No Gentlemen any more!!
So what has happened to all the Gentlemen?? I tell you what. I had to go into two different restaurants tonight and order food. One right next to the other one, walking distance. So I go into the Chinese restaurant, pick up my order , go next door to the Fish House and get my order there. When I turned to go out of the fish restaurant There were 2 men standing next to the door. Here I was with both hands full and do you know not one of them offered to move and open the door for me. UGGGGG!! What has happened to men opening doors for women, and helping out when they see a woman with her hands full. So men WHAT happened to being gentlemen?? I know women can be independent and such,,but GEEZE!! help a lady out when you can. Just because we are in 2017 doesn't mean manners was thrown out with the bath water. Where are all the gentlemen at?? WHERE!!!
Its a tough thing. We all have to go through it. None of us are exempt from it. None of us can escape to somewhere that it doesn't happen. There is no such a place.
The bible says it this way,To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: Ecclesiastes 3:1-22.
Well we have just went though one of those seasons with a dear friends departure. She has finally made it home. One of the saints of old. A elder to the ladies in our church. A Sister in Christ.
We met Mrs. Linda in 2012 when we started going to the church we attend now. She was always kind and welcoming. As time grew we just fell in love with this sweet lady. She was like a mother, grandmother and friend all balled up into one. Never heard her say a harsh word to anyone. Always told everyone she loved them and was praying for them. From our time of meeting until her departure to Heaven, we were friends. My husband and I would go and visit quiet often and minister the word to her when she cou…
Today couldn't have been more fitting. Today's photo is to be of Home Remedies. As of last night my lil guy became sick with cold like symptoms. You know the coughing, stuffy nose, fever, chills and so on. So what does this mama do? Well I slather him up last night in a homemade chest rub made from essential oils. Today I have made sure to keep the chest rub on him and have also put some Stress Away on him so it would help him to rest. But here is today's picture. When people get sick around here we try to use something that we have on hand instead of running straight to a doctor and creating a bill. So in the picture above there is Raw Honey (local), Apple Cider vinegar, Lemon Oil, Stress away oil, Lavender Oil, Peppermint Oil and Panaway Oil. These items and more that I have are used in several different ways. I have said in earlier post that when my family can be organic, we do. I try to buy the things that we can afford to be organic when I find it on sale. There a…
Isn't it funny how things can be misquoted or misunderstood. I mean someone can say one thing and then it gets turned into something totally different. It's like that child's game of Whisper. You know what i'm talking about. When we were kids, we would play this game where one of us would whisper a phrase into another friends ear. Then that friend would whisper the same phrase into another's ear and so on, and so on, until it got back to the original person. The object of this game was to show how easy it was to spread something but it not be the right tale. It's all in the telling and the hearing. The same can be for bible verses. I have written before about how some preachers will quote it as they heard it, instead of searching it out for themselves. Same goes for everyone else also. If we don't search it out for ourselves how can we take it at face value. You may be asking "Where is she going with this?" Well I have issues with bible verses…
