Truth is stranger than fiction:

My mom is 77 years old. August 9th she is marrying a man who is 5 years younger, spent 7 years in prison for having "relations" with his of age mentally disabled step daughter. My mom bought a house for them, because he legally cannot live where she lives because of parool.... too close to a school...., that if she died first he cannot pay property taxes for. So, when she dies, she wants my son (who is autistic) to live with them to help pay taxes.

Now, this is... will be all good because I have prayed. The God I know, the God of the Bible, bends His ear down to hear me according to the Psalms and God is just good... and what the devil meant for evil God will turn around for good for those that love Him!!!

What stranger than fiction, has God delivered you from or in faith will deliver you from?

Whew. This is quite the Jerry Springer story, Jacob, and it's happening to you!, well, your mom. Oh my goodness. August is quickly approaching. I recognize God's amazing grace at work in your soul to truly bring you to an "It is WELL" place in the midst of all of this. I'm sure there are ups and downs. I believe that you will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. (Psalm 27:13). It will be a testimony of His power and truth. His grace towards you is also an incredible miracle and I worship Him for who He is that He calms the storm in you that could have every reason to rage right now. He is so good.

Thank you for your kind words. I am not enraged, in fact not angry at all. I was just bringing up "when life is stranger than fiction". I'm surprised everyone else has a "perfect" life....lol... In fact I like Chuck and he makes my mom happy. I wish she would wait 2 more years, while he is on parole to see if he is the same man he appears to be, a SAVED, BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN, or if....

None of us have had a perfect life. I could definitely throw some crazy in the pot, but just am not quite ready to do that forum style where anyone on the internet could search it up. But know you're definitely not alone!!! I think all of those wishes you have for your mom and Chuck are love and great wisdom. Always listen to your gut and just keep on praying it through, like you already are.

Recently I was quarantined due to a pandemic that originated in China. My naive self didn't think it would make it to America but it did. Now we have to go around wearing masks constantly and using Lysol to which no one knows how safe it is.

The church has shut down or turned into small groups or an online session.

Also let's not forgot about murder hornets that made it to America. No one is talking about it now so that makes me feel reassured. 🤷

Anarchy is on the rise because the economy is still recovering so people are tearing down statues in their boredom. There are fights between black lives matter and all lives matter when they both seem like common sense. Now sport athletes are trying to raise sympathy for only making millions.

Recently I'm watching operation paint drop and she loves Jesus so I think I'll stand by her.

But yeah 2020 stranger than fiction...

That is kind of sad people are not ready to to put it out there because the testimony of God always ends good!!!! I have a book!

My parents were married but not to each other when I was conceived/ born, in fact I have a sister 4 mo. 10 days older than me. BUT GOD!!! My dad's wife ended up forgiven him and my mother (who was and who is now still is freeds). While my Dad when I was 13 married the woman, he cheated on my mom with, while cheating on his wife got married. NO JOKE. AND ALL ARE FRIENDS!!! NOW!!! lol.... Everyone is saved!!! That is the common factor for forgiveness!

This is a celebration of God! But I guess if the scarlet thread of Jesus does not run thru it; it comes out a different story.

Oddly, this is the second time I have seen this "Lineage" posted here on CC. The last time was, shoot, probably 2 years ago or more. Back then, the person posting it lived in the Birmingham, England area as I recall.

Mayhaps the Idiot in Charge ventures by here, he will have a better recollection of this?

Sounds weird what you have said but there is many blessings in it for yourself too. I believe that God is suppressing the enemies attacks in my life. It could be a lot worse. I am grateful for that, and i work a job and people are trying to get me fired, and i am grateful because i am still working.
