As America celebrates Memorial Day Weekend -- with the scent and buzz of barbecue in the air -- we have much to be concerned about. Local elections are on the horizon and we'd better choose carefully -- and prayerfully. We need to consider what took place in the last national election, and what has happened since. Many people find themselves saying, "I don't believe this is happening!" But it is.
Well, that would take pages and pages to write about, and I'm smart enough to leave that with those who have eloquent expertise such as the American Family Association. But let's just say it gets weirder and weirder. If you don't believe me, check out American politics on snopes.com and see what's true and what isn't.
For example, it is true that they're building a Mosque right next to where the NY Trade Towers were -- where the 911 tragedy took place. Hard to believe isn't it? But it's true.
Still, I said I would write about it here so I won't. (Otherwise I'd also have to write about the increasing earthquakes, volcano eruptions, oil spill etc. to put it all in context.) We need to be vigilant and wise, think hard and pray. What is happening in this country is NOT normal. But, given what the Bible predicts will happen before Jesus' second coming, I guess it's to be expected. So, in that respect -- and only in that respect -- woo hoo!!!!!
Now, back to Memorial Day Weekend, this is a good time to pray for our military -- those that seek to protect our country's freedom -- and to pray for their families. Read my latest article on this subject in The Examiner.
Happy Memorial Day weekend to all.
