I know that I am overdoing the reporting of the mess in Portland, Oregon, but it is breaking my heart. It has been over 100 days since the rioting first started and there is no end in sight. There have been people murdered, beaten, stores burnt down, and police officers being accosted.

People fear going outside. They see what is happening on the TV’s and it is right outside their doors.

President Trump has repeatedly offered to send in help to stop it. The governor and mayor have told him to leave them alone. Such weakness, is killing people.

As a veteran I KNOW what I would do and it wouldn’t be pretty. I am sure there are many of you who may agree with me. I would go in and start pushing back, and anyone that tried to stop us would be taken down and arrested. AND PROSECUTED!

Here is a side story that has me screaming. One of the antifascists (their name) shot and killed an innocent young man at point blank. The gunman got away. (Only because he was arrested for carrying a weapon. He was released the next day and not prosecuted.) That was about three days ago. Today there was a stabbing death of a young couple up in Washington. It was the same man that the local police in Portland had identified as the killer.

Because they released him without any charges he killed two more people.! I CAN NOT ACCEPT THAT. If they would had prosecuted him in Portland, the two people in Washington would still be alive, and they would also find out his was the killer in Portland. They should have put him away right there for the rest of his life.

I know this doesn’t have too much to do of what this site is all about, but maybe it is!!

I am going to get very political here. I hope I don’t lose too many of you.

I am fearing a civil war. A real civil war. Both sides of these happenings are very sure they are right and seem to think they would die for it.

The democrats are almost applauding the rioting. They think this will end the President’s White House visit. The democrats run every major city that is rioting. All of them want President Trump to leave them alone, because they think they are doing fine.

I need to stop here, and cool down! Sorry I ranted on you.

God Doesn’t Make Mistakes. He created you for a Purpose

I see it has been a month today since I last posted on this site. I have been spending most of my time posting at: www.dailysignsofhope.com. That is my blog. The response there has been tremendous. In just a little over one year the followers have grown to over 1380. Hope you check that out.

I hope you will start joining me here as well,  because I am back here spending much more time.

Just go the to the  “Networked Blogs,” icon and click on “Follow me,” below it. You will then be able to keep up with what is going on with my book, “Signs of Hope: Ways to Survive in an Unfriendly World, and my new book, “Signs of Hope: In Sports.” (Title may change)

Let me tell you a little bit about the new book. It is still floating in my head. (It is giving me a headache!)

I have grown weary of all the negative press that sports has been getting. Just this last week there was a national  news items about a Washington Red Skins lineman who was arrested for assault. Now I certainly don’t condon what he did, but I have heard about many more assault in my own home town and they don’t even make the local newspaper.

I prayed about this, and God seems to be leading me towards putting together a book that speaks to the positive side of sports. I want to talk to some Christian athletes in pro sports. I want to interview them, and let them tell their side of what it is like to be  a Christian in a not so friendly world of sports. There will be a chapter for each person written about.

God is opening some doors that I can’t mention yet, but for a teaser, there is a NBA retired player who has two championship rings that is interested in working with me on this, and I have a connection with a chaplain for a pro baseball team.

There are several other possiblities, that just happen to become known to me in just the last few days. I think that is God at work, and I look forward to working on this, all for His glory.

If you know of any pro athletes who are Chrisiatns and may be willing to share their story to help others who may be struggling in the sports world, please let me know, by commenting to this post.

Think on this:

  • God doesn’t make any mistakes. He created you for a purpose.
  • He made you in His own image. You are His son/daughter.
  • Never let Satan plant negative thoughts into your head. It’s time for selective hearing.
