Nothing too hard...

Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me? -Jeremiah 32:27

My walk with God is limited only by the limitations of my faith and acceptance of His will for my life.

Sometimes I watch programs that discuss the awesome vast nature of the universe and I try to comprehend just how small Earth is (let alone my state or even just me). It is surely mind-boggling, but even more so is the fact that God, Who created this all, cares enough for me that He sent His Son to minister to us and eventually die on the cross. Even that act of sacrifice was not "too hard" for God, although I am sure it was difficult.

The tomb where they put Jesus' body is empty. As Christians, we know why that is. We know that Easter has nothing to do with pagan ceremony or the Easter Bunny. It has to do with hope. Eternal hope.The Creator of the universe would have no problem with resurrection. 

The hope He has given us is of incalculable value and available to all who receive Him. Have you partaken of the greatest gift you will ever receive.

But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart”—that is, the word of faith which we are preaching, that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; -Romans 10:8-9 (NASB)

Just a bit of DISGUST...

I've got to admit I expected more from the do-nothing body we call Congress with its GOP majority at present. Instead, we got more of the same old tired rhetoric we have been getting for the past 7+ years now about how terrible Obamacare is.

The plan they managed to produce after all this time (Paul Ryan's) is not much better than what is in place and apparently leaves a lot of middle-class people financially screwed. I understand it polled with a 17% approval rate. All I know is the many votes over the past few years to repeal it were nothing more than political grandstanding --  a waste of time and taxpayer money. All the Republicans seem to be able to do is criticize and come up with little to offer themselves. They cannot even seem to reach a consensus among themselves (a problem they have had as long as I can remember).

Personally, I have felt for a long time that they should simply fix what is in place so it works better and offers more flexibility with lower costs. I th…

Think, not react...

The 'action-reaction' scenario that has been playing out between progressives and conservatives is a situation that is becoming increasingly counter-productive and harmful. This is obviously not something new; the battle between left and right has been raging for a long time and those flames were also well-fanned by the previous administration and ineffective congress. Sadly, what happens is a loss of focus on issues that we should be working together to solve and increase in counter-productive squabbling. The level of immaturity being witnessed as coming from our 45th president is unfortunate. Less use of Twitter would serve him better, provided he actually took the time to build better relationships with key figures in the media. Some of it has been nothing short of childish and the sort of thing I might have engaged in as a 12 year old, were Twitter in existence then.

President Trump's tendency to engage in knee-jerk reactions is unfortunate. A case in point is his exec…

Remembering Why

I was watching Bill O'Reilly this evening as he interviewed Tony Orlando, who has agreed to perform at the Armed Services Ball. Not only is he doing it for the veterans, he is doing it for America -- out of respect for our tradition of a peaceful transfer of power. He made it clear that, had Hillary won and asked him to perform, he would do the same. It is not a partisan thing. It's about America, not an individual. Bravo, Tony. A true patriotic American.
