remember THE DROWNING MAN & St. Peter -- religious parable....

REMEMBER THE MEME ... Will owns a house on the a river. His town has been hit with huge storms. With each storm the river rises. News weatherman says it's the storm of the century. The river will soon rise over this house level, Will's is in danger. POLICE & firefighters urge evacuation NOW. Will ignores the suggestion & shouts at the TV, “God will take care of me!”
The river rises, friends in boats offer Will a ride to safety. Will says NO, “God will take care of me!” Will goes to his roof, the only place above water, Coast Guard sends helicopter to Will to rescue him. Will refuses and yells “God will take care of me!”
The water rises higher and poor ol' Will drowns. He comes to gates of Heaven & asks St. Peter how could God let him die when he had such faith? Will says "God would take care of him. How could God forsake him?" St. Peter tells Will, “ God tried to take care of you. You refused his help. He sent you a warning to evacuate, a rescue boat with your friends. God sent you the Coast Guard in a helicopter. YOU refused all the help that God sent. You failed to see that God can only help you, if you let him. Your help was right before your eyes. YOU refused to pay attention and accept it.

”This mask and vaccine thing may be one of the things God tried to send to help us them but they, the Anti-Vax people reject it.
It's THEIR FAULT. Don't blame God or say IT'S GOD'S WILL when you or a loved one die.

This goes out to my trump loving family. my sisters "adult" kids.
I haven't seen or talked with them since the Covid pandemic started.

2. DEMS VERSUS Rump lovers

i nave been a "Dem" since i was a kid in 1963. My dear mother (rest in peace Momma) supported JFK, dumb dad was a nixon lover. His mom, my Grandma Bartch was a staunch DEM, His sister, My dear Aunt JO was a Dem. I've just found some long lost & VERY DEAR cousins.
My mother's elder sister, My Aunt Stephanie. She was a lovely woman and SHE SUPPORTED HILLARY!! Before she passed at 104 years of age, she voted for Hillary against Donald Rump !!!
My 2 dear 2nd cousins are my age, & THEY ARE DEMS! Hubby's sister & her 2 adult kidss are dems. It is nice that part of my family are Dems after my GOP sister & kids. Now i can be round family who agree with me etc.
Well, enough rambling. HAVE A NICE DAY FOLKS.
