you labeled me, i label you, so i dub thee unforgiven

ever get to the end of a week and wonder why it seemed to last a month? that's how last week was for me. we made 2 whirlwind trips to and from to get more stuff. i have a question for the few of you that read. how do you handle when your religion is attacked or better yet when it is questioned/thrown in your face. this has happened to me a few times and it usually involves somebody thinking they are somehow owed something because i am a christian. hmmm, not sure when in the bible it says "thou shalt be a doormat", but i could be wrong. anywho, i had this long tirade of a blog typed out about forgiveness, but decided to take the high road instead. trust me it was a very.... biting blog. instead i think that i would like to play the alphabet game. I've seen it in various forms here and here. i hope to upload pics tomorrow for the letter b, but we'll see what tomorrow brings.

some things that i like that start with A

amigurumis- they are cute, and i love to make them. couldn't find a pic of the ones I've made, so i will have to make more and take pics.

antics- you know the kinds kiddos have when they are having fun.

apples- i ordered a fruit and walnut salad at mc d's and the kids ate it all. princess and q ate the grapes then the apples, monkey devoured the walnuts and finch ate the yogurt. q kept asking for more apples please. the princess always asks for apples with her happy meals, i blame the caramel dip.

angels- my kiddos are truly the angels i see on earth every day. not that they always behave like angels mind you.

answers- i like to know why things are the way they are and why people do what they do. i don't always like the answers, but I'm always glad to know.

for those who know me in real life my oldest, known here as monkey, her name starts with A

agua- is it cheating to use a different language? oh well, loving me some ice cold agua during this unbearably hot summer.

my darling second daughter, known here as the princess, also sports a name that starts with A

this was fun, and so much happier than the other post that i had typed. thanks for the support.

It is so hard when you are attacked for what you believe. I understand because it has happened to me. Being a Christian, I think all Christians are attacked. It is part of being what we are.

I usually respond by being as gentle as I can to the person. There is only one way through it and that is understanding. They know not what they do...

thanks, after much discussion the hubby and i agreed that seperation may be the only solution to the current issue.

been there & done that so many times with my family especially attacking me for my beliefs....and something I learned the hard way is exactly what you are doing right now.....putting healthy boundaries between me & whomever it is that is attacking me & or my core beliefs. Love you & will keep this tucked away in my heart to pray for!!

thanks mzzterry, this has been such a tough decision to come to, but after much prayer and discussion i feel it is our only option. thanks for the prayers, i can always use tons of them
