Filling the world.

Hi there,

I was just reading a daily devotional, one of many I read throughout the day. This one hit hard. Why? This year I lost my 27 year old in an unexpected and rather sudden death, November 12, 2014, his name Dustin Kamon.

Filling the world, He lies in a manger! 
Augustine

I started thinking about this quote. "Filling the world." If Mary the mother of Jesus knew her child was born to for-fill the prophesy did she at any time think of it as filling the world? 

Does any big preacher think of himself as being born to fill the world? Do any of their mothers (preacher mother) think of their child as being born to for-fill the world? I say No! 

A mothers heart in this case would be different than a mans. The thought of a baby, being responsible for the world just hours old is an overwhelming thought. Having experienced losing a child is knowing that I was only blessed with his presences for a time, twenty-seven years to be exact. It was a short time in today's lifespan. Twenty-seven years. Jesus himself lived longer. Do you think I would have chosen this for my "son". Do sons get persecuted just because they are
born? Male? Called "son"? And their mom believes in the bible and bible study?



Who is to judge why things happen the way they do? I just know that if I would have known that his life span was so short I would have spent my life trying to stop it from happening. Now, when I think of Mary, I don't see her as an overprotective mother. She lets Jesus do what he needs to do. She does take care of him, part of that is allowing him to mature. She didn't always like the choices he made, arguing with him, even in public.

I do believe in today's world we do have to protect our children more than in the time of Jesus. The times are different. What I do know is because we understand more, we expect more. Therefore, we act in a manner that is appropriate to our lifestyle. Mary had some pretty difficult circumstances. When we look at it through our modern world it seems impossible. The truth is if Mary came into our world today, would she think that our lives were more or less difficult than hers? Augustine quote imply  it was known the world was given to an infant. At the moment of birth the baby carried the world.

Could Mary of the bible cope with Modernism,  Abuse, and today's poverty? Would she be fired into unemployment? Hunger? Pocerty? Was Mary really poor? Was she
Employed? I believe all the woman in the bible were employed. Maybe it wasn't called that, they has specific jobs to do!

 Would Mary today make the choice to have Jesus be born? With medical advances and technology being what it is, would she have made the same choice?  If, so would she let him live out that life or would she use every thing she could to influence him? To try to stop it? I ask my own self, if I thought Dustin was "Jesus Christ" would I have chosen to give birth to Him? The answer is: I don't know. That kind of knowledge is overwhelming and I thank, my God and Lord I didn't have it! For it is only Him, that can carry that responsibly. Praise, Him it's all written down for use to understand.

Ron's Meat Sauce for Pasta

Hi there Diamond Glamour Girls;

Here is a sauce recipe I have used for many years. No, I didn't name it. It was the name it came from. I'd give credit to the person who shared it with me years ago, however I didn't write it down on the recipe card.

Pasta: This is a good hearty sauce for any pasta, although it may overpower the light pastas such as angel hair.

1/4 Cup Olive Oil
1 lb Very Lean Ground Beef
1/4 Cup Chopped Onions
1/4 Cup Green Peppers, Dice
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Oregano
1 1/2 Cups Prepared Pasta Sauce - such as Prego
1/4 Cup Red Wine (optional)
Parmesan Cheese (optional)
Minced Parsley

Sauté onions and green peppers in olive oil, brown hamburger then add salt, oregano,and prepared pasta sauce. If desired add red wine. Top with Parmesan cheese and garnish with mined parsley.

Copy Pasta

Hi there, Diamond Glamour Girls;

Here is a recipe I came up with for rose who are signal. Don't want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Have to eat, you have to survive. Get home from work and the last thing you want to do is go to a Resturant or bar and eat dinner.



Pasta for on. At your local grocery store the sale pasta for one! Little one serving packages of pasta. They are perfect for a single serving or two depending on your appetite. I find trying to live a balance life as a signal it's best to add a salad and vegetables, this was this fast food pasta isn't so fast.

Ingredients:

1 can of chili (without beans although you can use with beans it taste better without. Still working in which brand I like beat right now it's Hormel) Read the label make sure it's healthy, 

1 bag of Pasta (LA Moderna) 

1. Boil water add salt and a drop of oil.

2. Add pasta let it cook for about 5-10 minutes.

3. Make your salad and vegetables. Plate it.

4. Open the can of chili. Follow cooking directions on the can.

5. Drain pasta. Plate it.

6. Place chili on top of pasta.

7. Add cheese of choice. (Cheddar taste better than Parmesan with this recipe. However, I personally will keep experimenting until I find the right one.)

Hope you enjoy my pasta recipe.

What I say!

Hi there, Diamond Glamour Girls,

How many times have I looked at someone and thought one thing and said another. How many times have I wanted
From the person I was with. Maybe it wasn't for things. Maybe it wasn't for money. Maybe it was just that I needed compassion from the person. Understanding or just a hug. My child died this year and I had to listen to the men that had cursed tell me how great he was. I had to hear the same men pray to the God I pray to after telling me what a terrible mom I was.

With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so.
James 3:9-10 NKJV

This scripture came to mind. I know we make mistakes. We are sinners saved by grace. Grace, beautiful, wonderful grace. To know Gods grace is to fall in love with His word. 

What does a woman say when she losses a child. Other than help me God. Forgive me God, I must have really I sinned. If I really thought that way then I would not believe in grace. I don't know how I will live the rest of my life. He was suppose to have a few years without me constantly watching him so he could mature into the young man you wanted.

Now, I am left here knowing that the grace that I showed others was not enough, the prayers I said were not enough, the love I gave was not enough, the lessons I taught was not enough, the grace you have was not enough. He left earth November 12, 2014.

Do I curse now? Is it okay? Will I be justified, if I show you I am angry, hurt, upset? Is this what you wanted me to learn? Your anger? Should I be angry? How angry do I have to get. Psalm 77 I was studding and asked a friend to help me study when it hit. 

Does studying your word come with such a big price? Then no one would study it. Does asking someone to help you, mean you lose the word you understand? How can I explain to you my feelings? Although your word clearly explains how we are to deal with emotions. 

I could get angry at God, then I am less of a woman. If God thought I should have this then He would also give me an understanding and equip me with the power to deal with it and the financial resources. My God is not only able he is willing. Then why does man curse you with their tongue and praise you with it too. It's like the sex addict or the alcoholic who says to his wife "I'm not having an affair", "I'm not an alcoholic." then the neighbor catches him take pictures show it to the wife and its denied. Or the alcoholic that tell the congestion they quit and people see him at the local brewery. They speak what the person wants to hear. Is it your truth?

Is your anger mean or is it like the "Father, who corrects his child with his word, in love." My father never spanked me. I learned young His word was enough. His word was enough. Again I ask why does men do that? Speak with and curse with?

Today's Post Brought to You by the Letter "N"

Hi there,  Diamond Glamour Girls;

How great is life when as a former teacher you start remembering your youth and talking with someone about your youth. I have an family member who always want to be the letter "N". I remember in my high school days, I found a friend with the name "Nancy" so I could just be myself.

I want mentality that has nothing to do with me personally. Her daughter always wanted and for some reason my mom always throws me first. I am the first to defend her. Why? I have not a clue, I have a older sister who she claims is perfect.

Silly thoughts of youth, bring venting blog of today! What does this have to do with anything. Absolutely nothing. I honestly don't like to vent.... I prefer a quite and peaceable life. Here is the truth after suffering the loss of your child at age twenty seven, there is not much to say. Life has suck up the thoughts of oneself and placed an imposer in its places.

One that wants also, they want life, and you to suffer for it crying and complaining about how unjust life is. I decided, I don't want to be like that. I don't want to be a complainer, I want to accept it as the will of God.

Here are things I associate with the letter "N".

Hope in 2020!
