Plans the reality vs ideals

the past 2 weeks have shown me again the need for a Plan B

We all think we have it “all together” but reality is most of us don’t

Sometimes we get blindsided by events that change our plans

Other times it’s our own fault that things go wrong because we dropped the ball or skipped something in our plans

To have a plan for the most part is better than no plan at all

But a poorly made plan can be disastrous if it’s not open to revision

Plans help with Time Management, I do tend to try to do too much

The reverse is also true Proper Time Management greatly helps to keep Plans on track

 

A monkey wrench was thrown into my plans recently

So now while I was on track for some educational plans I’ve been sidetracked for some others

I was let down when suddenly I had the proverbial rug pulled out from under me

Am I disappointed YES but will I be held down permanently due to it? Nope

Happy Easter 2014

It’s actually Saturday evening
The sun has not yet fully set
Thought I was going to have plans for tonight but no call came in
So I sit here thinking on some of the events this week

I was able to get some items posted on some Yahoo Groups that allow TagSale Items
The RTC meeting was a bit uneventful because no candidates showed up
I will detail more of my thoughts about the no show stand in for Tom Foley on my political blog
I enjoyed some freedom this week just beng able to get up & go to the RTC meeting without begging for a ride
I hate that it is so bad of an economy that we have a 2nd car but can’t even afford to get it fixed
With my son being on a boat out in the gulf I have use of his car & it is liberating

I have been cooped up all winter
This spring has been a bit weird in the weather dept
we had warm weather followed by SNOW this week
From COLD to WARM – Mark Twain’s words about if you don’t like new england weather wait 5 minutes it will change was quite true this year & this week
It’s been absolutely wonderful to be able to get out come & go when I want to

I am debating getting my hair cut this year
It’s a very hard decision because quite frankly I do not trust people with scissors
Well more accurately Women I do not trust with my hair
I have had the best luck with Italian MEN in NY doing my hair
Women not so much – in fact major disasters with women & scissors & my hair

My hair is a reflection of my mixed heritage & it’s not like a white girls nor black nor native
Not everyone knows how to handle my hair because of that
A hair dresser who was an Italian Man explained to me why they we able to do my hair best
Because he had long hair like mine at the time he said we have the same type of hair
Rollers & Sitting under the old fashioned dryer if we want full body curls
Wash & Wear ringlet curls by jumping out of the shower & putting conditioner in so it slow drys
FRIZZY MESS if it’s HUMID out or we end up sweating
I had to laugh he hit the nail right on the head unfortunately he’s in NYC & I’m in CT

Tomorrow is Easter
I pray that it finds you in good health & better finances
Tonight I’m watching the Cecil b. deMille Ten Commandments
One of these days I’ll get the dvd because the older movies low tech that they are stay truer to the bible
The modern made bible movies are embellished quite a bit (Ninja Warring Angel?)
Well I’m going to end my musings for today & go watch the movie
Sounds like the popcorn is done popping

Side note to the ladies – isn’t Yul Brenner pleasant on the eyes (0;}

Bible in the News? Rumors of Wars – Crimea Syria Russia and USA

Friday was Good Friday & Sunday is Palm Sunday that just passed;
Today is Passover celebrated by the Jewish people
Easter Sunday is this week if you are a Christian

As Easter approaches I’m thinking about both the bible & recent events in the news
The past few months when you look at the news & then think back to what you heard or read about in the bible it does bring up some questions & thoughts

Well our headline news stories make those prophecy verses seem a much more real & applicable to our time

Syria is mentioned in the bible & is having war inside for power

Russia is moving it’s troops around while Crimea is trying to get out of the Ukraine & reattached back to Russia

The USA is being asked by many to join in on these fights outside of our country

Meanwhile the major USA media is not bothering to report in full about the war on it’s citizens

I look around & wonder…
At what point do Christian churches as a whole start talking about the prophecies in the bible?
Start telling their congregations to get their lives & homes in proper order because the times are clearly as the bible said that they would be…

Too many megachurches talk about feel good messages of prosperity that have at best only the barest of bible truths but neglect the majority of what the bible has to say about morality & godly living

Many people do not even own a bible in this day & age as more people chose to be atheists for one reason or another & more saddening are the churches which do not have bibles in them nor do their own congregations bring in bibles from home so they do not even know what the bible actually has to say. They do not read the bible to see if the preacher is actually quoting from the bible in context

I believe that everyone has the right to chose to be whatever they want, it’s their life & soul & so long as they are alive they get to chose who they will follow so I do not try to force anyone to be a Christian.

I also understand that not everyone who is an atheist today will be one tomorrow or maybe next year.
There are also many people who profess to be Christians but in reality they are as much a Christian as I am bird able to fly…
I can call myself a bird all I want but since I have neither feathers nor wings, I am not a bird no matter how much I might hang out at the aviary.

I mention those 2 groups because it makes me sad that for many in the first group they chose to be non-believers because they were hurt by people calling themselves Christians but in fact are not by their actions & attitudes

I hope & pray that in time both groups get to know the Lord on a personal level
I pray for peace but know that the bible tells us what is about to come
So my prayers are that people who I meet & friends & family come to know the saving grace

Child Birth is such an amazing thing that only mothers who have given birth can understand just what I am lacking in words to say

Then after all the pain is over all of it is forgotten & the Love & Praying for your child starts. As mothers we never stop praying for our children until we take our last breath.

I’ve been BLESSED to have 2 beautiful children who have grown up to be productive citizens

My daughter has blessed me with 2 grandsons 12 years apart so I’ll be able to have the joys of playing with a growing child for several more years. With her first she was still at home & I was in the delivery room with her

My son hasn’t yet had any children but in time when he is ready to settle down he will

Prayer Is Always “Justified” even if people do not want to accept that notation

There are days when I’ve been praying hard on my knees for my children both as children & as adults as well as my husband

What some people don’t quite understand is that there are different types of prayers but God tells us to always be in prayers.

We talk to God in our prayers & just like we talk to our parents here on earth we do not only talk to them when we want something

Most times we do not “hear” directly from God in an actual voice but we can see His Reply to our prayers in what happens & is seen around us. Most recently my son was taking a leap of faith for a job out in Louisiana & got hired for the job BUT there was a problem with the schedule for him to get into a class that the company offered.

I got into prayer with a prayer partner & we asked that things would be made possible for my son if this was the job for him to have & to provide housing & funds until he started work on the boat.

We prayed for an hour or more on many things & just prior to us actually hanging up My Son Called. Prayers Answered & All was Set into place for him to get his orientation & the training & the way for him to earn some spare cash & housing until he moved into the company dorm.

God answered our prayers & my son didn’t even know we were praying for him at the time when he called & when I finished talking with my son I called my prayer partner to tell her tht some of our prayers had in fact been answered

 

 

Real Life in CT Video Series

It’s been a very busy week so I didn’t get the written posts done even into the drafts that I had been planning

I have decided that I’m going to try to make short videos of the pictures I take during the week. My plan is to at least once every 10 days get a completed short video made using the pictures & adding some narration to them

My 1st attempt using the Nikon movie editor which came with the camera I’m rather disappointed with; it won’t allow for much to be put into it & it only makes a movie about 5 minutes long. After getting reach the limit messages & unable to add Credits or Narration directly in I decided to just try inserting the created Nikon version into the Windows Movie Maker.

The result wasn’t ideal & the headset narration is barely above a whisper, so I don’t know if that is due to the movie in movie or if the headset mic is just not going to work inside of Windows movie maker.

Now that I know that the Nikon movie editor is so poor I won’t bother using it again & just go straight to the Windows movie maker to make the movies.

Nice thing about the Windows movie maker is that I can send the videos right over to vimeo & youtube from the program instead of having to go to the sites to upload. Subscribe to my channels directly so that as I upload you will get a notice of new uploads or you can just wait for the updates for when they get posted here on the blog several days later as time allows

 

 

Constructive help about how to improve the quality of the pictures & videos is appreciated

#StandWithCT #2AClapBack #CTChoosesLiberty

This week will be Rant & Rave on the show at Around the Cabin. The 1st of April was another awful nightmare addition of the gungrabbing laws forced upon law abiding citizens.

There will no longer be allowed Long Gun sales if a person doesn’t have a pistol permit.

Where a Hunting license was enough to be able to buy a long gun that is no longer the case now in CT.

No more long gun sales private citizen to private citizen now ALL Sales MUST Be RECORDED WITH THE STATE OF CT APPROVAL

 

There is a rally up in NY state that I have seen pictures coming back via facebook.

There wass already a 2A Rally scheduled at the Capitol in Hartford on the 1 year anniversary of the signing of SB1160. The Bloomberg funded GunGrabbing Mommy groups actually tried again to get the permits cancelled. When they were unsuccessful in that the racists turned over to the social media tool ThunderClap to use social media to bully the elected to bowing to their will.

This time we law abiding citizens are answering this attempt to silence us & bully us with using the very same tool to send our reply ENOUGH!

The gunowners group CTCarry has started their own ThunderClap demanding the repeal of the unconstitutional law & declaring that CT Chooses Liberty.

We law abiding citizens have been adding our voices to this message.

We invite you to add your social media voices to ours if you Stand With CT & Protecting Our Constitutional Rights including the Right to Keep & Bear Arms.

Click the link below add your Twitter, Facebook & Tumblr & then at Noon on the 5th of April at the start of our 2A Civil Rights Rally in CT a single message will be sent out.

Once you have signed on Share with your Friends & Family the link so they can also Make Our Voices Be Heard
