For Christian American readers of this blog:

I wish to incite all Christians to rise up and take back the United States of America with all of God's manifold blessings. We want the free allowance of the Bible and prayers allowed again in schools, halls of justice, and all governing bodies. We don't seek a theocracy until Jesus returns to earth because all men are weak and power corrupts the very best of them.
We want to be a kinder and gentler people without slavery or condescension to any.

The world seems to be in a time of discontent among the populace. Christians should not fear. God is Love, shown best through Jesus Christ. God is still in control. All Glory to our Creator and to our God!

A favorite quote from my good friend, Jack Plymale, which I appreciate:

"Wars are planned by old men,in council rooms apart. They plan for greater armament, they map the battle chart, but: where sightless eyes stare out, beyond life's vanished joys, I've noticed,somehow, all the dead and mamed are hardly more than boys(Grantland Rice per our mutual friend, Sarah Rapp)."

Thanks Jack!

I must admit that I do not check authenticity of my posts. If anyone can tell me of a non-biased arbitrator, I will attempt to do so more regularly. I know of no such arbitrator for the internet.

Story of Two Pots ... Thx Paul C!

Subject: How could I resist sending this one

>>> An elderly Chinese woman had two large pots, each hung on the ends
>>> of a pole which she carried across her neck.
>>> One of the pots had a crack in it while the other pot was perfect
>>> and always delivered a full portion of water.
>>> At the end of the long walks from the stream to the house, the
>>> cracked pot arrived only half full.
>>> For a full two years this went on daily, with the woman bringing
>>> home only one and a half pots of water.
>>> Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments.
>>> But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection, and
>>> miserable that it could only do half of what it had been made to do.
>>> After two years of what it perceived to be bitter failure, it spoke
>>> to the woman one day by the stream.
>>> 'I am ashamed of myself, because this crack in my side causes water
>>> to leak out all the way back to your house.'
>>> The old woman smiled, 'Did you notice that there are flowers on your
>>> side of the path, but not on the other pot's side?'
>>> 'That's because I have always known about your flaw, so I planted
>>> flower seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk
>>> back, you water them.'
>>> For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to
>>> decorate the table.
>>> Without you being just the way you are, there would not be this
>>> beauty to grace the house.'
>>> Each of us has our own unique flaw. But it's the cracks and flaws
>>> we each have that make our lives together so very interesting and
>>> rewarding.
>>> You've just got to take each person for what they are and look for
>>> the good in them.
>>> SO, to all of my cracked pot friends, have a great day and remember
>>> to smell the flowers on your side of the path!
