The rabbit and the dog and the cat and the song. This is what my days have been so lately. I have worked so hard at becoming the best coworker I can be and still sometimes the negative thoughts come back up at me. One day I will look back and see where I have been and where I should be. What is wrong with my heart and what is wrong with my mind. Who accepts me for me and who accepts he for he. I don’t really know what the future holds but the life a bandit is not for me. Sometimes we just need to type out words and thoughts that may not even make sense but in another realm they are all too familiar. Does anyone in this world succeed or is just the ones from a hinterland. He came about one day without even knowing that he was the prince of the land and he was in charge of all understanding. When the understanding was given a name the prince lost his loyalty. Then the queen arose out the ashes and overthrew the understanding. When the understanding fell into the river up rose corresponding. Corresponding married the queen and became the royal court in never never land.
If you think none of this makes any sense just think of how we blindly follow what people say on social media and make arguments.
To tie into my previous blog on Yes I partake in Lent…..No I am not Catholic I kinda want to delve into the subject of individuality. I, as an individual try my hardest not to be judgemental of any particular religion. I was reading a blog yesterday and the writer wrote: I don’t want the voice in my head that sometimes questions whether my God is the “right one” when I’m certain that there’s a girl somewhere whose Muslim or some other religion. ( Click here to finish reading) My spirituality is defined by the individual relationship I have with my God. I do believe my God is the one and only true God and with that my responsibility is to act in Peace and Love. I am not at peace if I am arguing with others about whose God is right. Now my God does call me to a fulfill a great commission. Fulfilling that great commission has nothing to do with numbers. We are not going to stand before God and Him say Ruth brought 700 people to Christ and Miranda only brought 1. Ruth you may enter, Miranda you may not. God looks at Ruth and says you brought 700 people to Christ , job well done. Miranda you brought 1 to Christ job well done. God would never compare his children.. Sometimes I have to remind myself that I am only responsible for planting the seed and God makes the seed grow. God only utilizes me to grow some seeds not all of them and most times not even the ones I had planted. Beware: Individuality could be my worse enemy as well if i fail to protect it. If i get wrapped up in my individuality without God I become selfish and my spiritual life will suffer. This can come in the form of choosing to stay home and watch online services. I will still read my spiritual growth books and study my bible, but alone! i have in the past fallen into the I can do it all on my own trap. This sets me apart from fellowship with my brothers and sisters and will stunt my spiritual growth. If I am not growing I am not fulfilling Gods plans for my life. So to recap my relationship with God is an individual choice only I can make. Once I make this choice God treats me as an individual. My relationship with God is only between him and I. The relationship is not a threesome which involves Ruth, God, and I. This would cause great spiritual pain, envy, and feelings of inadequacy. I worship God on an individual basis. I love God on an individual basis. I give him my all as an individual. When I worship, pray, meditate the world stands still and its only him and I. To realize individuality is to realize that Christ died on the cross for me and only me. The greatest gift of all is realizing he loves me as an individual. I encourage you to delve into your own individuality with God!

I stuck the beautiful heart-shaped cake in the oven. Then I added the potatoes, corn , and chicken to the boiling water. It was that special time of year. This was going to be one Hot valentines day. After doing homework with the children I removed the cake from the oven and added red food coloring to the frosting. After I added the shrimp and crab to the water the kids and I frosted the cake. I got the kids ready for bed early popping in their newest Disney movie. We were going to have an in-house Valentines Day. A half hour later I checked on the kids and they were sound asleep but he was still not home. I wonder what had happened. I wonder if he got in an accident. No call, No show, I was really starting to worry. I try calling his cell phone and no answer. I waited another hour and finally I heard the exhaust pipes of his motorcycle. Whew, well at least he is safe. Two hours late but safe. He walked in the door, he reeked of alcohol. I couldn’t believe it. Valentines Day and he is out drinking with someone else possibly even some other woman. I hugged him as he walked through the door and told him I was worried about him. He became very angry and threw me up against the wall. He told me goodnight and went to bed. I was devastated. I never wanted to celebrate another Valentines Day again. The following year didn’t prove to be much better. Instead of getting chocolate and roses it was black eyes and bruises. On February 11, 2010 the abuse landed me in jail. Year 3 and yet another horrible Valentine memory. In 2011 once again I was in jail on Valentines day and 2012 , well lets just say at least I had my children in 2012. 2013 and 2014 missing my children more than anything and the Valentines Day was not helping in easing the pain. Today! Today, is February 14,2015 and guess what? My Valentines Day rocked. God woke me this morning saying Happy Valentines day Sweetheart. God has been whispering sweet nothings in my ears all day long. God is my rock, my strength and my Love for life. God is my number one Valentine and when he asked me to be my Valentine all my negative memories have faded away. Only God can take a mess and clean it up with Love. The best part about it is Gods love is so supernatural that no human on earth can be the Valentine that God is to be today and forever.

Seahawks or Partiots?My feed is blowing up right now. Most my friends are rooting for Seahawks. Me, I am rooting for NO MORE!
I used to say I don’t believe in super bowl sunday, its national domestic abuse day. For years I had been taught that super bowl sunday has the highest reported incidents of domestic violence than any other day of the year. This is a current controversy though it doesn’t really matter which day it ranks. What matters is that partners engage in domestic violence at all. I was taught this and believed it way before I had been involved in a domestic abuse relationship myself. Being involved in the situation intensifies my displeasure for the sport all together. Super Bowl XLIX has changed my views just a bit. This year in particular they are making monumental history. Let me tell you why. This super bowl is running a 60 second public service announcement specifically geared towards Domestic Violence Awareness. This is determined to draw great awareness to an awful secret which plagues our society. So kudos to NFL and thank you for taking this initiative.
