We can say we will never commit a crime but what we can't say is that no one will ever accuse us of committing a crime and if that happens good luck in this criminal justice system. - Jerry Buting

The more I grow up the less I care to be around or engage argumentative people, I'd rather just keep my peace and let them think they're right... I guess I'm saying I now fully understand and support Prov 26:4, "Don't answer the foolish arguments of fools, or you will become as foolish as they are." ;)

Happy people focus on what they do have, unhappy people focus on what they don't have... People notice the change in me lately and ask. Well, that's what it boils down to... When something traumatizing happens it can steal your focus and your whole life if you let it... I truly believe everything I have has been given to me by God so who am I to tell Him what is best. Hannah prayed for years for a child who was a priest by the age of eight. Moses's mom was a God fearing woman who's child was taken from her as a baby then given back and taken again at the age of 3 to be raised by the evil people of her time.

Is it just me or have people these days grown selfish and disguised it as loving their selves? Yes, we are to all have a healthy love for ourselves. However, the second commandment does not say, “Love yourself.” Nor does it say the other extreme, “Love your neighbor and forget yourself.” It says, “Love your neighbor AS yourself.” It breaks my heart to see how cold people and relationships have gotten these days and absolutely disgusts me that they call it love!

If someone isn’t making us 100% happy we run in the name of loving ourselves. That’s not loving yourself! That is avoiding growing up! Yes, there are relationships that need to be walked away from but even then it is to be done out of love for the other person as well as yourself. The goal should be to set a boundary against the destructive behavior in hopes that it will cause them to look at their self and change as wellas stopping it ... more »

If someone isn’t making us 100% happy we run in the name of loving ourselves. That’s not loving yourself! That is avoiding growing up! Yes, there are relationships that need to be walked away from but even then it is to be done out of love for the other person as well as yourself. The goal should be to set a boundary against the destructive behavior in hopes that it will cause them to look at their self and change as well as stopping it from hurting you. The goal should never be to hurt the other person! Nor should you care so much about yourself that you forget the other person has a heart and feelings. And, I just love those people who are so happy one day and then just disappear from the relationship the next without a word, no explanation, no attempting to work through the problem. Yet, the first thing the Bible tells us to do is go to that person! Not run from them!

Somewhere along the line, we have been fed and believed the lie that love should be easy and pain free and there shouldn’t be any work involved. So, people just keep jumping from one person to the next to the next to the next trying to find and keep that euphoria. We have this sense of entitlement that others were put on this earth to serve us and make us happy and if they aren’t then we will just move on and find someone who will. Yet, what they don’t realize is with that attitude, they will never find somebody who will because that is the total opposite of how God designed love to be and how He has laid out in the Bible for it to operate.

The goal of relationship is not for the other person to serve you; but, for you to serve them! You are to serve each other! Care for each other! Look out for each other! Your focus is not to be on yourself! No, you aren’t to be a doormat that just allows others to trample all over you. Not only is that not loving yourself; but, it’s not loving them either! That is enabling! You are teaching them that behavior is correct when really it will only bring destruction into their life. However, that doesn’t mean that it’s ok to just run with no explanation, no chance of correction, no care or concern for the other person or their feelings.

Believe me, I know how easy it is to fall in the ditch on either side of the road so this is not a sermon or judgment. It is a reminder. A reminder that I myself received just last night... Recently, a man questioned the motives of another man in my life and I was left pondering all of the points he made and he had some really good ones. I eventually began to wonder what benefit it was for this other man to be my friend too. I really didn’t have anything to offer him, there weren’t any promises for a future, I was a good deal older and my life was a mess so what was he doing hanging out with me? I finally broke down and asked him why he was in my life. I thought of all of the different responses he could have… They all started with because I… but the one he sent never even crossed my mind. This much younger, much more immature man (as the other one called him) replied and his words started with, “Because you…”

“Because you need someone.”___

Today is the day! I remember! And, not just my remote start this morning... I remember me! I remember who I was! I remember who I am in Christ! I remember my authority! My power! All of you have watched me literally be buried alive these last few years, left for dead... And, I was... I was dead inside... But today, if those who buried me were to visit my grave, they wouldn't find me there! Let the message be spread... She has risen! She remembers! She's alive! And, she loves! With a love and a spirit that will never be taken from her again!

Cause I hear a voice and He calls me redeemed
When others say I'll never be enough
And greater is the One living inside of me
Than he who is living in the world

I realized something about myself today... I'm not even capable of thinking like a normal person. It's like most people have a certain amount of selfishness or what about me mentality that I lost somewhere along the way and can't re-find... When I was reading along in my book, I wrote down my thoughts as I always do (read the handwriting on the image, if you can decipher it, to get what I mean). And, when I continued on to the next paragraph, I realized how abnormal my thoughts were. It broke my heart that was the normal response to this man's genuine heart confession. I could see getting upset temporarily at the lie but to walk out on someone when they were finally at the point of genuinely giving and receiving love broke my heart for both of them... It's like our world has so conditioned us to expect perfection that people would rather live a fake life and uphold an image or walk away... more »

I'll never be sorry
for loving too much
forgiving too often
not holding a grudge

I'll never apologize
for being too soft
wearing my heart on my sleeve
or fighting for what I want

I won't be condemned
for trying too hard
refusing to lose hope
or not hiding my scars

I won't let you judge me
or define who I am
I wasn't put on this earth
to please any man

I'll never quit believing
or standing in faith
and I'll never give up
no matter how many mistakes I make

Your insults don't hurt me
though you may see me cry
my tears are for you
and the love I can't hide

I can't even hate you
believe me I've tried
but I don't want to be like you
full of evil and pride

I'll only be sorry
you didn't know what it was

It's not difficult for us to comprehend the nature of physical laws. The law of gravity will function whether you believe it is valid or not. If you jumped from a 30 story building with a firm conviction in your heart that gravity would not prevail, you would still be dead after you hit the ground. Physical laws work without regard to a person's belief. The same is true with spiritual laws. Nothing in the Bible was put there by accident and you don't have to believe it's true for it to still apply to your life. - "My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge." Hosea 4:6

I was reading along in my book and I came across this quote by an unknown author and it spoke to me so dramatically that of course I had to create a graphic and share it with all of you. Especially the women! I was as close to dying because of the criticism of a man as you could possibly get. Ladies, listen to me... Flattery is fleeting! I found myself going on dates and I wasn't even sure why it was just what you're supposed to do when you're single, or so everyone says. You're supposed to get out there and at least try. How else will you heal or get better? But, here is what I've found... All men will compliment you at first. Then, slowly but surely, they will start to find little things wrong with you. And, how you handle that will determine the course of your relationship from there on out. So, how else do we heal? We stay away from men! Stay home! Press in! Work through the junk!... more »

Yell! Pout! Eat! Do whatever you need to... Just don't jump from one unhealthy relationship to another! Learn who you are! Become who you want to be! And then, after you are happy with you without anybody else... Then, it is OK to go on a date. But, stay true to you! Don't change for a man! Don't accept whatever treatment they want to give you just to have somebody around! Read the book, "Boundaries" and learn how to hold them. And NEVER let a man's opinion define you!!!

I've really been trying to press in to God again. I miss what I used to have with him. I miss being able to hear Him and trust Him with my whole life. So, I've been forcing myself to read and spend time with Him even though I don't feel like it and I can't focus. But, I'm slowly making progress... I was just reading along in my book and it said that Matthew 7:20 starts by saying Jesus's disciples will be known by their fruit. I immediately started to do what I always do and got into dialogue with God in my head, "If people are looking at me and my life, I don't look like your disciple. I can't be used. I'm a horrible example. My life is a mess, I failed, and all of my blessings are gone." And, for the first time in a really long time that inner voice rose up, "It didn't say Jesus's disciples were known by their earthly blessings. It said they were... more »

The fruits are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control. All of which you have in abundance and all of which have only grown stronger through all of your trials."___

I will stand by someone through almost anything and there isn't a thing a person could do that I wouldn't forgive... except lying. And honestly, I've been known to make excuses for and overlook a good many lies and tend to always want to give the person the benefit of the doubt even if that means letting them think I'm just stupid and gullible and lie right to my face about petty unimportant shit. But eventually, if a person doesn't value me enough to be honest with me, I'll decide they don't value me enough to care if I'm in their life or not and I'll decide to simply quit listening to the half truths, distorted perceptions, and purposeful twists and omissions.

I spent years praying prayers that I couldn't see any fruition of. Then, in a day, something I believed impossible for almost a decade and even gave up believing for was just a reality. There was no parting of the Red Sea or huge build up to the moment, it just wasn't and then it was. I spent years pursuing peace and trying so hard to live in peace then my life completely fell apart and all I had left ironically was peace. I tried and tried and tried to become all that God wanted me to be until I wore myself out only to discover that He knew how to get me there the whole time. He knows what He is doing and we may not always like the path He takes us down but He knows how to get us to where we need to be. I used to read the Book of Kings and at the end of every story it would read he did this this and this and he was a good king but he failed to do this. It broke my heart.

I used to read the Book of Kings and at the end of every story it would read he did this this and this and he was a good king but he failed to do this. It broke my heart. So, while there were so many superficial prayers that I prayed and so many plans for my life that I planned, He knew my 1 prayer above all was to not let my story read that way. To not have it said of me that I was a great this or a good at that but in the end I failed. To not let that one thing at the end of my story stand between me and God. So while I may not have much of anything else and I may not like the path I was forced down, it alone allowed my ultimate prayer to be answered. Peace is honestly all I have and I truly have an overflowing abundance of it. I can't remember the past and I can't see a future but my present truly feels like a present all day every day <3___

I don't know if I've reached a state of constant peace or if my memory has just gotten so bad that I can't remember any of the hurt or pain. So maybe I've finally completely healed or maybe ignorance truly is bliss but all day every day I'm truly just here and happy just to be me and be alive.

I clicked on my "about me" section on fb for the first time in years and my own #quotes of my own words spoke life to me reminded of who I am and made me thankful that no matter what I go through or who comes and goes in life, I have always stayed #real and true to myself <3

We're all just one phone call away from learning the results of a test or the news of an affair, the death of a loved one, the loss of a job, or a thousand other ways our hope can be shattered. In that moment, we think life as we know it is over. The truth is, life, as we've yet to know it, has just begun. - Laura Story

One day, a donkey fell into a pit. The animal cried and whined for hours so the farmer decided that since the animal was old, and the pit needed to be covered up anyway, he'd just bury the old donkey right there. He got a shovel and started filling in the pit. The donkey kept up its wailing, but eventually fell silent. After an hour of furious shoveling, the farmer paused to rest. To his amazement, he saw his old donkey jump out of the pit and trot away!

At first, when the donkey realized what was happening, he cried even more piteously. But as each spadeful of dirt hit his back, the donkey would shake it off and take a step up on the growing mound of earth. Eventually, the mound grew high enough for him to jump out of the pit and run away happily.

I came across this #scripture in the book I was reading and it just really spoke to my #heart ... This is what it's all about! This is #love ... So, of course I had to create a #quote pic so that I could share it with all of you <3

My life may look a mess but if there's one thing I've learned that I could share with all of you to help you avoid a mess... It's to listen to that little voice inside. I've learned that my first impression is usually correct and where I go wrong is when I start letting a person override what I think inside and talk me in to believing and trusting them instead. Then, when it all comes out in the wash, one voice was always correct. Don't doubt yourself!

Why is it that I haven't one of the cup of tea in probably a year but now that somebody left my empty tea kettle on the burner that was on high and destroyed it... Now I want tea!?!?!?!

Well, God surely didn't care that I didn't receive any of these things, nor did He care to protect me himself. I love how people use "be careful" or "you reap what you sow" as a way of scaring people; but, the truth is... I definitely have not reaped what I've sown in life and there are some really evil people who's lives never catch up to their actions. The more evil and selfish they are the more they gain and the more they get what they want. One swift kick would knock them down, but it never comes. Yet, there are others who are constantly being knocked down who could just use one thing to go their way and it never comes... I still love God but honestly can't stand reading all this fake superficial shit people say any more. The truth is, this world sucks and evil wins but some of us are cursed with consciences that keep us from being able to succeed in this world... more »

Seriously, some times I still just bust out this song out of nowhere and I'm amazed how many people don't even remember it yet I somehow remember every word but I can't remember what I did 5 minutes ago :/

Big Mac, Mc DLT, a Quarter-Pounder with some cheese, Filet-O-Fish, a hamburger, a cheeseburger, a Happy Meal, McNuggets, tasty golden french fries, regular and larger sizes, and salads, chef or garden or a chicken salad Oriental. Big-Big Breakfast, Egg McMuffin, hot hotcakes and sausage, maybe biscuits, bacon, egg and cheese or sausage, danish, hash browns too, and for dessert: hot apple pies, and sundaes three varieties, a soft-serve cone, three kinds of shakes, and choc’laty chip cookies, and to drink: a Coca-Cola, Diet Coke, and orange drink, a Sprite and coffee, decaf, too, a lowfat milk, also an orange juice. I love McDonald’s good time,great taste, and I get this all atone... more »

Have you ever had something trigger a memory and it make you wish you could go back to that moment? Wish you could go back and listen to someone much wiser that was trying to warn you and look out for you? Wish you could scream at yourself to stop being so stupid, naive, and trusting? I've never had any regrets until now... Now, I regret pouring so much of myself and my love into someone so selfish. I regret trying to have an open, honest, real relationship with someone I knew was incapable. I regret handing the power to hurt me into the hands of a person I knew would use it. I regret not listening to those who warned me...

I really didn't expect this one to turn out. We were driving about 70 miles an hour and I knew a bridge was coming. I hardly grabbed my camera in time before we got to the interference and I didn't have time to steady it.

My happiness finally outweighs my hurt and my passion has returned <3 I see life through a lens again. I see clouds and wish I had my camera. I watch people and am thinking about the best angle to capture the moment. I watch TV and instead of paying attention to the plot I'm thinking about what effect they used. It's so nice to be me again!
