love removes the masks

Love

Love is not just an euphoric high of emotions. Love is an intentional lifestyle that is lived out in every decision and in every moment. It is humbly attempting to model ones life in a manner that reflects the love, mercy and grace we have all been given. Love is just the recognition that our entire lives should be a unending thank you for the grace we have received without cost and without measure.

cowardice on display

Cadet Bonespurs claimed he would have run towards the gunfire to save kids. Instead, he ran from the kids. His cowardice is plain to see, just as it was with his five deferments from actual combat.

He is unfit to be in charge of anything. When will Congress get enough backbone to impeach him? My answer: not soon enough.

a horrifying reality

If there isn’t a special place in Hell for those who willfully destroy the natural beauty of our beautiful planet, there should be. The unmitigated greed that blinds those raping our world’s natural resources is evil incarnate. Scott Pruitt, doing his best to dismantle the EPA is but one example.

 

 

global garbage cans

I just read where a sperm whale died on a beach near Barcelona, Spain. An autopsy was performed to determine the cause of death. The scientists concluded its death resulted from over 60 pounds of plastic waste in its stomach.

We are destroying our planet. It is as if we think we have a spare.

Spoiler alert: we don’t.
