I know that this site is called, Signs of Hope, but I am going to rant for a little bit:

  1. President Biden say that inflation is going down. Well it is still 40% higher than normal.
  2. President Biden is allowing thousands upon thousands of illegal immigrants to cross our southern border.
  3. Food prices has skyrocketed.
  4. Heating bills are out of control.
  5. Biden will not let us do our own oil drilling, so the gas prices are incredible.

________________________________________________________________________________________

I have other rants, but I think that is enough for now.

Millions of people are fighting depression, anxiety, and have a pessimistic look on life. That is not good for our country.

What can we do to survive this delima?

  1. Take it one day at a time, and be strong.
  2. Be careful of what you buy.
  3. Hunker down for the next two years.
  4. Storms come, but they go away.
  5. Never let the darkside dictate to you what your life is like.
  6. Above all…never, ever give up!

________________________________________________________________________________________

We also need to remember that God is with us 24/7. He knows our problems, and will protect us during the storms of life.

________________________________________________________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone,

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

Back in Salem, Oregon after eight days at the Oregon coast. It was very relaxing. beautiful sunsets, great food, and good company.

______________________________________________________________________________________

It’s back to reality! I was hoping the world would straighten up while I was gone, but just the opposite is happening. There are truly thousands of illegal immigrants crossing our southern border EVERY DAY! Many them were arrested on the spot for having drugs. Others were known terrorists. I can’t grasp the mental capabilities that our president has to think this is fine.

_________________________________________________________________________________

Have you also been frustrated with what is happing around you? I hear you! It is difficult, at best, to feel there is much hope in our world right now.

What we need to remember is that our God is in charge. It doesn’t seem right some of things He seems to be allowing right now, but He has a plan for us, and we need to trust Him.

I lost a couple of battles, but won the war. I am now clear of COVID-19.

I had some scars from it. I was told that I have lost hearing in my left ear. The doctor thinks it may come out of that though.

I had a horrible iron reading from a blood test I took. The high is not supposed to be over 300, mine is 752. That could cause huge damage to my liver. I did an ultra sound yesterday and I am OK for now.

Some wonderful news is that I had A-fib for years, but I had testing this week and the girl said I was back in regular beat since July 24th.

The COVID virus can cause some serious side effects, but can help you on occasion.

_____________________________________________

Have you had some struggles with you health? Have you had a doctor tell you some bad news?

There are many people like that.

So what can we do to counter attack all of this?

  1. 99% of what we worry about never happens. Give the rest to God.
  2. Be strong and help others who are going through the same things.
  3. Know that God is with you 24/7.
  4. Persevere through the storms of life.

__________________________________________

I know it can be hard at times. I have been there, but your strong example to others will go a long way in their lives.

Be the helper.

Be the supporter.

Be the calmer.

___________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

This month is Military appreciation month. As a veteran I am very proud to have served my country. I come from a military family. I had three uncles who fought in WWII. Two of them earned a Purple Heart. I was in the Army and was deployed to Korea. My son was a career soldier and retired as a Colonel.

The theme of the post on this sight are “Ways to survive in an unfriendly world.” I feel that we need to have the military to help us survive. I’m not a war monger that thinks we should fight in every skirmish in the world, but I do think we need to help those who are defenseless, and needing help.

___________________________________________

That said, I want to check in with you. Are you struggling? Do the days seem too long for you? Would you rather sleep in bed all day rather than face the world?

There is much to think about as far as the reason you may be struggling:

  1. The pandemic.
  2. The Ukraine war.
  3. Inflation out of control.
  4. Our southern border over flowing with illegal immigrants.
  5. Gas prices through the roof.

__________________________________________

I know there is more, but I am sure you get the picture. What can we do to overcome all of this stress and Chaos?

  1. Do not watch negative news.
  2. Keep you mind on positive things.
  3. Wear blinders that horses use to block out what is happen around you.
  4. READ THE BIBLE! All of God’s promises are there.
  5. Pray that God will protect you and give you peace.

___________________________________________

Be strong for yourself and for those around you. Never give in to the darkside.

___________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

What is there to talk about? I should say what isn’t there to talk about?

There is so much happening in our world today, it is hard to keep up.

______________________________________________

  1. Inflation is eating up our pocket books. Inflation has risen higher this year than since 1980.
  2. Gas prices are also eating up our pocket books. Biden is blaming it on Putin, and yet the prices were way up before the war even started.
  3. The pandemic doesn’t seem to want to go away.
  4. The war in Ukraine is devastating with hundreds of thousands of civilians dead.

_______________________________________________

It is hard, at best, to face our world today. We need to hunker down, and depend on God to see us through this storm.

Yes, He is allowing it to happen, because He gave man free choice way back to the garden of Eden. People who just want tons of power are causing much of what is going on.

I understand how hard it is. I hear your pleas. We just need to pray, and pray without ceasing. God listens.

_______________________________________________

Don’t be discouraged. Stand strong in the promises of God and He will see you through the muck and mire.

_______________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

It’s Friday and it is my rant day:

  1. I am very tired of the pandemic.
  2. I am very tired of how this country is divided.
  3. I am very upset with what is going on in Ukraine.
  4. I am very shocked how fast inflation and gas prices are rising.
  5. This is just my short list, but I don’t want to sound like I am inviting you to my pity party.

_____________________________________________

It is hard, at best, to face the world we live in today. We need to find ways to block out all the negative things that are happening:

  1. Don’t believe half of the news you are hearing.
  2. Seek the truth.
  3. Speak your frustrations to your congressmen.
  4. Put on those horse blinders to only see straight ahead.
  5. Read the bible for comfort. It is full of it.
  6. Go on walks without any negative thoughts in your head.
  7. Call someone to cheer them up. It goes both ways.

I try to abide with the above list for my own sanity. Try it yourself.

Let me know some of your own ways to face the day, in the comment section below.

If your world is spinning too fast for you, pray for protection from God.

God is in charge and He cares for each of us. Be strong through Him.

A Pregnant Woman and Her Unborn Son Was Killed in a Bombing in Ukraine

The events in Ukraine are very frightening. Today I heard that a pregnant mother and her unborn child died, because Russia bombed the maternity hospital.

That is a war crime!!

Putin is a mad man who is very desperate. He has to win now because of the embarrassment of not winning his war yet. Desperate people do desperate things. We need to keep the Ukraine people in our prayers every day.

___________________________________________

Mean while back in our own country, things at not well at all. Millions are crossing the southern border. The Dictators of four different countries to pushing hard, because they don’t think our leaders will do anything. Inflation is eating up all of our money, and at the gas pump we can hardly afford to drive.

What is wrong with this picture??

__________________________________________

We as Christians, must unite in prayer. Pray without ceasing. I always say that God is in charge, because that is true. We need to send pleas to Him for protection of our nation, and the whole world.

What a world we live in! Wars and rumors of wars. A pandemic taking many lives. A severely divided country, and much more. God has it all planned, and all the worrying we can muster will not change that.

______________________________________________

I would rather take care of those around me. I have reached an age that is getting difficult, but I will not waver until my last breath!

______________________________________________

The war in Ukraine is devastating, and horrific. However, what it has done is united many countries together. This is the most unity we have had in years and years.

This could be God’s plan for us. The Bible refers to the great enemy of Gog. Today that would be Russia. According to that same Bible they will be destroyed.

Worrying should not be in our lives. Things will be amazingly wonderful in the end. The shortest verse in the Bible is, FEAR NOT!

Cling to God’s promises and be strong!

It is not Veteran’s Day, but with the war going on in Ukraine I would like to share this with you:

Freedom is not Free

  1. It’s the veteran not the journalist who gave us freedom of the press.
  2. It’s the veteran not the poet who gave us freedom of speech.
  3. It’s the veteran not the campus organizer who gave us freedom the demonstrate.
  4. Veterans are those who salute the flag.
  5. Veterans are those who serve beneath the flag.
  6. Veterans are those who have coffins draped with the flag.

_______________________________________________

Yes, Ukraine is thousands of miles away, but when I see that Putin has bombed hospitals, especially a children’s hospital and a maternity hospital, I honor those soldiers there who are fighting back, and they will not give up.

We need to pray without ceasing for them.

________________________________________________

How is your world turning? Do you want to stop it and get off? Has all the turmoil around you caught up with you?

There are many of us in the same boat.

_________________________________________________

We must never forget, and I repeat this a lot, GOD IS IN CHARGE!

He knows what is going on, and a I assure you He is not happy at all with Putin. But because He is such a loving God He allows people to make decisions that can horrific.

We need to cling to His promises, and cling to hope. He is watching over you and I.

You are never alone.

It has been very frightening for the people of Ukraine. They have a huge Army trying to defeat them. So far they are hanging tough, but there are thousands of Russian military heading for the capital.

_____________________________________________

It is easy to sit here in the United States and think, I feel badly for them, but I am safe here. We should never forget them. There are thousands of Christians there that will severely be persecuted and killed.

_____________________________________________

Pray for God’s intervention. Pray that He will protect the people of Ukraine. We may have to defend our own country some day.

_____________________________________________

How is your world turning? Do you want it to stop so you can get off? This hotel called earth, is become very hostile and sad. Many would want to check out.

_____________________________________________

Rest on the love of God. He knows what is happening. He knows our fears. The shortest verse in the Bible says, “Fear not!”

Don’t let the dark side overcome you with fear. God is in charge. We just have to be faithful and abide in Him.
