You can’t have your own opinion!!

I have to say I am outraged(although not surprised!) to hear Miss California has been “fired”. They SAY she had an “attitude problem” when we all KNOW it was REALLY  because she took a brave moral stand and said she didn’t agree with same-sex “marriage”. Now you can’t have your own opinion,say anything that’s not “politically-correct”, think for yourself, or stand up as a Christian for God’s Truth without being censored, silenced, or fired.As long as you quietly accept the propaganda society is indoctrinating you with, blindly go along,don’t oppose,stand out, disagree, question, criticize,make “waves”, and just  be an obedient sheep following  the mindless herd you are “safe” and blend in, but if you have the courage to defend morality,go against the crowd, think for yourself, follow God,question or defy the Powers that Be, you will be silenced.So much for freedom or freedom of speech! You are free to do as we tell you.You can have your own opinion just as long as it doesn’t differ from the “norm”.If it’s deemed “offensive” you will be silenced. It’s open-season for CHRISTIAN-bashing,but Christians are NOT allowed to express THEIR opinions, beliefs, faith, moral truths, or values. It doesn’t work BOTH ways!(oh, and “offending” gays is the BIGGEST no-no!

Wilson is sick today! Wilson; he’s sick today! I hope it’s nothing serious(and I worry since Shih Tzu CAN be prone to a genetic kidney disorder which is fatal)but rather just something disagreeable that he ate(and that dog eats ANYTHING, even ants!!).He barfed up this frothy yellow foam, had a bit of blood in his ca-ca,isn’t eating, is panting,and not too energetic.Hopefully just an upset stomach and nothing serious,but I’m worried!Maybe he ate a leaf or a stick or something?He’s also sneezing and has a fever(warm nose) I wonder if maybe he even has a cold?The kids do..

Aaaarrrgggghhh!Life has caught up to me!!

Today is a day I feel defeated and beaten down by life.One of those days everything just adds up and flattens you; the foibles of life just do you in.My life has caught up to me and attacked me all at once.The 2 year old threw the bag of Ritz crackers in the toilet the other day and today put cereal in the washing machine and scattered all over the floor(and when he’s asleep he looks so harmless!); he makes Dennis the Menace look like an angel! The 18 year old is also surly, snotty,haughty,entitled,and mouthy, and we are always clashing( she’s going away to university out of town in the fall and I find myself relieved) and the 14 year old mocks me with cruel barbs for being fat and ugly. My mother(who lives with us) is also controlling, meddling and overbearing and sabotages my discipline with the kids,interferes, and is always over-ruling and undermining me so now I have no authority over the kids anymore,and the 7 and 11 year olds are always taking the 6 year old’s toys and when she takes them back they say she’s stealing form them and no one(but me) believes her, and when I defend her I’m accused of “pampering” her! I also always feel “last” in life; left out, left behind, passed-over,short-changed. I have been betrayed by a friend and am still reeling from a family trauma years ago. I really need God,and times like this when I am feeling particularly beaten, defeated,bummed-out,dark,and barely holding on He always throws me a life line and pulls me back up.Today I’m waiting for that life-line…

Hail,Holy Queen.

Hail, Holy Queen,Mother of Mercy, Hail our life, our sweetness,and our hope. To Thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve.To Thee do we send up our sighs,mourning,and weeping in this vale of tears.Turn then, most gracious Advocate,Thine eyes of mercy toward us,and after this our exile show unto us the blessed Fruit of Thy womb,Jesus. O clement,O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.Pray for us,O Holy Mother of God,that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
