Stop Giving Toxic People Second Chances!

“When people show you who they are, believe them the first time." ~Maya Angelou Remember this because it will happen many times in your life. When people show you who they are the first time believe them. Not the 29th. time. When a man doesn't call you back the first time, when you are mistreated the first time, when someone shows you lack of integrity or dishonesty the first time, know that this will be followed many many other times, that will some point in life come back to haunt or hurt you. Live your life in truth. Don't pretend to be someone you're not. You will survive anything if you live your life from the point of view of truth.” ― Oprah Winfrey

Judgement Call

There were certain things I missed when I walked away from God and Church. Faith in God brings great comfort which is one of MANY reasons why I went back to Him. But judgement from "Holier than thou" Christians was NOT one of the things I missed, in fact it's one of the reasons I left. I was a goody goody to the max! I didn't, smoke, drink or chew or hang with those who do. I did not sleep with any other man for 51 years but MY HUSBAND AND I was still judged! I was never good enough for those in church or my husband! These are verses that those judgmental Christians seem to skip over: Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye. Matthew 7:1-6 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------We used to say this sometimes in the Presbyterian churches I attended as a child and teen: It correctly states that GOD is the judge! I also had my oldest children memorize it in our homeschool. Yeah, I was THAT ZEALOUS! The Apostles’ Creed I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son Our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into Heaven, and sits at the right hand of God, the Father almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic (Just means Christian) Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen...................................................................................................................................................................Also Peter The Apostle said that judgement will begin with CHRISTIANS. ! Peter 4:17........................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................... "For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?" I think it's time for Christians to stop JUDGING and start LOVING PEOPLE TO CHRIST!

The Party: In memory of Joyce Alexis Hewitt June 27, 1952-January 9, 2021

More than just a sister-in-law she was a great friend. Rest In Peace Joyce You are so loved!
January 8, 2021 She woke about 11:15 pm and said she was going to a party. She went to the bathroom on her potty chair. She asked me if I was going, so I said “later”. She said she saw Drew Barrymore. I asked who all was going to this party. First she said, “Two people”. Then she said “four”. She said Darrell and Sheryl were going. I asked her if I was invited, she said, “yes”. She asked, “What time are they coming?” because I said they would pick her up (because she kept trying to get out of bed). Then she said, “I need to put on my make-up” “Go get me my make-up and my wig” I make her promise not to move and I got her wig, make-up and a mirror. We put on the wig and she was applying the make-up herself when I got her oxygen hose which had come off again. She said, “ What? This? I thought I was dead already.” A single tear rolled down her cheek and she put the make-up down. I gave her her medicines and I told her, “It will happen when we’re all ready” Then she took the ring off her right hand and said, “Put this ring in a special place” I said, “Okay. And what about the other ring?” and she said, “Give this to Jody” I read to her more from the Bible and we prayed. She also said, “Look at the beautiful roses!” I reminded her they were from Darren and that the flower bear was from Jon and she grabbed him to put on the bed beside her. She was also exercising in the bed! Lifting one leg and the the other! I said to myself, “This may take awhile.” When we’re all ready! Psalm 116:15 Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints. PS The mistake in my story- which btw I wrote a few hours after it happened at about 3:00 am .........where she said "are you going?" (I meant to the Party) and it sounded like was I going to use the potty chair. I am leaving in there because we had joked about me using the potty chair! lol The mistake was unintentional though (to me).

A lady always knows when to leave.....

"Miss Ruth was a lady. A lady always knows when to leave." ~ The Film "Fried Green Tomatoes"
This quote from a favorite movie has come back to me many times and rung true in many of my life situations. In 2009 when my mom passed. In 2016 when I moved out of my exes house. In 2020 when I left my exes state....In 2021 it has come up many times: when my sister-in -law passed in January....when I left my brother's ranch house in April and then when I left the mostly toxic YouTube community/click later in the year and who knows when it will be time for me to move on again but I have confidence the Lord will let me know!
You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore. Psalm 16:11 Meghan Trainer's I'm A Lady

What Can You Do About Assholes?

I had an interesting conversation with my roomate the other day. It was about cast iron skillets and assholes. I said no I did not use soap on the cast iron skillet and my ex used to go on and on about that. He said something like, "cooks are particular about their cook ware" or something like that. At that I felt compelled to say, "I did most of the cooking" (I had so much practice that I was also better at it) To which he replied, "Why did he go on about the skillet then?" I said, "Because he's an asshole" To which he replied, "There's not much you can do about assholes" And I VERY MUCH DISAGREE WITH THAT STATEMENT BUT I DID NOT WANT TO ARGUE. HENCE THIS POST.There are many things we can do about assholes: 1) We can divorce them 2) We can avoid them. When we realize someone is an asshole, we can not hang around them. 3) If they refuse to leave us alone, we can get a restraining order 4) If they slander us, we can sue them 5) As Nadia says here, We can forgive them and it's like cutting the chord that binds us to them which makes us like freedom fighters who 6) Aren't afraid to SPEAK TRUTH TO STUPID. AMEN 7) SOMETHING PROFOUND CAME TO ME LATER THAT EVENING. WHEN WE FEEL HELPLESS AGAINST ALL THE ASSHOLES IN THE WORLD (AND THEIR ARE ALOT OF THEM) WHAT DO WE DO THEN? BULLIES ARE ASSHOLES AND WHEN PEOPLE FEEL HELPLESS AGAINST THEM THEY HAVE TAKEN THEIR OWN LIVES AND THAT IS SO SAD AND UNNECESSARY! PLEASE EVERYONE REMEMBER THERE IS SO MUCH WE CAN DO ABOUT ASSHOLES!!!!! PLEASE STOP ENCOURAGING AND SUPPORTING THEM! THANK YOU! "THERE IS A LIGHT THAT SHINES IN THE DARKNESS AND THE DARKNESS CANNOT AND WILL NOT AND SHALL NOT OVER COME IT!" PS So maybe I am "dangerous" after all? LOL

Pray For Your Enemies? But God.......

Oh I am to pray for my enemies? Okay God I'll pray for them to die.....Oops no that's not what I am to do......I'm finding I'm having to start out getting real with God (He knows how I feel already anyways) : God I'm NOT ready to pray for this person. God, I honestly hate this person and I don't want you to bless them. God they need to receive their karma/consequences for their actions. (To reap what they have sowed) God, they almost got me to quit YouTube!!! I seriously wanted to sue them and seriously DO have a case (IF Page Publishing can file a suite against me after ripping me off I can certainly sue this BULLY!) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- God please bless the family and friends of Lee MacMillan It was similar bullying that broke her and destroyed her!!! God it's NOT fair that anyone would go to his bs live to step on my regular live time and bash me. (Some of my "friends" were in his chat!!! Supporting his BS!!!!) This is now his most viewed live! But God THANK YOU for Tube buddy and that it now says I've had MORE views and MORE subs than this bully and the original bully (In the last 30 days) named Ray!!!! Wow God!!! And Ray actually has a great channel, how did I get more views than him? (Could it be his karma?) ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- God it is much easier to pray for my ex!!! God bless him. I loved him. I care about him, he's the father to my five children. He at least, tried to help me get in my RV when I was locked out. I was meant to be with him for 30 years, I believe that. That situation taught me so much! God, I want to help the abused and bullied. Show me how/what to do! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you......Matthew 5:44 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I am trying to pray for him, God. Okay Susan, Can you at least pray for his dogs for now? We will work on this.... Sure God: Please Bless Dallas and Pippa. Keep them well and healthy and happy for as long as is possible for doggies. Amen
