Before I begin, I am not writing this post to debate, go over facts, opinions, pros, cons or anything like that. I am simply a woman ... a Christian woman tired of seeing and hearing other Christians fighting and looking like morons because they insist on posting constant negatives. Newsflash: GOD KNOWS Obama is president...and ALLOWED it! (see Scripture below) “Everything in the heavens and earth is Yours, O Lord, and this is Your kingdom. We adore you as being in control of everything. Riches and honor come from you alone, and you are the Ruler of all mankind; Your hand controls power and might, and it is at Your discretion that men are made great and given strength” - I Chronicles 29:11-12 The truth is that there are pros and cons to any side you are on. The truth is that if you are a child of the King of Kings, Obamacare should not have your feathers ruffled. It is what it is. The fact is, it has been passed as law. Regardless of whether you think Obama is a socialist, a … [Read more...]
First and Lasts for a Mother’s Child
Warning: Many, many tears were shed writing this. Please understand this is coming from a broken heart, so it may not be as elegantly written as others! Mother’s Day is right around the corner. For me this is a bittersweet holiday that I am learning to celebrate in a different way. I have always been one of those moms who cherish each first in a child’s life. My kids’ baby books are filled with “first smile”, “first steps”, “first tooth”…all the way up to “first day of work”. And yes, I cried at all of these momentous occasions! A few years ago, however, I read a children’s book by my favorite Christian author Karen Kingsbury. In this book she celebrated not a child’s “firsts”, but their “lasts”: “last” first day of Preschool, “last” time at bat for Little League, “last” first day of senior year. I read this book to Alana and Caleb and cried so hard that they could barely understand the words! It was so sad for me to think of all the “lasts” I had already missed and I made a … [Read more...]
What are your thoughts on Harry Potter and other Witchcraft Entertainment?
Before I begin, each week we have a discussion. Sometimes they may be controversial. However, I want to make it clear that NONE are going to become a mean spirited type of discussion. We are all sisters in Christ and we should act accordingly. If ANYONE posts a mean come back or has the profound need to force others to believe what they believe to the point of arguing, their comments will be deleted and never again approved on this site. So play NICE! OK…on to the discussion part… What are your thoughts on Harry Potter and other Witchcraft Entertainment? Again...BE RESPECTFUL and KIND in your responses or you will be banned from the site. Period. I will be doing a devotional on this in early 2011 on witchcraft, and I thought it would be a good discussion topic to see where my Christian Mom readers are at on this topic. Please know that I have a VERY clear and STRONG view on this topic and have wrote several pieces on it already. However, I am … [Read more...]
