Broken, this simple two syllable word in many ways sums up life.
On a personal level, my car has 171,000 miles on it, the 58 year old discs in my back ache, my dog got sick, and I am recently unemployed.
On a much larger stage the news is filled with cowardly terrorist attacks, racial tensions that have reached critical mass, and truth in politics is at an oxymoronic high.
'Arncha' glad you are reading my blues blog? I am a glass half empty kinda guy as society is about to explode with so much rage, distrust, dishonesty, and disgust.
Even in the 'Christian' community there is so much angst and devisive feelings in the church. God's neverchanging truths (our Bibles) are now in question by politically correct self proclaimed 'progressive' believers. The church is a frog in a boiling pot baptism compromising our core values on marriage, alchohol, premarital relationships, the gay lifestyle, and much more.
The million dollar question now is.. What's a fella like me to do when everything is .. BROKEN? I have a few ideas..
Note, these bullet points on fixing all that is broken are not marching orders by a cartoonist for revival. Even though my employment status notes I am available, I am NOT running for president, pope, and/or king of the world. (my resume qualifications are a bit light), BUT the scripture truths in these bullet points are undeniably true for all that is broken.
May God bless, use, and MEND your lives, country, and world in ways that are beyond your dreams.

My 1981 car has passed 99,999 miles several times when I was not watching it. My 71 year old spine has scoliosis, my last dog died in 2008 and I am retired and have, so far, NOT been able to get any retirement income. I KNOW that Christ is coming soon. Be brave and keep on cartooning. But "soon" does not tell us when but means that the event will occur very suddenly. So be ready.
