—Post-Election Thoughts... What Happened? What Needs to Happen? & National Emergency and Thoughts for Survival

I watched at Google live the map of the U.S. and prayed from 6 pm to 1:30 am, a few times on my face before God, and prayed for even those states that I thought impossible to turn from blue to red, to do so; and for the pink to turn red, or turn back to pink and then red... what a roller coaster ride (and I have NEVER followed an election or watched the results before because in the past, there was no difference between either side)... and I was truly amazed when nearly ALL of the states...

Which Flavor of Communism Will Win...? “Democrats” or “Republicans”...?

The nation is divided over this because half the nation is: 1. a Gimmie-grant / Rape-fugee/ alien invaders and their descendents (who are not lawful citizens*), 2. a native born person on welfare, 3. a government employee, 4. corrupt Big Business who wants the government to keep robbing Peter to pay Paul, 5. youth who have been brainwashed in the public schools who think that communism is good and that money grows on trees.  Thus half of the people voting in the U.S. (who should not be voting...

—Heavy Duty Thoughts: The Great Tribulation and the Greatest Hate Crime in Our History + Follow-up Q & A (Updated)

In my 10-year project (see at the end of this Rumination) A Coordinated Chronological Table of the Patriarchs, I list all the Patriarchs from Adam to Moses, and all interrelated dates at all known times, which shows how old each Patriarch was at the time as all others, and in relation to dates of key events such as Creation, the Flood, Call of Abraham, Exodus, etc.  I also projected that the year of Christ’s Return would be around the end of 2024 and that 2025 (beginning of the Millennial...

— Just One More Chance


Just One More Chance




Lorne J. Shields (Ireland, born in South Africa)

with Robert Alan Balaicius,

564pp., pb., 25.00 + P&H. 


The story begins in Ireland and progresses like a whirlwind, which, to explain more would give away the suspense of the story.  A gripping read you will not be able to put down and one of those rare books that you wish would never end. 

One rash decision, a regrettable mistake, can snowball and cause a chain-reaction like an avalanche; so-far reaching one may wonder if it can be outrun even if he flees to the other side of the world.  When such a brief mistake is made, as Tom McCauley finds out, it can carry you about like a beach-ball in the ocean, and all you can do is hang on for dear life and pray to God that you land safely, somewhere, eventually. 

Here begins a touching story of down-to-earth people (well... most of them), often real life stories from an earlier era.  A story of love and romance interwoven with cultures spanning several nations of a bye-gone era, hard work, drama, intrigue, foul-play, good versus evil, faithfulness, respect, devotion, desperation, and hope combined with real historical events.  The epic story of all creation is presented in a whirl: a momentary fall from grace followed by repeated attempts at restoration, while battling a myriad of unforeseen obstacles to that goal which creep out of the past into the present like vipers from a pit that just won’t die.  You will not be the same after reading this book; you may become a part of the drama itself: your heart knit with those of this story, as if they were family or dear friends.  At least, that is how it affected me.  Step back into the 1800s and enjoy an amazing story. . .

I cannot help but think of a paragraph penned by the eminent Charles Dickens, which shares similar sentiments with this moving, gripping, lively, fascinating story: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way — in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.” (A Tale of Two Cities)   —the Editor, Adapter, and Publisher, R.A.B.  A must read.  This could be the next Hallmark t.v. miniseries or motion picture.  First edition, limited printing of 150 (numbered) copies (which may become collector's items).
