Military Women Fighting on the Frontline


First let me thank a blog that I follow called Digestible Politics for making me even brain storm this morning! I was up getting my mind ….body and spirit together then I started blogging! I then fooled around and ran across one of the blogs on this very same subject as well and my mind started GOING. …….hmmmmmm!!!!! Lol

I am a woman but I also enjoy my femininity.  Just because I may be able to do some acts like a man does not mean that I should!

WOMEN fighting on The Frontline…… Welp ” TO ME”…..This sounded like a Feminist desire..wanting to be on the front line as men. Some of them who are mothers and wives should talk to their families about making thus huge and over the top decision.

When you see a female police officer when she first joins the force verses about 5 years AFTER she has been on the force, you may almost NOT even recognize her……… Those male characteristics…tendencies…form…aura..etc..etc..etc.. takes its toll on her.

By now, if she lasted that long, she is one of the boys…..she has a horrid potty mouth like them, has tons of aggression,  her walk is even different,  her past flirting eyes has now changed into a gazing barking bite, she seriously feels more comfy in pants than a nice flowing summer dress, she is less likely to show her emotions too! As women, YES! We are stong…. but wisdom allows us to know our place and do well in “those places”…..

When I was in high school I also tried out for the ALL BOYS  WRESTLING team because there were a bunch of girls who complained to the principal that there should be an ALL GIRLS WRESTLING TEAM.

The principal said no but talked to the coach and stated for any girl who would try out and was able to MAKE IT could be apart of the team.. When I think of wrestling, I think of MY SON!! Why? Because he is a male.

I tried out and made it but I also chose to QUIT…. I did it “just because” and to prove a silly point but I had enough sense and understanding even while I was young and in HIGH SCHOOL to know that the sport was for males only and I cannot complain if I am a girl on a DOMINATED  MALE sport and cry because someone touched me inappropriately!! 

One other girl passed as well and she stayed on the team for 2 weeks and quit because she realized THE TRUTH as well. She never really admitted why she quit but I knew why and others did too!!!!

Women being in MALE dominated roles do this I feel because she wanted to prove something to men and even herself.. She has changed her poodle character for a pit bull and has changed her dainty and sweetheart personality and aura to a Doberman Pincher.

I’m all for women and equality …race equality etc. But fighting to be a CEO v.s. fighting to go undercover for the DEA, be on a Navy Ship with over 2, 000 MEN who are known to be out at sea for several months at a time to wanting to be on the frontline and weighing about 130 – 150 pounds and NOT able to carry their fellow soldiers who will be roughly 220 pounds …JUST IS NOT HAVING WISDOM.

I know and understand to a certain degree how some women may feel via certain positions but when they made G.I. Joe, there was a reason and a statement behind that… and like 50 years later they made G..I. Jane…the movie with Demi Moore as well as the Barbie doll.

Guess what! The doll didn’t sell well and the movie only did well because Demi Moore was a household name via acting but there were NO SEQUALS to the movie or another mock movie was ever made with a women in Navy Seals let alone being on the front line.

Hunger Baby!


Yeah buddy, I just finished watching this – OF COURSE……. OF COURSE…. OF COURSE….. this movie has been out forever right! LOL

Yeah… I know that I was LIKE REALLY LATE, seeing this movie but I am glad that I did….. I mean the commercials that they put out did not phase me at all. However, a great deal of people stated that in most of these types of movies that there is always a huge following via book readers before the films are even made. Well, yes I do read…but I would never buy this type of Genre of book to read… Even with the TWILIGHT SAGA circus – I really have grwon to dig me some Twilight but I have NOT read any of the books or will I……

Going to the movies at least 2 times a week, I will no longer pre – judge every movie like I have been doing over the last few years….

Nonetheless, indeed I liked this movie and now I CANNOT wait until Hunger Games Part 2 comes into the movie theatre!

Relationships

A Great Tip!


This is an AMAZING tip for Christian Singles!!! ( actually anyone ) but if they do not understand nor believe in God granting …blessing….connecting you with the God given mate rather than just “the right mate”…. this may NOT be for them!

I have watched movies and then fell all super duper in love with “the thought” of LOVE! Movies like P.S. I Love You had me crying for like a month and then made me fall totally head over heels in love with actor Gerard Butler

You know, the main star who played in the Roman movie called 300 with his favorite phrase >>> THIS IS SPARTA!! LOL ( love it )

 

I ” all of a sudden ” had an interest in going to Ireland! LOL What am I doing going to Ireland!!!LOL How many black Irishmen / Irishwomen do you know or? Okay, maybe 2 huh!!?? LOL

Welp, God helped me really quick because he allowed me to see another movie that the star played in called The Ugly Truth as well as seeing him go from woman to woman in the Hollywood lifestyle! Geesh, I woke up really quick!!!!  LOL

Dark Knight Rises – Batman


Movie was amazing, I mean SERIOUSLY! Please go and see this epic youthful…teenage…young adult…adult and senior citizen movie! LOL ……

ANYONE at any age would  love this seriously….. at least any American! The Dark Knight Rises, Batman Movie made me sad but a must see! Watching The Dark Knight is like gazing into a mirror on a waning moon night: chilling and mesmerizing.  You know you’re watching a good movie when it puts a smile on your face right from the start. In the The Dark Knight it may be a twisted grimace but given the right perspective there’s enjoyment to be had in even the bleakest subject matter!

Love My Cousin!


The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another’s desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together.

Happy Birthday Baby!!


Today is my son’s birthday and boy oh boy… from today until this Sunday am I going to be tired. Since today is  still a school day and a work day, I did not want to get home ” too late” and I made 9 pm my END TIME for the day! My son and his best friend I am sure will wear me out from 3 to 9 pm! Movies, eating, arcade gallery, shopping, and the park will have me begging for mercy by the time I am DONE.

So we left the movies and I had already seen the movie Men in Black 3 but the kids did not and everyone liked it but the birthday boy! That made me feel bad because he really wanted to see the Marvel Comic Movie, The Avengers….. Well it was starting at 715 and it is a 2 1/2 hour movie…. my body politely advised him NO! So now they wanted Asian food from a local mall and of course the mall that they chose was WAY across town from where we were located. However, it is not my birthday so I just went with it in stride…

Yes, I am having fun and who would of thought that I could have THIS MUCH fun with two 10 year olds! His best friend is hilariously funny and acts like he is at least 18 years old! NO SERIOUSLY! The things that comes out of this boys mouth is WROTH FILMING!

Done eating now it is time to go to the stores! I told them BOTH that they can pick 3 stores to go into and purchase things and we have to SAVE MY STRENGTH to get me through Friday, Saturday and Sunday early evening!.. First store is the ALL BABSEBALL HAT STORE! Like really? A store dedicated just for hats? Umm okay!

Oh gosh please just pick two hats and let’s go… I cant take it in here anymore – someone may see me and think I am a tomboy! LOL.. Just kidding but why does it take SOOO LONG to buy a few hats…like really boys? Okay next is of course…. what seems to be EVERY KIDS DREAM… the store that waste time and energy in  a child’s life as well as what I have seen unfortunately break up some marriages because the man does not want to take his duties seriously because he sets aside time for these little devices…called VIDEO GAMES!!!! ( so silly and crazy too ) I already know out of the 3 stores that they are going to walk into that this video store will take up the MOST time…..

Okay please take 10 minutes to review what games interest you and let us quickly go to the check out counter alright boys?

I said go pick out games NOT GO PLAY GAMES IN THE VIDEO STORE! Do you think that for “just for today” that they are uncapable of HEARING ME AT ALL? Lets try again….. 1…2..3..

Umm… yeah… that DID NOT WORK! LOL However, I advised them that we are NOT going to the 3rd store because they are not following directions… Okay they got to the counter so fast, I did not even have the time to take a quick photo! So the FINAL STORE and then I can get home….clean my house ESPECIALLY my messy room and just relax….. we are going to the tennis shoe store and I KNOW this will go really fast….

My son’s best friend saw that I was a little irritated and he knows that I LOVE TAKING PHOTOS..so he wanted us to take a photo together to ” calm my nerves”…………LOL “NICE TRY” but let’s go…I am tired boy!

Yes the tennis shoe store and my son’s ONLY TENNIS SHOE that he loves is Adiddas and all of their products.. So now we start the birthday shopping and he has 5 MINUTES ONLY to pick what he wants… Yes, I said it.. 5 minutes…  When I was growing up and in my era… you would be blessed to get two things…. LET ALONE your mother allowing you to pick ANY 3 STORES that you want to shop in and who cares that I give him a time limit because like I tell him.. I DONT HAVE TO BUY YOU THE THINGS THAT YOU DESIRE….I only have to buy you the things that you need and even with that being said.. there are a great deal of parents who just DONT or simply CANNOT do it. So be grateful.dot.com and hush it!

I am an Adidas Girl too, so I can understand how he is grabbing everything addidas…. Socks, Watch ( that he does not need ) and with LITERALLY 2 minutes left how in the WORLD could he FORGET TO LOOK AT ADIDDAS TENNIS SHOES!!

 Like for real… 2 minutes left and I told him he a minute for each shoe he wanted to pick out…He said I only have two minutes left!!! I said well that means that you ONLY get 2 pair of shoes…. ” GET OVER IT “…..

Alright the two minutes are up….. Did we ever make it to the counter? Did my son get frantic and complain that he would not have time left? Would he want to change his mind in what he wanted? Will he be a winner? LOL Will my little 10 year old birthday boy be VICTORIOUS in the tennis shoe store called Champs! LOL

YES!!!! He was a winner!! he grabbed two pair of shoes and the salesman went to the back and had my son’s shoe size and went to the counter….. See!!! Kids, DO HAVE THE UNDERSTANDING OF TIME!!! LOL

LOOK AT MY SON’S FACE BELOW……TOO FUNNY! He was saying to me……… Mom that was not cool – I am tired… YOU HAD ME RUSHING!! For real son??? LOL

So let me get this straigth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My little birthday boy’s little dilema!  >>> He mad at me cause he only had 5 minutes to pick out ANYTHING HE WANTED! LOL – WOW

The rom-com

Think Like A Man has made $33 million dollars in its opening weekend beating out The Hunger Games! Honey, that is AMAZING for an African American full cast foundational movie! I am shocked….. Nonetheless, I read Steve Harvey‘s book via what the movie is based upon called Act Like A Lady and Think Like A Man..

I said to myself geesh… wow – Mr. Steve made MILLIONS off of this common sense stuff!!! Man, my father raised me to THINK AND ACT LIKE THIS since I was in middle school!!

I am sure that this movie is SUPER DUPER FUNNY but from a Christian perspective …….. it is sad that there are INDEED several women who do not have common sense. Whether there were a lack of male role models in their lives to the lack of strong, wise and feminine women to show them how to take a stand and just plain old common sense.

Poster of Think Like a Man

However, with Christ in your life……..your standards become higher of what they would if you were not living for HIM. Common sense though in some situations that women seem to settle with….deal with and put up with is a TRAVESTY.

I am a single woman….. I am a single parent…. but I have standards! I had standard EVEN BEFORE I LIVED FULLY FOR GOD! So with that being sad… why is it that a great deal of women seem to settle for anything and anyone just so they are not LONELY?

Do not get me wrong… I desire to be with someone and be a Godly wife to a GODLY husband… but I rather WAIT than SUFFER!  You will end up singing……writing……wondering why that you have found love in a hopeless place because you are lonely!

I am indeed praying for my fellow sisters in Christ as well as the women of the world to DISCOVER CHRIST and find out who they are! Who God says that they are……..

Some married women also need to ask God for wisdom on how to minister correctly to single women as well….. I say this because as a married woman, if you are going HOME to biceps….triceps….and nice big strong hands…  show a little compassion and just admit that you know how the single woman can feel at times! Dont sing that HOLD ON story without being transparent yourslef okay!!!

I am NOT going to act as if I am a woman who is going to sit and shout to the roof tops that GOD IS ALL THAT WE NEED AND YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE WITH ANYONE!!!

PLEASE! God’s 1st institution was MARRIAGE!!! If anything I will pray that God will grant you strategy…tactics…wisdom… more grace and more mercy to HOLD ON until “that time comes”….

2012 and beyond seems to be the devil’s new and improved playground for dating and everything else… but ask God to keep you ….really have the desire to be kept… and it can happen!

I am a witness… a sometimes complaining witness LOL but it can be done!

Do not settle….you will pay for it EVENTUALLY – it will not be worth it…
