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

WHEN DID HARSH WORDS become:
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
