I must confess we do not get to caught up in the hustle and bustle of Christmas and all the spending and hoopla. We enjoy the Christmas lights and decorations but to put them up and take them down when we have limited free time as it is we once again have left almost all the decorations in the closet except for our little Charlie Brown Christmas Tree. I have not even gotten to Christmas Cards hopefully by next week they will be out. This afternoon was spent working on websites and getting the laundry and house cleaning done.
We had some friends J and L and a year ago they came to our state to visit and while they were here we caught up with them and spent some time with them. During that time the conversation got really weird. They started talking about nudity and their sex life while we were at a restaurant. We were surprised at what they were saying because we just did not feel it was appropriate to be discussing out side of their own marriage. They ended up coming to our house the next day we did not expect to see them again when we left them the day before but they called and showed up wanting to use our internet. While they were there L started bragging about inappropriate pictures that J had taken of her and how they were excited about them. We were appalled at them for their conversation. Call me old school but I do not get people wanting to share the details of their sex life with other people it is totally inappropriate and unacceptable and uncomfortable. They were totally like out of control which really caused us concern we had to wonder what had changed in their lives that made them think they needed to talk that way and then trash people we all knew and were friends with. It was an amazing visit from people we are no longer friends with. We had to cut off the friendship because of their lifestyle change. I was talking to someone the other day and was asked about them and if we heard from them any more and I said no because of their lifestyle change and that person looked at me and said that they brought up sex didn’t they and I said how did you know and she said that when they started inappropriate sex talk and trash talking about people they knew with them they cut the relationship off also. One has to wonder what has happened in their life to cause such a dramatic change.
This morning we woke to the right amount of snow with just a dusting. The trees outside were and still are dusted in snow and there are a few flakes still floating around. Being a day off for me I really wanted to go to the mountains but had to do work to do for a client so I tried to think of somewhere I could go get some type of pictures. Since it was gray and creepy out this morning with the trees snow dusted it was a good day to go to the graveyard. I have wanted to go drive around the Old Gray Cemetery which is of part of the Civil War Heritage Trail here in Knoxville. So I promised mom a trip to Sam’s Club and then said oh by the way we are going to the graveyard on the way. LOL. Got to keep the momma on her toes.
I had to laugh I was thinking how neat the head stones had weathered and how some had moss on them and mom pops out of the blue that she would come in and power wash them all. I was thinking character and she was thinking cleanliness.
Anyways I did not get the creepy affect for pictures I wanted. But as I drove around I thought about the Civil War that had brother against brother. Now there they laid some with amazing grave markers and some with simple common markers. And the ones with the elaborate head stones their bodies were just as dead and lifeless as the common markers. Did it serve them all these years later to have the biggest and best head stone? In the end what really mattered? Was it the war they fought? Was it the life they lived? In the end in reality the only thing that mattered was one of two choices that they could have made before they died.
I did not get the creepy affect I went looking for but I did get a creepy feeling wondering how many bodies buried there had souls that went to heaven or hell. There is no in between there is only one or the other and being dead it is way too late to decide. Fancy grave markers will eventually get covered in moss and crumble one day but dang eternity that is forever folks. And there is an eternity just where do you want to spend it?
Love how Judge Jeanine calls it like it is
We have school systems gone a muck. A president who does not tell the truth and ignores the US Constitution. We have black youth playing a game of knock out and the media refuses to call it racial when it is but if white youth were doing it they would be all over it.
America needs prayer right now. We stand in the balance of good and evil the question is which way will America turn?
Obamacare does not affect a lot of us at the moment as much as is affecting a lot of people and the lack of insurance is unacceptable. I really think and I know a lot of people I know do that we could have gone about this a lot better. I have taken time to read the law and I have to shake my head and say what the heck was congress thinking at the time. There was too much left for the Secretary of HHS to decide on things that should have be decided on in congress not by a department. I have to blame congress for this and I really think we need to fire some people and sure as heck not vote anyone back in.
What a mess ObamaCare!! What an embarrassment to our nation. What the heck are we going to do about it people? Time to stand up and say cut the crap we are not stupid and we will no longer tolerate stupid in our government. Time to not let Congress/Senate pass any more bills with open ends and ones we can not clearly understand.
I try to get a perspective from several media sites every day to try to sort thru and figure out what really is happening in the world. The media is way too biased and it is annoying as heck. We can not trust the media at all to give us the truth about anything.
America has to stop listening to the media and start thinking for themselves. People big business and the media are doing everything to control how we think what we buy and what we should be doing. We need to step back and say enough is enough.
What a mess!!!! The one issue after another in Washington. Fast and Furious and Bengazi and the list goes on and now the ObamaCare Crap. Really this is just too much for one president to have go wrong this needs to be addressed people something is a muck in DC and we need to hold people accountable.
