Copycat Maybe?


The Following intertitle.png

There has been a show that I started watching called The Following. I first  like any other show although it was on Season 2 and I felt that I was too behind to catch up, I thought that  may be watching for recreational time would “suffice”. However after the 2nd episode, the Lord indeed showed me that it was for a purpose.

The show has a great story line because it is really based upon how a CULT in 2014 could happen – how it obtains its followers, how the leader manipulates existing followers to recruit new followers.

It comes on EST on Mondays at  9pm on FOX – with Kevin Bacon – there are certain parts that I would call my son Jared in to watch with me and as a scene would happen, I would quickly explain to him how it happened and what he should do in an instance like this etc.

From things happening at restaurants, bus stops and most importantly school settings – Which comes to the point of this blog post –  On a scale from 1 to 10 my son’s current school district is considered an “7.75” and the next town over is a  “8.5 ”  so of course wanting my son to obtain a BETTER education I was pondering on a few things.

However, this morning in a “neighboring” school district that I have been contemplated moving into for the last year has had a tragic morning – I INDEED believe that this HORRIFIC incident that transpired was connected to the TV show, The Following –  I am NOT saying that the high school student was apart of a cult but “spiritually speaking”…….. you have to watch just only one episode of the show in regards to what happened to see what I am saying.

Child Speaks on School Closings –


Why My 11 Year Old DOES NOT Play Football


JaleelJaleel Gipson was taken off life support following a tragic football injury. (Facebook)

Jaleel Gipson,#33, died after a tragic injury suffered in a Spring tackle drill

A  high school junior, Gipson was lined up as a running back on the play that left him injured. While carrying the ball, he was hit in a traditional shoulder-on-shoulder tackle. Instead of bouncing back up, Gipson couldn’t raise himself from the ground. An athletic trainer was on site and attended to Gipson immediately while the team awaited paramedics, who transported the back to a local hospital and then to LSU via helicopter.

While it initially appeared that Gipson might be able to regain motor functions –Farmerville Principal David Gray stated the injury that the school was holding out hope he would make a complete recovery — the teen’s condition deteriorated much in the days that followed, to the point that his family apparently began to realize on Sunday that he would not recover mental capabilities.

That’s when the Gipson family apparently decided to keep their son on life support long enough to prepare his body for organ donation. Once that process was complete on Monday, the Gipson family said its goodbyes and removed him from life support.

Helpless in Sunday School – LOL


Ugghhhh!! My son was SOOOOOO BORED today in his Sunday School classroom! I didnt have the heart to video tape it! LOL

He was sitting there biting his nails and just starring at the sub teacher like he wanted to just get up and leave the classroom! LOL It is hard to really explain but I just know when my son is bored to the core and it was so sad…. There was about only another 15 minutes left and I went and excused him EARLY and when he saw me he started smiling……

However, when he totally removed himself from the classroom setting… he immediately said, Mom – oh my goodness! I was so bored in that class and I think that I need to be bumped up with the older kids! I asked him why and he started going into the topic for the day in Sunday School…..he was saying that the other kids were getting the story wrong about Samson and Delilah and the teacher did not correct them and that made him upset! LOL – I just love my kid to pieces! LOL

Even in regular school, God has gifted my son to be at least 2 steps ahead of the regular class so I am not shocked that the flow of his class is BORING him! I was like that as well growing up and being totally honest, it is still like that at times. Nonetheless, sometimes God wants us to adapt where we are until we can get to where we are going because everything is about timing! Of course HIS timing and surely not our own!

I asked him if he spoke up! LOL He said well mom, the teacher would have thought that I was trying to be disrespectful and a Mr. Know It All! I advised him that he was more than likely correct – especially if he would have addressed him in front of the rest of the classroom…. HOWEVER – I reminded him that he can always address anyone about anything…… but it is ALL ABOUT PRESENTATION and how it is being addresssed.

He smiled and said that he still wanted to change his classroom and I reminded him that sometimes God will leave us in situations because he sees something further down the line or sees that we have not mastered where we are. That may not be the case in all situations but if it is meant for him to be moved or other transitions need to occur that he is to pray about what he feels and things that he needs and wants out of a Sunday School lesson and we shall go from there…

He laughed….I laughed….. we hugged and ran in the rain to the car! I love 10 year old my kid!

Yesterday!!!


YESTERDAY!!!! ………  The enemy almost had me jacked up!  Yesterday I wanted to flip out!!! Yesterday I so needed my mother!!! Yesterday I needed a hug from my sister!! Yesterday I wanted to choke my son!! Yesterday I felt like not wanting to be my son’s mother!!!!! Yesterday I needed God to take the pain away!! The bitterness surely was on its way and I am glad that God “blocked it”…… ( that is a true blessing )

Yesterday I was so upset that I could not even cry!!!! Yesterday, God allowed me to go through a very STRONG AND STORMY situation and he then gave me the peace that I needed and allowed me to have and maintain victory over the situation!

Yesterday God reminded me that I have to regroup and refocus to keep my sanity…. Yesterday God advised me that He allowed all of these things that I felt were so bad to transpire… Yesterday God said.. all is well.

OH GOD!!! Is all that I kept saying out loud!I almost felt as if I was INDEED going to lose my mind and the ONLY thing that can shift me toward that direction is when it comes to “family matters/ situations”…..

Welp guess what! The enemy knows that as well so trust me when I tell you that he works in OVERTIME and OVERDRIVE in that area because he loves to see me breakdown…..

Listen as a parent – your kids will surely take “you there” if and when you allow then…..  My kids ….my teenage twins have really put me through it since they were 12 1/2 years old and ask me if things has gotten any better?

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm… umm yeah like maybe like 3 months out of EVERY year that has passed since they have been that age! OH MY GOODNESS – HELP ME! For my teenage ungrateful kids to ONLY desire to reach out when it is a FINANCIAL thing is a sad thing.

It is a HORRIBLE….HORRID….HORRIFIC….UNBEARBALE thing to try and raise your children with another parent who has 100% DIFFERENT WAY of raising them but they are in their care. AGONY I tell you…COMPLETE AND STRAIGHT agony!

Of course children “rather”  sway toward the mind set of the parent and their family that allows things to be a bit easier on them….. Mother or not – I have feelings and indeed to SEE that they do not care about that but care ONLY the feelings that comes along with my pocket book.

The children also have to take blame in the things that they have done as well as have not done through out this horrid process as well… Allowing his father to think “one way” when it is not the truth and my son not speaking up is basically “co – signing” with what the interperation of me in situations.

I have CARED what my teenage kids as well as their father and family have felt about me via parenting LONG ENOUGH…… at this point in my life I feel soo empowered to move on!

My teenage kids will turn 19 this July and I have not washed my hands of “them” but I am indeed allowing LIFE to take its course! I will continue to pray on their behalf but nothing more and nothing less…… I know that I am not the only mother who has NO RELATIONSHIP with their kids father but it is sad that two parents cannot come together and raise their kids.

I do not beleive in allowing kids “to run the show” and the course of the relationship styles of the parents! Well that is what has BEEN HAPPENEING over the years and of course I am the bad guy because I have ALWAYS stood my motherly / Christian ground! It does not feel good while it is working but I know that it is working for MY GOOD.

Praying that God will save my kids! No wait…. God will save them! So my prayer is that they DESIRE and CHOOSE to become and maintain their salvation with The Lord! It is THEIR choice…..

I feel so much better thanks to waiting patiently to hear the voice of The Lord speak to me…. I am well… all is well and I have peace within “again”….

Honor your parents – that is the Holy Scriptures and no success will come until they can learn to honor! Things may look good and feel good but trust me, God will “shut it down” when people least expect it. You cannot go through life not doing what you are supposed to do and feel that you are going to reap the harvest of The Lord!
