If there is more apparent a view

to the dichotomy of man’s character…

(influenced by God or not)…

it should be taken to heart when

seen in the totality of man’s treatment

of another, and where we should

place the emphasis of this under-

standing to bear on our own views!

Wrong is WRONG… from man’s perspective but from God’s perspective is care for His own and those that call themselves His (by virtue of the truth they know and their behavior toward others). If the monotheistic God is one God… why did we see the dipolar scene on the shores of Tripoli– one believing in the Hebrew God (persecuted and beheaded) and the other… you know? Can we not see Egypt and Jordan knowing the difference… and if you know the difference (Iran) set Saeed Abedini free!

Suffering… suffering what?

To suffer a stuffed shirted bore…

a boring lecture less than impassioned…

an experience where lives are affected

and effecting the viewpoint or outlook

of orphans and widows…

to rise above the condition people may

find themselves in where we do relate to them…

feel for them… even to know what they need

before they’d ask you, this is what it feels like…

to suffer for people suffering, and to place your

own feet on the ground they understand…

this is where the heart of any of humanities

religions is either true to character or just

lip service… christians stood up for these

people groups, historically and presently,

and gave us: orphanages, hospitalers,

charitable groups and human compassion…

to see what is needed is the human in humanity,

and that anything short of mercy is inhuman.

We has reached the apex of the apogee of peacefulness and its vision for humanity. We have more people referring to: the crusades, slavery and peace… but are unwilling to take off ‘the rose colored glasses of their own bias’. Their intentions are made evident from this error… akin to Balaam’s error… by omission or indifference to facts either known or disregarded. This is nothing more than politicizing personal opinion or beliefs held… akin to a personal theocracy– the self worth of worthlessness… where selfish are the motives displayed and not altruistic in nature. See them for what they are… they will never be what you’ll expect them to be.

“When the haystack surrounds the needle… Kayla Mueller”©


There was no great mystery to Kayla…

she had a larger heart than most,

she saw people in their truest need

and for this she gave up the ghost,

her pride took a backseat to the needs

she strived to reach out and meet…

to be found free in her own captivity,

this Pauline in Spirit, so complete,

a young woman from Prescott, Arizona,

and to her home State’s loss so grave,

this was one of our own here, like Tillman,

special was her ability to touch and save…

all Arizona is proud of her, she will be

missed here… a free spirit now lost,

to take upon liberty’s saddle but empty

boots… the horse to show us the cost,

never will we soon forget… we will

always remember her as but a needle,

a tool of God’s love for all humanity…

sewing blankets of warmth to cuddle.

If there was anything that strikes me about Kayla Mueller it was the depth of her compassion… the ‘milk of human kindness’ she had encompassed to share of her life for those in dire need of ‘freedom, justice and peace.’ Kayla was a U.S. aid worker in Syria, working with Syrian refugees, when she disappeared Aug. 4th, 2013. It is still unclear how Kayla was given as a gift to one of the ISIL members [proof lives are still impacted by slavery (by Moslems) and raising further concerns]. It is also unclear as to the given circumstances, and claims by ISIL, surrounding Kayla’s death being attributed to the Jordanian airstrikes in Raqqa, Syria.
