Now mind you, I know what the word means. But, I of course wanted a deeper understanding of the this important word; preserve.
After, reviewing several sources of the definition for this word; preserve. I became distraught when I realized we are not truly preserving anything these days. Just any ol thing will do.
No sooner after that I realized I was nearly about to miss Palm Sunday. Yeah, that’s today. Oh, I knew next weekend is Easter, ham is laid out, and everything. But Palm Sunday has its own symbolic and important remembrance of its own.
Then, I thought, hmp,,, that’s weird. Typically when I get so busy with life that holidays may pass me without me even looking up from the grind, I can depend on my feed to remind me of holidays. I had come to rely on, get this, social media FB mogul to remind me what day it is on a weekly basis. Funny thing is, I didn’t see not even one post about Palm Sunday till mid morning. Unlike the FB gang not to post about a holiday. So of course I posted one myself
Its time to stand up and be counted fellow Americans who are Christians, before what Mr. President says we have become, truly is what America ends up being. No longer a Christian Nation. We need to preserve our Under God Nation before it destroys itself.

This weeks Sunday morning Reflections with E. Michelle Lee/ #RadioHost and Columnist; subject:
Look at this definition from Dictionary.com about PRESERVE:
[pri-zurv] Show IPA verb, pre·served, pre·serv·ing, noun
1325–75; Middle English preserven < Medieval Latin praeservāre to guard ( Late Latin: to observe), equivalent to Latin prae- pre- + servāre to watch over, keep, preserve, observe
1. conserve. 2. safeguard, shelter, shield. See defend. 3. continue, uphold, sustain.
Sound definition, I thought, no chance for not understanding just what preserve means. Yet, it’s when I went on to read the next line which shows the Antonym for the word that really helped me to see what it is to preserve something.
Now you know the Antonym is the direct opposite of what a word means.
Typically, there are several antonyms for a word. Not this one. There is only one word to describe the monstrosity of damage to something that is not preserved. If you don’t preserve something it can only be destroyed.
and anything else that needs our attention or something that some group comes up with as their “good cause”. Which, now, I agree with protecting all things that we should be cherishing; without a doubt.
But, here’s the thing, the one thing that we need to protect and carry on the baton; America in the majority numbers, have laid down to rest, as a fable not even worth telling in stories, to our next generation of Americans, the ways God meant for us to live and prosper.

Sadly, I report a Columbus Dispatch Article not too long ago reported that only about 30% of people surveyed were said to attend church and that included the once a week goers. I wonder what the % is in Washington? Those who represent us and who claim, according to our treasured constitution to be good and moral men who acknowledge God in all their ways. The Constitution does say that right? Or is that on the verge of being written out or beeped out too?
Folks, we need to protect and preserve the gifts the Good Lord has blessed the USA with having all these years blessed and now in famine of all sorts here in these here United States.
Do you think it is all because of what we have done or contributed, alone? If you do, you are missing the point our Forefathers so eloquently proclaimed and died and fought for in this here Constitution. You are also missing the purpose of the King (Jesus), riding in on a donkey, proclaiming his message to the people during His entrance into Jerusalem.
Distractions to Holy Sacrament has long overhauled the meaning of life for all who are to be saved from the stunts that are being played to teach you to forget for that which you are entitled to know about; the reason for His coming and His purpose for you. Preserve what makes life count, and that starts with God.
It’s not too late for America to change the path we are headed on, we can stand up and preserve our blessings as a Nation Under God.
Our Forefathers knew this day would come, that’s why they labored over the Constitution with their lives under God. They were praying folks and men and women who Worshiped God that tried their best to secure our future blessings as a Nation. What are the generations of today doing or what can they do if they don’t know the Creator of it all?
Have a blessed week and remember that your litmus test for: preserving the founding principles that God instilled in us to worship and bring him Glory, is to be willing to help folks remember and stand up to those who try to cause others to forget. America, Now is the time to stand true to our Nation built and thriving Under God.
