Theme From A Summer Place (1960)
My wife is supposed to come home tomorrow so I will pick her up in the afternoon. I hope things turn out better than the last time, and I will be watching over her more and being more protective. But Lord knows that she has a 'mind of her own'.. lol. I told her that I want her to wear a small whistle around her neck so she can 'call' me in case she needs help for anything in the future. That's just the opposite of what I thought men were supposed to do for women when they wanted something-- about 40 years ago, but I have changed. 'If a tree don't bend with the wind-- it breaks in half...'
I think that I am also learning some 'common sense' from 'The Dawn's Early Light' book, and it's funny that I am learning all this good stuff now-- when it surely could have helped me in my relationships and goofy mindsets years ago! Another reason that this short 197 page book is harder for me is that it 'lays open my heart' and points out the inner reasons for MY actions [and mis-actions], screw ups and selfish reasoning's as even the author describes of himself-- so it brings him down to earth. This just may help me reason and explain better some things with a few people that I care for, so they won't repeat the mistakes that I made. Or perhaps I may have been so stubborn, proud and myopic to pick this stuff up from my bible studies in years past. But sometimes we need someone to 'break things down' and paraphrase the scriptures to us.... or just perhaps [I am reluctant to say] that a simpler Bible translation might be better suited for some of us. Like I said before, I love the KJV [King James Version], but I also enjoy the NASB [New American Standard Bible] and a few other translations like the Amplified Bible, just to compare notes.
The other unexpected benefit from being alone in the house is that I was forced to do more on my own, and there by get more exercise, limber up, with more mobility and movement-- and freedom.
Strawberries and Bing Cherries are in season up here in WI, or at least they are cheap in the stores now.
One Vet just emailed me that 'we are in for a hard landing', and that reminded me how helicopters DON'T LIKE A HARD LANDING... lol, as the ship gets broke and people get hurt. I don't WANT to sound like a pessimist or negative, but other nations who are Socialist are telling the US that we are headed toward a hard landing, much worse than we think, with hard times and shortages that we have not seen since the Depression in the 1930's. But maybe the Lord knows this will draw in the last remnants of people sitting on the fence before His drops His hammer.
I have noticed that many of my old friends/ bloggers are not posting so much these days, and |I know that they are BUSY. I hope that you all feel better and are well.
I JUST want to post this FOR THE RECORD. For ALL individuals, Groups, Religious blocks who call themselves "Christians|" ... LOL. YOU all bare a "community responsibility"--- the 52% of "Americans who voted for this immoral monkey!! How will you answer God when His Son soon comes back to Earth with a sword in Hand ??
In a presidential proclamation on the White House website, Barack Obama has lauded what he calls "the determination and dedication" of the LGBT movement by proclaiming June as "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month."
"The LGBT rights movement has achieved great progress," Obama states in the official proclamation, "but there is more to be done. LGBT youth should feel safe to learn without the fear of harassment, and LGBT families and seniors should be allowed to live their lives with dignity and respect."
The proclamation, released on Monday, credits the LGBT movement with being a factor in more Americans who ascribe to those groups "living their lives openly today than ever before."

The president also takes pride in being the first U.S. chief executive to appoint "openly LGBT" candidates to Senate-confirmed positions in the first 100 days of an administration.
He uses the proclamation to emphasize LGBT-related initiatives that he intends to pursue in the future -- both domestically and internationally.
"I have joined efforts at the United Nations to decriminalize homosexual around the world," he states. "Here at home, I continue to support measures to bring the full spectrum of equal rights to LGBT Americans."
Among those measures he lists "hate crimes" laws, civil unions, discrimination in the workplace, adoption rights, and ending the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy "in a way that strengthens our Armed Forces and our national security."
Pro-family activist says Peter LaBarbera it is sad, but not surprising, that President Obama has chosen to issue a proclamation celebrating homosexuality. The president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality says Obama is pandering to homosexual political activists.
"Homosexuality is nothing to be proud of -- bottom line," says LaBarbera. "The fact is people have left the lifestyle, people have overcome homosexuality [with God's help] -- I think that's something to be proud of...."
LaBarbera warns of the repercussions of the president's pursuit of expanded rights for those who are confused about their sexual orientation.
"This proclamation talks about the entire radical homosexual agenda that Obama supports -- including homosexualizing the U.S. military [and] federal so-called 'rights' based on homosexuality, which will impinge on the religious freedoms and freedom of conscience of other Americans."
Christians, he believes, must reach out to homosexuals with the message of the gospel.
