For God and Country

For God and Country.

For God and Country

             As Citizens of a Democratic-Republic it is best that we live our lives ” For God and Country”. As citizens, service is our daily responsibility, for our government is a reflection of how well we meet that responsibility. As members of our respective Churches/Religion, our service is purely one of an individualistic and personal nature. It is how we apply our moral values, ideas, and principles in our daily lives that determines the usefulness of our service. The problem comes, as often as it dose, when the first (  citizenship) clashes with the second (individualism). 

As an individual, my moral foundation is based or at least greatly influenced by the doctrines of the Catholic Faith. As a citizen, although my moral foundation greatly influences the way I serve my country. I must, at times. adhere to one of our most fundemental rules of self-government. majority rules. Which means I must consider and respect the views or perspectives of my fellow citizens. Which will end up, as often as it dose, requiring us to apply a compromise for the common good, that is if we desire our country to return it’s original direction . But where it may appear that I have compromise, my personal morals, ideas and principles for the sake of the common good.  I want to make it clear, that the compromise I make for the common good. Dose not in any way compromises my morals, ideas, or principles, in any way, not on an individual level!                                                                                                                                                                                            Further we must not allow that we live in a society where appearances, illusions, and half truths are the rule and we all know how deceptive they can be. We must not allow what appears to be reality dictate our thinking or our actions, for then we most likely our thinking and actions on a deception, rather than reality. We must use our God given talents to search out facts, think for ourselves, and make our own decisions. As citizens, for us to meet our responsibility to our country, we must do so as individuals, we must not allow ourselves to be subjugated to the group mentality ( conservative, liberal, democrat, or republican ) allowing the group do our thinking, speaking, or  allowing it to dictate our actions. For if we do, then our thinking, speaking, or actions are based on the illusions that control our thoughts, words, or actions and will prove to be anti-productive if not destructive to our political and governing processes, We must allow our individual morality, our ideas, and our principles influence our political interest and involvement, For it is the only honest way we can add to the accumulations of ideas and principles so that we can create the compromise for the common good, that is if we want to renew and revitalize our nation and return to a nation, that is ruled by the majority. And once again become a nation of the people, for the people, and by the people. 

This nation is of very little use, if the majority of citizens do not become interested and involved in, both our political and governing processes. Therefore, as citizens. we must accept and apply our responsibility to serve our country, Even though I understand and sympathize with those who have given up hope on our nation and chosen the apathetic course, this is unproductive, I fear, that without their interest and involvement we will see the self-destruction of our nation. For as I have said before our nation is the reflection of how we, as citizens accept and embrace our responsibility to serve our country. For if it is our contention that our nation, is beyond hope then we have no one to blame, but ourselves for the condition that our country is in. As it is, the very renewal, revitalization, if not it’s very salvation rest in our hands, as individual citizens.

The Lady with the Sweet Smile # 13

Just give me a smile

 

I know that there are those

 who have told you

that they would buy you

the moon and stars

for you to ware as a necklace

But all I can give you

so is country walks in the spring

someone to count the stars with

on warm summer nights

and a heart that will

keep you warm on winter nights

 

but for now

just give me a smile

so my heart

will beat another day

 

I know that there are those

who will take you dancing

at the top of the mark

with the ball room lighting

and a band to match

but all I can offer you

is my hand to share a dance

under the stars and a full moon

on some sandy beach somewhere

with music being played on a CD

it be like dancing on a cloud

 

but for now

just give me a smile

so my heart

will beat for another day

 

for i know there are those

who try to buy your love

with jewels and gems

and other fancy things

no more then a bigger show

then is love for the heart

but what my heart offers you

is a love the will be forever and a day

a promise that I’ll be there

each and every time you call

in body or in spirit

and a heart that will

love, adore, and care for you

each day and every night

 

but for now

just give me a smile

so my heart

will be for another day

 

to this world

what i offer is very little

but if I just live

off the maybe’s

maybe today

i’ll feel the warmth of your embrace

just maybe tonight

i will know the sweetness

of your kiss

and just maybe

these hopes and prayers

will one day be true.

 

but for now

just give me a smile

so my heart

will beat for another day

The Lady with sweet Smile # 12

For this is Love

 

For each morn as I awake

there is a wonder

a beauty that fills

each new day

for the shadow of her smile

lingers in my heart and mind

for this is love.

 

for each day seems brighter

even when storm clouds gather

 the song of the birds in the trees

seems to be sweeter then before

for the shadow of her smile

lingers in my heart and mind

for this is love.

 

For the cross that I bare

seems lighter every time she’s around

and the midday sun

reminds me of the warmth of her smile

for every night as the stars dance in the sky

sure they remind me of her eyes

lingers in my heart and mind

for this is love.

 

For it be social ignorance

that keeps these two hearts

for beating as one

but my heart will be contented

for she is my muse

my sweet inspiration

for my heart be-contented

with hope that just maybe…

for the shadow of her smile

lingers in my heart and mind

for this love.
