Barring a catastrophe, it looks like Donald Trump will most probably be the Republican nominee for President of the United States.
Can he make America great again or at least get the country functional enough to provide a future for its children?
The far Left and Right
Donald Trump won’t make the far Left happy nor will he make the far Right happy, but he does seem to have enough in him for both camps and people in the middle to be contented.
Getting things done
Donald Trump has the confidence, know how, networks, influence, and money to get things done. Entrenched Republicans and Democrats will not be happy, but they’ll work with him. Oh yeah, they’ll work with him.
Can Trump actually do it?
America’s career politicians have done nothing but destroy a great country. Perhaps it’s time to give someone like Trump a chance to succeed where others have failed.

Facing the end of their lives, some people wonder if they have made a difference, wonder if they even matter.
When I learned of the heinous crime committed in Charleston, I tried to pray, but the usual words just seemed to ring hollow. The proper words just weren’t there. People were hurting, grieving, angry about what had just happened. What should I say? What should I ask for? I found myself praying that God would somehow glorify His name through a seemingly senseless tragedy, crime.
Across our country, instead of seeing more hate and violence, something incredible seems to be happening. Love, forgiveness, a coming together in heartbreak and healing, trying to make sense of everything.
People are defying the cry of “Fool!” as they fulfill Jesus’ commands in Matthew chapter 5. Joy is filling the spirits of the broken-hearted.
In Isaiah 54:17, the LORD says “No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, And their righteousness is from Me.”
Susie Jackson; Sharonda Coleman-Singleton; DePayne Doctor, Ethel Lance, Daniel Simmons Sr., Clementa Pinckney, Cynthia Hurd, and Tywanza Sanders can stand in glory today and boldly say praise God, our lives mattered.
What exactly do the people want? How about no contracts? Affordable plans that don’t break the bank? Affordable plans? Yes! Republic Wireless has four plans starting at $5 a month. That isn’t a typo; they really have a $5 plan which is wifi only with unlimited talk/text/data. I’m trying the $10 plan which gives you unlimited talk/text over cell, and unlimited data over wifi.
The plan I’m on doesn’t give me data over cell, but with so many wifi hotspots, I’m really not missing it. Switching to Republic Wireless is saving me lots of money and the network itself has been great for me.
You want an affordable plan? Republic Wireless has a plan for you.
I compromised nothing by switching; I gained. And I’m happy.
Disclosure: I received no compensation for writing this post. It reflects my personal experience with the company.

Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, has issued a call to European Jews to come home amid escalating terror attacks. The regathering of Jews into the Holy Land is a Biblical sign of the times.
Jordan’s king has roared to life, vowing to crush ISIS.
Jordan’s King Abdullah II is assuming the mantle of Middle East leadership, a role apparently vacated by the United States. Abdullah’s father, Hussein bin Talal, was an honorable man. Abdullah will hopefully follow in his footsteps.
The nations are plunging into turmoil; the seas and waves are roaring; and the Middle East is quickly becoming a “cup of trembling” to many nations.

During summer 2014, we took a guided waterfalls tour led by Adam DeWitte, Director of Education, Pisgah Field School. Adam led us to several beautiful falls near Pisgah Forest, North Carolina, with one of them being fantastically serene.
The stream of that particular falls flows across a flat rock which you can easily walk out on. Months later, I can still imagine someone sitting there in well placed chair amid stream, perhaps reading Robert Frost, absorbing the sounds and pleasant energy of that special place.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference. ~ The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost ~
If you have actually done that, I envy you…
A guided tour is definitely the way to go. Your guide drives you to each location and shares information about each falls that really enriches the experience. You can book your tour with Adam by visiting the Pisgah Field School website.
