Why is everything so confusing?
This morning I went to the pharmacy and picked up two prescriptions. My cost (following the insurance payment) was less than $5.00 for the two of them. Should I thank Joe Biden?
It used to be, three or four years ago, that prescriptions typically cost $20.00. Then, monthly prescriptions cost $10.00 under my plan and 90-day prescriptions cost $20.00.
Now, it is always a surprise, usually a pleasant one, when I see how much my medications cost. Just as I don’t question why the sun seems to rise in the east and set in the west, I accept this new reality with joy and thanksgiving.
At the same time, I am confident in my belief that the USA started the war in Ukraine and I expect it will expand to the extent that the WEF believes is acceptable.
Is America evil? Just because my personal life is one of comfort, I mustn’t allow myself to become complacent and believe that our ship of state is not taking on water and will soon sink.
It puts me in a quandary and I am torn with cognitive dissonance.
Nevertheless, the words of the world’s smartest man still ring true:
“The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God and keep his commandments; for that is the whole duty of everyone.” Ecclesiastes 12:13 (NRSV)
We want to make ourselves the center of the universe, but, in fact, we are all tiny slivers, shavings from the Creation that YHWN is continuing to build.
I am happy that I am not required to be consistent, logical, defiant, or PC.
I do not have to study the news or wring my hands about anything that is beyond my control. And, in fact, everything is out of my control.
Dance and Be Happy.
The End is coming and it’s going to be great.
