The Good-The Bad & The Irony

We had horrible storms this week and all of a sudden everyone on FB was talking about Touchdown Jesus being on fire. I’ve always had very mixed feelings about Touchdown Jesus. There are days when I drive by and think it’s beautiful and then there are days when I think it’s a bit much. I now know what Touchdown Jesus cost and I have to ask is that really necessary? Right down the street from Touchdown Jesus is a very poor city, where people are struggling to survive; would the $250,000-$500,000 be better used to help these families? What would God say? Does the bible give guidance on this? If a vote was taken at the church what would the members say? The irony is just a couple miles up the road there is a Hustler store and it’s sign is still standing.

Who watched Oprah today?  There was a woman on there today that I wanted to reach thru my t.v. and smack.  Her name was Michelle, ironic right?  I love the letter one of the wives wrote to “the other woman”, she asked her why she didn’t think she deserved more then a man willing to walk off and leave his wife and kids.  Oh how true!  I love seeing these women with smiles on their faces and hearing them say they are “happily divorced”!  I know so few people who are “happily divorced”, it took me way too long to be “happily divorced”.  I was young what can I say?  We deal with a bitter crazy ex-wife, let me correct that Mr. Wonderful deals with a bitter crazy ex-wife…I refuse to give that craziness any of my energy.  I love Mr. Wonderful but I often ask myself how did he marry such a mess? 

I don’t understand women who don’t “honor” other women.  I had it happen to me this week, no not a cheating husband just a friend that I trusted that I shouldn’t have.  I just talked to my bestie (well actually we texted because she is back packing in Montana) and I told her I’m not mad I’m hurt.  I rarely give someone a second chance when I have been hurt; but I did and lesson learned.  I wonder at what point do people grow up and realize that being two faced usually catches up with you?  My Face Book status yesterday said, “If you don’t want the truth, don’t ask me…. If you want something sugarcoated, go eat a donut.”  Why can’t more people just be that way?  What makes a grown woman act like she’s in fifth grade, playing both sides?  I wonder what that woman would do if I took everything she has shared with me and blabbed it….well I’m pretty sure she’d be in for a rude awakening.  The irony is the person who stabbed me in the back I really like as a person, but surely see what others have seen for a long time.  I got caught up with trying to help her find peace in a lot of turmoil around her, I now know I don’t owe her that. 

What do you think about cheating husbands, is it more common then we think?  Do you blame the husband, the other woman, the wife?  Do you think once a cheater always a cheater?

Do you know women who could care less about their integrity as long as they are looking out for #1?  Are you one of those people who try to do the right thing and when it backfires you feel like punching someone in the nose?  When you are hurt do you confront the person or just go on?

Do you question the way churches spend their money?  Do you understand why I have issue with a statue of Jesus that causes traffic jams and cost somewhere between $250,000-$500,000? 

Would love to see your comments, I’m sick and need to be entertained!

About Michelle

I started my blog as a way to connect with other paper crafters and of course it has gone a totally different direction. I've been able to share my experience as a mother, my hurt and disappointments over not having a relationship with my maternal unit, my walk with God and how knowing Him has changed me and continues to help me grow into the person I strive to be......

    Interesting comment, especially the question of how forgiving or tolerant one should be. No easy answer.
