I never would have thought that one little 5 letter word could be responsible for so many things. Probably would be actually unbelievable of all the things a 6 or 7 letter word could be a symptom of.

 

A White Privilege Check

This is from Facebook. My answer is the last section of this post.

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

There was a poster that suggested doing a white privilege check. It said to reply only if you are white and have worked since you were a kid. It was posted by Annie Kay on June 8 at 10:47 AM.

Started babysitting when I was 10 or 11 years old. Have loved children ever since then. Was on the work study program when I was in the business college. And started working at The United Communities Fund in Norfolk, Virginia within two weeks after I graduated from the business college. I and worked in Virginia until I moved to Kentucky when I got married in 1974, and in Kentucky, until I became disabled and lost both my permanent full time job with a bank, and my permanent part time job with a security guard company. That was June 9, 1990. Once i got stabilized on my medicine, I went to a community college and after graduation started another bank job. It lasted from March of 2000 until November of 2004. I haven’t worked since then other than a few volunteer jobs. . I have done volunteer work at four nursing homes during the years, where I was either just spending time with the patients and reading to them, or I was feeding the patients and helping with other personal duties for them. So, you see, I have tried to keep going until just these past two years. My last surgery and has just about stopped me in my tracks. I now have a caregiver 5 hours a day Monday through Saturday each week. The surgeries that I still need to have in the future have been put on hold indefinitely.

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.

There was a poster that listed several good things to do for one’s Mom. And it stated to do it “Just because she’s your MOM! It was posted by “Cindy Moore White”

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.”

Your Mind Is A Garden

This was on Facebook.

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

There was a poster of some flowers and some weeds. On the poster it stated that, “Your mind is a garden. Your thoughts are the SEEDS. You can grow flowers or you can grow WEEDS.

 

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

This gives you something to think about. Obviously your way of thinking determines if you will have flowers or seeds. All of the good and kind thoughts and deeds are the FLOWERS, and the mean and angry thoughts are the SEEDS. As for me, I’m going to try to grow flowers.

There Are Still Some Good Children Left In Today’s Society

This was on Facebook. I had to re-post it here.

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

 Based in Sweden1d

 

”So we go to Walmart today, and Lakken happens to see an elderly man that was having a hard time shopping and finding things due to him not being able to lift his head up and see straight.
He can see the ground and barely the sides of him, so Lakken looks at me and goes, ‘Aunt Ry can I please help him?’
I said, ‘Yes.’
My nephew went up to the man and asked him if he would like some help. His eyes lit up and said, ‘Well, yes that would be amazing young man, thank you so much.’
Lakken was running all over the place for this man and he was so happy. The man told us he hasn’t had help in years, and he was so happy he ran into an amazing smart young man like Lakken! I was so proud of him!
Lakken went and helped him check out and bag his stuff as well and had them call the show bus.
The man tried to tip Lakken and my nephew said, ‘Oh thank you but I don’t need this. I enjoyed helping you, you keep your money’.
I’m beyond proud of my nephew Lakken. You don’t see or get many people, let alone children, who do these things for people.”

Your nephew sure is a great young man. He will go far in this world. He has obviously been brought up right. Thank you for posting this. This should go viral, but it probably won’t. It seems that the news is only interested in posting about the pandemic and resulting riots. How sad things are going today when I compare them to when I was growing up in the 50s and 60s! I wish the older man and your nephew only the best.

In The Bible…….

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

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

Image may contain: 1 person, standing and beard, text that says 'AMEN IN THE BIBLE THERE IS NO WHITE OR BLACK CHURCH. JESUS DID NOT COME TO SAVE SKIN BUT TO SAVE SOULS!'

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

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.

When your gardener is an artist..!! 🌲🌳🌱🌿😍😮

These are some of the most unique and amazing trees and/or bushes I have ever seen!!

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

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!!

Groundbeef Hack

This is a great idea. Will have to try it next time I get ground beef. It just makes sense that the thinner something is, when it’s put in the freezer, the sooner it will thaw out when you want to use it.

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.
