Quiet Riot

I am proud to be a part of the quiet riot which is occurring across our great nation. We are not taking to the streets and causing mayhem and destruction, rather we are using the tools provided by the founding fathers of this country, which is built upon the freedom to be different.

And I intend to continue to be heard, regardless of the ongoing din of nonsense and silly talk. I will quietly, but diligently, weld my sword of rights: the right to vote, the right to bear arms, the right of freedom of expression, and freedom from a state imposed religion.

I hope you noticed that I listed voting first, for in this republic it is the most powerful weapon available to us, so I suggest we all continue to use it often and wisely.

Do not let complacency in the coming good times, silence us all…..sigh

A New Birthday Wish

It is funny how life changes. The progression always fascinates, but then again, I am easily entertained. You see, it is my birthday, and for as long as forever, I have been wanting to spend the entire day in bed, undisturbed, eating bonbons and reading. Not that I do not do this occasionally (well maybe not with bonbons) but on my birthday it should be absolutely guilt free. Right?

So today, the possibility has finally arrived if I wanted to choose for it to be so. Nevertheless, I am finding that reclining is the last thing I would want to do. For at this age of maturity I spend much too much of my time sitting and resting from necessity, thus to seek it on purpose gives me no pleasure.

This does however create a dilemma for me to solve. I now need to come up with a new birthday wish. It may seem foolish, and perhaps to some a bit depressing, but it appears that I like to have an unrealized dream, something to look forward to, something to wax lyrically over. I have never given serious intent to the reaching out and grabbing hold of my wishes, for it appears to me, that I like the idea of them, more than the actual physical accomplishment of them.

With that in mind, I really do need to dream bigger, higher, deeper. For it appears that I have nothing to lose and everything to gain, by reaching for the stars. But then again,¬†with Christ by my side, I already have the biggest dream¬†I could ever dream, and it doesn’t get any deeper than that.
