Every now and then I wish that my blog was private. That I could say whatever I wanted to say and not worry about what people would think or how it would make them feel. I know that some of you are probably thinking that I already do that, but believe it or not, I don't. I have a few blogs that have been deleted or moved. Sparing those I love from hurt feelings or tough memories. Sometimes I write and I realize that not everyone really wants to know what I think ALL of the time ;). Today is one of those days. Today I want to write about some things that fire me up. I want to write about what disappoints me in some of the people that I love. I want to write about what I want for others and why I could just shake the hell out of the ones that will not listen to me.
I am not perfect. I have made more mistakes then I care to remember or to talk about. Some of you know many of them and could help me remember. ;) I don't pretend to have all of the answers but there are a few things that I do know.
If you live in a state of intoxication whether it is from drugs or alcohol, there is no way to find all of the happiness that is out there for you.
If you live in the past, you miss the present.
If you don't forgive, you will never forget.
Smoking kills you.
Without Jesus you will not go to heaven. Period. That does not make me biased, it makes me right.
I don't want to be your friend if you are not good to your friends.
Do not tell me you are going to do something and not do it.
You should always take up for your spouse.
You should never, ever, ever, talk ugly to your mama.
Sometimes your kids are right and you are wrong.
Heaven is real.
So is hell and if you do not have Jesus in your heart, you are going to spend eternity there.
No one is perfect except Jesus.
You have never done more than you can be forgiven for.
Boundaries are good, even for family.
Your siblings are the only ones that know exactly how you feel about your childhood.
When you are lost, you should listen to the ones that love you the most.
Asking for help shows strength and pride is a weakness.
Not money, or looks, or things, can make you happy.
Disrespect in a marriage rears children that show disrespect.
If you drink in front of your kids, expect your kids to drink.
If you cuss in front of your kids, expect your kids to cuss.
If you smoke in front of your kids, expect your kids to smoke.
If you have an unhealthy Godless marriage, expect your kids to have the same.
Your kids are always watching and listening and looking to you to show them what will make them happy.
If you are over 20 and still using your childhood as an excuse for your failures, you need to take a looong look in the mirror.
If you are over 25 and still live at home without contributing, you need to get a life.
Your parents are not responsible for your adult failures, you are old enough to know right from wrong and make corrections where they failed you.
You should always say thank you when someone does something for you.
Loving somebody should not stop because they fail you.
Always pray, never stop, God answers in his own time.
Okay I am done with my rant. Sometimes a girl just has to say a few things!!
