Many of you have heard me poke fun at Gwen and Katie about being "bloggers." And HERE I AM blogging right alongside them. I am not even really sure WHY I have continued to post with the exception that I feel very strongly that Mike and I are called to speak on behalf of the fatherless. Now, that I have a little angel with HIV, I feel that we are to be VERY intentional on educating and encouraging people to love and care for people that have been infected with this treatable disease.
Honestly, tonight I think I will just vent a little bit....
I have passed the sponsorship matching for Amazima Ministries to a dear friend so that I can help Gwen with the PR department of Katie's ministry. The emails and comments for Katie just flood in daily. Because her hands are full and internet is so undependable at Katie's house we answer all of her emails and when we talk to her tell her about the issues where we need her help. It has worked out great because she can focus on her children, medical treatment, schooling and all of the other "to do's" that she has daily. MOST of her emails are questions. MOST of her comments (on her blog) are encouragements. Some are NOT. For the life of me, I cannot figure out WHY ON EARTH people feel like they need to criticize some of the decisions that she makes. Or better yet, tell her how she SHOULD do this, or SHOULDN'T say that.....REALLY?!?! Can any of us over here in "the land of comfort" say ANYTHING to her about the decisions that she might make that we do not agree with? If you do not agree with what she is doing or saying, save yourself some time and quit reading her blog.
I have been watching Fox News and the uproar that surrounds Tim Tebow in his BOLD stance against abortion. Planned Parenthood has now made a commercial with NFL players on it and Gold Medalists parents saying how "proud" they are to be of such sound mind to be able to make their own decisions..blah, blah, blah.....If you do not want to hear what Tim Tebow has to say about His mom "choosing life" when she was carrying him...then turn your TV off when the commercial comes on. I am so proud of him for taking a BOLD stance publicly.
Which leads me to some of the comments that I receive on my blog. The anonymous ones are always my favorites. (because there is no way to respond to them) But just to clear a few things up.....For "Mr. I wrote a book to prove that there is no heaven"...obviously, you do not read the same bible that I do OR serve the same Savior or you would KNOW without doubt that He is SITTING ON HIS THRONE right this very moment. For the man who wants to "dialogue" about the Christmas decor that I have that has black skin...."No, I do not want to dialogue, because on a blog there is NO discussion, it is just my thoughts and yours (IF I decide to post them). For the lady that criticized me for buying Josie a car for her birthday and said that by the looks of my pics that I gave A LOT of gifts for Christmas.....I totally get your point about Americans living extravagantly. But, before you write me several paragraphs about how I should steward my money....you might want to research my life a little deeper. As far as all of the ideas that you gave me on putting my "thoughts" to actions go to 147millionorphans.com and see what my business does. To be honest, I am doing well just to love my family in the capacity that Christ desires (since they are truly the only thing that we can take with us to heaven) in between all of Josie's doctors visits. If you do not agree with my post just click the little red X at the top corner of your computer.
For those of you that leave comments for people trying to get them to ponder what they have written....don't bother, just quit reading the blog if it ruffles your feathers that much.
At the end of each day my heart is so full with joy that only can be given through Christ. I strive daily to be more and more like Jesus. But Jesus also went stomping into the temple and turned tables over when He saw the people turning the temple into a marketplace. He was angry. I think probably that He had just reached his point of having grace with people......totally understandable.
- I am a lover of Jesus. I have the most fabulous husband that anyone woman could ask for. The Lord has blessed us with 7 beautiful children. I started this blog so that friends and family could follow our trip to Uganda to visit Katie Davis. I have decided to keep blogging to help bring orphan awareness to the world around me.
