Palm Sunday


palm

Today as Christians we honor Christ’s triumphant entry into the Holy City of Jerusalem. In many churches the reading of the Passion occurs today, the last Sunday of the Holy Season of Lent.

Matthew 21:1-11 Amplified Bible (AMP)
The Triumphal Entry

When they approached Jerusalem and had reached Bethphage, at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples [ahead], 2 saying to them,“Go into the village opposite you, and at once you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her; untie them and bring them to Me. 3 If anyone says anything to you, you should say, ‘The Lord needs them,’ and without delay the owner will send them [with you].” 4 This happened so that what was spoken by the prophet would be fulfilled, saying:

5
“Tell the daughter of Zion (the people of Jerusalem),
‘Behold, your King is coming to you,
Gentle and mounted on a donkey,
Even on a colt, the foal of a beast of burden.’”

6 Then the disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them, 7 and they brought the donkey and [a]the colt, and [b]placed their coats on them; and Jesus sat on the coats. 8 Most of the crowd spread their coats on the road [as before a king], while others were cutting branches from the trees and spreading them on the road. 9 The crowds that went ahead of Him, and those that followed Him, were shouting [in praise and adoration],

“[c]Hosanna to the Son of David (Messiah);
Blessed [praised, glorified] is He who comes in the name of the Lord;
Hosanna in the highest [heaven]!”

10 When He entered Jerusalem, all the city was trembling [with excitement], saying, “Who is this?” 11 And the crowds were saying, “This is the prophet Jesus, from Nazareth in Galilee.”

Footnotes:

Matthew 21:7 A colt that had not been used was considered holy by the Jews and was fit to carry a king.

Matthew 21:7 A sign of homage and recognition of Jesus’ kingship.

Matthew 21:9 “Save now!” or “Save I pray!”

International Human’s Day!


Origin68-Human-Being-T-Shirt1

Well before we go any further we are living in an age where everyone gets offended by everything…for the love of humanity grow set of brass balls and get on with life.  Be warned I’m not politically correct nor do I ever want to be!

I’ve been giving some serious thought to something.  Today I log into Facebook and it informs that it is “International Women’s Day.”  It got the old Muse working…so first let’s see what this day is about… “International Women’s Day, originally called International Working Women’s Day, is celebrated on March 8 every year. In different regions the focus of the celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation, and love towards women for women’s economic, political, and social achievements. Started as a Socialist political event, the holiday blended the culture of many countries, primarily in Europe, especially those in the Soviet Bloc. In some regions, the day lost its political flavor, and became simply an occasion for people to express their love for women in a way somewhat similar to a mixture of Mother’s Day and Valentine’s Day. In other regions, however, the political and human rights theme designated by the United Nations runs strong, and political and social awareness of the struggles of women worldwide are brought out and examined in a hopeful manner. Some people celebrate the day by wearing purple ribbons.”Wikipedia

We need to stop these bloody days that just single out certain individuals for the sake of political correctness, appeasement or grandstanding!  Everyday should be just plain human’s day. Continue reading International Human’s Day!

Nous arrêter et réfléchir ce matin sur les événements terribles et tragiques qui ont eu lieu hier soir à Paris. Je prie pour que les citoyens de Paris trouvent du réconfort et la paix dans leur chagrin. Nous devons nous tenir en solidarité avec le peuple de Paris et de la nation de la France.

Maintenant peut-être la classe dirigeante va voir pourquoi les croisades originaux arrivé. La guerre est à la porte et il est temps pour les soldats de la Croix de balayer la peste du mal à partir de la face de la terre! Temps d’offrir nos prières à la Dame de Lourdes et de demander de l’aide de ceux qui vont défendre la Foi! Viva Paris!

All those with Chronic Pain and those that advocate  take heed.  Walgreens the pharmacy that treats us with Chronic Pain Disorders like subhuman garbage has begun the process  of buying Rite Aid Pharmacy. From NBC Buisness News: “Pharmacy giant Walgreens Boots Alliance has reached a deal to buy rival Rite Aid, creating a merger of two of the nation’s largest drugstore chains. The deal announced Tuesday involved Walgreens buying Rite Aid for $9 a share, or $9.4 billion. The total size of the deal is $17.2 billion including acquired net debt, Walgreens said.”

Reach out to regulators and stop this merger! I’m officially leaving Rite Aid now, until this matter is settled.

Just Say No! Stand up for Chronic Pain Sufferers and Boycott both Pharmacies!
