This isn't an "April Fool's"! It is for real, guaranteed by God.
"But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all." (Isaiah 53: 5-6)
Isaiah's description of the situation in his day sounds like today. When will we ever learn? We follow the loudest, most attractive and have all our lives. One thing I believe we must do to survive and that is to do away with "Party Patriotism". Men and women are elected to office at all levels and they bow to the pressure of their party. They assume the position of being a loyal Republican, Democrat, Independent or whatever, never considering we all must serve our best effort for us all.
I believe it is time to lump all the political parties into one...make it "The American Party" and stop the bickering.
And that's what I get from My Box of Chocolates right here in my little corner studio under the shadow of Kyle Field.
