Time Moves On & The News Is Dreary…

Wow, it has been so long since I have updated this blog that it took me about 30 minutes to remember the user name and password!  I have not been here since June, that is about 3 months.

But the news has certainly not slowed down any. There is still death, destruction, crime, lies, and brutality.  I was watching the news with my daughter the other night and she shook her head and said, “How can you watch this all the time, it is so depressing.”.  She is absolutely correct the news is very depressing, but we do not live in a bubble and we can not be ignorant to what goes on around us.

Ignorance is NOT bliss in today’s society. WE NEED TO STAY INFORMED!

Some recent News stories:

Mark Zuckerberg CEO of Facebook will donate $100 Million to Newark New Jersey public schools. Folks are complaining and wondering about his motives. Really?? Who cares! The schools are getting much needed money!

Similac  powdered baby formula removed from store shelves because of tainted formula. Hmmm, so that’s why God made Breasts…

Prominent Atlanta Pastor, Bishop Eddie Long accused of coercion and sexual misconduct by 3 young men. Well, it is what it is, keep praying and let God handle the rest.

Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told the UN General Assembly that the U.S. Government orchestrated the 9/11 attacks.  Hmmm, I wouldn’t want to be this dude on a dark NYC street…

11 Year old babysitter kills 2-year-old girl. Lots of questions here, starting with, Why the hell is an 11-year-old babysitting a 2-year-old???

Reggie Garret, a Texas high school quarterback collapses and dies after throwing touchdown pass.  Many prayers go out to the family of this young man. Life is short and NO ONE is promised tomorrow.

Denver Broncos wide receiver, Kenny McKinley was found dead in his Colorado home. The investigation is on-going but the reports are saying that a self-inflicted gunshot wound killed him. What could be so bad with your life that at the ripe old age of 23 you want to kill yourself … besides being bored to death in Colorado?

Well, there you have it the news you have been missing!

The one thing I HATE to hear is, “The devil made me do it”.  WOW! OK, Let me be very clear about this folks, THE DEVIL CANNOT MAKE YOU DO A DARN THING!! Any and everything you do is because YOU CHOSE TO DO IT! Even if someone holds a gun to your head YOU make the choice to get shot or not. EVERYTHING WE DO IS A CHOICE!

Another thing… BEFORE you start accusing, judging, agreeing or disagreeing, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, get ALL of the FACTS!

God sits high and looks low, Let GOD judge, NOT YOU!

You don’t have to be Ms Cleo to see troubling times ahead…

Peace & Love

    Hey REgina! I love your take on things! By the way, I read your post about “Snakes on a Plane” before this one, so I didn’t know about the “devil made me do it” opinion! LOL! Please forgive! LOL!

    You are so right about the devil not being able to make us do anything. He may try and wear us down til we do what He wants, but You and I know a God that is bigger, stronger, smarter and willing and able to give us the strength we need to get through anything! Right?!

    God Bless!
