Long Time, No See

Welcome...I am sorry that it has been a long time since I have posted anything. I was so busy with school work, and it seemed like no one was reading my blogs. It's 4:45 in the morning, and realized that if people don't read my blog, it doesn't matter. These blogs are for me to reflect on life. I would love to see more people come and visit, but if they don't it's okay. Anyway, a lot has been happening since my last blog, and since this is a counseling blog site, I will talk about psychology stuff. This summer I got a dog. His name is Jeri (short for Jericho), and he is a wonderful black lab mix. He thinks he is a lap dog, and doesn't realize how big he is. Sometimes he sits (with his butt) on my lap. It's so cute. Dogs are a great pet to get. I have heard once that if you want to become a parent, the best thing to do is get a dog first. Getting a dog first helps you learn to become a better parent. It helps you learn how to become a parent. I have to honestly agree with that. I don't treat Jeri as a dog (for example, leaving him outside to sleep). I treat Jeri as my child. He is a family member. My husband is daddy, and I am mommy to him. It's been great having him, and I have learned a lot on how to parent. I still have a lot more to learn however. Anyway, there you go. I have posted something that deals with psychology, and I will be posting again, so please come back again.

Dogs (or cats) are a great way to learn to become a parent, and a good one at that.

Happy New Year

I hope everyone had a good New Year - I did. It was fun. We danced, we partyed, and we prayed. What do you think 2007 is going to bring this year? Good and bad news or a mix? I'm not sure but I hope it isn't detrimental. Anyway, Happy New Year. I probably won't be writing anymore blogs anytime soon. However, I hope you enjoyed reading my blogs.

War...What is it good for?

With this question, my response is 'absolutely nothing'. Why do we need war? Especially this war? Some of you might disagree with me at first, but at the end you might start seeing what I am seeing. You see, I listened to this sermon today, and it totally changed my way of thinking. I didn't like the war we are in, but if you asked me why, I would have probably said it's stupid before I heard the sermon. Now, I can totally give you a correct and honest answer. I know more of why I think this war, we are in now, is stupid. I can tell you why not only this war, but most wars are stupid and not from God. One verse in the bible struck me in this guy's sermon, and now I am totally against wars unless they absolutely have to happen like saving the jews from the Nazis. Here is the verse that struck me:

Mathew 5:43-45 says, "You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor[a] and hate your enemy.' 44But I tell you: Love your enemies[b] and pray for those who persecute you, 45that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous."

Love your enemies? Love your enemies? Does this mean that we bomb them? Does it mean that we go into their houses and destroy their families? NO!!!! Love your enemies means praying for them, trying to help them as much as we can, etc. What is love? Ask yourself that. What is love? Do good to them. You know two wrongs doesn't make a right. Here's another verse I would like to give:

Luke 6:27-32 says, " 27"But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. 29If someone strikes you on one cheek, turn to him the other also. If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic. 30Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. 31Do to others as you would have them do to you. 32"If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' love those who love them. 33And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' do that."

I know this is a lot to take in with these verses, but it makes a good point. What do you do to enemies? You love them, you do good to them, you bless them, you pray for them...This doesn't mean blow their heads off. This doesn't mean destroy their families. We must love the sinners, we must love our enemies, we must love the people who we are against...

These verses that I just read, who said it? Truely, who said "love your enemies", who said, "pray for those who mistreat you"? It was Jesus who said it. And I can tell you, Jesus does not like this war we are in now. He doesn't like many of the wars that have happened. I can tell He doesn't because of reading the bible. Read the whole new testament. Read it all. I know there's more that backs up what I am saying.

Remember this, two wrongs don't make a right. Also God doesn't believe in revenge. Somewhere in the bible, it says something about it. Sorry, I can't seem to find them right now, but this gives you the opportunity to do some bible studying. Before you respond to my blog, do some bible studying. Tell me why you agree or disagree with what I am saying. I would love to hear it.

God Bless you all, and remember the golden rule.

Laughter is always the best medicine

In the beginning of this video, it asks: "Kan man ha roligare??". My first language is english, so I wasn't sure what it meant. I went to babblefish to look it up, and it is swedish. Babblefish says that it means, "Able husband had funny?". I think what it means is, "Is my husband able to be funny?"

Many people, who go to church, believe that women are below men. Women and men are not created equal. I believe this is one reason why people are turned off on going to church. I am a Christian, and it is hard for me to go to church because I have to listen about submitting to my own husband. Any church I attend, I have some woman come up to me to tell me that I must submit even if they don't know me (they don't know if I submit or not). They are so gunho on submission. What is submission by the way? Many women believe that submission is obeying their own husbands. Others believe that men are the household. I don't believe in this. I am sorry, but I totally disagree. Some of you might not like what I am saying, but I believe men and women are created equal. God doesn't have gender favorites (i.e. God loves men more than women). Okay, so you might be wondering what about in the bible. The bible says that women must submit to their own husbands. Yes, the bible does say that, and the bible is correct. HOWEVER, we must interprete the meaning. What is the meaning of this? What I believe the meaning is, is that women must respect their husbands. They must listen to them. They must be understanding and caring. By the way, this goes both ways as well. This doesn't mean we must obey them, or they are the men of the household. So why did God say that women would be beneath men as it says in Genesis 3:16? It says that women were going to be ruled by them. What I believe this was actually saying is that men were going to rule women, and this is what is going to happen to them. God didn't say do this. He said this is what is going to happen in the future. Now, I know there are going to be arguments about this, but I want to say that God is not a sexist. God is equal. I believe God believes in equality. Men and women are equal, and God doesn't have any gender favorites.

I would love to hear about your comments on this. I would also like to hear about stories you might have that involves equality, any concerns you might have about this subject, any agrument or agreements you have, etc. Please write what is on your mind about this subject. Thanks.

BTW, this is my first time blogging, so I hope I did a good job on this.
