Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Post Originally Written on 6/23/22

As of late, living in America has become an exhausting exercise in futility. There are times writing expressions and observations in this post have become laborious. Everything, I mean everything that has happened since the results of the 2020 General Election are either morally reprehensible or an affliction of mental decadence, by all standards of basic recognized normal traits of human behavior. America has lost its compass as good intentions are classified as evil, becoming positive is considered an abnormality and the plain truth is viewed as treacherous in the eyes of the disordered crowd of the debased. While the aforementioned thoughts and words were specifically chosen for its relevance under the circumstances, the uninformed or the wretched crowd of misplaced truants in society are unable to bloviate contents of speech, due to the lack of logic, reason, wisdom or even the truth in its manuscript and delivery. 

The machinations of evil manifests in either hidden locales or sights in plain view. The malevolence that has been unmasked by the outcome of prayer, has revealed the characters involved in their perpetual pursuit to destroy the nation by all means necessary. The Dear Lord has allowed the identities of those eager to topple a Constitutional Republic to be known by their peers. One must comprehend American history, as this country was founded by its sacrosanct respect and adherence to Judeo-Christian principles. " In God We Trust" is the acclimation that is found in every government institution, its buildings and currency. Unfortunately, it seems as though many public servants no longer are cognizant nor have the affinity to trust God Almighty in the governance of this nation.

One can debate the intense scrutiny with regards to the origination of the ballots cast in the 2020 General Election. If the Election was tampered with by fraudulent means, I am convinced the wrath of Almighty God has shown His vengeance with the collapse of American society as we are now witnessing, towards its demise at every turn. In a previous post, Noah's Ark was discussed for its biblical significance in which the Lord recognized the immorality that was pronounced on Earth and His decision to start civilization from the ground up once again. "Vengeance is mine saith the Lord", as He has the Divine Power and Authority to end the madness that has descended on America and the world. The only cure to resuscitate a dying country is to have America humbly pray for the restoration of one's soul and that of the entire nation. Scripture discloses the truth. It's time that America lives in peace once again. We all know the alarming problems that have encircled our communities. There's no need to be reminded of the horrors inflicted. The Mid Term Elections on November 8th, if free and fair, will decide the future of a society that needs salvation for a peaceful existence. Pray, as your life truly depends on the outcome.

Additional Notes Written on 6/24/22

I reread the post that is scheduled and wanted to add the following personal observations. I am not a theologian by any means, but my understanding of Scripture is enlightened when the active presence of the Holy Spirit is at hand. My thoughts are formed when I read the numerous passages in Scripture, as I consider this a true guide on how to delineate an opinion with regards to the situations mentioned and how the circumstances are prevalent in the human condition today. I believe the Dear Lord gave us the ability to choose between good or evil in this world, as we have been given the concept of freewill on how to live our lives. My understanding is that God allows our freewill to manifest in either direction and its aftermath can be joyous or devastating. Nevertheless, His purpose for our redemption is forthcoming if mankind decides to neglect its embrace of righteousness if so choosing. Therefore, through His Divine Patience, God may decide to let civilization destroy itself, until such time when the population finally acquires the wisdom and humility through the power of prayer, to repent and live without hatred or division. The 'end times' are coming, but we are not privy when or if the conclusion of civilization would occur anytime soon in the foreseeable future.

Additional Notes Written on 6/24/22 after the Verdict

I wrote the post above for publication on Monday, June 27th. On Friday, June 24th, I wept when I heard the Supreme Court overturned Roe v Wade. This decision offers a glimmer of hope for everyone to humbly believe that human life at conception is truly profound and a blessed sacrosanct gift from Almighty God. It is sad to see the leftist demonstrations outside of the Court building and plans for violence due to the decision in cities across the nation. The healing must begin to help those in need to embrace the sanctity of life, and end the  scourge of hatred for the unborn, innocent children and the human family. Solemn Prayers for this historical momentous day to become a reality since 1973, have been answered! The Revival and the acknowledgement of the human spirit in the womb, has begun!

Thanks again for your continuous support - during these challenging times in America - a nation under siege.

Be unafraid and courageous. God almighty is with you.

Dear Friends,

Today marks the 15th year the TeamBlog began its posts on this website! The Blog has changed dramatically since then. Various posts discussing politics, religion and entertainment besides focusing on economics or mortgage financing, has gained in popularity by the page views gathered on a daily and monthly basis.

I am humbly grateful for the outpouring of support over the years with regards to my thoughts and experiences that allow critical thinking and basic common sense to prevail. I would assume that discerning, law abiding and God fearing Americans will attest to my honesty and the content of my character as a prerequisite for the opinions and topics chosen - only by the assistance of the Lord's mighty presence in my life. I can only say from the deep corners of my heart, that I am blessed to have the cognitive capacity and ability to write the spoken word without obstacles, from wicked forces of intervention in American society today.

I do not know how long the Dear Lord has given me to spread the circumstances that are either victorious or problematic for the preservation of America. The posts that I've written are true. A great responsibility has been placed on my shoulders to advise the American people with regards to our destinies. "Give me liberty or give me death!" was the cry from Patrick Henry in March of 1775 that assisted the colonists in their moral indignation of the British oppression that led to the Revolution. America today requires us to pray to Our Dear Father in Heaven, to end the dismantling of a Republic founded on Christian principles. This Blog fully understands and recognizes the role of Providence. We must continuously pray for America, for genuine opportunities to live life happily ever after.

Thanks again for your continuous support - during these challenging times in America - a nation under siege.

Be unafraid and courageous. God almighty is with you.

Dear Friends,

The photo of the smiling gentleman above cheerfully happens, when all the puzzle pieces in life fits and everything imaginable goes to plan. In today's America, a positive disposition on life becomes a reality, once various challenges encountered on any given day delivers the relief from chronic anxiety. Fortunately, there are several activities that offer a respite from the bedlam outside our homes.

Ever since the anxiety and despondency many Americans have suffered due to the pandemic, and the oppression that has engulfed the country, the delight of gardening has been an escape from the circumstances that rarely leaves one's presence. I'm lucky to have a backyard that is conducive in planting a vegetable garden along with azaleas, petunias, zinnias and various wild flowers. One's age should never be a prerequisite to enjoy planting living things in rich soil and viewing the miracles of its bloom. As a child I was always curious about how plants and flowers grew. I remember using my bare hands in planting seeds that made me grow a green thumb!

Another mental escape from the madness many of us have witnessed during this time in American history, is reading the Holy Bible. Frankly, I spend more time reading Scripture nowadays, as I'm comforted by the wisdom and outcomes of lives that were changed dramatically by following the Divine path recommended for one's salvation. Scripture is truly thought provoking and inspirational.The numerous passages in the Bible allows the ability to gain insight with the various trials that others confronted over 2000 years ago. Many of the challenges explored in Scripture back then, are similar to the circumstances one faces in the modern world. Truly, the Holy Bible can be considered a blueprint on how to live a meaningful and productive life in a fallen world.

For additional relief from anxious moments, I truly enjoy Classical Music, Opera and Gregorian chants. When I desire to be in solitude, my love for music offers the relaxation I need to dismiss the mental anguish I may feel when it seems as though the entire world around me have lost their minds. On Saturdays, I listen to the Classical radio station when I'm on my various errands, as I do my best to listen to the performances that are live from the Metropolitan Opera in New York. For many years I've been a devoted fan and schedule my Saturday mornings so I do not miss a broadcast. I also enjoy singing and my voice does carry towards the Heavens at Sunday mass! 

All told, the devastation Americans have suffered and continues to this day, can be relieved slightly from hobbies or excursions that help lift one's disposition in a positive spiritual manner.

 There was a time when viewing various professional sports and supporting your favorite team helped take one's mind from problems or stress. I was an avid sports fan. Unfortunately, when you have adult players earning million dollar salaries and are disgruntled by believing in misguided political theories that challenges principles of liberty and freedom that ironically allows them to earn inflated incomes for playing a child's game, my support dwindles. There's no need to invite unfounded principles that lack coherence at game time, as the fun in rooting for your team abruptly ends.

As previously mentioned, these are just a few tender mercies that help conquer adversities in life. Destructive government and corporate policies have devalued respect for living in harmony. The Golden Rule is no longer embraced. When you devote a few minutes a day in prayer, this will always be the best method to allay all fears, as it provides the confidence to move forward by living a life without impediments.

Thanks again for your continuous support - during these challenging tines in America - a nation under siege.

Be unafraid and courageous. God almighty is with you.

Dear Friends,

Father's Day is a special occasion when we remember the love that is evident when our beloved fathers are involved in our lives. Personally, my father is deceased, but I do remember him and my beloved mother for the sacrifice they made in their courageous efforts by helping my two brothers and me escape from Communist Cuba many years ago. When one looks back at a parent's actions that will always have an effect on a youngster, and as an adult, you will discover the love that was evident during the most trying and difficult times in life. Notwithstanding, there are truly joyous moments that one remembers in which lasting memories can never be erased by the passage of time, as I recall the past today.

My family has been blessed by having loving parents. They decided the most auspicious path to overcome the incessant evil of a nation just 90 miles from the coast of Florida, is to leave everything behind and flee towards freedom. Everything I've ever written is true. My parents always told the truth. Humbly speaking, their high regards are instilled in my presence today.

Unfortunately, I'm saddened by the crime and violence along with the mental and moral decline of American society, by the absence of one or both parents. When a father is no longer involved in the life of a son or daughter, the circumstances allow the drifting of succinct human values of compassion, forgiveness and respect that are grievously prevalent in today's culture. 

All sectors of American life, whether the sphere of influence manifests with government officials, corporations, educational systems, entertainment, social media or other salient industries, the lack of a father at home at a young age provokes the disturbance of one's capacity for righteousness. To live in peace is a difficult goal when a father is gone or there is abuse within the family. It saddens me greatly when one hears of situations that have prolonged the suffering of one's mental health into adulthood. Broken families begins the process of mental anguish due to anyone associated in this environment. The intensity of abuse if not spoken nor revealed, prevents the healing required for emotional peace.

 What is happening today in America reflects the emotional baggage that has afflicted individuals in power and beyond. While the truth is difficult to embrace, a society can begin to heal. On this momentous day, let's humbly pray for our fathers, as they embrace the wholesome role of responsibility for their children and the entire family. For anyone that no longer has a parent, pray to our Holy Father in Heaven, as He will guide your path in living life to its fullest!

For the parent chosen on this occasion, have a wonderfully blessed and Happy Father's Day!

Thanks again for your continuous support - during these challenging times in America - a nation under siege.

Be unafraid and courageous. God almighty is with you.

Dear Friends,

This Summer I decided it would be best to spend time in reading just 2 books that will assist me in understanding the complexities of living under a scourge of instability and insecurity. Moreover, the crisis that continues to envelop America and the State that I reside in, has given me the forced and intentional opportunity to fulfill my calling for solitude and introspection that is required for the attainment of one's peace of mind.

 INFLATION - WHAT IT IS, WHY IT'S BAD & HOW TO FIX IT

We all live hectic lives, much more so with the INFLATION that has decimated our finances and the ability to live in sanity under these dire economic circumstances. The 1st Book that I'm eager to read revolves around the mechanics of INFLATION in American society written by Steve Forbes, Nathan Lewis and Elizabeth Ames, I'm convinced their insight on INFLATION will offer the focus one needs to overcome the deluge of rising costs on merchandise, services, commodities along with increasing rents, credit card and mortgage rates, food and of course, gas prices.

 There are also inflation terms you might have come across. STAGFLATION is considered likely when high inflation along with high unemployment with low demand for goods hits the marketplace. While SHRINKFLATION, is the down sizing or shrinking of merchandise by not raising the price of a product.

THE PROBLEM OF PAIN

The 2nd Book that I will read this Summer is written by noted Christian author, CS LEWIS. His immense contribution in understanding aspects of the human condition within the chapters of THE PROBLEM OF PAIN, will be reviewed and encapsulated as a testimonial to live without affliction. I surmise many discerning Christians or those of various faiths and denominations will come to fully understand the trials that will ascertain its purpose in the development of one's character.

In my opinion, the books that were chosen fulfill one's desire for integrity based advice. The PAIN and suffering which relates to INFLATION and the torment one feels in other aspects of life, are 2 topics that's best confronted in today's America. To be reminded of the truth and the manner for one's relief can be determined by the counsel both manuscripts reveal is important.

I have read several books by CS LEWIS. I've recommended his insightful books in the past. Steve Forbes ran for President in the Republican primaries in 1995 and 2000. He and his family have been involved in America's economics and financial circumstances for many years. He has also contributed his business acumen as editor of Forbes magazine

Let's hope and pray that INFLATION will end the continuing PAIN and suffering that many families have encountered by government and corporate policies that devastate the ability to provide for individual and family obligations.

Thanks again for your continuous support - during these challenging times in America - a nation under siege.

Be unafraid and courageous. God almighty is with you.
