HE LIFTS US UP: The Obedience of Mary

Originally posted on ChristianBlessings:

Obedience…
it’s my thought for the day.
The obedience of Mary…
how many would have that today?

To hear from God…
with a specific instruction.
Knowing in man’s eyes…
it would be character destruction.

To be visited by an angel…
with a reply, “Thy Will be done.”
Knowing the penalties of that day…
possible stoned or at least shunned.

And how about her family…
how realistic did they believe.
To know their child was pregnant…
claiming miraculously conceived.

Man Charged For Urinating on Modell’s Grave

Originally posted on CBS DC:

BALTIMORE — Baltimore County authorities say they will charge a man with disorderly conduct in a cemetery for allegedly urinating on the gravesite of former Baltimore Ravens owner Art Modell.

The man, who has so far been identified only as a Cleveland Browns fan, could face up to two years in jail and a $500 fine. He posted a video of the incident to YouTube this month.

Modell and his wife, Patricia, are buried at Druid Ridge Cemetery in Baltimore.

Baltimore County State’s Attorney Scott Shellenberger said in a news release that he hopes the case will be a deterrent.

Shellenberger says the man will not be identified until charges are filed and served.

The Ravens and David Modell, Art Modell’s son, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The Veil Drops: Rep. Luis Gutierrez Seeks Amnesty For Illegals To Punish Americans

Immigration

Democrats Admit Amnesty Is For Political Purposes 

Politics: Give us your poor, your tired, your future Democrats waiting to be registered. That’s what some in the party are saying as they urge the president to pursue immigration goals even if it hurts in the ’14 midterms.

“They are quite willing to use children to exploit the inherent compassion of the American people if it means ensuring the political future of the Democratic Party.”

In other words, damn the political torpedoes and full speed ahead in the fundamental demographic and political transformation of America.

Unprecedented California Drought Restrictions Go Into Effect

Originally posted on TIME:

California implemented emergency water-conservation measures today as it struggles to cope with an ongoing drought that has sapped reservoirs and parched farms across the state.

The new rules — the first statewide curbs on water use since the current drought began nearly three years ago — can lead to fines of up to $500 per day for using a hose to clean a sidewalk, running ornamental fountains that do not recirculate water and other wasteful behaviors. The regulations will be in effect for 270 days, unless they are repealed earlier.

Officials have said they don’t expect to issue too many tickets. Instead, they hope the rules will promote conservation by making it clear how serious the drought in California has become.

“We were hoping for more voluntary conservation, and that’s the bottom line,” Felicia Marcus, chair of the State Water Resources Board, told TIME when the body voted to approve

Just outside of Clint is the proposed site where a New York-based company has plans to build a 3,500-bed shelter to house children crossing the border illegally.

CLINT — Authorities are considering a bid to build a shelter in West Texas that would be the largest in the U.S. to hold unaccompanied children who enter the country illegally.

A number of sites in Texas and elsewhere are being considered as detention facilities for many of the more than 57,000 unaccompanied children who have entered the U.S. since October.

But with 3,500 beds, the proposed Abraham Lincoln Transitional Lodge southeast of El Paso would be far larger than other centers. A temporary processing facility in McAllen holds about 1,000 children.

July 29, 1974, Mama Cass Elliot known best from The Mamas & The Papas but in 1974, at the height of her solo career, died in her sleep from a heart attack at the age of 32. There was never any direct evidence to confirm the “choked on a ham sandwich” urban legend; more likely is that her heart attack caused by a recent dramatic weight loss and demanding touring schedule.

Officers showed up at a Bradford Street in East New York home at around 7:30 p.m. Saturday, where they spotted Miller’s husband, Moses, grilling on a public sidewalk before asking him to relocate to the back yard, cops said.

The man refused to hand over his ID and began to walk away before cops tried to grab him and place him under arrest, cops said.

That’s when Rosan and her brother, John Miller, started slapping at police preventing them from making the…
