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.

GI mowing grass w/scissors in Iraq . . . Thx friend, Ron W!

It is obvious that this soldier and his buddies appreciate their little piece of home. We should be so proud of our servicemen. God bless them.
Gotta admit, this brought tears to my eyes!  Bless him and all the rest of our military serving to protect and keep us free!!  
Mowing grass - Priceless. . ..
I can't think of a better word than "PRICELESS" FOR THIS. . .
I hope the picture will go through for you - of this Army soldier in Iraq with his tiny 'plot' of grass in front of his tent.
It's heartwarming!  Here is a soldier in Iraq , stationed in a big sand box.
He asked his wife to send him dirt (U.S. soil), fertilizer, and some grass seed so that he can have the sweet aroma,
and feel the grass grow beneath his feet.  When the men of the squadron have a mission that they are going on, they
take turns walking through the grass and theAmerican soil -- to bring them good luck.
Of all the things he could have asked his wife to send to him from home...........he asked for American soil.  WOW.

If you notice, he is even cutting the grass with a pair of scissors.  Sometimes we are in such a hurry that we
don't stop and think about the little things that we take for granted.

Upon receiving this, say a little prayer for our soldiers that give and give (and give up) so unselfishly for us.
You don't have to send this on, but gosh, who wouldn't
