A sorrowful heart and a European soul.

I think I can best describe myself as a sorrowful heart and a European soul. I have always been drawn to Europe and feel at home there. I always carry a certain sadness in my heart as well, and have great compassion for others who suffer and am constantly praying for them. The rampant immorality, sin and disregard for God in the world troubles me greatly, and I am concerned for people’s salvation and pray for the souls of the dead. My mother, however, sees my high moral standards, staunch religious beliefs(and being unapologetic for it) as well as my strong opinions and conservative views as “self-righteous”, “critical” and “judgemental”, when really it comes from LOVE; I love and genuinely care about people and I WANT them to go to Heaven,and as Christians we ARE called to evangelize and admonish sinners, with the hopes of leading them to God and salvation! I DON’T want people to deny God and to go to Hell.This is why I let them know and what drives me to stand up for what’s right, as well as righteous anger that so many in the world disobey and have turned their backs on God, esp. when He loves us all so much! I have lost friends over my views and beliefs and it does turn some people off,and I’m always being hassled, but that’s their problem, not mine,and I am accountable and loyal  to GOD first!

In other news, right in the middle of watching a movie last night the power went off, in the entire street,and was out for 7 hours,and we never did find out why, or what happened. Just my “luck” though; I hardly watch anything, and the odd time I do THAT’S always the time the satellite, TV, or power goes off.Figures.It feels like everything is always working against me all the time and nothing ever seems to go my way!

Big Brother is still alive and well….

I am disgusted to hear of more Big Brother intrusion from governments: in one instance a 13 year old Dutch girl wants to break a world record and sail alone around the world…and child protection agencies have stripped her parents of custody and taken away their parental rights(because they support her),and are over-seeing her and forcing her to have psychological evaluations. In another case, the American state of Massachussets(I hope I spelt that right!) is possibly going as far to force it’s citizens to have the Swine Flu vaccine and even going as far as going to fine them 1000$ a DAY as well as JAIL time, if they refuse! WHAAAT? So much for freedom! So much for making your own decisions! Big Gov’t always has to intrude upon people’s privacy, families, homes, rights,and freedoms,and if we do anything that’s not considered to be “mainsteam” we are under attack from the know-it-all “Nanny-state”, and if we refuse what the gov’t tries to force upon us, we will be severely punished. Child protection agencies already have way too much power and are above the law, but unless children really are being abused or molested, nothing else is any of their business and they should just leave parents alone to raise their families as they see fit, and one has to wonder as well WHY gov’t’s are pushing the vaccine; what, are they implanting micro-chips or something, to track people, or even sterilizing them, for population control, or what? It sounds crazy, conspiricist,and paranoid, but nothing surprises me anymore,and the gov’t’s have become more and more intrusive and trampling on people’s rights and freedoms, so I guess ANYTHING is possible, and I personally wouldn’t put it past them! The signs of the Last Days as recorded in the Bible Book of Revelation come to mind as well: they will be marked with the sign of the beast…
