“This is my country, land of my birth.
This is my country, grandest on earth.
I pledge thee my allegiance, America the bold.
This is my country, to have and to hold!”
Becker Road 2016 1

How long has it been since you’ve heard or sung this patriotic song written in 1940 by Don Raye? I can’t remember hearing it in years. Why? Could it be it’s been buried so you won’t be reminded of all we’ve lost? Could it be we allowed people to govern who would choke on these words? Could it be we are living in the nightmare of a treasonous take-over and can’t wake up?

Whatever and wherever the truth is, it’s time to throw off the covers, splash the water of reality in our eyes, and own up to what’s happening in America. Time to remember where we came from, and where we’re going before the burnt beans on the bottom of the pot inflict all of us with their nasty taste, attitude, and texture—or is it already too late?

“What difference if I hail from North or South
Or from the East or West?
My heart is filled with love
For all of these.
I only know I swell with pride
And deep within my breast
I thrill to see Old Glory
Paint the breeze.”

Does it make a difference where you come from? No, it shouldn’t, not if you were born here. But if you were born in any other place on the globe, the attitude was, until recent years, you assimilated, or became a naturalized citizen of America by placing your hand on the Bible of God’s Truth, and pledged to be a citizen of the United States of America, full of joy to be part of the home of the free and the brave.

But not anymore. Our leaders today have been allowed to pick and choose which truth they want to place their oath in and upon—and for many it’s not The Lord God Almighty’s truth. Their physical presence is here in America, but their heart and mind insist upon bringing all the stuff they allegedly left to come to America. My question is why did they come to America? And the truth screams in my heart and head they came to hijack America and make our nation become like the one they left. That is called treason!

We have watched in our lifetime news reports of Old Glory being ripped down and burned in most every country in the world…even here in America…without there being any consequences for this vile act of treason. And as I write this, I’m not sure the pledge of allegiance is still recited in America’s classrooms? And we wonder how we find ourselves in this horrid place in time?

The Word of God says: “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it” Proverbs 22:6(NAS). But we’ve kicked God and His Word out of our schools, our homes, and even out of some churches. So, should the state we’re in be a shock to us? The majority of those attending churches in America today have a very limited knowledge and understanding of the Word of God and you can’t teach what you don’t know. You can’t possibly consume enough of the Word in an hour on Sunday morning to carry you through life’s difficulties…many church members are suffering from malnutrition of the Word. We have a generation of children right here in America who don’t have a clue who Jesus is—and we wonder why? Or maybe you don’t even wonder anymore…

“This is my country
Land of my choice
This is my country
Hear my proud voice.
I pledge thee my allegiance
America the bold
For this is my country
To have and to hold”

As I read God’s Word, I’m so grateful that our Jehovah Elohim is a merciful God and He still offers His grace when we truly repent and return to Him. We see that over and over in the Old Testament as He disciplined His children, Israel. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever—until Jesus comes again, His mercy and grace are still available when we acknowledge our sins and return to Him.

This awful virus might have been used or allowed by Him, as are these enemy agents embedded in our government, to rattle us to attention and return to The Lord God Almighty. But there are also examples in the Word of part of Israel…the northern kingdom…that never learned and they were assimilated into Assyria…never to be part of Israel again because there was no faith in them.

We stand at a crossroad—truly God’s way or the highway to hell. We have an opportunity in November to purge the enemies from this land. To demand of our government leaders they will serve The Lord God first and then serve the citizens of this land of our birth.

In our lifetime we have watched as other countries received a right to vote. We watched as people lined up to cast their ballots, some paying for that privilege with their lives. Yet we have become so calloused, in this land purchased with the blood of our fathers, that we fear or are too lazy to go to the polls, show proof of who we are to prevent those who have no right to vote in our nation, in order to cast a legal ballot for the candidates we believe will serve this country in the way our forefathers purchased with their blood.

God is not willing

It’s down to the wire folks. There are people in Washington who don’t love America … who want to make Americans melt into their burned pot of beans that have been simmering in Satan’s fire since the world began. Is that the legacy you want to leave for your children? Many of your fathers and grandfathers fought in World War II…gave their lives so you could live free of fear in the greatest nation to have ever existed on this earth…and one three month bout of a man-produced virus has sent you cowering inside, willing to risk this great gift of freedom from our God. It’s a good thing your grandfather was willing to fight two men and their countries who exterminated multiplied thousands upon thousands of Jews and people who helped them. Men who destroyed Pearl Harbor, and slaughtered thousands upon thousands of our brave soldiers on foreign shores. Soldiers we honor today.

VOTING IS A GIFT, A PRIVILEGE, AND A RIGHT you have as an American…paid for by the blood of the patriots…don’t squander that blessing or wilt in cowardice…do it to the best of your ability, remembering those who came before you, and who will live in this land after you’re gone.

What will our legacy be to them? Will they have the privilege of singing….

“THIS IS MY COUNTRY, TO HAVE AND TO HOLD?”

Mother’s Day will be hear … again. And for those of us who’ve lost our mothers, and for mothers who’ve lost their children, this is a difficult time. I ask you to think about sending cards to those mom’s who’ve lost children. We’ve not ceased to be mothers. And remember God uses the dark times in our lives to teach us the most important things about ourselves, but also the amazing wonders of who He is and who we are in Him.

MOVING THE ANCIENT BOUNDARIES

“Mama, I sure do miss you and wish I’d said ‘I love you’ more often.”

I’m sure each one of you reading this post feel the same way if your mother isn’t with you this Mother’s Day. But a blogging friend of mine sent a post this morning from “Home’s Cool,” 2009 08 04 206_edited-1entitled “What Would Your Mother Do?” And as I wrote a comment to her post it triggered memories. Memories I’d like to share, hoping we will guard our hearts every moment of every day. Because the Word tells us what comes out of the mouth comes from the heart.

My Mama had a beautiful voice and she loved to sing. And in the spring and summer, when the windows were opened, I could hear her singing a block from home. So could the neighbors. It was no secret Mama loved Jesus.

She also loved to cook and give parties…
