“DEAR,…CONGRESS”!...

Post by izzyfalcon » Mon Sep 30, 2013 1:31 pm

“DEAR,…CONGRESS”!...

The best way, to determine what a community wants,…is; to listen, to what its people have to say. This is a fundamental principle, of democracy. Disagreements, can lead to healthy debates,…which; brings new information, and ideas to light. When a particular issue strikes, at the fundamental beliefs,…of a group; or individual, the debate can be especially fierce. In these situations, it becomes more important than ever,…to: practice civility!...

The purpose of this, (my letter); is to urge the citizens of America,…to; communicate in a more respectful and effective way. Mine, is not a campaign,…to; end disagreements. It’s a campaign, to improve public discourse,…by; simply reminding ourselves, of the very basic principles,…of: Respect!... By elevating our level, of communication and avoiding personal attacks,…and; general stubbornness, we can avoid unhealthy debates.

This will lead, to a more effective democracy, and help maintain our sense,…of community; and country, by increasing our civic participation. I hope, to reach not only our elected officials,…and political groups; but, also regular people,…like; my neighbors, Church groups and other organizations,…even: you parents, who stand on the sidelines. I’m not just targeting those, who are uncivil,…but; those who allow, uncivilized behaviors to occur!...

My key message, is to promote; civility!...

(“DEAR,…CONGRESS”)!... Please pay attention. Be aware and attend, to our country’s needs,…and; the people who have elected each of you, as individuals: to represent us. Listen!... Focus on others, in order to better understand,…our points; of view. Be inclusive!... Welcome all groups, of citizens,…working; for the greater good, of our Nation. Don’t gossip!... And don’t accept, when others choose,…to do so. Show Respect!... Honor the people of the United States of America, and our opinions,…especially; in the midst of your current, disagreements!...

Apologize!... Be sincere and repair, your damaged relationships,…with us; the people. Give constructive criticism!... When disagreeing, stick to the issues,…and; don’t make a personal attack, on each other. Take responsibility!... Don’t shift responsibility, and blame onto others,…share; disagreements, publicly.

And, finally,…I pray; “That, in order for us all,…to; harness this passion, we call America,…toward useful ends; it’s most important, that we as a people,…communicate: in a more civil, and productive Way!”… Amen.

Your Friend,
Izzy!...

I pray,..."That someone, within this network; has the necessary connections, to pass this onward; up and until, it reaches its final destination. Otherwise, these are simply, words in the wind!"... Amen.

Won't someone, within "Nethugs.com"; of any real political influence, strive to pass this message,...onward?... I pray,...so!...

Your Friend,

Wow, what a message you have penned Izzy. This is one great letter, as you said to pass on to Washington. Obama sure needs to read it and Harry Reid. I will copy and paste this letter on and bet I find some one to send it to in Washington. To many of the chuckle heads have forgotten diplomacy, class and integrity. GOD BLESS YOU AND THANK YOU FOR THIS MAGNIFICENT LETTER. SINCERELY, BRENDA

“OPENING,…ROSES”!...

Post by izzyfalcon » Sun Oct 06, 2013 3:02 pm

“OPENING,…ROSES”!...

Johnny, where are you?... With these words, a young mother began,…a search; for her little five-year-old. He wasn’t in the bedroom, the bathroom, nor even,…in the kitchen; snooping around, for what’s new in breakfast cereal. She looked out, the window and there she saw him,…walking; from the garden, toward the house,…his colorful pajamas; wet with the morning dew!...

“What were you doing?”,… she asked him.
“Helping God”,…he replied.
“Helping God?”,…queried his mother.
“Yep. I was opening up the roses, for Him”.

Well, you and I smile at his morning chores,…because; we know that there is, one thing you just don’t do,…go around: (“OPENING,…ROSES”)!... We have learned, that roses open on their own,…when; the time is right. You just can’t rush them.

But, unfortunately,…we; forget this Truth, in regard to other problems. We often feel, like little Johnny,…that; we can help God, by doing things that,…the Lord: has never told us, to do.

Most of our headaches, and heartaches,…in this Life; are caused by impatience, by our trying to solve matters our own way,…in our: own time. We go around opening roses, thinking we’re helping God,…thereby.

A sign of Spiritual maturity, is the ability to wait,…patiently upon our Lord!... Let’s stop going around, (“OPENING,…ROSES”)!... Amen.

Your Friend,
Izzy!...

“SUCH,…SEDUCERS!”…

Post by izzyfalcon » Fri Oct 11, 2013 1:48 pm

“SUCH,…SEDUCERS!”…







Time and space, would fail me,…in reporting, the multiplied ways; in which, sinful mankind,…has violated; the ways, of Righteousness. But, the real problem is,…that, mankind; continues, to blatantly disregard,…the Word-of-God!...







Even, as Romans 1:28 declares,…”They, do not like, to retain God; in, their knowledge!”… Before Him, shall gather,…all nations; and, he will separate them,…one, from another; as, a Shepherd,…divides, His Sheep: from, the goats!...







True-Believers, today,…are grieved; beyond measure, due to decisions,…made; by, national leaders,…who violate, the principles; of, God’s Word. The unrestrained wickedness, and violence,…prevailing, in our schools; is because, God and Prayer,…have been removed,…from them!...







(“SUCH,…SEDUCERS”),…will wax, worse and worse; and those, who are waiting,…and, hoping for a better day; on, this Earth,…are, in for a long-haul. My fears, have been realized,…because, the Churches; as , a whole,…has elected, to (Not) feed their flocks; choosing, instead, the entertaining ways,…of, this World!...







Some, look-on,…the coming, of Jesus; as a time, of,…”Gloom-And-Doom”. But, that’s (Not), the message,…our Master; left, for us!...(please see, 1st. Thessalonians 5:9).







Your Friend,

“HAVE,…A,…MARY-CHRISTMAS”!...

Post by izzyfalcon » Tue Dec 03, 2013 1:36 pm

“HAVE,…A,…MARY-CHRISTMAS”!...

Instead of having a Martha-Christmas,…have a; Mary-Christmas!...(please see, Luke 10:38-42).

As Jesus and His Disciples, were on their way,…He; came to a village, where a woman named Martha,…opened her home: to Him. She had a sister, called Mary,…who; sat at the Lord’s feet, listening to what He said. But Martha, was distracted by all the preparations,…that; had to be made. She came to Him, and asked,…”Lord, don’t you care,…that; my sister has left me, to do the work,…by myself”?...

Tell her, to help me!... “Martha, Martha”, our Lord answered. “You are worried, and upset about many things,…but; only one thing, is needed. Mary has chosen, what is better,…and; it will not be taken-away, from her”!...

In the midst, of your busy Christmas Season,…please take time; to focus on the Giver-of-Gifts, instead of just the giving of gifts. May the priority, of our lives,…and families, this Season; and in the new coming year, be on our Saviour and Lord,…and: on His Word!... Amen.

May I humbly suggest, that more of us need,…to; spend time, with our families,…teaching them; the Wonder and Majesty, of Almighty-God and His Son!...

Your Friend,
Izzy!...

“THE-CHALLENGE,…OF,…THE-NATIVITY”!...

Post by izzyfalcon » Wed Dec 04, 2013 2:53 pm

“THE-CHALLENGE,…OF,…THE-NATIVITY”!...

While the nativity story, is a time to reflect upon an incredible event that happened,…in history; it also has great meaning, for our lives today. Just as Jesus’ birth, provided challenges to those who were alive when it happened,…His birth; also provides challenges for us today. At the heart of this story, is the demonstration of Faith, and of Obedience,…on the part; of Mary and Joseph!...

Each had to face the challenge, of how to respond to the fact that Almighty-God,…was going to; bring about a baby, through a young virgin girl. Mary and Joseph, were ordinary people,…who; demonstrated extra-ordinary Faith, in their commitment to serve God and do His will,…regardless: of the cost…(please see, Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 1:28-28). So too, God wants to use ordinary people,…today; who will have extra-ordinary Faith, and commitment to Him!... Are you, one of these?... I pray,…so!...

When hearing the good news, about the nativity,…the shepherds; not only responded, by going to see the baby Jesus,…they also; left, proclaiming to all,…what they had seen and heard…(please read, Luke 2:17-20). In the midst, of all of the commercialism surrounding Christmas,…where; its true meaning, can be obscured or lost altogether,…will we; be like the shepherds, and proclaim to all,…the Truth: about the nativity story?... I pray,…so!...

When confronted, with the birth of the Messiah,…the wise men; chose to travel, hundreds of miles,…to; worship the newborn King. However, when confronted with the same Truth,…king Herod; refused to travel, just a few miles,…to; give honor, to the King of kings…(please see, Matthew 2:1-12). Likewise, we all must face the choice,…of; whether or not, we will accept the free gift,…God offers: to all.

As an Angel, of the Lord proclaimed to the shepherds,…”Do not be afraid, for behold,…I bring you; good tidings of great joy, which will be,…to all people. For there is born, to you this day,…in the city of David; a Saviour, who is Christ our Lord”!...(please read, Luke 2:10-11). May this Christmas, be more than just the remembrance of a past event,…or; an outpouring, of holiday spirit. May it be a challenge, for all of us,…to; have the true meaning, of the nativity, evident in our lives,…and: homes!... Amen.

Your Friend,
Izzy!...
P.S. If you find yourselves, so inclined; please feel free, to send me a holiday post-card to Israel Falcon / 1864 22nd. Avenue / Apt. # 1410 / Kenosha, Wisconsin 53140
