Hmmm… I Am a Woman

Today we hear much reporting about the women’s march on Washington. At the risk of showing my ignorance, I do not understand the agenda. According to their web site,

The Women’s March on Washington will send a bold message to our new government on their first day in office, and to the world that women’s rights are human rights.

Hmmm… I am a woman. I am a member of the human race and my rights as an American are covered by The Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights.

Hmmm… Is fear the motivation behind this “movement”; fear Planned Parenthood will face defunding and Roe v Wade could be reversed.

Hmmm… I wonder if the 2017 March for Life event scheduled  next week press will receive as much press coverage as that of the protests over the last few weeks/months. Oh wait, so silly of me. I forgot. Life is considered disposable not valuable. Right? (Psalm 139:1-18)

An after-hmmm… The organization’s title, planned parenthood, is an oxymoron.

Hmmm… Will You Tell?

Drafted by Thomas Jefferson between June 11 and June 28, 1776, the Declaration of Independence is at once the nation’s most cherished symbol of liberty…

In a few days, we Americans will gather across our nation at parades, picnics, and fireworks displays to celebrate our declaration of independence from our mother country, England. While planning for such enjoyable activities, my mind wandered to another symbol of freedom, The Cross.

How many celebrants do not realize they are captives of Satan’s deathly grip, yet have true freedom at the foot of The Cross? (Colossians 2:13-15) How many do not realize because someone never took the time the tell them? How many of us will take the time? (Matthew 28:19-20, Romans 10:14-15)

 

 

Pursuit of Happiness

“If You’re Happy and You Know It.” When reading the title of this children’s song, does it singsong through your brain, do your hands want to clap together, or do the corners of your mouth want to turn upward? If your answer is yes, you are not alone. Happiness, a seemingly elusive state people are forever seeking. According to  the unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America July 4, 1776, “all men are
created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” The pursuit of happiness, hmmm… what does this mean? Is it a wild chase after the latest gadgets, gizmos, and money? If this were true, celebrities, corporate executives and millionaires should be extremely content while wearing perpetual smiles on their faces and clapping their hands. (Job 31:25) If the heart is the very center of personality, as Hebrew culture believes, the center of the emotions as well as the mind, including the thinking process, then isn’t the pursuit of happiness an inward journey? If this is true, then the inward journey does not depend on the things we possess or life circumstances going well; it depends on the Person we come to know during the journey, the source of true contentment. (Psalm 146:5, 2 Corinthians 12:10, Philippians 4:11 KJV) How happy are you today?
