Today’s Experience with “Meet the Press”

While watching “Meet the Press,” I thought, “I do hope the Republicans do not pick Gov. Bob McDonald of Virginia to be their nominee for VP. I’d hate to see that Cheshire smile every other day!” (God forbid!)

Host, David Gregory had excellent questions for Rick Santorum who was startled with the reach into his background. He had to “think quick” and come up with answers that avoided admitting, “You got me!”  He could not defend his record and could only launch into tirades against President Obama’s record…as he, Rick, sees it. E.J. Dione sees President Obama winning, if the election was today.

My heart was warm when Peggy Noonan brought up the way women are being spoken of in the politics of today.

If you missed “Meet the Press”, please set your DVR to record the re-run at 2:00pm EDT on MSNBC.  Enjoy today’s games!

Woman Wielding Words

I just read a post called “Why Are Women Letting Men Wage a War Against Them? Cut Them Off, Ladies!” after Good Ole’ Woody linked my post from yesterday to his. In it, he too mentions the “deny sex” option. That made me laugh.

However, as I was reading, I suddenly became very aware of the dangerous power of language and our choice of words. I felt that power surge through me yesterday, as I tried to craft a piece of writing I could be proud of that truly spoke from my heart.  I am, indeed, proud of that post.It seems I always write my best posts on Fridays, when fewer people read. But that’s not what I want to talk about.

In the above post, Good Ole’ Woody wrote:

“Men, women are smarter than you. Let them control their bodies. Let them be involved federal conversations about laws which…

Have You Asked for a Miracle?

Say “Yes!” to Your Miracle!Written by Sheila Schuller Coleman

“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.” -James 4:8

If God stood before you today with your miracle– the miracle that you are desperate for – and offered it to you on a silver platter for you free, would you accept it? Would you say “yes” to your miracle?You probably think, “That’s silly. Of course, I would! Doesn’t everyone say yes to a miracle?”

I love the story of the man who was home alone when it began to rain. Before long, his house was flooded and the rising waters had covered his feet. He went outside and saw a man on a raft drift by.

“Need a lift?” the man called.

“No, thanks. I have prayed for a miracle. I’ll wait for my miracle.” So, the raft sailed out of sight.

Before long, the waters were up to his knees, and another man came into sight rowing a canoe. He asked, “Need a lift?”

“No, thanks. I have prayed for a miracle. I’ll wait for my miracle.”

The canoe rowed out of sight and soon the waters were up to his chest. A motorboat powered up to his house. “Jump in before it’s too late!”

“No, thanks. I’m waiting for my miracle.”

When the waters were up to his chin, a helicopter flew over, hovered, and a rope ladder was dropped to within inches of his face. “Grab on before you drown!”

“No, thanks. I’m waiting for my miracle.”

Suddenly the man was standing before St. Peter at the pearly gates. Astonished, the man said, “Hey, what’s this all about? I prayed and believed in a miracle!”

St. Peter replied, “We sent you three boats and a helicopter!”

Sometimes we don’t recognize the miracles God sends to us. If we’re not careful, we can miss every one. So, Lord, show us – through Your Word and through Your children – the miracle. Give us the courage to say “yes,” to grab on to Your miracles, and to hold on for dear life!

      *                *                  * 


Lord, I do not want to miss Your miracle for me. You do not want me to miss my miracle. So, open my eyes and reveal Your miracle. Make it obvious and then give me the courage to grab on and hang on for dear life! Amen.
