I can’t take anymore of the madness.
A President who tells lies. A Department of Justice that offers no justice. Armed Neo-racists hunting cops and polar bears. And a sieve for a border that allows thieves, rapists, and Jihadie Junkies to come and go with ease.
No more of the mixed-nut affliction.
So, here is a two-step program to ease the pain wrapped up in one scripture. “Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy — THINK on these things.”
Step one: garbage in garbage out. Turn off the Media Mannequins at CNN, MSNBC, and FOX. Turn on your local KLOVE station and listen to uplifting music.
Step two: realize a very simple truth – I am a nut. The nut who survives the storms becomes the mighty oak not the wimp who rolls over and quits.
I am an “oak of righteousness, a planting of the Lord”. The nut becomes the oak when it understands the beginning of that little scripture in Isaiah 61.
To paraphrase, “To bring good news to the afflicted, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to captives and freedom for those who are bound, to proclaim the grace and favor of the Lord, to comfort those who mourn and give beauty for ashes, and put on the garment of praise for the spirit of worry and depression.”
Then, “they shall be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord.”
I am a nut and I will not give up on America.
