Girls 2 Ladies
I was taking them to school today. And I tell you... lol... that is the BEST time to talk to the children... when they are trapped... locked in place and cant escape the talk!
The youngest, age 5 was having a tude this morning, so the morning talk was about attitudes and how we should be grateful that we lived in a country where we educate our children. I told them that in some places on the other side of the earth, girls were not allowed to be educated... a girls only thing in life was to cook, clean and have babies... still. I know that that was the way it used to be... even here and other places... and it is still a good deal if you want to do that.
But girls now a days have so much more to look forward to. We can have a life!
We can do our own thing... make our own way!
Sure its good to have a good dad who takes care of you until you can get married and be taken care of by another man... if you want that... it's for you! But a good dad knows that sometimes you must allow some of the girls to run their own race, fly their own course... and women can achieve greatness these days!
Be flexible with your children... allow them to explore their world with their own strength and courage... allow them to step into their own shoes if they want. Oh sure you can be a strict ruler and say they MUST... but please be a good parent and let them go and make their own choices.
You cannot force something on someone if they don't want it.
We have a great PEOPLE whose individuality is prevalent! We are so lucky to be living in this age... and its only gonna get better for THE PEOPLE... we will overcome the evils in the world... Oh yes... our children can escape it, if we fight on... to keep the PEOPLE free!
On the way to school this morning, I gazed over at my 2 beautiful grand daughters... I grew a bit misty eyed... knowing the evils in the world that some day they must face... but I also know that evil will never overpower them! They are too smart for that... and they love to talk about GOD and the devil... which is sorta weird because my son is agnostic... he says I am silly. But that's OK... the girls are learning that there is a higher power... that they are not the most important thing... but that what they DO is the most important thing... and they know its important to do good things for GOD and for THE PEOPLE!
They are learning that they too... will grow up and have to handle life as it is.
I am going to have them well prepared! Dont'cha think? HAHAHAHA
I think of other children whose parents don't care... they are drunk or on drugs... I feel sorry for those children whose parents are addicted to such chemicals... making the drink or drug their top priority and are sorry parents. I pray for those children... because here in America and other places like us... those children have a chance for a better life! Our past will not hold us down!
Most people know I grew up in hell... my mother didn't drink or do drugs... and she was still mean and cruel and selfish... I feel like this hurt me mentally and emotionally, but also helped me to see the dark side and want to get away. I grew up having to clean up blood... like someone had been murdered... after some of the adults fights. I saw stab wounds and busted lips and black eyes and bruises... my step father even broke my mothers arm... twisted it around and karate chopped it and then escorted her to the hospital where she told the doctors 'she fell out of the truck'! Oh yeah!
I have often... throughout my life asked GOD... WHY???
And now I know its because when someone is in pain... I can say... hey... I been there... and it does seem at times that we cannot go on... but then... as time goes by, we realize that somehow we do go on... and we survive... and we thrive... and one day we make it!
Well, that is unless we go to the dark side and we give power to the evil one... and in that case we are doomed :( but with GODS help... and GODS strength that HE so generously gave us... we can all be winners in this life... and winners always leave the losers behind if they want to just be losers... alas... winners always help the losers to do better if they see the need!
That's what makes us WINNERS!
Don't allow your conversations to involve evil things or ideas... when you see something is wrong... it is! Fix it or get away from whatever it is, because it will drag you down. GOD forbid it be someone leading the lambs astray... GOD will protect HIS own and will stop the evil in its tracks!
Oh yes... this is a great thing that GOD has blessed us with... the POWER to resist the devil... and he must go away from you... it is written that all the evil ones are in subjection to GODS command! Pray to GOD all day, every day... and watch the relationship bloom!
So as I watch my grand children make their way in this life... I am so happy to see them learning the proper ways of GOD! I was so happy to see the 5 year old walk... uh... run into the school this morning... and what do I do?
I SMILE! :)
I smile as my heart is filled with the joyous knowledge that they will have a better life! And you can have a better life too, with GOD as your guide! HE's there... right there in your heart... if you only let HIM be!
GOD Bless us... everyone! IJCN,A
