In Awe

I was watching “The Universe” on Netflix. The sun, the planets, the galaxies. Mind boggling terms of billions of years, millions of miles per hour. I had to stop as it made no sense. Infinite numbers you can’t put on a blackboard and explain. Awesome dude….

Life just happened to commence with the “Big Bang”? Give me a break.

I am also in awe of Good, so powerful and meaningful and helpful.

I am in awe and terrified by the rise of evil in the world today.

Truth is good. Always. Our Judeo/Christian heritage is mocked.

The truth is that truth can no longer be easily discerned. We are pandering to the feelings of minority/identity groups. When everybody has a cause there is chaos. The news has become a cathedral of bias.

The Truth is now fogged by loud voices. A pandemic of lies.

I am in awe of how hard it is to find your way. Grade schools and colleges are fomenters of socialism, where everybody grows up believing they are entitled. Hard work as an ethos is dead. Immigrants used to come to America for the freedom and a chance to succeed. There are no walls. Entitlement becomes the draw.

Politicians who have never worked in a business, or managed employees, or been responsible for the financial survival of the business create edicts and laws without understanding the consequences.

Bureaucrats promise the kitchen sink. Talk, talk, talk, pander. Their income is assured. They are spending your money; they have no skin in the game. They feel no pain.

I am in awe of their hypocrisy.

Politics has become the new cancer. Pelosification.

Thank God we have someone with bad hair and real Fortitude leading us.

God Bless America.

Let freedom ring.

  1. I agree with you on how complex our universe is, how our own humanity has corrupted our world. It’s so sad to see through the eyes of our young children, grandkids, our neighbors, the fear of what is going to happen next ? What’s going to happen now ? What am I supposed to do? What do we tell them ?? How do I comfort my own daughters and grandkids, this is scary stuff, who do we believe? Lord I ask from the deepest parts of my soul please guide us.
