The next President will have the power to appoint the next Supreme Court Justices. As it stands now, we have 8 currently on the bench with one yet to be appointed. The Supreme Court makes up one of the three branches of our government. Executive, Legislative, and Judicial. The Judicial branch decides cases like Rowe vs. Way, (Abortion)   Marriage Equality,  (Gay Marriage) and other issues that determine the direction of our nation.
We have 4 Liberal judges and 4 Conservative judges with the 9th to be decided by the next POTUS.  This is so important to the future of our country and our Constitution. The Liberals believe that our constitution is out dated and needs to be changed to fit the general consensus of the political climate as it stands today. The Conservatives believe the constitution should be left as is. Even the oath taken by the POTUS states the Constitution should be upheld and protected as is.
If Clinton wins this election she will appoint Liberal Justices to decide cases like the gun control issue, (2nd amendment rights,) (Our right to bear arms). Basically it would mean that the court would decide what kind of guns we can own. The AR 15s and other military style assault weapons would probably be outlawed by a Clinton Administration. Sure we will be allowed have our .22 rifles and shot guns to hunt with but what about protecting our families from a foreign invasion? Can we trust our depleted military to protect us from an invading force such as Russia, or maybe even and Islamic army that is forming in our country as I write this post. Responsible people should be able to own the guns that protect our families and deter an enemy. Clinton's poor judgment in the past has caused much loss of life and put our National Security at risk. Her foreign policies have all failed. She cannot run on her record so she attacks her opponent with sex scandal's and character assassination.
Donald Trump on the other hand, regardless of the off the wall comments he has made and the allegations by the main stream media that he "groped women," by the way this attempt to discredit Trump is so much "grade school" tactics and a desperate effort to turn the attention away from the issues that really matter, ISIS, the economy, our southern border security, Syrian refugees, Energy independence, Gun Rights and so on. Donald Trump will uphold our constitutional rights including religious liberties that are under attack by the Liberal Left.
We are a nation at war, not by our choice but by the enemy that has vowed to destroy us as a people and a nation. "Death to America" is their chant and motto. They teach their children to hate America and to hate Israel. We are the "Great Satan" in their eyes worthy only of death and destruction. Clinton wants to welcome these people into our country! Can you imagine another 110,00 of these "refugees" coming here? Again, if only 1% of these people are radical Islamists that is 1100 terrorists who will recruit others  to join in the "Jihad" or struggle against the western ideology, "FREEDOM"! These people hate freedom! They want all people everywhere to "submit" to Islam or die.... Sharia Law to be the "law of the land" here and around the world. Donald Trump will protect us against all enemies foreign and domestic. There are many issues that take precedence over these petty allegations in an effort to destroy Clinton's competition. Despite all the rhetoric to discredit Trump he is still the better choice to run our country and protect our people and our Constitution.


"The fool says in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good.
The LORD looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God. All have turned aside, they have together become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one."   Psalm 14:1-3  (N.I.V.)


Lord God, thank You in Jesus' name that we live in a free country and we can worship you as You see fit and we can use Your Word to determine right from wrong. Help us as a nation choose the person who is best suited to run our country and guarantee our religious liberty and freedoms we hold dear. Help our nation to be a blessing to Israel and Your people around the world that we might have Your continued blessings and protection.... Your Word says, "And I will bless them who bless you and curse them who curse you: and in you shall all families of the earth be blessed." Genesis 12:3 (A.K.J.V.)  Thank You Father for Your Word and all the promises and the blessings. In the name of Jesus make it so.... Amen

GOD BLESS ALL WHO READ THIS BLOG.... in Jesus name, make it so.... Amen!



Wow, this presidential election is the most important in our country's history. Reasons being many, let me begin by comparing what each candidate stands for on certain issues, not their personal business or statements made years or decades ago. Let's look at the Liberal candidate. Hillary R. Clinton..... The democratic platform has many planks in it that I as a conservative strongly disagree with the most important one being the Liberal stance on "Open borders and Immigration". Open borders poses a great threat to our society, especially now that radical Islam is at war with us. I'm in favor of building "That Wall". The Hispanics coming across is one thing but the known  "Islamic Terrorists" that are sneaking in through Mexico, and by way of "Innocent Syrian refugees" unvetted and undetected is another. And they are here. And Hilliary wants another 110,000 more? If only 1% were radical Islamic Terrorists (1,100) that is 1% too many! I cannot vote for "open borders" as the Clinton supporters will. I am for keeping our country and our way of life safe. My Grand kids will know a different country than we know if we welcome our enemy.
"Islam" means "Submission"... Not only is it a "religion" it is an "ideology" and form of Government.  Muslim's who live by the "Koran" are Islamists and take the writings seriously. Those so called moderate Muslims are still Muslim and worship the same God, "Allah" who is not the same God of the bible. Research this if you want more details. But these people do not believe in the same "freedoms" as we Americans hold dear. They submit to Tyranny and Totalitarian Theocracy rule, meaning the people have no voice on many issues. 
Once they have a Mosque built they start to increase in population. London England is a good example, research this for yourself too, London used to be a Christian dominated city, it now has a Muslim Mayor and is moving toward "Sharia Law"  believe me, Islam and Christianity cannot coexist, 1000 years of history is proof of this.
 If a Muslim would like to "assimilate" into our culture and love our country and way of life the way we do, then we should welcome them with open arms the same way we have in the past when the Europeans started immigrated here for a better life and the FREEDOMS we enjoy. Donald Trump wants to build a wall to protect our Southern border, Hilliary wants open borders and is for "Globalism" which in essence means, No more U.S.of A. the way we know it.
I could write more on this subject but I want it this to be a quick and informative read.

Now the "Pro Choice" issue. I believe that life starts at conception. As soon as the egg and sperm comes together something "miraculous" happens. LIFE! The bible says that we are "wonderfully and fearfully made" and that "He knits us together in our mother's womb...."
If we don't protect our unborn then we will pay a heavy price. Ever since "Rowe vs. Way" became law and legalized abortion in 1973 "Planned Parenthood" has performed countless 1000s of abortions with taxpayer dollars and was even caught in the act of selling baby "body parts". Look at the number of late term partial birth abortions are done in our country every year. That is murder in my opinion. I cannot support a candidate who believes in this. I am "Pro Life" and take my stand with the conservatives on this issue. The Liberals stand for abortion, period. They call it "Pro Choice." And if you agree that women should have the right to murder their unborn, vote for Hilliary. Donald Trump will defund "Planned Parenthood." Where at least our federal tax dollars won't pay for this heinous practice and instead spend money on educating people and providing contraceptives, even sterilization if need be.

What  about our 2ndAmmendment rights? Right to bear arms. We are not talking about guns for hunting. We need a way to protect ourselves and families from all enemies "Domestic and Foreign" including an over bearing government, like King George in 1776. If we ever get invaded by a hostile nation, and I can could name a few who would love nothing better than to see our nation and way of life destroyed, then a .22 rifle and a shot gun won't get it done. We should at least have the same fire power that may be used against us. Can we count on a depleted military to protect us from an invading army? Can you trust Hilliary Clinton to protect you? She didn't even lift a finger to help the Benghazi victims and one of those was an Ambassador! Do you think she would care about your family? I don't think so. The woman lies way too much to believe anything she says. She already has exhibited that she has way too much power when she can escape prosecution for jeopardizing our national security. I'm with Donald Trump, she should be prosecuted and punished. There are many people in jail for a lot less. Martha Stewart told a lie to the court and did time in jail. General Petraeus gave access to classified info to his biographer and was destroyed because of it. I could go on and on about the Clintons being above the law.... I cannot vote for the Liberals.
Donald Trump will protect and defend our right to bear arms under the 2nd Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.... He will use a form of extreme "vetting" to screen refugees and keep as many of the enemy out as possible.

Health Care.... Obama care is a disaster for the working people who pay for it. Even Bill Clinton says, "It's the craziest thing in the world!" I think we can come up with a better way. The V.A. ...
We treat illegal immigrants better than we do our own Vets. who fight and die for the freedoms we enjoy... It just doesn't make sense, why any thinking American would support that. Trump will repeal and replace Obama care.

Energy Policy..... Hillary Clinton has said publicly she "wants to put the coal miners and coal companies out of business" with regulation after regulation. Obama has just about done just that. There are so few miners working now that they can't keep up with the retirees collecting their hard earned pensions and health care benefits.
 The U.S. domestic oil and gas industry is poised to be the most productive in the world. By use of Hydraulic Fracturing which was found to have less of an impact on the environment than solar and wind power. If you've never seen a wind farm you can see one in South Central Pa. It's an absolute eye sore not to mention the danger they pose to the bird wild life. 1000s of birds are killed every year because of Wind  Farms. Again, solar power is just as ugly. It takes away the beauty of any landscape.
Are we supposed to continue buying Arab oil when we have more than enough under our feet? The Islamic world hates us and they make no bones about it. These people chant, "Death To America!" "Death To Israel!" ( our most powerful ally in the region)...daily! Liberal leftist would rather buy oil from people who hate us than to develop our own and be Energy Independent. Why should we enrich our enemies? It doesn't make sense! I could go on and on but let's move on..... Trump wants to develop our own oil and gas resources and be energy independent and put the coal miners back to work! I stand with Trump!

Common Core Education? Mandatory Federal guide lines to teach our kids? NO! Trump is against "Common Core"

Giving money (1.7 billion in cash!!!) To an Islamic Republic, (Iran), which is the number one state sponsor of terrorism in the world! Why? This was Obama's folly but I'm sure Clinton supported that decision. A Trump presidency would not have allowed that.

Hilliary Clinton has a problem with telling the truth... She has been caught in lie after lie after lie. She lies to cover up lies and tries to blame her crimes on others.... She tried to pass the blame to for the Email scandal to former  Secretary of State, Colon Powell. Did the liberal biased media even report that story?

Clinton is corrupt as they come! I could go on with other issues that have damaged our country but I am gonna save that for the next post. One of my sisters in Arizona told me to pray for the right candidate to win this election, I pray now that that happens.....


Lord God Almighty, in the name of Jesus I pray that we in the United States of America will elect a President that will Govern us with wisdom and strength and be motivated by love for our country and for You and not greed and power. I pray that You Lord God will intercede and intervene in this election and put Your best choice in office. Let Your will be done in earth as it is in heaven according to Your Word make it so. In the name of Jesus, make it so!

If you agree with this prayer feel free to share it.


"To you, O men, I call out; I raise my voice to all mankind.
You who are simple gain prudence; you who are foolish, gain understanding.
Listen, for I have worthy things to say; I open my lips to speak what is right.
My mouth speaks what is true, for my lips detest wickedness."
Proverbs 8:4-6   N.I.V.

Dear Grand Kids,
I know it's been a while since I've written you. I don't know why, but I'm writing now because I just want you to know that I think about you everyday and that I'm so very proud of all three of you.
Dei, I didn't forget your birthday on the 11th, I was out of town and didn't get online to wish you happy birthday on Facebook. I hardly ever get on FB anyway. I hope you got my card I sent Monday. Sometimes the mail runs slow. I would really like to hear from you and Cassie more often, you two are growing up so fast and I am getting so old..  LOL... Any way, I'm not sure when I will be able to visit all of you out in Washington but I hope soon.
Ryan, Aunt Shawna, Scott and I were at the Creation Museum in Kentucky for two days, wish you two could have been there, it was really fun and lot's of things to see and do. Maybe someday we can all go together again. That would be awesome....
I guess I'll just close this little letter now with a prayer and hope you are all well and happy. I will be thinking about you and keeping you in my prayers.  Love you all, Pap.......


Father God, in the name of Jesus, thank You for all our blessings. We thank You that You are our Provider, Protector, Healer, and Savior. We want You to be closer to us and let us feel Your presence every day, guide us and direct us in all that we do and help us to be better in every way. Heal our sicknesses and disease and any injuries we might have. Help us to gain wisdom and self control and make good decisions about what we say and do. We love You Lord, and we love Your ways and Your Word. We thank You and praise You, in the name of Jesus, make it so.....


"Give thanks to the LORD, call on His name; make known among the nations what He has done. Sing to Him, sing praise to Him; tell of all His wonderful acts. Glory in His name; let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice. Look to the LORD and His strength; seek His face always."   Psalm 105:1-4  (N.I.V.)

"The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn His face toward you and give you peace."   Numbers 6:24-26  (N.I.V.)

Dear Grand Kids,
Today is our National Day of Prayer. Even though we hear about prayer all the time from one source or another many of us don't realize how powerful prayer really is. I think that's because prayers aren't always answered immediately and to our expectation, but we forget that God knows what's best for us and He answers prayer accordingly. So, when we pray we need to first find out what is the will of God for our particular needs.
Don't ask God for lots and lots of money. That is one of the most prayed for things that seems never to get answered. Instead, ask Him for an idea that will bring you the financial rewards you desire. Ask Him to be your Provider. God knows what you need before you even ask and be a giver, that gives Him a reason to provide for you abundantly. His Word tells us that He "loves a cheerful giver."
 If you are in need healing in your mind and body, ask Him and then thank Him for being your Healer. He wants all His children to be healthy and to feel good in mind and body so we can serve Him with joy and peace of mind, and we will all have to serve somebody, it may as well be our Creator, our Heavenly Father. Why would we even consider serving anyone or anything else?
If we call on Him to be our Protector He will send angels to guide us on our paths without us even knowing about it. He will cause us to avoid trouble and  association with those who may do us harm. What is seen is temporal or temporary, what is unseen is eternal or forever. We are on the other side of eternity in this life and when we leave these bodies of flesh and blood we cross over into the Spirit realm which is unseen and forever.
And always remember to pray in the name of Jesus, Yeshua, in Hebrew. It is because of Him that we all have a chance for eternal life in heaven. Jesus is the key that unlocks the door to everlasting life and there is no other way. If anyone tells you anything different they are mistaken!
Love GrandPap


"Be joyful always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."   1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (N.I.V.)


Father God, in the name of Jesus we thank You for Your Word and we ask You to be our Provider, Protector, and our Healer. We thank You for making a way for us to have eternal life where there was no way before Jesus came and sacrificed Himself for us. Help us to understand Your Word and to share it with others according to Your will. Lord, we pray for the peace of Jerusalem according to Your Word, make it so in the name of Jesus, Yeshua, our Lord and Savior...

Dear Grandkids,
There will be times in your lives when you will think that your life has no purpose. Don't believe that! You are special! There is no one like you! You are a gift from your Creator to this world. He has something for you to do but sometimes we have a hard time understanding what that might be. So, look at life this way if you are confused and wondering. First, you need to know that the Spirit of God lives in you as it does all of us. That is what causes our hearts to beat and our brains to think. We are fearfully and wonderfully made in His image. We are a three part creation with a body, (flesh, blood, skin and bone) a soul, (our thoughts, likes and dislikes, personality, strengths and weaknesses) and our spirit, (the invisible part of us that never dies). God is also a three part being, (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) that is the image of God.
When I was young I had no idea what and who I really was. I believed what the schools I went to taught me and that was that I was a product of evolution, a descendant of apes which were descendants, mice which were descendants of pond scum. I was basically an animal without hope or purpose. So what good was I? That teaching caused me to think wrong about myself and who I was which lead to behavioral problems and other issues. Believe me when I tell you that you are created special apart from the animals. In the image of God and the God who created you also loves you. He is your Heavenly Father apart from your earthly father. So, even though we can't see our Father in heaven He is there for us in a big way, even bigger than our earthly "Dads". He is so big we can't see Him physically but He lives in us by His Spirit. That's how He knows everything about us. When we pray that's how He hears us. All the other creations around us prove that He exists, the trees, the insects, the birds, the cats and dogs, the stars in the sky, all these things were made by Him. Look at the design of a leaf, or the way an insect grows. Look at the design of every living creature and prove that it all just "happened" by chance.  It's impossible. Design requires a designer...
Now what exactly is our purpose here on this planet? What do we want in this life? Well, basically we all want the same things, and we all need basically the same things, like water, food, clothing, and shelter. Now we also want to be loved and respected, we want to feel secure and safe where we live, and we want a certain amount of comfort, nice (things) of course but what about purpose? What is our function here? The long answer to those questions have been the subject of many books, but the short answer is pretty simple. We are here to learn to love God and to know Him and make Him known, and to bring honor and glory to His name and to seek after His kingdom and when we do this, all these other things that we want will be provided for us. It really is amazing the way God works in our lives. He causes the right people to show up in our lives at just the right time, He puts the right thoughts in our minds and helps us to think. He protects us and provides for us through other people. That's when we make the effort to know Him because He won't force us to want Him or to love Him.
So, what I'm trying to teach you with this letter is to understand who you really are and what you can do to have a purposeful happy life here and now with a hope that you can live forever with God in His kingdom. Really, isn't that what we all want? Love you, GrandPap


"I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us--- whatever we ask--- we know that we have what we ask of Him."   1 John 5:13-15


Father God in heaven, thank You for Your Word and all our blessings. Thank You for being our Protector our Provider, and our Savior. Help us to see the special purpose we have on this earth and to know You and who we really are in You. Help us to feel Your presence and Your love as we go about the days in our lives. Let us be healthy, joyful, happy, and a blessing to others and to know our special purpose, and to know You, and to love You, and to do Your will. Make it so, in the name of Jesus, Yeshua, our Lord and Savior, amen...

Dear Grandkids,
Here's another thing I need to tell you about so that you can maybe save yourselves a lot of grief. No one taught me this when I was a child. If I had only known how powerful spoken words were back then my life would have been so much better. Some of the things that came out of my mouth were disgusting and vulgar and so shameful I would like to forget I actually said those things and the consequence's are still with me today, but I am counteracting all the negative, hurtful, ignorant, and shameful things that came out of my mouth with positive, loving, up building and wise sayings the best I can. Instead of telling someone how ugly, stupid, and dumb they are I try to build that person up with nice words, and if I can't think of anything nice or helpful to say to someone then I won't say anything at all. Another thing kid's, when we think we are hurting someone else with our words we are hurting ourselves even more. Jesus told His followers that it "wasn't what went into our mouths that defiled us, it was what came out of our mouths that defiled us.
   Now, the real power in the words we speak lies in what we tell ourselves. If we say to ourselves things like this, "I can't be good enough to play that game, I'm too small." Or something like this, "No one likes me, I'm ugly, I'm stupid, I suck, I will never be loved, I'm bad because I made this mistake and now everyone hates me." Or, "The person I want to be my friend won't like me." Or, "The girl at school I like will never like me." I can think of all kinds of stupid, untrue things I used to say about myself that came true after I said them long enough  because those words were powerful and I fell into the very things I said because my mind with those words took me in that direction. I started believing all those words were true and so that's how I became, which caused me much grief, depression, disappointment, anger, and frustration and all those feelings made me even worse. I believed I was dumb, ugly, unlovable, stupid, weak, and would never be loved, always poor, always lacking, never having what I wanted and never being the kind of person who was loved and respected. The kind of person who was looked up to and admired for being polite, respectful, thoughtful, generous, kind, trustworthy, and friendly.
Because of what I was told about myself, the words my dad spoke to me, and the words I spoke to myself in my mind, and out loud, that was who I became. I was one of the bad kids, the kid that cussed, smoked, bullied, was disrespectful, selfish, without manners, hurtful to others, negative about almost everything, so that's how my life was for many years. If only I would have had someone to show me the error of my ways, the 'words' I spoke to others and to myself were so important. That's why I'm letting you know now that you should be careful about what you say to your self and others because, "Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat it's fruit." Proverbs 18:21  (N.K.J.V.) and, "The fools lips bring him strife, and his mouth invites a beating." Proverbs 18:6 (N.I.V.) and "Even a fool is thought wise if he keeps silent, and discerning if he holds his tongue."  Proverbs 17:28 (N.I.V.)
We all need to take these words to heart and be careful of what we say, even  now I have to think about what I'm saying and be careful not to put my "foot in my mouth" so to speak, and sometimes I still say things I need to apologize for. What I hope to teach you with this letter is to just be aware of how powerful the words you speak and think are. Here's how you should use your words, "I am smart, I am strong, I am lovable, kind, generous, helpful, friendly, funny, honest, trustworthy. People like me, I am a good friend. I am beautiful, handsome, talented, skillful, thoughtful, godly, and funny. I am well provided for by God. God heals me, helps me, protects me and loves me. I am a giver. Read and listen to God's Word to get rid of the negative words the 'world' teaches. And remember, "For the Word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart."  Hebrews 4:12  (N.I.V.)
So, say the words that describe what you want your life to be like and keep on saying those words until it becomes reality even if you don't feel that way or your life is not that way yet it will happen as you say so don't give up but keep on using your words wisely and you will save yourself much grief. This also takes practice.... Love Grandpap


"He who guards his lips guards his life, but he who speaks rashly will come to ruin." Proverbs 13:3 (N.I.V.)
"Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing." Proverbs 12:18 (N.I.V.)
"A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in silver settings." Proverbs 25:11  (N.I.V.)


Father God, in Jesus name we pray that You help us to control our tongues and to think about what we say and help us to always speak good words about ourselves and others. Let us use words to help us live better lives and to be a blessing to others. Help us to build each other up and not tear each other down with our words. And thank You especially for Your Word which gives us life and health and power. In the name of Jesus, Yeshua, we pray for the peace of Jerusalem, according to Your Word, make it so... Amen
