Look what happened to SCROOGE!

SYW and the question are:

What’s your remedy for the Holiday blues?

Your favorite beverage (if it differs) during the holiday season?  If it doesn’t differ, just answer the ‘what’s your favorite beverage” part. 

This one has been asked before, but what’s your take on pumpkin spice?

Is there is a person or god connected with your holiday? 

  • Who are they and do you believe in them?
  • If you do not believe in these people or gods, does the celebration/honoring of that being, bother you in any way (e.g., ignored, dismissed, angry, etc.)?

Holiday blues, what is that?

My favorite beverage is, if thirsty I like water if eating pasta I enjoy a glass of Arbor Mist, Zinfandel!

Pumpkin Spice, sure, why not?

God?  My take on that  –>  The past few evenings, I have been tuning in to a few classic Christmas movies; hymns and notice the joy just the word “Christmas” brings. The word means Christ’s Mass on Christmas Day. Such a compelling Holy/Holiday, the unbelievers will never get rid of the word Christmas. Not sure why “unbelievers” are called unbelievers since they, too, believe; they decorate, celebrate as we all do in their way. At least the ones I know, even the stores, streets, homes, everything.

Look what happened to SCROOGE!

Notice that there is currently a move to change the wording of the Christmas parade to Winder parade, it might work for a short time, but the Christmas parade will return just like when they tried to change Christmas trees to Holiday trees, most stores again refer to them as Christmas trees.  It is what it is, CHRISTMAS!

It doesn’t sound correct to even say, Merry Winter everyone!  ♫

Sharing My World — SYW

SYW Share Your World and the questions are below; with my answers.  Nice to know that someone wants to know what I think.  I love it!

  1. Can we ever experience anything objectively? Why or why not? (Now for the people who may not understand that idea, this is what objective means (definition wise): Something that is not influenced by personal feelings or opinions).

If no, there is no anything as Truth or Facts, just whatever pleases man, like we have today. 

  1. Do humans have a soul? Do animals have a soul?

Humans have an immortal soul that will live forever either in Heaven or Hell at the end of time; Animals have a mortal soul that dies when they die. However, I like to believe that nothing on earth is more significant than what is in Heaven, therefore perhaps animals are in Heaven, hopefully for those who make it to Heaven God will allow our pets to be there, wishful thinking on my part. 

  1. Why are people told to respect the dead? (example: “Don’t speak ill of the dead”)

Because God has already judged them.

  1. Without using the names of specific people, discuss “the ideal” President or other world leader.  Saying ‘anyone who is the exact opposite of a certain orange skinned creature’ is cheating. While (to me) that’s a true statement, there’s more depth to the question than to reduce it to one sentence.

An ideal leader, in my opinion, is anyone who keeps or at least TRIES to keep the ten Commandments, since if that should ever happen, we will be blessed by God and have peace throughout the entire world. Not just talk about it but encourage it. We don’t live in a perfect world, and my ideal is a dream, so I will continue to vote for the lesser of the two evils.

Sharing! and do we really care?

Share Your World wants to know!

The prompt from this blogger to Share Our World; the form of questions to answer which are: 

  1. What is the meaning of true love?
  2. Do acts of kindness have a motive? 
  3. If we live in a civilized world why do we see so many distinctions between rich and poor?
  4. Do we love ourselves more in the virtual world than in the real world?

 Number one: The meaning of True Love is to serve when we serve our love grows deeper. Serving each other in marriage will always be a success; this is why a mother loves her children, she serves them from the beginning of their life. 

Number two: If your acts of kindness are done only to boost your reputation (for example, the politician) WRONG! Acts of kindness should always be done for the sake of God, not to feed your ego. 

Number three: Because people have different opportunities, choices and we are not robots, the poor will always be with us, it is written.

Number four: The virtual world is to me what I am aiming for, my goal, the real world is what I am. We are called to love our neighbor as ourselves. Therefore we are called to love ourselves.

Questions with Answers … thoughts

My SYW POST for Share Your World
The questions with answers

Why do we seem to respect the dead more than the living?
I believe it is because after a person has died, we see all that was good in them, whatever deeds in life negative, forgotten.
The goal for all; to save our immortal souls, there is a life beyond this life! We respect the dead because we have hope that they died in God’s grace and have achieved their goal.

Why is beauty associated with morality? Or not?
Having physical beauty is a grave temptation, and especially today, many are weak and fall for the superficial comments they hear from others. A beautiful woman attracts attention, and often it is attention from the wrong person. Mothers train your daughters to be humble, modest, and ladylike.

Have gadgets and apps taken away emotions?
I think the emotions wrought from gadgets are different; they are there but not as genuine as natural emotions.

Is there a perfect life? What’s your version of an ideal experience if you care to share? A perfect life is doing the Will of God for that is the only possibility that will bring you happiness and peace of mind. Many will say; what is the Will of God? Begin with knowing the Ten Commandments and pray daily for the grace of discernment. “Ask, and you shall receive.” Most importantly, when we experience the failures, disappointments we should unite them with the life of Christ, that always helps.
The perfect life is if we save our soul, there is only one tragedy in life, that is when we lose our soul. If you put popularity ahead of God’s Will you are heading in the wrong direction, most of the time the majority is on the wrong side. Human respect is an evil.

“Human respect is excessive regard for the opinions or esteem of other men. … Concern for the opinion of others may lead one to act against moral principles and thus to do evil in order to gain the esteem of others.”

I am grateful always when I look back at my life, (now aged 79) my digresses straying away from God, offending Him, my mortal sins, still He kept me from dying in my sins. I was led out of my Faith, into a conciliar form of religion. Ecumenical in nature, forgetting the First Commandment, everything I learned was put on the back burner.
I am grateful I finally found my home again, the Traditional Faith.

Thank you SYW for the opportunity to share!

My Truth and One Meatball song

 

    Thanks to Melanie B Cee for the inspiration, questions/prompt

She asks

If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? If you don’t think Heaven nor God exists, you might want to answer by saying something outrageous, just for fun!
Anyone reading my posts here knows that I believe that God exists along with Heaven, Hell, Limbo, and Purgatory.   After “time” is no longer, I think that there will only be Heaven and Hell. If I should be so graced, I imagine St. Peter might say; “you had us worried a few times, but you made it.’

The lowest depth of misery would be if I don’t make it; spending eternity among others surrounded by hate, since there is no love in Hell, whatsoever.

What do you think about when you’re alone in your car?
Arriving at my destination without causing an accident, and that’s the truth.

How would you rate your memory?
For my age, I think my memory is about average, except when I can’t find where I put my keys. It always happens when I am in a hurry.

What’s one song that always cheers you up, no matter how blue you’re feeling? 

I have two of them guaranteed to make you smile.  Hope you will give a listen, your kids if you have any at home will also LOL!

Who, Me!

Share your World wants to know; and who doesn’t like to write about oneself every once in a while.

Five questions you can read here:

My answers below:

Didn’t have to think too long on this first question. Honestly can’t remember when I might have been offended personally. I say personally directed at me, myself and I. Having said that I do get annoyed when someone disparages what I believe to be sacred and holy unless they are asking an honest question, all coming down to their motive and comebacks.

It is often said that the morals of society will shape the government. Therefore I mean, the morals must be VERY IMPORTANT! Currently, our culture and its morals are headed for a nosedive. Taking the government with it no matter who the President is. I suppose God, as He always has in the past,  will take us back to the essential Ten Commandments; back to basics sooner or later.

My epitaph might be something like this: Wife, Mother, Grandmother who made her share of mistakes in life; in the end, finally understood why it took a lifetime to figure out her purpose in life.

French toast, pancakes or waffles? All sounds good to me, but am leaning toward the pancakes, Swedish pancakes, thin and sweet are my favorite.

Each day when I awake, I am always grateful for my faith in God, my family that keeps growing and growing each year with grandchildren and now great-grandchildren connecting to the chain.

Grateful too, I haven’t had to use the new editor here on WordPress YET, I hate figuring out all over again new Internet “stuff.”
