I woke up this morning with a very heavy feeling. I made the mistake of scanning Facebook before I went to bed. I do that from time to time during the day to take the temperate of this divided nation. The division grows, which breaks my heart. It seems to me we have or are nearly coming apart at the seems. The Republicans and Democrats hate each other more than ever. The ugly was really bad yesterday. Can you imagine being a child growing up in this mess?
Yesterday was very tough for me as I got the word that three people that were family or friends of my friends, had passed away because of COVID-19.
While the America people fight about almost everything, children are dying.I am still so very stunned by the fact I live in a state that kills babies but I cannot get a haircut. Think hard on that. I feel I am in another world. It almost makes me speechless. Dead in my tracks as I think about how human life has been so very devalued. I am just completely stunned that abortions continue in New Mexico while many, many businesses are closed during this pandemic! I can’t get a haircut, but abortions still take place.
I am also sadden how too many people devalue the lives of our senior citizens. It saddens me very much when people will look at those of have passed away during this pandemic and note, “well they were old.” Well yes….I am old according to some. Every life is to be valued and respected. Life is most Holy. Life is a precious gift from God. It is not nice at all to speak down about the elderly. I have countless friends in their 90’s who are so very fun to talk with and share wisdom with me. I read the Bible to a man in his mid 80’s by phone and he is so tickled when I do that. Many of my advisors are 80 plus.
I love all people. I have given my life to love on people. I am so very sad to say I see so many Christian behaving badly. To much hate spewing out of mouths. To many bad graphics posted on Facebook. Calling people stupid, crazy, using obscene words…not good.
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another:
just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.
By this all people will know that you are my disciples,
if you have love for one another.
I was attacked yesterday on Faceboook, one lady called me crazy….yes I am crazy for Jesus. This lady, like many, just reads headlines of stories on Facebook and then determines from that short headline what is in the post. Not good. Read the entire story, go deep into it, then make your conclusion. I had more attacks yesterday, I am a registered Independent. We are a non-partisan ministry, we are all sold out to God, not a political party. We are not to be a PR machine for a political party or candidate. We are a PR machine for God. For God’s Glory Alone Ministries. That is the name God gave me when he formed this ministry. How dare I do otherwise.
As America fights a itself….we come apart at the seams. Only God can heal this land. Man cannot. It will take people giving their lives to Jesus. It will take a miracle for this to happen. Too many Americans are acting like they are on the throne of God….how dare them! Too many Americans have made politics their God. How dare them?
You are a king, then!” said Pilate.
Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. In fact, the reason I was born and came into the world is to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.”
Do you not know that God knows everything you say and do and post on Facebook? God is an all knowing God.
Do you not realize that Hate does not solve anything? Do you not know that anger does no good? All you are doing is pouring gas on a fire. Name calling is so awful. This type of behavior is very sinful. It seems many do not care. This hate and anger is growing, I hate to think what this upcoming election process will look like.
Whoever is of God hears the words of God. The reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God.” John 8:47
For America to come back to God the killing of His babies has got to stop!
I try my best for God in showing ‘tough love.’ My folks loved me to heaven and back, but showed me ‘tough love’ at times, they would discipline me because they loved me so much. Some people are turned off by me, because of my ways, but so be it.
Americans are making politics their God more than ever.
Americans love to say, “God Bless America.” Well, HE has! We are the ones not blessing HIM with our behavior and actions, we should be saying, “America, Bless God!”

Q: Where in the Bible does it say that abortion is wrong, even murder? – A.D.
A: Abortion has divided our nation like no other issue in recent times. The Bible places the highest value on human life. It is sacred and of inestimable worth to God, who created it “in His own image.” The Bible recognizes the unborn as being fully human.
The Bible says, “For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; wonderful are Your works…. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret” (Psalm 139:13-15, NASB).
We must never think that we can solve one moral crisis by condoning another, especially the crime of murder, for unrestrained abortion is nothing less than that. We have an obligation to show others what God says about living self-controlled lives and being responsible for our moral actions, as God defines them.
God is the Creator of life and the Sustainer of life. He has given the “seed” of life and breath of life, and our responsibility is to protect these sacred gifts given by the Father in Heaven. This is why the hot button of abortion reaches the height of holocaust. Man has no right to steal from God or destroy the giving of life that belongs to Him.
In God’s great love, He gives life that bears the image of God. The issue of abortion is not whether people have the right to terminate the life of a child; the real issue is whether or not people will insist on running their own lives according to worldly standards that oppose God’s law. Contentment comes when people surrender to God and allow Him to guide their lives according to His loving righteousness.

From April 22nd:
I just finished my run with Daisy and it is a time I also talk with God…more importantly to listen to God. I have been reporting and preaching against abortion for years…and the Lord told me this morning to speak out MORE in LOVE for His babies. So I prayed and asked the Lord what do I say?
How can God be happy with us here in New Mexico that will continue to kill His babies? I am just completely stunned that abortions continue in New Mexico while many, many businesses are closed during this pandemic! I can’t get a haircut, but abortions still take place.What a horrific message that sends. Governor Lujan Grisham in the love of Jesus, you have the power to end the killing of babies, you have the power to close those clinics at this time! I ask you in the love of Jesus, please. I first met you years ago when you visited the ARC of New Mexico “White Hat” Award Ceremony, which was given to Heather Wilson. You cared enough to come visit with all of us at the ARC of NM. (I was on the Board of Directors at that time) You saw how the clients of the ARC had overcome many disabilities in their life. They were given life by God and their Mother. Please give all the babies the opportunity we all have, the gift of life. I would welcome to visit with you on this and other matters. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org Please help God’s babies.
Governor, you have been very aggressive in fighting the pandemic, saying every life counts, Thank you for that, but why do you not put that same aggressiveness into ending abortion in our state?
