The Precipice

When I consider that my present pain
seems to be a culmination,
having risen gradually to its current din
I cannot help but wonder...

At how many points along the way
might help have come, 
or had it even arrived already,
and I failed to avail myself of it.

For God's grace surely has gone before me.
I have experienced His love.
He has solved countless dilemmas on my behalf,
for which I have thanked Him, and enjoyed His sweet fellowship.

So why do I now ask Him the why's and wherefore's
of this stabbing feeling in my heart?

How to Fix our Health Care System

Does everyone understand that our current health care system, in which the health care providers all get together with the insurance companies to work out how much will be paid for what, is simply a giant system of price-fixing?  The insurers and the providers all get together at conventions in places like Las Vegas, and decide what will cost how much.  There's all kinds of give-here, take-there.

The Persistence of God's Love

We Christians know that God loves us. So much so, that ninety percent of us take God's love for granted. Face it, Christian, you take God's love for granted. You've heard so many times that God loves you, no matter what you do, that His love for you is firmly stuck into your consciousness. You take it for granted, because it is. It is granted. It is a gift, and you don't deserve it. You recognize that fact, but does your attitude reflect it?

HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

Almighty God, from this pulpit of stone The American People render thanksgiving and praise for the new era of civilization brought forth upon this continent.  Centuries of tyrannical oppression sent to these shores, God-fearing men to seek in freedom the guidance of the Benevolent Hand in the progress toward wisdom, goodness toward men, and piety toward God.

concrastination

I have learned something about putting off for later what could be done now. The down sides actually do outweigh the advantages. Oh sure, at first glance it seems that putting off a task that lies before you, might grant you more immediate free time. But the downside (I have learned through years of careful study) is that things just don't seem to get done. So when you balance all of the pros and cons of procrastination, the cons actually outweigh the pros. Therefore, let the word hereby be changed, and let us refer to the putting off of things for tomorrow as

"concrastination."

Your cooperation in this matter will be appreciated by myself and the untold millions who share my particular personal bent.  We need a constant reminder.

Thank you
