This day, new age…

With so many threats going around, there is no wonder some parents are being a bit overprotective with their kids. I for one am a ‘where you going, who you going with, why do you have to go, who all is going to be there, what adults can I contact, and just plain old NO because I said so,’ kind of parent.

Since the recent news outbreak, we will not be taking our 7 y/o trick or treating, trunk or treat, or anything else outside of our residence for Halloween. Does that keep us safe? Possibly. Will it be safer to stay inside than going outside? In my opinion, YES.

Frankly I don’t know if all this clown mess and rumors of purging is true or not. Me personally, I would rather be safe rather than sorry. Of course, the world is full of fools who think scaring the daylights out of folks is funny or even bigger fools who actually act on their impulses to do ignorant things. In order to deal with a problem, you have to make a mental checklist of things that need to be handled.

  1. STAY inside.
  2. KEEP family safe

In my opinion, by following rule number one for this Halloween season number two is already well on the way.

There will forever be the perfect Christian who states, “Well you shouldn’t be celebrating such a satanic holiday anyway.” I always looked at it as a time for kids to dress up as their favorite Marvel or Disney character and get candy. At least that is the way it was when I was young, CANDY was the main factor. When it comes to pranks and all the other foolery, I wasn’t down with that anyway but I am not knocking those that do. To each his or her own… Some folks take innocent acts and blow them clear out of the water. (IJS)

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” (I Peter 5:8)

My prayer for every one who reads this text is that you be mindful of your surroundings. Dear God, I pray that you protect each and everyone of us as we go on our way. As we venture out into the world and when we set up shop at home, Lord I pray the blood of Jesus covers us and our loved ones from head to toe. In Jesus name, I pray you send your angels to guard our families, protect us from our adversaries, and guide our thoughts in your direction. Lord I ask these things in your darling son, Jesus Christ name I pray. Amen.

Until next time…

You Can’t Win…

Recently my baby girl has been determined to watch all of my favorite movies and listen to the music that I love so much. Erykah Badu’s newest album has been on repeat for the past two weeks for us. ‘Monster in Law’ with Jenifer Lopez is one of the movies of choice but the all time favorite is ‘The Wiz.’

When I tell you that bad boy has been in constant rotation for the last few days, please believe me. Every song on there, I can repeat pretty much word for word and it’s been that way since I was little. Only now, I am starting to pay extra close attention to the words of certain songs. All this time, that movie and the songs had hidden messages for the viewer to grasp. Now I might be slow because I may be the only one who just figured it out. <shoulder shrug>

One song in particular is my favorite and that is the one sung by the scarecrow played by Michael Jackson. ‘You Can’t Win…’

Although the song is fun and it has a catchy tune, the song and the scene itself speaks of some true life stuff. For instance, the crows were steadily telling the scarecrow he couldn’t get down off the pole. They also drilled into him that he was nothing but garbage guts.

Have you ever been knocked down to a point where it made you question your self-worth?

If so, how many times have you been forced to live with doubts?

A snippet of the lyrics is:

You can’t Win, you can’t break even and you can’t get out of the game…

Whose game is it? Who says I can’t be even? Who set the rules? And how are you gonna tell me I can’t get out? Good Luck…

The first couple of lines alone is a slap in the face. It basically says you can’t win the game that you are playing. You can’t break even, meaning you can’t play on even or neutral ground. And to sum it up, now that you have entered the game – you can’t get out.

Now I may be wrong and for the record I was not high. LOL… But the message is clear.

My resolve is if I can’t win, get even, and can’t get out their imaginary game, I will just alter the way I play. By the time I piss off the creators, I will be exiled anyway. 🙂 If I get ejected from the game, I can start a new game. One that gives me the gold by giving the honor, glory, and victory to my father in heaven who is the original game maker. Y’all better feel me…

No one can tell you what you can’t do or what you won’t do, only you can decide on what you will do.

You all have a blessed day and I hope to hear from you soon.
