So, I've been torn with all the "gun talk lately. I've grown up with guns and learned from a very young age how to use them properly and safely. I also live in a smaller town and less populated state, so I haven't personally had to deal with horrible killings or murders, but I watch a ton of news and am well educated in politics. Now that I'm older and have kids of my own, I carry. I'm a young woman that has to be on oxygen because of several autoimmune diseases, so it sets my husband and my own mind at ease when I'm out and about, in fact a friend of mine posted something on Facebook today. And I quote,"I stand behind you in line at the store with a smile on my face...and a gun under my shirt and you are none the wiser, yet you are safer for having me next to you. I won't shoot you. My gun won't pull it's own trigger. It is securely holstered with the trigger covered. It can't just go off. However, rest assured that if a lunatic walks into the grocery store and pulls out a rifle, I will draw my pistol and protect myself and my family and therefore protect you and your family. I may freeze up. I may piss my pants. I may get shot before I can pull the trigger...but, I won't die in a helpless blubbering heap on the floor begging for my life or my child's life. I won't be that victim. I choose not to be. As for you, I don't ask you to carry a gun. If you are not comfortable, then please don't. But I would like to keep my right to choose to not be a helpless victim. There is evil in the world and if evil has a gun, I want one too..." This is how i feel. I also heard something the other night on a news show. They were discussing what schools could do to be safer and one of the guys said they should take retired veterans that either need a job or could use a job and train them to guard our schools. Have one to two well trained men or women at each and every school across America. Not only would it protect our schools and children, but it would give more Americans jobs. I just thought that was brilliant. If people knew there were armed guards at each and every school, I guarantee the little creeps that want to go shoot little innocent children and teachers, would think twice. There will always be evil in our country, no matter how much we protect it, but if there's a way we can protect it better, that makes everyone feel better. I also want to take a second and ask God to help protect our children and families and to ask Him to help our leaders make the right decisions. Also Lord, please help our country and the divide we have right now and to please lead more to know you God and to find peace in times of suffering and pain. Thank you for everything you have given us, even though we don't deserve it. You are a gracious and loving God. Thank you so much! Amen Thank you everyone for listening to me. If you have any comments, please leave them, or any ideas/ topics for me next time. Im new at this, so please forgive me if I am not the greatest writer quite yet. Thanks!

I was just listening to Tucker Carlson (my favorite news show) and he was discussing the fact that a certain pro-choice group would like to advertise abortion as a "blessing". They would also like abortion to be a funny topic on sitcoms and how it is something that can be publicly joked about. I'm not a blogger, but lately I've felt like talking about how much these topics makes me sick! I'm a pro-life, christian, God fearing, 36 year old woman that could not have children of my own. In was diagnosed with lupus at seventeen and have acquired eight more autoimmune disease since. This may sound like a huge deal to some, but I trust in the Lord and He has blessed me with a wonderful and caring husband that had two beautiful boys that now call me mom. I've been through a lot in my life, but have always tried to keep my eyes on the Lord. Back to my main subject.... abortion is so wrong! When you can hear your baby's heartbeat at six weeks, that means life. Your heart is whay gives you life. Without it...we are dead. How can anyone argue that? One of the ten commandments is do not murder, and with God, as Christians, we cannot bend the rules to whatever we want. We all son and we all go through tough times, but," Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV) “For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Good is always there to help us get through things. Instead of taking a life, give that life to someone who yearns for a little bundle of life. Im not just writing this to preach, but to maybe help someone stop and think before they do something they'll regret. Jeremiah 1:5 says, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart". God knows the number of hairs on our heads, knotted everything that we will go through on life before we do. God is ALL KNOWING, BUT ALSO ALL FORGIVING! I just hate the evil that is going on in this world today and I pray constantly for Christ's return, but until then,please think hard before taking a life. I know people that have and it had really scared them mentally and physically in some cases. This is not a laughing matter; a baby is a blessing from God. In also want anyone who may read this that has had an abortion to know that I don't just or think poorly of you. God forgives everything. You just have to ask, and He gives. Please let me know if you would like any information on coming to know God. It is really quite simple. Love Him, read His word and ask for understanding in prayers or with a pastor, and ask forgiveness for your sins. God loves all!
