Sometimes I visit military.com or Stars and Stripes to read articles of interest to the military and their families. I always encounter what I believe to be Veterans who have become disillusioned. They have just seen and lived too many things. Some things a man or woman should never behold, but they do, because in our world evil has been loose a long time. It began when Cain slew Able. Well actually it began with that fruit... and when her hand first touched it after she determined that it was beautiful, and probably tasty, and God didn't know what He was talking about.
Before I begin my little tale, I watched a thunder storm come up across the field last night. It settled my heart. My old Soldier is always under fire, because just like me, he still believes in honorable service, and as always has been the case, that brings stuff down on him. My heart is always troubled when he is standing in a gap somewhere. So before, or after you read this blog post enjoy the pictures of the storm, and know He is still on the throne, His promises are still the same, and true. I am so blessed, we all are in this country. Never forget, the blessings of liberty are ours because there are those who serve. They are the best among us for the most part. We truly live in the land of the free, because of the brave. Here are some of the words I shared with a Veteran.
As the storm first approached it was still day light, but then the moon came out. I captured the lightning as well.
My Comment: Our world is coming apart at the seams. In all the thousands of years we have been here, we haven't come one bit closer to humanity solving
the problems perpetrated by the violence and evil. I am sure everyone here is familiar with the quote of our being able to sleep peacefully at night because of men being willing to commit violence in order to protect society from the self consumed thugs of the world who love and serve violence and evil. Those who do so pay such a price, so do their families, and they are never valued as they should be by the rest of us. Just ask anyone who has needed something from the VA recently.

My Comment: My opinion that the world is coming apart at the seams is based in my age. I am old, I've seen a great deal. In my opinion, the world is coming apart at the seams. I won't go through all the places in the world where this is happening, or talk of the economy of China or Europe, ISIS, Russia, South Africa, even a simple google search will provide endless reliable sources. However, like you I don't put much stock in main stream media, I like Stratfor, and other intelligence gathering agencies which I trust, as does the government, (which really isn't a recommendation either.) I grew up and raised my family in a different world than I know today. My oldest will be 41 in November. As I say, it is just my opinion.
