Take Our Guns Away Please. This Way Only The Bad Guys Have Them.

I don’t get too involved in many issues I have no control over and politics that are not going to be affected by the voice of the people. However, ” Gun Control” is one issue that I have to chime in on. The reason is because I feel we the people actually have a shot ( pun intended) at setting some issues to rest once and for all with our new administration.

When Obama was in office, anyone who paid any attention could see that something very wrong was going on when he made a big push to restrict Americans from owning weapons. He was doing this while at the same time he was writing checks to the muslim brotherhood for amounts like 2 BILLION dollars as ” gifts “. When you send your enemy or a group that wants to harm you a boat load of money, there is a pretty good chance they will take advantage of this by making their position against their enemies stronger. This proved to be true when the brotherhood bought more arms with our taxpayer money, courtesy of our ” leader”. They loaded up on automatic weapons.

You don’t need to be Colombo to crack that one. Obama trying to make us a weaker nation while doing all in his power to strengthen groups of terrorists who love to slaughter us and sharia us to death. I am still not sure that the Obama followers ever really got this, or maybe they did but they did not think it would matter.

That’s the international picture and how politics can play into it when you have a terrorist in office of the president.

In today’s national picture and with all the school shootings and violence, I was breathing a sigh of relief when I heard our American president is thinking our victims like teachers should be able to defend themselves against any student vigilantes or teens who are shooting up schools. I don’t know that in the end every teacher will be packing an AR-15 in class, but we are looking in the right direction. Equipping the victims, not making it easier for criminals to be sure they will not have to deal with return fire when robbing, stealing or shooting schools up.

So I just want to encourage all of you, even if you despise guns, to consider something:If we start taking guns away from people in an attempt to slow down crime, we are only making it EASIER for the bad guys to continue on with their bullying. You don’t have to like guns or have a whole collection but I believe in the times we live in you are absolutely kidding yourself if you think that taking guns away from private citizens would do anything but worsen the problem.

Look at it this way, obesity is a huge issue in today’s world. People everywhere are dying from obesity related issues.

What if the Surgeon General announced today that he was banning all Forks? After all, less forks mean less eating right?

Perhaps DUI rates are up so high that the government announces NO MORE CARS!

0BYx43TzWHQ0PPbVtbe8SVVdk2e.jpg

You would say that is silly correct? It’s no different from what taking guns away from people would be like. After all, forks don’t kill, cars don’t kill. People kill. And so it goes with guns. It’ our constitutional right and it is common sense..

I Feel So Guilty When I Discipline My Kids…Oh Yeah? Here’s How They Feel About You Then..

Many parents think they are building some kind of special, double top secret bond with their kid by not disciplining them.

The truth is, the respect factor for the ” cool ” mom or dad who lets their kid get away with anything, is down the drain. Will they  quit using you ? Of course not . They don’t mind using you but never will they truly respect you. Kids are no different then us, they want and need boundaries too. If you wont give them that to help them grow into responsible people, then click below for you parental label..

Heres Your Sign..

If you don’t have a backbone when it comes to issuing a consequence, grow one.

 

A Secret That Will Save All Parents Many A Gray Hair..If Implemented…

Although I will need to develop  an indivualized  Care Plan with you  when you  utiilize my services, I will be dropping universal tips on anything from parenting to depression when possible. 

Today’s tip is far away the most effective and the least intrusive  to make your life as a parent with a teenager or a young adolescent much easier. Most of us humans are immediately aware of things that are not right -or things that are not going well.

As parents, the very first target we have is our own children, they are the easiest victims  to catch doing what’s “not right” . Often times it’s over exaggerated as well  because of our own day or something that we are frustrated about. 

How many times have we all said to our children something like  ‘ don’t even start” . I had  a rough day already. I don’t need any more headaches.” Sound familiar anyone ? ( if you said no you are lying) lol.

. One year when I taught parent training for the state and I had about 15 parents in the class I asked for a show of hands for whoever could name the best thing that their child did the day before in their home. There wasn’t a hand up for a good 2 or 3 minutes. Next I asked, ” can you think of a few things that went wrong?” 

Every hand went up immediately. I followed it up with this statement. Wouldn’t it be nice if pointing out the negatives and the wrongs in your child’s life would change their behavior pattern. Of course, there was silence because I had finished my statement. The truth is negative reinforcement, whether on a child or an adult does not change long term behavioral patterns. That’s a proven fact. Instead of catching our kids being bad, we have to retrain our brains to to catch them being good.


 “Good”  is a very generic word so we need to narrow that down specifically to catch them doing something that you asked them to do. For example ” Jimmy , I noticed you made your bed before school today like I asked , I appreciate that ” 

If you begin to ” catch them being good’  you’ll find in a very short time  that the desired behavior will increase .  In 2-3 weeks you will notice a complete change. ( again, let me emphasize on an individualized family care plan, we would work out the specific motivators that your child is working for, and we would tie that into the positive behaviors, so after 3 days of positive behaviors, they would earn another step towards a bigger goal then just verbal praise. But that’s an individualized care plan. 


If you teach yourself to make 7-9 positive statements each day to your child  day, finding at least 7 or 8 positive things state to your child..when it comes time for correction it comes with ease. They aren’t feeling beat up all day long . 

 Think of it this way-  if we as adults at our jobs respond to positive behavior reinforcement better than constant criticism, why would you think a child could do better? 

So there is a very simple start to turning around the entire behavioral pattern of the kids in your home. For an individualized Care Plan and specific motivators that are long term, which you want to build into your routine.. Contact me ..

How About Puttin Your Hands Together In Prayer  For My Nephew Nick As He “Rolls” Into Alabama This Fall?? 

I know my sister Pam would appreciate a whole bunch of prayers this mothers day as she sends her ” baby ” Nick off to college. He is ” AllEverything“- lol– The grades, the looks,  Homecoming King, Scratch golfer, Captain Of Mens Volleyball team- but most importantly good people like his mama and daddy.

IMG_4549

I am hoping to comfort her worries by letting her see a show of my fellow bloggers around the world that they would be willing to launch a prayer or two for Nick’s overall well-being, safety, and a hedge of protection from the dark forces trying to take our kids out of the light these days…

IMG_4555

So if you consider yourself a praying person please like and say a prayer for Nick’s Alabama future. If you’re not a praying person yet, how about starting today? I truly believe we need to start using our networks as prayer coverings for each other. Lets start here and now !

IMG_4568

My data shows bloggers from 65 countries have been on this site..how many can I get an ” Amen” for Nick for today” In ANY language!
Thanks!

Have You Seen Any Acts Of Kindness By Kids Like This?

Every once in a while I see something that gives me a little bit of hope that there are still a few kids out there that appreciate kindness to others, rather then  ridicule and make  fun of people. Here’s an example of something that should be happening everywhere today but probably happens very rarely..

Why God Didn’t Bless Me Yesterday… ( I Guess)

Some days you just know you aren’t going to have Gods favor , right? I mean our works performance is off, we aren’t careful with our mouth and so on. Yeah that was me yesterday. Just didn’t get enough right to win the favor.

Whew! Yesterday was rough. If someone accused me of being a Christian, I’m not sure there would have been enough evidence to convict me. And I am only sharing the stuff appropriate for public blogging…lol

Past

For example in the morning at a gas station some old man took it upon himself to point to the cross hanging from my rear view and to the harmless radar detector under it and tell me that one of them needs to go! So I exhorted ( biblical, right?) him and pointed out that perhaps he should go change his Hooters shirt before finger pointing.

After that an old AC/DC song with totally inappropriate lyrics came on- and yes I blasted it and sang every word. I also had my FISH symbol on the back window too,  so that’s like double sinning.

Ok now it gets ugly. For some reason every time I am starving and go through a drive through for a sandwich, I NEVER get a red light so I can get a bite. But when I’m in a hurry somewhere I get every red light made. I ended up saying a word that rhymes with STUCK, BUCK, DUCK. A few times. ( Don’t act all shocked either )
About an hour later some heathen in a new Corvette cut me off the road so I almost hit a tree. I kept my mouth shut and refrained from saying anything.
However, I did happen to run into him at the next light and gave him a friendly wave telling him he was #1 . I learned that wave from Dale Earnhardt of NASCAR and he was a champion so how bad could it be?
So I finally made it to church. I listened as the preacher talked about being saved by faith and not works. My itching ears were scratched.
That really set me free and I actually was ready to roll out early but before I could he went into the fruit of the Spirit and the witness of the believer as well as maturity of the believer.
Then he cracked open the book of James and read on the power of the tongue. I turned my MP3 player off for this part and I realized that there was some good news and some not so good news.

Good News!
1- I’m saved by the blood of Jesus not by my works. There is nothing I can do or say to make God love me any more, or any less!

More difficult news-

2- I am supposed to be different then this world. In it but not of it. Growing as a Christian is critical. There is no putting it on a shelf- you are either going forward and maturing or slipping back into the world.

I learned that it’s not about how many times we fall, but how many times we get up. It’s about not buying the lies of the enemy. It’s about remembering the promises of God no matter what it looks like.

When the enemy of your soul reminds you of all your sin, remind him that as a believer , God sees our sin through the blood of Christ. All He sees is the blood sacrifice of Christ. My Godfather used to have a pad of paper he would hand to each of us as we were growing up. He would tell us to write down every sin we could ever remember on the sheet, and assured us nobody would see it.

After we reluctantly wrote them down, he reached behind the notepad and flipped over what was a blood red plastic cover. He then showed it to us and asked us what sins we saw that we had written. None. The red cover had made them go away. That cover represented the blood of Christ, and how God sees believers in Christ.

We do need to keep growing though because each day that passes in this world the armor of God becomes more critical. If you aren’t familiar with the armor yet , then today is a perfect time to look into We do need to keep growing though because each day that passes in this world it!

Bottom line here is I was just as saved yesterday as any day. It’s not what I do for Him, but what He already did at the cross .

Open Letter To The Addict-Real Open.

Dear Addict-

You are constantly shunned and shamed by people who have never walked in your shoes. You have felt like you are useless, worthless and a failure because you have been unable to ” snap ” out of it like your family or friends tell you. You have sat alone many nights contemplating taking your life. The people judging you each day are usually actually doing sinful things in their own life, but somehow it makes them feel better about themselves to put you down. You are not sinning, you are fighting a disease.

The truth is that addiction does not discriminate and truth be told, one of the leading group of professionals who are in treatment for addiction- are Doctors! You wont hear much on that, but know your not alone. Your no dirtier they are. You just wont have the white jacket on at your NA meeting.

Why don’t people go to the cancer wards all over and tell the patients to ” snap out ” of it? After all if you should then they should -right? Your self-esteem is low and people use your weaknesses against you and even for their gain. The egotistical judges in this world who drive by a tired and depressed addict on the street like to name call and say get a job. You know that if you could somehow get help and get well, you would love to work. Its killing you that you have this chain of bondage around you each day.

confusion

Nobody knows your background, how you became involved in whatever it is you are stuck in. As a matter of fact we both know that most of the judges out there would never have made it even half the time you have trying to battle this. They have sometimes never experienced childhood abuse, violence, trafficking, or incredible loss. They may not have a family with a history of addictions that they have had to fight like you in silence. You isolate, you then take a chance and go out in public, but if you fail, you resort back to isolating and contemplating life.

You know what? Good news for you today! The same Lord that died and rose from the dead loves you. He died for you too. He isn’t mad at you. He is a judge of the heart, not the outward actions. He is the only one who can give freedom from bondage. Don’t let the world fool you into thinking that you are a sinner and they aren’t just because your struggles are visible. Millions of those same judges are at home at night looking at child porn and other disgusting things. God knows it, so don’t sweat the small stuff. Pull yourself up and get back on the horse. It isn’t about if you fall, we all fall. It is about how you respond. Don’t stay down. Never stay down.

Next time you look in dismay at your scarred up arms – Remember These Scars.

Your value and identity and hope is in Him, not the hypocrites criticizing what they don’t understand.

The Day I Saw satan…

I’ll never forget where I was on that day. I was at the office where I met with families. There was a little television that the receptionist kept on low. We only had around 5 therapists in the office that day and it was quiet.

It would prove to be an ominous quiet that I still feel. Suddenly a woman therapist burst out with a loud cry.

. The rest of us got up to see if she was ok. As we all reached the little area at the same time we looked up at what she was seeing on the television.

All I remember is staring at the screen in disbelief and my mouth open but no words could be found. Soon after I became physically ill and was trying not to throw up as I grabbed my truck keys . I had to go get my kids. After all nobody knew when and where this thing would end. My boys were just in elementary school back then .

I snatched them up and hugged their necks real hard. Being a social worker I have seen about everything. Worked with some mean and nasty violent people

This was different. I realized then that satan is alive and his demons were killing my people. I’ll never forget it. Even now I can’t find words to describe it. I only can get any comfort in thinking of the eternal swim in a hot lake that will occur. I remember feeling like I wanted to go home. To my real home. I’ve seen enough.

I do believe there is a pattern that began about, well maybe 8 years ago. Did Hillary agree to sell out America to Obama and muslims just so she would get his backing when it came time for her to run?? Wow. But I totally believe it. After all, she has been supporting all of his anti-American efforts all these years. Plus her last name is Clinton. Enough said. If you still haven’t seen the light ( and you need not be Colombo ) please take another look..

She and Obama should be imprisoned right now, instead she is running for president?

Just to be fair Trump is no angel. After all, he asked a muslim protester to be removed from his speech, so he must be racist. He also made a few off the cuff statements that he regrets. So, I see why the libs are so against him…

No I don’t. I think they have had way too much koolaid.

Hey its just my 2.

Mailbag! Questions Only WE Dare To Answer!

 

Dear DLMK-

Long time reader, first time writer. Regarding the coming elections, I have a serious concern about Donald Trump. His obvious motive for what he does is to use money to manipulate, cover up, and taint the truth about everything he does not care for. We cannot let this country ” buy ” itself into rules and pretend they are valid just so we don’t have to deal with reality- while also getting it both ways. In my opinion we are simply fooling ourselves. Shame on us.

Sincerely,

Mr. Thomas Scott

VP-Atheists Association of (SE) USA.

Running for President -Agnostics of America


Dear Mr. Scott-

Thank you for your letter and also for following us. In response to your question, we also concur that oftentimes people find it easier to spend millions or ignore obvious reason in order to have things appear their own way. It is for this very reason that you will have our vote when you run for the top position in the Agnostics of America org. You clearly have the ability to be a bit more flexible in these areas.

DLMK

 


 

Dear DLMK-

It is with a heavy heart and a broken spirit that I take these ruthless jabs from Donald Trump, just for a few votes. My husband and I have served this country with honor and integrity for decades, while Mr. Trump has gone bankrupt 6 times on his way to becoming a billionaire. During my husband’s time in office, he was known by even the secret service to make the most use of his office than any president in history.

I am also proud to say the secret service team said that during all the time working while my husband was president, he took tireless measures to make sure his family was safe. As a matter of fact one guard at the oval office said that nightly my  husband could be heard yelling ” watch out for Hillary” – ” Watch out for Hillary” –Now that’s a family man. It isn’t all about the fun and games Mr. Trump.

Signed,

H.Rodham Clinton ( 3x Candy Crush Champion)
