Do not give back to his master a servant who has gone in flight from his master and come to you: let him go on living among you in whatever place is most pleasing to him.

My heart goes out to the folks in California. I have watched the news reports of all the devastation by those fires. So much loss of property and people's lives disrupted. I pray that they will receive the aid desperately needed. Is California sustainable? That's a question that will need to be answered.


Common sense is genius dressed in its working clothes.

I have had people tell me that I'm a leader. I have never seen myself as one. There are those times when I believe leadership is overrated. I'm not saying that we shouldn't have leaders-there should be leaders. The mistake, I believe, is when people believe that a leader should do everything, cater to every whim of ther constituency. 

A leader is someone who desires the best for the people he/she represents. I'm about solutions and want to be part of it. Unfortunately, I see a woeful lack of 'leaders' with solutions. If a leader (and the people around them} don't have any then what's the point of being that position. One doesn't have to be the top person to have solutions to whatever need there is.


I won't be distracted by the circus going in Washington. I'll let this all play out.

I don't know who I will be voting for in 2020 but I am going the independent route. In the last election, I voted for Jill Stein of the Green Party. Both Hillary Clinton and Trump, in my view, were horrible choices. During both debates, I saw the worst group of candidates that I can remember. 

Both the Republican and Democratic parties don't have the answers to the pressing needs of Americans. The Democratic candidates is an embarrassment and a joke. They bicker like children over everything. No solutions or a plan on how to help us the voting public. 

I was criticized by a few when I told them I voted third party. A few said it was a vote for Mr. Trump. How so? My vote didn't go to his coffers. Clinton won the popular vote so my not voting for her wasn't a factor at all. I'll never vote for someone I do not believe is best for the country. Whoever wins the Democratic nomination next year, I won't be voting for them.

When you find your definitions in God, you find the very purpose for which you were created. Put your hand in God's hand, know His absolutes, demonstrate His love, present His truth and the message of redemption and transformation will take hold.

With all the civil unrest happening around the world one wouldn't know it by the way mainstream media is reporting (or not reporting) it. The protests in Hong Kong have gone on for months. Who knows about the protests in Chile, France, England, and Amsterdam? I haven't heard much in the mainstream media about it. All we hear about is the circus that's going on in Washington D.C.
