Delta is allowing sex scenes

Delta airlines has decided under pressure from a movie director to allow not only heterosexual love scenes but homosexual love scenes to be viewed during in flight movies. So instead of censoring out ALL SEX SCENES on in flight movies, they will now allow homosexual love scenes as well. Why? What happened to censorship anyway??

Television and movies have gone too far with language (everyone doesn’t curse) as well as sexual content on tv and movies while the average person with an ounce of morality is sitting back silently and passively complaining under their breath allowing this to take place without as little as a verbal or written complaint. Folks there’s power in numbers!!!

I believe everyone has bought into the whole “You’re being hateful if you don’t agree with me or my lifestyle ” mindset. NOT SO! I believe I’m only being hateful if I’m not showing love, consideration or compassion for others, not if I don’t want to see sex on a public viewing screen or if I don’t agree with a certain lifestyle.

Let’s go back to the day when, if you wanted to see sex on a screen it was in private, it was on a special channel after family television viewing hours or in a movie house where you made a decision to pay to watch with others.

If a person desires to watch such entertainment in public let them do it on their own personal devices, not in a place where small children, influential teenagers or people like me who would be very uncomfortable sitting next to someone in a public place while “mild porn” is playing next to me on a plane.

There’s enough wrong in the world, let’s not allow Hollywood, politics or the love of the almighty $$$$ to take control of our public airwaves and our lives.

Okay i’m off my soapbox ❤️

A Friend

I asked God for a true friend who I could do things with (female things not husband things). Someone I could spend time with because I’d started to feel a little isolated at home.

So, fast forward a little, I met a woman who lives in my neighborhood who saw me walking one day and asked to join me. I was excited because it seems as though people don’t want to be friends like they used to.

It just so happens she grew up in New Jersey and I grew up in New York. We are close in age, she’s a talker, I’m a talker but the more she talked and as sweet as she seemed, I started to realized she has a “potty mouth” (curses like a sailor). On our first walk I thought “ Oh Nooooooo” I don’t want to deal with this but during our walk we talked about everything my church (because she asked) scripture, our children, our husbands and before I realized it I stopped being bothered by her language. What I liked most about her is the fact the she was “Real”. No pretense just honest and kind regardless of her language.

After years of loving God, I have come to realize that we come into peoples lives for a reason and I truly believe just after walking together for a week, if nothing else she just needed someone to listen to her, she needed to vent because she has a sick husband and life has been difficult for her but she’s strong.

Now go back to our second day of walking, I talked to my daughter about this very thing in her frustration with an associate of hers. The very next day a devotional I read confirmed our conversation about why people come into our lives. God has a reason, we just need to be willing and patient enough to be used by Him in those relationships. God has no feet but ours. Let’s be willing to walk in His love if only by being a friend to someone who might be different from us.

There’s no need to judge anyone, He is the only judge and besides, we have not always been spiritually minded. It is only because of His Grace and His mercy that we are who we are through Christ Jesus.

“A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.” (Proverbs 18:24, KJV)

Go get your life

So my morning includes watching the local news station with my morning cup of coffee. Yesterday morning there was a guy on who sang a song and it’s words taught about living life fully so that we are old we have memories to share.

The song was “Everybody dies but not everybody lives”. His name is Steven Phillips, Midnight express a Georgia artist.

Verse;

“Do things when you’re young, then when your old you’ll have something to talk about. There are those who take chances, and those who never will, it’s best to go out knowing you didn’t waste Gods gift” of life so live.

So if I could, my advice today is the same as the song. Don’t watch people live (scrolling social media mindlessly) or watching others on television as a means of entertainment, instead get up get out and start living your best life.

I believe that television and Social Media is robbing us of life! We are healthier when we are more active. So get started living in “the present”. It is truly a gift from God and we get the chance to experience it. Think about it, we’ll never have another opportunity to live today again.

I’m talking to myself and to other “seasoned” people (older folks, empty nesters) because young people seem to have a better grasp on living their best life, if not only for a selfie opportunity, but they do know how to live for life experiences.

My daughter has this saying “Go get your life”, it’s funny but so true in this case.

Let’s do it!

Psalms 90:12

So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom.

Psalms 32:8

Don’t Force It, Be Gentle

I realize that after children, careers and aging together, things will probably never be like they were in the beginning of our relationship but by using positive energy it is easier, I have the power to make subtle changes in any moment. I do things like kiss my husband when he doesn’t expect it, show him affection if I want affection in return and I definitely have learned not to make him responsible for change in our relationship when he doesn’t see a problem with how things are!

Remember, we tend to mirror our parents relationships, so if his dad wasn’t active or affectionate or handy around the house then he might not be either without a gentle nudge from us and whether we like it or not, we do tend to “turn into our parents”

2 Peter 4:8

If we sincerely love one another, that love will cover a multitude of sin (issues)

Practice makes perfect!

Be Kind

Times are so different now which makes most any negative situation almost impossible to resolve without good communication.

The devil has made sure we don’t talk enough, we don’t touch and we don’t even make eye contact and because of that we can quickly misunderstand each other. Our lives are literally filled with STUFF! Work, activities, television shows etc.,

So, when disagreements or misunderstandings occur in our relationships and marriages, how do we handle them? Are you the type of person who shuts down, who avoids confrontations, or are you the type who gets overly emotional when it comes to confronting issues head on.

Well, no matter how you handle it, you can count on the devil doing his thing in your mind (thoughts), “You should’ve said”, ” Why did you let them get away with that”, “They don’t care about your feelings anyway”, “You should be sick of this….. and I could go on button I’m sure you get the picture. My point is, don’t allow the enemy of mankind and everything that is good, to cause you to be uncomfortable about speaking your feelings, speaking your hurt, acknowledging your pain to the one person you vowed to love forever.

Be sure to always pray for peace and understanding in your relationships then speak your heart regularly, not loudly and not in anger, and definitely not with accusations. Instead make your point softly, with love, in a kind way, in hopes of a resolution almost every time.

Remember, practice makes almost perfect!

Ephesians 4:32

Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another as Christ forgave you.

2 Timothy 2:24

And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful.

Don’t accept just anyone into your life

In a time where so many are searching out true love, don’t assume anyone is desperate enough to put up with your foolishness. When seeking out a relationship you should always put your “best foot” forward but don’t lie about who you truly are or suppress your normal behavior (bad habits) too long. If you have issues, share them and try to work through them (therapy). It works! I know because I had to see someone after my mom passed away. Therapy is so important especially if you recognize a problem with you in past relationships.

No one deserves your brokenness when you can get help.
