Called into being

Today is the last day of this year - for me, as tomorrow is my birthday. Actually, if I were in Australia, today would be my birthday. I will force myself to celebrate the day that I entered this world, because for so long I have not really thought much about birthdays. That doesn't mean I have to go out for dinner or anything, I will just remember to be in awe that the Creator called me into being for a specific purpose and I will celebrate life as a tribute to the Creator - because He doesn't make mistakes.

So far today I have had to confront my limitations as a perfectionist, thanks to a very insightful blog post by Meg on perfectionism... (Perfectionists Anonymous)

Funny how the universe sends you what you need sometimes. I needed to re-evaluate my recovery process, which is ever constant, and to focus on helping my daughter who has the same tendency.

Then I read Mel's post which asked
What is your idea of God? Do you believe that there is a God who created everything and who watches over all His creations? How do you relate to Him?
(Do You Believe In God?)

I haven't answered that one yet, because it is difficult to express my answer with just a few words. Actually, I am rarely a person of few words, at least when it comes to writing them down.

I am thankful to have found these two posts today, a fitting reminder to "think" and not just exist. This new year will be my best year yet, I'm sure of it. I have much to be thankful for and I look forward to experiencing all that God has for me.

I will learn to ask, then seek the answer, and then knock on the door so that I may enter into the blessing. Previously, I thought that any one of these things was all I needed to do, but lately I have come to realize that you must do all three things: ask, seek, knock.

Luke 11:9-10 and I say to you, Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened to you; for every one who is asking doth receive; and he who is seeking doth find; and to him who is knocking it shall be opened.

God bless and have a great June 9th!

Spitzer uses friend's name to register motel rooms

Poor Mr. Fox, Mr. George Fox that is, who is now known for renting motel rooms with hookers, and formerly Gov. Spitzer's friend.

I say formerly because it appears that the good governor was using his name (George Fox) to reserve motel rooms where he was meeting with his very expensive prostitute.

And another "great" politician bites the dust...

Mr. Spitzer was elected in a landslide in 2006, capitalizing on his popularity he won as the “Sheriff of Wall Street” during eight years as attorney general. With a reputation for personal probity and independence, he pledged to bring higher ethical standards to the statehouse.

The more good you do, the more evil tries to embrace you.

Beware, even democrats can fall prey.

Sad that his legacy will just be one of another hypocrite because his true character was one of just rising to the top of his game and not the integrity he falsely showed to the public.

Homemade Mosquito Repellent

The Zika virus carried by mosquitoes has become a hot topic and is the basis for many unwarranted fears for most people in the United States. While it is a dangerous virus that can be sexually transmitted (one reported in S.C.), here in the US, it only affects about 1000 people per year.

As of August 18, 2016, there are 34 known cases of Zika virus in South Carolina.

* So far president Obama has asked congress for $1.9 billion to help develop a Zika* The White House also is seeking flexibility to use some of its unspent funding for the Ebola crisis to respond to Zika or other infectious diseases.

Each state should also provide information. The link for South Carolina is, which provides useful information on symptoms, transmission and prevention.

How the Rich and Famous are Voting

This election year has been one of the most interesting, and most controversial election years of my life. The politicians and their supporters are confused, angry, and sometimes downright ignorant. The lies and accusations are tossed around easier than a salad.

This political circus has served to inspire many questions for me, not all of which serve a great purpose - such as this one.

Then again, it wasn't that long ago that a movie star was elected president.

How are the rich and famous voting? I found endless resources for celebrity supporters of Hillary, but those supporting Trump are apparently not as vocal about their choice.
