yard is manicured once more. It’s so nice to enjoy the love that comes from looking to God and the beautiful blue sky. I thank Him for another day of gorgeous grace. In my little cul-de-sac, the concrete wraps in harmony; the blacktop sweeps in tranquility. Peace and love rings out in my little neighborhood. God abounds.

Reminiscing in the shade while continuously wiping my brow, I think back to when Kirk and I were little kids. We’d play for hours with our Matchbox toys; building tunnels and roads through the piles of sand in my little sandbox. Pretending to create a life of make-believe, we built a world where the only problem was leaving our toys outside if it rained.

With endless hours of sharing our childhood, we learned to live and get along. I guess we fought once in a while; I don’t remember anymore. But the fact remains, we got along and grew up in normalcy. Our interests grew and changed. Diversified, we lost contact. Some days, like today, I go back and sit on the edge of my little sandbox wishing for those younger days.

Today, I’m watching the parade of demonstrators marching in solidarity. They, I bet, never knew the love of God that grows from life in a sandbox. Our minds are designed to create and build – not to tear down and destroy. Memories are like a keepsake proudly displaying on the living room mantle. Framed pictures that commemorate the way things were, line the hallway. And a crucifix of Christ protects the covenant that God blesses the hearts of passed ones.

I see the innocent demonstrate their acclaimed individual rights. The fore-fathers, before them, fought for those rights. Now the monuments are all but destroyed. That which was commemorated, is now denounced. Ridiculous!

So what time is it….1967??

I’m watching the news…. fifty years too late! I’ve seen this rerun before!

I’m disgusted with the progress we are prospering – in reverse. Let’s go back in time and recreate the joy of God we found in our own little sandbox once more!

God establishes government to be an authority, and he establishes family to teach the importance of respecting authority.
