This past week   I lost one of my dearest friends  Dolores Mader of Walkill NY>

We met in Queens  when we were members of a volunteer   ambulance corps.   It was the most wonderful experience in my life. Giving help to those who needed help.  It was one experience that changed me for the better.

When you volunteer and help others    you do not realize  the experience  brings you full circle to the spot where  you begin.

When you do this you  make friends  with the most amazing, loving,  gifted  people  that God has given you.  These people will move heaven hell and earth, for you.   They will be your friend , confidant, mom,dad,sister or brother.

Dolores was that  for me.  She and her husband Paul Mader and kids will forever be family to me.

We had both just had miscarriages when we got really close.    Dolores would be the driver  and I the emt.  We would be on call while the kids were in school.  We had shared our lives and most private moments and thoughts.

I could never ask for a better friend.      I could never ask for anyone more loyal and trustworthy.

For many years Dolores served at her church, and many other organizations.

Now God called her home.

She  battled cancer for four years.      She is now victorious over  life.   God has her with him.   I know she is looking down on  her family today.

Paul and his family are  so brave    Becca their youngest daughter is getting married today to Dan .  Mom will watch from Heaven.

Her body is earthbound   Her soul is with them.  She is free  now  to praise God, be healthy and happy with Him.

God is so good.   He  BRINGS   people together for a reason.

It seems  Dolores taught me a lot.   Real Love, Hope,Joy.     Those gifts will be with me forever.

I pray that   each of you   take that friendship  when offered  .   It is  a Gift  you do  Not want to miss…..   Patti,  aka  grammasrunamuck

Today  I have been watching James Robison  and his wife Betty.  

Their guest was  Shane Warren .http://shanewarren.org/  His book ” The Last Days of America”   is available   http://shanewarren.org/resources/thelastdaysofamerica/

The discussion has been on   whether the USA has gone too far afield of what God wants for us.

Both James Robison and Shane Warren have written books on this subject.

James Robison’s book is Indivisble.   It is co authored by Pastor Jay W Richards.

This book is intriguing .  It fully describes the way this nation has turned from God to following a path of sure destruction.

Here is a link on Amazon  to a synopsis  and part of the first several chapters.

I found that this book  really describes both in historical content and in what is happening in our nation today.

When this nation was formed  God was paramount in all levels of government, daily life and the plans for the future

Now  our president , yes in small letters no caps  , since I do not believe he is entitled to the office nor the title.    He is the first potus to leave our troops behind. He is the first potus to abandon our Ambassador. He did nothing to prevent the rapes and murders of US citizens.      He is the first potus to create racial discord.   He has done in my opinion so much to destroy the faith of Christians in the USA.

In this country  Christians,Jews and Buddhists are not allowed to pray in school.  The partisan behavior or  politically ahem correct  leaders of our nation allow  Moslems to pray in schools. 

Dearborn MI  and Chicago IL  both allow this.  Now others are following suit. 

Our potus  is in favor of removing God from the pledge of allegiance,  money ,buildings, funerals for our troops no matter what their beliefs are.

On the other hand a Moslem sits in Fort Hood  charged with and confessed murder of our troops.    That man can pray at will.  He is given special foods, time for prayer and other benefits not given other prisoners.  I do not understand this at all.

I was raised to believe and practice that  all men are created equal. 

I could go on for days with all the info gathered on the internet,tv,radio and newspapers  the  misguided behavior ,or is it intentional destruction of this nation.

Shane Warren’s book deals very closely with the history of the USA, her people, and their connection to God.   The blessings  they received in the USA  was what made this nation great.

Shane Warren and James Robison both speak of the hope  for the USA, the indecisiveness of the public, the media and all the unwillingness to change the path we are on by our leaders.    

Both books give hope.  They remind us that if we want to change this nation we must stand up for the US Constitution, our faith, and each other.

No man is an island. No man stands alone,  unless we all  hide from the truth.

We all tell God what we want, how we feel, yet   do we listen to HIM?

We are His. We as Joyce Meyer says     our hearts are Christ’s home.

I strongly encourage you to look past what you see in the news and find the truth.I sincerely hope that you read both books.  I want to see this as a chance to rebuild our nation under GOD.

If we do nothing  our nation will have drawn her last breath.  As we see our president has broken the law by allowing  illegal immigrants into the nation. He has cast aside those seeking legal methods for entry.  It appears that in and of itself has endangered our national security,as well as the security and safety of all Americans.

I ask that you all do not  fall prey to the racist remarks of our leaders.  If America is separated into many factions she will not survive.

Do not go along with what you know is wrong.

Pastor Martin Niemoller  said it best:

Niemöller is perhaps best remembered for the quotation:

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out–
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out–
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out–
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me–and there was no one left to speak for me.

Do not allow this to happen.    Honor God.  Respect the laws of the USA. Help each other. Stand up against the evil that has overtaken our government. 

Do not hide but  stand tall…  We can not allow  genocide, of any kind.

Show others the path to freedom must remain clear.

 

Yes all of this is my opinion  and strong belief.    I wish our leaders well , and pray for them . I thank God my opinions are protected by the US Constitution.   For now…
