Spring thaw

I have come out of hibernation for good (I think). Should not be any extended periods of extreme cold.My gardening fever is getting a little higher, so today I may do something along that line. I have to go to the dentist for some adjustment on my new teeth,(plus get the one fixed that broke off over the weekend!) Another story but I won't go there.
We are trying to clean out a lot of stuff that we haven't used for a while. I think some of it comes under the category of junk. Some we just don't need any more. Also working on the outside. Needs painting.
Enough of this and on to something that should alarm all of us. Last week the President, (and I use that term loosely), told a a group of people wherever he was at, that the United States was not a Christian nation, or a Jewish nation, or a Muslim nation, but a nation of citizens. This statement bothers me a little. No it bothers me a lot! I agree with the fact that we are a nation of citizens, but why is he leaving out the faith end of it. I also agree that there should be a separation of Church and State for the purpose of governing the country. That was tried and failed miserably during a period of our history. We must stand up and fight for our religious freedom. We can't be run over by those who don't understand what it means to live in Christ. I have been reading the Book of Revelation again, and it is becoming clearer each time I read it and hits closer to home.
I have more to say, but I have to go to the dentist. I get really upset with some of what I am hearing on the news. In the words of a commentator on a local radio station---and I quote-- "Makes me mad enough to give the dog a day off and bite the mailman myself"!
