If you want to help yourself and your family and your town, village or city, your province and all of Canada “a Mari usque ad Mare” . . . . . > . . then invest the time and the effort to fully understand codependency, emotional distancing, Matthew 6.33 and Acts 14.22.
If you get that far, there is more.
I was prompted to investigate emotional distancing last evening and found two sites I will now recommend highly:
1] csmonitor.com Feb 13, 2009, David Code, the real silent killer of marriages is _____. > prevent family problems and divorce . . . . . eh!
2] heartrelationships.com, Neil Rosenthal, overcoming emotional distancing > explore your fears and . . . . . > . . if you can learn to be more open . . . . . and emotionally available . . . . .
> . . you are preparing for the NEXT step in growing up spiritually which is critical.
Please, please take note!
We are warned in Mt. 24.12 that the love of many will grow cold.
“Do you see it?”
In Ephesians Chapter 4, we are told to be no more children, to grow up (spiritually), to put away lying, to speak every man truth with his neighbour and much much more.
“Do you get it?”
A young girl 13 in grade 8 phoned last night. The ladies were “not available”. This girl had had a fight with her best friend at school and almost was expelled over one black eye and one bloody nose. We are not available emotionally for each other and we are surprised when we can’t get along or there is violence in nursing homes and institutions?
We treat each other like dirt and we lie. Still, we expect all the Blessings of a Holy God.
When will we bring up our children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord?
When will we choose to speak truth in love and learn how to serve one another by love??
Now come with me from the school spat of yesterday to an unfolding provincial disaster and a National calamity in the making.
Health care costs in Ontario have risen from 32% of the Provincial budget in 1980 to 42% currently and trending to 50% of the provincial budget along with a $15 Billion debt.
“Like Ontario, other provinces are experiencing similar challenges that are likely to continue into the future.” [direct quote]
An aging population is “a key cost driver” because “health care costs rise significantly after age 65”.

“Now, who has read Deuteronomy 34? akjv?”
Moses was 120 years old and he climbs to the top of Pisgah.
His eye was not dim, nor was his natural force abated.
“Who get’s the picture?”
Of course, Moses knew the LORD face to face . . . . . > . .eh!
“Who get’s the picture now?”
“Any provincial government interested in discovering how to save their fair share of the $55 Billion Dollars or MORE in health care and other related costs?”
