  • My Update

    28 Oct 2014 | 5:38 am
    It seems like a lifetime since I posted anything on my blog.  No, I haven't stopped just taking a break.   My mother had been sick for quite some time, and finally passed away on June 27th.  I guess I have been just processing the whole journey with her, and her very rough ending.  I know at this point she is with Jesus, and in peace finally in heaven.   Since then it seems like its one thing after another I have had to deal with, and my friends keep reminding me to allow myself the time to get back on track with my life.  I seemed to have bounced back after the…
  • The Long Goodbye

    18 Jun 2014 | 5:57 pm
    Once or twice a week I go and feed my mother lunch. Most of the time I fight myself to go more often…and I do…then I don’t…THEN I DO! On occasion I see a small glimpse of her with a facial expression, smile, or movement. Memories of our past are front and center, and then reality sets in for me.She will talk to me, but doesn’t make any sense. Majority of the time she is in her own little world that Alzheimer’s created for her.  You can only get a glimpse of her early in the day, and pretty much nothing after lunch.She used to belong to the group that would wander the halls,…
  • Use Silly Examples for the 'you don't get it' Generation?

    I started reading CBMW’s new e-book they released online.  If you read the Foreword by John Piper it seems this is a introduction to the NEW group of complementarian leaders of our future.  ,   I’ll begin with the first chapter of their new e-book.    Owen Strachan is continuing the theme of humans being ‘confused’ by their gender.  How if you allow him to show you the truth about gender and God?  Things just magically work I guess.  WELL at least you are doing it the biblical way anyway right?!  Problem is they are taking the same approach…

    A Christian leader, charged with any credible, serious, and direct wrongdoing, would usually be well advised to step down from public ministry. No such accusation of direct wrongdoing was ever made against C. J. Mahaney. Instead, he was charged with founding a ministry and for teaching doctrines and principles that are held to be true by vast millions of American evangelicals.   The above quote is included in the support letter of CJ Mahaney after parts of a lawsuit were dropped against Mahaney and his church due to the Statue of Limitations.  Translation?  According to the law…
  • Headship in Heaven–Part two

    26 Mar 2014 | 7:20 am
    When I wrote to you last time about an article CBMW put up regarding ‘Headship is Heaven’?  People from all over the internet were talking about how the article went offline after some serious criticism of the opinion given in the article itself.  It wasn’t so much that the website no longer showed the article, but the substance within the article that was seriously troubling. Since that time Associate Baptist Press took up the story, and went into more details about the troubling nature of the content of the article.  The fact that the article was taken down?  It…

  • These are the safest cities in America for women

    19 Nov 2014 | 9:51 am
    Regardless of its bigoted editing, the Hollaback video that went viral in October documented a nasty reality: Even just walking down the street, many women don’t feel safe. But are they? In the US, that depends on where in the country they live, according to new research by ValuePenguin.com, a financial research firm that created weighted rankings of 285 American cities based on rates of murder, rape, or stalking charges. For instance, female residents of the Chicago suburb of Naperville, Illinois, are much less likely to be victims of violent crime or stalking than those in…
  • Blogging in Secret.

    Today’s verbal abuse was “I’m going out now, and you’ll be here, eating and sleeping.” Just because she doesn’t know what I’m doing, does not mean I’m doing nothing. It would be even worse if she knew I was writing. Besides being a waste of time and without intrinsic value, writing means revealing secrets about my family, the worst kind of disloyalty. I say “Let the civil disobedience reign!”… and yet, it is rather passive-aggressive of me to blog in secret about our confrontational home. I don’t know any other way to handle…

    Taken from Bravotv.com Whaaat? Did Apollo just admit that he LIEd about seeing Kenya in L.A? What?!?!  That is foul, Apollo. That’s messed up.  Are his friends mad or nah?  Lol.  What will his wife Phaerdra say? Well, I have to tell you what I think.  Phaedra was trying to be a good woman and believe her husband and let a woman know to back up.  But, reality TV never wants for lack of name calling.  She didn’t have to go THERE.  “Kenya Whore”. That was too much.  So while Apollo was very, very, very, very, VERY wrong for lying, his wife could have taken the truly proper…

    I hear my mother in the kitchen saying good morning to the animals. “Get out of the way, Shitty Kitty.” “Oh, Winston. You’re such a good doggie. Yes you are, my sweet boy.” Every time I hear her dismiss the cat with verbal abuse and cuddle the dog with kisses, I have flashbacks to my childhood. It seemed to me like there always had to be a bad child. I wasn’t the good daughter because I got straight A’s on my report card. That was expected of me and never rewarded. No, I was the good daughter because my brother smoked pot. I was good because he was a…
