Salem is Coming on Easter Sunday!

Really?! Salem for those of you unfamiliar with the program, it is a TV program. It tries to show you evil and destruction in new ways to excite you and glorify the devil and raise him up. This is of course my opinion. Most of the program is conjecture … The devil is a master and much worse and much more scary if we really knew what he could do!

He goes by many names like Satan, Lucifer, the Devil along with witches and has helpers like the she devil of them all Lillith!? Wasn’t she on Cheers!?

This will be short. All the advertisement for upcoming new shows tell you it’s coming on say March 28th or April 6th and so on. Yep, Salem is coming on Easter Sunday too. Maybe it’s just me but it seems almost a subliminal suggestion that Satan is returning the same day, we celebrate that Christ has risen to proclaim the Cross having declared freedom for all from the devil; noted by a great many religions. Of course we all still have a choice with that freedom.

Was it purposed to gain viewers? Was it purposed to advertise the war going on since Lucifer declared he was greater than God? All these thoughts came into my head … and for whatever reasons I was offended. Hollywood, perhaps from it’s beginnings has worked at altering our opinions. Take the program Madam Secretary of late. Clearly, the last episode is supporting President Obama’s action to make Iran appear benevolent and Israel an increasing threat to the world?

You know I use comparisons all the time but generally they are equally worthy but this? I have said often I am slow, but this seems blatant and so easy to ignore. That’s what worries me not to mention the other things going on. Maybe not ignored by some 12 y.o. or 8 y.o. but maybe a couple of them question along with me?

Am I making a too big thing out of it? How much do we let go by over and over again. We can’t see it anymore. Excuses for rape, or cheating on taxes isn’t wrong really. Hey they now tax our saving accounts which is money we already paid taxes on! We are continually being desensitized! Maybe that is what I object to?

Don’t worry about it that this new drug will most likely cause 2300 deaths … it’s going to generate 11 billion by then and we’ll give them back a couple billion for those deaths. So, you don’t like it … there’s the door … !

Whoa! It can’t get out of hand like that! Can it? What do you think?

Maybe I am controversial at times. I worry and pray daily about others getting hurt and things people in general can get hurt by. Been that way since I was 8 y.o. . My life is and has been about helping and not hurting others. Most often, if not always, it seems it is about money. I believe we need to be truthful as well.

Things used to be better in the old days I hear … have we lost faith? Suicide is up!

Hope the post is short enough this time! Thanks for listening! Now I’d like to hear what you think! Short enough? Or not? LOL

Happy Easter to you all out there … hope you get some great cheap bunny candies on sale too! Rick =)

PS I may be entering some kind of challenge to do a blog post everyday for a month

Got Posts? – I have 2 gallons of Milk =)

Do You Like Giving?

I believe you do and yet I haven’t heard much from you.

I am sure that part of that is my fault! A little or a lot and perhaps it’s my website which I am working on! You know that I have been and still asking for help. I am not the guy who refuses to ask for direction! In fact I am a proponent of Real Maps! But that’s another thought!

Yes, as I have mentioned, I speak to people in my small circle (very small circle ) of people I interact fairly often with. Yet they are only a very very few, that have it in your hearts to reach out and give to one another.

The bottom line is simply to help others not to jump down the rabbit hole that you may have fell into yourself. The rabbit hole you fell into and managed to get out of thanks to another. Between all of you there has to be at least a million rabbit holes! Can you maybe help even just one other crawl out and help them heal their wounds? Darn straight you can and YOU KNOW IT!

We all need to hear from you, even if it’s only a comment here and there from time to time! It’s really quite simple! Maybe with enough of you we can create new ways to help each other not even dreamed of yet.

I will mention that many inventions we use now … we didn’t know we needed them until they were created … like an Apple iPhone. Going way back, that we needed a car until Ford figured a way to make them affordable and much more.

Are you up for more fun in your life? Are you up for more satisfaction in your lives? Are you ready to put a smile on your face along with your neighbor’s?

I spoke with just a couple people I know or acquainted with. They had different things they liked to do from helping with cancer drives, or putting their time and effort into changing the foods their kids get in school cafeterias … use your imagination! I also got questions like , do I like giving what? I said well, like giving anything … that led often to more questions! Too many questions for me! This was getting difficult!

I googled, “ so what is I like giving” mean or represent?! Guess what! I Googled (what is I like giving) and got 195,000,000 hits! I got a couple that I reviewed that might help us all!

A neighbor (‘M’) just knocked on my door and had oranges for me and a couple boxes of crackers which is great! You see I use the local pantry and they have been really short on crackers! No kidding!

Anyway, it’s Sunday and here she’s giving me some things I need! Does it help? For sure! She also volunteers at the panty a couple times a week as well! It may seem that to a great many of you it’s really not a big deal. But it is! It happens all over the US … the world every day! The truth is really every little bit helps.

None of us will ever be immune to trials of the everyday occurrences. However, an infection, disease , accident can turn our worlds upside down in a second. We’ll never be free from these possibilities and any one of us could become a recipient in a heart beat! Hence, there are and will be increasing opportunities to help, give and serve each other! I want to get to know you and each other.

We can help one another one by one and maybe even help thousands or 10 thousand like with the ice bucket challenge for ALS, which went viral. That started with just one person too ! A Mr. Pete Frates after discovery that he had come down with ALS (www.alsa.org).

There are so many charities and organizations all over the world. Will there ever be enough? I can’t answer that, but as long as there are hungry, and hurting people not being helped we need to help! I want more of you to get involved following each other and commenting on how we can do it! My wife used to say that I had read over 10,000 books but even so I have discovered I know so little about so many things! I truly need your help and I promise you will never regret it!

Oh! I have to give you the site I found so valuable about giving so here it is …

(http://ilikegiving.com/) I’m pretty sure you’ll find at least one idea you can bring back here that might be easy for you to do but difficult and perhaps impossible for many of us … but we can and will help! They have a similar request as well … Haven’t had a chance to read their book, but check it out and let me know what you think of it – I’d appreciate it!

I will leave you this time with a news article that came out on my wife’s (Connie) and my anniversary 3/13/15 . She went to be with Jesus in the summer of 1996, too long ago it seems to me. This clip again shows what one can do! That was and always had been Connie’s belief as well. Do you have 3 minutes? Again, I promise you won’t regret it!

I wish I could connect you to it directly as you don’t want to miss this!

Love to you all! Rick
