The Range of Customers

Amazingly, the extremes of customers visited my check out line yesterday. One was surprisingly angelic and seemed to be destined for sanctity. (for all I know.) Within 10 minutes, I was being yelled at because I was putting newspapers in grocery bags. I had to bite my tongue to keep from laughing at his anger. I’m immune to people who resort to raising their voices to make their point over some ridiculous issue. Regardless of the way they treat me, I always try to deal with them in a respectful manner. The reason for this is simple. Not only would I not intend to harm someone, but moreover it comes down to dealing with others via the “Golden Rule”. If I did in fact harm someone, I myself would be remorseful for my actions. I would instantly put myself in their shoes and remember when someone treated me in a negative manner.

Kind Failures v. Unkind Miracles

I love spiritual, moral quotes by St. Mother Theresa. Her comment in the comic is one of her actual quotes. Meanwhile, Trump is just an easy fall guy.

I have made countless mistakes in my life and when I read a similar quote by her hinging on the intent of action a heavy weight that had been on my heart was lifted. Two decades earlier I worked in Nicaraguan refugee camps. I returned to the U.S. after only three months of a three year assignment with post-traumatic stress disorder. My failure was kind. My intent was kind. My actions were kind. My assignment was kind. The only unkind problem was how I couldn’t forgive myself for not lasting the full assignment.

Only Caucasian Males Are Mass Shooters

[I discovered a stereotype I held. Since the 1970s these perpetrators are 55% Caucasian and the race of the others is aligned with the overall race of the U.S. population. Plus not all (most) are mentally ill. There still needs to be a law preventing me from getting one.]

What has happened to the faith in this country? Please pray for any racists who forgot that Jesus is the prince of peace, not hate, and that Jesus came for the Jews and the gentiles, plus not one particular race. Many saints were once sinners and needed to be reformed or go down to the river to be reborn. Praying for the racist in the U.S. will only help unify all areas of these UNITED States and bring peace to all these in our land. [Assuming of course that the racist is a Christian. If not, whatever higher power and their activities are applicable.]

Jesus Builds Bridges, NOT Walls

This is only Satanic. A wall designed to keep starving, pheasants from safety?

Different types of refugees

There are different types of refugees. Displaced people (refugees) stay in their own country. Just asking for prayers, especially after the El Paso massacre. People don’t walk 1k miles without a good reason.

The 2,147 mile long walk (& why)

If you want to know why so many Central Americans are flooding towards the U.S.’s southern border, go to the government themselves.

In a nutshell, it’s increasing socioeconomic inequality coupled with a growing youthful population who have no gainful employment opportunities. Many youth will drift towards one of two gangs, the MS-13 (Mara Salvatrucha) and the M-18 (18th Street gang). These gangs essentially engage in turf wars and battle over transitory routes for people, drugs, and arms through the Northern Triangle of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. Also, a large section of this area is in the Central American Dry Corridor, which is highly susceptible to irregular rain fall. According to a 2017 United Nations World Food programme, repeated droughts since 2014 have destroyed crops and resulted “in levels of food insecurity [that] had not been previously seen in the region.”

You can wonder anywhere

Just having fun.

If you apply your imagination & slight effort, to find fabulous things alongside a swampy flooded field that’s filled with flies.
