Remember how great our story really is. Despite how we are treated in America, my people show up with courage and fight. Our men and women fight for freedom regardless of whether they experience it. This is the 369th Infantry Regiment (out of New York) They fought during World War I and World War II.
about social media, I have to wonder who the heck they are following or allowing to follow them. God warns us pretty clearly when He says “Guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.” Proverbs 4:23
I mean you can get rid of people with the click of a button. I know I have done it. Your media should be the perfect because you follow the folks who encourage you, delete those folks who get on your nerves and live your best life.
I love Twitter. It is a place where I can see what people really think. I mean you might sing a great song, or preach a great sermon, but I want to know what you are about when the fat meets the fire.
I mean if you are prolife but have not problem with the government taking children from their parents and releasing them to human traffickers, I need to know that about you.
If you post a whole bunch of I love Jesus stuff, but the only love you show is your friend group, I need to know that.
The thing I love the most about Twitter is the ability to comment back. Nothing is more empowering to me than to be able to say, “Oh you got that all wrong!” or “Keep up the faith sister, we all in this together.”
I love knowing that there are women out there fighting the fight with everything they got. It gives me a pin hole of light in a very dark world. Because of Jesus, I build my world on hope that good will triumph over evil.
I like the internet, but can’t keep up with everything that happens. I am usually behind when I finally catch on to something that has been trending a while.
Mostly because whatever is trending is blowing my mind. By that I mean it is really stupid, or it’s pretty wow or it just can’t be figured out.
But sometimes it is just stinking fun.
So with that. I am on team Laurel. I know right. Blew my mind. I went to several sights to listen to it. All the time, Laurel. It was weird. Then I went through the house and made others listen. Yanny. Can you believe I live with a bunch of Yannys? But doesn’t it speak to how unique we all are?
Then I kept seeing this woman on the phone on some of the craziest memes. And I asked myself, what is that all about? This woman called the police because some people were grilling in a park. That was stupid and so the internet went to town on her. And you know it is funny when you have friends and family from all over the place sharing the different memes.
This one here made me stop and take notice.
Whenever there is a shifting in the atmosphere there is one I call, but you can’t get Him by phone! This meme cracked me up.
It is also something that should make you stop and think before you do something someone else can make look stupid.
Yet in addition to that I read Black Guns Matter, a dehumanizing president is the most openly bigoted one ever and American Christians love it, our freedom is slipping away as we focus on the wrong things, when we put ourselves before the ones we love we end up missing the greatest day of their life and how to define my own success.
Instead of a small world that consist of my four walls, my work friends and a few people I have stayed in touched with over the years, I am drowning in a world of photos, quotes, prom and graduation photos of people I will never meet, vacation spots I never knew existed, clothing that will train my waist (lol), exercisers, travelers, dance recitals, remarkable looking food, a valiant history that reminds me how long and hard we have fought for freedom, and I love every minute of it.
Thanks for sharing your life.
I have spent the last couple of weeks drawing. I have done over 30 images of women who inspire me by the way they live their lives. They have supported me in all sorts of ways. Drawing all of them has been hard. I have literally worked until I couldn’t look at a computer screen. My eyes grew cloudy and burned continuously late into the night. I have learned how to handle new details of how to make each drawing better. As I learned new things, I had to resist the urge to go back and do it to the drawings I had already completed.
I have written stories about how these women’s lives have pushed me on. It is such a blessing to live in a community where there is good life. You are surrounded by good life, just step outside yourself and see.
This woman here is good at everything she does. She dances. She draws. She helps others. She loves her family. I love watching her life because when it is all said and done, life will be broke and she will be rich. She is using it all.
