It's With a Certain Hand-picked Emphasis Added Thing

Dear America,

"Coincidence is God's way of staying anonymous."
Albert Einstein

so, on a good day -- being a girl of faith --
this somewhat nerve-wracking, accidental sequence of events -- as if the country is simply stringing it along coincidence after coincidence -- is, for all intents and purposes, just a part of the plan.

And it's like, oh, wonderful -- we can all be rest assured; God's got this.  No need to fret.

Oh but what to do with myself.

The foundation is shaking, my mind is trembling, my spirit seems broken.

Here I am, now reaching for my White Eagle handbook,  as I naturally search -- as in, to seek and to find exactly what this moment merits:

When in doubt, do nothing.  
Be still, have patience and wait.  
Learn to be still, my children, 
to be calm and still and wait for God; 
God will not fail you."

Which suddenly brings to mind something from Sunday...Joel Osteen's message.  Osteen was like, notice how we don't have to teach our children impatience, how to throw tantrums, to give in to the rather organic, carnal nature bubbling up from the depths of our soul.  It just comes up and out, no holds barred.  Boom. 

 I'm three and I want              now.

From three, we eventually make it to kindergarten, get past grade school and if we are lucky, continue to grow and expand our horizons and develop a hard earned character that obviously makes us better humans.  It takes awhile; for some, it may even take a lifetime; for others, it may never come.

But the thing is, nobody had to show us how to be at our worst; that part of ourselves seems to come about naturally, without thinking, and certainly without thinking like God.

And when we individually, then collectively, begin to show this side of ourselves, having clearly drifted far, far away from the things that Divine Providence divined in us, how in the world can any one of us be surprised when it comes to the results?

Coincidences collide.  Consequences arrive right on cue.   

And next thing you know, it's the end of the story.  End of an era.  The end times come marching in with aplomb -- and don't look now, but look at how that ego of ours just eats it up... madly, deeply, unapologetic-ally, and without ceasing.

Perhaps I am being a wee bit too melodramatic.

Now recently, my good fortune allowed for me to break for spring with my girl, home from school.  It was, coincidentally, perfect timing; for this girl, yours truly, was well on her way to committing some kind of high crime or misdemeanor, for sure, given the state of absurdity in this republican primary.  Let's just say, my patience was not wearing thin, it was gone.  The forced pause from my world ultimately gave way to being fully unplugged for over a week!  And what a God-send! Who knew?  (tee hee)

[There are no accidents.]

But there are plenty of ironies right about now...

Take for example how some of The Right have taken to Trump just as some of The Left flocked behind Obama back in the day; it's like, what weaknesses, right?    What do you mean, suspect associations?   What do you mean, narcissistic tendencies, with a penchant for throwing tantrums, name calling, and acting like he is twelve?  So we solve this problem masterminded by the political elitists by electing a populist elitist who has more money than God? Really; God doesn't need cash or credit, bullion or billions.

The biggest question that seems to continually make my head spin seems to stem from the position of character:  is this really the best we've got?   There are three hundred million of us and whether considering what's on the left or right --  this is it?   A Leftist/Socialist or some kind of right wing composite developed in a high rise in New York City like a picante sauce?  

And make no mistake, a quick study of the followers arrives at very much the same place, more or less.

Desperation made this.

House of Cards aside, Hollywood couldn't put this scenario together any better if they tried.  The conditions, the bureaucracy, the corruption, the wanton Congress, the usurpation of the law, the absence of our sovereign border protecting the very security of the nation, the demolition  of our military, the liberal re-write of our history and traditions, the growth of Washington's power grab - no matter which party is in charge, created THIS -- this natural escalation by tantrum.  Look for the perfume to come out soon...

It's not like we needed a lesson; it just happened...organically...

T  A  N  T  R   U  M  P

and continuing to repeat myself like a good politician....

On a good day, all of this might even feel like God has a plan, that God is still in charge.  That this tantrum is essential, part and parcel of things to come in order to rebuild and reform America -- an America so lost and all alone these days.  And then again, from the perspective of a rather warped world -- who needs any more of the Divine when we've got Trump? right?  

And sadly, it's not like any other possibilities are jumping up and down in tandem.

UGH.  It's so easy to feel overwhelmed.

My senses feel nothing but loss, a great sense of shame, as I struggle to take note and keep a diary of this day in the life of this American girl.  It's all a gosh darned shame thing.

The thing is, human nature is so easily ruled by our feelings; and people in power know this.  And when we can be swayed by how we feel, we not only limit ourselves, we create the future from a position of feeling depressed and oppressed at the same time.

Oh, the art of persuasion and the allure of temptation reigns high. Hmmmmm take a pill or do the work and walk off the extra weight all by myself?  America has been stuck on the quick fix for ages; we are constantly looking outside of ourselves for all the answers.

The manipulation -- whether it's from inside the Trump campaign, or the media, or the other campaigns fighting to stay alive -- is propaganda, at best.  And to be perfectly fair and forthright -- it's just the way the game is played.  This is politics.  And like Churchill once said, "when going through hell, keep going."

As God smiles down upon us and says something like...all of the answers come from within, my child.

So to end THIS day on the old G thing,
here's something GOOD from Marco Rubio, from last night, as he bowed out of the race with the grace of God:

.....That we find ourselves at this point is not surprising, for the warning signs have been here for close to a decade. In 2010, the tea party wave carried me and others into office because not enough was happening and that tea party wave gave Republicans a majority in the House, but nothing changed. In 2014, those same voters gave Republicans a majority in the Senate and, still, nothing changed. And I blame some of that on the conservative movement, a movement that is supposed to be about our principles and our ideas. But I blame most of it on our political establishment.
A political establishment that for far too long has looked down at conservatives, looked down at conservatives, as simple-minded people. Looked down at conservatives as simply bomb-throwers. A political establishment that for far too long has taken the votes of conservatives for granted, and a political establishment that has grown to confuse cronyism for capitalism, and big business for free enterprise. I endeavored over the last 11 months to bridge this divide within our party and within our country because I know that after eight years of Barack Obama this nation needs a vibrant and growing conservative movement and it needs a strong Republican Party to change the direction now of this country or many of the things that are going wrong in America will become permanent, and many of the things makes us a special country will be gone. America needs a vibrant conservative movement, but one that’s built on principles and ideas, not on fear, not on anger, not on preying on people’s frustrations.
A conservative movement that believes in the principles of our Constitution, that protects our rights and limits the power of government. A conservative movement committed to the cause of free enterprise, the only economic model where everyone can climb without anyone falling. A conservative movement that believes in a strong national defense and a conservative movement that believes in the strong Judeo-Christian values that are the formation of our nation...

...But after tonight it is clear that while we are on the right side, this year, we will not be on the winning side. I take great comfort in the ancient words which teaches us that in their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps. And so yet, while this may not have been the year for a hopeful and optimistic message about our future, I still remain hopeful and optimistic about America...
...I ask the American people: Do not give in to the fear. Do not give in to the frustration. We can disagree about public policy, we can disagree about it vibrantly, passionately. But we are a hopeful people, and we have every right to be hopeful. For we in this nation are the descendants of go-getters. In our veins runs the blood of people who gave it all up so we would have the chances they never did. We are all the descendants of someone who made our future the purpose of their lives. We are the descendants of pilgrims. We are the descendants of settlers. We are the descendants of men and women that headed westward in the Great Plains not knowing what awaited them. We are the descendants of slaves who overcame that horrible institution to stake their claim in the American Dream. We are the descendants of immigrants and exiles who knew and believed that they were destined for more, and that there was only one place on earth where that was possible. This is who we are, and let us fight to ensure that this is who we remain. For if we lose that about our country, we will still be rich and we will still be powerful, but we will no longer be special.
...And I want you to know that I will continue every single day to search for ways for me to repay some of this extraordinary debt that I owe this great country. And I want to leave with an expression of gratitude to God in whose hands all things lie. He has a plan for every one of our lives. Everything that comes from God is good. God is perfect. God makes no mistakes. And he has things planned for all of us. And we await eagerly to see what lies ahead. And so I leave tonight with one final prayer, and I use the words of King David because I remain grateful to God:
“Yours O Lord is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, indeed everything that is in the heavens and the earth. Yours is the dominion, O Lord, and you exalt yourself as head overall. Both riches and honor come from you and you rule over all. And in your hand is power and might and it lies in your hand to make great and to strengthen everyone.”
May God strengthen our people. May God strengthen our nation. May God strengthen the conservative movement. May God strengthen the Republican Party. May God strengthen our eventual nominee. And may God always bless and strengthen this great nation, the United States of America. Thank you and God bless you all. Thank you very much.
Magnificent, indeed.
The only thing to add is the hand-picked emphasis, above.

Make it  a Good Day, G

ps...if, at the end of the day, this girl is going to be forced to get behind Trump, make no mistake -- kicking and screaming will come first.  Just sayin'
