My Children Will Tell Me...

That they wished they could have lived when I did. The era of Reagan, during the times when considering life as sacred was the norm, when people knew the value of money, when they saved up for something instead of saddling themselves with debt, when most people worked and took pride in being productive instead of taking pride in taking, when having faith in Jesus Christ was not considered extreme, before we had an anti-female gangbanger culture, when we didn't normalize the sexualization of teenagers and allowed them to be teens until they were ready to become adults, and when children DID transition to adulthood. They will also ask me what it was like to have a somewhat liveable taxation level, good healthcare that was there when you needed it.

They will also ask me what it was like when facts mattered, pre-Alinksy, unlike the demoralization that has taken place whereby a segment of our population will only believe what they are told to believe.

Back when you could steer the ship. When you could give your word, keep it, and make life happen. Before the government and media locked out opportunity, collaboration and redefined our lives and our efforts right before our very eyes.

Yes friends, our children's lives and minds will not belong to them. We owe them an eternity of apology for allowing their birthright to be hijacked.

This makes me weep.

But right now we still have a glimmer of opportunity, which we must take, in the words of Deut. 11:

16 Be careful, or you will be enticed to turn away and worship other gods and bow down to them. 17 Then the LORD's anger will burn against you, and he will shut the heavens so that it will not rain and the ground will yield no produce, and you will soon perish from the good land the LORD is giving you. 18 Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 19 Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 20 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates, 21 so that your days and the days of your children may be many in the land that the LORD swore to give your forefathers, as many as the days that the heavens are above the earth.
