I, like many, had my doubts when I went to vote last November.  I wasn’t convinced in my heart of hearts that my decision to vote for Donald Trump was the sagest idea I ever had.  He was brash, earthy, condescending and rude.  However his opponent was not an option.

For the past ten months I’ve seen the making of a president.  What seemed to many to be an impossible choice, has developed into a strong leader, a man who loves America, an astute businessman who knows how to make a deal and one who takes his job seriously.

If you’ve been paying close attention to this man, you can’t help notice a change in his demeanor.  His last two speeches – to the Air Force on their 70th anniversary and to the United Nations yesterday – resounded with strength, passion, love of country, willingness to stand up for it and true leadership.  This has been lacking the presidential office for some time.

Usually you can tell by a person’s body language if they’re telling the truth or simply putting on an act.  President Trump has either had some superior training in the past few month or his true self is surfacing.    So far, during his short presidency, he’s had to deal with a media that seems bent on his destruction – a Republican party that’s been too wishy washy to defend him – a Democrat party that refuses to accept the results of the last election – two horrific hurricanes that ravaged the Southern edge of our country – a man who plays with weapons of mass directions as if they were toys – a radical group of Islamic dissidents who wish to eliminate us – allies who have lost faith in the strength of America.  He hasn’t even completed one year!

In that time, he’s been successful in diverting the press.  His tweets may seem absurd at times, but the press is having a field day with them, while he gets his work done.  He’s gotten more people back to work.  The stock market is at an all time high.  He’s fighting for the American people and their safety.  He is talking to our military like a true commander in chief.  He continues to put new ideas out there and is willing to butt heads with his opponents.

Maybe it’s a time we start taking this guy seriously!


As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

    Good mornin Kathy.
    Your first paragraph described my voting to a tee, just as you felt about your rationale in voting.

    And I don’t know anything about the characteristics of Trump’s recent attitude, because I’ve largely quit following news for the most part. (Although I used to be a fox news/conservative junky).

    But here’s my thing…
    Maybe he’s doing great, I don’t know…

    But the man ran as a Christian, conspicuously carrying a bible around during the election season.

    Has anyone seen him carrying that bible around after the election?

    Is he publicly and specifically claiming the name of Christ Who he claimed to be a part of when he was seeking votes?

    I’m not saying he hasn’t. I honestly don’t know if he has or hasn’t.
    Someone please tell me that he’s openly claiming the Lord Jesus Christ, and not just the one-size-fits-all “God,” that any religion can claim.

    That’s the news about Trump that I’m looking for.

    Is this so?

    I agree that God appoints leaders, but if a person claims Christ, I expect them to claim Him.

    Your friend,

      I don’t think it is up to us to judge his faith. God knows what’s best for America and even if Trump has not yet become “religious ” God will use him to fulfill His plan for us. Our prayers and faith are needed!

        Good mornin Kathy.
        I should have made it clear that I am not intending any ugliness towards you in my previous comment.

        It just galls me to see Jesus/Christianity used as a prop to get votes, and after they get what they want…you don’t hear a word about the Lord Jesus Christ.

        And no doubt, he needs our prayers, and we are to respect the authority that God has put in place.
        And…I’m here to be kind to you. God bless you Kathy.

        I didn’t take offense, Lee. I get what you’re saying. Unfortunately we live in a different time today and our president isn’t elected on the basis of
        His religion.


  2. I could not have expressed this any better Kathy—-you summed up everything I first felt down to how I feel now—
    Gone are the days of apologizing for a nation that has had no need to apologize.
    Gone are those leaders who relished in showing their soft underbellies.

    Not that I cheerlead for wars or aggression by any stretch of the imagination but sometimes tough talk is needed in a very tough world.

    Those school yard bullies who so enjoy picking on the “nice” kid—well sometimes the nice kid needs to stand up to the bullies with a bit of bravado in order to shut them up!
    President Trump’s UN speech, much like the one he gave in West Va a while back to a crowd of hard working American coal miners, made me feel proud again—
    not arrogant, but proud. As in “hey world, America is back to lead the way in a very dark world”

      I’m so grateful to hear from a president that obviously cares about our country and is willing to stand up for her. It’s about time someone told the UN to get to work.

      I think many underestimate this man. He knows the press will take the bait and run with it. I think that gives him time to focus on the job. I’m also prayi
