Today Standing in front of the mirror I took a good look at the person looking at me. I began looking at myself with new eyes and discernment. Before I could hardly look at myself because for years I didn’t like who I saw.
Today was different and difficult at the same time. Difficult stepped up and made me look at what I resisted for a lifetime. When I finally got the nerve to look myself in the eye I saw an amazingly beautiful person that I immediately fell in love with. The overwhelming love brought me to tears. I confessed my love for the person I was looking at-me.
I received a piece of mail that said, “Prepare Your Home For Seasonal Changes.” I thought I would look at myself and what I could do to prepare myself for the winter season. I would amp up my supplements to help ward off any viruses that would try to overtake me. Next I would pull my winter wardrobe from the back of my closet to make repairs and replacements as needed.
Since it’s beginning to be soup season I will collect new recipes I’ve never had before and try them. Um, just the thought of a bowl of delicious soup with crusty bread, apple crisp and warm apple cider as a chaser sounds great.
A nice sidebar is an early evening walk as the crisp fall weather kisses my cheeks while I enjoy the changing foliage.
How do you feel about the person you see in the mirror every day?
In light of all the happenings in the world-America in particular I have been wondering about a few things.
I wonder how many flu virus deaths there has been in the world-America compared to Covid 19. How come no one makes a big deal out of those lost lives.
What makes Covid 19 such a big deal? Is wearing a mask really helpful? Exactly what are masks preventing except for the inability to breathe? If there is a concern about what comes out of your nose and mouth then masks should have been a part of our attire since the beginning of time.
What if you have Covid 19 and you always wear a mask. Does that mean you are constantly reinfecting yourself by reloading your lungs every time you breathe in?
How would you revive some who passes out with a mask on and you have one on also? Do you just stand over the person and not doing anything because of your fear of Covid 19. At that point would you be thinking your life is more important than theirs? Jesus touched the lepers when everyone else was afraid to and they got healed when everyone else wanted to run away.
That brings me to another wonder. Why does it seem that fear is the major player in this pandemic? Every time you turn around the instructions, reasons and closings change. Most get worse. So after all these months Americans don’t know if they are going or coming or which way they went. All of the uncertainty, new directions, closures of jobs, schools, church, etc makes one wonder if it is a “plandemic,” instead of a pandemic.
So why does it seem everyone is treated like they are infected when most are not. Why doesn’t only the infected get quarantined instead of everyone?
Never in my life have I seen anything like this.
That is why I’m …. JUST WONDERING!
I saw sparkles in my head
Right before I went to bed
Sparkles sparkled everywhere
All around me and on my head
No matter how I moved my head
Sparkling sparkles were here to stay
There is violence throughout America like we have never seen before. Could it be a preview of what is to come if we hand over our freedom to a socialist agenda? Could everything that has happened and is happening designed to insight fear to make us run and hide, therefore relinquishing everything to the ones that have a plan to take over America and give it a “New Normal”.
They want to tear down and burn down and destroy businesses and homes. Some are being prosecuted for enacting their second amendment rights to protect and preserve their family and home. Ministries are being told how, when and where they can and cannot worship – their first amendment rights.
Many have lost their businesses because of a virus along with the livelihood benefited from them. Children have been snatched out of school and their lives are in a disarray. Some children may never recoup because school was their lifeline for meals and safety from abuse.
Everything has been touched and not in a good way, not in a beneficial way.
There are many thoughts on COVID 19. Some say it is a pandemic and some say it is a plandemic. No matter what it is called or what we think about it, it is here. What about the calculations of the positive and negative results? What about the death count between the actual COVID 19 deaths and the deaths that have been labeled COVID 19 deaths and the deaths were caused by something else unrelated? Who knows the true count? Maybe it is more or just maybe it is less than what is being reported.
What is driving this chaos that we are in? Fear is the answer. Fear is False Evidence Appearing Real. Fear has overtaken the Church and the world. Fear is ruling the lives of many. Fear made many run to the store and practically empty shelves of everything they imagined they needed. Especially toilet paper. A virus that affects the respiratory system but no toilet paper to be found.
The election is coming up soon. There is a choice between being sucked into a socialist/Marxist system or maintaining the present lifestyle. It is not about a promise of free benefits that seem too good to be true. They are. It is not about whether you like someone’s personality or not. It is about what is better for the family life.
In 1 Timothy 2:1 of the Bible there is an admonishment that we are to pray for our leaders who are in authority whether you like them or not. There is a benefit for praying and that is we may lead quiet and peaceful lives. It is known that many do not like the President that is in the office because of one or more reasons. Jesus said in John 8:7 He who is without sin cast the first stone. None of us are sinless so we cannot be throwing stones at anyone.
I am not trying to tell anyone who who to vote for or not to vote for. It is ultimately your choice you must live with. I am just expressing some thoughts I have had about the first half of this year. I am also looking at what the last half of this year might look like according to the choices we have. Maybe we all should try to envision what the rest of the year might look like according to the hand we have been dealt.
May we all see correctly.
As I was about to pay my phone bill I had a throwback moment when phones hung on the kitchen wall or sat on a desk in the hall. These days they are on the nightstand in the bedroom or maybe on the bed at night.
It’s amazing how this inanimate object has encroached upon our lives. Every where we go we drag it along-like we can’t live without it. Not only do we keep it by our side to answer it before it finishes the first ring but to reply to the bings, bops or buzzers for email, twitter, instagram and whatever else new and exciting is birthed from the world of technology.
I was caught up in that madness until one day I had enough. My gadgets are still in my bedroom but the bells, whistles and buzzers are turned off and on chargers to be ready for the next day. There have been times I’ve forgotten my phone at home when I went to work. The amazing thing was I survived without it.
At the end of the day it is a helpful piece of equipment that is for more than playing games and other non essential activities.
Is your phone and other electronic devices taking over and controlling your life?
