Elise Stefanik: From Republican Moderate to Trump Favourite

"Coming leadership ouster of liz. Cheney is about much more than the sacking of the number three house republican it is an unconditional surrender by one of our two major political parties to former president trump. And his big lie that the twenty twenty election was somehow stolen. Cheney's crime is not that she isn't conservative. It's that she's not conservative as defined by today's republican party which apparently means unquestioning loyalty to the defeated former president. She stands accused of telling the truth that the election was not stolen and for criticizing trump citing the january six capital interaction. This episode is just the latest chapter in the party's purging of its legacy the bushes the mccain's the romney's and now the chains names that appeared on eight of nine presidential tickets for one thousand nine hundred eighty two thousand twelve all now. Essentially excommunicated by the party's base and leadership and for one reason only the message go along with donald trump and his lies or just go away. Will this help. Republican election prospects in the short term. Perhaps but what does it mean for. Democracy when a great political institution refuses to accept free and fair election. Results and rejects. Its own who choose principle over party. I have heard from members concerned about her ability to carry out the job as conference chair congresswoman lizzie cheney facing a vote as soon as wednesday to ouster from leadership after criticism of donald. Trump's big lie at the election was stolen and his role in the capital attack. We will not forget what happened on january six and that the single greatest threat to our republic is a president who would put his own self interest above the constitution sherry me writing in the washington post this week. The question before us now is whether we will join trump's crusade to de-legitimize and undo the legal outcome of the twenty twenty election. The house republican leaders have answered. That question you know i. I've lost confidence boosting. New york's elise stefanik who trump has endorsed. My vision is to run with support from the president. What they're saying is if you don't go along with the big lie. You basically need to go so phonic voted with president trump. Just seventy eight percent of the time. Criticizing is border wall opposing him on nafta and trade even voting against his signature. Twenty seventeen tax cuts. Cheney voted with trump ninety three percent of the time once trump critic has been insulting women stefanik became a high profile trump defender during his first impeachment when she opens that mouth you at killing them. Elise trump meanwhile has denounced cheney unremittingly. This week he called her a warmongering fool who has no business and republican party leadership. The good news is in her state. She's been censured all seventeen. Republicans who voted to impeach or convict. Donald trump have faced censure votes or rebukes at home. Utah senator mitt.

Will the Boston Bruins Ever Fix Their Power Play?

"Those practices that burns will have, I imagine a large portion, it's going to be devoted to fixing that power play, just because it's been stuck in a rough way for a long time, I think since April 8th, the Bruins have six total power-play goals and four of them have come from Craig Smith. And and another one is kind of stupid crazy. I mean, you can make the case. You like just from the I test that the second unit has looked a lot better than the first for a long, long time now. So they have to do something to to get that first pulp a unit rolling. Whether it's worth switching a Personnel or Bruce Cassidy is always identified troubles with entries as being a thing that's really going to hurt that top power-play unit over the last month. So I think they've got to really kind of fix that and not make it be you know I don't think you want you expect you to jump from where it is right now to all Cynthia not top three unit again right. I don't think you're going to have that whether it's just like it's not the cards at guys on exit game. I'm gonna Torey Krug. Yeah, yeah, exactly. I don't think either you're going into it. Expecting them to cash in on, you know, thirty percent of their chances, but you're still need more than the output. You're getting off. Because I think you know, right now the Bruins is, the deadline are outscoring teams at even-strength 37 to 15, which is crazy. It's crazy that there there's going this many of the 2011 Bruins now, where it's like, wow, they're, you know, they're dissecting teams on even strain for them to hopefully, kills, all the momentum. Pretty much been the case for a month now. So if you even get that power-play back to, you know, 20% over this this long stretch, it goes a whole a long way. Especially in the playoffs, in terms of Just Landing more punches against the opponent's. So I think in terms of x's and o's power plays probably stands out the most to me. Yeah.

Is that the right move? Is this going to keep going your general thoughts? Yeah. I mean I can see any reason why you would take them out of the rotation at this point right? I think Bruce Cassidy more or less said that had this band you know the middle of the season and not had a little bit more of a window or maybe a bit more breathing room in the standings to incorporate and get a walk back into the mix. Then of course you do that right? I mean it's not like they're they were looking forward to the Sierra Club, part of the plan to have a whole lot, get bumped out of the rotation and to have Jeremy swimming step.

"Welcome to another edition of Opening God's Word I'm Janet Cassidy. Let's get right at it. The words of today's reading our words we could use today in the midst of this pandemic, as the disciples of Jesus followed him into a boat, a storm came up, and they woke him up, pleading Lord Save Us, we are perishing, and what was the response Jesus gave them. Why are you terrified? o You of little faith. Then he calmed the winds, and the C. which amazed the disciples who were left to humbly ask what sort of man is this? Whom even the winds in the Co Bay I think the idea of being terrified comes pretty close to how a lot of us feel today as the number of cases of the Corona virus surge throughout our beloved states and the whole world, there is definitely a fear of perishing as we watch the daily news reports, but what we don't want to miss is the fact that even in the midst of this health crisis God is not abandoned us. As an every event in our life, he is in the middle of the mess. The father was with Jesus during his passion death. We have to remember. He was in Mary's heartbreak. He's been in foxholes entrenches in every war. The father is with us in every out the suffering and sadness we experience. He understands us because he created us. The question that always arises from this is. Why doesn't he do something to stop it? For sure God does not force pain and suffering on us. That doesn't make sense when you consider that he is love and mercy incarnate. Why would he force suffering on us? But he does allow it i. have frequently talked about this. This idea of free will in our exercise of it. It is on display today. As the great mask divide roles forward, some people oppose wearing masks other people they embrace it our leaders. Some of them encourage us to do what will keep us in other safe from harm. Others don't but frankly some people simply cannot be saved from themselves in exercise of our free will, if our impulse is to act against common sense, and for the good of others putting them at risk. Rather than using wisdom this must leave. God's scratching his head. But. That's the beauty and ugliness of free will, isn't it? If God treated us like puppets on a string and directed every move, it would change. US fundamentally love would not exist except in God himself because love only. In our humanity as a free choice, it cannot be something forced. If it were forced, it wouldn't be love. God has given us the free will to choose good. But he must allow it when we choose bad. It really is up to us to differentiate between the two, and it shouldn't be that hard when you consider the groundwork. God has already laid down for us. It is up to us to follow it. I'm Janet Cassidy. Thank you for listening I. Hope You have a blessed day.

"I'm Janet Cassidy. Thank you for joining me today. For another edition of Opening God's word years ago I heard a chastity speaker talking about love. Her example stuck with me. She often talked to teenagers and was trying to help them understand different ways. That people think they're in love and she said you know there's such a thing as a pepperoni pizza love and then there's a love where you would die for someone she said with a pepperoni pizza. Love you might say. Oh that satisfies me so much and I just look forward to it and I love it so much but true love. True love is different. True love is where I give up my life for someone. Jesus talks about that today. In the gospel of John Chapter Fifteen. He says he chose us. We don't choose HIM IN AND CHOOSING US. What did he do? He laid down his life. He says no one has greater love than this to lay down one's life for one's friends. You are my friends. When think of loving each other loving our neighbor we might not have to die for them but we do need to think about how to serve and if we can serve if our actions can be expressions of love then that is a great love sometimes in the ordinariness of life. That's what we're called to do. Maybe we have to do something for someone that we don't really feel like doing. Maybe this love this true. Love looks selfless. This is not a pepperoni pizza. Type of love that Jesus is talking about when he tells us to love one another now not at all. This is true self giving love and for you and I it might really just be in the ordinary things of daily life. So I want you to think about that today and think about how you might serve someone else in a way.

"They step out of line ladies step out of line. I WanNa talk to you today. In edition of Cassidy comments about that phrase for joining me. I didn't even watch the EMMYS this year but I heard about the speech by actress. Alex Pristine Burstein told a quick story about her grandmother. Who was a Holocaust survivor? She said that when her grandmother was in line to be shot into a pit she asked the guard. What would happen if I stepped out of line? He told her he didn't have the heart to shooter. But somebody would so. She stepped out of line and lived. What a powerful story about one woman's courage. Her grandmother took a chance to stand up against evil and not only live to tell about it but ushered a new generation to life like Burstein said neither she nor her children would be here if it wasn't for her grandmother's courage to be able to do that. To be able to step out of line is to brave. The unknown in that moment her grandmother took a risk which put her life in immediate danger but of course her life was already in immediate danger. Her choice was between certain death if she didn't step out of line in a glimmer of hope that if she did maybe just maybe she would have a chance at living. What were the odds that she would have survived such a daring act? What really amazes me is how quickly she must have made her decision. She probably didn't have any time to think it. Through to analyze the pros and cons really way her decision she just out of sheer courage with a dash of hope. Will you be ready to step out of line? If you must as a disciple of Christ it may be as great as martyrdom or as simple as being the first to speak of your faith among friends or strangers but the key is to prepare yourself now so that when or if the time comes you will be ready. Thank you for listening. I'M JANET CASSIDY I hope. You have a blessed day in God's word..

But it's important to know that there is suffering and sacrifice as disciples of Christ right so I want to focus rate in verse nineteen eighteen when they hand you over. Do not worry about how you are to speak or what you are to say you will be given at that moment what you are to say for it. It will not be you who speak but the spirit of your father speaking through you. Let's focus on that. Lots of disciples out there today. Potential Henschel disciples who are saying. Well I can't talk about Jesus you know I don't know enough and you know I don't WanNa get into an argument which which is smart. You don't want to get into an argument with someone but you know I just don't know enough to hold my own when somebody starts throwing scripture at me or they start you you know saying things that I don't understand it's too far over my head but listen to this. Do not worry about how you are to speak or what you are to say because see God is with you. In that moment he will help you find the right words. A lot of people say I wrote something I said something and wow wow. That wasn't me. I don't know where that came from. This is where it came from God. The father he will raise up the words that you have he will raise them up and they will land hopefully with a lot of meaning and impact for the person you are in conversation with so if you get into that conversation about out. Faith don't be afraid because God is with you and if you know the father well if you're in prayer and and you have a real sense of who you you are in relationship to God then you're going to understand the father and he is going to be able to speak through you with love and kindness but with honesty so we've got to remember that we are called to speak the truth even in the face of conflict that doesn't mean we fight and argue about scripture scripture and all that it just means that we are bringing Christ into the world and we are helping others see and maybe being drawn onto him through the faith that we express as well. So that's a good word is. We started out this Christmas season. Continue to say. Merry Christmas to the people because this is the time of Christ right. I hope you have a blessed. And God's Word I'm Janet Cassidy. Thank you for listening..

"Today I wanNA reflect on the him. Oh come come Emmanuel. We're familiar with that. We hear all the time as we're moving into The days closer closer to Christmas but listen to what it's saying oh come on comey manual and ransom captive Israel that mourns and lonely exile here until the son of God appear. I was thinking about this when I was reflecting on it this morning. That we are like light captive Israel right we are actually in exile from God. We're captive emptive here on earth. We're not with God in heaven where we are called to be so we're morning in lonely. Only exile right until God appears and then when Christ comes again we are freed to be with him. How amazing that is this him that we sort of take for granted because we hear all the time is amazing? Amazing Oh come now. Wisdom from on high who orders off things mightily. Do you believe that God orders all things things mightily you should. He is the one who put this earth into motion who created this world. Who created did you and he did it in an orderly way and so now we're waiting we're holding our breath waiting for Christ to to come and free us from this exile from him because we're not fully with him as we should be because of our our sinfulness right and so we try as hard as we can to move towards purity in this life and one day we will be with God God but we shouldn't plan on doing that any sooner then? He calls US home so we don't rush into that. So in the meantime meantime like Israelites. who were in exile in Babylon we to make do the best weekend in exile that we are experiencing? I hope you're enjoying these days growing closer to Christmas. I thank you for being with me a listening and I pray that you have a blessed day in God's Word I'm Janet Cassidy thank you for being with me..

"Mary that she is going to be with child. But I WANNA take a side track today. I WanNa go backwards. I WANNA go back to last Sunday's reading the letter of James when my husband and I were doing our advent devotion this goddess into a pretty good discussion. I'd like to share a little bit of it with you. Chapter five verse. Seven letter of James says be patient therefore brothers until the coming of the Lord so my husband and I started talking about this coming of the Lord for now. We know that this reading is appropriate as we look towards Christmas and the coming of the birth of the savior of the world but we also talked talked about how at that time people were expecting that second coming of Jesus to happen any day. It could be any minute right and so we started talking about in. This is my question to you is how do we live our lives knowing. That Christ is coming coming but we don't know when could it be today. Could it be tomorrow yes. Of course it could. What would Christ find you doing when he comes? uh-huh back would he find you ready. See we we. Don't imagine really that Christ might show up later. Ron Tonight or tomorrow so we kind of live as if we've got all kinds of time and then it's just some day we're going to meet our maker but wait a minute. What is is he going to find you doing? I want you to take this question very seriously. A friend of mine years ago we rent a discussion. We were in our twenties and and it was her idea that it was not okay to ever go to a bar K.. That was her thought and she said this over probably twenty thirty years ago to me. She said if God comes that's not where I want him to find me now. I'm not arguing. Go to a bar. Don't go to a bar. My point is it was a good question then and and it's a good question today. God shows up. What do you want him to find you doing? My first thoughts turned to. Wow if Jesus is coming tomorrow I'VE GOTTA get busy pouring out love responding to needs stop being selfish and thinking about things that don't don't matter. I want you to take a few minutes in this letter to James Chapter five verse seven be patient therefore brothers until the coming of the Lord so we've got to be patient but we have to be diligent and prepare our hearts and this is a perfect time during advent to be thinking about that. We're all waiting. We're all excited. The Birth of Christ is coming so let's focus on that and let it change and transform our lives when we encounter the saviour of the world. I'm Janet Cassidy I hope you have a blessed day in God's Word Thank you for listening..

"Here we are just a few days before Christmas. The Birth of Christ an angel. Gabriel is so busy in these readings for this week. Were Right in the gospel of Luke Chapter One. Today they're talking about John. The baptist Zachariah is of the priestly class and he has been taking his turn in the sanctuary and he goes into the sanctuary to light. The incense in there is an angel standing next to him informing him that he and his wife Elizabeth in their old age are going to conceive a son and of course Zachariah wanted to know how this is going to happen and as the story unfolds. He is discovered to be mute when he comes out he cannot speak and eventually he Gains his voice back when he names his son. John this is John John the Baptist and this is Gabriel the same angel that comes to marry in announces that she is going to conceive. Jesus so now we've got John. Jesus their cousins uh-huh and they're both conceived one in old age with Zachariah Elizabeth and when he comes out of the sanctuary the people for realize he's seen a vision because he cannot speak but as the story unfolds. He gets his voice back when he names his son John and so we we have a beautiful opportunity this week to step out of all that business. I I know you're doing your end of days shopping just before Christmas. I'm doing the same thing but we need to be focused. We need to stay true to to what this is even all about and so we need to get into that story that prepares us for the coming of Christ in so you want to go and look in the gospel of Luke Chapter One and start reading that infancy narrative. You will be blessed. You will be blessed as you discover John in Jesus one more thing I want to mention about these narratives about John. Jesus when the Angel Gabriel comes to marry when the Angel Gabriel comes to Zachariah what does he say. Do not be afraid. I want you to hang onto those words over the next few days especially hang onto that God himself sent an angel to remind men not to be afraid. So whatever. You've got going in your life right now that might be causing you a lot of stress take it from God himself that he is with us right. Jesus name as we mentioned before Emanuel means God is with us so take that God is with us in put it together with the do not be afraid from these infancy narratives and cling to that no matter what is going on in your life and I encourage you again again every day. Stay Christo centric. Stay focused on Christ. Do not be distracted. This is the coming of the savior of the world and it is a time for us to be rejoicing. I hope you have a blessed day. In God's word thank you for joining me. I'm Janet Cassidy have a happy advent..

"Welcome to cassidy comment oh goodness stuffed in different parts of them were a few odds and ends reading materials small photo albums some of the simplicity is not easy but at the heart of it is our attachment to are things we all need to decide how much is enough or too much three books she was one of those people who when you bought or received something you had to give something up mission now something you need to know about me setting out on a mission is that it isn't just my mission it becomes our mission and mall briefcase then he carries his Bible in you get the picture after noticing how messy these bookcases had become I set out on I like to go back and read over some of them that I have found inspirational I read according to my mood so I might want it doesn't take very long for me to get myself and others moving there were times my husband would suggest that we needed to clean out the bookcases but I just couldn't face them until I really looked at them the other day I couldn't face them because I was too attached to my books could part with will donate those as I went through the process I had to be honest with myself some books that I had acquired have to take care of or the tables that have become wonderful stations to pile things on well many years ago my husband made us some beautiful bookcases valve's included books that didn't even fit so we laid them flat on the shelves we even managed to stuff into our bookcase my husband's Oh I interviewed a prominent Catholic speaker who was a religious sister I always think of her when I'm cleaning out because she only allowed herself that were more text bookie I knew I probably wouldn't take them up for study anytime soon I have mentioned this before but when I was doing my radio show surely help someone else do I really need so many jackets or blankets or shoes or whatever okay I'm definitely not a shoot Russ but how many of take the time to really think about it one thing that helps me is to think that whatever I am getting rid of little retreat book today or an Inspirational Book Tomorrow I might take up a good leadership book or even revisit a long ago rest is that we have put to good use since it has been many years since he made them it has been many years that we have been collecting things it room the other day I saw the bookcases I really saw them for the first time in a long while all actor but that's for those of you who are I am sure there are few of you out there the point is there are tons of people who would love a warm jacket in the winter on them he said the bookcases onto very nice cabinets that he made so there has been plenty of space to fill well while I was sitting in our appea- okay but today was the day so I started pulling out books I came across a handful of them that I see good pair of shoes or an extra blanket how much of what I have sitting in a closet that I might wear some day could really help someone else today all serious clutter not just messy bookcases is really a burden and to free yourself of stuff is very life giving because you start small one area like a bookcase or one item like shoes be honest with yourself and think about others that might be a need and don't forget that to begin with prayer yes prayer ask God to give you a heart for those who might be in need ask them to help you to let go of your attachment to thing quickly discovered that what you have been covering up is not so much stuff but perhaps yourself and your lifestyle in your dependence on things ask yourself what is buried beneath the clutter I think it might be surprising to learn that it might be about fear US maybe insecurity or even unresolved grief decision making becomes a big part of it as well so that's what I'm talking about it is important to note that there's a big difference between a messy bookcase set has been ignored and allowing your overflowing spaces to crowd out God in your life because the freedom that is found in simplicity us up to learn more about ourselves and God if you don't see the connection that I'm talking about right now between your clutter and God just give it a try go ahead and start opening up those spaces so that you may open your heart in your physical space as well probably more than any of us realize the clutter in your home and I'm talking about and no I'm not talking about your spouse I'm talking about that counter that is cluttered with junk mail flyers and miscellaneous stuff and you will quickly discover what I mean I'm not saying it's easy but it really is worth the time and energy you will invest in doing this thank you for listening I'm Janet Cassidy and I hope if you have found this podcast useful that you will share it with a friend.

"Today's scripture comes from Psalm. One thirty seven by the rivers of Babylon we sat mourning and weeping when we remembered Zion the people that were next I'll babylon they were grieving and what happened in one thirty seven at tells us that their captors wanted them to give them the words of a song that was joyful sing something good and here's the verse that strikes me the most how how could we sing a song of the Lord in a foreign land those of you who have had grief in your life. You understand the SOM-. You understand that you're living in a foreign land. Your loved one is gone. You don't know where to go. Oh you don't know what to do. Things look completely different. The landscape has changed and like those who are sitting there mourning and weeping along the rivers of Babylon John. You two would say I hung up my harp. I'm I'm not I'm not GonNa do that and you might also say. How can I sing a song in this new foreign land but then comes psalm one thirty eight. I thank you Lord with all my heart art. I thank you Lord with all my heart. It goes on to say that they will sing of the ways of the Lord. How great is the Glory Glory of the Lord. The Lord is on high but cares for the lowly and knows the proud from afar. God hasn't forgotten us in this foreign land. Whatever that foreign land is for you whether it's grief from loss or suffering or pain whatever that foreign land is for you know that God God has not left you alone. The final verse says says the Lord is with me to the end Lord. Your love endures forever. God is with us forever. I'm Janet Cassidy. I hope you have a blessed day in God's word.

"Welcome to cassidy acidy comments. I'm glad you are tuning in for this discussion on dirt dirt you say why are you talking about dirt well well. I'm not actually focusing under more specifically grass. You see we recently had to have our deck rebuilt and we needed to get some dirt hurt and plant some grass in order to bring the great up to code so we got some rich soil that the dirt supplier promised was so good. Did you could grow anything in it but i'm getting ahead of myself. Apparently the homeowner before us must have had some sort of a deck doc building party with friends who were likely offered adult beverages for their labor. At least that's what we are assuming since they inadvertently only forgot to put in some support posts in the most trafficked area of our deck where our boards began to sag and they built the deck seven seven and a half inches off square. I have to say as we were trying to figure out what we wanted an attack. My husband wisely ignored. My over are confident we can do this ourselves remark so we hired a skill builder who knew what to do and the finnish project turned out how beautiful okay so back to the dirt as my husband's spread the dirt around the base of the deck steps to bring the great up to code he ceded the area put straw on it and then we faithfully watered at twice a day. It really only took a few days before the first light hairs of grass began to poke through the straw aw now we have a beautiful patch of green grass around the time. We were doing all this. I came across the familiar passage in the gospel of john from chapter twelve south beginning at verse twenty. Four jesus says that a grain of wheat must fall to the ground and die in order to produce anything if it doesn't die. It just remains a grain of wheat now. According to the footnotes for this passage jesus is talking about himself and his need to die so that he will be accessible sessile to everyone but as i thought about this passage i realized that our grass seeds had died before our very is in the quiet darkness of that rich soil and had begun to grow it was as if one day they just appeared out of nowhere but common sense tells us that between the sun and watering. They got just what they needed to mature. If you take the example of jesus about the wheat meeting to die so that it can grow consider how that might also apply to to us we really cannot grow and mature his disciples nor produce anything unless we have been properly nourished in god's word and given time time to quietly evolve. Let's look closer. Jesus continues in this passage in the gospel of john saying that if we love our life we will lose it and if we hate our life in this world we will preserve it for eternal life taken at face value. This sounds a little harsh is jesus is telling us that we need to run around hating life. Well not exactly you have to look at the whole picture and consider his wheat example go to really understand it. A grain of wheat. Ill cared for is just a grain that exists without any purpose. It doesn't break break open or produce anything. Eh remains nothing more than what it is but a grain of wheat that has given itself up to what it is to become by soaking. Oh king up the sun and water and rich soil is like the disciple preserved for each her life. The grain that takes in those nutrients of life again like a disciple can grow beyond itself as we absorb god's word and accept his love. We become instruments for a greater purpose. We do not simply exist for ourselves in the here and now like the grass that poked up through the straw around our steps we a to impact the beauty of the world around us and add to it when we become who we are meant to become if we recognize that our life in this world is not what we have been ultimately made for but that we have been made for eternal life then we are not going to be in love with our life here imagining edging somehow that it is all there is similarly. If we are so content with our life here on earth we may not be able to imagine what is is to come which in turn looks a lot like loving our life here and losing eternal life as i close i realized that i didn't even get to talk about the importance of being planted in rich soil. If it weren't for planting our grass seed in rich soil it probably wouldn't have sprouted out of our clay rich ground so for the disciple everything needs to come together the soil the nutrients the care and attention and the willingness to allow lower selves to die in order to live translated we could say we need the church the sacraments our community and her brothers and sisters with whom we share this mission altogether. These are the ingredients of a healthy beautiful body of christ. May we all continue to grow together to make this world a beautiful place.

"Welcome to cassidy comments yes. I'm glad you can join me today for a discussion on the messy -ness of change back in two thousand three the catholic church decided it would make a change now. The first thing you need to know about the problem with that sentence is the word change. Nobody likes change especially people who have been doing something something the same way for an eternity so back in two thousand three there was the idea that we needed to be more unified now if you don't i don't know the catholic mass just believe me when i say that we have tons of unity during our mass from the responses says we give to the prayers that are offered. We are often in unison but apparently not enough so there was the idea that it would be good. If after we receive holy communion we remain standing now walk into any catholic mass today and you will see how well that worked out. It was a valiant valiant effort. I'll give you that and out of charity. We were offered flexibility which means today you will find people standing kneeling and sitting a true vision of unity if i do say so myself but there was a deeper reason for the proposed change range. Here's how the website at a ramos dot org put it maintaining a common posture while the whole assembly shares using communion expresses with our bodies the unity that communion creates among us so in other words our bodies. He's express our unity in the posture of standing after we go to communion flexibility was given to avoid rigidity and to help people feel more comfortable both good things who can argue with that besides there is a great deal more to be said about out the posture itself but i digress. Let's move away from the posture example of how messy it can get when we attempt to unify and let's talk talk about what's really necessary to achieve unity being unified as individuals who are part of a collective abbadi we can and should be directed towards what we should all be able to agree on the essentials such as respect for others a sound moral standard and so forth north but we get all tangled up and things get pretty messy so what's the bottom line no matter where we disagree we need to i'll be loving towards each other that should be the foundation of how we exist but today we are seeing growing discourse in our society that promotes the individual over the collective rather than working toward the common good which is beneficial to everyone. How can we find find any sense of unity if we are all doing whatever we want especially without charity. If we do not have a sense of being part of a unique the whole it will be hard to get to unity freedom then if misunderstood as everyone should do whatever they i feel like without concern for everyone. Else can slide into the hate filled rhetoric that we are seeing so much of today if it is just about me then that's a problem. Doesn't it seem like the ugliest element present in our sinful. Human nature is rearing its head today doesn't.

"Welcome to cassidy comments. I'm glad you are joining me today. I hope in today's episode you will find a little fun history history and maybe some inspiration as many of you know. I love quotes. If you do to then you will understand me when I say it's hard to find a place to put them where you can just grab them when you need them one place I have found put them. Recently is on my twitter feed. If you are a quote junkie you can follow me at Living Water J. N.. In the number seven years ago I found a quote on a poster that I liked and I put it on the wall above above my computer. It has never lost my attention. It's a popular quote attributed to Theodore Roosevelt and I think I bought it as inspiration for my kids when we were homeschooling it says do what you can with what you Oh have where you are. This quote has spoken to me many times over the years when I have been frustrated. Sometimes we have trouble figuring out how to do something. Sometimes we do not get the desired results. Were shooting for in sometimes it seems. Seems like we simply do not have what we need to get the job done whether it is money skill time energy or whatever while according to answers dot com which I have no idea if it is accurate read or not Roosevelt spoke these words when his men needed more supplies as they were about to begin the battle for San Juan Hill during the spanish-american war imagine my surprise when out of curiosity as I started digging for information about this quotes history I discovered that it has been misquoted over the years as I continued. My search I discovered that not only is my quote wrong. It should say do what you can with what you've got where you are instead of with what you have it isn't even Roosevelt's quote one online site by Sue Bruton and she backs it up with evidence is that Roosevelt was quoting some guy named Squire Bill widener who I think actually may have been quoting someone else but in checking about squire bill I found on find a grave dot Com who knew there was such a site that he was indeed a friend of Roosevelt's and was is in fact a millwright confederate soldier teacher Sunday School Superintendent Justice of the peace and spiritual adviser so apparently according to Sue Bruton Roosevelt was quoting his friend Squire Bill. She shows a text from Roosevelt's autobiography where he references his friend from Weidner's Valley Virginia and quotes what he calls a bit of homely philosophy quoted by Squire Bill widener Wow who knew that for so many years I have actually been inspired by a popular community figure from Virginia named Squire Bill. I'm beginning to think from learning about Squire bill that the inspirational words of this man man we're exemplified in his life. When I consider all the roles he played in his community? Now I know things were set up differently in the mid to late nineteenth century than they are today but going from soldier to Sunday School Superintendent to spiritual chill adviser says something of the man's broad base of talents okay so back to the quote. I still find squire bills. Do what you can with what you've got. Where you are very inspiring? It feels like at the heart of it. There is a call to humility and action. We have to acknowledge that we can't do it all but that doesn't mean we can't do anything and while we may not have all that we need ideally we start with what we do have and get moving to me. This quote yells do something there are no excuses. What is it that you have put on hold because your situation isn't ideal? What are you planning to learn or do some? Day The older I get the more I appreciate every day that I have in the greater. My desire grows to not waste one of them taking inventory of what you do have and start there. If you don't have a skill you need need. How might you develop it? If you don't have the resources you need who might be able to help you get them if you don't have motivation study motivational speakers and learn from them in and finally in humility recognize that we have a loving father who guides are steps and blesses our efforts so there really is no reason to wait to get moving in the end. I find it interesting that quote vote by a Virginian named Squire bill buried in a cemetery named at Rush Creek in nineteen twenty was used by President of the United States and found its way onto a poster that I used for inspiration when homeschooling my kids at the end of the century I'll leave you with the final quote that was attributed to Theodore Roosevelt in his autobiography of nineteen thirteen just above where he quote Squire Bill in Chapter Nine while talking thing about a life deliberately devoted to pleasure as an end Roosevelt said the greatest happiness is the happiness that comes as a byproduct of striving to do what must be done even though sorrow.
