Empathy and Compassion…

Ennis6We are all individual and each of us have our individual burdens and trials in life. And no one really knows what another is going through. One suffers cancer, one depression, another loss of love, one betrayal, one money issues, another self-esteem issues, then another something else and these things are usually not seen. Much is hidden behind the image that a person creates or that other’s perceive. Some hide behind a smile, others wear a frown with their anger and hurt on their sleeve. And differing human coping mechanisms can be in the same person, but at varying times.  Human beings are complex.
And really and actually, no one knows why humans have their specific to them individual burdens and trials, but God.
Think back to what Robin Williams’ death shows … a suicide of a tortured soul. He had the talent to entertain and to make others laugh and to feel enjoyment, but he was so tortured  internally that he left behind three children, a wife and what appeared like a happy and fulfilling life. We don’t know why and never really will why he took his own life, we can only surmise.  Only he and God know.
But then there are things called empathy and compassion for your fellowman that are in held in the hearts of those who believe and love God. Those without compassion and empathy in their heart can sink into evil able to do horrible things to self and others…such as addictions, lying, manipulating, cheating, maiming, killing, etc..
We are witnessing this with the cult of Islam. They show no compassion or empathy for others, not even to self.  We are witnessing this on all levels everywhere. It’s in the energy of our world today.
We each have our life to live.. and hopefully we are able to have compassion and empathy for others who are living theirs along with having it for ourselves. That is what we do as children of God.
The energy on the planet is intense right now and many can’t take it. Can’t you feel it, see  it, even hear it?  It surrounds us and hangs thick in the air, on the airwaves, etc.  permeating the world.  Therefore,  we have a choice, we can  turn and succumb to evil as evil wants us to do, or rise and lift ourselves out of it turning to God and fill ourselves up with empathy and compassion for self and others. I don’t mean have tolerance for seductive evil, such as libs/ Dems progressives/ communists have and do and  that evil promotes doing…a  bit of good upfront to promote their convoluted agenda with much evil going on, under, around and hidden.
One definition of evil is, to have no compassion towards your fellowman with the ability to act on it. And this may be accomplished in and behind the facade of doing good as that is Satan’s perfect way of expressing and promoting evil… seduction. 
 
Compassion begins with self… sound values and thoughts, morality, virtues, health mentally and physically,  goodness –  but not fake goodness that evil  and insecurity hide in, but genuine goodness  with empathy towards yourself and your humanity. You can’t give to others what you don’t have for yourself.
We are living in the time of anti-Christ. .. anti-goodness, anti-real compassion, anti real empathy… being replaced with fake compassion, empathy and goodness wrapped up in evil for Satan’s agenda, for the  purpose to rule, dominate and control every aspect of lives.  Satan and hell are controlled restriction and oppression. God and heaven are freedom.
It’s going to get rough… then rougher…  
Protect your soul because Satan wants it.

Memories of my Dad that fill me with his love and…

A2AC1define my worth and character forever, no matter what happens in my life. In my early twenties,  I was getting ready for a formal evening out, designer dress, the works. While getting out my attire, I realized that my satin evening purse had a busted chain… not only that, but it was broken in a way that… Oh my gosh!  I thought could never be repaired and certainly not in time for  my date. It was the only  purse I had that would work with my dress and I just had to wear that dress with that particular evening purse!

Because I had chosen this particular dress just to go with the evening purse my Dad had given me for Christmas which had been his perfectly selected  gift wrapping for his generous Christmas check.  My Dad had shopped for and selected this elegant designer purse just for me and I liked it so very much for just that reason.

I rushed into the library where Dad was watching TV and in the brokenhearted frustration drama only a twenty year old preparing for a black tie affair with her beau could create,  held up the purse that was destined to  ruin the whole evening.

“Daddy can you fix it? Please can you?! I got my dress just to go with the purse you gave me. Please Daddy, I have to take it tonight. I just have to! But I think it’s broken for good … Daddy, what do you think?”

He turned from the TV with a slightly  amused but concerned smile as he took my purse from me and said. “Go on and get ready. I will see what I can do.”

Feeling better that my Dad was on it, I showered then rushed into  the kitchen to see my Dad at the breakfast counter with his tools out working on the chain of my purse.  There was also a needle and thread involved.

I observed Dad’s work table as I thought, Daddy can sew?… “Daddy, how’s it coming along? Do you think it can it be fixed?”

Dad glanced up at me and said. “Don’t you need to be getting ready. Your date will be here soon.”

Okay… Daddy, okay … I am. I will.” As I rushed back to my dressing area and proceeded to do my hair, make up, etc. I was frantic. I had no other purse that would work with the dress that I so wanted to wear.

I walked into my bedroom to get my dress and there on my bed sat my purse.  I held it up and I couldn’t even tell it had been broken. I quickly put on my dress and finished  getting ready, putting my lipstick, hairbrush, etc, into my treasured Dad given, Dad repaired purse.

Then, the doorbell rang.  I hurried down the hallway to the entry hall to find Dad talking with my date. Dad smiled in pride when I entered…. his eyes lit up as they always did when I entered a room. “Dad, you did it, you fixed my purse.” I gave my Daddy a big hug. “Thank you Daddy! I love you.”

Dad’s reply. “You’re welcome honey. You look beautiful. Have a good time.”

On the arm of my date, as I stepped out the front door wearing my poofy black satin dress with my treasured Dad given and repaired evening purse over my shoulder, I turned back to smile at Daddy, our eyes met in our special love,  my knowing of his pride in me and my respect  for and trust in him.

My Dad has been gone four years, memories often come to me of all theDadandmemahog special ways that he treated me that instilled his pride, love and created my self-worth as a woman. That imprinted, taught and showed me how I want, need, must be treated by any man and most certainly ‘the special man’ in my life.

Those moments of love, respect and pride that my Dad instilled in me created my worth. My Father,  a master engineer and builder who built the Valdez terminal in Alaska, refineries and nuclear power plants around the world, this former Navy man, pro-baseball player, pilot, yachtsman, golfer, intellectual giant, leader in his industry, accomplished masculine towering man, sat in his kitchen late on a Saturday afternoon foregoing sports on TV,  with tools and a needle and thread Daddy at pooland worked on my purse, until it was fixed perfectly for me, his precious blessed to be his daughter, because this man of so many worldly accomplishments knew his most prized and devout duty was that of being a Father.

Recently, I reconnected in friendship with my first college boyfriend and he told me how the talks with my Dad and the way in which he observed my Father treating me, molded him as a man throughout his whole life. That he observed a man protective of his daughter and that he knew, that I knew, my Dad, while being tough on me in order to stretch and to build my character, at the same time, would always protect me.  He recalled that even as immature as he was at nineteen, that when I took hold of his arm, even though I was strong, independent, out going and capable, that I expected him to protect me. And I do recall, this young man did protect me. He also told me after knowing me at eighteen, nineteen and not having seen me since I was twenty… and us now meeting up again decades later… that my Dad would be impressed and proud of the woman I have become. That I have femininity filled with my Dad’s strength of character and intelligence. And that he knew in a relationship that I  must feel safe with a man because I felt safe with my Dad because that is the world he created for me.  What a compliment and a blessing to have him share this with me.

On the flip side of this…My Dad wasn’t perfect and he also left negative imprints for me to see clearly, to break against, understand and to grow past. Because of his perfectionism and great accomplishments, while feeling loved,  I also had the imprint on me that if I wasn’t perfect, I was not worthy of love. Dad was tough on me, and held me accountable and would turn cold even harsh and withholding, when I displeased him and when those times occurred, I felt rejected, ugly, dumb, and unloved. So all my life I have been dealing with this imprint. Interesting, huh? As much as my Father’s imprint on me was that I was protected and loved…there was also the imprint that if I wasn’t perfect, I was not worthy of love.  Part of the duality on this planet and my growth to  recognize  and overcome to achieve wholeness.

As I have grown into life and full awareness, everything my Dad was as a Father, role model and teacher continues to incorporate fully in me and my psyche… both the positive and the negative. And I am fortunate that the tough way he dealt with me, at times,  and the way that he held me accountable, created  strength in me enough to have the tools to grow past his negative imprints. When you recognize the humanity in your parents is when you heal your wounds. What a blessed gift.

A Dad leaves his mark on the world by the love he gives his children along with many others as this gift floods out into the world.

A Father creates self-worth or not, in his children in everything that he does; by example, by actions, by words, and by unspoken looks.

Dad&Annbday2My Father was the example of a fine, great, generous, provider, a giver, a protector and even a fixer of chain woven with satin on a purse that created a memory in my heart that will last forever.

In the later years of my Father’s life, he shared  many deep feelings with me about his life, his choices, and about his love for me that revealed clearly his deep love for me, so that could release more of the pieces of that imprint that I am not worthy of love unless I am perfect.

Happy Father’s Day to my Father who is now in Heaven looking over me. Thank you for the gift of you in my life.

Ladies, don’t ever settle for less than your worth… Every woman, if  she was fortunate to have a good Father, deserves a man that treats her accordingly.  This is the blessed gift of a great man and Father, he knew in his soul the worth of women.

Also, the way a child observes the way their parents treat one another provides the standard with which they either will emulate or break against in their own relationships .

Ephesians 5:25-29 

Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church,

Ephesians 5:28 

In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.

Genesis 2:24 

Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.

—The way a man treats women defines his character, his soul, and his life.

Jesus loved and respected women.

We are all perfect in God our Father’s eyes.  As our Fathers on earth  define and polish us, in some people’s eyes, their Father on earth defines how they think God deals with, or thinks of them, defining  spiritual connection of peace, worth and security in self.  And this is another reason the Fathers of this world are so important.

Happy Father’s Day to all you great men in the world!

Suppression, oppression equals Sharia Law…

ATT00001Women you see in this burqa attire or with their hair covered in the Muslim way are under Sharia Law… they are under suppression and oppression because they are female.  Females are not equal to men under archaic practice of  Sharia Law, they are considered property and all Muslims are under this, if they denounce Sharia then they become infidels and are subject to being killed.

A few months ago, in a local restaurant,  I saw a woman dressed in burqa black head to toe, a truly ugly sight. This was a festive place filled with colorfully dressed women, well groomed with hair in ponytails or flowing down their backs, also being Summer, all were in shorts, sundresses or workout clothing… then there’s this sad woman covered in black standing over to the side. As I glanced her direction, I felt sickened for this sad sack being in the home of the free and the brave, covered completely in black, in this archaic oppressed cultist way, in 100 plus weather in one of the fashion capitals of the world.

In America, people are free to dress as they choose.. . so for this woman to be under that oppressive dress was a pathetic sight.  To be dressed in this manner, this woman had no choice, no rights, no freedom. Her sad face with her dark eyes darted around the area and I wondered what must this pathetic creature be thinking. Everyone was talking, laughing, eating and having fun while she was standing alone. Who was she with and why was she here?

Then three men approached her, one motioned to her to follow. They walked out with her following behind. So was she left in some corner off to the side, while the men ate?  A bizarre sight to observe in modern day America.

Sharia Law is as against women’s rights, freedoms, and equality as much as any practice could possibly be. Why are we allowing this anywhere in America? Sharia Law is not compatible with our Constitution or compatible with women’s rights or anything else in America. Why aren’t feminist groups up in arms about this practice? Sharia law should be outlawed in the US. Practicing Sharia should be considered a crime.  It is the definition of abuse.

If we disallow this practice in America, how free will these women feel and become?  Do they even know what freedom is, to feel their hair blowing in the wind, able to laugh, eat, have fun, to wear what they choose to wear… to be free? This is what Muslim men have fear of, women being free. Because women would not be around men like them were they free. Muslim men must be the weakest, most insecure, evil things that ever existed. They have no idea what love, respect and trust are with a woman.  They marry children, force women to cover themselves, curtail all freedoms, beat, rape, maim and kill the female.

“The hijab, the niqab and the burqa are the symbols of Islamic misogyny and manifestations of a culture that considers violence against women acceptable — the quran even says to beat women from whom a man may “fear disobedience” (4:34). I am sure, therefore, that this kind of thing happens far more often than is reported. Even when little girls as young as this are the victims.” Pamela Geller

Why would a 4-year old need to be covered? To stop Muslim men from desiring them? How sick and perverted is this cult?

http://pamelageller.com/2015/10/india-muslim-father-kills-his-4-year-old-daughter-for-forgetting-to-cover-her-head-while-eating.html/

The oppressed pathetic woman covered from head to toe in black on a beautiful summer day looked like she was in Halloween costume and I pondered the horror of her life … covered-up, under the control of  the archaic evil practice of Sharia Law and for men to treat her as they desire with no concern for her, raped, harmed, denied pleasure,  tortured, even killed and this disease is entering the US at rapid rate under Obama who is a traitor to all Americans, the Constitution and freedom.

Practicing Sharia is a crime, it’s against laws in US, not compatible with our Constitution and should be outlawed.

Global war on terror had been an effort to “stay free of Shariah,” or repressive Islamic law, until the Obama administration began siding with such jihadist groups as the Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliates. Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated the Obama administration.

These people cannot adapt to American ways if following Sharia Law. It is submission and is treating women like property or animals.  Muslims cannot be Americans and should not be allowed in America unless they adapt to our ways, our Constitution and our laws. Therefore, the obvious conclusion is that Muslims cannot be real Americans, so they should not be allowed in our country.

The Burqa and similar dress should be outlawed in America and all civilized countries as it goes against freedom and everything a glorious woman is.

A woman is the heart of a home and society and those who ignore this are destroying themselves as they destroy love, respect, refinement, grace, kindness, softness, beauty,  comfort, caring, everything good and worthy, etc

The Obama regime is full of radical Muslims and they are all traitors to America.

The needy self-absorbed man…

self-absorbedI have a male/acquaintance/friend who is in his 50’s and very ill. He has spent his life as a playboy being obsessed with how a woman looks and sex. He’s never married, laughed at it and put it down. He is  now alone and lonely. Parents are gone and friends off with their lives. He’s pathetic. I feel sorry for him, always have. He called me last night whining that he has no one to talk to. He is alone and can barely take care of his own needs. He needs assistance to shower, etc. 
He has only cared about himself and his needs and wants. He doesn’t even listen when you talk with him. I have talked about God.. but he laughs at me. He doesn’t think there is a God.
Men need women for much more than sex and how she looks. A man who objectifies  women usually turns out like this one … alone. I have seen it happen many times. When they get old or sick, can’t rockin’ roll and their resources dwindle… they are left alone with nothing. The women that he chose for her looks, only wanted him for what he gave her as in excitement or gifts while he only wanted her for her body and how it temporarily made him feel.
Men if you are fortunate enough to have a woman love you, you might want to cherish her for all her gifts. It’s been proven that a man needs a woman more than she needs a man.
Women alone live longer than men alone. Why is this? A woman assists a man in processing his emotions. She cares for and nurtures his needs. When he provides, commits and protects this creates a great balance. But when he doesn’t… it falls apart… the balance never occurs.
When a man is so needy that he is driven to suck off many women with no commitment, he is really cutting himself off from what he really needs, but this kind of man is too insecure, can’t allow vulnerability or be real within himself, so he distances emotions and feelings for the temporary charge and escape of sex and being in control and in the end he loses big time!  
Women can do this for themselves. They process their emotions more easily, so why would any sane woman want to take on the neediness of a man without his full commitment to her and respect of her whole self? Women who share their bodies with a man without the wholeness of commitment are fools. They are fools looking to temporarily escape who they are in reality and wholeness and it is a big fail in the end for both. 
The real deal with the ‘never married man’, forty and up, is they can’t commit, are afraid of failure and real intimacy. So, they objectify women and diminish marriage and commitment to make themselves feel better about their inability to commit, to choose, and to make long term relationship decisions.

Government serves the people, not the other way around…

??????????????????????????????? There is an often-told preacher story that goes something like this.  As a gift, the pastor was given a parking spot in the church for his long-time service.  He told them that he was so grateful, but really wanted the option of picking the spot.  Of course they agreed.  As the church members showed up to church the next Sunday, they were surprised to see the pastor’s parking spot nowhere near the front door of the church.  They found it in the last and worst parking spot on the property.

This pastor was giving the clue that the proper role of a Christian is not to have a place of privilege, but rather to have the privilege to serve. 

God and the spirit of serving have been taken out of our Government. Persons in government are elected and placed for the privilege to serve the people, not to be the privileged.

Our current government has become a distortion of corruption, perfect examples: Obamas and Clintons…

The smaller the government, the better the life for the people and that is why America was created the way that it was, to be by the people and for the people. 

We must return to the values that our forefathers put into place. Our Constitution and three branches of government were created for a reason, to protect the people from the government. 

  Reagan1

We must elect a President and a government that serves the American people,  honors  God, and our Constitution.  America was founded on Judeo-Christian principles and this creates the fiber of our county and made us prosperous, sound, and exceptional. That is why “In God We Trust” is on our money.

We must put God back into America! And become the light of the world once again. Without America where would the world be? Under dictators and rulers who rule over, instead of serve.

Satan, the first ‘community organizer’. Hatred of the good for being the good.

???????????????????????????????Anti-American strategist Saul Alinsky, leftist activist, mentor of Obama and Hillary Clinton, and author of Rules for Radicals. a book dedicated to Lucifer, the first community organizer, sets forth the strategy used against the U.S.

Hatred of the good for being the good.

PostAmericaD’Souza points out that Alinsky, as an atheist, did not believe in God but drew inspiration from Satan, who led the first revolt against the existing order. D’Souza talked to Stanley Fish, an expert on John Milton’s Paradise Lost, who explained Satan’s campaign against God. D’Souza pointed out that Satan’s revolt in Heaven and the leftist’s revolt against American society use the same tactics.

This strategy has four points.

One -Polarization; Satan has reached a point where he is deeply alienated from God. He doesn’t seek reconciliation, compromise, understanding, or a God-to-angel heavenly conversation. He wants war. “As Milton’s Satan puts it,” War, then, war open or understood, must be resolved.” (p.84)

Two- Demonization: demonization makes God a “tyrant, the symbol of the establishment. This makes Satan into a champion of resistance, of counterculture.” This revolutionary angel is combating “the tyranny of heaven.”  ( Recall God being booed at the Democratic convention?)

Three – Organization.  Organization the basis being envy. The heavenly ‘community organizer’ seeks to exploit envy among dissident angels, and urges rebellion. For Satan, envy is a great motivating tactic, and he excels at building coalitions from these marginalized angels. (Like Satan, the Obama regime focuses on and uses  ENVY. Blacks envy whites. Poor envy wealthy.)

Do not be envious of evil men,
Nor desire to be with them. Prov.24:1

Obama-Lies-SCFour – Deception. The clincher is deception or “covert guile”. Satan knows he cannot defeat God in open battle; he relies on “deceit and cunning.” Since Satan cannot strike at God directly, he directs his attention (and his malice) toward his creations, Adam and Eve. When he approaches Eve, he disguises his person and his intentions, by making Eve think he is concerned about her, although what he seeks is her destruction. He also seeks to encourage dissatisfaction with the existing order. And does he feel any scruples toward deceiving an innocent? No, because he “has already rejected God’s moral order; consequently, he isn’t bound by moral rules.”

And, when one is not bound by rules, what freedom! Alinsky “wrote that morality and ethics were fine for those who didn’t seek to improve the world for the better. But for those who do, the ends always justify the means.” D’Souza then explains that Alinsky doesn’t reject appeals to morality or conscience; he just uses them when it’s useful to do so. (To implement the all powerful feeling of guilt as in continual use of the race card.)

“True revolutionaries do not flaunt their radicalism. They cut their hair, put on suits and infiltrate the system from within.”
Saul Alinsky

Hatred of the good for being the good.

???????????????????????????????Alinsky’s book dedication to Lucifer is more than just shock tactics. As D’Souza points out, Alinsky was serious about his choice. One hopes that Americans will be serious about theirs.

The choice is good or evil, God or Satan, morality or immorality.

And as Leviathan spins the web of fog to blind the weak and immoral people to the truth who have no ability to discern.  Good is seen as bad,  bad is seen as good, truth is seen as lie,  lie is seen as truth, because that is the way and agenda of Satan’s destruction.

What really died in Auschwitz?…

??????????????????????????????? The following is a copy of an article published in a Spanish newspaper on Jan. 15 2011.

It doesn’t take much imagination to extrapolate the message to the rest of Europe – and possibly to the rest of the world.

“EUROPEAN LIFE DIED IN AUSCHWITZ” By Sebastian Vilar Rodrigez

“I walked down the street in Barcelona and suddenly discovered a terrible truth – Europe died in Auschwitz … We killed six million Jews and replaced them with 20 million Muslims. In Auschwitz we burned a culture, thought, creativity, talent. We destroyed the chosen people, truly chosen, because they produced great and wonderful people who changed the world.

The contribution of this people is felt in all areas of life: science, art, international trade, and above all, as the conscience of the world. These are the people we burned.

And under the pretense of tolerance, and because we wanted to prove to ourselves that we were cured of the disease of racism, we opened our gates to 20 million Muslims, who brought us stupidity and ignorance, religious extremism and lack of tolerance, crime and poverty, due to an unwillingness to work and support their families with pride.

They have blown up our trains and turned our beautiful Spanish cities into the third world, drowning in filth and crime. Shut up in the apartments they receive free from the government, they plan the murder and destruction of their naive hosts.

And thus, in our misery, we have exchanged culture for fanatical hatred, creative skill for destructive skill, intelligence for backwardness and superstition. We have exchanged the pursuit of peace of the Jews of Europe and their talent for a better future for their children, their determined clinging to life because life is holy, for those who pursue death, for people consumed by the desire for death for themselves and others, for our children and theirs.

What a terrible mistake was made by miserable Europe .

A lot of Americans have become so insulated from reality that they imagine America can suffer defeat without any inconvenience to themselves. Recently, the UK debated whether to remove The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it ‘offends’ the Muslim population which claims it never occurred. It is not removed as yet. However, this is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving in to it.

It is now more than sixty years after the Second World War in Europe ended. In memory of the six million Jews, twenty million Russians, ten million Christians, and nineteen-hundred Catholic priests who were ‘murdered, raped, burned, starved, beaten, experimented on and humiliated.’ Now, more than ever, with Iran, among others, claiming the Holocaust to be ‘a myth,’ it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets.

BarackHow many years will it be before the attack on the ‘World Trade Center’ ‘NEVER HAPPENED’ because it offends some Muslim in the United States ? If our Judeo-Christian heritage is offensive to Muslims, they should pack up and move to Iran, Iraq or some other Muslim country.

What inspires you to love?

TreeAnn6Is it beauty, fun, kindness? Is it sex, liking the samethings, or experiences shared? Is it commonalities, differences, or the energy you feel when you are with the person? Is it their actions, words, or that their words and actions match? Is it consistancy, compatiblity, tension or comfort?

Is it inconsistancy, uncertainty, excitement, thrill,  or danger?

Different things attract  the inspiration to love. Some of the attractions are healthy and some not. Sometimes, it’s a mixture of the good and the bad? Some people think they love someone when they feel like they felt with their parents or caregivers. They attract to the familiarity of whatever they experienced then, so it ‘feels’ like love, ‘like home’, when perhaps, it isn’t. It’s just familiar, like a habit, but  it’s what ‘feels’ comfortable, like an old shoe and so they think it’s love.

If the past was healthy and nurturing that is great, but if it was one of discord, addictions or dyfunction, not so great. Those imprinted patterns are difficult to break and they can guide either to goodness or destruction.

So, ponder what inspires you to love and attracts you to someone as it’s the basis of the relationship, its journey, its joys, its pain, its success, its harm, or failure.

“But does he who loves someone on account of beauty really love that person? No; for the small-pox, which will kill beauty without killing the person, will cause him to love her no more.

And if one loves me for my judgment, memory, he does not love me, for I can lose these qualities without losing myself. Where, then, is this Ego, if it be neither in the body nor in the soul? And how love the body or the soul, except for these qualities which do not constitute me, since they are perishable? … We never, then, love a person, but only qualities.”  Blaise Pascal’s “Pensees”

The above is an example of shallow love…

We all lose our ‘qualities’ eventually  and when we do, is when we will know if we are loved and if we love.

The awareness, blessing and grace to love without the distraction of qualities and traits is  a genuine gift and if we love sincerely love  will  eventually evolve into this.

What attracts you to love someone? Ever really thought about it deeply, beyond the face, figure, abs, smile, etc?

“The gift from God for the ability…

to love is its own reward – nothing else is required.” Ann Dillard ???????????????????????????????

Love is not about recieving, getting, or taking, it’s about giving.  I am a giver. I was born that way and I have had much pain in my life for being so and I didn’t/couldn’t understand why? Why was I hurt, betrayed and taken advantage of by those I loved and who professed to love me? Would a time ever arrive where I felt loved, nurtured and given to?

In the past,  felt I needed love, so I loved the wrong people. I loved those without the ability to love me in return. I loved people that took from me, used me and took advantage of the naivete of my pure heart.

Then I had the realization… that my ability to love was a gift from God and nothing else was needed or required as that gift of the ability to love was the greatest gift that anyone could ever have and I became grateful, thankful and full and without the need to be loved by others. I feel love and know what love is and what love isn’t and that is a blessed gift.

I have a full heart… and even as many have tried to take it from me and to destroy my heart because of my gift of love from God and my ability to love, my heart has stayed pure, whole becoming stronger and wiser. Sure, there were times, I didn’t think I could live throught it and felt so devastated that I thought I would die baring the pain of it all, but I always turned to God and by so doing my heart came back to the fullness of love. I love me now fully and completely so the desire to be loved by others is not there. If I am fine, and if I am not fine. It’s about them, not me because I know me. I know my heart and I love them both.

Love is not sex. Love is not getting. Love is not taking. Love is giving. People walk around looking for love, wanting to be loved, needing love wanting someone to fill them up.  Why don’t people, instead desire, think and say, I want to love, I want to give love, I want to love someone? They don’t because they are lost and seeking… instead of found and giving. 

I have never really been or felt loved in my life except from my father and God. I never felt loved by my mother. She didn’t have that ability. She was a good mother in ways and a horrible one in others. I never felt loved by my siblings ever, even as I gave them love, they would hurt me time and again. I knew one of my grandmothers loved me and a grandfather loved me. Another grandmother claimed to love me and did in ways, but she was actually too selfish for me to feel that love fully.  All human beings are flawed in varying degrees… only God’s love is pure. And the closer a person is to God the more that they know what real love is…

Men were after me for sex, that they found me attractive, or that my Father was successful so they wanted that association. But I never felt truly loved only that I made them feel good about themselves. It always felt shallow to me on levels and soon proved to be that.

Sex comes after love… and sex is not love. Sex is one expression of love.

As I have lived and aged, I realize that none of that mattered. What mattered is that I loved. Iloved my mother, even though I never had a real conversation with her. I loved my sisters and helped them even though all they did was harm to me. They never helped me even once in my life. I loved other relatives and they loved me when it was convenient for them, and that is key. People can only love as much as that which they have inside. If they have no love inside, they look to get and take instead of to give.

But love derives from self love. I am not talking selfish love because love is selfless. I am talking love of self …  genuine love from God… that gives a person the realization to care for themselves, their body, mind and spirit, to stay connected to God. Addictions distort and interrupt that connection even completely breaking it and that is what I see today, addictions replacing God’s love.  The focus is on sex, escape, greed, material things, envy, immorality, etc. Love has been/is distorted on earth and becomes more so it seems each time I look. Men focus on sex like I have never seen before. It’s pathetic. Women have sex like men…and that is not in the innate nature of the feminine. Love has been propagandized into being something it isn’t.

When you know the love of God and stand strong in that love, you are quick to recognize that which is counterfeit.

I know I am blessed. I am loved by God and I realize now that I know love… real love because I have the ability to love and in that love I can discern truth from lie, good from bad…   I have grown in that love to know, it matters not that I have not been or felt loved, what matters is that I have the ability to love.

So when I die, it matters not that I never felt loved on earth. What matters is that I die knowing, I leave earth in love and go back to the love of God.

And this knowing comes from awhole lot of living and  the love in my heart.. .

Lords of Wars…

 ???????????????????????????????Years ago, I believe it was 2003,  I saw a movie titled the, ‘Lord of War’… starring Nicholas Cage. It made an impact on me then. I saw it again recently and the impact seered into my soul on a level of awareness such that I recommend everyone see this movie now. It is based on actual events and shows clearly that governments and dictators around the world  fund wars for their monetary gain in the buying and selling of weapons of war and they may even fund both sides of a conflict with little concern who wins except that they make a profit. 

This is difficult to comprehend for those of the good, those of God who believe that our government does things for the good. America is the best country on the planet founded and created on individual freedoms and rights,  under God and In God We Trust, but  as the years have passed, we have been inflitrated by evil. Evil always seeks to destroy good as it’s their nature to do so. Cain killed Abel because he was good. Cain was envious of Abel’s goodness. Obama and other evil leaders promote envy to achieve their agenda of chaos, destruction and rule, dominate and control.  America is under the leadership of evil at this time… Bengasi, Fast and Furious, trading terrorists for a deserter, pulling out of war too soon allowing for evil to grow as in ISIS, slaughering Christians around the world, not standing with Israel, the rapid infiltration of Islam which is a practice of killing, opression and rule, dominate and control over every aspect of life, assisting in civil chaos for their agenda of control of the non-seeing ignorant, booing God at the Democratic convention, the list goes on… 

Those who are deceiving and destroying in the name of evil while trying to make themselves out to be of good. Truth is lie. Lie is Truth. Good is bad. Bad is Good…

Evil easily plays both sides of the fence… it can flip, deflect, blame, spin and justify its actions at a moments notice… as in Hillary Clinton campaigning against Obama and bad-mouthing him, then working in his administration, supporting him,  then now campaigning again and  bad-mouthing him again. She can easily and without conscience claim Obama right or wrong depending on her agenda, just like Obama can claim something right or wrong for his. Evil is duplicitous. 

Each man has an internal moral adjuster that which defines who he is, what he does and what he will do or is capable of… his conscience.  

At times, good must stand up and not only  expose, but  fight evil or good will be destroyed and eradicated from the Earth as is the goal of Satan. Satan captures souls. God saves and frees them. Satan wants to rule over God’s people and take salvation away. We are in a time of Anti-Christ… a time when the Seven Deadly Sins are taking over… 

God gives life and loves human beings. Satan loves death and hates God’s human beings. Satan loves things of this earth and puts earth before humans. God decreed humans to have domain over Earth. Satan seeks to destroy all things of good, to destroy and capture souls into the evil of depravity. Satan wants rule, dominate and control over everything and everyone. God/Christ gives life and life everlasting. God is Freedom. Christ saves souls.

2 Timothy 3 New International Version (NIV)

3 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents,ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people. 6 They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over gullible women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires,7 always learning but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth. 8 Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these teachers oppose the truth. They are men of depraved minds, who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected. 9 But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone.
A Final Charge to Timothy
10 You, however, know all about my teaching, my way of life, my purpose, faith, patience, love, endurance, 11 persecutions, sufferings—what kinds of things happened to me in Antioch, Iconium and Lystra, the persecutions I endured. Yet the Lord rescuedme from all of them. 12 In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, 13 while evildoers and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, 15 and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God[a] may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
This link below is a a letter I found years ago when I was doing research for a script I was writing… everyone should read it as this tells it clearly as it is…

We are in the war between Good and Evil… look into the eyes of others with your God given clarity to see which side their heart resides.

Evil flourishes when good men do nothing..  

The children of God are on this Earth but not of it. Earth is all Satan has in which to rule over… the more he confuses the people, the more control he has over Earth… 

This is a time to stay close to God, clear in your heart, mind, and spirit and to protect your soul… as the deception of Leviathan accelerates, protect your soul from the sins and corruption of evil. It’s a time of testing, clarification and defining…watch, look, listen and see clearly…
