"When you come to the edge of all that you know, you must believe one of two things: there will be earth upon which to stand, or you will be given wings to fly." author unknown
It's that time of the year....

Justice Samuel Alito, I applaud you!
My heart was heavy yesterday when I learned of the outcome of a Supreme Court case, a consideration of protests at military funerals. The Court voted with an 8 – 1 decision which they said falls squarely on the First Amendment. This means that anti-gay funeral protests will continue to be allowed. This sickens me. Our brave men and women in the military are fighting and dying on foreign soil to protect countries that don’t even want us there. Fighting for us here at home, and yes to protect our freedom of speech, however I, for the life of, me can’t understand how the first amendment can allow protestors to picket at the funeral of a fallen soldier. The Westboro Baptist Church evidently (my opinion) doesn’t have a Christian among their members! Surely God is looking down on these protestors and shaking His head in sorrow.
I am just home from a fasting lab which required 4 tubes of blood. My niece went with me and we went to Bob Evans afterward for breakfast. Next Thursday is my doctor appointment for the results. Not looking forward to that.
I need to go out and run some errands so I will catch you all later. Stay safe and be happy!!
