"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority ... the Constitution was made to guard against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." - Noah Webster

"There is no worse tyranny than forcing a man to pay for what he does not want just because you think it would be good for him."
-- Robert A. Heinlein

Please Stand by . . .

Remember when that used to happen with old broadcast television?  Back when there were just 2 or 3 channels on TV, and peoples lives didn't revolve around it?  Back when the whole family watched maybe an hour or two at the most, somewhere between 7 to 9 local time.  The only thing you would see on a black and white screen after midnight was a test pattern or "snow."

So, maybe it's a good thing for me not to be so concerned right now about checking the site meter and worrying about how many hits I'm getting, especially since I'm just trying to get a new life put back together in a totally new place.

I'm starting another blog because it needs to have an appropriate title and all the other amenities that go with the subject matter.  It's called Sons of Abraham.  The name comes from Luke 19:9

"Today salvation has come to this house because he too is a son of Abraham."

The blog is not up yet, because I have been away for almost two years and I need to re-learn how to do all the technical stuff about customizing the look and uploading stuff and I'm working in someone else's place, with their computer, until I get enough money to replace things.  I don't know how much more or less better off I am than Ann Barnhardt. 

I've lost everything of material value, yet I have become rich beyond measure through the process.  I'm wearing someone else's clothes.  Eating someone else's food.  Depending on other's generosity for all worldly things, yet, I get constantly reminded that The Father is providing it all. 

I may retain this blog only to have someplace to vent about worldly things and politics (redundant?).  But my passion has moved full bore into helping others find the One and Only Creator of the Universe.

Perhaps I shouldn't even try to compartmentalize through two blogs.  Obeying the Father is a 24/7 way of life that reaches into every nook and cranny of existence, or at least that's how it's SUPPOSED to work.   But I do figure that, for at least a few months, I'll have to maintain two blogs until people who have enjoyed my writing can transition to the other one and I have too much important stuff in the archives here.

Imagine having all, I mean ALL you possessions; computer, thumbdrives, hardcopy files, books, clothes, all legal documents, destroyed or disposed of for no good reason.  As though your whole past life never existed from that point on.

So, I have a lot, I mean a LOT of work to do.  Probably won't be able to post every day.  But as I recover, I hope that I will come back better and stronger than before, and that what you get from me from now on will be of more benefit than you ever thought possible, because it won't be really coming from me, but from the God of Abraham.
