What is wrong with this world!

I have never seen this world in such a mess. I am not talking politics, I mean everyday events that make no sense! Recently I was talking to a friend about the job market. Instead of keeping employees who have worked for a company most of their lives and know their jobs with their eyes closed, they are being fired over answering questions wrong on a piece of paper. They are not promoting within the companies because the life long employees don’t hold two or three degree’s. Yet the companies will hire an outsider who knows nothing about the business because they have degrees. This makes no sense to me!

Graduates with degrees are working for companies starting at pay levels higher than those of long time employees who know the job, but because they don’t hold degrees they aren’t paid the same. Companies will deny this.

Everything that used to be morally wrong is now forgotten and the saying, “do it if it feels good” is the modern day norm. People used to be looked at as important and part of a companies family. Now they are little more than a tool to be used to it’s worn out and offers no new input to further a company’s profit.

It makes me sick to see a good man or woman tossed aside because they can be replaced with what a company sees as having more to contribute. I’m sure that some of the graduates find themselves taking jobs that pay less than they envisioned, especially when they know how much it cost them to get those degrees. How many years it  will take to pay off those student loans and how much more is expected from them than those who don’t possess the degrees. They are expected to move mountains and shake the world up for the benefit of their employers.

The sad part is the many of these company owners have more money than they will spend in a lifetime. They can’t take it with them and when they leave it behind, the relatives may go through it faster than imaginable. So why concentrate on profits instead of people. The only thing worth leaving behind in reality is a good standing with the people. Yes at their death many may go to the funeral, but how many of those are truly there because of what they did while here?


Show us the Christian in you!

What do you do when your car isn’t running right? Do you sit and call it names, make fun of it, throw stones at it? No, you take time to do something to help it work better. If those who spend so much time bashing the president, took even half of that time to pray for him, as the bible says to do, some of the things that don’t work right just might.

Those who claim to be Christians and spend all their time judging, which is God’s job, not ours. If they would take the worry they have about the president to God, they would have more peace and less worry. They would have no time for criticizing, throwing stones or angering friends and neighbors if they were on bent knees.

I found out long ago that no two people are going to see eye to eye. But fighting isn’t the answer, I really don’t think I have to say that. I am sure that even when the stones are flying, inside there is a small voice saying, “Is this really how you should show the Christian side of you? Is it your place to be judge and jury? Well, look yonder, there goes another friend because you can’t keep your opinions to yourself and rather keep things stirred up.”

Friends are precious, hard to come by and if your opinion is worth more than their friendship, there is something wrong! Stating that you don’t care for the president is fine, but beating him and those who like him to death with sarcastic words isn’t.  The old saying, agree to disagree has a lot of meaning behind it. Disagree but do so with respect so you don’t burn bridges that later you will wish you still had. If a friends opinion differs from yours, let him have his and keep politics out of the conversation. In a couple years there will be new people holding the office, but where will your friendship be at that time?


If any among you are blameless, cast the first stone.

04-donald-trump-beleiver.w710.h473Our nation has become a war ground. Not so much from outsiders but from within. A spirit of hatred has consumed our people. President Trump has been a punching bag because he isn’t politically correct and at times is downright blunt. He has lied, made fun of folks and ticked people off. Now, as Jesus said when they brought the woman caught in the act of adultery, those of you who can say I’ve never done any of the above, go ahead and throw the first stone! You can’t, not one of us hasn’t done one of the above in our lifetime.

I have never seen a man so condemned on a daily basis. I know there are many of you who find pleasure in doing this. Are your words more important than that of Jesus?

First Timothy 2:1-2 “First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way.”

Are you praying for wisdom and guidance for our president or are you bashing him? If a person is beaten down all the time, that person will not excel in life. President Trump has been beaten to death because he is different. I am not denying he doesn’t go about things the way we are used to seeing a president do. At times he shocks us with his bluntness. But what we have seen in the past has gotten us nowhere.

Instead of fighting among ourselves, bend a knee and pray for guidance for our president. Life isn’t ever going to give us perfection in a human. Pray for him as hard as you slam him and see what God does. A wise man will take the lemons and make lemonade, a foolish man will toss the lemons out the door. Which are you?

Examine your words and actions. Look in the mirror and what do you see? Is the image you are showing the world any better than that of the president?
As the lord said, “If any among you are blameless, cast the first stone.”

I have sat back and watched the bickering and saw friends divided. Everyone has a right to their beliefs but don’t let beliefs destroy our nation and families. It’s time to make some lemonade and share it with a neighbor.

Love Story

Let me tell you a love story. A kind and gentle man was deeply in love with his bride to be. He put her first in everything he did. He did everything perfectly to prepare for their wedding day.

This man’s name was Jesus. He has been waiting for you, male and female. His bride isn’t perfect though. She has failed many times, but he forgives and forgets. A smile covers His face and His arms are open wide, waiting to embrace you! His ears are listening to hear you say, Jesus, I love you, please forgive my mistakes. I want to share my life with you, I know my life may be short now, I know you have been patiently waiting for me. In Jesus’s eyes, you are now perfect. The bride and groom become one, his righteous has now become yours also.

Jesus from this day forward I will love you with all my heart, mind and soul. For you are now written in my family tree as I am in yours, never to be erased. Jesus, your judgement of me is now over, for by you I am in right standing. My Spirit and your Spirit are united in agreement. I will never be alone, if I fall, my groom will be there to lift me up. I will take one step at a time until it is time to move into my new home with my groom.

Congratulations to us both.
Your bride to be, soon.



B12 and acid reflux

I know some of you can recall me asking if anyone ever tasted some strange taste that you could even smell. No one but you could smell the odor. I had been having some horrible acid reflux and the doctor had put me on meds for it, it still didn’t help. I started taking a 1000 mcg of B12 each night and my acid reflux is almost non existent. I have no idea what it does, but B12 has helped a lot. Just thought I’d share that with you folks.


What are you afraid of?

grim-reaper-656083_960_720 Cats are not the only curious ones, humans are just as bad. We rebel against what science can’t explain and yet we seek it at the same time. We’re afraid and still brave enough to seek after the unexplained.

What are you afraid of? We all have our phobias, mine is drowning. I love the water, yet the thought of drowning makes me cringe.

I’m sure there are some unique fears that I have never entertained. What is yours?


How age changes our wants.

I use to laugh when folks would say, “You just wait till your old, everything changes.” Well, it does, in more ways than one. I use to think this little one horse town had nothing to offer. I wanted to go somewhere exciting, like LasVagas, the town that never sleeps!

I was a product of the baby boomer age. Now at fifty eight, I have a whole new prospect on things. I love peace and quiet, I don’t like to go much, and I’m to tired to care! I seldom wear makeup anymore, when I do I wipe it off because I am so blind I can’t see what I am doing. I figure it probably looks like something Freddie Cougar would do!

I use to say, “If I ever move, it will be somewhere where there isn’t a ton of trees.” Now, I sit on my porch and look at my overgrown wooded area. I watch the birds, squirrels, chipmunks, ground hogs and raccoons playing in them. I have my own little piece of paradise.

I use to be jealous of friends with tons of friends. Now all I want is my select few and my family. My wish list has gotten smaller, the only thing I wish for now is a healthy and happy family.

There is something to be said about growing older, you don’t take things as seriously as you did in youth. The hair doesn’t have to be perfect, the body can have a few extra pounds, you can say ALMOST what you want and folks just think you’re senile! You get senior discounts and someone to help  you load your groceries if you look like your struggling enough.
