"The light at the end of the tunnel is near.  We are rounding the turn," Trump told a group of fans Friday at an event in Fort Myers, Florida. "Don't listen to the cynics and angry partisans and pessimists."  Meanwhile - daily infections are hitting record high numbers worldwide and in 21 states in the US.  Not sure what "tunnel" trump is talking about...82,89,58,0,W

Path of the wicked...

Sun, 2020/10/11 - 1:43pm

Proverbs 4:14 Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men. 15 Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away. 16 For they sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to fall. 17 For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence. 18 But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day. 19 The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble

Pandemic Saturday

Over 2 million new cases reported worldwide in the past week - a new record high.  Meanwhile President Trump marked his return to the White House last Monday after a weekend hospital stay for coronavirus treatment with this message for the American people: "Don't be afraid of Covid. Don't let it dominate your life."  The president's tweet left many friends and families of coronavirus victims disgusted and angered. How could they not let a virus that snatched their loved one from them dominate their lives?  Amanda Kloots, wife of Broadway star Nick Cordero, who fought the virus for 95 days and died, was among those mourning the death of a loved one who took issue with the president's comments.

That no flesh should glory in his presence...

Sun, 2020/10/04 - 1:20pm

 1 Corinthians 1:27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; 28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: 29 That no flesh should glory in his presence. 30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: 31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

Schadenfreude Saturday

Sat, 2020/10/03 - 1:57pm

As he continually seeks to insert rival Joe Biden's health and mental capacity into the presidential campaign, Trump has voiced escalating concern within his inner circle about how it would appear if he contracted the coronavirus and has insisted on steps to protect himself while he ignores protecting the American people...demanding these protections even as he refuses to wear a mask in public and agitates for large campaign rallies where the virus could spread despite health officials warnings.  During the presidential debate on Tuesday, Trump mocked Joe Biden for frequently wearing a mask.  Two days later, Trump tested positive after exhibiting Covid-19 symptoms and was whisked away by helicopter on Friday to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for treatment.
