Only bad news

This past Wednesday as soon as I woke up the first thing I hear was the sad news of the High school stabbing in Pennsylvania, the week before that was the shooting at Fort Hood, Texas, yesterday a fire in Chile. Sincerely! No matter where you go there is always  bad news, it appears that the sky is falling and the people suffer for no reason. Listening to the news is very depressing, there is no good news only tragedies, people suffering all over the world and some wonder… what is happening?

Rest assured it is not the end of the world, although it may look like it is and so many have lost hope for the same reason, and while we have more questions than answers all I can say is that: “[God] will wipe away the tears from [your] eyes, and there will be no death, nor mourning, nor crying, nor pain, because all the old has gone” Revelation 21:4

Although it may not seem like there is hope, we do have hope and one day there will be no more pain and suffering, but while we wait we must continue praying to our Father for He is faithful to His promises, and you are not alone.

DON’T QUIT

When things go wrong as they sometimes will.
When the road you’re drudging seems all uphill.
When the funds are low, and the debts are high,
and you want to smile but you have to sigh.
When care is pressing you down a bit.
Rest if you must but don’t you quit!

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
as everyone of us sometimes learns.
And many a failure turns about.
When he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow –
you may succeed with another blow.

Success is failure turned inside out –
the silver tint of the cloud of doubt.
And you never can tell how close you are.
It may be near when it seems so far.
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit-
it’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.

—Rudyard Kipling

What do I want for us?

After last week I was preparing for an uproar but nothing happened, this can only mean three things  one, everyone agrees with me, second no one cares or third no one is reading my post (although this last one does not seem accurate because I know people are reading them)  so, it’s either number one or two, still I hope someone cares enough to say something.

Anyway,

Like I said in my last post,  I wasn’t  created from the males head to be above them, nor was I created from his feet either to be trampled, I was created from a rib, to be by his side, and to complement each other. So,  I’m no equal to any male therefore I do not want equality, but what is it exactly that I want.  I only want three things.  Fairness, justice and respect!

1.- Fairness; especially in our jobs. It is not fair that males get paid more than females for doing the same job. It is more sad that in some professions females discriminate among females and prefer males to do the job, I have seen this so many times, especially in nursing, the Director of Nursing or the Nurse supervisor ALWAYS prefer the males and these directors and supervisors are usually females; That is not fair!  WE deserve fairness!  we deserve to be paid for the job we do, not for our gender, there is a huge gap that needs to be fix, and it has to begin with us (yes ladies I’m talking to you!)

2.- Justice; just because we are females that does not mean we should let everyone abuse us physically and or emotionally.  It saddens me every time I hear “oh well boys will be boys” what does that mean!  What are we suppose to be? Especially when I read the news and see sexual abusers get away with it. No sir that is not fair and we deserve Justice!

3.- Respect; we all choose how to live our lives, what or in whom to believe, if someone decides to be a housewife please respect that, if a lady decided to be a petrochemical engineer respect that. Now a days it seems that the role of the females in our society is being undermined, no matter what they do they are always looked down on. We are pretty important not only for human preservation, but for a whole lot of things. So, please respect us!

So at the end  as I said in the beginning I only want  fairness, justice and respect, but this is not only for us (the ladies) this is for every single human being in the earth, we ALL deserve this much because guess what,  we are not created equal!

And you my friend, what do you want?

I DON’T WANT EQUALITY!

WARNING: I hesitated posting this because I do not want to offend anyone. Still, I will speak up my mind regarding this topic, and I think I have the right to do so because I am a woman, so I most likely speaking on my behalf. So, if you are sensitive on this topic and want equality for all women, please DO NOT continue reading and find out why I do not want equality for Women since I do not want to offend you.

So, here I go…

When I was in high school I was so naive, I believe I could change the world, if I only had the power I was going to solve all the inequality issues in the world, and I wasn’t alone in that journey, I had a group of classmates that believed the same thing as me, little did I know.

As much as I defended equality back them, I sincerely said today “I don’t want equality for women!”  I don’t want to be equal to any male.  Why? Because…

First of all we were not created equal, I truly believe I’m was created by The Elohim of Abraham, and Jacob,  yes by The great I AM Jehovah, indeed He is my creator and when He made me He decided to make me different not equal. At this point you don’t even have to believe in God, to see that males and females are not physiologically equal, or are they? Of course not! We don’t have the same strength nor the same feebleness, physiologically speaking we the women can have children’s, men can’t.  I could go on and on, about this topic, but if you are curious, search it and you will be surprised at how different we are. But we are not different to be set apart, we are different to complement each other, and that is the beauty of it.  Just because I don’t have the physical strength that my husband has does not mean I’m weak or less than him, we complement each other!

Secondly,  the equality thing makes it look like I’m in a contest, it seems as though we have declare war on each other, and yes we want to wear the pants in the family, seriously? If we search in the scriptures we find several bible verses that said that the husband is the head, let’s not forget that we are the neck. And what moves the head? Isn’t it the neck? Let’s don’t forget that  “Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.”(Proverbs 14:1 KJV)

Third, I don’t want equality for women, because I wasn’t  created from the males head to be above them, nor was I created from his feet either to be trampled on, I was created from a rib, to be by his side, and to complement each other, The Lord can never be mistaken in His creation.

Therefore, I don’t want equality because WE ARE NOT EQUAL, not less not more than any male.

Next week I’ll be letting you know what exactly it is that I want and why, meanwhile tell me my dear friend; what do you want for women?

I Don’t Have Any Dreams!

Not so long ago I was being interviewed and I was asked; do you have any dreams? And I said; no, I don’t have any dreams, the interviewer looked at me all confused, and I just smiled at her. In reality, I have so many dreams and hopes, but I have learned that it does not matter how many dreams I have, and it does not matter how well I plan to make them come true, if the Lord has different plans for me then my dreams will not become a reality.

So, I learned that He has bigger dreams for me. I only let Him know my dreams but I let Him dream for me, because I know, He has better things for me. That does not mean that I have no goals, I have one too many, but I have let the Lord guide my life completely. It is not easy, because sometimes I get excited with certain things, and they just don’t happen, still the Lord knows what is best for me, and He will always provide because he wants me to be the beginning and not the end. Having dreams is wonderful, but letting the Lord to dream with you is priceless, because he knows what is best for you, and He will bless you according to His will and for His glory.

And you, do you have any dreams?

Madness

I do not want to love you,

forbidden love,

crazy love,

wounded love. .

I do not want to love you,

love of no one,

love of everyone,

love? … Who knows?

I do not want to love you!,

I cry awake,

I close my eyes

and I love you more.

I do not want to love you,

you did not sought me,

just go alone …

Leave me in peace!

Absent love

I cry for a crazy love that does not exist,

and I refuse to write these sad verses.

And even if I cry and cry

for something that does not exist.

I’m dying without thinking…

Why did you come?

Slowly

Little by little

I’m saving your memories.

Little by little

I forgot you’re not here.

Little by little

I die in silence,

and I live … perhaps …

ensuring …

even I know,

you will not comeback.

Looking

What did you lose?

     —an angel sweetly asks me—

What do you look for incessantly, taciturn?

 

I answer:

I was looking for the time that left unannounced,

the love that enter without saying goodbye

and the tear that was lost when you left.

Move on and Move Forward!

Amazingly January is almost over. It seems like yesterday when we just welcomed the New Year and yet it seems like we are still living in the past. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I’m pretty sure that many of us are still writing 2013 instead of 2014, for some reason it takes time to get adjusted to the new year, after all it was a whole year! So while we are still hanging on to the past; don’t you think today is a good day to move on and move forward?

Forget about the past, forget about what you didn’t do and still hope you can fix, yesterday is history and today is a gift, that is why it is called the present. Yes! Today is a great day to begin, move on and move forward with your life and be happy, life is too short to be wasted. Remember “[the Lord] will show you the path of life; In [His] presence [your life] is full of joy; At [His] right hand are pleasures forevermore” Psalms 16:11 KJV

Don’t dwell in past, move on and move forward! 😉
