Sometimes we just need to take a stand and get on our soapbox!!!!!
Then again......we may just get ourselves in a dangerous situation like my son did here!
However sometimes you need to vent just to keep yourself from blowing up!
Since I'm close to explosion, I chose to do it here............
I am truly a "live and let live" type of person. First let me say; " I am a Christian".
I was not born perfect and God knew this would be the case, so long before I was conceived, he sent his son Jesus to pay the price for my imperfection. I try my best not to judge people or their motives because I'm not responsible for their thoughts or actions and they will not ever have to answer to me for anything. I also do not live my life according to what "others" think.
" The tendency to turn human judgements into divine commands makes religion one of the most dangerous forces in the world" author: Georgia Harkness
People judging others is one of my pet peeves! Another emotion I fail to understand is jealousy.
Awhile back I was at a function with a group of authors. One of my very favorite authors made an uncalled for, hateful remark, about another of my favorite authors. I was appalled by this behavior and so disappointed in this person. This remark was just made out of pure jealousy because the writer is as good if not better than the one making the remark. I am no longer able to read this authors work because I was so turned off by this. Why can we all not be proud of others success? Why do people feel so threatened?
I know I can't save the world or change anyone but I long to see people become more compassionate and treat each other with less judgement and jealousy.
"There are 3 great days in our life, the day we are born, the day we discover why and the day we leave this journey and find out if we learned all we should have in the school of life"
My prayer is that I can be grateful for all the blessings I've received and always see my cup as half full. Treat others like I want to be treated and keep my mouth shut about other people's lives!
I believe this wall says it all...............
AND ALWAYS REMEMBER............................................
Enjoy your day everyone!
