I do not like Obama.
So sue me.
I do not support many things that Obama does...such as the senseless murder (yes....judgmental word) of innocent babies.
So sue me.
Oh...forgot my disclaimer....some of you may not want to read this. It might change (or confirm) the way you feel about me.
I get frustrated when I feel I should sugar-coat and gloss over topics in my blog.
So sue me.
I'm REALLY angry with myself because, for a nanosecond, I considered a different blog to talk about "touchy" subjects....because I didn't want to sound judgmental. (I'm going to insert a question here......if it is my opinion and you classify it as judgmental, are you being judgmental to me? Or does it just go one way....cause I feel pretty beat up.)
Anyway, I'm angry with myself because considering a second blog totally goes against who I am...TOTALLY! But I digress.
I am a Christian.
SO SUE ME!!!!
I don't fall under certain religious/doctrinal/denominational holdings unless they go by the Bible and only the Bible. (Do you see how good I'm doing at controlling my "frustration?" Hardly any capital letters....and most of those are for names, titles and first letters in sentences. GO ME!.....Oh.....and cheers for myself :) ) But I digress again.
I pray for many people.....some Christian, some not, some not sure (by either myself or the topic of said prayers), friends, non-friends, Obama (even though I don't like him), my hubby, my children, other family, my property, my vehicles, my kids' teachers, my pastors, myself.....many, many, many people. And I don't do it to get anything in return. Yes....I selfishly pray for these many souls to be saved. I do it because I care about these folk and would like to see them in Heaven.
Does this bother anyone?
SO SUE ME!
OK, so I really don't mean to be insulting to anyone. I can only imagine the comments that I will get......and won't get.
I try to be a friend. It's acceptable to say, "I don't like so-n-so, therefore, I have nothing to do with them." However, when I care enough to share something that I consider wonderful, moving, life-changing, helpful...whatever, I'm called judgmental, fake, harsh....(and I'm not just talking religion, but other things.)
I'm just tired. So tired.
I can already imagine the thoughts of a few of you. And to those I say this....these are not "fighting words." I'm not trying to tick you off. I'm not trying to start a debate. I'm merely trying to stop worrying about fitting into a "popular" mold. My ideas obviously aren't the same as yours....and that's OK. (Heh...I'm telling myself that more than anyone else.)
So....for the 4 to 5 of you who will continue to read, please pray for me. I'm having a hard time right now. Specifically, please pray that I continue, on this blog, saying what needs to be said...determined NOT by who might or might not get upset, but by my convictions.
God bless you ALL.
