my toe hurts

NOVEMBER 25TH I BROKE MY TOE. SO VERY LITTLE DID I KNOW HOW MUCH PAIN IS INVOLVED WITH SUCH AN ORDEAL. AND OF COURSE RIGHT BEFORE THE HOLIDAYS. AND I GUESS YOU KNOW WHAT I GOT FOR CHRISTMAS; LORTABS. SO I AM HOME AND TRYING TO RECOVER AND I HAVE DISCOVERED HOW BORED I CAN BE WITH TELEVISION. SO I HAVE BEEN INCONTACT WITH FOLKS I HAVEN'T TALKED WITH IN AWHILE AND AT LEAST THAT IS GOOD. I ALSO HAVE BEEN WRITING NEW SONGS FOR HAMBY & SWAGGERTY TO PERFORM, THAT IS DEFINITELY A POSITIVE. WILL GO NOW AND TAKE MY NEXT DOSE OF LORTABS, I MUST STAY OFF MY FEET AND THE BEST WAY I KNOW IS TO BE IN LA-LA LAND. TALK AGAIN SOON.

fear

hamby & swaggertythis past week an evangelist that pastors a 14,000 member church and head of an organization with 30 million members was accused of drug use and paying a man for sex. Of course @ first the man denied he did anything and then he bought the drugs and then of course he admitted he was guilty of 'sexual immorality'. However the real danger and the real horror is FEAR. this man may have committed adultery on his wife and no one benefits from the use of drugs, but this man is a man, a human, who, like all of us have sinned and come short of what God wants us to be. the real sin this man is guilty of is the weapon of fear he used to discriminate and harm other people for their open-ness to their sexual orientation, calling for discrimination to be written in the constitution. Oh ye hypocrites! when the religious right finally discovers they are the religious sinners saved by grace and not by works of which they DO boost, they will only then know the grace of God is so real. Jesus said that he who was forgiven much, loveth much. Again we should not judge this man for his sin, we should look inward and say except for the grace of God go I. This man reminds me of saul who saw to the distruction of christians and then on the Damascus road met up with Jesus and his life was turned around. maybe Ted haggard has found his Damascus road and will no longer use hate and fear to destroy and manipulate others, maybe he'll learn to love agape style.

rainy day in tennessee

it has been a rainy day all day and more to come in from the southwest tommorrow.
but what a great day to just relax and eat some good home-made chili.
i have added a super dog to my home- a great pyrenes i call tyson. tyson is an awesome dog 2 years old and gorgeous.
and what an awesome watchdog.
lucy- my bulldog- just does not know quite what to make of him yet as she is jealous and territorial. she is an old lady after all- 11 years old.
they are going to be alright together. wouldn't it be healthy if the divided kingdom of god could get along as well as the animal kingdom. talk again soon.

why are the christians so angry?

i am a christian- right away and up front that needs to be stated. however, i have noticed so much hate and unforgiveness coming out of the church lately that it is no wonder that the churches of america are losing ground and membership shrinking. we are the salt of the earth and if we have lost our flava how will the earth be salted? should the face of christianity be adorned with a scowl?? Jesus said the world would know we loved him by showing love to one another, not just those who agree with our political position, Jesus even said if you we only love the ones who love us and agree with us we have done nothing. i admit i get a little ruffled when the ones who profess their morality to be superior throw their crowns at the feet of hate-mongers and do it in the name of Jesus. i am pretty sure Jesus has nothing to do with some of the self-righteous nonsense that comes out of christiandom. we need to be followers of christ and let him do the leading, not our self righteousness. our righteous is nothing but filthy rags to god. talk again soon.

bad renters

been having troubles with some bad renters. the new renters are ready to move in and the old tenents left the place in a mess, they have 2 dogs and their dogs are monster dogs who are unruly and the owners are not trying to control their animals. now we have a lot of repair to do before the new renters can even move in. I have a great dog myself but she is behaved and i highly recommend bulldogs, Lucy is 11 years old and she is by far the best dog i have ever had, i have owned her for the past 10 years. lucy would never destroy someone else's property. dogs are man's best friend, at least my dog is. talk again soon.
