This battle is getting very dirty this evil force is controlling us all using all of man kind to hurt one another them casting judgment on us for all its evil dead’s. We need to choose the power of love and breakdown the barriers that have divided all of us for many years. You are all my brothers and sisters and I love you all but now is the time. How can we all sit back and watch this beast hurt our own kind . I am ! I was never created to feel pain I will never created to hurt i was created to love . So what ever is in this realm that is not love in it’s purest form comes from evil. Gods army is one of love not guns and I truly believe that Eves actions were one of love to lure that evil to this place and we are Gods Army prepared by the light of Jesus to defeat this evil. Ownership comes from the evil one. Consumerism comes from the evil one . There are children today who will be sacrificed to that energy and children will wake up and eat dirt for food. Our apathy comes from the evil one but I am one who sees the beast and it’s methods. The time has come for new light and new wisdom.

Hello and welcome, Elijah,
I would offer a couple of thoughts to help you navigate successfully...

While you are able to post whatever you like (within site rules) in any forum, we who hang out in Singles generally agree to keep the subject matter relatively light in this forum. The preaching we leave for the Bible Discussion forum. Otherwise, have fun and get to know the good folks here. :)

Awesome. So if the devil made me do it I have no personal responsibility. And no sin. Woo hoo!

And Eve defies God out of love huh? Hmm... things are starting to sound so backwards for some reason. Kind of like contradicting the bible.

Yesterday, my five year old had her first eye exam. She did great! The eye doctor asked her if she was nervous, because she was talking non-stop, and she said, "No way! I am just SUPER. DUPER. excited!"

See, she thought she was going to be getting glasses. I have them, her dad has them, her big brother has them...she wanted to join the club, I guess. She said she hoped she could get some "pink princess sparkle" glasses.

What ended up happening, though, is that the doctor finished with the normal tests and then moved on to a bunch of tests I'd never seen before. And he re-did them a few times each, which had me concerned.

My daughter has...I guess it's called strabismus? Her left eye tends to drift off to one side when she's not purposely focusing it. It's happened since she was a baby, but her pediatrician never mentioned that it might cause vision problems. As a result of this occasionally wandering eye, her brain shuts off the signal to it- she can't identify some colors with it, and she's very near-sighted in that eye. If not corrected now, it can turn into a lazy eye, and cause problems with reading, and later driving, not to mention that kids can be cruel and she's about to start kindergarten.

So! We've been referred to Children's Hospital in Denver, where they will determine whether or not she needs corrective surgery on that eye.

My husband took this information very well- the doctor explained the situation, told us we should go to Children's, and my husband immediately said "Absolutely. Whatever we need to do." Meanwhile, I sat frozen in my seat, completely unable to process the information. Which is silly...it's not life-threatening. It's not like she's ill. She's not in pain.

But this is the first time I've received news like this. Seven and a half years of being a parent, and I've not once had to deal with anything more serious than an ear infection, a scraped knee, an upset tummy. I've seen other families go through serious things with their children that required multiple surgeries. I've seen other families that have one particularly accident-prone child, resulting in ER visits every other week. And here I am, internally freaking out because my kid might need the third most common type of eye surgery, where the biggest risk involved is that it might not work.

The last year has been a roller coaster. I hate roller coasters. They bring out the worst in me and show me what a wimp I can be.

Welcome back, Fenner. Long time no see! :D
Thank you Auntie Ant, I was living in the dark for a while, the real me struggling to cope but I am slowly with help eeking my way back to the life God intended me to live. Believe me when I missed all of you and your encouragement.

Criss my response regarding your daughter is in another thread, not sure how that happened but. As a parent it's hard to hear that stuff. Sounds like you are on the right path.

Hi magenta I missed you too. I was so happy to come and see your purple posts.
Thank you, Fenner :) I thought of you from time to time during your absence, wondering what had taken you away from us, missing your presence here, and the good solid sense you often shared. It is good to have you back :)

Hi Guys it's Fenner I had to start over, things look different here it's a bit confusing
Glad to have you back into the fold. You have been missed. Yeah, the place has changed quite a bit. I was very upset at first but now I'm just perplexed.

Thanks everyone. I can't even fully explain what I have been doing these past months because I'm still trying to wrap my head around my choices. I start therapy Monday. Thank God for persistent family members trying to make me see the light. I was so afraid of telling my family and friends what was going on because I was ashamed. Little did I know they could see through the happy facade. I'm so grateful for them. I am grateful to be on my way back to normal day to day things in my life. I'm glad to be back.

Yesterday, I was struck by this great idea that my yard could use some spiffing up. I mean, in the eight years we've been here, I've done quite a bit with it, but since it's such a large space, I've by no means gotten to all- or even most- of it. So, in an effort to come up with some kind of plan, I drew myself a visual aid so I could see the whole yard at the same time, rather than going outside and wandering aimlessly around in the sun.

*Drawing not to scale
*House actual size
*Animals not always in pictured locations


My first thought was that I have a lot of unused space. And trees. Not nice, tall, shade providing trees, either (with the exception of the ones on the north side). My second thought was that I'm really glad I'm not the one who has to mow the lawn here.

After much deliberation and over an hour of wasted time, I formulated zero plans and determined that the house should be doubled in size to fill up more space.

Also, I can't draw. Though I am pretty proud of those chickens.
