 “In the 1930s, American capitalism practically stopped working,” says google.  War was on the horizon.  The leading causes of death were very much like present times – cardiovascular and renal diseases, cancer, influenza and pneumonia, tuberculosis, motor vehicle traffic injuries, and suicide.

President Roosevelt’s New Deal was launched to save/revive the economy.  It worked.

Hopefully President Trump’s efforts to rebuild our economy will also be successful.  A major difference, however.  The political parties, the people, the media were pulling for America in 1930s’.  Now it appears the united forces who want a One World Government is as strong as those who want to remain a strong independent America.

Now why would I be writing all that stuff in a post about being grateful.  This is why:

God still controls what happens.  He raises up leaders and nations and He puts them down.  Christians’ prayers and responses are a turning factor in the timing of God.  Notice I say “timing” of God.  There will come a One World Government.  That is prophesied, but timing is unknown and determined by God Himself.

In the 1930’s I was about the size of these girls – my great granddaughters.  God was in control then, as He was now  That is my hope for them and my gratefulness to Him.

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...

    There was and still is only the ONE answer for the world’s sickness. It is called SIN. What is the solution? It was never a war or even a vaccine. God is in CONTROL. Thank God He is. Wake up world He sent the answer. One day! Eternally..

    Love the great grandma with the great grand kids. Beautiful and adorable kids , those two.

    Now to serious matter. ” Christians’ prayers and responses are a turning factor in the timing of God. ” – if those prayers produced the current occupant of the people’s house, than I am glad not to pray. Hopefully the old, bearded guy will notice why I don’t pray and give me a visit to inquire😀.
