“A penny for your thoughts”

Decades ago, there was much to be said about “the ugly American.”

In my humble opinion (a penny for my thoughts), we are seeing “ugly Americans” behave badly as they criticize Amy Coney Barrett’s qualifications to be a Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. How are “people abroad” understanding this fiasco?

A book was published in 1958–titled The Ugly American–and I, for one, saw it in action.  I was living in Paris, France, with my U.S. Army soldier husband (1959-1961). Indeed, “Americans abroad” were disrespectful of their host country.


…a remarkable woman bombarded with criticism by Democrats.

How many of us could sit therefor hourslistening to vicious statements?? The complimentary remarks by Senators make me grateful that I am a supporter of the Republican party.

Did you watch the proceedings?


The Harbinger II (must read)

Here is the link to an interview with the author of The Harbinger II, Jonathan Cahn.

(Click “skip the ad.”)

Here is his earlier book titled The Paradigm. I was spellbound as I listened to (and watched) Jonathan Cahn as he was interviewed by Erick Stakelbeck on the Praise program on TBN. I’ve searched for the Paradime video (planning to share…) but could not find it on the TBN website (but I’ll keep searching).

Please watch the video and consider reading the two books I’ve referenced.

If this looks familiar, it was published earlier (Sep 15th). I saw the program again at ten o’clock PM (Oct 11th). “It’s a God-thing.”  I went to bed before nine but out of bed (at ten) for “anti-itch” cream. (For the second night, something in my bed has me itching all over.) The life events we are experiencing were prophesized in the Holy Bible.

Sunday was remarkable because three of five blog messages were inspired by my Heavenly Father. Watching a TV-Church program, I knew I needed to write about “An Empty Mansion.”  Later… the poem in “TV-Church all day.”  Now, “The Harbinger II.” 

Next: Change the sheets on my bed so I can get a reasonably good night’s sleep.

An Empty Mansion

1. Here I labor and toil as I look for a home,
Just a humble abode among men,
While in Heaven a mansion is waiting for me
And a gentle voice pleading “come in”.


There’s a mansion now empty, just waiting for me
At the end of life’s troublesome way.
Many friends and dear loved ones will welcome me there
Near the door of that mansion some day.

2. Ever thankful am I that my Savior and Lord
Promised unto the weary sweet rest;
Nothing more could I ask than a mansion above,
There to live with the saved and the blest.

3. When my labor and toiling have ended below
And my hands shall lie folded in rest,
I’ll exchange this old home for a mansion up there
And invite the archangel as guest.
