I don't even know where to start or how to start this blog. I have a million things running though my mind. I'm frustrated, disgusted, sad and disappointed. I'm a very passionate person as y'all know. I hate politics and try to stay out of them but I can't ignore this one. California's Prop 8 to protect marriage between a man and a woman. I voted YES to keep it between a man and a woman. I voted TWICE, why? Because the first time riots broke out and people whined until it went back to court only for a liberal judge to overturn what the people had already spoken! We voted a second time and again it passed and again a judge has overturned it. Remind me again why I vote?! Where are my rights!? Equality, really?! So frustration is there and I am literally disgusted at people comments towards my view. You can call me a Jesus freak, you can call me a Christian who is ignorant, you can call me a naysayer....call me whatever you want. I DON'T CARE! I've heard it all today and you know what, it makes my eyes open up even more to see how disgusting this world is. It is a fallen place. God said it would be. If this world were perfect why would we need Him? People, I am not backing down. I have read the Word of God....it is real and there will come a day when every single person has to bow their knee before the Lord and we will be judged. Judge me, call me a Jesus freak. I am one. I love the Lord and I fear Him. I will not conform to the sins of this world to be "accepted". And by saying that in no way means that I don't sin. I sin daily but I will not fall into the lies that the world has made so many people believe. My heart is literally grieving for those who are so lost and so blind. I understand that many of those people will never realize how lost they are until their day comes and it makes me sick. How I long for all of those I know and love to see the truth and to live by it. I don't care what the world thinks of me. I'm not here to be like everyone else. I'm here to be a light to this dark and dying world because we ALL need a Savior and I will stand firm and stand for Him until the day the Lord comes to take me home.
Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free. I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is. Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok.
