I am just an old soul who has been around the block a time or two.
I have either been there and done that or I know somebody who has.
Wisdom comes from God We also gain wisdom from our experiences
here on Earth You don't need psychic hot lines. Just ask the Crystal Lady.
Sometimes just getting an independent
opinion can help you
clarify what you want or need to do about the problem
Just the fact of organizing your thoughts can do wonders

I would like to
tell you a secret.
by Joan Estelle High
|As a non-drinker, I don't like drunks. I don't like drunks that
drink and drive.
If you hurt somebody because of you stupidity, jail time is what you deserve.
I guess calling somebody a drunk is not politically correct now.
I am suppose to call them alcoholics right!
Alcoholism is one one of the few self inflicted disease you can get.
But if you work at it, you will probably ruin your health and the rest of your life.
Won't do your family much good either. Family abuse is a common result of alcohol use.
Over the years, I have formed the opinion that alcoholics are on the whole a very selfish lot.
Alcohol is the fire escape but most alcoholics have other deep seated problems
that need therapy. You can never get cured of being an alcoholic.
But you can get dried out and regain control over your life.
Winners and Losers
By Joan Estelle High
Did you ever
stop to wonder who or what is running the universe?
Or if anybody is running the universe we know, here in the present age.
Maybe the effects we see are results of actions long past
Like the "Big Bang theory"
God may have gotten every thing started and
then left for a far distant universe.
Maybe He started up a new project in another time and place.
We could be a flawed experiment that He has gotten weary of.
Many people have claimed to have conversations with Him,
but in this world wide era of communications nobody has seemed to capture Him
with their cell phone or put His voice on tape.
Perhaps He may choose to only be an observer and has a non-interference policy
much like a Captain on a Star Trek adventure.
Just wants to see what His creation can do with what they were given.
Give us the ball and tells us to run for a touch down.
Hate to mention this to God but we need a little more couching.
Maybe we need a new couch like the Dallas Cowboys did.
I have always thought of God as a being with a very organized and intelligent mind.
Looking at his creations , He seems to like items in His world neat and orderly.
Planets and other heavenly bodies seem to have a planned orbit.
They don't go running off in all directions but stay in the path prescribed for them.
According to our folk lore even heaven is divided up into layers.
Angels are set up like an army with different ranks and jobs.
Gravity follows laws and the sun comes in the same place in the sky every day.
The elements can be counted on to give the same results under same conditions.
It is said that the definition of insanity is doing something over and over and expecting different results.
So judging from the evidence we can see and comprehend, God is a rational and sane god.
Now there is supposed to be a little spark of God with in all of us
The best of us show it sometimes and the worse of us hide it most of the time.
It is said we were made in His image.
I guess they we talking about some kind of spiritual image.
People come in so many size, shapes and colors we can’t all look like God.
Other wise He would be one funny looking dude, wouldn’t He ?
Sometimes I think God is an author writing His little plays
and then He assigned some of us to play different roles.
Some of us get to live in mansions and have loving families
That often gives us the advantage of a good education,
We can get a healthy mind and body
and a life that treats us with a generous hand.
For other they get a life that beats them up pretty badly.
Some never know what it feels to have a clean body or have a full belly,
Or the shelter of a warm home or folks that care for them.
I guess the ones that are “Billie Bad Asses” have some kind of amnesia
and don’t remember that they started out as a child of God.
Or they are just caught up in playing their roles that they get lost in their parts
Perhaps they have gone over to the dark side to be with Satan.
Boy are they in for some bad news later in this story.
I wonder if we are marked as Winners and Losers before we are born to our lives here.
Maybe it is nothing personal just the luck of the draw.
Some people say our life is based on Karma
and what goes around comes back to kick us in the rear.
Something to thing about either way.
Thoughts On a Winter Day
Well, today I looked into the mirror and asked myself “where are you at?”
The face reflected back had more lines than a Texas size road map.
I thought about the words to that song that says, “I am too young to be this dam old”
I look down at my wrinkled hand and saw my wedding band which is my only gold.
Made of stronger metal than I was, it weathered many years and still looks bright.
Time only gently rubbed it smooth and gave the gold a patina of gentle golden light
But time was not that good to me, what glow I had is now long gone.
So as I enter the December of my life I am not sure just where it is that I belong.
I feel that I have drifted through my life on a huge dune of shifting sand.
The only treasure I own is that wedding band upon my wrinkled old hand.
Disappointments came my way, my heart still feels the sadness of the pain.
And if the choice is ever mine to make, I won’t be coming back here again.
I ever leave my Father’s house again to wander though time and space.
I will check my travel passport to see what is written both on the back and face.
I think, I should have noticed before I agreed to ride in that star class cruiser
That mine was stamped with big red letter that said “She is to play a loser”
There is a old saying that we are not suppose to judge our fellow man or
woman for that matter
until we have walked in their moccasins.
Agree or Disagree, let me hear from You.
GOD BLESS AMERICA
I AM PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN.

What a glorious history we have in this country
What an absolute beautiful country from "sea to shining sea"
This huge vast domain of un paralleled beauty entrusted to us
Yes we have problems, but with all our problems we are lucky to live in this land.
What a vision the men and woman who founded the United States Of America had
.What a miracle it was that they brought together such a diversity of people
And made them one land and one people united under our beautiful flag of 'Freedom"
Let us never forget the word "Freedom"
Let us vow that we will always continue to strive for " Freedom"
Political freedom, Economic freedom, Spiritual freedom
First to all our people no matter what the race or creed..
then spread the concept of freedom to every nation and people on Earth.
