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.

I am forwarding this to those on my Senior email list because it is so well written.  Please send back. (I did) 
It's neat. Don't delete this one, you'll laugh when you see the return message. I have seen too many dear friends 
leave this world, too soon; before they understood the great freedom that comes with aging.
the freakin' old people?
Whose business is it, if I choose to read, or play on the computer, until 4 AM, or sleep until noon? I will dance 
with myself to those wonderful tunes of the 50s, 60s & 70s, and if I, at the same time, wish to weep over a lost love,
I will.

I will walk the beach, in a swim suit that is stretched over a bulging body, and will dive into the waves, with 
abandon, if I choose to, despite the pitying glances from the jet set. They, too, will get old.

I know I am sometimes forgetful. But there again, some of life is just as well forgotten. And, eventually, I remember 
the important things.


Sure, over the years, my heart has been broken. How can your heart not break, when you lose a loved one, or 
when a child suffers, or even when somebody's beloved pet gets hit by a car? But broken hearts are what give us 
strength, and understanding, and compassion. A heart never broken, is pristine, and sterile, and will never know 
the joy of being imperfect.

I am so blessed to have lived long enough to have my hair turn gray, and to have my youthful laughs be forever 
etched into deep grooves on my face. So many have never laughed, and so many have died before their hair 
could turn silver.

As you get older, it is easier to be positive. You care less about what other people think. I don't question myself 
anymore. I've even earned the right to be wrong.

So, to answer your question, I like being old. It has set me free. I like the person I have become. I am not going 
to live forever, but while I am still here, I will not waste time lamenting what could have been, or worrying about 
what will be. And I shall eat dessert every single day (if I feel like it).
