Hopefully, every Sunday, you can find something here that will build you up a little . . . give you a smile . . . and add some joy or peace, very much needed in all our lives.

“This day is holy to the Lord your God; do not mourn nor weep.” . . . “Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet, and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord. Do not sorrow, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”


Psalm 1

Psalm 1 begins by describing the man who is blessed. He doesn’t keep company with a bad crowd. Furthermore, the Word of God governs his thought life. Both day and night he thinks about what God has disclosed in His Word. He thoroughly enjoys spending time in reading and pondering God’s Word. His devotion to Scripture produces fruit in his life. In a spiritual sense, he is like a tree whose roots are nourished by a stream. He enjoys vitality and success. His life of blessing and productivity stands in stark contrast to the lives of the wicked. What their lives produce is as worthless as the chaff that the wind blows away. When God separates His people from the wicked, the wicked will fall in the judgment. The Lord is fully aware of the lifestyle of His righteous people as well as the lifestyle of the wicked, so His judgment will be just. The Lord will sentence the wicked to eternal perdition.
https://www.bibleref.com/Psalms/1/Psalm-1-5.html

1 Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he meditates day and night.

He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.

The ungodly are not so,
But are like the chaff which the wind drives away.
Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment,
Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

For the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
But the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Psalm 1

I have two ways to live – trusting in the words, ways, and thoughts of man, or trusting in the words, ways, and thoughts of God.

How often does “divine truth” inform my life? Not enough. Books and blogs I read, movies and TV shows I watch, conversations and interactions I have with others, all seek to inform my life. What they tell me may or may not line up with God’s Word. But if I don’t know well what Scripture actually contains, I won’t know the difference.

God couldn’t be clearer about the benefits of knowing, loving, and following His Word, and the corresponding pain, havoc, and judgment that accompanies those who don’t. But many times we’re content with spending 5-10 minutes a day in the Bible, happy that they’re at least doing something. While SOME time is certainly better than NONE, it’s doubtful that it’s going to make much of a difference in our thinking. And if our thinking doesn’t change, neither will our lives. And if our lives don’t change, how do people distinguish us from the wicked?

Psalm 1:2 says the righteous person does two things in relation to his Word: He delights in it and meditates on it. Psalm 119:97 says something similar:

“Oh how I love your law! It is my meditation all the day.”

Do I love God’s Word? Do I look forward to reading it more than I might a good novel by my favorite author? Do I see time in the Bible as an opportunity to get to know my Savior and Creator better? Or do I see it as “moldy truth” that I eat only reluctantly? The attitude of delight marks the difference between the Christian who reads the Bible because they’re “supposed to” and the one who reads because they can’t be kept away.

But how do we nurture that kind of attitude and desire? It’s simple. Meditate on God’s Word. Feed on it, think long and hard about it, memorize it, apply it to different situations, study it, compare and contrast different passages, trace the use of one word through the Bible. Of course all of these being with the simple act of reading it. Lots of it.

May God help us this year to increase our intake of and delight in God’s Word so that we might bear much fruit for the glory of our Savior.

      The multinational processors who have monopolized meat processing (slaughter and butcher) are rejecting the farmers’ animals.

      PRIME Act stands for Processing Revival and Intrastate Meat Exemption.

      It would allow small local facilities to process and sell meat “by the cut.”

          1. We were SCREAMING about this more than a decade ago.

            NOW people are finally waking up to what the Food [Un]Safety Modernization Act was really about.

            When I first came to NC I could take rabbits or chickens to a small processor and have them slaughtered, processed and frozen for my freezer. NOW there is no one that I know of that still does small animals in my area. I even have to drive 1 1/2 hours one way to have my goats and sheep processed and they will not do smaller animals. It costs me $60 plus an over weight charge for animals over 50 pounds so it is darn expensive considering you only get 25 to 30 lbs of meat back out of a 50# animal. That does not include the cost of transport or the cost of raising the animals.

                There is this paper documenting the problems with covid vaccines.

                Evaluation of Antibody-Dependent Enhancement of SARS-CoV Infection in Rhesus Macaques Immunized with an Inactivated SARS-CoV Vaccine

                “…It has been demonstrated that higher concentrations of anti-sera against SARS-CoV neutralized the SARS-CoV infection, while highly diluted anti-sera significantly increased the SARS-CoV infection and triggered ADE effects (Wang et al. 2014). Moreover, the low levels of neutralizing antibodies are more consistent in the context of vaccination of the general population….”

                So the vaccine was worse than useless.

                There was also the Army study showing vaccinated soldiers had more problems with the Covid virus.

    “During a task force meeting Wednesday, a heated discussion broke out between Deborah Birx, the physician who oversees the administration’s coronavirus response, and Robert Redfield, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Birx and others were frustrated with the CDC’s antiquated system for tracking virus data, which they worried was inflating some statistics — such as mortality rate and case count — by as much as 25 percent, according to four people present for the discussion or later briefed on it. Two senior administration officials said the discussion was not heated,” the newspaper reported.

  7. I’m repeating this here because I’d really like to get an answer here. It appears to be a fact that HCQ works well when administered early in the infection cycle, with good info that it will work well as a preventative.

    So, does anybody have HCQ production, and U.S. purchasing and inventory info that gives any insight on how far we are away from having the supplies for immediate treatment of WuFlu positive individuals as well as forecasts as to when at least the highly vulnerable portion of U.S. population might have routine access to HCQ as a preventative?

    Are we buying and stockpiling or sleeping at the switch?

      1. I knew about the 29 or 30M that went into the national stockpile, and I’ve heard of no further orders or receipts of HCQ. And, I’ve no idea on how much big drug supply outfits are ordering and getting, and then down to the wholesalers, then retailers, and also, perhaps, supplies for individual medical facilities.

        There were about 20,000 new WuFlu cases in the U.S. today. If only half of them were to go on HCQ protocol now, that would be at least 100,000 pills per day.

        There are about 42 million people 65 years old and over in the U.S. If we assume that is the entirety of the high risk group (surely it’s larger), and assume that only half of them want a preventive dose of HCL, if it’s the same dose as keeping malaria at bay, that’s 21 million pills a day.

        That’s a rough and incomplete look at why I’m interested in the U.S. stockpiling, and especially fully approving, HCQ for WuFlu.

        1. ‘m not certain of this, but I’ve read that once you’ve taken a “course” of HCQ, then you can drop dosage levels down to prevention levels, which are less. Wish I could give you more solid numbers on that.

        2. We got initial donations from Mylan, Bayer, Teva (Israel) and India. Teva was supposed to ramp up production in order to send us more. I’m confident Navarro is on top of the supply chain issues.

    1. My understanding is we’ll have no shortage of HCQ in the US. The problem I see is CDC not allowing its widespread use. Too many governors stopping the use of HCQ. Our POS guv Sisolak is one of them. Sisolak is a herd type governor…follows grewwsome in CA, the wench in Oregon and Inslee in WA.

      India has promised large amount of HCQ. Article in part pasted below reflects we will get ingredients for manufacture in USA.

      FYI, LAKH is an Indian unit of measure roughly 100K.

      1. Please, allow me….from the link provided…

        Birx said ‘there is nothing from the CDC that I can trust’ in a White House coronavirus task force meeting

        quote:

        Deborah Birx, the White House’s coronavirus task force response coordinator, blasted the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in a White House coronavirus task force meeting during a discussion on COVID-19 data, according to The Washington Post.

        “There is nothing from the CDC that I can trust,” she told CDC Director Robert Redfield, two people familiar with the meeting told the newspaper.

        The Post reported that Birx and others feared that the CDC’s statistics on mortality rate and case counts were inflated by up to 25%.

        Several of The Post’s sources described the meeting with Birx and Redfield as “heated,” though two other sources disagreed.

        According to The Post, Redford defended the CDC in the meeting, but many agreed the agency needed a digital upgrade.

        Another flashpoint in the meeting came during a discussion on the drug remdesivir, which has shown promising early results in clinical trials and the Trump administration is distributing to hard-hit states.

        According to The Post, one official in the meeting announced that the government had already shipped the drug to seven states. The news reportedly caught Birx and others by surprise, since they had not yet decided which states should be prioritized.

        “Why would you do that?” Birx asked the official, according to The Post.

                When I was first “educated” by the chemo nurse on the process, I turned the binder over to DH and the nurse also gave a duplicate one to daughter dearest. Even though I know I have a strong will and am not easily psyched into things, I did not want to know any more about side effects than I had acquired through osmosis.
                I did not want to be susceptible to the power of suggestion. I told family that if I was experiencing anything out of the ordinary I would speak up and they would confirm the whys or nays of my suspicions. It seemed to work to keep me from falling into a mass of chemo flubber. Now, with just one more round left in the arsenal to conquer the cancer, I’m ready to read and learn more. So many Thank Yous from me to all you awesome people here, at Marica’s and IOTW, for prayers and encouragements. God Bless.

  9. 100,000 foot observation of DC and what’s coming

    It’s no surprise to anyone, of course, to hear that there has been a battle raging in Washington DC ever since Donald Trump was inaugurated as president. Point is….

    While that battle’s outcome has remained in doubt, there has undiubtedly been many fence-sitters in DC gov’t watching to see who would win the battle between POTUS and the DS/democraps.

    As I have previously pointed out, the exoneration of Mike Flynn is the first explosion in a chain which is necessarily going to set off TSAR BOMBA.

    The upcoming Durham report, proving that the predicate for the Mueller SC was complete hogwash, is the second explosion.

    Taken together, the exoneration of Flynn (and why) combined with Durham’s report showing the predicate for the Mueller SC was fraudulent is going to prove BOTH that the creation of the Mueller SC was corrupt AND that the Mueller SC itself was corrupt. Hey presto…

    BOOM!!

    Tsar bomba.

    Given this, all the aforementioned fence-sitters in DC are going to come down off the fence and align themselves with POTUS and his administration….to curry favor, avoid career repercussions, or any combination thereof.

    Tsar Bomba is going to have a very DRAMATIC effect upon DC.

    Let’s use another analogy.

    As I have previously mentioned quite often, the lead up to the present has been much like the allies preparation for the Normandie invasion in World War II. These past several years have been spent preparing for this moment, impaneling judges, getting rid of bad actors inside government, setting executive orders in place,, along with the right personnel such as Richard Grenell as acting DNI and Mark Meadows as WH Chief of Staff.

    Well, the invasion has begun. And the exoneration of Gen. Flynn can be seen as the successful establishment of the Normandy beach head. In the weeks to come the fighting will be analogous to the hedgerow fighting that took place in the weeks following D-day. That said, the Durham report is going to be the “break out”…that point at which the terrain opens up, the murderous hedgerows left behind, and the allies start advancing at a WICKED pace now that they have broken into open terrain and have the enemy on the run.

    So….

    Don’t be surprised when formerly suspicious or even knowingly hostile folks should demonstrate a sudden change of heart. Some of it will be genuine, much of it feigned. In fact, don’t be surprised if even outlets like CNN all of a sudden start acting and reporting like real journalists again…

    …although they should rightfully be seen as the vichy French they are and have their heads shaved, some of them shot for what they’ve done.

    What a glorious time to be alive and to witness the fruits of such careful planning and preparation!! 😎

        Except for one thing. They are part and parcel of the old power structure.

        The only way I see this happening is if their management and owners either get their sorry asses kicked out–and then anyone left behind has to decide whether they want to actually do journalism now that they are free to, or the management and owners have it laid out in no uncertain terms. I’d rather see the former; since otherwise they’ll turn on Trump at the first excuse.

  13. What a great day here in Southern Middle TN! PERFECT weather!

    For Mother’s Day, Son and Husband put in a full day’s work outside: mowing, weed whacking, bushwhacking (some really overgrown areas) and chopping down some trees. Ash borer is hard at work on our property so lots of dead/dying trees. 😦 Three came down today! All 3 are trees I see from my bedroom window, in my view as I sit and type. Big dead trees blocking the view of the valley and the mountains. Gone! So happy!

    3 more were supposed to go and then a bonfire tonight with marshmallows (we are burning stumps from trees cut down last year). However, on the 3rd tree the chain saw got stuck in the trunk as the tree shifted its weight just enough but was no where near ready to fall. Husband had to take it down the rest of the way with an ax.

    Appreciate our chainsaw even more after taking that tree down with an ax! Hats off to our pioneer forefathers.

    So they were too tired for a bonfire and it was too late. I had made them some homemade cherry ice cream as a surprise while they were out working so we had that instead. Bonfire another night.

    So excited to see the sunrise tomorrow with the dead trees down and out of my view!

    We have had a lovely spring and we have spent so much time out of doors. Almost ready for a rainy day so I can have an excuse to stay on the couch with my lap top and go through the declass stuff! ha

    Plus, put together a botany curriculum for son to begin in a few weeks (I was planning to do geology and paleontology, my favorites, but he requested botany and best to go with his favorites and have a willing, eager student) and now local politics is heating back up with the shut down ending…busy times! (I have kept somewhat busy with local politics – moving meetings to online events and working with a coalition to influence Gov Lee re shut down, etc. but much busier now that shut down is ending)

    Hope you all had some time outside and some time with family, even if it was only virtual/facetime or over the phone.

We had No idea what we were about to go through….what Flynn and the Trumps were about to go through. SMH Maybe best I didn’t know. I posted soon after the election that it was like landing on D-Day. That was won but Much more fighting to do to give President Trump support and political leverage, to win in ’18 and ’20….
      so glad I didn’t know!

      Anyway, I loved the count downs. Not sure I am ready for one for 2020 yet…but we do need to focus! less than 6 months and heating up fast! Got to get the House back. If we had the House post ’18 we would have not have had the impeachment. Gotta start kickin’ it up a notch and get ‘er done!

        A) I wasn’t counting (mind you).

        B) But if I were, I’d want to count down to a particular instant in time, and there ISN’T one on Election day. Time till the last poll closes? That’s Alaska/Hawaii at 0-dark-thirty to the rest of us. Time until it’s called? Who knows when it will be called. If it’s a blowout, it’ll be over before California even closes (and there will be much pissing and moaning about that, but CA can go copulate with itself).

        C) So, there’s really no way to do a countdown, if I were so inclined, which (mind you) I’m not.
