Boring

by: jamryn

Oh me o my,

Why  why why?

Does this have to be,

As far as I can see,

A dull and boring day.

It's not  for me to say,

why It's this way.

For others - the day may be Grand!

Where joy and fun - go hand in hand.

Oh well - enjoy  it  if you can,

I'm going to look for something - less bland!

Gee I wonder if.........

by: jamryn

there was any trick or treating - recorded in the bible? What do you think? 

How about when Rebekah dressed her son Jacob up as his brother Esau, and tricked her husband Isaac to give away Esau's birthright and blessing?

Genesis chapter 27.

I'M FREE !

by: jamryn

See Dare to Share below......

                                                                     .I'M FREE

                                                                   I'M FREE 

                                                I'M FREE 

                                     I'M FREE 

                            I'M FREE 

                         I'M FREE 

      I'M FREE ! ! !

                                 TO BE ME !!!!

As I set here and  foolishly laugh at my self . Knowing only a few short months ago I had felt betrayed by anothers words , printed in someone elses blog.  Laughing at my self for being too sentimental. But hay - at least I was being true to who I am. I'm laughing at my self because here I am now taking a risk. I'm getting involved.  It makes no difference to me if you like my IDEAS - DREAMS - Or what ever I decide to post. At least I've decided to post them, I've decided to  LEARN - FEEL - CHANGE - GROW - LOVE -and to LIVE.  It may be for the first time in my 61 years or maybe deep down I 've been living all along. To me it does not matter. Because Its me - risking - to be me!

Dare to Share

by: jamryn

NOTE:  Peace to all, and an apoligie to anyone that feels I've been misleading and over berring.

I can only be ME! And I would expect no less from you - Than to your own self be TRUE.

 I found this poem in a booklet that someone left on a table - in our apartment building - To share.

TO  DARE

To laugh isto risk appearing the fool.

To weep is to risk appearing sentimental.

To reach for another is to risk involvement.

To expose your ideas, your dreams, before a croud is to risk their loss.

To love is to risk not being loved in return.

To live is to risk dying.

To beleve is to risk failure. 

 

But risks must be taken.

because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.

The people who risk nothing,

do nothing, have nothing, are nothing.

They may avoid suffering snd sorrow.

but they cannot learn, feel, change grow, love, live.

Chained by their attitudes, they are slaves;

They have forfeited their freedom.

Only a person who risks is free.

Dear God

by: jamryn

Sorry God - http://blogigo.com/thedaga  the devil made me do it.

God, when I receved your e-mail, I thought... I don't have time for this...And, this realy inaproperate during work.

Then I relized that this kind of thinking is...Exactly, what caused lot of problems in our world today. We try to keep you, God in church on Sunday mornings...maybe Sunday nights...And, the unlikely event of a midweek service.

We do like to have you around durring sickness...

And of course, at funerals.

However, we don't have time, or room, for you during work or play...Because...that is the part of our lives we think... we  can, and should, handel on our own. 

I ask for your forgiveness God, for thinking...that there is a time and place where...you are not to be FIRST in my life. We should always have time to remember all that you have done...for...us.

Fellow humans on this planet...If, you arn't ashamed to do this...

Please follow directions.

Jesus said 'If you are ashamed of me, I will be ashamed of you, before my Father."

Not  ashamed?

Comment here ONLY IF YOU MEAN IT !!

Yes, I do love God. He is my source of existance and Savior. He keeps me functioning each and every day. Without Him, I will be nothing, but with Christ, He stregenthens me ( phil.4:13)

This the simple test.

If you love God....and are not ashamed of all the marvelous  things He has done for you...

 Add your name to the comments here...for all to see.  I'm betting there will be less than 10 replyes. What do you think?

So we are on this train......

by: jamryn

( See the last blog before this one )

So we are on this train...... Headed for this magical station of all stations.   What is it that you've always told yourself that you needed to have ....that would make your life compleat?

 For me  it was the perfect little familey. White picked fence and all. Well that melted away 35 years ago, when I found myself a single mother raising a hellion of a child. No one ever told me about collic or ADD or other problems in life. 

Then I'd have said lots of money  would have been my magical stop. Untill 21 years ago - after 12 blissfull years of( 2nd. husband- with lot's of money) marrage I once again find myself ( for the 2nd. time ) as a single mother with 3 minor children - greaving the sudden death of a father and husband. Money may be nice but I'd rather had the husband alive and well. 

I'd say it's been a long long ride on this train and I'm just now discovering that it's true - It's the trip that I'm enjoying the most, and I'm excited and anxious to see what's comming around the next corner. How about you?

Let's try this again - The Station

by: jamryn

This is a story ( or motivational piece) that a friend sent to me - that I wanted to share with the rest of you.

The Station 

Tucked away in our subconscious is an idyllic vision. We see ourselves on a long trip that spands the continent. We are traveling by train. Out of the windows, we drink in the passing scene of cars on nearby highways, of children waving at a crossing, of cattle grasing on a distant hillside, of smoke pouring from a power plant, of row upon row of corn and wheat, of flatlands and valleys, of mountains and rolling hillsides, of city skylines and village halls.

But uppermost in our minds is the final destination. On a certain day at a certain hour, we will pull into the station. Bands will be playing and flags waving. Once we get there, so many wonderful dreams will come true and the pieces of our lives will fit together like a compleated jigsaw puzzle. How reastless we pace the aisles, damming the minutes for loitering---waiting, waiting, waiting for the station.

"When we reach the station, that will be it!" we cry. "When I'm 18"  "When I buy a new 450SL Mercedes Benz!" "When I put the last kid through college." "When I have paid off the mortage!" "When I get a  promotion." "When I reach the age of retirement, I shall live happily ever after!"...

...Sooner or later, we must realize there is no station, no one place to arrive at once and for all.  The true joy of life is the trip. The station is only a dream. It constantly outdistances us.

"Relish the moment" is a good motto, especially when coupled with Psalm 118:24: "This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it."  It isn't the burdens  of today that drive men mad.  It is the regrets over yesterday and the fear of tomorrow. Regret and fear are twin thieves who rob us of today.

So stop pacing the aisles and counting the miles. Instead,  climb more mountains, eat more icecream, go barefoot more often, swim more rivers, watch more sunsets, laugh more, cry less. Life must be lived as we go along. The station will come soon enough.

Gerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

by: jamryn

This fricken fracking ............computer just rejected my last entry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm MAD  I've got a meeting to go to in a few min's but when I get back home I'm going to try again. 

Oct 25, 2005 at 19:10 o\clock

Whoooooooooooooooo goes there?

by: jamryn

Beware! Beware !Beware! the ghosts and goblins are out early. At least they are out messing with my computer. I've just spent the whole morning  trying to access my E-MAIL.  This fricken thing( my computer ) or provider would not let me access my account.  It kept saying  error - error -error - saying that I was typing in the wrong password. I was not typing in the wrong password!!!  To get it to work  I had to go to change your password - and change my password - from my original password to my new ( same ) password. Now it will accept my password - which is and always was my password.

Got it?  I'm not sure I did.

Then I log on to Blogigo and casually read a few blogs.  I click the back button once to get back to the main menu and it sends me to blogs that I'haven't visited for days.

nan no nan no nan no nan no - it sounds like Twlight Zone to me. Or  is Ghost Girl's  ghost  celebrating Halloween early?

True or Falce?

by: jamryn

Generaly we block out all mention of judgment. We don't want anyone  pleading with us to change our ways. We've had enough of instruction in how to live. 

We say......

Please, God, no more yelling, no more trips to the woodshed. Treat me nice for a change; I'm so starved for affection.

Can't you see I'm black and blue, beat up badly in bones and soul?

God, how long will it take for you to let up?Psalm 6: 1-3  The Message    

God says.....

" I had children and raised them well, and they turned on me. The ox knows who's boss, the mule knowes the hand that feeds him, but not Israel ( or the rest of the human race ). My people don't know up from down. Shame!  Misguided God-dropouts, staggering under their guilt-baggage, Gangs of miscreants, band of vandals____

My people have walked out on me, their God. turned their backs on The Holy of Israel, walked off and never looked back. Why bother even trying to do anything with you when you just keep to your bullheaded ways? You keep beating your heads against brick walls. Everything with in you protests against you. Fron the bottom of your feet to the top of your head, nothing's working right.

Wounds and bruises and running sores____ untended, unwashed, unbandaged. Your country is laid waste, your citys burned down. Your land is distroyed by outsiders while you watch, reduced to rubble by barbarians. Isaiah 1: 2-7 The Message 

 

I would rather live my life as if there is a God, and die to find out there  isn't, than to live my life as if there isn't, and die  to find out there is........Do you even dare to take 8 seconds  - from your life and pray  this 8 second prayer?

 

 Lord I love you and I need you, come into my heart and bless me, my familey, my home, and my friends in Jesus name.  Amen

Pain.....part 2

by: jamryn

.........so  i've worked up the courage to make the phone call and ask the prices  for a haircut and color. Ouch that's more than I expected. That's more than I can afford. I'm angry, dissapointed and upset.  All I wanted was a little something to pirk up my feelings.

So now what?  I feel so trapped.  Nowhere to go. I can't go backwards and aparentely I can't go forward. So now what? All I see is life flowing around me while I'm forced to go nowhere. People hump... people say "That's OK "  pat me on the head and make a quick exit - so as to not get caught up into listening to my woe's. Or make a quick exit  hopeing not to be noticed at all.

Is that all we are ?  A race of invisable people  - all hiding from one another?Yet treading water in our own pool of tears? So what now?  Sink deeper in to the lounge chair and lose my self in what's going on in what ever mindless TVprogram.............to be continued

Traped in the pain

by: jamryn

 How do I begin? What do I say? It's a day like any other day. They all begin the same. I suppose you could say you're glad to be still among the living, to still be here.

Yet  the more you ease into being you become more aware of the PAIN. It's not - just in your back or just in your legs, it's all over. You try a few moments more of sleep. Nope that won't work. The body wants to get up - so getting up is what you do. 

The routine  for the day has begun. Fire up the computer. That will take a good 20 minutes, if I'm lucky.  Check the e-mails.  All junk - Deleat, deleat,deleat. 1 min. down - now what? Check the message boards and Bloging sites, anything good?

Not really, now what? What else can I do to hide the fact that I'm stalling what I really want to do..................to be continued later

We were ROBBED !

by: jamryn

Three seconds  - To win  and lose  a football game. That's got to be some type of record.

In my opinion - as I saw the ending of that game - Notre Dame  WON. The clock ran out and the officials called it a WIN!   Yet I guess to some people its  win at what ever cost. 

It's done and over - life goes on. It's small stuff and we all know - don't sweat the small stuff. One hundred years from now NO ONE will even care who played in the game let alone who won it.

Just put puting along

by: jamryn

 The missing( car)  has been found - safe and well - well as well as can be expected considering the radiator problem. For now we will be riding out the next 16 to 20 days pretty close to home.

No long trips or heavy traffic. Which means we'll be watching the Notre Dame / USC  blowout from home - rather than going to the stadium.  " GO  IRISH"  Beware USC  you may think you big horse carrys a surprise or two - but never - never  underestimate  the power of a Leprecon.
