Hey all...if you have stumbled across this page, I am sorry I took a hiatus from blogging, but I am back...just head on over to my new page.

Ugh! I'm so annoyed with the Left!!!

I'm so annoyed with the world!

So much is happening right now with both sides of beliefs attacking each other. 

It all started when Mr. Cathy, CEO of Chick-fil-A mentioned in an interview with the Baptist press that he believed in a traditional view of marriage. The bloggers went crazy!

Okay people, is it a secret that Chick-fil-A is a bible based Christian company?

~No! They play hymns in their offices and they are closed on Sundays so their employees may spend time in worship.

Is it a secret that the Baptist press probably believes in the same things?


So what really is the big deal? No where in his interview did Mr. Cathy say anything about hating the LGBTQ commuinty. He simply stated what he believed in. I'm pretty sure he wasn't asking you to believe in the same thing. 

Then, just yesterday, Bristol Palin, wrote a post about her experience with the media and going on to Dancing with the Stars. You can read the post here. As any proud mother would her mom, Sarah, tweeted and facebooked about it. The bashing began.

What bothers me the most is the lack of respect. When asked if she would mind having a gay dance partner, Bristol responded she would prefer to dance with her past partner, over any one. I can understand this, as they are probably use to each other and there would be less getting to know you stages. However, Bristol did say she wouldn't mind having a gay partner. 

Bristol also mentioned in her post that she believes in the traditional view of marriage, between a man and a woman. This is because Bristol is a CHRISTIAN. She believes in what the bible says is right. 

As a step-mother to a child born out of wed lock, I can understand that Bristol, while being a christian, knows she made a mistake. I can also believe that Bristol has prayed and prayed and prayed about her sins with Levi. She made a mistake, she is Human, She isn't GOD, and she was a teenager for crying out loud. 

I'm not saying, Tripp, is a regret, I have a hard time believing Bristol would feel that way. I just believe in my heart of hearts she knows what she did was wrong and has asked Jesus Christ for forgiveness. After all he was put on the Cross for her sins, my sins, even your sins, the believer and the non-believer. The bible clearly states that No One will get to the Father without the Son, it doesn't state you have to be perfect. Perfection on earth happened One time, and only once. His name was Jesus Christ and he lived the PERFECT life, yet died because of sin. Those sins weren't his, but he did for them anyway.

This post is a big rambling and I'm sorry for that. I'm just getting so tired of people not reading the whole story and just bashing people for their beliefs because they aren't main stream. I, myself, do not believe in gay MARRIAGE. I do truly love the people in my life that are homosexual. I do believe they have a right to the rights of homosexual couples, I just don't believe it should be called MARRIAGE. The bible clearly states "MARRIAGE is between a MAN and a WOMAN" but the government was founded on a separation of CHURCH and STATE so I agree that the government can't tell a Gay couple they can't share insurance, or be seen as a truly committed couple. At the same time, I don't think a union between a MAN and WOMAN that isn't founded on the principals of marriage with Christ as your foundation should be called MARRIAGE either. 

Maybe I'm wrong, Maybe I'm right. All I know is that this is how I feel and really who is going to read this anyway. I just had to get it off my chest.  Also, I do not actually know Bristol or any of the Palins, but I do enjoy some Artic Cat snowmobiles (machines as they call them)!

I'll leave you with these three quotes from the New International Version of the Bible:
"He who has the son has life; he who does not have the son of God does not have life." 1 John 5:12
"But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions-it is by grace you have been saved." Ephesians 2: 4-5
"For is by grace you have been saved, through faith-and this not from yourselves, it is the GIFT OF GOD-not by works, so that NO ONE can boast." Ephesians 2:8-9

Are you doubting?

I was reading book #29 Breakout! in the Left Behind the Kid's Series, by Jenkins and LaHaye tonight and came across this quote :

"If there's one thing I know, it's that God has a purpose for things. Everything fits together like a puzzle, but we're looking at it from a human angle. All we can see is the misisng pieces. He sees the big picture and knows how it all fits."

I believe everyone in life needs to hear this and remember that the Lord really is in charge. If I learned anything in my first year of marriage it is that. God is in Control no matter how much I worry about things, God will provide and take care of the situation. I truly believe that I was living life to much in control when B lost his medical certificate back in October and The Lord knew I needed to have my eyes opened to this truth. Everything got changed, I felt like my world had fallen apart, nothing is how I thought it would be. I was losing faith in everything. Then I prayed....and I prayed hard, for a sign that the lord really was listening to me and was there for me. I prayed that prayer on a Saturday, I got my sign the very next day in church, Pastor Walter Wood gave a sermon in the Signs of Life series at our church, North Cincinnati Community Church.

The main takeaways from this sermon for me " Everything happens in the Lord's time, we are not in charge HE IS!" "If you Believe you will see the glory of God, just hang in there." Jesus is in control, he may delay things, but he is in control! There is no answer or delays sometimes to our Prayers, but as long as we believe we will see the Glory of God, eventually! "The Lord never sleeps, he is always working, and he hasn't forgotten us"

As Walter was saying these things, I had to stifle a laugh, as this was my sign that the Lord really was there, he was listening to me....I felt like a fool for losing hope but I prayed again, a prayer of Thanks to the Lord, and now I truly believe the way the last year of my life has been was so that I would lean more on the Lord, less on myself!

God is Good!

"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day as enough trouble of its own." Matthew 6:34


The Pampered Chef

I just wanted to put a quick post out to let my readers know I've become a Pampered Chef Independent Consultant. If any one is in the Cincinnati area and is interested in having a show...let me know :)



In less than a year

We've gone from Future Mr and Mrs...to Mr and Mrs...to what now feels like roommates.

I don't know who this man is I'm leaving with. He isn't the sweet, caring, calm, level-headed man I married.

In October 2010 B pulled a muscle while at work on the plane. The pain from this pulled muscle caused him to pass out....for those of you who have any knowledge about the airline industry...you know this is a big UH OH!

Since Oct, we have been fighting to get his medical back. 5 doctors have told us and the FAA they believe it was just a vasovagal attack and nothing is wrong, yet they can not diagnosis this for certain. So we are grounded.

As some of my long ago readers may remember B and I did not get to go on our planned honeymoon because he got sick in the airplane as we were going to leave the states for Mexico. So we had planned on taking one in December when his next scheduled vacation was. We were going to go to Paris...the off season for travel there and would have been able to use our flight benefits. Don't ya know....you can't non-rev on other airlines while you are on sick time....therefore Paris was called off...

We were able to go to Montreal (because that is one place his airline does fly to)...just where you want to go in the middle of the winter! It was nice we were able to get away from home...but it was nothing special...snow covered with not a whole lot to do in the winter.

I was suppose to go back to MN for Christmas...but again using the rule of only being able to non-rev on his airline...that gave me one flight a day to get home...wasn't going to work out...so I missed out on Christmas! YAY....Life as a pilot's wife...sucks...

Now the new plan for B is to study for his GMAT and get his MBA.

This means our apartment has turned into basically a dorm room...he is studying all the time...and spending no time focusing on us.

We've had to ask both sets of our parents for help with our finances. EMBARRASSING!

We had plans for this summer for me to get to go down to part-time at work...but with the loss of his income and did I mention the GOOD insurance from the airlines..I have to work as many hours I can get. Which isn't a lot when Doctors are out of the office every week meaning an x-ray tech has to take a day off...and with so few of us...it seems to be my turn every few days.

My whole income will now be going to insurance and my student loan payments. Which is great since you know...we need to put a roof over our heads and food on the table. Not for our sake but for the sake of B's son A.

I'm sorry this post has been about complaining..I've run out of outlets and need to put my anger somewhere.

I hate my life. I'm sick of fighting every day with my husband...who after yesterday I've started calling roomie...because he doesn't feel like a husband...he feels like a roommate. and i don't want a male roommate! They are no fun! We snap at each other all the time...there is so much tension its like walking on egg shells every day from the moment I wake up to the final tug of the covers because...with our king size bed he seems to still not get enough covers..when I'm barely covered at all...

Any advice out there???

I pray everyday...I'm really starting to rely on my faith in the Lord...but I'm beginning to lose hope at the same time...I'm not strong enough for this...if i didn't have the Lord on my side I know i'd be a lot worse off then I am...but something has to give......


thanks for listening!

Signing Off
a.....lost and hopeless....

Edit after the comment I received:

B is not able to get Workers comp, because the injury is over. It is the passing out on the plane that is the problem. The FAA took is medical license away. Worker's Comp says that this has nothing to do with the injury and therefore will not cover anything for us!...But thanks for the thoughts!
