Luck Or Blessing

Sometimes I believe Luck can be a Blessing, but a Blessing is not always Luck.

Here’s how my day went:

While emptying the trash, I accidentally threw out my bag for the Homeless. I couldn’t get it because the Trashman had just left and I wasn’t going to climb in the dumpster. Just hoping that can of Cookies will survive and someone will find it who really needs it.

Cin and I went gambling since we had decided not to go on New Years Eve (that decision may be reversed, though) and I won over $100. We all know gambling is Luck but, the extra money can be a Blessing.

Then, I went to Port-Of-Subs after doing some minor grocery shopping. I had to go before the month is out because I knew I had a $5.00 credit for my Birthday. I was starving having not eaten since Breakfast so I got a Large which came out to $10.00. (Yes, one sandwich gives me two meals.). Imagine my surprise when I was informed I actually had a $10.00 credit on my account, so the sandwich was free! A Blessing!

On the way back to the car, I found a dime in the street. Luck. Hey, every bit, helps.

Came home and developed a killer Migraine so took my Imatrex and went down for a bit. The days ending might not be Luck or a Blessing, although I suppose it’s a Blessing to be able to feel pain and to have meds to help manage it. I accepted that ending after the good day, I had.

My Honest Opinion

I might lose some readers by posting this but I am tired of having to accept and keep my feelings under wraps. If we can’t agree to disagree on certain topics, I understand if you choose to Unfollow. However, if you have been a long time WordPress Friend, please text me a polite Good Bye.

That being said:

I am a Christian and I believe what I have been taught about the Creation of Man and Woman! I do not believe in The Big Bang or cells just suddenly turned into skin, bones and able to communicate in language.

Believing in Creation also means I believe a person is What they are meant to be when you are born. You have a Penis, it’s a Boy! You have a Vagina, It’s a Girl! I am sure there are a few deformities but I think them few and far between.

This LGBTQ..RVYZ stuff (I added that) is ridiculous. You are a Woman who likes another Woman. Good for you. A Man who likes the same? Your Choice. Why should I have to celebrate every time one of you announces it? In my beliefs, it’s against God. No, God doesn’t Hate you and neither do I. I actually don’t care. But, I care enough Not to condone your actions. God is your Judge, Not Me!

Then, we have these parents who are letting their children decide what gender they want to be. This is ridiculous! When I grew up, I was taught a Woman can be whatever she wants.. Doctor, Teacher,Truck Driver..but Not A Man! Sure, I could dress like a Man and use a male name, but I am still a Woman!

I don’t believe God made mistakes and I don’t believe we have the right to change what we were born as just because we want to.

It is no longer funny to dress as the opposite gender for Halloween, and using Pronouns is ridiculous. I refuse to call someone “They”. That goes beyond every English lesson I was ever taught!

So, I guess in conclusion, I just had to air my frustrations with society today. I am sure some nasty comments will arise, but these are my views and not for debate. After all, it’s my blog. I am sorry if I have offended anyone.

I just sincerely hope this world comes back to God before he comes back to us!

Hating Waiting

There are some things you don’t mind waiting for:

A Storm

An Earthquake

Getting Sick

Work Meetings

A Test At School

Then there are things you wish would hurry up:

Santa Clause To Arrive.

Your Relatives Or Friends To Visit ( if you really like them).

A Trip To Get Started.

Or, in my case:

A Prescription To Be Authorized and News Of A Friend Who Is Having Or Had Surgery.

I don’t know why my doctor is flaking on my prescription. I can’t see a Neurologist until I get it filled because I want a new Primary. Not because of this situation, but because I am a lot further away from her office and I don’t have a car. If I get someone closer, I can use the medical transportation on my plan. My doctor has really become witchy lately though, and I just don’t get it.

As far as the second issue, Cin is in surgery. for a Pacemaker. It was scheduled for 3:00 and it’s 6:00 now. Hopefully, she is almost or completely finished and waking up. I am concerned because she has some major issues with her Weight, Blood Pressure, Diabetes, Heart… Plus, I don’t think she is a Christian. We have talked about it and she leans more Atheist or Agnostic. Being a Christian, this concerns me.

I would like to say that all will be well since she is a fighter, but, that has nothing to do with anything. There is no real fight, if it’s your time.

In my heart and gut, I really think all will be well, but in the back of my mind.. for how long? Cin is not good at following doctors directions especially when it comes to diet and exercise.

I will probably do a quick update when I hear something.

Midnight Wednesday & Possibilities

I believe this is technically my Tuesday Post since I was exhausted last night. I couldn’t keep my eyes open after 8.

I talked to the Manager, yesterday (let’s call her Mgr… Yeah, I know. My creativity is over the top!) and she told me TWO rentals are coming up, soon. So, I will get a choice! She also reminded me that they are small and old… BUT….I DON’T CARE! It would be affordable and I can get my babies out of the Pet Hotel and have them with me.

Small, is here!

Plus, it would be My Own!

Remember I told you about being scratched by Miss Kitty? My Suzy spent almost two days under Cin’s bed after that until I got her out. Now, she is back with me.

We believe she does eat and go potty, at night, but even she is tired of feeling unwelcome. Not saying we are Unwelcome. But, the crazy rules and ways Cin lives, is getting old.

I will probably do another Post later today, as it is Tara’s Birthday. I might just share a bit about how I came to be blessed with her. She is 10 Years Old, today!

Grateful? I am so grateful for the future possiblity! I have been praying, trusting, and believing. I am so grateful God does what he promises and listens to our prayers! He knows my future and I continue with continued prayers and belief in him while waiting for it to come true!

Keep praying this happens really soon, please!

Oh Yeah, Life Goes On

“Long after the thrill of livin is gone”. But, it’s not the thrill of Livin that’s gone; it’s the thrill of living here. Not that I was thrilled about it in the first place.

Miss Kitty attacked me the other night. She may have been going after Suzy but I had just fallen asleep and she scratched my inner thigh causing blood to go everywhere.

She also chased Suzy clear into the other end of the sofa and I had to open it for her to get out. Since then, Suzy has been under Cin’s bed and doesn’t want to come out.

I am tired of sleeping on this table bed and am not happy with some of the rigid rules Cin has.

I am seriously considering an apartment even if it does have a 12 month Lease, if nothing opens here, soon.

Had a Migraine this morning. But got through the weekend without one. I would say “Oh well, it’s only the first of the week” but it’s also a Monday. Of course, I am sure the Time Change messed me up, too. I hate it and wish we all had the same time.

Sorry this Post was whiny. Actually, No, I am not. I guess I can be Sorry, I didn’t warn you, though.

I am grateful, I was/am able to afford Storage and to put my other two Fur-Children in a Pet Hotel.

I hold on to my belief that something will open up, soon.

Saturday Sharing

Hello Class,

It’s been a while since we’ve had class so welcome to anyone new! This is the part of my Blog where we share what we’ve learned during the week. I share here, and you share in the comments. I believe everyone learns something during the week and it can be any subject, whatsoever. All is fair game.

On that note, today was a reminder from the Apostle Peter that we are Blessed to believe although we have not seen and that our trials are temporary since we are human..if we have God in our lives.. and continue to focus on our long-term reward of eternal life.

This week, I learned that Lemon Juice kills Cockroaches. Well, that’s what the internet showed. Truthfully, I don’t think I can get close enough to one to squeeze the juice from a Lemon on it.

Anyway, I am tired tonight and not looking forward to waking up tomorrow as it will probably be even earlier, with Daylight Savings Time starting or ending again.

I am very grateful my little cat was able to stay here with me.

She gives me cuddles at night and keeps me from being depressed over not having my other two, at my side.

Getting Saved, Etc..

My friend over at PurpleSlobInRecovery has been sharing a lot about her Christian Walk, and has requested I share my Testimony.

I was raised as a Catholic and was Baptized as a baby, but, that is not the same as a accepting Christ as my personal Savior! I have always loved to read and my mother kept giving me books. The books were about children in my age group…I was 13 at the time… and I soon discovered they all had the same ending. “Then, I discovered Christ as my Savior, blah.. blah.. blah.” It got to where I would read the last page first, due to the predictability. So, one day, I threw the book across the room and said, “Okay, God, Change Me!”. Mind you, I was 13! The fireworks or lightening I expected didn’t happen, so I was like “Okay, Whatever”. But, the next morning, it was like my world changed! I was seeing clearer and even smelling the flowers! More aware and grateful for the things God put around me.

PurpleSlob is adding something she is grateful for, in her daily Posts until Thanksgiving, so I have decided to try to do the same. I will try to add one thing at the end.

In other news- I was really sick last night and this morning, but am doing better. I hate being sick at other people’s places, but technically, I don’t have my own place, so…

In Good News- Cin saw a bunch of furniture by the Dumpster, so we are really hoping/praying the neighbors are moving soon so I can get my own place. Even small, it can’t be much smaller than the space I have here, plus, I can get my babies, back.

*While I know I complain a bit, I am grateful to Cindy for taking me in. I am sure it was hard to open her house to another person and their cat. That is a sign of a true friend, and I am thankful that God put her in my life.

‘Bitter Is The New Black’ by Jen Lancaster..A Book Review

Okay, This is my opinion on this book. If you are the actual Author or know her, I am in no way trying to offend. I am only a small fish in a large pond with her own views, after reading.

That being said;

“Bitter Is The New Black” is supposed to be a Memoir. Supposedly, it is fact and fiction mixed regarding the Author and how she began her writing career.

However,

If you have ever read any of the books in the , Confessions Of A Shopaholic’ by Sophia Kinsella, you will know it is about a girl with a shopping problem who receives letters from creditors and her creative ways of dealing with them. The situations she gets in are quite amusing.

‘Bitter Is The New Black’ and Jen’s situations are not quite as amusing as they are pretty much copied from the Confessions series with the exception of using email instead of actual letter writing. The topics and situations are a tad different, but the writing style is almost exact, taking the humor away and making one wonder

Does Jen know Sophia Kinsella and did she get permission to write this way?

I may not have written a book series (but have written a book on a self-publishing site) but, I know what plagiarism is and also a fine line, when I read it.

I prefer books written written by oneself in their own style

Prompt & Prayers

Every week there is a Prompt on Wednesday so ConfusingMiddle.com. Why don’t you check it out? It’s a cool site. I’ll wait.

Humming, Tapping, Yawning…

Oh, You’re Back! Good, So you now know this week’s Prompt is ‘Virus’ due to Virus Appreciation Week. All, I can say is when I was growing up, if you got sick and the doctors couldn’t pinpoint it, you had a “Virus” and you stayed home from school sick and couldn’t play… not like you felt like playing, anyway.

Today, I bought a bedframe from Amazon (even if it will have to go in storage. Searching for even a cheap apartment, but it sucks when they say two cats max or add a $20 per cat deposit. I am Not regretting my decision not losing Faith. However, I am requesting continued Prayers that something comes open, soon

Fact Or Fiction

Today was busy.

I filled out an Application for Cin’s Trailer Park in case anything becomes available, I opened a PO Box to change my mail, I went to the 99 Cents store and got TP and a Hanging Skeleton, and Cin and I also had Pizza Hut before going to the casino. I had approximately $23. to gamble and made enough to pay some back to Cin as well as continue playing, which was a plus! The Buyer texted and wants to do the paperwork tomorrow to transfer the Title.

Now, for the Post Title -We arrived to my house to my neighbor Lu rushing over to warn us of the following:

Biden is shutting down the government so people’s Disability, Paychecks, etc will probably be delayed.

Biden is going to tax all bank accounts with $600. or more.

Jerusalem is starting one world religion and if you don’t have the COVID Vaccine, you are not a part of it. They are even building a church or something for this.

The COVID Vaccine is preparing us for a Microchip in our hand or forehead.

If you got the COVID Vaccine and still get really sick, especially from the new variant, you can be saved with plasma from someone Unvaccinated because they have natural immunity.

Pelosi passed a law that babies can be killed after birth if the mother doesn’t want it.

Afghan Refugees are being allowed in all different places including Las Vegas and are being caught with young children saying they are their wives.

This was a lot to take in and I don’t know what is true or false. Please share which of these you believe to be true and your sources.
