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.

House Dems To Strike ‘So Help Me God’ From Oath
The party of evil strikes again.
Democrat-controlled House of Representatives is moving to eliminate the God reference from the oath administered to witnesses testifying before the panel, as part of a new rules package expected to be approved this week, according to a draft obtained exclusively by Fox News.
The draft reveals that the House Committee on Natural Resources would ask witnesses to recite only, “Do you solemnly swear or affirm, under penalty of law, that the testimony that you are about to give is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?”
The rules proposal places the words “so help you God” in red brackets, indicating they are slated to be cut. The words “under penalty of law” are in red text, indicating that Democrats propose to add that phrasing to the oath.
The draft rules also remove the phrase “his or her” throughout the document, changing those two pronouns to “their.” The rules additionally modify all references to the committee’s “Chairman” to instead refer only to the committee’s “Chair.”
Other rules changes relate to expanding the committee’s authority over natural gas in Alaska and fossil-fuel resources.
While many federal oaths include the phrase “so help me God,” some — most notably the presidential oath of office — do not.
The full committee is set to vote on the new language this week, and the rules would take effect immediately if adopted. Other committees were still in the process of finalizing their rules on Monday.
“It is incredible, but not surprising, that the Democrats would try to remove God from committee proceedings in one of their first acts in the majority,” House Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., told Fox News. “They really have become the party of Karl Marx.”
The proposed change has not been the first time wicked Democrats have sought to strike references to God in official party documents. In 2012, the floor of the Democratic National Convention erupted over a sudden move to restore to the platform a reference to God and recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital — after heavy criticism from Republicans for initially omitting them. Democrats, though, were hardly in agreement over the reversal.

“That they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” ? First they take away the Creator and then they take away the Rights.
The Democrats have proven time and time again they are a godless lot. Democrats only use God and the Bible when they believe it wins them votes. These people will remove all good things from America. I mean..we are talking a party that believes in ripping the unborn apart.
The left’s religion is government. They hate all that is good and will do everything in their power to remove that good.
So help me Satan is more up their alley.

Miss USA Warns: Donald Trump Is NOT Who You Think He Is
This is an oldie, but goodie and has never been more relevant than today and will have liberals triggered into oblivion. I’m sure some will even call in sick to work over it. (Liberal Fact checkers: that’s called opinionated humor, please don’t try to fact check that statement like you always do)
The narrative that liberals were pushing throughout the 2016 elections was that Donald Trump was a sexxist womaizer whoo preyed on women and could not be trusted to hold the Presidency of the United States.
Let’s just forget and throw out the notion that Bill Clinton was already President, the king of womanizing himself.
Now here we have, easily one of the most beautiful women in the world, a former Miss USA. She’s just risked everything to come forward to tell her story and give a inside perspective of who Donald Trump really is.
She’s telling her story about how Trump treats very vulnerable young women.
WE ARE FUNDING THE WALL with GO FUND ME- CLICK BELOW!
Her name is Tara Conner, and when she won in the Miss USA pageant 2006, her misfortune took a turn for the worse when judges discovered she had previously been a cocaine addict.
She was immediately disqualified as the winner.
However, in 2006, Trump was the owner of the Miss USA pageant and heard the controversial backstory. He was moved by her strength and story to overcome addiction to become Miss USA and for this he announced that she would still hold the crown, provided she enter rehab for the addiction.
Donald Trump showed common sense and compassion to a young vulnerable woman who had risen from the dust to become the top in America; sound familiar? 10 year later President Trump would do the same thing, against all odds, he rose to the top to become our president.
Tara Conner made one statement that rings true, the act of compassion that trump showed her, she stated Trump “made me great again.”
USA Today reported connors statement:
I became famous as “Mess USA” when my boss — now the president of the United States — tossed me into rehab after I tested positive for cocaine. Rather than strip me of my crown or add to the negative press with a humiliation campaign, Donald Trump surprised me, and shocked the world, when he held a news conference and declared: “Tara is going to be given a second chance.”
It was 10 years ago that I got out of treatment, and I thank him for my 10 years of recovery. I will always be profoundly grateful. He saved my life and, essentially, made me great again.
My life was the perfect storm for addiction. My uncle molested me when I was 3. When I was 14, my parents’ rocky relationship ended in divorce and my grandfather, my protector who gave me unconditional love when no one else would, died.
Like mine, 90% of all substance use disorders begin before age 18. Our president understands firsthand the life-long damage of addiction and how substance use at a young age creates a destructive cycle into an adulthood of suffering and isolation. He has often courageously spoken publicly about how his brother Freddy lost his battle with alcoholism and died in 1981.
Now that is the REAL Donald Trump, don’t believe the lies that liberals try to paint because they hate the President.
