Utopian Dreams

Posted 09-16-2010 at 01:27 PM by caninemom3

What would happen if one day every human creature on Earth woke up without hatred in their souls ? What would happen if ALL political parties stopped calling each other names and making accusations ? What would happen if we stopped noticing what is different about one another like race, creed, religion, sexual prefrerence, etc., and just related to one another as fellow humans ?? What would happen if we all started working together for our Country, for the Earth, for each other in order to make all the wonderful changes we could make ?? What would happen if we really DID love one another as the Master said we should, if our common purpose in life were to help each other along through life instead of thinking ME, ME, ME all the time and fighting each other ?? What if there were no more abused, tortured, abandoned children and animals ?? What if we took care of our senior citizens with the respect, love and kindness they deserve ??

These are but utopian thoughts, I know that....

Screaming At God

Posted 09-08-2010 at 01:00 PM by caninemom3
Tags brat

I have had this on my mind the last few days and debated on writing about it. I do not want to offend anyone but after all, our blogs are supposed to express our thoughts. Here goes. I don't know about anyone else here but occasionally I find myself so mad at God I could spit nails !! This may actually be for things He is or is not responsible for but He gets the blame nonetheless when I have a fit. There have been times when I have LITERALLY screamed at Him and yes, though I hate to admit it, have called Him, the Lord Almighty, every unsavory name in the book (and NOT the good book !) I have even shaken my fist at the sky screaming like a lunatic. I am not proud of this. Not at all. It is simply something that occurs sometimes.

For a while I was taught that you NEVER do this. NEVER blaspheme, if that is what I have done. But I do it. I just get fed up sometimes with things in this life. Fed up with good people suffering or being taken away too soon. Fed up with prejudice,...

My life and the book of eli

Posted 08-31-2010 at 01:10 PM by caninemom3
Tags eli

I actually feel inspired today. I have felt that way for a few days. In my last blog I was so sad but today I feel good, hopeful and I am not sure really why. You are going to think this is odd, but I believe this newfound hopefulness is all because of a movie I watched. It is called [I]The Book Of Eli. [/I]It stars Denzel Washington as Eli and the best actor to ever play a villain, Gary Oldman. I don't want to give away too much here in case any of you want to see it. It is about Eli who is a nomad, walking steadily to the West. In the beginning of the movie it is made clear there has been an apocalyptic event and the world is no longer like it has been. Money is not of value any longer but things like playing cards and lighters are !! Eli is on a mission from God and it is his mission to take his Book to the West for God's purpose. Though it is a fairly violent movie at times (which I hate, especially the first few minutes) it still inspires. As Eli continues on his quest to deliver...

Talking To The Master

Posted 08-09-2010 at 09:41 PM by caninemom3
Tags jesus

I had made a post to a thread here on the site called "Christmas Present Take Or Pass". I had posted the gift of being able to talk with any historic figure. George Broderick Jr.'s answer really started me thinking and thank goodness for George for posting it. He listed one of the people he would like to talk to as Jesus. What a wonderful conversation that would be !! To ACTUALLY talk face to face with HIM !! I imagine myself sitting across from Him. I can see him in my mind's eye. He has hair to His shoulders and of course a beard and He has the kindest and saddest eyes I could ever imagine. To be in His physical presence would be so peaceful, so full of a glowing kind of love I think. The kind of love not found on this earth, not ever experienced by me. Of course, He would have the scars from His first time on this earth. What would I say ?? Would I have the courage to speak ?? I think I would want to tell Him that I know I need to be more like Him. I would ask him why He even...

Peacefulness On A Hot Summer Day

Posted 07-31-2010 at 07:31 PM by caninemom3
Tags mass

Today was such a wonderful day. A very satisfying day. Earlier in the day I went grocery shopping and ran errands with my husband. Later on, since I am Catholic, I attended Mass. Now, as a Catholic I am SUPPOSED to attend Mass every week, but I don't. No excuses here. I am at fault and I admit it. When I got to church it was so peaceful inside. After making my apologies to my Heavenly Father a great calm came over me. There was time before Mass started so I was able to sit and reflect somewhat. It seemed to me that perhaps instead of all this fighting humans do about which demonination is right or wrong or which religion is right or wrong, maybe we should be focusing on the really important factor - GOD. All this fighting is contrary to His message - LOVE ONE ANOTHER. To me God has always, always meant love AND TOLERANCE. To me, Jesus was extremely tolerant in his Earthly mission. Can you imagine if He had not been ?? I can't explan it, and you will probably think I am a little crazy and...
