My greatest affliction!

We can become able masters of the human heart, but only if we allow ourselves to be tutored in the school of “heart-felt” personal experience.

 

Kings have their troubles; the peasant has his cares; the wayfarer has many hardships; the Captain has his difficulties, and there were times when the dark valleys were too much for me, but thank God, “The Lord was my Shepherd!”

 

I was also tried in my friends and my counselors; they forsook me! They that ate my bread lifted up their heels against me, but my worst foes were that of my own household; my blood family; but especially my children, they were my greatest affliction.

 

The temptations of poverty and wealth, of honor and reproach, of health and sickness, all took a toll on me. The trials from without disturbed my peace, and from within, marred my joy. No sooner I escaped from one trial I fell into another; emerging from one season of despondency and alarm, I was again brought into the lowest depths, whilst simultaneously the waves of billows were rolling over me.

 

At the time, whatever my frame of mind, whatever ecstasy of depression, was the result of emotions propelled by incomprehensible deep hurt. Having been instructed in life’s personal experience, I have matured with God’s grace through the years, and with my Lord’s inexhaustible mercy, He placed me in “Green Pastures.” My soul, let my Lord’s grace continue to cheer and counsel thee,” this day!

FLIGHTS OF INSANITY TOWERS OF TRAGEDY

Posted in 9/11 Tragedy with tags , , , , , , on September 11, 2015 by sheriffali

9/11 The Innocent Were On The Flight

They Knew Not Their Plights

The Ideologically Demented Were Also On Board

Fanatically Disillusioned Was Their Concept Of God

 

Anguish And Anger They Commandeered The Planes

With Impunity For Themselves But For Life Only Disdain

Instructions From Sheol They Crashed Into The Towers

Unimaginable Destruction In Less Than An Hour

 

With So Many Lives Headed For The Grave

New City Rescuers Displayed The Meaning Of Brave

Rushing Into The Buildings Not Knowing What To Expect

Down Came The Towers And The Smell Of Death

 

Father Of Light Giver Of Grace

In This Darkness Show Us Thine Face

This Tragedy We Cannot Comprehend

But This Evil You Will Bring To An End

President Obama A Man Of Passion And Compassion Will Rename Mount McKinley In Alaska To Its Original Native American Name “Denali” – “The Great One”

Posted in American History, Native Americans, Obama's Compassion, Politics with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 31, 2015 by sheriffali

[NYT] President Obama announced on Sunday thatMount McKinley was being renamed Denali, using his executive power to restore an Alaska Native name with deep cultural significance to the tallest mountain in North America.

 

The move came on the eve of Mr. Obama’s trip to Alaska, where he will spend three days promoting aggressive action to combat climate change, and is part of a series of steps he will make there meant to address the concerns of Alaska Native tribes.

 

It is the latest bid by the president to fulfill his 2008 campaign promise to improve relations between the federal government and the nation’s Native American tribes, an important political constituency that has a long history of grievances against the government.

 

Denali’s name has long been seen as one such slight, regarded as an example of cultural imperialism in which a Native American name with historical roots was replaced by an American one having little to do with the place.

 

The central Alaska mountain has officially been called Mount McKinley for almost a century. In announcing that Sally Jewell, the secretary of the interior, had used her power to rename it, Mr. Obama was paying tribute to the state’s Native population, which has referred to the site for generations as Denali, meaning “the high one” or “the great one.”

 

The peak, at more than 20,000 feet, plays a central role in the creation story of the Koyukon Athabascans, a group that has lived in Alaska for thousands of years.

 

Mr. Obama, freed from the political constraints of an impending election in the latter half of his second term, was also moving to put to rest a yearslong fight over the name of the mountain that has pit Alaska against electorally powerful Ohio, the birthplace of President William McKinley, for whom it was christened in 1896.

 

The government formally recognized the name in 1917, and efforts to reverse the move began in Alaska in 1975. In an awkward compromise struck in 1980, the national park surrounding it was named Denali National Park and Preserve, but the mountain continued to be called Mount McKinley.

 

Senator Lisa Murkowski, Republican of Alaska, introduced legislation in January to rename the peak, but Ohio lawmakers sought to block the move. In June, an Interior Department official said in testimony before Congress that the administration had “no objection” to Ms. Murkowski’s proposed change.

 

In a video released on Sunday, Ms. Murkowski cheered Mr. Obama’s decision.

 

{For the Obama Critics, remember that American was founded on two monumental crimes – The Genocide Of 120 Million Native Americans; And The Enslavement Of Africans}.

CLINTON CAMPAIGN - HAPPY BIRTHDAY PRESIDENT OBAMA

Evil Can’t See It But President Barack Obama Is Our North Star!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 15, 2014 by sheriffali

President Obama embodies Hope, Encouragement, Love, Compassion, Wisdom, Strength, Balance, Resolute, Spirit, And Yes He is Our North Star.

 

The words of Republican Legislator Frederick Douglass on September 25, 1883, couldn’t be any more precise than it is today. Mr. Douglass said of the colored man, in this case, President Obama;

 

 “If he comes in ignorance, rags and wretchedness he conforms to the popular belief of his character, and in that character he is welcome; but if he shall come as a Gentleman, a Scholar and a Statesman, he is hailed as a contradiction to the national faith concerning his race, and his coming is resented as impudence.” [Republican Frederick Douglass, September 25 1883]

 

Even though when President Obama took Office on January 20, 2009, America was upside-down from the previous administration and millions had lost their homes and those that managed to keep their homes, it was under water. More than a thousand banks had failed wiping out Depositors that had more than $250,000.00 on deposit. Jobs were falling at the rate of 8,000 per month in the last half of 2008 to the point where unemployment stood at 10.2%

 

The Stock Market had hit severe lows and our financial system was on the verge of collapse. Due to lack of Regulations by Republicans, Crooks, Liars and Thieves had literally pick-pocketed the American people and let us not forget, we had two wars spinning out of control at a cost of 5.1 trillion dollars that was unpaid. We had a 1.1 trillion dollar unpaid bill for two tax cuts for the rich, and the country was hopeless and in despair.

 

We still have a long way to go, but Mr. Obama has placed the country back on track, irrespective of what the Pollsters, News Media and the disingenuous Republicans try to tell you. Result; 10 Million jobs and unemployment stands at 6.1%; The Banks are stable and so is our financial system; The Housing Market has rebounded; The Stock Market is at all time highs and yet, uninformed, uneducated, ignorant and brainwashed Americans, propelled by the untruths of the Republicans and their Mouth Piece, Fox News, there is a very visible disdain for Mr. Obama.

 

The chaos in the Middle-East is the direct result of Bush and Cheney’s reckless invasion of Iraq, that took the lives of 4,500 soldiers; wounded 50,000 plus and left 75,000 plus with severe mental problems.

 

And despite all the good that President Obama has done, he has been treated with the utmost disrespect; obstructed every step of the way by the Do Nothing Republican Congress.

 

What is amazing about our North Star is he lives up to his calling, because despite the people that totally trashes him in Public, Mr. Obama has never repaid them with evil. People are annoyed with Obama because he is never angered, even in the most difficult of circumstances. President Obama is no contradiction; He is what He is; A Statesman; A Gentleman and a Scholar.

 BARACK OBAMA - OUR NORTH STAR

GETHSEMANE TEARS!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 17, 2014 by sheriffali

“To a more peaceful and loving world”

The hour had come and the tears begun
He stood His ground and did not run,
God in the flesh facing death
The Almighty had no regret

With blood of sweat for our expiation
He chose to save us from damnation,
What did Jesus see through His tear filled eyes?
With pangs that made Him cry

He did no wrong, His heart had no avarice
Do we comprehend His penitential sacrifice?
His miracles so great on water He peregrinate
This He did to save us from hell and Hades gate

A crown of thorns and leather striking His back
He carried the cross to save us from the dark,
On the cross God’s precious and loving Son
Eloi, Eloi, the price is paid and now it is done…

JESUS CHRIST APRIL 17 2014
“No greater love is there than to lay down one’s life for another.” [JESUS CHRIST] Labor to help others and strive to encourage them!  The Lord laid down His life so we can rise again. If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. Those that are truly forgiven are anxious not to offend again – this is possession of “Justification.”
