I only wrote the truth – an inspirational story

February 14, 2011

A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet.  He held up a sign which said: “I am blind, please help.”  There were only a few coins in the hat.

A man was walking by. He took a few coins from his pocket and dropped them into the hat. He then took the sign, turned it around, and wrote some words. He put the sign back so that everyone who walked by would see the new words.

Soon the hat began to fill up.  A lot more people were giving money to the blind boy.

That afternoon the man who had changed the sign came to see how things were.   The boy recognized his footsteps and asked, “Were you the one who changed my sign this morning?  What did you write?”

The man said, “I only wrote the truth. I said what you said but in a different way.  I wrote: Today is a beautiful day, but I cannot see it.”

Both signs told people that the boy was blind. But the first sign simply said the boy was blind. The second sign told people that they were so lucky that they were not blind. Should we be surprised that the second sign was more effective?

Moral of the Story:  Be thankful for what you have.  Be creative. Be innovative. Think differently and positively. When life gives you a 100 reasons to cry, show life that you have 1000 reasons to smile.   Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence.  Prepare for the future without fear.   Keep the faith and drop the fear.

The most beautiful thing is to see a person smiling.  And even more beautiful, is knowing that you are the reason behind it!!!

If you appreciate this message, please share. You may touch someone’s heart today.

Obama’s ineligibility for office

February 9, 2011

Look at this comment thread. HOW IN THE WORLD did we let this guy get in??? Congress spends days or even weeks vetting nominees for the Supreme Court. How is it that no one even questioned ANY of the qualifications that Obama supposedly presented? Or that he has spent nearly $2 million to suppress access to his personal records- (school, work, residence, birth certificate, etc.)? Obama has lied to the American people (hidden the truth), used his position to push his Socialist agenda and put this country so far in debt that we may never recover. He has engaged in behavior, that were it any other person, Congress would be asking for his head on a stick!

Congress is also complicit in this unbelievable assault on the USA. No one reads the Constitution, no one even follows the Rule of Law; no one cares about what is happening to their neighbors; millions of people are unemployed, with no jobs in sight; people are losing their homes as foreclosures and bankruptcies run rampant. Congress has ignored the very people who elected them to office, and “We the People” responded in November, with more to come in 2012.

Wvcrowcall I have just received an email which states that the SCOTUS is currently reviewing one of the lawsuits brought to determine/expose O’s status as a resident or not. Is there any truth to this, or is it more of the usual wishful thinking? I have seen no mention of it here or anywhere else. Thanks!

OnTheBall There are so many on-going law suits against Obama now before the Supreme Court, that were this George Bush, the entire ‘alphabet news media’ would be marching in the streets ripping off their clothes in ‘high dugeon’ as they say. Orley Taitz alone is representing dozens of active duty and retired military members law suits against Obama. If you accept Obama’s own written and oral testaments to his own recorded history, he stands convicted as an illegal occupant of the White House. His mother had him when she was 17 or 18 yrs of age. By Federal Law she had to have been an adult for five (5) full yrs ~prior~ to Barry’s birth for her to confer the Federal status needed to allow Obama to run for President. That and that alone pre-empts Barry from having ever run for president. He is an illegal occupant of the White House and was assisted in arriving there by Nancy Pelosi’s willing and knowing HIGH TREASON against this nation!

OnTheBall Yotty the Federal Laws are very clear. When a person wishes to run for president and one of their parents is not an American citizen, the remaining American parent has to have lived inside the USA for five (5) full years, prior to that person’s birth. Clearly Obama ”’IF”’ he had been born inside this nation, does NOT qualify and as such Nancy Pelosi violated Federal Law, in allowing him to be certified. Facts are facts.

The REAL Truth about the Tucson Shootings

January 26, 2011

The lamestream media told you:

Tucson shooting this, that, the other, more, still more, Tucson minutiae, speculation as news, guesswork, tangents, endless tongue clucking, microscopic views of anyone who knew anyone, savage attacks on fundamental civil rights.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

News coverage of anything significant in the entire world was virtually blacked out by news media nationally for more than a week, as a determined effort to sensationalize an assassin’s actions took center stage and the entire media industry took part.

Any notion that all life is precious and people are equal was bluntly erased as more than 1,000 federal and state law enforcement officials launched into action over the relatively small number of killings. More murders occur in bad parts of major American cities on any given day, see maps here — http://www.gunlaws.com/GunshotDemographics.htm. But authorities there barely record or announce the details, let alone document the scene, seek motives or track down perpetrators. “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others,” an allegorical pig was overheard saying.

Watching, reading or listening to “news” reports was virtually worthless after the first few minutes, as the same tripe was breathlessly repeated, often without any changes, and the same images of non-incident-related footage barraged the American public. Tiny new facts emerged slowly and entered the endless loops in print and broadcast reports. Speculation on the murderer’s intentions and mental state proceeded headlong with no basis in fact or substance of any kind, self-evident from the opinionated, vacuous and conflicting guesses. The murderer’s mental state and sanity are still completely unknown, but this hasn’t stopped pundits from punditizing.

Commentary failed to note that the standardized image of the murderer, prepared and released by officials and displayed for endless hours, was so distorted from the actual image of the perpetrator prior to the murders, that no human being would be able to pick him out of a lineup.

Efforts to convert an assassin into a champion for denial of fundamental civil rights was promptly taken up by the most leftist members of Congress, following former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel’s advice that no crisis should be wasted. Every old anti-rights bugaboo was dusted off and presented as if fresh and relevant. The attempts were a direct parallel to the 1960s racial civil-rights battles, where a single black criminal would be displayed incessantly to demean and disparage the entire black population, and keep them out of lunch counters and buses. The only true sign of insanity was a hopelessly impossible proposed 1,000-foot roaming gun-free zone to surround designated so-called important people.

The national disgrace of the coverage is being analyzed piecemeal by some organizations, but the barrage continues unabated, now three weeks after the event. Buried under the mismanaged news process is, for example, Mr. Obama’s support for a plan to create an “internet ecosystem,” where every user will need a government ID code to get online. It was announced the day after the shootings, just by coincidence.

Top 10 Predictions for 2011

January 15, 2011

With all the problems the World is facing, it can be unsettling to the mind.

Today, I will share with you ten predictions that are true!

1.  The Bible will still have all the answers.
2.  Prayer will still be the most powerful thing on Earth…
3.  The Holy Spirit will still move.

Sometimes we need the reminder of just “WHO” is really in control.

Tiger Woods vs. Barack Obama

August 8, 2010

I think it is remarkable that within a week of Tiger Woods crashing his Escalade, the press found most (not all) of the women with whom Tiger has had an affair with in the last few years, with photos, text messages, recorded phone calls, etc. etc. etc. AND, they not only knew the cause of the family fight, but they even knew it was a wedge from his golf bag that his wife used to breakout the windows (and his head) in the Escalade.  Not only that, they knew which wedge! And each and every day, they gave America more updates on his sex-rehab stay, his wife’s plans for divorce, and the dates and tournaments he will play in.


OBAMA has been in office for over a year now, and this same press:

1)     still cannot find any of his childhood friends or neighbors

2)     or locate any of Obama’s college papers or grades

3)     or how he paid for a Harvard education

4)     or which country issued his visa to travel to Pakistan in the 1980’s

5)     or Barry Obama, Barry Soetoro, Barack Soetoro, Barry Dunham or even Michelle Obama’s Princeton thesis on racism

THEY JUST CAN’T SEEM TO FIND THEM!

YET THE PUBLIC STILL TRUSTS THAT SAME PRESS TO GIVE THEM THE WHOLE TRUTH!

TRULY REMARKABLE!!!

Not really, what’s amazingly remarkable is, those that believe the press, are your friends, relatives and, immediate family members. And, what’s truly remarkable is that there are those of us that haven’t, nor will ever forget their traitorous treachery.

The Truth of what is happening in Haiti

January 31, 2010

Sad news about Haiti – the truth can not find its way out due to the liberal media. This news from a friend of mine, whom I trust to have written the truth of what is going on in Haiti. The wealthy stayed in concrete buildings and were crushed, while the poor lived in shacks and survived!!!   If you visit 3rd world countries, stay in the wood buildings and you have a better chance at survival.

Thanks John for the Truth about Haiti.

Looks like we are getting “FILTERED NEWS” as usual…

To All,

I just returned from Haiti with Hebler. We flew in at 3 AM Sunday to the scene of such incredible destruction on one side, and enormous ineptitude and criminal neglect on the other.

Port au Prince is in ruins. The rest of the country is fairly intact. Our team was a rescue team and we carried special equipment that locates people buried under the rubble.  There are easily 200,000 dead; the city smells like a charnel house.

The bloody UN was there for 5 years, doing apparently nothing but wasting US Taxpayers money. The ones I ran into were either incompetents or outright anti-American. Most are French or French speakers; worthless every damn one of them. While 1,800 rescuers were ready, willing and able to leave the airport and go do our jobs, the UN and USAID (another organization full of little OBamites and communists that openly speak out against Americans) These two organizations exemplified their parochialism by:

  • USAID, when in control of all inbound flights, had food and water flights stacked up all the way to Miami, yet allowed Geraldo Rivera, Anderson Cooper and a host of other left wing news puppies to land.
  • Pulled all the security off the rescue teams so that Bill Clinton and his wife could have the grand tour, whilst we sat unable to get to people trapped in the rubble.
  • Stacked enough food and water for the relief over at the side of the airfield then put a guard on it while we dehydrated and wouldn’t release a drop of it to the rescuers.
  • No shower facilities to decontaminate after digging or moving corpses all day, except for the FEMA teams who brought their own shower and decon equipment, as well as air conditioned tents.
  • No latrine facilities, less digging a hole, everyone was trying to use it.
  • I watched a 25 year old Obamite with the USAID shrieking hysterically; berate a full bird colonel in the air force, because he countermanded her orders, whilst trying to unscrew the air pattern… “You don’t know what your president wants! The military isn’t in charge here we are!”

If any of you are thinking of giving money to the Haitian relief, or to the UN don’t waste your money. It will only go to further the goals of the French and the Liberal left.

If we are a fair and even society, why is it that only white couples are adopting Haitian orphans? Where the hell is that vocal minority that is always screaming about the injustice of American society?

Bad place, bad situation, but a perfect look at the new world order in action. New Orleans magnified a thousand times. Haiti doesn’t need democracy, what Haiti needs is Papa Doc. That’s not just my opinion; that is what virtually every Haitian we talked with said. “The French run, the UN treat us the same as when we were a colony”, at least Papa Doc ran the country.

Oh, and as a last slap in the face the last four of us had to take US AIRWAYS home from Phoenix. They slapped me with a $590 dollar baggage charge for the four of us. The girl at the counter was almost in tears because she couldn’t give us a discount or she would lose her job… Pass that on to the flying public.

To Bobby, From Santa Claus

December 23, 2009

I remember my first Christmas adventure with Grandma I was just a kid. I remember tearing across town on my bike to visit her on the day my big sister dropped the bomb: “There is no Santa Claus,” she jeered. “Even dummies know that!”

My Grandma was not the gushy kind, never had been. I fled to her that day because I knew she would be straight with me. I knew Grandma always told the truth, and I knew that the truth always went down a whole lot easier when swallowed with one of her “world-famous” cinnamon buns… I knew they were world-famous, because Grandma said so. It had to be true.

Grandma was home, and the buns were still warm. Between bites, I told her everything. She was ready for me. “No Santa Claus?” she snorted…. “Ridiculous! Don’t believe it. That rumor has been going around for years, and it makes me mad, plain mad!! Now, put on your coat, and let’s go.”

“Go? Go where, Grandma?” I asked. I hadn’t even finished my second World-famous cinnamon bun. “Where” turned out to be Kerby’s General Store, the one store in town that had a little bit of just about everything.

As we walked through its doors, Grandma handed me ten dollars. That was a bundle in those days. “Take this money,” she said, “and buy something for someone who needs it. I’ll wait for you in the car.” Then she turned and walked out of Kerby’s.

I was only eight years old. I’d often gone shopping with my mother, but never had I shopped for anything all by myself. The store seemed big and crowded, full of people scrambling to finish their Christmas shopping. For a few moments I just stood there, confused, clutching that ten-dollar bill, wondering what to buy, and who on earth to buy it for. I thought of everybody I knew: my family, my friends, my neighbors, the kids at school, the people who went to my church. I was just about thought out, when I suddenly thought of Bobby Decker. He was a kid with bad breath and messy hair, and he sat right behind me in Mrs. Pollock’s grade-two class.

Bobby Decker didn’t have a coat. I knew that because he never went out to recess during the winter. His mother always wrote a note, telling the teacher that he had a cough, but all we kids knew that Bobby Decker didn’t have a cough; he didn’t have a good coat. I fingered the ten-dollar bill with growing excitement. I would buy Bobby Decker a coat! I settled on a red corduroy one that had a hood to it. It looked real warm, and he would like that.

“Is this a Christmas present for someone?” the lady behind the counter asked kindly, as I laid my ten dollars down.

“Yes, ma’am,” I replied shyly. “It’s for Bobby.” The nice lady smiled at me, as I told her about how Bobby really needed a good winter coat. I didn’t get any change, but she put the coat in a bag, smiled again, and wished me a Merry Christmas.

That evening, Grandma helped me wrap the coat (a little tag fell out of the coat, and Grandma tucked it in her Bible) in Christmas paper and ribbons and wrote, “To Bobby, From Santa Claus” on it. Grandma said that Santa always insisted on secrecy. Then she drove me over to Bobby Decker’s house, explaining as we went that I was now and forever officially, one of Santa’s helpers.

Grandma parked down the street from Bobby’s house, and she and I crept noiselessly and hid in the bushes by his front walk. Then Grandma gave me a nudge. “All right, Santa Claus,” she whispered, “get going.” I took a deep breath, dashed for his front door, threw the present down on his step, pounded his door and flew back to the safety of the bushes and Grandma. Together we waited breathlessly in the darkness for the front door to open.  Finally it did, and there stood Bobby.

Fifty years haven’t dimmed the thrill of those moments spent shivering, beside my Grandma, in Bobby Decker’s bushes. That night, I realized that those awful rumors about Santa Claus were just what Grandma said they were, ridiculous.  Santa was alive and well, and we were on his team.

I still have the Bible, with the coat tag tucked inside: $19.95.

May you always have LOVE to share, HEALTH to spare and FRIENDS that care. And may you always believe in the magic of Santa Claus!

Can a Muslim be a real American?

December 15, 2009

In light of the murders at Ft. Hood by a Muslim Officer (who had sworn to defend the people, our Constitution and the United States) this article becomes more timely and real than ever.

Can a good Muslim be a good American? This question was sent to a friend who worked in Saudi Arabia for 20 years.  The following is his reply:

Theologically – no. Because his allegiance is to Allah, the moon god of Arabia.

Religiously – no. Because no other religion is accepted by his Allah except Islam.

Scripturally – no. Because his allegiance is to the five pillars of Islam and the Quran (Koran).

Geographically – no. Because his allegiance is to Mecca, to which he turns in prayer five times a day.

Socially – no. Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews.

Politically – no. Because he must submit to the mullah (spiritual leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and Destruction of America, the great Satan.

Domestically – no. Because he is instructed to marry four women and be and scourge his wife when she disobeys him.

Intellectually – no. Because he cannot accept the American Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt.

Philosophically – no. Because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran do not allow freedom of religion and expression.  Democracy and Islam cannot co-exist.  Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic.

Spiritually – no. Because when we declare “one nation under God,” the Christian’s God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to as heavenly father, nor is he ever called love in The Quran’s 99 excellent names.

Therefore after much study and deliberation….perhaps we should be very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in this country.  They obviously cannot be both “good” Muslims and good Americans.

Call it what you wish….it’s still the truth.

Dogs Know!

November 18, 2009

Have you ever heard that a dog ‘knows’ when an earthquake is about to hit?

Have you ever heard that a dog can ‘sense’ when a tornado is stirring up, even 20 miles away?

Do you remember hearing that before the December tsunami struck Southeast Asia, dogs started running frantically away from the seashore, at breakneck speed?

Do you know that dogs can detect cancer and other serious illnesses and danger of fire?

Somehow they always know when they can ‘go for a ride’ before you even ask and how do those dogs and cats get home from hundreds of miles away?

I’m a firm believer that animals – and especially dogs – have keen insights into the Truth.

And you can’t tell me that dogs can’t sense a potentially terrible disaster well in advance.

Simply said, a dog just KNOWS when something isn’t right…. when impending doom is upon us. They’ll always try to warn us!!!

Gladys Knight Tells Floridians, “This is the Light”

October 18, 2009

By Geoffrey Biddulph

Gladys Knight and her 60-person choir of Latter-day Saints gave four performances for more than 5,000 people in southern Florida last week.

“This is the way, this is the light,” she said in teary testimony regarding The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Gladys Knight is famous worldwide for such songs as “I Heard it Through the Grapevine” and “Midnight Train to Georgia.” Over the weekend, she, along with her choir and a three-person band gave four shows to thousands of members and non-member investigators, who crowded into the Fort Lauderdale Florida stake center building. They heard Knight’s renditions of “Because I have been Given Much” and “I am a Child of God,” as well as several Gospel songs that are not in the Church hymn book.

Knight sang several solos, but she also directed several choir members who also took the stage alone. They sang songs such as “Uphold Me with Thy Sweet Spirit” and “Oh, How I Love Jesus” with a swelling choir behind them.

The highlight of the evening was certainly when the famed singer and her husband both gave their testimonies of the restored gospel.

“It is indeed a miracle that I belong to this church,” Sister Knight said. “The image of the Church in the past has not been conducive to my being here. It shows His hand in motion. An African-American woman: Who knew I would have a calling such as this?”

Knight has indeed been given a special calling by the Brethren to travel throughout the world giving her testimony both in speech and through song. Given her fame and her reputation, she may be a vessel for bringing thousands of tens of thousands to investigate the Church.

Several years ago, Gladys Knight’s son was the first member of her family to look at the Church. After he got baptized, her daughter came next.

Sister Knight described her search for God’s true church, which came after the baptism of her children:

“I was raised in a Baptist home. We spent all day on Sunday at church. I was kind of all over the place religiously. I was a Baptist and then a Catholic and then I went to several other churches. I was seeking. There was something good in every one of those churches, but I thought there’s got to be more. My daughter Kenya said, ‘talk to the missionaries.’ I fell in love right away. They were respectful, and the first thing they said was, ‘Can we pray?’ I believe in the power of prayer. They told me, ‘You check it out.’ I got on my knees and asked the Lord, and I got my  answer. I couldn’t wait for my next lessons. I said I wanted to get baptized tomorrow.”

Very soon after that, she was baptized.

Her husband, William McDowell, gave an eloquent and humor-laced testimony about his courtship and marriage to one of the most famous singers around.

They met because he was the manager of a spa in San Diego. “As Gladys kept traveling around the world, and I kept on traveling around San Diego, it was common knowledge Gladys has lost her mind and had joined those Mormons,” Brother McDowell said.

He would go to visit her in Las Vegas and, “There were a lot of young men on bicycles who kept on visiting — hungry young men on bicycles.”

McDowell added, “They kept on saying they belonged to the true church of Jesus Christ. I was raised very Baptist by god-fearing people, my grandparents. How could they not be members of the true church?”

But McDowell said he went to seminary and read The Book of Mormon and then got on his knees and asked, and “I received the answers. My grandparents had prepared me to recognize the Truth when I saw it.”

He acknowledged his brother, who was in the audience, and said, “This is the first time he has heard my testimony. Hopefully I can bring my family to a truth. The Church of Jesus Christ has been restored. It was restored by a young boy, Joseph Smith, who in a field saw God the Father and Jesus Christ.”

McDowell continued, “Take the time to research and find out for yourself. Take the time to pick up The Book of Mormon. Ask whether it is true. If you want to see a miracle, just think that Gladys Knight is running a choir in the Mormon Church.”

He then introduced his wife as “Gladys Knight McDowell,” and she sang a song to which Brother McDowell wrote the lyrics — “He Lives.” It was a very moving song about the Savior that Knight sang to a misty-eyed crowd.

“I have to give this testimony of mine,” Knight said. “I have no other choice. Sometimes the truth is right before you and you don’t see it.”

Knight said that it has sometimes been difficult for her to tell people she is a Mormon. “But this is the true church. It has the 12 apostles, just like Jesus’ church. Just like the people in Jesus’ day, we need to look farther for the truth. The people in those days got the same ridicule we get today. I was willing to risk that for the honor of serving him.”

She asked non-members in the audience, “At least see for yourselves. At least be obedient to that end.” She then went into the audience to shake hands and give hugs to the many people who adore her.

Mission President Noel Reynolds said his missionaries received 425 solid referrals from the event.

“The missionaries from the Haitian branch brought 17 people, and one young lady asked to be baptized right away after hearing Gladys Knight’s testimony,” President Reynolds said. Another ward mission leader had been asking his father, a Baptist, to hear the discussions for year. His father finally agreed with enthusiasm after attending the Gladys Knight event.
