CHRISTmas...and standing on the truth.

I am taking off my censors today..I don't mean to offend anyone, and if I do I am sorry...I am tired of being politically correct, I am tired of having to censor my beliefs..I am tired of having to hide what I believe and accept what is thrown in my face..whether it be on the television shows..the "news"  notice the quotation marks..or even others opinions..hello fox news....  This is my blog and I enjoy talking to you guys and I enjoy the visits and your comments  and truly hope that you will continue to visit after I have spoken my piece and hope that you will not be offended and know that what I have written is from the heart and spoken with love and peace...

I am a Christian...I sin..I fall short of the glory of God daily.  But here is the thing...Jesus, my savoir loves me and continually holds me up when I fall..Jesus, the one who was born to save the world has saved me...little old me.   I am a speck in the grand scheme of things..nothing spectacular about me..nothing really special or out of the ordinary..But Jesus saves me..loves me and cherishes me.

I say Merry Christmas..I believe that Christ was born, died on a cross, and rose again (Easter)...and he did that to save the world..not just me...I believe that homosexuality is a sin..so is stealing, lying, cheating, gluttony, envy, anger, selfishness..one sin is no greater than another...I am not going to judge you..and hopefully you won't judge me...I am going to love you..hug you when you walk through my door or I walk through yours..I am going to pray for you..as I hope you do me..I can hate the sin..but love the sinner..

I may not always say the right thing all the time..but I will say Merry Christmas and I will sing Silent Night and I will pray for my friends and enemies alike..I will sin..I will fall short of the glory of God.  So don't get offended if I wish you a Merry Christmas..please don't get offended if I quote scripture to myself and you overhear it (consider it a gift from the Holy Spirit)and please don't judge me and make an assumption about me because I may sin....I am a sinner..So...

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!  and may you all be blessed beyond measure and if you don't know my Jesus..may someone be put in your path to help you find him...Merry Christmas...

I believe homosexuals were born that way ...I had a friend from the time I was a child, he acted like a girl he played with us girls and liked Barbie's and dress up...he grew up to be homosexual. God created him just like you and I, how can that be a sin? God doesn't create sins and children are not born sinful. The problem is that people are too opinionated period....I could careless what your religion is or what you believe in or what political views you have...I read your blog because Of the crochet work...I think you could careless about my beliefs as well. Religions are over rated and sometimes religious people come off as bible thumpers and kooks. Just because people "voice their opinion " doesn' make me change my views at all. I'm very open minded and a catholic but I don't believe whole heartedly in the bible or the catholic teachings...after all people like you and I made the bible and the teachings, does that make them sinless? Or could they have been wrong in some of the doctrine or maybe they were homosexual but still in the closet....I don't believe everything I read or am taught....

Thank you for standing up for your beliefs. I feel the same way. I don't know if this was brought on by the Duck Dynasty fiasco, but I stand by what Phil Robertson has to say and believes. Everyone should be able to voice their opinion without be criticized. Have a Merry Christmas.
