“If you are suffering from a bad man’s injustice,
forgive him—lest there be two bad men.”
(lovely treasures found along a morning walk /Julie Cook / 2021)
Each and every passing day I want to spout off my take on the
latest madness besieging our lives…
The idiocy of man…and woman…all playing out here in the US.
And each and every idiocy deserves its own epistle.
But there simply is no time in which to keep up with the
turning of the surreal wheels.
As soon as I could write about one thing, something else pops up
and the popping just keeps popping.
Critical Race Theory
Woke School Boards
Wokeness in general
US Representatives and their big ignorant mouths
Egos in general
A US president who, for our own saving grace, needs simply to
sail off to the sunset…taking that wife and son with him.
A vice president who is a silly little girl who simply needs
to be taken away…
A culture hellbent on canceling most of the life we thought
we knew and loved….
The Media which really is no example of what true journalism is all about.
Vaccines and masks—nuff said
The Squad of imbeciles
adults being babies
feelings…nothing more than feelings…
on and on it goes…
there is no time to start on one topic before another topic
steals the spolight.
and wouldn’t you know it…
The Mayor and Sheriff are coming to spend the majority of the week
with Mom and Da while Mommy and Dada go on a much needed bit of R & R
Which in turn means you must pray for Mom and Da!!!!
Heck…let’s just all pray now–cause prayer is about all any of us
still really have left…
I think I’ll just take my chances with the ensuing heat, humidity
and cicadas—at least those three things are brutally honest
“To love God’s will in consolations is a good love when it is truly
God’s will we love and not the consolation wherein it lies.
Still, it is a love without opposition, repugnance, or effort.
Who would not love so worthy a will in so agreeable a form?
To love God’s will in His commandments, counsels,
and inspirations is the second degree of love and it is much more perfect.
It carries us forward to renounce and give up our own will,
and enables us to abstain from and forbear many pleasures, but not all of them.
To love suffering and affliction out of love for God
is the summit of most holy charity.
In it nothing is pleasant but the divine will alone;
there is great opposition on the part of our nature;
and not only do we forsake all pleasures,
but we embrace torments and labors.”
St. Francis de Sales, p. 76
