Welcome, To the Least supercilious blogger ever…..

From the Mountain tops to the deepest Valleys From Me to You

The aim here is to be a help for anyone experiencing storms, wind and beautiful sunsets alone. Whether patient or caregiver, family or loved one it is not good to be alone. So if you need someone to lend a hand or an ear I am ready. I am here for you.

The heart from a tree alone in a vista of bold and bright.

Two emotions deep down inside, are those of humility and pride. They produce what men may see, in the life of both you and me. A haughty spirit can reside, in a heart that’s filled with pride. A humble spirit is in you and me, when we’re filled with humility. You can lift yourself up with pride, but, God’s word will not be denied. God’s word is clear and loud. God will humble all the proud. Men may believe that they are wise, but that is only in their eyes. For all pride, my dear friend, by the Lord shall be condemned. On the cross there was no pride, as Jesus Christ our Savior died.

Fear can be found in loneliness, fear often masquerades as worry, anxiety, even selfishness. In our aging we experience many changes physically, socially, metabolically and loss. We worry, but really it is fear, we are afraid of the unknown. Worry is sin, it is mentioned often in the Bible for us to avoid it. Each day is sufficient for itself. I recall a quip made to me one day by one of my sons. He was being flip most likely but it resonated with me. He said ‘A hundred years from now no one will care or have even heard of…..(insert here what worries you). It’s true.

Also, anxiety is confused with worry, really it is fear disguised by our enemy. We fear our loss of purpose, loss of vigor, and on and on…. Male or female. Could even fall into the envy, jealousy trap. That the Bible tells us can rot our bones. Our fall and winter years are blessings. Envy of others, younger or experiencing fuller lives is a road we must not travel. That road can lead to ruin your spiritual hunger. That envy of others breeds a destructive spirit and brings on chaos. We must avoid envy and jealousy at all costs. Fear in and of itself is not bad, it is not sin. Worry, anxiety, self centered, envy, jealousy are sin. Which can ruin lives, lead to self-pity. That sin can cause a type of spiritual leukemia.

Moving in and living in fear is again harmful to our relationships and is a signal all is not right with our place near God. Worry is sin, if you’re a believer.

As in most of this list all of these are human traits that Jesus understands and has promised to guide us through, lift us through and give us renewed strength and purpose. The sin is in our doubting Him. Doubting His willingness or ability, that comes from the evil one whispering on the wind. We must not believe it.

Men especially fear the loss of their profession. They pride themselves in their successes, accomplishments, finances, friends. They place their self-worth in within their work. Women fear equally the loss of family. Loss of position, being needed. We need to nurture. We take pride in our children, in the people they become. But they grow up and out and our self-worth makes us also ponder, what’s next. Could I have done better? The answer is yes, we all could have and even today because we are not finished. Both genders can share these changes individually depending on our earlier lives. The fears of these new changes are actually tricks of the evil one to keep us from seeing the new opportunities Christ has in store for us.

There is a plan. Wait for it, look for it, expect it. We must not let our pride or our ego’s get involved. Discouragement often shows up if we lose sight of the fact that there is a plan, a purpose for each of us, we must not lose sight of the big picture, and stay as close as possible to our community of faith.

Christ had displayed for us humility, As the Savior of all humanity. The eternal God far from weak, was to all men humble and meek. God’s example is for all to behold, His Word will not grow old. Friend pride can be a hindrance To the life Christ has given to us. Pride will never be used by God, but shall be judged. By His rod. Allow Christ’s humble Spirit within, then you shall be used by Him. As only a meek and humble life, truly displays the power of Christ.

I believe that God is good always and in in all ways.. Thankfully, I have lived long enough to have shared so many blessings. To have experienced some of His greatness and goodness personally. We live in potentially discouraging days. But arresting discouragement or fear before it ever gets on the property of our heart and mind will keep it from taking over and stopping the work God is doing in and through us.

‘They know they’ve been caught’: Limbaugh nails Dems on Trump spying | WND

Truth2Freedom's Blog

Democratic senators on Wednesday made sure the nation knows that “there was political bias, there was personal hatred bias” in the FBI’s abuse of the FISA system to investigate the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential race.

How?

They’re “making it obvious here by harping on it.”

Talk-radio host was commenting on Wednesday’s hearing in the Senate featuring Inspector General Michael Horowitz.

His investigation found a massive list of failures on the part of the Obama administration regarding its investigation into the Trump campaign in 2016. He also said he found no evidence of political bias, but then without subpoena power he could only investigate what people voluntarily told him.

Rush Limbaugh explained the realities of the situation.

“So [Sen.] Lindsey Graham was great in his opening statement exposing all of this. Then it got to questioning of Horowitz. ‘I think, well, there’s no bias, no documentary evidence, poor Carter…

The New Gnostics in Today’s Church — Lighthouse Trails Inc

(Author of the new release, War Against the Saints)

I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth. (1 John 2:21)

The church is undergoing perhaps her final assault from within, as she has been beset with a new wave of Gnostics who have entered in.

What is Gnosticism? One definition of Gnosticism states:

Gnosticism was built on Greek philosophy that taught matter was evil and the Spirit was good. . . . So-called “Christian Gnostics” said since matter was evil, God could not really incarnate in a human body; He only appeared in human form and only appeared to suffer, but basically, it was an illusion. . . .

Prior to Christianity, the Gnostics taught that man is composed of body, soul, and spirit. The body and the…

The Return of the Conqueror

And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war. His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself. He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. (19:11–13)

As it did in 4:1, heaven opened before John’s wondering eyes. But unlike 4:1, heaven opens this time not to let John in, but to let Jesus out. The time has come at last for the full, glorious revelation of the sovereign Lord. This is the time to which all of Revelation (as well as all of redemptive history) has been pointing, the time of which Jesus Himself spoke…

What The “Expert” Panel Should Have Told You About Impeachment… But Didn’t | ZeroHedge News

Truth2Freedom's Blog

Authored by Rob Natelson via The Epoch Times,

This short essay does what the House Judiciary Committee’s panel of “expert witnesses” did not successfully do.

First, it explains the meaning of the Constitution’s “high Crimes and Misdemeanors” standard. Next, it discusses how that standard applies to President Donald Trump’s interactions with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Finally, it details the kind of evidence the House Judiciary Committee should gather to determine whether the president committed an impeachable offense.

Many phrases in the Constitution—such as “necessary and proper,” “Privileges and Immunities,” and “Convention for proposing Amendments”—carry specialized 18th century meanings not obvious to the modern reader. Recall that most of the leading Founders were lawyers and the Constitution is a legal document. Some of these phrases derive from 18th century law.

Therefore, to understand them you have to consult 18th century legal materials in addition to better-known sources such as the…

Rudy Giuliani

President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani put the DC swamp on notice on Saturday.

Giuliani reminded the DC swamp that he previously cleaned up mafia in New York and asked them, “Do you honestly think I’m intimidated?”

He also said he’s going to bring out a massive pay-to-play scheme under the Obama Administration that will “devastate the Democrat Party” — a scheme that Giuliani said the Washington press covered up for years!

RUDY GIULIANI: “I discovered a pattern of corruption that the Washington press covered up for years! I’m also going to bring out a massive pay-for-play scheme under the Obama Administration that will devastate the Democrat Party. Do you honestly think I’m intimidated?”

“The Mafia couldn’t kill me so NO, I am not worried about the swamp press!” Giuliani said in a follow-up tweet.

Giuliani presented a letter to Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham with evidence…

Franklin Graham on President Donald Trump: He ‘Defends the Faith’ | LifeZette

A wonderful gift to announce Christ and His love for a child who have likely never heard of Him.

Truth2Freedom's Blog

Rev. Franklin Graham did not mince words when he appeared on “The Eric Metaxas Radio Show” recently.

He was there to discuss his charity, Samaritans Purse, and also the Chick-fil-A mess, after the company caved to the LGBTQ mob, in my view, by deciding not to donate to certain organizations any longer.

Related: About Chick-fil-A

But toward the end of the interview, the discussion turned to politics — and Rev. Graham has some very strong (and correct) feelings on President Donald Trump and also the people who oppose him.

Metaxas said, “It’s a very bizarre situation to be living in a country where some people seem to exist to undermine the president of the United States. It’s just a bizarre time for most Americans.”

Graham suggested there was a spiritual root to the situation: “Well, I believe it’s almost a demonic power that is trying [this].”

He’s spot on.

Afflictions, & other good things?

A life interrupted might be just what the DR. ordered. Photo by Pixabay

Might an affliction be a good thing? Well, yours maybe!

Eons ago the birth of my firstborn son was the equivalent of heavenly bliss. Even though going through the fiery furnace to have him had caused me to scream,” stop, I don’t want to do this anymore! Take it back!” I told my husband I hated him for doing this to me while he complained of the hard arm chair he had to sit on, poor guy was uncomfortable. I screamed and yelled and struck out at anyone who came near me, I slapped my nurse. Well actually I slapped her back. Apparently, she had become rattled at the commotion I was making and decided slapping me would correct my hysteria. I was not hysterical, I was 19! I was giving birth naturally to a breach baby who liked his home and did not want to leave its comforts. This was also the 48th hour of my body demanding it wanted to be rid of this little urchin.

Not your usual beautiful, engaging setting of pure joy, love and anticipation I had always envisioned. But that’s sort of the way things work for me a great deal of the time.

I should have been enraged at the doctor who saw me through this pregnancy and now this labor from hell, not my husband or the nurse. The doctor who did not inform me my baby was breach! The others were collateral damage in this labor of not so much fun and love. I kept thinking the doctor had medications, gas, and could end this horror if he just would. So I tried to keep the peace with him. I begged, and he would leave the room and tell me almost, you’re almost there. Where is there? I didn’t know how I got there and felt here should have been enough! But nooooooo, there, was still out there somewhere. There, where I needed to go was called 10, and I was stuck here at 9. Close enough in my mind, but nooooo. Not for Dr. Sortor and nurse witch with a b.

This is but One example of affliction for a beautiful thing. It was such a beautiful thing that I did it three more times. Three boys and one girl. All were breach but one. Lucky me. No, really, I was blessed since we were told that my husband might not have been able to have children. A Doctor at the VA Hospital in northern Alaska told him that.

Then in example two, this lasted 16 years for me and included that same firstborn son. Let’s call him Craig, cause that’s his name. When he was about two and an adorable little chubbiekin toddler, who took after his father in stubbornness and love of staying put, the affliction began. One of those kind that your child has but you would rather have it, to spare him. He began having seizures. Randomly. Scary as hell. After the first three which included ambulance rides to the closest hospital, where we were told repeatedly it must be from a virus. Neither the staff in the ER nor upon admission his regular pediatrician could come to any agreement on what was causing these huge spiked fevers out of no where. That set off a cascade of ugly things including grand mal seizures. On the fifth visit I refused to take him home with that so-called virus. I didn’t buy that excuse any longer, no one could give me an example of any other toddlers who went through this. Besides, I was scared, actually terrified. Terrified to leave him alone, no sitters or caretakers, terrified every hour of every day that it would happen again, and the last one the hospital staff said was a doozie. He should not have another one like that or permanent damage could occur. Or worse. What would you have done if it was your child? Well, I refused to take him home, and prayed and prayed. People were praying for us all over town. The doctor on shift that day was not happy with me. A young Mom being obstinate and demanding answers. Finally, when it was obvious we were really not leaving, a nurse brought in a form for me to sign waiving the hospital of any liability for putting my son through medical tests that were deemed unnecessary. I signed and the tests began. Within 3 hours I had a phone call to the nurse’s desk from the doctor. They found my sons problem.

Now part of me was tickled pink but the more he explained what they found the tickle faded away. It dissolved into black horror. Craig’s left kidney did not have a ureter. This as explained to me was a vital part of our anatomy. There was no way for the urine that the working kidney was making to escape. His left kidney, a balloon like organ they said was over inflated. And continuing to grow. It was now 3 times its normal size with infection. In my infinite need to find a solution to this problem I suggested they just put one in. A ureter, put one in, or a hose or tube or maybe ????? It was not possible, was the reply. (in 1964 medicine had not yet evolved into transplants, DNA, cells, organ exchanges or the like). The organ filled with infection could not be cut out, the risk of the infection getting into his blood stream was too dangerous. We saw specialists, I lost 40 pounds (18.14 kilogram), chasing between home, my parents home, to spend time with my little daughter and back to walking the hospital corridors. I hardly saw my new little daughter, and we were going broke. Praying now specifically. We were sent home with a long list of instructions, rattled psyches and a huge empty bottle to keep track of Craig’s urination proceeds to be stored in our refrigerator. Until early adolescence if he survived that long. And of course prescriptions more prescriptions and specialist appointments. We were to see that Craig had an IVP (intravenous pyleogram) every 6 months. We prayed.

Going broke, Doctors, Hospitals, Medications, Tests, Caretakers

To cut a long story short, (your welcome) Craig did not die, he still has that working kidney, and the urine it made from the day we first prayed specifically to Our compassionate Lord and Savior just disintegrated. That left kidney was still three times its normal size with the same infection since the day it was found. It hadn’t enlarged even more than it was expected to due to its adding more urine to it daily. Had that kidney not been working it could have been removed, but it was against all protocol to remove a working organ. Let alone a highly infectious one. He still had no left ureter to remove the daily urine. God’s answer to my why prayers, why don’t you just heal him? It was obvious to everyone familiar to this case that an outside force (God) was at work. Craig was a walking talking miracle. Doctors had been certain Craig’s growth would be stunted, he would be medically unsound and pick up every bug out there, and would have had to have that kidney removed by 6years of age at the latest. At the worst he would have developed a blood infection and die from the infection in that kidney. The AMA made a video at Milwaukee’s Childrens hospital of Craig at 13 years old. A case study at that years Medical convention. God’s answer to my prayer was the same to me as it had been to Paul when he had asked for his affliction to be removed. “My Grace IS sufficient for you”. So we were good with that. Until Craig was 16. By this age Craig was 6’5″ tall, and not ever sickly.(unless he was trying to get out of going to school). He pushed me at times to my limits in his physical stunts and athletic tendencies.

Craig was now asking to know why God hadn’t just healed him?. I explained that the last time I asked God about that again, The Lord replied it was so that #1 I would stay close to Him, stay on my knees and my love for my son would do that. I could be a prideful wanderer, so for my good I was afflicted. #2 reason was that when the time was right, and when Craig was ready He would heal him. Meanwhile, His Grace IS sufficient. When Craig was 17 he accepted the Lord as his savior. At his next IVP (yes he was still having the tests regularly) there was a perfectly normal size left kidney and a beautiful new gorgeous working left ureter. God had finished healing Him. In His time.

I learned how much God loved us by the affliction He allowed us to have. After all it was minuscule compared to the affliction His Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ endured for us. His affliction bought us A beautiful good thing. He paid for us Salvation’s price. He made us heirs to His Kingdom and Blessings. All we need do is ask.And believe.

Yes…….there is more. More afflictions, more miracles, more Blessings. Many in hindsight, which is always the best someone said. I don’t think I agree with that, but I get where it’s coming from. But to live in the miracle, in the here and now? Now that is best, or better or superior! IMHO. To follow in another post there is another. This ones with the number 2 son, (who by another miracle came into existence. Did you read the post about my Plantar Warts? That’s another one, it’s on my blog page. That story was the first encounter with affliction for good, you might say.

His ways are not our ways! God is love.

Let’s chat soon. If you enjoy these, or the stories of Art, Interior Design, Healthcare activism follow me and you will receive them as they come. Recently I have gone back to doing some painting and those will be found on the site also. At this time God has me quite afflicted and alone a great deal. He has told me it is part of the plan…so I am waiting. Not always as patiently as I should, pray for me it helps more than you know.
