EARTH LIKE HEAVEN by JONATHAN DAVID & MELISSA HELSER
The dust that we were made of
Is calling us to free them
The earth that we were pulled from
Is crying, “liberate us!”

The dust that we were made of
Is calling us to free them
The earth that we were pulled from
Is crying, “liberate us!”

We won’t be satisfied
‘Till the earth looks just like heaven

We won’t be satisfied
‘Till the earth looks just like heaven

Like the waters cover the sea
Let the earth be filled with Your glory
‘Till the prayers You prayed become reality
And the earth looks just like heaven

We won’t be satisfied
‘Till the earth looks just like heaven
And the prayers You prayed become reality
And the earth looks just like heaven

Wake up you sons and daughters
You were made for so much more
Wake up you sons and daughters
Start singing, creation’s waiting

Your kingdom come, Your will be done
‘Till the earth looks just like heaven
Your kingdom come, Your will be done
‘Till the earth looks just like heaven

Wake up you sons and daughters
You were made for so much more
Wake up you sons and daughters
Start singing, creation’s waiting

She’s not dead, she’s just sleeping
She is waking us
She’s not dead, she’s just sleeping
She is waking us
She’s not dead, she’s just sleeping
She is waking us

She’s not dead, she’s just sleeping
She is waking, waking, waking, oh!

Like the waters cover the sea
Let the earth be filled with Your glory
‘Till the prayers You prayed become reality
And the earth looks just like heaven

After another day where craziness has prevailed, after another senseless terror attack, it is in Him we need to place our hope, our hope that the lost of this world will find His unfailing love.

It Made My Blood Boil

It’s a strange to watch the TV at the moment, everything is dominated by this countries decision to leave the EU. Personally I leaned to the remain side, but having said that I never felt fully informed by ever side what the actual ramifications where for staying or going, I really didn’t know what was best for the country either way. It seemed to me though that much of the argument for the leave side was the immigration issue, that to me seemed the card they pulled out when the arguments got to hard to form.

I’ve just watched a news item where one of our Members of Parliament was discussing the decision, she was firmly on the remain in the EU camp, but she mentioned that around the country she was hearing talk that really hadn’t been heard since the seventies, the racist discussions escalated the more the EU discussion intensified over the last few weeks, she had noticed this and indeed I witnessed it first hand at work on Wednesday, it made my blood boil.

It’s no secret that over the last few years the UK has seen a lot of immigration from the former Communists states as one by one their countries joined the EU and the became eligible to come over here. This has caused resentment in the UK, that’s no secret, but many of these people are hard working individuals just wanting a better life for their families.

My surname is Maliszewski, it’s of Polish origin. My Grandfather was born in Warsaw, Poland, during the Second World War, his family were evicted from their home by the Nazis, they spent time in the Ghettos and Concentration Camps, until they were liberated. My Grandfather had two older brothers and an older sister. When the Russians took control of Poland after liberation, his two brothers were put onto the back of a truck by the Red Army and never heard from again. My Grandfather’s sister arranged for him to escape the country and come over here to England.

He settle just outside of Mansfield. Initially he tried to lie about his age to join the army and fight in what remained of the war, but he didn’t get away with it. He then got a job in Blidworth Coal Mine, until his death in 1982. My Dad says from the day he got here he lived his life as an Englishman, he never spoke Polish, none of my Dad’s siblings know any polish, he only ever spoke English. Dad says he never spoke much about the war, but if there was something on the TV about the holocaust, he just couldn’t hold back the tears, it affected him badly, I guess he had seen enough first hand.

I am proud to be English and British too, but I am proud of my name, I am proud of it’s heritage, I wish I hadn’t been so young when my Grandfather passed away, I was just eight, I didn’t really know him as well as I should, but I just remember he was always happy, always, so I wear his family name with pride.

So at work on Wednesday morning, the talk in the shop got to voting for the EU referendum, I stayed out of the conversation, but I could hear it going on between two of my colleagues, one of them was taking control of the conversation and was forcing her opinions, she got more heated and heated and actually in the end it was only her really talking, I think the others had switched off, it was now a rant rather than a discussion. Increasingly the issue of immigration was being pushed and that this country needed to control the issue. Then she said this….

“I don’t know why we let countries like Slovakia and other like it in this country, they are all horrible people!”

At that point I snapped, I wasn’t taking that, I was shaking and so, so angry, I responded with…

“So all of us that are descended from immigrants, we’re all fucking horrible people too are we!!!”

Apologies for swearing, but I was fuming, this was outright racism and my ancestry was being attacked and I wasn’t standing for it. After all the bible says this….

The good person out of the good treasury of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasury produces evil, for his mouth speaks from what fills his heart. -Luke 6:45

Needless to say the conversation stopped immediately. Others then tried to say they had immigrant descendants too, but none were of the East European, ex Communist regime countries like mine. We never spoke all day, I was shaking, for a while after, I felt like walking out, but I sucked it in and carried on working. I spoke with one of the guys, to explain why I had responded the way I had, that I thought it was out of order and damn right racist to the core. Yesterday, I got on with it, I have spoke to her in a civil tone since and got on with working together, I am bigger than holding grudges and I don’t like confrontation or animosity, I would rather let what had been said be said and get on with things.

But as I watch the decision by this country play out on TV today, I think this racist attitude has been stirred up by the vote out politicians and activists.

What ever the decision today, the country has decided and that is that, we live by that now, I just hope it has been made fully for the right reasons.

I have calmed down a bit now, I’m currently in a hotel room in Crawley, chilling out before a competition tomorrow, oh wait, I retired three years ago, oh hang on I started competing again last year, so National Championships number 32 here we go.
