HOW? distressing thoughts to me

I BELIEVE I should be governed by
the golden rule:
“do unto others as you would
have them do unto you”

HOW CAN I interact with friends and family who:
blindly follow leaders who are NOT governed by the golden rule and
who chastise me when I point out flaws in reasoning
or lack of valid information and
basically make me out to be the “bad guy”

HOW DID we get to the point:
that supermarket tabloids who have lost lawsuits because they were guilty of manipulating either photos and/or making up headlines are now touted as valid news sources

WHY AM I considered so gullible:
that I am supposed to repeat what I am told without really
examining the obvious marketing slogans motivated by
“loyalty” to a man only – no need to use the brain?

WHY IS BLINDNESS a requirement:
for membership in “what’s acceptable” in our world today and loyalty
is described as blindly following and
strongly coming against any who do not agree

the right way to deal with dissent with anyone who
disagrees including friends, family, and strangers

About Jeanne

a work in progress . . . God's grace has brought me through many traumas of varying intensities and I am alive today (both physically & spiritually) because of Him and His work: "For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus"-Philippians 1:6. My childhood was spent living in many places in the United States due to my family's music or ministry—The Hicks Family, made up of Olan & Barbara Hicks, my younger brothers, Clint & Chuck & me, sang in different combos (put out an album), does so no longer professionally . . . but, visit a family gathering in Searcy & you're bound to hear some foot-tapping sounds (or catch my dad & mom on the road)! I believe that every moment of each life path (the good & what I perceive as the bad) God works together for my good as His child whether I understand it or not. MUSIC and MINISTRY are still primary aspects of the path God has me walking—so exciting! Words that have encouraged me since 1980: ". . . giving them a garland instead of ashes,The oil of gladness instead of mourning,The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting So they will be called oaks of righteousness,The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified." Isaiah 61:3
