The End?

Posted by Thomas Ault on July 9, 2020 at 1:10 PM Comments comments (0)
Subject: End Times? Matthew 24:3-14 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, "Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?" And Jesus answered and said to them: "Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name's sake. And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come." I have quoted this because we hear from so many that they think the end of the world is at hand. It is not! Probably since recorded time people have heard that untrue message. The people of Jesus�?? time thought that He would be their leader to a victory over tyranny�?�He was not. We live in a world that changes continuously whether it be from misguided politicians, misinformed people, pestilence or the turbulent weather�?�only God knows the answer and He is not telling us, but I would like to point out that we, as a people, are moving further in a dangerous direction that started centuries ago. If we were to live by His commandments first and foremost, we would have a peaceful world with contented people, but this is not going to happen in our generation so let�??s just try to live wisely rather than being led by a wicked few. The cowards hide in crowds and try to mislead them�?�the stalwart stand to be counted, and frequently alone.

This is an article taken from https://sovereignnations.com/2020/02/20/critical-race-theory-toxic-destructive-america/ I am providing it because it is explained by a Black Lady in the last two paragraphs as to her ethnicity and the desire for truth rather than prejudice. I have friend from every race and culture and religion and have found the enlightened of them are great folks that I would be proud to call my friends. Please take the time to read the following. Later, I will post the research I have done regarding slavery as endeavor taken by many for centuries. �??Under the guise of a venture called the �??1619 Project,�?� the New York Times is introducing revisionist history about race in America into classrooms across the nation without the normal peer review expected of educational materials. Jake Silverstein of the Times has written that the arrival of enslaved Africans �??inaugurated a barbaric system of chattel slavery that would last for the next 250 years.�?� But conspicuously absent from the dominant historical narrative is the fact that free blacks and Indian tribes were right there alongside whites, buying and selling slaves after slavery became legal in 1661. (Don�??t believe it entirely) Historian Philip Foner, in his book �??History of Black Americans,�?� provides critical details that American students should know about the origins of slavery in America: Critical race theory is an analytical framework to analyze institutions and culture. Its purpose is to divide the world into white oppressors and non-white victims. Instead of traditional forms of knowledge, it holds up personal narratives of marginalized minority �??victim�?� groups (blacks, Hispanics, Asians) as evidence (considered irrefutably by its nature) of the dishonesty of their mostly white heterosexual oppressors. The ultimate goal of this theory�??s proponents is to remake society so that the victim class eventually displaces the oppressors and becomes the new ruling class. Within this framework, �??white privilege�?� and its unearned benefits become responsible for economic, health, and social disparities in minority communities. This system of thought advances a narrative of blame that declares white America guilty for the plight of blacks. The syllabus explains that critical race theory is a theoretical concept that emerged from the civil rights movement. The goal is to �??give voice to groups who have suffered from systemic oppression, and develop theoretical and practical ways for students to deconstruct the power structures.�?� When it comes to education, members of the victim classes are to do all the teaching. It is a worldview and narrative that commands white people to sit in obedience and listen quietly to arguments about their unjust gains as well as their obligation to provide a remedy for them �?? in this case, to black Americans, whether they are descended from slaves or not. There is no way out for whites when it comes to race. Critical race theory assumes that racism is permanent and affects every aspect of society, including political, economic, social and religious institutions. The theory further advances the belief that being born with white skin, in itself, confers unearned privileges. Therefore, any societal attainment of colorblindness, in which race or ethnicity does not hinder opportunities, is impossible. Neutrality in law and decision-making is a pipe dream that can never be attained. Therefore, this mistaken reasoning goes, the oppressive system must be dismantled and destroyed. Universities and colleges have created a cottage industry of people who profit from indoctrinating America�??s future leaders with a dangerous and destructive ideology. These future leaders spread this diseased ideology, like a virus without antidote, into corporate boardrooms as well as K-12 public and private schools, both Christian and non-Christian. One notorious example of the �??teaching�?� materials for diversity and sensitivity training is a short YouTube video entitled, �??The Unequal Opportunity Race.�?� It has had more than 1.3 million views as of this writing. Its crippling message is clear: White boys and girls have unfair advantages, and white-imposed roadblocks prevent black boys and girls from achieving success. We can do better. Within Christian communities, there is a basis for countering destructive narratives that have invaded our educational institutions and corporate world. The solution for hatred, bitterness, and distrust can be found in New Testament principles. Rather than wallow in the past and revisionists�?? efforts to build a case for reparations, we, as Americans, need to move forward while practicing the forgiveness and love of neighbor that Jesus espoused.�?� We need not look any further than the �??golden rule�?� �?? do unto others as you would have them do unto you �?? to find the tools that enable us to transcend racial and ethnic conflicts that keep us from working together and celebrating our victories. I reached my formative years before critical race theory and cultural Marxism had gained a dominant foothold in academia. Even though I was born and grew up in rural Southern poverty during the era of segregation, I was not taught to hate white people or to hate America. Instead, my black teachers stressed our need to work hard and excel. I grew up to be a proud American who never doubted she lived in the greatest country in the world. No one around me encouraged me to see myself as a victim. I never fixated on the fact that I was black, poor, and female. Had I done so, I doubt I would have achieved anything.�?� Written by Carol M. Swain via Washington Examiner

Dump the Distress

Posted by Thomas Ault on April 5, 2020 at 3:45 PM Comments comments (0)
Subject: Dump the Distress When a person, man or woman, has been involved in their job for a long time, just staying home is a difficult thing to do. I know this because for many years I lived my job, at work, at play, even at home. Then I retired and about went stir crazy. I felt I had lost everything and discovered I needed something�?�anything would do. First, I discovered that when I was at work a lot of things were being done at the old home place that I had not considered before. For instance, the carpet got cleaned, the kitchen cabinets got waxed (we had wooden ones), the windows got washed along with the blinds, at least on the inside. One time I even discovered the toilet stoppage became magically unclogged. All of these things and more were just being handled without my help! I realized that I had married an engineer as well as the sweetest lady in town. It was time to do some household �??fix-its.�?� It was time for me to hold up my end of the marriage bargain. I just came to realize that I had all of those wonderful tools downstairs and each had a purpose other than handing on the pegboard or peeking out of my tool box in an attempt to make their owner look like he knew something outside of work. Soon, I became the repair expert because what I didn�??t know about, I discovered to be beautifully taught on the computer in our little home office. Finally, with the long overdue work handled and the overlooked �??honey do�?� list completed, I discovered that my wonderful spouse, who had put up with me for all of those years, was also relieved that she no longer had to put on overalls to handle all of the household chores. I was actually fulfilling my husband duties that I should have been handling all of this time. Needless to say, after a few weeks of completing the repairs, I became restless once again. I questioned myself. �??What in the world can I do now?�?� Again, I turned to the computer for some answers. I looked into wood working, furniture repair, writing articles and where to publish them, some photography, (I dusted off my old Cannon camera which had been in its case in the closet for some time) and even checked into the iPad that was gathering dust, to discover free puzzles and even a paint by number program. I have become much more relaxed after clearing my mind of the business details that I don�??t have to worry about, at least until I return to work. If it isn�??t work I have to return to, waiting to get out of the house can be lessened and halt the tension because I could do some of those things I read about on-line. Believe it or not, I have learned how to make wooden candle holders, I discovered I could use children�??s plastic figurines to produce my own small knickknacks. ( I used plastic western miniatures to create western scenes) Those puzzles I discovered on the iPad tend to keep me busy figuring them out for a couple of hours every day! (They give you a new puzzle to do each time you complete one) If you can�??t find something that is possible for you to do, try calling a friend on the phone, dropping a note to someone you probably should have writing to right along, or take a walk with your spouse around the block. The fresh air might give you some more fresh ideas and without doubt will be good

To: Opinion Editor 03-24-2020 Subject: Afghanistan I have to admit I have not paid particular attention when reading about foreign affairs, but after the article in today�??s paper (March 25) that tells us how much we are funding the Afghan situation, it occurred to me that I should pay more attention to what is going on. Perhaps more education is required for me to understand how and why our government does what it does, but it seems to me that common sense should become something more frequently used when doling out our tax money. According to what I have just read, Afghanistan has received $4 billion dollars annually from us while at the same time we are probably spending that much or more, plus the cost of our people�??s lives, fighting to preserve something they don�??t have, (a good government) and apparently don�??t want. Yes, it is understood that there is a movement for world governing, which is very premature due to the world status and our own dissatisfaction of the idea, but when we take the money out of our pocket to help fund a terrorist nation, while at the same time fighting with them�?�is this reasonable? Why are we funding a bunch of countries and increasing our national debt into the trillions of dollars? We were a country, originally founded on freedom of the people, allowing those people to live their lives in a free country that was, and still could be, self-sustaining. Yes, we need to be helping other peoples if we can, but funding a country we basically are at war with? The world�??s most impoverished countries have come to the belief that we, as a nation, are a money tree. Yes, France, Spain, and England helped us to get started. Of course each of those countries wanted a piece of the pie and that did not work out too well. Are we doing the same thing hoping for what little these countries have to offer given back to us in repayment? I wrote the other day about the $2 trillion we are looking at to cure the virus, and here we are handing out billions to countries that would cut our throats for a dime. I don�??t want to sound un-American, but how long can we finance every impoverished country in the world?

Perspective - Virus

Posted by Thomas Ault on March 24, 2020 at 11:00 PM Comments comments (0)
Subject: Perspective I would like to thank the many people in this country who are doing their best during this crisis. At the same time I would like to admonish those that think could have the answers in advance, to unknown situations that suddenly appear, and be prepared. I wonder, as I listen to the news broadcasters giving us the very worst scenarios and frequent slanted news stories, why I continue to do that. We are in the throes of a serious health problem�?�it is bad�?�it will get better. It is a shame powerful people like the mayor of New York talk about what the president should have done. He is the mayor of the largest population city in our country and with his apparent foresight should have had equipment and extra hospital arrangements set up in advance. Why was he not prepared? According to his statements on television, he blames the president for his situation�?�it seems to me he should have had his city prepared since he thinks the president should have been. It is so easy to �??blame someone else�?� for our own short sidedness. I know I have done that in the past, and regretted it later. This is not the time to find fault with others! Our statesmen should not be making demands to fit their own political agendas. By the time the debate is over the problem will be gone. People need to live and to exist but a two trillion dollar hand out is not the answer. In the years I have been alive there has never been a citizen handout made in this manner. It used to be prevalent in this country to stand up and be counted�?�seems today it is to stand up and put our hands out. Let us, as a nation, hunker down, move ahead, pray for an early reprieve, and make things work. I, for one, feel the president�?? message of hope for a reprieve by Easter is a good thought. For those that choose to understand it any other way than the way he meant it, I suggest that if you had to sit in that chair and make those decisions, you would come to understand the many sides of a problem that we, the people, rarely see.

Stupid is as Stupid Does

For the like of me I cannot understand how our politicians can, with a straight face, attempt to pull their usual shenanigans. Here we are in a pandemic and Charles Shumer, Democrat Senator from (of course) New York, is trying to force a bill he thinks is more important than the crisis we are facing by tagging it onto a much more significant one that could help the virus be slowed and maybe stopped by placing money into the right places to fight both the virus and the economic crisis. Are we about to allow this epidemic to bankrupt our country because of the Senate's bickering? It has been my philosophy for some time that to understand today, we have to remember yesterday and then build on it, not tear it down. There will always be mistakes made by all of us, and if anyone thinks they have never made one....I have news for you...you have, even if you prefer to not mention it! The government is not different since it is just a bunch of humans trying to make sense of it all...and sometimes not doing a good job of it. If some of them would join the real world it might be an advantage for us all. Opinions are like belly-buttons, everyone has one...well almost everyone. This is my opinion; The powers to be need to put down their combat ready shields and shake hands Once they do that, then forget about their pet bill passing and do the most expedient thing they can put together to alleviate the problems we are facing today. The bickering they are doing is wasting time and money as each day is worse than the last one and the problems will soon become unsurmountable. I think the title of this brief essay could be asserted at this point. I totally believe that stupidity has become the password to enter into the chamber of the Senate and the House of Representatives...maybe we should change the names of those, one time reverent chambers, to Ego Village and House of Irresponsible.

A Dream for Tomorrow

Posted by Thomas Ault on March 22, 2020 at 4:30 PM Comments comments (0)
Subject: Dream World It is not often that there is a situation the whole world is engaged in like this pandemic we are facing today. It appears to be something that every country is being plagued with. Are we overlooking this opportunity to unify as one global community, not separated by race, color, politics, gender, or country boundaries? Our military personnel are facing sanitary problems due to the government bringing home so many troops that they cannot be accommodated for by our military camps. Many countries are facing this problem and similar conditions with their military personnel being returned to areas where hunger, clean water, and inadequate living conditions exist. These are obstacles many poorer countries live with daily. If all countries would lay down their weapons, put on their masks, and fight this world-wide epidemic, they would come to realize how important each individual�??s life is. Can you imagine how wonderful it would be if we could have left our soldiers in a place where they were without risk of being killed, rather than bringing them back home in the midst of an epidemic that could put them in harm�??s way. Many countries are undoubtedly facing the same dilemma. If our world leaders would discontinue the desire that their country�??s dominance over each other was intelligent, and instead work on important benefits for their people, what a wonderful place this would be! Can you imagine safely exploring the great pyramids, or perhaps the intricate handiwork and crafts of the far and middle east, walking the great wall of China, or enjoying the cuisine of Italy while helping that country through the tourist industry. This is the perfect time to re-evaluate the positions of various leaders, many of whom are only concerned about their own egos, personal wealth, and power. This is a beautiful world and we, as its inhabitants, need to grow wiser, enjoy the fruits God provided for us all, and replace weapons with nutrition, learning, trade and understanding instead of waging war. Every country has something another does not; why can we not use the trading of product between countries rather than stealing it, and spend that military money on progress instead of war? Our country has spent $5.9 trillion dollars on the wars in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq since 911. Think about it!

Subject: Gossip Many of you will not remember the old gossip columnists and radio gossip personalities, but names like Hedda Hopper, Walter Winchell, and Louella Parsons might ring a bell with some of you. Walter Winchell used to start out with �??This just in!�?� Remember that? Today we have a new group of �??unauthorized�?? gossipers. I have no doubt that they are told to �??leak�?� information. It is always written in the newspapers �??speaking on the condition of anonymity because�?� yadda, yadda, yadda. I have no idea how other people feel, but as far as I am concerned this is gossip! When I hear it happening, when I read about the news, and the possible effects on someone, or some country, state, or whatever, I tend to tune it out as gossip�?� unchecked fake news. My question is, �??Why don�??t the supposed news breakers just break the news with substantiated truth?�?? The old gossipers generally told the truth about people that some people wanted to hear. I remember Hedda and her hats, not necessarily her comments. I remember Walter Winchell because he always sounded so authentic with his �??This just in!�?� As I recall, before every attorney in the neighborhood wanted to make a buck, most of us listened because the information was generally correct, but generally questionable and sometimes humorous. In today�??s world of fictional truth, those old gossipers, would be like Rush Limbaugh with suits being rampant. Each would be expounding their �??facts�?� and the public would be eating up the nonsense like a bear with honey. It would be much more valuable if these, so-called news leakers, were non-existent. Some of what they leak causes real damage to countries, and to secret intelligence exposing future military plans. There are things that cause serious problems. Frequently they are �??leaked�?� on purpose for political purposes, which is politically degrading. Let�??s put a stop to these �??whistle blowers�?� and treat them with the same respect we would with that best friend who just told the neighbors all about the private secret you told him or her.

A Time in History

Posted by Thomas Ault on February 5, 2020 at 4:55 PM Comments comments (0)
THE CHOICE IS YOURS! Every major country in history, and every major country today, wanted or wants to be in charge. Each political hack that is elected, or takes control by force and fear, or perhaps is born into the position, wants his/her country to be the strongest, the richest, the wisest, and the leader of the rest regardless of a need for that endeavor. Our world is made up of leaders who have never, and will never, settle for peace when the temptation to be the country in charge is in sight, and as long as greed and money make it enticing. No doubt there is a need for moneyâ�?�¦there always is, but it must be used wisely. Think about thisâ�?�¦if each country used their own God given products to increase their countryâ�?��?�s ability to be independent, and all other countries would do the same with their products and then trade those products accordingly with each other for goods they require; or if the corporations of this world would realistically increase their income (especially in the upper echelon of their leadership) and take care of its people as they once didâ�?�¦ these world problems could be solved?. Unfortunately, we have too many greedy executives, and others in powerful positions, who worship power and money more than the people that make those countries great. What happened to the pride in our country? Many of the citizens of this great country view these things as unimportant, but I for one, belief we are witnessing the beginning of the end of this beautiful and free country that has been built on freedom, necessity, desire, and hard work. If we allow our government to succumb to socialism, we will inherit the miseries that go with that choice as so many other countries have. Please take a look at China, Cuba, Laos, Vietnam, Bangladesh, Guyana, India, North Korea, Portugal, or Shri Lanka. Perhaps you would like to move there and become a socialist, or perhaps you would prefer communism like Cuba and Russia. Another strong prospect you may want to consider would be Muslim countries with Muslim rules. A large part of Great Britain has moved in that direction. I visited the Netherlands a few years back and was warned to stay out of certain areas due to Muslim domination and it was considered unsafe for any tourist. Or, you can just stay here and NOT LET this happen to us! My readers, we are in trying times. Our future is not looking as it should. Are you going to succumb to the fantasy â�?��?life of leisureâ�?�� where you would supposedly get everything for free? (That is as long as the government can exist without going broke?) There is no worse job to have then to have that of the President of the United States. There is no position in todayâ�?��?�s government that is trusted 100% by the citizens of this country, including that one. There are good and bad interests on both sides of the table, and if you donâ�?��?�t think so you have not been keeping up. I have to say, however, that even with the vulgarity and bad political judgement of the president, he has lived up to most of his pre-election promises ir-regardless of his egotistic attitude, he has worked to fulfill his obligations while being constantly been under fire by the democratic/socialist party that has spent more time in an attempt to derail the president than they have on what they were elected to do. Now we are coming into a new year. Perhaps a good look at what the future appears to be bringing us, as to political administration personnel would be worthwhile, keeping in mind, we have not seen what lays ahead with the Republican party hopefuls. Democratic Caucus - Iowa A quote: â�?��?For the first time, the Iowa Democratic Party planned to report three sets of results: a tally of caucusgoersâ�?��?� initial candidate preference; vote totals from the â�?��?final alignmentâ�?�� after supporters of lower-ranking candidates were able to make a second choice, and the total number of State Delegate Equivalents each candidate received. There is no guarantee that all three will show the same winner when they're ultimately released.â�?�� If this is an example of what the political parties of our country in 2021 and beyond, perhaps it is time to completely re-evaluate the true needs of our country. I have never been 100% Republican nor 100% Democrat, but have attempted to ferret the truth and vote accordingly. Today, finding the truth is more than a full time job. We, as a country, are quickly losing our moral fiber and are in the process of watching the decay of a once strong country. Our legislators only view one thing as necessary, and that is that they become re-elected, regardless of their performance, good or bad. It is time that we take this country back and it would seem the only remaining way of doing that is by eliminating those in power through the ballot box next November. Looking at history of other great countries it stands out that they were affluent, they were powerful, and they had a loyal citizenryâ�?�¦then the people took it for granted all was well as they were being â�?��?sold down the road.â�?�� The first two paragraphs are direct responses by the democratic convention in Iowa, not something I made up. This is just a repetitious continuation of politics for some time now. The democrats have spent three years doing very littsle with their time but trying to eliminate the president who won over Hillary Clinton. Mrs. Pelosi has spent so much energy on this endeavor that she has proven she has no place in the position to which she has been given. Her actions during the State of the Union message were deplorable and not acceptable as the third most ranking person in the government. Whether she agrees or not with the president, being respectable of the position is important and her blatant disregard for that office is something any young adult should consider bad conduct and hopefully not follow her misguided lead. Basic Information on Prominent Politicians Trump: There is little doubt that being raised in luxury, given several breaks in the financial world, and believing one has done everything due to his/her own ability could easily become a narcissist with an ego the size of the entire earthâ�?�¦thatâ�?��?�s right, no doubt! Taking that into considerationâ�?�¦is this the kind of person we need running the country? There are going to be a lot of yeas and a lot of nays to that question, butâ�?�¦what have we had for several years now? We have had glad handers, give away artists, war pushers, peace pushers, and a long list of governing typesâ�?�¦we have had the country driving further and further into debt and blaming it on the leaderâ�?�¦rather than the leader(s). I, for one, am not pleased with our presidentâ�?��?�s method of communication but maybe I am past this new means of communication called â�?��?Tweeting.â�?�� I do not like exaggerations, name calling, negativism about others, and bullying. In todayâ�?��?�s political climate there appears to be no going back to â�?��?almost acceptable politicians.â�?�� However, I do feel he is living up to his promises while fighting an enemy that has no foundation except hatred and jealous retaliation which has blinded them to common sense and reality. There is little that can be done only by the presidentâ�?�¦he is strong, but our government is supposed to be governed by the elected people, those elected by we the people, not we the immigrants, or we the people who want everything for nothing, who assume that money for those things grows on trees. Pelosi: 1. Pelosi has been credited for spearheading President Obama's health-care law when it seemed that it would go down in defeat. (It raised the cost after being initiated to an unstainable level for many of those that bought into it. There were good parts and bad ones, and many of the bad ones have been eliminated, but not the cost.) 2. She quotesâ�?�¦â�?�� We need to work toward the goal of equalizing income in our country and at the same time limiting the amount the rich can invest.â�?�� ( Pelosi's earnings are connected to her husband's heavy investments in stocks that include Apple, Disney, Comcast, and Facebook). 3. â�?��?We need to raise the standard of living of our poor, unemployed and minorities. For example, we have an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in our country who need our help along with millions of unemployed minorities. Stock market windfall profits taxes could go a long ways to guarantee these people the standard of living they would like to have as â�?��?Americans (many people are relying on their stock investments to retire on. Taking away that income would cause serious consequence for millions of retired people who worked hard for their money, unlike many of the elected government â�?��?fat catsâ�?�� who have made their money from investments most of us never knew about plus an income we, the taxpayers pay for) 4. In 2009 that Pelosi's average net worth was US$58,436,537, ranking her 13th among 25 wealthiest members of Congress. Net worth in 2014 was US$101,273,023 having ranked 8th out of 25 wealthiest members of Congress 5. Pelosi voted against the 1995 Balanced Budget Proposed Constitutional Amendment 6. In 1999, Pelosi voted against displaying the Ten Commandments in public buildings, including schools 7. March 2009, the New York Post wrote that the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch had obtained emails sent by Pelosi's staff requesting that the United States Air Force (USAF) provide specific aircraftâ�?��?�a Boeing 757â�?��?�for Pelosi to use for taxpayer-funded travel. (And she talks about other people?) 8. In July 2015, Pelosi said she was convinced Obama would have enough votes to secure the Iran nuclear deal, then In 2016, Pelosi argued against the passage of two bills, that if enacted, would block Iran's access to the dollar and impose sanctions for its ballistic missile program: Joseph Biden: 1. The Times added that Joe Biden, in 2016, â�?��?threatened to withhold $1 billion in United States loan guarantees if Ukraineâ�?��?�s leaders did not dismiss the countryâ�?��?�s top prosecutor, who had been accused of turning a blind eye to corruption in his own office and among the political elite.â�?�� The prosecutorâ�?��?�s name was Viktor Shokin. (This was not proven) According to John Solomon, it might be different from the presidentâ�?��?�s problem with withholding money for a favor. (Question, how different is this from todayâ�?��?�s request from President Trump? Can it be explained?) John Bolton: 1 Based on Boltonâ�?��?�s public financial disclosure report, he doesnâ�?��?�t appear to be financially reliant on future book sales. (Only one question hereâ�?�¦should anyone publishing a book about private information be regarded as influential in a probe into the very subject of the unpublished book?) THIS NOVEMBER WILL BE THE TIME TO VOTE YOUR CONSCIENCE! NOW IS THE TIME TO TAKE YOUR STAND. CHOOSE WISELY!

A New Direction

Posted by Thomas Ault on December 1, 2019 at 3:55 PM Comments comments (0)
Well, it is time for me to do something different...as many of you know we have been fighting cancer in our household for a year now and only the good Lord knows who is winning, it or my wonderful wife, Paulette... At any rate I can tell you that after a year of 24/7 caregiving, I woke up feeling a bit old the other day. Being around for so long has probably got something to do with the feeling...who knows for sure? There is a new Tom Ault book in the process....it is written and some folks are checking it over...it is called "The Parables" and it is taken from the Bible. There are many books out there regarding this subject so this is not something new, or probably not even profound but, it is my take on the parables so if any of you would like to take a look at it, let me know and I will send you a download. Now, many of you have signed in and few have left any messages or other information on the site...I would like to hear from all of you, and I hope that you are all well and enjoying the holiday season. Feel free to check out any of the books for sale, and if you want a free download of the newest one, let me know. I recommend downloading it using Microsoft Word. If you reduce the size a bit you have two pages on your screen and that will allow you to have the picture relating to the parable across from the parable and it will look like the book should when it gets published. Hoping you are happy and healthy, Tom Ault
