LOVE >>> HATE
The last 10 days have been rough, Scary. Confusing. Infuriating. And a little DEPRESSING.
You see, I quit watching the news years ago because, well it's all CRAP and if I have to choose between "being well informed" and being "ignorantly living out my existence in my own little bubble . . . "
I choose B.
But in the past 10 days my bubble has been violently invaded.
It started when some dude decided to go shoot up a church outside of Nashville. I read a report that said that he shot some lady in the parking lot . . . in the BACK and then proceeded to turn her over and shoot her in the face. Then he went into the church and shot up some more people before being confronted by a church member and then he shot himself in the leg.
Well Crap . . .
I go to church. My wife goes to church. My kids go to church.
Bubble. Violently. Invaded.
Then a couple days ago . . . Las Vegas happened.
I don't know if you feel the same way I do but I can sense the HATE in this world growing.
I mean it's not like hate hasn't been around since Cain decided to kill his brother Able. But DANG.
People need to take a deep breath for Pete's sake.
Okay follow me here . . . Breath in . . . Breath out . . . Breath in . . . Breath out . . . In . . . Out!
The problem with this world is that there is too much HATE and not enough LOVE. Period.
When a guy goes to a church and shoots a bunch of people that he doesn't know
a man goes to the 32nd floor of a hotel with an arsenal of automatic weapons and opens fire killing 50 and injuring 500 people that he doesn't even know . . . there is only one explanation for that.
He has so much hate in him that he actually has to go looking for people to pour it on.
At least Cain KNEW Able.
How does one fight that kind of HATE?
There is only one way. With LOVE.
Love is greater than Hate. Always has been. Always will be.
What do you . . .DO . . . with that?
I will tell you what I'm gonna do.
I'm gonna go home and kiss my wife . . . AND hug my daughters . . . AND fist bump my son . . . AND watch Trolls with them on the couch while eating pop corn.
(BTW, eating popcorn while watching a movie on your couch with your family has been proven to prolong LIFE . . . probably. :)
Then I'm going to go to work and provide the absolute BEST chiropractic care that I am capable of providing to every single person that walks through my door.
(BTW, Chiropractic has been shown to increase Quality of LIFE and DECREASE illness.)
On Sunday I will attend church service and if someone with an over abundance of HATE decides to shoot me in the back and then flip me over and shoot me in the face . . .
I am going to rest easy knowing that I am in the GOOD hands of Jesus who ultimately defeated hate a LONG time ago.
My friends . . . Life is SHORT . . . Love 'em while you got 'em!
Now excuse me while I go clean the mess out of my bubble.
Yours in Health,
PS. It's not a bad idea to carry a Glock on your hip either. Just don't let it steal your joy.
