Happy Easter weekend WP Peeps! (<— 'peeps' haha, see what I did there? :p )

It seems interesting that we refer to the day Christ died as ‘Good Friday’. Considering the events of the day, tragic or awful seems more appropriate.  However, we ultimately know what God was up to that day.  Though the events seemed very ‘BAD’, God was using everything that happened for ‘GOOD’. (only 1:53 long)


On Sunday, IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!!  Well, not really… however:

Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.  -Romans 6:4

Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.  -Colossians 2:12



Sharing a neato program!

I enjoy customizing my pc desktop with wallpaper (one reason why I make them!) but I also continually want a photo of my (now adult) children in front of my eyes at all times… I have always had to choose one or the other, I did not like that.  Been searching the net for sometime, for a program that would enable me to tack any photo I wanted on top of my wallpaper and I finally found a fantastic one!  It is FREE, simple and crisp, works perfectly and does not use up system resources, so wanted to share just in case you have a desire to place a photo (or graphic, whatever) on top of your chosen customized wallpaper!  It is called Photo on Desktop-7 1.1 by Style-7 and is a 100% clean download from Softpedia.

0bama Declares War On “Extremism” – Are You An “Extremist”?

ATTENTION:  I have pinned this post to the top, newer posts can be found below.

Submitted by Michael Snyder via The Economic Collapse blog,

Do you know what an “extremist” is?  In the wake of the horrible terror attacks on the offices of Charlie Hebdo in France, Barack Obama is speaking very boldly about the need to win the war against “extremists”, and he has announced plans to host a major global summit on “extremism” next month.  And on the surface that sounds great.  But precisely how are we supposed to determine whether someone is an “extremist” or not?  What criteria should we use?

As you will see below, your definition of an “extremist” may be far, far different from the definition that Barack Obama is using.  When you do a Google search, you will find that an “extremist” is defined as “a person who holds extreme or fanatical political or religious views, especially one who resorts to or advocates extreme action.”  According to Wikipedia, “extremism” is “an ideology (particularly in politics or religion), considered to be far outside the mainstream attitudes of a society or to violate common moral standards.  Extremism can take many forms, including political, religious and economic.”  Please notice that neither of those definitions uses the word violence.  In this day and age, you can be considered an “extremist” simply based on what you believe, and as you will see later in this article there are now tens of millions of Americans that are considered to be “extremists” and “potential terrorists” according to official U.S. government documents.

When you use the word “extremist”, you may have in your mind a picture of ISIS fighters or the terrorists from the Charlie Hebdo massacre.

But for elitists such as Barack Obama, the word “extremist” has a much broader meaning.  In recent years, it has become a code word for those that do not have an “enlightened” view of the world.  If your views on politics, religion or social issues are extremely different from the liberal, progressive views of “the mainstream” (as defined by the mainstream media and by “mainstream” politicians such as Barack Obama), then they consider you to be an extremist.

Early in the presidency of George W. Bush, we were told that Islamic terrorists were the enemy.  And so most of the country got behind the idea of the War on Terrorism.  But over the years that has morphed into a War on Extremism.  In fact, the Obama administration has gone so far as to remove almost all references to Islam from government terror training materials

Deputy U.S. Attorney General James Cole confirmed on Wednesday that the Obama administration was pulling back all training materials used for the law enforcement and national security communities, in order to eliminate all references to Islam that some Muslim groups have claimed are offensive.


“I recently directed all components of the Department of Justice to re-evaluate their training efforts in a range of areas, from community outreach to national security,” Cole told a panel at the George Washington University law school.

Now, much of the focus in law enforcement training materials is on “domestic extremists”.  We are being told that “domestic extremism” is just as great a threat to our national security as terror groups overseas are.

But exactly who are these “domestic extremists”?

Well, the truth is that you may be one of them.

I want to share with you a list that I have shared in a couple of previous articles.  It is a list of 72 types of Americans that are considered to be “extremists” or “potential terrorists” in official U.S. government documents.  This list will really give you a good idea of what Barack Obama means when he uses the word “extremist”.  Each of these 72 items is linked, so if you would like to go see the original source document for yourself, just click on the link.  As you can see, this list potentially includes most of the country…

Do you fit into any of those categories?

Personally, I fit into a couple dozen of them.

That is why alarm bells should go off whenever Barack Obama speaks of the need to crack down on “extremism”.

If Barack Obama wants to denounce Islamic terror, he should do so.  But because of his extreme political correctness, he goes out of his way to avoid any connection between Islam and terror.  Instead, he speaks of the need to recognize “Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings” and he insists that “the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”

Meanwhile, our liberties and freedoms are being eroded a little bit more with each passing day.  In the name of fighting “terrorism” or “extremism”, our government is constructing a Big Brother police state control grid all around us.  I like the way that Ron Paul* described what is happening to us just the other day

If Americans were honest with themselves they would acknowledge that the Republic is no more. We now live in a police state. If we do not recognize and resist this development, freedom and prosperity for all Americans will continue to deteriorate. All liberties in America today are under siege.


It didn’t happen overnight. It took many years of neglect for our liberties to be given away so casually for a promise of security from the politicians. The tragic part is that the more security was promised — physical and economic — the less liberty was protected.


With cradle-to-grave welfare protecting all citizens from any mistakes and a perpetual global war on terrorism, which a majority of Americans were convinced was absolutely necessary for our survival, our security and prosperity has been sacrificed.


It was all based on lies and ignorance. Many came to believe that their best interests were served by giving up a little freedom now and then to gain a better life.


The trap was set. At the beginning of a cycle that systematically undermines liberty with delusions of easy prosperity, the change may actually seem to be beneficial to a few. But to me that’s like excusing embezzlement as a road to leisure and wealth — eventually payment and punishment always come due. One cannot escape the fact that a society’s wealth cannot be sustained or increased without work and productive effort. Yes, some criminal elements can benefit for a while, but reality always sets in.


Reality is now setting in for America and for that matter for most of the world. The piper will get his due even if “the children” have to suffer. The deception of promising “success” has lasted for quite a while. It was accomplished by ever-increasing taxes, deficits, borrowing, and printing press money. In the meantime the policing powers of the federal government were systematically and significantly expanded. No one cared much, as there seemed to be enough “gravy” for the rich, the poor, the politicians, and the bureaucrats.

The country that our forefathers founded is dying.

Now, individuals and organizations that attempt to restore the values that our founders once believed in so strongly are regarded as dangerous “extremists” that need to be watched carefully.

Sadly, most Americans don’t even realize what is happening to this nation.  As long as they are fed a constant diet of mindless entertainment, most Americans are perfectly content to let “the experts” do their thinking for them.

We are steamrolling toward oblivion, and most of the country is dead asleep.

So is there any hope for us?

Why wasn’t America represented in Paris at the World Leaders Unity March against terrorism?…

In his own words, this is why 0b0la, or any top United States official, did not attend:

I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.

The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.

Happy New Year 2015!

Animated Happy New Year Banner

I made this animated banner many years ago… feel free to snag and share!


Well here we are at the beginning of another year.  I was thinking about this new year and was truly not being too excited about it… but then I remembered Psalms 118:24This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.  So, no matter what my eyes see, no matter the circumstances of this life, nothing and nobody can steal the Joy of the Lord that is within me… only *I* can allow that Light to dim.

For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name. – Psalms 33:21

Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. – Habakkuk 3:18

Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice. – Philippians 4:4

Rejoice evermore. – 1 Thessalonians 5:16

2 Corinthians 4

King James Version (KJV)

1 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;

But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.

But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:

In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.

For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;

Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;

10 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.

11 For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.

12 So then death worketh in us, but life in you.

13 We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;

14 Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you.

15 For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.

16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.

17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;

18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

 May YOUR New Year Be Blessed in Christ Jesus!


Merry Christmas 2014!

If you are like me, you celebrate the meaning of Christmas in spirit and with awe… even if historically, our Lord and Savior was actually born in another time of year, the world comes together on a specific day and gives praise and honor to our Righteous King, Christ Jesus! So, Merry Christmas 2014 my brothers and sisters… may He be the only reason, not just during the season, but all year through!! GLORY!!  This is my favorite version of this beautiful song…  It was a Holy night!  🎶 Fall on your knees! Oh hear the angel voices! 🎶


Situational Awareness Safety (survival) Tips:

I wrote these up for my adult children, as well as a reminder for myself.

Who is responsible for your safety?  Is it the police?  The government?  Others?

Nobody is responsible for you, but you.

Personal responsibility, personal self awareness and personal accountability… those should be the goals of every individual in earth.  If each of us had this train of thought, than everyone would be safer.  This is a small list of things one can do to enhance their individual and personal situational awareness in safety and for survival… of course, there are many more things and if you have any, please share them in the comments section!


  • Buddy system… two is better than one when out and about
  • Stay off your phone (calls AND text) and pay attention to your surroundings… look forward not at the ground
  • No listening to music… do not prohibit your hearing with ear-buds
  • Avoid groups and large crowds… ‘mob mentality’ forms when there is a ‘mob’
  • No ‘short cuts’… stay out of back streets, ally’s, paths that are not well lit, etc…
  • Stay away from unfamiliar areas… especially at night
  • Pay attention to those around you… be in the habit of looking behind yourself periodically to know who is there
  • When in a building (restaurant, store, etc) sit in the back, face the entry and observe the exits… know your surroundings
  • Wear shoes that you can run easily in… you can bring your professional shoes (heals, loafers) to change into at your destination
  • Be an ‘eavesdropper’! … listening to people is imperative to knowing what is going on around you
  • When in your vehicle: park your car so that your door is facing the front door of the establishment, if it’s dark make sure you park as close to under a lamp as possible, immediately when you enter lock your doors… have your keys out and ready before leaving the building and walking into the parking lot

Nobody should live in fear and being as personally aware as you can, gives you the power to overcome fear!  * Political Correctness is FASCISM pretending to be manners and cowardice pretending to be courage.  May God bless and keep you and yours in Christ!


God is in Control…

As evil abounds worldwide and we struggle to make some sense of it all,

This is just a reminder that God loves us and victory is ours if we listen to His call,

So take a few moments and be entertained, by this song with the gripping scenes,

Knowing that through the Power of Christ Jesus, as believers, we have been redeemed!

😀 -Me

GLORY!  While listening to my iTunes today, this song popped up and filled me with joy!

The Champion by Carman


Romans 8:38-39

For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.


The Sky is Falling!

Yesterday I wrote a post that said “The CDC is LYING!” … today, I replace it with this one.

One of the blessed things that Christ Jesus gives us is peace.  The whole freakin’ world can be on fire (and if you are paying attention, it kinda is) but He gives a peace to His followers, that many cannot even understand.  Sooo, ebola.  Panicking yet?  Me either, not yet that is.  However, just because one does not freak out and run around screaming “the sky is falling!”, does not mean that one should not be aware, paying continuous attention and do anything and everything within ones ability to keep themselves as safe as possible (there’s that individual responsibility thing again!).  The CDC is a government agency… and I seem to recall the federal government lying to the people countless times just within the past year or so.  Heck, enterovirus D68 is in an epidemic stage (at least 6 dead and multiple children nationwide who are paralyzed), but there are still many people in this nation who have no idea what it even is.  So is the CDC doing their job correctly on informing the people of that infectious disease, which has been spreading through the good ol’ USA for many months now?  My point is, we should never put our belief, trust or faith in ANY man (Psalm 146:3).  No government or agency.  It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.

There are things one can do… It is the beginning of cold / flu season, so, this common sense approach will help thoroughly in the long run:


  • Stay away from those who look sick.  If you see coughing, sneezing, nose dribbles, etc… walk away immediately.  Always have a ‘safe zone’ between you and others, 3 ft or more.  Stay away from large crowds…


  • If you are ‘out and about’ in the world, pay attention to the things you touch.  Doorknobs, light switches, shopping carts, etc… because they all have multiple germs on them.


  • Wash your hands.  OMGOSH I know, the CDC said that.  But, it is part of the fabric of keeping germs away.  When you wash your hands, wash all the way up to the elbows.  Use warm water and soap and make sure you suds up at least until the slow count of ten.  Now, for many, you are thinking “well duh, this is common sense”… but you would not believe (or maybe you would) the multiple people I see in the ladies room who come out of a stall and walk right out the door.  They touched the toilet, they touched the stall handle, they touched the door handle to get out… all after they touched their private parts.  NOT ACCEPTABLE.  So, going back to the ‘pay attention to the things you touch’… just assume nobody washes their hands and that everything is loaded with germs.  That way, it’s in your head and you will find yourself washing your hands multiple times a day!


  • Keep a clean home.  Bleach kills stuff  ;), take off shoes at door and don’t wear them through the home, disinfect at least once a week, etc…


“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” -— Benjamin Franklin

Individual responsibility.  We are not in control of the fact that this administration continues to allow people passage into this nation from ebola (and other infectious diseased) nations, we are not in control of someone coming in and ‘sharing’ their sicknesses with the United States population, etc…  But we are in control of our own individual responsibility.  Think about things that you can do for your household: supplies to have on hand, a plan to shelter in if there is an outbreak of something near you.  The motto of the Boy Scouts comes to mind:  Be Prepared.  Because, guaranteed, there will be those who are not aware and are not prepared, and for them, the sky is falling.


For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” -Romans 8:15

Don’t know Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, but want to?
