Overkill


The above image is that of a recording made back in 1976, when we had our last outbreak of the Swine Flu. Then, President Gerald Ford wanted to get the message out...Yet, I do not remember the news media making as much of it as they are now. Of course, these days we have hours of news coverage, special reports, breaking news and OVERKILL on every news worthy story that hits the air waves.
I realize that the flu can be dangerous. And I certainly don't want anyone sick. But they are causing a panic when there is no cause, thus far.
They should be in such a panic about the decline of morality, here in what was once the good ol' U.S.A.! Where God is now mocked and some even deny His existence.
I know beyond a shadow of a doubt, that He has everything under control...I trust Him with every part of my life. I also know that He won't stand for such actions. One day his wrath He will pour out on every Nation. Lord, please forgive us our sins and heal our land.

Love to all!

I so agree with you that the media is causing a panic when a panic is not due!

And as for the morality of our world...Dawna and I just shared together at breakfast how we are so ready for the Lord to come back and snatch us out of this place! Sometimes I think that things can't get any worse when actually I know that they will.

Personally, I think it's just part of the bigger plan to make everyone think the government is our only hope, when in reality, they are becoming our worst enemy. Indeed, Lord please forgive us our sins and heal our land!

Many hugs...........

This morning here in the Dallas Morning News, I read that a toddler died. If you think it's crazy where you are, try living in Texas!!! With Mexico not too far away and their outbreak, you'd think we are all doomed! Numerous schools have been closed and they are Haz-Matting the place! It looks like something out of the Twilight Zone. The government is NOT our only hope. Our hope is in none other than Jesus Christ Himself! Period!

Connie...I understand that the toddler that passed away, just recently returned from a trip to Mexico...is that correct?
I can just imagine what all you in Texas are going through! Doo Doo... Doo Doo...Doo Doo...Doo Doo, that's me trying to hum the theme song from the Twilight Zone.
Deb, Diane and Connie...Jesus is the only answer!

AMEN! and you know... you can't call it the swine flu, it causes global financial implications due to decreases in pork sales, Good Lord, come get me now! It will be further known as the H1N1 virus :)

I think it is wise that we stay informed, but somedays...well most days, I get so weary of all that is happening..I just have to block it out, spend the day with my worship cd's and the Word.

love you

Hi Trish,
I totally agree, overkill !
Only God can heal our nation.
Our only hope is through our precious savior, Jesus.
Such a good post.
Blessings to you my sweet friend.
