From this morning:

Julie is point on in her Facebook Post! Thank for allowing us to share Julie! Yes, what happened to Social Distancing??? Did the Governor issue a cease desist order to each one?  I no longer get any press releases from the Governor, just her PAC emails wanting money!!!! LOL!!!

I almost can’t get a grip on this one. Families can’t visit loved ones in hospitals and nursing facilities, businesses can’t fully open or open at all, churches are still locked down to 25%, no funerals, no weddings, no rodeo or other sporting events, there were no graduations etc, schools are still hanging in the air about whether they’ll have fall classes .. —but CONGRATULATIONS to the thousands protesting in the street —NO HEALTH ORDER in place there?


Statement from House Republican Whip Rod Montoya (Farmington), in response to Governor’s press conference on May 28:

“Governor Lujan Grisham just can’t help disrespecting and marginalizing the importance of faith to the people of New Mexico. How in the world can the governor continue to limit worship services to 25%, at the same time allowing gyms to open to 50%? It’s increasingly obvious how little she thinks of your right to practice your religious beliefs as you so choose! Most churches and pastors across New Mexico have been patient up to this point, but there comes a time when enough is enough.”

I am at a loss for words on this one, except, DISGUSTING!!!! FGGAM MEDIA CENTER just received this news release from the Republican Governors Association:

For Liberal Lujan Grisham, Diamonds Are A Governor’s Best Friend

New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham is the latest Democrat to decide that the rules they impose on their citizens to address the COVID-19 pandemic don’t apply to them. A bombshell report reveals that the governor violated her own stay-at-home order, which closed non-essential businesses, to stock up on some high-end jewelry.

Local Albuquerque news station KRQE broke the news in a scathing story on Tuesday:



The store manager told the station that she “didn’t know about [the governor’s purchase] until after it happened,” and that “no one was allowed in the stores at that time” due to the governor’s order. Lujan Grisham’s order also specifically prohibited curbside pickup at the time.

After getting caught with her hand in the jewelry box, Lujan Grisham gave conflicting explanations to the media about how the transaction happened and even who picked up the jewelry, first saying it was a campaign staffer, and then changing her story to claim it was a “friend.”

Other local jewelry store owners interviewed expressed frustration that they lost “hundreds of thousands of dollars” by complying with the governor’s order while she openly flouted her own rules. When asked about the double standard, Lujan Grisham responded “it depends on who you know.”

“If you thought Nancy Pelosi’s ice cream freezer was out-of-touch, wait until you meet Governor Michelle Antoinette and her lockdown shopping spree,” said RGA Communications Director Amelia Chassé Alcivar. “While she was requiring New Mexico’s small businesses and families to make major sacrifices to protect public health, Michelle Lujan Grisham couldn’t even go a few weeks without treating herself to new jewelry. New Mexicans deserve better.”

Watch the scathing report below:


We are in constant prayer for PEACE, the PEACE OF JESUS!

Around midnight the rioting began in Albuquerque after a peaceful night of protest Riot in Albuquerque

NM Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham on Riots

At least sixty Secret Service officers and special agents sustained multiple injuries in three days of violent clashes near the White House. The Lincoln Memorial and National Mall World War II Memorial are among the sites defaced with graffiti. Four police officers were shot early this morning in St. Louis and were taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The ongoing violence has forced store closings around the country.

President Trump said late yesterday that he is taking “immediate action” to mobilize “all available federal resources” to stop looting and riots across the country

Where Are We; Where Are We Going

From Pastor Jerry McCullah:

I was born in Granby, Missouri in 1946, and I only have a small amount of memories of the ‘40’s.  Most of my maturing and developmental years were the 50’s and 60’s.   In those years, influenced by loving and grateful parents, and a nurturing school system that started each day with prayer and a salute to our American Flag, I acquired a great love for America.   Our nation had recently united with other nations in the common cause to end the world of tyranny in WWII.

In the aftermath of this Great War, and ending the rise and control from Germany and Japan, rather than take control and dominance of these rouge nations under their dictators, America helped them to rebuild into productive world citizens.

Most of my life, I have been aware that we in America have had both liberals and conservatives.   And, in my then limited understanding of political structures, I believed they both loved America and were willing to fight for her freedoms and security, either on the battlefield of war or in Congress.

However, today we have the Left and leftists which are not the traditional liberals I grew up among.   They hate America, and all she stands for.  This truth is observed in the ways they are attempting to train or influence our children and grandchildren that it is right, rational and proper to hate America, as well.   The end result they seek is the transformation of America into socialism.   One of their clear agendas is to be totally secular in their mindset and to raise the hatred of Christianity, Judaism and all forms of moral religion to the level of persecution as seen in other socialist/communist countries.

They are systematically turning Americans against each other, through fears of various heightened difficulties such as Covid19 and all its ever-changing rules and protocols.  When that fear began to wane, they took advantage of our weakened state of mind, amid a horrific tragedy of unjustified homicide, by refueling our age-old difficulties of racism.   So now, in our fears and anger hate rises to white hot fevers.   The leftists are dividing and distracting us from standing together for rights and freedoms to fighting in the streets.   They are effectively staging a Civil War where the lines of differences are hard to find.   No more North and South, but possibly from Living Room to Bedroom.   As such, America cannot, and will not stand.

What can we do?     Truth is, we can do little or nothing to change the course of the tidal wave rushing in on America, but Beloved, God can do something.    We must have a heart revival.   Our national heart needs to return to loving and respecting our Holy God.   That will bring new life into the Church, followed by a love for country, truth, justice, family and freedom.

We do have a problem here perhaps.   Allow me to make a few points before you judge.

This past Sunday we celebrated in the Christian Church, Pentecost Sunday.  Many were looking ahead to this event as a turning point where God was going to ignite a great out-pouring of His Spirit to revive the Church and usher in a far-reaching Spiritual Awakening.  However, are we missing something when we lay the burden on God to revive us?

When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”  (Acts 2:1-4)

This marks the day when the Holy Spirit of God came and took up permanent residence in redeemed humans.  By doing this, Christ’s Church was born ordained by God.   Pentecost!

“When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people, 14 if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”  (2 Chronicles 7:13-14)

“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves” . . . humble themselves!   I need to humble myself before a Holy God; even in the midst of others within His Church, I, without reservation become humbled by the awareness of God’s Holy Presence and Glory.  I make myself low.  I do not consider that I have acquired or accomplished anything to be recognized as significant apart from Christ.  I repent of all sinfulness, pride, arrogance, thinking myself better than anyone; I, with sobbing, moaning, and tears I lay my now empty life at the feet of my Savior refusing to arise until all is accomplished within by the Holy Spirit.  Beloved, this is something God is waiting for each of His people to initiate out of the depths of love for their God.

That is where I want to make a few remarks concerning the Church.

We just honored the birth of the Church of the LORD Jesus Christ on this past Pentecost Sunday.  We who are called by His name are the Church, not because we earned our right to be part, but He gave His own Blood to purchase your place within.  Christians all over this land are quick to criticize the Church before the world.  And beloved, the Church is Christ’s treasure!  It is His beloved Bride!   It is Christ’s constant Joy!

Notice the defining phrases used to express our LORD’s love for the Church in Ephesians 5:25-27:

 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the Church and gave Himself for her, 26 that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the Word, 27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious Church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.”

Brothers and sisters, in the same way Jesus thanks the Father for the Church, so should you!  We must show our highest regard and love for the Church He died to establish.  Thank your Heavenly Father for the Church!   Make His Church your special Joy!  Love the Church!  Love the members you find within the Church.   When you love people intensely they become a constant source of joy, especially as they begin to respond in kind to your love.   Learn to enjoy the Church.   The Apostle Paul delighted in the Church, so should you!

“Therefore, my beloved and longed-for brethren, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, beloved.”   (Philippians 4:1)

“ . . . just as it is right for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart, inasmuch as both in my chains and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel, you all are partakers with me of grace.”   (Philippians 1:7) 

Do you have the people of God in and on your heart?  There in your local Body of Christ, your Church, are the members of that Body in your heart?  They should be.  Do you care for them?  Do you long for them when apart?  Or do you find yourself reacting in negative fashion to attitudes or actions that disappoint you in some of the Church family?  When you do, you close your heart to those persons.  Open your heart to loving the Church people; do not become the negative one that stymies the power of the Church.

Love the Church through your prayers.  Jesus ever lives to intercede for His Church, should you do less?   Beloved, people who are negative, complaining, and critical are not praying for the Church!   You will not act in cruel ways to people you personally spend time in prayer over.   Find time and ways to pray for each other.  The Church that prays for each other, privately and corporately, are not fighting with one another.

Why am I saying all of these things in the face of our troubled times?   First, because the Church needs to be revived, genuinely and supernaturally because our humility before God initiated it; secondly, the world, America, needs to see the true Church in love and power.  Come on, Church . . . Pray On!


The attorneys representing George Floyd’s family and Hennepin County officials have released competing autopsy results, agreeing that the death is a homicide but disagreeing over the cause. Ex-Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, who was seen on video pinning his knee on Floyd’s neck, has been charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.

After our run this morning Daisy and I stopped by LBJ, I cannot vote because I am an registered Independent. I believe that is un-America. I told the Police Officer in the parking lot that they would not let Daisy vote so we were going home! Not many cars at all in the parking lot at LBJ at 7:15am. Many have voted earlier.

Early Voting, absentee ballots a Big Hit in NM

Today, we are providing the results of our research after reviewing endorsements from our friends at Right to Life Committee of New Mexico, legislative voting records, public comments, candidate questionnaires from the Albuquerque Journal, and endorsements from the pro-abortion political group, Planned Parenthood Votes New Mexico.

Candidates in GREEN have stated positions and/or cast votes consistent with a PRO-LIFE platform.

Candidates in RED have stated positions and/or cast votes consistent with a PRO-ABORTION platform.
