Good Friday 2007

Being raised Lutheran, and learning more about Jesus Christ later in life, has always brought me special feelings about Holy Week… the last week of the earthly life of Christ.

The traditions of my past, enhanced by knowledge I’ve gained since gives me an understanding of the divinity of Christ and His ministry here on earth.

It is not like me to say or write things like this very often… I am more of a sinner than a saint, but that's exactly why the Gospel Christ resonates with me. It gives me hope, not only for this life, but for the life to come.

This very evening, over two thousand years ago, Christ sat down to His last supper, gave his disciples final instruction and then went into the Garden of Gethsemane and took upon Him the sins of all mankind. After experiencing incredible physical pain, and mental anguish, he arose from the garden only to be betrayed by his friend and then tortured throughout the night.

Friday he would be crucified, a hideous form of punishment, having his hands and feet nailed to a cross.

Sunday he would rise from the dead and change the world forever, even unto the very moment you read these words.

My knowledge helps me to understand these events, but the Holy Ghost (the same Being that provides the goose-bumps whenever I hear the truth), testifies to me that these events actually happened.

Good Friday to You!

Pelosi in a Hijab - Unbelievable!

This is a sight to behold... the leader of the House of Representatives traveling to the middle east wearing a scarf submitting to the submissive requirements of middle eastern women - Unbelievable!

The truth is she looks like she fits in perfectly and I suggest she keep her weak-butt in Syria.

Personally, as an America Citizen, I'm appalled that she in any way represents me or my country. Her divisive politics, rhetoric and now her poor wardrobe selection makes me believe even democrats cannot stand this woman.

According to a New York Post article dated March 31st 2007, "Pelosi ignored requests from both the White House and State Department officials to scrap the trip as she set off on a junket to the Middle East, including Syria - designated by the United States as a state sponsor of ism."

Of course she ignored the requests... she's the Speaker of the House and she doesn't need to listen to the White House or the State Department. Especially if her defiance emboldens her politically to party fundraisers. Her verbal assaults on the President, his policies and his character are in line with other world leaders - those who happen to also be ISTS.

It won't be long before Speaker Pelosi literally tells the President to "shove it." She already thinks that way, expresses that to others in her "posse" so it will slip sooner or later and some journalist or news anchor will lead with it the next day!

How did the Syrians feel about having the person third in line to be President of the United States (and wearing a scarf) spend tens of thousands of dollars to come shoot the breeze? According to Stan Goodenough's April 04, 2007 article on the website Jerusalem Newswire "One veteran Middle East journalist reported afterwards that Syria was 'feeling very satisfied that this visit has gone ahead over the heads of the US administration and even of the president himself.'”

Wonderful. Embolden ist leaders by legitimizing them and defying the leadership of your own country. Who is this woman?

I am convinced that until this country unites behind one another, and we break the divisive lock that has us by the throats, our enemies with gain the high ground.
