looking ahead…

January 21, 2010

my escape. thats what this blog has been for a long time. a place where i can come and talk about things other than my “normal” life. ive slowly pulled away from talking about issues that are very close to my heart…for several reasons…reasons i wont go into right now. perhaps some other post. but i wanted to tell you that next week this blog will be devoted to a very important topic. some may become uncomfortable with it, some may not. others might identify with it. some may flat out disagree. in either case…im looking forward to truly speaking my mind and reading your thoughts.

the topic…

abortion.

but not in the same way youve read here before.

so, until then…what is an issue, problem, concern, that is very near and dear to your heart?

    Holier than thou Christians and the way we treat one another.

    the stigma that comes along with being a single parent (in society & especially in the christian church) – no one talk about this topic much.

    Influence.

    Positive and negative. We all have it, but most of us aren’t aware of the impact our lives have for or in spite of the Kingdom.

    Looking forward to next week!

    Being open-minded. About how we share our faith. About how we live our lives. About how we treat each other. Christian or non-Christian. Christian or Christian.

    I am concerned for my kids half brothers and sister. Their parents are very self centered and concentrate more on themselves than their children…Their 11 year old has high blood pressure, a heart problem, and some other health issues. He goes to school stinky, doesn’t have any friends, is very anti social, and is failing the fifth grade. The three year old girl has contacted Merca from being dirty. The youngest child is 15 months old and is not where he should be developmentally. He is not walking or talking like he should be and it’s because his mother always had him tied down in his car seat or bouncy chair. Yet she doesn’t understand why child protective services keeps getting called to her house…and she has another baby on the way. The father, also the father of my three children has illegally changed his name and social security number to avoid paying child support for my kids and the three that he has with her. When she, gets her food stamps every month he is on her door step bugging her for food…she will give into him and let him go buy food for himself and his new girlfriend and leave his kids almost nothing.

    I am worried about the kids. I want to help them in every way I can, but I cannot put up with their mother or father. I don’t understand how she still has the kids. Aside from calling the state I don’t know what else to do for them, the kids, but to just be there for them.
