The Cure for All Female Diseases

I know what you're thinking, what cure? How can I truly get the help I need with All of my ailments, my woes, and my insecurities? Well, my dear lady, you are not alone I tell you. You are among millions and billions of women, whom since infancy, are born with millions of eggs and though reached the age of maturity, have not all found out how and with whom to create a union. You see, without proper knowledge of one's anatomy, spiritual being, and psychological state, you will never be able to guard yourself against attacks and fight them when encountered.Dear heart, I must tell you that God loves you so much that He even warns you about your greatest enemy - the devil. He comes in many forms...

Global Cooling

Global Cooling
I like it cold rather than hot.I worry about global cooling.It is going to preserve us all in ice… Cities and nations in the deep freeze. Immobile and unable to fight any more. As relationships between nations chill, big wars appear more imminent.Nuclear war in North Korea seems to be a reasonable conclusion. The people there are cold already from deprivation and diminishment. Their hell is cold…. no Hope, no Truth. Nuclear war leaves nothing behind but eternal cold after enormous heat. Sad.Global warming is not the threat. We are.We are not protesting the evil of terrorism and abuse.Controlling carbon emissions is sound behavior and important. But there are priorities when you lift your hea...

Memorial Day

Memorial Day
Our flag flies at half mast.Our flag.The flag of the United States of America.Our flag allows us to debate, criticize, and protest as much as we want without fear of persecution.It is amazing how much we love to criticize. Media and social networks are ablaze with condemnation. Oh yes, there are stories of good works…. but those headlines are stolen by scandal and criticism, however intellectually cloaked.Freedom of speech is the greatest threat to freedom throughout the world. What we take for granted is feared elsewhere. We are under attack by radical this and that because freedom of speech will destroy their power. Terrorism is applied to those willing to speak. Sad.Graves freshly dug and...

Church State

Church State
Churches are becoming labelled in our educational system as not politically correct… aka evil.Churches are where people congregate to learn about morals, morality, sin, forgiveness, and love… and Truth.But don’t be seen going into one these days. And definitely not if there are any cameras around. Maybe all Christians should wear body cameras like the police? Then we can catch them in the act of spreading their fake stuff.I guess this gets the Middle-Eastern religions off the hook because we would not want to offend them by mandating body cameras on them. For all they do is good and sensitive acts.So what is a church state?Maybe we should have just one state for Christians like Montana. It c...

Enough

Enough
Yes Dear, you have told me that 5 times.Enough.Politicians say the same thing in 20 different ways into 20 different cameras. They just change their ties once in a while.Reporters report on their same questions ad nauseam. No longer do they say “sir” before they ask a question…. And why does their question take 2 minutes to ask in 10 different ways? They are not reporting, they are just repeating the obvious. And why is their “opinion” more expert than the expert’s? Enough.Enough with no respect.Enough with over explaining.Enough with robo-voice prompts that do nothing but shield the company from live interaction.Enough with looking the other way to drug abuse… to child abuse… to women’s abu...

Questions for Cathy # 16: The Glare of Infidelity’s Blind Eye: Who’s most affected?


Which gender is most surprised by infidelity? Men or women? To be fair, we all have certain blind spots, but infidelity is in a category of its own. No one wants to be caught unawares: a double entendre of sorts. Hubby at home doesn’t want to be blindsided by his beloved’s indiscretions, nor does his beloved want to be found out. So, who is more susceptible to wearing blinders or remaining completely in the dark? For the answer, I went to my local LMFT, Cathy Chambliss. I figured she’s probably heard a few of these cases, and I was right.My query:Who turns a blind eye more so to infidelity: Men or women?Cathy:I think men turn a blind eye more to infidelity then women do. I see very little wo...

You’re Fired

“You’re fired!”…..I have heard that several times…And guess what…It was always for the best.Thousands of CEO’s and thousands of maintenance men have been fired for all kinds of reasons…. Many unfair… many because of political whispers from the insecure… get it?What is all the fuss?Come on… it will be replaced by the next crisis that is not a crisis…Aren’t soldier’s sacrifices more newsworthy?Where is all the uproar about child abuse?? Single parent families?The abuse of women in many other cultures is ignored. Let’s fire some of those leaders.Getting fired hurts the pride…. But men get on with getting on…Getting fired should get one fired up!Point your gun to the heavens and get fired Up.###...

My Terms

My Terms
I am going to do everything you ask as long as it is on my terms.I am going to give you money as long as it is on my terms.I am going to give you hope as long as it is on my terms.The problem is that we all want everything on our own terms. With the onset of social media, texting, skype, tweeting, facebook… we all can be friends with people who agree with us. So we build up an ego reinforcing PAC… Personal Admiration Committee that insures we are never wrong.Our country has never been more divided and it is its own fault. Everybody is right. Everyone is yelling. Faces look red and veins blue.In the end one person gets to call the shots. Or maybe one congress if it can unite and rule…..Do we ...

Did Towns Civilise Humans


When we consider the recent terror attacks, the scourge of gang-related knife crime and the higher than average proportion of homelessness in major cities, one has to wonder if urbanisation did indeed civilise humans. There is a theory that the creation of towns, densely populated areas of human interaction by way of trade and skills, was the harbinger of civilisation. Where people of varied backgrounds and cultures came together, a certain liberty also emerged which encouraged the development of trade, religion, philosophy and invention. Those from different tribes found themselves living in harmony within the loosely defined structure of an evolving society.I agree wholeheartedly with the ...

Wellness for Women Over 40 Series: Part 10

Hi, I know you think I have a set of principles to reach your highest potential, and achieve your wildest dreams, right? Well, not exactly. I mean, we must have principles to live by, and the self-discipline to carry them out, thus, whatever we desire to happen in life must come from a place of truth. Let's start with truth: what do you know to be true about yourself? Who are you? Where did you come from? Who do you belong to? Why are you here? Where are you going? Once you can begin to answer and firmly believe in the answers to the preceding questions, life will become one with you. Yes, you will know that you are life, and you do life, it doesn't do you!Indeed, when we fail to realize tha...

Widowmaker

Widowmaker
Something hasn’t been right for a while.A gnawing feeling of mortality.And then I was on a Caribbean beach every day.Walking from the water 15 yards on soft sand I could barely make it to the chair. A dizziness?? Ignored it. It’s been going on for a good while. Flew home and was given a “procedure” to install my 4th stent in a new dedicated operating room right out of a science fiction movie. A monitor, 4 feet by 5 feet, was positioned just inches from me where my doctor focused his skills. It led him to my “Widowmaker” Artery. Google it.This is the arterial junction between the right and the left main heart arteries. I had 80% Blockage. Heart attack territory.The right and the left arteries...

Wellness for Women Over 40: Part 9

Essentially there are two kinds of leaders, those who command respect and those who demand respect. However, being a leader in this modern era requires much skill, patience and prayer in order to make an impact on the lives of the people we serve. Women are called to lead in the home, and at times at large.Now a days, it seems like everything we know and care about is politically charged and has racial under tones more than ever. So how do you as a woman think, speak and act to help bring peace, and a sense of order in your homes, work place and even your church? Well, there are no solid answers to this question as you are not responsible for how others behave and choose to display their emo...

Irrelevant

irrelvant
How important is the irrelevant?Crazy question?First… one has to know what is important.The older we get the wiser we supposedly get… hmm…But who determines what is wise? If it were left to us we can be sure some of our beliefs were backasswords. And Mr. Murphy will hopefully set us straight.The political discourse these days… if you want to dignify it as such is disgusting. No more respect for any institution or person. Manners out the window. What is relevant is mocked. Hoods are worn to hide identity. Shame on them. Cowards to their belief.Life is a journey to find the relevant. To find what you can believe in. To find Truth that transcends folly. From poverty to wealth, from pain to joy,...

When a Relationship Is Over, That Ship Has Sailed by Miss Know It All


 Miss Know It AllSome people go into a relationship with their eyes wide shut and have to learn, early on, that not all hook-ups will end happily ever after. Yet, someone will continue to force a person to remain in a union that is not working and probably never will, no matter how hard a man or woman may want the bond to continue.  When’s over, it’s over. Don’t dwell over spilled milk, and never jump into another relationship until you’ve given yourself enough time to analyze why the relationship ended so badly, and what lessons can be learned from the breakup. Whatever bad issues you had with an ex-lover, leave it in the past. You know the saying: “We were two ships passing in the night bu...

Wellness for Women Over 40: Part 8

Success is relative, what it means to you will be the opposite to someone else. Hence, it is defined by the way you communicate it, act on it and eventually how you become it. So how does one become successful you ask? Well, what if I told you that we all are successful. Yes, we all are successful. You see, as long as we are above ground, we all are successful. Those that are deceased know nothing about success, the emotions that surround the desires to be successful and the ability to determine the depth and breath of success, because they know nothing. So it's only the living that can measure success on their own journey and at some point, realize that no matter the circumstance, rich or p...

Wellness for Women Over 40 Series: Part 7

Greetings Ladies and friends, it's me Crystal again with another take on how women should consider their transition into full adulthood. You see it's all a matter of growing up and growing in sync with the mind, body, and spirit. When we detach ourselves from our spiritual nature we become distracted and perplexed with aging, body image, and emotional baggage. This is not godly at all. In fact, it is sinful, hence premature aging, caused by stress overload. Another part of our life we should not neglect and rather treat very sensitively is relationships. You see were created to have a relationship with God, and one another. We are reminded to" Humble ourselves, therefore, under God's mighty ...

Wellness for Women Over 40 Series: Part 6

Honestly, talking about sex is not the easiest thing for most people to do, male and female alike, but no matter the discomfort we have to come to grips with talking about the obvious, sexuality. Feminine sexuality is a topic that must be had, and I'm sure you would agree, needs a little more respect. You see, sex by name, and by action is probably the most abused in all of the human existence. For, its sole purpose is misconstrued, elasticated, and taken way out of context even in the simplest conversations. So, can we talk about sex? How do we express ourselves sexually without being seen as a whore, or not being sexual enough? Is there a right and wrong way of expressing our sexual desire...
