Love stories today are elaborate. There seems to be a requirement that people make grand gestures and promises of everlasting happiness. And then there’s the proposal; if it doesn’t include a flash mob and at least 5,000 balloons, you might as well not even tell the story, because it just won’t get enough Facebook likes. As we all know, a whole lot of these relationships are just as shallow as the gestures, and many don’t pan out.
It wasn’t always that way though; there was a time when people committed to one another and realized that true love was a choice. The choice you make every time your significant other angers you, the choice when there is a lot more poorer than there is richer and a lot more sickness than health. It looks like commitment and feels like hard work, but the payoff is something that those who experience will always tell you is worth it.
That is the love that was displayed by one loving East Texas husband named Paul, when the love of his life, Martha, was fighting a long, hard battle with dementia. If you’re not familiar with the illness, it’s a creeping degeneration that causes those affected to forget everyone they once knew and loved, until they are often scared and confused.
Paul and Martha’s beautiful love story was put on social media after Martha’s passing so that the rest of the world could be reminded of what real love looks like:
In my hometown, this gentleman went and sat every day with his wife, who suffered from dementia. She passed away last July.
Paul’s words about his wife, Martha:
‘We kind of grew up together because our families went to the same church, but I didn’t really start talking to her until I was in the Navy. We started writing each other when I was stationed at Pearl Harbor. One day, a buddy of mine and I were walking around, and we came across a woman who was selling engagement ring sets. Well, I had no interest and neither did my buddy because, you know, we had no plans to get married anytime soon; but that woman talked us into looking at the rings, and we ended up buying a set. I held onto mine for a long time while Martha and I kept writing each other; until one day, I just decided to mail the ring to her. A few days later, I called her up and asked her if she got anything in the mail from me; and well, the rest is history. It was 57 years, last December. I came to sit with her every day and wave at the cars passing by. We’ve had a lot of adventures together—and she loved me through it all.’ “

"In my hometown, this gentleman went and sat everyday with his wife, who suffered from dementia. She passed away last…
This couple showed the world the kind of commitment that used to be standard but is now far too seldom seen now. Everyone seems so caught up in chasing their own happiness, that they miss the greatest source of happiness and fulfillment; a life filled with love, commitment found in serving one another.
Some of the comments on the Facebook post showed just how much people will miss Martha, and how much they appreciate all her husband did for her:
“That’s old school married. I’d love to see it make a comeback in today’s throw away society.”
“We loved seeing them together. Broke our heart when we drove by and they weren’t there. We knew then she had passed.”
“Yeap it’s old school, I meet my mate while he was in the Marines [sic]. From the day we meet it’s was only 9 days till we got married. Thirty days later he shipped out to Vietnam for 15 months. We have been married 52 1/2 years, we are still best friends.”
“That’s the way it’s supposed to be. Love without a question. Love without needing a response. God’s Will.”
May each and every one of experience this kind of unconditional Christlike love at some point in our lives, and may we make it our mission to show it to others.
Thank you, Paul and Martha, for your superb example of what true love is.

Former Miss Iraq: Ilhan Omar Trying To Push Sharia Law On America
This is certainly refreshing. A former Miss Iraq is speaking up against Ilhan Omar and her push for Sharia law in America. This beauty queen was forced to flee her native country after posting a selfie of herself and Miss Israel. She tore into Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) over it and she adamantly says that the congresswoman does not represent her as a Muslim.
“Ilhan Omar does not represent me as a Muslim — does not represent millions of Muslims in the Middle East,” Sarah Idan, who lives in the U.S. told “The Sara Carter Show.” “You know like in Arab countries we call her the Muslim Brotherhood,” she added. “They are extremist Muslims, Sunni Muslims, who are now working together with Iran against all the Arab countries,” she said. “They’re working now with Hezbollah, with Turkey, with all that. You know the thing is about this organization, they are extremist Muslims, they’re Jihadis, and they have this ideology that they want to control the world.”
I really like this woman… she speaks the unvarnished truth and is absolutely fearless. Women like Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib, Idan said, exploit progressive sentiments. “They feed on the sympathy of people,” Idan added. Yes, and Omar is part of the communist Farmer-Labor Party in MN. So, she pushes not only Marxism but elitist Sharia law as well.
“Her remarks came in the wake of a Twitter battle in which Idan accused Omar of trying to “export” the same ideology that she fled from in the Middle East. “First was the Middle East, then Europe & now the USA. I fled from the same ideology you’re trying to export here,” she said.
“In an interview with i24 News, Idan expanded on the accusation, saying, “It’s an ideology of trying to push Islam to make it the ruling system of the country.”
“She continued by saying that Omar angered a lot of Muslims in the U.S. because she always says, “I speak for every Muslim in this country.”
“She made a lot of us angry — moderate Muslims who escaped Sharia, who are trying to push for moderate Islam and a reform of Islam,” Idan said.
Ilhan Omar is always promoting an Islamist agenda while claiming to speak for all the Muslims in America, including the moderates who oppose Sharia, says Former Miss Iraq Sarai Idan.📺 More i24ne.ws/VZC830n1FWe

“In an earlier tweet, Idan described the Minnesota Representative’s agenda as “anti-American.”
“Seriously @IlhanMN this is your intellectual come back?” she asked. “I said as a MUSLIM! I don’t stand for your anti-American, anti-Semitic, Muslim Brotherhood agenda using this democracy to further YOUR & YOUR FRIENDS Islamic socialism goals of dividing & weakening our country.”
“The former Miss Universe contestant, who grew up in Iraq under the regime of Saddam Hussein, fled the country after receiving threats that her Iraqi citizenship would be withdrawn because she posted a selfie with Miss Israel.”
Two years ago, Idan’s family left Iraq after she received backlash over modeling in a bikini and posting photos taken with Miss Israel Adar Gandelsman on social media.
The Iraqi government threatened to cancel her citizenship over the “selfie.” In addition, Idan and her family received a number of death threats, some allegedly from Hamas, as well as from the Iraqi and conservative Muslim communities abroad.
“Two years ago, I represented Iraq at Miss Universe. I posted a photo with Miss Israel on social media. I was told to remove it and forced to denounce Israeli police,” she said in a speech at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in June. “I received death threats. Since then I can no longer return to my homeland. Why did the Iraqi government fail to condemn the threats, or allow my freedom of speech?”

Idan equated Omar’s support for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a Muslim advocacy group that critics say has ties to terrorist organizations Hamas and Hezbollah, to those terrorists themselves. Good for her and spot on.
I don’t agree with the Islamic religion. It is a warrior religion and is flawed in my viewpoint… but I could exist with a reformed Islam as this woman is condoning.
Seriously @IlhanMN this is your intellectual come back?
I said as a MUSLIM! I dont stand for your anti-American, anti-Semitic, Muslim Brotherhood agenda using this democracy to further YOUR & YOUR FRIENDS Islamic socialism goals of dividing & weakening our country. @SaraCarterDC https://t.co/H4OYrdM9Y6 pic.twitter.com/7CuYDy44DF

Idan was born and raised in Baghdad and taught herself English at age 13 by listening to western music. After the U.S.-led Iraq invasion in 2003, she moved to Syria. She returned to Iraq and worked as a translator for the U.S. military before emigrating to America. She describes herself as a secular Muslim.
She was crowned Miss Iraq in America in 2016 and Miss Universe Iraq the following year. She represented Iraq at the Miss Universe 2017 pageant in Las Vegas.
It’s clear that @IlhanMN will dismiss your voice and hardships as a Muslim immigrant of color simply if you don’t live in Minnesota #MN05 but she has repeatedly represented the Muslim Brotherhood and their affiliates @CAIRNational 🤷🏽♀️https://t.co/DO11ExyEG8

Contrast that with Omar’s actions:
“The Minnesota congresswomen headlined a CAIR event this spring in which stated: “CAIR was founded after 9/11, because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”
“Critics blasted the congresswoman for downplaying 9/11 as just “something” with the president tweeting out a video of Omar’s comments juxtaposed between 9/11 imagery.
“The 37-year-old freshman congresswoman also has a long history of anti-Semitic comments including calling Israel “evil,” suggested the American Israel Public Affairs Committee pays off politicians to be pro-Israel, and accused pro-Israel Jews of having duel loyalties.
“Omar apologized for the first two statements calling them “anti-Semitic” but has since said critics use charges of anti-Semitism to silence her.”
The only reason that Omar is in office is that a bunch of Somalian Muslims were relocated to the U.S. and there is a pocket of them in her district. It was just enough to get her elected so she could spout hatred against Israel and push Sharia law while causing as much chaos for Americans in general as possible. After all, they are nothing but infidels to her.
As Idan has stated: “Freedom to express one’s views is not confined to the district in which one lives.”

Pope Francis Sends $500,000 To Support Migrant Caravans Trying To Enter U.S. Illegally
Pope Francis gave half a million dollars to migrant caravans from Central America who are using our southern border as a crossing point to invade the United States. The Vatican says it is to help migrants in Mexico who are trying to reach the United States, according to a report Saturday from Vatican News. Under the cover of charity, the Red Pope is pushing open borders and globalism.
“Pope Francis has donated 500,000 dollars to assist migrants in Mexico. The funds, from the Peter’s Pence collections, will be distributed among 27 projects promoted by sixteen Mexican dioceses and religious congregations, which requested assistance in continuing to provide food, lodging, and basic necessities to the migrants,” the report stated.
Peter’s Pence is a large collection of funds at the Pope’s disposal “to provide emergency assistance to those in need because of natural disaster, war, oppression, and disease.” Obviously, the fund is for much more than that and is being used as a political slush fund.
The report goes on to note that in recent months, “thousands of migrants have arrived in Mexico, having traveled more than 4,000 kilometers on foot and with makeshift vehicles from Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala.”
“Men and women, often with young children, flee poverty and violence, hoping for a better future in the United States. However, the US border remains closed to them,” the article emphasizes. These illegal immigrants flaunt our immigration laws as well as commit crimes. They are not victims… more accurately, they are insurgents.
Interior Secretary Olga Sánchez said earlier this week that around 300,000 migrants traveled through Mexico en route to the United States in the first three months of this year.
“The money is intended “to assist the more than 75,000 people who arrived in Mexico in 2018 in six migrant caravans,” the article states. These people “were stranded, unable to enter the United States, without a home or livelihood” and therefore the Catholic Church has hosted “thousands of them in hotels within the dioceses or religious congregations, providing basic necessities, from housing to clothing.”
“The article laments declining media attention on the migrant caravans, which has reportedly resulted in decreased government and private financial aid to migrants.
“According to Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández, some of the migrant caravans marching toward the U.S.-Mexico border were organized by Honduran “leftist groups” and “financed by Venezuela” in order to challenge U.S. sovereignty.
“For his part, Guatemalan head of intelligence Mario Duarte said this past February that the caravans heading toward the border are “well-planned” and “well-organized” by those wanting to “weaponize those in need.”
“This was not a spontaneous event. It was well-planned. It was well-organized,” Duarte said, adding that different intelligence, law enforcement, and military agencies found evidence that last October’s caravan from Honduras to the U.S. was not a grass-roots initiative but had been organized in advance.
“Pope Francis has made support for immigration a defining theme of his pontificate and has urged nations to be more welcoming toward migrants.
“Earlier this month, the pope said that migrants bring with them the wealth of a multicultural and multi-ethnic world, thereby enriching their host nations.
“Let us thank God for a multi-ethnic and multicultural society,” the pope told students and faculty of the San Carlo school of Milan who came to see him in the Vatican, “because dialogue among cultures, persons, and ethnicities is richness.”
“We must not be afraid of the water of life, of this multiethnicity, of this multiculturalism,” Francis said, “and here I touch on a sore topic: don’t be afraid of migrants.”
“Migrants are those who always bring us riches. Europe itself was made by migrants! The barbarians, the Celts… all these came from the north and brought their cultures with them. Europe grew in this way, with the contrast of cultures,” he said.
“On March 31, Francis attacked U.S. President Donald Trump over his proposed border wall. Asked by a reporter what he thought of Trump’s wall, the pope warned that “builders of walls, whether they are of razor-wire or brick, will become prisoners of the walls they build. That’s history.”
“We need bridges and “we feel pain when we see people who prefer to build walls,” he said.”
Pope Francis is a stone cold Marxist who is meddling in affairs that are none of his business. It verges on being an act of war in my book.
He’s helping communists and our enemies invade this country. Pope Francis believes in open borders and has attacked American policies that promote autonomy. He does not recognize the sovereignty of the US and is actively working against our leadership.
This is yet one more reason the wall should be built. President Trump should shut down the border until we can secure it period. #WeBuildTheWall
