In mercy, forgive.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    AMEN!! (How many presidents have you lived through??? If I may ask?)

    • oneta hayes says:

      Ummm. Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama -13 (unlucky) Trump (glad he is 14 not 13)! If Trump makes it eight years, I might still see another one. Who knows? If not, I’m ready – just not anxious – for the real King! 😀

    Amen! How I long for us to be a united country again.

    • oneta hayes says:

      But, alas, what if the united country is brought about by surrendering one’s standards. There is not much division as long as the submissive remain submissive. Now I would dearly love a united country that was united under God. But hearing all the howls out there make me think there are a lot of people who don’t like that idea. A bully once upon a time said to my son, “If you’re a Christian, I guess you can take this,” as he knocked him down. Yes, Jesus said, “Turn the other cheek.” But then again he whipped the temple merchants. Takes prayer to know when to do what. It seems to me that some of the submissive have decided they found someone who would speak up for them.

    a-men. Only if America returns to its foundational beginnings of IN GOD WE TRUST will you ever be great again (if you ever were) in His Eyes. it does not matter a brass razoo if a camel was the President as long as God is allowed to lead any nation and His morality and trust RULES in their HOMES their schools and in their churches and EVERYWHERE. Continuing division between factions of God’s People too must cease. 2017 another year of GRACE. My Grace abound!
