The Long Weekend

American Memorial Day

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.

We must never forget.

The Other Side of the Story

This afternoon was a first. The first time, my son has experienced a seizure while doing his most favorite thing to do on the playground and that is to swing. Sure, he has had a seizure while we were out hiking. But today was different my son fell off the swing on the playground on his face and had a seizure. That is the side of the story that you don’t see.

Sure, I make it look like everything is under control. I show up and I smile on social media, because I have too, but on days like this one, I truly want to scream. I want to scream because of all that my son has had to endure and what he continues to endure because of my ignorance, when it came to vaccines. It’s true, seizures are a side effect of vaccines and a whole host of other issues, such as cancer in children.

But I digress. Our country is changing and not for the better. Every value that you may currently hold dear is slipping away because everyone has decided that compliance is safe and the government would never harm it’s people. You are wrong! The government would and is harming it’s people for the so called “greater good.” And I refuse to allow myself or my children to be subjected to such calculated unrelenting evil.

So, while my day to day experiences may be of no concern to you, please know that what I experience may soon become the norm, not only in children, but in adults, who could have said no, but chose not to out of fear instead of knowledge.

You have been warned and prayed for, but if you continue down this path, please do not look to me for answers. I will be too busy doing what I always do and that is protecting and providing for my children with every fiber of my being. I just pray that there is still time for you.

Always,

Anxiety and Fear

Why did I let anxiety and fear, keep me from my purpose?

When I hit enroll with Plexus two and half years ago, I made the choice because I wanted to feel better and to lose the weight that I had gained. I never dreamt of doing this as a business because I was more concerned about what others would think instead of what this business had to offer me and my children. An opportunity to make a kingdom impact.
Even though I was surrounded by great examples of success on my team, I didn’t believe that I was worthy of the same, so I shied away from sharing or leading with the business opportunity and focused on the products, because talking science was my comfort zone. I didn’t have to stretch too much or feel the sting of rejection.

I remember when my friend and mentor told me, to share more of me on my timeline, because as she said, “people want to see you!” Again, I hid behind anxiety and fear because I couldn’t imagine that anyone would want to see me or listen to a word that I had to say.

Guess what? Turns out that I was wrong! People actually do want to see me, in my authentic self. People actually do want to hear what I have to say. Yes, network marketing is about selling products or a service, but at its very core, it’s about serving others. This industry challenges you to identify your true self, to live boldly and with purpose and with a heart to serve. It has helped me to remove the barriers and excuses for not doing what I’ve always been passionate about. It has helped me overcome the scarcity mindset of “anxiety and fear” because there is no room for those two on the road to abundant living.

Today, I am no longer afraid to accept all of the gifts that God has prepared for me. What about you? What roadblocks are holding you back?

Is Your Faith That Fragile?

Bistro in Seal Beach, California

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.

With an intentional heart,

AngelaChristine

I Don’t Have to Live in Fear

I could say, that the fear is completely gone. But, if I did, I’d be lying. There was a period of time when the seizures weren’t here. It was the space between my dad’s wedding and the move to Georgia, but then they returned or perhaps they never left….

I often think, that seizures are like a wound that just refuses to close. It’s like it closes with medication and then something happens or maybe it doesn’t and the wound begins to weep again. The pus flows out into our lives just as we are beginning to accept that we’re in a good space until we’re not and once again, I recognize that it’s not under my control. I am not control.

In his ten short years of life, he has probably seen the inside of an ambulance more times than I have in my entire fifty years. My heart breaks, each time we have had to take that ride. Each time, it’s the same questions, it’s the same answer, “his doctor needs to increase his medication and that will stop the breakthrough seizures,” well until it doesn’t. Why continue to throw medication until it sticks without asking why? Why are they happening what is the root cause for the seizures? The answer, “sometimes, we just don’t know.” But we can run some tests? Perhaps that will give us a clue. “Sure, I say, let’s run more tests, perhaps there is something we missed in the nine thousand other tests.”

When the tests come back normal, the answer is once again “we just don’t know, but we have still more medication options should we need to go that route.” How can we be so dependent on a system with so few answers about keeping us healthy? Perhaps, keeping us healthy isn’t the objective at all and so they run tests and remain vague just to give us enough hope to keep going back for more medication and the “it’s just inevitable.”

This morning, we worshipped online, because the seizures came and my son was of course in no condition to get up and going. It’s in those moments that I realize how not normal my life really is. You see, just when we think that seizures are in our rear view mirror and we begin to feel as though we can live normally, they come and we adapt again. Again.

Perhaps the average person, would give up and curse God. There have been times that I have contemplated those two things, but then somehow God reminds me of all of the times, He has kept his promises and brought the people and resources into my life when I couldn’t see how whatever it was would work out. Each and every time! By His divine authority it has come together for our good. I weep with gratitude.

As Christians, it often pains us to see the suffering around us and to not get caught up in what the world may say about God and His existence because of all of the devastation. But then I am reminded that Jesus bore it ALL. Not some of it, all of it. Every tear, every sin, every pain, every seizure, Jesus bore all of it.

No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. I Corinthians 10:13

I am not without help, I am loved, my Ethan is loved and He is providing for us, so I will continue to trust in Him. And I hope that you can too.

Agape!

10 Things I’ve Learned About People During this Pandemic

1. Most people have no clue what the word, liberty means as it relates to their health and well being. I mean, how easily people have accepted mask mandates as if they are somehow law( which they are not, which means you don’t have to comply). I am further amazed that intelligent people believe that wearing a mask will protect the most vulnerable among us.

2. People say that they trust the science, but when presented with actual science they scoff at it and really aren’t interested at all. They believe the lies peddled by mainstream media. Here is a link to actual science. https://www.meehanmd.com/blog/2020-06-12-healthy-people-should-not-wear-face-masks/ and https://www.bmj.com/content/369/. bmj.m1422

3. People wholeheartedly believe that a vaccine is the only way that our lives can return to normal. They literally never question, how it’s possible to create a coronavirus vaccine in less than a year when it takes on average seven years to produce one. Where is the safety data?

4. People have lost their humanity and compassion. It is near next to impossible to hold a conversation with anyone when you’re in a store or out and about. Just about all eye contact is gone.

5. Another revelation has been finding out that people who at one time, I considered to be very good acquaintances, if not friends have become quite comfortable attacking me over this one issue.

6. Then there is the belief that asymptomatic carriers could be spreading coronavirus and not even know it. Meanwhile, the World Health Organization is on record stating that it is extremely rare for an “asymptomatic carrier” to spread the virus. https://youtu.be/jgwj4uTEYRE

7. No one seems to care or wonder when these mandates and lock downs are going to end, so that churches and small businesses can reopen. Meanwhile they seem to be comfortable with protesting, riots and looting across our country. https://www.conservativereview.com/news/horowitz-lockdowns-blm-anarchy-harming-blacks-anything/

8. The CDC, just recently revised their numbers indicating that out of the 180,000+ coronavirus related deaths only 6% actually died from coronavirus. I didn’t even mention the inaccuracy in testing. https://www.newsmax.com/t/newsmax/article/984567?section=us&keywords=coronavirus-covid-twitter&year=2020&month=08&date=30&id=984567&oref=duckduckgo.com

Even with that revelation, most people are still content to wear their bright and colorful masks.

9. The media has been mostly silent on the unintended consequences of this plandemic. Suicides are up, depression and anxiety are up and not to mention all of the Americans who have lost their jobs and the small businesses that have shut down to never open again. This has been a total disaster in just about every sector of our economy and our lives as a nation.

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/study-coronavirus-restrictions-killing-10-000-children-per-month-and-wasting-and-stunting-millions-more?fbclid=IwAR1MiLVUuBuvZZv-8UMEZqtaDZ_wf5dnN6Haqd_N_x8PJjaIFw-ObiBfN58

10. Fear is a powerful spirit. Otherwise, rational and level headed people have collapsed to their most base behavior over this virus. Logic and reason no longer apply, because of this pervasive belief that if we don’t adhere to every guidance or mandate thrown out by the government we will soon die.

I guess the irony in all of this is, that there are true epidemics happening in this country that have gone virtually overlooked through all of this; such as cancer, heart disease, obesity, diabetes and developmental disorders among children. But since the media has decided to pour all of their energy into creating panic over this virus that has a recovery rate of 99.96% then nothing else matters.

It is important understand that although not pleasant, most of us will and do get sick from time to time and at some point all of us will eventually die. What matters is how we live our lives in between.
