(I couldn’t keep my thoughts in. This is complete word vomit. You don’t have to read this post if you don’t want to.)
Oh, how I hate the hatred.
I usually don’t pour my heart out to people. Honestly, I don’t even really pour my heart out to the closest people around me. I tend to keep my opinions to myself, but when I feel completely overwhelmed I can’t keep it in anymore.
…so anon emailed me for the second time. I was told to “ask God for forgiveness” because I was a “sinner”. Ummmm? I don’t understand this because I firmly believe that no one can deem right and wrong, except for God (or whatever higher entity one believes in). Reprimanding and pointing a finger at me, in my opinion, is an unwarranted judgment. I believe that negatively judging others is more of a sin than me going about my daily life. However, like I said it is not my place to say what a sin is or is not.
Main point to you and to anyone else who hates on others — Stop judging. Stop name calling. Stop the jealousy. Stop the ignorance. Stop the mocking. Stop the stealing. Stop the fighting. Stop the hate.
Although I’m not as religious as others, I wanted to share what Someone amazing left us with, ” ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
- Isn’t it true what religious people say… that God rests in all of our minds and hearts? If that is so, then it would be also true to say to love others… no matter what they look like or what they believe. To those who hate — think about that.
- “Your neighbor” refers to EVERYONE, sinner or non-sinner. Besides, last time I checked, Jesus hung out with the sinners.
I don’t mean to give a lecture on religious beliefs to everyone; I just wanted to express how I feel about this. I don’t mind these emails… actually it keeps me pretty entertained that someone who doesn’t like to read my blog keeps coming back to it. Must mean that I really am fun and inspirational to read, don’t you think?
Anyway, enough of that. I’m gonna promote LOVE by continuing to blog.
I’ve been staying at my parents’ house for the past couple of days. I haven’t really been productive while I’ve been here. I have just been hanging out and getting to do the things that make me feel relaxed. I wanted to share some random pictures I took.
…and the random drawing to the birthday RAK is:
Happy 25th Birthday! Sounds like lots of fun activities planned for it too! Love your layouts and the cute photos of your doggie!!
Congratulations! Please shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your address, so I can get a package mailed out to you for playing along.
