This is totally hilarious!!!

John Bolton at NRA Convention, Says Obama is "Following the Mexican Line"

John Bolton is spot on! The Obama administration is simply out to lunch and doesn't get *it* when it comes to the Mexican violence which is now spilling over the border into the United States.  If anything, their plan is one which violates our constitutional right to bear arms.  But is that really surprising with this administration's track record of trampling all over the constitution?

From Mirror:
"PRINCE William and Kate Middleton will pay a touching tribute to Princess Diana today – when their wedding service will feature a hymn played at her funeral.

William has told close friends and royals he is sure his mother will be there in spirit today, wishing him and Kate happiness.
Along with brother Harry he has publicly vowed never to forget her."

This music in this video is better and a lot clearer but wasn't embeddable.

Superman Renounces United States Citizenship?

What? Oh No! This sounds like bad news... Or not? 

From Comics Alliance:
After recently undertaking a journey to walk -- not fly -- across the United States in the "Grounded" storyline and reconnect with the country and everyday Americans, Superman appears to be taking another step that could have major implications for his national identity: in Action Comics #900...

...Superman announces that he is going to give up his U.S. citizenship. Despite very literally being an alien immigrant, Superman has long been seen as a patriotic symbol of "truth, justice, and the American way," from his embrace of traditional American ideals to the iconic red and blue of his costume. What it means to stand for the "American way" is an increasingly complicated thing, however, both in the real world and in superhero comics, whose storylines have increasingly seemed to mirror current events and deal with moral and political complexities rather than simple black and white morality.

Superman is from Krypton ya know

The key scene takes place in "The Incident," a short story in Action Comics #900 written by David S. Goyer with art by Miguel Sepulveda. In it, Superman consults with the President's national security advisor, who is incensed that Superman appeared in Tehran to non-violently support the protesters demonstrating against the Iranian regime, no doubt an analogue for the recent real-life protests in the Middle East. However, since Superman is viewed as an American icon in the DC Universe as well as our own, the Iranian government has construed his actions as the will of the American President, and indeed, an act of war.

Superman replies that it was foolish to think that his actions would not reflect politically on the American government, and that he therefore plans to renounce his American citizenship at the United Nations the next day -- and to continue working as a superhero from a more global than national perspective. From a "realistic" standpoint it makes sense; it would indeed be impossible for a nigh-omnipotent being ideologically aligned with America to intercede against injustice beyond American borders without creating enormous political fallout for the U.S. government.

While this wouldn't be this first time a profoundly American comic book icon disassociated himself from his national identity -- remember when Captain America became Nomad? -- this could be a very significant turning point for Superman if its implications carry over into other storylines. Indeed, simply saying that "truth, justice and the American way [is] not enough anymore" is a pretty startling statement from the one man who has always represented those values the most.

It doesn't seem that he's abandoning those values, however, only trying to implement them on a larger scale and divorce himself from the political complexities of nationalism. Superman also says that he believes he has been thinking "too small," that the world is "too connected" for him to limit himself with a purely national identity. As an alien born on another planet, after all, he "can't help but see the bigger picture."

Do you think the shift to a more global role makes sense for Superman? If he really is going to renounce his U.S. citizenship in order to function as a more international figure, how do you think it will affect the character?

On Not Drilling and Pain at the Pump

How any person could actually think that Obama feels your pain at the pump is unfathomable to me.  This President has put an unnecessary blanket moratorium on offshore drilling and now his EPA (yes, every person on the EPA is a Democrat and was appointed by Obama) has decided to withhold critical air permits which halts Shell's drilling efforts.   Shell was getting ready to drill in the Arctic Ocean off of the northern coast of Alaska during the summer but now Shell has to scrap their efforts to drill there because of Obama's EPA.  Plus, this has cost Shell a pretty penny.  Oh... that's right, Obama wants to stick it to the oil companies while claiming he has nothing to do with rising oil prices.  That is bull hockey!!  He has a lot to do with our rising gas prices.  There were a number of things Obama could have done to stop the pain at the pump, like lifting the moratorium on offshore drilling and allowing onshore drilling in the United States.  Instead Obama wants to give taxpayers' money to foreign entities such as Brazil, Venezuela, and the Middle East for oil -  to countries that don't particularly like the United States to say the least - rather than create jobs here in the United States,  while at least making an effort to lower the gas prices. 

From Fox News: "Shell has spent five years and nearly $4 billion dollars on plans to explore for oil in the Beaufort and Chukchi Seas. The leases alone cost $2.2 billion. Shell Vice President Pete Slaiby says obtaining similar air permits for a drilling operation in the Gulf of Mexico would take about 45 days. He’s especially frustrated over the appeal board’s suggestion that the Arctic drill would somehow be hazardous for the people who live in the area. “We think the issues were really not major,” Slaiby said, “and clearly not impactful for the communities we work in.”

"The closest village to where Shell proposed to drill is Kaktovik, Alaska. It is one of the most remote places in the United States. According to the latest census, the population is 245 and nearly all of the residents are Alaska natives. The village, which is 1 square mile, sits right along the shores of the Beaufort Sea, 70 miles away from the proposed off-shore drill site.

"The EPA’s appeals board ruled that Shell had not taken into consideration emissions from an ice-breaking vessel when calculating overall greenhouse gas emissions from the project. Environmental groups were thrilled by the ruling."

Then we have a three-inch lizard in Texas threatening to completely halt existing oil drilling for at least two years in some parts of Texas if the enviromental whackos get their way. If the Dunes Sagebrush Lizard is listed as an endangered species by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service then oil drilling will be forced to cease in some parts of Texas.  Alright, I have had it with the welfare of animals taking precedent over the welfare of humans. I'm not a sue happy person but whenever this type of thing happens and these enviro nutjobs endanger our livelihood then I think their needs to be a class action lawsuit brought against them.  We need to stop lying down like dogs and taking this crap from these people anymore.

This is ludicrous!!  The enviro-weenies at the EPA have gone wild!! The Pittsburgh region was just rated an F  on pollution.  Should I stop living here due to that?  This is all fear mongering by the Left.  The Left consistently accuses the Right of fear mongering but the Left need to look no further than in their own mirrors to see who is actually doing the fear mongering in this country.  

In Lee Habeeb's article he informs us that according to AAA gas prices have risen 37% since October but for some reason we haven't heard a peep from AARP or anti-poverty groups.  Obama hasn't even declared a moratorium on gasoline taxes.  Lee says that Obama chooses the Marie Antoinette approach.  '“Let them eat cake!” Stop driving those SUV’s, and start buying smaller cars. Stop drilling, and start plugging in those electric cars.' Then, Lee points out "Some companies are shifting investments out of the Gulf. BP recently said it would move a brand-new rig that was meant to work in the Gulf to Libya. Nice work, President Obama. We are bombing Gaddafi by night, and shipping jobs there by day." '  This scenario is bizarre. 

Larry Kudlow speaks to the Left's hate oil campaign.  Larry Kudlow points out:  "When oil prices blew sky high in 2008, ExxonMobil paid $36.5 billion in income taxes, $34.5 billion in sales taxes, and $45 billion in other taxes, for a total of $116.2 billion in taxes paid and collected in 2008." Either Exxon or the whole oil industry pays more in taxes then the bottom 50 percent of the whole income-tax system.  And Obama wants to stick it to the oil companies even more?  Obama wants to remove tax-subsidies for the oil companies and somehow thinks that doing wouldn't hurt Americans. 

Here is a USA National Gas Price Heat Map

You can see that the average price for gasoline across the country is at $3.52 per gallon or above.  The high gas prices are greatly hurting our economy.  We need to start drilling both offshore and onshore.  In addition we need to stop this nonsense coming from the enviro-whackos in their efforts to curtail human flourishing.

Revolutionary Socialist Group Planning to Recruit Children in JR High School

Well, it looks like the socialists are going to be targeting younger children to indoctrinate them into their extremist, Socialist revolutionary cause to "transform" America into something radically different from what our Founders intended America to be.  We, conservatives, need to devise a plan to save our youth from progressives who would distort both facts and reality and corrupt their minds.  I think this is one cause Glenn Beck is taking up after he leaves his 5 o'clock  show.  I think we need to start having youth events similar to that of Tea Party events.

Who Is Actually Doing The Taking?

In this video President Obama talks about the wealthy or the entrepreneurs "taking". Taking from who? The entrepreneurs are not taking from anyone. If entrepreneurs are successful and earn their own wealth they are not taking money from anyone. Obama's argument is so illogical. The Federal government is the one that is taking, taking the money from both the entrepreneurs, poor, and middle class folks. And, for what? Failed programs?

Here is a chart which shows how Congress has spent money from 2006 through 2010.

Here is a chart which shows the money that comes into the government from income taxes, corporate income taxes, social security and payroll taxes, excise taxes, Estate and gift taxes, customs duties, and other (not sure what other consists of), and the money that is spent by the government.

Do you see that between income taxes and Social Security and Medicare taxes the government takes from us  over $2 trillion.  If you take a look at your paychecks you will see lines that say Federal Income Tax, Social Security Tax, Medicare Tax, and then you have your State taxes.  In those columns you see a negative sign. This was originally your money, this is money that you have earned and that the Federal government takes from you in order to use it for the various federal programs.  This could be money in your pocket but Big Government GREED takes your money to spreads the wealth. So, who is doing the taking?  Plus, the government has just added Obamacare - a huge entitlement program - which will cost Americans more money than the President has predicted, and give will you, the consumer, less choices related to your health care.  Plus, the death tax returned thanks to the Democrats.  So, now there will be a 35 percent tax on property and items being passed onto the children of the dead which will create some additional revenues for the federal government.  Nothing like taxing one's property and possessions after you gone off to the Great Beyond.  This is yet another way for our progressive government to penalize the successful and steal their money and property.  This is another one of the liberal initiatives to screw the future of America.

Between Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security the Federal Government spends $1578 billion.   The Federal government takes in $1578 billion from taxpayers to pay for these programs.  Where does the government get the money to pay for these programs?  From taxpayers like you and I.  Who gives this money to the poor and elderly to help pay for these programs?  Taxpayers.  So who is really doing the taking?  Is it the Federal government?  YES.  The Federal government takes money from hard working taxpayers to help the less fortunate.  But, the taxpayers DO NOT TAKE FROM THE GOVERNMENT OR THE POOR!!

Our government takes in $2.57 Trillion and yet it cannnot stay within its own budget.  This out of control Washington spending dishes out close to $4 Trillion, which is around 1.25 Trillion dollars more than it takes in from taxes.

We need to make some serious spending cuts. We may even need to make some tax increases, but that would only be a last resort.

Since Obama keeps on saying that everyone needs to share the pain, (even though he really believes that the poor shouldn't bear any of the pain), I have an idea, Let's return to the spending levels of 2006. In addition some departments may need be cut even though their spending may not have increased that much or not at all.

 Here is Teresa's fiscal plan:

Looking at the chart we would subtract 230 Billion dollars from the Health and Human Services Department.

We would end this nonsensical non-war in Libya and cut Defense Department spending by 175 billion dollars.

The Treasury Department actually looks like it spends less money than in 2006 so let's decrease that by 5 percent which would be approximately $2.25 billion.

The Department of Agriculture needs to be cut by $65 billion.

Since education spending levels were lower in 2007 and 2008 then in 2010 and 2006 the departments funding should be reduced to 2007 levels which would decrease their funding about $50 billion.

Veterans Affairs funding would be reduced by about $35 billion.

Department of Homeland Security spent the highest amount of money in 2006 so I would decrease funding for them by about $15 billion.

The Office of Personnel Management would be reduced by about $15 billion.

The Department of Transportation's funding would be reduced by $20 billion.

The Department of Justice would be reduced by about $15 billion

The Department of Energy would be reduced by $20 billion.

NASA would be reduced by $2 billion.

International Assistance Programs would be cut by $10 billion

Other independent agencies would be cut by a total of $35 billion.

Department of State would be cut by $10 billion.

Department of Interior would be decreased by $4 billion.

The Environmental Protection Agency would be decreased by $10 billion.

Corps of Engineers funding would be decreased by $3 billion.

Department of Commerce would be decreased by $8 billion.

National Science Foundation funding would be decreased by $8 billion.

The Legislative Branch funding would be decreased by $8 billion.

I wouldn't touch the funding for Executive Office.

My total reductions would be $740.25 billion right off the bat. There would be no phasing in for these reductions.

Then we would have to tackle the high costs of medicare, medicaid, and social security.  But, that I will do in a later post.

Two economists, each on opposites sides of the aisle, agree on raising the age for social security and reducing defense spending.

I agree that the age to receive social security should be raised and that the budget for defense spending should be reduced.  I also think that the cap on wages for contributing to social security needs to be lifted.  I don't think that those earning above the cap should contribute at the same rate as those below the cap but maybe 1/3 the tax rate that those below the cap do?

Also, I am so sick of these rich progressives complaining about their ability to give more money to the government but not doing this of their own accord.  President Obama didn't pay more than his allotted amount for taxes.  If he and others wanted to feel more patriotic as Joe Biden says or that it was their duty to pay more in taxes why don't these people just write out that paycheck for the additional funds?  Why do they need the government to tell them the amount they additionally owe as well as forcing other Americans to pay more money?

Does Obama not think that serving in the military and being willing to sacrifice your life should afford you certain benefits?  A GI Bill is a small compensation considering that person could have lost his or her life.  Did Obama's grandparents not contribute to both medicare and social security before they received benefits?  How did this affect him as a person?  How did he "take" as he put it?  His misconception of how the world goes round and how people earn their wages is quite disconcerting.  Wealthy persons who create jobs did not take from the government.  They take out loans from banks and pay them back and if the persons don't pay on their loans they will go into bankruptcy.  Wealthy people are the entrepreneurs of this country giving others the opportunity to have jobs.  The vast majority of job creators get taxed just like you and I do (except big companies like GE, Verizon, and AT&T) which means the government - Federal and state governments  - take money out of our paychecks.  Unfortunately, these big companies use tax loopholes to pay no taxes. Our tax code needs to be changed so this isn't able to happen.

So, who is the taker of wealth in this country? The wealthy job creators or the Federal government?

My answer is the Federal government.

Andrew Klavan on How to Behave During an Islamic Massacre

Good Friday - Jesus Said "Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit"

From Luke 22:14-20, 23:39-46 --

And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him. And he said to them: With desire I have desired to eat this pasch with you, before I suffer.

For I say to you, that from this time I will not eat it, till it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.  And having taken the chalice, he gave thanks, and said: Take, and divide it among you: For I say to you, that I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, till the kingdom of God come.  And taking bread, he gave thanks, and brake; and gave to them, saying: This is my body, which is given for you. Do this for a commemoration of me. In like manner the chalice also, after he had supped, saying: This is the chalice, the new testament in my blood, which shall be shed for you.
 "Do this for a commemoration of me"... This sacrifice and sacrament is to be continued in the church, to the end of the world, to shew forth the death of Christ, until he cometh. But this commemoration, or remembrance, is by no means inconsistent with the real presence of his body and blood, under these sacramental veils, which represent his death; on the contrary, it is the manner that he himself hath commanded, of commemorating and celebrating his death, by offering in sacrifice, and receiving in the sacrament, that body and blood by which we were redeemed.

And one of those robbers who were hanged, blasphemed him, saying: If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.  But the other answering, rebuked him, saying: Neither dost thou fear God, seeing thou art condemned under the same condemnation?
 And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but this man hath done no evil. And he said to Jesus: Lord, remember me when thou shalt come into thy kingdom. And Jesus said to him: Amen I say to thee, this day thou shalt be with me in paradise. And it was almost the sixth hour; and there was darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.
 "In paradise"... That is, in the happy state of rest, joy, and peace everlasting. Christ was pleased, by a special privilege, to reward the faith and confession of the penitent thief, with a full discharge of all his sins, both as to the guilt and punishment; and to introduce him immediately after death into the happy society of the saints, whose limbo, that is, the place of their confinement, was now made a paradise by our Lord's going thither.
 And Jesus crying out with a loud voice, said: Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit. And saying this, he gave up the ghost.

Here is a Good Friday hymn called Crux Fidelis.

Here is a Good Friday reflection by Fr. Benedict Groeschel.

Baby Joseph Comes Home

From Courageous Priest:

Sentenced To Die By a Canadian Hospital,
Fr. Pavone and Priests for Life Champion
The Cause To Save Baby Joseph’s Life

The only thing Baby Josephs’ parents wanted was to have a tracheotomy and bring their baby home.   A Canadian Hospital and the Canadian Courts refused and took away the parents rights to determine what is best for their child.  A death order was given and a date was set to remove his breathing tube.

Priests for Life, with the help of countless others, stood firm and refused to let Baby Joseph die such a horrific death.  Here is the story of how Baby Joseph went from a death sentence, to St. Louis Cardinal Glennon Hospital to home without any tubes.  Well worth the time to watch and share with others.

Associated Press – The child known as Baby Joseph who is at the center of an end-of-life debate is now home.
Fifteen-month-old Joseph Maraachli left Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center in St. Louis before dawn Thursday and flew with his parents and 7-year-old brother back to Canada, exactly one month after receiving a tracheotomy.
The Rev. Frank Pavone of New York City-based Priests for Life, which lobbies against abortion rights and euthanasia and paid for Joseph’s transfer to St. Louis, confirms that the family is back in their home in Ontario.
Baby Joseph suffers from the progressive neurological disease Leigh Syndrome. Doctors in Canada had refused to perform the tracheotomy, saying it was futile, and an Ontario court decided doctors could remove the child’s breathing tube.
His family sought help from American hospitals, and Cardinal Glennon agreed to treat Joseph.
There is something special about Baby Joseph!
May God Bless All Those Dedicated To Saving Baby Joseph’s Life.

Traffic Fines Used As Revenue, Not Necessarily About Traffic Safety

Cities, towns, and states need to increase their revenues so this is one more way for them to stick it to the citizen and do just that. What despicable thievery!

McDonald's Parking Lot Rage

Three people were struck by a car and two others were arrested after a fight broke out at a McDonald's during their "National Day of Hiring."

It's an event aimed at hiring thousands of local people, but police say a fight between two women got out of control.

"I was filling out my application when I saw two girls fighting," said Joseph Shores, an eyewitness. "I don't know their names, but they were fighting over drama, hood stuff."

The fight went down at the McDonald's located on East 105th and St. Clair.

Police say the fight was over a boy, and it started verbally and escalated into a physical fight that spilled into the crowd.

After that, witnesses say, the unthinkable happened.

"One girl was on top of the driver, beating her. Then the driver went forward, somehow it kicked into reverse, and the car went backwards, hitting three people. It was crazy!" said Arnecia Patterson.

Another eyewitness, Antoine Grey, captured the incident on his cell phone and showed it exclusively to Fox 8 News.

"Someone got into a car, backed up a car, and pummeled like four or five people," said Grey.

Three adults and one 17-year-old juvenile female were taken by EMS to MetroHealth Medical Center.

Their injuries do not appear to be serious at this time.

Among the injured was the owner of the McDonald's, as well as a manager.

"We are cooperating with police. There is nothing more important than the safety and well being of the people who go in and out of our restaurants," said McDonald's spokesman, Joe Woods.

The restaurant was immediately closed and hiring was suspended temporarily. The closure disappointed the people who came up and waited in line.

"You know, we are trying to get people jobs and this us the way people act? It makes it bad for people like me who can't get a job," added Patterson.

Woods said the incident will not affect those who were hired prior to the accident.

Police are still looking for the driver of the car. The passenger, Natasha Grayer, 22, of Cleveland, was arrested for felonious assault.

Fighting over "the hood" stuff?  Physically fighting over a boy?? Ya know how there is the saying boys will be boys, well it seems that women have followed in their footsteps and girls will be girls or girls will act like boys now.  Example of a low class mentality?

U.S. Government Treats Koran as "Holy" and the Bible as "Trash" What?!?

This is despicable!! Our government should not be treating the Christian holy book, the bible, as if it was garbage that needed to be thrown out.  That shows an utter lack of respect for Christians and Christians holy book. The U.S. government had many options when deciding what to do with the bibles but yet they treat it as trash?  WTH??? Muslims are so "tolerant" that they won't allow another religious text or holy book to be handed out in the countries where they live, and if that had happened Muslims would have most likely turned to violence to express their discontent because their religious beliefs would have been challenged.  It is so absurd how our military is being forced to bow to Muslims intolerance.  We should not be accommodating Muslims intolerance.  We are supposed to be spreading principles of freedom and certain rights for individuals in the countries that we are helping and not aiding in the spread of their intolerance. The U.S. is not supposed to choose favorites with religious texts or religions. The constitution affords every person the right to freedom of religion and our government has no right to cherry pick which religion deserves special treatment and is holier, better, or more legitimate according to them.  We need to keep on speaking out against this intolerance being perpetrated against Christians or else there is a great chance that all of our religious rights will be stripped away before you know it.  Staying silent would essentially be aiding in the attacks against Christians. Silence is not an option. Freedom of speech and freedom of religion is essential to our Republic and must be defended.

Happy Passover!

Wishing all Jews a Happy Passover!! 

Here is a pretty awesome video showing the Passover story.

Back in elementary school I attended a Catholic school which was right next door to a synogogue.  There was one occasion where I had the pleasure of attending a Seder Meal.  I really enjoyed learning about the Jewish customs.  Even today, I still think matzah bread is delicious so I pick up a box every now and then.  Here is a song on the Passover Seder symbols.

 Rabbi Brad Hirschfield has written an article on Passover, Easter, and the Sacredness of Freedom.

Passover and Easter are, in many ways, the defining holidays for Jews and Christians, respectively. Yet with all of their differences, there is something profoundly similar, and profoundly American, about both of these holidays. That something is freedom.
Freedom is probably the thing which most of us hold sacred as the most American of values. Our founding stories are freedom stories and our greatest moments as a nation are moments of securing greater freedom for ourselves and for the world. Perhaps that is why Passover is the most celebrated holiday among American Jews, and one which is increasingly interesting to others as well.
The exodus from Egypt is one of those stories which inspires people whether they are Jewish or not, whatever their race or ethnicity may be, and it has been that way for a very long time. In fact, the Bible reports that a “mixed multitude” left Egypt with the ancient Israelites. Freedom was not simply for the members of a particular tribe, nor was it offered only to the righteous. Passover celebrates the notion that freedom is a right, while recognizing that rights are not always free. CONTINUE 

These Jewish kids singing are so cute!! Enjoy!!

Is This What Progressives Mean by New Civility?

If it is, I don't want anything to do with it. Yep, I don't want any parts of their version of "civility" at all.  Progressives showed up in Wisconsin (and other places) by all appearances looking like adults but acted totally out of character for adults.  These "adults" had to be wearing some costumes or something because these peoples' actions and words were more in line with that of a 4 year olds words and actions.  They acted more like irrational beings having a temper tantrum, who didn't know how to act like civilized human beings, as if they were raised in an alternate uncivilized society.  Here are examples of progressives coming unhinged, acting like childish brats who aren't able to have their way, shouting vulgarities, who are shouting absurdities acting both nuts and angry while trying to disrupt a tea party gathering.

Why do these loons insist on crashing our Tea Party?  Do you see tea party members go and try to disrupt pro-union or progressive events? I don't think so.  Conservatives act like mature adults while progressives act like whiny children. 

This man acts like a 2 year old. 

Language Alert!  This video has profanity and displays what is wrong with the entitlement mentality of the Left.  And, the Left wonders why we call them unpatriotic? This is what happens when one is led to believe you can have your cake and eat it too. 

This video is of liberals acting like unhinged lunatics.  How immature... 

Beck has some thoughts on the above incidences of outlandish behavior.  He asks Are we Americans or are we turning into monsters?

Faith Post: Celebrating Palm Sunday

Fr. Angelo preaches on the contrast between Jesus' triumphant entry into Jerusalem and the curses and condemnations that followed a few days later.

In the next video Father Agnellus urges us to stop sinning. 

Fr Agnellus: Please Stop Sinning by AirMaria

Rod Parsley from Charisma points out that God is your shield and buckler

He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wing shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Psalm 91:4

When you are living your life on God's terms, God provides such protection that the devil won't even know your address! As long as you remain in God's kingdom, He is faithful to protect you. He is your sentry, watching over what He has entrusted to you.
"Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death" (John 8:51). The word "keep," in the original Greek, means we are placed in a position of absolute protection.
Psalm 42:1 says, "As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God." Animals seek the water for two reasons: to quench their thirst and to hide their scent when being hunted.
When we wade out into the deep waters of covenant living, we are surrounded by His presence, protection, and provision.
Abide in Him. He is faithfully watching over the health of your children, protecting your marriage, and guarding your property. No person or thing can protect you from the enemy's attack. Only Your loving Father can shelter you and give you refuge. Run to Him. Hide under His wing and find true security in His feathers.
Father, hide me under Your wing and protect me from all 
attacks and harm. Spread Your wing over my family, 
my church, my friends, and all my belongings. Amen.

Here is a Lenten hymn:
