Jon Stewart is back. The former “Daily Show” host came out of retirement to join his old colleague, Stephen Colbert, on CBS’ “Late Show.”
“You feel that you’re this country’s rightful owners. There’s only one problem with that: This country isn’t yours. You don’t own it. It never was. There is no ‘real America.’
You don’t own it. You don’t own patriotism, you don’t own Christianity, you sure as hell don’t own respect for the bravery and sacrifice of military, police and firefighters. Trust me.

Mercy & Grace
Mercy withholds the knife from the heart of Isaac.
Grace provides a lamb in the thicket.
Mercy runs to forgive the prodigal.
Grace throws a party with a robe, a ring, and a fatted calf.
Mercy hears the cries of the thief on the cross.
Grace promises paradise that very day.
Mercy converts Paul on the road to Damascus.
Grace calls him to be an apostle.
Acts 9:1-6, 17
Mercy keeps us out of Hell.
Grace takes us to heaven.
And the difference between mercy and grace is this . . .
Mercy withholds from us what we deserve.
Grace gives us what we do not deserve.

Stay strong, Dot! You're in my prayers!
