how feminism destroyed America

The United States of America

it truly had the potential to be the greatest nation on earth.

under God.


but then something happened.  history repeated itself as it has from the very beginning.

in the beginning, God gave us a perfect paradise to live in with Him.
but He gave us a line that we were not to cross.  we were warned.

don't. eat. the. apple.
you will surely die.

the woman was deceived.  she disobeyed.  the man did not lead.  he went along.
eden was no longer possible.  our relationship with our God was changed.

fast forward to america.  struggling nation.  God fearing, God loving, the majority identifying
as christians--followers of Christ.

then we do it again.
the woman is deceived all over again.  she believes the lie that she can do whatever she pleases in this life...........

even kill her own offspring.

and the man doesn't lead.  doesn't protect.  he goes along.  encourages.
why not?  sex with no strings attached!!!!  woohoo!

this way of life
this fornicating and killing.
it leads people further and further away from their God.

to this time.
when the majority of americans still identify as christians---but they do not follow Christ.

God will not be mocked.
because of our collective evil ways He will not protect us. we will be exiled from His goodness in this world.  we will be taken captive.

all because the woman believed the lie.

here lies the United States of America:  killed by feminism

what is the truth?

men and women are equal in God's eyes.  but the world's eyes are different
the world's eyes are full of lust and lies.

women are now used and abused more than ever before in history, and they are deceived.  they don't even realize this freedom they have is the real bondage.

they have believed the lie that motherhood, home keeping, and marriage are just meant to enslave them.
women are left unprotected because they have stepped out from under the God designed model of accountability and protection.
they give it all away so they can be "equal"

they kill their offspring and think they have gotten away with murder.
but they haven't.  they will suffer in anguish forever.

and because of the horrific practice of abortion; state sanctioned murder of our most innocent and vulnerable citizens, we have all stepped out from under the protection of our God.

their silent screams are heard

their mothers killed them.  their father's did not save them.

and their lives did matter.

more than all others.

God's promises
they are hidden in plain view
no matter how the nations rage
and the world descends into turmoil

God. has. this.

my reading this morning
matthew 21:33-46
parable of the evil farmers

it spoke to me
in this time of trying to make sense
of terror attacks

it told me that we should never back down in proclaiming

that Jesus Christ is the Cornerstone.

of our nation, of our church, of our lives.

it promises me that all who "stumble" on this cornerstone WILL BE brought to ruin.

i can say what i believe no other way.

Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to God and the Kingdom of God belongs only to those who trust in Jesus.

lets ramble on......

i really want to blog more.  its not that i don't have anything to say.  i have lots to say.  some of it a lot of people don't want to hear.

i'm a square peg that doesn't even try to fit into a round hole.  screw it.

get it?

my mind works in mysterious ways.......

i can't think of anything i've been thinking about blogging about.  i need one of those little mini voice recorders so i can talk to myself.  i think of topics and usually its when i'm not near a pen paper.  i've got notes in my phone.  but my phone is way over.....


so i'm just going to ramble for today.

i'm going to tell you a little about my hopes and dreams for this day (since its just 8:19 am)

i woke up at 5:30 this morning.  the time change has me off a bit.  i want to go with it.  i accomplish so much more when i get up really early.  i've been a lazy butt in the mornings lately.   it's jeff's fault.

did my bible study.  i'm in matthew 20: 1-16.  it's not about senority or time invested:  it's about God's grace.  that's it.  He is the boss and He can do whatever He wants, who are we to question God?

went on facebook for a bit....tried not to tick anyone off.  that is hard for me.  bite your tongue, karen.

cleaned up bubby's hideout.  thats what i'm calling my craft room now.  i'm a messy doer.  eventually you can't think amongst the mess, so you have to just DO IT!!!

i discovered that i could plug my kindle into the little tiny speakers the kids left behind when they all abandoned me (got married and moved out).  now i can listen to my music on pandora a lot louder down there in bubbys hideout.

i've had my second cup of coffee and breakfast.  for anyone that is interested breakfast was two whole grain toast with cottage cheese and homemade cranberry preserves.  yum!

now.....onto plans for the whole big rest of the day.
clean and straighten
at least one hour of outdoor cleanup (garage, compost, or garden)
at least two hours of wood cutting and brush piling
grocery list
no cooking (leftovers for dinner) yes!!!!!!!!!!!!
working on november activities for ethan.

i'm going to remember this:  in all things i do i will try to glorify God.  in my thoughts, actions, deeds, words...everything i do.
i will fail.....God knows this.  And He loves me.  and He helps me.  And He won't let me just be.  He won't let me continue to fail.  He will help me over and over and over again.  Because He is just that awesome of a Father.


i will try to think of some really interesting topics because i seriously would like to blog more often.
thanks for listening to me ramble.

no exceptions

all of the hoopla surrounding abortion is about the selling of the baby parts and pieces.

i know it is a foot in the door for the pro-life movement because now the attention is really on this horror that seems to have become our national past time.  well, second national past time with sex obviously being the first.  the third probably has something to do with sports.

but i digress......

whether the murdered babies are being sold, donated, buried or burned really makes no difference in light of the fact that THEY ARE BEING KILLED----THEIR BEATING HEARTS ARE BEING FORCEFULLY STOPPED!!!

let the lawyers wrangle and argue over the "legalities"  i don't care about what the government or suzy q on the street corner thinks.  wrong is wrong is wrong.

and abortion is WRONG.

i am pro-life in all instances concerning abortion.  concerning the taking of innocent life.


in the case of rape or incest, which by the way it amuses me the way its always mentioned separately,  pretty much incest is rape. anyway.....healing will never take place by committing murder.  the baby that is sometimes produced in such cases DID NOTHING WRONG and does not deserve to die.

i've heard talk of late term abortion (shudder) being okay in instances of the life of the mother being at stake.  we are talking about very rare cases indeed, maybe toxemia being one of the most common. i had toxemia.  DELIVER THE FREAKING BABY!!!!  that is a bogus arguement.  DELIVER THE FREAKING BABY!!  LET IT HAVE A CHANCE AT LIFE.

the truth here is that it is really just about getting rid of the inconvenience of a baby.  a life.

another popular arguement is to abort, ahem! MURDER your child in the case of deformity or possible intellectual and physical disabilities.  this is always promoted as being in the best interest of the child.  really?  kill me now.  i have no potential.  i'm not perfect like my mother.

i know that there are many christians who say they are pro-life but condone murdering innocent babies in these cases i've mentioned.

YOU ARE WRONG.  and God is watching.

step one

step one

these are the 20 week ultrasound pictures of my five precious grandsons
i've always kept them on the table next to my bed.
i've moved them to a shelf in the livingroom where i will see them all day long.
and where everyone who comes into my home will see them.  
i've printed out and framed this prayer

this is step one.

watching a video of a pastor preaching about abortion
he said these undercover videos of planned parenthood employees talking about selling dead baby parts  ......had undone him..........
i'm undone too.  saying i'm prolife is no longer enough. just wearing a tee shirt with a logo is not enough.  i have never done enough.  i have never prayed enough.  i have never spoken out enough.
55 million dead babies since roe v wade.  not to mention the one who died before.
if thats not bad enough.....if killing your child is not bad enough.....dealing in dead baby parts....
i'm rambling
my thoughts are all over the place, but my focus right now is going to be on prayers.
God is showing me that i can't be silent.  i know that. i've been silent too long.  
55 million.  just think about that............
some of those 55 million are family members.  and i was silent.   
i don't yet know what i'm going to do.  
people have been praying, protesting, loving
and yet 55 million dead  and no remorse.

*disclaimer for anyone who is wondering:  i have never had an abortion and when i say family i am referring to my extended family, not my children.

stop the slaughter

i know someone who had a late term abortion.

i don't blame her.  i blame those who suggested it and insisted on it being the only option.
i blame it on those who are part of the generation of liberation and ignorance.

i'm grateful for the fact that i was conceived and born before Roe v Wade.
otherwise i'm pretty sure there would be a significant chance that i would not be here to write this.

this is sad.

there is mercy and forgiveness for those who repent of their actions.
but there is no mercy or forgiveness for those who continue with the lies and deception of what is really going on here.
to take pride in the taking of an innocent life is the ultimate in depravity.
it's not "tissue"
its a human being with a beating heart.

i have been guilty of turning my head and looking the other way.
saying that i am pro-life is just lip service.
they are just words.
what do i do to show it?
i've never been tested by this.
life is wonderful in my little bubble world.

i can't save the world.
but can i save just one baby?
can i be more than just about words?

i know that the number one thing i am called to do is to pray.
nothing is more important than calling on God and seeking His will and His wisdom.

this is a good beginning.
a starting point.

there are other ideas and/or habits i've been kicking around.
i'll share them here when i get some solid plan.

all i know right now is that i was angry.
then i was sad.
and now i'm angry, sad, and determined.

i'm embarrassed to say that it took news of an abortion mill selling baby parts to wake me up.
but i'm awake now and i'm promising not to sleep again.

ignorant bliss

i'm a thinker.  i think too much.
things have to make sense to me.
i try to think about things until i can figure out how they make some any way....
sometimes it's such a stretch.
to try to figure out how someone else could possible even think that something makes sense.

are you still following me?

all of this thinking is getting to be too much for my brain.
the world has truly gone mad.....or has it?
.....maybe i'm the one who has gone mad?  some days.....
it feels that way.

at this point in time i feel overwhelmed by the world.
the entire freaking world that sits right the end of my driveway.
sometimes i feel like i want to just stockpile food and quit my job, cancel the tv and internet and in ignorant bliss for a while.
i really, really, really could do this!!!

but!  is that being realistic?  no....probably not.
could i just pick one or two of those things off of that list and do those???

the fact of the matter is this:  would burying my head in the sand save just ONE baby from being violently ripped from its mothers womb?  would it convince just ONE person to seek Jesus and not be a slave to sin?  would it do anyone any good?  including myself?

there are too many voices out there leading people astray.  there are too many Christians out there who are silent on the topics of sin and repentance.  they want to just say "my job is to love and God's job is to judge"................
do we really want to just love people all the way to HELL???????

no one wants to offend.  no one wants to "judge"  no one wants to be that lone voice.
but i do.  i don't know why, but i do.

you see, there are these boys.  and i hate the world they must grow up in.  this world is dangerous, deceitful, and sinful.  the weight of feeling responsible for passing on God's word, teaching them to have a biblical worldview, and showing them how to live a godly life, well, it weighs heavy on me.
extremely heavy.  it seems to be so daunting of a task. my heart aches to think of any of them being led astray because we dropped the ball.  because we didn't want to offend.  because we didn't want to be different.

 because we wanted an easier life lived in ignorant bliss.........................
