Dear MM Bloggers,

 

If you have "Survived" yet ANOTHER "End Of The World"...... Please contact your Princess here and inform me of your status!! I'm "HOPING" Everyone is okay!! ;)

 

When I was a little girl, my mother was convinced by her JW "cult," the end of the world was coming on a certain day in 1975. Incredibly, I SURVIVED this "END" @ the ripe young age of 8!! (Can you imagine the FEAR I felt living as a child thinking I was going to die? And "Armageddon" in their eyes was to be a horrific death!! And if I recall, there were some issues with Russia at the time and I just knew I was going to be blown up by nuclear bombs because my mother always had the news on!!) Now maybe you know why I dislike following politics and history... I was convinced my house would be raided just like Hitler did with the Jews.. and I was taught I was not allowed to "fight back," as killing was "wrong." Jeez.. Thinking about it, it's a wonder I am half sane people!! LOL... 

 

Additionally, I will have you know, I Survived when the calendar changed for 2000 and the World was to shut down. In fact, I was on my computer at exactly midnight to "unplug it" in case it started acting wierd! BWahahahahaha!! (Oh, and I didnt have money in the bank.. Not because I was worried over the Millenium changing my wealth status..... but I preferred my $7.56 be on my person!) 

 

And now I awoke to see I have "Survived" once again... 

 

I AM SIMPLY AMAZING!!! 

 

So if any of you have "Survived," please hit me up! I feel like I am in that Will Smith movie seeking Survivors. Hope I don't start speaking to manicans! People already look at me oddly when I talk to myself at Wal-Mart... 

 

Well, I survived and I wanted to let you guys know! Your Princess is safe and sound.. in Columbia.. That's South Carolina folks, not the country! HeeHee~~

 

AND NOW MAYBE YOU KNOW WHY I PREFER FAIRY TALES WITH HAPPY ENDINGS??? 

 

Now where did I hide my crown? (I didn't want anyone to take it in case I was invaded, so I hid it!) Bwahahahahaha! 

 

~~MERRY CHRISTMAS EVE ALL~~

Quoting rmac22:

With all respect, whether you or I approve of the great majority of the non-Christian citizens of our country taking part in all the Holiday madness save the Christian belief makes little difference.  The simple fact is that they do. 

 

They buy gifts for their children and other loved ones.  They put up Christmas trees.  They have and attend Holiday parties.  They have family get-togethers and dinners. 

 

Not just atheists and agnostics.  My Muslim friends do.  My Jewish friends do although they normally center it around the Jewish holiday Chanukah.  I have no idea what modern day Pagans do. 

 

My Church is stuffed for the Christmas Eve candle light service.  Standing room only.  Are all of those folks Christians – I doubt it.  Should we deny them entrance?  Per my understanding that would be a sin. 

 

RMac



Of course we shouldn't deny them and it's my fault for not explaining further how I feel about it. One point I will make now is that it is nice to enjoy a nice, gift giving and receiving holiday. I wish those people would visit a church during some of the other religious observances.

During Holy Friday when we remember that Jesus was suffering on the cross, will we find pagans, non-believers,etc. visiting the church? No we won't but we will find them celebrating Easter!! I do type these statements as a Christian who longs for others to have the faith I do but not where I am standing on any podium and pointing my finger, I don't work that way.

Quoting Hoping4Love2000:

Hey JEN... 

 

I can certainly understand not being able to make a relationship work with an atheist with our beliefs. But I do feel, if one is a Christian, it would be more prudent to follow what the Bible says and only date Christians. It discusses this in a scripture regading "yolking" with same, so had I known you that is what I would have advised you. 

 

I see Christians not following what the Bible says all the time, so I "get" that being a Christian does not exempt anyone from being human and we are still just as fallable as anyone else, though I think some agnostic / atheist hold against Christians when we do wrong. Being a believer only makes us hold Faith in Jesus... Doesn't make us perfect!  I'd love to smack some atheist now and again, as well as some Christians who are "Holier than Thou!" But I guess that would make me a "bad Christian!" LOL.. Jeez. Is there any winning!! ;)

 

I was a very nice agnostic woman, and did tons for the PTA and community etc.. The only true differences now have been that I am "saved" (for lack of better word) in my eyes is I do try harder to be a good girl than if I didn't believe. BUT I STILL FAIL MISERABLY EVERY DAY.... 

 

JEN, I understand where you are coming from w/ your thoughts on others going against their convictions, but I will say this... (and try to keep an open mind here... LOL.. )

 

Although I did not believe all those years I was "celebrating"..... I was adamantly agnostic.... There was a certain "feeling" I got when I was a small part of what "others" (Christians) believed in... The love and joy I saw others feel was contagious! I think that might be RMAC's point?

 

It may have taken me almost 30 years to get the "feeling" Christians get...... But what a beautiful journey and how much more special these joyous occasions are to me now. I once only cherished spending time with my children and their father's family and now I get to celebrate Christmas with Jesus too! ;) 

 

I had the best Christmas ever this past year! My daughters drove from Charlotte to see me and brought a surprise with them.. My son had made the trip from Florida! JEN... my 2 eldest children are agnostic, as is their Father... But now that I believe, I would never take away the opportunity to "show" them how I feel about celebrating the birth of Jesus!!

 

I know they see my JOY (Jesus / Others / Yourself) and one day I hold HOPE they too, will share my FAITH!! ;) 



Hi Hope, thanks for your comment. I wonder how I must come across sometimes because I don't fully type all the details in my posts. I would NEVER exclude anyone from partaking in any observance, especially a Christmas celebration! That would be the opposite of being a Christian!  And showing anyone how we feel about Christmas and why is always good.

 

Obviously being in a relationship with an athiest was something different though. He kept quiet initially about being an athiest but he knew about me right off the bat and since I had already somewhat fallen for him, I decided to be open-minded and give him a chance.

 

I don't know how prevalent this is in some other states but where I live in California, it seems the minority are Christians so I have very few Christian friends and it's challenging to find any Christian men I would want to date here. Of course it doesn't help that I live in a bedroom community, it isn't a very diverse city,etc.

 

I'm glad your Christmas turned out so well! As far as your kids go, having patience helps a lot. I am patiently waiting for my 25 year old daughter to learn a couple important things,lol, still waiting! I hope it happens in my lifetime, sooner would be better! I am very happy to hear that you definitely got the Christmas Spirit :)

Quoting Hope: 

 

“ I did miss part of your sentence sir. The part where you stated the children had to be assisted with their list? Were you meaning they were ill and needed surgeries? Or they had selfish people helping them compile their list and they were unreasonable in their request? “

 

Hope – I meant it in the sense that they needed to have help with their list.  Either they did not know what they were asking for, or they did not know that if you ask for too much you get nothing. 

 

It is easy to see how such could happen.  Poor child thinks all he (she) has to do is ask for it.  He (she) thinks everyone not poor like them is rich, really rich.  No sense of reality.

 

I have a friend who grew up thinking all “white folks” were wealthy.  No such thing as poor “white folks.”

 

I am someone who grew up on the ragged edge of poverty.  We did not know we were poor.  Quite the contrary, we thought we were rich.  Because we thought so, so did a lot of other folks.  I am pretty sure my father and mother knew. 

 

Looking back all the signs are there.  Just that Mom and Dad were really really good at making us feel secure.

RMAC... As I have stated previously...  A WISE OWL... ;)

 

That was precisely WHY I wrote the removed blog... 

 

I wanted to know if people celebrated even if they didn't "believe" B/C I certainly did. There was a certain "warmth" regardless... 

 

I read the Bible the same as you..... 

 

To turn one away is a sin...

 

I don't typically go "all God" in the forum; however, due to recent events and now this matter being discussed, and the fact this is my blog.... I am reminded of the "Lost Sheep" ...

 

I hold no doubt RMAC, many of the individuals standing in your church for Christmas service were merely "Lost Sheep" trying to find a "flock" to fit in. 

 

It is my belief this is when we not only welcome them; we stand up, grab their hand, and escort them to our own chair.

 

There has been a lot of filth and nasty chatter filling the forum the past 2 months, and the saddest part for me? I think there was a lost sheep among us who is now further out in the wilderness...

Quoting Jenkneee:

With all respect, I do not think that pagans, Wiccans, athiests ,etc. should celebrate any aspect of Christmas. They are not holding true to their beliefs or lack of them. You should not enjoy what comes with a Christian observance unless you practice being a Christian. Do pagans walk around with ashes on their foreheads on Ash Wednesday? I don't think so!

 

I broke up with an athiest before Christmas (a few years ago) because I realized I couldn't be with someone who faked Christmas, the true meaning of Christmas needed to be shared. It was too important for me not to share that belief even though he was a respectful athiest , he WAS still an athiest.

Quoting rmac22:

Why would you suppose that atheists and agnostics don’t celebrate Christmas?  At least in the US almost everyone has latched on to the commercial idea of Christmas and engages in it with a vengeance.  Buying and giving gifts to all their loved ones.  It is a nice thing to do even if you do not engage any of the various Christian doctrines and celebrations concerning Christmas.

 

 

 

Putting up Christmas trees and having family and friends in for parties, and of course the family holiday dinners.  I have no illusion that the atheists and agnostics miss out on all of that.  There is no reason that they should. 

 

 

 

One of the saddest things is to hear the pleas prior to Christmas from folks newly or not so newly poor who want desperately to find a way to give toys and nice things to their children at Christmas.  Some, but not all of these folks are Christians.  Never is there enough money to cover all those who need help.  There are surgeries that can’t be paid for.  Cars that need to be repaired so that fathers and/or mothers can get to work.  The list and the needs go on and on.

 

 

 

The Marines, the police, and other agencies collect toys, but it must not be enough or it does not get to everyone, or something. 

 

 

 

There was a gift tree at a place I once worked.  On it were wish lists from poor children for Christmas gifts.  You could select one of the lists and make one child happy.  That was the idea. 

 

 

 

I thought one year, I can do that, I can make one child happy.  Sadly, those children needed someone to help them compile their lists.  The things on their lists cost several hundred dollars each. 

 

 

 

I know that at other places such trees work well.  The lists are something that you or I could easily satisfy.  Make one child happy.

 

 

 

RMac


HI RMAC... 

 

I have given away presents for the "angel tree," as well as done the shoebox thing before, (you fill shoebox for a child), and I have also done charity events when I was an officer in a community charity... It is a great feeling to help those who can't help themselves... especially the babies! ;)

 

I was wondering what agnostic or atheist did for Christmas, as I only starting believing in CHRIST a few years ago, but I always celebrated since I left home.. I am contacting MM to find out WHY they took my blog down. It was written tastefully and was sincere and was not the least bit offensive, so I am pretty irked about it!

 

Unlike so many Christians who seem to hold no room in their hearts for others beliefs, I am not one of them. The Bible tells us not all will believe, so why would I be "fool" enough to argue with non-believers? Additonally, the Bible tells us NOT to judge or argue with non-believers, regardless of how they act toward us. It was one woman's UNCONDITIONAL LOVE and her following the oath the Bible says to follow which led me the path I am on. (The "J" road! LOL) Time and again she would mention Jesus etc.. and I would laugh at her. (Not like in a bad way.. but I told her she was crazy, there was no way all that stuff happened in the Bible, and yada yada) She never once tried to "preach" her belief down my throat or made me feel as less of a person for not holding Faith. And she followed the Bibles words not to argue with me. I had gotten so disgusted with so many Christians doing things I KNEW the Bible was against, that I was turned off for 30 years. But this woman was different. In fact, we were such great friends over 12 years, she saw me at my A-game and then when the ball fouled out of the park! HER LOVE NEVER WAVERED!! (and I was a bit crazy for a while.. But she showed me God as Love!!) 

 

I would laugh when she told me, "You are an angel." I'd say, "Karen, I can't be an angel dear. I don't even believe in God. I swear you Jesus people are fruit loops!" And she'd say, "Nope. I see in you what God sees. You are an angel and you have helped me learn a lot. He has plans for you." I'd roll my eyes and say, "Do those plans include sex and alcohol, cause that's what I feel I "need!" SHE STILL LOVED ME no matter how often I denied God or how many times I left the room when Joyce Meyer came on!! She was the epitome of "tolerance" and "patience." :))))) 

 

Well anyway, I celebrated Christmas and other holidays like Easter UNAWARE of their "real meaning." But there must have been something in me that said it "felt right" to celebrate. 

 

Sometimes you just have to fake it to make it! That's my motto!! ;)

 

I did miss part of your sentence sir. The part where you stated the children had to be assisted with their list? Were you meaning they were ill and needed surgeries? Or they had selfish people helping them compile their list and they were unreasonable in their request? 

 

As always RMAC.. Thanks for chiming in !! :)

I'm a little late but I have survived it all. The holidays, December 21st, and now the fiscal cliff. I still hold hope for our government. No pun intended. :-)

All seasons, but it wasn't! I am glad ot see your positive outlook JOHN.. It isn't always easy, but being positive can certainly change our life!

CURIOUS! Face it! YOu just have to keep everyone in line! You leave for a while and all heck breaks lose!! 

RMAC!!! Thanks for reporting sir!! So glad you made it!! I'm putting you in charge of the potato salad for DAKOTA'S "GRILL DOWN!"

Okay, now for a funny... (was just reminded of White House) 

My status on a social network Christmas night was:

Dear ALL.... Santa wanted me to send his apologies for all the presents being late this year. As it turns out.... We had many "Bags of Coal" to deliver slowing down our process ... We are currently delayed at THE WHITE HOUSE!! *Scooby Snickers!

(Can you imagine the FEAR I felt living as a child thinking I was going to die? And "Armageddon" in their eyes was to be a horrific death!!

Now maybe you know why I dislike following politics and history... I was convinced my house would be raided just like Hitler did with the Jews.. and I was taught I was not allowed to "fight back," as killing was "wrong." Jeez.. Thinking about it, it's a wonder I am half sane people!! LOL... 

 

Additionally, I will have you know, I Survived when the calendar changed for 2000 and the World was to shut down. In fact, I was on my computer at exactly midnight to "unplug it" in case it started acting wierd! BWahahahahaha!! (Oh, and I didnt have money in the bank.. Not because I was worried over the Millenium changing my wealth status..... but I preferred my $7.56 be on my person!) 

 

And now I awoke to see I have "Survived" once again... 

 

I AM SIMPLY AMAZING!!! 

 

So if any of you have "Survived," please hit me up! I feel like I am in that Will Smith movie seeking Survivors. Hope I don't start speaking to manicans! People already look at me oddly when I talk to myself at Wal-Mart... 

 

Well, I survived and I wanted to let you guys know! Your Princess is safe and sound.. in Columbia.. That's South Carolina folks, not the country! HeeHee~~

 

AND NOW MAYBE YOU KNOW WHY I PREFER FAIRY TALES WITH HAPPY ENDINGS??? 

 

Now where did I hide my crown? (I didn't want anyone to take it in case I was invaded, so I hid it!) Bwahahahahaha! 

 

~~MERRY CHRISTMAS EVE ALL~~ 



What a nut you are, Hope.  ROFLMAO. 

 

I, too, survived the End of the World.

 

And did you know?  Does ANYONE know?  Little known fact, actually:  The Mayans did NOT predict the end of the world on 12-whatever it was-2012.  They simply ended their calendar there because they considered the date after their calendar ended to be the start of a new world order.  Why they didn't get around to chronicaling that new world order, I don't know. 

 

All I know is that they didn't predict the world would end when their first calendar ended on whatever-it-was 2012. I'm pretty sure there's an article there that explains it.  If not, just Google the topic.  If you've the energy and inclination.
