Braids of Life

I braid my hair
You braid your bread.

I use strawberry lipstick
You make strawberry jam

I wear cotton
You weave it from the thread.

I watch TV
You are a world stage

I live a life
You are a life

I am me and
You are the Apple of my eye.

A Lady's Life

There are only two ways to live your life.
One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as though everything is a miracle.
-- Albert Einstein

People are speculating now that we do have something to do with the UFO's which have been seen throughout time especially before or during disasters like tsunamis and volcano eruptions

One such UFO was seen during the Iceland eruption. Others were seens days before the eruptions in Alaska etc... Some ask are they here to help or to cause disasters killing over 200,000 people in one shot . They said it was an easy way of getting rid of the
unacceptable and the weak making more room for an advanced society, built genetically better than what they had before.

The Bible, they said, states man was created in Gods' image and so, as we do now with genetic
manipulation, maybe we were created as well before for no one knows how it is man came to be, to this very day.
They say it cannot be, that from cave dwelling, man suddenly jumped to building pyramids and that Leonardo da Vinci (and others like him), had such visions of submarines and arms we use to day, he drew on paper way back in his time when such things were inconceivable. Someone put those ideas into his head.

Maybe they got tired of man and wiped out most, with Noah, to leave 3000 throughout the world to begin again and maybe they are getting ready to do this again as the Mayan Calendar predicted
in Dec. 2012 to make room for a more perfect man. Some say man is already part alien and part human.

Throughout time, pictures of aliens and ships and battles have been drawn on cave walls suggesting that there might be a battle going on between good and bad angels.
and this is why God is supposed to come and once and for all end this battle so peace can reign.

I'd say we are in for some interesting times ahead but I am not so sure I want to see it.
I so I pray for the future generations.

My son said, you should not complain about kids and violence because it was your generation which did this. Your generation does dope, and promotes sex, and violence on TV. etc..

We promote freedom over above and beyond what is acceptable behavior and the kids are affected because we trample all over their world with our lobby and pressure groups ignoring the fact that they are entitled to a kids world. Its their human right.

Pretty soon it will be a human right freedom even to kill, because laws will not work anymore. As it is, they do not work. Laws are good only in so far as people want to and understand, that they are good for them and have good will to obey.

Today we punish our kids at home for things and then they see a person robs or vandalizes a store, then gets a lawyer to justify his reason to do so and gets off.

These are bad lessons for kids to learn. These are lessons teaching kids they do not have to obey because the law is not on their side. So many good families lose their kids to schools, pressure groups, friends, lobbyists and tv's... all different and immoral ideas and way of life etc...
people cannot defend their kids from.

No matter how much we try, there is someone who rocks the boat and destroys good things people worked hard to obtain, like freedom.

Every one seems to forget, that to have freedom is a privilege, an earned thing, not a guaranteed thing. To have freedom, requires a good, educated mind, devoid of brain cell destruction.
Freedom also has to work in tune with laws, every one agrees with because they understand that this is the right thing to do.

I was expressing my views as to why, his otherwise very nice school friend, my son grew up with, went and killed a nice girl he didn't know, for no reason.
What suddenly triggered this violence from him?

Now, although he pleaded guilty to First degree Murder, teachers will be asked to go to court to testify, I would assume on his behalf.
Out of all the rowdy boys from High School, he was the least expected to commit such a crime.
He never did anything bad and seemed to blend into the walls.

And of course I do not want to even touch upon how the other side feels except to say that all the grief you felt for the girls' family, balances out, when you see the behavior of the Father.

You automatically think the innocent daughter, paid with her life, through a random act of violence, for the sins of the Father. One always asks.. why this girl and not some other who did something bad? Those two kids were both innocents.

Did Laura's Dad learn anything? Well he said he hopes the other family now feels how he does losing a child, so no, I don't think so. The boys' family I know personally and so I know they are devastated. How would they not be? The Dad got the confession out of his son and he was the reason the police arrested the boy.

The girls' Father talks, as if the park his daughter was killed in, belongs to him and he will sit and wait for people with bats there. This is trouble waiting to happen because the park is a baseball park as well as football and soccer.
Of course no one believes he will do it.
It was just grief talking but it sure speaks a lot about our society.
Violence begets violence. Every one wishes the worst things to happen to this boy in jail.
And now that he's done this, can he ever be trusted to be free in this world?
His life is over.

So to keep hope and balance in the world, we only have a merciful God to depend on and his teachings of love and forgiveness to prevail.
With each day that passes, I find people need to pay attention so as to make it easier and nicer for our children to grow. Laws and government can't do this because these are personal issues.
We are adults and we are here to teach our children through example.
Regardless of human rights and freedom, I believe every adult knows what the right and wrong thing to do is and if he doesn't, he should be taught.

This is the kind of quality time I have with my children.lol This is why parents have to be there to explain things as they crop up.
It's always a push and pull and I'd like to think that so far, my husband and I are winning :)


The throw above was so easy to finish. I already had the middle green part done with my knitting machine, which took no time at all.
So I only worked on the edging and sewed on the light green chain all around for contrast.

I made it so it could be used as a shawl as well as a throw since the edging can be turned over for those cold mornings sitting by the computer lol
Its quite long as you can see so it covers all body sizes.
Being chilly all the time, I like to have these things hanging around to wrap up in and so do my guys when they watch TV or sitting in the car.
Now I had enough of knitting and will put everything away for a while.


How does the queen bee fix her hair? She uses a honey comb!

Three year old son Scott had thin fly-away hair, so his mother often wet it to comb it into place. One morning as she applied water and slicked his hair back , she announced it was time for him to get another haircut. "Mom." Scott replied, "If you'd quit watering it so much, it wouldn't grow so fast!"
A man was driving along the highway, and saw a rabbit hopping across the middle of the road. He swerved to avoid hitting the rabbit, but unfortunately the rabbit jumped in front of the car and was hit. The driver, being a sensitive man as well as an animal lover, pulled over to the side of the road, and got out to see what had become of the rabbit. Much to his dismay, the rabbit was dead. The driver felt so awful, he began to cry. A woman driving down the highway saw the man crying on the side of the road and pulled over. She stepped out of her car and asked the man what was wrong. "I feel terrible," he explained, "I accidentally hit this rabbit and killed it." The woman told the man not to worry. She knew what to do. She went to her car trunk, and pulled out a spray can. She walked over to the limp, dead rabbit, and sprayed the contents of the can onto the rabbit. Miraculously the rabbit came to life, jumped up, waved its paw at the two humans and hopped down the road. 50 yards away the rabbit stopped, turned around, waved and hopped down the road, another 50 yards, turned, waved and hopped another 50 yards. The man was astonished. He couldn't figure out what substance could be in the woman's spray can!! He ran over to the woman and asked, "What is in your spray can? What did you spray on that rabbit?"
The woman turned the can around so that the man could read the label. It said: "Hair spray. Restores life to dead hair and adds a permanent wave."

May you all ride the big wave, feel the breeze and breathe the salty air of life.

Lots in common then! :)

Akelamalu - One son is married with his own family and the other is 18 so he is almost an adult. But the young children are still growing and our newspapers are full of things they are doing.Our town never had such things before and now we hear of 14 - 15 year old kids stabbing each other etc....These are signs that things are not as they should be. We as a society, are doing something wrong.

Toyin O. said...

I could not agree with you more on how the moral fiber of our society is rapidly decaying, especially with the young people, we have to keep praying:)

A Lady's Life said...

Thanks Toyin :)

George said...

You've certainly given us a great deal to think about in this post. I'm glad my children are grown, but I do worry about them and my grandchildren. We definitely seem to have lost our way as a society.

A Lady's Life said...

George: I agree. Society is being changed, corrupted by people who want their way of life accepted as ok.
The more you say ok the more demands they make.
TV should show more nice family movies as opposed to violence. There seems to be no balance Its all horror and violence putting ideas into peoples' heads they would not normally have. The same with video games and music and bad language.
We never had bad language in my house and now my kids walk around rapping just bad words as if this is normal and it's not.
So I am vocal about it because I don;t like it. lol
