Clean Language Only, Please!

Let me start by saying I don’t swear. I never have; I don’t believe in it. In spite of that, or maybe because of that, I have to inform you, my dear readers, by way of helping keep your mouths righteous, of a truly vile, nasty word. It bothers me that it can be used on TV, even in programs for kids. I think this is mainly because the average American doesn’t even realize how raunchy this word actually is. So please forgive me for using this word one time, just so you can know what it is, and thereby avoid using it yourself. The word? Continue reading

How Random is This???

Wow. Thanks to some of the cool WordPress features for bloggers, and found out something really random today.

I don’t know how or why, but apparently my blog is on the internet in languages other than English. Well, so all I really know for sure is it’s on the internet in at least one other language. I found it entertaining, and thought you might, as well. Here it is: http://translate.google.com.ua/translate?hl=ru&sl=en&u=https://dorean.wordpress.com/category/my-achievements/&sa=X&oi=translate&resnum=4&ct=result&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dmy%2Bachievements%26start%3D10%26hl%3Dru%26rlz%3D1T4GGLD_ru___UA204%26sa%3DN

A Picture is Worth…

As the end of the Mercy Seat event drew near, God had one more lesson for us: this one a visual lesson. There were only about 45 minutes left when a leader got on the microphone and urged everyone to really focus in for the remaining time. People who had been praying sitting down, or taking a break in the shade all stood to their feet and formed line after line of people in front of the Supreme Court building steps. There were about 300-400 people there at this point.

Brian and I were on the front row, standing within inches of the courthouse steps. (We weren’t allowed on the steps, since legally we were part of a “protest”.) All afternoon we had watched a steady stream of tourists work their way around our gathering and walk the steps of the courthouse, spending a few minutes at the top to enjoy the view, or maybe just the shade provided by the huge columns. By now, being late in the day and HOT, the crowds had dwindled to just an occasional couple or family. As I stood, trying hard to focus on praying, my attention was grabbed by Continue reading

Equal Justice Under Law

Equal Justice Under Law

“Equal Justice Under Law”. That’s the motto that is written on the header above the front door of the federal Supreme Court Building. At the recent “Mercy Seat” gathering in Washington, D.C. I found myself standing before this magnificent building staring at those noble words. As I prayed, I began to be uncomfortable when I read these words. I read them over and over, my discomfort growning. With a little self-examination, I realized why this motto made me so uncomfortable. Continue reading

The Mercy Seat 2008

On Saturday, April 26, Brian and I were blessed to join the Philadelphia chapter of Bound 4 Life for a road trip to Washington, D.C. to take part in an event called “The Mercy Seat”. It was a nationwide prayer event taking place at all 50 state supreme courts, as well as the national Supreme Court building. We are a couple hours from both our state’s capital and the nation’s capital, so we really could have gone to either. We chose to go to the US Supreme Court, since we have learned in recent years you never know what God has in mind for your future, so who knows if we’ll be this close next time there is an event in Washington, D.C.

Be that as it may, bright and early Saturday morning we climbed aboard a bus of total strangers to go stand before our national Supreme Court building. Continue reading
