A semi-regular attempt to address some of life’s minutiae that might otherwise be overlooked…..
My father has always opined that there is a difference between being alone and being lonely. Loneliness is a painful, negative state where we feel excluded, unwanted, unimportant, unnoticed, cut off, & estranged from others. Solitude is a positive state where we are perfectly happy to be by ourselves and enjoy our own company.
Forgiveness: Conviction, Confession, Confidence
For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me. My vitality was turned into the drought of summer. I acknowledged my sin to You, and my iniquity I have not hidden. I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,” and You forgave the iniquity of my sin. For this cause everyone who is godly shall pray to You in a time when You may be found. Surely in a flood of great waters they shall not come near him. You are my hiding place. You shall preserve me from trouble. You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. (Psalm 32:4-7)
For all you java lovers out there:
U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV), in a conversation about gun control, recently stated that “The problem that we have, and really the firewall that we have right now, is due process. It’s all due process. Due process is what’s killing us right now.” Due process, for those whose American history teachers may have been busy molesting students instead of teaching them, is another one of those pesky Constitutional rights that liberals are hellbent & determined to eradicate (except for Muslims & other illegal immigrants). The Fifth Amendment to The Constitution says that no one should be “deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law”. The 14th Amendment states that states cannot “deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law”. The Founding Fathers felt due process was so important they mentioned it twice!! Who does Joe Manchin think he is?!?!?!?? If my fellow West Virginians give this traitor another term in office they are INSANE!! Hell, he should be impeached NOW!!!!
Just in case you haven’t been paying attention the past seven years…
