Winds of Change

THE WINDS OF CHANGE

The winds of change are sweeping through America. Unexpected and unimaginable changes have shocked everyone in the western world. A man who has never been a politician or a governor of any state is to be the President of the United States of America. In my lifetime I have seen many unexpected things.

THE UNEXPECTED
I was born prior to World War 2 when Hitler was trying to win Britain on side against the world. The British Prime Minister comforted the British people with the words 'Peace in our time', but it was not to be. As Germany invaded Poland, Britain could not stand by and let Hitler's Germany take Poland or any other nation.
I lived through that dreadful war which killed 70 million men who were sacrificed to win freedom and peace from tyranny. I was only six years old when Germany's flying bombs exploded on our town; when London was blitzed, when Liverpool was torn apart, when Coventry was bombed.
Italy and Japan backed Germany, and America lost a whole fleet of ships in Pearl Harbour when Japanese planes bombed them. These events still remind us of what nations can do to each other. From those memories the 'triple alliance' has been welded to resist and counter terrorism. FULL POST

Letter to America from Australia

God's Rule

. What we are witnessing in America is a galvanized reaction to liberalism, free trade and globalization.Many Americans believe that liberalism has failed them. But a nation is judged by God and blessed by God. It is not democracy that makes a nation great, or the election of one party instead of another.

NATIONAL SOCIALISM
With the election of Donald Trump to the presidency of the United States of America, we are seeing the desire for a strong, safe and peaceful era. Socialism is too weak to oppose the forces of capitalism and too idealistic to govern the real world. Liberalism and free trade, deregulation and off shore businesses weaken the USA and Australia's economy, lowers job opportunities and engenders unsafe political interests abroad.

THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT
It is true that whatever political system is adopted a country is only as good as its leaders and as bad as its divisions. A democracy requires responsibility, politically and socially. . A true leader asks God for wisdom to rule, like Solomon did.

Civil Rights

THE TRUTH: If you know what a thing is you know what it isn't

No man has a civil right to marry another man because marriage is the lawful biological union of one man with one woman and their offspring, not the sexual union of one man with another man's rectum, which is uncivilised, the chief cause of AIDS and against the laws of nature.

WHEN I HAVE FEARS

When I have fears that I may never move
Or go again to where I've been,
Upon my bed I brood
In silent solitude.

I have thoughts of things that used to be,
Of windswept woods, of fires and floods,
Of summer days and seaside bays,
Fields of flowers and natures ways.

Why can't I rise and walk?
Why can't I laugh and talk?
What must I do to make your words come true?
Are my words too small, to weak, too few?

Please listen to my cry,
My tears, my sighs,
Is it because I am old that I lie upon this bed,
And suffer pain, fear and dread?

Have you abandoned me Lord
Like Jesus on the cross?
Have you forsaken me
To die in pain and never reign
O'er life's disdain?

'MY CHILD, for such you are,
Have you forgotten that I put you
In your mothers arms and fed you
With your mothers milk.
Have you forgotten that I am everywhere?
In days. In months in years,
In Christmas, Easter, Whitsuntide,
And always by your side?
At school and play, in every day.

My Child
I am in the seasons of the year,
The bare bleak winter snows and wind,
The springtime flowers and thaws
All are natures laws.
No less than now are they. FULL POST

TIME

Spring is a timely reminder that everything God does is on time. Solomon said 'there is a time for everything under the sun. A time to laugh and a time to cry, a time to live and a time to die;

We live by time, timetables, schedules and diaries because we know that time is sure to be on time, even when we are not. There may be a little time or the may be a lot,

But we must not forget how much time we have got.

Have we lost our roots?

Western civilisation has its roots in the Judaeo-Christian thought and way of life from which faith, reason and science came, but only in leaps and bounds after it was dislodged from the tyranny of kings and governments. This took place over a period of time between 16-1700 AD. The new theory of the solar system, held by Kepler and Galileo was slow in taking hold but when it did the world was seen objectively for the first time. The sun did not circle the earth but the earth orbited the sun. Night and day was due to the rotation of the earth facing the sun during the day and the moon during the night. That discovery broke open the hold kings and parliaments had on learning and authority.
Along with physics, philosophy and politics underwent scrutiny and change. This was because the bible was no longer a closed book to those outside the Vatican, the cardinals and the priests. It was written only in Latin but that changed when copies of the bible were printed in English based on the original translations. Anyone who could read, read the bible for themselves and their conclusions differed with those of the established church. Nonconformity was born and flourished in opposition to the crown and the church. Hence, the bible that had long been the property of the crown and the church became the property of the people. But whilst nonconformity was a movement against the authority of the church to rule over conscience and the Scriptures, it was disunited in doctrines and forms of worship and since the 17th century has remained so.

Spring

One of the first flowers of spring, magnolia petals

White like the wings of doves,

perched on the bare black branches

Announcing the end of winter and

the beginning of Spring.

Winter

WINTER'S FORCE

The earth in space turns its face away from sun's warm light

And wintery winds begin to blow with all their might,

Ice forms on lakes and seas

And nothing stirs in woods or trees;

Nights are longer than the days

As earth tilts from light to black bleak space

Save the moon who holds sun's light

And shines on earth's deep dark night.

Lord, winter's fierce forcce and power

Your might controls and quells

For the earth is Yours and all who in it dwells.

THE SEXUAL REVOLUTION
The first major changes occurred in the 18th century when land closures forced people off the land to live in towns and work in factories. This was a mass movement of people who left behind them a simple agrarian society where they lived off the land and where home and work were in one place. But in the town or city home and work were driven apart. No longer was it possible to work at home, spinning yarn or operating a hand loom; no longer possible to grow vegetables on the common land shared by the village, or have a goat, a lamb or hens in the backyard. Home was a cottage where a woman had her babies and weaned them, managed her household, her husband, spun yard, prepared meals, educated her children attended church, cared for the sick and did a thousand and one other duties: keeping the cottage clean, washing and ironing clothes, baking bread, cooking etc. Her husband worked on the land, or he was a tradesman, a blacksmith, a builder. Together, his wife and he kept the family together through spring, summer autumn and winter, sharing the work and the pleasures of family life. His wife was not his chattel or his servant but his lover and she worked just as hard as he did if not harder. FULL POST
