the man, the great events, the life of a butterfly, what else, for some to suggest, a caterpillar becomes a butterfly, purely by accident, who is fooling who, for so long the tide was against all belief, why did this happen, the taunts of yesteryear, repeated time and again, your worthless, you don’t have much, and what kind of people speak like that, those that never understood love, amen, for Easter, check the image from the sky, it’s very real.
TV bang shock images in my head, allure tease entice that’s new, haven’t seen her before, eyes cross the screen chasing, anything to fill up the head, horror a power cut, just as it was getting good, programmed effect suddenly cut short, brain can’t engage, someone put the damn breaks on, fast, does anyone understand, fix the situation, Barbie is empowering, so is mud wrestling, these thrilling slogans, paid sin artists, children grow up too freely, unable to cope mentally, the evidence is everywhere, doesn’t matter how big you are, everyone agrees it’s madness, when God assumes we won’t do anything about it, I imagine he’ll do it instead, amen. Sleep walking into destruction, a new presidential race, where’s the third opinion, only take a few dollars, Ted Cruz enters the race, who wants to pilot the titanic, I do, me me me, amen
someday common sense will be applied to the law, it would save on lawyers fees!
The U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear a case this week that questions the constitutionality of Wisconsin’s voter ID law, passed in 2011. The case, filed on behalf of a group of civil rights organizations and state residents, claims that the law discriminates against those who don’t hold a certain kind of photo ID. Dozens of residents have testified that they can’t get this kind of ID because they don’t have a birth certificate or other legal documents. Experts estimate that roughly 300,000 state residents, mostly black and Latino, would be burdened by the law, which is a violation of the constitution.
“Today’s announcement from the Supreme Court is disheartening to all who believe in the values of a just democracy,” said Rev. Michelle Yvette Townsend de López, lead pastor of Milwaukee’s Cross Lutheran Church in a statement. “After earlier generations fought for voting rights, the Supreme Court’s failure to intervene to hear and possibly…

Ted Cruz sounds extreme to me
By Brian Ives
Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz went onCBS This Morningyesterdaytodiscusshis already-in-progress campaign. Toward the end of the interview, Gayle King asked him about his taste in TV shows (he enjoysHouse Of Cards) and music. It was the subject of music that gave the interview one of its more interesting moments.
The Texan said he used to listen to classic rock, until 9/11. “I didn?t like how rock music responded,” he said. “And country music, collectively, the way they responded, it resonated with me. I had an emotional reaction that says, ?These are my people.?”
Country music’s response to that tragic event came in the form ofAlan Jackson‘s classic?Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning.)?The song resonated with nearly everyone, including people in markets where Jackson…

humility from Jamaica
I had a gig once in Kingston, Jamaica. Now, if you’ve ever been to Jamaica you might be thinking “score, rad gig brah.”
You’d be wrong. Kingston is a hell hole, violent, overrun with gangs and poverty. The little strip I was on was called the financial district, and it was one street that wasn’t too bad.
While I was there I met a homeless man named Rappa. He and I would talk for hours. There were many dangerous people in the neighborhood, and he pointed them out for me. He helped me avoid trouble, taught me about Kingston life, and never asked for a cent.
One day I bought him a new t-shirt and some sandwiches. He was shocked, and cried as he rolled up the sandwiches in the t-shirt and went to hide them (he said he’d be attacked if others knew).
It moved me so much that…

the new computer honey isn’t working!
With all the great strides of technology, or so they tell us, one would think or expect that computers would be obedient, or, at least, pliable. Oh, No! Continuously, mine drags its feet, circling endlessly before settling down to arrive at the place to which I sent it.It stalls, it fluctuates, it wanders around like a lost soul. My pop server, Yahoo, that is about as dependable as a train timetable, sends frequent notices that it is down and I cannot, therefore, either send or receive mail. So, being a congenital idiot when it comes to machinery or technology, I call on a service, for which I have to pay, to doctor my computer. It takes them a few hours. They tell me it is running so slowly because (1) someone may have been trying to get into it and (2) At&T needs to be notified that it is running…

The corruption of love on earth, the damage it can cause within, the amount of addictions it causes, the number of wasted opportunities on account of it, and there is a cure for it no matter how bad you suffer on account of it, it’s not a prescription you can buy, it’s not the name of a great therapist either, it rests within the wisdom spoken by Jesus over 2,000 years ago, and if you accept his wisdom and guidance, you will be cured and that’s a 100% guarantee. It’s little wonder so much effort was put into the destruction of faith across the globe, the onslaught was permanent and non ceasing, and as love failed the industry around failed love just grew and grew, and the wars that resulted only caused a select few to thrive while billions suffered, and the formation of all sorts of prejudices, hatreds, while the few select and their henchmen thrived. It goes without saying, those that caused this atrocity are heading to one place. God Most High is fully aware of the goings on, and poured wisdom into the world in the hope people would realise it, and his son Jesus, came to earth, to put us right on these matters. The ability to forgive demands practicing it not thinking about it, it was why turning the other cheek was frowned upon by many when he said it all those years ago.
When you can’t forgive you create ACCESS FOR ALL SORTS OF EVIL TO GROW, and while most people externalise this by their attitudes and actions, those that love swallow themselves in all sorts of addictions and worse, even the demise of their hearts. Faith in Jesus demands faith in His Father, God Most High. It’s the reason why the evil menace was glad to see love fail, it created opportunity, and society and governments used this tragedy to build industry and job opportunities, Amen.
