Mousie’s Call For Help In Understanding

We were driving through a local neighborhood Sunday….and Mousie freaked out when he spotted this foreign flag being flaunted out in front of this home. Mind you, I got pretty excited, too. This IS America, a sovereign nation, whose flag is NOT the Mexican flag.

You see, in front of OUR house, there is a huge flagpole which properly displays the American flag, as well as our state flag for California.

In case you missed our intro when we began our blog, Morguie was described as not always being ‘politically correct’ in his views. In fact, he was also alleged to be quite opinionated with his views. Up until now, Morguie has been pretty good…kept to himself about tender topics which might be seen as ‘offensive’ to some.

 

Anyone who is a proud citizen of their own country SHOULD be able to speak their piece about patriotism. Mousie posted his views on his FB page only to find disagreement and to be accused of ‘assuming’ too much by this disrespectful flaunting of a non-American flag on American soil.

 

Does this seem wrong to anybody, or is Mousie all wet? We aren’t looking to argue with anyone. We just hope to understand why someone would jump immediately to the defense of such a disrespectful display, instead of seeing this display as what it truly appears to be: un-American. We noted that in this neighborhood there was not one house sporting the American flag, just this one. It made us feel pretty bad, to be honest.

 

Would it be okay if we chose to hang our American flag like this if we were residing in England? In Spain? In Albania? In Canada? In Mexico?

 

We sure hope we can arouse some attention from our American military members, past or present .  If we are wrong to find offense in this act of disrespect, we need to hear it from those who have served in defense of their country, especially.

IF Morguie and CJ are wrong to find a problem with this situation, they will sit down and shut up.

We welcome all views and will not attack anyone if they have a different view. We are hoping to understand this pickle we find ourselves in.

Thanks for any light you can shed here. We hope to learn something out of this.

 

Regards, CJ and Morguie

We stumbled across this by accident tonight.  A gem of a find — a happy accident, indeed!

Sure didn’t see THIS featured in the flashbacks and highlights of his life’s work….it deserves a standing ovation, even if it’s 32 years later.

Thanks for coming by today to share this with us…hope it is enjoyed by you as much as we enjoyed it.

And…long may YOU wave.

Dear Readers:

 

Please DO take great care and be aware always that their are evildoers looking for retribution, revenge, and sometimes the vanquishment of our Western world, our ways,  and our people.

 

Today marks the 13th anniversary of the most awful day ever witnessed on the U.S. home shores, when terrorists massacred thousands in the name of their God and their fanatical extremist doctrine.  We  all tend to be complacent when a little time passes…I do sincerely bid you all a safe and beautiful, normal, uneventful even, late summer day….that none is harmed in the name of war or religious zealotry.  I have an awful rumble… down in the belly, and I feel a sense of foreshadowing…I really hope that we will never have to fear this bloodshed or terrorism again…I just wanted you to know I and the little Furry One will have you all in our thoughts and well-wishes on this somber, unforgettable day of Remembrance…Patriot’s Day, here in America.  Remember the lessons we learned that fateful day. Yes…there are enemies who will try again and stop at nothing to see us destroyed and removed from this world. It is not a stretch to believe it will happen again, or be attempted at least.

 

So keep well and keep yourselves aware…and be ready to dodge harm, should it cross paths with you.  That’s how we will thwart the evil plans and foil those who might conspire to bring on our demise.

Morguie and I want to simply say thank you for reading this blog. We’ve hit on some sad times…a lot of them over the past couple of months…it’s been hard to work up the energy or the creative juices to post much lately…and we apologize.

 

 

 

I learned today that my ex-husband’s mother is quite seriously ill…this is especially hard on my daughters…they are close to both of our mothers. God knows, they were the mainstay and the stability during the harder years of our marriage, and the ensuing post-divorce years. I worked 2 and sometimes 3 jobs to get through those first few years and I would have been at an utter loss to find loving, protective care for those hours I was away….Jan and my Mama both jumped right in to help in every way. I am so grateful that I wasn’t forced to leave them in a stranger’s care. The girls have a very strong bond and now they are facing great concern and worry for GeeMa Jan.

 

I hope I can help ease their sadness and pain over their great worry for her… it’s always hard to find the right words or assemble them into something comforting or meaningful at a time like this.

 

 

 

Funeral directors, who are  supposed to know all of the right things to say and do,  sometimes have trouble finding their way to lend comfort and solace to those closest to us who grieve— and some of us even feel a bit of angst over a family or friend’s death or illness…

But, I must be able to gently comfort my kids and assure them they can lean on Mommy as they try to understand and accept this situation. For now…I do know this:

 

 

 

We only have today…which is a gift — that’s why they call it the ‘present.’

Tomorrow is never guaranteed to us. Live today like there is no tomorrow.

And perhaps today, we here in the Free World might pause,

 

 

take time to give a quiet moment up in thoughts of those who were lost September 11, 2001,  as well as for those who defend our nations against evil and terrorist acts.

 

And, by all means,  we Americans should fly  Old Glory, our beautiful and resilient flag.

 

 

 

Go In Peace, till next time!

 

Thanks…   CJ and Morguie

Eastern Lightning

Eastern Lightning, the Church of Almighty God was created because of the appearance and work of Almighty God, the second coming of the Lord Jesus, Christ of the last days. It is made up of all those who accept Almighty God’s work in the last days and are conquered and saved by His words. It was entirely founded by Almighty God personally and is led by Him as the Shepherd. It was definitely not created by a person. Christ is the truth, the way, and the life. God’s sheep hear God’s voice. As long as you read the words of Almighty God, you will see God has appeared.
