My World....


In my happy little world, things are good.  Selah is on top of everything and is becoming the most consistently responsive than ever!  She looks great and is happy.  We can tell if she is happy, because she makes faces when she is not:)   The schedule/nurse change has worked out really good for her. 

Right now the other four are outside in this beautiful late summer day ( can't call 80 degrees Fall-even in Florida)  Sam and Sarah are on the swing set, Steve is watching them, listening to music and Shad is playing.  My husband is at the prison, doing a job he loves.  I'm getting ready to cook supper and look forward to another night together with my family, watching something on TV.......but that is just in MY little world.

But in America, we have another Ebola patient, one who was on a airplane less than 24 hours before becoming sick....   We have a CDC who refuses to close our borders, when we can not even keep the few patients we've had from infecting others. 

For the record, all three of our adoptive kids HAD to be tested for TB BEFORE being allowed a visa to come to the USA!  I've heard of families, that their newly adopted kids tested positive and the families were stuck in the countries they adopted from while the child was getting treatment.    When you adopted internationally after you finished with that countries paperwork THEN you go to the American Embassy and the child has a physical including a TB test, if there is a reaction, then the child has further testing, if truly positive, the child is NOT allowed into the USA.  

When we adopted Shad the Bird Flu was rampant in Asia.  Many people wore masks.  I was told before I left that if I got sick I would not be allowed on an airplane to come home.....  We were screened at the airports.

Why am I telling you all of this?  I feel our borders need to be closed from admitting people in the affected areas.  Give humanitarian aid but close our borders.  Already England and France have stopped commercial flights to the affected countries.  WHY don't we follow?  It is not about being cruel or racist....it's about stopping the spread of this disease as best we can.  Quarantine has always been used to try and halt the advance of disease. 

Now we are having "mysterious" diseases that hit children.  A boy died last week just a country over from us and there still has not been a clear diagnosis.

Also have you heard about what is happening in Houston Texas?    http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2014/10/15/pastors-to-mayor-dont-mess-with-texas-pulpits/
Five pastors who have spoken publically about a new law that would allow men and women to use the same restrooms at the same time .....it's really about much more than that but it's been called the Bathroom Bill" have now had their sermon notes, emails etc subpoenaed.  Clearly a separation of church and state....where the state is trying to control what the pastors say....

Then I think of the border problem we had BEFORE Ebola....and all the many issues and scandals rocking our government within this country. 

Then there are all the dangers from without....
ISIS.....
Russia......
North Korea.......

Outside of my little world, there is so much going on~some of these things could soon affect my world.

  1. The Book of Revelation is upon us before the Rapture...
    Enough said....I had a different comment, but it asked for
    what format to use and I lost everything when it came back
    on to this.....
    The mayor of Houston is a lesbian and she is out to close down
    BIBLE teaching churches...How's that for shaking a fist at the
    GOD OF THE UNIVERSE!!!!!!!!! And the times they are a changing....
    Christians persecuted and muslims glorified along with everything
    that is not of God....
