Hearing political debates and interviews from various hopefuls gets me thinking. As I see in my generic big picture, the GOP would do away with Soc. Sec. That would be devasting to me and millions of those who rely totally on Soc. Sec. There would be deep cuts in entitlements that help the poor. Once again, corporations and the extremely wealthy would pay -0- taxes, while professing a huge tax percentage. On the other side, even the Pope admonished as a Biblical challenge, to help the poor and feed the hungry. While they may help the poor, their morality issues get an F-. Why should tax payers have to pay for abortions. Everyone has a choice, but I don't want to pay for your bad choices. In my estimation, sex should not be on a political forum. I don't give a hootif some man wants to be a woman, or a woman thinks she is a man. Don't flaunt it in my face, and expect me to give you any special preferences. Keep it in your own bedroom. What is this concept that we can speak of perversion openly, but we had better not mention Jesus. What has this world come to! I read about a time, in the not so distant past, that corporations shared huge profits with the employees. Not so today. The gap between the workers and the owner is great and getting greater. Employees work for minimum wage in a lot of places, while the corporation show huge, huge profits. That is the mentality of the country and corporations. I don't think of the American dream....I see the American greed. Maybe we need two presidents now. One to handle businees deals, and one to handle security. Or, perhaps our vice president should also be individually elected by the people for a job we want him to do, instead of being a runner up in a beauty pageant.

I believe in prayer. I just completed the Daniel Fast. I petitioned the Lord to free my children of their addictions. In earnest, I told the Lord to cleanse my home of all addictions. I prayed that he would cleanse me as well....I loathe usage of any form, but wanted a closer walk with the Lord. Sometime in that 21 days, I noticed I have not played my favorite Facebook game, Farmville, and my actual time on Facebook is about 5 or 6 minutes a couple of times a day.....not a couple of hours....Meanwhile, my children are still smoking....Back to my knees.

This morning it was -2 degrees with a windchill of -15....that's negative 15...Brrrrrr. At 3:00 pm., it is only 14. It has been a beautiful day. The sun is shining, and I believe the term is: fair. We have snow cover, so it is WINTER. So many of our friends and acquaintances have died over the past year. A old friend Esther Johnson died suddenly in the night. It is getting quite disconcerting; we are both 74 years old.A fried of mine died of cancer a couple of years ago. Since then, my best friend, maid of honor in my wedding died this fall. She had cancer, but many other health issues were the cause, as the cancer was not life threatening at the time. Currently, 7 friends and acquaintances have cancer. We are living only by God's grace. March 7, 2014, my daughters apartment caught fire. Since then, she and her 2 children have been living with us. Skylar is 16. I can't believe he will be 17 on Feb. 7th. Austin was 11 July 10th. His Pappaw's birthday is the 15th. We have a big party. August 30th, my oldest son came home. He will be 48 Feb. 11th, sso there will be another party. Some may think our parties are boring, but there will be plenty of food, non-alcoholic drinks and laughter. My family is my life. I will have to admit, having a full house again is sometimes challenging, with so many personalities. In spite of that, hubby and I have thoroughly enjoyed having them here.
