You can’t be faithful to God and have an ungrateful heart. Most that don’t believe in God or do believe but choose to hate Him and try to defile Him in all that they do seem to have a childish mindset that God is like a genie that grants wishes. They don’t get what they want out of their life so blame God or think because they make bad choices and have poor impulse control that God does not exist.
The only people who can think this way are those that were not taught spiritual truth. The term is “walking in the dark.” They say ignorance is bliss but in the long run it really is death. Man will be held accountable for deliberate ignorance. God knows if you know something is wrong but choose to do it anyway or when you find something out that you know is true but try to pretend that it’s not and try to blame it on our current liberal propaganda that is obviously destroying His world. I think we were all born with certain inner knowledge, as most creatures, of what to do and what not to do. It is called instinct. Since man is very selfish by nature because of that survival instinct, it is important to temper this selfishness with civility or spiritual training or any kind of civilization would be quite impossible. Sometimes it truly looks like many are completely brainwashed by the low-grade movies churned out by the greedy and depraved. Just cause you watch it on a screen, does not make it real life or anything worth imitating. Man is very easily influenced by others, that’s how we learn. It’s shameful that most of any entertainment that exists in America has so much gratuitous sex and violence instead of instilling values and reinforcing the positive qualities of mankind.
People seem to forget, that much like our earth is being mindlessly trashed, if we are not mindful of how we are raising human beings and treating one another, there could come a point of no return for everything. We are not guaranteed tomorrow, we are not guaranteed the use of this earth, especially if we don’t take care of it. The same goes for others in our lives that are not treated with the love and kindness that Jesus spoke of. This is exactly why He is the truth, the life and the only way.
So yes, I consider myself faithful. How could I not be faithful to someone who loved me enough to die for me?
Wanted to post a few photographs of some decorations I threw up this year in the tiny apartment I just moved to. I still have some decorations packed away I only realized when I started unpacking what I thought was all of my Christmas stuff. The rest has to be in my storage unit shoved in the back, so not looking for it this year anyway. I have a cute little area with lights that I can enjoy and that’s all I need for now. Besides this is one of the first years I’m not hosting my family for Christmas Eve, which I never post publicly anyway for everyone’s privacy. I may post a few more Christmas stuff later. So glad I was not able to sell the tiny tree at the garage sale held right before I moved!
I used to have two hand painted angels and then inherited the other two which were given to my sister after she sadly passed away right after the holidays in 2013, her favorite time of year. She was not expected to live to see that Christmas, but we all knew she’d hang on for it and she did! She actually rallied on Christmas Eve 2013 and I dared to believe that was sign but she wanted to go home and it was her time. Love you Gail!
My one and only vice at this time. As a borderline diabetic, I’m ashamed of myself as any alcoholic would feel falling off the wagon every time I over indulge and know I do it with some risk. I have always loved sweets, but mostly just chocolate and ice creams with some kind of fudge or chocolate in it or on it. For years I kept my cravings under acceptable control. A piece of chocolate here and there. A small bowl (or two) of ice cream after dinner in the evening. Now it’s over the moon due to once I start eating sweets, it’s hard for me to stop. I started drinking coffee with International Delight French Vanilla which is so delicious on its own and it sets my palate for more sweets like maybe a donut or scone instead of oatmeal, toast or an egg.
Since I’m new in my small town, about two months now, I have already visited a couple local bakeries in the morning if I wake up and feel the need to get out because it’s just too quiet and they have a no noise thing before 8:00 am. I’m po’ so a buck or two for something sweet is better than forking out four or five dollars for an omlette.
Enjoy the visions of sugar (not plums) dancing on my screen!

Enjoy the pictures I tried to take of the Tecumseh Michigan Christmas/Santa Parade. It was held the evening of Friday, December 4th, 2015

I was walking down the street and found an invitation to a Christmas party to be held in a social services center in San Bernardino California for tomorrow. I think I’ll stop in and drop off a donation of some kind then!
