Agios Trumpoupoulous, Patron Saint of Twitter

Agios Trumpoupolous, Patron Saint of Twitter

Craft day here at the old folks home. After breakfast and my nap, Kristen set out my paints for me. With the recent sainting of Mother Teresa and having just read an article on Trump’s supposed Catholic problem, I went with a religious theme; Agios Trumpoupolous – agios in Greek meaning saint or holy.

Cherubs nest in his hair. Sort of. (It’s more the case that he routinely gets all tangled up on Twitter.)

Saint Donald has done two miracles (besides going a whole day without putting his foot in his mouth). First, he has done a long, long overdue end-run around the media who think they get to decide for America. Second, he has been nominated entirely without the help of the political money players in both parties who traditionally buy the candidate they want us to have. Love seeing the political money machine so fit to be tied.

For the artsy people out there I’ll share that I created the halo with my cereal bowl. And, I blended my oranges to more perfectly match his skin color. His hair is modeled after the streets of gold.

Say your prayers that I don’t come up with an idea to depict Hillary. For sure it would be Dantean.

Anyone else notice the Great Meme War that is underway on Facebook these days? I rather enjoy it and even post ones that sting me a bit. (A meme – for those of you who are secluded from popular culture in some remote cave somewhere – is an image with text, typically humorous and satirical in nature that spreads rapidly over social media.)

Last night I posted this one:

Shortly thereafter a Facebook friend countered with one of his own:

And that set me off on yet another rant about how war isn’t working.  Enjoy…

More slaves in the world today than ever in the history of the world. More oppression, genocides pop up every few years, nazism is back with a vengeance. We’ve spent most of my adult life at war in the Middle East and the world is not safer and there are a loads more people who hate us. With every bomb we plant a seed that produces ten more people who hate us. War hasn’t worked and isn’t working. It is not our only alternative. The same handful of international banking families fund both sides of our wars. Of course their sons and daughters don’t spill their blood. We don’t need to spend a billion on an experimental drone balloon that floats away from it’s tethers on its own and gets ruined landing three states away in a grove of trees. Selectively fiscal conservatives are anything but fiscally conservative when it comes to defense spending. They act like there is no waste to cut and that we have an unlimited supply of tax dollars for new wars. One week we are in the sky-is-falling-fiscal-emergency mode closing down national parks for the weekend because of a government shutdown and we can’t afford to pay a park ranger. The next week we somehow miraculously have a billion NEW dollars to send to some country in a never ended civil war and a trillion more to build a new ship for ourselves. We have no confidence our commander in chief is even on our team. Vets are treated like crap when they return but Congress gives themselves raises and a whole different set of benefits. We spent billions arm the wrong people (while moving toward the disarming of our own populace), we only make defense contractors rich spending double, triple and even ten times what should be spent on national defense – and btw, I think service men and women need a doubling of pay. And don’t read this as any indictment on the men and women who serve so sacrificially. I’m the product of a Vietnam vet who came home screwed up (a book called Vietnam wives descries what it was like to grow up in our home after the war). My dad resented our government the rest of his life, deeply. Did that war work? How about any of the ones we’ve been in the last twenty-five years?

Just saying.

 

Of recent, my blogging energies have been diverted to the LIFE ISSUE. However, this morning I find myself pondering some headlines. Just pretend we are at the breakfast table, drinking some good joe, reading the paper. Your thoughts are welcome.

THIS JUST IN: MILWAUKEE – A Milwaukee man was accused of shooting his lawn mower because it wouldn’t start. Keith Walendowski, 56, was charged with felony possession of a short-barreled shotgun or rifle and misdemeanor disorderly conduct while armed. According to the criminal complaint, Walendowski said he was angry because his Lawn Boy wouldn’t start Wednesday morning. He told police quote, “I can do that, it’s my lawn mower and my yard so I can shoot it if I want.” A woman who lives at Walendowski’s house reported the incident. She said he was intoxicated. Walendowski could face up to an $11,000 fine and six years and three months in prison if convicted.

If your horse won’t get up, what do you do? Shoot it. I think a man ought to be able to shoot his own lawnmover in his own yard (if he lives outside of town). This made me smile, maybe it will you. Those of you who have been around me know that I like to shoot stuff. Deep down inside every man and boy is a desire to shoot something. Gals, don’t try to understand it. God put it there – it’s a part of that whole protect and provide thing. Mix it with a little anger and alcohol and I’d advise you hide everything that doesn’t start or move fast enough.

I offer this parody to compliment what I’ve already written on the Florida Healing Outpouring, Todd Bentley and all the anonymous heresy hunters online who stay in the shadows slinging arrows (Ps 64) at others in the Bride of Christ. (Shadows remember, are a form of darkness).

In any case, someone sent me what it might look like if the same types presently picking on Todd Bentley and the Florida Outpouring were to turn their guns toward Psalm 23. Enjoy. Who knows who wrote this but I thank them. In case you are wondering, the reference to “straining gnats” comes from Matthew 23:24 – “You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel.”

Dear brother,

Thank you for sending us the questionable document. We are always glad to examine any teaching materials that may adversely affect the Church. We do think that this material is dangerous and certainly want to warn the Body of Christ concerning its subtle false doctrines. Read the rest of this entry »

My good friend Randy spotted this one. I love his title – Jesus, we plead your blood… over the unleaded?

There’s a great video clip on this over at FoxNews called Divine Intervention but I can’t get it to embed or link here.

Oh God, our hearts are full but our pockets are empty. God, deliver us from these high gas prices. O Lord, these high gas prices, bring them down O Father.”

God is the only one we can turn to at this point,” says Praying at the Pump founder Rocky Twyman. “Our leaders don’t seem to be able to do anything about it. The prices keep soaring and soaring.”

At least they aren’t praying… “God, give me gas.” In case you are wondering, CATG will be taking a pass on this one. Crazy I know, but we rounded up some gas money and sent a busload to our state Supreme Court in Pierre at 5:30 AM this morning to contend all day in prayer for mercy on our nation for shedding the innocent blood of the unborn. When God answers that prayer, his favor will fall on the nation again and our economy will turn around. Until then, carpool. Or, trust him to make your last gallon go 100 miles – I have a great testimony where God did just that!

Note to the faithful going to pray at the pump… leave the vigil candles back at the church.

We’re in revival mode this week here at CATG! Thanks to Jerry & Marilyn for this little gem of an idea on how to wake up the church!
