Let Us Pray

It is a time of hurricanes, fires, diabetes, cancers, and many more things requiring prayers to our Wonderful God Almighty who is able and true. He has answered all of my prayers. Not that I've liked all the answers, but He is faithful to answer.

Dear Father God,

I thank You for Your great sacrifice of Jesus Christ Your Son. Thank You.

Please help the people on the shores of the Carolinas and inland. There is much flooding, and they need Your help. There is no government that can do what You can do!

Thank You for being there for Lance during his operation Thursday morning as well as his bride, Janet. Please guide them and comfort them. Ease their pains and anxieties. Be their great Comforter.

I pray Lord that all the oxygen would go out of all the fires here in California. Please put them out.

God, I also pray for our government along with the politicians involved. Please convict their hearts to do the right things for this wonderful country you have blessed us with. Bless them also, and protect them please.

Last and most definitely not least, I want to pray for Pastor Dave Delaney of First Baptist Church of Long Beach; and Pastor Kirk Beard and former Pastor Rick Patterson of Crossroads Baptist Church of Hemet California. I have been very blessed with these wonderful men as pastors in my life.

Lord, I pray You would lift them up above their enemies, and put a hedge of protection around them. They bear much, ask for little, and give so much. Please grant them Your peace which this world does not understand.

I love You, God. Thank You for prayers already answered. You are an awesome God!

In Jesus' precious name I pray. Amen.

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.

The Vacation Lesson

Back in 2012 when I became homeless, I started keeping a journal which turned into several journals as life kept right on happening whether I was participating or not. I decided I must draw closer to God. I thought I had, but I was so lost.

Someday I will discuss my journals, but this blog has also been sort of my journal as well. Many of us would agree that life is a journey.

For about a month and a half I took a vacation away from my journey, and it really shows. I don't like it when that happens.

My mother came to visit. It was a good visit. She stayed about a month and a half. I stopped everything for this visit, because I haven't seen her for 25 years. Ya know, don't stop studying the word of God no matter what. Even my mom will tell you that.

The problem is that I didn't even realize I had done so. I was still going to Church, but I had somehow shut down inside to make sure everything was perfect for a someone I don't really know. It was difficult but good.

Anyway, my lesson is learned...Again! Since God is in control, acknowledge Him! Keep up the studies. The rest should just fall into place. I guess we just try too hard to please our loved ones. Well, I thought I did.

Anywho, have a great night. I will be back to writing shortly. :)

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.

Pot Roast Failure

The title says it all, doesn't it?

Update: Apparently roast beef tastes better cold. Who knew? *heh*

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.

Crossroads Baptist Church 8/12/2018

Today Pastor Kirk gave a service on God's word being our focus, our goal post. Of course, but do you go to church just to hear the word and then live your life as if you are a part of this world? Or are you moved into action? We, as Christians, are called to be Christ-like. No, we are not perfect. That is why Christ paid our sin debt in full.

After you surrender your life to Christ, you become a new creation! We are now different than those of this world. So when we live our lives, we should stand out among others. What do I mean?

Exactly this: We are called to be different. Not self-righteous, but God-righteous. And in this manner, he emphasized 5 main points that we, as adults, are responsible for when it comes to our children's education.

1. Encourage testimonies. Parents and children are not required to leave who they are at the door. No one else does, and neither did Daniel. Daniel 1:3-8. This is a good way to let people know who you are and what you are about.

Yes, it gets tough, but it is worth it.

2. Parents, lead by example. There was a father whose son was very important to a particular team, but the final game was on a Sunday. He was conflicted. Should he let his son play and teach him that baseball was more important than God?

An easier way to go about this conflict is to let the coach know at the beginning of the year that Sunday's and Wednesday's are priorities elsewhere. That way, it is no surprise to the coach or the team.

3. Students should get 100% benefit every year. If you study and work hard, put your whole effort towards your education, there is no reason you cannot achieve your best. If your best is a B or a C, then you have done your best! But if your best is an A and you get a C, you are cheating yourself and God. God gave you the talent and ability. Make sure to use them.

4. Set goals for your children. Many times children go away to  revivals, Vacation Bible School, etc., and within a month or two they are back to the way they were before they left. We call that backsliding. If you set goals for them, encourage them, be a part of their lives by getting materials that you can use together; it can be a great influence on your child's life.

5. Your children's friends DO matter. Good people do good things. Bad people do bad things. Life is hard enough for our children. If they start out by telling you that their friend did this and that, but they are good person, stop it right there. It may be true. Are you willing to risk your child? I am not.

We have to be diligent. Look on their Facebook accounts! Both your child's and their friends. You will learn more than you ever wanted to know. They post everything!

I have to check on the pot roast right now, so I hope these words of encouragement helped you in some way. :)

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.

I'm Back!

I have been on an amazing journey ever since I lost my adopted brother, John. I am almost on my feet my feet again and ready to write. It may take a few more days, but there is so much to tell. As if anyone wants to hear it, lol.

That's okay though. This blog is Rosemary's Thoughts cuz these are my thoughts. Thanks for being around. I have missed everyone. Some are no longer with us, and I missed them very much.

I know a lot has happened with politics, but I don't want to talk about that right now. There are just too many things in life that are important. Not that politics are not important, they just don't consume my life like they used to do.

Let me know if anyone is still out there, okay? Thanks.

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.

My Choice

Wow. It has been a long time, but I am still here. Big election coming up. I'm supporting Ted Cruz because he is a Constitutional Conservative. I don't have to look any farther than that little book CATO has for sale at a minimum price. It is called the Constitution.

Our next Supreme Court justices will also be of this mold.

I did not put all this blood, sweat, and tears into an effort for the same old hogwash. Everyone have a nice day and be good to each other.

  May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.

Two Years Later & I Am Now a Minister

I won't bore you with all the gory details, but Saturday, June 14, 2014, I graduated from Southern California Bible College & Seminary. Well at least they can't say I wasted my time! Hmm. I guess they could, but it won't bother me, lol.

How has everyone been? I've missed you greatly. I pray all the best for all of you. Take care. :-)

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.

Hard, but not impossible, times have fallen

It has come time for me to say so-long for a while. I won't have electricity for quite a while, so I can't access my computor after June 29, 2012. Thanks Obama. "Speaking of the devil" (don't get your panties in a wad, it's an expression Only), we are not done with you, President Obama. We shall legally have all 50 states sign waivers so that your healthtrap sinks its self within a decade. If you only knew how much you guys and gals have meant to me over this past decade or so. It is incredible. When I first started blogging, I couldn't walk. Now I can. I've met some very fine people, but please remember to always meet in public and in a group! I'll go to the library once in a while to check on things, but I don't expect to find a place to live until a year from now. Do not worry. I've been down this road. I'm better prepared this time. At least I pray to God that I am... May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.

Tea Party Patriots: Onward March in Remembrance of Andrew Breitbart

Today is a very sad day because of America's loss of Andrew Breitbart, but he would encourage us to move forward most enthusiastically. For those who have been on the sidelines, it's okay. Pick up your banners and join us so we can finally bring our country to its constitionally limitted authority.

Andrew Breitbart was born in 1969, he leaves behind a very charming wife and four children. He was 43 years old. This is tragic.

I would like an autopsy so we can know possitively that no jihadi can claim responsibility for Andrew's demise, because he put his life on the line for ALL Americans. It is true that his life was in danger for us.

Now it appears the only way to pay tribute to our well respected and tirelessly working friend is to pick up where he left off so what he started was not in vain. I accept this challenge. I am back.

Please contact me if you can help in any way toward our next Tea Party (Long Beach Patriots) on April 15, 2012.

Lastly but NOT leastly. Please pray for Andrew's family, friends, and other loved ones. Please send them words of encouragement. If anyone feels the need to send them angry, obscene words, please remember that God is watching you. I do not have to because God will take care of this family and He will also deal with you. So please stay away if you do not want to be encouraging. Thank you.

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a Happy New Year.

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.

Egypt Again on Fire

The Middle East may be at the point of finally showing her true colors. This is good in the sense I would prefer the truth than the lies that come from doublespeak.

'They' have been protesting for 4 days now, and the Egyptian military continues to mow them down. There remains only one question. Who are 'they'

Are they from the Muslum Brotherhood? Is this a reaction from the original protestors who were tired of religous intolerance, drastic punishments, murder for protesting, etc?

I ask this because I truly do not know who is in charge of Egypt. I am afraid they may lose many millions of dollars from visitors in the coming years. At least until we can figure out what is the religious make up of Egypt. If it is sharia law, you can say good-bye to prosperity; hello poverty.

Now for some humor relief. The New York Times seems to think noise is not that big of a deal. As a matter of fact, they think it's just swell! Ask The Cairo Calls! Please leave a comment, not a phone call. ;)

I pray for Egypt. I hope you will do the same. Merry Christmas. When you open your presents, please remember those Christians that are stuck in the Middle East through this transition and acknowledge them with prayer. Thank you.

Hat tip: Big Pharaoh.

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.

bin Landin Bites the Dust, Thx to USA

If you would like the facts about this (in a way they would only write about a democrat), please read MSNBC and/or Fox News. Why? Because all I want to do is celebrate. :)

I haven't been able write much lately, but I will try to post everyday once I have found a place to live. I'm not homeless yet. I have until the 8th of May, and I have a good prospect in hand. I just don't want anyone to think I've stopped writing or died. Nope. :)

I do miss you all. No matter how many friends I've made, not many know my brother died and went to Heaven in November 2010. I was shaken off rocker. I'm trying to come back, but I have over 10,000 unread email messages! Ugh.

Thank you all for your patience. You are the greatest!

PS. Just so you know...I won't really be celebrating his death. Why not? Because we are not supposed to (if you are a Christian). We are not supposed to hate our enemies. Gosh, Jesus is incredible, cuz I'm having a hard time not hating them (islamists, not Muslims). Have a great day.

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.

Egypt on Fire

If you do not know anything about the chaos caused by Mubarack to mow down the citizens of Egypt, well...you may wish to find a more detailed explanation elsewhere. What I have to say about this situation is an unconfirmed, unknowledgeable piece of my mind.

I am torn. I want the Islamists exposed as to who and what they really are and what their intentions are, yet the Egytian people seem to want freedom. Freedom to do what?

If it is the Islamists, they want to create the caliphate. If the citizens of Egypt truly want freedom, then they're stepping into President George W. Bush' plan for democracy to spread throughout the Middle East.

To be honest, I'm not sure which group will win. I do know, however, that Mubarack is going to lose this fight this time. Finally. I'm tired of the double talk and the help we did not receive for the $1.5 Billion dollars that comes out of OUR pockets. They have the nerve to charge us $93 a barrel for gas?! That's insane!

With all that said, I have been watching each country in the Middle East, parts of Africa, some countries in South America, and then becoming a coordinator for our Tea Parties at home. Oh yes, Asia is another one in my sights. Wheh!

Ten years of almost everytime being correct, I do not consider myself an expert in any of these. Why not? I think your focus truly should be on one country so you can truly grasp their culture, government, etc. You must also be able to visit or live in the country of your choosing.

I've heard all the pundits yapping their gums, and I've had to walk away from the TV (FOX News). I can't stand the same story over and over again. Not when there's nothing NEW(s)!

I know this isn't much, but I really do feel bad that I haven't been writing sooner. Everything little thing reminds me of John, and I'm not doing very well. That's my problem, not yours. Thank you all for your precious, caring comments. They really do help.

Most people don't know what to say, and just being honest always brings a smile to my face. Even if it is through sweet tears. Can you imagine what it must be like to walk and talk with Jesus Christ, Noah, King David, Jonah, the Disciples, and all the people who've gone before us? WOW!

No, Muggy is not there! Hahaha. If you do not like what I just wrote, you do not have to read my blog! As you can tell, I am still upset. Oh, BTW, WHEN ARE THE AMERICAN MUSLIMS GOING TO STAND WITH AMERICA AGAINST THESE TERRORISTS??? Yeah right...

Have a good day, and I'll be watching the Steelers whoop Green Bay on the Super Bowl this Sundays. ;)

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.

John

Who was John? He was my brother, my best friend, an artist, a person who could calm any argument, and so much more. John went to Heaven November 12, 2010, at 8:36 pm officially, but I saw the clock say 7:11 pm. The official time is when the doctor came to turn off the ventilator. His heart stopped at 7:11 pm.

I love my brother, John, and he loved me. He took very good care of me, much more than I deserved. That’s for sure. John was such a special man not only to me, but to many others as well.

He was generous, unselfish, kind, loving, strong, warm, and he was very much a great man. I miss him so dearly and my only comfort is the knowledge that he is now in Heaven with God.

I would like to thank everyone who has been praying for us through this very difficult time. It is sincerely appreciated.

I must now get ready to go to the funeral home to make arrangement. I was hoping by writing this, I could find some strength. I believe the only strength I have right now is that of our Lord’s. I’ll accept that! Have a blessed day everyone, and remember to tell your loved ones that you love them. You never know when it will be the last time you see them on earth

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.

Why I haven't been writing

My brother may be dieing, and he really needs our prayers. I've been busy trying to care for him. If you would just take a couple of minutes out of your busy day to say a prayer of hope and strength for him, I would surely appreciate it. Thank you. Have a blessed day.

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.
