Just Because She’s Your Mom

This was on Facebook. I have always tried to respect her and do what she told me to do.

Growing up, I always tried to respect and obey my Mother. Even when I was being corrected, I respected her, because I know she was doing it to correct me for something that I was doing that was either dangerous or wrong to do. She always taught us children to love God, Jesus, our families, our friends, respect older people, don’t say bad words. treat other people like we wanted to be treated, and behave by not acting silly all of the time. We were taught to say the grace before every meal, and to say our prayers before we went to bed. We were also taught to say “Please” and “Thank You”, or “No Thank you, but, thank you for asking.” People we new always got hugs before we left, when we said :Good Bye:.  In other words, we were brought up right, and I thank my Mother daily for it. We were not left out just to fend for our self like a lot of children today are. When I stop to think about all of the stuff my Mother taught us, I thank her every day, no matter where ai am at the time.

The Bible tells us, “Children, obey your parents that their days may be long upon this earth.”

To Some There Is No Difference In Skin Color

This was on my Facebook. It showed that to children, color doesn’t matter. One was Caucasian, the little boy, and the other was African American, the little girl. It was the sweetest picture I have seen in a long time.

*************************************************************************************************

“My daughter and I are in Myrtle Beach taking a sunset walk when this adorable and sweet little boy comes walking right up to her. He shares with her the shark tooth around his neck. He tells her his name and asks her name to which she tells him. They part ways while saying goodbye, walking in the opposite direction. A few minutes later he comes running back, in what seems to be in slow motion, yelling out my daughter’s name. She turns around and is greeted by his smile. So they share a few words, mainly about his super cool shark’s tooth that apparently gave him powers 🙂 Before they walked, talked and raced, I asked his mother for permission to take this picture and this was the result. No one positioned them, told them to smile and there was absolutely no hesitation on their part at all. When we finished walking and it was time to go they hugged for a long time and exchanged about 20 “goodbyes.” This is a moment that we humans understand as just simply seeing no color lines, no judgement, no race, no hate, no shades. It’s just pure….two kids meeting on a sunset walk without a care in the world…all they saw was each other. This world would be a much better place if we acted like these two kids.”

This is what I have tried to get across to adults several times here lately. If only we adults could be as honest and truly interested in each other’s friendship instead of beating each other down, then the world would be so much better off. After all, “WE ARE ALL CREATED EQUAL!!!!!” These two precious children know it without even knowing what they are doing. Like the post said, they don’t see color, they only see the possibility of having another friend, and the friendship could last a lifetime! Wouldn’t that be sweet for these two children full of such brotherly love with no boundaries. Thank you, whoever, for posting this. And to this, I want to add, LOVE IN CHRIST!

Jesus was not

This was from Facebook. It may not be a long poster, but it’s message is profound. Read it and decide for yourself.

*************************************************************************************************

*************************************************************************************************

There is nothing I can add or say that would make the message change in any way. We can’t put God the Father, God the Holy Ghost, and Jesus Christ the Son of God into any mold what so ever and make it be true. The Holy Trinity, as they are called, is omnipotent, that means that He can be everywhere at one time, because, “NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR HIM.” We only have to do two things for it to come true. We have to have Faith enough to know that it is true, and not to let anything that will cause you to doubt that fact come into your mind. Once we believe it, then we need to Share it with others, especially with the non-believers.

If we profess our faith before others, Jesus will profess us before God The Father of us all. And if we don’t profess our faith to Jesus, then we will be cast aside at the gates of Heaven because Jesus will not profess that we are Christians before God, and we will not be professed before God the Father. Just think about it very seriously. I am a Child of God, and God has me in His hands. Once I am in God’s hands nothing can pluck me out of them.

In The Bible…….

This was on Facebook, and I feel the same way as this man does.

*************************************************************************************************

God does not care about the color of our skin. He cares if we love Him and have asked Him into our hearts, and whether or not we will follow His teachings. To God our skin color is not an issue. The Bible tells us that we are all created equal, and in His image. To me, that means that no one color is better than the other, or worse than the other. We are just the same. Being created equal means we all have the following in our bodies: a brain, a heart, two eyes, two ears,a tongue, a mouth, an esophagus, a throat, tonsils, a stomach, a liver, large intestines and small intestines(bowels), a spleen, two kidneys, a pancreas, a pelvis, two arms and hands, two legs and feet, a gallbladder, and a bladder. To top it all off, “WE ALL BLEED RED WHEN WE ARE SCRATCHED OR PUNCTURED WITH A SHARP OBJECT.”

Being created equal, we should treat each other like brothers and sisters, because that’s what we are. We are brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. When we see a brother or sister in trouble or in need, we should try to help them out the best we can. The “Golden Rule” in the Bible is in Matthew 7:12, and Luke 6:31. In Matthew 7:12 it is written: “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you; do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. … shall also do to them; for this is the law and the prophets.” It doesn’t actually say “The Golden Rule.”, that’s just what it has come to be known as, how everybody that says anything refers to it as.If another person is down in the road hurt and needing help, we are supposed to help the man, or get help to him. If another man is sick or injured and needing someone to help him with daily life, we are to go to him and help him with meals, medicines, bathing, and feeding him, whether he is actually a brother or not one, we are still to help him.

In telling us to do this, it doesn’t say to only help someone of your same color or nationality, it says to help your neighbor in whatever way he needs help.” in the Bible there is a section stating specifics, it is; Matthew 25:36 – “Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye … did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You something to drink? … widows in their distress, and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. … Good men, if they could not obtain release of prisoners, might comfort and …”

 

 

An Artist Work For All To See

These are from Facebook. Wow, these are tremendous looking shrubs, trees, bushes. The artist is a genius. I love the great work and time that was spent on them.

And yes, a picture is worth a million words. Don’t believe me, just look at these pictures. They are magnificent. I don’t think that there is any way to say that these trees are not beautiful and so very unique.

Rescue Saves Injured Puppy

This was on Facebook. And I have very strong feelings about the particular subject of animal abuse.

*************************************************************************************************

I would be lying if I said that late at night, I didn’t have awful thoughts as to what I would do to the people who commit such crimes.’

Rescue saves puppy with shattered jaw and blown off nose after explosives went off in his mouth.

*************************************************************************************************

I have always said that it would serve the abuser right, if whatever they do to any animal in the way of abuse was done to them. For example, if someone drags a dog around behind a truck with a chain around its’ neck until it dies, then the person should be drug around behind a truck with a chain, but just short of the person dying. But if someone is actually going to do this, then they need to have the dead dog’s body in the vehicle with them, to be able to show the law just what the person did to the dog. Only difference being that the person gets to recover and live out his life, whereas the poor animal is dead.

Animal abuse should be a felony. The only time an animal should be killed is if they are injured so badly that they won’t make it to the vet, or the vet can’t make it to them, for them to be humanely put to sleep. If animal abuse carried stronger punishments, then maybe there wouldn’t be so much of it rampant in America. The common census states that child abuse often starts in the teen years with animal abuse being the first phase. Later that leads to child abuse, and child abuse often leads to killing adults. The Bible says an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. This goes for people, but it should also go for animals.

There have even been some teenage boys that went so low as to video the abuse and then get a group of friends to view it together so that they can laugh at the animal writhing in pain. Now how sick is that? I’m usually a pretty easy going person, but when it comes to child abuse or animal abuse, I get very angry and say what I feel. Hopefully both kinds of abuse will be treated more seriously by the media and the local authorities that punish the abusers!!

DIY – Painting Acorns

This was on Facebook. Something fun for adults and children. It will keep the children occupied for a little while at least.

DIY – painting acorns.

*************************************************************************************************

This is a really fun thing for families to do together. The best part is that they are your own creation, in that there is no wrong or right way to do it. Whatever you see in that acorn, or want it to look like, is up to you. So find some acorns, get some water based paints for the children, and oil based paints for the adults, and get started.

You Should Wear A Mask

This was from Facebook. This article is very informative about the wearing of face masks. I think it would benefit everybody to read it.

*************************************************************************************************

Yes, You Should Wear a Mask. Here’s How and Why

July 14, 2020 9:15 AM

Properly wearing a mask or cloth face covering can help keep you safe while navigating the COVID-19 pandemic.

As cases of COVID-19 begin to spike again across the country, it’s important to stay steadfast in helping prevent further spread of the virus. While you should continue to wash your hands, cover your coughs and sneezes, avoid touching your face and follow social distancing rules, wearing a mask is an additional step you should also take to stay safe. Here’s why:

As we’ve learned throughout this pandemic, the most common way COVID-19 spreads is through person-to-person contact. When an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks, they produce respiratory droplets that can travel about six feet and can land in the mouths or noses of those nearby. COVID-19 can also be spread by people who don’t know they have the virus since they aren’t experiencing any symptoms. Because of this, the Centers for Disease Control recommend wearing masks or cloth face coverings to help slow the spread of the virus. As of July 13, this recommendation became a requirement for those in the state of Michigan as Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed an executive order requiring mask use in all indoor public spaces.

“Wearing a mask is recommended when we are indoors with others and can’t reliably maintain the six-foot social distancing rules,” says Amanda Valyko, MPH, the director of infection prevention and epidemiology for Michigan Medicine. “In these circumstances, a mask can add an extra layer of protection.”

To make sure you are properly protected, there are some things you should and should NOT do when wearing a mask or cloth face covering:

  • Choose a mask that doesn’t have a valve or other openings in it.
  • Make sure it covers your face from the bridge of your nose down to your chin.
  • Try to fit it snugly against the sides of your face, making sure there are no gaps.
  • Make sure you can breathe easily through it.
  • Wash it regularly using water and a mild detergent; dry it completely in a hot dryer; store it in a clean container or bag.
  • Do not allow it to slip under your nose and don’t wear it on your forehead or around your neck.
  • Do not put it on a child younger than 2, anyone who has trouble breathing or anyone who is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove it without assistance.
  • Do not touch the inside of it, as it may be contaminated from your breathing, coughing or sneezing.
  • Do not share it with others in your household without washing and drying it first.

While wearing a mask may not keep you from getting COVID-19, it can help lower the odds. If you’re sick, a mask can help keep your germs from infecting others. If you’re healthy, a mask can help keep respiratory droplets from someone who is sick from landing in your nose and mouth. While we can’t quantify how effective it is to wear a mask, we do know it offers some protection while not wearing one offers none. In short, we are all at the lowest risk when everyone wears a mask.

Despite the CDC’s recommendations, there is one big myth out there about the safety of wearing a mask – that it causes you to breath in dangerous amounts of carbon dioxide. “For those who can medically tolerate wearing a mask, there is no science to support claims that wearing a mask can harm you,” says Valyko. “Health care workers wear masks and respirators daily, often for extended periods of time, without incident. While it may be uncomfortable, this is how we can help protect one another from COVID-19.”

There is still so much to learn about COVID-19 but, as we all venture back out to restaurants and stores and re-join our families for birthdays and anniversaries this summer, it’s important to make wearing a mask a priority.

“We are all in this together and wearing a mask helps protect you and everyone around you, especially those who are at the highest risk,” says Valyko.

Hope For The Broken Hearted

*************************************************************************************************

God is awesome, and He can do anything and everything that anybody and everybody may think is impossible. The word, IMPOSSIBLE, is not even in His vocabulary. It’s not possible for anything to be impossible for God. Just reread the things above and you will realize that what I am saying is true. When God is in your life, nothing is impossible to you. Once God The Father, Jesus Christ-The Son, and The Holy Ghost are in your heart, that means that  you are then, and always will be, a Child Of God. Once you are a child of God, nothing and nobody can ever pluck you out of His hands!!!

A Stolen Can Of Peaches

This was on Facebook. I guarantee at the end, you will laugh.

Senior Shoplifter
A cranky older woman “in her senior years” was arrested for shoplifting at a grocery store. She gave everyone a hard time, from the store manager to the security guard to the arresting officer who took her away. She complained and criticized everything and everyone throughout the process.
When she appeared before the judge, the judge asked her what she had stolen from the store.
The lady defiantly replied, “Just a stupid can of peaches you old fool.”
The judge then asked why she had done it.
She replied, “I was hungry and forgot to bring any cash to the store.”
The judge asked how many peaches were in the can.
She replied in a nasty tone, “Nine! But why do you care about that?”
The judge answered patiently, “Well, ma’am, because I’m going to give you nine days in jail — one day for each peach.”
As the judge was about to drop his gavel, the lady’s long-suffering husband raised his hand slowly and asked if he might speak.
“Yes sir, what do you have to add?”
The husband said meekly, “Your Honor, she also stole two cans of peas.”

At first I was surprised about the whole thing. However after the judge passed his sentence on the woman, you just have to laugh at what the husband told the judge.
