The Gloves are Off


The past few years I have been so careful to be politically correct, whether it applied to politics, religion, race, etc. Well, the gloves are off. Somewhere along the way, trying to be all things to all people, I have lost myself and my values. And - my sense of humor!
I am going to try to break the mold I slunk (slinked?) into and revisit what it's like to post without concern of hurting peoples' feelings. Now, I would never intentionally say or do anything to cause anyone to be injured by my words...but I'm going to try to have more fun with this blasted blog!
So, asking for your forgiveness in advance....

From: The Wittenburg Door

"I will instruct you and teach you the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you." Psalm 32:8

I walked out the back door into the snow with the dog, and there in the
melty bits where the flagstone showed through was a perfect map of Africa.
I thought, "Is this a sign from the heavens? Perhaps I am meant to be a
missionary to somewhere in Africa!" Then the dog wee-weed and the map
became more like a Pennsylvania-shape, and I contemplated the deeper
meanings of God's direction and care. And then I thought: "I forgot to take
my medications today."


And then I was at peace.

(Just a brief word of explanation: I would never make light of scripture. But
all you have to do is look at the crap on e bay (the face of Jesus on toast, etc.)
and the crap (unfortunately) in Bible book stores, and realize how "dumbed
down" Christianity is becoming. C'mon, Veggie Tales??? What's wrong with
the original?)

All America is becoming "dumbed down" Gracie. I've been noticing that ever since we were required to be politically correct. The other day I saw a T-shirt that said:
English only
Whites only. There was a strike through Whites. The shirt was about illegal aliens. A perfect example. :)
