Twenty Twelve (2012) is almost over and I can honestly say this has been a whirlwind of a year for me and my family. Stephanie was freshly pregnant when 2012 began. We found out that Junior was a boy on Valentine’s Day of 2012. I was appointed to public office in May and sworn in on June 5 of 2012. Junior was born on the 13th of June and my first major article was published in the local paper on the 15th of June, the same day Junior’s birth announcement ran. Then on July 2nd we took Stephanie to the ER to find out she had a massive blood clot in her leg. Twelve hours later she had 3 pieces of the clot break off and hit her lungs. It was a miracle she survived and admittedly when I saw her stop breathing it was by far the scariest moment of my life. It was totally different when I watched my grandparents die because I knew for months they were going. Nothing could have prepared me for what I experienced with Stephanie. I was also made a chapter leader with “The John Birch Society” a couple of months ago. President Obama is our best recruiter. After his win membership started taking off again to the degree we had to reorganize and expand the chapters in our area.
Things are much better now. Stephanie is still having to take prescription blood thinner. It is to prevent new clots and keep her alive if any new pieces break off. Natural health remedies have been able to counteract many of the side effects from this necessary use of pharmakeia. Even when I have spoken against pharmakeia in the past I have always made note that there are exceptions to when it is needed. Coumadin is over prescribed as a preventative drug. It should never be prescribed as a way to prevent blood clots if the body does not have any blood clots to begin with. Yet that is why most people are taking it. However it will save a persons life that does have clots. Nothing in the naturpathic world can mimic the life saving effects of coumadin to a patient that has blood clots. Of course it is not a very high quality life by any stretch of the imagination but at least they are alive and can move on to live a normal long life after the clot is gone. Assuming they become dedicated to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Some pharmakeia is necessary but more often than not it is over prescribed and abused.
Please do not think I am complaining about how life is going. Actually I am extremely thankful that Stephanie is still alive and every day she makes improvements. This experience has caused me to do massive amounts of research and I have learned so much stuff that is vital in making us healthier than we have ever been. It is slow going especially with Stephanie because the coumadin sucks nutrition out of the body and the only way a blood clot can heal is by proper nutrition. It can be healed it just takes a lot more work to get the nutrition in the body. Our bodies are programed by God to know how to be healthy with proper nutrition.
Also an update on my son. He is over 6 month old now going on 7 months. He is talking a lot. His favorite word is daddy. He can say mommy but he prefers the word daddy. He calls his mommy, daddy quite a bit. He has been mobile for a while now but has not mastered crawling. He can pull himself up into a standing position and stand while holding onto the table. He becomes more adorable to me everyday. I love him with everything in me. Two nights ago he would not go to sleep until I came in there to hold him and rock him in my arms. He just kept saying daddy over and over again until I came in there. I was busy in another part of the house at the time and had to stop what I was doing to get him to calm down for his mother.
Right now there is so much going on in the world that it is mind boggling. It makes all of my personal stories seem very trivial. The world is going into financial melt down. I have been predicting this for 5 years that it would be near the end of 2012 to the beginning of 2013. I pointed out that it (the economy) would go into meltdown around the time the mayan calendar ended. The end of the world would not happen but major problems in the world financial system would lead to a melt down around that time.
But even if they advert the cliff at the last minute the damage is already done. Things are going to get bad over the next year or two. We will eventually end up in a situation like Greece because of the situation with the economy, until most people are begging for martial law and concentration style FEMA camps to keep them safe and warm.
Also that is not the only event happening right now. Even though it is the most important event. Hurricane Sandy displaced many people for the winter and will take quite a while to recover. Then of course the Sandy Hook shooting has renewed the call for the communist to destroy our constitution. A deport Piers Morgan petition has been circling the net and has managed to get 70,000 signatures. Even more interesting, is a petition going around the UK asking their government not to allow him back in the country. No body wants that sicko who would love nothing more than to see our constitution burned and is notorious for fabricating news stories. His fabrication record is why he had to leave England to find a job in journalism. No surprise that American yellow journalist were eager to hire him. The last vestiges of free press is on the internet. Even then that is quickly leaving with people constantly having blogs and sites shut down or blocked because of unpopular content.
Of course there was other shootings like the Aurora massacre that the liberals did not exploit because of the election. That is the political game for both the left and right. Avoid talking about anything that will cost them the election. If the full truth was known to all people about most politicians in both parties, our nation would take a turn towards positive change and the communist right and communist left would be non-existent. That is why wrote in the vote Bilbo/Frodo Baggins 2012 for President! Just kidding, this was the first year since I turned 18 that I have refused to vote.
The sandy hook massacre was more heart wrenching because of the age of the children for sure. If it had happened before the election Obama would have stifled all talk of disarming the people because he knew that talk would have cost him the election. All politicians lie to get in office. Integrity is no longer existent in most Americans, especially politicians. You may hate me for pointing all of this out but we all know the truth in a society of liars is never popular. I am american by physical birth of course but when I became a christian I died and was reborn not an american but a christian. This is not my home, for my home is not of this world.
Also very interesting is all of the wild weather we had on Christmas day this year in 2012. Blizzards, tornados, straight line winds and the like was common throughout almost half of the continental USA, from Texas to Ohio. The signs of the times are speeding up and becoming more obvious. We are moving into the tribulation, of this I am sure. I am not saying the tribulation has officially begun. I do believe from everything that is happening that it will happen very soon, probably within the year. Assuming of course it has not already begun. As most of my regular readers already know I do not believe in a pre-trib rapture and feel the idea of a pre-trib rapture is a dangerous one for people who cannot cope with the thought of suffering or cannot take personal responsibility. Our only hope is to repent and turn to Jesus. No amount of physical preparedness will be of use if you do not have your spiritual house in order.
