That saying is on a little plaque given to me by Grandmom and it’s so fitting. We are happily settling down (finally!!??) in our cute, little home, and God-willing, our forever home, after moving so many times over the past few years. And just in time for spring and planting flowers, herbs, and of course GOURDS! Hope we get a good crop like we had down in North Carolina. At least living in rural south Jersey feels like living down south, but we’re still in my beloved state of New Jersey!

After Newtown and Boston I found myself getting more and more disgusted with all the gun violence in our country. I wanted to become involved in the fight for more gun control by reaching out to national and grassroots campaigns and contacting my state legislators. As I listened to the news and personal stories of victims, read blogs and Facebook pages, I decided to create my own Facebook page devoted to the gun control cause. I thought that posting and highlighting gun crime news in my area and around the nation could be a constant reminder why more gun control is so important and necessary. I also post other articles and photos but my main purpose is to post daily gun crime stories. This is my way of contributing to the cause and honoring victims of gun violence.

There was a time when southern preachers argued FOR slavery because it was God’s will, the same way people preach today AGAINST gay rights.
The same people preaching against gay marriage have pre-marital sex, commit adultery and get divorced, which according to the Bible are all sins. Hmmm. Jesus said, “He without sin cast the first stone.” He also said to love your neighbor as yourself. How will people know the love of Christ if we don’t show them?
Living the way God wants us to live is not found only in trying to fulfill the law. It is impossible to do anyway. This world and all of us in it are full of sin. But the way to live for God IS done by Loving One Another as God Loved Us. When we are IN HIS LOVE, then our lives on the outside match up with His Love that resides inside us.
My thoughts exactly (and I have to use Colbert’s picture again):

Ask yourself what the Tea Party’s agenda is. The answer is genocide. They want anyone who cannot afford insurance to die. They want old people to die so they don’t have to fund SS. They want blacks to die because they are racist. They don’t want to help the low income in any way. They tell them to help themselves by getting a job but they don’t take into account that many people work low wage jobs that leave them without healthcare or enough to even pay their rent. They don’t care because they want you to die. If you aren’t rich enough to afford what they can afford you should die. Your life has no value unless you have money. Money, not Jesus is their God.
Yet they hide under the banner of Christianity. This folks, is the anti-christ.
