What a week!
On the 27th we went to my Godson's graduation party. I was surprised at how he greeted each of us so graciously! (Maybe he is growing up?)
I forgot his card! My nephew forgot his card! My sister forgot his portrait! Oh well, no worries.
The day was nice. There was a ton of food!
My other nephew and his wife (who he is not living with) and the boys came to the party.
There is a lot of drama in this story. Needless to say, they need your prayers. The wife has the boys.
I do not like her and I don't think she is a good mother. My heart goes out to the boys, especially my other Godson who is the middle child. He is very unhappy and acts up probably because of it.
It is a family situation that really needs your PRAYERS!
Then there was the Supreme Court decision this last week. I don't know what side you are on, but I am on the side of the Lord! Heated discussions with my husband and son about this. Felt judged on Facebook as being judgmental and hateful. It is a lonely and fearful place to stand when you stand on the word of God. I never said anything mean or hateful, but that is how things are interpreted.
From all that happened between my nephew and this, I came up with this little poem.
My tears stream down from all the pain.
I feel alone in my disdain.
I do not hate nor do I judge,
But from my convictions,
I will not budge.
So let me live as I will,
Till tears stop falling
and my heart is still.
I am in a Bible journaling group that mixes art and the Word. They post pictures of their work. I posted my poem and said I planned on putting it in my Journal Bible by a verse about homosexuality. Well, my post was censored and it was deleted.
I ended up entering it by I Corinthians 16:13 --- Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.
I then posted an apology as I don't wish to offend anyone, but will continue to stand by my convictions. I also stated that I thought the group was more about art and less about the word of God. Many people came to my support. That post was also deleted.
A third post was started by those who believed as I did that it wasn't really representing the word of God, but was about the art. DELETE!
The long and short of it is that I made many new Christian friends who started a new Bible journaling group, where we are free to post our beliefs and agree to disagree without censorship!
