God & Santa Wear Coats Of Many Colours!

AGODAN

Once again some one’s Momma never told them, if you have nothing nice to say, shut your pie hole, or they have ignored that good advice.

I am so tired of ignorant adults, for using God, as a reason for the fight, to justify theirs, saying cause God would want it that way, or they have to defend God. But now to play on the emotions of children has gone to far.

Megyn Kelly of Fox News said,

“For all you kids watching at home, Santa just is white, but this person is just arguing that maybe we should also have a black Santa,” Kelly said on Wednesday. “But Santa is what he is, and just so you know, we’re just debating this because someone wrote about it.”“We continually see St. Nick as a white man in modern-day America,” Kelly continued. “Should that change? Well, that debate got lost because so many couldn’t get past the fact that I acknowledged, as Harris did, that the most commonly depicted image of Santa, does, in fact, have white skin.”

Please tell me that she honestly believes a 5-10 year old child is going to understand what she is saying?.. Noooo, all they hear is that something is wrong with Santa’s skin because it is white.

Children do not care what the color of happiness is! To a child, Happiness is Jesus and his birthday because that is why Santa brings gifts to all the children. It is about Unconditional Love!

A child is not born with a thought of malice, hate or racism. All they know is love. Any pain they experience, they will ask why, because all they know is it hurts.

The same thing goes with people on face book who are continually posting crap against presidents and prime ministers..in the name of GOD!

I am sorry but as far as I am concerned, God does not want anyone judging others and he is quite capable of defending himself at the end of the day. I don’t need to be condemned for my beliefs because some man thinks I am wrong and that God would want him to tell me so. That is pure bullshit!

So if you  use God as your defence for harm or hurt of any kind, please know  I shall be on the offence.

If you use Santa as another reason to raise chaos, please know I shall defend the rights and feelings of any child, safe guarding them from your crap when I can.

Get over yourself! Learn what unconditional love means..

The search for acceptance is an extremely powerful, natural God-given drive. Accept our neighbours difference, accept a child just wants to be happy. Stop judging in the name of God, because you don’t have the power to do so!

James 2:10 – “Pointing fingers is wrong. Whenever you point your finger at someone else, there are 3 fingers pointing back at you! Don’t be a hypocrite. You’re just as big a sinner as anyone else!”

Luke 6:37 – “Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven.” –

God Is Able!

A Vet Changes Attitude

abutty1

Eating my sandwich, looking at my tree that I will decorate when I am done my lunch and checking out the news feed on my face book account, I noticed something. Facebook has this little thing now they call, See Your 2013 Year In Review. Look back at your 20 biggest moments from the past year.

Which got me thinking, not so much about the year 2013, but over the years. So much has happened, some good, some bad, but all a learning experience, it being up to me to figure out exactly what the lesson was.

Then I remembered a phone call I got this morning from a great forever friend, that come all the way from Minnesota to meet me in person a few years back, Butty.

Butty is his nickname and I won’t give out his real name, because it is not so much a persons name that we do recall it is how that person made us feel. Butty is a Vietnam vet, he told me some stories of being over there back in the day and he also told me a few things that really makes a person think.

He said when he was fighting in that war, a soldier seen his enemy approaching, heard him coming and could look him in the eyes. But today, with all the technology, the soldier does not see or hear their enemy approaching, which he describes as being mind bending and stating no wonder these young men come home needing so much help mentally. One can only imagine spending months at time during a tour to be stalked by someone you can not see. It made me want to cry just to hear that and my heart goes out to them. I don’t care what anyone says about any armed forces being where they think they shouldn’t be because at the end of the day, it is because of that soldier you are able to sleep at night and not worry about who is watching you, that you can not see.

Butty set me straight about a lot of things I was dealing with emotionally at the time. When he first said this to me, my defences rose.. “Missy Lou, you need change your attitude.”. (Butty always and still does call me Missy Lou) I asked him what he meant by that comment. And he proceeded to tell me. He said, we can do nothing about how other people treat us or see us as a person, the only thing we can do, is respect and love yourself enough to know that you are doing your best and if a change has to be made, make it with you and watch your world change for the better or as it should be.

That was hard to do back then and it took me quite a while to make it a part of who I am, but it worked and the person, that changed did take effect with, was my father. Yes Dad passed over before all that was good could evolve for my change of attitude, but I know that Dad loved me very much and  he knew how much I loved him. He is one of my spirit guides today. I feel him near always and for that, I have to thank Butty. Because if I did not open my heart to my father when he was alive I don’t know if I could of once he passed.

There was one evening, Butty and I were listening to some classic rock music as we played cribbage. A song by CCR began and of course who can not sing along with CCR. Butty asked me if I knew what they were talking about in the song, Have You Ever Seen The Rain? I didn’t really, so he explained.

The

[Chorus]
I want to know, have you ever seen the rain
I want to know, have you ever seen the rain
Comin down on a sunny day

Is about the bullets  being fired from a Vietnam war gunner ship aka helicopter . The rain being the bullets you can see even on a sunny day.

There is a few more stories Butty shared with me and also gave me great advice to live by. He is not physically well these days and I will forever keep him in my prayers and thoughts. He is one of those friends that you will NEVER forget or want to forget.

My life has been touched in so many ways by people as unique as Butty, another being The Wizard and Bear, all soldiers/vets/heroes of wars past. (again using their nicknames, because it is not the name the matters, it is the person)

Thanks for being an influentual part of my life Butty. Much Love always!

So if you are going to remember the past, remember it fondly, because of the past you are the person you are today and if you don’t like who that person is, change from within.

God Bless Us All

 

 

She’s My Best Friend

This post I dedicate to my friend.. Karen XO

A woman needs important things in her life, but there is one thing she really needs that is not a thing at all.. Best Friends. There are some who don’t know how to be a best friend, but like everything else in this life, some day even they will learn what it means to be a best friend.

Maya Angelou has so many words of wisdom. Here is one of those. It is called..

What Every Woman Should Have……..        Do you?

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE …. enough money within her control to move out and rent a place of her own even if she never wants to or needs to…

 A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE …. something perfect to wear if the employer or date of her dreams wants to see her in an hour…

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE … a youth she’s content to leave behind….

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE …. a past juicy enough that she’s looking forward to retelling it in her old age….

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ….. a set of screwdrivers, a cordless drill, and a black lace bra…

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE …. one friend who always makes her laugh… and one who lets her cry…

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE …. a good piece of furniture not previously owned by anyone else in her family…

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE …. eight matching plates, wine glasses with stems, and a recipe for a meal that will make her guests feel honored…

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE …. a feeling of control over her destiny…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW… how to fall in love without losing herself..

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW… how to quit a job, break up with a lover, and confront a friend without ruining the friendship…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW… when to try harder… and when to walk away…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW… that she can’t change the length of her calves, the width of her hips, or the nature of her parents…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW… that her childhood may not have been perfect…but it’s over…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW… what she would and wouldn’t do for love or more…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW… how to live alone… even if she doesn’t like it…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW… whom she can trust, whom she can’t, and why she shouldn’t take it personally…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW… where to go… be it to her best friend’s kitchen table… or a charming inn in the woods… when her soul needs soothing…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
what she can and can’t accomplish in a day…
a month…and a year…

If not on this list, is there something you think every woman should have or know?

A beautiful song by Carole King.. You Just Call!

 

Born To Be Your Gaurdian Angel

angellove

While we are here on this earth we are in the human body form and when someone we or someone we love passes over, they once again become spirit, leaving us wanting and missing what their human form gave while they were here on earth.

Of course we miss the sound of the voice, the touch of the hand, the scent of their skin. And if we focus on those 3 sensations alone, we are missing completion. Who we are completely, who we were from the beginning, even before we took our first breath of life on earth. Spiritually complete. There are times when I write that I wonder if what I say is like a foreign language. Only because it is hard to explain something at times that you have experienced and because it is not visable in solid matter, others can be skeptic.

 We need to realize we are never alone, that those who passed over are now guardian angels. And these angels are from our long family history. Great grandparents to parents, siblings and friends alike today. Even those who have set pets to rest, they are animal spirit guides.

I have experienced again and again, where I have prayed to those who have passed over and my prayers are answered, always. That is exactly what they want to hear, for each of us to call out to them. They can not help if not asked. Ask and you shall receive, I can not say that enough. We are here of free will and we just need to will their company , their assistance and they come forward manifesting exactly what we are asking for. Sometimes their answers will come from other people around us and it is not coincidence that John or Alice has an answer for you, to the question you asked of an angel or spirit guide.

I do not write this post for the fun of writing a post, it is my actual belief and my experience.

Learning to open our hearts is the beginning to living a life of contentment here on earth knowing that those who have passed over are still very near. Our souls and spirits live in a place where there is NO time. So don’t worry, we are never too late to ask for help.

One of my favorite songs regarding being someones Gaurdian Angel.. enjoy!

 

Doing More Expecting Less

~This post & music I dedicate to my little sister, Lorey, who always gives unselfishly.~

Time Passes On

Since I started pursuing my writing passion, there has been many times I have asked out loud, where am I going with this? And I have other people ask why I have not published anything?

I can honestly say, I have no answer to either of those questions, I actually draw a blank, but the unknown does not stop me from writing or worry me, if I will ever be published.

Once we start poising questions in our minds, there is someone who begins to answer them, God, our Higher Power. Well, for me he does each and every time I ask. Some times the answer her gives may not be clear, but there comes a time when I am not paying attention, that it will hit me, that’s the answer.

We, women, have come from a long line of hopes and dreams, sometimes broken hopes and dreams. But we carry on, for what ever reason, we just do. And I am sure over the years these few words have come from a few of you lady’s mouths, “why me Lord, what am I to do with this?” – I did and I do, ask that question many times and I have this past week.

I have come across a book, online, that I want to read, it is by Francine Rivers and it’s called, A Lineage Of Grace. Here is the description of it.

The stories of the five unlikely women who changed eternity. Tamar, betrayed by the men who controlled her future, she fought for her right to believe in a loving God. Rahab, a woman with a past to whom God gave a future. Ruth, who gave up everything, expecting nothing, and God honoured her. Bathsheba, whose beauty stirred the passion of a king, and whose pain moved the heart of God. Mary, who responded in simple obedience to God’s call. Each was faced with extraordinary —even scandalous— challenges, each took great personal risk to fulfill her calling, and each was destined to play a key role in the lineage of Jesus Christ.”

shae

To me it sounds like it will be a great read and may answer a few of my questions or why else would I have stumbled up it?

As a mother, loving dearly, my children, I don’t ask why, and didn’t ask why when I went through hard times with them. It was what it was at the time and we moved forward, on a positive note. And that was by not focusing on the problem but focusing on a solution. Which each and every time, being the right answer.

Have faith in God, he will get us through it, each and every time.
