On Eagle's Wings

On Eagle's Wings
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:29-31

Trump, Trudy and Triumph

Beware! This first paragraph is a rant!

Whatever your political beliefs, I think most of us have to agree that insanity is trying to rule in our nation at this time. And I am not referring to the President! I am referring to people who have gone crazy with hatred over their disappointment, bitterness, outrage and outright meanness over the fact that their candidate lost the election. Enough has been said. Enough of all the threats and mean comments. It is so unfair. This morning ... very early this morning around 2 a.m. I lay awake thinking about this man that everybody is hating on. (I will say that he was not my first choice either.) But he campaigned with his own money working tirelessly with what I believe to be a sincere desire to Make America Great Again! I really think he means it! He is taking no salary, he is trying to make good on his promises, his wife and son are not there with him to support him, he is trying to surround himself with good people ... and because he is not playing the political games, he is being bitterly opposed and hated with vile public speeches and posts. He's only been in office ten days. Ten Days!!! Good grief! We gave our last president eight, long years to do something and watched as he and his wife proclaimed all kinds of negative things about America putting us on shaky ground in race relations by causing more division. In times of trouble, he went off to vacation or play golf!

People please, can't we just give Trump a chance? Of course, I realize the people who read this are giving him a chance. The people who need to hear won't listen. So it all comes down to another rant by another person who has no platform. So I did what I could today. I called my congressman and expressed my views and that I support our president.

On another note, my little Trudy is still with us. DH cannot part with her.

And my friend, Liz, who suffered a stroke at the young age of 22, and has been paralyzed for the last 11 years is now working with a personal trainer who specializes in helping disabled people. She has so much hope and determination, my prayer is to see that young woman get out of that chair and be able to walk.

Liz, you are amazing!
Never give up!
Every little success is a triumph!

God bless Liz and it's okay that your hubby can't quite let go yet. God bless our America and I hope we can all stand united once again. xo Diana

Say What? said...

Agree! He's the president regardless of who likes him and who don't. And no one can deny the fact that he hit the ground running, or should I say, working!

Oh, I pray Liz walks soon. I can see the determination on her face!

I so agree with you, Nonnie! Enough hatred is enough! Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts here.

What a blessing Liz is!

I agree with you and thank you for saying it so eloquently! Letting go of a dear fur-child is so hard. I will add Liz to my daily prayers!!

I am like you - I like to have a special quiet time with the Lord in the early morning just as the sun is coming up. I love your sky photos from your previous post!
