Bbrrr

It has been too cold. Stupid groundhog.  My skin is so dry form the cold air. I feel like I am about to scratch my skin off.  OMG I need relief! Please dear baby Jesus, send some warm winds our way and push this cold spell back to Canada. Between the dry skin and this damn static I am going crazy. I have a constant electrical charge going on..... Km piping and zapping everything and everybody. Normally I find this amusing but with these extreme temperatures the zaps are fierce and painful.

Fat Tuesday

As some of you know today is fat Tuesday, referring to the practice of the last night of eating richer, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten season, which begins on Ash Wednesday. Lent last for 40 days. The time from Ash Wednesday to the time Christ died on the cross.
He did not come to condemn us.  He did not come to show us our sins, that is what the Law is for. He did not come to instill hate for the leper, the beggar, the drunk, the homosexual, the prostitute, the tax collector, the thief, the murder, the rapist, the lame, the orphans, the widows. These are the very same people he stayed with and ministered to, he loved them he accepted them, he cared for them.
We are supposed to love each other as he has loved us. Love your neighbor as you love yourself. He came to forgive, to give hope, to give acceptance to ALL people whether we like it or not. We as Christians are supposed to show God's love to all. 
As we come upon the season of Lent I hope everyone will take the time to meditate on God's love for you and reflect on your own life on how you can show Gods love for others through you.

Motivation

Ugh, I feel like I've lost all motivation for life. I don't know whats wrong with me lately, I just feel so freakin lazy. I feel like such a lardass. Ever since I quit smoking I have gained massive weight. So I joined the gym. Now I feel like I'm slacking on that. Well, to me its massive. I don't want to study for my class, heck I can barley make myself read the chapter. I have not skated since July of 2014. I never went with out skating for this long. My legs have probably lost all muscle mass from not skating. ugh. I think I've lost my MOJO. I don't' want to do anything but stay home and watch Netflix.
Maybe because I have been so busy these last few years its my minds way of saying, "Ok bitch its time to slow your roll".



This is how I have been feeling

Marriage Equality

This week has been history in the making. On February 9, 2015, Alabama was the 37th state to allow same sex marriages. I never thought in a million years thought I would see the day this would happen here. I am excited for my friends and for the people that have been denied legal rights for their loved ones. Nothing makes me happier than seeing two people in love. I hate that there are still people who want to strike down someone else just because they are different or have different beliefs. I am really ashamed of these Christians using hate and even tearing down the LBGT community to prove their point. I know its not all Christians doing this but its the majority. When you tear someone down and spread hate, you are not helping your cause. I was baptized Dec 21, 2008. I believe it was the best decision I have ever done. I have read the whole bible and I have attended church for many years. I believe in God and believe he loves everyone. That is why he sent his son for us.  I am also a supporter of the LBGT community. I do not see anything wrong with same sex marriage. I believe everyone should have the same human and civil rights as anyone else. I believe that is our God given right.
 I don't want this post to end up being a debate about the church and how what they believe is right or wrong because I have my opinions about that too. Maybe I'll save that for a later post. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. That is the greatest thing about this country. There are so many other places where being "gay" is deemed a sickness, and where it is even illegal. I could go on all day about who went wrong where. Until people stop being afraid of something that they do not understand then this world will continue to be in turmoil. As long as you have consenting adults who love each other then whats the harm? People forget that not long ago interracial marriages were also banned in this country. Do we really want to go back in time? Or move forward to equality and acceptance for all?

FYI, I was ordained on 2/5/2015, in support of equality marriages. So yes I can marry people. #makingadifference #lovecantwait

Unconditional

Wrote this a while ago...


As a parent I love my children unconditionally. I might not like some of the things they do or want to do. I love my kids just the way they are, I accept them for that and encourage them to be themselves and to never lose that. Be the silly person that they are and express themselves in their crazy clothes and hair. They are only kids once and they need to enjoy that before they have to grow up and take on adult responsibilities. I have taught my kids that they should like people for who they are and not what they look like. I have taught them that they should not care about the materialistic things in life, it doesn't last. I encourage them to love God with all their heart, mind and soul. And if you put God first in life he will give you the desires of your heart. He will convict you of the wrong in your life and that is the only person you should be worried about pleasing. With that said it hurts my heart to know that parents will disown their own child because of their actions of how they want to live their life. Some kids pierce their face, get tattoos, color their hair crazy colors, are homosexuals, or have relationships with different races. You are supposed to love your kids unconditionally. But people get caught up with “What is everyone else going to think if my kid shows up like that?” WHO CARES? I taught my kids to not be followers of anyone but to make their own decisions and to also think about their decisions.  The only person they are on stage for is God and at the end of the day they have the free will to live their life. Don’t sit there and think “oh my goodness how is this going to make me look?” They are not here to MAKE you look good. I guarantee the same people judging you and your kids are the very same ones with bigger skeletons in their closet. These kids have the courage to be themselves and to put that out there and that is courageous. Some adults are too afraid to even do that. So I hope you “Adults” out there will grow up some day and love your kids because they are your kids, not because of how they make you look.

Nerd Power

I never got into the board games like D&D or the card games like...mmmm......I don't even know whats it's called. Sorry, that's how much I don't care for them I guess.
I remember my dad would take me to the movies and read books. We seen King Kong, Dracula shows, the swamp thing, and the Hulk shows. I guess that’s where I get my love of these kinds of shows. My first movie was Star Trek, the Wrath of Khan.  OMG the ear wick is the main thing I remember from that movie! Freaked me out. But for some reason I couldn't get enough of Star Trek. I got into the original series and the New Generation but I just couldn't get into the other stuff like Battlestar Galactica, and whatever else spin off of whatever was our there. Star Wars....that's a different story. Love all of them.  I'm not sure hoe I feel about Disney doing more movies, the jury is still out on that one. I know there's  this rule you are for one or the other but I just can't pick one. I like them both. Sorry. I like to think my dad contributed those types of movies and my love for books. At least he did that right.
It figures I would turn into a nerd. At least that’s what my sister in law calls me. I don’t mind though. I know I’m a nerd.

PS. Found this cool ass Chewbacca jacket that I'm dying for.




mmmm now that I look at my previous pics that I post on Facebook, they are all of Star Wars. Cause I don't think I would be caught dead in a Star Trek outfit, LOL but I am gonna rock this Chewie jacket!

Getting Started

I'm not really sure of where to start with this blog but I do have a lot in my mind that I would like to say and of course I do have an opinion about everything. I just felt so moved lately about living in the moment, being yourself and doing what makes you happy. Live life to the fullest. Don't hold back just because your scared. Life is too short. Step out of your comfort zone. I have been through so much in my short life and maybe my story can help someone else or show how everyone struggles with something. I've decided to do more than what I've been doing. Trying something new continually. That's why I decided to start this blog. I had reserves about doing so, because I hate writing and always felt insecure about doing so. 

I am going to write about my life growing up and I will also post about present day. I will write about subjects that some people might get pissed about, but this is what I went through. Different things that happened to me or friends that made me the person I am today. I  will not name names. I will respect every one's privacy about that. But if you know me well, then you might can guess the names of some, but still, I felt like I had to put that in here. I will not tell other peoples stories, that's for them to tell. I will tell my side of it and how it has effected me. 

 Hopefully I won't jump around too much and confuse anyone. Yeah my grammar might be a little off or I use slang a lot. I am trying to stay me when I write. So I'm sorry if your an English major and you're cringing right now. The world still turns. :)

My memory is not all that great to remember every detail for a book, but maybe if I start writing it will come out eventually. Maybe just getting lost in the moment writing about it will trigger some memories and details. Then I can piece them together in the right order. So here goes.
