You see, everyone wants freedom, but only a few want liberty, because we know that liberty comes with a cost.
And before you get all upset, let me show an example of true bravery. ⬇️ You see, bravery is doing the right thing, knowing that it can cost you everything. So, if you’re not willing to fight for your liberty, that’s fine. But I am begging you not to get in the way of those who are and will. Your opinions, comments and criticism are not needed. Untill you are willing to put some skin in the game as they say, go on ahead and sit down and put your mask back on. Shh!
My children will never be enslaved because half of America decided to choose compliance.
When you say you love me, but then tell me to go and get the jab when you already know my concerns, because you got it, I have to wonder do you really love me?
A real friend considers my uniqueness and physical differences that may play a role in how, I may respond to the jab.
A real friend understands that what may not cause them harm might cause me harm.
A real friend understands that I am fearfully and wonderfully made and I take my personal relationship with Christ, seriously.
A real friend sees me exercising and eating a nutrient dense diet that builds my body and my immune system.
A real friend recognizes that I do my own research and won’t blindly follow the government, media or doctors.
A real friend would warn me, if the road was out up ahead.
A real friend would know me well enough to know that I have made my decision after careful consideration.
A real friend would love me anyway and respect my decision, just as I have respected theirs.
A real friend would understand that one size does not fit all when it comes to medicine.
A real friend would never support any, mandate or rule that discriminates against anyone.
A real friend understands the importance of choice.
But, if my decision to abstain offends her and she determines that we can no longer be friends, I’ll let her know that I still love her as I love myself, which means I’d never knowingly ask her to harm herself to make me feel safe.
I am not scared, and I do not fear being sick as I know illness happens. “yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.” James 4:13.
While, I could spend my days worrying about what is happening in the world as many do, my time is better spent doing what Jesus has called me to do, which is sharing the gospel and living a faithful life, while there is still time, because as the Hebrew writer states, “And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes the judgment.” Hebrews 9:27.
Remember this, we have no control over life or death, no one can extend his or her life by one second longer than has been determined by God. “And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?” Matthew 6:27
How many times have you wanted to walk away from something that you knew was important, but no longer felt you could do? Or just that you felt that no one was really listening, so why bother? That is how I feel about what is happening in our country right now. Almost everyday there is a new challenge or battle to fight. A new adversity that seems to just pop out of thin air. For all of the battles that our country has fought to become that beacon on a hill for the world, it seems that has been replaced with a thunderous roar to destroy the greatest nation on this planet.
I guess it makes sense, since America, is the last nation standing on the precipice of good and decent in the world. Aside from Israel of the Old Testament our country is the only country to have been founded on God’s law, also known as the Ten Commandments. It was this belief that inspired the Declaration of Independence, the very document that no one seems to revere or recognize as valid in the “woke” era. The Founders believed that our people would walk in the liberty of Christ and thus would act morally and in an upright way. But as time and history has shown us, eventually man becomes tired of doing good and will create ways to defile and dishonor our Creator, Jehovah.
If I am being honest, I was beginning to lose hope. By now, I thought that more people would have awakened to the crimes against humanity that have plagued our nation for the past 18 months. Unfortunately, my appeal to human decency and morality has gone virtually unnoticed. I dare say, we are more depraved now than ever before in our short history as a nation. Though debatable in 2021, I still want to believe that there is still hope for us. I still want to believe that we can be restored, if only we have the will and the desire to remove the evil that plagues our nation. It will not be easy and it will not be pleasant. We are not only fighting a physical battle, but a spiritual one. Of the two, the spiritual is the most important.
If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear them from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. II Chronicles 7:14
It is time, it is time for every Christian in this nation to collectively repent and to say no more, no more! Sitting on the sidelines or looking to someone else to do the work, will no longer stand. It is time to care and to do something while there is still time. Because tomorrow may be too late.
I see color. Just like everyone else in the world. When I meet someone I notice immediately the color of their skin, their hair color and sometimes their eye color. To say that I don’t see color would be ignorant and a failure to acknowledge the person standing in front of me.
What I don’t do is decide that they are a certain way before I get to know them based on their physical appearance. In other words, I make a point not to make assumptions until I’ve had an opportunity to get to know them. If upon further interaction I discover that we just don’t jive, it’s not because of their skin color, it’s simply because we have nothing in common, or their character is not compatible with mine; which in my opinion should be the only measure. I mean we don’t get along with every person in our same ethnic group, do we?
You see the problem with making judgments about someone based on skin is this, color or race is not indicative of the type of person one is. Sure, people share commonalities amongst race and ethnicity. But that may be where it ends. You may find that although you may share many of the same features, there might not be one thing you share in common that would make you want to spend time with that person or that, that person would want to spend time with you, outside of the obvious.
In 2021, that very much seems to be the case for me. Due to the turn my life has taken, many of my deep meaningful relationships are with people that look nothing like me. But our lives intersect in several key areas. Number one, our values are similar. We were raised in traditional homes, where our father’s were the primary breadwinners. We’re college educated and well traveled. But the main reason our lives are so intertwined is because we share the experience of raising vaccine injured children.
Through our life experiences, we have forged strong friendships that transcend color and race. We support each other, have lunch and sometimes travel to visit each other. We may not be climbing the corporate ladder in our careers, or globe trotting with our families, but when it comes to knowing diet, nutritional supplements, treatments and therapies that work best for our our children and spotting corruption from miles away these friends are hands down the best.
Oh and did I mention that we represent every race and ethnicity there is? I refer to every single one of them by their name, never their race. Even when I mention one of them outside of our community (or inside), I can’t remember saying that so and so is white, black or purple. They have names and personalities.
So, while the rest of America goes through the cultural revolution (or dissolution), of division along color lines, we’re going to stick together, support one another and continue to heal our kids. It’s what we do.
You see when I stand before God at judgment, I’m pretty certain he won’t condemn me to hell for not being “black” enough; my condemnation will come from not living a set apart, Christ centered life. In other words, not enough Christ in me. I’m just not woke enough to participate in the dissolution of our republic and I’m pretty certain, I never will be.
And he made from one man, every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place, that they should seek God, in the hope that they might feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us. Acts 17:26&27
Enjoy the “long weekend.” That is what Memorial Day represents to Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, who currently preside over our country as President and Vice President. It is still unbelievable to me that two people who have only been politicians, have zero business acumen or the ability to relate to the average American are now in charge of the management of our great nation.
The history around Memorial Day is a bit mixed, there is history that a group of newly freed slaves in Charleston, SC, actually celebrated the first Memorial Day in 1865. But it was in 1966, that the federal government declared Waterloo, New York as the official birthplace of what we now refer to as Memorial Day. Regardless of the origin of this holiday, the purpose is to remember the sacrifice of many brave men and women, who gave their lives for freedom.
Freedom. In just 14 months, I have watched people that I know and love hand over their precious gift of freedom (endowed to them by God) to the most corrupt, immoral, depraved government we have ever had in this country without question, out of fear. It has been like watching a movie, believing at some point that they would wake up and see the truth. To no avail, they are still asleep.
It seems that no amount of facts or evidence will work for those deeply entrenched in the belief that the government’s role is to keep them safe. It is not the role of the government to keep you safe from illness and certainly not worth sacrificing your freedom and posterity to corrupt politicians. Alas, when they do awaken from their deep sleep, by all estimates it will be too late.
I have tried to walk away from this fight, many times, but it is just not in my nature or character to give up, when I know that so much is at stake. As a Christian, it is my duty to proclaim what is true, because there are people who are listening and want to find the light. So, as is recorded in Galatians 6:9, “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.” I will not give up and I will not turn off my light.
I wrote the post below one year ago on Facebook. It seems bizarre to me that we’re still living as though the pandemic first hit and masks are still worn almost daily. When I wrote this, I never would have thought that one year later, not much would have changed. Praying that soon Americans will become brave enough to live free once again.
When I began this post, I thought to myself, I need to say something profound to make people feel better about our current circumstances, they need to know that they are loved and cared for and what doesn’t make sense now will at some point in the future. But then I realized that making people feel better is a tall order and is certainly not easy. Nor is it a request easily fulfilled. So, instead I’ve decided to share a verse that I take solace in everyday.
Keep in mind, I don’t have a crystal ball or magic wand. I know what separation and isolation feels like too. But I’ve decided (yes, me) not to live in fear or worry. Why? Because my God is not worried, He has my life and my children’s lives in His hands and He knows exactly what we need.
I will not deny the feelings of concern that many of you feel, your worry is valid. But know this, when you have done everything you can do to prepare for the unknown and uncertainty, let your mind embrace that fact. You have done your best! That is all you can every ask of yourself.
Friends, you are loved, you are cared for, you are prayed for everyday! I invite you to choose love, joy and peace as we journey through the unknown together. ❤️
What if you were wrong? What if what the media has told you about the SARs-COV2 biologics is actually wrong? What if the people who told you not to get it, were right all along? How will you reconcile that? What if that one decision has altered your immune function, forever and that any virus or bacteria that comes along can overtake your immune system to the point of serious illness or worse… death?
Will it have been worth it? Is your faith that fragile?
This past year has been baffling to me in so many ways. The level of blind trust and willful obedience has been quite interesting to watch. In many ways heartbreaking. Some of the most outspoken people that I have ever known have crumbled under the weight of being “in this together,” instead of standing on what is actually true. They have forsaken their own sovereignty/ bodily autonomy for safety, because the government told them they had to do so to protect, that unicorn of the most vulnerable. Never asking for proof, but eerily compliant.
Until this plandemic hit the shores of our great nation, socialism/communism had only been something that I read about in textbooks and online. I never would have thought in my lifetime, that the land of the free would fall to such an evil ideology so easily. Many of my friends and family have knowingly or unknowingly accepted that complete adherence to government is the only way out. This thinking is counter to our very foundation as Americans. Our government was established around the idea of freedom from governmental tyranny and liberty for the individual. Yet, here we are. Whatever the government takes, will not be returned.
I have no idea, how this will come to a conclusion. I would have thought, in a so called, “mask-free” state that they would be gone by now. Sadly, that is not so, even here in Georgia. We are in many ways, almost where we were except for those that have gotten the biologics and feel a renewed sense of freedom to not mask up. Yet, they still fail to understand that they were already free, but their own ignorance and cowardice kept them locked behind a piece of cloth terrorized by an invisible enemy. An enemy that is best defeated by a strong and robust immune system.
This is my last post on this topic as there really is nothing left to be said. Fear is a stronger opponent than logic and reason in the minds of many and for my hearts sake, I am walking away. Not because I don’t care, but because I don’t know of anything else that I could add to get people to understand that God alone, is the only one we should ever entrust with our bodies.
I am at peace now. I am going to busy myself with what is next for me and my children and I will leave my light on for the wandering soul that still wants answers. I will be here for you.
When Covid 19 first hit the United States, I played along because I knew that people were scared (not with a mask though) and I didn’t want to seem insensitive. But seeing how this is coming up on a year, I will not hold my tongue any longer. I just can’t, because I am truly concerned for our country. I am sincerely concerned that my children will have no concept of what freedom and liberty actually looks like. I have no secret or nefarious agenda, I just want to live the life that God placed me here to live and that does not include prolonged mask wearing, social distancing and staying in my home for extended periods of time.
So here is the deal, I have a brain, I know what is in the best interest of my own body. I know how medications work, I’ve spent the past 23 years of my life monitoring or managing clinical trials and I’m now in school training to become a Functional Nutrition Counselor, so that being said, until the Government can adequately address the following issues, I’ll take its health recommendations with a grain of salt.
-Why is the US ranked 46th in longevity? -Why is medical error the third leading cause of death in the US? Killing over 250,000 a year? -Why is child mortality in the US worse among the 20 wealthiest countries? -Why is the US ranked 68th in first day newborn deaths? -Why does America pop more pills than any other country? -Why have autoimmune disorders and neurological disorders skyrocketed in the last 30 years?
Last point, governments were instituted by men to protect the rights endowed to us by our Creator. If at anytime the government operates outside of those parameters, we are morally obligated not to comply. By the way, if you’ve never studied the atrocities of WWII, you might want to go and do a little research. The propaganda being used on the American people is eerily similar.
The kitchen, is the heart of the home. It’s typically the gathering space that we associate with family, fellowship and food. It’s where decisions are made, homework is done, it’s where amazing meals are planned and cooked. It can also be the place of not so great, sometimes very messy meals that are ultimately tossed in the trash and replaced with takeout. Whatever it is to you, I suspect that at the center, is love.
Pretty much from the moment that I knew that I was going to have children, it became my priority to improve my cooking skills. It was the idea of life growing inside my body that made me want to challenge myself to create the most wholesome meals, I could imagine. In my mind, I channeled Rachael Ray and Bobby Flay when I made anything, salad, soup, salmon, whatever it was, it had to be just right. When my daughter started daycare at the age of one, her teacher would comment often on how she had the best meals in her class because they were homemade, not prepackaged or ready to eat. Those compliments meant the world to me, because although I worked full time, I still do by the way, my daughter had real food everyday. I continued that tradition when my son was born, because to me food nourishes and it restores.
In this season of coronavirus, where the dictates have been isolation and separation, I have often wondered if more time at home has given families the opportunity to return to the tradition of family meals together or to create new traditions where the kitchen has become the soul of the home once more. Perhaps, with the children learning to cook, spending time at the table discussing all the things. Maybe doing school and work side by side. Or maybe it has become the place to sit and talk and reconnect. It is my prayer that more connecting or reconnecting is happening in the room that is known for gathering.
Open up your homes. Invite your extended family, friends and neighbors over to eat, have a cup of coffee, laugh and fellowship. Our kitchens can and should be once again, the heart and soul of our homes and the place to remember that we are connected and that is a beautiful thing!
The past week has been quite the whirlwind in politics and culture. The vast majority of Americans believe that somehow since every media outlet has proclaimed that Joe Biden is President-Elect, that it’s over, the Trumps are leaving the White House in January.
Unfortunately, for all of Biden/Harris supporters cheering with glee, that is a bit premature. First, the media cannot declare a Presidential winner. Two, none of the States have certified the votes(required), the Electoral College doesn’t vote until December 14, which means the votes/election will not be certified until January 6, 2021. But who cares, those are pesky details. May I direct you to the following sites to educate yourself about our Republic.
I guess what disturbs me the most is how easily beguiled most Americans have become. No one questions the lockdowns or the insistence of wearing masks. Or the potential for mandatory masking promised by the Biden/Harris administration. No one questions, why churches are closed, small businesses are not permitted to operate or that even more draconian mandates are being passed. They just nod and continue on as mindless drones.
And for those of us who refuse to go along with the charade, we get labeled as subversive or defiant. I never knew until this year that standing up for freedom and liberty would be considered a radical act in this Constitutional Republic, we refer to as the United States of America.
We have watched elites in Washington D.C, the technocrats in Silicon Valley and their co-conspirators in mainstream media work feverishly in concert with our enemies abroad to subvert our Republic. They even influence the behavior of our servant government on the state and local level. Unquestioning everyday Americans have fallen in line. When you think about it, it’s the perfect plot. Use public education to indoctrinate, promise free stuff, divide the population along every ism, you can conjure and viola here we are on the precipice of Communism.
Once you arrive on the doorsteps of Communism, freedom and liberty are lost forever without enormous bloodshed.
While, I may not have any control over decisions made by our servant government, I can control how I respond to tyranny. I will resist with every fiber in my body. I don’t relish the idea of fighting against my friends and family over the ideal of liberty, but it is a sacrifice I am willing to make if it would guarantee that my children never spend a day enslaved by a government that is rooted in the depths of hell.
Freedom does not come without sacrifice, so the question, is are you willing to suffer for it to restore our Republic? If not, please get out of the way of those who are.
