“Another day; another dollar.”

That was a saying I remember from my childhood. Except they really meant it. A dollar went a long way back then. Now it costs way over a dollar just for a cup of coffee.

Over the years inflation has raised its ugly head. Now if you don’t make over the poverty line in the United States, you are in big trouble.

I just saw that Portland is still under siege.

Last night anarchist tore down two prominent statues. One was Teddy Roosevelt, and the other was Abraham Lincoln. Two great leaders from the past. Can’t be rioting for just for black people anymore when they destroy Abraham Lincoln’s statue.

It is just plain attempts to over throw our government to cause panic.

I think it is time to go in and clean up these messes once and for all. Bring in the National Guard, The Feds, or whom ever we need to end this nightmare.

Yes, they have President Trump losing

by double digits in the upcoming election, which is less than a month away by the way.

I am here to tell you that Trump will win in a landslide! No question about it. I have reasons why this will happen.

  1. So many voters are afraid to say they will vote for Trump, because of harm to be done if they do.
  2. Most of the polls are hand selected people that seem to be people who are anti Trump.
  3. Trump has been doing a great job. Why would anyone in the right mind vote otherwise?

These are all my opinions, but I am convinced I am right. We will know in a few weeks.

On RallyPoint…..

There is excitement in the air. President Trump is out to make our military stronger than ever. I saw many new missiles, rifles, tanks, and artillery that have been upgraded tremendously. For example: They now can have unmanned tanks guided by drones. No loss of life. These tanks are much faster; have stronger weapons, and thicker shells.

Another thing I noticed is that most of the RP members are Republicans.

I have another excerpt from the book, “Signs of Hope: Ways to Survive in an Unfriendly World.” 

This book reaches out to those who may be suffering from anxiety, fear, depression, addictions, self-doubt, hopelessness, and the many other usual suspects.

This excerpt talks about giving is better than receiving. I talk about actual people who gave, and didn’t expect anything in return.

It Is Better to Give than Receive

 

A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you,

so you must love one another.

By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.

John13:34-35

 

Imagine what a heavy schedule of appointments President Abraham Lincoln had to keep day after day. Yet when an elderly woman with no official business in mind asked to see him, he graciously consented.

As she enteredLincoln’s office, he rose to greet her and asked how he might be of service. She replied that she had not come to ask a favor. She had heard that the president liked a certain kind of cookie, so she had baked some for him and brought them to his office.

With tears in his eyes,Lincolnresponded, “You are the very first person who has ever come into my office asking not, expecting not, but rather bringing me a gift. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

My personal dictionary calls this elderly lady a silent hero—someone who does many things for others and never expect anything in return. My Aunt Dollie was the same kind of person. Her goal in life was to make sure her family was well cared for. And she wanted to be sure she had something to leave her children when she passed on. She did just that. She gave a lot of love to her children and many others, and when she passed on she left her family financially secure. But, more importantly, she left them with memories of a woman who stood out as a person who led by example, relied on tough love to mold her family and became a silent hero to many that knew her.

This type of person is high on the Lord’s priority list of how His followers should act. This type of unselfish love is the cornerstone of what the Bible teaches about love.

My brother Dave is a silent hero to me. I didn’t know for over 40 years that he had done something for me that changed my life because he wasn’t out to impress anyone with his love for his family.

When my brother was a senior in high school he told our mother he wasn’t going to go to college because our family couldn’t afford two people going to college at once. He said he would support me and help me make it through so that one of the members of the family could get a degree. Well, it took a long time because of the military and three children, but I got that degree and went into teaching.

I didn’t know about his sacrifice until over 40 years later when my mother told me. That, my friends, is a true silent hero! My brother gave up his chance for a college degree so I could get mine. I will never be able to thank him enough for what he did, but he knows now that my love for him has grown deeper than seems possible between two brothers. I also have become a silent hero in his back pocket to make sure that he knows how much I appreciate what he did for me.

John13:34-35 says that we should love one another as He loves us. We can always think of what the Lord would do to help them and use that as a model for the help we give. Remember His unconditional love, and how He would do anything He could to comfort them and help them through any crisis or stressful situation. That is what silent heroes do.

 

The greatest among you will be your servant. For whoever exalts himself will be humbled,

and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.

Mathew23:11-12

 

“Real generosity is doing something nice for someone who will never find out”

—Frank A. Clark

 

Further Adventures

Look around you and list those you feel are your silent heroes. You don’t need to share your findings with them. Just know that they are there, and be happy knowing that they will always be there for you.

 

Something to Ponder

Isn’t it funny how he who gives to the poor will lack nothing, but he who closes his eyes to them receives many curses?

 

When you Give Away Something, you get Much More in Return

 Before you read tonight’s post I want to share some exciting news. I signed a contract this last week with Winepress Publishers. The book: Signs of Hope: Ways to Survive in an Unfriendly World, will be coming out at the end of August or the first part of September. What follows is an actual excerpt from that book.
