Where was the UN? Where was Secretary of State John Kerry, when Hamas was lobbing thousands upon thousands of missiles into Israel? For some reason now they are upset and there needs to be intervention because Israel decided to put an end to this and invaded Gaza. Is one of the reasons why the UN wants this to end because Israel is finding missiles stored in UN schools and that they are being fired from UN buildings? Or could the real reason be is that the UN hates Israel and wants to see it wiped off the face of the earth like the Palestinians do? Could the reason be that Secretary of State John Kerry is trying to broker a peace, because he and the President are pro-Palestinian?
Maybe it is time to allow Israel to deal with these terrorist. That is what Hamas is. They are terrorists who are hiding behind children, the sick, and the elderly while they try to kill the people of Israel.
I offer my prayers for God’s nation; God’s chosen people, the people of Israel.
The sad thing the biggest loser in all this border crossing is the children. They are shipped off with hopes of a better life while enduring countless horrors only to arrive in the US and being thrown in a holding place not knowing what is going to happen to them. Our borders need to be secured and the rule of law needs to be followed, but we need to protect these children. They need be shown love, mercy and kindness by us as a nation and us as Christians.
This path that I am on, the one of who I was who I am, and whom I hope to be is the hardest the scariest thing I could have ever imagined. Even though I believe I am able to roll with any of the punches that life throws at me and that I have the strength to overcome any of the obstacles the appear along the way, to be completely honest, I am not whom I think or hope I am. This war, these daily battles in life just point me to how tired how weak I am and how I need the love and strength of God in my life. Without His love and strength I would be heading to if not already in the grave…
It has been awhile since I last did some random thoughts so here I go.
My Cubbies were finally playing well and had a chance to break even by the end of the year, but the team decided to trade away the 2 best pitchers they had. That killed the season. I am tired of killing the season because the team is cheap.. I wish the Tribune still owned the team.
I went to the zoo over the weekend and all I can say it is just as I had remembered it was like when I went there as a child.
Again this year I did not go to see the fireworks over the 4th. I have not gone out to watch the fireworks in over 20 years. It just does not seem like it is worth the hassle of going to see them.
I have come to believe that the problem with all those people crossing our southern border is President Obama’s fault. If he really wanted to end this problem he could send the troops to secure the border. This about politics and I believe that he does not care if it harms this country.
I hope you all have a nice day and week.
After a long couple of weeks filled with health, career and life disappointments, I decided to attend the Brewers game with some of my coworkers. Who would have ever guessed that things would have changed my prospective that night.
As I sat in my seat Friday night, I was as much people watching as I was watching the baseball game. There was mother and a young daughter, who I would guess might be around 3 years old, watching the game. The mother played with her child in between the batters and the inning. Her daughter laughed with joy as she played with her mother. As the game went along the daughter climbed onto her mothers lap and you could see a smile that could light the universe as her mother whispered into her ear. I watched a elderly gentleman lightly stroke his wife’s back while she was talking to him. As the game progressed I watched a lady rest her head on her husbands shoulder and he gently rested his head on hers while he held her. I watched friends reconnect as they caught up about life that was happening to them.
It was during this time I realized that God was there.
As I drove home after the game, with the window down and sunroof open, the past couple of weeks disappointment and hurts began to melt way. I remembered that love will overcome the wrongs in this life.
I am not sure what the next couple of weeks or months have in store for me. I am sure there are going to be days when all is wrong and I am not sure what is up or down, I just need to remember that God’s love is always there and hopefully during those times when I do not remember I will witness the love that God has shared in this world.
Oh by the way, the game was a great one. The game ended with a walk off hit.
