End of a Season

Here we go saying goodbye to another season on this planet we call earth. Seasons come and seasons go. I really can never say which one I love the best. I feel as though I have been blessed by all one way or another. This summer end is different for me. As I go into my second semester at Waubonsee Community College as an older adult and do I mean older I am reminded of the love of my dear Grandma. My beautiful Grandma passed away suddenly this summer. It was just before the fall session started. One minute she was on facebook commenting and posting like she could and the next she was bed ridden and unable to speak. She had end stage renal failure. She passed at hime in her bed in her sleep basically. I think she did not want to fight. She had to bury my mom nearly 5 years next month. And she could not get herself to bury her son, my uncle about 3 years ago. I know God has plans for us on this earth but the enemy wants to destroy us with famine, disease, cancer, murder, bombings, etc. Parents tend to want their children to live. I will never understand what my dear Grandma went through all those years ago with my mom and uncle. I never buried a child and I pray I do not. But it seems as seasons change, school starts, ends, year changing, babies being born, a person passes this earth. A season changing.

Please feel free to read Ecclesiastes 3:1-8. It sums up my seasons in a way. Life in general. May God Bless your weekend!!

Television

So why do you have cable and never have time to watch tv? Why are you wasting money on a bill that is  better spent somewhere else? I love it when people say I need the internet. Okay, I get that. It is only cheaper if you have cable tv. But you also have to pay for the cable tv people! Think wisely upon your decisions. Yes, financially we waste money daily. Trust me, been there, done that, still suffering! On top of it the so-called programs are unhealthy for children. I thought Disney was good for my girls when they were young. But some of the young tv shows were more about your appearance than anything. How does that identify a young girl growing into a young woman? The language in shows also. We as parents and individuals need to be vigilantes with what we are presenting to our children. Are we reading the books we think are cute for them? Are we looking ahead of these programs they want to watch? Do we get busy and become lazy? Or just too busy because we join everything and everywhere that we forget to care for our own home environment? Parenting is one of the hardest jobs in this world!! I regret all my mistakes, daily! I wish I could go back and change from the beginning on but I can’t. I personally do not have cable. I do not even have regular tv to watch. Yes I have a tv just in case I want to watch a dvd but I haven’t in numerous months. I feel like there is just too much junk colliding up my mind. take time to do other things in your life to relax for once. Also, you just might be able to save a few bucks down the road. I may be part of this world but I am not allowing myself to be “in” it. I sometimes get my words and letters mixed up but the God made it clear.
