get ready to rumble...
Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson told his “700 Club” viewers that divorcing a spouse with Alzheimer’s is justifiable because the disease is “a kind of death.”
“I know it sounds cruel, but if he’s going to do something, he should divorce her and start all over again, but make sure she has custodial care and somebody looking after her,” Robertson said.
Fall is finally starting to make an appearance around these parts. Over night, the weather went from summer to not, summer. The skies turned gray, the sun disappeared and the rain came. Just like that, summer was over.
let's get ready to rumble... we all know that means football, here you come but I think you could make a case for a bigger life lesson.
Life is a big rumble. We don't know what specifically is coming, most of the time. Our lives can change in a minute. The sun can be gone in an instant and the dark skies move in, seeming to dig in for the long haul. No promises, no whistle blowing, no ref calling the shots.
I will not say what ran through my mind when I first heard this but yes, it does rhyme with cupid. I once worked with a man who when his wife got sick, packed her and her stuff up and left her on her mother's front porch. As you could imagine, it was difficult to be nice to him.
This has nothing to do with Jesus. There are legit reasons to leave a spouse but late in life, onset sickness isn't one of them. We are always hearing Stories of couples who have had a tragedy before their wedding and they go on to honor the commitment they made. They are the Real Thing. The Road less traveled. What PR is talking about is people behaving badly. If this is your mindset, you are headed for a heap of trouble throughout your life. Get ready to rumble in Real Life, in the long run - it will make you the best you, you can be.
