Before my Daddy went to Heaven, I had a lot of invaluable time with him. It wasn’t invaluable because we had deeply wise discussions because he had dementia and gradually lost his memories, recent first and then past. What made it so special was that I got to see who he really was inside and his spirit. He loved Jesus. I know this because even when all his memories were gone, he still talked about Jesus and going to heaven and expressed great morality in his limited speech. And I got to see the pure base of love that God creates in a heart that loves and serves Him long term. It was beautiful. And in being so close to Daddy as his physical body diminished, I saw a renewing and resetting of his spirit, almost like he could see Jesus sometimes and I believe he could. And in my arms, he transitioned over and it was the biggest blessing of my life. I want to keep other older people company who are suck in bed to comfort them and learn and love on them. Older people are such an extreme blessing and what they teach us is worth more than gold. ❤
We Christians have been silenced for so long and most are afraid, which is a pretty good guage of how strong your faith is at the moment definitely. What I mean is, we have been lazy, most of us. We need to speak out with the most radical tools we have, our voice and our love. We must forgive openly and readily. We must serve with live often and fluently. We must voice peace and joy and encouragement on every occasion. And we must do this no matter what. This is the radical example Jesus Christ modeled for us. Love everyone no matter what and so doing speak volumes of truth and power and change things. Love is power. Love is so much stronger than fear or hopelessness or discouragement or pain. Love is the light, the truth and hope for God is love.
So, our kids in public schools and colleges all over the amazing, freedom encouraging, Christian filled United States of America. I survived all the way to a doctorate because my upbringing was so morally Christian and strong and that was still with being bombarded with social drama, bullies, liberal philosophies, discouragement and ridicule at being a Christian, evolution religion posing as fact, and social garbage about how Islam is a “peaceful” religion (bahahaha). None of this is essential for learning what you need to work and be productive, helpful, patriotic adults. It is ridiculous! How are parents saying “Oh well” and sending them anyway to the wolves instead of doing something, speaking against this garbage. They are paying for their kids to be taught an extreme amount of absolute bunk. I am a parent and am outraged by it. So much so that I homeschool my kids. If I were not able to do that, I would demand to evaluate curriculum, evaluate punishments for bullying, require teachers not preach their biases, return the pledge of allegiance and beginning prayer and the 10 commandments. I would fight tooth and nail until our future/children don’t end up confused and misinformed and brainwashed. Consider what your silence is putting your children through. Step up and say something now. It has gone on long enough. We finally have a President who wants our freedom to be free and not indoctrinated and he will help. Let him know your concerns. Demand action from your state leaders. Demand it.
I thought this was extremely beautiful and true and hopeful and wanted to share it. God bless all who love Him and do what is right and stand with Israel! Pray for our President and all those rulers over us who follow God and pray harder that those who don’t will either change their hearts or be severely punished.
Evil is all over the place. From “peaceful” Muslims killing and torturing everyone that isn’t a “peaceful” Muslim, to lying and power hungry agendists speaking lies to divide us and promote everything that is not Christian, to killers and addictions on an all time high. What on earth can we do? What can the Christians do? Well here it is. Ready? Stay close to God. Pray all the time, read the Bible, get our focus right on God. In doing so, we are lights with brilliant pristine truth screaming out into the black and gray so brightly even we have to wear sun glasses. Why am I not afraid? I am God’s child and saved and so Heaven is my home, no matter what happens here. God is in control and will come back soon. Who should be afraid is those choosing evil. They should be terrified because forever in torment in hell awaits them. They can lie to themselves all they want but they will face God, whether they believe it or not. So important to know. We have peace and joy and love and truth because God is our Heavenly Father. We will be with Him forever!!! That is reason to celebrate in anticipation of the end n of all evil!! Stay diligent, stay faithful, draw close to God.
I say it all the time, the church says it. What does it mean? Does it mean He gives us whatever we ask for? Does it mean He blesses us? Does it mean He makes sure we are cared for? This is how many Christian songs are going. “God is good because of what He does for me” seems the theme. I am protesting. God is good because that is what He is. It has nothing to do with us, it is part of His perfect makeup. God is good with or without us and that is what we should focus our praise and worship on. He is good and loving and holy and just and wanting the best and full of hope and grace. God is so good. We are just little people, one of billions of His created children and each is special yes but we need to get out of the grip of the selfish pride of believing we are the most important person out there. That seems a prevailing notion. You see it everywhere. God is the thing. He is so good. We are not. We cannot be good at all apart from Him. What God wants from us is humble faith, conversation, relationship, worship. He is worthy of our full attention and worship and infinitely more. God is so good!
So, in my spare time, I will be working on a quilt for my bed. I have never made anything like that for myself because I thought it was selfish. I still think it is, but it is an avenue for creativity and an artistic work for my hands to keep busy with in spare time. I detest just sitting and doing nothing unless there is a good movie or something. So, I am designing it with materials left over from the quilts I made for my kids (the only quilts I have ever made) and odd fabric I had. I will design a keyboard in it and notes and guitars and drums because it is such a strong part of us. I will have a background of a barn like the one I grew up with. It is an art project. I am excited. So many renovations are being done on the house, it will be nice to not be cold at night with the air conditioner right on me. So I am excited for warmth. And there really is no moral contemplation here except to say that I am very thankful to God for both creativity, supplies, and an outlet to keep me sane in this dry period. And while I work, I am always praying, so that is a beautiful thing for me. I am so thankful. I know it is God who does all good things.
