...it's the snail to the finish

Finish Line

Dear Lord, help me to see the end

And not focus on the journey

To set my mark on the prize

And not the obstacles before me

To never murmur or complain

About the lot I have to bear

Or the apparent lack of answers

To my constant, fervent prayers

Through mountains of disappointment

Or circumstances that annoy

May I be reminded always

That in You there’s peace and joy

When faced with disappointment

Let me never moan and groan

Knowing that a little inconvenience

Is but a stepping stone

Help me to always remember

That the blessing is behind

You ran the race before me

And passed the finish line

Senate Bill 1867 Annihilates the Bill of Rights

by Wonda Elizabeth Perry

President Obama Signing a bill into lawDespite the sixth Amendment’s guarantee of a right to trial, Senate Bill 1867 — the National Defense Authorization Act — would allow the government to indefinitely, lock up anyone they deem a threat. This could include, but is not limited to journalist, bloggers, political activists, anyone who is “supposedly” anti-government, members of various religions, etc.

For those of you still in the dark it’s time to wake up and fight the tyranny, not from those on distant shores, but from those in the highest seats of authority in our own lands.

This new bill would allow American citizens to be arrested, detained, tortured and killed without due process. The basic elements of due process as laid out in the US Constitution in the fourth Amendment, guarantees freedom from search and seizure without probable cause. No person may be detained without probable cause and without being informed of the charges against him.

Under the sixth Amendment those accused of a crime have the right to a speedy and public trial by a jury of their peers, and they must be informed of the charge or charges against them. The defendant has the right to face his accuser or accusers and to effectively defend himself by providing his own witnesses, who are compelled by law to testify, and he is allowed an individual attorney to aid in his defense. Furthermore, it is necessary that the client/attorney relationship be one of trust and confidentiality.

This provision of confidentiality between the defendant and his attorney is also covered under the fifth Amendment which says that no person “shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself.” Additionally both the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments state that due process shall apply to every person.

Autumn Days – a video presentation

A poem celebrating the joys of Autumn!

I don't like Autumn

Autumn Days

I love winter’s chilly blow
Seeing footprints in the snow
Each blade of grass revealing spring
Summer’s sun warms everything

But what I love best of all
Are the reds and browns that tell of fall
Some green remains and that’s find too
Nothing diminishes that golden hue

Hay rides now, with friends in tow
Autumn’s blush on faces glow
Brilliant Maples now will be
A yellow-orange canopy

Cool breezes rustle the fallen leaves
As squirrels hide secrets in the trees
All make ready, for winter is near
Then these bright colors will disappear

God who changes the times and seasons
Has given us so many reasons
To marvel and to make us smile
And with Him come and rest a while

Cause now its harvest time again
Summer’s work has found its end
Time to reap what was sown
And thank the Lord who keeps His own
