The Lord’s Home Run

Freddy and the Lord stood by to observe a baseball game. The Lord’s team was playing Satan’s team.

The Lord’s team was at bat, the score was tied zero to zero, and it was the bottom of the 9th inning with two outs. They continued to watch as a batter stepped up to the plate named “Love.”

Love swung at the first pitch and hit a single, because “Love never fails.”

The next batter was named Faith, who also got a single because Faith works with Love.

The next batter up was named Godly Wisdom. Satan wound up and threw the first pitch.

Godly Wisdom looked it over and let it pass: ball one. Three more pitches and Godly Wisdom walked because he never swings at what Satan throws.

The bases were now loaded. The Lord then turned to Freddy and told him He was now going to bring in His starplayer. Up to the plate stepped Grace. Freddy said, “He sure doesn’t look like much!”

Satan’s whole team relaxed when they saw Grace. Thinking he there was no way he could lose, Satan wound up and fired his first pitch. To the shock of everyone, Grace hit the ball harder than anyone had ever seen! However, Satan was not worried; his center fielder let very few get by.

He went up for the ball, but it went right through his glove, hit him on the head and sent him crashing on the ground; the roaring crowds went wild as the ball continued over the fence for a home run!

The Lord’s team won!

The Lord then asked Freddy if he knew why Love, Faith, and Godly Wisdom could get on base but couldn’t win the game. Freddy answered that he didn’t know why.

The Lord explained, “If your love, faith, and wisdom had won the game, you would think you had done it by yourself. Love, Faith, and Wisdom will get you on base, but only My Grace can get you Home.

The Miracle at Garabandal

San Sebastian de Garabandal is a small hamlet of some 80 humble dwellings located in the Cantabrian Mountains of northern Spain. Between 1961 and 1965, the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared hundreds of times to four local girls who spoke openly and familiarly with her and said the rosary in her presence.

Our Lady of Garabandal

Three great supernatural events were prophesied at Garabandal.

1) The first is a worldwide Warning from God to be seen and then felt interiorly by everyone on Earth. At that moment, we will see the wrong we’ve done and the good we failed to do. The Warning will be sent to correct the conscience of the world and prepare it for the great Miracle, which is to come within twelve months of the Warning.

2) The second is a Miracle that will take place at the grove of pine trees on a bluff overlooking the village of Garabandal. It will occur on a Thursday evening at 8:30, on or between the eighth and the sixteenth of April, on a feast-day of a martyred Saint for the Eucharist. It will also coincide with a great event in the Church, but not a feast-day of Our Lady or Our Lord. All those either in the village or surrounding mountains will see it. The sick who are present will be cured, sinners converted and the incredulous will believe. It will be able to be filmed, photographed and televised. As a result of the Miracle, Russia will be converted.

3) The third is a Sign. After the Miracle, a permanent visible supernatural sign will remain at the pines in Garabandal until the end of time. This visible proof of our Blessed Mother’s love for all humanity will be a “thing” never before seen upon the earth that can be photographed but not touched.

The date of the Miracle

The visionary named Conchita was told the date. She is to announce it eight days in advance which one supposes would give the faithful who wish to be there time to travel. The means of communicating the date to the world will be a miracle in itself. Conchita is presently about 64 years old; unless she’s going to be appearing from beyond the grave to announce the date, we can suppose the Miracle will occur within the next 30 years or so.

Conchita looked up the date on the calendar in her home and found it to be the feast day of a Holy Martyr related to the Eucharist. She has told us that he has a very rare name. Eucharistic martyrs aren’t all that thick on the ground; in fact, I found none on the general calendar for April 8-16. However, there is one on the LOCAL calendar for SPAIN.

The Feast of St. Hermengild, Patron of Seville and Martyr for the Eucharist, is on April 13th. His name is rare, to say the least! Hermengild was one of two sons of Leovigild, the Arian King of the Visigoths (569-86). He was beheaded on Easter, April 13, 585, by order of his own father, for refusing to receive Holy Communion from the hands of an Arian bishop. Arianism is a heresy which rejects the divinity of Jesus.

Remember when I worked out the triple conjunctions of Roman and Orthodox Easters with Jewish Feasts of Firstfruits and pondered whether the Rapture might not occur in April of 2014? See https://polination.wordpress.com/2013/06/22/will-the-rapture-occur-in-april-2014/

Did you happen to notice that between now and 2028, only 2014 and 2017 feature triple conjunctions?

1990 to 2049 - TRIPLE conjunction years

And do you remember when I explained the significance of the Hebrew year 5777? See https://polination.wordpress.com/2013/06/16/1917-to-2017-and-the-significance-of-three-five-and-seven/.

Did you happen to notice that the Easter-Passover season of April 2017 will fall in the Jewish year 5777?

Nisan 5777 = MarApr 2017

Check it out!

In 2017, April 13th, the Feast of St. Hermengild, who was martyred for his faith in the Holy Eucharist, will fall on Holy Thursday … the Feast of the Institution of the Holy Eucharist!

There is another calendar anomaly here worth noting which is that the dates in Nisan, 33, when the first Passover-Easter occurred, will match the dates in April, 2017.

Dates first Easter and 2017 Easter match

The RCC has not passed judgment on the validity of Garabandal apparitions

Because the events prophesied have not taken place, the Church considers the Garabandal events to be incomplete and has therefore withheld judgment. Despite this very proper caution in granting the church’s stamp of approval to the apparitions, the local Bishop studied the content of the messages the seers reported Our Lady gave them and wrote in 1965,

“We have not found anything deserving of ecclesiastical censorship or condemnation either in the doctrine or in the spiritual recommendations that have been publicized as having been addressed to the faithful, for these contain an exhortation to prayer and sacrifice, to Eucharistic devotion, to veneration of Our Lady in traditional praiseworthy ways, and to holy fear of God offended by our sins. They simply repeat the common doctrine of the Church in these matters.”

THE TUESDAY GRUDGE

Posted by Pistol Pete

15 republican senators happily slipped the hangman’s noose around their own necks last night as the democrats marveled silently at their gullibility.I will expose the sellouts.

Supreme Court struck down key provision in the 1964 Civil Rights Act and Barry,Eric,Sheila Jackass Cheetah,Sharptongue and the rest of the race-baiters are bemoaning this carriage of justice.

Obama has permitted Putin,Imadinnerjacket,Xi Jinping,et al. to show America to be a world-class laughingstock

The Zimmerman trial started out yesterday on a bizzare note as one of his lawyers opened his statement with a knock knock joke.

Barry has announced he will mandatorily skyrocket energy prices through executive orders,again proving he ignores laws he disagrees with.

THIS IS ONE OF MY SURPRISED FACES!!

THIS IS TRAYVON’S MAMA AND DADDY;HE EVIDENTLY CALLED ONE OF ZIMMERMAN’S FRIENDS HALF A WORD.HE CALLED HIM A MOTHER******. ZIMMERMAN’S FAMILY IS NOT ALLOWED IN THE COURTROOM,BUT MARTIN’S FAMILY CAN SO THEY CAN WHINE TO THE CAMERAS EVERY NIGHT.YOU WOULD THINK WITH ALL THE MONEY THEY GOT HE COULD AFFORD ONE SUIT AND TIE THAT DOESN’T LOOK LIKE IT CAME FROM THE SALVATION ARMY.

Our Lady of the Sierras

Recently, I posted a photo of a statue of Mary that came through the Black Forest fire unscathed @ https://polination.wordpress.com/2013/06/20/look-who-survived-the-black-forest-fire/.

Mama Buzz emailed back to remind me of the similar miraculous survival of the statues at Our Lady of the Sierras Shrine in Hereford, Arizona.

The Buzzers were near there when the Monument Fire burned out of control. Daddy Buzz helped fight it, while Mama kept the car packed and the kids ready for possible evacuation. Thankfully, they, their home and personal belongings were not touched.

But the Mary shrine at Hereford was in the middle of one of the evacuated areas hit hardest. Mama Buzz sent me photos and links so I could blog about it for you. Our God is so amazing!

Going to Africa

While on their mega-expensive (for us, not them) tour of Africa, the Obamas will stress the importance of education. They will not be doing this in the nation Barack has always alleged to be home to his “Dream” relatives. He’s not setting foot in Kenya at all. Why, you might ask? Well, apart from the obvious – i.e., he’s not related to them in any way and knows it – there’s also the teensy weensy problem of the broken promises he made last time he visited.

One of those bizarre God stories

Adoptive Family Helps Raped Teen Whose Mom Pressured Her to Have Abortion

by Nancy Flanders | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com

Two weeks after giving birth to her second child, Julia Schoch received an email that would forever change her life. It was February, 2003, and she was at home recovering from a C-section with her husband, her two-year-old son, and her newborn daughter when her husband Andy told her she had an email that she needed to see immediately. It was from a friend who knew of a 13-year-old pregnant rape victim who needed help. It turned out that Julia was exactly the help this girl and her baby needed.

“It’s one of those kind of bizarre God stories,” explains Julia, “I’d been involved in pro-life stuff since high school, and I had monitored a message board for CBR [The Center for Bio-Ethical Reform]. I would come into contact with people who were post-abortive. In that, I met a woman who had an abortion at 18 weeks and five days, and I ended up becoming friends with her. Over two years of encouraging her and loving her, she finally felt ready to share her story. She was telling [that] story at a Campus Crusade for Christ event at her campus. In the audience, was a young woman who shared that her 13-year-old sister had been raped and was pregnant. Their mother was pressuring her to abort the baby. This girl was reaching out for help.”

Julia knew that if she asked this young girl, just an 8th grader, to go against her mother, she would need to make it a practical, realistic option. She immediately started praying that it was God’s plan for her to adopt this baby. Then, while she was nursing her daughter and praying about adopting, she realized Andy would think she was nuts. Adoption hadn’t been on their radar. They hadn’t ever researched it or budgeted any money for it. But just then, Andy walked into the room and told Julia that he wanted to adopt the baby.

“It was just that gut feeling that God gives you sometimes,” Julia explains.

Julia let her friend know that she and her husband wanted to adopt the baby, and then continued to pray. Finally, she heard back that the girl was willing to talk with her, so Julia, her friend, and the young girl – states away – chatted on the phone. Julia found out some disconcerting information. The girl had already gone to a clinic for an abortion.

She told Julia that she was at the abortion clinic for six hours, and that the clinic tested her for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and performed an ultrasound. However, they wouldn’t allow her to look at the ultrasound and didn’t inform her of the results of the STD tests. But that wasn’t the most astounding part.

The clinic informed her that she was 20 weeks pregnant, but that at 20 weeks, the baby wasn’t formed yet. That was lie number one. They went on to tell her that if she did have the baby, she wouldn’t survive labor because she was so young. That was lie number two. When the girl asked about adoption, the clinic told her that no one would want to adopt a “biracial, rapist’s baby.” That was lie number three.

Scared of dying while giving birth to a baby no one would want, the young girl and her mother consented to an abortion without being informed about the actual procedure. In addition, the price that had been quoted to her mother for the abortion included local anesthesia. Then the clinic discovered that the girl was 20 weeks along and would require a D&E (live dismemberment abortion) that would normally involve general anesthesia.

The mother hadn’t brought enough money to cover the additional fees, so the abortionist decided to proceed with the abortion using local anesthesia, leaving the girl awake for an abortion that would take about 20 minutes while she was dilated using metal rods (which can cause fertility problems).

“She was on the table, in stirrups and being dilated,” says Julia, “She was in so much pain and she was getting upset. She was so upset that the abortionist told the mother that the girl was making his job too difficult and advised the mother to come up with more money, reschedule, and come back so he could finish the abortion. In between the appointments is when I had the chance to talk to her.”

Knowing that this girl didn’t have an advocate and that one day she would find out that what the clinic had told her about her baby wasn’t true, Julie knew that the one thing she could do for this girl was to provide her with accurate information, and have her friend share her experience with her own second trimester abortion. These women told the girl to stand up for herself and to research everything that Julia was telling her. Julia told her that while other people would move on and forget about this baby, that as the mother, she would never forget about being pregnant with this child.

Soon after the phone call, Julia received word that on the morning of the rescheduled abortion, the girl told her mother that she wasn’t going through with it. A month later, Julia found out that the girl had chosen her and her husband to be the adoptive parents, which Julia calls an “incredible honor.”

At 23 weeks, the birth mother finally began receiving prenatal care and doctors told her she had chlamydia, something the abortion clinic never bothered to inform her of. The abortion clinic had left her uneducated about her own health regarding a disease that can cause sterility. If she had gone through with the abortion, she likely wouldn’t have found out she had chlamydia, and may have aborted the only child she would have ever been able to have.

During her pregnancy, Julia and her husband were able to meet the birth mother and chat about baby names. The birth mother invited Julia to be in the delivery room. Julia says:

“She asked us if we were thinking of names and if we would mind if she told us one she liked. Well, two weeks prior to meeting her, there was a girl at the park with a name we’d never heard before and we really liked it. [The birth mother] told us she liked the name Jaylyn. It was the same name we had chosen.”

When it was time for Jaylyn to be born, Julia, her husband, son and now six-month-old daughter drove out and spent 11 days in a Holiday Inn.

“It was wild,” explains Julia, “Both [babies] were nursing. It was just off the charts amazing.”

Today, Julia maintains a relationship with her daughter’s birth mother who is thriving thanks to some amazing people who rallied behind her. She began attending church as did her mother, and they are now both extremely pro-life. The birth mother has graduated from high school and gone on to pursue higher education.

“Personally, I think of this girl as a true hero,” says Julia, “because she not only went against her mom, but also enormous peer pressure & pressure from those in positions of authority – like the doctors in white coats. She had to be visibly pregnant walking the halls at school. Incredible courage. We believe she and birth mothers like her are the very definition of ‘mother’ – selfless love and sacrifice in action.”

Julia and her husband now have a total of six children. And despite the fact that they didn’t have the money to afford adopting Jaylyn, they trusted that God would be there.

“At the end of the month, when you’re paying the bills and you know you don’t have any more money coming in, God made sure our needs were met. We needed a $400 retainer fee for an attorney and I’m standing in my house like, ‘Lord, we don’t have $400.’ But if He wants us to do this, He’s going to figure it out. We’re going to do what He says and leave the details up to Him. I went to the mailbox and there was a check for $400 from the IRS for the George Bush child tax refund. And I was like, ‘Well, there it is’. It was stuff like that the whole time.”

Julia and her husband have since signed up to be foster-to-adopt parents, as have many of their church members and neighbors. Julia also founded Respond for Life, a group that connects people to resources available in the pro-life movement and opportunities for action against abortion. She educates people on abortion through training and public speaking and also works with Choices 4 Life as a speaker against abortion in cases of rape. She is a strong advocate for adoption, especially the adoption of children with special needs.

Julia says:

“Society tends to have a negative view of adoption. There is a misperception that adopted children are somehow inferior to biological children. I have found adoption to be an inexpressible blessing. A true miracle. I was able to more fully grasp God’s love for me through the adoption of my own daughter. My heart does not recognize a difference between her & my biological children. When we come to salvation in Christ, we are adopted as sons and daughters of God and He becomes our Father.”

Jaylyn is now nine years old and due to the abortion attempt, has some significant special needs and challenges that she will have for the rest of her life. She receives occupational therapy, speech therapy, and physical therapy.

“She’s definitely coming along,” says Julia, “She’s a worshipper! She doesn’t know how to sing quietly when we go to church. She prays and just cries. You ask her what she’s doing and she’ll tell you ‘praying for Daddy’ or whoever she is praying for with tears streaming down her face.”

Jaylyn also has a heart for special needs children and adults. Julia has watched her walk up and hold the hand of a young man whose fingers were deformed due to muscular dystrophy. Her best friend is an adopted little boy who is blind, mostly deaf, and in a wheelchair, due to being a victim of Shaken Baby Syndrome. He can hear the tone of Jaylyn’s voice, and she sings to him and makes him laugh. If the family is out and Jaylyn spots someone with Down syndrome, then that is who she wants to talk to or play with.

“It is so beautiful,” says Julia, “I’ve never seen anything like it. The parents are visibly moved to have their children unconditionally embraced. She makes them feel like they are the special people they are. Jaylyn’s a really special person.”

THE MONDAY GRUDGE

Posted by Pistol Pete

Busy day today;

The Supremes are meeting for the last day before vacation and are expected to rule on cases such as DOMA,affirmative action and voting rights.

Reid slipped a big fat plum into the amnesty bill for the casinos in his state,and the sniveling South Carolina simp is bragging he’ll get 70 votes for euthanizing the Republican Party.

Barry is packing to go on safari to Africa with stops in South Africa and Tanzania,but is skipping his homeland of Kenya,much to the chagrine of his extensive family there.Somebody might start asking about where,exactly he was born since he’s spent millions to keep it hidden.

Edward Snowden slipped out of Hong Kong after the Chinese claimed the extradition paperwork the US gave them was incomplete.He landed in Russia,where he was supposed to go on to Ecuador or Cuba.Unfotunately,the feds can’t find him and Putin stuck his thumb in Barry’s eye.I have the feeling a real hardass like Putin has no respect for an empty sack of hot air except to extort money and military intelligence from.

The George Zimmerman trial started today.Zimmerman’s family was forced to leave the courtroom,as they are potential witmesses.Poor l’il 6’2″ innocent-as-a-lamb Trayvon  mama be wailing  ’bout justice for her baby.They already collected a cool million from the Homeowner’s Association,now they want someone hanged.There are 5 white women and one Hispanic on the panel,so a guilty finding is not a foregone conclusion.The homies are picking out the best neighborhoods to riot in where they can smash windows and steal the best stuff.
