I'm Still Tired

You are not going to convince me that I should redefine God's definition of marriage cause two guys or two gals want to get hitched. It ain't nothing but sin. It is rebellion against the institution of Marriage that God designed. Why do we need a law to define marriage as a union between a man and a woman? What happened to the backbones of the minister's that would even consider preforming a homosexual marriage? Isn't God's Word enough? Jesus teaches us to love our neighbor as our self, but He also told the lady caught in adultery to go and sin no more. I am tired of folks like Rosie telling me I'm intolerant. My response is "go and sin no more." Come and go to Bible study with us and get you heart right.

I am tired of being told I have to be diverse and tolerant of other people's religions. There are only 2 religions. One is Christianity by accepting Christ by repenting of your sins and asking for His forgiveness and mercy and grace. The second religion is everything else. There is only one way to righteousness, and it is through Christ Jesus. He said you would have to be more righteous than the scribes and pharisees (the most religious people ever) to get into Heaven. You can't do it on your own. I don't have to be diverse in my opinion, I am just repeating what Jesus already taught. Jesus commanded us to go and tell and make disciples, baptizing them in the name of Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The Imperials had a song in the 70's that got it right. "Oh it won't be ol' Budda, that's sittin on the throne. And it won't be ol' Mahammed that's callin us home. And it won't be Harri Krishna that plays that trumpet tune. And we are going to see the Son, not rev. Moon."

I'm Tired of Liberals and their Agenda

I am tired of people with liberal agenda's calling me a racist, or a bigot, or an intolerant redneck if I believe their agenda is based on a practice of sin, living in sin, is a false religion, or follows Pelosi-Reid-Obama doctrine. I believe God's Word. All of it. We are all descended from Adam, and we are all descended from Noah. One race. The human race. We are all from one family. That's why it is ludicrous to call me a racist because I don't believe in the direction our President says he wants to go. That's right, I oppose the socialist direction and the bankrupting of America that he seems bent on creating. Doesn't have a thing to do with the color of his skin or mine. One race. I am right and he is wrong.

The bumper sticker on my car says "Annoy a Liberal, Work Hard and Be Happy"

I'm Tired Too!

I am going to confess this is not an original idea. I found it from a 63 year old veteran whose email I lost, so I can not give him his full credit by name. He said he was tired. And I agree. I am tired too.

I am tired of people whining about BP not getting them some money because they don't have the documentation. BP made a mess, and as far as I am concerned they are doing good to clean it up. They offered to replace lost income to the fishermen and other coastal workers. All the workers have to do is prove their 2009 income by showing their tax returns. Should not be a problem. The rub is that many of these folks work on a cash basis and don't report all the cash as income, so it is tax free income. I have absolutely zero compassion for people that cheat the tax system, then whine cause "BP won't gimme no money!" I am tired of the whining. Oh, and just a word of caution, I double dog guarantee you that BP is going to report the check they gave you to the IRS. You may want to go ahead and report that income.

July 4th at the lake

Our happy band of Tiki Travelers is on the road again. We like to spend the 4th of July at Smith Mountain Lake in Southwest Virginia. We have a good spot picked out to view the fireworks. Aunt Bri, Uncle Eddie, Sammie and Charlie will join us with Granddaddy and Grandmother for a week of quilting, swimming, boat riding, and fishing.

Grandmother has asked that we paint her ceilings while we are there, so we will squeeze that in too. I just hope she doesn't want us to start painting before 10 in the morning because it is a vacation.

Have a great holiday. Happy Birthday America!!!
