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.
Remember that one time my husband bought a tv wall mount and then I decided we needed a new tv stand? And then it made me realize our dark furniture would look way better if I lightened it up? And then it was time to get rid of the old dark throw pillows and dark rug? And then all of a sudden that fireplace looked so out of place. So we gutted it. All because we put the tv on the wall! Here’s a little walk down our DIY family room makeover. Before . I started with this old corner cabinet that i got for free years ago and painted chocolate brown. I dusted her off and went to town with chalk paint. Then I got rid of the old dark rug and started changing out our throw pillows. Then it was onto the fireplace. Before Chris took out part of the wood floor to extend the floor of the tiny fireplace. We also cleaned out the fireplace and sprayed it with cream paint that can withstand 1,200 degree temperatures. And then we sucked out the old volcano rock and put in this fire glass fr
