A Remarkable Poem
This poem was sent to me from Bill and Judy and they gave me the premission to use it. It is a remakable poem!

Bill writes.....The following is a poem written by Judge Roy Moore from Alabama . Judge Moore was sued by the ACLU for displaying the Ten Commandments in his courtroom foyer. He has been stripped of his judgeship and now they are trying to strip his right to practice law in Alabama !
The judge's poem sums it up quite well.

America the beautiful,
or so you used to be.
Land of the Pilgrims' pride;
I'm glad they'll never see.

Babies piled in dumpsters,
Abortion on demand,
Oh, sweet land of liberty;
your house is on the sand.

Our children wander aimlessly
poisoned by cocaine
choosing to indulge their lusts,
when God has said abstain

From sea to shining sea,
our Nation turns away
From the teaching of God's love
and a need to always pray.

We've kept God in our temples,
how callous we have grown.
When earth is but His footstool,
and Heaven is His throne.

We've voted in a government
that's rotting at the core,
Appointing Godless Judges;
who throw reason out the door,

Too soft to place a killer
in a well deserved tomb,
But brave enough to kill a baby
before he leaves the womb.

You think that God's not angry,
that our land's a moral slum?
How much longer will He wait
before His judgment comes?

How are we to face our God,
from Whom we cannot hide?
What then is left for us to do,
but stem this evil tide?

If we who are His children,
will humbly turn and pray;
Seek His holy face
and mend our evil way:

Then God will hear from Heaven;
and forgive us of our sins,
He'll heal our sickly land
and those who live within.

But, America the Beautiful,
If you don't - then you will see,
A sad but Holy God
withdraw His hand from Thee. ....

~~Judge Roy Moore~~ This says it all. May we all forward this message and offer our prayers for America to wake up and realize what we need to do to keep OUR America Beautiful. IN GOD WE TRUST!

Deuteronomy 5
6I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.

7Thou shalt have none other gods before me.

8Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth:

9Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me,

10And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.

11Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain: for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

12Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee.

13Six days thou shalt labour, and do all thy work:

14But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thine ox, nor thine ass, nor any of thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; that thy manservant and thy maidservant may rest as well as thou.

15And remember that thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt, and that the LORD thy God brought thee out thence through a mighty hand and by a stretched out arm: therefore the LORD thy God commanded thee to keep the sabbath day.

16Honour thy father and thy mother, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

17Thou shalt not kill.

18Neither shalt thou commit adultery.

19Neither shalt thou steal.

20Neither shalt thou bear false witness against thy neighbour.

21Neither shalt thou desire thy neighbour's wife, neither shalt thou covet thy neighbour's house, his field, or his manservant, or his maidservant, his ox, or his ass, or any thing that is thy neighbour's.

Thank you Bill and Judy!

wow, thank you Judge Moore, and thank you Terry.
Is it as bad in Canada ( or can you even see anything in winter, hehe) ?

That's a nice post, Terry. I wish he would run for president. He would get my and a lot of others' votes.
Did you see my post of the Ten Commandments in a monument beside our Texas Capital? I was standing beside it.
They have to be nice to Texas, we came from our own country and just might go back to one if they don't be nice to us. :-) Hah!

DEar Terry,
thank you again for being so sweet, gentle and considerate.
I cannot count the number of times you've stood by me, praying and encouraging.
May you be greatly rewarded.

When I grew up we had a framed copy of the 10 commandment hanging on the wall in every classroom at school.
And we started the day (still at school) with a hymn and the Lord's Prayer.

It has all changed, alas.
Being a fundamentalist Pentecostal daughter I believe all the ten commandments should be kept, including not killing anyone, unborn or adult.

Not being perfect in any way I still need to cling to the "Saving Grace".

God bless you all, I have each and every one of you in my prayers, and Dad Golden get a second prayer as well.
I'm so looking forward to the day when he opens his heart to his Savior. You know, he's not even a prodigal son, just a hurting, kind and loving son.
From Yours Felisol

Terry as your heart bleeds for your country my heart bleeds for mine where idolatry, false beliefs and paganism thrive at every step.
