Hopes and Dreams for 2019

As 2018 sputters to a halt and the dawn of 2019 appears on the horizon, I am minded of many hopes and dreams that I have invested in the coming year. This year has been one of awakening and as a result, it’s been a year of wild discontent. What do my hopes and dreams for 2019 include? #1: Financial Security- I need a job ( a career, really) that will allow me to pay my bills and make my own way in this world.

Health and wellness has taken a huge upturn in the right direction, and overall, it seems that many people and the entire world as a whole is going through a […]

Principle 4:  A free society cannot be maintained without religion.   How can that be?   Just some laws will do.   Not quite.  It seems we have a huge presence of Atheists coming out to proclaim their status.  Some of them even have channels on YouTube.   To be fair, not a lot of their material seems to be about religion.  I’d even say that they seem to be principled, which is good but, you’re not about to espouse the immorality of a heathen unless you want to scare away an audience.    It would appear that a lot of people today who talk of the Constitution, don’t really know the original writers placed a very important emphasis on religion.   It goes back to the 2nd Congress close to the birth of the nation, 1787, when the Constitution was written and approved.  They saw how important religion was in their day […]
