Fresh Notes

Took a great break and am very refreshed. I shared some new art to my niche art blog, and a few other venues. I was doing a bit of online reading earlier as well.

On another, more important topic:

There’s a lot on my heart as I write this post, it is my fervent desire that all come to know the Lord Jesus.

There is a quote from a man named Penn Jillette, which says: “How much do you have to hate someone, to believe eternal life is possible and not tell them?”

Telling people about the Lord should be on the heart of EVERY believer, nobody should perish, Dear Ones. All should come to repentance.

If you’ve become lukewarm, if your passion for reaching out to others with the Love and truth of God has grown dull, my hope is that it be renewed.

We should Love each other as fervently as Jesus does.

That is all for now my friends. ❣️

A Quick Note To Fellow Parents

Parents often worry that they will fail their children, either by holding the reins too tight, or not tight enough. All we can really do is our best to strike a balance.

Give them room to grow and bloom, and give Love, guidance, and discipline (as needed) along the way.

Cheers to those parents who are out there right now trying to navigate (and help their children navigate) the perils of this present age. My Love and support goes out to you.

This Needed Addressed

A disease is destructive, sin is also destructive, warning people of those realities is not abuse at all. Though there are some who erroneously think so.

It would actually be abuse NOT to tell someone of the dangers and destructiveness of sin. Just as it would be abuse/malpractice for a Dr. not to tell a patient they are unhealthy if they are.

Thankful

So, I was feeling down earlier, but my cousin Wanda & my aunt Mary kind of “talked me off the ledge” as the saying goes. I am so thankful they were available to pick me up, I could feel their Love even though we’re States away from each other, and that is precious.

Just My Two Cents

I heard earlier about a girl who was basically ignored by her parents, meanwhile, they doted on her sister. If what the girl says is the truth, which I have no reason to doubt, it makes me really wonder why. A parent should Love/respect all their children, or they shouldn’t be parents at all.

Cool Day With My Son Yesterday (and Other Notes)

Yesterday, we took my son to the lunch in the park again, then later he hung out with me while his mom went to her mother’s house. We had fun, played cards, watched cartoons, played with a balloon, smacking it around. He was well behaved the whole time which was great.

If you are a parent of a young kid, any way that you are able to show them they are valued & Loved, they will thrive on, I can promise you that.

Whatever ELSE you are doing throughout your day, taking time & giving them acknowledgement, positive attention, validation is very healthy (for them & the relationship.)

Good Morning and Other Notes

Good morning again all.

Thought I’d get back to sharing here now that I’ve had a reasonable few hours to rest.

I am presently watching a documentary show. So far it’s holding my interest. It’s American history related, which is great for me. It’s also about a family and their struggles in the aftermath of war. It’s further about fortitude & Love in the midst of hardship.

It has lessons in it that our society at large could learn from. It’s one of the better things I’ve seen over the years.

Loving The Sinner, Condemning The Sin

Jesus is well known for Loving people, but never once did He ever endorse sin.

All Christians know (by His example) that we can and should Love people, without accepting/approving the evil deeds that people are at times inclined to.

Condemning an ACTION is not the same as hating the person engaged in said action. If for example, my son stole a dollar from me, I would still Love him, but I would rightly condemn his thievery.

The idea that rebuking wrongdoing is bigotry toward the person engaged in the wrongdoing is utter nonsense.
