Confabulation of Muses--What Is Yours?

"We find comfort among those who agree with us--growth among those who don't."
Frank A. Clark, author

This has been both a soothing salve and sandpaper day for me. As I watch the news with the rest of the world, not just wars and doom and gloom, but also those that are trying to make a difference in positive ways. It's an amazing confabulation of muses trying to get noticed.

It makes sense that we want to be with those who are like us, but I ponder today and wonder if we are in agreement wholly with our religious, family, and political traditions. It appears that all shades of what has been are changing to fit what we want for today instead of holding on to what works and what is truth.

For me there are two things that stand as standards, the first is the Holy Bible. My tradition of life, promises and hope are based on the Word of God. Next comes the U. S. Constitution which is based originally by our founding fathers on nothing less than the Holy Bible. The second can and certainly has been changed by the whims and different traditions of man and the confabulation of ideas continue to change the values that were first instituted when we were a young country.

If we do not hold on to the basic premise of what we stood for in the beginning, how will we become what was inspired within the hearts of our forefathers and has made us strong? The basic breakdown of family and moral values have undermined the very Constitution that made us great. I pray that we will not allow the Constitution of 1787 to become completely lost in this generation.

You make a difference!

Susan, you are right we do find comfort in those things, however, we grow more when we are confronted. It is then that we can see what we truly believe.
The Bible says iron sharpens iron and if you have no discomfort at your church or in the contacts you have you are not being sharpened and prepared for the battle that will come.
Good post.

I know what you are saying.This past few months have been very disturbing
as I've watched it all unfold.
Things have been done and not done that I find so strange and I can't hardly wrap my thoughts around it.
The U.S.Constitution has been thrown out with the bath water and the only thing I find peaceful is my Fathers word.
Good post Susan
