A Look Back on 2013

My goals for 2013 were to adapt and I believe I have finally done that towards the ending of this year.  That is adapting to the new baby and how that changed all our lives!  My son has changed me as a person just as my daughter did and I've learned that God gives us children to change us and make us better.  I wonder what I would be without them, it is an alarming thought because my children have made me a better person.  With each one that has come, there is more refining done and the selfishness I once used to be full of is but a fading memory. I would have to say that this was the year of..... LETTING GO .  I learned to let go of the perfectionism that ruled me and to let things be - physically, mentally and even spiritually.  Just a few weeks ago, I started to learn to let go of something I've been carrying around for a long time that has done damage on me but I feel it is time to be delivered fully.  I've learn to let go of what others thought that we should be

Why Don't You Just Shut Up!?

The world, society and Satan all say the same things these days: "Why don't you just shut up?"  On the one hand, the world and society do not want to hear about God and what is right and wrong.  On the other, Satan doesn't want you to share it with anyone.  Both of them want Christians to just shut up! Don't push your religion on me.  You think you are holier than thou because you go to church every week.  It's not your business who I marry.  Keep your opinions to yourself.  America isn't a Christian nation anymore. Are you being told any of those things?   If you are an ambassador for Christ, a representative of God, then you no doubt get your share of the "won't you just shut up" phrases, no matter how they are worded .  No one wants to hear it anymore.  They don't want to hear that homosexuality is sin and perverse.  They don't want to hear that you should live right.  They don't want to be told to not forsake the assemblin

On Women's Rights, Pants, Careers & Abortion

I just completed a study on women's rights AND the history of clothes.  You may be asking why study both of those together?  Well, because the one begat the other.   The women's rights movement brought about the acceptance of women wearing men's clothing; pants .  It also brought about bobbed hair, cut short like a man and women doing men's jobs.  The push for women's rights in essence was the push to be what its' heroines called "equal" rights with men, when in reality it was to become just like men. However, becoming like a man or as they say it, "equal" to men, didn't bring ENOUGH satisfaction.  They had to be above men and to take the reigns from man, so to speak.  Truly the phrase, "she wears the pants in the family," was indicative of women who domineered over their husbands and something so very much desired by the advocates of women's rights.   It was never about being equal, it was about being out from under man&#
