Does the world seem wonky?
If not, why not?
When will it end? Or should we
Stand together on our heads.
A man, a woman, or boy, a girl.
At best, we will laugh together.
At worst, a headache, ouch!
Upside down or bottoms up?
The bottom not so good
We laugh, trying not to cry!
What will tomorrow bring?
A day when we were not
Uptight: young girls' dreams
Of a picket fence, a knight
In shining armor.
When little boys were
Made of puppy-dog tails;
Little girls were sugar and spice
The world was oh so nice.
Never to appear again; yes, we will see April again but never April in 2022. The BEGINNING of a new month today, May 1st!
Time goes by so fast when we are having fun. The beginning is always exciting; I expect a new Great grandchild soon, sometime during this new month of May. Life first, we begin; begin the climb! Upward sometimes; we fall as Christ fell three times as He rose to His destination. We also have a destination, but first, we must BEGIN TO climb those worn steps covered with roses with thorns, sad times, and tearful times.
The news again, skip it! Yes, yes a war! Don’t want to hear it!
What can I do anyway, I know, I will sit down and pray, yet I do not want to get tripped up on distractions again. Just sit, relax and ask for the grace to pray well, don’t think about anything else, I hate distractions when talking to God, this time I will not trip up, I promise!
Word Press Prompt, this month it is the world BRIDGE; Yes WORLD!
Bridge, so many kinds of them, see here to get my point! Click to see how many
The purpose is to connect! So why are the governments doing everything possible to disconnect us?
The media is, in my opinion, the dominant spark at "full speed ahead" aimed at the sheeple. This quote by Winston Churchill makes the point. "A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on."
Life is a journey, and we all want to live in peace with happiness for our loved ones; we travel along, we arrive at a bridge; before we cross, be careful to know what is on the other end of the bridge. (The connection) These days do your research, don't blindly cross that bridge! And above all, pray! "My longing for truth was a single prayer." ~Edith SteinAs we begin to cross the bridge, it may seem gloomy, dark, and full of wonder; what will we find as we connect to the other side of life?
"We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light." ~Plato
Prayer is light, don't do it alone, don't just follow along AND "Do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Let the day's own trouble be sufficient for the day." Jesus Christ
The prompts are so delicious I wish I had the time to address them one by one. However, sometimes I can't think of something worthy, just silly stuff, and yes, I do silly stuff occasionally and enjoy reading it as well.
Today I don't have my "silly" hat on, so I researched the word "Wall." Interesting word (wall) a word that takes you through various paths. During my exploring around I found this interesting quote that reminds me of today's politics, and yet at the same time, it was religious, at least to me!
RDP Tuesday asks today what we save? I like to save exciting quotes; this one below is a saver for me by Haruki Murakami, a Japanese author. He was born in 1949; there is much to read about him on the Internet; and below is one of his quotes I chose to SAVE AND post for the "Weekly Prompts Weekend challenge."************
“If there is a hard, high wall and an egg that breaks against it, no matter how right the wall or how wrong the egg, I will stand on the side of the egg. Why? Because each of us is an egg, a unique soul enclosed in a fragile egg. Each of us is confronting a high wall. The high wall is the system which forces us to do the things we would not ordinarily see fit to do as individuals . . . We are all human beings, individuals, fragile eggs. We have no hope against the wall: it’s too high, too dark, too cold. To fight the wall, we must join our souls together for warmth, strength. We must not let the system control us — create who we are. It is we who created the system. (Jerusalem Prize acceptance speech, JERUSALEM POST, Feb. 15, 2009)” ― Haruki Murakami
"William Golding (of Lord of the Flies fame) wrote an essay titled “Thinking as a Hobby” in which he outlined what he saw as the three stages of human thought. The first stage, he pointed out, wasn’t really thinking at all, but rather emoting about whatever information (or disinformation) parades through a brain’s synapses. This level of “thought” takes no actual knowledge, uses logic sparingly, if at all, and produces nothing but anger, bitterness, and only an occasional tickle of amusement. The second stage of thinking is actual, rational thinking, but only goes so far as to list the problems, to recognize the difficulties, to make the diagnosis. It is overwhelmingly negative -- the sky is falling, the sky is falling!
This is where most news commentary stops. Rarely do they dig deep into possible solutions and the defense of those proposed solutions. This level of thought requires a positive outlook, a strong sense of optimism and the courage to follow through. It requires creativity, knowledge of history, science, logic, economics, and rhetoric. It requires self-discipline. On the other hand, the negative woe-is-me level is easy; it’s a testimony to the sinful, complaining nature of man.
Man is naturally a whiner and so is the Devil."

One good reason to participate in this challenge known as Share-your-world is to allow you to examine your conscience, a big something for me!

For New Year’s Eve, I will be sleeping at my age but will awake slightly when I hear the much younger generation celebrating with what they call making as much noise as possible. Jan 1, 2022, I will attend Holy Mass, a Holy Day described on the Traditional Catholic calendar.
Next year, let us all pray God will give us all the following year. His patience is incredible; perhaps He will only purify the world as He did in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah.
The greatest lesson I learned is that I don’t need to wear that mask everywhere as in 2020. Grateful too, that most people if not all in my area also figured that out!
Decisions, decisions if you truly can’t decide, why not stop and pray to the only One True God. Try it, you might be surprised.
Who is the One True God? Who showed us how to carry our cross, who lived a life of humility. Who but God could rise from the dead, and no one, not even the Jews in His day denied it. Humility; fighting for Truth.
Presenting the #Writephoto prompt is truly an inspiration for a short story about our family! It doesn’t end there however, have you all met GirlieOnTheEdgewith the most exciting prompts such as todays BLANKET is the word for today! I hope you enjoy short stories GirlieOnTheEdge prefers only 6 sentences.
Busy as usual, “Our Family’s” life begins and always ends in some eventual surprise, between who, what, and where, plus today is a shopping day! The Family that shops together stays together, so they claim. “Peggy Sue, don’t forget the snack list for school lunches!” “Hurry,” the prices are going up as we speak, and oh, mom, does he have to drag his security blanket again all through the store, like last week. “Come on, get in the car.” “Where is he … let’s go, Brandon.”
Today we live in an age of offended, everyone seems to be. Well offended or not this is my belief and I’ll post what I believe not what others want me to say.
Eternal means no beginning, only God. The Trinity had no beginning but always was; All other false artificial gods had a start if only in the mind of a demon or human person,( one of God’s creatures.) God created us with an immortal soul and, therefore, WE are eternal in a sense; since we will have no end. We will live with God or without Him. Depending on our soul when we take our last breath, it is fixed at that time, no more free will after death. Yet, we live, but where?
A movie out these days warned against. Perhaps because today things are very twisted and eternal might mean demonic.
Now for how do I see myself. At my age these days, it is interesting, my life is behind me, where most reading here, your life is ahead of you and so it should be.
I don’t worry about how I see myself anymore since I am reasonably happy in my day, with little regrets. I advise, don’t take it with you! If you have regret, you should work on correcting it now!
Today at least, for myself, no regrets through lots of begging the man upstairs, tears of sorrow, and resignation to His will. It works; try it!
Right now, I am begging for humility since I know for a fact that He, hates pride.
Having a blog on WordPress can be at times humiliating. Especially when one sets their mind to post-truth instead of fiction. Post what you believe.
An Israeli case study conducted by researchers at top Ivy League universities appeared to confirm that natural immunity was 27 times more effective than vaccines at preventing symptomatic transmission of the deadly coronavirus.
“This study demonstrated that natural immunity confers longer lasting and stronger protection against infection, symptomatic disease and hospitalization caused by the Delta variant,” they wrote, according to medRxiv.
The study—yet to be peer-reviewed and published—was supported by the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative—a health nonprofit backed by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife.
The researchers seemed determined to assert the need for additional COVID-19 boosters, arguing that they have a diminishing return.
But according to Harvard epidemiologist Martin Kulldorff, the research debunked the arguments for vaccine mandates.
“Prior COVID disease (many working class) provides better immunity than vaccines (many…
A short story exposing those who favor — unveiling the truth of it all. Take the word EXPOSE UNCOVER WHAT IS COVERED! The story begins politics as usual in our daily life:
Much to the chagrin, he heard the Principal whispered, “but could he talk?”
Yet the shy student was please with his high academic score, knowing he was on his way to give the valedictory address, but could he talk?
Surprise and wonder seen on the faces of faculty; could he talk? They questioned each other. The time has come again when the teaching staff could not cherry-pick their favored student; our student rose from merits he earned, not from a “pet” family who relished the team with benefices by word or deed.
Finally, the evening came; teachers are pacing nervously as the audience awaits the shy student to appear from behind the curtain.
He steps up with confidence, never before noticed by his teachers. Soon they applaud! “Bravo, bravo!” “More!” “Best graduation speech ever!” they echoed! The teachers are aghast!

We live in an upside-down world today, or am I standing on my head?
Nothing seems normal when standing on your head; try it!
Upside down; is said to be ...
up = down while down = up, you see!
Everything that was once considered good is now wrong.
It is popular for adults to wonder if they are men or women and, so COOL, to change their sons or daughters to whatever they are NOT! Heaven forbid you to use pronouns as she or he an offense that will soon end you in jail.
Everyone is labeled racist to the point the word itself has lost all meaning.
Now for the mask, that latest IS
Last year, we were told to wear a mask to protect others. Yet, today, when the vaccinated now no longer a danger to others continue to wear them! Hmmm ... pointing their fingers (think of others they claimed). Proving Others = SELF!
Upside down; is said to be
up = down while down = up, you see!
Round is square declared everywhere
Sad makes one laugh; the whole is only half
Hot is cold, as ice on fire
Success defined; one great liar!
This is what happens when the powers that be are allowed to remove God; He gives us what they want. Pray as you have never in your life prayed before.
Fraudulent Joe Biden delivered remarks from the White House on Tuesday and encouraged Americans to continue to cower in fear over a virus with a 99.98% survival rate.
“The virus is spreading because we have too many people who see the end in sight, think we’re at the finish line,” Biden said. “Let me be deadly earnest with you: we aren’t at the finish line…We’re still in a life and death race against this virus.”
Joe Biden previously told Americans that if we “do our part” by wearing masks and staying socially distanced we will be able to celebrate the 4th of July with a cookout or a barbecue in our backyards with family and friends.
Now Biden is saying only vaccinated Americans can celebrate the 4th of July.
“If we take the precautions I’ve been talking about, you’ll be able to have a 4th of July…
