My So Called Life - The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

Embrace life -- both the sweet days and the bitter...embrace the joy and the sadness...the successes and the defeats -- for all of these things, both good and bad, have made you who you are.

A Call For Prayers, Positive Thoughts, Well Wishes - Whatever You Are Able To Do!

To all of my friends in the blogging world...if you are reading this, please offer up a prayer, a positive thought, a well wish...heck take a moment of silence and offer up time for the health of one of my friends.

This person has recently been diagnosed with a brain tumor. And I know this person needs every bit of help, support, and courage that can be mustered.

I believe that God hears us, and I know that Jesus listens when we talk...and I know that you all have different beliefs and different religions, but one thing is true. God is always listening...

So God...whoever you hold that to be...hears all prayers...so offer them up everyone!

Thank yo so much!

The Secret of Life - What A Mystery!

How many of us actually spend time pondering the meaning of life? I can't speak for the rest of the world, but I for one actually do spend time thinking about this unanswerable question.

Do I take the religious approach? - the secret of life is serving God!

Do I take the secular approach? - the secret of life is self indulgence!

Do I take the altruistic approach? - the secret of life is to serve humanity!

Do I take the subjective approach? - the secret of life is different for each individual!

Do we make this simple question more complex than it needs to be? I will let each of you decide what the answer to the question is...

Ann Coulter Calls John Edwards a Faggot - And The Right Just Laughs!

Since when is calling someone a derogatory name that most of society agrees is derogatory acceptable? When you are Ann Coulter and the so called MORAL MAJORITY of the REPUBLICAN RIGHT WING supports and financially maintains you.

Ok..so I can accept the fact that social conservatives do not agree with homosexuality. I can accept that they do not support gay marriage. I can accept that they believe it is a sin to sleep with someone of the same sex.

But why has it become acceptable in political circles to refer to an obviously straight man as a "FAGGOT" only in the name of being derogatory and spiteful. Coulter pathetically tried to defend her comment as a "schoolyard" taunt.

Would Coulter have ever thought of using the most obvious derogatory words in referring to Barack Obama as a N***** or Bill Richardson (a hispanic) as a SPI*.....

Of course not.

So where is the so called MORALITY of the MORAL MAJORITY now?!?!?

I think it is ironic that they refer to themselves as the Moral Majority. Where is their morality towards mankind? Where is their so called love of people? It seems to me that when the political "right" talks about morality they only mean it in the context of when you agree with them.

I for one think that is sad.

Would any self-respecting Christian want Ann Coulter as their mouthpiece? As their representative to the rest of the world?

In the name of Jesus, I hope not!

A Song From My Past - Burning Times by Rumors Of The Big Wave

The year was 1993. I was a freshman in high school, and my sister was a senior. She had this CD that I became fascinated with. It was by a band called Rumors of The Big Wave. I say that I became fascinated with the CD, but rather it was one song that truly caught my attention.

The song was called "Burning Times" - This song is about the witch burnings and the Inquisition carried out in the middle ages by the Church. The atrocities committed against the women of the time out of fear by a male dominated church, etc.

Now whether you agree or disagree with this, I encourage you to listen to this song.

I have always thought of this song over the years, but only recently found it online.

Enjoy!

I Know There Is A God - Because Only God Could Love People!

Have you ever just gone out of your way to be nice to someone only to have them treat you like shit? I just do not understand how people act the way they do. It simply blows my mind.

I mean...people have the ability to just be total shits!

It does not matter if they are family, friends, strangers, co-workers, or whatever. They can be absolute assholes, and what amazes me more is that they do not even care.

I used to like people. I used to be a people person. Not anymore!

But now...only now..do I realize why I have quality alone time each week. Because if I did not, then I would not be able to deal with the shits I see the rest of the time!

Avril Lavigne - What A Change?!?!

So has anyone else seen the latest video from Avril Lavigne? Her first single from her upcoming album, The Best Damn Thing, is called "Girlfriend".

The song has a definite POP feel but it is not TOTAL pop - the song combines the catchy melody and feel of "Complicated" but it is even more fun. Her last album was so dark and introspective, so I for one am glad that she is releasing a song that has no other purpose than to simply be FUN. It is very catchy and the video is funny.

No depth...no meaning of life...but definitely a fun song!

Oh yeah - did you guys know that Avril writes all of her own songs?

A Tribute To Three Friends Who Have Passed On - I Miss You!

So back in high school I worked at Krogers as a bagger and as a cashier. I knew a girl there named Donna. She was sweet and wonderful to be around. In college I knew two women named Adrianne and Miriam. I met them through church and they were great.

Looking back they each added something to my life whether it be small or large. Their memories have stayed with me over the years. Sadly, they each passed away from auto accidents.

But I wear a constant reminder of them and what they meant to me in my life.

3 rings around my neck - 1 for each of them!
