Tornado relief in Mid West

As I watched the news this morning and seen all the destruction and heartbreak for those in Indiana and Tennessee and the surrounding areas, I can't help but think where is the help for these poor folks going to come from.  I know that the majority of it will come from the hearts and donations of our fellow Americans but what about federal relief funds?

Has this administration spent so much on social programs and pet projects and vacations and campaign trips that there isn't enough left for a real US emergency?  Does Sara Fluke really believe that her sexual needs or wants trumps the needs of the disaster victims, really, tax payer money for birth control for college students, really????

Are we going to have to use borrowed money to take care of our own disaster victims in the US?

Lets get our priorities straight.  The safety and security of the US citizen should be the first item on the budget.  There needs to be monies available to take care of any disaster within our borders, that includes the disaster that is the border.  Let's get the troupes out of areas in the world that don't want us and don't pay for our help and security of their nations to the detriment of our own.  Let's have them within our own borders to protect the sovereignty of our nation and be available to help the citizenry in times of disaster.

Lets get the government out of our schools, kitchens, living rooms, offices, cars, gas stations, and bedrooms and get boots on the ground within the borders to protect and defend.

I feel better now, thank you.

Dreams of the Kids

Great news, now Obama is going to make decisions that effect the world based on the dreams of 9 year olds.

OK that is probably not what he meant in his speech during the memorial service in Tucson but it just seems to me that our leaders love to use the children as the reason for everything.  Lets get real and make decisions that are good for the nation, the world, and constitutional, that will be what is best for all including the children.

Oy Veh

This health care bill stuff is making my head explode. I feel like the picture above.

I wish everyone could have everything they ever want or need and never cost them anything, but that is just not realistic.

But I guess the Marxist democrats will not believe it until history proves them wrong also.

Somethings Brewing

In 1989 or 90, I don't remember exactly, Pam and I started to attend a very special, and may I say unusual, prayer/bible study meeting just down the street from us in Joshua, TX. There wasn't any "church business" discussions or social functions and calendar events discussed. There was a lot of praying for our brothers and sisters, but the main focus and primary goal was the knowledge and absolute neccesity of knowing Christ and how to talk to and walk with Him daily, no hourly, no every minute of our lives.

Since this time in Joshua our little group of 8 or 10 people have moved on in our lives, we now live in Arlington, TX, others have moved to other states and even other countries. The pastor of this group, Curtis Dougherty and his wife Jacque, now pastor a small church, or should I say body of believers, in Mt. Vernon, WA. From their home in Wa. they have started a radio broadcast called "Radio of the Master's Voice", where they broadcast spiritual teachings and music from various teachers/preachers 24/7. There is also a link to "Grace Chapel Video" which is where you can sit in on and interact with their Wednesday and Saturday evening meetings. The setting is different but the message is the same.

Now I know this is not probably not the most interesting of information on the surface and this is not intended to be a commercial, but the interesting thing about this is that one by one, or should I say two by two, our small group of hungry believers from Joshua are finding their way from all corners of the country to these online meetings and it is glorious! Last night a brother that we hadn't heard from in 20 years just popped on and blew us all away.

I know that the Lord's plans are bigger than just giving us the pleasure of finding old friends, although He does rejoice in our joy. Since the meeting last night this has been churning in my spirit, that something big is brewing, I wouldn't be surprised to find out that this calling back to hundreds if not thousands of basement/upper room meetings was going on throughout the world.

Jesus told us to worship in spirit and in truth, how can we do this amidst a congregation of hundreds or thousands of strangers? I know that this can be inspirational and a wonderful blessing but can your spirit be truthful with God with those thousands of eyes looking on? For me I have to say "very unlikely". We all have things deep in our souls that we have to take directly to the throne of God and lay at His feet as our sacrifice of worship, we cannot do this alone, we need the love and support of close brothers and sisters in the Lord who know how to help each other on a personnal basis.

Perhaps this is the calling I am hearing, a way to have loved ones close yet physically far away, a way to renew communication with the Lord in an intimate and personnal way and not loose communion with the body of Christ.

Is anyone else feeling/experiencing this?

I encourage all who may read this to check out Grace Chapel Video's and see if they inspire and renew your soul.

A lot of questions and few answers but hey that's just the way I roll.

God Bless

Merry Christmas

OK so it has been about a year since the last blog but I doubt if anyone noticed.

Since my last blog I have been Obamasized (layed off) so rather than go to work for someone else I started my own company. Barton Tool Sales and so far all is good, of course taxes this year may change my positive outlook. I really need to find a CPA to help me as my weakest link is accounting and I refuse to fail on account of accounting.

I hope everyone has a merry Christmas and enjoy the classic Christmas carol attached.
